Thcro's a little drawer In my chamber
Guardad with tenderest oar?,
Where the daiuty clothes aro lying,
Thatsaxdarliag afcaU never waa?? .-. l ;
And moro, woiie tue honra ar?, waning, .
V Till tba houao is all at rest,
I eit and fahey c. baby
Closo to my aching breast.
My darling's pretty, white garments!
I wrought them, sitting apart,
Whtlb MB mystic life waa throbbing
Hadar my throbbing heart,
And often my happy dreaming
Breaks in a little song,
Liko the murmur of birds at brooding,
- When the days are warm and lung.
I finished the dainty wardrobe
? And the drawer waa almost fall
With robes of, tho finest muslin,
And robes of the whitest wool.
I folded them all. together,
With a rose for every pair.
Smiling, and saying, "Gem fragrant,
j fit for my prince to wear."
And, the radiant summer morning,
80 full of a mother's joy!
"Thank God, ho ia fair and porfeet.
My beautiful, new-born boy."
Let him wear the pretty, white garments
I wrought while sitting apart;
Lay him, so sweet and so helpless,
. Here, close to mr throbbing heart.
Many and many an .evening
I sit, since my baby carno,
Saving, "What do the angola call him?"
For lie died without a name;
Sitting while hours aro waning,
Add the houae is all at rest,
And fancy a baby nestling
Close to my aching breast.
THE WRONG TICKET.
One of the many men who came and
vent as pationts in ward six of our hos?
pital at Washington, was Bernard Heine,
a handsome, stalwart Germ un, fresh,
blonde,' brave nn? merry. He was there
tbree months in all; and being a social
fellow, and a favorite of mine, told me j
all his history, in general terms at first,
but gradually growing more confidential
as ho know me better and became more
aeiored of ruy sympathy. I knew what
a wild/adventurous yon th he had been
in the dear old fatherland; by what hair
brained serapes ho had angered his
friends; how, at nineteen yenrs of age,
be had run away and come to this coun?
try; bow hi? parents had died darin" the I
two years in which he had heard nothing
from borne, and they nothing from him;
and how. sore his heart was when he
thought of them, and knew what grief
be must have caused them. I knew about
the Van Dorms, with whom he had
boarded two years before he entered the
army, and how the young people were j
like brothers and sisters to him, and the
old people like father ami mother, and
how Lizzie Van Dorm wrote to him every
week. And here I guessed somewhat
more than I knew. I guessed from the
slight embarrassment, the mingled cold?
ness and kindness with which he ac?
counted for his having entered the army,
the faint shade of annoyance which
sometimes crossed his faoe when ho read
her letters, and his slowness in answer?
ing them, that Miss Liza was fonder of
him than he of her. I have known cases
where nice yoong men had been cordial?
ly received and fondly cherished in fami?
lies where there are marriageable daugh?
ters, and where, in spite of themselves,
the force of circumstances had obliged
them to assume ties whioh they took re?
I like to see men do their owu wooing,
and always respect a man that flies from
a wooing woman. So many guesses
made me like this young soldier all the
better. He had made his will before en?
tering the army, he told me, and left
everything he had, among the rest a lifo
insurance of $5,000, to the Van Dorms.
He exaggerated his causes of gratitude
to them. He had no one else ia tho
world who cared for him; and, besides
their general friendliness, they had nurs?
ed him through a severe sickness, nod
refused to take any extra pay for it.
"They are the only ones in the world
who would mourn, if I should happen
to get a bullet through me," he said,
with a touch of bitterness in his voice,
which showed that there was something
yet untold ia his story.
Later, one evening, wheu I was sitting
by him to soothe and quiet him, after
the tormentiug pain of having his
wounded foot dressed, I got tho rest of
the story. He was feeling unusually de?
pressed that night, aud see tn ed to wish
for a confidant. It was then I first heard
Helen Ayre's name. She was a little
yellow-haired school-mistress, who also
boarded at Mrs. Van Dorm's, had,indeed,
known them longer than he had. I could
see how bc had loved her from tho tone
of unwilling, yearning, angry tender?
ness with which he spoke her name. I
could see more than that, what he, like
a fool, ns men always aro in such circum?
stances, oould not see, the ungry jeal?
ousy of the Vun Dorms, their insinua?
tions, the seeds of distrust which they
slowly sowed; how, while he had not
dared to speak of lovo to the girl, they
had made him believe that she had
boasted of her power over him; how ho
had been made to think her a coquotte,
aad mercenary, careful not to giro him
too much encouragement till she should
know how much money he had. When
he spoke of her capricious treatment
and growiug coldness toward him, I
could seo that they were reflections of
his own distrust of her, nnd the effect of
their mischief-making. I hinted this to
him, but he could not hear to it. Oh,
the Van Dorms were the salt of the earth,
and his best friends, and they were inca?
pable of deceit.
"But maybe they wanted you for Miss
Liza," I ventured.
