One evening in the earlv summer of
1840 crowds of people, representing the
flower of metropolitan Society, Were pass
ing through the portals of the old Park
theater, then the Mecca of the theater
going portion of the city's population.
The attraction at the Park was Fanny
Ellslerj the pet of royalty and nobility
of Europe and the rival of the great
As the crowd of fashionably attired
ladies and gentlemen swept into the thea
ter a little girl of 13, with a profusion of
ebon ringlets and eyes to match, stood in
the vestibule and sold Bowers. As her
little fingers deftly hunched the fragrant
buds a graceful young lady stepped from
her equipage, accompanied by a gentle
man, nnd imssed into the theater. As
tlie proud maid walked by the little flow
er girl the latter gently laid hold of her
skirt and holding n redolent bouquet be
fore ber. "Buy a bouquet, lady, she
said in a pleading voice. ,
'Hands off, you little ragamuffin! ex
claimed the lady, and she recoiled in
stinctively from the little figure that
stood pleading before hpr.
The eyes of the little flower, girl snap
ped fire, as, with clinched hand and grit
ted teeth, she watched the retreating fig
ures of the aristocratic pair, and then her
resentment found vent in a Hood of tears.
A few days subsequent to this event
the little girl was hawking her fragrant
wares m n fashionable quarter of the city,
and, by way of varying the monotony of
her occupation, she sang a childish song
in such an entrancing voice as to draw
quile an audience about her. An old
man, lowed with the weight of many
winters, stood on the walK and eagerly
drank in the melody that fell from her
lips. "lis eyes flashed behind his gold
rimmed spectacle-, and, lingering until
the crowd hnd departed, he put some sil
ver into the hand of the little singer and
said in broken English:
"What is your name, my child? Mein
Qott! hut yon sing divinely."
The child looked at her aged interlocu
tor with a timid expression, but, seeing
nothing but admiration and benevolence
portrayed on his wrinkled visage, she
"Jly name is Lizzie, sir."
"Lizzie what, my child? Have you jio
other name?" said the old man", placing
a hand on her head.
"Jlrs. Moloney always calls me Lizzie,
sir, and I don't know what's my other
"Who are your parents and where do
"I have no parents, sir. I lives with
Mrs. Maloney and I sells flowers."
The old man elicited I he information
from the child that she was an orphan
and lived-v.-ith a Mrs. Maloney in a tene
ment in Anthony street. The old musi
cian, for such he was, was one of the
foremost professors of his art in Europe,
and was in this country on professional
business. He had, with the ear of a true
critic, discovered a veritable rara avis, in
in a musical sense, in this ragged child.
The following day the old professor
slowly climbed the stairs of the tenement
in which Mrs. Maloney lived, and beard
ed that estimable lady in her domicile.
The honest old Irish woman told the mu
sician that Lizzie was left in her charge
by a' lady who sang on the stage and
who regularly paid her board until she
was about 5 years old, 'when the remit
tances suddenly ceased, owing, she sub
sequently learned, to the death of the
lady. Xo oue ever came to claim the
child, and, being top poor to support her,
she sent her out to sell flowers.
The old professor induced Mrs. Ma
loney to part with the child by promising
that she would be educated and brought
up as one of his family. The old woman
had forgotten the lady's name and conse
quently the child's.
The little warbler was taken abroad
and placed under .the tutorship of the
great masters, and ere soven years had
gone by she had electrified the greatest
capitals of the world under the name of
Mme. Wintermeycr. This was the name
of her benefactor. She sang in Her Ma
jesty's theater in London, and the queen
presented her with a necklace. The Count
von Dantzic sued for and won her hand
early in her operatic career, and she pos
sessed large estates in Westphalia, con
ferred by her husbandwho was a favor
ite at court.
One evening during the operatic season
in Paris the opera house was crowded
with ns distinguished an audience as wai
ever gathered within a theater to see
Mine. Wintermeyer, the Countess von
Dantzic, appear in Eugene" Scribe's opera
of "Robert le Diable." The stalls were
crowded with nobility, and royalty occu
pied "one of the boxes. Among the dis
tinguished audience were a lady and
gentleman, who intently .watched the
performance and were loud in their
praise of the famous cantatrice.
"My dear Paul, the countess is abso
lutely divine," exclaimed the lady during
a lull in the performance.
"Yes, and I hear," answered the gen
tleman, "thnt madame is as brilliant a
conversationalist as she is a singer."
"Paul," continued the lady, "I am de
lighted at having an opportunity to be
presented to madame, the countess, at her
salon this evening."
"Our minister is certainly very kind,
Miriam, in granting tin such a favor, as
one "meets such brilliant people at ma
dnme's conversaziones," was the rejoin
der After the opera the salon of the Coun
tess von Dantzic was crowded with wits,
noblemen, actors and literary people.
Madame had scarcely greeted her guests
when the American minister entered and
presented a lady and gentleman who ac
companied him to the countess. "Mr.
and Mrs. Paul Shirley 'of New York,"
exclaimed the minister.
"I am always delighted to see Anieri-
Lcans, said the hostess, but 1 tried to
sell a bouquet to this lady once in the
vestibule of the Park theater in New
York, and she called me a litttle creature,
I believe. But I was.a ragged child then
and nm dying to know if the lady is still
of the same opinion."
The lady blushed, stammered and tried
to speak, but the countess laughed, nnd
Lizzie was revenged. New York News.

