When n boy
That old sweetheart
Bho must havo boon
When sho twit
You through tlo mall
Bho hail, though
young (and gay).
Your figured edgo of lco
brings lute- to mo her face,
And 1 seem
To sco hor as sho was.
Framed In your faded fui
LIko a dream.
Ilcr eyes wero violet blue.
I catch onco mom tbo buo
Of her hair.
0 Cu pld t now I sought
From her ono kiss, and thought
"Would she caro?"
Oh, transient, fleeting bllssl
For that woo maiden's kiss
BtlU I pine.
For long ago I sigh.
When llttlo Ruth was my
St. Valentine'. Origin.
When old St. Valentino was young,
IIo loved a maiden far abovo him;
Ho told his talo with trembling tongue
Bho plainly said sho could not lovo htm.
But ho was of persistent kind.
And midnight saw him by bis taper,
Devolving rhymes in tortured mind
To tell lovo's story fond on paper.
Twos dainty verso when It was done,
Its golden letters ranged In order,
Cupids and hearts each lino upon
And roses running round the border.
Ho signed no name, but Just, tbo date
Tho 14th day of February
A kiss for seal, a prayer to fate.
Then sent It to the Princess Mary.
Sho read It onco her cheeks grow red;
Bho read It twice her heart grew lighter;
And love its warmth around her shed,
Whllo wit soon told who was tho write.
Bho wroto ono Uttlo word twos "0omo(
And scut It to the ardent wooer;
A moment be with Joy was dumb,
Tho next his feet were flying to her.
And they wore wed; and Valentine
And Mary often gave thanksgiving;
Bho loved to quoto his grand old Una:
"Without lovo life's not worth the living."
As lovers' friend bo gained renown.
And proved that lovo was all 'twas painted,
Tbo greatest match maker lu town
Got what he merited when sainted.
Tis many years ago since then.
And yet each passing year discovers
That Valentine, by molds and men,
Is still beloved the saint of lovers.

"Captain Swift," a strong play, which
scored n successful run of over .TOO nights in
both Now York mid Iondou, will Imi tho at
traction at tho ora houso Monday evening.
Tho piny Is of Kngllsh authorship and of Eng
lish scenes and characters. It is similar to
"Jim tho Penman," in having the detectivo
element pi edomiuaut. The hero Is an Aus
tralian renegade, buhu hacker and outlaw.
Captain Swift finds himself in London dis
guised ns Mr. Wilding nnd pursued by detec
tives. Clmnco throws him lu with thu Sw
brooko family and ho falls In lovo with the
nleco and ward of Mrs. ricabrooko Ho Is
warned away by friends, who recognlzo him,
but ho prefers to win thoglrlnud her fortune.
Tho grent sceno of tho play Is tho confession
of Mrs. Seabrooko to Wllilng that she Is tho
mother who cast lilmoir in Infancy. Tho dis
covery that Wilding is in lovo with her nleco
precipitates tho crisis and forces from her tho
avowal. Captain Swift finally falls into tho
hands of tho detectives, but escapes and takes
refugo with nn old friend. Hern ho Is finally
brought to bay, and, woary of tho strugglo,
consents to go back to Australia for trial.
This seems hardly n natural ending, nnd in
fact Is a departuro from tho original London
version, in which thu iniiietuous, stormy cap
tain Is Hindu to blow out his brains to escape
tho Inw's punishment Arthur Forrest, who
will bo reuieniliercd for very capnblo work
with Kate Claxton nnd Hhea, appeared in the
title role at every jorfurinnnco of "Captain
Swift'1 since it was first brought out by Mr.
Palmer in New York in December, 1888, nnd
has licen highly praised for his powerful de
lineation of tho cool, polished villain, In whom
many traces of bettor things still remain.
"A POOH RELATION."
Sol Smith Russell will lo at Funko's Tues
day owning In his latest, "A Poor Relation."
Hero Is a man who acts natural, nnd tho nu
dlenco marvels nt his art; a man who act
with his whole bolng, his head, his limbs, nnd
oven to his linger tips. "A Poor Relation" Is
n genteel comedy sketch of tho highest order,
nnd in It Sol Smith Ilmscll is making the
greatest success of his caieer, The Chicago
7'iniftf sn.is; "The company could scarcely
Isjlietter. Miss (liace I'llkins, bubbling all
over liltli gotxl humor, made a Ixm Itching
'Dolly' and Merri Osburu's 'Scollops' was n
clover bit of acting. Tho children, Master
Richard ami llttlo llnrell'liappell bloxs their
dear llttlo Innocent hearts captivated thu
audience nt tho very start. The last named,
though scarcely live years of age, acted In a
manner as graceful and natural as one of
more mature years. Other memlHrs of tho
company are deserving of ccial notleo."
That popular comedienne, Coriuno, will bo
nt Funko's with a strong company next
Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings and
Saturday nfternoon. Thu Cleveland l.cmler

of tho demonstration. "Arcadia" is u bur
losquo in every sense ot the word, and IU con
struction admits of somo clover character act
ing, and the op)ortunlties worn Improved to
tho best advantage. Tho glitter of fairy cos
tumes nnd the attendant showy features of
thu play wet o nlso well received. A police
drill conducted under nu original and amus
ing code of commands, nnd an Amazonian
drill, figured very prominently in tho per
formance. Tho fortunes of Corlmiu ns Tom
Tom, a pljier's son, led her through u series of

