The men tell me that I am a pretty good dancer myself, which may or may not be the case. This, however, I will own np to, whether it is boasting or not—I do know whether a man is a good dancer or whether he is not from the very first moment my finger tips drop upon his arm. That man about whom I was let in for so much unmerciful chaff at our last assembly boll is a very good case in point Whatever were his other draw backs, he was undoubtedly a good ■waltzer—one of the best I ever* danced with. Certainly, as it turned out, he did not dance with any other girls, but I don't see that that weakens my statement Yon cannot judge much of the way a man dances by merely looking at his heels or watching the way he handles his partner. I know most of them would give their ears now to say that they had danced with him. They don't say so, of course. They say they'd never have danced wit^ a man to whom they had never been in troduced. My fascinating partner and X never were formally Introduced. The thing Was quite simple, and X daresay the trick has been played thousands of times before. Ask you own brother, cm his honor, if be is Innocent of in The assembly ball was a gathering of no particular clique or sen It was a gPGmfuliofpe^lewfco wg<|^a grgjt With this tot assembly X was feeling at first more than usually oat of tune, because, although I had been standing by mamma a good ten minutes, 1 had up till then only ten names scrawled down on my programme, and 1 had no others In view. So when a man came up from behind, bowed, addressed me by name and asked for a dance I felt distinctly glad to see him. He was rather tall, dark, with black eyes, black mustache and good teeth, and, for anything I knew, his name might have been Adam. I couldn’t do less than bow slightly and conclude that I had been introduced to him one of the previous years. I also saw fit to give him waltz "No. 7,” whioh he asked for. "And would you take compassion on me and give me another?” said he. "I know so few people here this year—at least so few that I care to dance with. Awfully obliged. ” I suppose the compliment was a trifle broad, but it tickled me at the time, and 1 gave him the dance next after supper. “By the way,” said he, "are you en gaged for the ‘first extra?’ I suppose they have such a thing?” Prom that very first moment I told myself 1 was in luck’s way. At the first 6weep of the waltz I knew it. ~ ' time we made the first round floor I felt that I could have danced on with that partner forever. We danced the dance through to its very last lingering bar, and 1 said to my fascinating partner—a thing which 1 very rarely allow myself to say to any man after a waltz, lest it should make him unduly conceited—I said, "Thank you. ” "Thank you very much,” replied be. "I don't think I ever had such a de licious dance before. Could you give me another?” “You have two others already,” I suggested. So I gave him the supper dance when he asked for it, and the extras after, and the polka before. He left me then, and for the most part he stood with his back against a pillar, bis hands in his pockets and a Very bored expression on his dark, hand some face. I must confess that we had the fourth together—another waltz. Those tire some men either wouldn’t dance or didn't know me, and I saw visions of sitting it out in single blessedness, when my fascinating partner came up and saved the situation. “Would I again take compassion on him? Might he? Thanks, so much." Boon afterward he took me up stairs and laughed and showed me a snug lit tle sitting room, which even I had not known of before. Be said it belonged to the manager or some on* and was not supposed to be used. "You seem to know the place pretty well,” said, I with the idea of trying to find out who he was, because still I couldn’t remember having ever met him beforo. "I think I may say I know every inch of it.” "Do you live somewhere near here then? I—er—I forget. ” “Not 60 fortunate, I’m afraid. The tact is, I’m a cockney. I ran down here on purpose for the dance. D’you know, ” he continued, laughing, “it’s an awful Jar to my feelings to discover such a thing, but I can see yon don’t recollect me one little bit. ” "It’s awfully rude of me, I know, but, you see, I oome across so many new faces that”— “ Insignificant items are forgotten. Precisely. Well, I shall keep up the in eognito a little longer, and then if yon cannot flatter me by remembering I shall humble myself and own up to who I am. ” My fascinating partner got up and shut the door. , "Miss Conyers, does It strike that with this dance and the next, trhioh yon had given me already, and this sup per and the supper extras you have giv en yourself into my charge for at least three-quarters of an hour? Let me im press upon you that no one is likely to disturb us. ” I didn’t like his manner one little bit I tan not nervous, but I got up and said 1 thought it would be better to go down 6tairs. "Awfully sorry to differ from yon, Miss Conyers, but I must ask you to stay.” He turned the key in the lock and put it in his pocket "Please sit down again. Sit down, I say, Miss Conyers, and