The great iiicht at Mnbillo was on
n Sunday. Up to 9 o'clock the strang
er wandering in would have had no
suspicion of the Snrdanapalian orglca
enlivening its exquisite scenery n lit-
Lie later on. The entrance , boyoud
the flaming gaslight making the word
"Mnbillo , cave no demure hint of the
scones within. Nor having entered
would the stranger suspect for totno
time the wicked transports excited by
the lightstho music , the company. It
seemed rnthcr the park of some af-
lluonb personage arranged en fete.
iVt 10 o'clock sixty pieces crnshcd. the
signal for the dance. Then from
every direction dnmcs in such ci'ntomca
is can bo soon only in a Parisian pub
lic , or n "high-life" saloon , gathered
on the waxed floors under the central
pavilion. The inuiicinnn installed in
the center hold the time for the group
ment. Then , nil being ready , the ot-
trnordinnry carnmnpnolo began. It
was n paroxysm of gyrations for which
the word dance gives but n fcoblo de
scription. If the music were n waltz ,
the movement was an indescrib
able interlocking of arms , legs ,
hands and feet , such as was n aver soon
outside the contortions of Wnlpurgia
night , or the uncanny doings that daz
ed Tarn O'Shnntor at Alloway'o haunt
ed kirk. Movement comes to most
heels when the irrosistnblo music of
the waltz strikes up ; to the French
man , mndtiroo comes. Ho loeis his
mint and titaniUms himself to the rap-
11 ro of the moment ; he embodies the

la the delirious 'whirl there wore
moments when the amazed spectator
would have sworn that the rovelora
ivoro a mirage , for their foot Deemed
to bo in the air and their heads , if
they had any , were invisible. Of late
days , however , the dancing was most
ly done by paid mon and women , who
made it mare a gymnastic exhibition
than a feta dansanto. These were
the Amazons that electrified strangers
by lightly removing the hat of an un
suspecting looker-on by a sudden shot
of the < foot. For when the dance begins -

laughter ; then dismissing the discom
fited partner by a neat kick on the
rim a his hat , which would send it
flying far away among the bushes , or
perhaps under the foot of the dancers.
In the latter case ' the price of regain
ing it'was inovitab'Iy an invitation to
the Amazon to have such a "consum-
nmUon" ( refreshment ) as she might
command. Shogenerally | commanded
loaiething that increased the profits
of the bar enough to allow her a handsome -
some percentage. For this is ono of
the terms upon which the cocottes are
admitted , that they should keep them
reasonably assiduous in their atten
tions to the refreshment countora.
Of Into the only nights that Mabillo
presented any of its old-timo attrac
tions was following the "Gfnnd Prix. "
1'hen dukes , princes , great dames and
what not flocked to the godless scone.
The dancing resumed its old gayety ,
most of the women masked , and the
mon , too , if they desired to escape ob
servation. The adrauuiion , raised to
ton frances ( $2) , assured an audience
equal to the enhanced prices of the
night. The lights were doubled , two
orchestras , instead of ono , kept up in
cessant music from 10 to 3 , nnd the
gnyoty was correspondingly feverish ,
i'ho winningH of the turf wont in
sumptuous suppers in the grottoes and
cabinets. The waiters , who paid high F
prices for their places , made fortunes
oa these golden nights. All that was
famous in Parisian cocottorio could bo
boon in toilets rivaling the Ministerial
receptions. The manners and conven
tion ! ) were simple , No introductions
wuiu necessary. No ono was offended
by trnUiititriui ftnd comments. The
l'nr aian made it a point to bo present
mi the Buiulny night of the Grand
Prix euro of seeing ministers of state ,
inincea incognito and kings in exile ,
iiontondmi ; on equal terms for the vo-
mil beauties of the tote. It-washia
itevotion to Mabillo and its mysteries
that brought the sybarite Plon-Plon in
