THE SUNDAY HERALD, SUNDAY, A1PRIL 20, 1S90. THICKS OP PRETTY WOMAN. BAIl TUI.T,S A STOKY OF TWO HEARTS STRANGER THAN FICTION. A Soclnl Comedy In Four Acts Drawn From Life. "With lloal Characters A Husband Who Was a Pillar of Virtue, Rut His Wlfo Was aTrino Too Cloror for Him. Special Correspondence of Sunday Herald. New Yoiik, April IS, 1890. ETerybody Is in a Btnto unllko Mr. Bellamy's book tbnt 1b, they arc not looking backward, but looking forward. It Eccms to bo taken for granted that all the world and bis wife arc go ing some place this summer, but not, however, until after the races, after the beautiful June days, and af tor the weather has quito decided what it intends to do. The woman who wants to make the most 6how on tho least money goes abroad; she buys no now clothes for this per formance, she gets her winter outfit over there; if she has friends she enjoys herself hugely, and if she hasn't slio knocks about sight-seeing, economizing, and feeling herself altogether the most virtuous of persons. It's funny how care ful people are to inquire who are going on cer tain steamers. Not very long ago a wholo party positively declined to travel on one on which would be two or three of our millionaires. It was said that while they mightn't tip any more, thoy literally ruled tho boat for tho tlmo being, inasmuch as tho mighty name had Its effect on captain and officers, on stewards and maids. It goes to show that Uie divine William didn't know exactly what he was talking about when lie said there was nothing in a name. AS rnBTTT WOUAX SAILS FOR EUIIOPE. The sights on steamor day are at onco funny and pathetic. Pick out a pretty woman who is bidding hor husband cood-byo, who has a crowd of friends about, and just listen to her. She indulges in a monologuo something after thi6 fashion: "Oh, oh, oh, how can I ever leave you ! I know I shall be sick tho vqry minute wo get past Sandy Hook ! My dearest girl, 1 will leave that order in London with a tailor, but I can't promise it will bo a good fit. Oh, doctor, did you bring mt down somothlng lor ten-slckncss ? No, Kitty, thore's no use telling them to put any more flowers In my state-room; have them sent down to the captain's table. My dearest boy, what will I do without you ? I will think of you every day, and cable to you. No, I will not speak to those theatrical people on board, and they needn't stare at mo in that way. It was very good indeed of you to come down. Thank you very much indeed for our kindness, but I do grieve so for my hus "band. I know I will have a nice time. The reason he can't go is something about stocks, but he's coming over after me, and we are go ing down to Monte Carlo together, because I do so want to gamble, now can I leave you ? How can I leave you ? Is my nose red ? If it is, do tell Kitty to bring me a little powder on a handkerchief." After this the bell rang, wo all filed off. The dearest friend stood on a pilo of lumber at the end of the dock and waved good-bye to the departed one, who, lost to all sense of whether her nose was red or whether it wasn't, was weeping on her maid's shoulder and being consoled by at least ten other women. However, she chirped up enough to wave a large red-silk handkerchief at the last, and as I went homo I thought what a delightful incom prehensible creature a woman was. UEUNIIAllDT AS A FASUION LEADER. The news comes from the other side that the jieur-de-lls is as rampant as tho British lion. It is on skirts in the shape of embroidery, it con stitutes a brooch made of diamonds, pearls, or sapphires, it is embroidered with gold thread on book covers, albums, table cloths, and all the little belongings that are counted artistic, .and all this because MadameBernhardthasbeen playing Joan of Arc. There is not another woman in the world who can so entirely make or unmake a fashion, and undoubtedly if her ladyship took It into her head to appear In a coffee snek we would all be considering how we could get one, and bow near wo could make it look ju6t like hers. Bastion Lepage's picture of Joan of Arc aud Bembardt's rendition of her story has done more to interest tho world of to day in her than anything else; for, if tho truth must be told, alongside somo of tho more in tense heroines, femininity had grown to tiilnk her a bit insipid. However, insipidity and Sarah Bernhardt are as far apart as brandy and water; and I really believe sho could take the tiresome heroine of tho novel of thirty years ago and make her Interesting. a woman's idea or genius. Tho woman of genius can do anything. Nothing Is Impossible to her, and yet as the world goes you ought to bo thankful that genulse6 are few and far between. Geuuisin a masculine form Is a little more insufferable than when it is fomlnlne perhaps I oughtu't to say that, perhaps I haven't the great adoratlou for tho male genius that I ought to but I must confess that the few specimens 1 have seen have impressed me, first of all, with tho keen admi ration thoy had for themsolvcs and then tho great sense of tho smallness of tho rest of tho world, and that isn't quite nice. I have an in tense liking for men, but when they are cads, even In the line of genius, they are the most jnsuflerablo ones that ever existed. How men can wrlto wonderful books, paint wondorful pictures, and make wonderful speeches and yet keep a mean little bit of leaven in them is -something I do not understand, and don't sup pose anybody else does. A bTOUY OF TWO MEAItTS. Who was it that said that nothiug interesting really happened except outside of fiction? 