don’t make a noise. I don’t think any one could hear you, even if yon did scream out, but if you try to make the experiment I shall be forced to resort to unpleasant meas ures. In fact, I shall be compelled to cram part of this antimacassar into your mouth by way of a gag. So now you are reasonable ” "What do yon mean?” I gasped, feel ing very scared indeed. ”No bodily harm to you unless you force me to it, that I swear upon my honor. And, really, after those deli cious waltzes you have given me I keen ly regret having to offer yon any annoy ance whatever, But, Miss Conyers, busi ness is business, and I have been at con siderable trouble and expense to get here tonight to enjoy the pleasure of your so ciety, and I feel sure you will under stand that some recompense was due to me. I must trouble you far your dia monds.” “Oh, you cannot mean to”— "Miss Conyers, I am a man of my word, and let me remind you that time presses. My carriage is waiting for me outside, and I have a long drive ahead of m& Now, must I act as your lady's maid, or do you prefer to unclasp the diamonds yourself?" With trembling fingers I took off and handed him my neoklace and the brace let and the half dozen little brooches from my corsage. "Thanks, very much,” he said, slip ping them deftly into his breast pocket "And might 1 venture to remind you of that exquisite star which nestles in your bfllr? fhanks again. No other trifles youwtSHpirftUnS, my dear Miss Conyers, if you take off your left glove you might find something interesting them I believe I see a slight protuberance on the third finger. Thanks once mom Yon are too awfully good. And now I won’t bother yon any fur ther.” And he was gone, and I heard the lock shoot in the door, and the key was turned on the farther side. It was a fall hoax before any one came near to let me out, and by that time my fascinating partner was far enough away. It was quite true that he had come down from town on purpose for the as sembly ball The police said that he was a well known London swell mobs man. But, unfortunately, they never man aged to rediscover his address, or, what was very much more to the point, my beautiful diamonds.—London Answers. Water Column 93,000,000 Miles Long. The finite mind is utterly Incapable of framing an idea or of making a com parison that will properly illustrate the vast amount of water now existing in the five great oceans of our planet. Let us see: One gallon of water weighs ten pounds, and figures on the area and depth of the Pacifio show that there are approximately 200,000,000,000,000 of such gallons of water in that ocean alone. The Atlantio could be put down in the basin of the Pacific, and only fill it one-third full. The Indian, the Arctic and Aiftarotic ooeans, combined with the other two, would give an area for the five of 142,000,000 square miles. Formed into a circle this would make an ocean 12,000 feet in depth and 13, 000 miles from bank to bank. The contents woujd be about 196,000,000 cubio miles of water. If a standpipe could be built from the earth to the sun, so that we could have a column of water 93,000,000 miles in length, that standpipe would have to be made 2% miles in diameter to hold the water now contained in the five great oceans. It has been figured that it would take 1,600,000 years for the water of the Pa cifio to flow over Niagara, the volume being continually as great as that which is now plunging over the falls.—St. Louis Republic. A Girl Patriot. An English girl at school in Prance began to describe one of our regiments on parade to the French schoolmates, and as she went on she told me the rec ollection became so vivid she became so proud to be the countrywoman of such soldiers and so sorry to be in another country that her voice failed her and she burst into team I have never forgotten that girl, and I think she very nearly deserves a statue. To call her a young lady, with all its niminy associations, would be to offer her an insult She may rest assured of one thing, although she never should marry a heroio gen eral, never see any great or immediate result of her life, she will not have lived In vain for her native land._Rob ert Louis Stevenson in "An Inland Voyage” Flogs at Half WMt., The custom of flying a flag at half mast high a» a mark of mourning and respect arose out of the old naval and military practice of lowering the flag in time of war as a sign of submission. The vanquished always lowered his flag, while the victor fluttered his own flag above it from the same staff. To lower a flag, therefore, is a token of respect to one’s superior and a signal of mourning and distress. SUMMER INNEWYORK REV. MADISON O. PETERS SPENDS A DAY IN WATER STREET. Blessings of the Free loe Stations—Chunk of Heaven on Hell's Brink—Homeless Children In a Great City—Work For Missionaries at Home—The Rom Corse. Mr. Peters did not preach Aug. 11, but sends the following: In company with a trusty friend, one of earth's greatest blessings, I visited Water street, New York, when the ther mometer registered 90 degrees in the shade. I started early that I might gain some knowledge of the