A -ooilby kiss is a little .thing.
With your hand on the'door to go;
But it takes the venom out of the stins
Of a thoughtless word or a cruel fling
That you made an hour ago.
A kiss of greeting Is sweet and rare.
After tho toil of the day;
But it smooths the furrows out of the care
And lines on the forehead yon once called
In tho years that have flown away.
Tis a little thing to say, "You are kind,
I love yon. my dear,"-each night;
But it sends a thrill through the heart, 1
For lo o Is tender, as love is blind,
As wo climb life's i ugged height.
We starve each other for love's caress,
Wo take, but do not give.
It seems so easy some soul to blesa,
But we dolo love grudgingly, less and less,
Till 'tis bitter and hard to live.
A HUSBAND'S TRIBUTE TO A WIFE.
General K. F. Butler Tells What a Wom
an Did on tho March and in Camp.
Iso higher tribute to woman as a wife
and mother has ever been paid than is ac
corded to Mrs. Benjamin F. Butler by her
husband in his memoirs. Writing of his
career during the civil war, he says:
My wife, with a devotion quite unparal
leled, gave me her support by accompany
ing me, at my earnest wish, in every expe
dition in the war of the rebellion, and
made me a home wherever I was stationed
She joined me at Annapolis and accom
panied me to Fortress Monroe when I was
assigned there in May, 1SGL She went
with me on the expedition to Ship island
for the attack upon New Orleans, wherein
I was exposed to the greatest peril of my
life, and only when my ship was hourly
expected to go to pieces and when I im
portunately appealed to her good sense
that our children must not be bereft of
both parents did she leave me to beek
safety on board a guubo.it.
She suffered gVeat privations and hard
ships on the sand of Ship island while we
were awaiting tm attack on New Orleans,
and was on the lirst vcs.-el containing
troops that went up the river after the sur
render of Forts Jackson and St. Philip.
She went ashore with me and lodged at
tho St. Charles hotel on the night after I
took possession of the city of .Now Orleans.
When in 1863 I was assigned to the com
mand of the Department of Virginia and
North Carolina she accompanied mc again
to Fortress Monroe. In 1SC1 she went with
me to the Celd, aud was present with mo
during most of the campaign of 1S01.
Thus 1 had an advantage over most of
my brother commandfng generals in tho
department and in the field, in having an
adviser, faithful and true, clear headed,
conscientious and conservative, whose con
clusions could always bo trusted. In the
mere military movements, although she
took full note, she never interfered by
suggestion, for in regard to them I relied
upon the opinions of my valued, accom
plished and efficient staff officers.
In other matters all that she agreed to
was right and for the best, and if there is
anything in my administration of affairs
that may be questioned, it is that in which
I followed tho bent of my own opinions.
Returning homo with me, after I retired
to civil nnd political life, Mrs. Butler re
mained the samo good adviser, educating
and guiding her children during their
young lives with such skjll and success
that neither of them ever did an act which
caused me serious sorrow or gave me the
least anxiety on their behalf.
She made my home and family as happy
as we could be. She took her place in so
ciety Avhen at Washington, and maintained
it with such grace, dignity and loveliness
of character tnat no one ever said an un
kind or a disparaging word of her.

A WREATH OF ROSES.
Idly the maiden's fingera weave
A gleaming crown of roses red.
And Hinging soft the while, she lays
The fragrant burden on her head.
For their swift death she does not grieve.
Nor fcorrow o'er such sweetness fled,
As threading sunny woodland ways
She listens for her lover's tread.
Enwrapped in bliss her sonl repeses;
Ah! little she rerks of tho griefs of roses.
Alasl the fairest hopes deceive!
She cannot th earn what power dread,
With hand uplifted, by her stav3.
To pluck her in the roses' stead!
E'en w hile her breast with ln e doth heave
She droops amid the blossoms dead;
And to our dim. affrighted gaze.
Despair, of helpless terror bred,
An awful unknown fate discloses.
To whom a girl's no more than roses.
Zoe D. Underbill in Harper's Bazar.
