Dust of Heroes, lying here.
Still onto jour country dear,
Flowers we bring, each grave to itrew,
Respectful tribute to renew.
Oar country by disunion torn.
And by disunion overborne,
And drenched with blood, costly wave.
Your precious lives were lost to save.
And buried "neath your country's soil,
At rest from carnage, blood, and toil ;
Your graves a sacred trust we bold,
Moreipriceleas in our eyes than gold.
The dreauful charge is heard no more,
Nor clash of Heel, and cannon's roar,
Nor groans of wounded, dying men,
For peace has blessed our land again.
But ah ; the cost, no tongue can tell,
The oft re peated funeral knell
To happy Heroes has mourning sent,
And bleeding hearts with grief are bent.
How many gallant forms are laid.
Afar from borne 'mid Southern shade.
And none to east a flower there.
To shed a tear, or breathe a prayer.
But God has numbered every spot,
Made sacred by a fatal shot,
And every righteous one to save,
His only son He freely gave.
Phihfsburg, May 30f4, 1S71.
THE EMPEEOE'S NEW SUIT.
Many years ago there lived an Emperor,
who cared so very much about having new
clothea that he .;pent all his money merely
for the sake of being very smartly dressed.
He did not care much about his troops ; he
did not care, either, about going to the play
er driving out unless it were that he might
s-how his new clothes. He had a new suit
for every hour in the day ; and, as one usu
ally says of a King or Emperor, he held a
privy council, so of hiiu it was said. His
Majesty sat in council with his tailors.
In the large town where he resided, peo
p!e led a merry life. Day after day fresh
visitors arrived at court ; one day, too, a
couple of swindlers, who called themselves
first rate weavers, made their appearance.
They pretended that they were able to weave
the richest stuffs, in which not ouly tho col
ors and patterns were extremely beautiful,
but that the clothes made of such stuffs
possessed the wonderful property of re
maining visible to him who was unfit for the
office he held, or who was extremely silly.
"Yi'hat capital clothes they must be!"
thought the Emperor. "If I had but such
a suit, I could dtre.tly fiud out what people
in my empire were not equal to thir offieo ;
and beside, I should be able to distinguish
the clever from the stupid. By jove, I must
have some of this stuff made directly for
me!" And so he ordered large sums of
niney to be given to the two swiiiil!ci's,that
they might be set to work immediately.
The men erected two looms, and did as it
they worked very diligently; but in reality
they bad got nothing on the loom. They
boldly demanded the finest silk and gold
thread, put it all in their own pockets, and
worked away at the empty loom until quite
late at night.
"I should like to know hnw the weavers
are getting on with mv stuff," said the Em
peror, one day, to himself; but he was lath
er embarrassed when he remembered that a
silly fellow, or one unfitted for his office,
would not be able to see the stuff. 'Tis
true he thought, as regarded himself, there
was no risk whatever; but yet he preferred
sending some one else to bring him intelli
gence of the two weavers, ami how they
were getting on, before he went himself.
Everyb.fcly in the whole town had heard of
the wonderful proprrty, and all were curious
to know how clever or foolish their neigh
bors might be found to be.
"1 will send my worthy old minir-ter,"
a:d the Emperor, at last, after much eon
s:Jcration ; he will be able to say how the !
stuff looks better than anybody ; for he is a
man of understanding, and no one can be
found uiore fitted than he."
So the worthy old minister went to the
room where the two swindlers were working
away with all their might and main. "Lord
help me !" thought the old man, opening
his eyes as wide as possible , "why I can't
sie the least thing whatever on the loom."
But be took care not to give voice to his
The swindlers begged him most politely
to have the goodness to approach nearer to
the looms; and then pointing to the empty
frame, asked him if the colors were not of
great teau'y, .And the poor old minister
Vwkeil, and looked, and could see nothing
whatever ; tor, indeed, there was nothing at
all there.. "Biers Uie !" thought he tD him
self, "am I, then, really? simpleton? Well,
I never thought so, and nobody dare know
it. I not fit for my office ! No, nothing on
earth shall make me say that I have not
seen the stoff."
"Well, sir," said one of the swindlers,
stii working busily, "you don't say if the
stuff pleases you or not."
"Oh, beautiful ! the work is admirable !"
said the minister, loooking at the beam
through his spectacles. "This pattern and
these colors well, well ; I shall not fail to
tell the Emperor that both are most beau
tiful." ' Well, wc shall be delighted if you do
so," said the swindlers, and named the dif
ferent colors and patterns which were in the
nuff. The minister listened attentively to
what they said, in order that he might be
ahie to repeat all to the Emperor.
The swindlers then a..lcd for wore mon
ey, and silk, and gold thread, which they
"anted to finish the piece they had begun.
But they put, as before, all that was given
to them into their own pockets, and still
continued to work, with apparent diligence
at the empty loom.
Some time after,the Emperor sent anoth