Inimitable dancing were Intioduced to the
delight of every spectator. i
TALK OK TIIESTAOE.
A curious incident attended a recent per
formance of "Gretchen" In which Margaret
Mather appeared In tho title role. Tlio first
scene Is laid in a churchyard adjoining n mon
astery and the time of action is midnight.
Tho surroundings were dark and sombre. A
party of Dominican fathers arrayed in thoir
white rolies enter the grnveynrd, jmss among
tho tombs and disnppcar through the door of
tho cloister. One of the sujiers more interest
ed than his fellows in tho progress of tho play
pauses just Inside tho monastery, liehlnd n
wing which, lu the darkness, is pulled back,
leaving the uususiiectlngmixiliary In full view
of the audience. The darkness, however,
shields ' him. An Interesting period of thu
play is reached at this Junctuie. Mephisto,
by the nrt of which hu Is consummate, con.
jure before the gaze of Faustus a vision of
Gretchen, which approaches ftom a sldo en
trance, moves across the stago, pausing nt tho
center to supplicate the doubting lather. The
vision is Miss Mather attended by two strong
calcium lightH that follow her wherever she
goes. The actress sees thu suer's piedicn
incut, knows that as she approaches her exit
the rays of the light will reveal him to the
audience nnd with that quick iierception of
which an actress Is master, Miss Mather,
thinking to wave him from thu scene, extends
her arms in a dreamy fashion nnd moves her
hand lu a significant manner. The super,
thinking nn emergency had como where ho
coulddisplny presence ofuilud, rushed forward
nn.l energetically shook thu vision's hand, thu
calcium luvoallng tho entire transaction to
the convulsed audience.
Miss Pauline Hall Indignantly contradicts
thu repot t that she Is about marrying McClel
lun, or anybody else. Miss Hall writes: ''I
have everything lu tho world that I want. I
had ono husband, and that was enough. If i
over change my mind, which I cannot do at
present If I would, as I hnvo not yet been di
vorced from my husband, wo havlngonly sep
arated, I will let tho world know."
It was a llttlo odd that only tlio first two
rows of the dress circle were held nt an ad.
vnncwl price for "Krmlnlo" nnd "Nndjy." It
seems that the ndvanco agent wanted tomnko
a (LM rata for nil of tlio lower floor. Man
ager McRuynolds objected, and they compro
mised on the two rows, Score ono for Man

TOM COOKE BEGINS ON THE CENSUS.
Al Fairbrother tolls tho following in tho
Omaha W'orld-Ilemhl of a distinguished Lin
colnite: Hon. Tom Cooko, who has been nptkoinUsl
superintendent of tho census of the First con
gressional district, thinking It would lx) the
projicr caper to do n llttlo rehearsing In ad
vance, mndo nu attempt at Falls City the
other day thnt was not calculated to ndd to
the belief of some thnt taking thu census is nn
ensy task. Most everyliody knows Tom
Cooke or, at least, they kuow of him. Mr.
Cook wears a smile that Is child-like and
bland. lu addition to that he wears on nil
occasions nbout 21ft sniiuls ot manly llosh, u
silk tile, n curled mustache, and when ho has
nil theo things with him his prescuco is al
most awe-inspiring. Mr. Cook mentally said,
"Well, I've got to to make a start on this, and
I'll just go over to tho house and commence
propounding questions. This will give mo
some Idea of how long a time will be required
to complete this work." So hu went over to
the house. There was no lsdl on thu door,
and ho proeooded to pound with his knuckles
for nlsnit twenty minutes. Presently a voice
that was harsh and grating yelled to Mm to
come around to thu back door, Thu lady
who had made this itspiest was washing.
She asked Mr. Cooko to 1st sea Us I. Mr. Cmiku
explained that ho was lu a hurry, and that he
would not have time to be seated. It was now
,J:lft. Mr. Cooko had suntxl to the house at
"I can't hear very well, mid when I heard
you snockln' 1 allowed that it was some of
them tatuel children, ami I dldu t pay any at
tention to It at first. You see I keep them
fi out doors locked when I ain't in the front
room. There isso many poddlcrsniid tramps
find thieves prowling 'round those times, that
Ii H-rson does not know Just when they are
safe. I was readlu' lu the paH-in that a
couple of tramps stole the front door of a
(nan's house recently, down lu Kansas, Just
In older to get tho Ml ami the lock."
At this juncture Mr. Cooke's beaier fell In
to a tub of "blueing' water, nnd while Mr.
r)gMp?a,i IP "' l"',
Harper's Young People.
Cooko would have given worlds and their
treasures to have made his feelings einphatlo
by an expression that would have been con
sidered profane, ho restrained himself and
cry ably U-ggisl tho Indy's imrdon fornllow-
mg nis lint to rail In the tub or water.
"Don't mention It," said tho lady, "hut J
you will give mo a lift hero on ithls tub, and
help mu set tho bller on that chair, I wlllaTTo
ohlcegcd to you," Mr, Cooko gave her thu
lift desired. Then ho assured thu woman that
ho was glad to hnvo met her, and departed,
Mr, Cooko, ns hu attoinplodj to smooth Ids
lienvor with his silk kerchief, explained tojhls
assl.tants that any man could got all tho de
sired Information from enelijfanilly lu four
nilnutcH-that It took him Just two minutes
by the watch to get it correct answer to any
question he had asked.
Several young oop!o are already discuss
ing, sub rosn, plana for summer recreation of
a delightful sort. A ramlly prominent lu
Lincoln's olllelal circles have Ihshi Inlthu habit
taking n cottage for tho Hiiiuinor at Colorado
Springs. Tho young ladles of the household
and several of their friends think It would Is)
"aw fully Jolly" to get n larger cottage next
season nnd Uiku the aforesaid friends In under
the same roof. The head of the house has not
Ihvii roiiNiilliil yet, but ho Is n dear good mail
who Is not llkoly to lntoiioso objection with
out very good reason. Colorado seems to Iki
the favorite summer resort of Lincoln iooplo,
