THE ROBS THAT BLUBHED. X single rose fell downward through the air, from where within her opera box she sat, With matchless face so woodroos calm and fair, That all the singers paused to gase thereat. "Now by the stars," thought t, "if ever troth. And modesty, and spotless maided grace Were, wedded to the heart of beauty's youth. Behold them there upon that noble face. This rose that's Fallen from yoo cluster white. This will I treasure though its day be dead." I stooped to lift the rose—alas, the night! The rest were white, but this was scarlet red: The face was guileless still in all that light; And yet this perfect rose had blushed and fled. —W. J Henderson in Once a Week. OLD SIEGEL AND HIS SON.

SHADOW PICTURES. . Years ago, when you were little > [ Not so qoeenly, grand and tall. Oft I saw your tiny shadow Thrown by lamp light on the wall. Always with the arms uplifted. Reaching out for my caress. Was the shadow, till the substance Found her father's good night kiss. And to-night, my fair young daughter. When I met you in the hall, I could see again your shadow Thrown by gaslight on the wall. Arms thrown out and face unlifted— Could it be for kisses still? Here the substance solve the question: "Pa, I want a dollar bill!" —Buffalo Express. THE WHITE RABBIT. | In the winter of ISB6 I had to leave my ranch on' Eagle lake, in the mountains of Klamath county, southern Oregon, for Yreka, Cal. Any one who has wintered in that desolate region knows that the month of January is as uncongenial as it possibly can be. The snow does not come down in soft flakes, but it falls in huge, damp clouds, p.nd suddenly blots from sight the entire landJfcape. The ranch houses, too, w...

VOL. 2. NO 38. WhatisaPerfect Form? I«iew YorK Star. THERE are models and models, and of whatever character or for whatever purpose, they are always a source of interest. A model is supposed to be a perfect form. But what is a perfect fcrm? Who is to be the judge ? Certainly there is st ndard for the artist. He seeks symmetry only. It may be large or small, so long as its proportions are pleasing to the eye, and while the demand for this kind of model is limited, the available supply is not greater than the demand. There is a kind of model, however, of which, or whom, little has been written, and yet there is scarcely an issue of the dailv papers that does not contain advertisements soliciting their services. This is the model who stands on her feet from morning till night to have dresses, cloaks, coats and jerseys "hauled over" her. "Hauled" is used advisedly, because in the trying on and taking off of luesr garments the process resolves itself practically into hauling or dragging....

A LITTLE GIRL. My lady trips the stairs adown To greet the rays of morning, Which glisten round her head, a crown. Her natal day adorning. What age's my lady? Just thirteen. You'd think she was far older. Her witching eyes have grown more keen, Her teens, too, make her colder. Alas! how childhood with a whirl From yesterday is fleeting' I called her then "a little girl;" Today she scorns this greeting. Flit on, my lady, through the years Which give to Youth their plenty Of love and grief, of hopes and fears. Till Age proclaims you twenty Then, as each year Time steals a curl And dimple from you (doubting), Methinks I'd call you "little girl" Without disdainful pouting. —Walter C. Nichols in Boston Transcript. EXHAUSTIVE The smoking room of a transatlantic steamer is the greatest place in the world for stories.

VOL. 2. NO 39. Nude Art Not Naked Art. New York Star. T TITH due modesty, I V/\/ ma y say t ' iat * not V V think anybody has a better right than myself to speak authoritatively of the growth of appreciation and knowledge of art in the United States. Others have been as long engaged in fostering that growth, but their efforts were localized and, from various causes, re stricted in their influence. I, sn the other hand, have been an earnest apostle, preaching the pure gospel of art ancf beauty, in a most effective manner, in nearly al' the Cities of the United States, and to hundreds of of persons, for a quarter of a century. I am not egotistic enough to claim that I have made the change that, through higher knowledge on the subject of art, has taken place in popular sentiment within that time, but I have assuredly given not a little help to bring it about. What the change has been will be best understood by the peop.e who are accustomed to seeing paintings and statuary now, when I n...

Norfolk's Gay Whirl. Correspondence of The Critic. On Tuesday afternoon the Freemason Street Baptist church was the scene of one of the most brilliant weddings, when Mr. A. P. Fox was married to Laura, the youngest daughter of S. S. Gresham, Esquire, of this city. The church was darkened and a blaze of gas threw a soft lightoverthe mass of flowers, ferns, palms, <fcc.. with which the chancel was decorated, while every seat in the large edifice was filled. At last, to the march from "Lohengrin," and proceeded by two dear little flower girls—Mary Lou Cooke and Janie Gresham, the bride came up the aisle, leaning on the arm of her future husband. Never was there a lovelier bride seen in Norfolk as in her long trained gown of pare white faille with pearl ornaments and a bouquet of Nephitas roses she stood before the altar. Mr. Wayne Childrey was best man, and Mr. K. Dev«reux Doyle, Mr. Willie G. Thomas, of Richmond, and Mr. Thomas W. Russell, of Accomack, were ushers. The pres...

VOL. 2. NO 43. Our Poetical Corner. In the Dark. O, in the depths of midnight, When fancies haunt the brain. When even the sigh of the sleeper Sounds like a sob of pain. A sense of awe and wonder I may never well define. For the thoughts that come in the shadows Never come in the shine. * The old clock down in the parlour, Like a sleepless mourner grieves, And the seconds drip in the silence As the rain drips from the eaves. And I think of tfle hands thai signal The hours there in the gloom. And wonder what angel watchers Wait in the darkened room. And I think of the smiling faces That used to watch and wait, Till the click of the clock was answered By the click of the opening gate. They are not there now in the evening— Morning or noon—not there ; \et I know that they keep their vigil And wait for me somewhere. —James Whitcomb Kiley. life.
