Special Correspondence of Sunday Herald.
London, July 2.
They say of tbe Princess Victoria of Teck,
"good-looking for a princess !" and after you
have bad a glimpse of the Royal Family of
Great Britain you begin to understand what
Tradition keeps informing us how good-looking
prluccsses are, but nobody can ever accuse
the Guelph family of shining in the way of pos
sessing a professional beauty in its rauks. The
Princess of Wales has a charmingly sweet face,
but take away from her that glorificatiou which
is about royalty aud you would never give her a
secoud look; she wears tbe wiggiestof wigs, and
horror upon horrors, is dowdy-looking. Loyal
subjects refer to her as the best dressed woman
in the world. This is absolute nonsense. If I
were King of England 1 should make an effort
to get in a little outside blood aud have the
chance then of showing some good-looking
women in tbo family. Personally not given to
a frantic waving of the Star-Spangled Banner,
I never feel so proud of tbe American women
as when I seo their English sisters. Tbo pas$6
beauty Is to tbe fore a something easily under
stood when tho court age Is considered. With
out exception she uses paint in tho most lavish
manner, puts a daub under each eye, ono on
her chin and one on each ear, and then over
lays this with a thick coating of powder, and
believes she has beautified herself. Her Inclina
tion Is to a rather frowzy bead, and though we
rave- over London tailor-made clothes, there ia
no doubt about it that English tailors them
selves fit women better after they have bad a
short stay In Now York.
HEALTH OF ENGLISH WOMEN.
The Englishwoman's health has been talked
Of and written of uutll tbe subject, if not tho
wotnau, has been worn threadbare. Sbo does
start In with an iron constitution, but tbo way
sbo rackets ib enough to break up several con
stitutions, if it weren't for the amouut sbo eats
,and drinks; as she grows older sbo gets abnor
mally largo bolow the belt and suggests nothing
so much as a respectable housekeeper. Beauti
ful women ? Yes, there are plenty of them, but
they are not seen in tbe extremely fashionable
et$ they belong to that great middle class
Which is tbo mainstay of English respectability.
SOCIAL LIFE HELOW STAII'.S.
Tho "huppah clikles" have nothing to do but
to amuse themselves, and wo all know who flnd6
mischief for idle bunds to do. Affairs of tho
heart (it always seems so ridiculous to call them
that) are spokon of in tho frankest manner, and
a hostoss knows exactly what man to ask to her
lioufce when she has invited some special

THE cnAl'.MINO SIDE OF LONDON
is the world where the makers of books and pic- I
turcs and the singer of songs dwell. It is never
called Bohemia, because when once a land has j
that name given to it its charm is lo3t; but there '
are hundreds of delightful houses where you can
meet, the man who wrote the poem that stirred '
your soul, where you can see tbe poet-painter
who thought out tho great picture, or the man ,
who has made music that delights you when all
the rest of tho world seems full of sadness.
Hero you meet Mrs. Leo Hunter, eagerly search
ing for her lions and amazed that they are not
anxious to roar even mildly In her drawing-room.
Hero was known poor Amy Levy tbe wonder
ful young girl who after doing work that was )
great died just as it was beginning to be recog- ,
nlzed. Here you search for Rudyard Kipling
you want to know all about that awesome time
when "they hung Danny Deover in the morn
ing," and if you are like me you will come across
him and be so choked up with delight and ad
miration that you won't be able to say one word ,
except u rather stiff "Thank you," when he ox- '
presses his pleasure at meeting you. And you '
will weep bitter tears of Indignation afterward
at your lost opportunity. You will see the t
beautiful wife of Sir John Mlllals, and you will
get a man who lives near Manchester to tell you
all about that day when they opened the
coflbi of Dante Gabriel Rossetti's beautiful wife
and took out tho bundle of sonuets from the
golden hair that had formed a network over
ENGLISH ItEAI.IsM IN AltT.
You will go to a studio whose owner is deeply
Interested in artistic iron work, aud as you aro
drinking your tea the doors of tho back will bo
opened wide, and there, working away with
hammer and anvil, with the glowing lire of tho
furnace upon them, you will see the blacksmiths;
tho effect is wonderfully artistic, but you put
your hand up to your head and wonder If you
aro not In a land quite outside ot the ordinary
world. You ate. You are In the land of thor
ough artistic knowledge and absolute learning.
Englishmen know everything better than do
Ainei ican men. Wherever they have sought out
anything they have gone to tho very root of it
and aro not satisfied with merely a smattering.
No man talks to you about anything ho doesn't
understand, and this Is where tbo greatest na
tion in tbo world (so it esteems itself) might ad
vantageously take example.

