All things were as bright as if thro' magic lenses I he maiden had gazed in beholding the scene While a strain of sweet music stole over her senses— An angelic chorus she heard in her dreams. While she stood, all entranced, in these bright, sunny bowers, A gay band of spirits came moving along, Arrayed in white garments, with garlands of flowers Bedecking each form in the radiant throng. She saw in their midst—ss they passed just before her— A sister, who long had been lain in the grave And she smiled as the old-time affection came o'er her, But no sign of welcome the spirit-form g*TC. Then one of their number came forth and addressed her: Why standest thou thus, all alone in our land? Thy sister is here—thou hast often caressed her If thou hast done rightly—go, give her thy hand. If thou hast a husband who mourns thy removal, Then here art thou welcome, for here is thy home: But thy wavering looks givo my words no approval Say, why art thou here then, and whence dost thou come I ne'er to a husband have yet been uni ted, I know not why thus in your midst I ap pear." Thus spake the old maiden, all pale and affrighted, She trembled, yet knew not the cause of her fear. "Begone! thou intruder!" the spirit-form shouted Begone ere upon you our vengeance shall fall The mission of Woman on earth thou bast scouted. And all thy affections have turned into gall! Begone! to the land wheie thy cronies await thee— To the land of eternal lamenting and Thou neglectedst on earth to find one who would mate thee, The miseries of maidenhood now thou shalt know." Then last through the ground this old maid* en descended, Down, down to the regions of brimstone and steam! With terror she shrieked, o'er the red gulf suspended When, lo she awoke. It was only a dream. It was only a dream—yet the sackcloth and ashes Of maidenhood long have been. thrown to one side She has married a man with the best of moustaches. And now all her dreams are the dreams of a bride! O O I All work and no play, Makes Jsck a dull boy." Life is a farce to the rich a comedy to the wise and a tragedy to the poor.
