Died-Alice daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.H. Harries, of pneumonia, on Saturday, February 21st, 1891. Born November 9, 1888. Her little life saw only the sunshine of parental care and sisterly affection and knew nought of sin, of want, or disappointment or any of the world's sorrows.

Go to thy rest fair child
Go to thy dreamless bed,
While yet no gentle, undefiled,
With blessings on thy head.
Fresh roses in thy hand,
Buds on thy pillow laid,
Haste from this dark and fearful land.
Where flowers so quickly fade.
Ere sin had scared her breast,'
Or sorrow worked the tear,
Rise to thy throne of changeless rest.
In you celestial sphere!
Because thy smile was fair,
Thy lip and eye no bright.
Because thy loving cradle-care
Was such a dear delight,
Shall love, with weak embrace,
Thy upward wing detain?
No! gentle angel, seek thy place
Amid the cherub train."

Caledonia Argus, 28 February 1891
