McMLNNVILLE, - TENNESSEE.
! A Question of Manners.
There seems to boavaguo but opera
tive action in many social circles that it
is "bad form" to introduco to each
other persons who meet casually in the
parlor of a common friend. At least it
Is held that this ceremony is not to bo
performed without the consent of both
This belief is probably founded on the
social usages of older countries, as, for
example, Germany and France, where
introductions are not customary. But
there it is an unwritten law that stran
gers, meeting under tho roof of a com
mon fi iond, whother by invitation or ac
cident, shall greet each other as acquaint
ances, talk easily, and part with grace
ful civility. Tho hostess, by virtue of
her ollice, stand3 as tho social sponsor
of each for tho moment, and to hesitate
to speak to any one of her visitors is to
discredit her taste and judgment. 01
course tho continuance of tho acquaint
ance is a matter to be loft entirely to
the decision of the two persons con
cerned. In England, on the other hand, it has
been generally considered indecorous to
speak without a formal introduction,
which is usually offered only when the
hostess feels assured that tho acquaint
ance will prove a mutually agreeable
one. But this usage doubtless grew out
of the yory marked differences of caste,
which implied different social worlds.
AVith the new life of this century ; tho
vast influence of trade and commerce;
thenearncss of nationsf ormerly held alien
and foreign, and the attrition of their
ideas; the general interest in science
which takes hold of men and women of
all ranks and no rank ; the altered feel'
ing about women, which begins to make
tho suppressed sex not only significant
factors iu the economic sum, but
working, thinking, and Bhaping mcm
bejs of the social fabric ; and with the
changing fortunes of the time, which
puts immense wealth in new hands, and
linpoverfshcs tho heirs of old names and
ancient heritages with these subvert
ing conditions, we say, the rigid lines of
caste must yield or be broken. And
any American traveler of distinction
will doubtless have observed that in the
best English society introductions have
cither become much moro general, or
are regarded as unnecessary.
We, however, appear to have adopt,
cd tho English custom without the Eng
lish reason therefor, or hopo of advan
tage therein. And if we go on in our
present way, we bid fair to make our so
cial festivities as heavy as those of the
middle-class drawing-rooms of our kin
across the sea; for women are constitu
tionally timid, and usually fear to make
advance. To be conspicuous of being
less well dressed or less well placed in
tho social world than her neighbor is to
put an extinguisher often on the most
scintillant of her sex. If her acquaint
ance is sought, she will show herself
charming, but she will not seem to so
licit recognition, though the alternative
is a dreary silence and isolated state.
The hostess, at ease in her world, may
think this a foolish reticence. But since
shy or obscure women are afraid to
speak without authority, she. should
make it an invariable custom to intro
duco. The law is very simple. What
ever puts her guests most at ease is her
obvious duty. There is a certain social
law of centripetal force which may be
trusted to send the right atoms together
if tho artificial retrains are removed.
And it often happens that the richest
friendships of one's life ensue from
these chanco encounters, while, on
the other hand, if both parties
to the occasion feel, like Slender,
that "if there be no great love
at tho beginning, yet Heaven may de
crease it on better acquaintance," a
civil bow on meeting is tho only future
reetignition which courtesy requires.
1'erhaps the form of introduction
might be made more helpful than it is.
There are certain fixed rules, of course,
based on sufficient reason, which every
body is suppo-ed to understand and ob
serve "It is proper, for example, al
ways to introduce a gentleman to a
lady, a younger woman to an elder, a
stranger or a new-comer to tho longer
resident. But beyond this the phrase
and tone employed might convey an as
surance of a rewarding acquaintance,
or simply imply a courtesy of tho mo
ment. Suppose, for instance, tho host
ess were to say, "Mrs. Blank, I am so
glad of this opportunity to introduce
to you Mrs. Dash," or. "It is such
a pleasuro to introduce two poo
plo who ought to know each
other," or any other agreeably uncon
ventional sentence, there is a ground of
liking and a sense of familiarity estab
lished at once. If, on the other hand,
she sees that there is not likely to be
any common interast between the two
strangers, the usual form, "Mrs. Blank,
pray allow me to present Mrs. Dash to
you," merely means, "Now you two
women, who happen to stand together,
m:iy leave off your futile attempts to
look unconscious of each other's exist
ence, and become as agreeable to each
other as your limitations will allow." A
woman must be ponderous indeed who
can not find a few words of graceful
commonplace to bostow on her new ac
quaintance, or, having offered them,
who can not easily and inoffensively
elide out of the conversation.
