TRUE RULES FOR
HOSPITALITY. Spirit of Real Entertainment Lies in the Heart and the Desire to Please INVITE THOSE YO LIKE Last Year’s Hats May Be Used This Season—A Silk Win ter Predicted. If ours were a perfect state of society. tonsTructed upon the Golden Rule, ani mated and guided throughout by unselfish tore for friend and neighbor, apd charity for the needy, there would lie no proprie ty in writing this chapter. Home, do mestic comfort and happiness being our best earthly possessions, we would be eagerly willing to share them with others, says Marion Harland in an exchange. As society is constructed under a siuie of artificial civilisation, and as our homes are kept and our households are run. the element of duty must interfere, or hospitality . would become a lost art. Even where the spirit of this—one of the most venerable of virtues—is not want ing. conscience is called in to regulate file manner aud the Seasons in which it should hi exercised. As a corner-stone assume, once for all. that a binding obligation rests upon you to visit and to receive visits and to en tertain friends, acquaintances and stang ers in a style consistent with your means, at such times as may be consistent with more serious engagements. It may sound harsh to assert'that you have no right to accept hospitality for which you can never make any return in kind. The principle i*. nevertheless, sound to the core. I do not mean if your wealthy ac quaintance invites you to a fifteeu ^eourse dinner, the cost of which equals your monthly income, that you are in honor or duty bound to hid her to an en i tertainment as elaborate, or suffer in her estimation, or by the loss of your self respect. But by the acceptance of the iuvitation you bind yourself to reciproca tion of some sort. If you can do noth ing more, ask your hostess to afternoon tea in your own house or flat, and have a few congenial spirits to-meet her there. It is the spirit in such a ease that makes alive and keeps alive the genial tow of good will and eordail friendli ness. The letter of commercial obliga tion. like for like, in degree and not in kind, would kill true hospitality. Your friend's friend, introduced by him and calling upon you, has a proved claim upon your social offices. If yon cannot make a special entertainment for him, • sk him to a family dinner, explaining that it is such, and make up in kindly welcome for the lack of lordly cheer. If it be a woman, invite her to lunch with you and a friend or two, or to a drive, winding np with tea in some of the quieti.O elegant tea rooms that seem to have been devised for the express use of people of g^ietons impulses and slen der purses. It is not the cost in coin of the realm that tells with the traveling stranger, but the temper In whieh the tribute is offered. “I do not ‘entertain' in the sense in whieh the word is generally used,” wrote a distinguished woman to me once, bear ing that I was to be it^ her neighbor hood. ‘‘But I cannot let you pass me by. Come on Thursday and lunch with me tete-a-tete.” I obeyed gladly, and the memory of that meal, elegant in simplicity, shared with one whoin my soul delights to honor, is as an apple of gold set in a picture of silver. i The stranger, as such, has a Scriptural ciaim upon you, when circumstances makes him your neighbor, In thousands of homes, since the day* when Abraham ran from his tent door to constrain the thirsting and hungering travelers to ac cept such rest aud refreshment as he could offer them during the heat of the day, angels have been entertained un aware in the guise of wt ranger-hood. “Did you know the P.'s before they came to our town?” ashed an inquisitive •New Englander of a neighbor. “So.” ' ■n< ' “Than y*u won’t mind my asking you? Why did you invito them to dinner on Thanksgiving Day? If* mad* * J«tl of talk.” Abraham’s disciple smiled. “Because they were strangers and seemed to be lunwly. They are respect able, and live on my block.” Poetical jusice requires me to add that the L.'», who”became the lifelong friends Over Sun day Atlantic City Outings Pennsylvania Railroad 'special fours.

