Miss Annabel Harries, aged 20, daughter of ex-Congressman Harries, died of quick consumption at Caledonia, Minn.

HARRIES: At her home in this place Wednesday, January 10th, 1894, Annabel Harries, second daughter of W. H. and A. L. Harries, of consumption at the age or 20 years, 10 months and 25 days. Miss Annabel Harries was born in this place Feb. 15, 1873 and grew up here a favorite among her mates and loved and respected by all who knew her for her cheerful and kindly disposition. After completing her studies here she went to Carleton College at Northfield for several years where by faithful attention to her studies and her pure life she gained the love of her teachers and fellow students. August 4th, 1888 she united with the Presbyterian church of this place of which she was faithful member to the time of her death. She was a young lady of lofty purposes and high ambition, and her life was full of promise of service to every good cause. Everything that the best medical skill and experience could do failed to stay the course of the dread disease that slowly but surely destroyed her young and beautiful life. During all her long illness she remained hopeful and cheerful, bearing all things with Christian fortitude, and met death with entire resignation and an unquestioning faith in her Savior. As the gates on the other shore opened for her she said: "Dear papa, I never knew loved you so much. I would like to live longer, if I could be a help to you who have been so good to me, but if God wants me, I am ready and willing to go." And with her arms entwined about her beloved father's neck her spirit took its flight. The blessed memory of her happy, Christian life comes as a holy benediction to assuage the grief of the bereaved family, in whose great sorrow the entire community shares. "There Is no death! What seems so transition:

This life of mortal breath Is but a suburb of the life elyslan.
Whose portal we call Death. She Is not dead, the child of our affection,
But gone, unto that school Where she no longer needs our poor protion
And Christ himself doth rule. But a fair maiden. In her Father's mansion.
Clothed with celestial grace
And beautiful with all the soul's expansion Shall we behold her face.
And though, at times, impetuous emotion And anguish long suppressed,
The swelling heart heaves moaning and like the , That cannot rest.
We will be patient, and assuage the feeling We may not wholly stay
By silence sanctifying, not concealing, The grief that must have way."
