Allen Uodworth has published in a
manual of dancing explicit instructions
as to the proper attitude to assume
toward your partner (feminine) in
round dances. Many young gentlemen
might profit hy following Mr. Dod
worth' rules, and hy taking timely
warning of those additional sugges
tions, . QA 4

position known in tha West a the
"double hug" is neither refined nor
pleasing to the eye. Nor is it neces
sary; tho young lady will not try to
get away until tho musio stops, if her
partner is respectably skillful.
You will notice, sometimes, at fire
men's halls, that some of the gentlemen
hold their partners much as if they
wore hose. That is not tho way; tho
men that keep them at a distance, as if
they were the 6 re, are nearer right

While avoiding und'je compression
of your partner, do not allow her to
forget that you are there. Unless

she will no' allow1 you to do so it is

Lost En Crip.
The man who has lost his grip do-
srves morn attention than ho usually
receives, lie is an old friend. Every
body knows him. He is a man who
lives, not from choice, hut from neces
sity on a diet of cold shoulder. It seem
impossible for a man who has com
pletely lost his grip to ever tegain it.
Ho may Is? a steam engine in breeches,
and a model of good conduct and in
tegrity, but his energy and ability will
go fot nothing. It is useless for him
to assert himself and make a decided
stand. The tide is against him, and
he cannot successfully breast it. Why
is this sol To this question all tort
of answers have been given.
The fact that our unfortunate ac
quaintance once had a grip indicates
that he at one ti.no in his career pos
sessed some of the essentials belonging
to the make-up of a successful man.
The explanation of his hopeless and
helpless "flop'' involves the analysis of
the leading condition of success and
In the first generation a man reck
ons only two ancestors, his father and
mother. In the second generation the
two are changed into four, ainoo he had
two erandfather and two grandmoth
ers. Each of these four had two par
ents, and thus in the third generation
there are found to 1 eight ancestors
that ia eight greatgrandpirents. In
the fourtn generation the number of
ancestors is sixteen, in the fifth thirty-
two, in the sixth sixty four, in the
seventh 128, in the tenth 1,021, in the
twenthi'lh 1,048,576, in the thirtieth
1,073,741,831. This may prove that
all the world's akin.
