Small Fortunes in Slippers A Coming New Actress Tho Newest Stylos of Feminine Stationery. Special Correspondence of Sunday Herald. New York, Jan. 30 It is not exactly the proper quotation, but it is true, "that all things come to her -who knoweth how to walk," and by knowing how to walk, I mean to go out in all sorts and conditions of weather, and keep your eyes open wide, so that you see everything, from the shop-windows to the pretty girls, from the sunshine to the clear blue sky, and you can get absolutely intoxicated with the fresh air. Now, the material side of knowing how to walk is un known to the New York woman. When she goes in for being stately she takes two long steps and three short ones, and when she is in a hurry she trots. A woman trotting, especially if she Is waving a muff to stop a street-car, is much more ridiculous than the woman who is doing an amateur tobogganing down a high stoop, and she ought to realize this, and cease her frantic rush. A French woman can hasten, and you are never conscious of anything ridiculous in her walk. inn BEST WAIiKCRS IN TIIIS COUNTRY are the Southern women, who from natural in dolence put the foot down with ease, and are taught early in life that they must land first on their toes, and not on their heels. The Western woman walks with emphasis, as if sbo meant to get there, and, usually, I think she does. The Philadelphia woman has a little bit of an inclina tion to mince, and an occasional startled air about her, as if sho were afraid of being quick in her movements. To walk well, have u comfort able shoe, that fits tho foot, with a medium high heel, and always put tho toes down firBt; thiB gives a good carriage, throws tho hips in their proper position, Itensifies the springy movement, and makes tho man passing by you very con scious of the fact that you are well 6haped about tho shoulders, and have a graceful curvo from tho waist down. A woman who walks well is a pleasure to look at, and every man who knows her feels himself honored by being seen with her. DIAMONDED SLIPPERS, BUT THEY WERE NO. 1. The real fin dc sicclc is for tho man of your hsarfc to give you not gloves, not flowers, not sweets, though these may all coino in duo sea son, but slippers. Slippers such as Cinderella wore; slippers that glitter with buckles of gold or silver, sometimes of precious stones, and that have tho highest of heels and tho narrowest and most pointed of toes. With them always comes a wish that your feet may go In pleasunt places, or the slippers comowitha hope that you may walk through life beside him who loves you with all tho Intensity of his henrt. It's very touching. But I think the most touched girl in New York wasonowuo got a pair of white satin slippers and on the too of each, JiiEtead of a buckle, was a beautiful diamond butterily, that might bo used as a brooch or a hair ornament when it was not doing duty on tho slipper. I consider those slip- perstho first excuse I have over seen for any body putting their feet on tho rnantel-shelf; but tho funny part of it Is that tho young man be lieved that his own darling wore a No. 1, whereas 6he found it difficult to get into u Ho. 3, Sho couldn't change tho slippers, for she couldn't flpd out whero they carao from, but sho bought herself a pair exactly like thorn, removed tho biitteiilies, and dances around and over that ypung man's heart with perfect unconcern. SMALL FORTUNES IN SMALL SLIPPERS. Another pretty pair of ellppurs sent to a fiance were of gold brocade, with buckles glittering with topaz. These were to bo worn at a dinner where tho engagement was announced, and tho gown with them was ono of deep yellow chiffon. The man who sent theso slippers will certainly make a good husband, for with them came a ' lovely yellow gauzo foil on tortoise-shell pticks, with a monogram wrought out in topaz; a pair of pulo-yollow gloves thut reachod fur up over tho arm, while very far down Jn tho too of each slipper was a pale-yellow silk stocking. These all came together with tho note from him, and later in tho day, without any card, presumably not from him, arrived a box, in which were en cased a pair of garters, ono black, tho other yellow, the buckles set with topaz, and on ono Shirte Tho Model, 1)03 Seventh street northwest.

