Manners are truly the reflex of the mind.

Declining an invitation to so important
a function as a ccremojlous dinner, a
reason, and a fcood reasm, must be given,
otherwise 3 oar hostess may welt consider
herself Ill-treated. Address your reply
In any case to Mrs. Blake, and, if possi
ble, plainly state the reason for declin
ing, with a well-expressed and real re
gret. For example: "Mr. and Mrs. Francis
Hopkins Uiooke regret extremely that a
previous euagement for Mrs. James Ed

IMPORTANCE OF FORMAL DINNERS.
As few people make engagements except
for some great ball or fcto for more than
three weeki lu advance, you arc nut apt to
receive many regrets. You must carerully

be agreeable to the other and that each be
recognized as remarknblo for something

scat tliem os faranirt as possible, each one
being a star. Ttsfe is usually a heavy
weight at every dinner, and too frequently
there is evidently a 'jnan who has come
to cat. I have struggled 'with both, times
without number; nave more courage and
leave them off the list of invitees. No w that
we have reached the dining room in safety
see how beautiful we have made the hospit
able board, with snowiest of linen, waxen
candles or rose-shaded lamps, Bllver, glass
and flowers. The temperature is delicious
ly cool; tho light is adjusted so it Is thrown
on the table, not in the guests eyes.
AT THE TABLE.
The ladles belnng seated, the gentlemen
follow, and during the serving of the
ovstenTor clams the. ladles have an oppor
tunity of removing gloves, which are never
taken off before djnner, and of placing
them with their fans in their laps. Vour
guests will all place their bread on the left
hand, and alter unfolding tbeir napkins
place them in their laps. Gentlemen do
not tuck their napkins In their waist
coats, no matter how convenient they may
find such an arrangement. It Is custom
ary to have menu cards distributed about
the table, but it is not de rigeur, and I
have attended many very elaborate din
ners where the eou was not la evidence;
The menu card is advisable and saves con
fusion, besides being very decorative if
.Your servants should be properly dressed.
If you number a butler among them he will
wear plain erening dress. If the parlor
maid assists she should wear tie and apron,
white cap, not a bonne's cap, with bo w of
black velvet. Gentlemen's servants do
not cover their hands with white cotton
Bloven to wnlt upon the guests: they use
soap and water Instead and arc required
to take scrupulous en re of their hands and
finger nails. It is well also to make a rule
that the servants who approach the dinner
table are on no account to indulge in a
taste for onions or garlic. Each guest
Jias a "cover" laid; tills word signifies
the cloth, plate, knife, fork, spoons, etc.,
at each place.
A "cover" consists of a small silver fork
for clams or oysters, a talespoon for soup,
a silver fish fork, three large forks and
two knives, a glass for sherry, one for
white wine, one for claret, one for cham
pagne, and so on for any wines that
may be drunk; the table napkin Squarely
folded (ornamental folding and creasing is
not in good taste) is placed between the
knives and forks, the bit of bread fur each
guest is laid upon the folded napkin. Cutter
is never offered at dinner. It Is Incorrect
to placn the knives and forks lengthway
of the table or to attempt any new arrange
ment of them straight up and down they
must b: placed knives on tho right, forks
on the left of the napkin. Extra knives and
forks willlic required bofiircthedinncrlscon
cluded, but the number abovo mentioned
is sufficient to begin with. It Is considered
vulgar to fupplyt your guests with an
arsenal In the way of weapons.
One man servant, it capable and well
Iralned, should wait npon from four to fix
persons carefully dnd'irfectly. Your serv
ants must, of course; wear noiseless shoes
nothing is more dreadful than creaking
footsteps. A good servant is deft and makes
no blunders nerer -lets anything fall, never
spills a drop of wine or lets It trickle,
never breathes laboriously or coughs, and
dcposllB or remores'Vnivcs, forks, glasses,
A dining-room floor should always be
carpeted to deaden the nule ns nothing
is so distracting ns the noise of footsteps,
clintr. and in case of an accident the
confusion is a hundred fold augmented by
the rattle on a wxd floor. Take care also
that the temperature of your dining-room
is right, neither too warm nor too cold.
Of course neither Mr. Bur Mrs. Gnrdner
will speak to a servant during dinner.
Oysters or c In nil are eaten without re
course to bread which is always broken,
never cut, and never crumbled Into soup
or sauce. Houp is taken from the side of
the spoon which is filled by drawing It
up from the edge of the soup plate op
posite you it is vulgar lo fill it Willi the
movement toward you.
Soup plates are never to be tilted. AU
vegetables are eaten with the fork and a
knife lfc only used to cut such food ns a fork
win not break. Olives and hors d' ocuvres
gcnerallj may be taken with the fingers,
leaves of artichokes also. Wine glasses
are held by the stem. Ice cream Is eaten
with a fork, indeed. It Is considered good
form to cat anything you are able conve
niently to convey to your mouth with a
fork lu preference to a spooq, which Is al
ways, as English authority says, "more
or lets n smeary thing."

