THE A NTI -SLA
VERY BUGLE.
Miscellaneous.
From the Metropolitan Art Journal.
WHAT'S IN A NAME.
A HIGH LIFE TRAGEDY.
BY ONE WHO WAS THERE.
PART I.
Mend was the child of ii Wall-Street Bear,
Old Benjamin Urown, the billionaire,
Who 0101 stock upon stock and share upon share,
And Maud was his-only daughter and heir, '
A true republican prince. . -: . '
List tenth of June eho was just nineteen,
Delicate, beautiful, bright, serene,
With thai half-haughty, half indolent nicin,
Which the true good blood evinces.
, It was richly worth a poet's while i ' ,
To trudge for many a wear; mile
To meet the light of her careless smile,
Or for any who wished to see the style
Of the latest proinennde dresses.
To be up town of a pleasant dny,
And see Miss Mai d on her gliding way, -When
shopping, church, or visits to pay,
Called out the heiress in rich array ;
) Oh, all was bright, but subdued display,
a From the mantle of luce and robe boqiict,
" ' To the glratn uf her ebon tresses,
The beggar-boys and the sweeping girls,
Artists and merchants and foreign earls,
Newsboys and dandies and miserly churl?,
All ata.ro at her jewels and silks and curls,
As she the banner of prido unfurls,
Which right d:iintily ehe carries.
She seemed a kind of wonderful thing,
Angelic, enchanting, and glittering,
With a step like the wave of a Pori'a wing,
And a hat three weeks frcru Paris.
These lookers-on might easily mark,
The pride which lurked like a starry spark,
In the languishing eyes, so warm and dark,
Half hid by their indolent lashes.
But they eould forgive both pride and scorn,
In a fair young girl so regally born ;
And a sneer is of half its harshness shorn,
From a lustrous eye when it Cashes.
Her faint half-smile was cold and sweet
As Taylor's ice cream, and ber little feet,
With arching instep, and ankles petite,
Were shod like Ciodorilla's.
To her hands her snowy mouchoir cleaves,
Like the silvery film which a spider weaves.
Hung from the points of the slender leaves
. Of a pair of fragrant lillies.
Benjamin Brown, the billionaire,
;. Was a man the city could not well spare ; '
For, though bo was only its biggest bear,
He had of its treasures tho lion's share,
It sounded well, both abroad and there,
The name of Brown the Broker.
' But bis daughter couldn't abide the name,
She wished some grand cognomen to claim,
.. And when dull Brown to her red lips came,
She secretly feared it would choke her.
Benjamin Brown was a self made man J .
With pins and needles his sharpness began,
And the thread of his fate rather roughly raD,
; Until he hit on an excellent plan
' ! For enlarging bis sphere of action.
? He induced bis friends their names to lend,
.And purchased on time, and at the end "
He failed ; and making a dividend,
He give himself four fifths to spend, -
While creditor find eotiGuiiig friend
Got the remaining fraction.
It may be this was the origin, '
Of the terra "done Brown" that is, taken in
By an honest trick, which is not a sin,
Though a boor would call it robbiug. .
So Brown did needles and tape ignore,
And opened a wholesale dry-goods store,
And failed for a hundred thousand moro,
- , And took to Wall-Street jobbing.
There he -vas quite in bis element,
Mid stocks and shares, and cent per cent,
While his fortune grew to such vast extent,
It was really Titanic.
In 'whist' or 'brag' the geme was still
Sure to be his, and his pockets to fill :
The bulls and the bears all envied his skill,
In making a market to suit his will,
Did be growl in his den, a Bhiver and thrill,
. Announced a sudJen panic !
He grew more pious the more he made,
And the moro he preyed, why, the more he prayed;
. ' He gave to religion his honest aid,
And for a magnificent church he paid,
From the lufty tower, to the first stooo laid,
: '" Floor, ceiling, pulpit, and gallery.
