But though thd skies were bluo and cloudless and tho earth radiant In her robo of grcenr with flowers beautltil and fragrant on her boson!, the beartt nf men and women tocro heavy and norrowful, for tho roll ing smoko ot cannon hid tllo very heav ens and stains redder than the field pop ples dyed thn-grass, whllo tho rattle ot musketry and tho tread ot marching men drowned tho songs of the birds and tho sound of weeping startled them into silenre. The fair hills of Virginia looked down on earuago and sights too pitiful to name, and her rlvow ran rod with tho blood ot many a gallant sol dier for whom a grayhalred mother or tender wlfo and children wept In their far Northern homo or mourned beneath the silnriy 'oklcs of Dixie. But nestling closo to the rugged sldo of tho mountain, Hko a sparrow'" nost under the grim buttresses of soino old castle, tho litllo Ullage ot C'Unei-sidc heard only from afar those dreadful rounds that told of deatli and sorrow. Sometimes a 11: wly-ralsed regiment, marching down lo Join the force about Richmond, would ro by gay In uniform and fluttering flags alas, alas! how soon to have their bravery torn by shot and dimmed witli bloody (lew. These splendid cavalcades went by watched with frantic envy by two big eyes like twin wood Unlets from tho window of a pretty white house that stood half way up the mountain, anil was thn heme, nf one fair, gentle lady to whom Manassas had meruit widowhood. TboMj pretty wistful eyes wero tho baby's whose, licur' swelled at thn mar tial music until it grew ton much for a four-year-old to stand, and so ho declar ed his lltod and desperate resolution to become "a suldicr too." .Mamma caught tho tiny form with tl ager bice to her breast, thinking of other mothers whoso s(yis had onco been innocent litllo chil dren, too, and who nuw. perhaps, lay on somn battle-field with their faces turned upward to tho sky. and a bullet In tho quiet hearts. And her own ejes were dim for a soldier who inarched away ono bright spring U.iy to return no more to that loving' household on tbo mountain. But the baby was firm, so mamma fastened a marvelous uniform for her warrior, with glittering buttons and a Colonel's star, and grandma, on conill tlon that It bo not removed from tl scabbard, "lent a "really" sword, which had been to Mexico with grandpa when hn went long ago with General iaylor. A drum ot Aunt Dicey's own loving manufacture, and presented with her black faco gleaming with satisfaction, and a liirr hat contributed by Slstor Liz zie, who cheerfully turned her own and onlv Gainsborough, which, with its curl ing feather, had been tho prldo of her heart, Into a cavalryman's dashing chapeall, completed tho equipment of a bold soldier. Ho was not a very terrifying object though, for his eyes were blue and Inno cent, and bis hair fell curling and long, bright strands from under hishat, whllo bis mouth was like a rose-bud trying to frown fiercely, and his chubby hands wero only just able to drag tho heavy sword lu a very unmililary fashion aftor him. So nil the lonu', bright summer the baby played at war and drilled tho maple trees on tho lawn with snverlty and diligence, until if they were not ready to march away and strike a blow for their country It was certainly not tho fault of their gallant llttlo com niandcr. lie patfolud tho premises liko a faithful sentinel and gnu) litsaitmlr insr women folks his frequent and solemn promiso to stand by and protect them should occasion arise. And sure enough, dark and gloomy on the pago of tho future was written tho coming of an hour when Clovorsldo was to bo the scene of tho meeting of tho two hostile forces. Not very large ones, to bo sure, onlv two skirmishing parties, but led by desperate tueil and composed of others sworn to vengeance for per sonal wroiigs suffered atfoeman's hands, This hour caino jdst as tbo siimmor lay a-dvlliL'. beautiful beyond telling even In her decay, for nature crowned the passing season'- brow with her choicest L'lorlcs to hide, as It were, lis fading. The baby's maple squad bad put olf its riflemen's green and stood bright and ruddv In artillery scarlet, whllo banners of manv-hued leaves and vines swim, lightly from tho mountain side. Closo to tho pretty singing brook that wound Its sliver ribbon about tbo foot of the grim old mountain worn planted one day dreadful widu-mouthod cannon with a horrid threat In each dark throat clots in tho poacoful scene, and a hun dred or moro stern-voicod, gloomy-eyed men stood behind them waiting for tho foe who was coming prcsontly down tho road. Tho sun roso higher and higher, vailing its faco from what was to como in a purple hazo, when tramp, tramp came tho advancing army, marching down to what each man know would In all probability bo a battle unto death, for In order to pass It was necessary to tako tho battery that hold tho narrow road. Each party reserved its flro by order, nnd only tho tread of foot, the gleam of fixed bayonets, and a low growling of commands from an officer hero and thero betrayed tho orrand of these Invaders to that quiet spot. But as the two lines of sot, dollnnt faces glared Into each other something happened. Out from tho sumach bushes on the sldo of tho roadyi marched a tiny llguro, Dravciy uragging aftor it in tho dust a sword. Tho big hat with its flaunting feathor had fallen over ono blue oyo, but tho other glanced joyously from ono body of soldiers to the other. 