Hargio is a very little girl, ao little that she cannot read the stories The Be mblinan prints for the children; hut she cnowB which colnmns they are on, and everjf week her sanny face with its great blue eyes eagerly uptamed, waits tor auntie to reM. them to her. Her home is not in this pleasant oool New England of ourg, but far away, in a noisy, dusty southern oity, where the people are more than half rebels; and where soldiers are as common as pigs and cows in Massachusetts. Of eoorye she is not afrnid of soldiers, indeed she is decidedly fond of them, and wheneirn there is a cavalry drill in front of her house, she stands on the high veranda, and waving a tiny flag, shouts 'HurrA* for the stars and stripes* until, ahe is hoarse. When she was quite a bal^, it was isupposed the reM Crenetal Bragg wolild cake the dty where she liv^, andj9ur troops under Buell were bnr^ ried away from Florence, Alabama, to protect it. The two armies ran a race, and Buell came in ahead. The day his half-surved, exhausted men mareh-ed in, every loyal penon turned out to welcome uem. Margie’s nurse took ler in her arms, and stood, just inside the front gate, while .mamma sat at the window. By aitd* by, a squad of men left the ranks, and coming on to the side walk bnuhed the outside Qf the fence on which-nurse was leaning. Marjne bent forward, and catohing a l>ig wrman by his ragged sfeev^ called out in clear baby tones, ‘ three cheers for Idncolh’s soldjOrs!’ and then the man seised her frohi nurse’s arms, held her high over his head, shouting to his comrades * hnrrah for the little'lady and they all screamed and hurrahed until the rebel neighbors, who had shut all their blinds for fear they ahonld >aee the hated soldiers pass, peeped through to see what wu the matter. A merry little bugler thought he’d surt out in; The girl I'left behind me,’ and a iat old drummer deemed- it a fine time to give some eccentric variations of his own, while mamma sat trembling for fear Margie should cry and spoil all the fun. But. she hadn’t a thought of 0 doing; instead ahe clapped,her hands, and laughed and shouted with them. er cry came when her big soldier bht her down, and marched off without Howevw, as she would say, this was great while jsgo when she was little; This summer she has been at the North, and h e ^ a great deal about soldier’ aid societies, ahout mding onions, drying fruit, and all the other things (with which our conversation and papers are so filled,) for the army. She was very lealous in her attempts at picking rar*. rants to dry; and it made os laugh to >er little, sun-bonnet bobbing up and down like a tiny white bird among the bushes. She attended to the drying of all she picked,' and we, pat them into a box by themselves, labeling them, * Margie’s cananti,’ and some day you shall hear where they went to, and bow she heard from them. Her eyes '^iK^ tehed as we read her The Bepubliean^ sto^ of the boys and gi(ls who.pidted berries and sold theit), and the only play sha had.for hw ^ for dajf» after was sendiM oie wMe to the lidds to Ina linties. W«H. after she ceMhad h e rom home, tW:«sl£enr,«eiia « n r in the child’s t^ogjhtsi ai^ I do not wonder;, for on t ^ ve|ry sam ^uare where atie lives is a liig b ri^ building, filled in its every eomer with 'aMo wonded at the front of SheraiaB’s army. Peihaps some of the .little ooes majjbe isnconr-aged to have me. ^ i , them that ip this same ikr away lioapital I h^ve and owd aiiiele# of cOiM'fort'diat Mme fitOm their own tow ^ jaad tai many cases beariiig the naMvoC their mother or older nsters. Thip hospital distressed Margie greatly, an4 she was forever to be found ^king h<ir little nose through a hole in the fence, and trying to eatablidi ixiromunication with its inmates. As soon as ever she oould per-shade mamma to go over and m what condition its patients were in, she did so, her expectant fece losing through the hole all the time she was away. lumMa was gone ever so long, and Margie be-to think she never would come, >ut at last the big heavy door sirang back, the guard raised his musket, and out came mamma; Margie was across the street to meet her like a wild orea* tore, but long before she reached her ahe saw her steps were slow and her fitoe very sad. * 0 mamma, do they want bandages, shirts, gmel, onions^ or what do they want?* . My darling, they wai^cverything, almoet;’ and mamma couldn’t help one or two tears as' she thought of the suffering she had seen. Maine’s face lost ita bright look for a moment, but being a very practical body she soon rallied, saying bravely, « _,^ndleo and little ones’ 0 « . rooad boiidesaiid ^ i i ^ oaeB.bottlea ofthe^^^m^ «hb viriieil O ta of wm and box^ of . jelly i Mxt poor ^ - Weil, mamma, 1 reckon we can help them.’ ^ Mamma ihlt little enough like smiling^ but she could not help it, when she thought'of the hundred sorely suf-foci^ g men, aod .thM .< ^ .ch ^ who was so sura' she could help them. ■ Now, mamma, the first thing is to look over all our thing^ and see what we can do without; and theo,’—she thought a minute,—* if you. are willing, sis and I, (sis is font), will take the baby's wagon, and' iii^e ealls on the neighbors, and 1 tell you we will bring it tack full of thingaibefiMC night.’ * And what shi^l yon u y to th^m, Margie? ’ ,| ‘ 1 Mhali tell them that the poor men hayen’t any clean shirts, mamma, and please will they pvesisand I«few old oaesT’ / ‘But if they say they have none to 9 ye away T* ' *6, well, then, piease give us some old cloth, or dried peaches, oiir piekles. or anything they’d. . lilu if they were sick,' ‘A n you sure you mil have oourage to askthra? ..A gm i many of them do' not like the Soldiers, and will perhaps call you 'Iktle h^gata;* ’ Why, that’e^ no. difieranofl to os. like, the; Hdi9"i eixl they will give OS something, i Icnow/ When they went into t&e house thorough aearoh bc^n, and Maij^e if she had bean mistieaa would , hare giveif away half they had,.|»ut of course mamma, interposed,, although a v ^ large hundlis was found tis the first one ioi their collection.'