."Yes, lie owned a church and clergyman, '
Who proaoliud of a heaven on the opera plan,
(Best seats reserved for upper teu,) .
' And whose silvery aocent to subtly ran,
" , (Tliey couldn't offend the most sensitive man,
;; ,. For a very handsome salary. '"'
Maud being tho heir of this billionaire,
And scarcely more rich than she was fair,
With her lustrous eyes, and her raven hair,
' ' Of course, had many a suitor to spare,
Though as yet, nut one did suit her. '
There was one possession for which she sighed,
Which, with all her loveliness, wealth and pride,
Had beau to this poor creature denied,
' Hence, she valued It more than all beside.
Including her fathers 'pow.er.'
' .' r . ' . , ....
She wanted an aristocratio name, ...
If lover bad down from Venus came,
Wrapped in the glory of love's own flame,
jh . With every grace which a man can claim,
If Smith or Jenkins had been his name,
She'd have pitilessly dismissed him.
She bad nearly rtaehed her nineteenth year,
When a M(. Sutherland Vote d Vera,
., ; t (lie was one of the F, F. V's, I bear),
Meeting the heiress,. poured forth in ber ear,
The tale of hie passion, so deep and sincere,
And she vowed she couldn't resist him.
m :i ...
t j .-,. f. ... ,
It is true that bis person and purse were slim j
He was foelisa of speech and gaunt of Jimb,-- -She
was as fit a companion for him
l Ae Queen Titauia for Bottom: .
"But then," said Maud to herself, 'oh, dear 1 , ;
Tbiok bow delightful my cards will appear
,w,j 'Mrs, Sutherland Vere de Vere,' 1
And I shan't see kit ten times a year, '
- Husbands are nominal things, I bear,
S'JiTo be kept down when you'te g m."
i i4i !
PART II.
' A wedding in Uigh-Lifel the elegant fair
Wondered who would,' and wbo wouldn't be there.
Uf Course, it would I uperb sffir.
Worthy the wealth of the billionaire
Utt father, be sere, no expense would (para,
As Maud was his only daughter.
They sighed for the eagerly-wished for day,
While "Hio to the wedding" the bolls did play j
Their silver tongues tolled the grand display.
And the ooslly things he bad bought her,
Maud, the beautiful, sat in her bower,
txsuing he.- orders hour by hour,
Languid and culm an tho lilly flower,
Inch imaged hnr pure affections.
Her father had given her carte llancht,
And a flood of gold, which nothing could stanch,
Boiled in a perfect avalanche,
And scattered in all directions.
Steward had sent a roliable man,
To Constantinople, and 0U0 Japan,
w ith cash Tor a oashmere, and fanciful Tan,
Who was likewiso to push on to Ispahan,
For Persia' inefinble attars.
In Paris, a thousand pairs of gloves,
And silken slippers, such perfect loves 1
All white as the breasts of as many doves,
And namoless dainty matters,
lie ordered : ribbons, wreaths, Uwns as white,
And cambrics as lino as the beamy light,
Which hangs in the mist of a summer's night,
Kmbroiderios, a fuuuine heart to delight,
Which palsied tho hands, and blinded tho sight,
Of the girl: who wrought their graces. 1
A messongcr, too, was exprestly sent,
To tho designers of Iloniton laco, to inven)
An elaborate puttern, the which to be blent
With all of the bridal laces,
A courier of Tiffany's to Turkoy flow
With directions to gather up quickly, a few
Caskets of jewels of every known hue.
And there was a rumor, quite current, too,
(Though the writer don't swear to its being true,)
That some extra financial measures
Were t.iken to purchase the great Koh-i-noor,
As the English nation were feeling poor
And fair Maud fancied she'd like to secure
This trifle amid her treasures.
Five four-story mansions of new brown stone,
Which stood upon either side of their own,
Were purchased and raised for this purpose alone
. To make room for two gorgeous pavillions,
One for breakfast, for bridal gifts one,
Like the Genii's palace these salons sbone I
It was estimated the two nlone
, Had cost as matiy millions.
