The article follows: The customs receipts during the first seven months of the McKinley'law were $127,123,942, those of the first teven months of the Wilson law are $96,457.646. The Internal revenue receipts under the McKinley law were In the first seven months $80 488.340; thoao of the first seven months of the Wilson law $59.359 616. The total receipts during the first seven months of the McKlnley law were $219.583,107; those of the first eeven months'of the WiUon law were $161,744,668. The total receipts during- the closing seven .months of the MoKinley law were $197,684,224, against $161,744,. 6C8 in the seven months of the new law, with importers rushing in their new goods and buyers filling the shelves which they had permitted to become empty in order to get the benefit of the new tariff. So take the new law any way you may, compare its operations with the McKlnley law al he beginning or at its ending, and you will find it at a disadvantage. There has not been a single month since the new tariff went Into effect, without a deficiency The average deficiency has been $6,000,000 a monih, while the McKinley law showed a surplus of $21,000,000 or an average of $8,000,000 a month, in its first seven months. Even in all the unfavorable conditions of its last seven months, it only created a deficiency of *2,000,000 a month, against the $6,000.000 a month which the Wilson law has shown under the favorable conditions in. which it found the markets of foreign goods. Here are the figures, side by side, comparing the operations of the Wil~ (OD law In itt first or la*i eeven months; tbe reader can take hia choice: Receipts, first seven months, Wilson law, $161 744 668; McKinley. $219.. 583,107 Receipts, Uct •even months of McKlnley law, $197584224.

It bas been my doubtful fortune to read a number of them, and I came to tbe conclusion, as they invariably contra- dieted each other, that good manners were the result of kindness aud sympathy . That so-called social laws differed in every city, and that the women who wero counted as social leaders made laws for themselves. 1 h»d no intention of starting an "Answers to Correspondence" bureau; but it has been forced upon ma. I regard it an greatness, but aa a greatness that is not to be longed for, -inasmuch as, when you tell somebody that a certain rule exists where you live, you are at onoe contradicted )v some- bod; else, who says that they don't do it that way ID Philadelphia or Kala. mazoo, in Boston or St. Jo. Now, U is to be understood in answering these most interrogatory • 'letters" that I am telling what they do in New York. A C0*IOtJS SOCIAL LETTER. The thing that troubles women moat is the simplest function in tbe world — the afternoon tea. She who Is Invited wants to know if she must send an answer. To this I raost certainly say, no. Her appearance, is enough; but, if she doesn't go, and is A married woman, she sends, by post, Jn a card envelope addressed to her hostess, one of her own and two of her husband's cards. If she goes, she lenves the same number of cards, and she makes no after call. If she Is asked to a dinner, her note of acceptance or regret must be written at once and sho will certainly never be asked again if she sends such a note as this, which was received by a well known woman: "Mrs. Norfolk Howard regrets thai I cannot accept your kind invitation, but my husband has made an engagement for me, and if when he comes home be c»n break it, then Mr*. Norfolk Howard will be very glad indeed locome. "Yours truly. •'MRS ALICE NttKFOLK HOVTARD." Shades of Urammar, defend the writer of this! You, who asked me about signatures, mutt know that there are no circumstances that permit the prefixing of your title to your name. Business and formal notes are written in the third person. All other notes are signed, -'Mary Edwards Brown. 1 ' And if Mrs. Brown fears that the person gutting this letter will not know her title, she writes In parenthesis, in the lower right-hand corner, "Mrs. James Brown." To return to the tea. The wise hostess has her tea table in the most conveiient room, possibly the music possibly the dining room, ' If in the dining room the table is larger than in any other. If she should elect il to be in the drawing room it is a nmall table having- upon it a white cover made elaborate with embroidery and drawn work; then the-braae tea kettle with ite alcohol lamp under it, the tea pot, the tea caddy, an array of cups and saucers, a platter of wafers or tiny sandwiches, and a pile of napkins. There is wisdom in inviting a friend to serve the tea, and a neat maid, wearing apron and cap, should be trained to quietly remove cups that have been used and replenish the tea tabie with freeh ones. When a table is spread in the din- Ing room a more elaborate mesl is offered. By the bye, NKVEE USE THE WORD "REFRESHMENTS " It is intensely vulgar. Here there may be tea served at one end and and chocolate at the other. Cut glass dishes may be filled with strawberries, for which powdered sugar and whipped cream are offered as adjuncts, while sandwiches, tiny cakes and very small biscuit split and buttered while they are hot, are counted good form. From 4 o'clock on, people may drift In and out of the dining room aa they please. In London, they say. it is. only Americans who ehake hands. Here, that rather embarrassing fashion ia limited to the greeting of the