THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1912.
3 J f Untercst J Zo llfflomcn On no one point of etiquette is is there more debate mul uncertain ty lliiin in tlio use of calling-cards. The reason for this may he found in the fact that, after all, their ser vice is not one point of etiquette, hut several. Many are the details connected with leaving and sending cards, and almost numlierless are the occasions on which they are sent. In reasons for congratulation, fur condolence, for inauir.v. in the place of calls, ns acknowledgment of courtesies, as invitation, as an nouncement, in practically every exigency of life the card is calied into Bervice. The etiquette of cards should he known hy everyone who makes any claim to social life. STYLE OF CARD The card itself is the first item to be considered. It should always he plain white cardhoard. Its simpli city marks its good taste. The let tering should he marked hy the same severity. The inscription must lie engraved, as a matter of course. Printing is absolutely out of place; better than that is a plain card in scribed simply with your name in your own handwriting. The letter ing may be block, script, or Old English in plain black. A married woman should have her cards inscribed with her married name: Mrs. John P. Jones, or Mrs. John Parker Jones, not Mrs. J. Parker Jones, and never Mrs. Mary Allen Jones. Even when she is a widow, it is permissible and preferable that she should preserve her husband's name on her calling cards. The cards of an unmarried woman should be written. Miss Jones, if she is the eldest daughter. The young er daughter writes her name Miss ' Mary Elizabeth Jones. Never is a nickname, or a contraction to be used. When a young girl is in her first season, and is supposed to be mak ing all her calls with her mother her name is often engraved under that of her mother on a larger card than she would use by herself. Oc casionally we see the husband's and wife's name encraveu on ' the same card. Usuallv th married man's card is the same size as that of the bach elor. and in both cases the style of inscription is the same: Mr. Ar thur Bowles Wilson, or Mr.. Arthur B. Wilson, or, if he prefers, Mr. A. B. Wilson. The title is never omit ted with the man any more than with the woman. SHORT CALLS BEST. Cards naturally BUggest calls, and these vary in character from the formal call of fashion to the easy call of friendship. For the first or formal call the usual time permitted is not more than fifteen minutes, and often even this is cut short; not only at first calls, but also at after noons at home. Friendly calls, be tween persons who know and enjoy one another, need have no limit be yond the convenience of the caller and the hostess. In these 'days, when we have brought specialization even into our social functions, the old-fashioned way of dropping in for a chance call has rather fallen into disuse- Peo ple are too busy to stay at home every afternoon to receive their friends, or to make calls on the chance of finding that those they seek are not at home. From this state of affairs has come the custom of remaining in one afternoon a week, or two a month, and thus feeling free to say "Not at home," or "Not receiving" on other days. No caller has a right to feel ag grieved if she is met by this message when she calls on a day that is not the regular "At Home" day of her friend. When she calls on the "At Home" day, it is well to recollect that an overlong call is likely to prove embarrassing. Certain Btated calls must be mad by anyone who moves in society at II. J he call at least once a year upon those on your calling list; the call after having been entertained at dinner, or luncheon, or at an evening entertainment; the call of congratulation after a marriage, or a birth; the call of condolence upon those in sorrow ; the call of inquiry at the house of illness; the call upon a stranger who has leen introduced to. you by a friend; the return call, when a first call has been made up- on you; the can 01 a new arrival upon an old resident, who was away when the newcomer settled in the town, but who returned later on none of these can be evaded. A first call should be returned within a week, or at longest a fortnight; dinner call, or, in fact, any others of those named, should be paid promptly. If two women called together, it is the elder of the two who makes the signal for departure by rising or giving a significant glance to her companion. FORMAL CALL8 the ether for the master of the muse. It there arc daughters re ceiving, a card is lelt lor each one rom lH)th husband and wife; if there are other men in the family, the husband's cards are left, one for each man. A woman caner never leaves a card for a man, as a matter f course. All this calls for a great expenditure of cardlxiard, but it is the decree of Fashion. The unmarried woman calling upon a friend lefcves but one card, unless there are other women in the household, in which case she leaves one apiece. A married woman call- ng upon a single woman leaves her own card and that of her husband or son. It is permitted to leave cards for a son or brother if circum stances render it absolutely out of the question for these men to dis charge their own social obligations, but as a rule it is taken for granted that unmarried men should pay their own calls, no matter what measure of indulgence in this res pect is extended to married men. FROM NEW YORK FILES THE RACE HORSE. August Belmont and The been discussing Mr. Jockey Club have how to make racing the sport it used to be. They advocate stricter regulation of betting and other changes. That a lot of people rule racing out entirely because of the gambling in it doesn't seem to in still in some of us the liking for a good horse race. We even admit that we like it infinitely better when we have a little money on it. We do not take kindly to the no tion that to race. a horse is wicked. How about it? Moderation is the answer, so it Beeins to me. uur old friend moderation I Moderation for everylxxly except the horse 1 He can go as far as he likes. THE LBTTER8 OF CHE8TERFIELD. Happening to pick up a volume of the Chesterfield letters lately, I came upon this typical observation : Air, address, manner and graces are of such infinite advantage to whoever, has them that I tremble for fear I shall not find you pos sessed of them." "Drivel 1'' said I, throwing the book aside, and then thought better of it and said: "Drivel nothing!" Instead of drivel it's the truth! "The Letters of Chesterfield" are irritating only localise they are so frankly snobbish. And even ad mitting and detesting their snob bery, it would do a lot of people good to read them.' Somewhat to my surprise, I learn that a lot of people are! This book of etiquette is a very steady seller-. One of the best outside of fiction even at this late day. Everybody getting all mannered up! MEN . Mr. Bok's publication would have us believe that men like "the of feminine dressing. Which is al very well for very young ladies, but which looks like the devil if I may say so on grown women. Doubt less "the white muslin and blue riblwn style" is supposed to mean simplicity. And possibly men, as a sex, may be said to prefer the simple to the elaborate. But do men often know juat why they like a woman's dress, or do not like it? I doubt it! Men are the salt of the earth. I would even go so far as to say that without them the world could not continue! But there are some things they do not know. They know precious little about the way a woman dresses. A 8TRADIVARI VIOLIN. I've heard of people who prized their violins, but I never saw any one in the actual act of prizing un til one evening lately. A young violinist came a-calling on some friends of mine and brought his Stradivari with him. He never leaves it alone. It was done up in several little nightgowns, white hags with ribbons at the top. "And did it really cost 89,000?" "It did,'' said he. "All the perfect Stradi vari violins are registered. Mine is one of them. Do you wonder that I alwavs take it with me?'' I never saw a woman more tender! with a baby than was this violinist with his violin. C. II. COOKE, President. Corrkct Attest: I).

It is hardly worth while to say that woman does not carry her card in and present it to the hostess, or hand it to the hostess, should the latter happen to open the front door for her. In that case the call er should lay her card on the table inside of the door; or, if there is none there, she may leave it on table in the drawing-room. When a servant opens the door she usually has in readiness a tray on which the caller may lay her card. If, however, the function is one at which the servant announces the visitor's name, the cards may l dropped into the salver, or dish which will be on the hall table to receive them. If the caller is married woman calling upon anotl er married woman, she leaves one of her own cards and two of he husband's one for the hostess, andwhiVe muslin and blue ribbon style' No. 5D94.
