THE EVENING STAR. ? ? VET." Yet." What doe* it mean Upon yon soldier's faded coat P Hi* han4 is bard and rongh and brown, I see a scar a one hid throat. Hi* aye* seem loot id* far off still. His close chut month is grim. *' Mother what meant that little word, Upon a *leete bo worn and dim*" It mean*, my child, that rugged, hand Ha* wielded mu*ket lone and Well; Ha* lent the iron thunder home. And tuned the sen* of screeching shell. It mean*?that steady. slaanch and true He fairly won that ragged ecar, H bile yon and I sat safe at home, A nd read the news aboat the war. What wonder if the mouth is grim, That said so many awift ''good bye's;'' Life's common words are idle bregth, Beside th. sw earnest battle cries. What wond er if tne gate is dim. And yonder stranger lingers yet? Tfee eye that ban looked straight at Death. Hia image iray not soon forget. And this ia what it means, to earn The title "veteran," on a coat: Tomarch through Hood and field, or lie W?re rebel rifle* sweep the moat; To serve the guns in rifle pits; To sleep beneath the silent sky; To dream of home and wake to war; To see acomrade drop and die. To bear and heed the fearful song,. Which whistling Minnie bullets sing; To faint and fall, and longing lie For one cold draught from rocky spring; And this my child, is what it ?ays. That little word of letters three; Uo clasp bis hand and give him thanks. For battles fought for you and me. ?A. Y. Ledger. A Singular Exhibition in London. A new exhibition in London, called the "An hropoglossos," is thus described by the Times. ? The room in St. James's Hall, long enlivened i y Christy's Minstrels is now devoted to a ingular exhibition, bearing for its title the (dd word, Anthropoglossos. Entering the com the spectator finds "his attention attract ed by a large waxen head, bearing no slight resemblance to the late M. Jullien, with some, thisg like a silver fhnnel stack into Its month. This head does not stand on a pedestal, but is sustained by gilded chains suspended from the ceiling. At the first glance it mlgbt be taken for a very idealized "A untSilly," but on closer Inspection the spectator will perceive below the bast a small glass case containing some sort of mechanical apparatus. To an aperture in this case the exhibitor applies a key, and after a winding-up process has been duly ac complished, a pair of little bellows are seen to work, and the sound of a human voice, sing, ing the musle and words of a song, quite as dis tinctly as any flesh and blood vocalists, issues lrom the mouth of the head. Six songs, termi nating with ??God save the Clueen," consti tute the entire entertainment. Two other heads, likewise with funnels in their mouths, may be observed at the back of the room, but these are not yet bronght into active operation. When their musical education is complete we may possibly be favored with duets and trios. "Ii we remember right it was Alexander the Great who played the lyre with such wonder ful skill as to elicit from his father the remark that the performance was too good for the future king. In the same manner, notwith standing the assurance that the loss of "Polly Perkins " and the fascination of the "dark girl drossed in blue," are celebrated "by means of the nicest %nd most exquisitely constructed mechanism," we cannot help remarking that the artieulation is almost too unexceptionable for a machine. There is nothing wooden or metallic, or squeaky or hitchy, in the whole performance, but the lyric effusions go off as glibly as though some artist of the Music Halls were singing them through one of those pipes that form a communication between the princi pal's parlor and the clerk's room In a mer chant's counting-house. Hence we fear wick ed Pyrrhonists will arise who will doubt the connection between the winding-up of the machine and the utterance of the melodies. Of course they will be altogether wrong, but the presence of a voice decidedly human would have incalculably Increased the facil ity of refuting them. ?? However, the skeptic and the believer will both agree that the exhibition is extremely in genious. The bead is not large enough to con tain any human performer, nor does it comma nicate in any visible manner with any remote sonrce of sound. There it hangs in chains, in a state of defiant insulation, and if you will not believe that its voice proceeds from the little bellows, it ch allenges you to point out an other origin. ?'To most persons of the present generation the " Anthropoglossos" will, we think, be an absolute novelty, but the old among us will, perhaps, recollect that at a time when tne name of Madame Tussaud was unknown in London there was, on the southern side of Fleet street, a collection of wax figures, osten sibly belonging to one Mrs. Salmon. In one of the rooms of the edifice that contained this collection was the so-called "Invisible Girl;" a small suspended box, from which is sued a voice that answered questions and sang songs. Whether the old " Invisible Girl" was similar in principle to the "Anthropoglossos" we cannotsay." ?7* An English mechanic has invented a cooking range with some new features. The upper bar of the lire-grate is increased in breadth, and placed in an angnlar position, so as to direct the air downwards upon the fire, thereby producing more perfect combustion. The increased heat, instead of being carried up the fines or chimney, which is the case where there is a close door in front of the fire, is thrown ontwards, by which simple ar rangement a strong roasting fire is obtained, and at the Fame time the oven, boiler, and hob-plate are heated in a superior manner. A 10-inch fire is Baid to be capable of roasting a joint of meat, and a 12-inch fire of roasting two joints. It is also found that the fire bars last longer than usual, one or two sets, which have been In constant use for upwards of five years, being still almost as perfect as when first applied The effects produced by this very simple change of form are certainly worth in quiring Into. . Female Compositors.?1The Council Bluffs Konpareil announces that having been desert ed by the printer boys, who have "gone to the wars," It nas "enlisted" about half a dozen of the best looking girls in town, and is now ?'training up" a corps of compositors not sub ject to the draft. The jubilant editor adds: Come on, now, with your "calls" and your ?'conscription," Father Abraham, we are ready for yon; take all the soldiers you want, only leave us our pressman. And ye, peregrina ting printers of the masculine persuasion, don't come this way; we want none of yon; every case is taken; we have all the force we need. Blessed be crinoline! Verily wae the head of the great showman level when be ottered, as by inspiration, his immortal toast: "Femail woman, you are a good egg!"?Multum in hoops ! A Spider Captures a Snake ?The Orleans < N. Y.) Republican says Hon. Lorenzo Bur rows discovered, one day last week, in an unoccupied store of his at Albion, a snake one foot in height in the coil of a spider's web. The snake bad been drawn up from*he floor about halt' his height, and the little spider was above working the tackle by which he intend ed to wholly suspend him, and that by the neck, where he had coiled his web. The snake straggled in vain to escape, and was only re leased by the carelessness of a man who went to see the contest, which was witnessed by hundreds of people during the d;iy. ^?Westminister Abbey la to have & monu ment erected to the memory of Thackarey. ?"Oov.
