They were ambulances bearing woTmded from Stone river, who for a number of days had been expected at the hospital on l.llh street. I recalled that the surgeon in charge had told me the day before he had received a telegram, bidding him expect them by bout, twenty four hours after date of dispatch. There were a number of volunteers and reserved hands standing near as he spoke, and he asked us all to be on the spot when they arrived, as for a few hour.-; theie would be a press of wo! k. Now here they were, twelve hours eailier, and jtit at the time when every body in hospital ami f quare w as least prepared for them. lly resohe was quickly taken; I, of all in the house, was alone awake; it was only a few steps to the hospital ; so. hurrying on mv clothes, I stepped j out of my low window on to the 1 ore 1. iMi uowii i ;rougu back yard, through a gate 1 oreli. ran down through the long into an foi ci lot. in western s; e-ch called commons; 1 gained the street without disturbing mv body bid 1 .!!!.- ihn 1.5r vv f. i' mil I Min 1 win. was so shocked at mv irregular pio ceedings that he planted himstb 1 -1 I T t III f'll.

'Keen him from talkinir and mov- ing so much,' said the surgeon Then I began telling him what his folks (as he culled them) were doing at home, and a in hisdclirnnn he had let fall many things that guided me. I felt I did'no wrong either to him or the others present by cheating thewi of a few -.mintcs of misery. fter ilai v, Kit s chief thought seem ed to be of some grounds he wanted dug up and planted with rose bush es.

"Why, you brought me one, didn t you''' Strangely enough, as I passed through thei orch, I took alfillf open ed bud from a house rose that stood there.and fastened it in my belt. Slow ly his lingers moved as if he would like it, and 1 loosed it from its confine ment, and put it to the pale lips, as pure as they were young. Jle kiss ed it eagerly, murmuring something about bringing it from home. Then I held it where his eyes saw it as long as they saw an thing earthly. Ami that afternoon I sent that white rose to the far olf Michigan home, where the real 3Iary will sit and weep for her hero through many a golden day.
