To say that the old-fashioned dance
was a delight to every onlooker is but \
faintly to describe It. With It are linked
so many delightful memories that the
evolutions of the ladles and gentlemen
of the court gave, point to many a sug
The minuet was the first ball dance
which had a really world-wide popu
larity. It is a slow, dignified dance, an
appropriate product of the time and
place of Its birth. It la very old. When
Don Juan d'Austrla went Incognito from
Brussels to Paris nothing he saw dur
ing hlB famous trip excited his admira
tion half so much a? the grace with
which the beautiful Margaret of Bur
gundy danced the minuet. Other beaux
and titled dandies of the same period
also put in writing flattering allusions
to the beauties of the dance. Neverthe
less, It Is exceedingly doubtful that the
minuet of those times was the model of
the minuet of today.
The minuet, which in recent years has
reappeared In the salons of fashion, waa
evolved from the "Minuet of the Queen,"
which, In turn, was adapted from a much
older measure by the French ballet mas
ter, Gardel, for the celebration of th.;
marriage of Louis XVI, the dance itself
being named In honor of Marie Antoin
The minuet Is the only dance which
preserves the courtjy dignity of the old
regime, and therefore has ever been re
garded as the most aristocratic of
dances. The most popular of minuet
music Is from the first finale of Mozart's
"Don Juan," part of which was played
last night, this being the model of all
other musk- to which the minuet hat
been danced In recent years.
The greatest and most dignified have
been proud to walk through a minuet.
That most distinguished gentleman and
patriot, George Washington, was an
accomplished minuet dancer, and so
wsa Benjamin Franklin.
In the rendition Of the music last night
the measure changed to the lighter
theme of Bocherlni. As the band struck
the old Fiesta strains of Roncovier's
March of 1896 the procession of the
French court passed back to the throne
of her majesty and placed themselves
in position to see the maskers..
The following command of her ma
jesty was next voiced by the prime
"Our most gracious majesty commands
me to state to you, she has seen before
her many forms which are indicative to
her mind that among you Is great beauty,
much grace and stalwart manhood. She
Is weary with looking upon that which
conceals the identity of these merry
niaskers and order one and all to come
before her royal presence, removing
these mysteries, that she may gaze upon
your countenances and in truth know
her loyal subjects."
In obedience to the royal command all
masks were removed, and friends who
had successfully hidden their identity,
bad much amusement In greeting those
MEMBERS OF THE COURT
The grand march was taken up and
then one gained a close view of the odd
and curious costumes. The ladies of
the court were gowned in historic dress
cf the time of Louis XIV., the pictur
esque time of the French court, with the
panicre, short skirts, powder and patches
of that day and age.
The dresses were of the richest fab
rics repeated In the most beautiful and
effective colors. All the court carried
white pompadour canes, with fluttering
ribbons to match the color of the dresses.
Small silver fans, powdered hair, patch
es, high heeled slippers and other de
tails of the French court dress, were
carried out both charmingly and effec

THE MASKERS' REVELRY
Rich Costumes and Some Odd Com
The queen and her court gased upon
anachronism and funny combinations of
people and things last night, that
amounted to absolute Indiscretion at
times. Courtiers to George 111 were
dancing with extremely fln-de-alecle
flower girls; Mephlsto whispered soft
nothings Into the ear of a demure and
pious nun; Gretchen hobnobbed with
Punchinello; a Chinese mandarin led the
belle of the ball, a dainty French shep
herdess, up to the punch bowl, and Car
men smiled upon Falstaff without seri -
ous result, and the yellow' kid showed
unexpected but Irrepressible affection
for a dainty American beauty rose; but
when a colonel of the United States army
launched out into a deux-temps With
Otero, and Uncle Sam himself boldly
engaged In the open enjoyment of a
dance with little Egypt, the queen called
a halt and the signal for unmasking was
given. Among the large numbers of
maskers on the floor were the following,
whose costumes, for one reason or an
other, were particularly worthy of no
tice. All were handsome, most of them
accurate and many unique.

