"Wlioro Thoy Como From, "Whom Thoy
Sold, and "What Thoy Cont.
From tho N. Y. Sun.
Nearly everything Is sold at second hand In
Now York. It Is easy to understand why thero
Is a market for finery, for pianos, for jewelry,
and for clothing, for which prices are high,
and vary a great deal, but shoes are sold so
cheaply when new that trade in 6hocs at sec
ond hand should ho small. Yet it Is a fact that
there Ib a very large trade In second-hand
boots and shoes, mostly shoes, because boots
aro worn by few at present. Tho second-hand
shoo stores aro in basements in tho poorest
quarters of tho city. They aro generally in
tho neighborhood of second-hand clothing
stores, but are distinct from them. Some
times, however, bargains in second-hand shoes
are to bo found in the second-hand clothing
stores, but thoy are odd pairs, and an assort
ment is seldom supplied. On tho cast side and
in tho First Ward aro many second-hand shoo
stores, and in tho bend nt Sixth avenue and
Carmluo street Is quite a colony. Many of
them arc kept by Hebrews, and almost Invaria
bly tho proprietor is a cobbler, who occupies
his time mending shoes, cither for his own cus
tomers or some other shop. All sorts and sizes
of shoes, representing tho fashions of the past
ten years or longer, may be found for all ages
and both sexes. They are kept cleanly blacked.
Many of these shoes arc from ash barrels and
garbage boxes, having been discarded as past,
the worth of mending. About tho first of May
there is a harvest of old shoes, thrown out by
tidy housekeepers and picked up by the rag
pickers, who scud them to the second-hand
shops. Many men buy cheap shoes purposely,
because they do not like to wear 6hoes n long
time. They discard them without half soling.
As long as shoes are repairable on the uppers
they aro of service to the second-hand men, who
patlontly patch nnd mend them and make thorn
Somo of the second-hand shoe shops are pa
tronized by Hebrews, others by Italians, and
some by colored people. Many servants get
shots from their employers and have them
mended, thereby getting better articles than
they could afford to buy new.
The prices of these second-hand shoes are low.
It is almost a rule that the prlco shall be only
a trifle more than the C06t of mending. Tweuty
flvc cents a pair is not an unusual price. A
dollar a pair is a large price. The cost of shoes
Is one Of the heaviest burdens to poor families.
Old clothes may bo handed down from one
generation to another, or made over, but tuo
ehoes require cash outlay all the time, and the
amount of shoe leather thai can be stamped out,
by healthy youugsters is appalling.
There is a steady trade in second-hand shoes
among peddlers. They eagerly bargain for old
6hoea a6 they travel thiough the country.
Many of the best shoes in tho second-hand shops
are bought by colored people, who are inclined
to be particular about their footwear. In the
best second-hand stores may he found 6oIled
fancy shoes for women, relics of the 6tage, or
the cast-off finery of the rich. Such 6hocs often
reappear in east 6ide ball-rooms. Most of the
customers of the second-hand shoo shops are
thrifty persons who have fair incomes, but arc
saving money for some purpose, and do not dis
dain to economize by buying second-hand
GIRIiS AND THE STAGE.
to Those Who Would Bo
From the Ladles' Home Journal.
I have had a great many letters from among
my girls asking mo ray opinion of their going on
the stage. It becomes one of the most dlfllcult
to answer. There are good, honest, noble, God
fearing people on the stage; tho theatre may be
to tho mass of people a great school for morals;
but to the one girl stauding in the ranks waiting
to work her way forward It Is a working ground
where temptation is on every side. If she is
strong enough to resist this, then let her go
ahead. If she be one of the weaker sisters, then
let her think many times before she puts herself
In a position that will certainly entail a great
ileal of watchfulness and hard work. Tho -life
of the actress Is as full of hard work as Is that
of the girl who stands behind tho counter or tho
one who Is mistress of the telegraph key. Do
not Imagine that thccold glittering on tho gown
of tho beautiful adventuress is a symbol of tho
golden llfcsho leads, and do notbellevo that tho
llfo of tho simpering Ingenue who wonders with
a smile "how anybody over does any work" Is
not just as full of study aud absolute physical
work as is that of most other women. She works
till late at night, consequently she must sleep a
little In tho morning. She gets up then and goes
to a long and tiresome rehearsal, then only'has
time to get a bite and half au hour's sleep or
reading before she starts again for tho theatre.
But you think there aro others who do not work
in this way. Yes, yes I Hut they aro the ones
that you do not want to Imitate. Mrs. ICendal
has said that for tho woman who has6omo talent
and who Is willing to work and wait there Is
suceoss on the stage, and It pays better than al
most any other profession, but during the waitr

that scandal docs not touch with Its burning
tonguo tho woman who Is working for success.
So Ihlnk it out well for yourself; concludo
whether you not only have a heart to resolve, a
head to contrive, aim a Jianu to execute, uut
whether you really have tho talent that must be
long to tho actress. Tho world Is all a stage
and tho men and women merely players, but
you may be cast for tho happy wlf o and mother.
So don't mako tho mistake, If you aro a round
peg, of getting into a square hole.
