1 have heard the mavis singing
His love song to the mom ;
I have seen the dew-drop clinging
To the rose just newly born;
But a sweeter voice has cheered me,
At the evening's gentle close;
And I've seen an eye still brighter
Than the dew-drop on the rose;
'Twas thy voice, my penile Mary,
And thine artless" winning smile,
That made this world an Eden,
Bonny Mary of Argyle !
Though thy voice may lose its sweetness,
And thine eye its brightness, too.
Though thy step may lack its tieetness,
And thy hair its sunny hue;
Still to me wilt thou be dearer
Than all the world shall own;
I have loved thee for thy beauty,
But not for that alone;
I have watched thy form, dear Mary,
And its goodness" was the wile
That has made thee mine forever,

Some of the Queer Secrets of "Life
in New York.
K. Y. Letter in Baltimore American.
The car stopped and two young
girls stepped in. With the instincts
of Baltimore chivalry, the Amer
can correspondent arose and offered his
seat to one of them. - y •
She didn't thank him, of course; nor
did he expect it.
"Well, I'm glad she's got a husband
at last," said one. "She's been fishing
long enough."
"O, I don't know," replied her com
panion. "I liked her, and 1 thought her
dress was lovely. It set on her just too
"Well," said the first— one of those
small, cabbage-haired girls that a man
wants to keep away from— dress
ought to set nice. It's been to enough
weddings to know, just how to set.
Why, if you was to lay that dress at
the church door it would walk right up
to the altar and say 'I do' at the proper
time and sign the marriage register."
"What on earth are you talking
about, Sadie Mason? 1 believe you are
crazy."- . - •■■- '■'
"1 mean what I say," said Sadie.
"Mollie Johnson hired that wedding
dress, and right across the street there
— there, right next door to that furni
ture store— there's where she hired it."
The American man had heard every
word, and had carefully noted the ex
act locality in the Bowery which the
cabbage-top had pointed out.
Two minutes thereafter he left the
car and was walking back to the spot.
It was near Grand street. A little sign
said :
gents' full, dress suits for hire.
ci.eg AXT wedding-robes for ladies.
I climbed up the stairs and entered
the room. Nothing was to be seen but
a neatly furnished office. The proprie
tor, a gentlemanly citizens, remarkable
principally for a big diamond, received
me cordially.
"I'm afraid, sir," he said politely,"
*' you'll be a little hard to fit for an
""-""dug suit. You're excuse me for
oiling it— but you're just a little
uder sir."
which the gentleman meant to po
.. litely tell me that I was too thin to be
fitted by an ordinary dress suit.
"I'm sorry." 1 answered contritely,
"but I would like to wear an evening
suit when I get married. It looks so
tony, you know."
"O, I'll fix you all right," he answered.
He took three or four measures, princi
pally across my chest and along my c l
Jess legs, and told me he would fix up a
suit to fit me, so I could get married i n
no end of style.
"Wnat will it cost?"
"The ordinary price for a wedding
dress suit is $2," he said; "but lam j
afraid I will have to charge you a dollar
extra, because you'll excuse my men
tioning it— "shape is a little hard to
"O. that's all right. By the way, I
want my wedding to be tony. How's
this about wedding robes? Couldn't 1
get something fly for my girl?"
"Certainly sir. But my lady assistant
has left for to-day, sir, and if you could
return to-morrow, sir, with your lady
friend, when my assistant is in, we
could, very likely, find something ri a
and handsome."
We were there the next morning—
44 we" and an accommodating lady friend.
The lady assistant met us, and my lady
friend worked off a very passable blush
at the proper moment. She took us into
an adjoining room and pulled aside a
curtain. Then she took a handsome
robe out of its linen covering and showed
it to us. i- It was a beauty. It was of rich
ivory satin, made in the style of the six
teenth century, with a long, perfectly
plain court train, the front ornamented
with three flounces of point lace, each
beaded by embroidery of pearls and
silver, ana the foot finished with a gar
land of orange blossoms, The bodice
was pointed and embroidered with pearls
and silver, and it was finished with a
high Medici collar, similarly embroid
ered. ir\vas a lovely gown.
"How would you like that?" asked
the lady assistant. It would just suit
your style of beaty, mademoiselle. You
are tall and stately and would look like
a queen in this robe."
"How much is it?" asked my com
panion. M_9f
"We would lure you this gown for
one evening, to be returned the next
morning, for $15.
"That's too much."
