jumping in the lake we found that
the waicr was extremely wet, and
that the report was ungrounded and
without any foudation, so I state here
without fear of successful contradic contradiction
tion contradiction that Lake Weir has gone wet.
Referring to Master Elliot's grouch,
he met me with the salutation: "A-ha,

raise an awful howl if they do not get
all the notice coming to them, and
when your Belleview nine goes to

So I think the youngster had one on
me, and I will state for his benefit
and to cover his particular grouch,
that the Belleview nine went to Lees Leesburg

Flolsteln then reined up to him and

"Oh. yes," said the othor. laughing
scornfully; "I am speaking with the

as I said before, my king shall not

that event. But you won't so long as
Hans Wachtmeister lives."
Just then the young king, who was
standing by listening to the discussion,
rode up to his adviser and. tapping him
on the shoulder approvingly, said to

Of greatest interest to the younger
social set in our city is the rumor
that all the old fashioned dances are
to be resumed this winter, and they
are coming back to stay. According
to the Philadelphia Dancing. Masters
Association, the old fashioned dances
are coming back to their own, and
the waltz and two-step will again be
the vogue. This will be of interest to
all ages, and no no longer need there
be "wall flowers," either of the mas masculine
culine masculine or feminine sex, because of the
inability to trip the light fantastic of
the intricate and changeable steps of
the past few years. It is good to be believe
lieve believe that those steps will be out of
the way and the two-step and waltz
will predominate. The "hesitation"
is the only survivor and, of course,
there will be a few "frills" added to it
by those that like to be so different,
but that will be determined by the
authorities on dancing when the
tutors of smart dances hold fheir an annual
nual annual convention in Atlantic City
sometime the latter part of this
month. There are many beautiful
dancers among Ocala's social set, and
the question that many are pondering
