Uhland lias ma le a home for himself,
first by his patriotic ballads, with which
he stirred the hoart of his countrymen
at tho beginning of the century, when
"the waves of tho Adriatic moaned
over tho lo s of Germany,” and
later on by his songs ami other poems.
Scholar, lawyer, politician and anti
quarian though ho wns, he remained
always first and foremost a man, a
poet of the people, wlmso j >y< and sor
rows he express al as no other poet has
done bofore or after h’m. As the
Deutsche Bund hau aptly says in a re
“Uhland's memory is kept alive by his
poems, which ring through Germany
like bells, and tho rich musio of which
timo has boon unable to impair. The
language in tiie rustling of tho German
forest and the mysterious souud of the
mountain streams whose whence and
whither no one knows, and which aro
only met within the infinite solitude of
the forest, have been taught
Uhland. Nobody can express
longing which is awakened
a look from some . height over
country and tiie silver linos of
rivers as Uhland's shepherd boy,
looks dow n upon all the castles,
for whose funeral, too, (ho bqj’.s in the
valley will some time bo toll! ng." In
England tiie name of the poet is chiefly
associated with liis version, in ballad
form, of tho legend of the "Luck of
Elenhall," while Longfellow’s trans
lations have familiarized the English
publio with several of his poems based
on o!d legends. The first edition of
tho poet's works was published tn 1815;
at his denth, in 1862, over thirty edi
tions had appeared; in 1875 tlm sixtieth
was published, and the denuind is
still increasing.— Dall Mall Gazette.
An Arkanifiw Author’» Experience In the
Mr. George Sabb<-rly, writing from
Chicago to n friend nt Dry Fork, says:
“My Dour Abner: You know I came
here Io see about having a book pnb-
lished, but I am sorry to say that 1
have net yot found a publisher that’s
got tho insight to recognize a good
thing. I carefully cut out all my Dry
Fork notes that wore published in the
Hickory Knob Sapling, including the
ono about Uncle Dave Pruitt being
chased through Gum Hollow by a wild
hog, and also that one giving the
facts about the row over at Borkly
meeting-house, but, Ab, do you know
that those fullers failed to seo the
point? Tho last one I called on
laughed at me. ’Why, my dear sir,’
said ho, 'the happenings at Dry Fork
are not of interest to people who live
away from there.’ I didn’t hit him.
Ab; I didn’t touch him, but I stepped
back and gave him ,s look that went
clenn through him and struck the
wall. He didn’t mind it, though.
Thon I turned over a few pages and
showed him the following side-splitter

after I helpod you clean out your

they had it up and down, over logs
and through the bushes, but the des
tiny of battle seem 'd to hang in the
dog’s favor until the 'coon nailed him
by the foot and then he squnwled in
that, the hour of his groat tribulation.
Since then, old Polo has not been so
lively by a blamed sight.’ Well, sir, it
didn't faze him, and I bundled up my
stuff and got out I had Always heard
