The great wheels of heavy wagons '
lnml.ering blowly over the um-veii
pavements, so clanked and rolled
and creaked and dragged, that they
; waked me from sleep, and caused me -
to jump cpneUy out ot hod and open
the blinds. The grayncss of early
j morning-, so rested upon and en-
M.rouded every object oi the wide-
treeted, unfamiliar southern city,
that 1 was completely bewildered,
and for a few minutes could not im
agine what those odd looking vehi-
cl. s, eacli one accompanied by an
armed cavalry soldier, could be.

whicli one morning so sickened their
souls and chille-l their bodies? I
nibbed mv eves, ic-membe.ed where
I was, located tho street, and peer
ing through the mi-d, soon saw the
familiar IJ. S. A. on the sides of tin;
cairiages. They were ambulances
bearing woTmded from Stone river,
who for a number of days had been
expected at the hospital on l.llh
street. I recalled that the surgeon
in charge had told me the day before
he had received a telegram, bidding
him expect them by bout, twenty
four hours after date of dispatch.
There were a number of volunteers
and reserved hands standing near as
he spoke, and he asked us all to be
on the spot when they arrived, as for
a few hour.-; theie would be a press
of wo! k. Now here they were, twelve
hours eailier, and jtit at the time
when every body in hospital ami
f quare w as least prepared for them.
lly resohe was quickly taken; I, of
all in the house, was alone awake; it
was only a few steps to the hospital ;
so. hurrying on mv clothes, I stepped
j out of my low window on to the

kitchen to help there, when a ntir-c
met mi' and said the sur-eon v.anted
me at number nine. I went across
the hall to the said number, a little'
room, comparatively, where wer.
about twenty men worse oil than any
I had seen. It seemed as if cverv
one of these furnished eye followed
me as I went to the doctor, who said,
'All the ic.t arc busy ; my ether is
L'one, so I need somehodr. Can von
! hold this fellow's headforafew min
utes? 1 1 is h little wanderinjr, and
keeps talking to somebody he calls
.Mary. He'll think you are she.'
I saw by the arm, ploughed bra
ball from wrist to shoulder, that
there must be an amputation; but
suielv if the doctor coidd do it, and
the mail bear it, I could see it. 'What

Miss, spoke up a big Irishman, so

'I am come to see you, Kit,' and I
put iny cold, shaking hand on his
'You are my Marie, are you not?
I knew by his accent, as well as his
face, that he was German, so I spoke
low to him in that language, and he
accepted me in that hour of extrem
ity for that far away dear one. lie
would talk, telling me, brave, stout
soul that he was 'Now Marie, von
1 saitl 1M run; ask 'em if I did; ask
.'em if I didn't go right through the
Held, up to the rebel guns, 'till I
dropped.' 4L)id he, boysV I would
isay, and when their hearty 'yes"
! would reach his ears, he would open
his eyes and call out cheerily, 'take
it back. Marie, take it back.'
'Keen him from talkinir and mov-
ing so much,' said the surgeon
Then I began telling him what his
folks (as he culled them) were doing
at home, and a in hisdclirnnn he had
let fall many things that guided me.
I felt I did'no wrong either to him
or the others present by cheating
thewi of a few -.mintcs of misery.
fter ilai v, Kit s chief thought seem
ed to be of some grounds he wanted

es. You'll tell 'em when wc go home,
if I can t; we will have the roses if
wc can t have anything else, you like
em so. "Why, you brought me one,
didn t you'''
Strangely enough, as I passed
through thei orch, I took alfillf open
ed bud from a house rose that stood
there.and fastened it in my belt. Slow
ly his lingers moved as if he would like
it, and 1 loosed it from its confine
ment, and put it to the pale lips, as
pure as they were young. Jle kiss
ed it eagerly, murmuring something
about bringing it from home. Then
I held it where his eyes saw it as long
as they saw an thing earthly. Ami
that afternoon I sent that white rose
to the far olf Michigan home, where
the real 3Iary will sit and weep for
her hero through many a golden
Jiut why don't he feel the pain,
lless you, he is too near gone; I
don't think there is a sign of a chance

Do you mean he must die?

was stiange to u.e, and for the first'
time my heart throbbed fearfully. and
