SWEETHEART, SIGH NO MORE.
It icas irith doubt and trembling
I -whispered in her ear.
Go, take her answer, bird on bough,
That all the world may hear
Sweetheart, sigh no morel
Sing it, sing it, tairny throat,
Upon the wayside tree.
How fair she ia, how true she is,
How dear she is to me
Sweetheart, sigh no morel
Sing it, sing it, tawny throat,
And through the summer long
The winds among the clover top3,
And brooks, for all their silvery stops,
Shall envy you the song
Sweetheart, sigh'no morel
Thomas Bailey Aldrich in "Wyndham Towers."
A CHINA SERVICE,
It was a gala day in New Orleans; flags
and banting streamed gayly in the breeze,
the martial notes of music filled the air, and
the proud, steady tread of many feet in har
mony suggested thoughts at onco patriotic
and soul .stirring. Xhe streets,, crossings,
every available inch of spaco along the line
of march was thronged with an expectant,
sympathetic mass, whoso cheery smile broke
into a prolonged "Hurrah 1" as the brilliant
line of soldiery came in view.
What a sight it wasl That eager, enthusi
astic body of men, clad in their fresh gray
uniforms and nodding plumes, their muskets
gleaming like a solid masr of silvery light,
their swords reflecting every glint of sunlight
like a kaleidoscope's changeful rays. There
was no American or French quarter in New
Orleans that day, for national honor and
pride were at stake and native Creole and
grafted civilian laid aside race prejudices,
and with hearts throbbing in unison gathered
beneath' tho stars and bars at the southern
Down in the rue Rampart, in a mansion
that stands out upon the street, with its mas
sive front, white fluted columns and wide
spreading galleries, making it even today a
conspicuous landmark of pride in the vieux
carre, there was gathered a bright and merry
group of Creole maidens and matrons who
fluttered gayly about amid tho streaming
banners and evergreens, chattering like so
many busy magpies, or peering anxiously
down thostreetas each breathof wind wafted
the distant strains of music, or some mis
chievous lad perched in the trees around gavo
tho false alarm, "Les soldatsl les-soldats! ils
viennent, ils viemient!"
But presently tho unmistakable rush of the
crowd announced the moment of suspense
was over; far down the street could be seen
tho glittering line, far above the din of the
music could bo heard the deafening cheers,
and from pavement to balcony the air was
white with the flutter of handkerchiefs and
fragrant with the scent of roses as dainty
maidens flung bouquets or pelted with show
ers of snowy petals the soldier lads of their
choice; and many were the silent prayers as
a regiment wsll known in Louisiana annals
drew up in line before the old creole mansion
and doffed their caps, while mademoiselle,
fair and blushing, stepped from amidst her
bevy of girl friends and in the names of the
ladies of the faubourg presented them the
battle flag which was soon to bo dyed in tho
blood of its brave defenders.
But little recked they that fair spring
morning of the sorrows or horrors of war; to
them it seemed a mere child's play; a few
btrokes of their swords, a few shots and it
would all bo over, and they would return
covered with glory. They placed their hands
above their hearts, did those honest soldier
boys; they waved their helmets above their
heads, and with all the chivalry of the
knights of tho romantic ages thoy drew a
cross upon their swords and vowed to con
quer or die for their lady loves and native
Oh I tho silvery ripples of laughter and ap
plause that "burst from tho rose petaled lips
of that garden of girls; tho low -whispered
nothings that fell upon the ear as in response
to monsieur and mndarae's gracious invita
tion tho company entered and broke into de
lightful tete-a-tetes about the spacious par
lors; tho soft, tender echoes of a recorded
vow, tho gentle, smothered undertone of a
half repressed sob, when lol the great din
ing hall was thrown open and madamo, gra
cious and smiling, bade all enter and partake
of tho last breakfast of state at which many
of them were ever to assist.
Madame surpassed herself that morning in
her art of entertaining; that old dining hall
had never before worn that same aspect, and
even those accustomed to frequenting the
house habitually uttered an exclamation of
wonder and admiration as they looked upon
tho elegantly arranged table and raro and
beautiful service which adorned it.
