How will the Register explain
Colonel Theodore Roosevelt's re

Colonel Roosevelt of going into the

if Colonel Roosevelt ho credited with
patriotic desire to serve his country
when ha Organised a regiment and
took the offlot of colonel, why not
give Colonel liryan the same credit?
Such a comment on Colonel

the Popular Heart Of Today.
A generation ago there apnt ared In
"Vaulty Fair," with which the name
of ArtemOS Ward wis identllled, the
following poem on the civil war. It
will bear re.publicr.tiou at the present
time, despite Die fact the name of it
author is unknot ii It was entitled
"After All," and is all iUent in i's sim
plicity and the picture ol domestic
grief it presents.
The apples are ripe in the orchard,
The work of the reaper is done,
And the golden woodlands reddeu
In the blood of the dying sun.
At the cottage door the grandslie
Bits ale In his easy chair,
While the gentle wind of twilight
Plays with his silver hair.
A wnnniii kneeling beside him,
A fair young head is pressed
In the llrst wild passion of sorrow
Against his aged breast.
And far from over the distance
The warlike e hoes come
(f the w arlike blast of trumpet
And the ra' thug roll of c'ruin.
And the grandslie speaks in a whisper
"The end 0Q man can see;
Hut we give him to his country,
And we give our prayers to Thee."
Tb violets alar the meadows,
The rosebuds friuge the door,
And over the grassy orchards
The pink-w lilte blossoms pure.
Hut the gratulsire's chair is empty,
The cottage is iiark and still;
There's a nameless grave ill the battle
tlek', And a new one under the hill.
And a pallid, (earless woman
By tbe cold hearth sits alone,
And l lie old Cloefc in the corner
Tickso.i with a steady drone
From south Lane.
