(Special Corrstpoodaoce.]  Paris, Aug. 16.—The American girl in painting has been outdone abroad by her (later ta jkmg. Ubiquitous, versatile, ambitious, •tie beams upon ber fellow countrymen from tlie great operatic and concert stages ot the world. .  "1 have high hope«, great faith In American • girls in aong,",iald Mme. Jtarcheei, the famoua.vocal ttutruotreaa of Paris. "They are doiHg sploulidly. Their voioes have good quality; then they are hard «rbrkerm.* Ob, I expect gre«t things of American singera," and madame glanced affectionately at the  miss eames as jvukt. walls of ber music room, from which smile the well known faces of Mile. Nevada, Al-bani, Van Zandt, Maria Deccn (flinging with Mapleaon in England), Mile. Elliott, Mrs. Stoddard and a host of singers wbo proudly claim America as their homo.  "Look at Miss Eames," said madamo, turn ing to the picture of the beautiful impersonator of Gounod's Juliet, which occupies the post of honor on the mantel of the historic music room. "Her success is wonderful-marvelous." The kindly eyes of the eminent Italian woman glowed with the pride of the successful teacher, and seating herself on a divan in the splendid salon of bar beautiful home.on Kuo JouiTroy, she lived over again tbo glbries of her departed youth in the anticipated triumphs of her American pupils.  "Look at Miss Games," repeated madama "Her success is wonderful, marvelous. 8he stepped from this room, I may say, on to tlie stage of the Grand G|>oia of Paris, and swept everything before her. Her triumph was brilliant—great I" Mine. Murchesi's music room is off ttio salon, rich in treasures of nrt. It is lighted by a skylight, under which is a platform and music stand. A grand piano, a library of musical manuscripts, bric-a-brac and Oriental hangings complete its furnishing. The hard finished oak floor is in nature's own dress, and, with the portraits of the giffeLFomcn of song, many in the costumes of ®e roles in which they have achieved faro, Mnio. Marchesi's music room is an idear baunt of Apollo. "Miss Eumes was never behind the scenes of a theatre until she began the rehearsal of 'Romeo an:l Juliet," 1  continued inadarne. "But—ah—you would think she had trod it all her life. Such ease, such grace—it was wonderful. But then," smiled madame, "American giris can do everything—their resources are endless."  The subject of Mmo. Marchesi's rhapsodies is the reigning prima donna of Purls grand opera. Since her debut last March sh'i has charmcd thousands of her visiting countrymen, who went to tho Grand Opera house chiefly to nilmire ita adornments, little dreaming they would meet in the queen of it« stage daughter of the stars and stripes. Miss Eames is the dauahter of a Boston barrister. 8he was born in China. When 5 years old she was taken to America, where she led tho studious, unpretentious life of Now England girls until three years ngo, when sho came to Paris. Her voire mid love of music 6he inherit« from her father's family. Many members of tho latter are aliovo the average musical umnteur. Miss H lines is the first of the family, however, to adopt music as a profession. Her love for tho artistic was pro uounced in earliest rhiUlluHxl This, together with her pure, supple voice, induced her father, who was tier fli-st instructor, to let her try tho perils of the stas«. After two years' study and singing In choirs and concerts in Boston, she Uicame tlie pupil ef tbe eminent Mme. Matclicsi.  Miss Eames is mi indefatigable worker. She is devoted to her art. The year before ber debut was spent in digesting aud assimilating the valuablo lessons received from her Instructor. Miss Eames is but 21 years old. Tall, graceful, beautiful, sho is the ideal Juliet. Gounod, the composer, taught her himself the entire role of Juliet in his great opera "Romeo and Juliet"< Her success is one of the most remarkable in the long category of triumphs which have been achieved on the operatic stage of Paris. The day after her debut sho received a telegram from Mr. August Harris asking her to sing at Coveut Garden,   :  Fire Insurance ml  sibyl sanderson as k8clarmonde.  I/>ndon. The price offered was very large, but her engagement at the Grand prevented her from accopting it. That a girl so young should master not only tbe Intricacies of the music, but fluency of the French language sufficiently to win tbo bravas of critical Paris, la on achievement in which America may reloir*. There 1« no limit to which ■neb genius may not soar. Now that fame libera, French and American resident* are aolicUous In attentions, but «lie sacrifices •octal pleasures that would interfere witb her study or tho strength required for tb* exactions of her role. In a simple gown of white silk she was the cynosure of all eye* at Minister Reld's reception, and in classic draperies was much admired at Lady Lyons' (wife of the British minister) last garden party.  (Scarcely bad tbe eclat of Misa Eames' triumph settled Into sturdy admlraUin when another American songstress — MIm Sibyl Sanderson—made her debut before a Parisian audience at the Opera Comlque.  Mia Sanderson, as her picture indicates, if a beautiful woman. Her family name is not unknown to the Pacific ooast Born in Sao ramento, her childhood paaed in San Fran-/rfaoo, Her musical studies began in 1831 a(  the Paris conaervatory, but w#e interrupted by tbe death of her father, to be resumed later under tbe tuition of Mme. Dugler, niece of Gounod. The opera, "Eaelarmonde," in which Miss Sanderaoa made her debut 09 the «renin« of the 1Mb of May, was written for ber by Massenet, the well known coinpoMr. It* success wa* instantaneous, and it continue! to play to crowded housed BeaU areata premium on Mm Sanderson's night 8he dngi three time« a week. Unlike Mias Eames, the debut of MIm Sanderson waa not her first operatic appearance. In 1888, at the Hague and Amsterdam ,she rang In opera under the name of Ada Palmer. "I wanted to try my abilities under an assumed name," said the beautiful songstress, "before assuming my own."  It was not personal pride at the oonsequence of failure, but a touching devotion to tbe memory of ber father's name, that prompted ber to discard It until success was assured. It was a needless precaution, as tbe sequel proved. Her success partook of an ovation. It was telegraphed to Paris and her Identity revealed. The path was now clear to ber final debut at the Opera Comlque.  Gounod heard her sing and was delighted with her voice. Since the beloved Helber, who created the role of Manol, be said he bad never beard a voice that pleased him so well. He wanted Miss Sanderson for Manol, but she bad signed a contract for a year with the Opera Comlque.  MIm Sanderson lives witb her mother In beautiful apartments on Ruo Lincoln, off the famous boulevard Champ Elysees.  The rules euforced at tbe opera bouses of Paris are very strenuous. After tbe first night, to which the press and distinguished critics are invited, no compllmentarlee are Issuod. Not a ticket is given to the parents of tbe stars or a single attache of the com' pany. A doctor's certificate alone releases a member from appearing on the nights assigned. One of the most grievous disappoint menta that has come to Miss Sanderson since the opening of ber career was her inability (owing to tbe night) to be present and sing at tbe American minister's reception on the evening of the Fourth of July. The Sandersons number Mrs. Wbitelaw Reid among their oldest friends.  Probably no event at the Paris exposition emphasized in so significant a manner tbe growth of tbe refining arts in the United States as tho American composers' concert given at the Trocadero in July. It was a fitting time and place tor tbe debut ot Mme. <Marcheel's latest lyric star—Mile. Sylvania. lircwo melodies by F. Van dor Stucken, and a ballad by Margaret Ruthven Lang, Mile. Syl v ania's deliciously clear, vibrant voice penetrated the vast ball of tbe historic Trocadero, erected to commemorate the Universal exhibition of 1807. Her success was pronounced; Mmp. Carnot, resident Americans and the musical critics of Paris awarded her efforts witb heartiest applause. To American friends Mile. Sylvania is known as MIm Emma Walters. From the sylvan vales of . California, where much of her childhood passed, aud the last two syllables of her native state—Pennsylvania—she conceived the happy thought of adopting Sylvania as ber stage name. Parisian ears would not tolerate so prosaic a name as Walters.  Mile. Sylvania comes from a musical family. Her father, Professor B. Frank Walters, is a musician, composer and writer. He taught music in Philadelphia for twenty-five years, while bis wife sang for years in Dr. Tahnage's church at Brooklyn. Mile. Sylvania's musical training began when she was 5 years old. Bom and bred in a musical atmosphere she came to Paris In 1887 and continued ber studies under Mme. La Grange, a favorite teacher of American a s p i r-ants. Finally sho became the pupil of Marches!, who speaks in highest praise of her abilities to achieve brilliant things on the operatic stage. Mile. Sylvania is now prepared to sing opera'tn French or Italian. Like all Americans who reside in Paris for any time she prefers the French language. Engagements for next season are under consideration. Doubtless her operatic debut will be mode next winter at Brussels. Mile. Sylvania is not yet 20. To genius of song the gods have added winning girlish beauty, a vital requisite for the aspirant to public favor.  