FIND THE FOX TROT
EASIEST FOR PUPILS
JVIore Natural Than Lu Lu

Therefore More Likely to
"Which of all the new dances that have
cropped Up during the summer will ti
danced generally enotiRh to make It worth
while for me to bo to somo trouble and
expense to learn them?"
One of the best dancing teachers In the
city was naked this question y one of
his fair pnlrohs a day or two ago.
"I nm not," she went on, "a very good
dancer lcally, you know. Not gooJ
enough for It not to be very hard for me
to pick up new steps. Last winter 1
ppent hours trying to get the Idea of the
'half and half,' only to find that Just ns
I was getting fairly proficient It luul
teased to be popular and all my work had
Rone for nothing
"Now, of nil these strange dnnces with
utranger names Lu Lu Fado, Ta-Tao, La
Kusse and the like wjileh shall I learn?"
"Well," replied the Instructor, "the best
answer I can give you Is that an long an
there seems to bo any question about
-which Is the one to learn, don't learn
ADVISBS THE FOX TROT.
''In confidence," he added, "for I don't
want to spoil my own business, r think
that of the entire lot the only one wortit
while for the average dancer to learn Is
the Fox Trot. She will find that she
won't really have to learn that: It will
come so easily and naturally. And that
Is the real test of popularity.
"These periodic hysterical dashes nfter
new steps. Inespectlvo of their merits.
Is the most unfortunate phase of the
dancing crnze. All the dances you men
tioned arc beautiful when '!! done, but
the Idea of considering them as adapted
to a ballroom full of tlanccts Is absurd.
"The Tn Tno was never meant to bo
done any way but In Chinese costumi.
Then It It quaint and Interesting as a
novelty, otherwise It Is a burlesque. The
Lu Lu Fado Is no more extreme than the
Maxlxc, but how many people did you
ever see who could do the Maxlxe really
well? The same It true of La Russe.
They will probably all bo danced more
or lesq. hut the times when they will
really afford pleasure to either the per
formers or spectators will be very few
and far between.
NATURAL DANCES THE BEST.
"If theio never had been any dances
but the strango ones, as you call them,
wo would never have had this dancing
craze. It found Its Inspiration In the
one-step and the waltz-canter nnd other
natural, easy dances, which anybody can
do and do without thinking.
"As my final woul of advice never do
any dance that makes you conspicuous
or diaus undue attention to yourself, un
less ou are quite suro it Is because you
are dancing extraordinarily well, rather
tnan because you are attempting some
thing nobody else had the nervo to try."

"We Intend to have a series of 12 card

localities they nre Intended to serve. The
care of babies In hot or cold weather will
be thoroughly delineated as well as proper
clothing and food to bo given Infants."
This new departure of the Federation

Up to date Spruce street Is a home and

those desiring solid comfort nnd quiet.
Not more than a decade ago the char

red brick house, with white trimmings
and marble steps: some may yet be

en's New Fall Overooaits
to a few years ago there was aboot as nmuicfo
iodividimality in American men's overcoats as there is in
a wagonioad of bricks.

the standard, conservatively cut bJack and oxfford coats.

The best showing in fancies is at $15, $88, $20, $22 SO
The bfaek and oxford coats go from $115 to $30.
