face; and when I awake I am still with
Thee.
"Thou hast delivered mine eye from
tears, and my feet from faltering.
"Be of good courage, all ye that hope
In the Lord, and he shall strengthen
your heart. Only for God wait thou
in silence, oh my soul."
The strong voice paused, and after a
momentary silence came that of Rev-
erend Herbert A. Jump:
"The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall
not want. He maketh me to lie down
In green pastures. He leadeth me be-
side the still waters. Ile restoreth
my soul.
"He leadeth me in the paths of
righteousness for His Name's sake.
"Yea; though I walk through the
valley of the shadow of death I shall
h:: r no evil: for Thou art wih me.
'y 'rod and Thy staff they comfort
urely goodness and mercy shall
follow me all the days of my life; and
I will dwell in the House of the Lord,
forever."
He paused, and again Reverend
Douglas' voice took up the service:
"Now is Christ risen from the dead,
and become the first fruits of them
that slept..
"He must reign until He hath put all
enemies under his feet; and the last
enemy that shall be destroyed is
Death.
"But some will say: How are the
dead restored, and with what body
do they come?
"That which thou sewest is not
quickened except it die. Thou sewest
not the body that shall be.
"So also is the restoration of the
dead.
"It is sown in weakness; it is re-
stored in power. It is sown a natural
body; it is restored a spiritual body.
"And as we have born the image of
the earthly, we shall also bear the
image of the heavenly.
"Now this I say, bretheren, that
fResb rd blood cannot inherit the
r.Ij gu of God. This mortal must
in immortality.
"And when this mortal shall have
put on immortality, there shall be
brought to pass the saying that is
written: Death is swallowed up in vic-
cry.

S "Oh may I join the choir invisible
Of those immortal dead who live
again
In minds made better by their pre-1
sence; live
In pulses stirred to generosity: in
scorn1
Of miserable aims that end with1

In thoughts sublime that pierce
the night-like stars;
And with their mild persistence
urge mens' search to
Vaster issues.
This is the life to , coie, which
martyred men have made
more glorious
For us who strive to follow.' ]
"Even grief stands aside for rever-
ence as we contemplate the radiant
life of a man who has: earned immor-
tality in two worlds.
"There have been influences gener-
ated by this gracious spirit which will
outlast any memorial of granite or
of bronze.
"Here was a personality that exer-
cised a strange catalysis upon mens'
hearts. He touched them with his
hope and courage, and they were
never quite the same again. 'le fed
the high tradition of the world and
left his spirit safe in other breasts.'
"When he uttered them there was
a peculiar kinetic value to the words
'All things work together for good
to them that love the Lord.'
"Men are saying of him today that
his life was brief but this life is not
to be estimated by years. Civilization

views certain masterful careers not
in terms of days, but deeds.
"Neither is there on this earth a
tomb .that can house such a spiritual
energy.
"It would not be the wish of his
heroic heart that we should view this
providential event otherwise than with
courage.
"When this day's sad task is done
and the evidences of his mortality,
are put away, we shall recapture ourI
arrested faith and live with valor as
becomes his friends..
" "At this moment we ask to be for-
given our weakness and our grief for

"Our Father God:
"Lord of the vast spaces, and the,
far-reaching centuries; Lord of all
the nights and depths, and silences,

Alex J. Groesbeck
The. Governor arrived in Ann Arbor
at 1 b'clock yesterday, going directly
to a luncheon at the Union, at the
conclusion of which he and his party
ttondad tho funeral of President
Marion L. Burton. He, with Ideut-
. George Welsh and members of
the Board of Regents, acted as hon-
orary pall-bearers.
So, if I stoop
Into a dark, tremendous sea of
cloud,
It is but for a time. I press
God's lamp
Close to my breast; its splend-
or soon or late
Will pierce the gloom. I shall
emerge one day.'
"Precious .in the sight of the Lord
is the death of His saints.
"Let us give Him praise for honor
ed men: for the Lord hath wrought
great glory by them, through His.
power, from the beginning.
"Such as did bear rule in their king-
doms; men renowned for their pow-
er; giving councel by their understan
er; giving counsel by their under-
standing, leaders of the people by
their judgments; wise and eloquent
in their instructions.
"All these were honored in their
generations, and were the glory of
their kinds.
"Their bodies are buried in peace;
but their names liveth forevermore.
"Wherefore, seeing we also are
compassed about with so great a
cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside
every weight, and the sin which doth
so easily beset us; and let us run with
patience the race that is set before
us; looking unto Jesus, the Author
and Finisher of our faith, who, for
the joy that was set before him en-
dured the Cross, despising its shame,
ind is seated at the throne of God.
