The Thinning Hanks of the Soldiers
of tho Last War.
This inunenso crowd that came to sne the
old veterans inarch down Murray hill, with
their old Lattlc-flags tattrod and torn and
ituined and bleuched, did not belong on Fifth
iveiiue at alL Tho inhabitanU 4t thexo
hou.se looked m from out their acked wln
Jows, and let tliw vast throng clamber uiion
Lheir titer, banisters, gates, railings, every
where, anywhere they could climb or cling.
A-iid such iiatient untiring, such silent respect,
inch n-gard, reverence for the old and thin
ned out ranks could only be found among
peoplo of culture and thought. Therefore let
us coiicodo that the immense thousands that
aiako up New York on either side of Fifth
avemio is a very suix-rior class of people.
Three years ago I saw the same parade.
Tho crowd was not so groat then. New York
has suddenly became very jiopulous. Never
until I saw this live miles of solid humanity
2 id I feel how very itfu-ketl and full this city
has liocbmo. And I saw this jiarade t-.vo
years ago also. The crowd even then was not
jo overpowering in numbers. And the
joltliers, iiarticularly the veteran zouaves,
were a gieat dual more numerous,
fa-st year tho crowd was greatly aug
mented, but tho veteran zouaves were
Inn still. This 3'ear, as I moved on
up MuiTny hill, meeting the veterans of war
with their tattered battle-flags and their tro
phies of twenty years ago, I saw my zouaves
marching down tho hill toward me. Very
thin their ranks. Tho crowd increases every
year in force, in numlicrs, Ixjauty, ami good
bii'.iug, but the old, Ijattle-worn zouave
misses a comrade from his side each year;
acli 3'ear ho st'ps uot quite so supple as
when lust in line; each 3'ear his worn face
looks a littlo more tired, as if he had marched
a long way in the battle of life and longs to
ivrap himself iu his blanket and lie down to
Ali, my battered old soldier of twenty 3'ears
ngo! YYith all ni3r hatred of war and horrors
of 3'our trade of arm, when you halted there
in the hot sun, so few of 3-ou, so weak and
weary-like ami worn from tho long march,
so loaded down by tho weight of yeara well,
wlicn men applauded and mothers held up
their babies and cheered and cried and said
God bless you, why, I cheered too and said
God bless you with all my heart, and cried
riht out. the biggest baby of the lot. Yes, I
tho"."'. ;f next 3'ear, and the next, and tho
v I thought of tho time whe tho crowd
ut-uld re."' 1;kj a great sea filling the vast
"' v. '-- ji'ir7 oji cither side the avenue a
. . :.- r-1-. of people bearing each other on
tut.. . .ioui " ji-s to see tho few last survivors
of the war. Each 3-ear they will come shuf
fling down Murray hill a diminished numlier.
Each year th crowd will be larger, their
numljer loss. Till r.t last, down through tliis
trfeat surging sea of people, still holding his
old battle-Hug, trailing his i-usty gun, will
come civeping. Lent, and broken and slow,
tlie last soldier of the greatest and the saddest
war t;::;t v:;s.
Apropos of thLs )ai-ade, !"t us contemplate
with profound satisfaction, that tho border
laud between tho north and tho south, which
was rod with blood and ghastly with the dead
two decades since, was made yellow and red
with Il-j'.vers on this ikvv, and tho two sections
bound solidly together in garlands of roses.
And I want tho Army of tho Potomac to
cross that river again. I want the Army of
the 1'otomae to cross over and to open its
ranks and lake in recruite from the other
side. I urged this with all my might before
tho Army of the Potomac three years since at
their great gathering in Vermont. I am glad
they have got as far a3 Washington on their
way. And here is a fragment of some lines
TO THE ARMY OF THE TOTOMAC.
O remnant of that perished host
Rise up 1 Ilecross that ghostly shore!
Advance! Press in each proud outpost
And conquer! Conquer as before!
Aj'e, conquer! So that never mora
Maj" arm or army dare uprise
K-jneath these star-strewn bannered skies!
A"e, conquer! . 80 that cycles through
"AH earth would sooner lift high hand
To cleave Gods starry blue
Than the banner ot this land.
And conquer all with love! With hands
Outstretched as eager brothers reach
When stormy seas and trackless lands
Have long divided them, let each
Man slay his man with love. Aye, teach
The world tho art of -war; to know
That love beats down the bravest foe.
And that hate shall cease forever
. And ware forever cease,
Teach marshaled, piteous Europe
The victory of peace.
To yc.i, brave men, Peace makes appeal.
To 3'ou who know the awful woo
Of studied war, who bore the steel
Above that noblest, bravest foe
That ever full, saw lifted there
Palo boj-ish faces, touched white hands
That dropped the swrd to lift in pra3'er
And die along thj blood-roakcd lands.
Toyou Peace makes appeal for peace;
For only he who bears a scar
Can know the awful agonies
That track the trade of war.
Grim heroes of an age, the dream
Of Calvary behooves the brave
When next j-our battle banners dream
In glad reunion, let them wave
Bevond Potomac's storied stream,
fiecross and meet again the gray ;
Meet there as you met here to-day.
As June to May, blend blue to grav!
Strike hamls. and hold as honored guest
Each brave and battered hero
You last met breast to breast.
TVne men were they in that dark day
To cause the3 deemed the truth. God
Displeasure and they passed away,
Crushed in pride and penitent. The
Is tilled. The high-horn son lays bare
A broken sword with bright plowshare
He plows a sire's leveled mound!
1 Yea, the3" have liorne defeat like gods,
i And such defeat! Or wrong or rijLi
1 It takes as true a man to bear
! Defeat like that as win the fight.
Grand men, ou. too, have donned the gay;
That broader stream rolls dark before.
Your ranks grow thin; the reve-illo
Beats ever on that farther shore
Dread muffled notes none disobey.
Fill up 3'our wasting ranks with those
You knew as not unworthy foes.
Fill up, 'bout face, and so prepare
To cross together; a3'e, to die
In valor in that crossing where
Nor blue nor gray shall signify.

