[untitled] [excerpt]

Our last meeting was somewhat marred by the terrible calamity which has overtaken our country by the assassination of our President, William McKinley. Suitable resolutions were adopted to be spread on the minutes of each Division represented and a copy sent to Mrs. McKinley. Our hearts go out in sympathy to the bereaved widow. How she must miss him whose first and last thought was for her. Would that all would emulate the example set in their home life and be all in all to one another, as life is short at the best, and we know not at what hour we may be called. Let us so live that when the golden gates of eternity shall be opened unto us we will hear the welcome mandate “Well done, thou good and faithful servant, enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.”
