and its consort the Hobo II and invited their lady friends to take a trip down picturesque Rough river to the old Spanish fort At S oclock the cargo of provisions ammunition and fire arms having been stored away safely on board the steamer weighed anchor and left the wharf on Hol brook Boulevard and the voyage be ganIt was a trip oi uninterrupted pleasure and continuous delight The golden yellow of the placid river blended In splendid artistic richness with the mellow haze of the sky and verdant freshness of the foliage which touched its banks in variegated em broidery On either side were splen ded plantations extending back from the moorland to the rugged foothills which were anon interspersed with more ambitious peaks The most delicate touch of the greatest painter could not portray a scene of more picturesque enchantment embellished sublimity or scenic beauty than that which the great Master Artist had here so graciously provided The rich crimson flash ol the cardinal as he flitted from tree to tree the transcendent sweetness of the notes of the mocking bird and the soft balmy fragrance of the air enriched by the odor of innumerable wild flowers touched the esthetic na ture of the voyagers with their per ennial lowliness and peace settled down over their souls like the spirit of a turtle dove Alter an hour had been spent in a rural park over which the fabled Spanish fort stands as a grim and mystic sentinel of the past the party had lunch on the Hobo It was fit for the gods and it showed the most delicate and refined taste in the god desses by whom it had been prepared On the return voyge some manl festations ol sea sickness were dls ernable but a doctor of medicine was not needed In grateful remember ence of the sacrefices of the fathers a continuous

Manhas not Slum bered for Ten Years Says he Intends to Spend Balance of Life in WakefulnessCase- Recalls Edison Theory Albert E Herpln the sleepless wonder of Trenton New Jersey is still awake and according to his own state ment he expects to stay awake the rest of his life Physicians who up to the present time have refrained from making public their opinions of this strange case now come forward and vouch for the truth of the story that Herpin is the sleepless marvel of the century Dr C H Waters of Trenton says Herpine has taken enough drugs in the hope of obtaining sleep to kill an ordinary man many times over He says there is not another case like this The man is never ill never drowsy eats heartily and weighs 183 poundsI treated Albert E Herpin for over ten years says D William B Van Euyn of TrentonlIand his case stands alone At his request I have said nothing about him till now but from my own observation his case stands alone In medical history Physicians have doubted that he has not slept for ten years and test have been made to see if he really did stay awake One of these sleep tests was made recently in Philadelphia in the office of J D Y Pollock Dr Pollock gives the following cccouut of his experience with Herpin When Herplne first came to me for treatment I did not credit his story about remaining awake all night To satisfy myself I proposed a week for a test One doctor watched him by day and myself at night Noth ing resulted from this test His pulse kept normal He lost nothing in weight and was never nervous I wanted to give his case to the public at the time he would not consent He has with drawn hisobjections now hence this statement As a general prospection the doctor says that fourteen days of sleep lessness usually resuts in insanity Herplns mental faculties are equally moral as his physical organs and sensesThe case recalls the statement accredited to Thomas A Edison nome years ago that sleep is a bad habit handed down from the ages in which candles or artificial illumination ot any kind were unknown According to Edisons theory men will gradual accustom themselves to few hours of sleep and perhaps in the later stages of evolution live the whole of their allotted time in weakfulness Safeguard the Children Notwithstanding all that is done by boards of health and charitable in clined persons the death rate

of the tribulations of a Congresman from the West out for reelection whose wife craved social honors It appears that the statesman referred to was a man of very plain habits little given to the frivolities of the smart set but in some way his spouse managed to convince him that his reelection de pended in a large measure upon his taking a more prominent part in so ciety So the Westerner energet ically set about to meet his wifes views But it went hard with him and finally he despaired ot ever be coming anything like a society man IIOne day said Mr Cannon to a New York Times manIIhe came to me in great distress Ill be hanged if Im not getting sick of it said he The social game has got me goln good for sure But what makes me mad is that I should be trying to make good a bluff like this when I havent mastered one of the fundamental ideas of the scheme And what is that funda mental idea I asked Simply this replied the candidate for re elec tion the fundamental idea in order to be a society man is as I figure it out to be able to talk while you eat Now its absolutely ridiculous in a man like me trying to make anyone believe he is a society man When I balk I have to stop eating and when I eat I have to stop talking Its no use he added dejectedly Ill never make a society man MnS CECELIA STOWC Orator Kutro N lt Club 17G Warren Avenue CIIICAUU lu Oct 22 1902 For nearly four

