The JProper Social
Mrs. Jefferson Davis, in
Tkere is an unwritten law of eti- |
quette for the foot, ankle and leg. It j
is of equal importance to men and wo- ;
men. It is unconsciously followed by
many men and women of even the j
plainest breeding. In fact, most of
these laws are so much a matter of
custom that the public is surprised
when they are violated. Neverthe- j
less, the etiquette of the ankle, foot
and leg is of speeial importance, as
ignoring it even in the slightest way
renders both men and women not on
ly conspicuous, but stamp them at
once as ill-bred.
For women the etiquette of the foot
applies not only to the general use of
the foot, but to the matter of dress
In walking, a woman should put her
foot on the ground firmly, but lightly.
She should never strike the heel first.
The knee should be kept stiff at the
moment of the contact of the foot with
She should wear, in cold weather,
neatly-fitted boots?always black.
The fashion of light-colored spats,
which seemed to be about to come in
to general use, has been discarded by
people of good taste, and black ones
are universally adopted.
In summer what are uniquely dub
bed "highlow shoes" are verygeneral
]y worn, as cooler and more comforta
ble than the closer boot.
Slippers are worn only in the house.
Satin or silk boots or shoes of the
same color and material as the frock
are always admissible, except in the
morning or on the street, and some
times are very elegant, but they are so
expensive that few except the wealthy
If the boots or shoes are buttoned,
it is indispensable that none of the
buttons should be lacking, and that
all should be buttoned. If the shoes
are laced the strings should be secure
, ly tied.
MUST HIDE FOOT.
No matter how small or how pretty
her foot may be, the well-bred woman
will never attract attention to it. When
seated at home or in public convey
ance she will see that her feet are en
tirely hidden by her skirt. She will
dress her feet in such a simple fash
ion that eveu if they were seen they
She will never wear slippers in the
street, or light-colored boots except in
a carriage, and then, of eourse, not
with a dark-colored gown.
Tan shoes must not be worn with a
visiting frock or a silk dinner gown,
aad above all her shoes must always
be immaculately neat and as near the
latest fashion as she can afford.
The etiquette of the ankle is very j
simple, but imperative. The well- j
bred woman must never needlessly j
lift her skirts. The silken fringe of
her pettieoat should just clear her in- \
step; then the lifting of her dress j
will be all that is necessary, even in !
crossing the muddiest streets.
This rule does not hold good for the j
bicycle girl, however, for custom per- I
mits her to frankly reveal her ankle
as long as it is incased in the conven
tional leggings, high boots or golf
stockings, but it is not good form to
wear the bieycle skirt unusually or
The etqiuette of the leg is told in
the following paragraphs:
Women should never sit with their
legs crossed. The; woman who crosses
her legs when seated in public is pos
sibly more at ease, but she renders
herself liable to unpleasant comment.
To sit decorously and gracefully is
lot difficult, but it is certainly rather
an uncommon accomplishment in this
day. (iood breeding demands that
she should sit with her feet placed to
gether, or nearly so, on the floor, and
ker body erect.
AVOID CARELESS SITTING.
Women should remember always to
avoid a careless habit of sitting. For
ty years ago mothers and teachers at
tached great importance to instructing
girls in this branch of the breeding of
It is hardly necessary to say to a
lady that it is inexcusable in a mo
ment of thoughtlessness for a waman
to tuck her foot up under her, and be
practically sitting upon it. This un
graceful act is equally injurious to her
circul?t!*?? as indicative of bad man
A woman should never sit clasping
her knees with her hands.
A woman should never so twist her
leg as to place her foot on the side
round of a rliair. Nor should she loll
about on chairs or sofas.
The most important rule in this line
of etiquette for men attacks the fam
ous American custom of sitting with
the feet higher than the head. This
is a-position never assumed in the
presence of ladies by even the most

ETIQUETTE FOR MEN.
It is very bad manuers for men to
sit in a car in such a way as to en
croach on the space belonging to oth
ers. They should never stretch out
their feet in the aisle of a public con
veyance, or otherwise occupy more
than their alloted space, as their care
less attitnde may, and probably will
be a stumbling block in the way of
their fellow passengers. Considera
tion for our neighbors is the essence
of good breeding, and disregard of
their rights or comfort shows the ab
sence of it.
It is considered bad form for men to
complete their toilettes by turning up
the trousers after they have left the
house, or having their shoes polished
on the street corner. Well-bred men

