i me story is told in the
first person by Lady Betty Bulkeley, the
pretty young sister of the duke of Stan
forth. She isrto visit America in care of
Mrs. Stuyvesant-Knox (Mrs. Ess Kay ), a
leader of American society, and the lat
ter s cousin. Miss Sally Woodburn. in or
der that her elder sister Victoria's pro
spective nance, Sir Gilbert Man tell, may
not be attracted by her.
CHAPTER II. On board bhip Betty
Is attracted by a. young American steer
age passenger, who saves a child from
drowning. Mrs. Kss Kay, who is very
"exclusive." objects to Betty's interest
In the young man. Betty also meets
I'om Doremus, cousin of Mrs. Van der
Windt, of New York society.
CHAPTER III. Lady Betty gets her
first impressions of America. On the
dock she is rescued from reporters by
the steerage hero, who tells her he is
Jim Brett, employed at the Manhattan
club. New York. In Mrs. Ess Kay's
splendid New York home Betty meets
Lieutenant Parker, brother of her host
ess, who is to take- them to visit West
CHAPTER IV. Vivace, a beautiful
and expensive dog, is sent to Betty.
Mrs. Ess Kay does not know who th
donor is, and Betty does not tell her
mat it is uretl. lieutenant Parker,
whom Betty does not like, makes love
The'n arose a- Hainor. It 'appeared
that they all wiw.ted to make out the
card whatever it was. I asked If I
couldn't have one from each, but it
appeared that you couldn't do that.
My cadet had spoken first, so he said
that he would do It. but Hi? others
could give mo bell b ittotis and chev
rons and decorate fans for me Instead.
" -Do you like hops. Lady Hetty?" In
quired a perfect pet-of a. cadet, who
looked like a cherub in uniform.
"Hops?" I wondered why he should
ask me such an Irrelevant question, but
I answered a Intelligently as I could.
"I don't know much about them. I
think they're graceful, but I don't like
He looked petrified. 'The smell T'
"Yes. It makes ore sleepy."
"I guess we won't give you much
r ha nee to be sleepy tonight," said he
"at our hop."
Then I understood. But what a
funny thing to call a ball a "Lop!"
They explained, too, when they saw
how Ktupid 1 was. that you were an
"officers' lady" if ycu danced with
thorn and walked with them and flirt
ed with them and didn't bother with
cadets, or vice versa. Then 1 decided
at once that 1 would be a cadets' lady,
though I was sorry I had only one
night to be it la. They were sorry,
too, and showed their sorrow in. so
many nice ways that 1 enjoyed myself
immensely and quite saw how nk-e It j
must feel to be out if you are a suc
cess. They wanted to draw lots for
which cadet choc Id take me to Flir
tation Vv'alk. but I said I hnd to go
with Mr. rarker.
He must have been listening from a
distance, though he ought to hire leen
talking with a pretty girl v. ho had no
Iv.'.t, for -he came u; to me at o:i"e a::d
announced that it was time to go now.
He rather put p-j airs of having r.
right to tr!l me v.-lnt 1 must do. and I
did;f.t like it inu:h. especially before
those dear cadets. bs:t it would have
been childish to make a fuss. Be
sides, 1 was his guest.
I went like a disagreeable lamb
sulking on its way to the tdanjjhter;
but. thank goodness. I was engaged
already, for nearly nil the dances, an 1
most of them 'had to be rplit iu two.
there were so many cadets for thrm.
(I think, by the by, I fjiall try to get
Stan to take ir.e to Fandhurrt some
day to Fee if it Is at nil like '.Vest
Toint and whether they have hops.)
Potter made fun of the cadets and
called th-m "whife meat" nnd "littie
things that got In the v.-ay." But
when I asked a straight question he
had to confess that ho had been one
hlmpolf . only vis. years ago. "Iwa:;
tw".ity-two when J graduated." b?-
said. "One of the yo::ng:st men iu
iny class." Which was the fame as
telling me that he is twenty-eight
now. Ten years older than 1 am! It
makes him Eeem quite old. '
Somehow, although he Is so nice to
me In most ways, he stirs me up to
feel antagonistic, as though I wanted
to contradict him and not like things
titat he likes, and I . believe it is the
tame with him about me. for I make
Ills eyes. look angry very often. 1 felt
ha was disappointed because t ad
mired the cadets to much', and had
promised so Tuany dances, and I 'was
in a mood to tease hint. But I fancy
ho Isn't ; the. kind who would take
tensing well, and the scenery he was
Bliowlng me was so lieautiful that
presently I resolved to be good.