Interesting Discussion Caused by Pronouncements of Lexing ton Educator The questoln ol luntriage is becom lug a burning one in late years There is a tendency among to bache lerhood club life and complete iso lation from all mntrimonal enthrall mentSuch was not the case a century ago especially in the West It was nip and tuck between cupid and our pioneer fathers as to which could bring down the most game Matrimony was se rlously considered just as soon as the boys could coax out their heard by the application of grapevine juice to their chins And the little girls just like their young of today com menced talking about getting mar ried and practical housekeeping in one corner of the yard with broken bits of china The resnlts was that early marriages were almost univer salBetween fourteen and twenty and often earlier took place nearly all the marriages in the West The result was large famlles and the increase in population was rapid People lived plainly and simply worked hard and were thus enabled to support large familiesBut conditions have large ly changed Through various intlu ences the domestic affairs ol society have also been more or less changed At first there was a noticeable increase of bachelors but still the charms ol the fair sex were sufficiently powerful to sequestrate a husband for nearly every girl But the tendency to bath elorhooi and club life grew stronger each year and into the equation was then projected the modern movement in favor of equal rights and female emproyement in all avenues of bust ness in stores and clerkship According to an eminent authority who recently discussed the subject in I the press this latter movement of j millions of women into the commercial establishment of the country ren j dered worse the matrimonal problem Said he In the first placeevery woman tak ing a position in commercial pursuits i displaced a man and nearly always I at a half or twothirds the wages that he had received The men thus dis I placed had to hunt other pursuits or I emigrate His ability to marry and I rear a family was seriously contracted or taken away He either could find I little remunarative employment at home or emigrated west or to parts where women were fewer and less employed in business ranks Now it needs no keenness of discernment for anyone to see that the young women who enter a life of clerkship or other business naturally drift into the ranks of old maidism Their chances of matrimony are thereby reduced and the men whom otherwise would marry them and make them the heads of happy homes and fami ties depart other sections where they marry other women llSo you see this thing of modern employment for women as it is term ed is working havoc with the marital success of the American people The question of marriage is always a business question The conflagra tion is practically fierce between the ages of fourteen and twenty Past twenty it begins to wane somewhat and to thirty still further cools ofl After that the aspirant if a female begins to contemplate with some de gree of composure resignation the illusive marriage that hangs above the Death Valley of simple wretched ness Philosophy andresignation succeed the glowing anticipations of other days and she dropsplacidly and resignedly into the ranks of female bachelorhood And the ranks into which she falls are rapidly inreasing for various causes to the hurt of the social tide of our national life To come back to the matter as it relates to this community and envi ronment it is called to attention by President Burris Ilnklns of Kentucky University and President Patterson of the State College Both of these educators advocate early marriages as best for the individual socially as well as mortally From long expe riepce in the management of young people they have thought much upon every question that can concern their domestic life The former said that early mar riages tend to morality and that he would advise every young man to marry as soon as he could secure em ployment that would justify him in taking the step- President Patterson was of the same Ayers You can depend on flyers Hair Vigor to

II HlxlitiKli Away down at the far endof the plantation where it borders on the rivers edge there is a little field It Is smaller than the rest because the tenant there is an old man and can not till so large a field now as he could when the measure of his strength was the mete of his will He cannot follow the plow through as long a furrow as once he could nor scatter seed with a hand so tree But he plows with greater skill a field pre pored with greater care and the seed he casts though measuring less is chosen only front the best His field is mall and his strength is failing but wisdom conies to take their place and by and by when the harvest comes and the grain is threshed and gathered in no tenant though the lustiest he be will have his bins more proudly lull nor grain that yields such living force In every field from youth to age he has tuiled with patience und with care and from the garner of each he has taken seed of the choicest Kisiln to sow in each succeeding field by methods tried and proven to be trueAnd here in the last and lead ol all no energy is wasted in vain es saysno strength consumed on weeds and tares and choking thorn for the trials were made in other fields and every vain and noxious thing j ungarnered left behind No evil germs will take root here this soil brings forth but wholesome fruits In coming days the tenant here will ntverless grow and still ol Joints And further on