unusual in that section of the state an oil

Cor. Chicago Herald.
Several letters have been received from
Mr. John Donahue, who is now a resident of
Taris. Ho says: "I shall remain abroad five
3'ears, do a great deal of work, and I secretly
hoiie to make a great deal of money. Since
my arrival in this country I have seen much
of Mr. Oscar Wilde, and like him mora and
more every time I meet him. Ho has laid
aside his small clothes and silk stockings,
oid wears his hair closely cut and his clothes
made after tho English fashion plates. He
rides a great deal, is never weary of talking
about his American tour, can tell a capital
tory, and, like Buntborne, has more innocent
fun in Lim than most people will believe."

Will be quirk to
t'onsi leral le consternation w as occasioned
in The H- ral I editorial sanctum aliout 3
o'clock j isr id ly afternoon by th receipt of
the following communication, brought iu by
bv an American District telegraph boy:

Now, here was a poser, Tho usual re
course of journalistic Inquiry, the World's
Atlas and the Encycloiodia Britannic a, were
plainly not equal to the emergency. This
was a problem several degrees outside their
province. And 3-et it was admitted to in
volve some of the most vital principles of
human intercourse. Tho same question,
couched in much the same terms in every
language known to man, had provoked in
vestigation by the most adroit minds since
"days primeval." No less a personality than
the "heavenly muse" had lieen invoked to
sing of this same theme and that, too, by no
lew a genius than that of Milton. Scores of
other poets, too, remote and modern, had
wrestled with it, and it became evident that
the Herald must do something in the matter.
The society editor said he had a great many
fine theoretical ideas on the subject, but
none that were truly practical. The initials
'5. T." were interpreted as meaning "Board
of Trade," and the fact that the inquiry came
from outside sources suggested the propriety
of outside investigation. A city which had
achieved so much in material directions
might naturally lo presumed to have made
some progress in affairs of sentiment. A re
porter was dispatched to secure the opinions
of such citizens us were believed to liave had,
at least, an average experience in such mat
ters. The Hon. Tom Pa3Tie was met at the foot
of his office stairs. He grasped his large
cambric umbrella in the middle, and, remov
ing his drab stove-pipo hat, wiped his per
spiring brow with an immense silk 'kerchief.
Then he emitted a large, heat-releasing
"whew" and said: "Forty 3'ears ago I could
have told 3'ou more about this thing. I'm a
little rusty these latter 3-ears, but if you'll
just ask some of the old settlers how I used
to work it among tho girls in the early days
I think 3-ou'U get a pointer worth having. I
was very 'fly' once no doubt about that
and even now, but but well, the shadows
are a little longer grown now, 3'ou know."
The Hon. John Went worth, being an ac
knowledged old settler of the most prehis
toric type, was sought out next. He planted
his four-foot cane sturdily upon the marble
floor of the Sherman house rotunda, and,
smiling a genuine "Long John" smile from
his dizziest height, looked down on the earth
below and said:
"Yes, Hoyne was a dandy in his day; but
ho couldn't hold a candle to me in my
palmiest days. My smile always did the
business, for me. It was a killer, I tell you.
And then my figure went a long way, too; I
was always great on posing. There's nothing
like grace of movement to catch the feminine
fancy nothing like it. Now, there's my
nephew, Mose Mose couldn't mash a girl to
save his soul from perdition he's too clumsy,
"Love is a most beautiful and ennobling
pastime," said Hizzoner, the mayor. "It fires
a man's heart with the noblest and most ele
vating impulses. Why, sir but look here,
you won't put this in tho paper 'Q
