K. A. BURNETT.
Publisher and I'roDrietor.
'Girls, we're poiu; to have such
dm!" said Ida Cohort. "Nell Evaus
has invited us all to P'ransdule, to a
ruasiiiorado party, arid you're to select
vour eositinies at once!'
There was a universal outcry of joy nt
this pronunciamento, which was shout
ed in the sweetest of silvery sopranos
from the top of a desk.
Madame Morini's young ladies were
enjoying their noon recess on this
tripiit ehttering February day, and
everybody knows what a noise twenty
school girls can make, if they choose.
"A masquerade!" said Marian Hamp
shire. "How delightful!"
"Can we select any dress wc please P"
said beautiful Miriam Holley.
"Would it he si Ion les regies to go
without any especial dress, if cue has
a fresh white niuslin?" timidly asked
Alice Appleton, whoso mother was poor
and who earned Iter own board and
tuition by giving lessons to tho smaller
"Will madame consent?" breathless
ly questioned Louiso Hayward.
"Madame will consent to anything
that Nell Evans chooses to ask," tri
umphantly announced Ida Colton.
"Nell was one of madame' s graduates,
you know, and a pattern damsel in all
respects. And if Nell were to request
that we should all attend her masquer
ado costumed in pink tinsel, and walk
ing on our heads, madame would say,
Quite right, my dear, a very sensible
idea of yours. I shall be delighted to
have my young ladies go.' "
There was a gentle laugh at this, and
then commenced tho joyful task of se
lecting personalities, studying up tho
costumes in old engravings and nntiquo
fashion plates, and turning over tho
combined stores of the whole school,
in sash-ribbons, artificial flowers, jew
els, and plumes.
For although the graduating class,
which alone was invited, consisted of
only eight young ladies, the interest
concerning Miss Evans' masquerade
parly was disseminated through tho
whole school in no measured degree.
And Alice Anideton's t'cntlo heart in
particular beat with innocent anticipa-

that Captain Hugo Evans, the brother
of the pretty hostess, had looked upon
her with a tenderer glance than he
vouchsafed to tho other young ladies
of his acquaintance.
To bo sure sho had no party-dress,
but the individuality suggested by Mi
riam Hoiley, "A Snowilake," would bo
sufliciently'interpreted by her simplo
muslin gown, with a few of the starry
white flowers of tiio Catalonian jas
mine in her hair.
"But you're not going to let those
girls go alone?" said Miss Polly Prout,
who was Madame Morini's cousin,
housekeeper, and chief counselor.
"Certainly I am!" said Madame Mo
ri ni. "Why should I not? It is only
to dear Neli's house."
"It wouldn't bo at all proper!" said
Miss Polly, pursing up her thin lips,
and the hearts of the eight young girla
sank simultaneously into their boots.
"Such a party of giddy girls with no
responsible companion! Madame Mo
rini, I wonder at you! It would not bo
allowable, unless indeed "
"Unless what?-' said Madame Morini,
and the eight lasses lintened breath
lessly for Miss Polly Prout's reply.
"Unless I am to go, too, as their
chaperon," said Miss Polly.
"Oh that wouldn't be according to
etiquette, cried thu girls in chorus;
"Nell didn't invite Miss Polly Prout."
"Will you be silent, young ladies!"
said Miss Polly, rapping on the desk
with a wooden ruler, in a sort of auto
cratic way of hers, which the girls es
pecially disliked. "Madame Morini
certainly cannot have given the matter
due consideration, or she would at
once perceive tho impropriety of the
And Madame Morini, who was an
amiablo easy-going lady, governed in
most matters by her cousin's energetic
will, finally gave way, and announced
her conviction that Miss Polly Prout
"I can put on my green gown and a
tin-foil-covered helmet, and "-o as 'Mi

then I can keep niv eves on the young
ladies all the uvmiu
"M bat havo wc done that a spy
should be set upon our actions?" said
Ma Colton indignantly, when they
were by themselves.
"Minerva, indeed!" cried Marian
Hampshire, with a proUusion of her
plump chin and a screwing of her cher
ry month so exactly in imitation of
Miss Polly Prout that all the girls burst
at once into a spasmodic giggle.
"Hateful, forward thing!" sputtered
Louise Hayward. "Why, she'll spoil
every bit of our fun!"
"How dure kIiu obtrude herself, un
invited, upon Nell Evans?" said Miri
"She sbaVt come," said laughing
Kato Kelsey; "sho shall never cross