Tho breakfast-room walls were overlaid
With flutings of rose-colored silk brocade,
While elendor pillars, of ivory made,
Cleamod here and there between them.
Tho crystal roof transmitted alight
Like a dawning blush on a bosom white,
Iown to a table surprisingly bright
With spoons and d;shes and cups such a sight!
If tho reader could only have seen them I
The floor was a very pretty affair ;
No tapestry carpet cr mats were there
But ivory tiles about eight inches square,
With ebony ones were imbedded.
But the room for the bridal gifts 1 that was the
place
For glitter and gorgeousness, splendor nnd space,
Where a table, draped w ith white satin lace,
Gave plenty of room for the whole Brown race
And their fortunate friends, to sublimely grace
The board of the eoon-to.be wedded.
Breakfast-sets, dinner-sets, tea-sets of gold
Sweet little finnificd fixings, to bold
Mustard, eggs, salt, sauce, hot and cold
Bohemian crystals with prices untold
Porcelain modern and porcelain old
A tea.kottle, also, of pure, solid gold,
For making tea iu the kitchen 1
Ruby-sets, diamond-sets, pearls in great strings,
Ear-bobs and necklaces, broaches and rings,
Jewels, tho brightost the orient brings,
Baskets, and trinkets, and cxquUite things,
To entangle the souls of the rich in.
Now .Maud had no "uncle" to send her a blank
Euvelopo, containing a "million of francs,"
So tier father just drew her a check on the bank
That was good for a million of dollars :
And justwhere this check, a la Jlothnchild, was
laid
A sixpenny primer was also displayed,
Tho gift of a neat little street sweeping maid,
Who was taught by this lady in gems and brocade,
That industry, love, and humility, made
The host traits in a Sunday-school scholar !
PART III.
Tho sun arose with a lambent flame
Ou the day in which Msud expected to claim
The honors awarded a Vere do Vere dame
Resigning forever the family name.
Whiih couldu't, she thought, pass muster.
With her maids around she sat in her chair
While they fastened her curls of glorious bair
With the veil which a woman but once may wear;
(Ibree thousand dollars this ooet, I declare !)
And fastened tho pearls round a throat more fair
Than their most trauslucent luslrs.
When ail was perfect from top to toe,
Her forehead decked with its wreath of snow,
She rose and gazed in the mirror a glow
Of pleasuie flushed her faintly.
So young, so pure, so brilliant, so warm,
The bridal lace floated abcut her form,
What thoughts in hot boiora swarm,
Half womanly and half saintly f
A poet upon this point might dwell,
(Point lace, I mean, which round ber fell)
Sounding the depths of a soul whose swell
Betrayed gems of the purest water.
The admiring bridesmaids, standing near,
Heard the low murmur of ''Vere de Vere."
Ab I a child like this must be so dear
(At least a hundred thousand a year)
Whether as wife or as daughter.
Bouquet, handkerchief, book of prayer,
Bridesmaids : all right 1 a creature more fair
Never went fluttering down a stair
To meet a bridegroom awaiting her there,
With cadaverous fate and carroty hair,
And a name so full of gentility,
A buss, a puiihing, a gentle strife
'Mid the guests with curiosity rife.
And Sutherland has tukeo Maud for a wife
And Maud is Sutherland's own for life
A pair from the tree of nobility.
This tale is told with a heavy heart ;
For fata is forever hurling her dart.
Inflicting at random a fatal smart, , ; t
And ber arrow fell at this very part
Of this lavish, luxurious proceeding.
A writing or two there was to sign,
The bridegroom bid flourished across a line,
And Maud, with a a smile, like herself, divine,
Took up the pen in ber fingers fine
And fell baok faint and bleeding
With a single shriek, all wild and shrill,
Which sent through the listenore a painfull thrill,
The red blood gushes from her lips at will
Her bridal fnery dyeing.