er officer to see how the work was progress
ing, and if the piece of broadcloth would
soon be finished. But he fared like the
other. He stared at the loom from every
side ; but as there was nothing there, of
course he could see onlyNhe empty loom.
"Does the stuff not please you as much
as it did the minister?" asked the men,
making the same gestures as before, and
talking of splendid colors aud of colors
which did not exist.
"Stupid I certainly am not, "thought
the new commissioner; "then it must be
that I am not fitted for the lucrative office.
That were a good joke ! However, no one
dare even suspeet such a thing." And so
he began praising the stuff that he could
not see, and told the two swindlers how
pleased he was to behold such beautiful col
ors and such charming patterns. "Indeed,
you Majesty," said he to the Emperor, on
his return, "the stuff which the weaver's
are making is extraordinary fine."
The magnificent brocade that the Empe
ror was having woven at his own expense
was the talk of the whole town.
The Emperor wished to see the costly
stuff while it was on the loom ; so, accom
panied by a chosen train of courtiers, among
whom were the two trusty men who had so
admired the work, off he went to the two
cunning cheats. As soon as thev heard of
the Emperor's approach, they boy an work
ing with all dilligence, although as yet there
was not a single thread on the loom.
"Is it not magnificent?" said the two
officers of the crown. "Will your Majesty
only look? What a charming pattern'
What beautiful colors!" said they, point
ing to the empty frames, for they thought
the others could really see the stuff.
"What's the meaning of this?'' said the
Emperor to himself. "I see nothing ! This
is a terrible matter ! Am I a simpleton, or
am not fit to be Emperor? Why, that were
the worst that could happen to me. Oh,
charming; the stuff is really charming,"
said he then; "I approve it highly!" And
he smiled graciously, and examined the
empty looms minutely ; ior he would not
for all the world say that he could not see
what his two ofiicors had so :ach praised.
The whole suit strained their eyes to dis
cover something in the looms, but they
could see as little as the others. At the
frame time, in order to please their master
the Emperor, they all cried out, "Oh, how
beautiful!" and counseled His Majesty to
have new robes made out of this magnifi
cent stuff, for the grand procession whicli
was about to take place. "Excellent!
Charming!" was echoed from mouth to
mouth ; and all were extremely pleased.
The Emperor was as satisfied as his cour
tiers, and conferred on each 6f the cheats
an order which they wer? to wear in their
buttonhole, and gave them the title of
"Knights of the most honorable order of
The night preceding the day on which
the procession was to take place the two
men stayed up all night, and had sixteen
candles burning, so that everybody might
see how they worked to get the Emperor's
new dress done in proper time. They pre
tended to unroll the stuff from the loom;
they, cut in the air with their scissors, and
sewed wi'.h needles that had no thread.
"Now, then," said they, "the Emperor's
new suit is ready at la;t."
The Emperor then made his appearance
in the chamber of his two Knights of the
Loom, accompanied by his chamberlains of
the highest rank ; and the two cheats held
up their arms, as though they had some
thing in their ham.Js and said: "Her are
your Majesty's knee-breeches, here is the
coat, nnd here the mantle. The whole suit
is as light as a cobweb ; and when dressed
one would almost fancy he had nothing on :
but that is just the beauty of this stuff!"
"Of course!" said all the courtiers, al
though not a single one of them could see
anything of the clothea.
"Will your Imperial Maj sty most gra
ciously be pleased to undress? We will then
try on the new things before the glass."
The Emperor allowed himself to be un
dressed, and then the two cheats did exact
ly as if each one helped him on with an ar
ticle of dress.
"How well the dress becomes your Ma
jesty ! and how well it fits! What a pattern!
What colors ! This is indceed, a dress wor
thy of a king !"
"The canopy which is to be home above
your Majesty in the procession is in readi
ness withoul, announced the Chief Master
of the ceremonies.
"lam quite ready." replied the Empe
ror. "Do my new things sit well ?" asked
he, turning round once more before the
looking-glass, iu order that it might appear
that he examined the dress very miuutely.
The pages who wete to carry the Empe
ror's train felt about on the ground as if
to lift up the end of the mantle, and did ex
actly as if they were carrying something,
for they also did not wish to betray simplic
ity or unfitness for their post.
And so the Emperor walked on under the
high catiopy, through the street of the me
tropolis and all the people in tho streets
and at the windows cried out, "Oh, how
beautiful the Emperor's new dress is! what
a splendid train ! and the mantle, how well
In short, there was nobody but wished to
cheat himself into the belief that he saw
the highly valued clothes, for otherwise he
would have to acknowledge himself either a
simpleton or an awkward fellow. As yet
none of the Emperor's new dresses had met j
with such approval as the suit made by the