THE STOIIY OF A LONDON WOMAN.
The delightful bigness of London is always
new. You cau live bere forever, go to tho libra- (
rles and tbe picture galleries, disappear some
day, and nobody will miss you, and there is a
curious fascination about that. You can live In '
any way you want, and tbe world is too big to
concern Itself about you unless you arc espe- '
ciall- before it in a public capacity. You don't
think that's so? Well, hero's a little story, a
true one. Years ago a beautiful woman, the
wife of a very rich man, was brutally treated by
him; llfo was made miserable, and nothing
seemed of worth In the whole wide world. Ono 1
day she bolted. With tho intimate friend, of
course, but in this case ho turned out to be more
worthy of tho love that was given him than ho I
usually is. Out of the Row, away from the the
atres, from every place whero she had been seen, '
the little lady disappeared; tho intimate friend
was still visible at bis clubs, and ho was credited
at having soon grown weary of her. Did ho? '
Why, she uever left London for an hour. From
the wretched homo in which sbo lived and it
was wretched for all its beauty she went to a
little houso in anotberpartof this great city, and
there she has lived, happy in tbo love of tbo man
who loves her. A dainty little brougham takes
her out to drive, and she never makes an eJTort
to see or speak to any of her old friends. To
make a blessed retreat for this one man and to
be good and kind to tho poor is her life, and who
shall say whether she is right or wrong? I didn't
tell this to comment upon what sbo bad done,
but only as an evidence of how, in tho big world,
one may bo swallowed up and forgotten. This
would be possible in no other place. And some
times it is a great blessing that there Is a well
big enough to swallow up sorrows and sins,
j faults and miseries, so that no judgment 6hall
! come upon them until that ono when all men
I bhall stand before Him who is tbo only Judge.
SIIOl'l'ING IN LONDON IS A JOY.
1 have heard people object to tho servility of
tbe London shopkeeper. For my own part, I
delight in it. After tho door-mat principlo
which obtains in New York I like to feel that I
am doing great honor to tho place whoro I buy
a shilling handkerchief, and I like to bo bowed
l la and bowed out as If I were Empress of India,
And a littlo money does go such a great way !
And if you want to have your soul filled with
t delight go to a bootmaker's. You cau get tho
most exquisite French slippers, with tho i-ouis
t Quinze heels, at a price that will mako you open
1 your eyes, aud when tho shopkeeper tries them
' on he will say in an utterly blissful tone, "Mad
ame lo an American; isu'tsho?" Then you feol
as If you would like to buy out all tbo shop.
He knew you, not by tho strawberry mark on
1 your left arm, but by tho size of your foot, and
you feel so light after this that you bellovo you
could walk on clouds.
Some very clever body said that tho thanks-
' giving continually rendered by people hero
whom one had tipped was not sincere. Now, if
you give a ha'penny to a boy do you caro whether

it is sincere or not, provided he says it ? I don't.
But I wish we could import about ten millions
of "Thank you's" into tho United States, and I
am sure that everybody would be willing to pay
duty on them.
TOT "DAB" LIKES ENGLISHMEN.
What do I liko best in England? The men.
I liko them because they aro real, and by real
I mean lacking in pretense.
I like them because tboy aro big and healthy
looking. I like them becauso they wear their clothes as
if they grew on them, and not as if they were
assumed by the assistance of a shoe-born.
I liko them becauso tboy realize their own
rights, and Insist upon haviug them.
I like thom because, while they arc polite,
they do not mako you think it is a sugar icing
like that on pound-cake.
I liko them becauso tboy liko children, dogs,
I I like them becauso they can row a boat, ride
a horse, and drivo a four-in-hand well, or else
1 not at all.
I like them becauso thoy are big and strong
looking I prefer a bruto to an effeminate man.
I like them becauso they liko American
women that one reason is good enough to ex
cuse tho oxtremo liking for them that exists in
1 the heart of Bah.

THE HEARTY LAUGH.
Tho Ulblo Contains No Command That Man
From the Gentleman's Magazine.
The Bible contains no cheerful exhortation to
laughter. For tbo most part, indeed, it is re
ferred to in the metaphorical sense of "scorn
ing," as when it is written of Leviathan that
"be laugbeth at tbe shaking of a spear." But
there are passages also whero the ordinary
meaning is evidently intended, and in almost
every one of these it is eyed askance. Solomon
is the great authority on the subject; let him
speak for himself: "1 said of laughter, it is
mad; and of mirth, what docth it ?" "Even in
laughter tho heart is sorrowful, and tho end of
that mirth Is heaviness." Again, "A fool lifteth
up his voice with laughter, but a wise man doth
scarce smile a little." Not very encouraging,
truly, to those of hilarious proclivities. It may
be legitimato enough to comparo the giggle of
a fool to "tho crackliug of thorns under a pot,"
but it seems hard that there should bo no word
of approval for tho milder merriment of tbo few
who may be supposed not to belong to fooldom.
Yes, by tho way, thcro is ono and only one: "A
time to laugh," but wo may search tho Scrip
tures from Genesis to tbo Apocalypse without
detecting any intimation as to when that timo
occurs. Probably Solomon meant tho brief pe
riod of childhood, when ignorance is bliss and
wo aro merry without knowing or caring to
know why. lie could not consistently recom
mend any such frivolity to those of'a larger
growth after having so bitterly commented on
tho practice in previous chapters.
It must have been constant study of tbo
preacher's gloomy utterances which made laugh
ter so uupopular among tho monks of tho desert
and some of tho early fathers. St. Basil, for in
stance, will have nothing to do with it. No per
son, he says, of well-ordered mind can over
bring himself to indulge in a good laugh, or, in
tho quaint patristic language, "In Tmmancs
cachlnnos prorumpero ot corporo sussultaro."
A littlo further on, thinking, perhaps, that ho
has not spokon with decision enough, bo takes
occasion to improve tho text, "Woe unto you
that laugh now !" It Is perfectly plain, ho adds,
that there Is no room whatever for laughter in
tho llfo of tho faithful, ("Nullum omnlno locum
darl fidoll, in quo ridero dobeat.") Plato, a
good mauy centuries earlier, In constructing his
ideal state, expressly warned his readers that
laughter-loving persons wcro ineligible as guar
dians. Ho even forbado that worthy men should
bo represented, on tbo stage or elsewhere, as
overcome by their scuso of tho ridiculous. Ho
does not condemn laughter In itself, howover;
this was reserved for other and less genial sys
tems of philosophy.
