His Last Thoughts "Were of You.
Copyright, 1894, by Jos. W. Stern & Co.
Written by Edw. B. Marks.

In boyhood days I've read of two brothers, Jack and Ned,
Both lovt d the sunn- sneet maiden rears ago,
But so devoted they, Neil Ui Jack be said one day:
"You marry Jane, while far from here I'll go."
He went, they met no more 'till the breaking of the war,
When both brothers to the front they marched away.
Side by side they fought until for his country's flag Jack fell-
In recalling this sad scene Ned oft would say:

His last thoughts were of you, his wife, his own, sweet darling Jane,
And the baby girl he knew in life he'd never see again.
"Dear Ned," said he, "when I'm at rest, return home I implore,
Protect the ones that I love best And leave them never more."

They found close to his breast this note to Ned addressed:
"If aught befalls, 'tis heaven's will divine
That you return again, for I know you once loved June
But sacrificed your happiness for mine."
The war came to a close. Ned returned, the story goes;
After many years his early love he wed.
As be sat at home with Jane, often-times he thought strain
Of the day when he returned to her und buid:- Chorus.
