THE SOLDIER'S WIFE.
"Oh! weep not, weep not, mother,
And dry your tears, fond wife,
Your sorrow is not anguish,
You have not lost a life;
You, with a proud, sweet sadness,
In all the after-days,
The villains who tried to throw railroad trains from the track — who descended upon remote inland villages to pillage, burn, and kill — who would have burned down museums and hotels full of innocent women and children — who bought plague-tainted rags to disseminate promiscuous death — are surely not too virtuous to poison wells or to murder with the pistol or knife. And the men who did these things bore the commissions and pleaded the authority of Jefferson Davis and his Confederates. Did Davi

THE GREAT CATHEDRAL WINDOW.
AN OLD LEGEND.
The great west window was framed and done;
How proud was its painter, Father John!
The watchings by night at the furnace-door,
The long days' ponderings, all were o'er;
The fires were quenched, and the fluxes and paints,
The tracings of monarchs, and prophets, and saints,
Were rolled and labeled, and hid away,
And life for Friar John was all holiday;
His brushes were thrown in the nettly croft,
And so was the pallet he'd used so
Arthur's arm, and laying one soft ungloved hand on mine, she took it and murmured,
"So you won't speak to me! Did you only like me, then, while I could be patronized as the poor governess?"
I held her hand, I gazed down into her eyes — saucy, mirthful eyes; was I cruel to quench their light in the shadow of my own sorrow? I only answered, "I shall be happy to make your acquaintance again, madam, in any character you may please to assume." So Arthur introduced us.

Before the beginning of years
There came to the making of man
Time, with a gift of tears;
Grief, with a glass that ran;
Pleasure, with pain for leaven;
Summer, with flowers that fell;
Remembrance fallen from heaven,
And madness risen from hell;
Strength without hands to smite;
Love that endures for a breath;
Night, the shadow of light,
And life the shadow of death.
And the high gods took in hand
Fire, and the falling of tears,
And a measure of sliding
and a bottle under his arm, and was followed by a stalwart peasant woman, laden with plates and glasses.
"The evening is so warm," said he, "that I thought our cousin would prefer to stay here; so Kettli and I have brought the supper with us."
"Nothing could please me better," replied Mr. Trefalden. "By-the-way, Saxon, I must compliment you on your Greek. Theocritus is an old friend of mine, and you read him remarkably well."

PRESIDENT LINCOLN'S FORMER HOME AT SPRINGFIELD, ILLINOIS.
PRESIDENT LINCOLN'S OLD HOME.
President Lincoln's remains have been tenderly laid to rest at Springfield, his former home. The route, which little more than four years ago the then newly-elected President took from Springfield to Washington, has been retraced, under circumstances how different! Different as regards the terrible national drama of the last four years by what degrees of joy! Different as regards the personal drama i

course from Springfield to the Capital in 1861. Then all was uncertainty. But now, as they bore Lincoln back to his rest, all was triumphant. Somehow they felt that this man had been linked in his life and his death inseparably with the national salvation that had been accomplished. It was fitting then, that, while they draped their streets with black, they should at the same time rear abo
