Pretty school-girls ] rosebud maidens?
I can count from here a score,
Chattering in their youthful gladness, 4
A s they cluster at the door. I
All unconscious of her graces,
See that charming little Miss,
As she greets a waiting comrade
With a cheery morning kiss.
One has golden tresses, braided, (
Long and lustrous, tied with blue, I
With a pair of eyes to match thei I
Of the sky's cerulean hue. t
One is of the pensive order,
Drooping lids and oval face;
Some are full of wit and humor,
Some of quiet tender grace.
Ay I when taken altogether,
Grouped as one may seo them there,
Show me, friend, a diamond cluster
That with this one can compare.
Show me on the walls of genius
In the old world or the new,
Any picture half as charming
As these schoo-gih lo,sweet and true.
By-and-by they will be scattered,
By-and-by will changes come,
Each one giving up their studies
For the duties of her home.
'Tlien will ne'er, in such a tableau
As this one, again take part I
Merry school-girls ! Happy lasses!
Future mothers of the race !
How we love to watch your motions
And your sweet, unconscious grace,
How we love to smooth the tresses
On your brows, without a care;
PrayingHeaven to watch and keep you,
Guide and guard you everywhere.
COMPLETELY TURNED AROUND.
A young lady got off the train here
last Monday morning who had the
appearance of being crazy. She
was a Swiss girl and was trying to
make her way to New Switzerland,
a station some distance beyond
Central on the Air-Line Railroad,
where there is a colony of several
Swiss families.. Her parents still
live in Switzerland. She has an
aunt in New York it seems with
whom she has been living for some
time. B~ef'ore leaving New York
she was told she would have to
charge cars in Charlotte, and after
she had passed through Charlotte
anid having not chaoged as she was
expecting she would have to (10,4
she became bewildered and want
ed to turn back. She got so furi
ous by the time the train arrived
here that she persisted in getting
off notwithstanding she had a
through ticket to Atlanita. Shte
(c0uld( not speak a word of English, <
but fortunately Mr. Charley Hock.. I
er can speak German, and by that
means managed to make himself I
understood to her anid occasionally I
kept her pacified. Hearing where a
she wished to go, he boarded the I
evening train with her Monday a
evening and left for her destina
Lion. When she arrived there she
met an old lo'wer, who seemed equal,
ly as anxious to see her as she was
to see him. 'The fact~ of the puui- u
n1ess is she was following him up, i
Mr. .Hnmeker informs us that they '
are to be united in matrimony righit j
away. 'rhe trip was quite a long i
and tibying one for a young lady. 1
Her name wa Ann 1-lofing, bu.,I1
