A BULL FIGHT.
1(4 Terrors and Horrors—Glory to the
Bull.
The murmur of thousands of vo'ces,
the tries of the venders of oranges and
fresli. water, and the cheers of eager
spectators, as different movements were
made preparatory to the combat, all
formed a contused roar, comparable to
notliinp: I ever heard before. At length
there came .a shrill blast of trumpets,
thC 'signal for th(3 area to be cleared of
all its .lingering occuprnts. In a few
moments the lust had left the inclosure.
ThS ar^na ,wtis empty. Another flour
ish of trumpets, and in through one of
•the principal entrances marched the
future actors in the hloody drama. At
the head came the picadors, two men on
horseback with lance in hand, and
'dressed in brilliant colors. Next came
the chulo8, bearing on their arms the
scarlet cloaks with' nliich it would be
their duly to infuriate the bull. These
were followed by four or five bandiller
os, who were toact in a way which I
shall presently describe. Last of all ap
peared, in the place of honor, tho inat
adoers, who finally give the bull his
death blow.
After a description of the costumes,
with which all are mure or less familiar,
he says: Two officers dressed in black
and with long nodding plumes in their
hats now rode in, and halting before the
royal box, asked permission of the gov
ernor if the spectacle to admit the bull.
Tho governor threw to them the kev of
the den where the bull was confined,
and riding rapidly acroBS the arena the
officers handed this to the keeper of the
gate. A moment of breathless suspense
followed, during which the officers dis
appeared. Not a sound was audible.
Kvery eyo was fixed on the gateway.
Fifteen thousand heurts were beating
with excitement. As for myseir, I con
fers it was one of the most intensely ex
citing moments of my life. 1 cannot
well account for it but in the vast multi
tude around me, the thought that I was
actually in Kpain and about to witness
its great ttional sport, the dread that I
had of tho bloody characteristics, and
then, too, tlie fact thai three ladies were
with me who might possibly faint on my
lialids—all these combined to agitate me
greatly.
ir
At length, almost tielore 1 was pre
iared for it, the gate swung open and a
mgo, iron-iiray bull rusliwl forth from a
perfectly dark den into the arena. l-\ir
a moment, astonisln and dazzled by
the spectacle around him, and startled
by.tlje yells of thousands of voices, he
lialte'd, hiB nostrils quivering. Then,
•catching sight ol the cmilos, who at a
safe distance were waving their red
cloaks at him, he lowered his head and
dashed at them with lury. Nimble as
squirrels, these men leaped lightly over
(lie tailing o'the arena into a circular
space beyond, ami the bull stopped with
a violtnt shock within a foot of their re
treating heels. With a snort that de
noted mischief the hull glared around
him. Twenty feet away was a picador
on horsehacli. Sitr.iiglft at him the bull
now went. The lior.-e, whose eyes were
blinded by a cloth, obedient to his rid
er's spur, wheeled to one side, and the
picadtfr pressed his lance into the bull's
shoulder as he passed, inflicting only a
slight wound, however, for the iron on
the lance is purposely made very short.
The bull turned savagely about, an.i ir
ritated by the cut, charged once mora
upon the horse. Horrible, most hor
rible!
This time the picador could do noth
ing, and both horns plunged to the very
hilt into the horse's side. Ten thousand
voices greeted this with yells of approval
"Bravo,Toro! Bravo,
Toro!" resounding
in deafening shouts from all parts of the
arena. This was bad enough, but I felt
almost faint when 1 saw tho bull actual
ly shako his head up and down, until,
by his enormous strength, he lifted
bqth liorse and rider from the ground
and reiled them ^over in the dust. All
was now frenzy and excitement. The
bull drew out his dripping horns and
prepared for a new charge. If he made
it, it would be all over with
the picador. But now the chulos
came to the rescue. Three or lour flaun
ted tliei' cloaks in his face and drew his
attention tothemselves. ,.\sheadvanced,
howev er, these agile men si.pped aside
and the uli struck only tne cloaks,
which passed lightly over his head.
While this was being done other men
had assisted the fulling picador to get
upon he feet. lie could not have risen
without Hi for besides being bruised
by his fall, his legs were encased in iron
plates of great weight, made to resist
the bull's horns. As tor the poor hor=e,

die in agony, writhing up­
on ihe sand while his ii blood poured
out in streams, as he struggled impati
ently to rise. But by this time tno bull had
charged in lury upon the other picador,
Almost the same s.-ene was now repeat
ed, save that the hull Buccseded in
iilunging only one horn into the horse's
side. Therefore, for the next five or
ten minutes, the wretched aiiitnal actua
aliv giilloped about the arena, urged
hither and 'hi'lier by his rider, while
his entrails were diavginir around his
heels and the blood was gushing forth
in copious jets! I need hardly say that
the ladies of my party thudded their
eyes from this "horrible sight. A Ger
man lady near uie wept. But the fair
.Spaniards seemed lo think of nothing
but the men and the bull.
