Notice to Correspondents,
-Lest You Forget"
The following rules were laid
down as a guide for young men
in a certain town in , where
the usages of polite society were
First: If you are invited to a
party or dance at the home of
Mrs. Blank, ascertain the names
of the young ladies who are ex
pected, and ask the pleasure of
accompanying one of them, or
else stay at home yourself.
Second: Having been enter
tained, return and pay your party
Third: If there are young la
dies visiting in your town and
you have been asked to call, do
so, and further extend any cour
tesy in your power to make their
' stay a pleasant one.
Fourth: When walking or driv
ing with a young lady leave your
cigar or pipe at home, and cer
tainly when you take herjnto an
ice cream parlor.
Fifth: Don't speak of having
a "date" with any lady. Dates
are for fairs, horse shows, selling
Last, and worst of all, to you,
young ladies, stop the vulgar cus
tom of having you names laid
around on counters and show
cases, while the young men make
"bids" on your company to the
dance, for while you allow such
familiarity you lessen the dignity
of womanhood, and forfeit our
right to the reverence which is
due you from the opposite sex.
