AULD ROBIN GRAY
By Ltkdy Anne Barnard
LADY ANNK BARNARD (1760-1826) was the daughter
of tho Earl of Balcarrcs and wife of Sir Andrew Bar
nard, llbrariun to George III. She wrote nothing that
has come down to posterity but the beautiful Scottish
ballad given below and its sequel. For hulf a century
the authorship of "Auld Robin Oray" was a secret, but
in 1623 Lady Barnard, in a letter to Sir Walter Scott, ac
knowledged it as her own.

And a' tho weary warld to rest are gane;
The waes o' my heart fa' in showers fruc my ee,
Uukent by my gudemun wha sleeps sound by me.
Young Jamie lo'ed me weel, and socht Hie for his bride; y?
But, saving a crown piece, he had nuethiug beside.
To make the crown a pound, my Jamie gaed to sea;
And the crown and tho pound they were balth for met
He hadna been gane nwa u twelvemonth and a day,
When my father brake his arm, and the cow was stown awa;

But hard blew the wluds, and his ship was a wrack;
His ship was a wrack! Why dldna Jamie die?
Or why am I spared to cry, Wae's mo?
My father urged me snlr,?my mlther dldna speak,
But she looked in my face till my heart was like to breakj
"'hey gled him my hand, my heart was in the sea;

Kight months ago I was bo ill
that I was compelled to lio or sit
down nearly all tho time. My
stomach was so weak and upset
that I could kepp nothing on it
and I vomited frequently. I
could not urinate without great
pain and I coughed so much that
my throat and lungs were raw
and sore. The doctors pro
nounced it Bright's disease and
others said it was consumption.
It mattered little to mo what
they called it and I had no de
sire to live. A sister visited me
from St. liOiiia and asked mo if
I had over tried Wino of Cardui.
I told her I had not and she
bought a bottle. I believe that
itiaved my life. I heliovemany
women could save much suffer
ing if thoy but know of its value.
Don't you want freedom from
pain? Tako Wino of Cardui
and make one supremo effort to
be well. You do not need to ho
a weak, helpless sufferer. You
can havo a woman's health and
do a woman's work in life. Why
not secure a bottlo of Wine of
