What' shall we say ?

OUR readers will have been prepared by her own pen for the tidings that our beloved sister has been called home.

Ours is a great loss. Hers is an eternal gain. We may take up her own sweet words, written when Mrs. Baring died, and say, 'We must try and not grudge her the rest and the glory and the brightness of the land of no partings.' The Church of England Zenana Missionary Society owes her much ; and yet, by our sister's own desire, more than once repeated, our tongue is tied, our pen is stayed. She expressly asked that there might be no record of any work of hers. Her record is on high! Will our readers earnestly wait on the Lord, not only in reverent thanksgiving for another Christian warrior safe across the flood,' but in carnest prayer that the Lord Himself will fill her place, and send to India's Women an Editor

VOL. IV.

E

ality, culture, courage, faith, perseverance, brightness, zeal, and love ?

We close this brief notice with an extract from a letter addressed to our departed sister by an old missionary not many weeks before her Home-call :

'I judge that you are lying on the very brink of the endless path-the week of toil nearly over-the glad morning about to dawn on you. Lie there in quiet till the Master comes for you ; though even for you there may be no dying, for, near as is the borderland to you, He may be here before you tread it. However that may be, all is well. He will be yours till death, in dying, beyond the valley, for ever. I bless His name that you have done so much for His cause, that so many in India will know you in the resurrection morning, and that He gives me hope that I too may be in the great rejoicing hosts who shall be with Him where He is. It may be we now cease from all correspondence on earth. Our next words may be with each other on the other side.'

In Memoriam.
PASSED from the region of Earth's shadowy night,
Beyond the boundary of sin and pain,
From all which could oppress, which could enchain,
Thy happy spirit home has winged its flight,
Has reached the blissful shore of endless light,
In thy loved Master's presence to remain,
And share His triumph when He comes to reign
As King of kings in His own princely right.
Shall we not hear the echo ringing long-
The echo of thy life's most earnest song ?-
‘My Christian sisters, live, and work, and pray
For India's best blessing while you may,
Oh! grow not weary, soon will life be o’er,
And time and privilege be ours no more.'
