His work confined him somewhat and he realized that he was not getting all cf the hilarity out of life that human experience is capable of affording. He wasn't buzzing about enough, you might say. And so it was that one evening, as he sat alone in his dis consolation, he pondered somewhat as follows : "Yea. and a hundred times yea," he pondered, "I should gather with the "beau monde.' I am wasting the happy, golden hours of my heydey. I must bestir myself and acquire a-gility at the new dances. I must shake a leg, yea, bo!"

So you see he was an awful sticker. Whenever Amby set out to achieve, you can filch it from us he generally scored. Such a youth was Amborse Sympe.

The latter explained his intention of doing a headlong dive into the seeth ing vortex of the social function. To this end a wide knowledge of the cur rent dances was necessary. The P'f sor made a horrible pn about currwl dances and the "grapevine" step n4 laughed genially as he told Ambro that the first payment was only H dollars. Many a night thereafter did Am brose limp home with a back far wat er than any ever pictured in a pill ad. But his heart sang londerthi the squeak of his knees. He was a tering the new dances as fast as appeared. He did not forget the relenting determination mentioned a the third paragraph. At last the ening of his first social venture rived! .And at this point the ;pW siCKens. Mothers, heed our warning! Art your sons anxious to learn the W dances? Coerce them, mothers; cor them. Spare them the pain nl dismay that befell the lot of Ambro Sympe. The evening before his soc debut he had missed his dancing school And appearing at the ball the poor" found that he had not learned the I1' est step.
