OUR HERITAGE. "We lay a wreath upon his grave,—not sad That in his death a nation's tears were shed, That he had borne the cross, that he had bled, That he had suffered martyrdom but glad That to his fame the hours and days must add New lustre, that his story will be sped Today to millions, and when prayers are said His name will rise in homely virtues clad. His toil, his tears, his life, his deeds are ours, An inspiration born 'neath lowering skies— His laurel crown is now entwined with flow'rs, The symbols of his love and sacrifice And as a torch his glory glows to light The ways of men to Peace, and Truth, and Right. Barry Bullock. &pril My name is April, sir, and I Often laugh, as often cry, And I cannot tell what makes me! Only as the thought o' ertake me! I must dimple, smile and frown, Laughing though the tears roll down But 'tis nature, sir, not art, And I'm happy at my heart. Ladies' Home Journal.
