A WIFE'S LAMENT.
I know a mountain, high and grand,
And seamed with chasms dark and deep;
Dark, stem, magnificent! it stands
And guards the liamlet at its feet,
Tlirough cloud, and fog, and morning mist,
Unmoved by tempest, storm, or lime:
And when the sun its brow has kissed
It smiles with radiance sublime !
The fertile valley lies below
Clothed in her shimmering summer dress,
And smiles up to the gray, coJd rock
That guards, but stoops not to caress.
I know a face, a kingly face,
That towers high above my own
An artist's eye, a form of grace,
A poet's soul, a heart of Gtone!
He stands unmoved by praise cr blame,
With conscious iowcr and mind compL'to
He lives for labor, art and fame,
Kor heeds the offerings at his fret.
I'd give the woill were I the S;m
To kiss to smiles that haughty face,
And sec the lightning glance of love
Lijht up those eyes with tender grace.
I nestis mutely at hi-s feet,
lie shields mo from the storms of life;
I bring him offerings puro and sweet
A worshiping, devoted wife.
But, ah! Lis heart, once all my cv. n,
ForgLto Ih gracious tenderness
Of bygon Ci :y .. I sit alone,
He ?;-'-"''' b':t stoopi not to caress.

There v.'iit asi amusing scene at Music ball,
Boston, tho f-.thcr evening. A party of ladies
and EcnUciue.i, coming in a little lato, seated
themselves at a tablo at which one solitary
middle-aged man of comfortable exterior but
gravo demeanor had already placed himself.
The solitary man had a rather heavy tolerably
handsome face, with a mustache combed
north and south instead of east and west, and
a bang descended gracefully a part of tho
way dor.il hL forehead, which vras surmount
ed with iron gray hair. His figuro was full
and rather short, and ho wore a neat suit of
plain Scotch goods. Tliero was nothing about
him to attract attention. Ho was just an or
dinary, good-looking sort of man, who acted
as though bo had como solely to hear tho
music, but who sipped a little of his Rhino
wino now and then to save himself from tho
conspicuous:!-! of drinldng nothing. Tho
party of newco.ners fairly .surrounded the

FHE EXTRAVAGANT COST OF KEEP
ING YACHTS IN COMMISSION.
An Estimate of the Expense as Viewed
From tho Standpoint of Moderation.
Wliat Taclitina ITai in Common Willi
It has been said that it cost the owner 310,
DOO to Loop tho Huron in commission during
tho yachting season. This statement has led
many people to wonder whether such an out
lay is customary among yachtsmen.
There arc fow yachtsmen who devote them
selves entirety to their vessels during tho sea
son, so it must fellow that many other pleas
ures occupj' their leisure summer time, to Fay
nothing of the remaining eight or nine months
of tho year. In order to keep up tho came
monetary pace in all tho festivities which en
sue between Xcw Year s and Christmas, tho
$10,000 yachtsman should have an income of
not less than $100,000, provided ho has any in-
i tention of living within Eis resources or of
accumulating ajiest egg.
( ESTIMATING THi: COST.
! J3oslo:i yachtsmen arc not, as v. rule, so cx
j travagaut as their New York brethren, and
I many of them seem to think that unless a
man is prodigal in his salt water hospitality
J he should bo able to weather tho season with
j out crossing tho ?-;,000 line. ''The Huron's
owner must have thrown a good deal of his
! money overboard if his boat cost him 10,000
every year,'' said a gentleman who owns one of
the largest and best known yachts in eastern
waters, and as tho unhappy proprietor of tho
Huron had not the reputation of an extrava
gant hoot there would seem to be a great deal
of truth in this assertion.
A vessel like tho Huron could bo launched
complete, according to tho statements of tho
leading builders in this section of the country,
at a cost of from 520,000 to 2.1,000 at most.
The jolly tars on board would number cigtit
or uino men beforo the mast, a captain, a
mato, n cool;, a steward and perhaps a cabin
boy. The pay of the crew will average about
fUO 2ci' month for each ordinary seaman,
from SoO to 100 ier month for the captain,
from .10 to 75 for tho mate, and, according
to tho epicurean tastes of tho owner, tho
cook's wages would range from that of tho
heave-o'-my-timbers tar to that of tho gallant
and gold-laced captain. .Some yacht owners
who are inclined to ''put on style,'' will select

