(3 IN MGMOltlAM.. HV l((): VKHTM'.lt JEKl-'UV. ,Uo, unfurl tin' broml Mack banner, Of a Nation' iirW.t to-cluy ; Float tin- IhmIiii'8 of her niourriini; Down tlie golden deeps of Mny. Tell in mournful, in art la 1 music, Of a Nation's idol dead; Of a brave sword sheathed forever; Of ii knightly spirit tied. Statesman, orator and liero, Passed away e'er set of 6un Tliousrh at morn his path was lilnsliiiii;, Willi tlie honors he hud won. On a darker sky at nootide, Writ in tire wc read his fame Circled i-till by dewy laurels, Worn ttnscorchcd amid the flame. Thrcuu'h proud triumphs never boastful; Ever patient in defeat, To mourn for hi in, with harmony A Nation's heart should beat. Blue or rray, It matters little; Soldiers bow beside his j;rave, for ye saw him stand in battle, And brave men must love the brave. Even those w ho fell before him, Solemn requiems do toll, , For across the Stygian river, Never Hashed a nobler soul. Vail the line of that dark water, He has met them all to day, For the roll our Master's eallin? Marks no timo 'twixt blue and (,'r.iy. Marshalled there once more as brothers, Far above the battle-tide, Where the blue was turned to purple, And the ;riiy In crimson dyed. As we or.ee rejoiced together, At his glory in its prime, Let us shrine his stainless honor For our people and our time. As an orator, inspired Earncsjt, eloquent yet w hen His lips were sealed, such silence Shamed the speech of weaker men. On the pathway of an exile, Dark and coll of joy bereft A shadow of its greatness Has liis kingly presence left. And a lesson in this story Through its light aid shade appears; Let us read the grain of Egypt, Collined for three thousand years. Lost for agts will, If taken From a mummy's shrivelled hand; And planted spring to harvest. For the reapers of the land. Li t his valor, patience, prudence, Like the germ of I'haraoh's corn, Live forever for free nations, And t!ieir freemen yet unborn. I would snatch an angel's feather, While his proud wing leeks the blue, To chronicle the story Of a man so (rent and true. I would dip that cloud-nursed pinion la tlie fountains of the sun, To tell of hero, statesman, Friend all noble all in. one. King a measure grand, heroic, To his fame but let the dove Lend her plume to trace our sorrow, And her wail to tell our love. ..IVCAXTLK IN SIM IN, The garret 1 live in Is lonely, I keep up no sumptuous state, For lacqueys and grooms I hae only. Myself on myself now I wait. So I ve built me a marvelous mansion, And laid out n royal demensc, With a tow'rol imposing ixpiii.Mi..: . My Ca.-lle in Spain. A park of old oak-trees caresses 'the glint of the summer sun there (Just now all the woods I possess is Confined to u table and chair). It stands on an eminence hilly (At present my life Is all plain,; Oh, it warms me to build when I'm chilly My C'n.-tle in Spain. Through my grounds winds a river sedately, Unlike that old pump in the yard: My friends there are pompous and stately, And not with liohemiu tarred. And yet, the old friends I Invito to Come over and share in my reign ; They have all an equivalent right to My Castle in Spain. . And what gives the crowning expression To this sweet Iberian life, The range of my Spanish possession Is shared by a beautiful wife. But my pipe has gone out, and my splendid Old chateau and fair chatelaine With the smoke wreath have faded, and ended My Castle in Spain. WAS IT MURDER?

It was but a thoughtle.s young cat, that might have prow a better with time and teaching. Hut uiy mother declared she was out of patience with her. 'One dark December day I came home from 6c!iool and found mother in our tidy kitchen where we always took our meals in winter. She was busy netting the table for tea, an J in a crent passion besides. I soon saw the reason. The cream jug was turned over, broken, and the cream spilled. Of course the young cat was the culprit, although she was nowhere to be sen. Mother spoke up s uddenly and sharply: "Eddie, I'll give you a silver quarter of 1 dollar if you will take that cat and drown her. I can never leave the room one minute but the is up on the table. And now see she has gone and broken my best creaisvjujr. Ml give you a silver quarter ot a dollar if you wil! tie a stone around Iter neck and drown her.' A ailvcr quarter!
