RefuMti invitations altogether, or Invitation1 previously acwptcil, is with the many an efl'ort, if not exactly painful, yet not altogether pleasant. To write n refusal with facts at com mand deprives the act of any mispl cion of ungraciousness: but facts are not always forthcoming, or are, per haps, of too private a naturo to be made public property, hence, in writ ing refusals and excuses, a certain knowledge of letter-writing is all im portant to novices in the art of saying the right thing. Hut with regard to refusals, the most decidedly disagree able to write arc those in answer to in vitations asked for through a third per son. I'eoplc have various reasons for declining general invitations besides the all-sulliei-nt one of "a prior en gagement." "Mis. A. very much re grets that a previous engagement pro vents her having the pleasure of ac cepting Mrs. H.'s kind invitation," is the usual formula in the conventional world; but if these ladies were on more friendly terms with each other, Mrs. A. would probably write in the first person when pleading a prior en gagement. It is nn open question whether tho nature of the engagement should bo stated or not. Even intimate friends often confine themselves to the state ment of the bare fact only that a prior engagement exists; others, on the con trary, state the nature of tho engage ment, and there is no doubt that in so doing so a compliment is conveyed, I he refusal softened, and any sense of dis appointment, allayed. Reserve is one cause for seeming want of conlidenco, and a dislike to Kriting long letters is another good reason" while yet a third is tho fear of not being equal to the task of explain ing the engagement in a neatly-turned sentence, I'cw care to confess this much, but roundabout letters prove that tho fear is not an unfounded one. When a prior engagement can not bo made tho basis of a refusal, then the refusal must rest on other lines, and how to avoid giving annoyance or of fense is so perplexing, that the accept ance of an unwelcome invitation is of ten preferable. Ill-health or a severo cold are ex cuses that can not bo challenged; if neither of those impediments can be advanced, politeness must fall back upon another resource, and this is exact ly what politeness finds a dilliculty in doing. Why go?" And thus it m easier on the spur of tho moment, to creato an engagement for the day named in tho invitation than to seek helplessly for a further excuse. The excuse of a "prior engagement" is adopted by many in the same sense in which "not at homo" is in every day use, signifying in tho one case not to accept an invitation, as in the other an intention not to admit visitors. Hut it is not every ono who ventures to take this latitude, consider ing that it is not a straightforward course, preferring to make a saerifico of inclination rather than thus evade an unwelcome invitation. As a general rule, few invitations are declined, save under imperative circumstances, which means, indispo sition, illness or family bereavement, or unavoidable absence from home. American Queen. SL'MMKIC SKITS. Summer soups are essentially thoso without stock; they are palatable, nu tritious, inexpensive, and easily pre pared, and it is well, if the cook is ex perienced in such matters, to attempt these simple soups before experiment ing with tho imaginary ililti -u ties or j stock making. One of the very sini plest forms of these "soups without j stock" is the potato soup. One always , has tho ingredients for this right at hand, and it may be made in three- quarters of an hour easily. It is very palatable, and is especially liked by ' children It is good for them, too, be ing nourishing und healthful. For a small quantity you wiil u-te three pota toes, one pint of milk, one tea-pootiful of chopped onion, one Mali of eeivry, Ono teaspoolif'll of s:it, olie-haif a tc;i Spoonfili of eery salt, i l:"-li:i f a -:ll!-BUOOtlfill of white pepper, one quarter , of a saltspoonful of cayenne, one-half a tablespoonful of Hour, one table- ' spoonful of butter. S"!eet the potatoes with care, having lie in of a eood and uniform sie; wash und pate them, and let them soak in cold water fur half au hour; put them in boi.in water and ' cook them until they are very s'jft; cut the celery stalk in small pieces and i cook it, with the chopped onions, in milk, which bhouid be in a dotiLile boil er. When the potatoes are soft, drain them and mash them with a wire potato smasher, beating them up until they are line and light; add the boiling ' milk nd the seasoning; rub this mix-' ture through a strainer, and put it on j again to boil in the double boiler in which the milk was heated; put the! butter Into ft email saucepan, and when ; it Im melted and bubbling, add the j flour, ftnd when woll mixed stir Into the boiling soup; cook five minutes, and serve not Kot all rub s f ir potato . l a ....

