A DREAM OP REST.
Rosaline E. Jones
It Is to tweet to know
The old, glad haunta that knew me long ago
&.eep yei tor ma a vanquu renting place;
And when I wander back, sometimes a face
foams on my Kdan with dear love-lit ejus
ii wi wuuuer uiu A uuem it (mnuuaoi
What wonder, whsn ray feet
Are bruised and weary hastening to meet
The all of woe or weal life holds for me.
With strenuous, sturdy faith that dewtiny
Holds a far happier portion in it clutch
Fur him who loves hi life-work overmuch!
And, resting from my toil,
Above the echoing die of life's turmoil
I hear the tinkle of a little belt
Blent with liunb's bleating, and I dream I
The blue wild violets, where, hieath other
In other years, they lifted up shy eyes.
And, too, the daffodils
Still nod and beckon, and the brown thrush
Hi kummer ditty. Ohl my tired brain
Is lulled by the soft strain.
Till, my soul, bathed in ree-tfid blewdnem,
Bathes in a trance of sweet forgetiulnuM,
As if some anodyne,
Fabled nepenthe, or some magic wine
Of poppy vintage, steeped
In sonit) mysterious fatdiion, leaped
Through every fiber of my soul, and kept
A blessed spirit near me w hile I slept
But mr horizon dips.
So hastily 1 kiss my Anger tips
And tons farewells to the glad realm where
And dreams their blisses keep,
And hurry back to work, where scheme and
And toil mut sweeten all life's little span.
A GERMAN VILLAGE WEDOINQ.
The Picturesque Ceremonies Attend
lua; a illarrlaee in the Fatherland.
Crailsheim Letter iu Baltimore Sun.
The village church, where tho wed
ding took place, is on tho top of a littlo
craggy hill. The church in very old,
built of grav stono, with a square tower
and ail odd-shaped belfry. Tho stony
path leu through tho travevardto the
church door. The chime of bells rang
out with a decorous joy. "Let all things
be done decently ana in order, they
Deemed to ring; "not too fast; we . aro
Htaid people nnd take time for all
things. The interior of the church
was cold and severe-looking, the
walls whitewashed, but tho galler
ies painted pink and blue. The
long, narrow windows scomod
set in stono arches, so thick was tho
wall. 1 ho pulpit above the altar was as
high up as tho galleries, so that tho
minister preaches far above the heads of
his flock. Ou ono sido of the altar hung
a portrait of Luther; on the other, of
The wedding took place at midday.
First came a troop of littlo girls, each
carrying in her hand tiny bunches of
flowers. The little things, with thoir
braided hair (no hats) and dresses almost
touching the floor, looked as quaint and
demure as the littlo women in tho old-
fashioned picture-books. Next came the
bride and one bridesmaid, then three
bridesmaids walking together, lastly tho
groom and groomsmen. Tho bride and
bridesmaids entered a pow to the left,
the groom and party one to the right.
All knelt in prayer. Then tho bride
went by herself to the altar, laid on one
side a white silk handkerchief, a sprig of
rosemary and a lemon! 1 wondered to
roysolf if the lemon was emblematic of tho
sourness of married lifo.She then returned
to the pew. I noticed that there was on
the other sido of the altar another white
silk handkerchief, sprig of rosemary and
a now Bible. Tho choir sang quite a
long hymn. Tho minister went up in
tho pulpit and preached a sermon of
about twenty minutes. The choir sang
another hymn. A little boy placed a
long, low stool before the altar. Tho
minister descended, and tho brido joined
the groom at tho altar, tho bridesmaids
and groomsmen remaining in tho pews.
At tho closo of the ceremony the min
ister presented tho groom with the new
Bible. Tho choir sang another hymn.
Then tho brido returned to her pew and
the groom to his, and said their prayers,
aftor which the groom and groomsmen
left the church and were not joined by
the bride until they were quite out in
the churchyard. It seems tho silk
handkerchief, lemon and rosoraary on
one side of tho altar were for the min
ister. Ou tho other the gift was for the

sentimental, has of late been wooing a
ladv of somn experience m matrimonv

lias not been very tuvorabio to his suit,
but he has pressed it vigorously. Old
men never grow too old to press their suit
with a pretty woman. The aged lover

