The Art
There arc certain points connected
with introductions which are not al
ways clearly grasped by those intro
duced, to judge from the questions
which now and again reach us on
the subject. The situation is so
momentary there is little or no time
for reflection, any more than when
crossing a street between a street car
and an automobile, when the decision
lies between going forward or step
ping backward. At the crucial mo
ment of being introduced comes the
opportunity of doing one of two
things and of being satisfied or dissat
isfied with the decision made.
Rules, however wise they may be,
cannot be made to fit every circum
stance of social life, and, broad as
they are, they yet are open to many
exceptions, and if you cannot exactly
drive a coach and horses through
them, as in the case of some of our
laws and regulations, you may get
around them by taking advantage of
the aforesaid exceptions. How to act
on the occasion of an introduction is
determined almost entirely upon the
reason tnr itj being made, and by
whom and to whom the person is thus
Even the local? has something to
do with it, and thus a variety of is
snei are raised, upon which an in
stantaneous judgment has to be given.
The mind has to travel with lightning
rapidity over the ground to arrive at
a correct course of action; but the
mind does not always respond to the
call made upon it; it hesitates, and.
acts not upon the outcome of the in
troduction, but upon the spur of the
The received rule is not to shake
hands, but merely to bow, on being
introduced, but this under certain
circumstances, would not meet the
case; it would disappoint the one in
troducing and the one introduced. For
instance, if a relative of the former
is the person introduced, a bow would
be a very chilling response to the in
troduction made; to shake hands, pn
the contrary, would be the correct
thing to do. and both persons should
offer at the same moment this cordial
On the other hand, if a casual intro
duction is made without any premedi
tation, and those introduced arc to
tally unknown to each other, an ex
change of bows ia all that is required.
Among the exceptions of not bow
ing only on being introduced comes
in the introductions made between
young ladies and elderly ones, and
between young ladies themselves. An
elderly lady, as a general rule, shakes
hands with the girl introduced to her
with the idea of being cordial and
kind, not to say condescending, and
girls generally shake hands with, each
other in place of bowing, as acquaint
anceships formed by them have not
the momentum that attaches to those
of older ladies; besides, a greater
readiness to make friends is the priv
ilege and characteristic of youth.
Men take very much the same view
as regards introductions as do women
that is to say, if an introduction
is made by a relative of the man in
troduced, the men would shake hands,'
and not merely bow. This holds
equally good where intimate friends
are concerned; they almost rank on
the footing, of relations, and a cordial
reception is given to an introduction
thus made. When casual introduc
tions are made of necessity rather
than of intention men do not shake
hands. When "I think you have met
Smith," or 'T think you know Mr.
Sith," is said the one by a host and
the other by a hostess nothing fur
ther is required from either than a
bow and a smile of acquiescence, ac
cepting the introduction and a dis
claimer is not expected if Mr. Smith
is not actually known. The uncer
tainty is an excuse for making the

of Proper Introduction
One of the points upon which some
of our correspondents arc not very
clear is with regard to rising from
their seats on being introduced. This
question does not trouble men. as
they are usually tound standing, or
they are brought up to a person to
be introduced, and even if a poor
man ventures upon sitting down for a
few moments at an at-home or be
fore dinner is announced, he springs
to his feet with guilty alacrity when
any approach is made in the matter
of introducing him to a fellow guest.
With women it is otherwise. They
do not rise from their seats either
at an at-home or before dinner is
announced or after dinner, or when
calling people are introduced to them
or when they themselves are intro
duced. Half an exception occurs, it is
true, at crowded at-homes, when to
rise and talk to the woman intro
duced is almost a necessity. There
acant seat for her to take,
and, therefore, if both do not stand
conversation is at a deadlock, as the
few first conventional remarks made
by either are lost ill the general buzz
going around, also it is awkward and
ungraceful for a woman to bend oyer
one seated for the purpose of saying
a few platitudes. Introductory re
marks," or remarks followed upon in
troduction, have too often a melan
choly ring of commonplaceness about
them, and are distinctly trite. How i
can they be otherwise? '
To venture out of the commonplace
into orgiuality would be suspicious of
eccentricity, and no one wishes to be ,
considered a little odd.
Before and after dinner, when intrq-1
ductions are made between ladies it
is to those seated near to each other,
and, therefore, there would be no oc-;
casion to rise, as there might be at an ;
at home. There is no question of a i
lady rising from her seat when a man :
is introduced to her, unless that man '
is her host, when she should rise and j
shake hands with him, or a clerical i
dignitary a bishop, for instance, if
oportunity allows of it, and on a semi
official occasion. ',
Introductions often have to be made ,
at afternoon cails, supposing that two I
or three callers only are present and
the hostess feels that she must render
talk general by making some kind of j
introductions, direct or indirect, as
she thinks best.
The ladies thus introduced remain

Introductions between callers made
under enforced circumstances have
not much bearing on future acquaint
ance. Those introduced pass so short
a time in each other's company and
know practically nothing of each
other's surroundings that they are un
certain whether at future meetings
they ought to recollect that such in
troductions have taken place, and
whether they should bow or forget.
Actually, it would be correct to bow,
if the opportunity is given to do so,
but unless the wish to bestow recog
nition is mutual it is of little avail
! to endeavor to enforce it; it would
not be worth the having if grudgingly
given, and it would be worse still were
it withheld.
Some people have short memories
for faces, and others are shortsighted,
and both these drawbacks have to be
reckoned with when expecting recog
nition from a person to whom one
has been thus introduced.