"Certainly not, your honor."
"Then," said Hizzoner, "I don't mind tell
ing you that the way I make love is to look a
lady square hi the eye. If she can stare me
out, I've no use for her, but if I blind her
she's mine. If a maiden's eyelid drops before
the fervor of my eaglo glance, I take it she's
a goner overwhelmed by tho splendor of my
presence. But I don't do this any more, you
know not since I was in Em-ope."
When tho smoke cleared away, the reporter
was in United States District Attorney
Leake's office. Gen. Leake put his thumbs in
the arm-holes of his vest and several times
trailed his peacock splendors up and down
the office before the reporter's admiring gaze.
"Hum," he said, clearing his throat as if to
address the jury. "Of course you understand
that I am a man of knowledge and experi
ence. Ahem. And I know as much about
love-making as I do about law. I believe in
overwhelming a lady. I bear down upon her
with an overpowering presence, and she falls
before me as the lords of the forest bend be
fore the rushing, mighty whirlwind."
"Colonel" Sam Parker was found slowly,
calmly,' commandingly assigning guests to
their rooms at the Grand Pacific.
"Oh, now, now come now," said he, blush
ing 'this is too too but, to be candid, I
must confess, monsieur, that I am a great
and unapproachable masher. Everybody that
comes to this hotel gets stuck on me. It's my
eyes look at these, fine dark eyes, my boy
and my vest cast 3'our optics over the pic
turesque Alpine view embroidered on this
cerulean blue silk. Then take in if you can
the rich maroon polka dots on my shirt
f rent and imagine me if you can moving
tteadily and with 'nerve,' fine, dense 'nerve,'
down the main aisle of the main dining-room
I leave a crimson streak of bleeding hearts
along my path where'er I go."
"Handkerchief flirtation," said Joseph
Chesterfield Mackin, "is my forte. It is a
specialty upon which I reafly pride nryself.
It is worked on the street cars mostly. It is
an art which, I am sorry to say, is sadly neg
lected these days. But I have not forgotten
it since the da3 s of my youth. Take a fine,
large silk 'wipe,' for instance, and when a
a jaunty 3-oung miss of 18 gets into the car
jus-t take it out a little ostentatiously, you
know, just enough to let her see that you twig
her, and wipe your gold sjiectacles (at least,
that's the way I do), and then, if you catch
her eye as you leave the car, just flaunt it
over your right shoulder and let it hang
there. That means: 'Follow me,' and if she
is at all up to snuff she comes right along,
and 3'ou catch her at the next street corner,
don't you seef
"Phil" Hoyne was found holding down his
official chair in the government building.
"Ha, ha," cried he, "you've hit me right on
the crazy bone this time. Why, sir, when I
was a lad I'd only to look at a girl to set her
wild, but, alas, my friend, women are not
what they used to be. Tm told it takes a for
tune nowadays to take one of them to the
theatre. It's my opinion, however, that the
woman that will let a man kiss her could be
talked into marrying him. The way we
n:ed to test it, when I was in training, was to
hi ke her out for a moonlight walk sr a sleigh--ide.
You remember that time-honored bal
lad that began:
Get out your bran-new cutter,
And get your gal's consent.
Hitch up Dobbin, or any other critter,
And let the animal wont.
Itll fix her every time, if you're any kind
of a man."
Tlie liev. Dr. Lorlmor, as everybody know
Is always a little chary about committing
himsolf, but tho subject was too seductiie;
he could not withstand it. "You might not
think it," said he, in modest, measured tones,
"but the truth is I am very poetic in my
nature. My great soul goes out sometimes on
the wings of sentiment, and I feel as if the
hours were one grand, wild symphony of
love sa sort of universal love-song. I long to

