Paris Cor. London Telegraph. Rossini's braces are not the only strange relic In the museum of the opera. There are other braces, whole or fragmentary: for Instance, a piece of the pair worn by the Due de Berry when he was assassinated in 1820 at the door of the old Opera. He was taken into the lodge, and the porter eventually bequeathed the relic to the j museum A piece of many colored ribbon Is shown, with the notice that "Meyerbeer, who had most of the orders of Europe, caused a special yard of silk ribtoon to be woven at Lyons, in which were all the colors of his decorations. The fragment exhibition is one of this special make, which he wore at the time of his death.' The only Orsinl bomb which did not ex plode in the outrage of 1853 is "under a glass case, minus its explosives, of course. A few fragments of silk gauze and pink tights arc relies of a dancer, Emma Llvry, who whs frightfully burnpd in a fire at a dress rehearsal in 1862, dying from her in juries eight months later, ? after great suf fering. A peculiarly ugly inkstand is that used by Spontfnl. and an overornate piano In atrocious taste is his wedding present from the Erards on his marriage with Mile. Erard. A still more hideous clock Is the flrst thing bought by Rossini with his royal ties from the production of "II Harblere" In France, and It never left his bedroom un til his death. A bell reduced to a shape less lump of metal and the sword of Saint Brls in "The Huguenots," blackened and twisted, are mementoes of the fire which destroyed the old Opera of tlie Rue le Pele tier in 1873. Sunshine and Shadow. Written tor The Star. Out In the sunshine, the shadows behind me. The mists and the gloom of the pine-sheltered | way. Full In the sunlight of hope to remind me That life has Its bright skies as well as Its gray. The uathway was long and the pathway was dreary, And shadows fell thick where my footseps would stray; No flowers blooming bright, and no birds singing cheery. To drlTo from my lone path the shadows away. But hone swings anew with the glow of the morning. And faith has rekindled Its fires In my heart; The Sun's cheering rans the bright skies adorning | Have banished the gloom that the shadows im part. Thus shadow and shine with each life Is blended. Thus joy and despondency each has Its day; But care's darkest hour by sweet hope attended Will pass like the mists of the morning away. _ C. II. DOING. AMUSEMENTS.