Such cups, such plates, such exquisitely
wrought dishes of the finest royal Dresden,
each pieco a perfect study in itself, represent
ing a different design uniquely and chastely
finished. An idea of the number of pieces
that made up tho whole may be imagined
w hen it is mentioned that of tho corbeilles for
flowers alone there were sixteen, and upon
them as well as upon tho entire set the finest
aru of tho decorator had been expended in
designing trailing flowers and vines, beauti
ful views of mountains, lakes and vales,
quaint scenes from Switzerland, Moorish
castles in Spain, the Rhino by moonlight and
representations of the contemporaneous his
tory of its period.
"Ah! comme est beau! magnifiquo! belle!
admirable!" and all the prolific and expres
sive adjectives of tho Latin tongues were
called iuto requisition as tho "guests, forget
ful of proprioty or politeness in so doing,
looked at, but scarcely dared to touch the
delicate china, so exquisite, so fragile, witb
its flowering leaves and petals, that it seemed
designed only for a fairy feast and to be
touched by fairy fingers.
"There is quite a history attached to this
service," said madame, in her rippling, musi
cal French, as the graciously assigned tho
guests to their respective seats, and motioned
the well trained domestics to perform their
duties; "quite a history," sho repeated, with
pardonable pride, "a souvenir which my
family preserves with pleasure. Perhaps it
is out of place to recall it here, but since you

the 6tory. My great 'grandmother was la
premiere daaae de cempagnie to the queen of
Portugal. She was a great favorite and an
acknowledged belle at court.
f ast in her honor, and this service, used only
on tho grandest occasions, was called into
requisition. Just as you have admired it
here, so sho was struck with its beauty then,
and commented upon it to bis majesty, at
whose right hand she sat. He never did any
thing "by halves, did that gracious old king.
That very evening, while my ancestor, proud
and happy at tho honor bestowed upon her
that morning, sat in her boudoir receiving
tho congratulations of her friends, a mes
senger arrived from tho king, bearing the
identical service used at the morning's feast,
and begging that, as sho had so much ad
mired it, she would, as a favor from the
king, accept it in memory of that day."
"Ah! it is indeed something of which to be
proud!" remarked a lady who sat near.
"We seldom use it," continued madame;
"when we do a servant is never allowed to
touch it. It has been the pride of the ladies
of mv honso that thoy alone, have handled it.
and a this manner, notwithstanOing its great
age, each piece hoe been preserved intact."
"It was used last on our wedding day,"
said monsieur in a deep voice, as he looked
with pride upon his "beautiful-wife.
"Oh! yea," answered madame, blushingand
laughing, "and it will bo used again when our
daughter here will choose as wise as her
mother has done. Today," sho said, while a
tear glistened in her eye, "I have brought it
out because bb it was given by royalty itself,
so those who act in a royal manner should be
tho ones to use it. Each southern soldier who
rises to defend his country is a king in his own
To this day sho has never forgotten how
that band of creole volunteers rose to their
feet and bowed as to a queen; never forgot
ten how the blood rushed to their cheeks, how
their hearts seemed to throb with emotion,
and the gallant commander, speaking for all,
touched his sword with his lips, and vowed
they would never betray the confidence
which a woman of the south, speaking for
her sex, had that day reposed in them.
But all this was long ago; of the war, its
sorrows and disasters, this sketch deals not;
but of that old homo in the rue Rampart, of
which madamo's fair daughter is now the
mistress. Around her have grown up her
own beautiful girls, graceful, accomplished,
surrounded by all the luxuries which genera
tions of wealth bestow, and clinging more
than ever, like graceful tendrils, to the dear
historic place now when all are about to
leave it forever. For unforseen sorrows have
come upon them, on unfortunate business
venture of monsieur's has ended most dis
astrously ; thousands of dollars were involved,
creditors were clamorous, plantations, houses,
stocks, bonds, all have been sacrificed, and
still more is demanded. Monsieur's voice is
hoarse with emotion; he knows his name is
on every tonguo in New Orleans; he, the
honored and flattered merchant of yesterday,
tho ruin man of today.
