0F& .. W W . A REVERIE. [Written for the Globe.] JSTie sat alone By the fireplace, 1- lii reverie, after the ball, 'Ser billowy hair, iu careless grace. *ell over her neck and shoulders and face, Like a gold-lit waterfall. **Oh, I am weary." she sighed, as she burled ' Her tear-gleaming face iu her rich-jeweled hands, fitful fire flashes her memory carried Through dici-liguied gallery, teuderiy tar ried. Where the shadowy form of her heart prince stands. **My life, though it's blight on the surface, is bitter. In the wad, dizzy whirl of society's maze Tin courted aud flattered. Oh, false is the glitter Of fniiie and of tear, and the gossiping twitter. All soulless and empty as a meaningless plirase." Life bitter? Why? 'Tls easily told ■ And ofien repealed in lives of today; ijntreuclied by the pride aud the power of • r gold. Aud brilliant adornments, aud sympathies cold. The rarest heart treasure Is pining away. Her radiant gems but mock the Bad eight of tiie delicate chuck, now robbed of its bloom. Her social position has barred out the light Of a high, noble love, and cast a deep blight On two hearts, that exist in a dark, living tomb. —Frank ilagraw. Although it is almost a week since the great occurrence of the season in soci ety circles, those who attended, as well as those who worked so hard for the success of the atl'air, are still repusfng. Not that it was such an exhausting event, for to the ladies who had the matter in charge the charity ball al ways brings a trreat deal of satisfaction, but things have settled dowa to the usual quiet, and, with the exception of a few tens and other small events, so ciety has be n quiescent. Even the Town and Country club Beeins to have decided that happenings of a smaller character are much more the tliini: than larger events, and, con sequently, small parties are iu order. Mrs. Francis B. Clarke has returned from Chicago, and she will shortly en tertain for some little time the Prince and Princess Wolkonsky, as well as Count and Countess Brazza.

It is rumored that a very pleasant event is scheduled for the very near iuture that will introduce to St. Paul so ciety another young lady. There is therefore no need to despair of the sea eon being intolerably dull, for there will be something to occupy everybody for the next week or two and then ihe holi days will be upon us.
