people, she has adopted a plan by which she thinks she may
be able to retain this friendship. She has sent to the United
States, so the accounts say, fifty agents, thirty-five being wo
men, whose duty is to modify, if possible, the impression
that the Americans have obtained from magazines and news
papers, of Russian cruelties. These agents certainly have a
hard task to perform. To every non prejudiced person it
must be apparent that a great reform is needed in Russia.
The papers of Kcnnan have shown this. The Americans
have accepted these reports as true and the fifty agents will
not be able to disprove them. Hence we say that their task
will be doubly hard. Nothing short of reform will place
Russia in the high esteem of .the United States, and if she
brings about this reform', then, indeed, will she be worthy the
confidence and friendship of any nation on the globe.

Tho subject of this beautiful poem was tho only son of Mrs. E.
M. J. Cooloy aud a member ol tho class of '01. Ho died February
26, 1889. Tho poom vib writtou on tho tlrst anniversary of Ida
Only a year, sinco In sorrow unspoken,
I lookod for tho last on your beautiful faco;
Pleading in vain, that tho alienee bo btoken,
Eio they laid you to rest, In earth's cold embrace
Only a year; yot it scorns as though ages,
All ladon with sorrow, above mo bavo flown
Ab I turn back tho loaves of Memory's pages
To tho hour when wo left you In silenco, ulono.
Only a year; Oh, llarry, my darling,
Comobackto our grief Btricken hearts, this sad day;
Tell U8 what scones paet our sorrow dimmed vlnlon,
Havokopt you bo long, from our fond lovo away;
Hear, whllo I call you: como back, Oh, my darling;
Press for a momont your lips to my own ;
WhlHporoncomoro "I lovo you, my mamma"
Whllo Irovcl In joy at tho musical tone.
Only a year, O como whllo I'm calling,
Lay for a momont, your head on my breast;
Scot Omy loved one, tho tear drops are falling,
Como, let mo hush you onco moro to your rest;
Spring with hor blossoms, and summer with hoauty,
Autumn with frultago, and winter with gloom
Coming and going, yet still you are sleeping,
Unhcodtng of sunshine or storm, in the tomb.
Only a year, your comrades aro grasping
Tho honors you hoped for Oh, Harry, my boy,
So you hear the glad shout? The victors aro clasping
Tho prizes thoy'vo won. Do you Join in tholr Joy?
Still you aro sleeping, no voico breaks th silenco;
Your hand does not brush off tho fast falling tear;
Has heaven so charmed you that you havo forgotten
Tho dear ones o earth in only a year?
Nay, traher your homo is beyond all earth's sorrows,
Abovo all its triumphs, its trials and gloom,
Whero death cannot roach you and whisper "to-morrow",
Whllo pointing with Bhadowy hand to the tomb,
And somctlmo whon Death's dreaded power shall bo broken
Whoro graves aro unknown, ami wiped every tear
I shall hear tho sweet wordB that must now bo untpokou;
And never moro mourn, "It is only a year."
