AMERICAN GIRLS LEAD.
German Compare* Styles of Walking
by Women of Dlfl'crent Countries.
"Jr«t look at the gait of an American
girl!" exclaims a south German news
paper writer, who has studied the sub
ject seven years, in an article on how
women should walk.
"A lady should not drag her feet
after toer as if they were as heavy as
sacks of potatoes. Neither should she
throw them forward as if she were a
soldier oh parade. She should move
her feet lightly, daintily and easily
with a slight, springy action, but the
spring must not be overdone.
"A lady must walk straight physi
cally as well as morally. Her knees
should be straight and her toes slightly
turned out. There must be no artificial
bend or limp no affectation of lassi
tude on the, one hand or of horsiness on
the other. She should walk like a
princess and not like a scrubwoihan
hurrying to work. She must not bustle
through with her shoulders constantly
in evidence and swinging her arms
about like the English.
"Above all, she should hold her chin
high like the Americans. This high
chin is a most important matter, as it
lends style and dignity." -ij?
Then come a comparison between the
gaits of the women of various civil
ized countries. The Americans and
Parisians are an easy iirst, but if the
wrjter must give the palm to one of
these he would bestow it on the Ameri
cans. Italian women are high up on
the list and German and English
women very low down. He believes
thnt Hungarian ladies, if they were
more idignitied, might run the Ameri
cans very close.

St. Valentine, long the patron saint ot
courtship, has come in our day to be
long almost as wholly to children as does
our good old friend, St. Nicholas. The
paper lace and tinsel, the gaily printed
loves and doves and roses of. ready-made
valentines make pretty playthings,^ and
signify a suitable exchange of childish
attentions but they are quite beneath the
dignity of young folk old enough to take
themselves seriously as lovers.
Indeed, the courting quality has quite
vanished from the day, which u§ed as
readers of Scott's "Fair Maid of Perth"
will remember—to be a very important
one to maids and bachelors of long ago.
Most of the customs attendant on its' old,
observance have perished also. But the
opportunity tff an anonymous gift re
mainsV and whether it is to be given to
lad or lass, little or big, whether it is a
token of friendship or an offering of sen
timent, the custom is a pretty and grace
ful one, and a pleasing survival from
times gone by.
Christmas and birthday gifts are de
lightful because we do know the .givers,
but the charm ot a valentine lies in the
very fact that we do not. It is interest
ing .to guess, agreeable to discover, ex
citing to have the mystery remain un
solved. There is also added satisfaction
in the circumstance that, being anony
mous, the valentine is the sincerest and
most disinterested of tributes, carrying
neither an obligation nor an expectation
Flowers, or—with reference to the
early traditions of the day—a pair of
gloves, or a book of lyrics make perhaps
the most suitable gifts for St. Valentine's
day, exclusive of the shop-made valen
tines. An attractive substitute for these
can also be found in good photographs
from any of the numerous Cupids so pop
ular with artists of all centuries, from
the sculptured marble grace of1 the Cupid
of Praxiteles to the rings of dancing
loves by Albani, and the countless flock
of winged and dimpled babies of more
recent art. It is needless to add that
Feb. 14 is the budding poets' annual op
portunity, and that no tribute is quite so
fitting as an 'original one in verse.
In old times gifts were not only anony
mous, but sent in mysterious ways. An
amusing scene of a famous drama repre
sents the girlish heroine receiving a val
entine from the hero it arrives in the
middle of a large plum cake, from which,
too excited even to nibble by the .way, she
rapturously extracts it, and holds it tri
umphantly up to view. It consists of
two large red hearts transfixed by a
long, yellow arrow in the center of a
plain sheet of foolscap.
If such a valentine were sent to-day,
it is probable the cake would be more ap
preciated than the contents, and that the
fair recipient's digestion would be af
fected rather than her" Beart.—Youth's
Love Tokens of the Faat,
Sir Walter Scott, in his "Fair Maid
of Perth" on St. Valentine's day, has