"Well, mademoiselle, here's another
that has been worn five or six times and
would be cheaper. That first one is
brand new and has never been worn.
That's why we charge you more. Here's
- one for £7." It's faille Francaise; that's
very fashionable just now. All the so
ciety ladies are being married in that
The gown she held up to our view was
a white faille Francaise, with a square,
plain court train, the front draped with
due— ease lace over a foot niching of
tulle and satin loops, and the corsage
cut square in the neck and trimmed
with ruchings of tulle and ribbons and
sprays of orange blossoms.
"Isn't that pretty?" she asked, "and
it's very cheap. The last lady that wore
this was one of the leading salesladies
in Macy*s. and the one just before was
typewriter for a man that writes for the
papers. Both of them had very long
reports in the papers about the elegant
costumes they wore. I have a cousin
who knows a reporter on the World,
and whenever 1 tell him there is going
to be a fashionable wedding and - give
him the items he always gets something
in one of the papers for me. 1 don't
charge anything extra for that."
Finally, she persuaded my friend to
go to the trouble of putting on a gown
of white gros grain, with a beaded tulle
front, outlined by wedding plumes of
white lilacs, and revere, embroidered
with pearl beads, finishing the square
neck and ornamenting the elbow
sleeves. She looked lusciously beauti
ful as she stood in the room with her
gleaming bare arms and shoulders.
"Of course, we furnish you with the
gloves, too. Mousquetaires of white un
dressed kid are all the fashion. And if
you desire, for 50 cents extra, we can
furnish you with a bouquet of rose-buds
or a handsome prayer-book. Prayer
books are most fashionable now.
We selected the gown my companion
had on. The price was _d, including
gloves. The assistant took some meas
ures across the bust, etc.. so as to make
a few necessary alterations in.thegown.
Two dollars was paid down in advance.
We gave her an impossible address and
left. ' spn^fffn
. Half an hour later we had left the
noise and the' vulgarity of the Bowery
far Indiind us, and were in Delmonico's
enjoying the cool and an ice.
l_"l*had to tell her some awful fibs."
remarked my lady friend, "about when
we were to be married and all that. Do
• you know, she told me some very inter
esting stories while 1 was putting on
that gown, of. some of the people who
come to her to hire wedding dresses
some of the girls, who, from the amount
of style they assume, you would never
suspect. She told me, too, that she
hired out walking dresses, and there
was one lovely green plush dress that
looked fit for a princess. She says
voting girls come to her and hire them
when they intend going out walking in
the afternoon and expect to meet a
friend. And.then she had an exquisitely
made silk for a theater dress. She hires
them out with gloves, bat and wrap to
match for S3, but you must sign a guar
antee to return the goods iv perfect con
dition. She told me that during- the
winter she did a splendid business hir
ing out sealskins tor a dollar, or plush
coats for 50 cents. She buys them at
the pawn shops, all except some of the
high-priced wedding gowns. That first
one she showed us she had made to
order. But think what a sad thing it is
for some young girl who is forced to
pawn her wedding dress, and then to
have that dress bought by this woman,
who hires it out by the night.
"She told me that I could hire any
thing—slippers, shoes, stockings,, every
thing. X by, she told me some girls
actually rent their entire outfit from
her— even down to the finest lace hand
kerchief - and, and— other things.
When their husbands ' ask how they
managed to have so much lace and silk
in their outfit, they tell them that love .
had helped them to save for the future's
sake. Some girls buy their things grad
ually by paying her on installments,
but most of them return their trousseau
at the end of the first mouth. She rents
them out for from "$l5 to $35 or 840.*: Of
course she makes lots of money. She
has plenty of customers— whose
fathers cannot give them money enough
to put on the style they want. You men
ought to feel flattered to think of the
means we poor girls resort to to look
pretty for your sakes."
Candor compels the confession that
there are hundreds of young men (hid
ing it daily on Broadway whose hand
some clothes are obtained in just the
same way. A natty spring suit for an
afternoon's promenade means tl,
and others, less tasteful but louder,
can even be had for 50 cents. The aver
age youth, whose weekly stipend is SO
or $7, thus succeeds in getting himself
out in howling style every Saturday aft
ernoon. * ' Ll. ':

