At the residence of his father, in this city, on the 21st inst., of scarlet fever, ROBERT O., son of L. B. F. and Cornelia F. Enos, aged 4 years 9 months and 8 days.
                  Dearest Robert, thou hast left us,
                    We thy loss most deeply feel,
                  But 'tis God who hath bereft us-
                    He can all our sorrows heal.

                  His little chair is empty now,
                    His little clothes laid by-
                  A father's hope, a mother's joy,
                    In death's cold arms doth lie.

                  And when our bleeding hearts lie still,
                    And earth's dark trouble's o'er,
                  Our angel boy, with crown and harp,
                    Will lead us to the Lord.
