AN AMERICAN BELLE.

A New York girl la m brilliant,
fceautlful and incomprehensible a thing
as one of Browning's poems. Happen
ing to sit at lunch the other day next
to one of the most successful debut
ants of tho season I thought I would
make gentlo inquiries about her early
life. She was a charming creature,
eminently New Yorklsh, and, without
being strictly handsome, was irresist
ible. She was tall and not too slight,
with a well-dovelopcd figure. A warm
color mantled on her clear check, and
her features wero fairly regular, the
chief attraction being a pair of large,
dark blue eyes, shaded by long lashes.
which she knew very well to be her
best point, and used with great effect
As she pulled off her long gray gloves
and took up her oyster fork I noticed
her beautiful hands, which were long
and slender, with perfect almond
shaped nails that bespoke tho mani
cure's frequent care, and taper fingers.
Her rings were few, but costly too
"Where did you go to school?" I
asked, to bogflx with. "In New York,

me in pretty perplexity. When she
Bpoke hor voice was delightful, qulto
English in its rich, generous quality,
and she talked slowly, with a sort of
quiet dignity that was very charming.
"Oh, no, I never went to school,"
said she, smiling. "I had agovernoss
and master at home. My governess
taught mo tho necessary smattering of
history, arithmetic and geography,
and being a Frenchwoman always
spoke her own language with me. My
maid was also French, that being one
of my earliest accomplishments. Then
masters came in for German and
Italian, music and dancing. Oh, dear,
whatcaro they did take! I had to walk
HBjany hours a day, 'take a cold

every month, have my hair brushed
by Coline for an hour every night be
fore I went to bed, and sit for a long I
tune every morning with my shoulder
strained against a back-board to mako
sure that my figure would be good. I
rose ovcry morning at Beven and went
to bed every night at eight. This
Went on until I was sixteen.
"At sixteen." she said, "they took
mo abroad. Evon on tho steamer I
was not allowed to mako any acquaint
ances. I spent a year at school in
Lclpslc, a very small and expensive
place, whoro there, were young German
girls of high degree and a scattering
of English and Americans from the
best families, with whom I was not
only permitted but instructed to be
come intimate. Then mamma came
again, and this time took me to Paris,
where I staid another year at the Sacre
Cosur. Then I was eighteen, and it
was timo to prepare for the important
event of ray coming out. I left the
convent in March, and for tho next
three months wo had a most glorious
timo eettinc my thinirs tocether in
Paris. I assure you mamma spent
quite $10,000 for the gowns, hats and
chiffon she said wero absolutely neces
sary for my first reason. From a mere
child I suddenly bloomed into a young
woman. Mamma took mo with her to
ono or two entertainments in Paris:
after that wo went to London just for
the ond of the season, but it was di
vine; then to Newport for August, to
Lenox for September and October, to
Tuxedo for November, and then to
New York, where early this month
mamma gave a great reception to in
troduce me. And such a good time as
I have had since! I think, after all, it
is a good plan to keep girls in theback
ground .until they are ready to come
out. They enjoy it all the more be-
causo every thing is so new."
Certainly, her education has been an
unmitigated success. She asked me to
come aad see her. which I did the next
day. Sho lived in a-orceous house
on Fifth avenue, away up by the park,
and I found her in a lovely little nest
her own rooms, a dainty chamber
all white and gold, with silver brushes
and combs and glasses strewn all over
the toilet-table, costly favors, trophies
of her many triumphant cotillons
decking the walls. Then she had a
luxurious little boudoir besides. Her
brisk, white-capped maid, a quick
witted Frenchwoman, anticipated her
evcrv want, bhe had but to ask for a
thing, and presto! she had it, what
ever its price, and it really seemed as
if she ought to hare been a perfectly
But ah! The little rift within the
