Thcro wcro luinus ntid tlio odor of blossoms,
Tlio whirl of tlio waltz, mid the hciit
f Instruments tuned to fee d;'clnR;
Tlicro were tows and rcsponres sweet ;
And Into tho chaos of color
My heart went ccklng n face
That floated amid the Ray dancers
I.lkc a rose blown free In Its grace.
A gllmpss of gold trews uncoiling,
A gllmiidj of star that were eyes j
A sigh from a rpso mouth soft jKirtcd,
1 A smllo sweet with mute melodies j
And my heart lid whirled with tho waltzcrs,
And misty the lamps paled, nnd far
The music receeded, like straining
Of wave o'er an ocean's gay bar.
'lVunro sad," laughed n voice. "Come ho
Gay life Is fleeting at lct;
If you carry a heart In your bosom,
Oct rid of It, friend, with i rest."
Hut ever the music moaned by me,
And ever the face floated fair,
And ever I knew that n siren
Had lured mo to follow for o'er.
Tho lamps went out with the morning
Tho warm odors drifted away;
The music was limited, aud the dancers
in dreams of Its melody lay;
But. o'er, like n ticnutlfiil phantom,
Tlio face, hi my path, moved lu flight,
And ever I follow Its circling
From dawn till the dusk of the night.
And subtly It 'wapes from my grasping, .
Llko a dream n foul woos to stay;
And ner I feel, lu mad clasping,
A shadow thin, bloodless, aiHlfgray;
Till I cry In despair: 0 face fairest,
Grown out, like a rose, fmm a glance,
Let mo hold thco but onco to my bosom,
And death may whirl wild In his dance!

Only they grew sweeter

A HUNDRtD DOLLAR BILL.
H.wing licen Given in Miitako for One Dollar.
It has a Queer History.
A few days ngo Mrs. l'rederica Wright,
of Hank street, gave to a colored iiinn
a hundred dollar bill Instead of a one
dollar one. The negro was evidently
deceived or dishonest, for lie failed to
return the proper change. Yesterday
a colored man was arrested on tlio
charge of stealing tlio niney, but he
proved to be the wrong person nnd wns
dismissed by thu Justice Caslinie,cr.
This ease calls to mind tlio story of a
hundred dollar bill under like circum
stances, well known to the citizens of
Halliiuore. A distinguished statesman
forty years ngo wns on n visit to Haiti
more, and ho gave a colored girl what
ho supposed at lho time was n ono dol
lar bill. The next morning the girl
went to a grocery store on Liberty street
near Fayette, and after making n few
trilling purchase, gayo the bill in pay
ment, under the supposition thnt It was
n dollar. Tlio proprietor of the store,
a most respectable and highly esteemed
citizen of Haltlmore, noticed with great
surprise that it wa a hundred dollars
and lie supposed at once thattbe woman
had stolen It. Ascertaining lho delu
sion sho was tiiuler, bo Informed hor of
(he true character of the note and t
her lie would detain it until an owieu
was found. The girl told how she had
received it, and persisted that it had
not been stolen, and assented to the
gentleman retaining it until the owner
was found. Ho advertised tlio bill, and
tlio statesman, in answer, called to say
that lho girl's story was true, and that
as her honesty had been suspected she
should keep tho hill. Ho then depart
to tlio scene of his dally triumphs, and
lu the acquisition of a great fame per
haps forgot tho Incident. Tlio grocery
merchant retained tlio noto, in expecta
tion of the girl returning, but sho never
called for It, .It is supposed being fright
ened and feared being charged with its
theft. He deposited it at interest.
Years rolled on and sho married, bore
children and died, and a few years ao
a son applied to the merchant for the
note and thu interest, which now
amounted to a largo sum of money.
This amount thu custodian ol the fund
paid into ono of our city courts, iu or
der that the court should decide wheth
er or not tlio claimant was entitled to it.
The court sustained tliu claim and the
nirniev was paid to tho heir, and thus
ends ihu true story of a hundred dollar

Opposites in Matrimony.
Theodore Parker wrote: Young peo
plo inarrv their opposites in tempera
ment ami general character, and hiich
marriages are generally good ones.
They do it instinctively. The young
man does not say: "My black oyes re
quire to bo wed with blue, nudniyover
vchemenco requires to lie a littlo modi
lied with somewhat of dullness and re
serve." Whon these opposites como to
gether to lio wed they do not know it,
but each thinks tlio other just like him
self. Old people never marry their op
posites; they many tholr similars, and
lrom calcul'dion." Knoh of thoso two
arrangements is very proper. In their
long journey theso opposite will fall
out by thu way a great many times, and
charm lho other back again, and by
and by thoy will be agreed as to the
place thoy will go to. and tlio road they
will go uy, anil iioin necouie rucuiiuiiuu.
Tlio man will lie nobler and larger for

and if there bo real generosity and love

bridegroom, having n much shorter
journey to make, must nssochvte him
