P.-'  ��� ATLIN,   B.   C,   SATURDAY,   JANUARY 3*.   igoi  MY FIRST VISIT TO A DANCE  HALL.'  ' I had been some years in the  West, but never till the winter of  *97-'98, when I happened to be in  Dawson, had lever seen that institution which is peculiar to the" West-a  Dance-hall. Possibly, from the  fact that my ' first, acquaintance  with this form of amusement  was iu a new aud thriving camp,  where so many men had leaped  from poverty to aflluence iu a few  hours; it made more , impression on  me than it would on an average per-  ' son who had spoilt the, charm of its  novelty in other and more straight-  laced communities.  I was going down the water front  one evening, ai.d attracted by  the music and sounds of jollification  within, I strolled into the saloon  from whence the laughter aiid mirth  issued.,. The door ope tied on a huge  bar-room, crowded with men,  amongst whom the ladies of Terpsichore wended their way seeking  partners; atintervals could be heard  a strident voice shouting,' "Now  for a nice dreamy waltz,". "Pick  out your partners ladies" ��� etc.  Soon the band struck up a fresh  air in the further room which was  set apart entirely .for the musicians  and dancers. As it happened, foi  some little time, the floor vacant;  with the exception of one couple,  so I had ample time to study them  without being distracted by other  attractions: An incongruous couple  they were too! The woman gorgeously attired in evening .dress,.  rouged aiid powdered up t.i the eyes,  vigorously chewing gum, a d  deporting herself in a manner  which was half 3rd class-- theatrical  and half that of circus, but not  ��� altogether without grace. On her  partner's head was* a broad-brimmed, broncho buster's hat. which  partly hid a serious, set and anxious  face; ou his back was what had once  been a sky-blue mackinaw with six  inch yellow checkers, but which  time and weather had so delapidated  vas to leave exposed in several places,  an i-separable companion of many  months, day or night,���a buckskin  shirt, polished as smooth.as ivory  and black as his, own sto\e; the  ground-work of his nether garments  was brown <anvas, but the seat had  been renovated with the bottom of  an old sardine" tin, and the space  covered with flour-sack patches  was greater than that ofthe original  canvas; he wore on one foot a moeli-  loch*a*'d on the other a wet-sodden  mocassin, which left at every siep'  a mark as if a dead flatfish had  lately reposed there: And all the  time he diligently .masticated the  stump of an execi able cigar that went  out perhaps a week ago, and per-  iormed the acrobatic feat of ejecting  ���a continuous stream of tabacco juice  over his partner'sleftshoulder. I was  fascinated, but soon the room filled,  I lost sight of my entertainers, and  gazing at the crowd, what had  been a novelty soon ceased to be  such and I went lume. But not to  sieep, for everlastingly through the  night I heard the droning of the  caller-off "Ladies in the centre"  "Swing your honey" and my imagination would persist in treating me ,  to unbidden kaleidoscopic views of  the evening's entertainment. --B.
