IN MEMOBIAM. LATTER.-In loving memory of our dear father, Henry Adam Lauer, -who died at Wallsend, New South Wales, October 15, 1904, aged 63 years. For many a year our family chain "was firmly linked together. But, oh, that chain is broken now, one link has gone forever; Silently the shades of evening gather round our lonely door. Silently they bring before us a loved one we shall see no more. How such holy memories clatter like the stars when storms are past, Pointing up to that far heaven where we hope to meet at last; Fond was the father we loved and lost-patient, forgiving and tender. But in the days we thought of him most, death came and rent us asunder. Thou art happy now, dear father, but a great blank thou hast left, In onr home thy presence lighted, sadly now, indeed, bereft; And our much-loved widowed mother, God enable her to bear This great sorrow which her children cannot heal, though deeply eh are. -Inserted by his loving daughter and son in-law. Dora and S. H. Butler...