. We saw Kosciusko's monument, and
I would Insist upon his telling me
, things about Kosciusko . himself,
though Totter didn't 'seem to think
him Important. And-then fcvbecjaii
winding our way along 'ft' most
quisite path overhanging the river, al-
- ways shadowed by trees. Sometimes
It was cut through a green arbor, with
a light like liquid emeralds. Some
times it ran high on the' rocks. . Some
times it. dipped down close to the wa
. tor, but invariably . there was just
enough room for two, and no more, to
walk side by side.
We .'met reveral couples cadets and
girls, young-officers and girls saun
tering or sitting down close together
In out of the way place?. But by arid
by we- NfeuM.'I to have passed beyond
the Inhabited rone. Then Potter asked
me. if I were not tired from so much
walking uud If I wouldn't like Jto rest.
I said no, and I Tie 'promptly pretended
to be done up, which I thought very
silly. But of course I had to sit down
by him on a rock with a green, moss
"This is what I've been longing for
oil day," said he. ;
I hadn't, and I was thinking about
the cadets. But I agreed that it was
"Yes, it is," he answered, looking at
me. "1 never mw anything so pretty,"
Say, Lady Betty, you're an awful
flirt." " C
I did open my eyes at that. . "A
flirt!" I exclaimed. "I never had a
chance to try being it,"
"1 guess you are born knowing. I've
Jjeen miserable all the afternoon.
Couldn't you see my agony?"
"I didn't notice," said. I. .-
"Ah, that's the trouble. You weren't
thinking of rhe. Of course, I oughtn't
to have cared for those littie boys"
(some of them were inches taller than
he), "but I couldn't help it. I kept
saying inside, 'This is a foretaste of
what I've got to suffer when she's
staying with Katherine at the Moor
tugs.' I don't know when I've leen so
unpopular with nirself. I don't see
how I'm going to get along unless
you'll be nice to me. right now."
"I am nice to you." I said. "As nice
as I know how to be."
"I could teach you to be a lot nicer.
Say, Lady Betty, let me, won't you?"
His eyes, though they are such a
pale blue, had that silly, melting look
In them that my cousin Lovelaud's
have when he talus to me. "Let you
do what?" I asked almost snappishly
for a person sitting in such a lovely
"Teach you to like me. I fell all
over myself In love with you the first
minute I saw you."
"Day before yesterday!" I exclaimed.
"What nonsense. You're poking fun
at me. I don't lelieve in love at first
right at least I don't think I do. Any
how, nobedy could fall In love with me
iu that way."
"Couldn't they, though? That's all
you know nbwt' it." -then. All Amer
icans will fail iu love with you like
that, and it's just what I want to
guard against. I want yoxi to be en
gaged to- me before you go to New
port. Then I shall feel kind of safe."
"Dear me, are you really proposing.
and it isn't in joke?" I asked. "I do
wish you wouldn't."
"Would I propose to Lady Betty
Bulkeley In joke?" he reproached me.
The idea of proposing to any girl
when Aou've only seen her three
dmcsl" ' '
"What did 1 tell you about my friend
iu San Francisco? I was working
slowly up to this, even then."
"Yes, very slowly. I think I've
shown a great deal of patience. Amer
lean girls the beauties. I menu are
quite hurt if a fellow doesn't propose
somewhere along In the first day or
two. They think he can't appreciate
their real worth and that be deserves
what he gct3 if some other chap walks
away with them. Now, I'm not going
to sit still on my perch and see any
thing else walking off with you.'
I couldn't help laughing.'' "I'll call
for help If I think tliere's no danger,"
said I, "but I can't promise more than
that. I didn't coriie over to America
to pick up a husband.
He looked at me rather queerlywhen
I said that, almost as if he thought
had come for that express pnrpos-
-and was trying to conceal it. But of
course he couldn't lie so horrid as to
suppose such a thii:g really, and I must
have Imagined the strange expression
If he only knew I came away so that
another girl . might be sure to get a
kuslKihd. aud I'm not allowed to go
back until he has been got!
"They're just growing around on
blacklerry bushes arid In strawberry
patches for you to pick and choose,'
said Totter, "and that's what worries
me. I'm a wildly jealous fellow. I've
got two months' leave so as to le with
you at Newport, and I tell yori I shall
ece a bright, -beautiful 'crimson If tod
many dudes come fooling around the
shanty.- Say, won't yon just, play .we're
engaged anyhow and see how you like
It?" - , ,
But now I was really cross and
wouldn't, hear a worJ more of such
nonsense, so I jumped up. and he had
to scramble up too. -
"If you've really proposed which I
doubt," said I, "you .must pleasa' un
derstand that you've been formally re
fused. But I forgive yon because I
believe you must have been chaffing
and because it's my first proposal, so at
all event?! I cant die without having
had at least one. Now, do be sensible
Vic's, and " it ' is a rag compared to
Sally's and ' Mrs. Ess "Kay's gorgeflns
things. But when Sally had done my
hair iii ,a new way (they had left
Louise behind, as there was no room
for her) and fastened around my. throat
a lovely, string of pearls she brought
on purpose I loooked quite nice. .
