law, John C. Bonwell of Viola Center, Iowa and fifteen nieces and nephews The following was. the deceased's favorite poem.

A Little More Cross
A little more cross and a little
less creed,
A little more beauty of brotherly
A little more bearing of things to
be borne,
With faith in the infinite triumph
of morn.
A little less doubt and a little more
Of the simple,- sweet service each
day brings to view;
A little more cross, with its beau
tiful light,
Its lesson of love and its message
of right;
A little less sword and .a little
more rose
To soften the struggle and lighten
the blows;
A little more worship,'a little more
With the balm of its income to
brighten the care;
A little more song and a little less
And a cherry' good-day to the
friends that go by. '
A little more cross and a little more
In the bauty that blooms like a
rose out of dust;
A little more lifting the load of
A little more thought for the life
a brother;
A little more dreaming, a little more
A little more'childhood, and sweet- j
ness thereafter;
A little more cross 'and a little
With love in the lands and a rose
the gate.
