DYE, TOMMIE - Near Marysville, Illinois, on the 19th ult. after a lingering illness, little Tommie, only child of J. C. and Alice Dye, and grandson of Mr. J. M. Dye of this vicinity, aged one year and five months.

Thou gavest and we yield to thee,

God of the human heart!

For bitter though grief's cup may be,

Thou givest us but our part.

O, thou canst bid our grief be stilled,

Yet not rebuke our tears,

How large a place his presence filled!

How vacant it appears