The "hop" was in a great big room
which the cadets use for something or
other, I forget 'what! and it was dec"-.
orated with . quantities of. American
flags. There were lots of' girls the
oungest things! Hardly any of them
could have been out but there were
even more men; counting officers and
cadets, at least two for each girl.
The card which' my particular' cadet
had talked about making for me was
'Arc iott going to he an officers' or a
a programme, with all the dances and
the men's names and illuminations
which he had put on himself. It was
beautiful, and I told him that I would
always keep it. I daneed every dance.
with two partners for each, aud there
was a cotillon afterward with favors
to remind the girls who got them of
West Point; little flags and buttons
and bits of gold lace, but I was very
lucky, for some of the friends I had
made in camp had smuggled me spe
cial tilings, and I shall have quite a
collection of sergeant's stripes and cor
poral's chevrons, belt buckles and beau
t if ul bright bell buttons with initials
scratched on them.
I don't believe Vic had half so much
fun at her first ball as I had at mine.
although hers is so many seasons ago
now that I can't remember what she
said about it. I was only a little girl
then, and she wasn't in the habit of
telling me things as she Is now.
Although I didn't get to bed till
after 2, I was up early next morning,
because I had promised my best ca
dets that I -would-be. at morning pa
rade, or whatever they call It. to say
goodby. Sally went with me, and It
was quite an affecting parting. I
shall never forget those dear boys If I
live, to be a hundred, though I can't
remember any of their names, as after
all I lost the card I meant. to keep always.
LL the preparations that
Mrs. Ess Kay had to
. make for Newport kept
net ttl-fi rt-iriPA ill ro til
terribly hot, but I was
not sorry to stay, because we did so
mauy amusing things.
Mr. Doremus was detained, too by
his tailor, he said so we saw a 'good
deal of him, as Mrs. Van der Windt
had left for her Newport cottage. We
did go to a roof garden entertainment
after all, and It was most fascinating,
but quite without the feeling that you
might fall off, which I had expected
to have. I saw the moou coining up
and gilding thousands of roofs, and I
couldn t help wondering which was
the roof of that club where poor, hand
some Jim Brett was employed, though
of course it was impossible to speak
of him to any one except Vivace,
We lunched one day at an enormous
and very fashionable red brick hotel
called the Waldorf-Astoria and went
Into a Turkish room and had delicious
things to eat in a beautiful restaurant
which had not at all an out of season
air, though Mrs. Ess Kay said that
most of the well groomed looking peo
pie whom I suspected of being leaders
of ,the Four Hundred were only "trip'
pers." I do wonder, by the way, why
one always has an Innate sense of ton
tempt for trippers and longs to lie
sniffy and show one's own superiority?
We must all be trippers somewhere
and sometimes, or we would never see
anything' of the world indeed,' I sup
pose I am by way of being a tripper
now. But one never 'seems" to regard
people thlnli- Tfew 'York ' a' one noua
place compared 'to their trwn; which U
really wonderful and most Interesting,
as I shall, find out if I see.lt. I wish
I could, but I suppose I sban t, a I
came over to' visit Mrs." Ess Kay, not
to do sightseeing.
The Eecond day after we came back
from West Point. ns I Went downstairs
the first thing In the morning, I heard
Mrs. Ess Kay at th tlephoe. which
la in a little room along a corridor oft
the fountain court; :
She was having a' long conversation
with some one, laughing and chatting
just as If she Tvc?e, talking to, a vis
itor, and presently iny name came In.
"Yes, Lady Betty" Bu ; no. not pro
nounced that way. my child. As if it
were PpWled B-U-p-K-yes, that's
right. Such a pretty girl, a perfect
deaf. -I expect the' men will be wild
about her ai Newport.'-". Potter raves
over her. Ha-h'a. ha! " Do you think
80? Well, perhaps. ; I've known strau-
ger .things to happen. 'No, it's not her
father, but Iter brother.' who's the duke.
Awfully good looking. -1 wish he could
have come loo. But yon see Sally
wouldn't You know", what Sally Is.
No., she's never got over that old af
fair. Southern women are so romantic.
Yes, I'll bring dear little Betty' witti
me if it won't tire you. She" 1
Then I began -to think 1 ought to let
her know I was there, for one hates to
eavesdrop. So I yelled at the top of
my lungs that I was iif the hail wait
ing to go to breakfast nnd couldn't
help hearing' ev6ry word she said.
