Dangers of the dance. SHE CHURCH AND THE I'OPU- LiAR AMI'SEMEXT. Btv. T. T. Christian Preaches on the 81ns Resulting from the Fascinating Wait*—Why Dancing la Wrong— Evil Tendencies and the Stand Diner* ent %hurchei Have Taken In Regard to It. Trinity Methodist Episcopal Church Was crowded yesterday morning. The Subject of the pastor. Rev. T. T. Chris tian, was “Dancing.” He said: “I have not selected this amusement because it is generally participated in by cur church, lor it is not. Nor have I chosen it because it is more palpably worldly or obviously inconsistent with a Christian profession than others. There are many who are guilty of con duct more hurtful and damaging than danoing, as for example those who indulge in Sabbath-breaking, drinking, evil-speaking,raffling and gam bling. But it is not a little thing, anil our church and all other Christian churches regard it as a great hindrance to spirit ual life and to the salvation of the soul. “So popular and intensely fascinating is dancing to young people that an evening jiartv or an anniversary,an excursion, and sometimes a Sunday school picnic is con •idered exceedingly dull without it. In lact, everything but a funeral. It is the lavorite stimulant of the worldly. The Wine bibber does not feel more disap pointed at missing the decanter than Ihev do in tailing to meet the expooted exhilaration ot the dance. If it be a trifling thing, why is it that some pro fessing Christians reiuse to relinquish it? when it is smitten by tbe Word a loud note of dissatisfaction is ftearcHat unlike that of the craltsmen of Ephesus, who, when being in danger of losing their gains, cried out: ‘Great is Diana of tbe Epnesians!’ AS A FAMILY AMUSEMENT. question is asked, ‘W uat harm Is in dancing as a tamlly amuse luenif’ First, there is very little of this done. Somehow, brothers "and sisters do not care to dance together, as a rule. A young lady requested me to rais ■ this question, ‘Why does a young man like to nance with somebody else’s sisters, but Objects to otber young men dancing with Lis sister?’ lam asked. ‘Where is tbe harm if the party embraces only a few Visitors from neighboring households?’ "We answer, we objeot to the domestic dance not because it is intrinsic ®lly wrong, but because of Us ■direct tendency to excite In the young a strong desire for tne fascination of gayer and larger assemblies. WHAT IS TUE HAKM? “Inherently there is no more harm in moving one set of muscles to the sound of music in tbe parlor dance than in using another set in shuffling,cutting and deal ing painted paper in a family game of cards. Neither cau it besaiu to tie immoral In itself; but we object lo Both because of their unavoidable con Lections and dangerous tendenc.es." To show that the Methodist Church does not stand alone it its to position to dancing tbe s;>eset qut*ia I? m Bishop Mcllvaine, an Episcopalian, and promi nent divines of ifteo denomination*. Dr. Adam Clark aaffi: -1 know it is ev The speaker argued Thai the ball rooms are graduating a generation,of which one sex will not be capable of managing pub lic affairs and tbe other * ; i '•<- unfitted to properly conduct dc-mesue sflsira. No sanction is found in due Bioin lor tbe ftooial dance, and no instance* are men tion in ft in whiek the tw o sexes united in the exercise either as an act of worship or amusemeDf. ITS EVIL TEXPEXCIKs. Proceeding the speaker said: “Has it pot led many to ruin' I would blusi to repeat what was said in a New York paper not long ago as to the effect of ibis amusement. As the love ot dancing in creases the love ot religion decreases. Parlor (lancing leads to ungodly balls. And how can a Christian pray, ‘Lead me tot into temptation,’ and rusn into tbu midst of tbe dance with Its artfully ar ranged pantomime, the turns, tbe touch. Ing passe%the advance and retreat, toe ©ft repeated grasp and especially in the swimming waltz performed in each ether’s embrace! W hat real difference is a young couple ©I sex gliding over ft waxed floor to the sound of music in each others embrace and sitting down as near as possible in the same relative po sition y WOULD NOT BE TOLERATED. “Yet one would not be tolerated and the other is. Let the deluded father ftud mother who persist in educating their sons and daughters in this dan gerous amusement remember that Into whatever excesses and nine ‘ ibey may tall through this perilous adventure God will hold them accountable at the great day. You nae, beloved, why the Methodist Church Is Opposed to dancing. We love our young people, and as faithful sbepherds we would save them from the dangers to Which them are exposed. Were we to wiuk at tuts worldliness and hush our warning voice as u church we mignt pave your names and smiles, but We Would damn your souls.” THROUGH THE CITY.