Mock Modesty.
New Orleans Letter.
A pitiful case of this mock modesty
occurred right here at home last week.
One afternoon a party of - young ladies
and gentlemen went out sailing on the
lake. A squall came up, and as they
were hastening .in to shore they were
hailed by some gentlemen whose boat
had capsized, and who, in danger of
drowning, were clinging for life to its
slippery sides. It seems that these
young men had been out for a deep sea
bath and were consequently nude,
Owing to the storm they had been in
the water for a long time, and one of the
number was seized with cramps and his
alarmed companions thought he would
die before help came. Now any
ten-year-old child who has ever
tucked up its pantalets and gone
wading in a creek knows that a
person being in the water and seized
with cramps will probably die if not
rescued. As the yacht came up to the
distressed bathers" they explained the
situation to those on her and begged that
the sick man might be taken aboard and
a boat sent from West End to their own
relief. But the mock-modest young la
dies giggled and blushed, and I dare say
peeped Between the sticks of their fans,,
while vowing and declaring that they
couldn't think of such a thing. They
giggled again, hut did not think to look
the other way and expressed themselves
as horrified at the bare idea of rescuing
a nude man from death. They had no
thought for the suffering of the groaning
young fellow down in the water being
upheld by his anxious, dismayed and
exhausted companions. They were too
busy giggling and commenting on the
awfully embarrassing fact that the gen
tleman" who desired to come on board
hadn't his wardrobe with him. No,
they would rather he died than be saved
by them in his nude condition, and
finally the yacht, freighted with enough
sham sentiment and mock modesty to
sink to the very bottom in a mile deep
of ocean water, sailed off, compromising
between the proprieties and a common
humanity by promising to send help
from the West end.
It was not the fault of those young
women whoever they were, whatever
they are. that the man they abandoned
did not die before help came, but it is
their fault if some honest men and
modest women had a lesson in sham
purity and pretended innocence and a •
disgusted affectation of superior refine
ment and virtue that they will not soon
forget. I-";-:'- ."'"
Bill Hunton's Wild Ride.
Tombstone (A. T.) Epitaph.
Bill Huntou, of Bunker Hill district,
was the most frightened, man in ten
territories last Tuesday. He was un
armed. He had been off somewhere, .
and had heard nothing of the outbreak.
On arriving at Ashley's camp and find
ing it deserted he was surprised, and on
going to the corral he was more than
surprised to find a dead mule, which he
thought at first had broken its neck,
but on examination and discovering
that it had been shot, he made an ex
clamation, "Indians, by !" He
immediately started for Scan
lau's and Diehl's camp, three
miles distant, to warn them.
Approaching cautiously to the house,
he found that deserted and a general
state of confusion existing around. On
looking up he discovered several sad
dled horses of cowboys hitched to a
tree near by, but did not observe the
cowboys, who, at that moment, were
digging the grave for poor Diehl, about
a block off. He didn't stop on the order
of going, he just simply started as if the
whole Apache nation was after him.
He lit on that horse of his in a twinkling.
The rowels of his spurs dug deep fur
rows in the ribs of his steed, whose blood
was not of the pride of the Baldwin sta
bles, and whose speed was no more than
the honest cart-horse, but still he flew
as best he could. Trails had no charms
for him. A cowboy, just observing him
at this time, shouted to him. The sound
was as unmusical as a war whoop of the
entire Indian nation, and he flew. The
cowboy, apprehending the situation,
mounted a fleet horse and started in
pursuit. It then became a race for life,
lunton never looked back, but he could
hear, and on he sped. The rece was
now a go-as-you-please for two miles
and a half, when the cowboy overtook
him and shouted his name just as lie
was about to dismount and make a fight
for life.

Chester Times. | •■• f f. :
The noted Blue Bell Inn, which is lo
cated near Darby, but on tbe east bank
of Darby creek and therefore over the
county line, is one of the most historic
landmarks of that locality. It was kept
by the Paschal! family during the Revo
lution, from whom Paschallville takes
its name. The place is said to be the
scene of a very pretty incident, of which
George Washington was the hero. The
story goes that he was stopping here
on one occasion and chanced to hear the
girls in tin; kitchen (there were three of
them) chatting about him, one. of them
saying she would like to kiss him. He
opened the door" inquired which of
them it was who was so willing, but
none of them would speak. "Then I
will kiss all of you." he said, and-de
scending, Jove-like, he kissed them all,

