"Henrietta's Inheritance," by Lela Horn Richards (The Page Company, Boston), continues through another volume the life story of a girl heroine already very popular with a large circle of young readers; subjecting her to severe trials but bringing her in the end a college degree, a fortune and a lover; of all of which she will make good use, judging from the portrait of
her which Thelma Gooch has painted for the book cover.
The Page Company "Little Cousin" series now has reached a total of more than 50 titles, showing the popularity of this successful attempt to impart useful knowledge in pleasant form. Emily Goddard Taylor is the author of the latest issue which tells of the interesting island of Barbadoes and its Caribean neighbors under the title, "Our Little West Indian Cousin."

Silent and bare it stood when autumn days had past,
Gladsome and gay there came the gentle winds of May;
Onward, ever onward roll the seasons and years.
CHARLES R. WALKER. M. D.
Charles Rumford Walker, M. D., died in Concord, April 22. He was born in that city, February 13, 1852, the son of Joseph B. and Elizabeth L. (Upham) Walker and a descendant in the fourth generation from Rev. Timothy Walker, first minister of Concord. He attended the public schools of Concord; then graduated from Phillips Exeter Academy in 1870, from Yale in 1874 and from the Harvard Medical school in 1878.

don, Vienna and Strassburg, he began the practice of his profession in Concord in 1881 and so continued until his death, not only winning high honors as a physician and surgeon, but also doing an amount of good as a doctor, citizen and friend which is beyond estimate, because so much of it is known only to the persons benefited.
He was a member of the New Hampshire Medical society, of which he was president in 1899; of the American Medical association; of the staffs of the Margaret Pillsbury and New Hampshire Memorial hospitals; and for 16 years was physician to St. Paul's school. During the war with Germany he served on the selective service board for his district.
Outside of his practice, Dr. Walker was best known as the active member of the board of trustees of the Timothy and Abigail B. Walker Lecture Fund, in which capacity he added greatly to the opportunities of the people of Concord for culture and entertainment. A Republican in politics, he could spare but little time from his profession for public service, but was a member of the board of aldermen in 1892 and of the state legislature in 1895 and had served on the Concord water board. At the time of his death he was president of the New Hampshire Savings Bank and trustee of the Rolfe and Rumford Asylum. At one time he was a surgeon in the New Hampshire National Guard. His clubs were the Wonolancet and Snowshoe of Concord.
June 18, 1888, Doctor Walker married in Boston, Frances Sheafe, by whom he is survived, with their two sons, Rev. Sheafe Walker and Lieut. Charles R. Walker, both graduates of Phillips Exeter and Yale and now of New York City.
JOSEPH W. LUND
Joseph Wheelock Lund, lawyer and sportsman, but best known, perhaps, for his activity as an alumnus of Harvard, died in Cambridge, Mass., May 5. He was born in Concord, March 14, 1867, the son of the late Charles Carroll and Lydia (French) Lund, and fitted at Phillips Andover academy for Harvard, where he graduated in 1890, being permanent secretary of the class. He graduated from the law school of the university in 1893 and had practised his profession in Boston since that date. He was an ardent rowing enthusiast, a trustee of the Weld Boat club at Harvard, and also was devoted to hunting and fishing. He was one of the chief workers in the campaign which resulted in erecting the handsome house of the Harvard Club of Boston and was chairman of the club's first house committee. He also was very active in the endowment drive of the university and in general was unceasing in his labors for Harvard. Mr. Lund never married. He is survived by a brother, Fred B. Lund, M. D., of Boston.
