Correspondence of The Sunday Heuatd.
New Youk, Maj' 1. There was a time when
.anything in the shape of a carriage was gladly
welcomed hy a woman when to drive in a
buggy, to sit high up on a dog cart, to be low
1u a phaetou, to be shut lip tight in a brougham,
or to feel like a small pea in a large pod in an
enormous laudau gratified every desire. But,
bless you, that won't do nowadays.
fadamc now sits at home and pouts on a
clear, sunshiny day, and will not go out in her
victoria because it is swung too low and hasn't
the necessary thirty-two springs, which makes
driving so oafy that it seems like being rocked
in a cradle. She declines to drive out on a
rainy day because her brougham is too high,
the windows too large, and the color a dull
green instead of tho favorite bright blue. She
prefers to walk rather than go in au old-fashioned-CQuipagc.
Tho fashionable victoria
Is high, broad, with a number of springs, and
should luivo a pair of horses that contrast in
color, a grey aud a bay being given tho pref
erence. No chains nniBt jingle, but tho har
ness must glitter from tho amount of elbow
grease given it, and tho horses must look as if
thoy had satin skins. Tho gloves of the coach
man and footman must bo carefully pipe
clayed, but they must so thoroughly under
stand how to mix vinegar with tho white that
it does not rub off on tho carriage rugs, or on
the sleeves of my lady's coat if she should need
to bo helped out.
THIS 8MAUT OAltltlAOE 01' TO-DAY.
Tho smart brougham is of rather light blue,
swung low, shaped like a sedun chair, and
should h.ivo four panes of glass in its tiny
windows. 1 wonder if you know what the
bulging out ut the back means ? It is a re
vival of an ancient custom. Tho long, narrow
placo that comes ju6t at tho back of tho seat,
and which allows from tho outside, was, in
years gono by, used to hold tho pistols, the
swords, or whatever weapons it was thought
would bo necessary on tho road. Now, you
know it's not a real placo in tho brougham of
to-day, though in tho past tho cushion of the
seat was ralsotl, a ljd lifted up, and there were
tho instruments of warfare.

In hor brougham my lady has everything

her while 6ho waits for something, and a fan
in case she should be a little warm. This is
her carriage for cold or stormy days. In the
sunshine, if she is not in a victoria, sho is in a
cabriolet. This carriage i3 fancied by French
women. It is swung higher than tho victoria,
lacks Its breadth, has a very high back, and is
usually lined with a light cloth. In front it
has a high dashboard such as is not seen on
the victoria. It forces one to sit up as if an
extra dose of ramrod tea had added stiffness
to one's back, and it may bo cited as a carriage
of caprice rather than one of comfort. To
drive oneself tho high curricle with Its broad
dashboard, its brass bar, its clock strapped
just in the centre of the dashboard, and show
ing against the highly varnished leather is fan
cied. So far only a few have been seen in the
park, and these have been driven by men, but
undoubtedly they will become women's car
riages when it is known that one of the pret
tiest of curricles Ib driven by tho daughters of
the Prince of Wales, all of whom are like
their mother, very good whips.
CA1UUAGES OK THE VANDEIU1ILTS.
Mrs. William Vanderbilt diives in a quiet,
refined-looking victoria, and so does Mrs.
Willie K. Vanderbilt, but Mrs. Seward Webb
goes through the park in a huge landau that
seems like the one that Queen Victoria uses
when she wishes to delight tho eyes of tho
multitude. It is huge, It is awkward-looking,
and it Is pretentious. Tho sort of woman who
Is seen in such a carriage requires ago and
tho most positive social recognition. If Mrs.
August Belmont, Mrs. Astor, or Mrs. William
II. Vanderbilt were in 6uch a turnout it would
bo considered richt and proper, but when a
younger woman looks like a dotlet on tho "1"
in it, only laughter and ridicule aro provoked.
Can't an American woman have what she
wants ? asks somebody who is very patriotic.
Certainly. She can put ou a Worth frock
and rido on an ash-cart if sho likes to, but just
as certainly will sho make herself ridiculous,
and that no woman, American or otuerwiso,
can afford to do.
MOKNING IN CENTItAIi 1'AItK.
In tho oarly morning tho park is filled with
riders and women who are drivlngout with tho
little folk from the nursery, aud with the sun
shine and the green framing Itlook6 6omehow
as if paradise had opened its gates aud all the
nice little cherubs had tumbled down. Tho
proudest woman is the young, good-looking
one, who can havo four Bmall people crowded
into her due, and who charges the footman in
tho rumblo to keep an eye on them aud see
that none of them fall out, while she watches
the horses and sees that they behave them
selves. Tho little people usually have along
with them their own special pets, and dolls,
kittens, aud small and big dogs are noted as
their chosen friends. One weo bit of a girl,
who goes out every morning with her proud
mamma, has a whito kitten, dressed iu a long
white slip, which wears a pink sunbonnet tied
under Its chin. It sits in her lap iu a most

