Little Point* of Etiquette That Should Be
Many of us who pride oursolvos on our
good-brooding aro singularly blind as to
what is duo to friends who are visiting
peoplo unknown to us. or who aro en?
tertaining guosts whom we havo nover
mot. Nor arp wo more assured as to
somo of tho points of otiquetto toward
our own guests and to our own hosts
when wo make an occasional flitting
It is useless to docry otiquetto by sav?
ing that the host manners in all cases
aro thoso which hurt no ono. This is
truo as a general law, hut there always
aro some points which loavo no room for
experiments as to what will hurt an- j
other, and which yet may ho settled
onco for all by a fow rules.
If you have an acquaintance who is
ontortaining friends whom sho wishes
you to meet, it is your duty to call
promptly, and if possiblo offer somo hos?
pitality to both guests and hosts.
If tho position is roversod, and your
friend is visiting peoplo unknown to
you, nover go to soo your friond with?
out leaving a card for tho hostess. If
you give any entertainment for tho
friond, bo vory suro to invite her hosts
also. Itdoos not follow that your invita?
tion will bo accepted, but if it is, the
hostess must bo treated as the guest of
honor and shown every deference. If,
for instance, tho entertainment is a
luncheon for young ladies, sho may bo
asked to tako tho seat at tho end of tho
table opposite to your own.
If the mutual friend is your guest, yon
may bo sure that, if she is a woman of
good-breeding, she. in turn, will accept
no invitation which does not includo j
you, although you may think best to '
decline it and insist upon her tf;>ing !
alone. Nor will sho rocoivo visitors
without asking you to join thctn in tho i
parlor, should her friends bo rude j
enough to havo sent you no cards. |
Here, too, you may excuse yoursolf, or
at most, join them with such delay as to
give them a short interview alone.
These same rules hold good for you
whon you aro tho truest, before you go
to mako tho visit, send word to your
frionds whoro and with whom you aro
to stay, so that there may bo no idea
that you are in a boarding-house, and
therefore mistress of your timo and sur?
roundings. This constant doferenco to
your hostess should lead you to order
all letters and packages to bo addressed
to her caro.
A8 to the disposal of your timo, whon
you aro visiting, no otiquetto requires
you to accept all the plans of your
hostess, if you fool unable to do so; but
caro is nooded to show that refusal
means lack of strength, not lank of in?
terest and inclination. With a little
tact on both sides, you will havo many
hours for your own.
Indeod, a skilful hostess will mauago
to Bocuro you this privilege, and not
mako tho mistake ol working too hard
to amuse you, and so absorb evory mo?
ment of your visit into her idoa of what
is pleasure for you.
No greater complimont is possiblo
than tho quiot acceptance of your pres?
ence in tho intimacy of family lifo.?A.

WITH TAIL IN AIR.
The Slnln Tart of a Treu Is That Which
Yes, a treo is an underground oroa
turo, with its tail in the air. All its in?
telligence is in its roots. Think what
sagacity it shows in ita soarch after
food and drink! Somehow or other, tho
rootlets, which aro its tentacles, find
out that there is a brook at a moderate
distance from the trunk of tho tree, and
they make for it with all their might.
They lind overy crack in tho rucks j
where thoro aro a few grains of tho
nourishing substance they caro for, and
insinuate themselves into its deepest
recesses. Whon spring and summer
come, they lot their tails grow, and de?
light in whisking them about in tho
wind, or letting them bo whisked about
by it; for these tails aro poor passive
things, with very littlo will of their
own, and bond in whatever direction tho
wind chooses to mako thorn.
Tho leaves make a deal of noiso whis?
pering. I havo sometimes thought I
could understand them as they talked
with each other, and that thoy seemed
to think they made the wind as they
Wagged forward and back. Remember
what I say. The next timo you soo a
treo waving in the wind, recollect that
it is the tail of a great underground
many-armed, polypus-liko creature
which is as proud of its caudal append

peacock of his gorgeous expanse of
Do you think there is any thing so |
vory odd about this idea? Onco got it j

and other quadrupeds. Study them as ;

BEES AND ANTS.
Tholr TrnvHinR; Instinct Ono of tho Mar?

How insects, especially beos and ants,
find their way back homo is ono of tho
marvels of natural history. "My wifo
keope beos," says a Missouri farmer,
"and my littlo boy has a taste for
entomology, and is always making ex?
periments of one kind or another with
them and other insects. Ho has been
trying to find out how far away a beo
can bo taken and not got lost, but has
not yet succeeded. I live in tho coun?
try, fourteen milos from tho court house,
and during tho summer that boy has
been in town with me a dozen times,
and on each occasion ho brought somo
boes along in a little tin box. Ho col?
ored their wings with violot ink, so that
ho would know tho insects again, and
lot them go in the heart of tho city.
Tho ilrst timo he did it ho released six
bees at tho Biddlo Street Market, and 1
beliovo they got home beforo we did,
bocauso they woro all on hand attend?
ing to business tho next morning, just
as though they took a fourteon-milo
journey every day. Occasionally a bee
fails to come back, but in nearly every
instance thoy roturn in a few hours.
Onco he let livo, whoso wings had boon

o'clock in the morning, on tho cornor of

tor watched tho hive at homo. Ono ar?
rived, tired almost to death, and dropped
at the door of tho hive a littlo bofore

His experiments with a nest of large
black ants havo been equally satisfac?
tory, for some marked ants havo found
their way homo after being roleased
more than a mile distant from tho hol?
