TRAINING BALLET DANCERS.
A Premiere ^4:::- " tceals Her Own
Mlle. Dorst. the premiere, sat in the
parlor of the Laclede the other day recall
ing the trials she had to undergo as an
unfledged ballet dancer and pro'-,eetiv.
premiere. 'People little know." si s.i
"how much labor and misery go to malt
up the pirouette of a dau ghirl. s
child should not begin to s:.ly d aw n
after she is 10; 7 is the oest age. The
limbs then are at the right degree of sur
pleness to take a pupil over the first di
ticulties and help her on to the lowc
'quadrille,' which she may not hope t-.
win before she is 10. The form then ha.?
gained the roundness and the fiksh antc
muscles the firmness requisite to thr
artistic poses which create such ia
rore. In my case the daily or-t-re com
menced at 1 o'clock. Every norningu
feet were imprisoned in a groove box, he&
against heel and knees turned outwards.
By this process my feet accustomed them
selves ndturally at last to fall into a par
allel line. This is what is called so
tourner. After half an hour of the
groove I was subjected to another variety
of torment. This time I had to raise my
fodt and- place it on a bar level with my
head, which bar I was obliged to hold in
a horizontal line with the hand opposite
the foot. I was exercising. This they
term se casser. After these preliminary
labors we were obliged to go through a
variety of steps and movements.
"The teaching is necessarily long and
painful, the primary object being to bring
by sheer exercise extreme agility and
strength to the joints of the limbs and
feet. Even in the education of the two
great toes, so as to make us capable of
standing and pirouetting on them. a vast
amount of care and time is expended.
And not only must the power be acquired,
but it must be kept up, for which pur
pose constant exercise is required. Other
wise the joints become.stiff and relapse
to an ordinary degree of strength. A
week of repose must be redeemed by
two months of redoubled, incessant toil.
On this condition only can the dancer pre
serve her suppleness and lightness. To
acquire, later, skill and grace in the
movements of the dance is a subordinate
object. One of the most difficult parts
of a dancing girl's education is, for in.
stance, to make her smile with. the rest
of her companions and look gracefully at
here is no rest for a great dancer at
any time of her career. I have scen the
time when, after a four ~hour's lesson, I
have fallen exhausted on the carpet of my
room, where I was undressed, sponged
and resuscitated, totally unconscious of
my situation. The agility and marvel
ous bounds of the evening were obtained
only at a price like this. But there are,
nevertheless, some dancers who, having
by nature greater difficulties to surmount,
martyrize themselves with a willingness
scarcely credible. Nathalie Fitzjames was
an example of this. She invented a new
method, de se tourner et de so casser. at
one and the same time. The art of danc
ing has two branches-en balloune and en
tacquette. The balloune is the school of
Taglioni; it is the lightness combined
with grace, the dce which seems to de
light in and foat- in the air. The tar
quette is-vivacity and rapidity; it is the
little sparkling steps and measures on the
point of the feet; in a word, it is whai
Fanny Ellsler made it."-St. Louis Re
Te- or a scotch zIira.
The . ighlands and Hebrides are the
home of romance. There is a legend for
almost every step you take. But the cruel
est of these are not so cruel as, and none
have the pathos of, the tales of their own
and their father's wrongs and wretched
ness which the p le tel today. The old
stories of the battle field, and of clan
meeting~ ctan in deadly duel, have given
way to stories of the clearing of the land
that the latre or the stranger might have
his shooting and fishing as well as his
crops. At first the people could
not understand it. The evicted went
to the laird, as they would have gone
of old, -and asked for a new home.
* And what was his answer? "I am
not the father of your family."
And th'en, when frightened women ran
and hid themselves at his coming, he
broke the-kettles they left by the well, or
tore into shreds the clothes 'bleaching on
the heather, And, as the people them
selves have it, 'In these and similar ways
he succeeded too well in clearing the
island of its once numerous inha'bitants,
scattering them over the face of the
* globe." There must have been cruelty
mndeed before the.Western Islander, who
ence loved his chief better-than his ow:
life, could tell such tales asThese, even in