Madame, seated in tho old home which has
been her inheritance in her own right, but
which she has sacrificed to save her husband's
honor, hears his story, and rising with tho
heroism born of the noble principles she in
herits, goes out and presently returns with a
casket containing all her own and her daugh
ter's jewels, and pausing a moment before
her mirror sho takes the diamonds from her
own ears and, placing them among the heap,
begs her husband to dispose of all.
He protests, but Ehe and her daughters are
insistent; what are diamonds, what are rubies
compared to a father's honor? And then
madamo remembers there is one thing moro
of value, one thing from which sho had never
intended to part, and going out again, whilo
tho girls look on affrighted and her husband
stands speechless in amazement, she brings in
piece by piece the servico of royal Dresden.
Sho points to it, her husband grasps her
meaning; but ho takes her in his arms and
kisses her, and tells her "Never! ho has no
right to allow her to sacrifice this;" he knows
how proud sho has been of it, how she has
treasured it above all her possessions, and tho
resolution it required for her to part from it;
and he, touched beyond measure, firmly re
fuses and bids her restore it to its place again.
But sho proudly draws herself to her full
height and says: "No! I -will not listen; I
have given up all my property, I have parted
from my diamonds; this, too, shall go! thd
world shall never be able to say that I re
tained a single article of value whilo my hus
band owed a debt!"
The next day a well known auctioneer of
tho rue Royalo was sent for. He is accus
tomed to such calls, is this old auctioneer, for
every day witnesses the broakingupof happy
and elegant homes. Madame shows him tho
service; his eyes gleam with a satisfaction ho
can scarco suppress, for ho knows its value;
still he pretends that it is not worth much;
ono must bo business like, you know. In a
cooL calculating way he examines it, and in
differently begins to count tho pieces; he
seems disturbed; ho goes over them again;
slowly, carefully and still a third time, with
tho same result. "Madame!" ho exclaims,
"tho set is incomplete; there are two plates
missing, where aro thoy?"
Madame turns pale. "They aro broke!"
sho replies in her imperfect English, rolling
her rs most emphatically.
"Ah," says the auctioneer, incredulously,
noting her change of countenance; "the set
loses half its value. If you can find thoso
two plates it will bo to yourintcrest todoso."
"They aro broke," sho repeats, her eyes
flashing fire, her words coming with difficulty,
"they are broke, I say!" And her daughters,
standing near, wonder at her emotion and
still moro at the temerity of tho individual
who had dared to profane by a touch, much
less to break, two pieces of that precious heir
loom. There are such realities as true friends;
hearts whom the smiles nor tho frowns of
fortune can change. Tho proposed sale of
the famous service became noised about the
faubourg and two survivprs of the okl regi
ment of soldiers, two of tho few who bad re
turned bearing the remnants of the tattered
flag, remembering the gracious trust that
madame hnd reposed in their command and
her pride on that memorable morning when
sho recounted tho history of her beautiful
servico, determined if possiblo that she should
not part from it. They accordingly devitcd
a little scheme by which they would bay it
iu, and when the talk of the failure and sale
of property had all subsided to quietly pre
sent it to madame as a mark of osteem from
tho old command, thus making it doubly
precious in her eyes.
But with a woman's quick intuition she
saw through their design ; and, though her
heart was touched by the nobibty and disin
terestedness of their purpose, sho foresaw
that however innocent in reality, tho world
w ould still say that this was only a scheme
on her part to retain possession of it, and she
kindly but firmly refused to sell it to them. ,
A few days after tho service, with all its i
proud tradition and association, passed for
ever from her hands and became tho prop
erty of a well known lady of this city.