INDIAN FIRE DANCERS
TA-TA-WEELA AND PATADA IN
The Effect of the Fire Dance Spoiled
by Poor Lighting and an
The opening attraction of the festivi
ties of the week occurred in the Indian
dances at the tribunes yesterday after
noon. The women wore wreaths made
of green willow on their heads, gay col
ored sashes across the left shoulder and
their faces were elaborately ornamented
with red paint,, though it was not ap
plied in Just the right spots to be consid
ered a la mode.
The men were naked to the waist, but
were so thickly covered with red, white
and blue paint in stripes, rings and fan
tastic shape; very little of the brown
skin was visible. Their trousers wero
white cotton and the Fiesta colors were
prominent In breech cloth's and sashes.
Chief Sylvester was exceptionally re
splendent in a pair of bloomers made of
large squares of cloth In red, orange and
green. The crowning glory of the suit
was the elaborate headdress made of
eagle feathers and so arranged that they
blew about in the wind gracefully, with
out disarranging the structure.
Shortly after 2 oc.lq.ck they formed In
line and marched solemnly Into the en
closure, and after circling around sev
eral times formed in position for the
ta-ta-weela dance. This was essential
ly the same as the one given the night
of their arrival, except that It was more
ceremonious and given In greater de
tail. Preceding Chief Sylvester, who
came running Into the circle, was a her
ald, announcing the approach of tho
dancer in the queer gutteral sounds of
the Indian. Before the dance began the
chief made a supplication, asking the
bles-lng of the Great Spirit on the per
foi ...ance of the afternoon, while the
others stood reveiently attentive. After
Sylvester's dance was finished Jose
Burro put on the eagle feather dress and
performed some curious bodily contor
tions on his knees, and extra evolution",
presumably to show his superior skill
as a dancer. The chant that accompa
nied the dance sounded like a repetition
of the syllables honea-ne-pa, with little
variation of tone.
The second dance, the patada, was
somewhat less elaborate than the first,
and evidently less serious. The women
seated themselves on the ground and
the men marched around in single file
with a double quickstep with a halt ba
tween, to the singing of the women. The
tone was more shrill than the first chant,
the syllables sounding like repetitions
of nl-hl-hl. They marched and hopped
In a stooping posture and after going
through several evolutions which'were
most of the time accompanied by gut
teral sounds, stopped, good humoredly
at a signal from' the leader.
This concluded the performance of the
afternoon, after which they were taken
to their camp in a special street car by
THE EVENING PERFORMANCE
There was an audience of probably
seven or eight hundred people present
at the evening dances, which had been
advertised to far exceed in Interest those
of the afternoon. The Indians faith
fully carried out their part of the pro
gram, but the affair was so badly man
aged that It turned out to be almost a
failure, and the crowd went home dis
gusted. At the gate people holding tick
ets were allowed to enter, and were then
told that they, must push through the
crowd to the box office outside to secure
The tribunes were so poorly light
ed that it required unusually good
eyesight to determine at times
whether the performers were moving or
standing still. A large fire was burning
in the rear of the dancers, preparatory
to the fire dance. When the Indians oc
casionally flitted in front of the Jight
those who had seen the afternoon per
formance could discern that the pre
liminary preparations for that cere
mony very nearly resembled the ta-ta
vveela and patada, . previously given
As the wood burned down and the light
grew brighter the Indians circled
around it. the women chanting in mono
tone and the men keeping time with
their gutteral groans or grunts, in uni
By this time the unruly small
boy and the people who can never keep
their scats when they should began tr

off the view of these in the seats. The
crowd shouted "down in front," "stand
back," etc , singly and In unison, but all
to no purpose. The police made a few
ineffectual attempts to force the intrud
ers back, and then weakly gave it up.
and the balance of the performance was
lost to thoße who had kept their seats
When the crowd pressed too closely
