I don't think a goose is a swan,
I don't think a sheep is a rabbit,
But I think when I'm thinking thereo,
That thinking's a dangorous habit.
For some people think they are right,
And some people think they are clever,
And some think that black must be white,
And some think of nothing whatever.
And sotme people think of themselves,
And vone people think of their neigh
And some think the gold that one delves
Is very poor pay for one's labors.
Vor my part, I think that I thought
That I thunk while a-thinking and mus
That thinking Is rally worth naught,
Because thinking, I think. is cout\sing.
Only beginning the journey,
Many a tulle to go;
Little feet how they patter,
Wandering to and froI
Trying again so bravely,
Laughing In baby glee;
i1ding his face in mother's lap,
Proud as a baby can be.
Talking the oddest of language
Ever before was heard;
But Mother-you'd hardly think so
Understands every word.
Tottering now and falling,
Eyes are going to cry;
K isses and plenty of love-words.
Willing again to try.
Father of all, oh, guide them,
The pattering little feet.
While they are treading the uphill road,
Braving the dust and heat I
Aid them when they grow weary.
Keep them in pathways blest;
And when the journey is ended,
Saviour, oh, give them rest 1

A HEART LOST AND WON,
' If only she did not wear that
horrid dress! I hate serge. It clings
so closoly to the form, and--well
there's no use talking, I could not
endure the lack of popular style."
He might have added, what hold
predominance in his thought, -that
she was an orphan, and portion1less.
"I most say that I think hW# the
no.-t sensible girl that I ever met;
and her excellence there's none to
dispute-devoting her young life as
she does to the care of two queru..
lous old p)eople, who areonly distant
ly related, when their own proper
relations are indifferent as to the
welfare of both. However, since in
your fancy the quality of the soul of
womanhood depends upon its en
casement, I would advise you to
confine your Now Year's call to
city limits in future. We shall not
prolong our drive so far into the
country, for the sake of losing wine
and wit, in favor of a quiet, un
fashionable girl, who was not got
ten up for the occasion."
There was the slightest possible
sneer upon the handsome lips of
Hfarry Beadwell as these remarkcs
were uttered, which was unperceiv
ed by his friend Wordly, as they
wore whirled back toward the city.
"What possessied them to come
here," wondered Lucinda Whitford,
y a she sat musing in her own quiet
little room, after they wore gone.
"I only met them once, at Cousin
-Evas party, anld then I fancied
young Wordly was inclined to
slight me because I was not in full
toilet. I wonder why Eva always
insist. that plain, quiet dresses are
more becoming to my style I Yet
we are said to be very much alike,

simple-to "set off the Classic," as il
her artful cousin termed her style; c
or, rather, as y o u n g Wordly
thought, her lack of style. lie was a
wealthy, and traveled, and his opin- b
ions were of great weight within 3
the circle surrounding the Fifth ri
avenue belle and her quiet cousin,
Lucinda Whitford. His friend, I
Harry Boadwell, thought different
ly. But we will not anticipate. g
"Lucinda, come here and read
this letter. My old eyes fail me tl
more and snore. It is from William. a,
What does he say I" queried the old h
man impatiently. 0
"First, that auntie and yourself S
come West and make your home .
there. Secondly-what is this I" tj
said she, sweoping her hand over
the marble face, now crimson.
"Since Lucinda's distant relative, h
on her mother's side, has been so f<
accommodating as to die and leave
a cool hundred thousaud, she will
no longer care to shut herself up
with two old people." "He does r
me great injustice," she exclaimed. u
"But what does it all mean t"
"Simply this: Your mother's p
uncle has died, leaving her his pro- h
perty, which falls to you, as her on- d
ly natural heir." c<
"I do not understand. Eva and M
her father must have known this." t
"He is Rainsford'i executor," he
added, in an undertone. "Now, as
a mother, of course you will live with
them until you are of age, and we
shall go to William. You have been
a good girl, Lucinda, and may God
bless you I"
. . . . .
Again it was New Year's Day. h
Many homes are ablaze with light b
and luminous with indescribable t
fascinations. Eva Rainsford looked
charming in her dark beauty, with I
her wonderful hair arranged in a v
coiffure a la Fourbillon. The fluffy i
wands seemed airy as light itself 0
above the misty meshes of her round t
point flohu. Her dress, an artistic V
blending of blush rose and cerese
blue, with a full garniture of point k
lace, festooned with blush buds and j
blue forgot-me-nots, set off her love
liness to perfection. And yet young ,
Wordly turned from her loveliness b
to the radiant vision at her side.
A clear cut marble image, with
pure high brow, from which the (
hair was swept in Maria Stuart rip. t
ples, surmounted by a double coro
net of cluster curls, which softened
the lineaments into a wondrous
beauty, then cascaded away into a
wilderness of loosened tresses upon j
the perfect shoulders. Her dress j
of dead white silk was guiltless of ~
one puff or flounce, and the tout en.i
aemble unrelieved by so much as
one ray of coloring. The overdress
of puffed tulle was caught up heroe
and there by a star or arrow of a
Norwegian silver, and the bodice
was relieved by a necklace of Geno- ~
ese silver, delicate as frost wvork,t
and costly as pearls. Even the fas
tidious Wordly was forced to admit
her style was perfect."
"Miss Whitford," he said, "you
are absolutely dazzling. Remain
here while Bleadwell and Miss Rains.
ford are refreshing themselves. Lot
me ask you what I have so longed
to ask ever since last New Year's.
Will youbeomy wife ?"
Other callers interrupted them ;
but Wordly know women ; and her
answer, though a silent one, sent
the blood a mad race through his
patrician veins. Readwell saw it,
too, with a strange heart burning
-a bitterness toward the man who
was his friend.
"Are you tired, Cinda 7" said Eva,
later in the day.
"Yes, a little. I am going round
to see Nettie Crusworth ; she baa
sent for me. Many of the Sacred
Heart girls receive there to-day,
and they are going to have a nice
quiet time. Of course you know
Beadwell will return to-night."
"How should I know ; ho did not
tell mie. So don't be a hypoorite,
cousin. You cannnot be blind to
the fact so patent to all others, that