Mr. Louis Kneller spent yesterday in Savannah anxiously making inquiries for his 12-year-old son Bertram. Last Thursday Mr. Kneller and his family took passage on the steamer Katie, as tney were moving to Lawtouville, S. C. Just before the boat started the lad was sent to Connor’s book store to get a book. He was told that if the Katie left before he got back he was to follow on tbe Ethel, which was to leave in the after noon. A colored boy was left to accom pany him, and when Bertram returned to the wharf the Katie had gone. He ac cordingly got ou the Ethel and made the acquaintance of a gentleman, who took the lad into his stateroom at night. The next morning Bertram got up about 6 o’clock and wandered about over the steamer. He stopped at the engine-room, and talked for some time with Ned Ram say, .the engineer. That was the last seen of him, but ae was not missed until 8 o’clock, when the colored hoy began searching the boat for him. The lather, who got off at Bostick’s landing, waited there until the Ethel came up. When he found that his son was not on board he started back down the river, inquiring at. every landing. Nowhere could he find any trace ot the boy, and Mr. Kneller came on to Savan nah, where he arrived Saturday night, but he heard nothing of his son here. It is supposed that the lad fell overboard and was drowned. Mr. Kneller was in the employ of the Savannah Guano Company for six years, and more recently was with the Savan nah, Florida and Western Railway Com pany. WRECKED NEAR JiSSUP. The Rear Section of a Freight Traiu Runs Into the Forward Section. Early yesterday morning the second section of a south bound freight train on the Savannah, Florida and Western rail way ran into the rear part of the first section at the 66 mile post. The place is near Dale's mill, about nine miles south of Jesup. • It appears that the first section had not been able to get up the grade at that point and had stopped and run back in order to get good headway. About the time it stopped to start ahead again the second section came up behind and smashed into it. Three or four box cars were wrecked and the engine of the sec ond section was bsdly damaged. The engineer and fireman escaped by jumping. None of the trainmen were much hurt, Dut a trarup, wlio was steal ing a ride on tbe first section, was picked up in the wreck. An adult’s dose of stimulant was administered to the tramp and he revived, when it was found that no bones were broken. The morning trams were delayed by the block on the track, and the Albany express, due here at 5:30 a. m., did not arrive until about 11 o’clock. THE SOLDIER CITIZEN. Dr. Bacon’s Sermon on Th(i Majjis trate Beaiing the Sword. Rsv, Dr. Leonard W. Bacon, of the In dependent I’rssbyterian Cnurch,preached last night on the subject of the Magis trate bearing tho Sword, or the Soldier Citizen. It was a clear, convincing sermon, and one to interest every patriotic citizen, es pecially those who have nitherto been more or less Indifferent to their political and martial duties. It wouid be difficult to find a more fitting and interesting topic on the eve of the annual celebra tion of Washington’s birthday. By request the sermon will be re peated on Wednesday evening at the same place, when the Governor and his staff are expected to be present. BASE BALL NEWS.