The second horse also dropped in the
agonies of death, and as now picadors
came ii"., the bull within fifteen minutes
had killed fit een horses outri lit und
horribly wounded a fourth! lie present
ly stopped as if exhausted. The prac
ticed eye of the governor detected now
the moment for a change of tactics. He
gave a signal, which was fullowed by
blast from the trumpets. The picadors
at once withdrew fiotn the arena much
to our relief, although the weltering
corpses of three horses still tav upon
the Bind. The chulos now came prom
inenily forward to take a more
decided part in the cont. st than they
had previonsly assumed,and to per orm
same of their most during feats', that of
jumping over the head ol the charging
bull and giving him a love pat on the
neck wiili the foot in pa-s ng! This they
never woiiM Tiave dared to do when the
bull was fresh' but now fatigue rendered
hia charges shorter anil- more easily
avoided. Do you wonder that he was
wearied? Up to this time his exerti ms
bail been tremwidn.is. The perspiration
gtintencd on his punting fi fes,, while
blood coated both shoulders wit ha ernn
son man' le, proving that the lances of
the picadors iiftd done tlieir work.
But a still more dariiif. deed than this
was seen, whenachuloactuatly ventured
to leap over lhe charging bull by means
of a vaulting pole. Think of the skill and
coolness required to leap thus 'at the
right moment. For if he rises too quick
ly. the bull has an
opportunity to halt in
time to receive hi in on his uplifted horns.
In any case the pole is almost certain to
be knocked from under him, and the
mnn mu«t see to it that he alights upon
his feet, or he will be speedily dis
patched. But, after this sport had
gone on for some time, a signal was uiv
en for a new change of ictics, and the
bandilleros made tiieir appearance
to exhibit feats of even
greater daring anl adroitness.
One after another placed himself before
the bull and goaded him to madness by
shaking in his face two colored wands
on the extremities of which were
twisted barbs. When the angry animal
made a d.tsli at his tormentor the crit
ical moment came. The bandillero
w.iited until the head of the charging
beast was within his grasp, and tli?n,
reaching between the advancing horns,
thrust the colored shafts into the shoiil
dors of tho bull. There was a horrible
fascination in this spectacle, for it was
done just as the bull lowered his head
to toss his enemy to the sb*\ At one
instant the man seemed doomed to in
stant death. The next we suv him leap
lightly aside, whilt. the bailed bull laii
ly btunded up and down under the stab
of tho two dans which remained fixed
in his bleeding shoulders. Another
bandillero now took his position be.ore
the bull, and the same exciting scene
took place, until, by asuccesion of sueh
penorirauces, the wearied and tor
mented auiintdboro many of these shafts
which he in vain attempted to shake of
his flesh.
Another flourish of trumpets now gave
tho signal tor the closing scene. Tne
madore entered the arena, and being an
especial favorite with the public, was re
ceived with exulUlion and cheers. With
slow and dignified step this admired
hero and pet of tho ladies ndvanc :d to
the royal box, and asked permission to
kill the bull in a way that should do
honor to all Spain. This being granted,
he turned abom and faced the bull. In
one hrtiid he curried a small red cloak,
in the other a stronu Toledo sword.
Advancing to within a few feet of the
bull he irritated him a little with the
cloak, and pretended to make few
passes, in order to study hia wiles. If
he be a bold bull which he thus tries,
there is Ii tie datiuer, for such a one us
ually shuts his eyes and madly rushes
ahead but the shy bulls—those which
advance and then retreat, and seek to
outwit their nutagonists—require close
attention. A skill,ul metadore can al
ways choose tlie a:e where he will
lure the bull, and finally kill him and
if the metndore's lady love bo in the
ampitheater depend upon it, it is al
ways at tho point of tho arena nearest
her that the bull will die.
At length tho hull mane a grand rush
forward. This was whit the matadore
desired. Instead of leaping asid *, he
planted his feet firmly, and actually
met the monster upon the point of his
sword, lint in his thrust consummate
skill was shown. It was no ordinary
thrust. It is considered a disgrace to
stab a bull any where except j.ist at the
point of union bsuveuu the neck and
shoulders. In this case the hand of the
matadore was firm and his eye suro for
the sword was buried to the bill in the
precise spot required and while the
victor whirled to one side and bowed to
the audience, the hull bolted, staggered
a few steps, and fell. It was a brave
bull, however, for he refused to die
without one more effort. It was indeed
a melancholy eight, to see him raise
again, drop on Ins knees, and give one
last brave toss of the heat.. Then all
that a moment before was fire, passion
and life, fell in an ins ant—dead—for
ever!—.Stoddard's Red Letter Days

A Professional Beauty.