However," she didn't mind a bit and
called to me to come into the telephone
"I'm talking to a friend of mine who
has just been moved back to lier own
apartment after getting over appendi
citis," she. explained. "Poor thing.
she's such an indefatigable society
woman, and she does so hate bein
stuck in the city-at thU season. I've
just been promising to run in and see
her this afternoon, and I'd like to take
you if you'll go; She'd love to see you
I'll introduce you now by phone."
With that she began to chat Into the
thing again In a chummy sort of way
which seemed quite uncauny, as I
have always looked upon a telephone
as an official kind of machine winch
yoti prepared for with fasting and
prayer and only had recourse to when
strictly necessary for important busi
ness. "Here's Lady Betty." said Mrs.
Ess Kay. Tin. going to Introduce you.
ow, Betty, take bold of the
"Oh, I can t. I don't know how. 1
never uiu. I objected, feeling as
she were going to .fem e me into tak
ing gas against my will.
She would have me try. so I did. as
it's very difficult to oppose Mrs. Ess
Kav even in the smallest thing. But
I couldn't hear a word; only a horrid
buzzing, so she had to let me" off and
just tell me that the lafly we were to
call on was Mrs. Harvey KIchmaunt
"If you're going .to.. stay long In
America you'll have to get used to the
phone." said she. "We tlo half onr
shopping and some of our-,. calling and
make about all our appointments that
way. If we didn t there u lc more
cases of nervous prostration than there
are, and goodness knows there nro
enough now even since blue rays
have come in. Many love affairs ore
carried on. practically entirely by
phone, and I've heard that In case of
necessity marriage ceremonies can be
performed by it"
"How about divorces?" I asked. And
I was quite serious, but Mrs. Ess Kay
dlun t seem to think the question
worth an answer. So she switched
ou her niend - and rang up two or
three tradespeople of whom she order
ed scent and chocolates and some new
books and told a manicure to call.
Then we went in to breakfast
It appears that the manicure person
is a great catch, and you are lucky tc
get him without snaking an appoint
ment long beforehand.' He does things
to your;fect, too, though I dared not
ask what, and Mrs. Ess Kay intended
to stop in for him all the morning.
While she was talking about this
Sally was glancing Dver letters, and
there was-one in which she seemed
particularly interested. She looked up
from it suddenlywhen Mrs. Ess Kay
said she was not going out and ex
claimed: "Oh," then I may have Betty.
How nice! I do so want to show her
the park." . ..' '
"I'll go with you," Totter broke In
quickly, but Sally , shook her head.
"No, I Want her to ' myself, thank
you just for this once.'; , -
Potter looked cross, but said no
more,' and It was arranged that Sally
nnd I should start in about at hour.
Mrs. Ess Kay thought we ought to
get off at once, as it would be cooler.
But for some reason Sally did not like
that idea. Meanwhile she ran' out her-
"MrA-WJii:T''-:v.!lU5JUU'.'i'.Ji. m-.J SSSf
eelf on an trrand, but did uo.t offer r?
Even people who have absolfctvly
nothing to do except to amuse them
selves appear to like waking p and
having. -breakfast . much earlier than
we do. This morning, as Uouul, we
had finished "breakfast by half past 0.
and by a quarter past 10 Snlly had
come back to fetch Vivace and me for
I hadn't yet been shown Central
park. Mrs. Ess Kay raid it was hor
rid out of Reason. But Sally didn't
agree with her. And I thought it
lovely, . more like the Bois de Bou
logne than- our park, and yet with an
extraordinary individuality of its own.
There were only a few people , of our
sort, riding or driving, but loU of
children were playing about. 'and it
was wonderful that the trees and
grass and lloweru could have kept r.o
fresh through such tremendous beat.
I'm sure if we had weather like that
in England the whole vegetable king
dom "would go on strike.
Whether It was the Iveauty of the
park or whether it was something in
herself I don't know, but Sally Wool
burn was iu a sentimental mood. She
is generally full of fun, in her soft.
quiet little way, but 'this morning she
was ali poetry and romance. She
quoted Tennyson and several modern
American pwts wluve names I w
ashamed to say I didn't even know, as
their verses seemed charming, and
when she had found a certain narrow
shady path which she had been looking
for -suddenty:she said:- "Let's talk alKHii
love. What do you think about love,
"I don't know anything about it yet
except from books," said I. "Mother
doesn't like my reading modern novels
much, and we haven't many in the li
brary, for Vie reads French ones ami
hides them. But there are other books
besides novels that tell about love
some heavenly ones."
"I should' think there were," said Sal
ly. "But I didn't ask you what you
knew; I asked what you thought. Have
you ever thought about what it would
bo like to be in love?"
"Yes," I had to admit shamefacedly.
for. as she is not a man. luckily it
wasn't necessary to tell a lib. "llavu
