THE STAG DANCE.

THE STAG DANCE.

OUR soldiers believe in the literal interpretation of the dictum of the Wise Man that "there is a time to dance." But to put their faith into works is not the easiest thing in the world, owing to the

lack of partners of the feminine persuasion. However, by imagining a bearded and pantalooned fellow to be of "t'other kind," they succeed in getting up what they call a "Stag Dance," which is better than none, as is shown by the intense interest evinced by the spectators.

A VETERAN ON FURLOUGH.

OUR Veteran Soldiers, the heroes of many a hard-fought field—and of what is perhaps still harder to endure, of many a long march and weary encampment—are now returning by thousands for a brief

visit to their loved ones at home, before returning to the field. The scene which our artist has depicted, where a returned veteran is telling his story of that war, a part of which he was, is this day being enacted in thousands of homes in every section of the broad Union.
