BT ELLA WHEEI.EB. They itnj through (be «unlit, summery weather, Two maid« and a youth, 'neath skies of blue, And each of the three, as they wain together, Is secretly wishing there were but two. Tat the maidens lore each other dearly, *7 K And both love the youth, if he only knew; But he loves one as a sweet friend merely, And the other he loves as lovers do. ghe who has won his hf art's best passion Gives back a fancy, a passing whim: She loves him onlv in coquette fashion; While the other maid—she would die for him. And while they wander across the meadows. Their three hearts brimming with love's sweet pain, Ifate is sitting within the shadows. Weaving for them a tangled skein. And she shall weave till the autumn weather, When th' threads shall unrayel and all come straight; But well she loveth to knot them together, And tangle the ends for a time, doth Fate ! She at whose feet is cast that treasure, A man's heart strong with love's full tide, 8hall use it awhile as a thing of pleasure; Bruise it, and break it, and cast it aside. And she who is loved as a sweet friend only Shall find it bleeding upon the ground, And being herself so sad and lonely, Shall strive through pity to heal the wound. And after a time, when she's lîushed its grieving, She shall take it with all Us wounds and scars, And hide it away in her breast, believing 'Tis the richest treasure under the stars. But the three walk on o'er the sunlit meadows, And dream all life is a summer land ; And they pass by one who sits in the shadows, And see noUthe webs in her bony hand. And so we all. while the days are flitting, Flan ont a future of joys and pains. And see not Fate in the shadows sitting, Knotting and tying the tangled skeins. The vows we vow with a fond " Forever," The pledge we deem there can nanght befall, Fate with a touch of her hand can sever. Ali m e 1 'tis folly to plan at all. Those that we love may the soonest fail ns : We may grow to worship where now we hate. And what do our plans and our dreams avail us ? Better to leave it all with Fate. [Galaxy for March. THE DYNAMITE HORROR. The Strange Story of Thomas's Wife. Her Ignorance of His Early History. Was the Fiend a Monomaniac ? [N. Y. Herald.] *Aa was announced in the Herald, the ■teamer Wieland brought from Europe, oh her last trip, the widow of Thomas, whose dynamite plot resulted so disastrously at Bremerhaven. At the time a Herald reporter wiled npon her and an interview was ar ranged, the lady promising to disclose her knowledge of Thomas and his antecedents and to make whatever statements plight tend to establish his somewhat involved identity. She reoeived the reporter, and in reply to his questions touching her hnsband, she corrobo rated the statements published in the Herald's London letter. She said: "Tome he was always known as William Thompson. Under that name he married me and by it he was known to all the acquain tances he made on the Continent. He seemed ■verse to speaking mnoh of his early life, bat he gs ve me to understand that he was born in Brooklyn and that his people lived in Pe tersburg, Va. His father, he said, was En glish, his mother Sootoh, and of her I have frequently heard him speak in terms of the greatest affection and reverence. Ouoe, how ever, he told me that his name was Alexan der, and that he was led to oonceal it from his being engaged in blockade rnnning at the time of the war. Ha always spoke of the sea and of military life as if he had been con versant with them, bat I fancy his knowledge of both was somewhat superficial -Of his means and resources I knew little. He was never engaged in any business to my knowl edge, bat I am led to the belief that he had a passion for speculating. At one time I re member his showing me $75,000 in bonds, bat that was the only instanoe of his giving me an inkling of the resources he com manded." Thomas's habits and disposition. _ Speaking of Thomas's habits and dispo sition, his wife said: "He was essentially a fn.n of qniet disposition. Most of his time was spent at home, and he seemed to delight in nothing so mach as chatting and playing with his children. He was very proud, made few acquaintances, and although jovial in company he always preserved a strict de corum and reserve. He was no drinker, nor did he smoke mach, and I never remember having seen signs of iutoxication npon him." From the subsequent conversation the re porter was led to beiievo that Thomas's actions and likings during the ten years of his mar ried life in many instances savored of insanity. His passion for perusing sensational stories of murder and havoo, his morbid appetite for taleB of blood, and the nnacoonntable long ing for scenes of carnage,which prompted him to. look for war details with anxiety, and to visit battle-fields from whose horrors the bravest might shrink, all seemed to indicate that Thomas was essentially ■ monomaniac. Hi« wife states that daring the Franoo-Prns fi.n war he conceived a most bitter and unac countable hatred for the Germans. At times he would utter the wildest denunciations of them, and, when excited, would make the maddest threats, and express towards them the deepest detestation. SHE MEETS THE MYSTEBIOU8 MAN. Mrs. Thomas gave the following story of her life from the time of meeting her hus band : Daring the summer of 18C5 Mrs. Thomas, then a young girl, was stopping at a little country village in Illinois. It is a qniet, ■eqnestered spot, shat off from the world by great woodlands and ranges of hills, which, nom the advantages they offered sportsmen, drew together quite a number of foreign pleasure