Mr. C. B. Laiiatte, Grand Master of the I. O. O. F. of Georgia, has been in Savannah several days visiting the lodge* here In his official capacity. In con versation with a former pupil oi bis, now a resident of this city, but a native of Talbotton, Mr. LaHatte stated that he had received within a day or two several letter* from citizens of Columbus, Tal* botton and Hamilton, muking inquiries about J. T. Whitehead, who claims to represent the Globe Reserve Mutual Lite Insurance Company, of Baltimore, Old. BS’.t appears that Whitehead knew Mr. LaHatte in Galuesville, Ga., and is us ing his name to aid in securing prem iums for life insurance policies. Mr. LaHatte understands that Whitehead is representing that be, among otber citi zens, has paid for and received a policy through him. He says that he never re ceived or paid for a policy from White bead, and that tho use of bis name is without his authority.

ALEXANDER’S BOOK. On Railway Practice, Its Frinui* pics and Suggested Reforms. Some quotations were made last week in the Morning News from a brief treatise entitled: “Railway Fractice, Its Principles and Suggested Reforms Re viewed,” by E. Porter Alexander. Ex cluding tne newspapers, the railroad lit erature of this country is not volumi nous. Much of what there is comes ironi non-railroad men, who are in a general sense theorists. Charles Francis Adams, Jr., is an exception, and Gen. Alexander, President of tbe Central Railroad aud Banking Company, is another. What a railroad mtu has to suggest ou tne subject of reform in railway practice is per se more interest ing than something from a pure theorist who has had no experience iii dealing with transportation problems, and wbo-e suggestions are wholly based upon ob servution. • Although it has just been published it is apparent that tho sketch was written several months ago, before tbe author’s election to tne Presidency of the Central. Beiore discussing any proposed jilans of reform, Gen. Alexan der briefly but very clearly and concisely deals with tho oost of ser vice, discriminations, short versus long hauls, aud pools. He argues that rail way tariffs must be based upon value of service rendered, rather than the actual cost, the tariff to be limited by a reason able profit upon cost of service aud in vestment employed. On the subject of pools, Gon. Alexan der takes the grouud that the pool is a much better arrangement for both the shipper and the railroad than the public generally believes. As showing that the charge of extortion cannot be maintained against the pooling system the average freight rate per ton per mile for three years is given. For 1885 it was 1.067 c, against 1.124 c for 1884 and 1.240 for 1883, a decrease ol about 20 per cent, in the three years. The author says that he believes the pool has come to stay. If It fails, he thinks consolidation must be the inevita ble result. Governmental ownership of the railroads is objected to, and good reasons are given against it. The writer believes that the growing power of tbe press, the jealousy of the average voter and the constitutional limitations are sufficient to hold the railroad corpora tions in cheek. Prof. Ely and Mr. Hud son are set one against the other, aud the theories of both as to reiorms are sharply criticised. In conclusion, Gen. Alexander insists that the present system (be wrote before tbe passage of tne interstate commerce bill) is a very good one, that the country has prospered under it aud that it has had a measure of suocess sufficient to warrant some confidence and further trial. The writer’s disoussion of the railroad problem ought to be interesting alike to railway men and tbe general public. The points are well brought out, and tho whole work is a remarkable condensa tion of facts and arguments. It is publlsued by G. F. l’utnam’s Sons, New York. GENERAL RAILWAY NEWS. S,, F. and W.’s Proposition Tor a New Florida Connection. Monticello and Tallahassee have been trying tor a long time to get a railroad connection with the Savannah, Florida and Western railway at Thomasville or some other pointequally as advantageous to them, Tney are willing, doubtless, to render whatever assistance thev can to ward securing such a connection. At last a chance is offered them lo secure what they want. The Savannah, Florida and Western railway offers to build, equip and operate a branch line to either Monticello or Tallahassee on condition that a road is graded to the Georgia line. If Monticello should accept the condition she would have to grade about ten miles of road, and if Tallahassee, were to accept It she would bo required to grade about twenty five miles. The proposition has not yet been laid before the people of either Monticello or Tallahassee, but it will be in a day or two. The Savaunah, Florida and West ern is in earnest about the matter, and is apparently ready to go ahead with the road at once if its proposition is accepted. Railroad Clatter. The annual meeting of the stockholders of the Coast Line Railroad Company will be held at the company’s office ou Bolton street on Wednesday March 2. The New York Star quotes an insider in Richmond Terminal as saying: “Thereis no truth in the report that Richmond Ter minal will issue new stock to take up the East Tennessee securities. If any new stock is issued it will be to buy Georgia Central, which purchase is r.ow in con templation.” Florida tourists are pushmg the rail roads leading to that State to find suffi cient accommodations for them now. Trains on the Coast Hue and Savannah, Florida and Western railway are now Crowded to their utmost capacity. The management of the latter road says that the tourist business is booming.

