selected Dayton as the place in which to
eetablbh myself. I was endeavoring to raise
the neoeseary meney, but was disappointed.
I've been in the habit of investing a dollar a

SOCIAL AND PERSONAL.
Among tho recent nrrivnlson the CouniKii'fl
exchange table I n copy of tho Sunifojfiin,
containing n gossipy article about a gentle
mnn w ell know 11 In Lincoln, particularly In
social circles. It Is 1'rof, Jacob Mahler,
whoo dancing classes wero tho correct thing
in years past. The professor spends Ills sum
mers nt Saratoga, where lie acts as master of
ceremonies at Congress llnll and corrals tho
new dances to lo imported Into the west for
tho succeeding winter season. He Is ono of
tho youngest of tho professionals who go to
Saratoga as n terjwlchoreau .Mecca, in n taix
with n reporter he saldi "I learned to tlanoo
soon after I was able, to walk. My Instructor
was my father, who came to this country
from France lu WM with tho famous ballet
master, Espanoeo, as a female lmersonator.
In 1&I9 ho removed to St, Louis, where ho
established Mahler's dancing academy. For
fifty years It has lceii known throughout tho
state simply as 'Mahler's,' and In that city it
is a household namo. Last year I had nearly
seven hundred pupils. It has been ono ambi
tion of my life to own n school of my own,
constructed upon tho !cst principles. I havo
made a careful study of tho leading dancing
schools of this country nnd have already be
gun tho construction of a three-story building
nt St. Louis. It will bo terra cottn, brick aud
red stone. On the first floor will bo located a
banquet hall, with a seating capacity of four
hundred. Ono flight of stairs leads to the
dancing hall. Here will also bo found tho
reception room, ladles' and gentlemen's dress
tng rooms, reading room, gallery and private
olllce. The third floor w 111 bo my residence.
Tho building will bo completed In September,
nnd will cost $10,000 without tho furniture,
which will augment its value at least (3,000,

feast, and tho good things were discussed with
a relish. Mr. Knapp made a little speech and
gnve tho Lincoln guests the Impression that the
Elkhoni contemplates an extension from this
city. Judgo Mason responded w ith ono of his
characteristic efforts. The banquet was one

On Sunday morning last tho Globe contain
ed a notice to tho effect that tho Pleasant
Hour Juniors had dissolved partnership and
that the causo seemed to be on account of
somo quarrel or dlsagreempntof Its member.
It has come to the ear of a "never sleep''
Couhiek reporter, however, that this Is not
tho true cause. The only reason for their re?
organization Is that a thorough e anvnss of tho
city will havo to be made in order to obtain
tliu names 01 somo more laniy members, ns no
es than six of Its present members will be
Vdled to enter the ranks of sly Cupid's soci
ety ero tho Pleasant Hour Juniors hold their
first party of tho seaxm of '8U and 1W. Sep
tember 8d the first ono of tho lady members
will bo asked If she Intends to "love, honor
and obey," and it tho fair one answers in the
nftlrinntlve sbo will be Installed into one of
tho sweetest littlo homes In tho city. "All
things come to him (or her) who waits," nnd
though the last one to join Hymen's band,
her bosom friend and for years her constant
companion will make tho samn promise to
one ot our best and noblest boys, and begin
llfo over with a change of name. Now of
cour e nothing would give the CouniEit more
pleasure than to glvo Its readers the names of
the fair ones and also tho lucky gents who
will claim their hands, but ns we aro bound
by a fearful oath not to divulge either we
leave tho conundrum for you to guess.