free ice stations. What blessings this charity brings to these dark places of abject poverty I To stand for an hour at any one of these stations and watch the creatures who creep there to receive the blessing of 15 pounds of ice, to behold the eagerness with which they make approach, the anxiety with which they push forward, the glistening gladness in their eyes as they bear off the trophy, is only to Com prehend in a small measure the good done by this practical philanthropy. Here they come and crowd, men, wo men and children of all kindreds and tongues—the dwarf, scurvy and scrub of humanity. Sometimes the crowd is so dense that angry competition follows. Boys and girls with emaciated bodies, feverish lips, hollow eyes, dirty all over, are on the outside and watching for the chips of ice that fall to the ground. Qnp little girl to secure her prize sat on her Ice until her competitors had with drawn. This free ice station on Water street is a chunk of heaven on the brink of a belL As I stood near the unwashed wretchedness my high hope and fervent prayer was that the generosity of New Yorkers might open such stations in ev ery needy part of our city. You need not walk rar down Water street to find outlandish sights. Between a barrel and a box there was stretched on a stone, with head on a doorsiU, a woman, a mother, It seemed, A drinking dame, A sight of shame. Ye* how sadly common is this spec tacle in Water street I write of this misery because my memory refuses to forget this picture of pity—this blas phemy on womankind, eyes filled with water, asleep, pimpled cheeks and red nose, telling the sad story of her sin and abama Bacchus veil bis sheep be knows, For be marks them on the nose. But the poor little babe would draw tears to the eyes of our gayest butterflies of society and the masculine grasshop pers which dance attendance upon them. It was ragged, dirty. Want of food was manifested in its sunken little eyes, its withered cheeks, its bony little Angers and its frail little ankles. There was the restless little fellow moaning and groan ing to get his dinner from a breast whose maternity the demon drink had clutohed by the throat and choked to death. A diamond in a gutter. If drunkenness follows hard on the heels of moderation, so a haslot may carry a rose on her bosom. A few doors from the drunken mother and unfortunate babe was seen a little boy about 7 years old, clean, comely and bright, a little cherub that you would like to have play with your chil dren. His shoes were delicate, his stock ings matched his velvet suit, and his head was covered with a new white hat There was an artistic knot in his ribbon necktie. He was sweet I instinctively said: "That boy has a Christian mother, or there Is a mystery about his life, a romance of some kind The parentage of thatchild is not found in the slums. ” That boy came in the ruin of a beauti ful young woman. In her face can still be traced the lines of beauty. Shame has driven her and her neat little care to this street, there to wither and melt like snow in the spring, shedding burn ing tears of sadness over man's villainy and woman’s inhumanity to woman, "which has made countless thousands mourn. ” There are 75,000 children In New York city worse than homeless, friend less and godless. It is this population that furnishes 70 per cent of our crim inals. If we do not Christianize them, they will heathenize ns. We send good missionaries to save the babies of China, but let the devil take the babies at home. A minister lately told a pathetio story of the miseries of infant life in China, of the babies who were left in the streets at night to die of exposure. Pour thousand were saved by the missionary women. Now that preach er did not know that the same thing is going on at home—not a willful ex posure to the cold and heat, but a com pulsory neglect. Could that preacher go with me through some of the benighted streets of New York and Brooklyn he could see hundred of babes In the agonies of death, dying by the inch of heat, of cold, of want of food and care. Let him see their puny and skinny little hands, the limbs withering with starvation, eyes sunken or bulging out of their sock ets. They are eaten np with fever and with filth. Have we home missionaries to go out and look after these? Do our churches take up contributions to minis ter to these little ones of our own cities? I doubt if any pulpit in this city ever thought that this question was impor tant enough for discussion. These home less and godless poor little ones that we are neglecting into vice and starving in to crime should through Christian char ity be pressing the narroty path of lifa Those cursing little lips should be sing ing the praises of God. The Spartans who threw their sickly children to the wild beasts were merciful compared with that indifference which in our city gives up the destitute children to be eaten up by their own depravities. I think it must be somewhere written that the virtues of mothers Bhall occa I sionally be visited on their children aa 'well as the sins of the fathers. —Charles Dickens. In Combination!!