some younger man will take his plow and till the field No longer now with measured stride and swepiug arm will he sow the generous ground with earths imper ial gialu j but from the treasury of a pure heart and a winnowedexper ience he will be ever casting forth streams of wisdom and of counsel that shall make ol every toiler in every field a better and more productive man And so it may com to pass that the grain through him to otheis shall far outweigh his own creative lossNo more do chilling words of stern command escape those guarded lips but jewels dropped from wisdoms store allurethe plowmen on The eloquence of those peaceful callous hands is not in action now but in the marks they bear of duty nobly doneAnd so at the close of day as he sits at his cottage door in the little field down by the waters edge and calmly locks across the silent stream waiting for the coming ot the ferry man to take him over to the oth er side who may fay that the place he fills is smaller now than once it was or the good he does of less im port Surely the dignity of age lies not In careless ease but in the placid do Ing of what it can by word Ifnot by deed in its own allotted field And he who spends his latter days in aim less blank repose has ceased to build upon the edifice of life just where the jutting cornice should have given to the bare and lifeless

9w I r RATE BONNET 1 H ROMANCE Or A PIRATES DAVGHTEA lBy FRANK R STOCKTON JCopyright IW1 bJ V Apploton Co Now York CHAPTER XXXIII THE TIDE DECIDES T was now September ii and the weather was beautiful on the North Carolina coast Capt Thomas late Bonnet of the Royal James late Revenge had always enjoyed cool nights snd Invigorating morning air and therefore It was that he said to his faithful servitor Ben Greenway when first he stepped out upon the deck as his vessel lay comfortably anchored In j a little cove In the Cape Fear river that he did not remember ever having been In a more pleasant harbor This welltried pirate captainStede Bonnet as we shall call him notwith standing his assumption of another namewas In a genial mood as he drank In the morning air From his point of view he had a right to be genial he had a right to be pleased with the scenery and the air he had a right to swear at the Scotch man and to ask him why he did not put on a merrier visage on such a sparkling morning for since he had first started out as Capt Thomas of the Royal James he had been a most successful pirate He had sailed up the Virginia coast he had burned he had sunk he had robbed he had slain he had gone up the Delaware bay and the people In ships and the people on the coasts trembled even when they heard that his black Hag had been sightedNo could now say that the for mer captain of the Revenge was not an accomplished and seasoned desperado Even the great Blackboard would not have cared to give him nicknames nor dared to play his blithesome tricks upon him he was now no more Capt Nightcap to any man His crew of hairy rufllans had learned to under stand that he knew what he wanted and more than that he knew how to order It done They listened to his groat oaths aud they respected him This powerful pirate now commanded a small fleet for in the cove where lay his flagship also lay two goodsized sloops manned by their own crews which he had captured in Delaware bay and had brought down with him to this quiet spot a few miles up the Cape Fear river where now he was repairing his own ship which had had a hard time of it since sho had again come into his hands For many a long day the sound ot the hammer and the saw had mingled with the tang of the birds and Capt Bonnet felt that in a day or two he might again sail out upon the sea conveying his two prizes to some convenient mart while he with his good ship fre honed and restored would go in search of more victories more booty and more blood There were great prospects before our pirate captain Perhaps he might have the grand good fortune to fall in with that lowborn devil Blackbeard who when last ho had been heard from commanded but a small vessel Tearing no attack upon this coast What a proul and glorious moment it would be when a broadside and an other and another should be poured in upon his little craft from the long guns of the Royal James Bonnet was still standing reflecting with bright eyes upon this dazzling future and wondering what would DO the best way of letting the dastardly Blackboard know whose guns they were which had sunk his ship when a boat was son coming around the head land This was one of his own boats which had been posted as a sentinel and which now brought the news that two vessels were coming in at tho mouth of the river but that as the distance was great and the night was oming on they could not decide what manner of craft they wore This information mado everybody jump on board the Royal James and the noise of the sawing and the ham mering ceased as completely as bad the songs of the birds In a few minutes that quick and able mariner Bonnet had sent three armed boats down the river to reconnoiter If the vessels- entering the river were merchantmen they should not be allowed to getaway but if they were enemies although It was difficult to unuerstand how enemies could make their appear ance in these quiet waters they must i ft attended to either by fight or flight When the three boats came back and it was late before they appeared every man upon the Royal James was crowded along her side to hear the news and oven the people on the prizes knew that something had