A BEAUTIFUL OCTOROON,
TIIE INVII ED GUEST OF A BLUE
Creates a Great Senfation and Hnch
of Comment, but Is Finally
Accepted by Soclet j.
Louisville (,'ommerc'ial : Sjcioty in
the bluegraes town of Vers Miles and
the provircielly aristocratic couaty of
Woodford is in the course of a vielent
shake up, and a eharelesj masi of ru
mors concerning it have jiiat reached
Louisville, and aociety hern tobi in
unleon to the flurry at VersaUles. Re
cently the newspapers of L xiegt in
made anonymous reference to a social
sensation at Versailles, on a icount of
the appearance in society of a young
lady who bcre the unmistakable marks
of an octoroon. This is the thing in a
nn shell: Two years a?o Miss Saa.e
Hart, the daughier of Mrs. Wm. Hart,
a rica widow of the highest cocial
eUtns, who lives In a caitle on one of
the finest est ate a in the famous bluo
grass land, attended a fashionable
boarding echool in New Yi rk. Her
loom-mata and chum w.s a beauti
ful Mss Bate, of Albany, N. Y..
and the warmest eort of a loyal and
so'itimontal schoolgirl attachment
quickly f prang op hetweenthe two. It
was not a great while, however, before
it became anowu that t'lis Mips Blake
waa an octoroon. Even thie, however,
did not team to lessen the a'.tarhment
of the warm hearted and high bred
Kentucky girl for her new friwml, and
die paid no attention ti the little
echool acandnl which followed the
distovery. So in after this Mre. Hart
w.8 advised of the matter by an ia
tereated friend in New York, and she
wro:e qirckly to her daughter to se
cure another room mate. But school
girl attachments, although romantic
and sentimental, are far more loyal
than the politic and hypocritical
friend-hits of the men end women of
fashion, and so little MissSu an de
clined to give up her friend, even at
her mother's bidding. So the two
girls remained true to their vows, and
when Mies Hart left the echool to
ro'urn to her beautiful home in Ken
tucky, Blie took with her the sworn
prolines of her Northern Mend to
coma s:me day and visit her in
the B'.uegrasa land. It seems that
and after this the Harts went abroad
and met Mies Bake and her rich
father in Pari i. Mr. Hart found Mr.
Blake a refined and intell g)nt gentle
man, and hie daughter, the octoroon,
a aweet, beautiful and highly accom
pliehed girl, showing little evidence of
the taint in her blood that had. caused
the scandal at echool. Like her daugh
ter, it is said that Mm. Hart became
warmly at'ached to toe young lady
and joined Mist Susan iu the invita
tion previously and often extended to
have the young lady come tj ''Spring
Hill," Mia Halt's castle home rrnong
the foreet trees in Woodford c unty,
to visit them. To make a long ttiry
ahoit, about three weeks ago Miss
Blake came to pay tne vieit, and tne
Harts introduced ber to society. 1;
s ems, however, that many of the
Woodford county people were already
aware ol the school ecanda', at d were
qu ck to discover Mies Blake'a iden
tity witn tne scno wm octoroon.
Tbey raised a howl, lhegcod breed
ing, the modesty or the rumy accom
plishments ol tne young lady could
not reconcile th?iu to the faH that she
was an octoroon th at there was "nig
ger" blood in her veins. The' ! story
went liko wildfire all over thab'uo
gresi land, ard nothing else has been
talked ot in Versailles, ran kfort and
Lexington for a fortnight. Within the
last tw.) or three days the srandul has
reached L-.uiavil'o, where Mis j Hart is
well known in ftshiornble society, but
people here have i,ot joined In the
etrio.nres which the people cf the
bluegrnrs country have heaped upon
the Haita and their friend. In the
meantime, despite the a andal and the
goslr, M ss Blake continues to visit
at Spring Hill, and has been kindly re
ceived by many of the beet people. In
deed, the very people who have raised
the nowi and who have been the au
thor of the eevoreet cecaurei have
c tiled upon the young lady and smoth
ered her with attention. Thii,
perhaps, is due partly to their
curiosity and to tlHr desire not
to offend the Harts, who are th social
leaders of that ssct'on. It ia aaidHhat
two matt bus penons attempted to
have two mulatto bouseuoaius get in a
fdiaeton and call upon ' the young
adv, but tlie housemaid" were too
well bred to essay the insult to Miss
liar, and declined an offer of $5
apiece to do it. From what source
Miss Blake gets the blood that makes
her an octoroon nobody knows. Siie
ia of a lich conipltxion, with beau'iful
dark brown hair and eyes, and is suf
fi ivntly accomplished to make a strik
ing imp esrioa in any society. Her
axe is about "0 years, end her figure is
petite. It ia slid that she it well
known in Albany.
