'Rock of Ages, cleft for rue,"
Thoughtlessly the maiden snug:
Fell the words unconsoionsly.
From her girlish, gleeful tongue;
Sang as little children sing:
Sang as .siug the; birds in June:
Fell the words like light lea vis down
On the current of the tune "
Rock of Ages, cleft forme,
Let m: hide myself in Thee."
"Let nuflude myself in Thee," j
Felt her soul no need to hide:
Sweet the song as song could be
And she had no thought beside;
AH the wordunhcedingly
Fell from lips untouched by care,
Dreaming not they each miht bo
On some other lips a prayer
"Hock of Ages, cleft forme
Let me hide myself in Thee." '
"Rock of Ages, cleft for ne,"
'Twas a woman sung them now,
Pleadingly and prayerfully;
Ev'ry word her heart did know.
Rose the song as storm-tossed bird
Beats wit a weary wing the air
Ev'ry note with sorrow stirred,
Ev'ry syllable a prayer
"Rock of Ages, cleft forme,
Let me hide myself in Thee."
"Rock of Ages, cleft for me," -
Lips grown aged sung the hymn
Trustingly ami tenderly;
Voice grown weak, ami eyes grown dim,
Let me hide myself in Thee."
Trembling tho tha voice and low.
Ran the sweet strain peacefully,
Like a river in its llow,
Sung as only they can sing
Who life's thorny paths have passed;
Sung as only they can sing,
Who behold the promised rest -
"Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee."
"Rock of Ages, cleft for me,"
Sung above a colli n lid;
Underneath, all restfully,
All life's joys and sorrows hid.
Nevermore, O storm-tossed soul,
Nevermore from wind or tide,
Nevermore from billows roll.
Wilt thou need thyself to hide.
Could the sightless, sunken eyes,
Closed beneath the soft gray hair.
Could the mute and stiffened lips
Move again in pleading prayer.
Still, aye, still the wv;s would be,
"Let me hide nivself in Thee."
A CONFEDERATE STORY.
At a recent political gathering in
Tuscumbia, Ala., General Culkn A.
Uattle related the following touching
story iii the cme of his speecli:
During the winter of 18lu-(U it,
was my fortune to he President of
one of the courts-martial in the army
of Northern Yirginla. Ono bleak
December morning, while the snow
covered the ground and winds howl
ed around our camp, I left my bi
vouac tiro to attend tho session of
the court. Winding or miles along
the certain paths, I at length arrived
at the court ground at Hound Oak
Church. Day after day it hail been
our duty to try the gallant soldiers,
of that army, charged with violations
of military law; but never had I on
any previous occasion been greeted
by such anxious spectators as on
that morning awaited the opening of
the court. Case after cae vas dis
posed of, and at length the case of
"The Confedeate States r. Edward
Cooper" was called charge deser
tion. A few murmurs arose sponta
neously Trom tho battle-scarred spec
tators, as a j-oung artillery-man rose
from the prisoners' bench, and, in
response to the question, "Guilty.or
not guilty?" answered "Not guilty."
The Judge Advocate was proceed
ing to open tho prosecution, when
the court, observing that the prison
er was unattended byfcounsel, inter
posed and inquired of the accused,
"Who is your counsel?" He re
plied. "I have no counsel." Sup
posing that it was his purpose to
represent himself before the court,
the Judge Advocate was instructed
to proceed. Every charge and spec
ification against tho prisoner was
sustained. The prisoner was then
told to introduce his witnesses. He
replied. "I have no witnessesAs
tonished at the calmness with which
he seemed to be submitting to what
he regarded as -inevitable fate, I
said to him, "Have 3 0U no defense?
Is it possible that you abandoned
your comrades and deserted your
colors in the presence of the enemy
without any reason?" He replied,
"There was a reason, but it would
not avail me before a military court."
I said, "Perhaps you aro mistaken;
you are charged with the highest
crime known to militarv law, and it
' is your iluty to make known the
; causes that influenced your actions."
' For the first time his manly form
trembled, and his blue eyes swam in
tears. Approaching the president
. - K . I . . . . . . 1 . A T Til
vi me; tuiin j. rtreiiieii n leiitT,
saying as he did so, "There General,
is what did it." I opened the letter,
and in a moment my eyes filled with
j tears. It was passed from one to
! another of tho court until all had
j seen it, and those stern warriors who
had passed with Stonewall Jackson
I through a hundred battles wept like
1 little children. Soon as I stifHcient-
! ly recovered my self-possession, I
j read the letter as the defense of the
j prisoner. It was in these words:
i My lh-ar ftlu-arl:l have always
: been proud of you, and since your
! connection with the Confederate Ar-
my I have been prouder of you than
! ever before. I would not have you
! doanvthing wrong for tho world ;but
before "God, Edward, unless you
come homo we must die! Last night
; I was aroused by little Eddie's cry
! ing. I called and hesaid :-"Oh, mam
j ma, I'm so hungry!" And Lucy, Ed -I
ward, vour thirling Liiicy, she never
complains, iut sue is growing nun
ner and thinner evcrv dav. And bc-
1 fore God, Edward, unless you come
homo we must die. Yoi u M.i:v.
' Turning to the xtioner, I. asked:
"What did vou do when vou re
ccived this letter?" Ife replied: "I,
maoe application lor lunougn, ami
it was rejected ; again I made ap-
plication, and it was rejected ;a third
i i i r r 1 t -I.
time I made application,
was rejected, and that
as I wandered backward and
. forward in tho camp, thinkm
inv home, wi'h tho mild eyes
; Eucy looking up to me, and the
; burning words of Mary .linking in
.my brain, I was no longer the Con
federate soldier but 1 was the father
of Eucy and the husband of Mary,
and I would have passed those lines
if every gun i:i the battery had tired
upon me. I went to my home. Mary
ran out to meet me, he r angel arms
embraced me; and she whispered
'O! Edward, I am so happy! I am fuj
triad vou got vour furlough! She
i must have felt me shudder, for she
; turned pale as death, and catching
her breath at eve ry word, she said,
; nave vou come wunout vour iur-i
lough? O! Edward, Juhvard, go
back! go back! Let me and mv
! children go down together to the
grave, but O, for heaven's sake, save
! the honor of our name!' And here I
! am, gentlemen, not brought here by
, military power, but in obedience to
I tho command of Mary, to abide the
tencc of vour court.
Eveiy ofliccr of that court-martial
felt the force e)f the prisoner's words.

I raised my hat. Once more a Con

the ranks of tho enemy, anel the he-
