BSELON. raught the Art if Dancing for Sixty Years--Ini'Jetor of President Tinco j'g Son "Tad-" Prof. George f'. heldon, for more than forty years a dancng master in Washing ton, was buried at 10:30 o'clock this fore noon from the family residence, 919 12th street northwest, interment being at Glen wood. George Thompson Sheldon was about seventy-seven years age, and a native of Philadelphia. lls father was an officer in the English army, while his mother, Lady 3arah Fielding-Sheldon of London, was a laughter of Lord Fielding, noted in his lay for his love of field sports and dancing. Professor Sheldon is said to have inher ted his love for "tripping the light fan astic toe" from his paternal ancestor, who claimed the honor of havipg danced the stately minuet with women of royal >lood in England. Prof. Sheldon was noted for his skill In lancing, and instructing young masters and rnisses in the graceful art. He proudly numbered among his former pupils "Tad" [incoln, son of the martyred Abraham Lin oin; Gen. Fred. Grant and Nellie Grant 3artoris, besides many other sons and laughters of the best families in Washing :on society, including those of the ambas 3adors and other representatives of foreign overnments. He never tired of telling how little "Tad" Lincoln, whose every whim was gratified by his distinguished father, became a pupil of his dancing academy, then located at L7th street and Pennsylvania avenue. One vening the lad came into the dancing room, accompanying one of the children of the French legation. Tad had never before s"n children on gaged in dancing. Aftef watching the fairy-like movements of the little French miss. whose escort he was. Tad asked Prof. Sheldon if he would teach him. Father's Consent Bequired. "Certainly." replied the dancing master, but you must have your father's consent." "Of course." replied Tad, with a jaunty Loss of his head. MY father never refuses ne anything that is right, and this pretty dancing looks as though it is all right." The next afternoon when the lesson was given Tad was on hand, provided with a charactistic note from President Lincoln, which stated: "Tad wants to be a dancer. If you can teach him the art do so.", The boy became a proficient scholar and rever tired of executing some of the fancy lances and steps the professor taught him. Had Many Pupils. Friends of the deceased stated today that here are many men and women now high n social and political life who owe their race in both dancing and walking to Pro essor Sheldon and his methods. Deceased had been a dancing master, his 'enerable wife stated to a Star reporter, for ully sixty years, forty of which were spent t Washington, where his annual exhibi ions of juvenile dancing long ago became ocial functions of distinction, owing to the igh caste of the children who attended hem as participants. His first dancing academy in this city vas located over a feed store on D street etween 6th and 7th streets northwest. ..atterly he was located on the second floor o 1004 F street, where he had been many rears, first occupying the place immediately Lfter the building was erected. SYLPH STOOD THE TESTS. xperiment With President's Yacht at Norfolk-New Steel Target. ipecial Correspondence of The Evening Star. NORFOLK, Va., December 14, 1904. There was a novel experiment with the 'resident's-yacht Sylph in the dry dock at he Norfolk navy yard today, when the ves el was floated into the basin and subjected o a series of tests to ascertain the extent o which the Sylph could roll in a storm at ea without danger of capsizing. The trim ,acht was rolled to a remarkable extent, nd the experiments were pronounced by he navy yard authorities to be highly suc essful. The tests took place in the dry ock, so that the same could be quickly umped out in the event of any possible ac ident by which the vessel might have cap ized during the experiments. The naval tug Choctaw has sailed from Jorfolk for Indian 'Head proving grounds, n the Potomac river, with the large steel arget representing a full section of one of he new fast armored cruisers of the West rirginia, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Col >rado type, which was built at this yard rnd recently placed on board the powerful .mmunition barge No. 9, upon which the arget is being towed up the Potomac. The 'hoctaw, upon delivering the target at In tian Head, will return at once to her eta on at Washington. . h Expressed Surprise. A man who gave his name as George L. tiohards was brought before the Polle jourt this morning and was told that he ad spent three hours in a sleigh on Penn ~ylvania avenue last night and had disput.. d the bill of $3 for his ride. His arrest or fa,ilure to settle with the driver fol owed. Earlier in the evening he was ar ested for alleged disorderly conduct be ause he annoyed two Sisters of Charity at .5th and G streets while he was under the nfuence of liquor. The defendant expressed surprise that he driver of a public vehicle should take en intoxicated man and drive him about he city. He was fined $5 in the disorderly :onduct case and was directed to pay the river. Cause of Death Investigated. Mrs. Jennie .Mahoney of Buffalo, N. Y., lied at Garild Hospital yesterday after ioon after a brief illness, and because of he nature of the case it was re orted to thie police and ooroner. l)etec ives Muller and Cornwell were detailed tnd made an investigation after the au opsy showed that her death had occurred 'rom unnatural causes. They were unable o trace the offense to any particular per on and an inquest may not be held. The deceased was twenty-one years old. ihe came here oi ly a few days ago, it is tated, to find enfYFyment. She called on 'riends living on'1 street northeast and was making her ame with them. Her usband came 'eeshortly after she eached the city.f ~'~r body was removed rom the hospitel to the home of her riends today. Aingements for the fu ieral have not yeO been made.
