MY LOST SELF.
BY MART AINOK DE VKRE.
Yon wonder why my eyes are dimmed with tears,
1 lien shall I tell you? Long aud long ago
So busg agol years pilrd on weary years
There was a little child I used to know.
And every day and night and every hour
Wa took life's rift together, too and shade.
And saw the rainbow saining through the shower,
And heard the talk that building robins made.
We thought the world was oars, to come and go
About its highways, finding treasures rare;
We thought all Heaven was ours, and fashioned so
Grand castle after raatle high in air!
Ah! row I find the world a desert wild;
No r..om in all the sky for tower of mine,
But most of all I miss my comrade chll J;
tier brave true courage and her faith diving.
Dead? Changed? I know not, sweet; I only know
That sometimes from the mirror's sbining space,
In my own features, worn and faded so,
1 catch a glimmer of the bright, lost face.
Ton will no longer wonder that I weep
My little girl with eyes so grave and clear;
W hatever treasure we may hold or keep;
To lose one'a happy self is saddest, dear!
A RAILWAY VICTIM.
Agnes Kepplier in Philadelphia Sunday Times.
It whs only an' hour and a half journey
ami tlio day, for June, was cihI and ploas-
ant. I had a magazine und the morning
paj-r with which to refresh my wearied
spuiK and on the whole I expected to enjoy
my i ide extremely, but I was mistaken.
Jut before the train started, Dick, whom I
fancied half-way down to his office by that
time, came rushing back, bringing with hitn
an unknown man, with large side-whiskers
And pale blue eyes. ,
"The moet fortunate thing in the world,
Nan," he said; I have just discovered that
31 r. Muzzle is bound for your destinatioa,
too, and he will be delighted to take charge
of you and see you safely home." There
upon be introduced me to Mr. Muzzle, who
ea:d he would be delighted, and the train be
gfc n;ngto move Dick had barely time to
jump on, waving me an adieu through the
car window as he stood outside, with an ex
pression of suppressed amusement on his
face, which I noticed at the time, but only
Now, I did not think I stood in need of
protection for a short ride, and I have always
preferred being left to my own devices when
traveling, but I decided to offer the news
paper amiably to my companion and keep
the magazine, and flattered myself that it
would not make much difference after all.
Vain delusion! AVe had hardly cleared the
depot, when I observed Mr. Muzzle endeav
oring quite frantically to attract the atten
tion of a very sour-looking old gentleman
on the other side of the car. The old gen
tleniHn at last becoming aware of these ma
nftivera, looked, I thought, sourer than ever
and touched his hat glumly in answer to the
other's good morning. "YV ith a relieved ex
pre oion, Mr. Muzzle sank back on his
cushions and turned to me.
"Thatis Mr. Brokonoff,' he said, "John
Thomas Brokonoff. Do you know him at
I said I didn't and felt inwardly grateful
that such was the case.
Broker on Wall street; lives outside of
the city; very influential man, indeed, lie
married one of old General Gibber t's daugh
ters. You know the Gibberts, I presume."
1 i-aid I didn't again, this time feeling
rather ashamed, he seemed so sure I ought
to know them.
'It was one of those Gibbert girls, the
youngest, I believe no, she married young
ticrubbs; it must have been the older. Now
that I have come to think of it, it was not
one of that family at all, but their cousin,
Adelina Gibbert, of St. Louis, who ran off
with that good-for-nothing Dumfries Did
dlebirL He drank himself to death a year
after their marriage. I dare say you have
heard of him.1
I had not but kept my humiliating ignor
ance to myself.
'Poor Dumfries 1 I used t know him
right well; good-hearted fellow as overlived
btit not much brains. They tell a story of
him down at ," but here the locomotive
whistle gave a long, agonized screech and I
mied the next sentence. When the
whittle stopped my companion was still talk
ing and had evidently reached the middle of
his anecdote. Having lost the beginning, it
did not seem -worth while to listen to the
end, to I took a mental survey of mv po
sition. We had been just about ten minutes,
so lar, In the cars. Was it possible that the
next hour and a quarter were to bo filled up
in this way? I thought the train had never
been so noisy before. Through the open
window the rumbling of the wheels almost
drowned Mr. Muzzle's voice, though I was
conscious he was absolutely screaming at me
in his anxiety that I should hear. Suddenly
he pnused. There was an interrogative look
in hi pale blue eyes. He must have asked
me a question, but what could if have been?
With some embarrassment I screamed back
that I had not heard him.
'I asked you if you thought he was called
on to take it under the circumstances?" he
4No, indeed," I hazarded, and instantly
perceived my reply was a wrong one.
'You forget," he said, earnestly, "that he
knew the horse was a little lame already.
Something the matter with one of the fore
feet. But it was just like Dumfries after all.
