Other .sights lis Well.
The Marquis do Castellane, the distin
guished father of Count de Castellme,
who recently married the late Jay Gould's
jounger daughter, Miss Anna Gould, has
just written a magazine article with the
title "Fifteen Dais In the United States."
The maniuls came over to attend his ion's
wedding, nnd ho evidently kept his eyes
wide open in the two weeks he was here.
31. de Castellane's article appears in the
current number of the- Revue de Paris, a
xery dignified and conservative magazine
of about the character of the North Amer
In a chapter devoted to "Society In
America" M. de Castellane s.ijs:
"The number of clubs In America is con
siderable. The smallest town possesses its
own, nnd all are well furnished, provided
with the same luxury and the same com
fort. Tho American, his work llnlshed,
lives there, makes himself at home theie
more than any other people. He llnds ease
there; that Is enough. The society of
women does not trouble him. Gallantry,
in the decent sense of the word, Is un
known to him, and the exchange of super
ficial wit matters little to him Thcbo are
things of Infeilor quality or, &t least,
negative; the bring in nothing.
"Hence the strange aspect of V. e drawing
rooms. They are devoid of men and nre al
most exclusively lllled with women. Left to
themselves from 10 o'clock In tho morning
till G o'clock in the evening, while the of
fices of their husbands aie open, thev are
reduced to giving one another luncheons,
exclusively temlnlne, where they drink,
where they eat, where they gossip, but
where neither a look of tenderniss nor of
admliatlon Is exchanged. Therefore,
American women, whatever may be their
htauty, their fieshness, theli tempera
ment, are, more than any otheis, sheltered
from tho temptations destructive of do
mestic pence. Lacking men, they lack
f,, "nts. If they never put their loot on
Huropoan continent their husbands'
. -i- would have very few Injuries to sus
aln "If it were not for divorce, of which
they make capricious use the number of
women having had two husbands being
countless one might say of American
women that they are the least erring wives
in the world
"This lack of social framework produces
a freedom of manners of which tho effects
