The Hour Glass is an emblem of human life. Behold. how swiftly and rapidly our lives are drawing to a close.

We cannot, without astonishment, behold the little particles wich are contained in this machine, how they pass away almost imperceptibly, and yet, to our surprise, in the short space of an hour they are all exhausted.

Thus wastes man. Today he puts forth the tender leaves of hope, tomorrow blossoms, and bears his blushing honors thick upon him.

The next day comes a frost which nips the shoot, and when he thinks his greatness is still aspiring, he falls, like autumn leaves.

To enrich our Mother Earth.

So may it ever be.

The Sword pointing to a Naked Heart demonstrates that justice will sooner or later overtake us; and,althoug our thoughts, words and actions may be hidden from the eyes of man, yet that all-seeing eye, whom the sun, moon, and stars obey, and under whose watchful care even comets perform their stupendous revolutions, pervades the inmost resesses of the human heart, and will reward us according to our merits.

So may it ever me.