Tho girl was so happy sho couldn't tell whether it camo from the carter or the man who sent it, but of course sho know he did, and sho intends to thank him in tho prettiest way possible after her marriage. A NEW YORK WOMAN'S ANCESTORS. Everybody can't have ancestors that is, of course, everybody does have ancestors, but they aro not always particularly vain of them, nor anxious to introduce them to tho public at large. Several times millionaires may not object to having thieves, and liars, and forgers, and men who die on the wrong end of the rope among their progenitors, but plain, ordinary, every-day people have an idea that they would rather their "parients" far back should bo more or less re spectable, presumably more. A bright woman, with no blue blood to speak ot, has solved the ancestral picture fashion in a very amusing way. Sho herself is a very beautirul woman, and she earned her living by her needle and her brush; that is, doing very fine embroidery for various decorative societies, and by painting menus and cards for the largo shops. A man whoso riches are great and whose blood is most cerulean fell in love with her and made her his wife. This family had a slight inclination to scoff, not be cause she had earned her own living thank God, that Is a credit to a woman nowadays but be cause she hadn't come of gentle folk. She never seemed to know this had tho tact to ignore it in a most beautiful manner. At her first after noon tea the members oE the family and her In timate friends were invited into her own spe cial room to see the pictures of, as sho funnily put it, "tho women who have preceded me," and thero she had, either in colors or photo graphs, tho picture of almost every woman who had triumphed through her beauty. She had Cleopatra, Catherine of Russia, Lady Hamilton, the three beautiful Gunnings, Mrs. Fitzgerald, Nell Gwynne, Adelaide Neilson, Lady Lonsaale, Lady Dudley, Mrs. Langtry, and, as tho latest, tho variety actress Belle Bllton Lady Duulo. Everybody was delighted, everybody confessed to her wit, and I don't think even from the old frumps in tho family she will ever hear another word about who her ancestors were. Apropos of beautiful women, the Cleopatra of Madame Bernhardt has been described to mo bv u man who is a good critic, and who is an ardent admirer of Sarah. He says it is a failure, and a most dire one, and what do you think he ascribes tho failure to ? That Sarah Is too fat. It's a little curious, but I don't doubt it, for tho last time she was over here sho hud increased in fiesh, and everybody knows that tho women ofhorraco have a decided tondency to fat as they grow old. The Cleopatra of Mrs. Langtry is said to be a beautiful one, although it is an English one; the stage-setting is said to bo better than that in Paris, although that shown by Fanny Davenport hero far surpassed both of tho others. EVERY BBAUTIFUL WOMAN seems to have a deairo to play Cleopatra, and as nobody believes that Cleopatra gained her sway solely by her beauty, it Is odd that they do not roalizo what an enormous task they aro under taking. To depict tho woman who was as subtle as the first serpent, who could usoeuch charm to its best udvantaue, and who was as cruol as tho coldest steel, while as loving as tho hottest flro, does not seem difficult to them. Tho rage for representing Julietseemstohavo subsided, and every amateur wants to picture tho woman who had Ciesar's and Maro Antony's lovo as well as tho adoration of the Egyptaln populace. They had better remain content with Juliot, for after all, most of us hava endured such agonies in seeiug tho sweet maid dono by amateurs that wo no louger mlud the dose. A COMING NEW ACTRESS. .It i3 annouueed that Miss Elsie do Wolfo is going on tho stage professionally, I mean, lyiiat courage some women have! Sbo is a tolerably good amateur, sho i3 not good-looking and sho is not young, and yet sho is bravo enough to face an audience who uro expected to pay for their appreciation, or lack of it, of her attempt to try it on them. Certainly the America woman has a beautiful belief in tho patlenco of the American people, but wo havo had a littlo bit too much of this, aud even a worm win turn at last, ana tno aown-troaaen American, when it does turn, in a body, turns for good. Till! NEW KIND OY FEMININE STATIONERY. What kind of paper do you use? Tho very latest is card-like in shape, being the ordinary noto size, but not doubled. It is tolerably stiff, and a pale gray, and your cipher must bo wrought in gold at the top of it, while your ad dress 1b in gold at the foot of tho sheot. This is written on with white ink, and in tho largest Neckwear northwest. -Tho Model, 903 Seventh street handwriting imaginable. Tho sheet goes into tho envelope without folding, and when tho let ter comes to you it looks like an official docu ment. A messenger boy can't got it into his pocket, so ho usually marks it with hand deco rations. The postmaster can'tstrap it in with his other letters, so ho carries it by itself, and con siders you a great swell to get it, and tho person who wrote it somebody with moro monoy than ho has. Nobody ever makes a mistake in writ ing on plain white paper that folds once. For myself I havo a liking for large-sized sheets, but tho littlo billets to-day are sent on very small ones. CHARACTER TOLD IN STATIONERY. It isn't so much, after all, what tho paper is as what tho envelope contains, though you almost know before 5ou open it. That old-fashioned-looking envelope, directed in a running Italian hand, such as was taught in the schools forty years ago, comes from some body's mother; you can almost see tho signature, which is only "Your devoted mother." That pale-gray letter, redolentof violet, closely sealed with white wax, and having "immediate" written far up in the corner, is from somebody's sweetheart, and it is signed "Ever faithfully thine own true love." That business envelope with tho name and ad dress of "John Brown, Lawyer," crossed over with Ink, is from a wife to her husband; she is using one of his business envelopes, and tho letter ends, "Always your affectionate wife." and below that is a postscript which tells that baby has put a kiss In tho corner. That severe-looking envelope, with tho name of a collection agency on it, is somo young man's tailor bill. Poor chap, probably his worst fault was vanity, but ho will have to pay tho piper now. That legaMooklng envelope is from a lawyer to his client, announcing that a case was lost. That square little thing, with its gold cipher and its pointed handwriting, is tho acceptance that a pretty girl has given to a dance. That blaok-bordered envelope is from some body who has written a letter of thanks for a word of condolence that camo in a time of trouble. And that squaro whlto envelope, with a cipher in gold and tho motto, "Litcra scripta manct," that announcement that "what I write I mean," Is from Bab. Consumption Surely Cured.