I SOQp g'e lUV UVlll, uub una ivanj iuui to the smoothness of the soup, as it keeps the potato and milk from scparat ing, nd giTes consistency that is quit unlike the granular effect often noticed io soap from which the flour has been omitted. If you find the soup too thick, you may add more hot milk. The celery salt may bo omitted if you have tho fresh celery, or, if you like, put ono tablespoonful of the chop ped parsley into the soup just before serving. If you wish tho soup to bo riehor,"you may uso a quart of milk, making it much thinner and adding two eggs, well beaten, after you take it fromUie lire; or put them into the tureen and stir rapidly as you pour in tho boiling soup. Kit her way it is very nlcc.lloiiiji 11 raid. INEM'KNSIVK MtKSSKS. To begin with, ladies who like cali coes may revel in them at nominal cost. Twelve yards of 6-cent calico, a dozen or a dozen and a half of but tons at 2 cents a dozen, and two spools of cotton for sewing make tho price of a pretty morning dress barely 80 cents; j or, if tho dress is made in two pieces with Spanish flounce and long, half- iittiug sack nino yards, or at most ten, will be suflicient. White grounds, with small figures, are the wisest choice in these cheap calicoes, and tho variety of design is limited. White and black washes best; next comes white ami brown. The 8 cent calicoes aro warranted fast colors, and conio in much greater variety. American percals at 12$ cents mako lovelv dresses, and American sateens are sliown in the same patterns and colorings as tho French goods at more than twice tho money. It can not be denied, however, that tho foreign ma- terial is much liner in linish; still, tho American fabric finds many purchas ers, and if very effective- when prettily made, Lawns at Yl cents, ginghams at 10 and 1G cents per yard, ami tho pretty linen d'Inde, which is tho ac cepted substitute for Victoria lawn, and which may be bought as low as 20 cents, swell the list of inexpensive ma terials. Thus for h ono may purchase a 5 cent calico, a gingham at i cents, i and a lawn at the same price, twelve i yards of each, together with two pieces j of harrow imitation Valenciennes at 20 i cents per piece to trim the lawn, fifteen I yards of Hamburg edge at 2 cents per i yard for the gingham, and still have have money enough left to buy buttons J and spool cotton. The gingham will i be quite as pretty self trimmed, and in I this case a yard "more should be pur chased to allow for hems. Thirteen yards of linen d'Inde is suf licient for a tucked dress with round waist gathered to a belt, and wide sash of tho dress material tucked across tho ends, iso trimming is necessary, but an embroidered mull lichu, which can be bought for 75 cents, should be worn with the dress. Or, for a moro econ omical fichu, take a half square of tho material and hemstitch it it in tucks on tho straight sides. 1'hilade'phi'i Pass. THE WHALEISONE BOIICE. Catherine do Medici introduced tho real whalebone bodice, with a strong busk in front, and her example was soon imitated by all Europe Waist compression increased in snito of tho I protests of kings and emperors and and chief ministers ami nobles oi tno land. This fashion is familiar to us in England through tho portraits of "good Queen Bess." Never since armor has been invented has any stiller framework for tho human body been devised. Tho deep-pointed bodice was ns stiff and hard as combined wire, whalebone and steel could make it. and, to add to tho I discomforts which fashion dictated, tho I neck was likewise supported by a ruff not only formed upon an elaborato i background of metal and thick wire, j but stiffened by tho newly discovered i "devil's liquor" starch. Men were as vain as women; both squeezed in their j waists and both swelled their garments out below. Thus a machine which bad begun innocently enough as a tight-tit-ting linen bodice was gradually devel oped by tho addition of busks of wood, of ivory and whalebone, and of sheets and strips of steel, until a veritablo armor-like incasing resulted. Theso stiff, whaleboned corsets lasted through all changes of outward attire; they were prominent features of the Ucstor ation fashions and of tho Watteau per iod; but the revolution nt the end of ' tho eighteenth century, which shook ' not only France but all Europe, had an I ...II.. ....I...... , ...... ..i., i'ili;ill Bll LM Ul VI vu run. :t llje-ill i;ui.ii:l.i.
