BT JAMES 11. llANUAtl.
. ^Tke broken column rcured in air,
To bim who m-udo our country great;
" Gan almost cnut its shadows whoro
Tbe victims of a great despair,
In long, long ranks of death await
Tho last loud trump, tho judgement Sun
Which como for all; and soon or lato,
Will come for thoso at Arlington.
In that vast suhclchrc roposo
The thousands i caped from every fray,
Tho men in blius who enco uproso
In battle form to smite their foes,
Tho spartan band who wore the Gray.
Tho combat o'er, the death hug dono,
In cummer blase or winter snows,
They knep tho trace at Arlington.
And almost in myriad graves
Of those who gained t ho unequal llight.
Ars mounds that hide Confederate braves,
Who wreck not how tho north wind raves,
In dazzling day or dimmest night;
O'er those who lost and those who won
Death holds no parley?which was right?
Jchova judges Arlington,
The dead had rest, the'dovo of peace
Brooded o'er each with equal wings,
To both had ciimcjhc grcht surcease.
Tho last omnipotent rolcns
From all tho world's delirious stingo?
Tho bugle deaf and signal gun,
They slertlike heroes of old Greece;
Bcueash the glebe at Arlington.
And in the spring's benignant reign
Tho springs awoko her harp of pines,
Touching her choir a thrilling struin
Of jubilee from land to main ^
13b? danced in emerald dowu the line,
Denying largesse briabt to none,
She saw no difference in the signs
That told who slept at Arlington.
She gave her grasses and her showers
To all alike who dreamed iu dust;
Her song birds wove their dainty bowers
In midst of jnssamino leaves and Sowers,
They piped with an impartial trust;
Woofs of the air and liberal sun.
Their guileless glees and worn kind just
To friend aud loo at Arlington.
And mid tho generous spring there oamo
Somo women of the land who strove,
To mnke this funcaul field of fnrno
Glad as tho May God's ultar flame
V?P nir.dful who hud lost o?r-?'<??;
Tbe^jy^^^fi .v. j-rgon* of a name;
j-t0 norm, no Bouth at Arlington.
Between thoir pious thoughts and God;
j Stood files of men with brutal steel,
The garlands placed on rebel sod
Wtro trampled iu the common olod
To dio beneath the hirelings heel
Facing tlm triumph of tho Hun.
Our smoky Ccasar gave no nod,
To keep the peace at Arlington;
Jchova judge?abashing man?
V^For-in tho vigils of the night
His mighty storm avengers ran
Together in ono choral class
Bcbuking wrong, rewarding right
Plucking wreaths from those who won.
Tho tempest heaped them dewy bright
On rebel graves it Arlington.
And when tho morn came fresh and fair,
Brim full of blushes ripo and red,
Knee deep in heavon sent roses there,
Natnr? began her earliest prayer;
Abovo triumphant Southern dead,
So, in tho dark and in the sun;
Our causo survives the tyrant's tread;
Itsleopi to wake at Arlington. -
Farmers predict n hard winter be
cause rabbits are burrowing fa r into the
ground. It is wise in a rabbit to do
this. If ho didn't, some young man
would hayc him out of that with a fork
e'd stick pretty quick. However, if
that is a sign, it cau bo offset by the ac
tion of certain cockroaches around this
office. Not ono( of them has even com
iBenc1frtr?,to dig yet. Thoy ramble
around as if they expected apple trees
t? "blossom in January, and sort o* turn
up thoir noses when thoy bear anything
about cold weathor or tho wolf of starva
tion. Thoy don't seem to enro a cent
whether they swing on a gn b buruer or
rooston tho steam pipes, aud their utter
recklessness goon to show that tho com
ing wintor won't be of much account.?