happened and stood upon every point of vantage hoping that In some way they could find out what it was The news brought by the boats was to the effect that two vessels not sail ing as merchantmen and well armed end manned were now ashore on sand iVirs not ery far aUovo till mouth of the river Now Ijounot swore brave ly If the work upon hit vessel had been finished be would up anchor and- 8tga7 aqd salJ put tJie fi lira uaiuid4 hips whatever they were and Whatever they came for He would sail past them and take with him his two prizes he would glide out to sea with the tide and ho would laugh at them as he left them behind But the Royal James was not ready to sail The tide was now low five hours afterward when it should bo high those two ships whatever they were would float again and tho Royal James whatever her course of action should be would be cut oft from tho mouth of the river This was a greater risk than even a pirate as bold as Bon net would wish to run and so there was no sleep that night on the Royal James Tlie blows of the hammers and the sounds of the saws mado a greater noise than they had ever done before so that the night birds wero frightened and flew shrieking away Every man worked with all the energy that was In him for each hairy rascal had reason to believe that if the vessel they were on did not get out of the river before the two armed strangers should be afloat there might DO hard times ahead for them Even Ben Greenway was aroused The dell shall not get him any sooner than can be helped he said to himself and ho hammered and sawed with the rest of themOn his stout and wellarmed sloop the Henry Mr William Rhett of Charles Town South Carolina paced anxiously all night Frequently from the sandbar on which his vessel was grounded he called over to his other sloop also fast grounded giving orders and asking questions On both ves sels everybody was at work getting ready for action when the tide should riseSome weeks before the wails and complaints of a tortured seacoast had come down from the Jersey shores to South Carolina asking for help at tho only place along that coast whence help could tome A pirate named Thomas was working his way south ward spreading terror bofore him and leaving misery behind These appeals touched the hearts of the people of Charles Town already sore from the injuries and Insults Inflicted upon them by Blackbeard In those days when Bonnet sat silently on the pirate ship doing nothing and learning much There was no hesitancy for their own sake rind for the sake of their commerce this new pirate must not come to Charles Town harbor and an expedition of two vessels heavily armed and well manned and com manded by Mr William Rhett was sent northward up the coast to look for the pirate named Thomas and to destroy him and his ship Mr Rhett was not a military man nor did he belong to the navy He was a citizen capable of commanding soldiers and as such he went forth to destroy the pirate Thomas Mr Rhett met people enough along the coast who told him where he might find the pirate but he found no one to tell him how to navigate the dan gerous waters of the Cape Fear River and so it was that soon after entering that tine stream he and his consort found themselves aground Mr Rhett was quite sure that he had discovered the lair of the big game he was looking for Just before dark three boats well filled with men had appeared from up the river and they had looked so formidable that every thing had been made ready to resist an attack from them They retired but every now and then during the night when there was quiet for a few minutes there would come down the river on the wind the sound of distant hammering and the noise of saws It was after midnight before the Henry and the Sea Nymph floated free but they anchored where they were and waited for the morning Whether they would sail up the river after the pirate or whether he would come down to them daylight would show Mr Rhetts vessels had been at anchor for five hours and every man on board of them were watching and waiting when daylight appeared and showed them a tall ship under full sail rounding the distant headland up the river Now up came their anchors and their sails were set The pirate was coming Whatever the Royal James intended to do Mr Rhett had but one plan ana that was to meet the enemy as soon as possible and fight him So up sailed the Henry and up sailed the Sea Nymph and they pressed ahead so steadily to meet the Royal James that the latter vessel In carrying out what was now her obvious intention of get ting out to sea was forced shoreward where she speedily ran upon a bar Then from the vessels of Charles Town there came great shouts ot triumph which ceased when Aria the Henry and then the Sea Nymph ran upon other bars and remained sta tionaryHere was an unusual condition three ship of war all aground and about to begin battle a battle which would probably last for flvo hours If one or more of tM stationary vessels were not destroyed before that time It was soon found however that there would only bo two parties to this tight for the Sea Nymph was too far away to use her guns Tho Royal James had an advantage over her opponents since when sho slightly careened her decks were slanted away from tho enemy while tho latters were pre sented to her fire At it they went hot and heavy Bonnet and his men now know that they were engaged with commissioned war vessels and they fought for their lives Mr Rhett knew that ho was fighting Thomas the dreaded pirate of the