A revoetion seemed to burst upon
Lucinda Whitford. Perhaps that
is why he avoided her so sedulous
ly. PQrhaps that was why ho said
once, "that if he loved a portion
less girl and failed to secure her,
nothing could induce him to seek
her if by any chance she became
rich." Yet what difference could
it possibly make now?i
An hour later found her at the
home of her friend. The girls wore
uproarious, and scarcely heard the
footman announce Mr. Wordly.
Locinda instantly darted behind
the drapery whioh hlfi conealed
the bay window, bidding them be
silent by a gesture.

There was a strange glamor ovo

I would not have devoted so
much space to the father of the
bride of this evening were it not
for the fact that otherwise the ac
count that follows of the wedding
might be received with incredulity.
The bridegroom, young Throck
morton, is descended from one of the
oldest and wealthiest families of the
"blue grass country," as he loves to
call it. He came to Brazil with a
matter of half a million in his own
right, and since has prospered fa
mously, so that to day he cannot
be worth less than $6,000,000. But
a poor pittance in comparison with
his father-in-law's over-wholmingly
gigantic fortune, but still quite
sufilcient to relieve him from the
imputation of marrying the fair
Malia Cabral for money. He met her
first a year ago at a ball at Pernam
buco, and the result was a case of
love at first sight on both their
parts. They make an exceedingly
prepossessing c o u p 1 e-he tall,
broad shouldered, yellow of hair
and mustache, and she a tiny,
graceful, lovely-faced brunette.
The invitations were written on
parchment by artistic hands, in
quaint text, exquisitely illuminated.
Instead of being enclosed in paper
envelopes, they were sent to their
favored recipientseach in its dainty
box of sandal wood. These boxes,
1,000 in number, were manufac
tured to order expressly for this
wedding at Canton. Each one of
them was furnished with a lock and
key of solid gold, was exquisitely
carved with cupids and hearts and
other designs appropriate to the
occasion, and cost $150. My own
invitation lies beside me as I write,
and I catch the delicate scent of
AN RAATULY PARADISR.
The residence of the great Dia
mond King, at which the wedding
took place, is situated a little over
half a mile from Diamantina, which
is, you know, the chief town of the
diamond district. The house is
the complete realization of the ideal
castles of the regulation English
novels, and the grounds connected
with it are the last expression of
nature at her loveliest, reinforced
by art at its most consummate.
This evening the place seemed a
paradise. Wax candles by the
thousands, each caught and held in
its place by a bronze figure, flooded
the rooms within and the miles of
ground without with a soft yet bril
liant light. Here and there, on the
green slopes, or in the rustic bow
Fers, or at the edge of some roman
tic ravine, large music-boxes, im
bedded a n d completely hidden
I from view in moss, played a soft
-and dreamy accompaniment to the
I voice of the fountains. One hun
b dred music-boxes were employ.
I od in this service, and the tunes
that were pricked on their cylinders
- wvere composed especially for the
,nuptial night by no less celebrated
a musician thian IAszt. He receiv
ed a draft of $25,000 for his witch
)ing work, and who shall say -that
he did not earn it ? Certainly no
Sone that listened to the music. The
music-bozes will be distributed on
~the morrow among the bridesmaids
1and other guests of this evening,
a as uniqite remembrances of the
wedding. Each of one them was im
ported from Paris, is eased in mo
saic, and elaborately finished in
gold, silver, and a variety of pre
cions stones. The hnndred boxes
e cost as many thousand dollars. The
drawing-room in which the Ken
tuckian and his "dark Brazilian
brIde" were made one dlesh had
one feature in its adornment which
a elicited the most fervent expression
i of delight and amazement from all
1 who were present. I allude to the
a decorations of the four walls. They
- were one mass of full-blown white
a camiellias from floor to ceiling, and
I a good sized diamond was inserted
1 in the centre of each to cunningly
I counterfeit the dew drop. The ef
t feet was simply ravishing. It is
a estimated that the adornment of
a this one room called for an expendi
* ture of not less than $10,000,000. No
diamond was given the role of the
dew drop that was not white, and
a perfect "as the bosom of a star."
B A PATH OY FLwWR..
e The entire distance from the Ca
:1 bral mansion to the nearest railroad
,f station, something less than a quar
