"What harm is the e in dancing?" was
the theme of Rev. Mr. Marquis' evening
discourse at tfce Bro idway Piesbyterian
church vesterdav. Tbe announcement of
the subject brought out a congregation
that filled every available seat in the
house. Mr. Marquis alluded to the sub
iect in bis scripture selections for tbe
evening, and wnen the time came for the
sermon took his tex; from Rom. xii
'I bfspecli rnn tlii'reiore, brethren, by the
mcrcira of God, tht ye i lesi'lit your bodies s liv
acriuee holy arcepts'ile unto God, which It

Mr. Marquis said:
Paul wrote these words to a little hand

empire. Capital citirs are proverbially
uncongenial to the dt velopment of piety

1. IJecuue it endtngers the health of
the body. The hum id body needs four
things for its pro er development
wholesome food, wh desome air, whole
some work, and wholesome recreation.
Dancing, as an agent f physical develop
ment, must come uncer the last of these
if any where. But is it as commonly
practiced a recreation? Oo late hours,
late suppers, hcateri, dust ladened air.
excessive' bodily exercise and strong,
nervous t xeitemeni, conduce to the res

splendid color in their cheeks, the eneriry
of their movements and the sparkle ot

Do you sav other amusements nny
produce tbe 'same lebilitating results?
That only proves tha-. o'her amusements
as well as danciug endanger health. Do
vou say dancing may be carried on with
out any of these results? Grant it. But
it is not. And so w arraign the dance
of modern society as a form of dissipa
tion rather than recreation; and we
charge it with moie physical wrecKs
drasL'iug out weary days, more blighted
lives ami hopes, and more premature
deaths than any f irm of fashionable
amusement that can be named.
'2. Dancing also endangers the holi
ness of the body. Its tendency is lo de
file this temple of God. Here we put our
hand upon the pulse of its life. Here we
come face to face with that which has
made the church i:s enemy and the
world its friend. It ould bo cowardice
to t-peak on th:s theme, and not speak
plainly upon this point. Hut let it be
clearly understood, ;11 that is charged
upon the dance as at institution is not
charged upon every dancer. "We often
do in iguorunce that which wisdom bids
us quit." Many whese piety and purity
we would not think of questioning en
gage in the dance. It is about dancing
as an institution that we speak. This
then is the grave charge against the
modern society dancu. It is essentially
immodest, and therefore its tendency" is
to awaken that which is basest in tbe
human heart. This is not a new charge.
It is not the charge of the church alone.
Even Cicero defending a Roman consul
against what he calls the slander of being
a dancer, says:"Almost no one ever dan
ces who is sober, or is not a madman."
No one would accuse Lord Byron with
tieing a prude. But he has branded the
walt!as "thut endearing Waltz," "that
seductive wall.," "that not too lawfully
begotten waltz." a dejeul vice, warm not
wauton which whispers 'my slippery
paths are safest in th dark.'' Can any
christian think it safe to risk his own or
children's moral purity in an amusement
of which such things have been written
by the uugodly?
Wm. Cleaved Wilkinson, another lay
man says: "My accusation is that the
dance instead of affoiding an opportunity
for mutually ennobling companionship
between man and woman, inspired with
a chaste and sweet interfused remem
brance of their contrasted relationship to
each other, the darce instead of this
consists substantially of a system of
means, contrived witii more than human
ingenuity to excite tie instincts of sex to
action, however bii ' ile and disguised at
the moment, in its sequel the most bestial
and degrading. I charge that here and
not elsewhere in tbe anatomy of that
elusive fascination w lieh belongs so pe
culiarly to the dance, tbe scalpel is laid
upon the quivering secret of its life
Passion and nothing else, is tbe
true basis of the popularity of the dance."
Farther on he adds. "It is no accident
that the dance is what it is. It mingles
the 8 xes into such closeness of perso
nal approach aud contact as outside
of tbe dance is no where else tolerated
in respectable society It does this under
a complexity of circumstances which
consuire to heighten tbe impropriety of
it. It is evening, the hour is late, there
is delicious intoxication of music and
motion, perhaps of wine, in the blood.
There is tbe strange confused sense of
being individually un observed among so
many, while yet the natural "noble
shame" which guards tbe purity of man
and woman alone together, is absent
such is the occasion f nd still hour after
hour the dance whirls its giddy kaleido
scope around, bring hearts so near that
they almost beat aga nst each other, mix
ing the warm, muttal breaths, darting
the fine personal electricity between the
meeting fingers, flushing the lace ana
lighting the eyes with a quick language
subject often to gross misrepresentation
upon the part or the vile hearted wny
this fushionable amusement seems to me :
to have been in an unfriendly quarter.
usuallv conceived of as under us to give
our human passions leave to aisport
themselves, unreproved by conscience, by
reason or by shame, almost at their will."
Christiaos, can you read this faithful
picture of the "round dauces" and still
maintain that they do not endanger the
holiness of that body which you profess
to have consecrated unto the Lord?
This is not a false charge. Proof: The
development of tbe dance tends toward
more and more improper forms. The
"german" is a comparatively recent in
troduction, which grievously shocked
many regular habitues of the ball at first.
But, although "vice is a monster of such
frightful mien, as to be hated needs but
to be seen, yet seen too oft familiar with
bis face, we first endure, then pity, then
embrace." Our morning paper contained
a few mornings ago this salacious item:
"A new dance called the "Chow Chow"
has become popular. A portion of it
consists of a waltz in which you can hug
tbe four ladies in rotation." Chow Chow
indeed! Ought Christiana lo be found iu
that mix? Does the item not reflect the
thoughts that were in the mind of the