Manufacturing Opium in Florida.
Titusville SU.r.3_J5B
We take pleasure in welcoming to the
river Dr. \\ . W. Winthrop. of St. Paul,
Minn. This gentleman has traveled
widely, and is a keen observer of what
lie met with in his travels. His primary
object in coming to the state is to en
courage the growth of the poppy and
the manufacture of opium. His expe
rience in this branch of production is of,
fifteen years' standing, and he has
grown the poppy successfully in the
East Indies, Persia, Germany, France
and in the Levant, while on the Ameri
can continent he has experimented in
Massachusetts, New York, Illinois,
lowa, Minnesota, Dakota and Florida.
The plant grows everywhere, but
best of all in Florida, producing large
bulbs and capsules. The difficulty of
hitherto producing opium in the
United States successfully has been the
high wages paid to labor. Dr. Win
throp has invented a plan, however, by
which opium can be produced here
better and cheaper than in India, where
the average wages are 10 cents a day,
and the cultivation is so perfect by his
method that sixteen plants can be made
to produce an ounce of opium. The
gentleman assures us that at the present
price of the drug a net revenue of $1,000
per acre is an exceedingly moderate
estimate. Every mange grove can be
laid out between the trees with this
plant, and the demand for the same at
good prices is illimitable. An English
syndicate of capitalists is going into the
cultivation of the poppy largely on In
dian river, and Dr. Winthrop is pros
pecting and perfecting the arrange
ments of the company. The poppy will
grow and ripen every month in the year,
and thus, doubtless, another large
source of wealth will shortly be added
to Indian river. _

Or Slack Leprosy, la a disease which Is con
sidered incurable, but it has yielded to the cura
tiro 1 rdperties of Swift's Specific— known
asover*t_e world as S. S. S. Mrs. Bailey, of West
S^nerville, Mass., near Boston, was attacked I
peveralvears ago with this hideous black erup- j
tion, and was treated by the best medical talent, j
who could only Bay that the disease was a j
species ot'.':~
and consequently Incurable. It la impossible to
describe hersufferings. Her body from the crown
of her head to the soles of her feet was a mass of
decay, masses of flesh rotting off and leaving
irreat cavities. Her Angers festered and three or
four nails dropped off at one time, Her limbs
contracted by the fearful ulceration, and for
several years she did not leave her bed. Her
weight was reduced from 125 to 60 lbs. Perhaps *
sonic faint idea of her condition can be gleaned
from the fact that three pounds of Cosmollneor
ointment wera used per week in dressing her
pores Finally the physicians acknowledged
their defeat by this Black Wolf, and commended
the sufferer to her all-wise Creator.
Her husband hearing wonderful reports of the
use of Swift's Specific (S. S. S.), prevailed on her
to try it as a last resort. She began its use under 1
protest, but soon found that her system was being !
relieved of the poison, as the sores assumed a red
and healthy color, as though the blood was be
coming pure and active. Mrs. Bailey continued
the S. S. S. until last February ; every sore was
healed ; she discarded chair and crutches, and
was for the first time In twelve years a well
woman. Her husband, Mr. C. A. Bailey, is in -
business at 17? _ Blackstone Street. Boston, and .
will take pleasure in giving the details of this
wonderful cure. Send to us lor Treatise on Blood [

With the object of giving some one of
the great mass of struggling humanity a
start in life the Globe has determined
to originate and carry out a plan which
it is pleased to designate "The Babies'
Benefit." The Globe has purchased an
eligible lot in the center of the present
limits of St. Paul. There is nothing rash
or improbable in the assertion that the
lot will easily bring $10,000 before a
baby at the present time becomes of age.
It is proposed to give this lot, free of any
incumbrance, to some baby who is for
tunate enough to hold the lucky num
ber. The deed will be made to the pa
rents, who will be required to hold the
lot in trust for the child until it becomes
of age. There is no charge for tickets.
They are Free to _____ who have ba
bies born between January 1, 1887, and
August 1, 1887. The parents have only
to clip out and fill the following blank,
enclose it in an envelope, and send it to

These tickets will he numbered as fast
a? they are received, and checks with
corresponding numbers sent to the pa
rents. On August 15, 1887, the drawing
will take place, supervised by a commit
tee of responsible and well-known citi
zens, and every baby will have a fair
and equal chance. he signature of the
attending physician or the postmaster
must be attached to the ticket, or no
notice will be taken of it. This is neces
sary to prevent imposition by designing
or would-be funny people.
The result of the Drawing will be pub
lished in the Globe of Angus! 15, 1887