a ter of a mnile, was literally a way of
:flowers-not under foot, but im
.t graceful arches overhead. Thus a
b- long, snow-white bower, fashioned
.entirely of roses, was the connect
I. ing link between the drawing- roow
I', and the drawing-eom ear. Thei
e demand m)ade on Flora for the
r materiuls for this pietaresque coy,
k eted way was unprecedent. Thei
* hower.bill. for the wed4lng---ex
* alsve of the item of hand ha
quets-amounted to $50,000. But
the strangest thing in regard to
this bower I have yet to toll. Its
floor for the entire length was cov.
ed with camel's hair shawls, to my
mind a piece of preposterous, aye,
wicked extravagance. But the fa
ther of the bride declared that so
long as it was his only daughter
and only child whose marriage he
was celebrating, he would send her
out of her home to the steam car
riage that was to carry her away
from him, over a pavement not like
ly to be imitated in the future his
tory of marriages in South America.
The shawls for this extraordinary
purpose were purchased in London,
the order being for "the best that
can be had for gold," and the bill
for the items amounted to the enor
mous sum of $568,500. After the
bridal party entered the train the
shawls were gathered up, and to
morrow they will be distributed
aionq the poor of the district.
And now a few words about the
bride's presents. They were by ac
tual count, 1,840 in number, and
the greater part of them, I noticed,
took the form of either gold or
diamonds. The mother's gift was a
dinner set of 280 pieces of solid gold.
Each piece bears the monogram of
Cabral and Throckmorton in dia
monds. The cost of this proof of ma.
ternal affection was something over
$4,000,000 in gold. In addition,
Mme. Cabral gladdened the bride's
heart with 1,000 yards of point
lace; 365 morning, afternoon and
evening costumes, one for each so
cial division of every day in the
year; and, to crown all, a certificate
of deposit issued by the Bank of
England-England being the ob
jective point of the bridal tour
for ?1,000,000. Her father gave her
title deeds of a magnificent town
and country house, in all the lead
ing capitals of the world and the
more famous watering-places. These
many mansions are thoroughly fur
nished, and in each-as a tender re
minder to Malia of her maidenhood
there is an apartment that exactly
corresponds in furniture and adorn
ments to her own room at her fa
ther's house. Not contenting him
self with this display of his bounty,
Cabral presented her with as fine a
steamship as could be built on the
Clyde, with full complement of sail
ore under contract for ten years'
service, and with salaries paid in
advance for the full term ; one
dozen milk-white Arabian horses,
and, this as a joke, 1,000 pounds of
caramnels, a confection for which
the bride is said to have a pro
nounced liking. But
HIS CROwNING GiFT'
was a necklace that deserves to
rank among the enumerated won
ders of the world. Sixteen years
ago, soon after Malia's birth, he be
gan to collect the diamonds of
which it is composed. Whenever
or wherever he heard of a marvel
lous stone he was on hand in per
son or by agent and secured it.
He had all Europe, Asia and Africa
ransacked in behalf of the proposed
necklaeb, and at one time actdally
made overtures for the celebrated
Pitt diamond, which cost the Duke
of Orleans, according to history,
$675,000, and which Napoleon at
one time wvore on his sword hilt.
He was baffled in this attempt, how
ever, much to his disappointment,
but after ten years of unremitting
hunting he at last got together thirty
of the largest and putest diamonds
in the world, no one of which. was
much inferior to the Pitt gem.
Taking these to Amsterdam, he
summoned the best talent in that
city, famous for its diamond cutters,
and stated what he desired--which
was that each of the thirty stones
should have a fantastic face cut
upon it. Amsterdam at first said
that the task was more than hurcu
le'an--that it was impossible. But
when Cabral stated the stupendous
sum hie was willing to pay for the
fulfillment of his wishes, Amster
dam reconsidered and consented to
do its best. It did its best for five
years, day and night, and the re
suIt was that a week before the
wedding, the diamonds, cut, carved,
set on a golden string, and all ready
to embrace the snowy neck of the
bride, were placed in the hands of
the jubilant Cabral. I happened
to be present when Malia first was
showff the necklace, a couple of
days before she was married. She
wore a black silk at the time, and
her father, after throwing the bril.
liante, that contrasted so strongly
with the color of the dress, over
her head, stepped back a few paces