hide the four feet, it is difficult to believe
that it is not ono baby carrying another. In
another establishment whoro they rejoice In
triplets two dogs, one a fox terrier, tho other
a King Charles, (and do not think for a
minuto that this Is not the truth,) and a tiny
alligator in a glass box go out driving in tho
morning. And really I do not think tho
proud possessor of the alligator finds it less
troublesome than do the owners of the dogs,
tho fox terrier having a never-ending desire
to bite the ears of the King Charles. It is a
most beautiful thing in tho springtime to see
how thoroughly and entirely babies are in
WOMAN'S IIAIIt MUST SHINE.
It doesn't make much difference whether
your locks arc golden or brown, ashen or
black; to have tho stamp of la mode upon
them they must shine like satin, and the wo
man who wants to bo, in tho fashion Is racing
around chemist to chemist trying to get some
thing that will give her hair tho requisite
glossy hue, and yet which will not be abso
lutely greasy. Ofteuest vaseline is used for
this purpose, but the objection to it Is that it
will stick to tho hair and something is needed
that will give the desired gloss without tho
oily effect. Of course, there is something,
aud tho woman who knows it is mean enough
to keep tho secret to herself. Sho feels that
sho has to pay a high price for it, and sho don't
propose to sell her information. Women aro
mean about somo things. A well-known
barber says that Mrs. Langtry used a combina
tion of vaseline and lampblack to darken and
make glossy her hair, but it sounds like such
a messy mixture that it is taken with a grain
of salt tho Information, I mean, not tho vase
line and lampblack. Brushing your hair will
give it a shine, but to make it of tho gloss de
sired you havo got to uso somethiug else.
And, by-the-by, it may bo mentioned, for tho
protection of Charlie, Harry, and Tom, that
tho real stuff leaves no grease in tho locks, and
that tho girl whoso head makes a mark on a
coat isn't tho ono who knows the secret of tho

The Pntent-Lienther Shoe.
It Is only within tho last year or so that the
patent-leather shoe has been used to any great
extent for overy-day wear. But it has grown
mightily In popular favor, and is to-day con
sidered by well-dressed people as almost in
dispensable. Aside from tho neat, finished
appearance which it lends to tho woll-dresaed
person, thoy aro very durable, and aro made
in a great variety of styles. There Is no doubt
that they will bo "tho shoo" for tho coming
season, and in anticipation of tho great de
mand Messrs. Wilson & Carr, of 920 1" street
northwest, have prepared for your inspection
tho handsomest and most varied assortment
in this lino of footwear over shown in Wash

risky at best, but its wearing qualities depend
in a great measure upou tho caro taken of
them. Messrs. Wilson & Carr feel safe in as
serting that their grade of $5 pateut-leather
Bhoes Is not surpassed anywhere for the price,
and tho $7.50 and $10 grades can bo relied
upon as being the best obtainable. Special
attentiou is called to these patent-leather
goods, but they aro prepared to show you a