The next week was one of glad pre
paration ror tiie lortlieoming event,
and no one was mom difficult to please
or more exacting in her selection of
materials, and her ceaseless calls upon
tho aid of tho young ladies, than Miss
" roily Prout, who ordered a new "banz
of glossy chestnut hair for the occasion
which would have been quite perfect
if it had matched her black braids a
litutj more exactly, and had a pair of
green satin sanuais maile by tho vil
lago shoemaker, and a pole gilded to
represent a spear oy the plcture-framo
"One likes to observe tho niceties,
said Miss Polly, while in her middle
aged mind rose up the delusive idea
that perhaps soiuo mature masqtter
ader of the opposite sex might perceive
in her souio greater attraction than tho
youthful roses and girlish graces of tho
eight graduating girls.
"Stranger things have happened,"
complacently thought Miss Polly, as
she stitched away at the satin rosettes
which were to modernize her green
But in spite of all her precautions,
the first sleigh-load of laughing girls
6tarted without her, while she was
tying her fur hood over the tin-foil
"What, gone already?" said Miss
Prout angrily. "Why didn't they wait?
What right had they to go off without
"Don't mind, Polly," said Madame
Morini soothingly. "Eight was all tho
sleigh could carry besides the driver.
Michael says his orders wero to bring
tho cutter for you."
"Orders!" shrilly repeated Miss Pol
ly. "But whoso orders? Does Kato
Kelsey manage this institution, or do
I? and you? Mo crowd into a cutler,
indeed with a staring, Irish lad like
Michael to drive! A prettv arrange
ment!" But in spite of her indignation, Miss
roily Prout was compelled finally to
accede to tho obnoxious plan.
"Drive quickly, Michael," she said
to her young Jehu, "for it's getting
dark already, and I don't at all like
the woods that we have to go through.
Why on earth those girls couldn't have
But the jinglo of the sleigh-bells, and
the sudden start of the horse, brought
Miss Prout's sentence to an untimely
termination, and away they went over
the frozen road.
Not far, however. Just within the
darksome limits of the cedar woods,
when tho pin pie dusk that still linger
ed in tho open lields seemed turned to
tho gloom of absolute night, a tall
white iigurc, with a black mask cover
ing its face, stepped forward and seized
the horse's head, while, partially hid
den by the drooping evergreen boughs,
a little group of other figures lingered!
"Burglars!" shrieked Miss Polly
Prout, dropping Minerva's gilded spear
into tho snow. "Assassins! Masked
robbers! Oh, kind gentlemen, spare,
spare my life, and all my jewelry is
And tearing her gold-plated bracelet
from her wrist she Hung that and her
watch into the road.
"Arrah, the saints betnne us and all

lad, as he cowered dow n in the bottom
of the sleigh.
"Descend, and depart!" uttered a
deep voice, "look behind you at your
"Wh where shall wo go?" stuttered
"To the place whence you came!"
was tho stern reply. "And, at the risk
of your lives, be speedy and secret."
As Miss Polly stumbled, more dead
than alive out of the cutter, she was
turned briskly round by the shoulders,
so that sho was facing the winding
road by which they had come, while
Mickey found himself spinning round
ami round, a few steps farther on, like
"Depart!" onco moro uttered tho
warning voice, and Miss Prout and
Mickev, clinging wildly together plod
ded away in an agony of terror.
Halt an hour afterward the luckless
pair arrived, half frozen, and worn out
with fatigue, at tho Moriui Institute,
with a gruesome tale of having been
arrested by masked robbers, and hav
ing only escaped by the most marvel

The gardener and two neighboring
men wero at once detailed in pursuit of
the robbers, but when they reached the

Miss Pollv Prout transformed herself
into a heroine tho next day, as sho re
lated her adventures.
"And so you weren't stopped,' said