The stiffened indentation thus remains
the exact shape of a dimple, and a little
face powder cacfully 3uted over the ar

the varnish and glue compound. Borne
care must be observed in smiling too sud

with ordinary usage It will retain lis
pretty shape, a whole evening, If not
longer. The "Simple process Is applicable"
to Uiose whose faces' comprlsea soft, vel

GIBSON'S AMERICAN GIRL
It Is More Beautiful Than the
Caricature He Started With.
What the Young Artist Who In to
Mnrry u Virginia Belle Is Tlan-"
ning. Wben UU TVrUt Mends.
Xne many admirers of the artist, Mr.
Charles Dana Gibson, who broke his
right wrist in an accident while out
driving near Bicbraond last week, will
be anxious as to what effect the accident
may have on his future work.
Mr. Gibson Is the most popular pen and
ink artist In the country and his work has
made him quite wealthy; bat Mr. Gibson's
work to-day does not compare to bis work
of five years ago, when he gave more
attention to detail and tho general ex
cellence of the picture rather than the
lie Is an Impressionist and he has made
himself the fad. This fad is rapidly fin
ing his purse, too, but as fads are as
transient as tbey are Intense, it is an open
question whether his wort..wllI outlive
lie now furnishes us pen-and-ink sugges
tions, and our imaginations must supply
The pictures are always full of action,
and he has made a decided change for the
better In varying his models and giving us
a prettier American girl than former! r.
The early Gibson girl was a lean, lank
and bony creation, square-Jawed and
severe. She had an intellectual face, but
cynical and worldly. The New York
critics are beginning to question Mr.
Gibson's extremely broad style, and if
criticisms have any weight with a young
man of his ability we may hope to see the
American girl plump, pretty, fresh
nnd active an appropriate interpreta
tion of her American Independence and
Mr. R. Le Grande Johnston has been rest
ing all cummer, but is now at Fort Foot,
Md., for a few weeks, painting his pictures
on larger mahogany panels. These panels
were a present to Mr. Johnston from a
friend tnd are very much prized by artists
generally, who prefer tbcm to canvas or any
other material as a body for color.
Mr. Johnston always paints in tho very
heart of nature, and every one knows his
effects of atmosphere and trees, and his
occasional bunch of lazy sheep in the fore
ground. Mrs. Johnston has rcce-iily-finished a
portrait of her brother, which shows a
very strong handling and an excellent
likeness. Her home Is one of the dearest
and quaintest little homes that an artist
could wish lor, which Is filled with many
rare and Interesting collections of armor
and bric-a-brac that the artist has picLed
up in his travels through Europe and the

Something About Moonshine.
The astronomer royal for Scotland says
that when the moon is halt full Its brillian
cy is not-nearly one-half as great as when
it is quite full. He attributes the bright
ness of the full moon and the lack of bright
ness In Uie half moon to the variations In
the reflected sunshine which are due to the
ruggedness of Uie moon's surface. The
high peaks and Immense chasms on the
moon's surface are constantly at cross
purpose In Uielr mode of reflecUng light.
The bright streaks which the telescope
proves to emanate from the craters and
chasms are largely Invisible under cross
light, but are bttlil.-ir.tly illuminated when
Uie sun shines full upoullicm.
