Tb young, rich and handsome widow
As time goes on and she glides gracefully
into the era of mitigated grief, how beauti
ful is her whole manner, how tasteful her
attire! The most exquisite colors of the
rampant kind look garish beside her dainty
tints, and the untempered mirth of happy
girls is coarse beside her faint subdued ad
mission of moral sunshine Grajs as ten
der as a dove's breast; regal purples which
have a glow behind their gluom; stately
silks of sombre black, softly veiled by clouds
ot gauzy white all speak of passing time,
and the gradual blooming of the spring af
the sadness of winter; all symbolize the
flowers which are growing ever on, the sod
that cover the dear departed; all hint at
tb malting of tb funeral gloom iato pos
sible bridal. She begins, to, to take pleas
ure In tb old familiar things or life. She
steal into a quiet back seat in the opera;
he just walks through a quadrille; she sees
nu harm Id a fete or a flower show, If prop
erly companioned. Winter does not last
forever, and a life-long mourning Is a weari
some prospect; so she goes through ber de
gree In atonrat order, and comes out at
tb ad radient. For when the faint shad
ow cast by the era of grief pass away, she
is tb widow par excellence the blooming
widow, young, rich, gay and free; with the
world on her side, br fortune in ber band,
and the ball at ber feet. She is the freest
woman alive; freer even than any old tnaid
to be found.
