" 'I hope not,' I answered, 'for jeal
ousy is such a little and mean emo

you did not love me any more, but
to be jealous of another person

Amherst, Wis. John Een, world's
That's the title he claims and he
has played at 4.683 dances.
Een began his fiddling career in
1862, when he picked up a violin as
he was marching with Sherman.
His real fiddling record did not
start until 1866. Since then he has
quickened the feet of two genera
tions of dancers.
In the old days he not only played
but called off the square dances, and
many times he made up a missing
set on the floor.
Een's banner year was in 1880,
when he played for 450 dances. Now,
however, the young people have a
notion they must have an orchestra,
grinding out the music, and, any
way, Een won't play for fox trotters