He dropped his eye?. "If they did,"
he said, "they would not use dishonest
means to bring it about. I ought to con?
sider that a now proof of their friend?
ship for and confidence in me, even
though I fchonld bo unwilling to gratify
I liked his reservo, and his trust.
They wore honorable.
"Atlast, she left the house and went
somewhere else to board," ho said. "I
think they had been a little cool with
her for treating me so, and she didn't

from tho p?r)o> to! bid her good-bye, and
abo turned ber head away.
"Did yon ever haye any talk, or at?
tempt uuy explunatiou with her?" I
*'No. We never had anything on the
subject, either understanding or mis?
"Master Heine," I said, emphatically,
"it is my private opinion that you have
been made a dope of."
He smiled faintly as he shook his
"Oh, if you kuew them you wouldn't
"Havo you over heard from her since
you came here?" I asked.
"Not a word."
I was silent a moment, wondering if
the poor little yellow-haired school mis?
tress might not have been breaking her
heart slowly duriug tho last year, aud if
sho kuew just where I was at that mo?
ment, if she would not consider mo tho
most enviable woman in all thc world.
"I wonder uouc of tho Van Dorms
come out to seo you," I said, presently.
"Oh, they wauted to come," was his
quiok reply; "but Mrs. Van Dorm has
been sick, and there was no one else who
could leave. Liza had to take care of
her mother. The boys and their father
are driven with business. Besides, I
wrote them that I was only slightly burt;
and yon know I am going to have n fur?
lough in a few weeks."
Our conversation was interrupted
here, for sick and wounded were brought
in, and I bad to attend to them. Tho
ward already seemed nearly full; but
maDy were convalescent, and those wo
wished banished to the convalescent's
room, and crowded all the beds wo could
get into the ward. The nest morning,
the man in the bed next to Heine's, died.
As tho custom was, as soon us ho died,
the card containing his name, age, place
of birth, regiment, company, rank aud
disease, was taken down from the wall at
the head of his bed, and carried to the
office to bo recorded and reported. The
weather was cool and his funeral was put
off till tho next afternoon.
The next day, just after funeral time,
as I sat in the ward taking a few min?
utes' rest after giving the three o'clock
medicines, I glanced toward tho door,
and saw two spcetres there. To be sure,
they were men, stout and tanned, but
their faces were, in spite of4tan, of a
siokly white, and their eyes were open
and fixed glaringly. They both were
staring at Heine, who sat np in bed
reading the Washington Slur newspaper.
I approached them, though hali
afraid. If they were madmen, it would
be well to have them Btopped on the
threshold; if they were clairvoyants, who
beheld some vision of horror to us un?
seen, I felt safer to be uear their piercing
"You wish to see any oue?" I asked
politely, much as in a dream wo compli?
ment a wolf or a panther who we expect
will devour us tho next moment.
One of tho men never stirred, uoi
seemed to hear me; but the other, with
out turning his eyes from their terrifi?e
gaze, poiuted mutely, and with a shak
iug hand, to the man who sat so calmly
reading bis newspaper.
' 'That is Bernard Heiue, " I said. * 'Die
yon wish to seo him?"
The mun shuddered.
"He is dead!" he said. "We hav<
just been to his funeral."
"Oh, no! it is a mistake," I repli?e
soothingly, beginning to seo what wm
the matter, though not knowing how th?
mistake had occurred. "Ho is getting
along nicely. There is not the leafst like
lihood of his dying at present."
"But," the man persisted, still staring
"his death was reported, with his age
place of birth, his regiment and compa
ny, and we have been together the whol
year. We heard tt, aud saw it in th?
morning's paper, aud we came down fron
Camp Distribution to his funeral."
By this time tho other mau had got hi
jaws together and looked at me.
"Did you get uear enough to tho chap
lain at tho funeral to hear the name
read?" I asked.
"No, wo were late, aud the names hac
been read," was the reply, "But we sat
the paper, with all the particulars iu it.
I could but smile at his persistence.
"Well, you can go and ask him if h
is dead," I said, turning away to attem
to my business.
They crossed the ward warily, wit
their eyes still intently fixed on the ol
ject of their incredulous fear, and wht
they wero half way across, Heine looke
up and saw them. A bright smile brok
over his face, and ho held out both bandi
"How nre you, Herman? And yo
Matt? I'm glad to soo you."
At the souud of his ringing voice, au
the sight of his cheery face, their hu
doubt vanished and they sprang forwar
to grasp his hand, aud one hung aboi
bis neck and kissed him, and burst int
tears, while the other stood silent, bi
with brimmiug eyes aud quivering li[
It made my own fill.
At first Heiue listened to their s.or
with wondering incredulity, and sui
dooly turned about aud reached the car
over his bod. He glanced over it un
then looked ut mc.
"Have you succeeded in couvincii]
your friends that you are not dead?"
asked, going to him.
