The masquerade ball given in this city on
Christinas night was a grand Mieces. over

characterized by the good order ami lack
of rowdyism prevalent, and all roport hav
ing had an excellent time. The costumes
were verv striking mid original and the an
tics of the masqueradei'S greatly amused
the largo crowd of spectators present. Mr.
lialrd, the dunncer, is deserving of much
credit for the manner in which the alfair
Mr. A. E. Eaton while east no doubt re
galed the natives with many stories of tins
eiiiintry. The Granite State Xcws says:
Cool nights and mornings, is the order,
and the chininev corner is a favorite resort,
and the hours arc cheerfully passed in lis
tening to incidents of early court days by
some of theold 't:igers.' Mr. A. H. Eaton
has the happy faculty of attracting great
attention by tbe narratives of his adopted
western home. It is always pleasant, to
hear about the Vet, and especially from
the lips of a Carroll county boy."

became so strong that he disposed of the

Unconscious of the toars that fall
Tears that for thee bring no relief;

Supplant the love for those, so dear,
Who yet remain to comfort thee

Will help thee in thy direst need.

Hright angels bore lier soul awav.
In realms of hliss lior spirit dwells,
Then grieve for her no ninre, I pray;
Safe from life's sorrows and its sin,
She has found a refuge that few can win.
Ilrief were her years. No sorrow marred
lier joyous life filled witli day-dreams
Chaste, pure in thoiiKht, beloved by all.
She passed from earth to le.ilnis of light;
Safe iu the Savior's sheltering care.
Thy dear one waits thy coming there.
