The bright clear sky overhead:

the dlolre mountain, hairier ouoiir

of the melodies of summer song

wagons of the luniU-rnien Massing

the warming July suu far alsiveon
his lofty throne looking hither
through boughs of holly and twigs
of cedar such is the scene around
and above a summer pilgrim ou
the Graveyard Hill.
It is not much of a hill, to lie
sure. Perhaps ouly hixty or seven
ty feet it rises alsive the level of
the river two hundred yards away:
in fact, it is so humble that you
could nee it from only three or four
caks iu the immediate vicinity.
Its nil dirt is infused with white
flints, like raisins iu a cuke. 1 In
cleared spair allotted to it ou the
edge of the forest is an uneven
square, H-rhaps twenty live yards
to the side. There is a rather steep
incline southward aud eastward.
A half dozen decaying stumps
stand among close-cropped broom
sedge ami mark the rcinanls of a
by gone woodland civilization. Ten
holly trees, three young cedars, a
decrepit persimmon, a vigorous
young white pine, a knotty black
gum, a scrawny dogwood, ami a
stately poplar still send their roots
into the Mi lily sloc and spread
ilsive it their shady foliage.
Nor is the Graveyard Hill Un
resting place of many departed:
fewer than twenty red mounds are
here. Only nine of them are
marked with enduring marble ami
these are simply slabs; the others
lit memorialized by uniuscriU-d
head ami foot stones gathered by
triendly hands ami set uuchlseled
iu their place. There are but three
little zig.ag rows of dead that on
the brow of the slope eastward
being occupied by colored M'ople,
dating mainly from ante Irellmn
days. Ami here in the other graves
lie chiefly the ineiiiliers of the one
family clearing and controlling
these lien's. It is just a family
graveyard away buck in the coun
try; that is all.
And yet to me it is more than
llcllfvicw in our county towu of
Lenoir, or Oik wood in our State
capital at Kaleigh. More, not Ire

sloiie many a long day from the
sweaty fields la-low, or Is-ciiuse the

times by it to their pasture, or be
cause iu the woods ulsiut it the
siuirrcls were hunted in the rosy
pitst, or Is-cause in the hollow by it
grew some ot the most luscious
peaches that ever rejoiced a palate.
Is It h! range that here I feel a surge
of pulse ami moisture of eye uufelt
la-fore the statue of Yance, the
grave of Ice, or thetombof Wash
ington! How is it that historic
mausoleums dwindle iu comparison
with these plain slalis how that
simple country graveyard rises
mountain high almve the enchant
ing city cemetery with its splendid
shafts, grassy plots, shaded walks
and aristocratic dead!
Mainly, I think, because here is
au inlant s grave, and just above it
is the grave of a man, and next to
that a grave that is yet to Is- made.
It was years and years ago.

hand iu hand, entered ami left their

till their father came anil told them
iu the slow, solemn, nevei to Is
forgotten words, "There's a little
dead baby at the house!"
It was as if sunlieauis had been
changed into lightnings and bird

the morning light he saw, then
closed his eyes forever; his spirit

very large black snake pursued by
a rabbit coming into the yard. The