A few years a «, fashionable society
in Engb-ndwas agitated by the advent
of the "prolessional beauty," a name
applied to women wliese singular beau
ty tempted them to pose for the admira
tion of men. English society, even of
the fashionable sort, is so decorous, that
high-born dames were disturbed by tht*
presence of such an anomaly as a virtu
ous woman whose manner said, "I wish
to be stared at, for I enjoy it." Yet on
the continent su-h women have long
been known, and society chere freely
acknowledged their right to pose before
all who wished to admire them. A. writ
er in the Century, who met an extra
ordinary beauty in Italy, the Countess
Castiglione, says her sell-appreciation
was enormous, and her frankness in re
gard to her beauty was most amusing.
On her return, after a short visit to
England, some one aske her if she had
seen many handso ne wo nen there.
"None more heauti'ul than mvBelf," was
was the brief but pointed reply.
Such was the "craze" she excited that
a crowd gathered at the door of a ball
room to see her enter, and many of them
stood in chairs to gratify their curiesity.
But such adulation did not in the least
disturb her equanimity. S ,e might have
been embarrassed if she had not been
greeted by a crowd.
But it was at her evening receptions
that her self-appreciation and love of
admiration were most frankly and bril
liantly expressed. She reclined on a
fo'h,
withdrawn some distance from the
wall, in a graceful pose and dressed
bo
as to display her neck and armo to the
greatest. Rd vantage. Near her was a
lamp so placed as to throw the proper
lights and shadows on her form and
featuies.
Her guests, men of course, were seat
ed in a row at a littlo distance, whence
they might gaze in respectful admira
tion Now and then she would signal to
one of them, by a languid movement, of
lier hand, that iie might approach her.
The slavish admirer would advance with
a deferential bow, kiss her hand and tell
her she was beautiful. Then he would
pass around the sofa, that he might ?ee
her from every point ol view, and thus
return to his seat.
"The dictionary," says the writer in
the Century, "defines vanity as 'an in
flatijnof mind npon slight grounds
therefore, she was not vain, for hbr
grounds were strong."- Yet such enor
mous self-appreciation, anl loveof ad
miration must have been disgusting to a
refined observer, whose type of woman
hood required the presence of modesty,
simplicity and sweetness.

SOCIETY TALK.
TIlo Art of Entertaining Acceptably,
and What it Requires..
To entertain others acceptably and
sucessfully, demands attention to vari
ous things. Among them may be enu
merated voice,manners,tact accomplish
ments, imagination, individuality, po
liteness, education, wit, brevity, repar
tee, ethics of dress, and tho art of con
versition. Edward Evereft Hale says:
"There is no particular method about
talking, or talking well. It is oneZof the
thin sin life which 'does itself,' and if
one fails in talking it is because they
!i ve not yet applied the simple .master
rules of life. 'Tell the tru'h,' 'confess
ignorance,' and 'talk to the person who
is bilking to you.'" These rules of that
popular author may be thus briefly en
larged upon. Wo iould never pretend
interest in that for which wo have no
love.orof which we have no knowledge.
To illustrate: persons who have no ap
preciation of um-ie or art only belittle
themselves, and buflle and -.weary their
companions, who may hi musicians
or artists, by their ignorant pretense.
We cannot assume to know those
things of which we are really ignorant
'or tho disguise is always too thin a mask
to conceal our mental capabilities. The
difl't) enco between those who pretend
and those who are true, in society, is the
difference between those people whom
Thackeray calls snobs, and those who
are in reality ladies and gentlemen. In
polite society, outside of the family cir
cle, we sho dd always avoid references
to our own affairs, such as domestic ex
periences aud sick-room recitals, unless
particularly questioned by intimate
Iriends, on account of peculiar interosts
in our person .1 welfare. An author savs,
"no good talker is obtrusive, thrusting
forward his observations on men and
things. He is rather receptive, trying
to get at other peoples' observations.
