that were kept constantly filled with a de

DIPL.OMA.TS ARE MACHINES.
Little Expected of Them Than to Tie
Their Cravats Properly.
Edmund About has deflned diplomacy as
the "art of tying one's cravat" a definition
which would seemingly place most American
representatives abroad outside the pale. Only
the new-fledged diplomat ever thinks of
thinking for himself or of doing anything
upon his own responsibility. The old hand
never takes step without express Instructions
from his government, which Is jealous of In
terference with its conduct of affairs, regard
ing as its most satisfactory agents those who
act as mere machines, executing dextero usly
the orders telegraphed or. written to them.
Thus ministers and ambassadors are at lib
erty to engage themselves chiefly with the
elaboration of matters of etiquette, which ai e
of greater importance to-day than ever before,
because the ocean greyhound and the electric
cable have made all the nations next door
neighbors. These envoys find little more ex
pected of them than to pay call6, attend din
ners, and wear their clothes properly; but woe
be to him who pays his calls wrong or ties his
cravat crooked 1 Ho will be declared a per

THE ETIQUETTE OF MOURNING.
Some of the Latest Regulations in Good
Here are some of the latest regulations
aL'Auglalse: Mourning for a parent is worn
for twelve months, six months with crupe,
six months black without crepe, then slight
mourning, such aB gray or black and white, is
worn for a few months longer. The same
rules appply to parents' mourning for children.
For quite an Infant mourning is not worn
more than three months. For brothers and
sisters mourning, is usually worn for the same
period as for apparent, though some persons
consider six mouths a sufficient length of time.
In each case the exclusion from society is for
two months, though of course In this, as on
many other points, one must be guided by per
sonal inclination and circumstances. For a
grandparent,f rom six to nine months is the time
mourning is generally worn, half the period
with crepe, the latter half without. The time
of seclusion from society is from three weeks
to a month. For an uncle, aunt, or cousin,
nephews, and nieces, mourning Is worn for
three months, generally without crepe, and
few persons go Into society for a month. For
more distant relatives mourning is only worn
for a month, and.seclusion from society Is not
necessary. Mourning for a step-mother would
be regulatcd'by the relations existing between
her and her husband's children; It is usual.
however, to wear mourning for a year as lor a
parent. A wife would wear mourning for her
husband's relations as she would for her
own. Jet ornaments are the only jew
elry worn In mourning. Jet Is dull
for very deep, and bright for sllghtpr
mourning. Mourning Is generally given
to servants on the death of a member of a
family, such as master, mistress, or child. Me
morial cards are quite out of date. Friends
of a bereaved family usually leave cards with
"To inquire" written on one corner; return
cards, with "Thanks for kind Inquiry and
sympathy," are sent after the funeral. When
persons in mourning desire to enter again into
society they leave cards on their friends, who
return the cards by a visit. In the matter of
mourning paper and envelopes 6ome new
styles of these have recently been Introduced,
but by the best people there are few depar
tures maue irom tne long-acceptea border,
with address, monogram, or crest In black.
Extremely wide borders are considered bad
form even for deepest mourning. The black
borders of visiting cards, like the edges of
note paper, vary In depth according to tne de
greo of relationship and the time mourning
has been worn.
The grand opening of this popular resort for
the season of 1891 will take place Saturday,
June 13. Buildings remodeled. Grounds
beautified and additional atractlons intro

LIKE TO BE HUMBUGGED.
WhnL a Woman Physician Say's About the
, "Wants of Patients.
Now York'Evenlng Sun.
A woman physician In the city told a most
remarkable thing a day or two ago. "It takes
a deal of conscientiousness to keep a physician
from becoming a quack," she said. "It's
such an easy thing to quack when you, know
your patient wants you to, and that -because
the patient wants it, It would perhaps be
beneficial in the end. By quacking I mean
resorting to clap-trap and unscientific methods,
such as the faith-cure and Its like. No one
but a physician has any idea how great-"a
demand there is for this among Intelligent
"They don't want the honest, straight
forward exhibition of the action of drugs qn j
the body. They want a mystery about it,'
an exhibition of healing as a divine force
something that appeals to the Imagination.
And because It Is a subject for the imaglna-
finn t.lin domntifl onmPB tinf: frnm fhr (minrimtli
and unthinking, but from the most intelligent
and best-informed people.
"I have known some of the most logical
and clear-headed people In this city to offer
such a resistance to scientific rational meas
sures in medical treatment and insist so
strongly upon 6ome Illegitimate and Inade
quate course, as to put the honest physi
cian's patience to Its lastrcsott.
'It Isn't quite that they like to bo hum
bugged. They don't kuow It by that,
though the physician does. They want some
thing for the Imagination to work on. And
that's the stronghold of the quack practi
tioner. It takes an honest man or woman
to practice medicine honestly."