said a litt! child. "Ah, hear the voice of
innocence 1" said the father, and one person
whispered to another what the child had
"But he really has nothing on !" exclaim
ed at last all the people. This vexed the
Emperor, for he felt they were right, but
he thought "However, I must bear the
thing to the end 1" Aud the pages placed
themselves further from h:m, as if they
were carrying a train which did not even
Don't be too Sensitive. There are
some people yes, many ' people always
looking out for slights. They cannot carry
on the daily intercourse of the family with
out soaie offence is designed. They are as
touchy as hair triggers. If they meet an
acquaintance iu the street who happens to
be pre occupied with business, they attrib
ute his abstraction in some mode personal
to themselves, and take umbrage according
ly. They lay on others the fault of their
irritability. A fit of indigestion makes
them see impertinence . in everybody they
come in contact with. Innocent persons,
who never dreamed of giving offence, arc
astonished to find some unfortunate word,
or some momentary taciturnity, mistaken
for an insult. To say the least the habit i
unfortunate. It is far wiser to take the
more charitable view of our fellow beings,
and not suppose a slight is intended unless
the neglect is open and direct. After all,
too, lile takes its us3 in a great degree from
the color of our own mind. If we are frank
and generous, the world treats us kindly. If,
on the contrary, wc are suspicious, men
learn to be cold and cautious to us. Let a
person get the reputation of being touchy,
and everybody is under more or less re
straiot ; and iu this way the chances of an
imaginary offence are vastly increased.

