An Epitaph A Day - October 29

Keeps Death's Spectre Away



ON ORONO.

At Oldtown, Maine, may be seen this epitaph on
Orono, chief of the Penobscots, who died in 1801,
aged 113 years:

Safe lodged within his blanket, here below,
Lie the last relics of old Orono;
Worn down with toil and care, he in a trice
Exchanged his wigwam for a paradise.