Keep a Good Lookout for the Ink Fiend. Tbe fools are not all dead yet, and no matter how often the confidence game is played, or how publicly it is exposed, there are always willing victims to be found ready for the sacrifice. Savannau, like other places, has not been exempt from the infliction, and yet her experience lias neither brought wis dom nor engendered caution. When she got bit she merely felt for a time bitter, aud swore in the bitterest sort of a female swear that she’d never be caught again. Not she! too old a bird to be inveigled into a trap, but, ilke sea sickness or child-bearing, she forgot all about it within the interstices of a single moon, and lell again, and again got caught, and 6Wore, and kept getting caught, and still continues, notwith standing all her heroic resolutions and vacillating determination, a victim. About ten days ago a very natty-look ing youth, with a modest demeanor, a stovepipe hat and drummer-looking countenance, invaded the business premises of every mercantile firm in the city, mine amongst the rest. He was dressed up either to kill or to conquer, and looked as if he had been ireshly turned out of some ready-made clothing establishment for advertisement purposes. His style was good, if not at tractive—neither too book-agenty nor pre sumptuous—besides, he displayed none ot the paraphernalia (the petite satchel) so suggestive of speoiacle venders, corn cutters, bunion eradicators or peripa tetic medicine men to awaken distrust. Here was no protrusion of a book or a petticoat, or a mlzeti staysail or pair ol captivating hazel eyes on a celluloid baok-ground, with ruination trimmings, to lure you to subscriptions or destruc tion, but simplv a well-got-up youth of probably 22 or 23 healthy summers, whose mission might be business—real estate, puts and calls, cotton futures or Cen trals. Alasl the delusion vanished, when,like Mrs. Partington, ho opened his mouth “and put his loot In it,” lor he talked nothing but ink; his expectorations and perorations were ink. Their establish ment, the great “Century Ink” manufac tory, beat anything in creation for mag nitude. Arnold’s ink was ignoble black ing compared to their inimitable glossy atratentum. The tellow got classic, and the Ink tiehd sppead himself like Watter son on an editorial bust until my brain got into an F.disonian cloud, and Ben Butler, Eli Ferkins, Siraou Cameron, and the ghost of Logan appeared before me upon the walls all around about aud above in unmistakabio silhouettes, and the fiend waxed fat and eloquent upon ink, wbile the tortured wretch who listened, to preserve himself from paraly sis, had to fortity his nerves by taking a pull at some medicine or other which was labeled quinine, but had a very sus picious flavor of Hennessy. With a je ne sais quoi sort of an air he informed us that this great firm had their headquarters in Poughkeepsie, and had determined, even at the cost of several hundred thousand dollars, to secure the entire trade of the South, and for this purpose they would give gratis to everv merchant, banker and storekeeper throughout the South a quart bottle of their unsurpassing fluid. He had already arranged with Messrs. Cooper <fc Cos., Frotwell & Nichols and Byck & Selig to sell their “Century Ink,” and to make easy work for their agents he took this method of drumming up the fluid—the price at the agents would be 75c.—but lor this sample quart there would be no charge whatever, unless, indeed, the cost of ex pressage, which would be merely a nomi nal sum,only a tew cents, something about a quarter—at any rate not more than 30c. or 35c. This seductive douceur is to popularize tbe ink, and will be to our firm less expensive and more effective than advertising all over the Union. Well, Mr. Editor, to get rid of this very plausible and seductive youth who man aged to rope you in without either the ac cessories ot petticoats, languishing looks or cerulean eyes to attract or excuse, and considering that at the most but 30c. or 350. were involved, 1 gave him my card, signed my sign manual, and in the most polite manner possible bade him goodby, wishing him, sotto voce, at the