THE DISMAL SWAMP,
The place had always been "ha'nted," if
one might credit what was said in "the
quarters." Indeed there was scarcely a
slave on the plantation but had a startling
experience to relate of the ghosts that
haunted Graysville, one of the most fa
mous old plantations of Louisiana. Every
slave that ever trod southern soil is afraid
of graveyards, and the Graysville grave
yard wjis indeed a solemn old place, and
awesome enough to those minds super
Btitionsly inclined. It was not more than
a hundred yards from the back doorstep
and in full range of the little windows of
the room that had been the sitting room of
all my grandmothers for unnumbered gen
erations. It was not originally meant to be a grave
yard. One of the first Gray women had lost
a babe, and it was her desire that the child
might be buried somewhere in sight of her
window, where she might have the com
fort of seeing its little grave at all times,
and knowing it w.is not quite alone when
the wind blew at night and the snow fell
But the little grave which held the dead
did not by any means help to heal the
wound in the heart of the living, and be
fore the flowers bloomed again in the old
Louisiana woods another grave was opened
beside the lonely little sleeper, and Grand
mother Gray went to keep her child com
pany under the rustling old liveoaks. Of
coarse grandfather was put to 6leep beside
his wife, and so in time all the Grays were
laid there under those grim old oaks, and
the "family graveyard," so to speak, estab
lished within a stone's throw of the back
But it was not the graveyard which
made one afraid of Graysville. Beyond,
more than a mile, and cut off by one of
those still, treacherous lagoons so common
to Louisiana, stretched for several miles a
low, wet strip of timber land known as the
The place was full of uncanny associa
tionsas the hiding place for runaway
slaves, the hotbed of malaria and all man
ner of ills and aches. At length the crown
ing ill was put upon it when it became the
abode of the Graysville ghost.
True, these stories of tho ghost never,
for a long while at least, got beyond the
quarters; but there they were rehearsed
night after night with startling and blood
It was said that nothing ever came out
of the swamp alive even the cattle, wan
dering within its deadly limits, were either
stung to death by the poisonous reptiles
there, or else broke their necks among the
tangles of bamboo and rattan, crossvine
and swinging mosses of the swamp.
I was always mortally afraid of the
swamp, and no human power could have
persuaded me beyond the separating wa
ters of tho lagoon.
Of the ghosts I had no fear whatever;
but stories of the runaway slaves, the poi
sonous atmosphere and the unfortunate
cattle had filled my mind with a horror of
the place which to this day I have never
been able to shake off.
My first recollection of it was the time
one of the men came running in from the
field, panting with fear and declaring that
something like a big black shadow had
ran out of the swamp and chased him
The "something" proved to bo Crazy
Dick, an old slave who had disappeared
months before and wjls supposed to bedead
somewhere in the impenetrable depths of
the Dismal Swamp. He had indeed been
there all the while, living upon the wild
plums and berries which grew there in
rank profusion. He returned to his hiding
place and died there, his dead body having
been discovered by seeing the buzzards cir
cling about it on the farther bank of the
"Literally torn to pieces by the witches,"
they said in the cabins of the superstitious
blacks, who repudiated the existence of
the briers for the more thrilling idea of
From That time forward the ghost of
Crazy Dick was said to wander about the
swamp, and could be seen almost any
night, "all in white," crossing the lagoon
and tho rice field, and coming on across
the lawn to the graveyard, where he disap
peared "jusQ at daylight," in his own grave
in the far corner of tho lot, "over todes the
great house." The story was told until it
was believed by every negro on the planta
tion; and when at last tho overseer him
self, returning from the quarters after
midnight, where he had been to sit up with
a very sick slave, declared that he had
with his own eyes seen the ghost, there
was something of a panic in and about
I was a girl then of abcut seventeen
years of age, and my terror of the swamp
became so intense that I would stop my
ears and leave the room at the bare men
tion of the place. It preyed upon my
thoughts day and night.
At night my dreams were full of it. I
had wandered among all those mysterious
depths, trampled upon the nest of the cop
perhead and adder, breathed the soft per
fume of the wild magnolia and brushed
aside, as it trailed against my forehead,
the rank red blossoms of the poisonous
oak and the deadly ivy. In my dreams I
had dipped my feet into the still, sleek
waters of the lagoon and followed the path
made by the ghost of Crazy Dick across
the rice field and the family graveyard,
and lost myself in the depths of its dull,
I would wake at sunrise, nervous and
feverish, and as weary us if I had indeed
made the horrible journey. And even then
i would creep under the bed covers and try
to forget the horrors of my dream.
I grew thin and pale and nervous. All
the gold in Ixjuisiana could not tmptme
near the Dismal Swamp, my terror of itin
creased s L nigh; after night, roamed
through its terrible tangles of vine and
brier in my dreams.
One morning the very climax of wonder
was reached when my father, returning
home just before day from a meeting of
the rice planters at a village some fifteen
miles distant, himself encountered the
Graysville ghost returning from its m:d
night ramh.e through the Dismal Swamp.