New York. of their first hostess in the strange land, proved to be people of distinction whom the best citizens of the exclusive little town soon vied with one another to “cul tivating.” In ignorance of their ante cedents the imitator of the tentholder of Mam-re did her duty from the purest of motives. Not one individual or one family "has a moral or a social right to neglect the practice of hospitality. Unless one is confined to the house or bed by illness, one should visit and invite visits in- re turn. We are human beings, not hermit crabs. • * * Many of last season’s shapes in hats have been retained, some of which have been modified to a certain extent, but there are few distinctly new ones ex hibited so far. There are a number of flat shapes with moderately low crowns. The tricorne reappears, with confidence of a return to popular favor, and turbans of the ordinary and box types'—as weil as the perennial toque—are ail to be found in the fall assortment, says Toilettes. There is little, if any, of the floppy ef fect of the past season to be found in the new hats; they are all stiff, but not so much so that the rims cannot be easily bent into any shape the milliner may fancy. There are smooth and “scratch” felts in a variety of shapes, but most -of them have moderately high crowns and rims much wider in front an at the sides than at the back. When trimmed they are’ turned up sharply at one side with more of the trimming disposed under the brim than above it. Nap beavers are again in the showing, but are mostly in smaller shapes than those of last season. An extensive variety of chenille braids in all colors, mixtures, ombre and chame leon effects are shown; and hats are en tirely covered with them or they are used to face the brims of turbans of velvet of felt. Chenilles in all the shades of a cokv are placed row after row and woven or stitched together to foTm two-inch bunds for use in the making or trimming of hats. Very fancy braids of chenille in monotone or two-tone effects or pf che nille combined with narrow strips of taf feta the same shade or a different tons are used for covering turban shapes. Plush and velvet hats will be worn in a variety of shapes. One, the brim of which curves up well on both sides, has a moderately high crown and very stiff, is covered with reseda green velvet in light and dark ghades. the dark being used for the facing of the brim. Direetoire shapes, which had such a successful run in Paris late in the sum mer, will certainly be the favorite shapes for dressy wear, and will be made of vel vet or sjlk. The directorie bonnet will also be worn. These might be called hats, as they are a sort of compromise between a hat and bonnet and one of the very smartest and newest styles. They have no brim at the back, but a moderately wide one in front, which projects upward from the base of the crown. One made of chameleon taffeta in the combination of brown, green and orange with tucked ruchings and trimmed with an orange, green and brown cockade, attracted much interest. * It is silk, everything is silk, and it can be set down as a sure tiling that the silk gown is here for a long stuy. Even the foulards and the silks of China and India are not banished entire ly, for they make such fine fabrics for winter sbirt waists. China silk in ail tints is made up with lace, with fagot ing, with open Hemstitching and with lattice work. And India silk of fine tex ture is made the basis for fiouncings of lace around the yoke, for vests of lace and for some of the most marvelous bod ice trimmings that could be pictured. To buy an India silk shirt waist no longer means something simple and inex pensive. On the contrary, several of these waists retailed a few days ago In a New York store for $75 each. And an order was taken for one which was to cost $200. All of the fonlards are Impressed into winter use. and the light summer silks of the shops have been spirited away by cunning modistes to reappear later as fashionable shirt waists. “It is the vogue of ruffles,*’ said an ultra fashionable dressmaker the other! day, “and ail the nice gowns are ruffled. Some of them are trimmed with three wide ruffles around the bottom, eacff. ruffle hemstitched. Others a,re trimmed with plain ruffles. It matters very little whether the ruffle be lace tiflmtutd, trim med with Oriental stuff, scalloped, or pink or severely plain ion* hS it.is a,; raffiT .. . - --—■ i — ---- A DUEL IN TORM [Original] The food sailing ship Dorothy Hatch wm tbwed out of New York harbor. The odly passenger, a man with hand some, though sensual, features and a bad eye, stood watching the different points of infeere^. The crew were set ting things to right* on deck, the cap tain on the p«eP keeping an eye on them, for so long as his vessel was