Why another time I was in his office and a
seedy-looking fellow came in and wanted to
borrow $5 of him; said he had known bis
father very well. Tom Catesby was there
at the time and a couple of other men, and
I s ii i: 'Dumfries, I wouldn't give him any
mny if I were you He looks as if ho
drank.' Dumfries seemed uncertain about
it, and then Catesby said: 'Yon had better
take Muzzle's advice in the matter, Diddle-bi-t;
you had inceed.' So ho told the man
that he couldn't lend him any that day, or
that he had none handy, or something of
that sort, and the fellow went away. But
if 1 had not been there Dumfries would just
as likely to have given it to him as not.
And the point of the joke is that when we
got outside Catesby said: 'What on earth
did you say anything about drinking for,
whenyoa know Dumfries drinks like a fish?'
I hadn't thought of it at all. Catesby never
quite got over that." "
During this little anecdote I had matured
a plan of defense, and in desperation I now
p-ceeded to act upon it. "Mr. Muzzle," I
sid, abruptly, ''would you like to see the
morning paper?' handing it him as I spoke,
and picking up my magazine at the same
He seemed a little surprised, but took the
shfPt, thanked me, and turned directly to
the list of marriages and deaths. "Ahl" he
murmured, "Smith. Kobson, Newcastle:
must be some relation to old John New
catle, I fancy. He used to live in that part
ol the country. Sinkerson, Billingby. Oh!
1 we, young Todkins Billingby has lost his
My heart sank within me at this an
nouncement, not that I knew Todkins Bil
lingby or his wife either; but I felt sure
what was coming, and lamented her demise
"Let me see, said Mr. Muzzle, ,4he must
have been married to her about five years,
I guess. Thirty-three, the paper says she
He seemed so much concerned that
afkod him if she had been a friend of his.
Oh. no. not particularly," he replied; in
fact, I never saw her but once; but his first
wife was a sister of a very old acquaintance
of mine. Theodore Smithkins Billingby
was married to her in Havana, I believe,
where he went for nis healtn. ' bhe was
traveling with the Browns, and the match
w ? a verv unexpected one, indeed. Took
both families by surprise, I remember, when
th news came."
By this time I had closed my magazine
.And reconcilied myself to fate. It would
ha e been just the same if I had not given
him the paper.
He would havo seen somebody else, who
was distantly related to the fourth cousin of
some one he knew, or we would have stop
ped at a station where somebodv lived
whom he used to meet at somebodv else's
house and about whom there would be plenty
tobe told. As well hear of Todkins Billing-
by's first wife as anyone else, but what could
Dick have meant by burdening me in this
After thiit I attempted no further distrac
tion. We went smoothly through the Bil
lingbys and Smithkins, with a slight di
gresion into the family history of the Browns
and the cars rumbled, and the whistle
screeched, aud Mr. Muzzle grew quite pur
ple in the face with hiwell-intentioned effort
to amuse nie. Then an incident he related
about the Smithkins put him in mind of a
similar experience on the part of one of the
Tumbledowns, whose entire family tree he
furnished me with before he came to the
anecdote itself, and in this way the hour and
a halfwent blitely by.
When I had finally seen the last of Mr.
Muzzle and had reached home, feeling as
limp as if I had travelled three hundred
miles, insted of thirty, I found a teletrram
awaiting me, which I tore orfn in enmn
alarm. It was hrioflv worded a fMi..

Perhaps even more important toward the
achievement of a noble life than a memory
well-stored with sacred texts is an imagina-
ion weil decorated with heroic pictures; in
other words, there is no surer method of be
coming g(Hd, and it may bo great also, than
an early familiarity with the lives of great
and good men. So far as my experience
goes, there is no kind of sermon so effective
as the example of a great man. Here we
see the tiling done before U3 actually done
a thin jj of which we were not even dream
ing; and the voice speaks forth to us with a
potency like the voice of many waters, "Go
thou and do likewise." Why not? No
doubt, not every man is a hero, and heroic
opportunities are not given every day; but
if you can not do the same thing, you may
do somhteing like it; if you are not planted
on a? high or as large a stage, you can snow
as much manhood and manifest as much vir
tuous persistency on a small scale. Every
man may profit" by tho example of truly
great men, if he is bent on making the most
of himself and his circumstances. It is
altogether a delusion to measure the great
ness of men bv tho crreatness of the stage on
wbch thev act. or the volume of the sound
with whi.-h th world loves to reverberate
their achievements. Nay, that moral hero
ism is often greatest of which the world says
least, and which is exercised in the humblest
spheres and in circles the most unnoticed.
lx-t us therefore turn our youtniui lrnagina
tions into irreat picture-galleries and Wal
hallas of the heroic souls of all times and
all places, and we shall be incited to follow
after good, and be ashamed to commit any

THE BABY'S FUN BAL.
