our steamer sped up or down the river
-crowded with blue clad men. The con

but the governor, while seeming to fall In
with this idea, was secretly helping the

Here is u good Illustration of thu fact
that the lioys didn't put off their kind
ly human nature when they put on Uncle
Sam's warlike blue:
One evening toward tho closu of thu war.
whllo Union soldiers lay In camp on a hill
sldu near thu Staunton river, Virginia, the
cry of "Haiti who goes there?" from a ii-n
Unci startled every lounger to his feet, anil
several of thu moru curious ran to the
guard lino to find out what thu trouble
was. A minute later all knew that tlie

conducted by two soldiers wiio bad told the
guuid to pass her In, and who looked ns
proud us If they were escorting u queen.
The wholu regiment gathered including
the colonel himself to look at thu cbil 1
and hear her tell her story. A very shoii
story It was, scarcely a paragraph, but
there was matter enough in it for u full
chapter. Shu lived near by with her father,
who was sick and poor, iiiul they weru

northerners, she said, and "Union folks."
Her mother was dead and tier brother had
been killed whllo lighting In the Federal
iirmy. She "wanted to give something,"
nnd when tho Union soldiers came she
thought she would bring her pet kitten
nnd present It to the colonel.
The colonel took the little girl in his
nrms and kissed her, nnd the kitten too,
nnd said he was not a bit ashamed of his
weakness. He nccepted the kitteii with
thanks, nnd its innocent donor was gal
lantly waited on to her humble home,
loaded with generous contributions.
The white kitten was adopted by tho
regiment, but considered the property nnd
special pet of the colonel, and when the
war was over ho took it home with him.
Like the white lamb that staid and fed
with tho victors lifter thu buttle of Antte
tarn, thut little creature, during Its short
but stirring army life, was a daily Inspira

After Hie llattle.
Another time when the old songs used to
huvu a peculiarly touching effect was at
night after a finished battle. As twilight
died out and darkness camu on, some ono
ot our boys would begin to slug ono ot thu
Union songs. His mates would second
him, and soon from away off across the
line ot camp fires and pickets, whero we
knew thu enemy were, wu would hnvu
"Dixey" or some other Confederate song
wafted back to us on thu breeze. Song af
ter song would be sent over the air Iu this
manner from one contending camp to the
other, but presently it would ta all broken
