“A THING OF BEAUTY IS A JOY FOREVER”
THE ISENBERG-COOKE-RICE MEMORIAL
NOT with the purpose oft vain–glorious shows,
But to express the rooted faith that grows
Like that small mustard see. Beauty and Art,
Like two twin souls nor care nor fret can part,
Here meet in chaste embrace; in sweet combine
Their tender tendrils clasp and strong entwine
The wisdom of the ages long to teach,
The all-prevailing truth, –the one great speech–
To lift our eyes, our hearts, our minds above,
To learn, to feel to know that—‘GOD IS LOVE.’

ARTIST STEFAN SINDING
STEFAN Sinding, the celebrated sculptor of this beautiful monument, is Norwegian by birth, one of three brothers, each having attained a name for himself, one an artist and another a musical composer. Sinding married an actress of high repute, a favorite at the Court of Copenhagen, who, during the early years of their married life, followed her profession in order to assist her husband until his name was made, he, as in the case with so many of real genius, having to work strenuously to acquire that perfection in art which placed him t0-day at the top of his profession. Mr. Sinding and his wife have one son, a civil engineer.