paioy and pierce the blue-vaulted empyrean

light shone dreamily from his eyes as he con
tinued: ! Oh, but I would that all the world
were but one blissful symposium of goodness
and benevolence and love. Oh, love! What
would we do if it were jjot lor loye;'

"Oh no no I lieg tiardon, that was a
Iajwu-rh3-thianibus. I was thinking of 'the
Iattle Brown Jug.' But such love as the an
cient Greeks essyed, a lovo that refines and
purifies the soul and makes man le tter, purer,
loftier, more God-like ia his attributes, such
is the love that I dream of all tho time, wak
ing and sleeping."
"Uncle" Jo Spal.Iing, unlike Dr. Ixri
iner, is one of tho most tnJkative men in the
world. There's is srnply no getting along
with him; ho talks all the time.
"Music," said he, "is my charm. I fcing,
you know. No; didn't know I could singf
Well, I do, 3'ou'd better iVJicve, erfo'tly
lovel)'. And if I do sing at a lady once, just
once, tliat settles her. S!in hangs her harp
on the willow. Tho first thing iiex-ea-ary is to
select your lady, get an introduction to her
and find out her favorite song. After 3-011

but don't let that liothor 3-011. Just gather

don't you forget it."
Tho Hon. "Mel." Fuller comliod his long
gray siren locks with his w illowy fingers and
shrunk like a withered leaf 'way out of sight
in his office chair.
"Why," said he, with maidenly diffidence,"
"I know nothing about this subject, abso
lutely nothing, I assure 3 0U. But I have an
idea that gentleness is what wins. I would
approach my love by starlight in the park
nowhere but in the park and I would softly
sigh : 'Love thou me Estelle? If thou lovest,
then place they silken tresses upon this man
ly bosom here, put it right here, dove3', and
if she tumbled, you see, my boy, we'd have
such a matinee for the next ten minutes as

"It's all fluff and nonsense, all Ihis poetry
business," said Sam Itaymou.L "I don't be
lieve in it. Just let me have a liox at tho
opera. There's where I shine.. It's my opin
ion, too, that the way to make love is to ap
proach the subject gradually. This springin'
your affections on a woman before she's had
a chance to find out who you are is played
out. I'd call her the sweetest names I could
get out of the dictionary. I tell you, my
friend, that a little judicious taffy goes a
great way with a woman, and if I was stuck
on th' girl and wasn't a married man ni3'self,
I'd put it at her thick." .
A Mixture That. Itoesn't Mix.
Richmond (Va.) State.
"Blue and gray" mixed makes a sky-blue
color very much like tho monkey painted his
tail, and the freaks of the blue boys and the
gray lv3Ts, when they meet and mix, es
pecially when they mix, have a good deal ot
'monkey-shine" in them. The blue boys
peak the finest pieces that were ever heard
nothing to compare with them in tho "Co
lumbian Orator" or "American Speaker"
but they no sooner speak them than they for
get all about it, and go straightway to Wash
ington and find an old crippled rebel in gray
in some small office, or a rebel widow or or
phan filling some insignificant place under the
government and demand that he or she bo
turned out to make place for some "boy in
blue" who served his country well and draws
a handsome pension, which the crippled rebel
has to help pay. Plenty of good words come
from that side, but tho actions, "which
speak louder than words," are all the other
way. The thing is becoming so monotonous
that we are getting quite tired of the "blue

