The great night at Malnllo waa ou
n Sunday. Up to 9 o'clock the strauR-
or wandering in would have had no
suspicion of the Snrdanapalinn orgies
enlivening its oxqulaito scenery a lit-
.lo later on. The entrance , boyoud
.lie flaming gaslight making the word
'Mabillo , gave no demure hint of the
neon en within. Nor having entered
vould the stranger suspect for eomo
lime the wicked trnusports'oxcitcdby
the lightstho music , the company. It
seemed rnthcr the park of some nf
luont personage arranged cu fete.
At 10 o'clock sixty pdccs ! crashed , the
signal for the danco. Then from
ivory direction dames in such ccntomca
as can bo soon only in a Parisian pub
lic , or n "high-life" saloon , gathered
on the waxed floors under the central
pavilion. Thovniuiiciana installed in
the center held the time for the group
ment. Then , nil being ready , the ex
traordinary carnmngnolo began. It
waa a paroxysm of gyrations for which
the word dnnco gives but n feeble de
scription. If the music wcro n waltz ,
the movement was nn indescrib
able interlocking of arms , legs ,
hands and feet , such as was never aeon
outside the contortions of Wnlpurgia
night , or the uncanny doings that daz
ed Tarn O'Shnntor at Alloway's haunt
ed kirk. Movement comes to most
heels when the irreaistnblo music of
the waltz atrtkes up ; lo the French-
IIIUP , madnrca comes. Ho loses his
liiuul and uhfimlons himself to ( ho rap-
uroof I ho moment ; ho embodies the
Bj'iiVul judmnant of Voltaire a
monkey or n tiger.
In the delirious .whirl there were
momunls when the amazed spectator
would have sworn that the revelers
wore n mirage , for their foot seemed
bo bo in the uir and their heads , if
they had any , were invisible. Of late
lays , however , the dancing was most 1
ly done by paid men and women , who
made it more a gymnastic exhibition
than a fete dansanto. These wcro
the Amnxons that electrified strangers ! la
by lightly removing the hat of an un-
suspoctmtf looker-on by a sudden shot >
of the foot. For , whou the dance be
gins the .visitors crowd around the
TJtfeji dancer ? make
wilderod , to the refrain of ahrioka of r
laughter ; then diamisaing the diacom-
fitod partner by a neat kick on the
rim a hia hat , which would send it
flying far away among the bushes , or
perhaps under the foot of the dancers.
In the latter caao the price of regain vi
ing it was inevitably an invitation to $
the Amazon to have auch a "consum 7
mation" ( refreshment ) as she might
command. Stiogonerally | commanded
nomothing that increased the profits
3f the bar enough to allow her a hand
some percentage. For this is ono of
the terms upon which iho cocottes are
admitted , that they should keep thorn
roasonsbly assiduous in their atten
tions to the refreshment counters.
Of late the only nights that Mabillo 1 t
presented any of its old-time attrac
tions was following the "Gtond Prix. "
Then dukes , princes , great dames and
what not flocked to the godless scone.
The dancing resumed it old gayety ,
most of the women masked , and the
men , too , if they desired to escape ob
servation. The admiRpion , raided to
ton frances ( $2) ) , assured an audience
equal to the enhanced prices of the
night. The lights were doubled , two
orchestras , instead of ono , kept up in
cessant music from 10 to 3 , and the
gayety waa correspondingly feverish ,
i'ho winningH of the turf wont in
sumptuous auppors in the grottoes and
cabiuots. The waiters , who paid high
prices for their places , made fortunes
on these golden nights. All that was
famous in Parisian cocottorio could bo
teen in toilota rivaling the Ministerial
rue-options , The mannera and convon-
tioiiu were simple. No introductions
wuiu necessary. No one was offended
hy ( all.intrioi and comments , The
I'nr < ) ian madu it a point to bo present
mi the Siiiulny ; of the Grand
i'tix aiifoof Heoing ministers of state ,
ininccs incognito und kings in exile ,
contending on equal terms for the venial -
nial beauties of the tote. Itivashu
devotion to Mabillo and its mysteries
that brought the sybarite Plon-Plon in
to diaroputo. His party waa scandalized
at the Prince' * appearance there while
the courts of Europe wore in mourn
ing for hia hapless kinsman , Prince
Louia , murdered by the Zulus. t
