The Cynle Say There Is, bat the Girl
Says No Looking; On at the Dane.
Ask the next sweetest younjr girl you meet
what happiness nemos beet to her, and I be
lieve the will say is waltzing.
She finds Strang pleasure la this fair mod'
era dance, let as presume. It fills her redni
with dreamy flowing of unsung poetry,
opens up vast vistas or gorgeous beauties,
crowds her senses with flowery fragrances,
and does it all to a delightful tune.
This is why the girl loves waltzing.
"Yes," says the gentleman at the other end
of the bar, as be lifts the crescent of lemon
peel out of bis cocktail, "and that is why I
love whisky. -It gets there.
There is bound to be cynicism of this sort
applied to the elegant exercise of waltzing so
long as the girls go round. While they con

You must understand that dancing has

formed an essential of religious worship. It

THB WALTS AKALTZEbT
Wbnn a man and a girl stand up before
seen other tor a waltz the sensations of each
cannot naturally be fairly defined by the
aim, critical spectator. To fully appreciate
the entire anticipations of the girl or the
complete conjectures of the man it might be
necessary to go back a year or so in the lives
. of both partners.
Suppose this pretty young woman had be
come engaged to the hated rival of this hand
some young man while the latter was away
ua Colorado! Suppose the young man knew
tt to be a case of parental tyranny and that
the gtrl was fluttering like a frightened dove
at this moment.
. . There is no need of going round the room
with them You miaa them, and you will
stake your life they are out in the conserva
Now, yon will readily admlbt I am sure,
that the waltz exerts an emotional and senti
mental influence upon its participants. And
In an Instance such as the above a good and
proper influence, perhaps.
TV"e will lnmagine ow two fine and healthy
young people of differing sexes about to
waits together, immediately after their first
meeting. She is about 19 years of age, talL
slender, dolicately curved, tinted with the
dainty hues of virginal purity, golden haired
and altogether exquudto to look upon. He Is
good rormed, strong and clean built young
fallow, with big, knowing eyes and a jolly
She rises from her place beside her mother
and yields borsolf np to her strange but re
' assuring partner. The young man dexter
ously wreathes his right arm around her
mall, soft waist.
At this juncture the cynic puts In his decla
ration that under the. deoent rule of things
toe young fellow in question couldn't get his
arm about the girl's waist lndde of six
months. And be could - only do it then by
proving to her that he had a good mind as
well as a good arm. The waltz has purified
an insult into a conventionality.
TUB WITCHERY OF IT ALL.
But to return to the young people, who are
now floating away over pink clouds like ser
aphs. In the young man's left hand rests the
right hand of the girl. There is really no
Cot the letter's satiny softness touched by
r of the man, for at this epoch of social
regulations they are both wearing gloves.
But there is the little thing, just as pretty as
a flower petal, and crushed, if you like, as
The girl slips slightly and utters a faint
little cry. Hot partner takes tighter hold of
her hand, laughs with her, and the waltx
reels on, the firmer grasp of hands not being
"Ah, hal" growls the cynic. "He couldnt
press her hand like that in lees than ten weeks
If It were not for this vulgarizing waltz."
To the maiden in her dance again 1 Her
fair, young head reaches up to such a point
on the young man as to bring the last fluffy
skeins of her golden hair just opposite his
lips. There U a perfume in thoso gleaming
coils not an artificial perfume, hut the rloh,
honest fragrance of cleanness and beauty.
The young man inhales gratefully this re
fined odor of hair.
"Why," puts in the cynic, "he wouldn't get
near enough to find that smell in three
months if society didnt give him the priv
ilege to steal it iu the cheap way he is doing."
If you have waltzed you will know. Let
us suppose you are a girl ; that your fight
cheek comes about four inches from the shirt
collar of your partner. Your neck, all lovely
witn a luminous sheen like moonlight. Is ex
actly under his gaze. If you are not as agile
as a lawn your knees are bound to bump
against his at irregular intervals. Should
tu room be crowded, as it usually is, you
and he are constantly coming into collision
with your gracious but massive companion
dancers. The effect is flustering, even if not
Let us return to the golden headed example
we took to commence with. There she sails
like a glad, mod fairy, supported by the will
ing arms of her silent partner. A sensuous
melody sighs from the arbor of ferns and
palms, the air grows heavier with light and
fragrance, there is a rushing torrent of happy
people flying by like revolving rainbows, the
floor heaves liko a rose strewn ocean and all
is glory, melody and Joy.
HERE IS TOE CLIMAX
Bang! The two excited people we have
been watching have danced into a sort of
Tortax of waJtzers. They have suddenly
been crushed hard against each other. The
young man's lips have been driven square
Into the girl's hair. He has clutched her
madly for support just as she has clutched
him, and as the crowd whirls away and
leaves them standing there free from danger,
the are dazed, palpitating, inflamed.
"Well, that sottles it I" cries the cynla
"This is where I leave. If they intend to
carry this thing any further than they have
already, I want to be where I can buy a
morning paper to read about the "'
Let's go out and blush 1"
But the dancers are away again, and all
seems sweet and just. "What an intertwining
of flying people I "What an array of arm en
circled waist That noiseless, solid con
cussions! And a never ending smile Is
wreathed in a. rapturous radiance from one
nd of the room to the other. The cynic and
his friend the moralist are out in the supper
room trying to blush, but the real, helpless,
beautiful blush Is on the faoe of the little
golden haired waltzer. She is just stopping,
with glad sigh of happiness, before her com
placent mamma. Her modest young eyes are
raised In grateful regret to the big ones of
the young man as ho lingeringly lets fail her
clinging fingers. The two have been ac
quainted during a matter uf ten minutes, but
it seems as if they had been friends for ever
so long. The waits has done so much for
them. He has seemed so strong, shesode
lickrasly swnet and confiding! When they
had collided out on the floor he had caught
her in a protecting embrace, which taught
her bow gallant he would undoubtedly be in
a railway accident And her hair had shone
near his eyes with a suulike effulgence, and
he had thought how dazzling it would look