Ho gave me the card. "That e
plains," he said. "Yon know our bc<

Heine seemed much moved, not i
mach at Ute thought of death associate
with him; he had become to famili
with it for that, bat at the sight of h
friends* unexpected devotion.
I left them, and they sat long with hit
i not going till the very last minute th
left them time to get to camp before thc
pass should be overstayed. I found th

nificantly. "It is not the deepest or
truest affection that professes the most."
He dropped his eyes, and for a mo?
ment was silent. Then he saul :
"They will all hear of my death. Ned
Trask, who told these fellows, told them
he had written to Van Dorms and sent
"Such au unluoky mistake!" I said,
and went iu a fever of annoyance, to
scold the ward-master and send the right
card to tho office.
JLater in the afternoon, Heine beckon?
ed me to him. Thoro was a little unu?
sual color in his face, and a light in Ins
eyes; and though he smiled, it was not a
"I've been thinkiug that I will wait
awhilo before writing," he said. "Per?
haps I ought not, but I would like to see
how they all take it."
I agreed with him. Perhaps it was
wrong, but I also would like to know
how they all would take it. So we prac ?
ticed a "masterly inactivity," and waited.
Two days after, as quickly as the mail
could carry a letter, came an epistle di?
rected to tho lady nurse of ward six,
Now Jerusalem hospital. I opened it,
and read at tho bottom of tho second
page. "Gertrude C. Van Dorm." Itwos
a precious epistle, written, as she assured
me, by a woman at death's door, although
the writing was uncommonly firm, and
tho language surprisingly fluent for a
person in that condition. She also as?
sured mo that the deceased was unto her
like a son, being engaged to her eldest
daughter. I read it all, then went and
sat by Heine, feeling augry enough with
him for his engagement, and fully will?
ing to teach him tho wholo truth.
"Heine," I said, holding up the letter
before me, "Mrs. Van Dorm is anxious
that your watch and any papers and
nionoy you may have died possessed of,
should bo sent to her forthwith."
Ho colored, and looked intently at me,
but said nothing.
"She says that shebas dono a great
deal for you," I went on, "and that yon
aro under great obligations to her."
"I told you what they have done," he
said, a little hastily. "For tho rest, I
have always paid my board, and never
counted tho many presents I have mudo
them. I tried to pay them ten-fold al!
the expense they have been at for me,
and I guess I have succeeded."
"She is very far gone," I said, show?
ing him tho letter. "See how feeble the
writing is? It is impossible for them to
come on after your body. She supposes
it will bo decently buried here."
Heine grow redder in the face, and a
look of pain and mortification clouded
his usually frank expression.
"She says that you were engaged to
her daughter," I said finally.
A spark of fire shot from his wide
"It is a lie!" he cried.
I gave him the letter and he read it,
his hands shaking aud his eyes flashing,
while ho read, aud at tho last word, he
fiercely tore tho sheet from end to end,
then turned and hid his faco iu his pil?
low. I thiuk the poor fellow shed tears
at the bitterness of this awakening.
I bent over him for a whispered word:
"Ilemember tho comrades who loved
you so much better than you thought.
Perhaps they are not the only ones." I
then left him to get over his troubles as
best he might.
Once iu awhile, as I went about, I
glauced at him, sitting pale and grave,
pretending to read. When I found time,
I was about going to ask him what I
should do about answering the letter,
when one of the nurses came tome, say?
ing that a lady was in my room waiting
to seo me. I went ont immediately.
Going iuto my shaded room, 1 saw a
small black-robed figure sitting in my
arm chair, and as she put her veil further
back, caught sight of a thin, white face;
that turned towards me. Sho said not a
word, and did uot rise, but only sat
there, as if half faintiug, and looked at
mo. Alas! in that sorrowful place, I had
growu too familiar with such sights of
Ou lookiug more closely, I saw that
this little lady was a youug girl, but so
pule and hollow-eyed that ut first glance
I might have taken her for twice her
"My dear," I said, toking her hand,
"you have como here to look for some
friend. Do you know whether he is liv?
ing or not?"
She panted out a breath or two, and
her pale lips fashioned the word "death!''
I turned to tho table and poured her ti
glass of wine. She took it obediently,
and leaned her head against thc back of
the chair, but with her wildly searching
eyes Rtill fixed on me.
"Will you please tell me his name?''
I said, presently.
She strove to speak, but seemed una?
ble to utter the name. Then she put lier
hand to tho bosom of her dress, and
taking therefrom n card photograph,
held it toward ino, but without relin?
quishing it. I looked nud saw a tiue
likeness of Bernard Heiue, in civilian's
dress, evidently taken two or three years
The sight electrified mc. I glanced
np at tho white forehead, and there were
the palo yellow locks drawn back from it,
and there waa tho violet blue of the eyes,
in which Heine had never aeon such
anguish, so that only tho color waa left
true of his description.
