Register] The funeral was early on Sunday morning last, the weather being most beautiful, and the ceremonies were conducted at the grave. They were opened by Mr. Owen himself. He said: "I think it a commendable custom that, aa to funeral ceremonies, the.wishes of the departed subject should, so far as possible, he carried out, when those wishes are known.. "During Mrs. .Owen's illness she said nothing m regard to her funeral. But some two or three months ago it chanced, as men say—though there is no such a thing as chance—but it happened that my wife and I had a conversation on funerals. She said she would not wish to have any bell tolled on her funeral, especially if there was any sickness near. She thought sick persons sometimes suffered by hearing it, and she did not wish her death to be the occasion of gloom or suffering of any kind. Music, she said, she thoug...

"Oh!" said little Bossy, "I have been praying for it, and it will come." ,He seemed to have no doubt of it. - The next morning the first thing the little fellow did, -when he came down stairs was to go to the ' back door and...