NO END TO THE EXPENSE.
Adding this to tho cost of tho "keep," and
bringing tho total up fo SGOO, wo have the
um of 81,800 as the season's expenditure for
the crew. Placing it at ?2,000, tho allowance
is liberal indeed.
But yachting has thi- in common with
housekeeping, that on" never knows whero
his expense will cease. There is always some
thing to be bought, whether it lx?so:no adorn
ment for tho cabin or some supplement to tho
rig. Accident to the canvas, collision, bump
ing upon shoals, tho huudred and one mishaps
which befall nautical locomotion, and tho va
rious causes for frequent "hauling up"' on tho
stocks, pile up the outgo of dollars. Theso

I every day in the wci'k. Considering the fact,
however, that lew Boston yacht owners live
o:i board their sloops or schooners, and that
still fewer I:-op open house for an army of
acquaintances, it is difficult to understand
how a man could lhul a:i outlet for tho sum
which he is said to have expended. Boston

Vercschagin. tho distinguished llussiau
painter, in tho course of somo reminiscences
of his friend Skoljcleff, notes that tho general
was very superstitious. Skobcleff had made
him a present of the flag under which ho had
gained twenty-two victories. It was inado of
red silk, with a yellow cross embroidered in
the middle, and it was torn by man' bullets.
On leaving for his last Turkestan expedition,
Skobeleir remembered the flag and asked bis
friend either to give it back to him or to scud
him another iu exchange. Madam Vcrcs
chagin nude an elaborate new flag, which
was greatly admired on its arrival in the
camp both by tha general nnd his men. ''But
Skobelcff was just then unsuccessful. Tho
enemy made a sortie from Geok Tepe, took ti
number of arms, a camion and a flag. Sko
belcff was in despair. 'Give mo tho old flag
back; tho now ono is unlucky,' ho wrote to
me. I gavo nothing back. Another sortie,
another defeat, and considerable losses. An
other appeal: 'Give back, give back my lucky
ilag; take the ono away which has no luck."
Still I did not give it back. Finally, Geok
Tepo was taken, largo numbers of the enemy
were killed, and nn abundanco of arms nnd
baggago fell i.ito tho triumphant general's
hands. My tlag regained its favor. Skobelcff

