says a Paris letter to the New York
Night after night, in the swellest
social circles, in the wealthy middle
class sets, in the poor relation and
outsiders' coteries, down to the little
bourgeoisie itself, the “cakewalk” tri
umphs. There is not a dancing master
in the capital who does not have his
cakewalk classes. And now. in this
last week, those who wish to get it
perfect go to “Florodora” at the
BoufTes, to see the cakewalk danced
“by six beautiful American girls and
four negroes!”
It is a craze that has come to Paris.
And from Paris it has gone on to
set. It was an enchantment for the
eyes. But the cakewalk!"
"The cakewalk? Mon Dien. It is
nice, or rather it is strange and un
expected.” replied Rosita Mauri. "But
it has no connection with the dance.
When one sees it for the first time
one Is surprised and amused, but I
doubt very much that the taste for it
will keep it on the stage.
“Notice,” continued the ballerina,
"notice how easy the cakewalk is to
learn. There is one explanation of
its success. The young maids and
matrons of society who revel in it
have never, I fancy, sought to become
classical dancers. The classical
dances require too much time, too
much effort, while the cakewalk is
an affair of a few lessons. ’
All this is taking a light thing seri
ously. And the curious thing to
Americans in Paris is the seriousness
with which the cakewalk's innumer
able French admirers defend it.
“But what can you see in it?" I
have been asking a couple of my
fathers were. We are changed. Thf
life of open air sport, of racing
cycling, automobiling. ballooning and
the rest of it has made all robust. We
are becoming Americanized. And
“And so—?”
“And so we rise on our hind legs
and prance and shout!”
I heard much the same thing from
the American high priest of society
dancing in Paris, the now famous
George Washington Lopp, in his
‘ Washington Palace,” just behind the
Elysee Palace hotel. Some one has
been backing up Mr. Lopp in a mil
lion-franc enterprise, and the result
is tliis really wonderful "Washington
Palace.” No dancing master in Paris
or elsewhere, ever had such an estab
lishment before. All the great build
ing is his own and built according to
his plans. For eight years past Mr.
Lopp has been teaching American
dances to the children of Parisian
high society. These children are now
Vienna. So Paris correspondents In
Vienna gravely discuss it. Will it
conquer the Vienna watte? They
actually ask this question. “The opin
ion seems to be unanimous.” writes
the correspondent, “that the cake
walk will never succeed-in deposing
the waltz from its proud position in
Viennese society.” Among other
celebrities. Signora Irene Sironi, the
'prima ballerina” of the Vienna
Court opera, was interviewed on the
momentous subject.
“The cakewalk is no dance at all.”
says Signora Sironi. All of which is
telegraphed to Paris.
Then they interview Rosita Mauri,
whd for many years has been the
great high queen of ballet at the
Paris opera.
or late years we have seen on the
stage certain dances which certainly
have not developed from the pure
classical tradition,” began the inter
viewer timidly. “Yet we applauded
them. The naturalist quadrille, the
can-can and cbahuts of the music
halls, involving as they did a not un
pleasing billowy effect of lingerie,
were called Parisian. And the lumin
ous dances of La Loie Fuller! Her
pep’um took harmonious folds dear
to the lovers of Greek statuary, and
her nc-irfs scintillated with a thou

sprig of society, the other a physi

to know better and does not. "What
can you see in it? You know nothing
of the American darky, with his
rococo elegance of dress and move
ment. You cannot appreciate this bur
lesque rejoicing in his lively graces."
"No.” they reply, "but the attitudes
and movements of the cakewalk are
in themselves amusing, ‘taking' and
novel. And we are not so ignorant of
the negro as you may imagine. We
can figure to ourselves the original

answered the doctor. “Have you seen

We rail them goo-goo eyes.
“Her languishing backward tilt,
like a little dog on its hind legs, and
the delightful way she holds her arms
and hands? We find it charming and
novel. Then the movements of the
cavalier are of a suggestive gallantry,
full of the pride of life, replete with a
strengthful swagger that proclaims
the mastery of youth. We Parisians
of to-day are in love with all that
sort of thing. We are not what our

ly. "For years now I have been tell

my word for it. It is amusing to hear
them pronounce the American names:
‘Tree-step,’ ‘Boh-Stone’ (for Boston 1,
‘Nev-Por’ (for Newport! and ‘Har-var’
(for Harvard). Of all these Ameri

thing like a real dance, don’t you?
Well, it is novel and amusing.”
“But does that account for the
cakewalk’s immense and immediate
vogue?” I asked.
Mr. Lopp was not sure about it.
"The time must be ripe for it,” he
said after long reflection. "We must
be living in a cakewalk period.”