couched in something like the following
' 1 adore vou I love you with my

that few can offer."
"Well, I don't much mind your old

THE COWBOY'S MOTHER.
Dow Broncho Dill Went noma Aftor
Twenty Tear Absence.
"When I struck Philadelphia," said
Broncho Bdl, one of the best known
cowboys now traveling with tho Wild
West show, "I wanted to see my mother.
I knew sho was liviu' tliar, but I was
blamed if I could ketch tho exac' spot,
an' it kind of stumped me. Didn't know
what to do. One day a preacher fuller
that I hed knowed at Pino Ridge agency,
Nebraska, camo up to me when tho after
noon show was over, lie had come east
on a visit. I told him 'bout not bcin'
ablo to locate my mother, an' ho said
ho'd fix it all right.
"So away ho goes an' finds some sort
of a big book I think it was a register.
Anyhow, it had my mother's natno in,
an' tho street an' number of her house,
Yer bet I was glad. I told the boys an'
they flxod up right away goin' to seo
all fair, vou know; that's the boys every
time. Ve took a car nu' rode away
down into tho oit y to Twelfth struct, I
think they called it. I left tho boys there,
an' asked a feller tho way to Catharine
street. 'Fifteen blocks,' sea lie. Thcw,'
says 1. 'All right though; I guess I kin
do it,' an' oil I walked through tho
shops an' the peoplo, an' the horses an'
carriages, till 1 camo to Cathariue
"Wall, I foun' the house an' I knocked
at it, an' my mother opened tho door.
I hadn't seen her for twenty years not
sinco I went west. She was swocpin'
out, an' had tho broom in her
hand, au' she startod like, when
she seen my cowboy dress, an' looked
bard at me. I hed med np my mind to
play off stranger, and tell her I was a

"S's I, 'Wall, I'm from Pino Ridge

'Yes, I am vonr son, mother,' I
said; 'I am Bill.' She cried harder

tell each other that I was lato in gotting

A Meeting; ot Royalty.
Weisbadcn Cor. Boston Transcript
As we drove to the station we passed
an old lady being wheeled in an invalid
chair by a hotel porter. Sho looked
aged, ill, and was plainly attired. I
cast a pitying thought after her, with
tho hopo that she was blessed with
friends. This same lady wo saw Inter in
the station, still in her chair, and bend
ing over her, kissing hor, caressing her,
and talking to her most affectionately,
was a handsome, stately, middlo-agod
woman, with a stop liko a girl's and a
figure litho imd tine a woman full of
animal spirfls and brio. This was the
empress of Austria, Elizabeth, tho most
famous of royal horse women, who may
be said to live on her horse.
Talking down to the old lady was a
sweet-faced, dignified woman with a
most winning presence the princess of
Wales and behind her, her royal
mother, the queen of Denmark. The
empress of Austria was richly dressed
in black silk, with a large hat in which
were many long gray plumes, and the
princess was most simply attired, in a
closo-fitting bonnet and dark stuff gown.
The old lady was grand duchess of somo
thing, I've forgotten what, and the royal
train had rested on its way to Darmstadt,
at licidelburg, that she might receive the
greetings of these frionds. Tho
prince and princess of Wales
and tho king and queen of Denmark
aro yet at Wiosbauon for tho waters,
living in a simplo fashion, that some
American millionaires would scorn.
The empress of Austria was hero for
several weeks, off on hor horso before
other guests wore awake, and visiting
all tho neighboring towns in this man
ner. In the train of royal carriages
belonging to this empress is ono carriage
for her horses, and all of these carriages
aro in polished black wood with simple
cold moldings and tho llapsburg arms
in crold. It was a beautiful train, and
fcho demonstrative affection, tho simple,
unconscious graciousness of those royal
personagos were very pleasant to see,
and my mind was quite relioved as to
the sick old lady's possessing friends.

The emporcr of Anam uses a large
and deep pond of water as a safe for
money and valuables. The money not
intended for use is placed in tho hol

thrown into the water. To keep away
thieves and prevent tho king himself
fiom being tempted to draw upon tho
reserve and without sufficient cause, a
number of crocodiles are kept in tho
water, their presence and tho certainty
of being eaten alive acting as a whole
