They fought that freedom might be spared
To shelter souls oppressed.
These put aside the Joys of youth.
Dared struKgle, pain and tears;
Dearer to them a nation's truth
Thau eaae of aelflsh years.
And long as human hearts shall move.
Or honor crowns the brave.
So long shall fold a uattou's love
Above the soldier's grave.
And oft as time's revolving hours
This tribute day shall bring.
So on these graves with sweetest flowers
shall blossom wilh the tpring.
The Vraaml "bararl4a
This expedition which wes to meet
, on the transfer steamer, Vice-Presi-
but we backed Iron, the wharf amidst
mu,ic ami cheers and nozzled our
;WRV through a. cloud of fog to the
i Illinois hore. from whence we took
tue cars for Carboudale to visit the
normal school at that place. Mr.
; Hatcher, the superiuteudent of the
' roa,i wa vcrv attentive and watchful
of the safety ot his precious freight,
; doing all in his pow er to make the
; ,rip salc ,! pi.-aut for ,n. Between
,ll0 Cape nn.lt. rand Tower, we passed
several fiirm-gardeus where wheat
was replaced by rhubarb aud corn by
peas etc. We did not delay on our
jjuimiey but went straight to Grand
Tower w here we made a short stop to
Lee ,iic toner-rock aud objects of iu-
j terest , aI Bojourners on the river.
Starting again, our next halt was
Murphysboro. where wc saw the tall
chininev s of the mines, also the tower
of the water works, all new to us.
From this we passed through a beau-
, lih,i count rv. large fields of w heat.
COJ,v farm homesteads that betokened
peace and pleuty. Reaching our des
tination wc were met at the depot
with a warm welcome by the faculty
aud students of the normal school,
who gave us a kindly greeting and
led us to the halls of their magnificent
building. The park was beautiful
with its flowers, sparkling fountain
and lake. Alter wandering through
the park aud seeing its charms, we
were escorted back to the building
ami entered the large chapel on the
second lloor where we listened to the
moruing exercises, aud after that w c
visited the maguiliccnt reception
rooms where we rested, then wc
were led up to tin tower and looked
all over the tow n of Carbondale. Our
next visit was to the primary rooms,
thence to the library where wc found
a graud collection of liooks. The
society rooms were models of neat
ness ami taste, aud all the classes we
heard seemed lo be doing nice work.
Wc cxamiued the writiug room which
was decorated with pictures, the work
of the pupils, all of w hich was highly
creditable to them.
Noou ami dinner were announced
and w e were led to a large dining
hall where wc partook of a rich feast
of good things. It was there that Mr.
Mid bell showed his waut of gallantry,
by calling for and eating, three plates
of strawberries: making us blush for
his uugentlemanly actions.
l.e-cuteriug the chapel Prof. Norton
made us a short address thauking the
professors aud students for their lav
ish kindness, which was followed by
Prof. Mel ice and others. Theu essays
tvere read ami songs sung, closed by
music by the baud. We then went ou
a pilgrimage about the town which
we found nea. clean and w ell shaded
with trees ami parks, that lent a charm
to the place. No cows, no pigs claim
ing the sidewalks, or trap-doors and
steps to fall on. Why can't our own
tow n he as ueat as Carbondale?
An incident, Mr. Mitchell while on
Hie way up. failed to get up and give
M rs. Norton a seat while she w as stand
ing in the passageway.
After a day of real enjoyment one
that will remain green iu our mem
ories through life, we bade our new
found friends good-bye, aud 1 can as
sure them that their kindness to ns
strangers, has made a lasting impres
sion ou our uiiud.
Our journey home was both quick
and safe, thauks to the rare of Mr.
Batcher and his employers, not for
getting the captain of the Vice-President
who made ns all feel safe while
on lMiard of his steamer. Our short
run up the river was one long to be
remembered, every house, sehool and
street was packed with crowds of
people w aving us a hearty welcome
lo our homes. At the Levee the mu
sic of the band was completely
drowned by the cheers of the multi
tude that had gathered to receive ns
back to our grand State. Thus ended
oue of the most pleasant days of my
life, and I trust wc may have many
more like it w bile gathering an edu
cation at the Normal.