d—l. ****** The magnificent gratuity of the Cen tury ink man has come to hand? The bottle has all the longitudinal ap pearance ' and capacity of those Vichy jugs one may pick up at any time at the hack gates of pretentious residences where matutinal revivers are required. The size seems all right, but there is a suspicious, seedy look about both it and the individual who brings it, and requires 35c. for expressage, so much so that I made him sign his name across the label. It is exceeding Frencuy Stiee-han. Xnere is an attempt at wax, with a thumb im pression, and tho label is both tawdry and Bowery-like, ami looks as if it had been feloniously abstracted from some other bottle. The tout ensemble is any thing but reputable or mercantile. There was no difficulty in drawing the abortion ol a cork, and having cleaned out all my inkeries to introduce the cen tury—there came—who was the fellow tbatiuventeffink? —shade of Flu to! Ghost of Caperarius! there came, with that rivuletio sound that charms the ear, a delightful ( ?) flow ol—none of your black looking stutt—pure, genuine, undiluted, unadulterated aqua—and nothing more— this and nothing else, nothing more. No amount of shaking could raise even the color or suspicion of ink—all was wator, water, water. Thank heaven, there are some hundreds of my fellow citizens in the same box—or I sus>pose so—and we can therefore afford to laugh or be laughed at. Let me, how ever, suggest to this fraud, who hails lrom Foughkeepsie, to chango the name of his fluid to that of “THK ARTESIAN INK.” Faijl Fry. PEOPLE WHO HELIEVE IN OMEN3. Signs of 111 Luck.

There is a good installDiealol Floridians always registered there.” Fashion Notes. Collars of dresses grow higher and higher. Heliotrope and suede is a much ad mired combination. Tbe Marie Antoinette coiffure, a rather loose arrangement of the hair, is mueh in vogue. Tbe newest bottles for aromatic salts are made of antique silver, chased in Etruscan designs. It is needless to say that coiffures, bon nets and hat crowns all remain high*, without exception. It is predicted that ootton dress goods will be the most fashionable material tor the oomiag summer. Ivory white satin Duchesse (or fronts and panels has a self-colored brocaded design of ostrich plumes. Morning and afternoon gloves come in from tour to six-button lengths; evening gloves from fifteen to thirty. The new high-crowned, close-front hats or caps worn by little girls this win ter take tne lead of ail headwear for small people. Old silver jewels of exquisite workman ship are all tbe rage just now in Faris. Tnere are bracelets, brooches, olasps for mantles and jackets, watoh-ebains and beautiful chatelaines, with three or five chains, and an ornamental book. For suits ot light weight for the spring are cheviots and Angora cloths in fine lines, pink cdecks and stripes of olack and white together, or of dark Havana brown with Suede, dark blue with white, or else green, copper, red or plum color. New white wool camel’s hair, albatross and imperial serge fabrics for aressy spring gowns will be trimmed with heavy watered riobon, one and a quarter inches wide. This will be placed in rows upon the overdress, both front aud back. Wide striped satins of rare quality and pattern are very favorite materials for evening toilets for young ladies. These striped gowns are made without the admixture of any other fabric, with plain full skirts, but slightly draped over the hips and in the hack. A cloth dress should be what is called “tailor made.” It should fit perfectly and should be made just as plain as possible. Tbe latest achievements in this style of dress are calculated to keep up their character for simplicity. No silk, satin or velvet enters into their composition, but the materials are good, soft and rictn For best dresses for spring, laille Fran caise and other handsome corded silks, such as Bengaline, Sicilienne, etc,, will be used in combination with gay striped velvets on satin grounds, finely plaided surahs in Roman colors, rich Lyons satins in monochrome and costly silk cord passementeries in arabesque, palm, scroll, Russian and old Flemish