Who marched in our brigade. Their earnest gaze marked bridge and plain, Marked slope and ditch and height, And silent men said prayers again, For few might pray that night: They saw death's trail beyond the banks But no soul was dismayed; When sabers flashed before its ranks, Behind flamed our brigade. The winter's wind moans in the pine; The worn flags proudly tfy, And loyal hands their staves entwine, With them to live or die; One, bright with "Stars and Stripes," was seen And one, war torn, displayed The "Sun-burst" and the Irish "Green" That waved o'er our brigade.

In a little valley in Southern Ver mont lies the picturesque village of Sprucetown. Through this valley runs a clear, sparkling stream, well known to trout fishers. High moun tains rise abruptly on either side, clothed to their summits with the primeval forest, whose even sides appear like a clean-shaven lawn. The village nestles close tothe foot of the mountain, whose giant sides protect it from the careless intrusion of the outside world. Life here moves as quietly and purely as the little stream which runs before the neat cottages of the villagers. At one end of the village street stands the low blacksmith shop, which contends with the store for the honor of being the "temple of gossip." The smi...

The morning following the ball at Mrs. Hartwell's the glorious autumn sun had tracked it wonted way high in the heavens and mingled its warm and cheering rays with the chilly breath of approaching winter. But Nellie still slept, over conscious of the misery that weighed upon her re pentant heart. At last she was awakened by her maid, who came for the nsual purpose of assisting her with her morning toilet. This was her third approach to the cham ber, and having been Nellie's nurse from her infancy, enjoyed many privi leges in the honusehold. She loved Nellie dearly, with an affection equal to that of a mother. Entering the room silently, she stood surveying Nellie's troubled features for a moment, when a sigh escaped the lips of the sleeper. She knew that something was the matter, and awoke her, saying gently: "Up, my dear, it is past ten o'clock." Nellie hid her face in the pillow and moaned. "Why Nellioe,...