coast and ho felt that he must de stroy him before his vessel should float again The cannon roared muskets blazed away and the combatants were near enough even to use pistols upon each other Men died blood flowed and the fight grew fiercer and fiercer Bonnet roared like an IncarnateI devil ho swore at his men he swore at the enemy he swore at his bad for tune for had he not mlsned the chan nel the game would have been in his own hands So on they fought and tho tide kept steadily rising The five hours must pass at last and the vessel which first floated would win the day The five hours did pass and the Henry floated and Bonnet swore louder and more fiercely than before He roared to his men to fire and to fight no matter whether they wero still aground or not and with many oaths he vowed that if any one of them slowed but a sign of weakening he would cut him down upon the spot But the hairy scoundrels who made up the crew of the Royal James had no Idea of lying there with their ship on Its side while two other shipsfor the SO ON THEY FOUGHT AND THKTIUK KEIT STEADILY RISING Sea Nymph was now afloat should sail around them rake their decks and shatter them to pieces So the crew consulted together despite their cap tains roars and oaths and many of them counselled surrender Their vessel was much farther inshore than the two others and no matter what happened afterward they preferred to live longer than fifteen or twenty minutes But Bonnet quailed not before fae crewIthe ship to the sky with every man In it Raising his cutlass In air he was about to bring It down upon the cowards he berated when suddenly he was seized by two powerful hands which pinned his arms behind him With a j scream of rage he turned his head and found that he was In the grasp of Ben l GreenwayLet your sword Master Bonnet said Ben It is o no UM to ye now ImIi an Ive got the harder muscles Ye anIIm not gold to let ye tumble in by accident so long as Ive got two arms left to me- l Pale haggard and writhing Stede Bonnet was disarmed and the Jolly Roger came down CHAPTER XXXIV BONNET AND GRKKNAVAY PART COMPANY T was three days afterI I jjaur l in this memorable combat enI pairswhen Mr Rhett of Charles Town sailed down the Capo Fear River with his five vessels the two with which he had entered it the pirate Royal James and tho two prizes of the latter which had waited quietly up the river to sep how matters were going to turn out On the Henry sailed the pirate Thomas now discovered to he the notorious Stede Bonnet and a very quiet and respectful man he was As has been said before Bonnet was a man able to adapt himself to circumstances There never was a more demure count inghouse clerk than was Bonnet al- I Belize there never was an humbler de- pendenti than the almost unnoticed Bonnet after he had joined Black I beards fleet before Charles Town and I there never was a more deferential and I respectful prisoner than Stedo Bonnet on board the Henry It was really touching to see how this cursing and raging pirate deported himself as a meek and uncomplaining gentleman I There was no prlaonhouae In Charles Town but Stede Bonnets wicked crew Including Ben Ore nway for his cap tors were not making any distinctions In regard to common mea taken on a pirate ihlp were clapped Into the watchhouse and a crowded and un I comfortable place It wasand put un der a heavy and military guard The authorities were however making distinctions where gentlemen of family and owners of landed estates were concerned no matter if they did happen to be taken on a pirato ship and Maj Bonnet of Barbadoes was lodged in tho provost marshals house In comfortable quarters with only two sentinels outside to make him understand he was a prisonerTho of this celebrated pirate created a sensation in Charles Town and many of the citizens were not slow to pay the unfortunate prisoner the at tentions duo to his former position In society 110 was very well satisfied with his treatment in Charles Town which city he had never before the pleasure of visiting The attentions paid to Don Green war wore not pleasing sometimes he was shoved Into one corner and some times into another He frequently had enough to eat and drink but very often this was not the cuss Bonnet never inquired after him Greenway made known tho state of his own case whenever he had a chance to do no but his complaints received no attention and he might have remained with the crow of tho Royal Jamey as long as they wore shut up In the watchhouuo had not some of tho hairy cutthroau themselves taken pity upon him and assured the guards that that man was not one of them and that they know from what they had heard him say and seen him do that there was no moro determined enemy ot piracy In all the Western continent Sot happened that after somo WlO ks of confinement Greenway was lot out otI the watchhouse and allowed to find quarters for himself The tlrst day the Scotchman was freo he went to the provosimiirshals house aud petitioned an Interview with his old master Bonnet Helgho cried the latter who was comfortably seated In a chair rending a letter And where do you corny from Ben Greeuway I had thought you were dead and burled in the Capo Fear KlvorYu did not think I ww titeularep- lied Bum when I seized yo an held- ye an kept yo from buryin you red In that same river Bonnet waved his hand No moro of that aid ho 1 was unfortunate but that his over now and things havo turned out better than any tuna could have oxpoctud Better exelalnu Ikuk I vow I know not what that