The very newest nightdress Is
slit up the left side from tho hem
almost to tho knee, the open
ing being edged or softened by a little
frilling of the lnce which figures
again on the very low-cut neck and
the short sleeves.
But really the said slit is not as
noticeable as you might imagine, for
the reason that the nightdress itself
Is made of the faintest flesh-pink
ninon and Is of such a flimsy trans
parency that it is hardly visible to
the naked eye!
However, the fact remains that the
fashion for the slit skirt has now

sense of the word reached its limits!
Then there Is another new style
and sensation in the way of the robe
dc null really the merely ordinary
term of "nightdress" Is hardly ap
plicable to such an exquisite and
ethereal affair!
Tiir; winior season firings a
host of social duties which
must bo fulfilled if one would
keep up one's reputation for polite
ness and keep in touch with friends
and acquaintances. It may be a. duty
to entertain a little In return for
hospitalities. It is always a duty to
bo prompt In (replying to invita
tions. The rocognition of the civili
ties of otlierB is one of tho funda
mentals of good manners.
Invitations need to be sent out
well In advance in ordor to securo
guests in the whirl of the season;
three or four weekB in advance for
formnl dinners and at least two
weeks ahead even for very informal
The formal caTd of invitation is
used by persons who entertain fre
quently. It is engraved In script,
with open spaces where tho name of
a. guest, tho date, hour and tho
words "at dinner" are written.
For a dinner or any evening en
tertainment the names of host and
hostess appear on an invitation. For
day occasions, except weddings, the
name .of tho hostess alone is usod.
An engraved card for evening bears
the words:

There may be a lino written In a
lower corner, "To go afterward to

So, altogether, the answer
to the riddle of "When is a

truly be "When It is ninon for then

caily. and the newest, and most elu

A typical pair of combinations in
thia particular fabric is such u light
burden that only two long and nar
row shoulder-straps of satin ribbon
are needed for Its upholding. In fact,
anything else is rarely used now, as
chemises or combinations, whoso fab
ric was continued over the shoulders
and there finished off in the once or
dinary and universal way with lace
edgings and ribbon threadlngs, would
be unsightly and impossible as worn
with and clearly visible through the
seamless, semi-transparent curves o
the fashionable corsage.
For the rest, this particular and
pretty net garment is arranged with
alternating groups of graduated tucks
and tapering insertion of lace and
hand-embroidered sprays of flowers,
the same decoratively combined de
sign being repeated on the short and
yarrow legs, and the whole thing be
ing so lovely that It will certainly be
worn over the corsets and an inner
vest, and so do the duty of camisole
and petticoat or knickera as well.
For three garments one of these
being the corset represent the maxi
mum of underwear which the woman
who wants lo be fashionable and
slender will consent to don this sen
son. Wherefore the sale for c'icmise
and knicker sets has come to a sud
den and almost complete end. so far,
at. any rate, as the lav n and cambric
garments are concerned.

Although the full name of a hos-
tess is given by way of a distinc
tive understanding, the full name of
a guest is not written unless there
may be some reason for making a
clear Indication for whom the Invi
tation is Intended. The envelope
containing an Invitation should
haye the full name and street ad
dress. Informal invitations are notes in
the first person and are briefly ex
pressed. Dear Mra. JQlank:
Will you and Mr. Blank dine
with us informally on Friday
evening, January the second, and
go to the play?
Your6 sincerely,
Care in observing tho form of an
invitation should enable the recipient
to reply correctly, yet many persons
are In doubt what to do. It must, be
borne In mind that the same for
mula is used for an nnswer as that
which is embodied in the invitation.
If In the third person, It is answered
in that form; if in tho first person,
that formula is required.
While the rules of etiquette govern
the form and may ho learned, it must
be always remembered Uiat courtesy
and consideration for others are
principles which underlie social cus
toms. There should he no delay in
replying to an invitation which re
quests tho pleasure of ono's com
pany. To wait to send an answer on
the chance of receiving a more de
sirable Invitation In tho interval ia
extromoly discourteous and is a
selfish disregard of the convenience
of the hostess, who wishes to know
whom she may expect Although the
soclr.l world takes rciuaals as a mat
ter of course and fills up the gaps,
a hostess wishes to have time to find
eligible substitutes and not be com
pelled to have an ill-assorted collec
tion of guests. Acceptances or re
grets, therefore, should be sent with
in twenty-four hours after receiving
invitations to dinners, luncheons or
card parties.

a greater compliment than Is con
