' "the" stocking.
By the fire.ide cosily seated,
Willi siectncli8 riding her note,
The lively old Inc.; is knitting
A wonderful pair ef hose.
6ho pities the shivering soldier
Vila is nut in the 1'olting storm,
And busily plies ber needle
'i'o kcip biin hourly and warm.
llercyc itro res.ilin the embers,
But her benrt in rff to tho war,
Fur sli known what rims brave follows
Aro gallantly fighting fur.
llrr 6Dgera a well a ber fancy
Are cheering thotn on their way,
' Who under the good old banner,
Are laving their country to-day.
fc'bo pondors how in lier childhood
liar grandmother usod to tell
The story of barefoot eoldien
Who fought 60 long and well :
And the men of the Involution
Are nearer to her lann us,
Atd that, perhaps, is the reason
Why she is toiling thud.
th cannot shoulder a musket,
XorriJe with Ibe Cavalry crow,
Cut nevertheless abo is ready
To work for tbo boys who do.
And yot in official dispatches
That couia from tbo urtny or fleet,
Hrr feats may hive ncvoranotico
Though ever to mighty the feet!
go j ritlioc, prond ornernf umsclo,
Or purei-proud owner of stocks,
Don't sneer at the labors of women,
Or smile at bor bundle of nock,
llor heart may be turgor and braver
Thnn bin who is tailed of all ;
Ibe work of ber hands as important
As cush that buys powder and ball.
And thus wlile her quiet performance
Is being recorded in rhyme,
The tools in ber tremulous fingers
Are running a race with Tiuio.
Strange thut four needles can form
A perfect triangular bound ,
And equnlly stsange that their antics
Itesult in perfecting ''the round."
And now while beginning "to narrow,"
She thiuki of the Maryland mud.
And wonders if ever the stocking
Will nude to the ankle in blood.
And now sbo is "shaping the hcol,'1
And now she is ready "to bind,"
And le pes, if the soldier is wounded,
It never will be from behind.
And now she is "raising the instep,"
Now "imiTowiiig oil at the toe,"
And prays tliut this end of ths worsted
fltiiv ever ho turned to the fun.
She "ga'.herj'' the last of tho stitches,
As il a new laurel wus won,
And placing the ball in the basket
Announces tbe stocking as "Uouu.''
Ye men xv'io ero lighting our bnttles,
Away from the comforts of life,
Who thoughtfully inu.-u by your camp-fire.''
On sweetheart, or sister, orwil'o,
Jiim think of their elders a little,
And " ray f it the graudmotbers, too,
Who, patiently silting in cornors.
Are knitting the stocking for you.
pROii.uii i.ii v of Marrvinu. A table ins
Mrted in a paper in the Assurance Maj;:i
fine, exhibits results of rather a startling
clmracier. In the first two juinq lenn ul
:i(iJ, '20-25 and 'J5-.'i0, the pn bal.ility
oil widower marrying in a year is nearly
three timps as eat us that of a bachelor.
At 30 il is nearly I'o ir times as great ; and
ilincreaes, until at 00 the chance of a
widower marrying in a year is eleven
limes m great as tint of a bachelor. It is
little curious to remark lioin this table
tow cniilii ir.ed either class becomes in iti
cunditinn of life how liiil likely, nftera
U years, u a bachelor likely to break
through his habits nnd a solitary condi
tion ;ninl, on tho other oand, how readily
in proportion does a husband contract a
Wnnd miniate who hnsbecn nremature

that tho President will not violate the