'Here's something that happened out of which a good 6tory might bo made. On Easter Day a loving husband gave to a pretty wife a little heart, a moonstoue set about with diamonds, haviug engraved on tho gold back "With Tom's Love." It was strung on a very thin chain, and madame wore it with great delight. This wa6 Act tho First. Act tho Second saw a sad-faced man an nouncing that he had to goto BoBtonfortwo days, and a pretty woman with tears in her oyes bidding him good-bye. As 60on as ho had do parted, tho pretty woman rings the messenger call and sends a note to a frleud of her hus band's. He appears later on with a hansom, and tho two drive out beyond the Park to a jdaco where private room6 aro let for dinners. Thoy had .a beautiful time, a good dinner, and tho only thing that annoyed them was that tho waller said tho room had really been engaged before, and they must leave a little sooner than thoy liked, for people were watting for them to go. Homo thoy camo, good-night was said on tho doorstop, madame went to bed and 6lcpt tho sleep that comes to the unjust, for tho just seem to get precious little of it. Act Third showed a merry-faced man, tho traitor who was supposed to bo in Boston; with him a dashing young woman in a cloth suit, with a shirt front, a monocle in hor eye, a stiff sailor hat cocked on her vcry-much-dyod hair, and something more than a suspicion of rougo under her oyes. Seated at tho table, sho began to talk in the manner usual to such highly edu cated ladles, when suddenly she spied something glittering on tho iloor. She stooped down, picked it up, looked at it, and said, "Hallo, do you catch on to the heart ?" Beaching out his hand for It, her admirer took It, looked at one side in a quick way, and turned over tho other and read the inscription, "With Tom's Love." His face underwent as many changes as doc6 a kaleidoscope. How did thab heart couio there? no couldn't go homo and find out, for he was supposed to be in Boston; it would tako two days to settle it, aud then ho would f aco that wicked woman and charge her with her perfidy. Act Fourth. Two days after he came homo ho mot his wife as if she wore an escaped con vict, and ho a pillar of virtue. Ho produced the heart and said, "Whore did you lose this?" in a tono that made her fox-terrier begin to whine. She said, "But, my dear, I haven't lost it," aud putting her hand on her throat sho drew up the chain, showed a little heart just like it. with the self-samo inscription on tho back I Scene Injured Innocenco. But quickly camo the inquiry from the innocent, " Whero did you find it ?" It is unnecessary to say that tho mas culine imagination was sufficient to make up somo story about picking it up in the street-car and thinking how careless 6he had been, but the masculino insight into tho feminine heart was also sufficient to make him know that from that day on he was a suspected man. Was it her heart ? Certainly, but she hadn't read the "Three Mousquetaires" for nothing, and within twelve hours after that heart was lost sho had a duplicate of it with the proper inscription on tho back, and was prepared to meet her lord and master and calmly He, as only a woman can. This is the story of two hearts, not with a single thought, but Involved iu one adventure. And tho moral ? There doesn't seem to be any particular moral in It, except the advisability of having your wits about you, and the reading of Dumas. GIULS AS CLEVEH FOSEUS. The posing young woman is very much to the fore, aud as fashionable drawing-rooms aro fur nished with a view of aiding her in her artistic desires she is happy. You see a tall, slender girl in somo sort of a soft frock draped in Greek fashion, with fillets of gold about her hair, stand ing in one corner of the room under a tall palm tree. You think what a good background she has and how lovely the entire effect is, and if you aro a man you believe It is an accident. If you are a woman you give her an admiring glance, and say to your chum, "She has her pose." You see a tailor-made girl, who is call ing, with her hands clasped behind her, standing up in a very erect way against the side of a mantel-shelf, aud it all seems to harmonlzo the nat ural wood, the straight lines of her figure, tho somewhat decided way in which she is speaking, the polish on her patent-leather shoes and on her smoothly braided hair; she has succeeded, she is posed there. There's another girl who has come in in a lingering, dawdling sort of a way, envel oped in a long, soft, full cloak, and with a pic ture hat laden with plumes crowning a mass of fluffy, disorderly hair, and after 6he has 6aii her good-afternoon to the hostess sho half sits, half reclines against a pile of cushions; one of her adorers brings a footstool to her, and her small foot, In its Louis Quinze shoe, shows to best ad vantage, and sho drawls as she talks. She's got her pose. It's the semi-lazy, semi-serpentine ef fect of a woman who looks awkward in a tailor suit, whose angles are too many for her to pose against a palm-tree, but who is filled in and rounded by her full draperies and hersoft, many colored backgrounds. They do 6tudy it out, and there is no reason why one should dislike it. If a woman looks the better for being well posed society Is the valuer rather than the loser by It. TKINOS hest not to dislike. It Isn't wise, you know, to have strong likes and dislikes, especially when thoy aro only di rected against weaknesses, .uie is too snort, my friend, for you to hate so emphatically so many things. If you aro a woman it will affect your skin and make wrinkles come about your mouth. If you aro a man it will affect your digestion. Don't dislike the woman who is prettily gowned; she Is not of necessity a fool. Don't dislike the book that is interesting; It's not bound to be traBh. Don't dislike the music that is catching; it has a much greater mission than any of Wagner's oporas. Don't dislike tho woman who changes her mind bo thankful that sho knows when she has made a mistake. Don't dislike men who dress well and aro good mannered; it's just possible they aro gentlemen. Don't dislike children; remember somebody had to bear with you once. Don't dislike women who have to earn their own living; there's not a single one of them who wouldn't rather have a man doing It for her. Don't dislike this world aud find it uninterest ing and tiresome; you may have to go to one where things will bo more Intense aud more dls. tractlng perhaps, but even less to bo liked. Don't dislike auythlug except that which Is mean, low, vulgar, and wicked. Bah. Who in tho bent posted man? Tho man who rotirtHTho Simduy Horulil. llocuuso ho KtltH Tho heat Telegraphic News.