seekes. The population of the place was made up principally of French and Ger mans, and only an occasional American ever sojourned at it very long. Daring her resi dence here there came to the bonae at which she was boarding an English looking gentle man, suffering from rheumatism. He was tall, broad shouldered, with a ruddy complex ion, and a profusion of light brown hair. This man was Thomas. Why he oame there he did not divulge, but hinted to the young girl into whose company he was necessarily thrown that he had been a blockade rnnner and was now seeking concealment in this out of-the-way place. Their acquaintance ripened, and _ in the autumn of the year she became his wife. They first took up their abode in St. Lonis and lived there for a while, Thomas devoting himself entirely to his bride and forming no associations outside his hotel. All this time he talked incessantly abont his adventures in the war, often expressing a fear that pursuers whom he dreaded would get npon his track. At night, too, his sleep was troubled, and he frequently started np, exclaiming that the dagger of an assassin had been at his throat One night in the middle of winter, while all the residents of the hotel were asleep, there a knock at the door, whioh Thomas rose ftom his bed to answer. In a moment he eame back, hurriedly dressed himself, and, without any explanation, departed. Days passed away, and Mm. Thomas neither saw nor heard anything of her absent hnsband, on til the thought that he had deserted her to dawn npon her. he waited patiently, however, and one day he came back as suddenly as he had depar and told her that he had narrowly escaped with his life and that she most prepare to leave St Lonis at once. That afternoon they took the train for New York, and traveled day and night in the most severe weather till they reached it So intense had been the cold and so exhaustive the excitement of the trip that Mrs. Thomas had to be conveyed to her hotel in an almost nnmb condition, and had to have restoratives applied immediately on her ar rival. But no delay would be suffered. The steamer Hermann, of the Bremen line, was to sail in a conple of days. and on her they left for Earope on the 13th of January, I860 Atter a twelve days' passage they reached Bre men, and from it proceeded to Dresden where they resided several months. Once in Earope the fear of some impending danger seemed to leave Thomas, and he became the bloff, jovial fellow which the acquaintances he made there have since described him to be. Most ol his time was spent at home, and he delighted to visit all points of interest abont the city and its suburbs in the company of his wife »nd to describe them with a truthful ness and facility which mast have been the result of very extensive reading. While here he joined the American Club, and became a favorite with most cf the mem bers, his genial humor and generosity, which always distinguished him, recommending him to them all. At this time the Austrian war was drawing to a close, and day after day Thomas occupied himself only with the news papers. Before this, and during his residence in America, nothing so pleased him as a pe rusal of the newspapers, and for narratives of murders, battles and sadden death he bad a special zest So absorbed would he become at times in this reading that he would Iobb control of himself and rave abont soenes of bloodshed described in it as though he were mad. When the accounts of the last battles of the Austrian war got into print a sndden desire siezed Thomas to visit these fields of car nage, and while his wife was still suffering from illness and grief for the loss of a child, he caused her to ride in his company along the route the contending armies had taken in the last campaign. Over every field where the havoo had been greatest they went, and, although the man evinced a wish to conceal from his wife some of the horrors spread along the way, he seemed to gloat over the awful sights and to be oblivions to anything bat them. Very harried preparations had been made for this strange journey, and so when they passed through districts where the villages had been burned and the fields devastated they suffered intensely from thirst and fatigne, bat even this would not deter him from con tinuing on his route. Strangely inconsistent with this morbid passion for looking upon death in its most revolting aspeot was fiis conduct on visiting hospitals where the wonnded were brongnt. He oonveresd with them, encouraged them and frequently wept over them ; and when he saw the dead borne by their comrades to their last repose his eyes would fill with tears, and he wonld keep re peating, "Poor fellows, I pity them." On his return to Dresden the dootor attending his wife reproached him with the folly of his journey, saying it was the act of a crazy man; at which he became thoughtful, and desisted for a while from speaking of the horrors he had seen on the way. THE HOME AT DRESDEN. In a short time Thomas announced his in tention of going to America. He hired house in the suburbs of Dresden, bade an affeetionate farewell to his family and corre sponded with them so far as he was able on the way. His stay in America was very brief, aa he returned on the steamer whioh had taken him there. He had telegraphed his ar rival on reaching Bremen, and on the night when she expected him Mrs. Thomas sat np awaiting him anti), worn oat by fatigue, she fell asleep. Suddenly she was awakened by load knocks on the door, and a voioe she recognized as her husband's threatening and swearing. She opened the door and he came