In this and the remaining lessons the particular ex. ercises in Position and Breathing will be omitted, but it is not intended that they should be neglected in the class drill. Exercises, similar to those presented in the previous lessons, should form part of every class exercise. It is not the purpose of the work to present every exercise that should be given to pupils; much will be left for the teacher to supply.

WILLIAM E. MILLER.
LET me lie down
Just here, in the shade of this cannon-torn tree,
Let me lie down.
O, it was grand!
Like the tempest we charged, in the triumph to share;
On, on, o'er intrenchments, o'er living and dead,
Weary and faint,
Prone on the soldier's couch, ah, how can I rest,
O, that last charge!
Right through the dread hell-fire of shrapnel and shell,
It was duty!
Some things are worthless, and some others so good
My mother, dear mother! with meek tearful eye,
Great Heaven! this bullet-hole gapes like a grave;
Is there never a one of you knows how to pray,
Our Father! our Father! why don't you proceed?
Can't you see I am dying?
Great God, how I bleed!
Ebbing away! The light of the day is turning to gray.
Our Father in Heaven,-boys, tell me the rest,
While I stanch the hot blood from this hole in my breast.
There's something about the forgiveness of sin;
cloud, And were scattered like mist by our brave little crowd?
I am dying; bend down, till I touch you once more;

Aspirate. The Aspirate is that quality of voice in which the breath is sent forth from the organ in a whisper-tone with the resonance in the middle of the mouth.
Without command of the Aspirate Quality it is impossible to give appropriate expression to the emotions of fear, awe, horror, dread, amazement, and similar passions.
The Aspirate, when combined with Orotund, intensifies the utterance of deep solemnity, sublimity, adoration, and profound reverence.
It is in this combined form that the Aspirate will be of the greatest practical advantage to the general student.
