QriNt'Y Herald: Some democratic
politicians at SpringtieM seem dis
inclined to encourage the movement
against the various tate treasurers
to recover interest received by them
on public funds and appropriated to
their own purposes. It will be poor
politics for the democratic party if
the promised prosecutions are al
lowed to lag. The governor and his
subordinates and democrats in the
assembly should exercise all their
powers to compel a restitution of
moneys thus illegally appropriated.
f the prosecution of suits is allowed
to drop or they are not pushed with
Yijjor. the voters will insist on know

easily satisfied with explanations.
On With the Iance."
The town of Lithornia. (Ja., ac-!
cording to the New York World, has
recently been deeply agitated over
the question of a military ball. So
fierce was the conflict between the
pleasure loving and the puritanical
part of the community that an in
junction was applied for by the
prayer meeting people to restrain the
projectors of the entertainment from
carrying out their plans.
But the judge decided that the
matter had gone too far. "The
young ladies have been to a great
deal of trouble," said he, "in prepar
ing their dresses, with all the fancy
fixing knovtn to young ladies; and
the young men have bought swallow
tailed coats, low-cut vests and fancy
bosomed shirts, and it would beim
proper for me to stop the dance at
this critical period. Then, again,"
he added, "if I were to stop this ball
it might break up several weddings,
and the most serious consequences
might follow. I feel it my duty to
say 'On with the dance!'" And the
Springfield Register adds:
This is true ground. There is
nothing like the magical influence
which results from the mingling in
the merry dance of young people
whose loves are unfolded like the
leaves of a rosebud, eager for the
kiss of the sun and the balm of the
dew. If the ardent swain cannot
stammer out his proKsal on such an
occasion he is a hopeless booby. The
Georgia judge is a Daniel come to
judgment. On with the dance!
Choose your partners!
That judge might have saved St.
Luke's hospital had he resided here a
few years ago.

Give me your list now, if you want
to," said Miss Gardner, stopping her
writing suddenly and looking up im
patiently. She was making out invitations to a
tea which she intended to give, and
looked hot aud cross. Bob drew atinv
piece of paper from his pocket, ap
proached his sister cautiously, handed
her the paper and retreated to his
armchair. Once more seated he re
sumed his cigar, and in a half amused,
half curious way watclied his sister at
tentively. Slip scuffled her feet a great
deal and screwed her mouth into all
possible shapes as she read the names
to herself, thereby affording Bob tire
greatest delight, for he liked to tease
his sister because she got angty so
"Miss ShepafJ!" sua exclaimed sud
denly, turning and glaring at Bob.
"Why, Bob." she went on impatiently.
"I tlioughryou hated Miss Shepard!
You are always as rude to her as you
can possible be. You would rather do
anything than dance with her at a
party. Ycu say horrid Tilings about
her. and here you've put her down on
your list. I had left her o;T mine be
cause I thought you hated her so."
Miss Gardner paused to give her
brother a chance to get in a word, a
thing she seldom did, it seemed to

she ought to come. It strikes me that
it is rather hasty of you to leave her

"May Shepard is an awful nice girl,
a thing which you may have heard me
say about a thousand times before!"
exclaimed Helen, throwing down her
pen and getting ready for a tijrht. "Bob
Gardner, you are the most utterly in
consistent creature! There doesn't
seem to be the slightest ue in talking
to you." Bob tried at this point to
sav "Xo," but his sister had the floor.
"What do you want her here now for?
Just to be as disagreeable to her as
as you can? I don't believe she'd come,
anj'way, because she must want to
keep out of the way of such a rude,
sublimely conceited "

"I shall invite her. too; and if you
don't treat her decently you'll wish

"Hadn't been for who?"
Helen sat down to write the ad
dresses on her list. Bob snio'.ed his
cigar in silence, with a sati.-die-J smite
on his face, as though he had attained
success in some cherished project. then
put on his hat and coat and started
out. Helen wanted to tell him that it
was time for luuch, but did not. un
der the circumstances, think it best
to lower herself to do so. m Bob
probably didn't get any.
A week later came the tea one of
the ghastliest ordeals imaginable for
Bob. A word with everybody, a sen
tence with nobody; a bewildering sea
of black coats, on the -shores of which
were several, excited girls serving
sherbet, chocolate and tea. and all the
time smiling, laughing, frowning at
the solid wall of human beings around
them. By great exertion Bob man
aged to pierce his way to a table more
crowded than the others., where a
slight, pretty girl, with blue eyes and
light brown hair, was serving choco
late. "Do vou need anything. Miss Shep
ard?" lie asked in a low tone, bending
down over her.
"No. thanks; one of the other wait
ers is getting things for me," she said
Bob wisely ignored the compliment,
nearlv cracked his cheeks trying to
6mile and finding a chair near the
wall drew it up and began talking to
Miss Shepard, who seemed to pay very
little attention to him.
"Aren't you t-ired of pouring out?"
he asked at length, after ho had seen
several quarts disappear. "Helen said
she would send some to relieve you
"Yes, I wish she would; I need re
lief." replied Miss Shepard.
This looked encouraging, but Bob
was more or less used to it.' Besides,
as his sisJr hinted, he was eonceited.
so that Miss Shepard's last remark had
no perceptible effect on him. A min
ute later another girl was brought by
Miss Gardner to attend to the choco
late, and Bob walked away with Miss
Shepard. They passed through the
dining-room slowly and into the con
servatory, which was just now vacant
and lighted very dimly by the sunset,
but the bum from the other room filled
"Well?" said Miss Shepard, sitting
down hard in the chair he gave her.
Bob tried to say something and
"Nice weather we're having, Mr.
Gardner," she said, half derisively.
This observation does not always kill
conversation, tor on tnis occasion it
gave Bob's mind the little start it
needed. "I haven't seen you for some
"No; I noticed you took particular
pains not to see me on the street yes
terday," said Bob.
"I didn't know you were anywhere
around were you?"
Bob did not answer. He could hard
ly feel that the conversation had been
a success so far.
"1 want to have a serious talk with
you." he said solemnly.
"Why, I hope I always talk serious
ly. But go on. I am dying to hear
you say something. .
"Will you tell me, if you can," he
went on, "why 1 don't gel along bet

Miss Shepard in rai her a disgusted
tone, for she really did not know very
well. "I've never heart! anv" girl say
anything about you one way or the
other, out I've known Heieu so long
that perhaps they wouldn't say any
thing to me on thai account. How
can you tell that they don't like you?"
"Well I don't know for various
reasons," replied Bob.
"I guess the trouble is that tiiev

know that a person's self-esteem is
