York and Washington society gives the following rules in regard to card etiquette: "The duty of 'leaving cards principally devolves upon the mistress of the house. The wife leaves cards for her husband as well as for herself. The daughter leaves cards for her father. The niece leaves cards for her uncle. "It Is not etiquette for ladles, either married or single, to leave cards on bachelors, except after , as entertainment given by a bachelor at which they are present. "Between ladles the etiquette of card-leaving is very strictly followed and punctiliously observed in all Its laws. . (, The most fashionable hours for leaving cards Is between 3 and 5:30 o'clock, 2:30 and 6 being the earliest as well as the latest possible hours. Visiting cards must be left in parson ; they should never be sent by post ; It Is a great breach of etiquette to do so under any circumstances. The engraving should be in script, clearly and handsomely cut on copper plate, and printed on brlstol cardboard of correct size. In acknowledging presents or Invitations, cards almost exclusively used are "Mr. and Mrs.," ladles In calling Invariably using both their own and husband's cards. The address on cards should be In .right-hand corner and reception day in left-hand corner. . - A married lady should never use her Christian name oq a. card, but her husband's Christian name. The .elder branch of a family use surname only, as "Mrs. Brown;" all others, the Christian name before the surname. It would . be incorrect were the prefix of "Miss" omitted from a young lady's card. One card for all the members of a family can not with propriety be left when calling, any more than an invitation to dinner, party or reception can be sent to Include all the family. ' Separate Invitations are expected and must be extended, and separate cards must be left for each member of the family as a courtesy, and showing that they were remembered; it is a solecism to do otherwise. If the lady upon whom the call Is made Is 'at home" the caller, on leaving the house, should leave two of her husband's cards one each for the master and mistress of the house. She should leave none of her own. If the caller finds her acquaintance "not at home," she leaves one of her own cards and two of her husband's, her card being for the mistress of the house. ; - Leave one card . when : attending an afternoon reception. " ; . , ' Where the Invited guest does not attend, her card should be sent during the hours of the reception. ; " ' A lady calling, accompanied by her hus band, and the lady being at home, the husband would leave one of . his cards for the master of the house the only oard which would be left. If the master of the house was also at home, then no cards would be left. If there were a daughter or daughters, the lady calling would leave a separate card for the daughters. She would not leave her husband's cards for the daughters. Turning down the corners of visiting cards signifies that the ladles of the family as 'well as the hostess, are Included In the call. Turning down the end of a card signifies same as the corner. , Turning down the corner is not now considered strictly correct, as it is better form to leave a card for each lady called upon. A caller should leave her husband's card or cards, if there are sons where she calls. Never write on the card left the name of the person for whom IT is intended. This is only permissible when the acquaintance Is a guest at some hoteL - Calls or cards should always be returned within a week. If possible, or ten days at the latest, after they have been left ; within a week would be more courteous. This rule is especially binding in returning first calls and making party calls. - Some ladles labor under the mistake of supposing that their acquaintances should first call upon them upon their arrival in or return to town, - but common-sense would point to the contrary, even if .there were no etiquette m the matter, i-, , -. . As friends cannot be supposed ' to guess of your arrival they therefore require to be officially Informed of it by means of visiting cards being left or mailed them. Visiting cards must be left after every entertainment by . those invited whether the invitation has been accepted or not. They must be left Immediately, that is, within a week. This applies , to , dinners, dances, amateur concerts or any other form of entertainment. - -, - ' " . ' .' Cards can be left with a newly farmed acquaintance only after she has been met often enough to be considerable desirable. The custom of residents calling upon newcomers is principally confined to out-of-town society, and is not done indiscriminately, but is governed by individual status in society and class. In the country the residents are the first to can on the newcomers. This they do after having ascertained the position which the newcomers occupy in society.

The Reversible Hat. Some time ago the New York Evening World gave a description of the reversible hat. It is pictured here to-day. The high - trimmings may be worn at front or back, although it would seem at first glance that the reversed hat In the illustration betrays the fact that It Is turned the wrong way. Album Sachet.

The Baby's Nurse. In these days,, when but very few mothers take charge of their own babies, Is It any wonder that the demand for nursemaids being so great there are many more thoroughly incompetent women to look after the little ones than those who can be trusted to care for them properly. A mother somehow seems to forget in her relief at being able to have some time to herself that she Is entrusting a little life to a teacher as well as caretaker. If the baby Is not physically abused she rests easy, and does not worry about the corner, stone that Is being laid In the morals and education of her son or. daughter by the pre eepts and example of the nurse chosen to took after them. ' of course a mother does not wish her child to be Ill-treated, yet she should have a care for Its mind as well as its body, and secure, if possible, an Intelligent as well as kind-hearted person to be with the child.. Nursemaids should receive as much compensation as governesses, for In reality the position of one embodies that of the other, and the strong-limbed, able-bodied . but illiterate creature who is "so good to the baby',' often proves "so bad" for him when bis receptive mind nas drunk tn her teaching., learned her pronunciation and patterned by her ways. A refined, low-spoken girl, with Innate principle, even If she Is a little cross at times.