Witb eroct, willowy figure, stately poised head, brown hair, sparkling dark eyes and face that mirrors every fleeting emotion, together with great musical and dramatio gifts, a brilliant future assuredly awaits Mile. Sylvania. She lives in Paris with her father, who is ber devoted attendant  "I do not want to go back to America," said the young cantatrice, "until I have made a success in Paris. Then, oh then, I will go," aud the dreams of ambitious youth shone in her sweet face at the anticipation of meeting the approbation of her countrymen.  The temptations besetting the young, the pretty, the ambitious girl who comee unprotected to Paris to pursue any career are almost overwhelming. The gifted, unprotected, in nine cases out of ten secures a dramatic,artistic or operatic engageraentspeedler than the sister aspirant who has the companionship of father, mother or brother. Managers' agents, as a rule, steer clear of young ?irls under masculine chaperonage. The prioe at which many a prima donna debut has been bought is too often the tragedy of sin aud degradation. This awful truth Is well known in professional circles and that portion of the public familiar witb the craft It is kept sub rosa. Nevertheless, It Is a truth bound to come out sooner or later. The social customs of France- are vastly different from those of . America. The American girl Is loth to believe this until the truth is thrust upon her by personal experience. Lida Roue McCabb.  VOULUE. BVLYAKIA.  Red Cloud*« Fourth of July Speech*  Among the features of the "Fourth" Celebration at Chadron was the speech of the celebrated Indian chief, Red Cloud. He was introduced to the audience by L. J. F. Iaeger.  "Ladies and gentlemen: I will say something to you this evening, and I want you all to listen to me, please. I was asked to come and see you and celebrate the great Fourth of July, and to Bhow you bow the Indians dance, but I have something to tell you besides that. I have told you many times before that all you people were my friends, and I hope that all our children will love each other like brothers and children in tho future, as if we were all born of ono woman.  "The Great Father sent commissioners here to try to bulldoze mo like a child, and try to take ray land away from me. They told me that if I did not give the land up it would be just like a big fish in a pond with little fish, tho big ones would eat the little ones all up. They said that the white people would take all the good lands from me, and that I would have nothing left but bad lands, when I would starve to death. They said that if I bad a big stone wall around me the white people would get over it, and that if I did not sign the paper there would be no more Indians—they would be wiped out' But I am no child.  "Tbey came to me like a child, and So I did not sign tho paper. The Great Father has bothered mo so much about my land that 1 am getting tired of it I have told him that I will never givo him any more of my laud, and I want you all to understand me. Tbo Great Father has made many treaties with me and nix iieople, but never kept his word when the ltlme came to pay tbe money to make his Woixl good. I am chief of the whole Sioux nation, and I have promised my people that I wpuld never sign any more of my land a#ay, and I am going to keep my word. In all treaties with the Great Father I was always ..cheated, and so were my people, I do not -like to make a fuss over this, for I want to" be friends to you alt This land where Chadron Is now is mine, and was stolen from me In the treaty of 1808. I want you all to be my friends. 1 would say more, but I do not feel well. Qood-by. n   OUR NEW YORE LETTER.  WHAT A GREENHORN 8CES IN THE BIG METROPOLS.  He Doesn't Save Anything to Say About  Opium Joluts, or the Astors, or the  Jeromes, or Sea Dsthlif, bat Be Looks  Up Some Mighty Interesting Thing*.  (Special Correspondence. |  New York, Aug. 27.