Over her bosom so daintly white,
Changi ig her pearls to rubies bright
It flowed, regardless of laces which might
Have "ransomed a princess" her figure slight
In ber father's arms was lying.
Never, thereafter, bIio moved or spoke,
From that truiico uf death she never awoko
Sudden and stern was the blow that broke
The golden bowl of existence:
That golden bowl was too fine for aught
But the wine of pleasure for which it was wrought,
And when it was strickeu it fell, nor sought
To make a wooden resistance.
Life, for M:iud,vba4 possessed one aim
She had sighed for a sounding, patrician name
Had married to gain it and there like a flame,
Burned the truth on the paper, when, signing the
tamo
She found she had married a man by the naue
The terrible name of Witgin
Yes 1 Sutherland Wiggins 1 That F. F. V.,
Had heard of the heiress' wish to be
A little less Brown than that busy old B.
Who wrought in the Wall st. "diggin's"
And rightly supposing his own proper name
Would be mittcned, bo ployed out u high handed
gaino
Which ended in hand cuffs, but was he to blame?
There are many, be sure, wbo would venture the
same,
Were they, like this S Wiggins, tempted.
"What's in a name ?" like great Shakespeare he
said
"When once I am safe to this rich heiress wed
She'll forgive the ieceit from the motive which
led."
But the shock was too great, nnd the victim is dead.
"Mrs. Wiggins" will never be spoken or read
Sho, at least, from that woe is exempted,
A tomb is the beautiful Maud's bridal bed
And to the Tombs also An body was sped,
(From whence mny it never be emptied)
Who this traitorous trickery attempted.
MY SCISSORS.
BY FRANCIS DANA GAGE.
"Good morning, Mrs. Wicks ; I hope I too you
well this morning,"
"Well, yes, pretty well, all but my hands."
"lour Lands I what a the matter with your
hands j not been scalding them I hope?"
"No I worse than that, I got them all blistered
up trying to cut out tho children's fall clothes, with
my old scissors ; I've had 'em these ten years, and
they're just as dull as a hoe, and every time I cut
a roundabout, shirt, or a pair of pants, I've just
such a time of it. Susan Willurd is sewing for me
now, and I wanted to get my cutting done while
my band was in, so I just wantod to see if you
would not lend me your large nice tailor sbsars a
day or two, for I won't do another thing with mine
for a week to come."
'Really, Mrs. Wicks, I would like to accommo
date you, but I am very busy with mine just now,
cutting rags for my carpet, and could not possibly
spare them without great inconvenience."
"Well, I don't know what I'll do ; I can't cut
out any more with mine, and Susan has only two
weeks to stay. Do you know of any one that has
a good pair ?"
"No, I do not. Wouldn't it be bettor for you to
purchase a pair I I could hardly get along with
out mine for a single day, without feeling the want
of them."
"What did yours cost?"
"Two dollars and a half."
"Two dollars and a half goodness 1 Mr. Wicks
woulu no more let me have money to buy such a
pair of scissors than he'd fly."
"Oh, I think you are mistaken, I have always
thought Mr. Wicks very indulgent."
"There's where you are altogether Mistaken. I
hardly ever atk him for money but what be says
something to hurt my feelings, and I often do
without things that I really need rather than bave
any words. Why, yes, to-day I asked him for
money to get my full trimmings for my bonnotand
Iloeina's and it was all I could do to get it out of
him "
"How much did it require to fit your bonnets up
for winter f"
"Ouly five dollars ; it would cost ten you know
to got us both new ones,"
"And you havo the five dollars in your possession-"
"Yes, nnd we thought we would get trimmings
at Grant's. That bcantiful royal purple with the
orange edge, it's a love of a ribbon, and so oheap,
only seventy-five cents a yard."
"My dear Mrs.Wicks let me give you a new idea.
