Google 



This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on Hbrary shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe.

Dear Folks: 



HARVAItt COLLCOI LtatAWV 

<yFTOF 
RICHAJ^0 W. HAlf 

INTRODUCTION 




ERE they are, Clarice and Aloysius, Julie, Ethelbert and 
Belladonna, in book form for the first time. I hope 
you will all buy a copy, as the price of ham and eggs, 
yachts and automobiles are way up; and ^^artists have 
to live'\ In these days of "Looney Living'% it's pretty hard to keep 
up with the Joneses, so if you are having any trouble in ^^kei^ing 
np'% a copy of this little book may give you a few helpful hints. 

I cheerfully recommend it as a complete social guide to those 
idesiring to mingle with the 400 or 4,000,000, as the case may be. 
After reading it you win have no trouble in distinguishing a demi- 
tasse from a cafe parf ait, or the correct angle at wUch to hold your 
finger bowl when drinking therefrom. 

The leaves in this book are especially suitable for wall paper, 
now that wall paper is so high. Buy a couple of thousand copies 
at any news stand, cut out the pages, {^aper the walls of your 
drawing room with them, and you will have a design of rare and 
unusual beauty, combined with an art gallery that none of the old 
masters could equal. 

There are many other uses to which ihis volume can be put, but 
'paper and ink are so expensive and the publisher told me to be 
very careful and not write too much. No college, home or barber 
shop is complete without a copy. 

Sincerely, 




Oopsright, 1920, by Bapslea & Leon Cbmpwy