110 marcnoa wim grcas uig nlty down botweon tho two linos and paused about to speak when forward ran ovorv man from both sides and closed upon him. But oh! no harm was moant, for tho babv form and littlo faco had awakened tendor memories of such another at home, as of one's own happy childhood in every breast, and with a common Im pulse to snatch htm from his perilous place, each bounded forward, fearful lost tho othor side open fire and a shotDleicc, that tiny soldier's uniform. Hut tho crowd ot mingled blito and gray-clad nion gavo back quickly, when a flying figure, with gay turban all awry and checked dros), sailing In Its solf-croated breeze, dashed in its midst. , "Olmmo that child hero," cried Aunt Di-ey, hysterically. "Tu'n round bore, my angel pettlklns, an' lot yo' mammy seolfdcso hero scamps donohu'tmy surrar lumn." She examined tho child carofully and then, holding him whllo that valiant warrior wopt loudly and bitterly, har rangued tho soldiers. "You'so a protty lot; ain't yer now? Comin' horo glttln' up a fuss right 'fo' 'spectablo peoplo, till I dcclar dls yer baby had ter como tor shame you. Its lowhornod, dat's wa't it 'tis, an' Its mo, Aunt Dicey, wa't tolls you so, right In yo' Impidont faces.

And oil went tho heroic old woman with her struggling, shrloklng charge, followed by shouts of ungovornablo laughter, which, howoer, won 110 notice from thu disdainful Aunt Dicey. The soldiers then stood looking wist fully at each other, and glancing with eyes filled with dew that tooic noiumg from their manhood at tno Dig nat which bad fallen oil and been forgotten during tbo owner's lato unfair contest with his dusky conquoror and now lay in tbo dust. Very reverently a soldier in gray held it up and held It, whllo an other In bluo stuck tbo loosened feather back in place. Tho two bands then formed in silence and with no longer anv deslro for battlo marched away in opposlto directions, but ero tbo orders to movo wero given a whlto-naireu -oi- ouel stepped forward and raised his shabby cap.

"Tho first time was in New Haven, twenty-five yeara ago, just after tho closo ot the war. I was visiting my friend Mrs. iionaiu i. Mitchell, who then lived at;nw llaven. Ono afternoon sho began to toll mo ot tbo ravages committed by General Sher man's army on her father's plantation in South Carolina, nnd tho story was so sad that wo both shed bitter tears. That evening I went to a l.irgo party. Tho first thing I saw on entering tho room was a tall man in military dress sur rounded by a llttlo court of ladies and gentlemen. 'Who's thatV I asked. Somebody replied, 'General Sherman.' 1 did not stop to think what I was doing, butrushod up to him and seized bim with both hands. I am not suro but I shook him, for I was almost beside my self. 'Oh General Sherman!' I cried, 'how could you let your men treat my friend in that way! they broke her beau tiful piano, they ruined her carpots, they smashed tbo pictures of her dead father and mother' then I burst into tears. "General Sherman was terribly moved. 'For God's sake, madam, calm yourself,' ho said. 'Theso things aro horrible, lint they aro tho fortuno of war. Calm yourself, I was not there, or I should havo stopped it.' "Then," continued Aunt Fann.-" I turned, nnd without replying rured from tho room, btill sobbing. You can imagino tho commotion 1 created; In fact I broko up tho party. "Tho next tinio I saw General Sher man was at tho Inaugural ball at tho Metropolitan Opora-bouso. Mrs. Hicks Lord, loaning on tho arm of tho General, catno faco to faco with mo in tho prom enade Sho stopped mo and said, 'Aunt Fanny, I want you and Gonoral Sher man to know- each other,' Tho General bowed gallantly. I did the same, somo what frigidly, I fear, and then passed on. " 'Who Is that woman, Mrs. Lord?' asked tho General. " 'Whv, that is Mrs. Barrow Aunt Fanny,' she roplled. What is thero between that llttlo woman and me?' said the General, knit ting his brows. 'Something terrlblo happened to mo once, with which sho was connected what is it what is it?' Mrs Loid could not tell him, for sho did not know," 6aid Mrs, Barrow in con clusion; "and General Sherman was un able to remember.'