be ing towed he had i»6 responsibility of navigation. “What'S that baggage down there?” he ask^d, pointing to a trunk, a valiae and a bag standing against the mlzzen mast. % / ' “It belongs te a passenger that didn't, come aboard,” replied the purser. “Wyll, take It do^rn to the stateroom engaged. The room’s been paid for, I suppose?” The baggage was carried below. As it passed the only passenger and be caught sight of the owner's Initials, R. C. B„ on the end of the trunk he started, and the captain, noticing that he whs Very pale, remarked: “What, sick already? Why, wa haven’t reached the lower gay yet.” The passenger walked away, and the captain wondered. As the land line was sinking below tbe horizon supper Was called, and out of the stateroom where the missing passenger's baggage had been taken walked it* owner. Entering the cabin, where the other passenger was seated on the captain’s right, be took the seat on the captain’s left. upon my worn, exoiuuneu me as tonished captain, “where did you come from?*' “Didn’t feel well," was the reply, “and went directly to my stateroom. I was in the upper berth with the cur tains drawn When the men brought In my luggage." „ “H'm, singular. This is Mr. Gath any, who we supposed was our only passenger. Mr, Gathany, Mr. Brooks.’’ The two men bowhd formally. The captain strove to Introduce conversa tion at the table, but, failing, ate his supper in silence and Went on deck.” “How is it, Mr. SWeetsei',” he asked of the mate, “that this passenger Brooks came aboard without being no ticed r “Don’t know, sir. I stood at the gangway all the while and I didn’t see him.” ' At first there was fear among the .crew that the stranger Was something uncanny and would hoodoo the ship, but he1 appeared so unobtrusive, spoke In such a gentle voice aud with all seemed so kindly deposed that this feeling soon died away, or, rather, was transferred to the other passenger, Gathany. At any rate, a prejudice sprang- up against the man, and, when one day the barometer suddenly fell nearly kn inch withlh half an hour and a terrible black cloud came out of the west, growing in a few minutes from the sise of a ship’s sail to cover the whole .heavens, one of the men re marked: “The devil’s aboard this ship in some fashion, and-1 think he's that black looking passenger,” The hurricane struek the vessel be fore sufficient sail for safety could be got In and k jib burst with a report like a cannon. Then the fore topmast was 'harried away with its canvas. Next the mlzxen mast went by the board and had to be cut loose. After this there was nothing to do except to man the pumps, but despite the crew’s best efforts the leaking ship took wa ter faster than it could he pumped out “Where are the passengers ?’’ roared the captain. “Do they think we're go ing to let them akulk at Such a time. Go find them, Mr. Sweetser.” The mate Went up Into the cabin and there an astonishing sight met his gaze. The two passengers, manned with cutlasses, were in a life and death struggle as terrible as that of the crew at the pumps. In vain the mate called on them to desist; that the ship was sinking; that they were needed at the pumps. They saw him, but for the roar of the hurricane could not hear him. But neither for a moment took his gaze off the other. Presently the mate went byk and reported the atrhage scene. The oaptain sprang away to keep the two men who were needed to Save the ship and the crew from killing each other. When he came to the cabin be saw Brooks bending oYer Gath any, looking into a dying face, with an expression of fierce hate. Thp captain plucked the Victor by the slMVe, saying: “Come; the pumps! We’re sinking!" At that moment it seethed as if some one had thrown a handful of white flower on the fatten man's face. There was a gurfle. His jaw dropped. He was dead. Then for the first moment Brooks learned to realize that there waa a hurricane. The captain took hold of his arm and led him away to the pumps, where he took his place and worked mechanically- But he had scarcely begun when a yellow light ■hone through a port bole, and the captain, looking out, saw a broad band between the dark heavens and darker water line. Meanwhile the wind had lulled, and in a few minutes there was scarcely a zephyr. r or me rest uie voyage me crew looked upon Brooks u having saved them. Sot a man btit believed Gath any had wrecked Brooks’ life, and the storm god would not rest till the in jured map had had his revenge. .But no one ever knew what was the feud between them, and no one dared ask. When port was reached Brooks went nshdfo. A* he walked down the gang plank every man aboard leaned over the gunwale to watch him, and, as be eould be seen for a long distance, not an eye was turned' from him till ho Anally disappeared.
