Second: Having been enter tained, return and pay your party call. Third: If there are young la dies visiting in your town and you have been asked to call, do so, and further extend any cour tesy in your power to make their ' stay a pleasant one. Fourth: When walking or driv ing with a young lady leave your cigar or pipe at home, and cer tainly when you take herjnto an ice cream parlor. Fifth: Don't speak of having a "date" with any lady. Dates are for fairs, horse shows, selling lots, etc. Last, and worst of all, to you, young ladies, stop the vulgar cus tom of having you names laid around on counters and show cases, while the young men make "bids" on your company to the dance, for while you allow such familiarity you lessen the dignity of womanhood, and forfeit our right to the reverence which is due you from the opposite sex.
