E. P. In leaving a reoitation room, in going up
stairs as down, a woll bred young lady precedes a
gentleman never waits for him.
A. M. and R No, spoon holders are no longer
used but if one should be fancied tho one you are
using now would do very nicely.
H. M. When a gentleman is whore a lady is put
ting on her oloak he should offer to help her assume
it, but he need not be more than hour in so doing, un
the sleeves are very large.
Simplicity. It is very bad taste to call a woman
Mrs. Dr. Smith. It would be quite as suitable to
say Mrs. Salesman Jones or Mrs. Broker Bones,
though I don't doubt she did.
S. A. E. 1. It is very improper for a man to smoke
in the presence of a woman and certainly dj gentle
man will do this when walking on the street with a
woman, even if he is engaged or married to her.

safely go about the university unattended at most
hours oE the day. N. A "chap"oron is N never a
Anxiety. If a strauger slams the library door in
your face it is sufficient for you to bov and say "thank
you;" if the offender be a friend a simple nod is
enough, but one cannot be too particular on ch oc
casions. Flo. F. "While it would not be in good taste to re
fuse him on account of his height, especially one of
such military rank, yet it would be quite impracticable
to dance with stilts on. Better avoid him, if possible,
throughout the evening.
Anxious Junior Aftor Senior "Scrap." I should
advise cold cream, to be obtained at any drug house.
No, even if your tie was red, the maiden had no right
to snatch it and out it up; it was very ill-brad; how
over, I should overlook it.
Don't go off mad, as you did last year,
And leave Company "B" away in the rear.
