When on my day of life the night is falling, And in the winds from unsunned spaces blown. I hear £ar voices out of darkness calling My feet to paths unknown. Thou who hast made my home of life so pleasant. Leave not its tenant when its walls decay ; () Love Divine. O Helper ever present. Be Thou my strength and stay ! Be near me when all else is from me drifting: Earth, sky, home’s pictures, days of shade and shine. And kindly faces to my own uplifting 'The love which answers mine. I have but Thee, my Father ! let Thy spirit Be with me then to comfort and uphold ; No gate of pearl, no branch of palm I merit. Nor street of shining gold. Suffice it if—my good and ill unreckoned. And both forgiven through Thy unbound-ing grace— 1 find mvselt by hands familiar beckoned I nto my fitting place. Some humble door among thy many mansions. Some sheltering shade where sin and striving cease, .\nd flows forever through heaven’s green expansions The river of Thy peace. There, from the music round about me stealing, I fain would learn the new and holy song, .\nd find at last, beneath Thy trees of healing. The life for which I long. John Ci. Whittier.

'The house of Mrs. Welles .-\dams of Wethersfield. which is on the Middletown turnpike about a mile below the horse car terminus, was entered about noon Sunday when Mrs. Welles .\dams, its only occupant, was not at home, and every room ransacked. Little of value, however was taken. The thief made his entrance by opening the hatchway and breaking in the cellar door. Then the door to the upper part of the house was broken through. The thief took a broken shovel from the cellar and left it in the parlor. It would have been a murderous weapon if he had found anyone to use it on. A m\n. suppjsed to be the thief, was seen by neighijors. inquiring the way to Rocky Hill. He was thick set and very hardened in appearance.