Golden Text—“Remember the Words
of the Lord Jesus, How He Said, It
Is More Blessed to Give Than to
Receive"—Acts 20:35.
Paul Revisits the Churches Tie had
Founded In Macedonia and Greece. Vs. 1-3.
1. From Rom. 15:19 It would appear that
his work In Macedonia continued some
time, and that lie extended the gospel
Into the neighboring regions, even unto
Ulyricum. 2. He spent three months In
Greece, chiefly in Corinth. 3. A Collec
tion was taken up In the vurious churches
on this tour for Paul to carry to the poor
disciples at Jerusalem, according to his
promise seven years before. 4. The Sec
ond Epistle to the Corinthians was writ
ten during this tour In Macedonia, late
In A. t>. 57. 5. The Epistle to the Gal
atians was written about this time from
Corinth. 6. The Epistle to the Romans
was also written at Corinth during this
visit. 7. Paul was giving his last fare
wells to the churches he loved.
The Homeward Journey Toward Jeru
salem, Vs. 4-16. After remaining in
Corinth three months Paul decided to
start on his journey to Jerusalem. For
two reasons: (1) The antagonism of the
Jews was again aroused against him as
during Ills previous visit. <2) It was now
April (v. 6. the Passover that year being
April 7-141. and he was anxious to reach
Jerusalem by the last of May. when the
feast of Pentecost occurred.
Five lending Christians went with Paul
from Corinth; Luke joined him at Phil
ippi and two more from the province of
Asia, probably Ephesians, joined the par
ty at Troas, and all proceeded together
to Jerusalem. At Troas Paul preached.
Eutychus slept and fell out of the win
dow, and was restored by Paul.
The Journey continued from Irons, In
a snutheastei ly direction along the Egean
i'oast of Asia Minor, till they come to
Miletus, the port nearest Ephesus.
1. A Review of the Past.—Vs. 17-21.
At Miletus the vessel was detained for
a brief interval. Paul could not well go
to Ephesus, thirty miles away, for the
duration of the vessel's stay was uncer
tain. lie, therefore, sent for the elders of '
the Ephesians to come lo him at Miletus,
and made to them, as representatives of
the church, one of the most touching ap
peals in literature. He began by a brief
statement of his life among them. (1) His
life was open before them. (2) His work
was amid many trials. i3) He supported
himself by dally labor tv. 34). (4) He
was humble and unselfish (vs. 19, 33).
i.'ii He was faithful. <6i He labored pub
licly. (7) lie went from house to house.
(M His teachings, repentance and faith.
(9) He had omitted nothing that was
profitable to them.
II The Prospect that bay before Him.
—Vs. 1 l-.'.'i. From the past Paul turned
to the future. He felt constrained by nn
Invincible sense of duty to go on to Jeru
salem; but there was some dark unknown
ouiamUy looming up In the future,
strange. Indefinable, but terrible.
III. Counsels to the Church.—-Vs. 28
35. First: Watch, Take Heed.—Vs. 28-31.
1. To yourselves. L’8. "Take heed there
fore unto yourselves."' That you be right
and true, a good example, filled with the
Spirit, taught of God, a fit und willing
instrument for his work. He who neg
lects his own vineyard can do littla for
tin vineyards of others.
2. To the church. "And to all the
flock." Note the word all, to the poorest,
the weakest, the erring, the neglected,
the disagreeable; and especially to the
lambs of the flock. <
3. To see thut you "feed the church,”
do nil that Is necessary In caring for a
tloek. The flock is to be fed with the
word of God, guarded from false teachers
and errors of doctrines, to be led Into
rich pastures of the highest Christian
experience, and into fields of usefulness.
4. For the church Is most precious
since it Is his own "which ho hath pur
chased" (acquired, mad.- his own at great
cost to himself> "with his own blood."
At the cost of his life, in Christ. Nothing
can so show the Intensity of God’s love
for his people as does this fact of the In
finite cost to him of their redemption.
"God so loved the world that he gave
his only begotten Son."
o. In view of the dangers. 29. "For I
know, after my departing,” from Ephe
sus. "Shall grievous" (rapacious)
"wolves." The avowed enemies of the
30. “Also of your own selves." The
wolves were enemies from without; but
there were equal or greater dangers lurk
ing within the fold.
31. "Therefore watch." This expresses
not a mere act, but a state of wakeful
ness and watching; the wakefulness and
diligence that overlooks no duty, indulges
no indolence.
Second: Remember. Let my life among
you for three years be your example and
Third: Hope. 32. "And now ... I
eommi nd to the word of his grace." The
precious truths and promises which God
has sent to us in his Word and by his
Word Jesus Christ (John 1:1-14). "Able
to build you up." The Christian is to be
built up upon the foundation of Jesus
Christ, like a temple, costly, beautiful,
lighted, tilled with worship and love.
"And to give you an Inheritance among
all of them which are sanctified." Made
holy. \\ ithout holiness no man can sec
Fifth: Be Helpful to Others. 35. "I
have shewed you all things.” Not all
things, as the object of shewed, but as
to all things. In all ways, by teaching
and by example. "Ye ought to support
the weak " That Is. those unable, in con
sequence of physical Infirmity, to labor
for their own support. No Christian
should labor chiefly for himself, but that
he may support those dependent on him,
and tnay give to the poor, and spread the
gospel of our Lord. It Is this which
makes the commonest work noble.
IV. The Farewell Scene.—Vs. 3C-38.
36. "lie kneeled down." The most ap
propriate attitude for praying. A natural
attitude of the body is an aid to the spirit
of prayer.
37. "They all wept sore." Tears are
often a telief hi sorrow*, and w*hen people
who are in affliction cannot weep, we fear
for the results of their grief. "And kissed
him” The word is used for the betrayal
kisses of Judas (Matt. 26:49), the fath
er's embrace of the returning prodigal
(Luke la.-O), and of the tender caressing
of the Lord s feet in the Pharisee's house
(Luke 7:38).
38. “That they should sec his face no
"Say not Good Night, but In some bright
er clime.
Bid mo Good Morning."
Results of a Wrong.
The worst of having inflicted a
wrong upon the innocent is that you
ran never, by any means, retrieve It.
You can repent, and it is probable
that your very repentance insures
your forgiveness at a higher tribunal
than that of earth’s judgment, but the
results of wrong cannot bo wiped out
ar done away with in this life; they
continue to exist, and, alas! often mul
tiply. Even the harsh and unjust word
cannot be recalled, and however much
we may regret having uttered it, some

the test she produced a fraction over
2,754 pounds of milk, from which was
extracted 12i> pounds, ounces of
butter. In other words, the milk that
Sadie gave during the thirty days'
