"Died Poor."--As if anybody could die rich, and in that act of dying did not lose the grasp upon title deed and bond and go away a pauper, out of time. No gold, no jewels, no lands or tenements. And yet men have been buried by charity's hand who did die rich — died worth a thousand thoughts of beauty, a thousand pleasant memories, and a thousand hopes of glory.