There are unsounded depths in a -nan's
-ture, of which ho him-elf knows noth
ing till they are revealed him by the
plash and rippte of his own conversa
tion with other men." Applying this
principle to the art of entertaining, leads
us to the following conclusions:
When conversing with those who
have more knowledge than our
selves upon the subject tinder discus
sion, we should never presume to know
thus the law of polite manners would
dictate that we should never allow our
eyes to wander over the dress of our
companion, as though intent upon the
fashion thereof, nor aimlessly to cast
our gimlets listlessly around fhe room,
as though bored nor in a large gather
ing, listen to the conversation around
us, instead of paying undivided and re
spectful attention to our particular com
panion or partner. Not even the fam
ous Coleridgj himself could converse
with brilliancy or effect tne respect of
responsive and intelligent glances of rec
ognition, admiration, or iu'erest. A
forceful and magnetic manner lies in the
happy mean between an air of indiffer
ence ond bein* to boldly lorth-putting.
Another rule of good conversation may
be tnus stated "Never undervalue
your interlocutor." This does not in
terfere with the equally important rule
of adapting our conversation to the sup
posed knowledge and capability of the
person v.e are addressing. Perfect tact
lias the rare intuition of determining
quickly and sensitively what
subjects would naturally interest per
sons of certain pursuits, taste, reputa
tion, or social standing. If the person
introduced to us has already made a re
putation that places them above tbe
general level we should wait their choice
of subjects, thereby giving them the op
portunity of showing courtesy by polite
ly acknowledging our literary qualifica
tions by the drift of their conversation
with us. Should it devolve upon us,
however, to select the subject, the most
courteous tact would dictate that we al
lude to such incidents or make such
modest inquiries should delicately, and
without fuisome flaitery, refer to their
acknowledged attainments, unusual suc
cess, or peculiar accomplishments. If
.ve are ignorant of the particular branch
es in which they are proficient, we
should compliment them hv attentive
listening and refined and cultured ques
tioning, denoting our taste for informa
tion. If our tastes run in the same di
rection, we si ouhi modestly express our
ideas, if clear-cut and well founded upon
experience or close observation, or in
to ligent study.
The art of entertaining acceptably re
qiiiries ease of manner and agreeable
inflections of voice. "Manner is every
thing with some people, and something
with everybody," said LUsliop Middle
ton and ease "of manner can only be
come habitual by acquiring gracefulness
and naturalness of pose, and then re
niemhering that others are probably to
tally indifferent to where we are stand
ing, or what we are doing, being ab
sorbed in their own individual interests.
Lady Waldegravo was said to possess in
peifection. "Part do tenir salon." She
was never afraid to bov liiSf, to call
tirst, to speak first. She knew the value
of courtesy. In England, it is said
people are never introduced at a din
ner every one speaks to his next neigh
bor, or the person opposite, without in
troduction and with delijhttul courtesy,
but in America the restraint is sucti that
two ladies will meet, gaze at each Other
as if they belonged to hostile tribes of
Indians, desiring only each other's
scalp, because, forsooth, they have not
been introduced. The best rule Beeuis
to be that the house wherein ladies
meet as invited guests should le a suf
:icient introduction to exchange the
commonolaces of courtesy, even though
they should never meet again. Were
the" customs of introduction mora liber
al in America, periiaps her society
•voukl display more evidences of ease of
manners.
In regard to the voice, I will quote
from the "American Code of Manners:"
American women talk and laugh too
loud. They»are seldom taught to speak
with a clear, antinisal voice. There is
not enough attention given to elocution
is applied to ordinary conversation, and
reading aloud, that beautiful art so much
neglected. The English are far ahead
of u? in this acompiishiiieiit,^ of a pleas
ing speaking voice and a refined inton
ation. An E glish parlor maid will say
"Might I oiler you a chair?" in a voice
which many New York ladies might
envy. Whether it is our climate and
the many soveie colds whieh our ances
oirs must have taken on Plymouth
Rock, and whiJi effectually ruined the
larvnx cf their descendants, it is certain
that Ltie bronchial membrane and the
•arvnx do not respond as well in this
country as in England. "A
low, sweet voioe ia an excellent
thing in woman," and ft dees much to
refine a coarse appearance. But Amer
ican women are almost always beautiful.
It is only when the peaeock begins to
sing or talk that we discover that Beauty
does not always Btrike in. Let every
American woman study her voice and
elocution. It is the next beat thing to
avoiding flirtation and fast manners, to
entertain witn ease as hostess or guest.
A certain amount of knowledge of tho
rules of etiquette^ is indispensable but
this knowledge, like the necessary rudi
ments of education, should bo so lamihar
as to completely lose all semblance of
art in the naturalness of native polite
ness. We all of us ve met people
whose powers of voice and manners ex
orcised an irresistible fascination. They
would always un the fashion, for they
are the types after which fashion should
he modeled.
THAT WOMAN'S COJiGRKsS.
A Characteristic Account liy a lolo
gatclO'ilis IiatejChicago Mecilnc.
