IPromth UUmingham ZraIif.
The Mozart of the occasion, a tall, lean and lank
individual wltb his pauta Incased In a pelr of rougb
I boots, with a sombrero caroloisly placed on his
head, was the first person to enter the palatial par
lors of the "Hotel Grande." He carried under
lilt arm a long, white Buck that resembled In ap
pearauco a meal B.ck. Ho waa Immediately fol
lowed by anoiber person, no lota conspicuous, who
took In thcaituailon and surroundings, lit bis corn
cob pipe, sirolled over In one corner and eat down.
This fellow, I so n learned, was tre grand sachem
and master of ceremonies. A tbud monarch of
the West soon appeared on the scene and walked
over lo where the other two follows were In con
virsatlon, atranglnglng the varied and stupendous
programme for the nr.t ball of tbe season.
These three In livlduals oo istltuled the band. I
am unable to define distinctly whether It could be
called a strnwed or lira, band, bnt after a oareful
and unbiassed opinion, ull due regard being be
stuwed on tno entertainment, I urn Inclined to
think It must have been of tbe latter kind.
tbe lasses and laddies finally arrrlved, when one
of tbe aforesaid seatiemen, turning to tbe leader
of the band, remarked:
11111. they're come, 'cept Sal Scrogglns and
Betsy Ann Jones, and you can bet your ylow pup
they'll b here, ease Jecms son't the word he'd
feton 'em, and you know be nlver goes back on bla
lllll arose, took ont tho fiddle from the left-band
corner of the neat and costly case, adjusted bis
ciiulr In a proper position, pulled off bis coat and
"tuned up." I'rofes.or No. 2, w horn w will call
John, arose, tookbls cba r and placed It directlv in
front of lllll. Ho then re'lred, but returned In a
tew minutes wltb two email stick about one foot In
length and rruumed bla seat again. After some
parlance the professor nt oeremoules yelled out:
"Oct your par'ner In posisb In less than no
time, lor the kick-up low begins."