into the room, flashed, angry, and with strange, wild look in his face she had never seen before. From that time he lost his good hnmor, avoided his friends and sat apart, gloomy, taciturn, and disposed to re sent any disturbance whatever. His chil dren, too, whom he had formerly delighted to fondle, were now negleoted, and no effort of his wife's coaid dispel his settled melan choly. He was also subject to fits of dizzi ness, and when questioned about it said he had had a touon of sunstroke, bat wonld soon recover, and entreated to be left to his own thoughts. A marked characteristic of his at this time was his aversion to people for whom he had formerly had a great liking.' Time and again he expressed his feelingB toward them with a passionate earnestness indioative of actual hatred, and whenever he had occasion to mention them his speech was most violent and abnsive. Suddenly, however, he became more cheerful, and annonnoed his intention of going to America again. He made the ne cessary preparations and took passage for England. For a while letters came Irom him dated from different hotels, and then corres pondence suddenly ceased. Time passed and Mrs. Thomas in her little house near Dresden vainly awaited Borne news of the absentee. Her money was nearly all expended, and, living among strange people, she knew not what resource to seek. Telegrams sent by her to England were unanswered and fears of some dreadful accident began to force them selves npon her. While in this strait she re oeived a communies ion from her hnsband, announcing bis arrival in America and declar ing his intention of speedily returning. One day some time after this, while seated with her children, Thomas entered the room suddenly, hesitated for a moment, and then cast himself beside her, weeping like a child. In answer to her inquiries he said, in strange, rambling way, "Oh, how I longed tor this moment ! I was in the house all last night." " That oonld not be," said his wife; "the doors were locked and bolted." "Well, I was about it," he replied. "I walked around it again and again." Mrs. Thomas endeavored to dismiss such fancy from his head, and he at last admitted that he had not been there, but had seen everything in imagination, j nst as if he were. For a few weeks he remained about the house, displaying some of his former cheerfulness and frequently langhing and chatting with the children. His wife rejoiced at this im provement in his health and disposition and tried to believe that he had resumed his old coarse of life agaiD, when one stormy night he burst into her room muffled to the throat and with the rain streaming from his garments. " I did not want to grieve yon by telling yon," he said, in a voice that trembled with exoitement; " but have to go away for a week or two." She began to weep as she parted from him, when he turned and whispered, " I must go now, bat this will be the last time." He went away, and in a lew days came let ters from him dated at Bremen and Bremer haven. The language of these missives was strangely rambling, the words misspelled, and traoes of tears blurring the ink on every page. These indications of a troubled mind seemed portentous to Mrs. Thomas. She felt a pre sentiment that something dreadfal was going to happen, and day after day looked for news from her hnsband. For a long time she heard nothing of him, till one day there oame telegram from the North Lloyd Steamship Company addressed to " Mrs. Thomas,' and bearing this dispatch: "I am sick. Come on here. "Thomas." Through the misdirection oi the envelope a she was not sore at fink Oat it eame from her hnsband. So riba telegraphed to the steam ship company to inquire, and they sent a de tective to Dresden to bring her np to Bremer haven.- She had heard about the great ex' plosion there, and fancied for awhile that her hnsband had been standing by and sustained some injury, but the detective, while oon cealing the facts of the case,' intimated that Thomas had been wounded by his own hand. This intelligence increased her anxiety and dismay, and served to divert her attention from the carions crowd which gathered at every station on the route to see her, and it made her nnmindfnl of their scrutiny. On reaching Bremerbaven another detect ive awaited her, whqse attendance, she im agined, had been secured by the kind fore thought of her hnsband. While waiting on the platform for a cab she was surprised to behold a vast concourse ot people, apparency expecting some pnblie demonstration and crowding all the streets and byways which opened on the main thoroughfare. Soon over the faces of the multitude a look of pity passed as there moved into view a long train of hearses, stretching far np the avenne, which, she was told, bore to the grave the victims of the explosion. The sorrow de pioted on the faces of the relatives who fol lowed the sad cortege, moved her womanly heart,' and the tears of the wifè were shed in pity for the victims of the hnsband's fatal Dlot On reaching her hotel the Inspector of Police called npon her and from his lips she first heard the awful story of Thomas's crime. For a while she says she was unable to realize or comprehend what she had heard. In a state of stnpor she asked the official to repeat it again, and during the subsequent examination to which she was submitted she had barely strength enough to answer the questions pnt her. On asking to see her hns band the officials at first demurred, and after ward agreed to an interview only in the presence of witnesses, and with the under standing that all conversation shonld be car