It was only ball visible in the uncertain
ngbt, but still distinct enough for nun to
distinguish a supple, willowy something
clad in white and moving without noise,
almost without mcuon. ha thought, toward
the dismal shadows of the Graysviile
graveyard. There it disappeared, as usual.

sections wbere I was lond or going for the
wild blossoms and ripe fruit, I could not
understand the restriction, and said so
very freely. She then showed me the boots
I had worn as she supposed the day be
fore in my rambles.
"But I did not go out yesterday!" I ex
claimed, no little astonished at the sad
condition of my rubber walking boots, so
necessary for the low, moist Louisiana
"They were found at your door this
morning," she told me, "where you usual
ly place them to be cleaned."
It was odd, to be sure, and for many
weeks remained to me an enigma. My
mother, I was sure, believed I was telling
her a deliberate falsehood, inasmuch as
the very next morning the boots were
found in the same place and in precisely
the same condition.
At lepgth my mother removed the boots
to her own closet, and locking the door
put the key in her pocket, saying as she
did so: "Now we will see who it is that's
in the habit of wearing your shoes. No
body knows where the key of the closet
door is hid except yourself, Elsa."
I must explain that by this time, owing
to my vehement denial as to having worn
the boots, suspicion had fallen upon Louise,
my mother's housemaid, a quadroon girl
about my own size and age.
That night my dreams were terrible
the boots played no inconsiderable part in
my nervous and excited fancies. First I
imagined that I must have them, and in
order to get them it was necessary to ob
tain the closet key, hidden in the pocket of
my mother's blue chintz gown that always
hung at night upon a chair immediately
behind her bed.
I dreamed that I had seen her forget to
fasten the door leading into her bedroom,
and that I arose, and tiptoeing across the
hall went down the stairs, and, sure
enough, found the door unfastened. I
went in, and groping in the darkness found
the blue chintz, removed the key and with
the utmost ease found and fitted it in
the closet door. I found the boots full as
easily, locked the door, returned the key to
its place and went out as noiselessly as I
I sat down upon the doorstep in the
moonlight, drew the shoes upon my bare
feet and started out as rapidly as I knew
how toward the graveyard, across the rice
field, through the white looking lagoon
and into the horrid shades of the Dismal
Swamp. All night long in my dreams I
followed the wild birds or fled from tho
hiss of the serpents which made their home
in the deadly morass. The plover, startled
from its nest, brushed by me with a
shriek, and once I fancied a long serpent
swung from a swamp willow and planted
its fangs in my cheek. But when I put
out my hand to brush it aside I found that
a branch of trumpet vine had swept
across my face, the rich red blossoms drop
ping the dew from their cups into my lips,
which wera parched and dry. I was not
in the least frightened, but plunged on
deeper and deeper into the vast wilderness.
Once I heard the bloodhounds baying, and
knew they were on tho track of some run
away slave who had fled to the protecting
jungles of the Dismal Swamp.
At last I grew weary and turned home
ward. I crossed the lagoon, lying still and
white in tho gray dawn, and traversed
again the rice field and the lonely path
across the graveyard; then I sat down
upon the doorstep and removed my long
boots, carrying them up to my door, where
I left them for Louise to have cleaned.
Then I crept to bed and remembered noth
ing more until npon, when, I awoke to find
my mother bending over me with heavy,
troubled eyes as I had seen her many a
time when some of us were ilL
I yawned wearily.
"Mother," I said, "I went through the
Dismal Swamp again in my dreams last
Ana tne trraysviue gnost was seen
again last night," she replied hesitatingly,
as if afraid to tell me.
"Who saw it this time?" I asked.
I sat up in biid startled and pale with a
great fear. I brushed my hand across my
temples to make my thoughts clear.
And as I did so I felt a long, deep cut
npon my cheek.
"Mother!" 1 tried to say. "Motherl"
And throwing off the bedcovers I sprang
out upon the floor.
My long nightdress was spattered and
draggled with mire; my knees were torn
and bleeding. Cockle burrs and marsh
mosses were clinging to my hair, but my
feet were white and clean.
Instantly 1 understood it all, and fell
with a shriek into my mother's arms.
1 was the Graysville ghost, and I was tho
somnambulist who had, night after night,
plunged deeper and deeper in the jungles
of tho Dismal Swamp.
They followed my tracks as far as they
dared penetrate into that dreary morass.
How I did it remains a mystery, but cer