THE ROMANCE OF THE CARPET.
Basking in peace m the warm spring sun,
South Hill smiled upon Burlington.
The breath of May! and the da3r was fair,
And the bright notes danced iu the balmy
And the sunlight gleamed where the restless
Kissed the fragrant bloom on the apple trees.
His beardless cheek with a smile was spanned
As he stood with a carriage-whip in his hand ,
And he laughed as he dolf ed his bob-tail coat ;
And the echoing folds of the carpet smote;
And she smiled as she leaned on her busy
And she said she would tell him when to stop,
So he pounded away till the dinner-bell
Gave him a little breathing spell ;
But he sighed when the kitchen clock stru ck
And she said the carpet wasn't done.
But he lovingly put in his biggest licks,
And pounded like mad till the clock struck
And she said in a delicious kind of way,
That she guessed he could finish it up next
Then all that day and the next day, too,
The furze from the dirtless carpet flew,
And she'd give it a look at eventide,
And say, "Now beat on tho other side;"
And the new daj's came as the old da3s w-ent,
And the landlord came for his regular rent.
And the neighbors laughed at the tireless
And his face was shadowed with clouds of
Till at last, one cheerless winter day,
He kicked at the carpet and slipped away
Over the fence and down the street,
Speeding away with footsteps fleet.
And never again the morning gold
Smiled at him beating his fold on fold.
And South Hill often said, with a yawn,
" Where has the carpet martyr gonef"
Years twice twenty had corne and passed.
And the carpet swa3"ed ia the autunm blast,
For never 3'et since that spiing so fine
Had it ever been taken down fro::i the lino
Over the fence a gray-haired man
To climb, clime, clem, clum, clamb legan.
He found him a stick in tho old woodpile,
And he gathered it up with a sad, grim smila.
A flush passed over his face forlorn
As te gazed at the carpet, tattered and torn
And he hit it a most resounding whack.
Till the startled air gave his echoes back,
And out of the window a white face leaned,
And a palsied hand the pale face screened.
She knew his face: she gasped and sighed.
"A little more on the other side,"
Right down on the ground his stick h
Ani he shivered and said, "Well, I ara
An l he turned away with a heart full sore.
And he never, no never, was seen there more.
English. iirl Abroad.
American girls are much more popular
abroad than ours, and for obvious reasons.
They are more Continental in their tastes.
They live for society, dress, flirtation. . Our
young women, like their fathers and brothers,
are profoundly indifferent to continental
opinion. When Swedenburg visited Heaven
he found that the English there kept very
much to themselves. So do our country
women abroad. They have plenty of inter
ests apart from society". They botanize, they
walk, they play lawn tennis as if they meant
winning sets, not hearts. They carry ham
mers, they explore fossils, they dig np bits
of primitive man, they collect sea-,
beasts, they even study the peasants
and their patois. They regard foreign 3-oung
men as being of another species, no more
marriageable than monkeys. For all these
reasons they do not dress to please foreign
young men. They wear big-nailed boots,
hideous sunshades, and, when very Alpine
and pedestrian, seem chiefly to robe them
selves in seedy old ulsters. Sealskins and
waterproofs limit their idea of cost '.una.
They wear out their old things. Occasionally
they introduce aesthetic dresses to a foreign
population which never heard of Mr. Wilde.
It is curious to observe the horror-stricken
curiosity of a foreign "town when the fiist
peacock-bluo pair of puffed sleeves is prome
naded through tho streets. All these signs of
tho cold and insular indifference of the
British fair make her unpopular on the con
tinent. She is not thinking about love and
sentiment and fine feelings. She is taking
her pleasure manfully, ifter the nxannev of
her race. " . r