How the Big Guns Work.
The writer once witnessed at close
quarters a target practice of the two
12-inch rifles mounted at Sandy Hook,
and a brief description of how the
mighty guns work and the "scores"
that can be made with them may be of
interest just now.
The guns are mounted on elevators,
and are loaded at the breech when
sunk in a shaft, where the gunners
work in perfect safety. While they
are being loaded two observers, at
some distance and in different direc
tions from the guns, arc "finding*' the
target, as it is called.
That this work may be done speed t
i ly and accurately, engineers have de
voted many months of precise work.
The result of this is that two ob
servers have before them charts co
related with each point of observa
tion, the guns and the field within
which is the target. The observers
have instant communication with each
other by three means which need not
be mentioned. The ''target" being
determined upon?say one of a fleet of
hostile ships?it is ''found" by the
two observers. Each learns from his
observation the direction of the tar
get. Observer A takes his own and
observer B's observation and extends
two lines on his chart, which give him
the exact location of the target, which
is whore the tovo extended lines meet:
and this also determines, so elaborate
ly has the preliminary charting been
done, the exact direction and distance
of the target from the guns. This in
formation is communicated to the gun
ners. They know, for these elements
have also been accurately determined
?how much the rifle must be ele
vated, with a given charge and pro
jectile, to carry the required distance.
'Jhis sounds complicated, but it is
as easy as it is for a bank clerk to de
termine a complicated problem in in
terest by turning to a printed compila
tion, a table.
Kut the result: Having the infor
j mation given to him by the observers,
the gunner raises the big cannon on
its elevator platfoim, it is directed
and elevated by simple machinery, tbe
lanyard is pulled, a thousand pound*
of steel burls through the air, and the
cannon is sunk in the shaft fer another

writer the target was live miles dis
tant, and so small it could not be dis
tinguished from the ocean white caps

Something in the Ear
The ears of children are favorite, re
ceptacles for small sticks, pebbles,
beans and the like. Insects may als
occasionally crawl into the ear, and
fles are sometimes put there by chil
dren who enjoy the buzsing sosnd and
the tickling which the prisoners eauso
in then- efforts to escape. Sometimes
the fly, despairing of exit by the way
he entered, this being closed by the
little hand, will crawl in the other di
rection, and if he chances to reach the
drum membrane his revenge on his
tormentor will be complete.
The ear is usually very tolerant o?
any inert substance which has found
entrance, the presence of which may
be discovered only accidentally during
the child's bath; and then the trouble
generally begins with the nurse's at
tempt to extract it. If the body is a
pea or bean, however, it will absoib
moisture and swell, causing severe
The chief danger of a foreign body
in the ear is that it tempts unskilled
persons to try to remove it, for almost
invariably the only result of such ef
forts is to jam it further in, perhaps
even so far as to break the membrane
and cause irreparable injury to the
delieate structure in the drum of the
It is hazardous, indeed, to attempt
extraction in these cases, that it is
almost wiser to advise that the offend
ing object be left alone, no matter
how much pain and distress its pres
ence may cause. Certainly if a phy
sician can be reached, even with some
delay, the work should be left to him;
but a doctor may be inaccessible, or
the pain, as from the presence of a
live insect, may be so excraciating
that something must be done at once.
The first rule for removing anything
from the ear is a "don't"?don't poke
in the ear! If the trouble is due to
an insect, let the child lie on the op
posite side and then pour a little luke
warm water into the car; the insect
will almost always come to the surface
of the fluid and crawl out of the open
Syringing the ear with lukewarm
soap-water will usually suffice to dis
lodge a hard body which is too tightly
wedged in; if, however, this is some
thing that will absorb waterand swell,
we must refrain, for the only result
will be to fasten it more securely.
Sometimes a loop of very thin wire
can be slipped behind the intruder,
which can then, by a dexterous man
uvre, be pulled out. But this is one
of the measures that had better be
left to the doctor, if one can be found
without unreasonable delay. Indeed,
nothing should be done by either
mother or nurse, if it is possible to
