Good authority ou social usages advises a lady who Is Invited to any entertainment by a now acquaintance, whether tho invitation camo through a friend or not, to immediately leave cards and Bond either a regret or acceptance. Whether sho attend tho entertainment or not eho ; should call after It within a week, Then, having done all that is polite and having shown horsolf a woman of good breeding, she can koop up tho acquaintance or not, us she pleases, In Convorsntlou, There is a certain distinct but subdued tone of voice peculiar tQ i>qrsons of the best breeding. It is bettor to eir by the use ot too low than of Md loutl a tone. A halt opened mouth! o smile ready to overflow any moment Jnto a laugh, a vaqaut stare, a wandering- eyo, aro all evidences, of ill breeding. Next to unexceptionable) diction, a correct pronunciation, distiiict enunciation and a frank, self controlled bearing, it is necessary to bo genial. Do not go into society unless you make up your mind to be cheerful, sympathetic, animating an well as animated. In declining an inyitatiqn of any kind, be lareful to exuress your "regret" (n a most deferential manner. To send a card with the ] word "regrets" written upon it is most impo- j lite. A written note with some such formula j as "lire. -Brown regrets that a previous en- , gagement will dupi-ive her of the pleasure of , accepting the polite invitation of Mrs. Jones" ; is the suitable response. An invitation is an j act of courtesy and an expression of regard which deserves a respectful acknowledgment whether it be accepted or declined. A Short but Hard Itulo.