Would your husband complain if you should trim
your bonnet with ribbon worth half that sum, and
appropriate the ballauco to the purchase of a good
pair of scissors T"
"No, of course he would not, but who, I'd like
to know, is going to make themselves the town talk
for the sake of gratifying a bunland'e whims ?"
"Do it to gratify yourself, to add to your own
comfort. My bonnet-trimmings and all will not
cost over one dollar and a half, and I don't be
lieve the town will trouble itself one bit about it.
Town talk or no talk, yuu may be sure I'll never
run about with my fingers inygi while I can save
the prio of a pair of suusors in one bonnet trim.
ming. Now don 1 be offended, Mrs. Wioka ; I
know you really think you can't get along any otbi
er way than just as you do j but if you will only
make the effort to economise in your items of dress,
4c, you will soon find youj-self amply supplied
with all these'little household conveniences, which
you seem so much to want, and my word for it
your husband will not mako half the objection to
furnishing money for usefulness that be now does
for the purchase of non-essentials.
"Now there is neighbor Pennyman'e wife, flour
isbing in a fifteen dollar orape shawl, but her girl
complains that she has to borrow wash-tubs week
ly, and that Mrs. P, says it is all Mr, Pennyman's
fault."
"Why, Mrs. Smith, I thought yon was a Wo
man's Rights woman."
"And so I am ; but I assure you I am no advo
cate for woman's injustice and folly, and while I
feel that the law of the laud and common justice
greatly oppress women, and also feel that she of
ter.times greatly oppresses herself, and lays hoavi-
er burdens upon her own heart, than she herself is
willing to bear, and to siause her own weakness of
purpose, her own foolish love of display,' lays all
the blame upon ber busbao, wbo would willingly
indulge every reasonable desire, and only frown
when ungenerous demands are made upon his
means."-
"Well, I don't know, Mr. Wicke seems more
willing to give me money for dross than anything
else."
"Is that not because bo doos not foot at liborty
to deny you any persoual gratification ; because
he feels that be can make you happier thus than
in any other way? Tr the experiment, Mrs.
Wicks, tell him you will reserve half your usual
expanses for household oonveuiences, and if he
dues not fill your purse with a Wore cheerful heart,
am much mistaken. Begin en the soissors, and
if lie makes one woid of ubjsotion, I will agree to
change with you for a week, and wear my hands
to blisters on your old ones."
."Well, I'll try this once good morning."
"Good morning, Mrs. Wicks,"
Mrs. Wicks went home, and when her husband
came in to dinner, tbo first thing that took his at
tsntion was a beautiful pair of polished scissors,
worth not less than two dollars.
"Whose are these T been borrowing again, Sa
rah ?",. .
T x a m .... . .....
-io, reptiea Mn. v icks, "1 blistered my
hands yesterday with my eld ones, and I just eon
eluded I would wear my old last winter trimmings,
and have me a good pair of scissors to d ) m v work
with. Don't yon think they are nice onest 1
thought you would not care bow I spent my mon
ey, iter voice was kinder than usual.
"Of course not," he replied. Nothing further
was said. In the evening instead uf going out he
drew up a chair by the workBtand.
"Aint you going dowe street." said Roeina.
"No, I believe not to-night ; I like the click of
your ma's new scissors, and if I go down street I
am afraid they will lose their pleasant tone."
Mrs. Wicks did not look up ; her heart was full ;
for just thon a little roll of "royal purple with or
ange edge," "cheap at seventy-five cents," fell in
to ber lap.

DANGER OF RUBBING WITH BRANDY.
We beard the 'other day of a singular and, we
believe, a now effect of the application of -randy
as a medicine. A gentleman, convalescing from
an attack of sickness, was recommended by his
physician to rub himself all 6ver morning and eve'
ning with the lest brandy.
