A IiADY'S MAID'S REVENGE.
The Unplonpnut Prcillcnmont of n Iinily of
From tlio N. Y. Tribune.
The fashion of sowing tiny sachets of fra
grant powders In tho corsage of dresses is not
now, and Is certainly a very agrccahlo one.
There also tho perfume used must bo no
stronger than violet or penu d'Espague, amber,
or orris-root. A well-known Parisian elegante,
tho young Countess do C , had, two years
ago, good causo to rcgrot having ever adopted
this fashion. Tho Countess, who Is 'one of tho
prettiest members of tho French aristocracy, Is
somowhat extravagant on tho subject of dresR,
and has all tho costly caprices of a queon of
society accustomed to reign In tho most brilliant
capltnl city of the world. All bow before her
sceptre; she gives law and makes tho fashions,
and conquests unnumbered strow her path as
thick as tho leaves on a willow tree. Ono day
she had occasion to scold her maid, who had
neglected some part of her service. On that
same ovenlng tho Countess was going to a ball
at tho Duchesso d'Uzo's, and, as all tho "flno
flour" of French and forclgu society was to bo
present, tho beauty desired particularly to look
her very bc6t. Standing In front of her dressing-room
glass, with tho gleam of tho wax
lights playing on her whlto brow, on her daz
zling eyes and on her soft, golden curls, she
surveyed her cxqulslto toilette of white velvet
strewn with silver lilies and ablaze with dia
monds. A great bouquet of "Roro d'Or" roses
nestled on her breast, making Its whiteness look
like snow. Another hurried look, for her car
riage had just been announced, and tho Count
ess, turning to her ablgall, exclaimed Impa
tiently: "lou have forgotton my sachet; give
It to mo quickly." Tho maid hastened to com
ply with tho request, but as sho did so thero
was a mischievous twinkle in tho girl's eyo
which her mistress unfortunately did not no
tice. Slipping tho little satin bag In her cor
sage,"6ho swept out of tho room, and ten min
utes later mado her entrance in tho salons of
Immediately surrounded by crowds of ad
mirers anxious for a waltz or a quadrlllo, tho
Countess throw herself with great zest Into tho
amusements of tho evening. Tho rooms were
very warm, although great blocks of Ico had
been placed on bronze consols in every corner
to cool the air. On danced tho little Countess,
getting warmer and warmer herself, but enjoy
ing tho rapid motion, tho cxqulslto music, and
the perfect floor. Suddenly, to her intense sur
prise, sho became aware of a notablo change in
the conduct of her partners. They gradually
dropped away from her sldo and appeared to
avoid her. For tho first time in her Hfo sho
was allowed to sit through a dance unattended.
What was It that she read In tho glanco of these
men so anxious to be near her earlier in the
evening? It was not censure, not injury, not
wonder; it was more vague than any of these,
yet to her it spoko them all I For a few seconds
her lovely antelope eyes lightened with anxiety,
her delicate bloom paled; then rising from her
seat she approached the placo where her most
intimate friend, the Maiqulso deB., was stand
ing. "What Is the matter? What have I done?"
she asked tremulously.
Tho Marquise, repressing a smile, drew her
friend into a 6ecluded embrasure screened by
flowering shrubs and whispered a few words in
"Good heavens !" exclaimed the Countess,
"I had noticed this myself, but could not think
whence it came," and with a violent gesture sho
tore tho sachet which her maid had handed to
her from within her dress. It was filled with
powdered Parmesan cheese, almost melted by
the warmth of the nest wherein it had been
hidden. A veil must bo drawn over tho scene
which took place between mistress and maid;
and it was long., very lone, before the Countess
got over the horrible memory of her femme do

An Unequaled Service from Wash
ington ami Baltimore to Boston via
tlio Pennsylvania Kailroatl.
Tho new daylight run, which forms a connec
ting chain from Washington to Boston, taking
in as links Baltlmoie aud Philadelphia, is, with
out doubt, the best servlco tho near South has
over had. It is a service, too, much needed at
the present time, when tho doors of tho South
ern States are open for tho admlesion of North
ern visitore and capital.
Independent of the equipment and fast time
maintained, a most delightful break is mado at
Jersoy City by tho entire train of parlor cars and
day coaches belnir transferred to tho decks of
tho Maryland, which steams out Into tho har
bor, in view of its varied and interesting sights,
until it reaches Harlem Rlvor, and from thence
on tho train speeds over tho Shoro Lino to Bos
tou. This train leaves Washington at 8:10 aud
Baltimore 9:08 A. M., week days, and icachoo
Jiostou y v. m. tuo same uay; returning, it
leaves Boston 9:15 A. M week days, and
reaches Baltimore 9:53 and Washington 10:55
P. M. tho same day. Thoiido on tho steamer
Maryland gives ample time for serving din
ner, which is a great comfort to tho average
traveler. Tho ontlio routo Is an interesting one,
and the high standard of time aud equipment Is
a credit to tho Pennsylvania Railroad Company.
