George du Maurier Cartoons from Punch magazine

A Distinction and a Difference. Giorgiu Midas Junior (a crack dancer in his own set) gets a card for a dance at Stilton House, and waltzes with Mrs Posonby de Tomkyns, the only lady he knows there, and who has often been his partner under the paternal roof. Proudly conscious of creating a sensation, he is dancing his very best, when - Mrs Posonby de Tomkyns (suddenly). "We'd better stop, Mr Midas! This form does very well at Midas Towers, but it doesn't do here!" [GM's "form," which is not restricted to himself, consists in holding his partner like a banjo, and hopping slowly round her beneath a chandelier.
