This Popular Amusement Foclologli ally
In a recent con vernal Ion about amuse,
ments, the general utility and propriety
of dancing was canvassed.
A lady ohnerved that by tradition and
education being a member of a some
what strict denomination she was up
lcd to tills form of recreation; but In
the community where she was living,
there seemed to be nothing else In a so
cial way. and her object Ions were being
No doubt thla Is a subject of more or
less perennial Interest not only to pa
rents, teachers and guardians, but may
be to sociologists and atatlstlclana. The
following Is submitted from the point
of view of the social statistician, who
would segregate facts, and discover
their beating on human welfare.
In a certain small community that
has come under the observation of the
writer th line was very strictly drawn
on the subject of amusement; one part
being consistent danoers of the entirely
genteel sort; the other non-dancers of
the strictest sect. Vital statistics of
each class after a period of some years,
are as follows:
Non-dancers, young ladles, members
considered, fourteen; married, at pres
ent, fourteen; living at present time,
fourteen; total number of children, fif
ty; average age at marriage, "t.
It should be observed that In every
cose tho young Indies married well, men
of Influence, abundant means, strictly
moral, and total alwtalrers. In the en
tire flock of their children there Is not
one defective physically or deficient
mentally, or that shows signs of moral
iwrvcrslty. It might also be added
that every one of these young ladles
was college-educated, anB at some time
taught school; quite Independent and
able t take care of herself. At pres -
ent. with but two or three exceptions.
their health is vigorous, and they are,
without exception, women of high
standing and Influence.
Vital statistic of the young ladles
who took their amusement In dancing.
are as follows:

It may be thought that the espe
cially fortunate non-dancers and the
esioclall' unfortunate dancers have
been selected; but It Is not so. Ill each
case all that could be remembered In
each sot have been counted In. The
dancers ns well as the others belonged
to good families, were well educated,
and In no respect behind the non-danc

Certainly it would not do to draw
a sweeping conclusion from these facts',
yet the following can hardly fall to be,
Just. Those that deprived themselves !
of whatever enjoyment there is In danc-;
ing imrtles, and thus Incurred the stlg- .
nui of prudery or old-maldbiiness, have j
not missed the good of life, but during ,

independent and useful; and In their
nuirled life have been singularly fortu
nate. They are still living Intellectual
and generous lives, with increasing use
fulness. On the contrary, the majority
of the girls that danced cut short their
time of preparation, and made a failure
of their domestic life.
Precisely what the connection In oth
ers may Infer, this would seem to be
true: Time spent In dancing, getting
ready for it and thinking about It,
leaves only an Impression upon the
senses, and ends simply In agreeable
feeling. It stimulates the emotional
life at the expense of the mental life,
and favors Inclination at the expense
of Judgment. It is the well-trained
mental faculties, with Intelligence and
cultivated sympathies, that prolong the
freshness nf life. In women no less than

slight test of his capacity to shine in

way of learning man to see him at
work, as In school, or In conversation,
or at a prayer meeting, or debating
society, or temperance society; where
his mental and moral qualities have a
chance to show. The girls that make
their acquaintances at da noes are likely
to Judge men by their look and cl-rthe.
or other superficial qualities rather than
by their merits, and If dancing monop
olize social life, the girls have no fair
chance to Judge of men truly.
Which, If this Is all true and Just.
is much ground for the opinion, held
largely by sensible perpie, that dancing
Is a sort of amusement that might very
well be substituted by something .-nr.re
improving; and that as a cheap and
trivial way of spending time It Is on
the whole vicious.
Ho much might be Inferred from farts
taken from the best of scolcty. When
we look narrowly at the worth of so
ciety, Aiid find how It cams so, a much
strong' i conclusion might be reached.
It takes a certain amount of Puritanism
to make life rugged and pure; and even
at the risk of narrowness what Is
doubtful and, debilitating may be ex
cluded, nnd still enough that Is good
will be left. H. . I.

Captain Corkhlll, of (Ee British ship
Crown of India, who Is now In port
awaiting orders, went through the entire
revolution In Rio m 1891 and 18M. The
captain has many Interesting stories of
those exciting times when merchant
ships which entered the harbor Ignor
ant of the state of warfare, were prac
tically held prisoners, fired upon at ran
dom, their sailors killed, and worst of
all, their men swept down by the yellow
fever plague without even a chance of
getting them Into a hospital or secur
ing medical aid. Water and provisions
were at a premium, and If it had not
been for the determination and bravery
of the commandant of the American na
vy stationed there, no relief whatever
could have been had. Contrary to their
usual custom the officers of the British
navy lay on their oars and saw eighty
vessels of the British merchant service
suffer for the want of a little, protec
tion. The correspondence at the time
by British ship masters would make a
volume of Interesting history.