A story is told of a daughter of a i
prominent person now in the loc. M
ture field, which is peculiarly in- y
teresting and suggestive of uncon a
scious wisdom. A gentleman was
invited to the lecturer's house to a
tea. Immediately on being seated
at the table, the little girl astonish
od the family circle and the guest
by the abrupt question :
"Where is your wife ?"
Now the gentleman, having boon d
recently separated from the part- ai
aAer of his life, was taken so com.- b
pletely by surprise that he stam-- a'
mered forth the truth : p
"I don't know."n
"Don't know !" replied the enfant si
terrible. "Why don't you know ?"
Finding that the child persisted E
in her interrogatorics, despite the I
mild reproof of her parents, he con-.
eluded to matke a clean breast of the n
matter, and have it over at once. b
So be said with a calmness which h
was the result of inward ox)leo Vos:
"Well, we don't live together ; we
think, as we can't agree, we'd better i
He stifled a groan as the child I
began again, and darted an exaspe- g
rated look at her parents. But the r
little torment would not be quieted o)
until she exclaime~d :
"Can't agree! Then why dlon't Y
you fight it out, as pa and ma (10 ?" r
"Vengeance is mine," laughingly 0
retorted the visitor, after "pa" andl '
"ma" exchanged looks of holy hor
ror, followed by the inevitable roar.
Some years ago, in one of our
Western courts, three men-an a
Englishman, an Irishman, and1 a a
Scotchman were found guilty of o
murder and sentenced to be hung. e
The Judge told them they could
each choose a tree on which they 'j
would like to be 'strung up.' The i
Scotchman promptly chose an ash 'j
tree, and the Englishman an oak e
tree. 'Well Pat, what will you be a
hung on?' asked the Judge. 'If it a
please your honor, I'd rather be i
hung on a gooseberry bush.' 'Oh,' b
said the Judge, 'that's not big a
enough.' 'Be gorry, then,' replied i,

000,980.88 Cabral showed me the
receiptS yesterday, so that I am
able to state the exact figures.
You must not expect from me
any description of the ornate and
bewildering toilets worn at the wed
ding-no, not even of the bride's
rare raiment. I aru indebted to a
lady guest for the information that
her dress was of point lace, flounced,
or rather garlanded, to the waist
with strings of aced pearls, with
voluminous train edged with a
tilagree of gold thickly set with
diamonds. Her neck was circled
by her father's wonderful offering,
besides which there were diamonds
banded en her hair and in brace
lets on her wrists. She was certain
ly the most blazing beauty I ever
There was one feature of the
wedding arrangements which struck
me might better have beon omitted
entirely, or at least very materially
modified, but which, nevertheless,
in the mock it made of expense, was
quite in keeping with all the other
features. I allude to the provision
made for the hackmuen who drove
the guests to and from the festivi
ties. On the velvet lawn just out
side the Cabral mansion, a dozon
or more Sevres vases were sot
corresponding in size and shape to
an American peach basket-each
one of which was heaped to the
brim with thegold coin of the coum
try. The drivers as they dropped
their loads had their attention call
ed to the curredcy in the vases, and
were cordially invited to help them
ENRICHING A HACK DlIVER.
As often as the vases were emp
tied they were promptly replenish
ed by servants detailed for that
sole purpose One of the backmen
responded so heartily to the invi
tation that when the time came for
him to drive back to town he was
forced to request his two passen
gers to favor him by taking a seat
on the box. He explt*ined, not
without blushes and stammering,
that the inside of his coach was oc
cupied by the gold pieces lie had
accumulated during the evening;
and that he would not have taken
so many had it not been for the
thought of a sick wife at home.
Having listerted to him, his load,
before mounting the box, returned
to the house and related the inci
dent to Cabral, who was so touched
at the mention of the sick wife that,
on sudden impulse, he proprosed
a subscription for her benefit. The
response was general, and in a shor t
time the snug sum of *I0,000 was
raised among the guests, to which
Cabral added his own cheek for
$40,000 more saying that he did
not wish any heart to be sad on
that joyful occasion. When the
$50,000 were handed to the hack
man, "a cordial for your ailing wife,
my man," as Cabral put it, ho burst
into tears, declaring that there
never was such a man in the world
as Da Souza Cabral.
