That you so soon should fade,
The beauty bright
That charms our sight:
On the earth's told-breast be laid.

Your colors rare

Than all the flowers

Or all the buds of spring
Youi haughty pride
Could not abide
Tbe summer's•changeless green,
But you must welt. •
ThOse garments rare
Like mantles of a queen.
You rob the skies
Of sunset's dyes
And morning's crimson flush
And then by' day
Your trophies gay
Bedeck each tree and bush.
The wrathful sky
Will.lay your beauty low,
And o'er your forms
Sweep wide the drifting snow
'Then praise be still
To artist - skill,
That spite of wind or storms,
Gives to our sight
In colors bright
The beauty of your forms.
LOVE STORY OF THE WAR.
We were sitting in our room at the
Glades Hotel,. in- Oakland, MI.,
a charming lady who had dropped in on
a visit, one of our windows looked into
that of another room so placed by the pro
jection of the main building, that half of
its interior could be seen. We were fook
ing at and admiring a little chubby, blue
eyed two year old, white as snow,who was
pulling a boquet to pieces and tossing out
the fragmeuts,or clapping her little hands
with delight as a train went thundering
"These rooms," said our fair visitor,
"have some very tender associations for
"Why so ?" we 'asked
"Well," she answered, "during the war
. part of the hotel was seized
by the Government as a hosPital, and we
were crowded. into a few rooms.' My sis
ter and I had this. In that room where
that little beauty is were. two Union offi
cers, one sick of ft ver and the other of a
wound. 'lt was hard to tell whether they
were slowly dying or slowly getting well.
I never saw a ich ghastly skeletons to be
alive. We were "sect.h, ' and - not modest
about it either, but still our hearts ached
fur the poor young men, so ill, pe”haps
dying, far from friends and relatives."
"It bothers one to know how this should
be a hospital," we said, "it is so far re
moved from active operations."
"It was thought," she answered, "that
the mountain air of the glades would' be
more favorable to recovery:then elsewhere
so this was .made .a hospital. One day
one of these officers dragged himself to the
window, and under the impulse of the
moment my sister asked if we could do
anything fOr them, and he answered, gasp
ing for breath, that a little chicken soup
would save .their lives. Chickens were
rare in those days—an army is bard on
ponitry. The - men. will work all night,
after marching during the day,lo secure
a few chickens;- so that whilethe hospit
al.nurses and physicians,had an unlimited
silkily of actual luxuries- in the way of
wines, potted meats ata canned vegetables
they were `without anything fresh. We
knew's' fay' chickens were - hid 'in the cel
lar, by a neighbor, and we coaxed oils
out of owner, and after a deal of Vex-:
atious' trouble—for at every turn we were
met by a , fixed bayonet and an . insult
we got the soup ready, and as the guard
in the hall would not permit us to approach
our patients; my sister attempted to hand
the bowl to the officer in the window.- 7 -
Just as.he was feebly reaching for it, and
she stretching herself half out to give it to
him,a barsh,ugly voice below cried aloud,
"Look out there—poison?'
Sli6 nearly dropped herself, soup, and all. •
Drawing back, she hesitated. a second,
And then „she,took a spoon and began-eat
ing the broth: "Oh! bother," -cried the
officer, "don't wast it that way—l am not
afraid," and so she gave him the soup.—
It seemed to revive them, and they con
tinued steadily to, improve as day after'
daywe supplied them with chicken broth,
until the cellar was empty. During this
time we sat - at the whitlows 'talking, 'and
.we sang. to them.—sang "]tip ;Maryland",
and Smith* songs we knew un-.

"One did not, for, poor fellow, he was
killed in the very next battle in which he
engaged. His companion wrote us about
it, and the writer insisted upon opening a
correspondence with my sister; and . soon
his letters grew into love letters,and af
ter a time they were 'engaged. Nearly a
year subsequent td this our patient got
leave of absence, and came to be married.
He put up at a hotel, and, will you be
lieve it, our own brother, who was in the
Confederate service and`kami nothing of
my sister's affair, led a band of guerrillas ,
at night into town and captured his in
tended brother-in-law from his bed. This
not only deferred the marriage, • but de
prived the young West Pointer of his,pro
motion, that had been .promised for, gal
lant services in the field. It was really
aggravnting, for eXchanges had `afinost
ceased,and' it looked an if the loirers would
have to wait until "this eruel war was
over,' before they could be united."
' "You should have appealed to Abraham
Lincoln to give a married, brigadier for
au unmarried lieutenant." 2
"We did better. Procuring passes, we
went through the lines /and appealed to
Jeff Davis. Jeff said, he would put my
brother's prisoner in his sister's keeping.
They have been happity, married these
many years. ' He is a brevet brigadier
general now, and it all came of our nurs
ing the .enemy in 'that room."
Here is the foundation of a drama su
perior to that given by Boucicault in
- The Little Sailor ot_the:Lake..
'We Were leaning over the Creek bridge
at Olcott,says the Lockport Union,watelr
ing Ed:Mania as ho took his evening
fish. ,Martin keeps the littte boat house
on the west side of the creek; where . at
any hour of the day may be found a road
boat creekworthy or lakeworthy. 'As we
stood there;there appeared on the lauding
at the boat house, a' little •fellow, "kuee
high to a grasshopper," who wanted to
know—in a voice worthy of a man—
which boat he should take. As the young- .
ster was 'just about tall enough to see
comfortably over an ordinary table, every
eye in the party was directed with an 'ex
pression of mingled wonderment and A
musement at the speaker.. lie was bur
dened with little more than pantalotnis,
shirt and slouch sailor cap. The question
as to which boat he should take was put
to Mr. Martin, his father, who directed
him to take the little Lena; we believe a
graceful boat, large enough to hold a par
ty of four or five conifistably.
As the little boatman stepped into the
Lena a•series of 'qtiestions were put to his
natural protector, who was playing with
the fishing line. , : ,„
"Why,Aloes,that little fellow go out on
the ereek alone?" "
'"Oh, yes ; h *goes Wherever he pleases.'

"Are you:not afraid to. havb hi& do so?'

The Triumphant Book.
Do not be afraid of the Bible. Its tri
amph is,certain. The owls may boot at
the' rising sun;brit sunshine creeps on 'lA
withstanding: Tribes may perish, priests
altars may - crumble*.into ruin ;
but this blessed book advances at "a pace.
that never. ceases ; and if it ever retreats,
it is to recover its retreat with a greater
glory than its ,advance. This book. in
spired by the Spirit of God climbs steep
hills and crosses broad rivers. It is found
under the sailor's pillow;'in the soldier's
knapsack ; and it soars with a wing that
is not numbed by polar snows or relaxed
under equatorial guns. It:tarries with it
an earnest of its ultimate and - everlasting
victory. And this book tells us what the
,real disease of man is. It lays its fingers
on the very spot, and it tells us the bles
sect truth that there is no chance or acci-'
dent; that all is settled and perfectly ar
ranged ; and that even that ripple of sor
row which sometimes comes to the.s?nei:

there appears to be a very strong,tonden