designs. Diagonal fronts upon both basoues and street jackets will be a feature of spring fashions. Tbe English cut-away coat, fastening diagonally across tne chest, is one of the natty styles which will prove popular. Beneath this is a perlect-fitting Louis XIV. vest of pale yellow pique, or very often corded silk of a primrose tint will be used. Another model shows the right front cut wide enough to lap in double-breasted fashion from the throat to the length of about 4 inches over the chest. The tendency iu the coming seasor will be to match the dress in the color of the straw bonnets and hats, which are being dyed in all the new shades shown in the spring goods, old rose, old blue, the new green shades, absinthe and renaissance, Charles X. pint and all the dull red and mahogany shades, called by French mil liners vernis rie Japon. These will be trimmed with upright bows of the new loop-edged ribbons of mousseline, taffeta and gauze, combined with small stiff' wings of small fine flowers. “I noticed,” said the Professor, opening his napkin so as to drop the bill it contained tinder the table, "when I dined with Mr. Van Sikes last night that dinner was announced by the servant in person, not by tbe clang of the belt. It was a pleasing Innovation.” "Well,Professor.” said the landlady amiably, “if it was so pleasing to you I will adopt the same system here.” "Oh, indeed, don’t Mrs. Fogg,” said the Professor putting four more lumps of sugar into his coffee: don’t think of it; where you have mutton four times a week and veal the rest of the time the clang of the bell is a most appropriate reminder.” And the crisp and casual manner in winch Mrs. Fogg recovered the bill from beneath the board and thrust it into the Professor’s hand told too truly that she was deeply conscious of his meaning.— Life.

Mill llu Bali Poite. “ Royal,” only, found free from lime, alum, and * phospliatic acid, and absolutely pure. Under the direction of the New York State Board of Health, eighty-four different kinds of baking powders, embracing all the brands that could be found for sale in the State, were submitted to examination and analysis by Prof. C. F. Chandler, a mem* her of the State Board and President of the New York City Board of Health, assisted by Prof. Edward G. Love, the well known United States Government chemist. The official report shows that a large number of the powders examined were found to contain alum or lime; many of them to such an extent as to render them seriously objectionable for use in the preparation of human food. Alum was found in twenty-nine samples. This drug is em ployed in baking powders to cheapen their cost. The presence of lime is attributed to the impure cream of tartar of com- i merce used in their manufacture. Such cream of tartar was also analyzed and found to contain lime and other impurities, in some samples to the extent of 98 per cent of their entire weight. All the baking powders of the market, with che single excep tion of “ Royal ” (not including the alum and phosphate powders, which were long since discarded as unsafe or inefficient by pru dent housekeepers), are made from the impure cream of tartar of commerce, and consequently contain lime to a corresponding extent. The only baking powder yet found by chemical analysis to be entirely free from lime and absolutely pure is the “ Royal.’* This perfect purity results from the exclusive use of cream of tartar specially refined and prepared by patent processes, which totally remove the tartrate of lime and other impurities. The cost of this chemically pure cream of tartar is much greater than any other, and it is used in no baking powder but the “ Royal.” Prof. Love, who made the analyses of baking powders for the New York State Board of Health, as well as for the Government, says of the purity and wholesomeness of “ Royal”: “ I have tested a package of ‘ Royal Baking Powder ’ which I purchased in the open market, and find it composed of pure and wholesome ingredients. It is a cream of tartar powder of a high degree of merit, and does not contain either alum or phosphates or any injurious substances. “ E. G. LOVE, Ph.D." Btrttcal.
