OLD TABLE CUSTOMS. Even at so late a period as the Re storation, it was the custom for guests to take their own knives and forks to a banquet.

They 'were required to .wear cloan, hootsa. not to be halfdrunk-on their arrival, not-to drink more than one goblet to every' two dishes, not to throw the bones under the table,. nor to lick their fingers: The Stuarts undoubtedly did much to reline Ing lish tahle ,manners, for it was one of the point tedmiredl in Mary Queen of Scots that the customs she introduc ed from France made her Court and Royal hanquets more exquisite and" gentle tLhan those of her rival, Queen Elizaboth.