Hearse, and Casket, and Flowers The Un
dertaker's Story 'tuf Wiedersehen.
From the Detroit Free Press
"It is well with the child."
We could hardlv see it at first, for some
thing that was in our eyes, and made a sort
of mist, but as it moved slowlv away we
looked after it, and thought how pretty and
appropriate it was. Father saw us all stand-
ing at the window, and when we said it was
the baby's hearse, he looked too, and then
something got into his eyes, and he walked
off, and picked little Mabel up and gave her
such a kiss, and she seemed to understand
what he meant and held out her little 'vhite
hands and said, "pretty ba-bee," and then
we all laughed and squeezed her, and mother
must be getting nervous, for she cried, just
as if it had been our babv that naa gone
I staid at the window as long as I could
see the little white carriage, with its clear
glass sides, and all the lovely flowers heaped
within as if there had been nothing else but
a load of rosebuds and white carnations and
velvet pansies. Then I looked to see if tho
long white ribbons, with their garland of
green leaves and palo pink buds had been
taken from the door; thev wcro htill there,
but while 1 was lookinc a white-haired wo
man canioand took them in. She was cry
ing, and I thought she was the baby's grand
mother, and most likely would be glad to
die now, and why must the little child go
hrst? 1 told mother about it, and she said
if I would look in mv 'Sunday-school Bible
I would know, and referred me to the last
clause of the fourteenth verse of , St. Mark,
chapter ten; then she eung to Mabel as she
often does, but this time it was abeut "A
lleaper whose name is Death," and I wished
the baby's mother could have heard the
II Rased at the flowers with tearful eyes,
He kilned their drooping lettves,
It was for the Lord of Paradise,
He bound them in their heaTes.
We knew mother's heart was full by the
way she sung.
1 had a curiosity to see more of the baby's
hearse, so one day I stepped into tho place
wncre u is Kepi anu asKeu tne man wno
OAS charge of it to let me look at lu
"Anybody dead?" he asked in a sort of
professional tone, "want mo to come over
and measure the baby? "
My heart almost stood still.
"Measure the baby?" I echoed his words
in a dazed way, for it was not a w'eek since
We measured the riotons Imhy
Aainxt the rottsge wall.
What did he mean?
'If you just want to see tho vehicle," he
continued, seeing this was not a business
call, "come right out and look at it; it's the
first one ever came to Detroit been in use
thirteen years and pretty as a picture yet.
Now ain't it a beauty?" and he stepped up
and took off" the covering.
It was pretty. White and satiny smooth,
with gold and silver rails running along the
sides, and pretty carved ornaments of woed,
engraved with gold and silver, and crystal
sides, with a white silk curtain festooned
within and little silver urns to hold fresh
flowers; four snow-white plumes decorated
tho corners, and the wheels glistened in their
freedom from spot or blemish. It looked
so like the pretty coach a baby would choose
to ride in, no wonder people watched it as it
glided noiselessly, like a chariot ot Israel,
through the busy noisy reets.
"Now, you must see th horses that draw
it," said the owner of th' hearse, and ho
pushed open a side door, arr tncro were tjie
two milk-white animals, in their separate
stalls. "They're just as naKwin', them fol
lows," he sfi;d, pattini questlo.u-hilc, smooth
hair, as if they had when the cai quite as gen
tle as if they knew'lndt and, hey they were
drawing. "They've got styletoo, but it's
subdued kind of kept in all the time to
a becoming degree. They know just as w ell
as tho driver when to start, and what gaitto
strike, and they change steps coming back,
and move out livelier, as if they knew thero
wouldn't Ikj any feelings hurt. That team
and vehicle are worth $800 couldn't match
them for that."
'Are all babies buried in the babies'
"All that can afford it, and a good many
that can't. It costs $8 to $10 a trip for that
alone; and, on account of the glass sides,
the casket must be a handsome one, and
that costs all the way from $20 to $100. And
then people like to have a good many flow
ers, and they cost a good penny, but it is a
beautiful sight beau-ti-ful. When we first
started it the women all along the route
would come out and look after it, and cry
like it was their baby. Older children use
it too as old as 12 years, but there ain't so
manv of them die."
"What did they do before the hearso was
"Carried them in their laps sometimes in
tho first carriage, or put the casket in tho
seat, or had the big hearso jus, as they lan
ded; it wasn't so comfortable and con-
ventcnt a way, either; there's lots of babies
die; you can see rows of little graves up at
Klmwood or Mount Elliott, in some lots
eight lying side by side. Graves not over
two and a half feet long. There are all
kinds of ornaments and keepsakes on them,
too toys they used to play with, half-worn
shoes under a glass case, and marble if ' nbs
and dogs. Folks always take it so to h cart
losing the baby! Why, I've seen middle
aged men and women break down when the
time camo for me to put on the lid; and it is
hard to shut out a sweet little face, that looks
a3if it might be asleep. A baby isn't like
anything else. It will suffer more than any
grown person will, but, when it is dead,
there ain't any hard lines or pinched looks;
it s just Iiko a little sleeping doll, with a
smile on it's lips. I've seen a heap of them
first and last."
