nt household word became: All felt behind the singer stood A sweet and gracious womanhood. Her life was earnest work, not play; Her tired feet climbed a weary way; And even through her lightest strain We heard an undertone of pain. Unseen of her her fair fame grew, The good she did she rarely knew, Unguessed of her in life the love That rained its tears her grave above. When last I saw her, full of peace, She waited for her great release; And that old friend so sage and bland, Our later Franklin, held her hand. For all that patriot bosoms stirs Had moved that woman's heart of hers, And men who toiled in storm and sun Found her their meet companion. Our converse, from her suffering bed To healthful themes of life she led: The out-door world of bud and bloom And light and sweetness filled her room. Yet evermore an underthought Of loss to come within us wrought, And all the while we felt the strain Of the strong will that conquered pain. God giveth quietness at last! The common wa

n Britain. The tradition that the guilty wife of King Arthur fled thither for protection forms one of the finest passages in Tennyson's Idyls of the King. O storied vale of Merrimac Rejoice through all thy shade and shine, And from his century's sleep call back A brave and honored son of thine. Unveil his effigy between The living and the dead to-day; The fathers of the Old Thirteen Shall witness bear as spirits may. Unseen, unheard, his gray compeers The shades of Lee and Jefferson, Wise Franklin reverend with his years And Carroll, lord of Carrollton! Be thine henceforth a pride of place Beyond thy namesake's over-sea, Where scarce a stone is left to trace The Holy House of Amesbury. A prouder memory lingers round The birthplace of thy true man here Than that which haunts the refuge found By Arthur's mythic Guinevere. The plain deal table where he sat And signed a nation's title-deed Is dearer now to fame than that Which bore the scroll of Runnymedee Long as, on Freedom's n

, His winter-wearied heart and brain. Sing soft and low, thou tropic bird, From out the fragrant, flowery tree,— The ear that hears thee now has heard The ice-break of the winter sea. Through his long watch of awful night, He saw the Bear in Northern skies; Now, to the Southern Cross of light He lifts in hope his weary eyes. Prayers from the hearts that watched in fear, When the dark North no answer gave, Rise, trembling, to the Father's ear, That still His love may help and save. Lady Franklin. fold thy hands, thy work is over; Cool thy watching eyes with tears; Let thy poor heart, over-wearied, Rest alike from hopes and fears,— Hopes, that saw with sleepless vision One sad picture fading slow; Fears, that followed, vague and nameless, Lifting back the veils of snow. For thy brave one, for thy lost one, Truest heart of woman, weep! Owning still the love that granted Unto thy beloved sleep. Not for him that hour of terror When, the long ice-battle o'er, In the sunless day h
