description ol waltzing is so tine to
lln' that we ic produce it. II it should
so happen that the reader has belore j
read It, why pa It over. Ihe writer
ot the same inilM have spoken from
real expt-iience: "A group ol splendid

ami gent incitcle their paituer waist
with one arm. Thu ladie ami gentle

gents go rip, rap, rap, rap. Ladies feel
go lippvty, tip, tlppety, tip, tip. Then
all go lippety, clijipetiy, slipperly,

Feet fly, tiesfc tly, all lly. It looks

into l heir bosoms, breast iig itust breast,

Now they are again making a sound
like georgy, porgy, deery-peery, didy
pidy, coiicny, poachy. "This dance is
not mm b, but the extra arc glnroius."
If the men were women, there would
he no such dancing. Hut they aro on

women's love ot it.

pleasure ! A perpetual baby this Is a
dear, good doir, who looks nt you with