But if it be the duty of tho hostess to
introduce, it is not less plainly tho duty
of her guests to speak to ench other
without her intervention. The law of
kindness, which precedes and underlies
the code of otiouette, commands them
to assist her in her effort to give their
pleasure. "A lest's prosperity," says
the till-iierceirin? Shaksneare, "lios in
tho ear of him to hears it, never in the
toncue of him who utters it." And it is
cnuullv true that all social successes de
pend on the spirit of the guests far more
than uoti the skill of the hostess. She
is but one. Thcv are many. Schiller
complained that the gods . themselves
must tiirht in vain against stupidity, and
there is no stupidity moro hopeless than
that wtiieli makes a woman in society re
gard her own preference, prejudice, or
timidity as of more consequence than
tho pleasure of tho rest. Harper's Ba'
A VK.itY sad accident, resulting in the
de:ith of Elfridu Mary Catherine, the
only child of Prof. Frederick K. lloury,
of tho Yale Art School, occurred in New
Haven, Conn, l'rof. llniry loft his
homo to attend a Christ nun service.
Mrs. Houry had been ailing for some
time nnd had been using chloroform,
keeping the bottle in a closet. She fell
asleep in her chair, and the t-hil(, lack
ing only a month of being two years
old, crept to the closet and obtained the
bottle of chloroform, removing the cork
and inhaling the contents. When the
Professor returned to his home, l,js wisi
was yet asleep in her chair and the child
was dead on the Ibor.
The ponies are not an agricultural,
but a domestic, necessity. In Shetland,
as in parts of Ireland, every family do
pends for its supply of fuel on peat, and
as the peat is seldom found near at hand
on the shore where the houses stand,
but on the hill behind them thore is al
ways a hill in the rear in Shetland, ev
ery island consisting mainly of hill, with
a patch or two of "smooth" land in a
few snug nooks by tho shore and as it
often is at a distance of several steep
and stony miles, each house requires
several ponies, the number depending
on tho distance and the character of the
road. A family living "convenient"
to the peat may require only two peat
carriers, and another family may re
quire half a dozen. The material, after
it has been dug and dried in the usual
manner, is carried homo on the backs of
the ponies in baskets, called "cassies."
It is obvious that tho back which has to
perform this kind of service should be
broad and strong. The Shetland pony
is a striking example of development ;
for generations past he has been bred
and reared and trained with a uniformi
ty which could not havo been secured in
any other part of the United Kingdom.
Hence his physique and general char
acter, his hereditary instincts and intel
ligence, his small size, and his purity
and fixity of type. A pony belonging
to a breed which has had to pick its
zigzag way down a steep declivity dur
ing manv generations must be sure
footed. By tho same rule a pony whose
grooms and nlavmatos include a dozen
juveniles the children of the neighbor
hood, who roll about underneath nim or
upon his back must be gentle, and the
same pony, living on the scathold on air
sometimes rather than on herbago,must
be hardy. The pony of the Shetland
Isles is, in fact, the offspring of
circumstances. He is the pet of
the family, gentle as the Arab's steed
vnder similar training. Ho will follow
his friends in-doors like a dog, and lick
the platters or the children's faces. He
has no more kick in him than a cat, and
more bite than a puppy, ue is a
noble example of the complete suppres
sion of these vicious propensities that
some of his kind exhibit when they are
ill-treated, and of tho intelligence and
ood temper that may bo dovoloped in
orses by Kindness. There is no prece
dent for his running away, nor for his
becoming frightened or tired, even when
he has carried some stout laird from
Lerwick to his house, many Scotch miles
across the hills. He moves down the
rugged hillsides with admirable circum
spection, loaded pannier-fashion with
two heavy " cassies " of peat, picking
his way step by step, sometimes side
ways. In crossing boggy spots, where
the water is retained, ana a green car
pet of aquatic grass might deceive some
steeds and bring them headlong to grief
in the spongy trap, he carefully smells
the surface, and is thus enabled to cir
cumvent the danger. In the winter the