Several squares from her old home in the
rao Rampart madame now lives. She sees
without a pang, without a sigh, tho scene of
her former triumphs and successes, the man
sion which she was so well fitted to grace,
occupied by another, though many and ele
gaut have been the entertainments which the
present proprietors have given since their oc
Ker daughters and herself, though their
gentle hands have never been accustomed to I
the most trivial labor, have meet their trials
with the courage and fortitude that so man y j
of the crcolo women of New Orleans have
displayed undar similar circumstances. Inker '
-orrows and reverses madame is more of a i
queen than she was ia tho proudest hour of
ner social triumphs; for the true woman
nature has been brought to the surface, the
deep undertone of real nobility of character
and action has burst into melody.

Mario L. Points in New Orleans Picayuno.
A liaroness' Adventure.
The pretty girl with yellow hair and dia
monds as big as apple turnovers who regis
tered at the Palmer house was Baronne von
Buren, of Paris, and the stately lady with hor
was Mrs. Thorno. The ladies were on their
way to Paris to tell their friends of a lively
escapade they had out west.
"We were in tho mountains for a few
weeks," said the baronne. "On our way, I
think it was from Cheyenne to Fort Lara
mie, we traveled a short distance by stago
coach. It was a moonlight night, but warm,
and wo had tho coach window open. I had
$10,000 worth of diamonds with me. In tho
coach were Mrs. Thorne, a Mrs. Hervey, of
Pueblo, Colo., and the wife of an English
plush manufacturer. Suddenly the stage
stopped and I looked out of the window.
"A man was standing about ten feet away.
Ho was a tall young fellow with a bandage
over the upper part of his face. Ho had a
long gun pointed at tho driver. Ho said
something, I didn't hear what, for the words
were scarcely off his lips before tho driver
fired at him from the seat avid the horses
started galloping down the road. The rob
ber made after us, firing as he came. Tho
English woman fainted, but tho Pueblo girl
screamed 'Shoot him,' and fired through tho
window at the robber.
"I had a revolver in my hand bag I had
been told to carry one in that country. I
got it out, shut my eyes and pulled the trig
ger with both hands. Did I hit? I fancy I
did not. But he, quit the chase, and Mrs.
Hervey, who was watching him, said ho
dropped his gun and grabbed his lett arm.
But, goodness, we were frightened to death.
The noise in tho stago coach was awful, and
the coach pitched from side to side like a ship
at sea. My hands were burned with the pow
der. Look," and tho baronne showed a speck
or two in the white skin with much pride and
a delightful shudder.
"I wasn't half so much afraid of th9 rob
ber as I was of you,'said Mrs. Thorne.
"Ah," laughed the baronne, "a woman's
jealousy." Chicago Tribune.
Surroundings of tho Earliest Americans.
In associating man with ancient river val
leys, we are too apt to think only of tho
stream, and ignore the surrounding country.
Though largely so, palaeolithic man was not
strictly nn amphibious creature; for instance,
on each side of tho ancient Delaware river
extended wide reaches of upland forest, and
here, too, the rude hunter of tho timo found
game well worthy of his ingenuity to cap
ture, and so powerful that all his wit stood
hira well in need to escape their equally de
termined efforts to capture him. While the
seal and walrus disported in the river; whilo
ilsh in countless thousands stemmed its floods;
whilo geeso and ducks in myriads rested upon
the stream, so, too, in tho forest roamed tho
moose, tho elk, tho reindeer, tho bison, tho
extinct great beaver, and tho mastodon, all
of which, save the elk, had long sinco left for
more northern climes when European man
first sighted North America.
The association of man and the mastodon
is somewhat startling to most people; but, as
has been time and again conclusively shown,
it is no unwarranted fancy. Wo are apt to
consider tho mastodon as a creature of so
distant a time in the unrecorded past, that
man must necessarily have appeared much
later upon the scene. Tho truth is, compara
tively speaking, tho creature so recently be
came extinct that, in all probability, our his
toric Indians were acquainted with it. Cer
tain it is that, in the distant long ago of the
great ice age, tho mastodon existed, and
equally certain that with him lived that
primitive man who fabricated tho rude im
plements wo have described. Tho bones of
tho animal and tho bones and weapons of tho
man lie sido by side, deep down in the gravels
deposited by the floods from the melting ico
sheet. Dr. C. C. Abbott iu Popular. Science
