The entrance , boyoud the flaming gaslight making the word "Mnbillo , cave no demure hint of the scones within. Nor having entered would the stranger suspect for totno time the wicked transports excited by the lightstho music , the company. It seemed rnthcr the park of some af- lluonb personage arranged en fete. iVt 10 o'clock sixty pieces crnshcd. the signal for the dance. Then from every direction dnmcs in such ci'ntomca is can bo soon only in a Parisian pub lic , or n "high-life" saloon , gathered on the waxed floors under the central pavilion. The inuiicinnn installed in the center hold the time for the group ment. Then , nil being ready , the ot- trnordinnry carnmnpnolo began. It was n paroxysm of gyrations for which the word dance gives but n fcoblo de scription. If the music were n waltz , the movement was an indescrib able interlocking of arms , legs , hands and feet , such as was n aver soon outside the contortions of Wnlpurgia night , or the uncanny doings that daz ed Tarn O'Shnntor at Alloway'o haunt ed kirk.

Of late days , however , the dancing was most ly done by paid mon and women , who made it mare a gymnastic exhibition than a feta dansanto. These were the Amazons that electrified strangers by lightly removing the hat of an un suspecting looker-on by a sudden shot of the < foot.
