A quaint story of oldou times, recently re
told In Golden Days, convoyfl a pleasing les
on to young iwoplo as woll an tholr elders.
Tho story goon that Bomewhero mnuy years
agothcro lived a housekeeper w1iom nlTnira
for n long tlmo had been in n very bad way,
and sho know not what to do. 80 sho vent
to a wlso old hermit who lived In a neighbor
ing cave, and told him her trouble,
"Things go badly," said sbo. "Nothing
prosper, in door or out. Tray, sir, can you
not dovlso somo remedy for my misfor
tunes!" Tho hcnnlt reflected, bogged hor to vrnlt,
and, retiring to nn inner chnmber of hU
cave, after a short tlmo brought out a vory
curious looking box, carefully sealed up.
"Tako this," Mid he, "and keep it for ono
year. Out you must, turns times n day and
throo times a night, carry it into tho kitchen,
tho cellar and tho stablo, and sot it do mi In
each corner. I answer for It that shortly
you will llud things improve. At tho end of
tho year bring back tho box. Now, fare
well." The good woman received tho box with
many thanks, and boro it carefully home,
Tho next day, as sbo was carrying it into tho
cellar, sho tnot a servant who had boon
secretly drawing a pitcher of beer. As sho
went, a llttlo later, into tho kitchen, thoro
she found a maid making herself a vory largo
emelette. In tho stablo sho found tho groom
selling somo hay to a stranger.
At tho end of tho year, faithful to her
promise, sho carried tho box back to tho her
mit, aud besought him to allow her to keep
it, as It bod a most wonderful effect.
"Only lot mo keep it ono year longer," she
pleadod, "and I am sure nil will bo reuio
died." Tho hermit smiled and replied:
'I cannot allow you to keep tho box, but
tho secret that is hidden within you shall
llo o)cued tho box, and lol it contained
nothing but a slip of paper, ou which was
written this couplet:
Would you thrive most prosperously,
Yourself must ovcry corner see.

SOCIAL ETIQUETTE. ' "l
Dinner Giving the Pivot Upon Which
Dinner parties fonn ono of tho most pleas
ant means of giving entertainment to friends,
according to Good Housekeeping. A dinner
party legitimately addresses itself to tho
Interests of all in a manner not reached by
other forms of cutertatnmont; for Mr. Green
cannot danco, and Miss Fresh cannot talk,
and nono of Wesley Calvin's fumlly are
allowed to play cards, but 0 vory body can oat.
All arrangements for ovcry detail of a din
ner should bo mndo well beforehand; and this
application of tho "art which conceals art"
Is tho only way Iu which an occasion of this
kind can bo rellovcd from conventionality
and stiffness. If any ono of your guests are so
thoughtless as to ctpono their acceptance
of tho invitation uutil a lato day, tholr fault
should bo remembered; and if any should bo
Impolite enough to bo tartly on tho occasion,
do not lot tho other guests and tho dinner
suffer for tholr remissness, and remember
that in such case ono Is rellovcd of all em
barrassment in not awaiting their arrival.
Au excellent method of securing tho de
sired arrangement of escorts to tho dinner
table is to place in tho gontlemcu's room an
cnvolopo directed to each ono, and in that
envelope n canl stating that ho is expected to
escort such or such a lady to tho dining
room; and In tho ladles' dressing room an
corrojpondlng cards, giving to each lady the
narno of tho gentleman whoho attention is to
bo devoted to her. Tho most desirable way
of seating guests is by card at their respective
plates; ami this will atono for any mishap in
pairing them off for dinner; for it frequently
happens that icoplo will volunteer tholr ser
vices ns escort iu udvunco of any action by
Toil Kxduitlve or Too Shy. ,
Two ladles will meet tu n friend's parlor,
says Hurjier's llaznr, and, it not introduced,
will sit nml guzo at each other as if they be
longed to hostile trllios of Indians. This is a
relloof barbunsm,nnd, moreover, dreadfully
Ignorant and ill bred. It is proper In your
friend's parlor tooxcluitigotbocoiumonphces
of courtesy, even If you go down the front
