He replied: "I made application for a furlough, and it was rejected ; again I made application and it was rejected; a third time I made application, aud it was rejected; and that night, as I wnnderea backward and forward in the camp, thinking of my home, with the mild evès of Lucy -- *- - ff MP to u,e . und the burning words of Mary sinking into my brain, I was no longer the Confederate sol dier, but I was the father of Lucy and the hnsbapd. of Mary, and I would have passed those lines if every gun iu the battery had fired upon me, I went to my, home. Mary ran out to meet ma; her Angel arm» embraced me, and she whispered, 'O, Edward, I am so glad yon got a furlough !' She must, have felt me shudder, for she turned pale as death, and catching her breath at every word, she said. 'Have you come without your furlough ? Oli Edward, go back I go back! Let me and the children go down together to the grave, but O, for heaven's sake, save the honor of our name!' And I __ as It. S one save the honor of our name!'

During the second battle of Cold Harbor when, shot and shell were f»H "*® torrents from the mountain cloud, my attention was directed to the fact that one of our batteries was being silenced by the concentrated fire of the enemy. When I reached the battery every gun but one had been dismantled, and by it stood a solitary Confederate soldier, with blood stream ing from his side. Ab he recognized me, he elevated bis voice above the roar of battle^ and said, "General, I have one shell left, 1 ell me, have I saved tho honor of Mary and Lucy?" I raised my hat. Once more a Confederate shell went crashing through the ranks of the enemy, and the hero sank by his gun to rise no more. l a Ir it is Ont.tJFashîohabiie. —A writer in tbe Orphan'« Friend thus hit« offi some of the absurdities attendant upon following thp fashions : Do anything yon please now-a-days, no matter how absurd, and wear any tlnng you like, po matter how ridftra lons; and if any one, by even so much as a Idok, question the propriety of it, « stare which announces your con tempt of their ignorance, remark in a inatter-of-fnet tone that ** if* the fosh K,n VC Xkat'B^sufficicnt excuse for any and every folly under the sun.
