A Surprised Young Man.
An instance occurred last night at the
Sons of Veterans mask ball which re
minded many of such scenes as are
frequently revealed upon the sudden
reak of day which strikes a car load of
loye makers as they are rapidly pulled
from a tunnel. The actions may not

A young man who presents somewhat
of n female Texnression even when his
countenanco is not hidden from view by
a mask, attired himself in a low-necked
dress, while a stylish hat partially cov
ered streaming golden tresses which
reached the waist of this much admired
beauty. By the aid of modern science,
the young man managed to build ad
ditions to himself which, when completed,
passed him off in the regular form. He
was sized up much by the young bloods
who remarked to themselves: "I wonder
who she is, I must not go home before
meetinT her and bavins a dance. She is
a beauy, and I believo she must be i
stranger for I do not ever see

She danced with several of the young
men, and all were apparently mcch de
lighted with her company, her graceful
dancing, her charming figure and musicul
voice. One of the mashers danced with
this young ldy, and being an intimate
friend of the disguised, the great secret
was divulged to him, which suddenly
opened his eyes and he was about to
thump the deceiver when he was sudden
ly huslud up. The two made it up to
seure a ooint on a fellow thev had "had