ITS BIG DAY.
SUNDAY'S HEGIRA TO THE CONEY
Scenes at the Manhattan, Oriental and
Brighton Iloteld Industrious Takirs
and Strong-Lunged Money MakersA
Few of the "Attractions."
When the Brighton hotel was reached the
reporter found that a good many of the chairs
on tho piazza were already occupied. Staid
old gentlemen were reading their papers and
mothers, with then youthful charges, wero
walking up and down or gazing at tho craft
of all kinds, whoso white sails contrasted in a
pleasing manner with tho deep bluo of the
ocean. At the pavilion all was life and bus
tle. Scores of people, men, women and chil
dren, disported themselves among tho
breakers, wMch wero nono of tho gentlest,
and the shouts and badinage of tho bathers
proved that they wero thorougMy en joying
themselves. At the Manhattan more aecorum,
or perhaps stiffness, among tho holiday
makers was noticeable, and this feature in
tensified itself at tho Oriental, where every
thing was suggestive of solidity and eminent
propriety pointed tho way. Sleek merchants
dozed in their chairs or walked about in the
grounds, givinjf to each other stray bits of
news from the commercial world. There
wero foreigners there, too, principally Eng
lishmen, who, attired in unspeakable gar
ments, were "taking a turn'' before lunch.
Soon after 1 o'clock the real influx of tho
day began. Train after train deposited its
living freight and hurried back to tho city for
more. The seats in front of the band stand
were rapidly filled, as were those which com
manded a good view of the sea. Tho waiters
awoke or were aroused from their lethargy,
and were soon busily engaged in waiting up
on tho hungry guests. The white-aproned
barkeepers girded themselves for tho fray,
and drew countless glasses of beer which they
placed on ice to await the coming of tho ever
thirsty throng. At tfioO o'clock the cast end
was seen at its best. The grounds of tho
Manhattan nnd Oriental presented tho appear
ance of a vast panorama, in wMch all tho
figures were those of wcU dressed ladies and
gentlemen. Hardly a tablo at cither cara
vansary was unoccupied," mid the rain of
money mlo the casmer's till was unceasing.
BACK TO BRIGHTON.
Jumping into ono of the cars of what is
known as the "Bonanza'' railroad, possibly
from its excellent paying qualities, the 're
jx)rter was rushed back to Brighton, not be
fore he had undergone a thorough ducking,
however, by reason of the waves wasMng
over tho canvas breastworks which arc sup
posed to guard passengers from old Neptune's
assaults. At the Brighton ono might, to uso
a common expression, have walked on tho
heads of tho assembled multitude, so thickly
were individuals packed together. A fair
business was being done there, but not nearly
so large iu volume as ono might naturally
have expected. The railroad takes down its
thousands and lands them right in tho hos
telry, where everything that the heart of man
desires, in tho way of eating and drinking,
may be found. It is a fact, however, that
about 000 out of every one of theso thousands
seem to bo on tho lookout for an unusually
cheap table, and either wander off to tho west
end, after listening for a timo to the strains
of the bond, or return to the city, without
having expended a cent.
The gentlemen who announce with more or
less distinctness, that the ride to tho West end
can le enjoyed by anybody for the ridicu
lously low sum of fivo cents, were all at their
posts when tho reporter, after staving in tho
top of his hat, succeeded in seating himself in
one of the low-roofed vehicles, by courtesy
called stages. During tho fow minutes' rido
an opportunity was afforded of watching tho
crowds of people who dotted the beach or
strolled along tho edgo of tho Concourse. No
one seemed to bo in a huny and the utmost
good nature was apparent on every side.
When tho West End proper was reached, it
seeined as if one had been transported from a
monastery into the middle of a fair of the
most noisy type. On every side enterprising
speculators chanted the praises of then rc-
tjiective commodities or institutions, and as-1
surcd the passing public that now was a
chance of tasting viands and beholding curi
osities which might possibh not occur again
i:i a lifetime.
aee bOi'.Ts ov l'Ainna.
On one side was a burly fakir who called
attention to the characteristics of tho '-pig
f ami lady"' and referred in a casual manner
to tho gentleman whose only sustenanco was
broken glass, while on the other was a shrill
voiced German who kept on asserting that his
establishment was tho on!y placo where tho
genuine hot sausago could bo enjoyed in all
its pungent flavor. Tho air resounded with
tho weird shrieks of tho calliope, tho extrav
aganzas of cornet and trombono artists, and
1 tho pepping of tho shooting gallery rifles.
Flying horses, camels, swans and beasts of
wondrous formation all had their ridors, malo
and female, who lunged furiously with short
swords at the supended iron rings, and who
rarely, if ever, boro them off. A man with
a club incited two dropsical goats attached to
a miniature carriage to make somo pretense
to speed, much to the delight of a couple of
youngsters seated in the aforesaid veMcle.
Wiloy touts attached to photograph gal
leries lay in wait for victims and reiterated
the announcement that a whole family group
could hi reproduced for a quarter of a dollar.
In the so-called concert halls men and women
who labored under tho delusion that they
v.cro singing murdered popular melodies for
tho delectation of not oyer critical, beer
drinldng audiences, and youths clad in
tawdry tights sprinkled sand on thestaj-es
and danced with a wild abandon such as is
seen in no other place.
The further west ono ventured tho more
he regretted his imprudence. On every sido
he was beset. One pirate suggested that ho
should test his lungs, another ran at Mm with
a mallet, such as Thor might have used, and
besought him to pound a peg in tho ground
with a view to testing his strength; another
whispered that he had a chance to buj seven
smuggled cigars for a quarter, while still an
other took him by tho arm and insisted on ex
plaining the merits of an article, by tho use of
which mi old sock could be easily transformed
into a stylish necktie. The number of tho
bandits who ply their trade in this part of the
Island is truly legion, and lucky is the man
who, having ventured among them, escapes
with his money intact or a whole skin. As
night came on and when myriads of gaudy
lamps were lit the revelry redoubled its license
and scenes were enacted which ono cannot
even refer to. Brooklyn Eagle.