As I followed him back through the ware
house he stopped to show me a little cajket,
covered with whito cloth and lined with
white merino, with satin puffings; there
was a s,ilvcr gimp that ran all arounä the
inside edges, which wero festooned wuh the
whito satin; there was an inscription on the
name-plate that 1 stopped to read:
Aged 2, .
"To God wo give with tears."
"It goes away to-morrow," said the under
taker. "Now here is something you might
like to see."
It was a little hanaful of golden hair

but written in one corner wero the simple
words "aur wiedersehen," and they made
tho tears start. 1 asked the florist who it
was for, and he said a little German . baby,
and Ehowed me a pillow of white blossoms

said the florist, "and we have to visit all the
nurseries and rob them of their buds. Then
we have what we call tinted funerals, where
all the flowers are pale pink, pale blue, and
just touched with a color. Mixed pillows are
now much called lor wnue, pink and lilac,
interspersed with smilax and laurel. It's

I thought of this all the way home, and
remembered a little rhyme I had often read
in mother s scrap-book:
A butterfly badked on 1 baby's grave
Where a Illy hd chanced to grow;
"Why art thou here of the gaudy dye.
When she of the bright and sparkling eye
Mast sleep in the churchyard low?"
Then it lightly apoke as it shook its wings
And soared to its airy track;
"I was a worm till 1 wou my wiucs;
he whom thou mournst like a seraph sings,
Would'et thou call the loved one t-ack?"
The next morning at 4:00 mother read
the death of tho baby whoso funeral we had
seen; but just think how we all felt when
wo saw ".Mabel only child of Arthur and
Kate Kussel, aged one year."
"We will meet thee,
We will greet thre,
In the aweet by aud by."
I forgot to eav father was in the Citv
Clerk's office, and knowing that I am always
interested in the facts and figures of every
thing, he brought me home a little slip ot
Saper with the number of babies who have
ied in our beautiful Detroit in three months.
and are buried at Elmwood, Woodmere,
Mt. Elliot, and the German Lutheran Ceme
teries. There were seventy babies died in
the month of May, 113 in June, and 146 in
July a bad record for July of 1880, since-
w exceeds our imam mortality oi an preced
ing years. Jlothcr savs the great heat was
the cause, and that as manv died in one
week in New York City. Poor little things!
I always take mv religion second-hand and
quote some sweet verse instead of what God
has said, but I know the poet drew his in
spiration from the Bible when he savs:
They shall all bloom in robes of light,
Transplanted by my care,
And nuiiits upon their garments white
These sacred MofMoms wear."
Mother says I am an enthusiast; she sings
that very hymn to Mabel, but when she
hears of a baby's death she only quotes what
King David eaid: "It is well with tho
Married People at Saratoga.
Sophie Sparkle" in New York Mail
Life at Saratoga is largely made up of
funny and tragical incidents upon the
piazzas. If you meet a married man he is
always looking for his wife and eagerly asks
where she is. lou may tell him the exact
spot where you last saw her, but he does not
rush off that wav in pursuit not at all.
Lat night I saw a grave and reverend
Judgu looking for his wife upon the front
piazza; she was not there, of course, and
the Judi;e was far worse off than poor old
L nele Toby, who was surrounded by the
widow. The Judge was surrounded bv
half a dozen pretty widows. What mor
tal man could bo expected to keep on look
ing for his wife under such circumstances as
those. So many wives are always on the
lookout for their husbands but somehow
they do not appear overjoyed when thev
find them, as one might expect them to be
when they ask so earnestly as to who has seen
them. But some other gentleman, perhaps,
comes along, quite as good looking, and
perhaps more affable, than the lost husband,
and tho wives aro ery much like the hus
bands in their search for the domestic delin
The following amusing examination re
cently occurred in a Court room in one of
the Blue Grass Counties of Kentucky: Gen
eral II., a prominent lawyer of that region,
was defending a prisoner charged with
horse-stealing, and the witness was swearing
as to tho identity of the stolen horse. General
11.: "How do you know this is tho same
horse?" Witness (hestatingly): 'Well, I
just know it is." General II.: -Well, how?"
Hitncss: '! can t tell exactly how. but I
know it as well as I know you, General II."
General II.: "Well, how do von know that
I am General II.?" Witness: 'Because,
just before dinner I heard Mr. C. say: 'Gen
eral 11., let s go and take a drink,' and you
went.' lhe identity was satisfactory to the
Blue Grass jury.