hostess, while a simple bow ia considered sufficient for a new acquaintanca, and an old one gets a bow, smile and a few words. Those hideous jars advertised by tbe big shops aa "cracker jars," acd meant to hold small biscuits, and not as might be supposed, fiery trifles, suited for what a small Quaker boy called, "the Fourth day of Sev enth month," are no longer seen in good houses, for they are too suggestive of the pantry, or the grocers. In you «re aslted to dinner, you pay your hostess the compliment of dress* ing in your most beautiful gown, and wearing 1 your richest jewels. .You cannot overdress for a dinner, for your appearance is always a oompll-' moot to your hostels. Even at the most informal dinner, tbe host heads the procession to the dining room, taking with him that lady who is of most importance, while the hostess comes laat on the arm of the man of moat importance, who §ita on her right- as does the lady escorted by her husband on his right. The question of being seated, and the leaving- the table can be made easy by watching- the hostess, who suggests by a iook to each lady, where she wieb.es her to ail, while her hutband acts in the same manner toward the men. Eere an after dinner call should be made within ten days, although it is not considered necessary in London. EXW TO TREAT STKAXGERS. As a nation we are too prone to make presentations where they are not desired, and to give letters ot Intro, duoiion to acquaintances of recent data, A woman of the world will consider well before she vouches so- oially for one, and -then, when she does, her friends realize that she means all she says, and that she wishes them to show courtesy to tbe stranger who oomes in her name. In England, a letter of introduction la at once met by a dinner invitation, and for this reason, funnily enough, a witty American called hia numerous letters "eoup tloketa." The next letter is about cards. The received cards for ladles is quite thin, pure white, not as large as before, and with the name, addreaa and "at home" day engraved in ordinary script. There ia no excuse for a written card, nor for, horror ot hor- 1 rora! a pink one with a rose, painted by hand, in one corner! A young woman who graduated with high honors at a well known college, who read Hebrew and Greek as fluently as she did English, horrified a young- Englishman who bad visited at her father's rancbe by sending him, for a wedding invitation, a rose-colored printed card, having In one corner a picture of tbe bridegroom. Seeing her in the woods, where the conventionalities scarcely existed, be bad admired her wit, been attracted by ber beauty, and never dreamed until he got thle abomination how utterly ignorant she was as to all social laws. VISITING CARDS AND INVITATIONS. A young girl, who la just out. has her name engraved upon her mother's card, and the idea does not possess one of her own until she marries. One's Chrlbtlan name ii reserved for those whom one loves and who are close to one, consequently a widow does not have upon her vleiting card "Mrs. Alice Brown " but when she is the widow of the oldest BOD, simply "Mrs. Brown," and when the widow of a younger son, "Mra. Norfolk Brown," using her maiden name and ber mar- riad one, to that exactly who she'is may be conveyed to her friends. No anawer is required to a wedding invi» tatlon. 'The preferred formula(whlch is the one sent out by Mies Latter) is taken irom the English, because it says all that is necessary in the simp, lest way. It reads "Mr. and Mrs. Highest of an in Leavening Fowet.—Latest U. S. GovH Report Baking Powder James Howard request the pleasure of your'presence at the marriage of their daughter Elinor with Mr. Charles Thompson on Wednesday, June 12, at 12 o'clock, at St. Paul's, and afterwards at 1000 Fifth avenue." No hour la named for the reception, but the guests, understand that they go direct from the church to the house. The parents of the bride stand at the drawing room door and receive the guests, but the bride and bridegroom are not with them, but instead further on In the room, where they are ready to receive congratulations. Later on they lead the way into the dining room to the breakfast, or luncheon, which, ever may'be served. There is 10 for. malltv as to entering the dining room after the bridal party, and ladies may go without gentlemen as escorts, for the number of ladies generally out. cumbers that of men at weddings. AS TO VISITS tfteen minutes is quite long enough for a formal one, and the proper hours are counted as between three and six. The most formal ones being between four and and five, while one's intimates drop io between five and six. Well-bred people do not write "E. S. V. P." on a dinner Invitation nowa. days as one's friends are supposed to know that such an Invitation requires an answer, and the letters suggest giving a lesslon in politeness. It is very bad form for a man who meets either a married lady or an unmarried one at a tea to presume to call on either without a suggestion that he would be welcome. And by the bye, when Mr. Algernon Smith is old enough to pay a formal visit he is quite old enough to take care of his own hat and coat, and to retain his Immaculate gloves. And also by the bye (although Boston objects to this), in entering a theatre, a lady precede* a gentlemen down the aisle, with the usher ahead of her. This method is preferred because, if