'TIS HOME WHERE'ER OUR FLAG IS.

'Tis home where'er our flag is,
Dear hearts remember that;

You may be at Pekin, Paris,

Madrid or Ararat;

But whereso'er waves that fair,

That bonnie banner blue,

With stars bedight, with stripes so bright,
There's home, sweet home, for you.

Sweet home where'er our flag is,
Honor 'neath its stars,

If waved from foreign crag 'tis,

That foreign crag is ours!
Columbia's dower gives peerless power
To guard her children true;
And wheresoe'er our colors flare,
There's home for me and you.

OLIVE LOGAN.

-The Home Magazine, August, 1890.

JEFFERY.

NOTES.

Some very singular mental experiences have fallen to Mrs. Jeffery's lot. One is as follows: She had almost entirely written in prose, though greatly desiring and often attempting to express her thoughts in verse, until one night in 1875 when she thought herself dying-while in great suffering-she composed "Sister Viatoe." Her mind worked so clearly that she went over and over each verse while lying on her bed of pain, and a few days after got it on paper so she could preserve it, since which time she has rarely written in prose, everything coming to her persistently in rhythmical measure and rhyme, sometimes even her letters taking this form, without premeditation. In her "Sister Viatoe" her sister was the "patient watcher" referred to. It was published in the Chicago Tribune immediately, and quite widely copied, though often without credit given to her name. Her exquisite "Blight and Bloom" was first printed several years ago in the Alliance. Thence it was copied into "The Christian Life" department of the Advance, with correct title, signature and credit. After this it was, by actual count, copied into more than one hundred papers and magazines, giving no credit whatever, until it drifted at length into the Evangelical Magazine, to which it has ever since been wrongfully credited. It has also been made into an illustrated holiday book by a southern publishing company, but without signature.

GILES. The poet referred to in "Oh, ye Beautiful Hills of Frankfort," is Robert Burns Wilson.

MITCHELL. Walter Mitchell was born at Nantucket, Mass., January 22, 1826. He was graduated at Harvard College in the class of 1846; entered the ministry of the Protestant Episcopal Church in 1858; was settled at Stamford, Conn., in the same year; and in 1880 was rector of Trinity Church, Rutland, Vt. He is the author of "Bryan Maurice," a novel, also of a poem delivered before the Phi Beta Kappa Society of Harvard, in 1875. His "Tacking Ship" is remarkable for the nautical accuracy of the description. It is as true to life as any part of the "Shipwreck" of Falconer, while it surpasses that once famous poem in graphic power and freedom of style. E. S.

HIGGINSON. Mary Thacher Higginson is the wife of Thomas Wentworth Higginson (vide THE MAGAZINE OF POETRY, vol. II, p 64), "Gifts" was published in Scribner's Magazine for March, 1880, and with the exception of a single sonnet published in St. Nicholas makes up the total of her published poetry.