CAIRO BULLETIN: THURSDAY MORNING MAY
A Virginia Homnnce.
Whilo visiting un old friend in a Vir
ginia villnge a month ago I attended
worship ouo Sunday at tho parish
church, and was very r.ni h attracted
by an aged arid handsome couple who
sat in the pew opposite me. Tno pas
tor preached a very interesting sermon
on "the Prodigal Sons Koturn,"
which, 1 noticed, alleclod the old lady
to tears, ana nau a marxou enect on
the gentleman. I mentioned the cir
cumstance that evening to my friend,
when sho related to mo tho following
sad, truo story: 1
The old couple wero Mr. and Mrs.
Colonel D . They wero both of tho
most aristocratic, wealthy families of
Virgiuia. Colonel 1) - was an hon
orable, upright gentleman, but very
proud and passionate. Ho had one
son, "(us, ' his only heir a warm
hearted, generous, pleasing young man,
just turning his twonty-Jirst year. He
was well known throughout tho coun
try, and was beloved by all who knew
him. Do inherited his father's pride
um uui nis vioieui. nature.
At . - II t , 1 ,
auuui a uiue itom iOionoi jj g
residenco lived a gentleman between
whoso family and the Colonel's a feud
of long standing existed. Colonel
1) had frequently warned his son
not, under any , circumstances, to visit
any member of the gentleman 8 family,
A daughter of tho hatod house, on her
eighteenth birthday, gave a large partv.
to which all tho young people were in
vited, including the venerable Colonel a
son Gus. On hearing of tho party and
his sou s invitation to it, he sent for
him and most positively forbado him to
attend. 1 ho son promised ho would
The invitations wero forfour o'clock,
as a supper on tho lawn was a part of
the programme. About three o'clock
on that day Gus called for his team, a
spleudid pair of hi ndsonio grays, and
ordered tho coachman to drive him.
Some time after his departure, Colonel
D , who had been away since morn
ing, returned, and on asking for his
son was informed that ho had driven
out a couple of hours ago. Tho Colonel
Hew into a passion, called for his hunt
ing whip, mounted his horse and rode
swiftly toward the mansion of his
neighbor. As ho dashed rapidly
past he saw his son's team under tho
trees, and cared for by his own coach
man. He kept on to a small shady
lane leading in an opposite direction
from the house, when he suddenly came
upon his son walking with a young
lady, and, without a word, he rode up,
seized him, and cut him several times
over the face and back with his ridino
whip "You ungrateful scoundrel,"
said he, "never cross my path again."
The Colonel's face was white with pas
sion as he rode away.
This happened over fifteen years ago
and although thousands of dollars have
been spent, and every effort mado to
iind some trace of the missing man,
they have been ineffectual, and not one
person who knew him before has ever
seen his face since that day. The sad
truth was that the Colonel's son, it was
found afterwards, had not gone to the
party, but loaned his team to a yc-uno
friend to whom both his father an3
himself were warmly attached, and
who drove Gus as far as the lane where
his father had met and chastised him in
the presence of her whom beloved, and
whom he had accidentally met. I'iila-
Hasten as a l'oeirr Mill.
To write poetry is merely consider
ed, in Boston, as an elegant accom
plishment suitable to the litterateur,
ami less a special gilt than the natural
and expected result of scholarship and
culture. Tho charming assumption
with which a society or meeting of any
description designates its members to
write a poem on such and such an oc
casion is infinitely amusing. "Why
did you not come U) the literary
coterie?" questioned a friend the other
day. "Mrs. Dias and Mrs. Anagnos
wrote poems for tho evening, and we
had a philosophical paper and tab
leaux." This was an illustration of the
Boston nonchalance regarding "writing
poems." It is discussed iu a matter of
fact way, as an affair quite of industry
rather than of inspiration. If the
birthday or wedding anniversary of a
prominent person is to be celebrated;
a fair gotten up; an exhibition opened,
or tho "Old South" receive another
contribution toward saving it from tho
destructive march of trade, the insti
gators of the affair all write poems as
a natural feature of tho entertain
ment. Though tho so-called "pocnis" are
numerous, tho poets are few, yut these
rhymers and versifiers all enroll them
selves under that banner and enjoy the
felicity of their belief. The genuine
poets of Boston are almost as few as of
any other city. Longfellow, Lowell,
Whittier, Emerson, Louise Chandler
Motiltou, who has a rift of the almost
perfect lyric verse; John Boyle O Ke.il
ly, Dn Holmes and Mrs. Howe, in her
"Battle Hymn of tho Republic," and
"Sealed Orders," mako up all that 1
now recall who seem to have any claim
to poetic immortality. Yet tho peoplo
who grind out their poems to, on and
for every occasion are as numerous as
tho prose writers. Voluino after vol
ume is published hero of mere prosaic
prose that rhymes, and is labeled I
camo near saying libeled poetry.
What becomes of it is a mystery 1 can
not fathom. Where do all tho dull
books go to, anyway, ouo wanders?
Tho number of volumes of "poems"
that contain, perhaps, ono that really
merits tho uame and retains thu whole,
is a signal advance over those that
havo nothing in them but mechanical
rhyme. It is singular that in a city
which may, perhaps, not unaptly bo
designated" as the literary capital of tho
country, there is so marked a lack of
lino literary discrimination. Form
moro than spirit, quantity moro than
quality, appears to take procedeiico,
To "publish a volume of poems" is as
much the part of the natural expecta
tion ns to read tho current literaturo
and attend the symphony concerts.
Whether tho poems nre worth publish
ing is a consideration that does not
seem to present itself. Jlo.iton Cor.
A Minnesota paper has dedicated it
self to the "abolition of poverty, igno
rance, wickedness, unchastity, drunk
enness, injustice, perversion of law,
oppression and evil."
On a Cuban Hallway,
Presently an angular miininiilied no.
pro, who has been frequently passing
through the train and making himself
generally con-picuotis, rings a dinner
bell w hich he holds in his hand, and
this is the signal to leave. You might
havo imagined that this bell-man was
connected wiili tho station, and not a
part of the apparatus; but that is an
error and at every station thereafter,
when the dinuer-bell rang on the plat
form at the rear end of tho train, tho
engineer always obeyed tho signal.
Tho train carries three classes of
passengers, the third class in front and
tho first class in iho rear. The only
difference is in the seating of tho car,
there being no cu-hions on tho second
and third clas-, and no backs othu
seats of the latter.
The road is a narrow .gunge, but "it
moves rapidly enough, and there aro
no vexatious delays. Many of tho sta
tions are fenced in with barbed wire,
so that any ono wishing to defraud tho
railroad company, passes out nt tho
wrong station, or having purchased a
ticket for a certain place to which thero
is cheap fare, tries to get off where tho
fare is dear, ho can be certainly de
tected. The regulation of tho rates
depends perhaps upon thu opposition
tho road may have, and tho rates aro
strangely unjust. It is cheaper, for
inst nee, to buy a ticket through to
Havana, than it is to purchase ono to a
certain point not quite half-way. It
may be possible, too, that the road dis
criminates against certain points, as
such a thing as that hits been known
even in the Slates. llavuua Cor. I'Uli'