Correspondence of the Cincinnati JUommer
cial Gazette.
Dear Sue:—You know|I promised to
tell you all about the Woman's
Congress,
in which Jyou (are so interested, and
which we went to Chicago on purpose to
attend—that is I did, but gSally wanted
to match some feathers and have her
hair banged. She is a dear girl but does
not seem to have the remotest idea about
the higher life, her duty to womanhood
and all that sort of thing, you know.
It rained tho first day. It was just
horrible. Chicago I weather certainly
proves that habit is stronger (than prin
ciple. for the mercury slid up and down
in tbe thermometer, the wind blew
from all points of the compass, and all
this after wo bad been promised fair
weather.
Wo went to drive after breakfast with
Jack, and ho would take us out to the
park, although wo told him we were un
der a mortal obligation to go to the meet
ing. He said he guessed there would bo
enough earnest, women to carry tho
tiiirg through without us. I don't like
to hear Jack adopt that tone. If there
is one thing women ought to do it is to
encourage each other in the cause, by
their presenco at east.
When we got back the meeting had
adjourned, but it did not make much
diilerenco, for it was a business meeting
—minutes, and reports and things. I
don't believe you would care much for
them.
In the afternoon we heard a paper
you would have 'iked so much. I forget
the title but it was ail about children
and drunkenness and poverty and
crime. It was read by an eastern lady.
They just love such things. She wore a
black dress, and looked go Bweet and
noble up there on tne stage. When she
said ths stato ought to interfere, and
women ought to make it their business
to see to it, I felt thrilled to the heart,
and was willing to do anything to help
the good *ork. Then there was a dis
cussion of tno paper that I did not hear,
because I was Irving remember what
1 had done with Sally's sample of velvet.
That night there was a grand banquet
nt the Palmer House. I did want to
hear Miss Barton speak on "The work
of the lied Cross," but it was imp ossible.
We had made up our minds to go to tho
banquet, and knew that we should be all
tired out and fit for nothing if we tried
for both.
It was a lovely party, and I have sent
vou the Society Journal, in which there
is a full account.
I was glad we had taken evening
dresses with us. It was snch a satisfac
tion to show the world that a woman can
take a serious, earnest, view of life and
still pay some attention to her appear
ance.
The next day it rained so hard that it
really seemed foolish to go out. We had
accepted an invitation to lunch, so we
spent the morning getting ready.
We really ought to have declined, but it
seemed a little rude to do that, especial
ly as she said we should go down togeth
er to the afternoon meeting. Luncheon
was delayed by calls, and there was a
baby—a dear little thing—but she just
would not go to sleep, and we could not
leave her crying. I felt really guilty
when we reached tho hall and found the
session nearly over. It was not very en
joyable, one can not be interested in the
discussion of a paper one has not heard.
It is trying, too, to feel that you are not
living up to the lev"l of your friends' ex
pectations. Some of the ladies seemed to
think wo might have been early if we
had cared to. and made themselves real
ly disagreeable, even after I bad ex
plained how it was. I think really tho
2reat problem is now women shall pro
portion their time justly between their
conventional and their higher social du
ties. Next vear I'll present a paper on
that subject if you will help me.
I do tnink jack is lovely. We met
him in a barber shop where Sally went
to have her hair banged. He said she
looked like the wreck of an ill sf»ent life
but if she would wear bor hat very far
down over her nose he would take us
some place for supper and see that we
were in time for evening services. I
think men have a better idea of time
than in omen, don't you? 1 was real
glad he went, for one of the ladies talk
ed so seriously and earnestly about sow
ing wild oats. There were many gentle
men present and all looked impressed
wnen she referred to Da-win, or Plus
ley or Spencer, for you know it takes a
stron-j mind to read those books.
On Friday morning was the election
of officers. More than balf the ladies
foruot their membership tickets, 'and a
good deal of time was taken up making
out new ones. It was after eleven be
fore the ballots were distributed. A list
of vice presidents and othor office** is
made out by a nominating committee,
but each member can scratch any name,
aud substitute another. There were two
or three I would like to have changed,
but did not have a pencil. As Sally was
in a hurry to go for her feathers I just
voted tbe ticket as it was and left.
There were some pacers to be read
that afternoon, and a charming tea at the
rooms of the fortnightly, that I was
awiully sorry to miss, but we decided
hastily to come borne with the Kinseys
—you know father does not like to have
us travel alone.
I feel more and moro bow important
it is for a woman to'cultivate lier mind,
and have come home with a fixed and
unwavering purpose to elevate my sex,
and to cling to thu path of duty, no. mat
ter how hard it m«y be to climb*
