A society story is just going the round of the papers. At the court ball tho Prince of Wales asked a girl to dance with him—a great honor, by the way, and one eagerly desired by most ladies. It was, therefore, matter for amazement when the lady declined ou a plea of weariness. Tight shoes are said to have prompted tho refusal; but the I'rince'a wish is really tantamount to a command, and Albert Edward Prince of Wales, though most kind hearted, will not tolerate a breach of etiquette whore himself is concerned, so he refused to notice tho denial, and took summary possession of the unwilling girl. The Prince waltzed twice round the room with this distressed victim of fashion and her own folly. Twin girls, weighing together only 51b lloz, were born in New York a few days ago. The attending physician, in his report to the Bureau of Vital Statistics, said that " the babies were healthy, possessed of good I lungs, and pleasant in appearance."