—I will not chose as a text, "What a greenhorn sees in New York, r  though that is practically what 1 am going to write about  Tou have read what the polished scribblers have had to say about the beauties of metropolitan existence, and they tell you all about tbe opium Joints, tbo sea bathing and reminiscences of Artora and Jeromes am all the points of tbe town; I dont know any of these people, and never expect to, and what is more I don't believe the others do' either, and 1 have a sneaking Idea that nine out of ten of New York letters are made up out of the daily papers, witb a generous sprinkling of personal pronouns to keep up interest  Neither do I know anything about China-men or opium joints, so I will leave that to the people wbo do; I will, just for tbe sake of airing a personal opinion, declare that a Chinaman dap't know how to wash a shirt, and that I believe has been heretofore the only valid permit upon which he based existence.  Sea bathing is probably all right for those who like it, but to a stranger who has no suit and no shape to show, a cold shower bath, with a drink of plain soda to remind bim of the pleasures of gulping down beastly salt water, answers every purpose.  If you want to enjoy Central pari: you can do it equally well in Kansas City by buying last week's Harper's Weekly, for tbe swan boate look much better in tho paper than they do on the water; and besides it is cooler to swing in your hammock and read than to give up money to paddle around the pond and half drown In a sea of your own perspiration.  Nev> York's chief charm to the stranger consists, at least to me, in coming face to face with the things he used to read about in his green covered, embossed primer when he went to school It is the advantage of notoriety, and it is a great advantage to all concerned, for the people who run the sights In the metropolis do it on very scientific principles.  Now Yorkers 1 imagine to be intensely practical people. Your landlady takes you to a dingy rear room on tbe fourth fioor, and tells you that the rent with board for two is $25 a week. She tells you that the room is vastly superior to the front room on tbe bath room floor, and she tells you why. In the first place you do not get the noise < r dust of the street, and then—think of it—you get the sun in winter, and unless you harden your heart you are very likely to agree witb her.  But my idea in this letter is to contrast metropolitan with provincial life, the life of the large cities of NowYork state, for instance. In the first place, there is no room in New York, and the bouses have to go up into the air, perforce. There are no door yards to speak of, much less lawns, such as one sees in Buffalo, for example, and the rear yard, usually about twenty feet square, is the lurking place in summer of such members of the family as would keep cool.  As I write, my fair neighbor, who lives on the street above, sits under her arbor in wrapper and slippers and nods over a novel. She looks as cool as a cucumber, and no doubt she is. She has several yards of green grass to cool tbe breezes for her, and the mockbig bird over her head that yells "Marguerite" at her from morning until night supplies the place of the birds which the hawkish little sparrow drove away.  Moreover, there is a tree in the yard of some unknown species; it is a sad little tree and looks as though it were tired of playing clothes post for four families.  Of course my neighbor could goto tbe park and sit on a bench witb a fagged out mother and her two babios, but sho is thinking about next week, when she will sail around at Bar Harbor in her now togs, the envy of both sexes.  Bar Harbor seems to be all the go this year, and yet none thinks of paying tbe pros-ideut or the secretary of state a nickel for making the locality known to the world.  Strangely enough New Yorkers, who are very solid on arithmetic, know next to nothing of geogrupby. The outlying districts as far west a« Chicago are known as "Up Country," aud one man was surprised when I told him Lake George was nearer Albauy than Buffalo. He also had an idea that the locality of tho recent floods, Johnstown, N. Y., was dangerously near Niagara Falls.  The country merchant brings his hopeful along to read the signs, aud the boy seems to find it a very interesting study. One sign I saw the other day that interested ma On a street facing East river a board tacked up bore tbe inscription: "Sand worms for sale here." Having always been Interested in angling, though 1 never had more than tho usual fisherman's luck, I entered and asked about the price of worms. A gill cupful cost a nickel. The worms are kept in wet Baud; come to think of it, it wouldn't be just the caper to go digging worms around Madison square, though if I hadn't the nickel I should stand in with the corporation, and follow the infernal trench diggers who are forever tearing up the streets to lay water and gas pipes and electric wire conduits.  