is bright and beautiful, and cheering to the
benighted traveler. But life's evening star
is in a good hope of Heaven. Its beauty
and brilliancy are reflected from the $un
of righteousness, whose bright rays light
up the evening of life, and throw their ra
diance quite across the darkness of the grave
into Immatiucrs land. It litis illuminated
the footsteps of many a traveler into eter

worlds cannot purchase it ; yet it is offered

aud thankfully receive it.
Some forty years ago, when a man's re
spectability depended much on his taking a
newspaper, a certain shrewd old fellow was
one morning enjoyiug the luxury of peru
sing his paper (although he labored under
the disadvantage of not knowing a single
letter of the alphabet), when a more know
ing neighbor of his happening in perhaps
to borrow his paper olserved to him that
he had his paper wrong end up. The old
gentleman, drawing himself up iu all the
pomposity of affronted dignity, exclaimed
"I would have you to know, sir, that if I
take a paper and pay for it, I have a right
to read it which end up I please."

Ellen Vandecker and her sister Bessie
were waiting for dinner in a magnificent
dwelling in one of the most aristocratic
streets in New York.
Ellen, the elder, was rocking herself in
front of the glass between the windows, and
Bessie was standing tip-toe beft re the mir
ror cn the mantle-piece, "fixing" herself as
ladies call it that is rearranging her dress,
generally without rhyme or reason taking
off the bow at her throat, shaking out her
false curls, puffing up her pauier, and belt
ing in her waist.
These two sisters, the only children of a
rich widowed stock broker, were in every
particular of dress and thought, girls of the
They never quarreled exactly, but were
always at variance in their opinions, and
permitted themselves to use that unpleasant
frankness that is the bane of too much in
timacy, and the downright contradiction
which prevails with relutives who are not
obliged to be polite in the home circle. -
"I wish," said Ellen, "that tkat Kitten
wouldn't come here any more."
"I wish," replied Bessie, "that you would
step calling him Kitten. I don't see any
fun in it. He's not a bit like a kitten."
"lie is then," laughed Ellen ; "his hair is
light, what I call kitten gray, or drab ; his
eyes are gray, so is his complexion ; he
wears a gray hat, gray pants, gray gloves ;
his sparce moustache sticks out just like a
cat's, and he speaks in a purring voice ;
externally he is very like a kitten, but mor
ally I thiuk he is more of the mouse order,
without a grain of spirit. Whetiever I see
him siding up to you, without the courage
to pay you open attention, I think of such

"I hope,", retorted her sister, "that when

And Ellen laughed, and rocked back, far
enough back to reflect the heels of her tiny
boots ; but Bessie sighed and said thought
"I suppose it iconld go pretty hard with

and so they never teach them anything that

they are thrown out in the world to shift
for themselves, they do it badly enough, the
men often by their wits, and the women by
worse. Now there's poor Donald Farring

"Bother your science ! There's pa ; let's
go down to dinner."
It w-ts true, he told them during dinner,
that Farriniiton & Brother had suspended
payment; their liabilities were large, and
the merchant princes of yesterday were the
beggars of to day.
How did the meek and purring "Kitten"
bear the blow ?
An only son, he had been reared in luxu
ry, and iu the belief that a large fortune
would be his ; that, therefore labor mental
or physical would never be necessary.
He knew positively nothing of practical
use, although he could swim like a duck,
sing like the tenor of an opera, and dance
like a Polish prince. 'lie could drive a pair
of fast horses without splitting his tight vi
olet kid gloves, was a splendid amateur

as he Dad formerly spent in neckties and
gloves; so he resigned his situation in three
months, and stood alone in the world, with
out a penny or the means of earning one.
and with all his luxurious habits to be over
come. But there remained to him the good
pifts of his pride and youthful manhood.
The first prompted him to withdraw imme
diately from his "set" thereby avoiding the
humiliation of "cuts;" the second enabled
him to face the worst without a tuurmer.
He wrote to Bessie Vandecker, releasing
her from her engagement, giving his rever
ses as his reason. For awhile he hoped she
would cling to him, but when a brief note
came, expressing polite but cold regrets for
his altered fortune, he made up his tuind
that he must resign love as well as frieuds
aud position; then in the ianguagc of the
bold outlaw, Rob Koy, "he pulled his bon-
net o'er his brow, took to the woods and
bills, and became a broken man."
The firm of Farrington & Brother '.soon
passed out of remembrance of all but suf
ferers by it. Kitten's father slunk away to
the poverty-stricken retreats of broken-down
gentlemen ; lor his had been no ficticious
failure, leaving the bankrupts rich. Thus
Kitten faded so completely out of Bessie's?
"set" that she could learn nothing of him
or his whereabouts. On the receipt of his
letter she felt that she loved. him, and 'old
her father so. She was young, aud stood
in awe of her father, who forbade her to j
hold out any encouragement to young Far
rington, giving these reasons : that she. by
virtue of her bringing up, was unfitted to
be the wife of a poor man ; that he, her
father would "never support a son-iulawj
that every man should take care of his own
wife, no. matter what the circumstauces of
her parents might be. If the young fellow
really loved her, he would pluck up a spirit
which lie didn't seem to have by the-way
strike a vein of gold, or Kidd's treasures,
and come back and claim her in good time.
Then it would be well enought to taik of
accepting him, always supposing that she
kept of the same mind, which, in so young
a girl, was hardly to be expected. And so
on in the same strain.
Bessie did not die of disappointed love
it is not customary with the girls of the pe
riod. Still she felt that in her "heart of
hearts" (whv should Hamlet only have a
plurality of them ?) she loved poor Kitten,
as her sister had mockingly named mat in a
She loved him with redoubled tenderness
since he had uttered that tounching, tragic
word, "good bye;" for
'How oft. if at the court of Love,
Conct nlment be the fashion.
When how d'dy-do has failed to move,
Good-bye reveals the passiou !"'
The sifters passed four years in gayety
and fashion, skimming from one watering
place to another, aud then Eiien married.
Mr. Vaudecken came home one evcuintr,
saying that he was going out west on busi
ness ; that if Bessie could be ready at seven
o'clock the next morning she might go with
A latge Saratoga trunk stood in the pas
sage at six. They traveled in satery till the