ried on in German, with which language, Mrs. Thomas says, her hnsband was quite un familiar. It was only when he was speechless and at the point of death that she was per mitted to see him. In a large room in the hospital, whither he had been taken, Thomas lay. HiB breath came hard and labored, and his whole frame trembled convulsively when his wife was led np to the bedside. His eyes fixed npon her face with a look of recognition, and when the doctors inquired if he knew her he pressed her hand tightly and strove, bat in vain, to speak. For a few mo menta Mrs. Thomas was allowed to remain by the dying man, and soon after she was led away he breathed his last Then began a se ries of examinations by both magistrates and carions persons of no social standing, coupled with suggestion^ from the Germn press which the American residents felt called npon to re sent, until wearied by this kind of persecu tion and longing to secure retirement from the unenviable publicity into which she had been brought, Mrs. Thomas came to America. PENNILESS WIDOWHOOD. At present she is residing in New York with her four children, from whom she has aedn lonsly concealed the knowledge of their father's crime and death. Left utterly pen niless in her widowhood, it was only by the munificence of the American residents in Germany that she was enabled to pay the ex penses of the voyage, and she is now without any resources whatever. A lady friend of hers, who met her on the Continent and keenly appreciates the position of a woman of refinement each as Mr. Thomas is, exposed to pennry after a life of affluence, has sug gested the propriety of making a public ap peal for sympathy, as the Americans on the Continent did, in order to enable the widow and mother to support the little ones whom she shrinks from intrasting to an eleemosy nary institution. CENTENNIAL âoSTUMES. [From Harper's Bazar.] Costumers say that the present ohoice of fancy dresw is for Centennial costumes, as Lady Wasuiïjton tea-parties are the fashion of the winter rather than general masquer ades. The reader wiill find excellent models for snch pictures in Huntington's picture of the "Republican Court," of whioh an engrav ing was given in Harper's Weekly daring the Dost summer. Costumers, however, do not copy this picture literally, but nse rather the dreBB of Lady Washington's yonth, sometimes omitting altogether the handkerchief, and ex hibiting the powdered hair without a cap. To give the difference in detail: Instead of mak ing the dress to be laoed in front, the cos tumers nse a pointed waist, with a half-high sqnare neck, and laoe it behind. Two materials appear in each dresses, viz : brocade or striped silk for the court train, and plain silk or satin for the petticoat. The bro oade or material of the train forms all the waist except a vest-hke plastron in front, which is of the plain silk. This plastron is five or six inches broad at the top, descends sharp to a point, and to be in keeping, should be wadded lightly, and quilted in small diamonds to match the petticoat. A bow of velvet is at the end of the point, and lace garniture, beginning under this bow. passes np each side of the pla8trom and trims the sqnare neck. The sleeves, ot the brocaded silk, are straight, plain, are made to reach to the elbow, where they are finished with fall raffles of lace. Instead of a separate petticoat costumers merely qnilt a wide front breadth of the plain satin or silk, and simulate a court train by making back breadths of a trained brocaded skirt, and sewing them straight np the sides of the qnilted tablier. Notwithstanding few flounces and laces are seen on the dresses of revolutionary times, costumers to-day add a deep flounce of silk or lace aronnd the train, and pass it np the sides'to the waist, graduat ing it to a narrow ruffle at the top. Ladies who do not wish to expose their necks and shoulders nse the 6nowy kerchief, a square of sheer white lawn—organdy is best—doubled like a three-cornered shawl, folded to cover the neck, and the ends tacked in the square corsage. The mnslm cap, with its fall bag crown and plaited frill, is worn jnst back of the Pompadour roll of powdered hair. Long white kid gloves are buttoned to the elbow. Costumers display such dresses made with rose-colored silk-quilted frost, and train ot bine and white brocade, trimmed with flonnoes of point applique lace. Another has a crimson petticoat with pearl-gray bro caded train, trimmed with black lace flounces. A third has orange-colored quitted satin for the front, with a dress of antiquated ebene silk. A more youthful Lady Washington dress has a Watteau polonaise, with trained back, very short apron front, sqnare neck and elbow sleeves. This is made np of white satin, to be worn over any blue or rose silk or velvet skirts the wearer may choose. It is trimmed with pearls. The coiffure, without powder, shonld be strings of pearls looped in the back hair; the front hair shonld be drawn plainly back from the face. The snow plows used on the Union Pacific Railroad to clear the tracks.are abont as big as a two-story bouse, weighing .45,000 to 50,000 pounds. With six or eight powerful engines behind it, running at the rate of forty miles an hoar, when this enormoas plow dashes into a drift it " makes the fur fly " gloriously. That is—sometimes it does. " I like to go to the Windsor Hotel," said a faoetiona New York traveler, " for it famishes me with an nnfailing pan. I get a man to the window when the breeze is coming in off the sea, and remark, 'Thia is the wind, air.' " Buy your buggy and carriage of L. T.
