cut vest a ml almost equally low-cut dross

rather meagre , but the barrenness of orna

ting to Dhow oft , to better advantage , the
richly attired human butterflies , who Hilled
hither and thither in the dances. At a

Advantages of Good Dancing.
Dancing is Just as essential to our training
and the otlucutiou of the yaun as the school
bouso. At one plauoour Intellectual faculties
arc cultivated , while at the other our physi
cal balng is Improved , and the graces of
motion added to our accomplishments. Of
the physical advantages of dancing there is
not a doubt. Llko all other bodily exercise
It Impart ! ) strength to the frame nnd beauty
to the proportions , The motion of the legs ,
anus nnd body Is absolutely necessary to
the development of tlio musclennd
the healthy action of the blood. The
whole body moves with more freedom ,
nnd acquires an easy and agreeable appearance -
anco from the practice of dancing , The
shoulders are thrown back , the Inferior
limbs attain greater strength and elasticity.
tlio muscular masses of the hips , thighs and
legs are symmetrically displayed , the feet are
constantly turned outward , and in the gait
tlicro Is something peculiar , by which wo im
mediately discover a person who has culti
vated the art. Every other kind of gymnas
tics strengthens or beautifies particular parts ,
whilst it weakens others and makes them in
a manner deformed. All other exorcises
leave something disagreeable about those
who practice tliom : neither singly nor con
jointly can they boalaw that becoming abpei-t
und thosci agreeable manners which dancing ,
when well taught , never falls to impart , llv
it the head , arms , the hands , legs , feet , in
short all parts of the body , are rendered sym
metrical. pliant and graceful.
To children the exercise of dancing Is es
sentially useful , for it Is In early youth that
their manners can Jjo formed , their objcc-
tional habits removed , and their deportment
rendered pleasing and ngrooablc. It is , too.
an Innocent source of enjoyment. The total
abandon of pleasure , the exhilaration of
mind and oxhuberanco of spirits which
characterizedauccra are active cgeou in
promoting the health ol body and cheerful
ness of disposition.
The art of dancing Is not only beneficial
physically and socially , but is almost indis
pensable to those fond of society. The man
ner of presenting ono's self and of receiving
others in company with n graceful propriety ,
and tlio easy and polite demeanor which is so
becoming in society.are acquired most effect
ually by those who have studied it.

An KvcnliiK With tlm llomatiH.
In the bright parlors of the Academy of
the Sacred Heart , nt Park Place , might have
been t > con this week n very templing array
of exquisite and graceful fancies in the way
of needle work , showing that even while
minds are busy garnering golden sheaves
from the fertile Holds of history and litera
ture , skillful hands are put to the strong
things that contribute BO largely to domestic
happiness. The nomenclature- Iho fashion
books would hnvo to bo exhausted In tlio
mere enumeration of all the pretty articles
cxhlbilcd. This much , however , must bo
said of all the fanoy work and beautifully
wrought altar llnon , that ono is struck by the
high merit and delicacy of execution which
Friday evening the young ladies enter
tained their audience with the great deeds
and great men of Rome. The open
ing essay gave a faithful picture of
its eventful and remarkable begin
nings , binding some of tlio tendrils of
the mind of old Rome to the Christian inter
pretation of the true and the right. It ex
plained the riddle of the ancient/ / world by
showing how the history of the church grow
out of that of Rome , and how , in the provid
ence of God , it was the center of other civ
ilizations that were reached through it.
Miss Stcphcnson developed u very inter
esting' feature of Roman life , namely , its
Jurisprudence , and dwelt at some length on
tlio constitution of Romo.
The manners and cubtoms of the people as
portrayed by Miss Lowe , gave an insight to
the first Roman house , told how these old
dwellings were heated mid lighted , and de
scribed the graceful toga and stola of the
men and women of those days.
Miss G. French discoursed on the reading
nnd writing of these learned pagans , Illus
trating by such n galaxy of brilliant names
as Plautns , Terence , Cicero and Virgil , the
influence of Greek thought and Roman men
Miss Grucn'fi's essay dealt with the deelino
of the republic and the establishment of the
empire , together with tlio probable results of
Miss Shelley nnnllzcd the cause that led
to the conversion of Rome , described how
the spread of Christianity was not analogous
to that of national religions , and how the
introduction of Christian morals was wholly

terminated by a Christmas greeting to Right
Rev. Itlbhop O'Connor , und was followed by
n beautiful chorus of welcome , sung by the
Tlio musical interludes were real cantatas
of joy , hailing the approach of the glad
Chistmas season. The overture was a lively ,
ftoul-silrim ; march , most appropriately chosen
as a prelude to an evening with the Romans ,
and was well executed by Misses Dolloao
and Kelluy. The coiiborgo nnd tlio Verbum
Care were llko paeans of triumph out of
old incdlmvul cathedral. Nevertheless , ap
preciation must bo awarded for sweetness
and pathos to the Adesto Fidoles , ever an
cient and over now , rendered doubly touch

HH | Fiftieth ntrtliday.
Mr. 1C. S. Notycoinbo , with about twenty
of his lady and gentlemen friends , cele
brated the fiftieth anniversary of his birth
day at the .Murray Thursday oveninir. The
collation was served on a long table , lavishly
ornamented with ( lower * iu the hotel
room. Tlio menu card was appropriately engraved -
graved on its outer pages and within gave I
promise of a royal repast. The announcej j
ment in plain Anglo Saxon of "Plattsmouth
turkey" in the midst of tlio French dishes
appeared very unique. This turkey was sent
from Plnttsmoiith , IST. V. , Mr. Newcombo's '
binh place , and proved a most toothsome
contribution. Tlio evening passed away
pleasantly and the guests wished most
heartily that he might live lifty years longer.
Tact in Society.
Etiquette is the foundation of society , nnd
illusion is its framework ; yet the mystery of
illusion belongs more to the female -
male mind , for the physiological fascination
of this strange influence only finds its proper
esteem in the endowment of temlninc grace
and brilliancy. To know how to entertain n
dinner party , how to bo in n soirco musicale ,
how to receive one's enemy with uncomprom
ising sane froid , how to render a company
of anipathiu individuals at once comfortable
in spirit and smooth of tongue , belongs to
tact nnd etiquette , but n fine sense of percept
ion is required to comprehend it.

It is a fact which may not bo generally
