For The Courier.
Not far from bete, in the forest lay
In olden times a tavern,
Where sparkfing ale, day after day,
Kan from its cool, sweet cavern :
Yet was the host a stingy Jena ve ;
Never the thirsty guest he gave
There came, one day, in pilgrim dress,
Long years ago, a stranger ;
A man of thirst and holiness
From far Judea's manger :
"Sir host !" he cried, "a mug of beer I
And for thy weal I bid thee here
Full measure ! "
The stingy host below has gone
And scarce one trusts the story
Three fingers beer and seven foam
He pours the pilgrim hoary.
And smilingly he bears it, now.
And says in cunning tones and low,
" Full measure."
With darkening frown the pilgrim's eyes
Behold the quick foam starting :
He drank, arose, asked not the price,
But murmured in departing,
' For this thy beer of foam-spray fine
Shall punishment one day be thine
The host, when death
had mowed him down,
Pale heard his stern judge speaking ;
At midnight, now, he stalks the ground,
And blows a trumpet shrieking,
Stiff stands the wanderer's frozen hair,
lie hears the wail that thrills the air,
This mournful tale was told to me,
From that sad spot I bring it :
And unto every host I see
For his behoof I sing it.
Sir host, look not so sour and grim.
Here, take the-glass and pour me in
Lady Modish In Town Topics.
Lady Modish and the Shirt Waist.
One sees nothing but shirt waists
these sweltering days. Even the most
particular and fashionable dame can not
resist their comfort. They are worn at
breakfast and luncheon, and even at
dinner. A very stout woman, of more
than ueual good taste in dressing, wears
a pale blue mull blouse elaborately
trimmed with white lace insertions set
in squares over the front and back. The
whole is unlined, and the mull is of the
thinnest quality imaginable. The sleeves
are bishop, quite full at the wrist, and a
double row of insertion and edging form
a pretty and comfortable cuff. The col
lar is of the insertion, and unlined. Its
crushing is prevented by a tiny silk
featherbone, which serves to hold it in
place and yet is not warm. With this
blouse is worn a semi-outing hat. The
under brim is of fine black straw, while
the rest of the hat is white. Two pale
f blue breasts are placed well toward the
front of the brim, with a fold of palest
canary silk between them. The silk
stands rather high, somewhat like a
pompon, and gives the desired height
to the whole. A wide meshed veil is
worn with the hat.
A word about the skirt worn with
this exceedingly attractive and at the
same time sensible costume. It is of
silk grata linen, not too flimsy in qual
ity, and is made over a pale blue taf
feta slip, with a deep, side pleated
llounce at the foot. The yoke of the
skirt fits perfectly about the hips and
back, and is cut in points. Between
these the fullness which forms the rest
of the skirt begins in very small tucks,
which widen out toward the bottom in
tlounce effect. It is ver,y airy and sum
mery, and with the blue blouse and
white hat makes a charming midsum-
The woman with a pretty throat
leaves the featherbone out of her un
Goddess of "Light
lined collErs and lets them droop over
and crush at will. The effect is odd
enough to attract much attention.
White is having everything its own way
just now, and white duck or linen skirts
with white blouses are seen everywhere.
The very sheer white mulls, extremely
transparent and open in the back, are
the most popula with the modish. I
have written of these before, and of how
exquisite their workmanship must be.
For the "all-overs," embroidery con
tinues to be more popular than lace. It
is perhaps less cool, but not materially
so, than lace, and is distinctly a fad of
the season. There is a tendency among
very large women to wear tight sleeves.
These are imagined to be becoming and
to decrease in appearance the size of the
arm, but in reality they make the arm
look larger, because they call attention
to its girth. A model for a mull blouse
shows alternating rows of fine lace and
tucking in the round yoke, and beneath
this the fullness is of very sheer em
broidered mull. The combination of
lace and embroidery thus effected is
singularly pretty. The blouse opens in
the back and is fastened by a row of
tiny pearl buttons very close together.
One requires a maid to get into these
elaborate button-hack blouses, for even
the sleeves are difficult to fasten at the
tight-fitting cuff, where the tiny but
tons, not unlike seed-pearls, connect
with almost invisible thread loops eet in
the lace. A lace-trimmed organdie with
a tucked flounce is almost indispensible
during the hot weather. Mull embroid
ered in dots, large or small, is also pop
ular. One of white, embroidered in
black dots the size of a pea, attracted
unlimited attention at the Westchester
Country club a few evenings ago. The
wearer of the simple frock was a young
mother who has retained her remark
able beauty. A black ribbon sash
reaching to the bottom of the skirt and
a black-and-white tulle confection
about the peck completed the costume.
Another costume of dotted Swies had a
plain skirt with only a foot llounce and
a button-back waist elaborately made
up with rows of black Chantilly. This
had a belted-in blouse, and was worn
over an exquisite cache corset. A white
neck ruff was an accessory, and a large
black plumed Gainsborough hat com
pleted the outfit.

(For The Courier. )
Thuringia, whence I have flown,
To thee my song, and thee alone,
Beside the distant ocean ;
Far as the earth's wide valleys run,
No land like thee, beneath the fun.
Can claim my heart's devotion.
So dear, so true as none beside
My mother and my bride,
Oh. queen from ages olden :
The fir-wood is thy mantle good,
The dark blue heaven is thy hood,
Thy foot stool, meadows golden.
And winter presses on thy hair,
Thy coronet of diamonds fair,
And folds thy vesture over thee,
The ermine of the silver snow :
Then down before thy footstool low
I bow, my queen, before thee.
Within me rings a children's rhyme,
" Daheim. daheim ist doch daheim,"
It sounds in lane aad alley,
A thousand times I sang the air,
In my green Verra valley fair,
Yet Ihave left that valley.
Alas '. self exiled now, afar,
My own the hand that drew the bar,
And sent me on my going;
Yet every night in dreams Fsee
The home-land with each crag and tree,
As in a mirror showing.
Bring to my home this song, I pray,
Ye swift winged birds that soar away,
Unto her forests flying.
To all your friends in Verra swell,
The greeting of the pilgrim tell,
The wanderer's home sighing.
A War Relic
In a clothing store in Ypsilanti, Michi
gan, is a small looking-glass which is
made from a piece of glass taken from
Jeff Davis' house in Mississippi during
the civil war. Thaunion soldiers went
into this house and asked for food,
which was refused them. They also
found that the water in the well had
been poisoned, and was nothing less
than a weak solution of dead cate and
dogs. This infuriated the soldiers, who
took their revenge in going thiough the
house and demolishing the contents.
One entire side of the parlor was covered
with an immense mirror, the like of
which was not to be found in that part
of the country. This mirror came in
for its share of the general smash-up,
and a good-sized piece of the glass was
brought away by Captain Wortley, and
is now framed and on exhibition at his