Shetland pony wears a -coat made of
felted hair, and specially suited for the
season. Ilia thick winter garment i
well adapted for protecting him against
the foes and damps of tho climate. It
is exceedingly warm and comfortable
fits close to the wearer's dapper form
and is not bad-looking when now. But
when the coat grows old toward spring,
at the season when the new ono should
appear, it becomes the shabbiest gar
ment of the kind that you often se. Its
very amplitude and the abundance of
the material render it the more con
spicuous, when it peels and hangs for
awhile ragged ana worn out, and then
falls bit by bit till the whole of it disap
pears. No horse looks at his best when

Potatoes in the raw state ought
never to bo given to any animal, with
the exception of sheep and geese. It is
said a goose will thrive better, and the
flesh will be more gratetuiiy flavored,
upon raw potatoes sliced than upon any
other article, while sheep and old sheep
particularly will more speedily thrive
on raw potatoes tnan on turnips;
but. especially in the beginning, raw
potatoes will scour cattle and horses,
and not unfrequently cause death, while
there is no danger from either boiled

Best Method of Preserving Posts.
Referring to the well-known meth
ods of preserving posts and poles which
are partly imbedded in tho earth, by
charring and coating with tar, the
Scientific American says these methods
are only effective when both are applied.
Should the poles bnly be charred, with
out the subsequent "treatment with tar,
the charred formation on the surface
would only act as an absorber of thf
moisture and, if anything hasten the de
cay. By applying a coating of tar, ac
cording to the same authority, the tar
would only form a casing about the
wood, nor could it penetrate to the
depths which the absorbing properties
of the charcoal surface would insure.
Wood that is exposed to the action of
water or let into the ground should first
be charred and then, before it has en
tirely cooled, be treated with tar until
the wood is thoroughly impregnated,
says the journal in question. The acetic
acid and oils contained in the tar are
evaporated by tho heat and only tha
resin left behind, which penetrates the
pores of the wood and forms an air-tight
and water-proof envelope. It is im
portant to impregnate the posts a little
above the line of exposure, for hcrp it is
that the action of decay affects the wood
first and where the break always occurs
when removed from the earth or strained

A Baltimore detective was singular
ly fortunate while he was out hunting for
a man who tried to wreck a freight
train recently by means of a cross-tie.
He dressed himself up as a tramp, and
as be was waiting around in that char
acter at night he was stopped by a gen
uine tramp with a revolver and a de
mand for his money. The detective
recognized in the tramp the criminal he
was looking lor, and, pretending to be
scared, he replied ! 44 Why, you don't
think I've got anything worth robbing
me of, do youP I've been on the road
for four months. I've come all the
way from Ohio, and I want to git to
New York. I ain't as well fixed as you,
though I'm on the same lay. I had a
revolver, but I had to sell it to git grub."
The tramp agreed to temporary partner
ship, and pocketed his pistol, and the
detective, seizing bis arm, presented his
pistol and handcuffed him.
Capt. John N. Bofingor is a steam
boat man and well known throughout
the South and West. Lately he has
been devoting much time to the history
of steamboats. He has found that
steamers, and especially Western river
steamers, whose name begin with 41M"
are very unlucky. If they have not been
sunk, burned or destroyed by boiler ex
plosions, their owners have met with
financial disaster through their means.
As proof of what he avers to be true, he
cites innumerable Magnolias, Missouris,
Magentas, Marys, Myrtles, Massachu
setts, MetropolLses, Marigolds, Missis
sippis, Mayflowers, Monitors, Monticel
los, and others with initial 4M," all of
which have come to grief.

in the house. 4,Very well," said Mrs.
Sprague, "have my carriage at the door
at 8 o'clock." At 8 the carriage drove
up. ,4Blanket the horses and wait until
I send further word." From 8 o'clock
of a chill winter evening until 2 o'clock
of a colder morning the coachman sat
with stiffening arms on his box, and
when the last guest had gone his orders
came to drive to the stable.