buttoned her boots, "that I shall have to

Tired out, she soon fell into an uneasy
slumber. She was suddenly awakened by a
terrible crash, as if two trains had rushed
together, followed by shouts, cries, groans,
and confusion. She was instantly thrown
forward, it seemed to her, out of the car;
then she lost consciousness. When she part
recovered her senses she heard the same
agonising moaning and cries, and thought
she had been killa 1 and rent to perdition ;
for above her head there glared a great,
blinding red light ; she seemed to be lying
on a hard, iron .hayrack, then a demoniac
fnr-! Lont. over her, and two brawny bare
arms grasped her and bore her swlfty away.
Was it the arch Send himself bearing her
dowu. down to still more punishment?
Two trains had collided one dashing into
and shutting up in the other like a telescope.
By some miracle Bessie was flung uninjured
on the cowcatcher of the engine which
burst in the end of her sleeping car. Just
as she fell, the engineer managed to jump
out, seize her, and drag her off the perilous
place. He carried her to the nearest hotel,
where soon the dead and wounded were
brought in heart rending numbers. Among
the former was Mr. Vaudecken.
In the agony of her grief word was bro't
that the engineer wished to see her.
"Let him come in, "-said she tearfully.
"Though uow my father is gone, I cannot
thank the man for saving my life."
The engineer was a tall muscular man,
with a heavy beard. This time his lace was
not begrimed with coal dust. B.'Ssie saw at
otice that he was not the arch-fiend, as she
thought on the cow catcher; but there was
something familliar about his features. Still
she felt sure she had never uict him before
is she had no acquaintances among men who
worked like that for a living.
"Don't you know uie, Bessie?" he said,
falteringly, but with no touch of shame.
She uttered a cry, and straightway fell
sobbing into the outspread arms of the dir
ty engineer, who wore a red flannel shirt,
shabby, coarse pants turned up at the ankle,
clodhoppiug boots, and worked li!:e that for
It s tvitten : it s ivitten : u s my dear
old dar'liiijj Kitten!"
And so it teas Kitten : though no wonder
she did not recognize him til! he ioke. The
slight, smooth faced youth of twenty had
changed into a horded man of powerful
build. The dainty hands which once wore
ladies sized kid gloves were now strong
enough to drive an engine and guide a fly
ing train ; aud the Kitten of fast horses and
swell clubs was now content, even proud, he
said, to earn his living by the sweat of his
brow. It was an humble calling, but "a
man's a man for a' that."
To be true to nature, almost every story
ends with a marriaire, and so does this ; for
in eighteen months after her father's de
ccae, Bessie, the heiress, but true hearted
little girl of the pcrioct, became the wife of
the stalwart engineer, the once meek, pur
ring little Kitten.
Falsf.uood. The first sin committed in
this world was a lie, aud the liar was the
devil. The Greeks, who allowed their dei
ties almost every weakness and every vice,
held that they forfeited heaven by falsehood,
and that an oath was as sacred to Jupiter,
the cloud-compeller, as the utcaucst denizen
of earth. A regard to truths is the last of
all the virtues and supposed high cultiva
tion. The savage is full of falsehood, both
in word and deed ; the ignorant man will
deceive when he can, but learos to keep his
word when he has given it ; an important
part of truth but not the whole.
False friends are worse than open enemies.