The cynic was asking the moralist out in
the supper room if he could me any blush on

' Ate9Ilseef Htleac Tickets.
The passenger department of the Bar
lington road has issued strict instructions
to conductors and agents of the compa
ny in regard to honoring mileage tickets.
The circular roads:
"A ticket offered for the checking of
baggage or to a gatekeeper or brakeman
for the purpose of gaining ad miss iq to a
train is in fact offered for passage just as
much as when tendered to a conductor by
a passenger on a moving train. All em
ployea are directed to exercise great care
to accept these tickets only at the hands
of the original purchaser, and to that end
the conductors are instructed to require
the signature of the passenger each time
the ticket is presented, for comparison
with the original signature to the con
tract. A common mode of misusing
mileage is apparent when the coupons
of one mileage ticket are present
ed for passage with covers of an
other. When a mileage ticket Is pre
sented ia this way or if it has expired
oy limitation or is in improper hands or
when it bears evidence of fraudulent al -teration
the ticket must be lifted and
sent to the general passenger agent with
full report of the circumstances. In case
tickets are confiscated as above, assure
the passeifger (whose name and address
should be given) that if any Injustice has
been done it will be promptly remedied if
be will communicate with the general
passenger agent. This company has
suffered serious loss in revenue because
of the improper use of mileage tickets,
and while the above is not intended to
prompt employes to take them up with
out good reason it is necessary that all
who have the handling of these tickets
should be especially careful in handling

to the waiter of some of the things he bad
seen, and 1 overheard him say:
"Your theatres beat any blamed circus I
ever seen. 1 was at one the other night,
aud right in the most mterestin' part they
let down an oil pain tin' in front. Men got up
an' went out. I didn't know what it meant
till I looked at a piece of paper with the play
actors' names on it and seed that twenty-four
hours elapsed between acU 1 and 2. Then
I went out, too. Last uight at V o'clock I
went back there, just twenty-four hours later,
an' I'll begeehawed if they didn't commence
right where they left off the night before.
It's easy to see why they run them that
way. They make more money out of it,
'cause when a feller's seen the begiunin he

THE .0CK ISLAND RAPIDS.
The Rirt on the Lateral Canal In
I aa pert ant Iafbrcaatlosi mm f Opinion
at the llar ar Eiera la Chare
r the Hurray The Meat Feasible
A disps ten from Washington states
that the n port of the, board of engineer
officers of the examination and survey of
the present 'channel of the Mississippi
river at Rock Island rapids, made with a
view to it improvement, was laid before
the house yesterday afternoon.
The boa-d is of the opinion that the
most direct and feasible route coming
within the instructions for a canal from
the head of the rapids to the upper part
of Moline is in the river along the Illinois
shore. It vould be about 10 miles long
and former; as in the case of the Des
Moines caial. by embankments in the
river -with a width of from 200 to 800
feet and a depth at low water increasing
from 8 to 1 feet, having two locks 80
feet wide and 325 feet long. The length
of the rapk s from Rapids City to the
Rock Island railroad bridge is about 18$
miles, but between the Rock Island
and Illinois shore at the harbor of Mo
line and ool of the Moline Water
Power- ooopany, the conditions are
such as to prohibit the extension of the
canal along the water front of Moline,
and it becomes necessary, therefore, the
report says, to make two independent
canals conmxted by a section of the river,
in order to continue the. navigation to the
foot of the tapids.
The most direct and feasible route for
this part of the improvement would be
down the outside of Rock, and Benbam
islands. It would be about three miles
long and havo a width of from 200 to 800
feet, with one, and possibly two locks,
the river channel connecting the two
canals being deepened to six feet at
low water. This connecting channel
would open into the main channel of
the river aid permit the canal to be
used independently of the others and
afford an easy entrance to the harbor
of Moline. The total cost of the whole
of this improvement is placed at about
$4,000,000. But it being thought prac
ticable at a moderate cost, the report
says, to obviate the many difficulties
existing in the navigation of the rapids,
especially t render them naviga
ble at nigh:, the board presents the
plan of the local engineer .officer in
which the deiired improvement is to be
attained by guide piers with lights, and
day beacons attached, and, in addition,
to excavate a id remove the rock at vari
ous points so as to widen and straighten
the channel tt the crooked part of the
rapids; also to deepen the channel where
necessary; to build dams where required:
to equalize dope and to remove by
dredging the present accumulations of
sand and grsvel. It is estimated that
such a work would cost $330,000.
The report continuing says that the
board is adverse to the construction of a
lateral canal tt this time, and is of the
opinion that the existing navigable chan
nel of the Rock Island rapids should be
improved to sjch an extent as to make
the psssage over them as reasonably safe
by night or da?, as the natural conditions
The above plan (the second one men
tioned) which is recommended by the
board to accomplish this will furnish, the
report says, the relief immediately called
for in the interests of navigation.
Both the chief of engineers and the
secretary of wsr agree in the conclusions
of the board .