the gentleman were ahead be could not protect the lady from, being pushed against, aud It makes It some what easier for her to take the inner seat and leave the outer one for ber escort •: • JtXVBVE ANDCPLIASCBE. I think that it all they asked me. I bell o?e I have done my duty as solemnly as I know how. and I hope ] won't bring on my innocent head the judgment of the writers on etiquette who do know euch an awful lot. Q hey always say, as if it was the easiest thing In the wond; '-Be at onco reserved acd yet pleasant." It sounds very easy. In real life it Is very difficult. Then, too, there are situations where it might be possible, and others where it mightn't I can 1m aglne a combination of resorvlty and pleasantry when you have the tooth ache, and know the dentist is going to take It away very goon. That is, when there is hope in the future; but I can't imagine a combination of reserve and pleasure at an auction. You want to get something, and four other women want it just as much as you do. You said a dollar, and that hateful woman said a dollar ten. And then a woman who dyes ber hair said a dollar fifteen: and then you said a dollar and a quarter and tried to look pleasant; and then the other woman said a dollar and fifty cents, and you try to look reserved, and only succeed in achieving an expression of crossness. The auctioneer remembers your name and speaks to you and you feel pleased but not reserved, because you laugh. I •tell you It Is a wise auctioneer who finds out the names of the diflfarent women. Women love to be thought of importance. They like to have Mr. French call out, when he is selling a Corot. and he knows an awful lot about pictures: "Now, Mrs. Calvert, you are a judge of gcod work, you are not going to see this beautiful picture go for a mere song." And Mrs. Cal- vort feels that she is appreciated and bids on the picture; and, suddenly, Ibe agreeable auctioneer says: "Why, Mrs. Tompklns, I didn't Bee you before, I don't pretend to teach you anything about this picture. You have forgotten more about art than I ever knew. I'll juat ask you to look at it." And Mrs. Tompklns raises the bid, and so the tempter goes on, and lovely woman tries to be- reserved and squanders her money. I always think, when I go to an auction, and I go often, that the only safety for me lies in Mr. French not seeing me; for if he does I am gone. And I am one in a hundred who knows that pleasure is a certainty, while reserve is a positive doubt. Tnen the etiquette book says: 1 NEVER DISCDSS PERSONALITIES. Speak of things, not peop e." Well, your bosom friend calls, and you start china as » discussion. I mean china cups, net the Chinese war. Eihelinda pays, "Did you ever see such mean china 8§ Mrs. Parvenu bad on her table the other day?" And you up. tilt your nose as if you smelt someihing not quite nice, and answer: "She is a horrid thing, anyhow. I am sur prised that you went to her house." And Eihelinda says: "Oh, she says euch funny things. You know her daughter is going to marry an EngHsh- man. They made their money In the retail way in Chicago, I think. Well, a society reporter went to interview Mrs. Parvenu about the wedding, and she came down stairg in her wrapper, and, think of it, dearest, she eaid to him, 'I hope you will excise my appearance, but I thought I had better pot keep you waiting, and to I ju«t came down in my nom de plume." Then I told Ethelinda, forgetting 'all about the chin.: "lean give you a better one than that. The daughter was out on the veranda one eight, and some one said to her mother, 'Mrs. Parvenu, you ought to tell Miss Mary to come in; she has no wrap on, and there is a strong draught out there and she looks very delictte.' Mrs. Parvenu replied, 'On, no, you are very much mistaken: Mary is the most intelligent girl I ever met." "Well," said Ethelinda. "there is a etory about the father that I think is worse. The daughter INTRODUCED MB. \T. D. HOYTELLS to her father, saying: "Father, this is Mr. Howells, the great writer." Old Parvenue grabbed him- by the hand, with this greeting: "Glad to meet you, sir, and if ever at any time you want an account of anything that is going on in this house, come straight to me and Til tell you everything and give you a bill of fare.' "But," added Ethelinda, ' 'bad as toil was, there li something worse. • They have a younger daughter who is anobblnh beyond expression. A gentlewoman, who li forced to earn ber living;,!* her day gorerneeg. The other morning tail inlp laid: 'I had guch a good time last night' aad then proceeded to tell where ghe had been and wLat sho had seen. The lady said: -I had a pleasant time, too.' 15A.B PLEADS GDH.TV. " -Where were you.' asked M!ss Snob Parvenu. •• 'I was at the Georgetown Assem. bly,' answered the lady, and by.the* bye," added Ethelinda, "this Is the most exclusive affiiir in Washington. 11 -Oh,' said this impudent girl, -I thought they only bad nice people there.' "My dear," added Ethelinda, "that young woman needg the services of the professional spanker." ••Yes,"said I, "one can forglTe ignorance, but ooe can't forgive that sort of thing " "No," said Ethellnda, blood will tell." And then we looked at each other and realized that we hadn't lived up to the book of. etiquette; that we had been talking about people and not things. And If ever there were two- guilty wretches, they were Ethelinda and her friend BAB.
