I do not know exactly how lo account 'or it. It e, ins to me a condition of !hings which exists only in Xew York. I'he London bachelor may bo a tremen. ioua swell if he is rich, but in nine ascs out of ten he Is satisfied with inlet chambers in Jormy u street or in i locality that is tuallarily near the :lubs. while tho larger uirtion of his income is expended for guns, dogs, horses und a house or shooting box lomewhore in the country. In Paris the apartments of bachelors are nearly always pretty and tasteful, but seldom tipenslve. Tho Frenchmen have a great fancy for t 'reton hangings und white paint well gilded. The pictures in their rooms are invariably good, but the decorations do no' disply anything like the magnificence ,at prevails in the homes of New York's unmarried men. I think that this is largely bc IMUUM there are very few confirmed bachelors in Paris. F.vory roan in Irenes looks upon marriage as his fate. It is largely a business trans action, and he simply waits until he can make a good bargain. Ponding that time ho lives comfortably, but does not Invest fortunes in his sur roundings. I had breakfast once in Paris with a man whose reputation as a vtveur is more than national. His name has been associated with those of a umber ol famous women, but aaida from this phase of his life he is a promoter of cable companies, a mun Of title, a member of the jockey club, and a Parisian to his llnger-tips. He waa just the sort of a man. in fact, that out would expect to find housed In mag nificent fashion. I found that lie lived in uu apartment on the first floor of u big house on the Boulevard Haussmaii. His stable w as in Hie roar of the honse. There was a dm wing-room, a dining room, two or throo bed-rooms, and then a long passageway, at the end ol which were the servants' quarters and the kitchen. 1 he dining-room w as the most pretentious room in the apart ment. We took breakfast there at a table that would accommodate about ten guests. The decorations wore in blue and gold. The table was oval, ti match the room; the chairs WON oak and the hanging! neither no, able nor particularly valuable. It was precisely like the Interior Ol any one of five thou sand flats in New Y'ork City. Yesterday, on the other hand, 1 met a mnn on Broadway us I was walking up toward homo to dinmlt whom I knew slightly, und who insisted upon my going into his apartment for a glass r.f sherry as an appetiser. He Is tha manager or junior partner, or some thing of that sort, in an Importtnf, house on Worth street.