The invalid accordingly sent to his family gro
cer, with whom be bad dealt for years, and ordered
a sample of the best old cognac. Home it oame,
and that very evening it was tried outwardly, of
course. The convalescent fvlt belter, much better,
and be continued to feel better for a day or so, un
til he awoko one morning, and to his horror, dis
covered that his entire cuticle at least where it
had been rubbed with the old cogniao had become
of a deep crimson C'jlor.
Ho sprang out of bod in alarm. Tho family was
aroused ; a servant dispatched in hot haste for the
doctor. Tho invalid's wits were terribly shaken
L-v this never before heard of catastrophe. What
could be tho cause of it? He looked a picture, as
he sat before the large looking-glass in an arm
cair, and ruefully surveyed his crimson covering.
It was almost ludicrous ; it was quite as bad as Mr.
Tittlebat Titmouse's predicament about bis purple
green buir. But this oould be no laughing matter ;
it must be some extraordinary phenomenon, as he
explained it to his wondering and alarmed family.
"And just imagiue, my dear, how I shall look all
my life, if this confounded thing isn't cured. Lik
a boiled lobster! like a boiled lobster t I shall
go by no other namo 1 Oh dear 1 oh dear I"
The door bell rang ; the front door opened; in
rushed the doctor. For an instant he could not
contain himself; he bad to drop into a chair and
luugh it out.
"Oh, it's verry funny to you, no doubt, Dootor ;
but how would you like to go about all the bal
ance of your days, looking like an over-done lob
sterf"
"The doctor burst out again at this ; but be saw
that his sick man and family were really alarmed.
and be soon sobered down to bis usual pulse feel
ing. "Maybe it's the iodine, Doctor ?" suggested the
anxious wife.
"Oh, it's ironed in, no doubt," said the patient,
indulging the ruling passion strong in death.
The doctor shook bis head.
"Hnd that rubbing been done as he prescribed 1"
"Yes, faithfully."
"Good brandy ?"
"Yes, the very boet we use no other."
"Let me have it."
The brandy was brought. The dootor tasted it,
and shook his bead again.
"I'll take it home to examine chemically. There
are so many tricks among the liquor dealers."
"Oh. no fear of that with our grocer. He sells
none but the best liquors, imported direct by him
self."
"No doubt. I'll look into it, nevertheless." And
oalmiog the family alarm, the good doctor departed,
the pure old cogniao in bis pocket.
That evening came a note from bun : "Dear
L , make youi self perfectly easy. The eoginac
is first proof whisky, and won't bui t you. It was
the logwood in it that did your business."
A LITTLE DIFFICULTY IN THE WAY
An enterprising travelling agent for a well known
Cleveland tombstone manufactory lately made
business at a small town in an adjoining county.
Hearing in the village that a man in a remote part
of the township bad lost his wife, ho thought be
would go and see him and offer him consolation, a
grave stone, on his usual reasonable terms, lie
started. The road was a horribly frightful one,
but the agent persevered, and finally arrived at
the bereaved man's house. Bereaved man's hired
girl told the agent that the bereaved man was split
ting fence rails "over iu the pastur about two
miles."
Tho indefatigable agent hitched bis horse and
started for the '-pastur." After falling into all
manner of mud frbles, scraobing himself with briars
and tumbling over decayed logs, the agent at
length found the boreaved man. In a subdued
voice he asked the man if be bad lost his wife.
The man said he bad. The agent was very sorry
to hear itand sympathised with the man very deeply
in his affliction ; but death, he said, was an insati
ate nrcher, and shot down all of both high and
low degree. Informed the man that "what was
her loss was bis gain," and wo61d be glad to sell
him a grave stone to mark the spot whore the be
loved one slept-r-marble or common stone, as be
chose.at prices defying competition. The boroaved
man said there was a "little difficulty in the way.'
"Haven't you lost your wife V inquired the agent.
Why, yes, I have," said the man, "but no grave
stun am I necessary ; for you see tbo critter an t
o'eod. She's soootaa with another man 1" The