Another thing that struck me as queer was the method of cleaning the streets. The horse brooms can work at night to advantage, but in business hours the scavenger plies under tbe horse's heels with a canvas grip sack aud a short bandied brush. He dodges in and out on Broadway, and seems to lead a charmed existence.  Many of the pleasures of provincial life seem to me to bo lacking in New York. Tbe miles of asphalt streets of which many an interior city boasts, and which afford safe pleasure to the male and female bicycle riders, are lucking. To be suro one cau ride in Central park or on tbe boulevards about Washington heights, but from what I have seen I judge that there is little pleasure in It Last Sunday I saw two wheels at the park. One was being ridden down the mall at a breakneck pace by a young man. Tbo other was in the hands of a policeman, while lis owner was making an equally lively trip in the bottom of a park department ambulauce.  Speaking of policemen reminds me of a sight I saw the other night on Park row. 1 had noticed a policeman in the bar room of an all night hotel. He had held up tbe bar rail for a long time, and seemed to be about as drank as possible. As be went out he caught sight of two or three young men standing near the curb, engaged in a discussion. Tbe refusal of bis order to move on seemed to arouso him from comparative lethargy todrunken fury. The way be clubbed them was awful. One—and the smallest of tbe three—covered with blood, screamed for mercy so loudly that a crowd was collected, and the policeman, seeming to realize what he had done, fled down the street  This Is the general reputation of the force among the people who are taxed to pay the ilubbers$l,aju a year apiece. Uven inspectors,, who are regarded as heroes by the provincial superintendent, are opeuly charged with blackmail and witb standing in with the worst.thieves of the town, even of making theb- most lauded captures by use of stool pigeons.  Tbe poor Buffalo or Rochester policeman, whose head goes off for sleeping on his beat or for being caught coming out tbe back door of a friendly brewery, would be horrified to find the "finest" standing up to the bars, or asleep in a rear room with bat aud ihoe* off, confident that the barkeeper will awaken him in time to meet the roundsman.  On the other hand, there are policemen at Coney Island that are gentlemen personified. I sat oo a fence at West Brighton the other night admiring the fireworks. A polioeman with red hair and kindly blue eyes approached. "Wont you please get off that feucqt" he. "I am suouoeeH to keep  «,/ it «/it i  "tí&rt  U'~'< *  rv  people off ft, but 1 donVWtalìóiàta*^ ' one more than Is nipwsfy ta ordM- ifimfru^H tbe rules." . . -)-; 't, fi.st,^^^  We took an observation ot Owpf nlcs through a glrn darkly, ani for time we both sat on thè ftoà» «Itft * tbe ebb Of tbe tide and »wail to tM**a«r - >'■ 1  wares.

Soch do not need advice.

Don't come expeoting to have a brass bond reception at the train, for New York is a very cold town, and if you ha vent the price of a square meal the man. you a-pect to get it from is sure to be out of town. If you must come, have at least tbe prios at a return ticket and two weeks' board, and then, if the gods are with you, you will gat there; but if tbey are not, why, you can go home again and take time to decide what is the trouble witb you.

The one Was a lib« ting abode for the gods, the other IS on-worthy tbe nation, and doubly unworthy fibs noble rulers of that classic country.  The city of Athens, as every one knows, stands some six miles from Pineus, and ill spite of the beautiful gardens and truss, gleams painfully white in the sun; but there ' is a charm and interest in this lovely plao* . that I have found nowhere else in my travels.

The theme tempts a long description, but I set out to tell a little something about the king and queen'who have done so much to restore that ancient kingdom to pn» perity.  When King George was called to tbe throne the country was well nigh bankrupt, bsr industries had decayed and agriculture even-was partially abandoned, but with the. best interests of the country st heart he has labored. He is really an able man, though rather a silent one, and be said little but immediately set about reforms, and it waa not long before his power was felt in tbe improved condition of industry and eommeros, and these backed by a feeling of security.
