Tho Latest Suggestions About
If the observation of social waltzing
in New York and Europo for moro than
forty years mores anything whatever,
writes Allen Dodsworth in "Dancing nnd
its Relation to Social Life," it is that
the method of holding vhich is pre
scribed below is to-day, as at tho begin
ning, adopted by all who may bo no
ticeable for refined manners and move
ment. Tho gentleman approaches tho
lady, offering his left band ono who is
au fait will at the same timo make a
slight inclination to bow. Tlio lady
places hor right hand in that of tho. gen
tleman, who then extends his right arm
in a direct line to tho side, tho forearm
bent so as to foim an acute angle. In
this angle the lady will place herself,
with tho center lino of the person oppo
site tho line of tho gentleman's right
side, both persons on parallel lines, not
forming an angle. In this position
each will bo looking orer tho other's
light shoulder, and by tho lady turning
her head slightly to tho left tho effect of
the group will bo greatly improred, and
prerent all possibility of taking eacli
other's breath, which is rarely pleasant,
and in tliu case of a young man directly
fiom the use of a meerschaum is "posi
tirely hoirid," as many ladies hare re
maikcd. The lady, if not too short,
places her left hand, hooked, upon tho
gentleman's right shoulder, tho fingers
appearing in front. Tho right hand of
tho gentleman should rest very gently
on the lady's back, as near tho waist as
possible; bo as not to remove the ivp
waid picssuro of the elbow directly un
der tho lady's shoulder, as this is tho
lady's support and must bo hold With
suroibut gentle firmness. Tho hand on
tho back should rest very lightly, and
on orery possible occasion should be
ouiAveen, as u souo cases tne ciOse con
tact induces put,piration and may leave
its mark upon the lady's dress. Both
persons should be slightly bent forward
from tho hips upward, so that tho shoul
ders may bo onlr.thrcc or four inches
apart, the distance increasing down
ward; this leares both parties free in
their limbs, so that any contact of per
son or knees may bo aroided, and
should bo so avoided as a most serious
mistake. Tho gentleman's left hand,
holding the lady's right, should bo ex
tended downward in a lino with the
body, the hands three or four inches dis
tant from the person, tho arms forming
a gentle curro from tho shoulder down
ward. No weight is placed upon this
arm; all tlio guiding and changes must
bo gorerned by tho elbow under tho
lady's arm. It will bo .found that this
grouping will be perfectly modest in
appearance, no moro- tirataet Of person
occurring tbsmin a lady'sHakfiig a gen
tleman's arm fpr walking. In conclu
sion, let it be remembered that purity of

How Mr. Hendricks AVlshed to Die.
Mr. Hendricks died as he wished. "I
recollect," said Major Stealey, a person
al friend of the Vice-President, "when
Senator Morton was dying in Indianap
olis. For three days and threo nights
ho lay in indescribable agony. Standing
under tho window of nis house we
could hear him from time to timo shriek
out. It was almost more than ono could
bear to listen. About that time I was
talking of this- case with Mr. Hendricks
and he dwelt for some timo upon tho
different, kind of deaths. Ho thought
this long suffering was greatly to bo de
plored and said lie did not beliero ho
would die in that way; ho thought that
when the time came ho would go quick.
'If I have ono wish aboro all others in
h world,' said he, 'it is that I may be
epaiuu ini-junu" agony ana mac 1 may
go suddenly.' He had his wish."

"sarvengs," almost every district hav
ing some special way of making and or
namenting them and whero a stranger
would see no difference, a connoisseur
at a glance distinguishes between a Ba
tavian. Samarang, orSolo pattern. In
some-places they are woven, sometimes
with gold or silver thread, in others a
rich pattern traced in wax on fino
cotton tor silk. The process is called
"battick", and these ,aro tho finest
Sarreng-making is a great industry
among natiro .women, and "they aro

of .chief and high born natives mako
them as a pastime to uo themselves or
give away, and often trace a story or
legend on them. One such I saw repre
sented in a .most intricate pattern, tho
tree of lifo and its branches. Tho

It is a well-known fact that several of
our smaller animals are bo sensitive to
changes from hca't to cold, and from dry
to moist that they foretell those changes
some timo in advance.
In tho Smithsonian Institution's list
of animals valuable to man, the tree
toad is mentioned as an excellent weather-prophet,
and I can testify to its power
of foretelling the change in the weather.
I have in my possession a paper-weight
in tho form of a bronze frog bupporting
on its back a glass tubo with a bulb at
tho bottom. Some montlis ago I was
fortunate enough to caieh a tree-toad,
and baring heard of his ability as a
weather-prophet, I put him into my
glass tube and nindo from matches a
small ladder so that he could
climb1 up or down within tho tube. I
soon found, that tho approach of a
change in tho weather was always
noticed by the little prisoner, who
climbed toward the. top whenever tho
air grew nioKt or before rain, and as in
variably descended toward tho bottom
of tho tubo in ad anco of the coming of
dry weather. St. Nicholas.
