The custom of wearing gloves nt dancing
parties is not as arbitrary as it once was , and
gentlemen can sludy their own convenience
in this matter. When it was faahlonuulo for
ladles to wear white kids and gentlemen to
go ungloved , the ladies complained that their
if loves and waists of their paitv dresses wore
ruined by the perspiration of their partner's
hands. Then all the gentlemen wore gloves.
An incident will Hhow how peremptory tha
fashion became. A well known society lady
was dancing , and in the all hands round
Jig tire declined the hand nf a certain gentle
man nt each round fldunng the oven-
ing. Naturally the gentleman was much
chagrined until ho learned thr.t It was his un
gloved hand she refused.

piece , round and round , I had danced six or
eight times with one gentleman , when my
father touched mo on tha shoulder uud re
minded mo that 1 had danced enough. I full
very much vexed , but I now wonder how I
would fcol to sco my little daughter , at the

manner in which it is now danced , is a great
improvement upn the mud whirl of my
younger days. J t. \ \ - ollnot \ \ be tolerated in

of llttmg up the house to be begun as soon as
