The Girl of the Period.
A SAVAGE ONSLAUGHT UPON THE " PAST j
YOUNG LADIES" OF OUR DAY.
[Fruin the Lond-u Saturday Review.]
Time was when the stereotyped phrase,
li a fair young English girl," meant the
ideal o?' womanhood, to us, at least, of
home, birth and breeding. It meant a
creature generous, capable and modest ;
something franker than a French wo
man, more to be trusted than an Italian,
as brave as an .American, but more re
fined, as domestic as a German and
more graceful. It meant a girl who
could l)e trusted alone if heed be, be
cause of the innate purity: and dignity
of her nature, but who was neither bold
iu bearing nor masculine in mind; a girl
who, when she married, would be her
husband's friend and companion, but
never his rival ; one who would consid
er their interests as identical, and liol
hold him as just so much fair game for
spoil ; who would make his house his
true home and place of rest, not a mere
passage place for vanity and ostenta
tion to go through ; a tender mother, an
industrious housekeeper, a judicious mis
tress. We prided ourselves as a nation
on our women. We thought we had
the pick of all creation in this fair
young English girl of ouio, and en
vied no other men their own. We ad
mired the languid grace and subtle fire
ol' the south ; the docility and childlike
affectionateness of the east seemed tb us
sweet and simple and restful ; the viva
cious sparkle of the trim and sprightly
Parisienne was a pleasant little excite
ment when we met with it in its own
domain ; but our allegiance never wan
dered from our brown-haired girls at
home, and our hearts were less vagrant
than our fancies. This was in the old
time, and when English girls were con
tent to be what God and nature had
made them. Of late years we have
changed the pattern, and have given to
thc world a race of women as utterly
unlike the old insular ideal as if we had
created another nation altogether. The
girl of the period and the fair young
girl of the past have nothing in com
mon save ancestry and their mother
tongue ; and even of this last the mod
ern Version makes almost a new lan
guage, through the copious addition-? it
has received from the current slang ol
The girl of the period is a creature
who dyes her hair and paints her cheeks,
?i-: the lirst articles of her personal re
ligion ; whose sole idea of life is plenty
o'' tun and luxury ; and whose dress is
the object of such thought and intel
lect as she possesses. Her main en
deavor in this . is to outvie her neigh
bors in the extravagance of fashion. No
matter whether, as m time of crinoline,
she sacrificed decency, or, as now, in
the time of tra: .is, she sacrifieee clean
liness ; no matter, either, whether she
makes herself a nuisance and an incon
venience to every one she meets. The
girl of the period has done away with
s ieh moral muflishness as consideration
for others, ur regard for counsel and re
buke. It was ad very well in old
fashioned times, when fathers and moth
ers had son ?? authority, ami were treated
with respeuv, to be tutored and made
to obey, but she is far too fast and flour
ishing to be stopped in mid-career by
these slow old morals ; and, as she
dresses to please herself, she does not
care if she . displeases- every ono else.
Nothing is too exaggerated for her viti
ated taste; and things which in them
selves would" be useful reforms if let
alone, -become monstrosities worse than
those which they have displaced so soon
a-; she begins to manipulate and improve.
If a sensible fashion lifts the gown out
of thc mad, she raises hers midway to
th? knee. If the absurd structure of a
wire and buckram, once called a bonnet,
is modified to something that shall pro
tect the wearer's face without putting
out the eyes of hor companion, she cuts
hers down to four straws.and, a rosebud,
or a t!tg of- lace and a bunch of gla.'s
beads. If there is a reaction against
an excess of Rowland's .Macassar, and
hair shiny and sticky with grease is
thought le-?s nice than if left clean and
healthy and crisp, she dries and frizzes
and sticks hers ont on end like certain
swages in Africa, or lets it wander
down her back like Madge Wildfire's,
and thinks herself all the more beauti
ful the nearer, she approaches in look
like to a maniac of negroes. With pu
rity of taste she has lost also that far
more precious purity and delicacy of
perception which sometimes mean more
than appears on the suffaee. What the
dciniiMade does in its frantic efforts to
excite attention, she also does in imita
tion. If some fashionable d?vergonde:
en ccidenee is reported to have come out
with her dress below her shoulder-blades,
and a good strap for all the sleeve
thought necessary, the girl of the period
follows suit next day, and then wonders
that men sometimes m?take her for her
prototype, or that mothers of girls not
quite so far gone as herself refuse her as
;i companion for their daughters. She
has blunted the lim.- edge of feeling so
much that she cannot understand why
she should'bo condemned for an imita
tion of fonn .which does not include im
itation of fact ; she cannot be made to
see that modesty of appearance and vir
tue ought to be inseparable, and that no
good girl can afford to appear bad, un
der penalty .of receiving the contempt
awarded to the bad.
This imitation of the dani-monde in
dress leads to something in manner and
feeling, not quite so pronounced, per
haps, but far too like to be honorable to
herself or satisfactory to her friends. It
leads to slang, bold, talk, and fastness ;
to the love of pleasure and indifference
to duty ; to the desire of money before
either love or happiness ; to uselessness
at home, dissatisfaction with the monot
ony of ordinary life, and the honor of
all useful work; in a word, to the worst
form of luxury and selfishness, to the
most fatal effects arising from want of
high principle and absence of tender
feeling. The girl of the period envies
the queens of the d-nd-monde far more
than she abhors them. ?She sees them
rrorgeously attired and sumptuously :ip
ooii?ted, and she kriows them to be flat
tered, feted, and courted with a certain
disdainful admiration of which she
catche^ only the admiration while she
ignores the disdain! They have all for
which her SJUI is hungering, and she
never stops to reflect at what a price
they have bought their gains, and what
fearful moral penalties they pay for their
sensuous pleasures. She sees only the
coarse gilding on the base token, and
shuts her eyes to the hideous figure in
the midst, and the foul legend written
round the edge. It is this envy of the
pleasures,vand indifference to the sins
of these women of the demi-monde
which is doing such infinite mischief to
the modern girl. They brush too close
ly hy each other, if not in Actual deeds,
yet in aims and feelings; for the luxury
which is bought by vice with the one is
the thing of all in life most passionately
desired by the other, though she is not
yet. prepared to pay quite the same
prie?, unfortunately, she has already
paid too much-ali that once gave her
distinctive national character. No one
can say of the modern English girl that
she is tender, loving, retiring, or domes
tic. The old fault so often found by
keen sighted French, women, that she
was so fatally romanesque, so prone to
sacrifice appearances and social advan
tages for love, will never be set down
to the girl of the period. Love indeed is
the last thing she thinks of. and the least
of the dangers besetting her. Love in
a cottage, that seductive dream which
used to vex the heart and disturb the
calculation of prudent mothers, is now
a myth of past ages. The legal barter
of herself for so much money, repre
senting so much dash, so much luxury
and pleasure-that is her idea of mar
riage ; the only idea worth entertaining.
For all seriousness of thought respect
ing the duties or the consequences of
marriage, she has not a trace. If chil
dren come, they find but a stepmother's
cold welcome from her ; and if her hus
band thinks that he has married any
thing thai is to belong to him-a tacens
ct placent: ILVOT pledged to make him
happy-the sooner he wakes from his
hallucination and understands that he
has simply married some one who will
condescend to spend his money on her
self, and who will shelter her indiscre
tion behind the shield of his name, the
less severe will be his disappointment.
She has married his house, his carriage,
his balance at the banker's, his title ;
and he himself is just thc inevitable
condition clogging the wheel of her for
tune, at best an adjunct to be tolerated