man who wrote it?
If this charge is not true, why do not
our ladies at their afternoon receptions,
where we gentlemen are so carefully ex
cluded that even tbe master of tbe house
must dodge in at the bbek door to get a
bite of supper, engage in their favorite
and fascinating dancing? Did you ever
bear of an old bachelor's ball, with tbe
ladies excluded? Why is it that this
amusement of all others must have both
sexes if this charge has not some truth?
3. Dancing is also a violation of
christian consistency. This exhortation
says "be not conformed to the world.'
The New Testament is full of such de
clarations. "Know ye not that the
friendship of the world is enmity with
God." "Love not the world." Christ
died that he might "deliver us from this
present evil world." "Pure religion and
undefiled before God and the Father is
this, to visit the widow and fatherless in
their affliction, and keep himself unspot
ted from the world." Therefore pure re
ligion and real charity will find some
other way to exercise itself than through
a chanty ball. For the dance is un
questionably a worldly amusement
Dancing is also inconsistent with the
vows which a christian takes upon enter
ing the church to renounce the world.
the flesh and the devil; to take the word
of God to be the rule of faith and prac
tice; to render obedience unto the auth
ority of the church aud to give himself
soul and body, time and talents, powers
and possessions unto the Lord." Why
even a dancing young man of the word
i-aid to me "I don't see how a christian
can dance after taking these vows, and I
don't see how the church can allow it.
Dancing is also inconsistent with tbe
modesty of manner and attire which arc
the beauty of real refinement and chris
tian character. It might be enjoyed with
out any violation of these points, but it is
not. From lime immemorial it has been
accompanied with extravagance, display
and a coarse spirit of vanity and ostenta
tion. Can you imagine anything much
more unbecoming in a modest, christian
woman than the weariug of tbe fashiona
ble decollete dtess? Four pictures in i
recent comic paper struck at this
cious fashion. Even the Corean
minis ter at Washington was shocked by it and
e asked if these ladies were the hired
dancers. Will anyone have the unblusn
ing hardihood to maintain that this cos
tume does not increase the moral dan
gers of the ball room?
Dancing is also inconsistent with
growth in christian character. Lise
plants subjected to reimated frosts, thous
anils are spiritually killed, and those who
are not, bear few flowers or fruits. "She
that liveth in pleasure is dead while she
liveth." Dancers are also i. con
sistent in their res rictions upon minis
ters. If there is no harm in it, why do
they conclude that it is wrong for the
minister? Why is he never invited to be
a flior manager? Vhy does etiquette
demand that dancing shall be postponed
at a party until he discreetly takes his de
parture? If there is harm in it for him
is there not also for his Sunday s -liool
teachers and members?
Dancing is inconsistent with a chris
tian s influence, some christian young
ladies, wives and mothers make thi. con
ces.iion to the world in the honest effort
to bring brothers, husbands and friends
to Christ. I have yet to see tbe first in
stance in which it was successful, while I
have seen many in which it resulted dis
astrously to those who made tbe conces
sion. Tbe religion that has power is not
the religion of concession or of the ball
Dancing is also inconsistent with chris
tian charity, which requires that we have
regard for tbe souls of others. Jesus
"pleased not himself." They who would
oe counted bis disciples must "take up
the cross, deny self and follow Him.'
People argue, "patrouize the ball for
charity's sake." Is there no such thing
as charity for souls as well as bodies?
Which is the most Christ like, charity to
insist on going to the ball, and running
all the risk of receiving spiritual barm
and doing harm, for the sake of contrib
uting perhaps $1 50 out of $2.50 to tbe
hospital, or to remain away from the ball
for fear you will receive and do spiritual
barm, and send tbe whole of your $2.50
to the hospital? If the dancing citizens
of Rock Island want to exhibit Borne zeal
for the hospital, let them go to Mitchell
& Lynde's bank and sign those proposis
tions which I have written out and
I commend the ladies who have been
carrying on this institution. I pity them
in the burden they bear. While I differ
emphatically in regard to this method of
raising money, I sympathize with the ob
ject. Hence these propositions which are
not made in any spirit of bravado, but in
good faith. If Ruck Island has the en
terprise she wants the outside world to
think she has, she will not let them fail.
Now that these views which I have ad
vanced are not the views of the Presby
terian church alone, let tbe following
testimonies witness. The plenary coun
cil of the Catholic church in the United
S'a'es says in a pastoral letter issued at
Baltimore in 1860: "Tbe fashionable
dances as at present carried on are re
volting to every feeling of delicacy and
propriety, and ere fraught with the
greatest danger to morals."
Bishop Hopkins, of the Episcopal
church, said: "No ingenuity can make
it (dancing) consistent with the covenant
Bishop Meade, of Virginia, also aq
Episcopalian, said: "It is in itself
wrong, improper and of bad effect"
Bishop Mcllvaine, Episcopalian, refer
ring to the theatre and dance: "The only
line I would draw in regard to these is
that of entire exclusion."
Tbe "general rules" of the Methodist
church prohibit dancing.
The general assembly of tbe Presbyter
ian church has . repeatedly condemned
dancing. - -
Therefore the session of the Broadway
church has passed tbe following resolu
tion: "We, the members of the session of
this church, believing that participation
in the fashionable dances of modern so
ciety, especially the so-called 'round
dances,' endanger christian character,
damage christian influence" and bring
dishonor upon the same and cause of
unrtsi, ao anecjtonateiy ana earnestly

abstain from participation in these
dances, rrom giving parties woere iuey