means Bonnet Laughed lit was looking very WItU ho was dlmvod and worn a neat suit of clolhm Bun Greoaway said he you are now looking upon a man of high dl Unction At this moment I am ha greatest pirate on tho taco of tho earth Yes Grofruway the greatest plrato on the face of the earth I have a letter here which rtut received by the pro vostmarshal and which he gave mo to read which tells that Blackboard the first plrattf of his age is dead Therefore Ben Greenway I take his place and there is no living pirate greater than I am An ye pride yourael on that an at this moment asked Ben truly amazedThat do I said Bonnet And think of It Ben Greenway that pre sumptuous overbearing Blackboard was killed and his head brought away I sticking up on the bow of a vessel What a rare sight that must have been Ben Think of his long beard all tied up with ribbons stuck up on the boot a ship An ye are now the head deil on earth said Ben You can put It that way If you like said Bonnet but I am not so looked upon in this town I am an honored person I doubt very much it any prisoner in this country was ever treated with tho distinction that Is shown me but I dont wonder at it I have the reputation of two great pirates joined in one the pirate Bon net of the dreaded ship Revenge and the terrible Thomas of tho Royal James My man there are people In this town who have been to me and who havo said that a man so famous should not even be Imprisoned I have good reason to believe that It will not be long before pardon papers are made out tor me and that I may go my wayAn your men asked Oreonway Will they go free or will they be hung like common pirates Bonnet frowned Impatiently I dont want to hear anything about the men he said of course they will be hung What could be dome with them If they were not hunt But It is en tirely different with me I am a most respectable person and now that I am willing to resign my piratical career having won in it all the glory that can come to one man that respectability must be considered Weel weel said the Scotchman an when It comes that reapectabeellty is better for a mans soul an body than righteousness then I am no Ot ooua seller for ye Master Boonet and ha took his leave The next morning when Ben Green way left his lodging ho found the town in an uproar The pirate Bonnet had bribed hIs sentinels and with some others had escaped Bon stood still and stamped his foot Suoa infuay such perfidy to the authorities who had treated him so well the Scotchman could not at first imagine but when tho truth bocame plain to him his face glowed his

Day The following very appropriate and expressive poem WHS r cited by Miss Belva McCormick the batitllnl and accomplished daughter ol B F McCormick at thedecorationday service at No Creek May 31 this year Strong men fast asleep With coverles wrought of clay Do soft dreams over you creep Of friends who are here today Do you know 0 men low lying In the hard and chilly bed That we the slowly dying Are giving a day to the dtad Doyou know that sighs for your deaths Across our heartstrings play Een for the last hint breaths Of the sweetlipped month of May When you fell at dutys call Your fame it glittered high As leaves of the somber fall Grew brighter though they die Men of the silent bands Men of the halftold days Lift up your specter hands And take our hearts bouqutes Women whose rich graves deck The work of strifes red spade Shining wreck of the wreck This tempest of war has made You whose sweet pure love Round every sufierlng twined Whose hearts like the sky above Bent oer all human kind Who walked all through hospital streets Twilit white abodes of pain Counting the last heartbeats Of men who were slowly slain andIgracious Whenever your light feet trod That ever step seemed precious As if it were that of God Whose eyes so divinely beamedIWhose touch was so tender and true That the dying sildier dreamed Of tne purest love he knew 0 martyrs of more than duty Sweethearted womanbravesI 7Did you think in this days sad beauty That we could forget your graves Men who fell at a loss Who died neath failures frawn Who carried strifes red cross And gained not victorys crownfWhose long fight was so brave That it won our sad applause Who sleeps in a heroe grave Though clutched by the corpse of a causehSleep sweet with no misgiving- Be bitter memories fed That we your foes while living Can be your foes when dead Your fault shall not een be spoken You paid for it on the pall The shroud is forgiveness token And death makes saints of allsMen of the darkhued racetWhose freedom meant to dietWho lie with painwrought face Upturned to the peaceful sky Whose day of jubilee So many years oerdue Camebut only to ba- A day of death to you Men who died in sight Of the longsought promised land IiAsBoys whose glossy hairtGrows gray In the age gravebWho lie so humble there Because you were so strong and brave You whose lives cold set Likea winter sun Illtimid Whose hearts ran down ere yet The moon of yourllves had chimed Do you know your fathers arenear The wrecks of their pride to meet Do you know your father are near To throw their hearts at your feet Do you know tHe maiden hovers Ore you with bended knee Dreaming what royal lovers Such lovers as you would beflRuins of youthful graces Strong buds crushed In the spring Lift up your phantom faces And see the flowers we bring I Sleep well 0 sadbrowed city Whatever may betide Not under a nations pltrIfBut mid a nations pride The vines that round you clamber Brightest shall be and best Your