Xothinjr like Bar-Ben has ever
been known before in the history of
modern remedies. The most com-
Elicated and aggravated of cases,
eretofore considered incurable,
yield instantly to the wonderful cur
ative properties of tin's new discov
ery. -Bar-Ben is as different from
an vthinir and every thine else as day
is from night. The effects differ
from the effects of other so-called
sexual remedies, in that it is not a
stimulant, but a BLOOD, XERTE
and BRAIN BUILDER. It creates
solid flesh, muscle and strength, and
infuses new vigor and vitality "into
tiie weak, nervous, broken-down
system, while its effects are quickly
apparent, and as astonishinjrjaK they
are lasting. The testimony of thous
ands of men and women whom it lias
lifted from a helpless condition of
long suffering, tells the tale of this
discovery more effectually than
words can portray.

Complexion and Hair Specialists.
The brilliant complexions of women in the more exclusive circles of New
York society are not explained by the theory that associates beauty and idle
ness. In fact, many leaders of the world of fashion are hard workers. Yet
they keep their good looks even when they are old. How do they manage
it? THE MISSES BELL, of 78 Fifth Avenue, New York, themselves con
nected with.some of the rost noted and honored, families in the metropolis,
have answered the question. They have prepared for the use of women in
general, five preparations for improving the complexion and the hair.
The Hisses BELL'S
i is an external application, the presence
( of wlrich on the face cannot be detected.
( It is perfectly harmless even to the most
delicate skin. It is a sure and quick
cure for all roughness and eruptions.
( It acts on the skin as a tonic, producing
a naturally pure complexion. Cosmetics
merely hide blemishes. The Tonic gets
rid of them.
t It removes pimples, freckles, black-
( heads, moth patches, liver spots, eczema, ,
redness, oiliness and all discolnrations)
land imperfections of the skin.

soft and lustrous. It is espeetallr help-)
fuLto persons whose hair is thin, dry and 1
liable to fall out. The tonic cleanses)
the skin about the roots of the hair : will 1
soon cover bald spots with a handsome)
I growth. Trice, SI a bottle.
HAIR TONIO X
The Misses BELL'S SKIN FOOD
is a soft, creamy, exquisitely perfumed ointment, which helps the action of the Tonic,
and, in mild cases of roughness, redness, pimples, etc., is a cure in itself. It clears the
pores of the skin of all impurities and. feeds it by building up the texture and making
the flesh beneath it solid and firm. Price, 75 cents per jar.
