Such was the attitude toward the

True the waltz Is not so much of a

one-step or fox trot, but jou will llnd
that those who are able to dance It
well really prefer It to the other
Of course we do regard It as a
rather tame affair after all the other
modern dances, but the time was
once, as Thomas Ralkes suggests,
when It was regarded as quite bb
shocking as wc regarded uny of the
new-fangled trots when they camo
out. In fact, Goethe makes Werner
say that If ho were married his wife
should waltz with no one hut him
self. And there were lather old
fashioned folk a generation ngo who,
though they would two-step and polka
with others after tlioy were engaged,
would waltz only with the one to
whom they wore betrothed. Now we
have no such sentimental notions.
We prefer usuully to dance with the
Iiersons with whom we are best able
to go through the stepi. Lads dance
with their own grandmothers and are
glad enough to do so If those grand
mothers dance well.

the frilly ruflles of the bed.

"How can I help sleeping In this

First, sho peekPd at the wonderful

quilt and looked long at tho hits of
silks. "Oh, you wonderful old-fashioned
things!" hIio said aloud. "How
beautiful you arel" ',
"Old-fashioned. Indeed !" said
' olcu near Betty's ear, and she felt
a tug and heard a rustling sound,
which turned her completely over, sho
was so astonished.
Tho silk quilt seemed to ha0 lifted
