Whether it be in a university, a summer resort
or the old home town, with any group that has still
to be cursed by rheumatism or the gout, dancing is
the peer of all pastimes. But it is frequently more
than a pastime, for there are some who anticipate
the wax floor as does the miser the counting of his
gold-it is an infatuation. But not a harmful in-
fatuation, except for the very young or extremely
susceptible. A dance floor, like an insane asylum,
is to some a place of pity and to others a place of
comedy. In one, as a man acts so he is, and in the
other as people dance so they are, which is by no
means an objectionable thing. The socially bored
need not go to the Bowery for a change in type,
nor need the yegg climb an estate wall and endanger
his liberty to have an envious sneer at society's
snobbishness. Any large summer resort with a
good colosium and jazz music will afford ample op-
portunity for the satisfaction of the desires of both.
The dance floor has a knack of bringing out both
the best and the worst in a person, and though an
editorial is supposed to know whereof it deals this
one will not attempt to explain why the dance floor
is such a character revealer, for the reason that it
does not know.
There are types and types on every public waxed
floor, and there are none who have not at least one
characteristic which is individual and interesting.
Helen may dance with her mouth open; Dorothy
may glide along as if, to quote Hafiz, "her heart
is full of passion and her eyes are full of sleep";
Emma may have that envied ability to appear divine
at a distance; Norman may hold his partner like a
pawnbroker his work--close to his heart; and Percy
and Babette may dance af if each weren't engaged
-to somebody else. And yet it is all in the eve-
ning's pleasure. It is not peculiar that those who
condemn dancing are usually unattractive and un-
able to dance themselves, and as a rule sour on the
world in general. But it is only natural that the un-
skilled should seek flaws in the work of the skilled.
.hey are not to be scorned upon. Their lot is a
,orry one, and one can, but wish them a happier ex-
istence in the hereafter.
It has been said that modern dancing, though not
pffensive in itself, creates the opportunity for things
which are. Supposing in certain instances that such
is so,-likewise is life with all its trades and profes-
sions-not excepting the ministry. The various peo-
pIes of the country who make up their various codes
,of ethics have almost unanimously included danc-
ing in their list of decent pleasures, and the lear
old dance reformers who wish to "martyr" them-
selves under the impression that, excepting them-
selves, the world is out of step morally, will be good
material for the Zionists' advance agents.
Something tells us that _l'ichigans Agricultural
college -is going to be pretty well mixed up in pol-
itics. David Friday, the new president, is already
beginning to nominate candidates for congress.
We always thought that Detroiters were keen
business men until one was sold a "box of gold"
for $4oo-the man that sold it had a lot of brass.

THE DEMON RUBY OF JODPHORE
Vi: At Last, the Ruby!
They were seated in the study of Dr. Ossian Ven-
tricle ; Salome Ventricle, Bellini Rogers and Sar-
geant Jenson ap Jenson. They were waiting, even
as Rogers W'ad waited a hectic week .ago, or more
(time does fly so), for Dr. Ventricle who was sooth-
ing his shattered nerves by working over one of his
favorite cadavers in the embalmery.
Presently the Doctor entered through the green
baize door. "I have decided to tell you all," he said.
"Remember that what you say will be used against
you," admonished the Sergeant, remembering that
he graced Scotland Yard.
The Doctor made no sign if he heard. "It is a
long story, but I shall give you a brief synopsis.
When I was a gay young blade with my place still
to make in the embalming profession, I took the posi-
tion of chief embalmer in the Rajah of Johdpore's
Mortality Bureau in the interior of India.
"The work was congenial and the Rajah and I
were great pals, each playing up to the other in a
professional way. But one day there was a revolu-
tion and the Rajah, before he died, gave in my keep-
ing his infant daughter and the great Johdpore ruby,
a gem of incalcuable price. He charged me to bring
the child up in my own country and to marry her to
a young and personable man of my choice. But on
no account was she to marry without having the
ruby in her possession. He warned me in almost
his dying gasp that without the ruby her marriage
would prove a lamentable failure."
"Then she is not your daughter?" asked Bellini
No," said the girl, "I am a Hindoo princess."
The boy brushed away a tear. "Alas," he mur-
mured, "that I am so far beneath you."
"It counts for naught," said she, "for do we not
love each other."
Which was true.
"Bnt," interrupted the Sergeant. "Remember the
curse of the fatal ruby. You must have the ruby."
As if his words were a pre-arranged signal the
coor of the embalmery swung open, moved by an
unseen hand, and in the entrance appeared the ket-
tle of custard and rum, suspended in mid-air !
"This is Mrs. Plummett," said an unseen voice.
"I am speaking from the fourth dimension. Ingo-
mar Ten Brock and Karr Putt Singh are all well.
Here is the custard-you may need it."
Stop ! In the name of Scotland Yard and the
Continental Congress!" cried Sergeant Jenson ap
Jenson. All was silence. Then the Doctor spoke.
"Let us have some custard and rum," he said.
They did. Rogers raised his cup. "To the re-
covery of the ruby," he said. "We must not lose
le raised his cup to his lips and was about,to
drink, when suddenly he halted, eyes staring.
"Look !" he cried. They did. There is the bot-
ton of his cup lay the Demon Ruby of Johdpore!
"I see it all," cried the Sergeant. "Mrs. Plum-
mett beat Ingomar Ten Brock to it !"
There was great joy among all those present.
"You need have no fear about the matter of rank."
said the Doctor to Rogers. "I happen to know that
you are a direct heir on your father's side to the
throne of Madagascar."
"Then I am not Bellini Rogers, a simple rhetoric
instructor?" asked the boy in an awed voice.
"No," said the Doctor.
"And Salome is-is- not Salome?"
"And the Sergeant is not a dectictive?"
"Sh-sh," said the Doctor. "We musn't hurt his

"No pressing engagements with the female of the
species ?" we queried.
"Naw," replies the disgusted Alcibiades. "Last
time I took a flapp r out in the mausoleum, I got
plumb sick unto hysterics. Yuh see, my car got hot
under the cover and I says to her we'll have to stop
nd cool the engine. And she says--." He paused
for the vaudeville punch.
"Yeh ?" we exhaled.
"She says, why don't you strip the gears?"
