Terpsichorean distortions, however,
SHUNNED BY THOSE
WHO LOVE THE ART
Public Halls Keep Out Folk
Who Vulgarize the Mod
ern Steps and Encourage
Are modern dnncca ViccomlnR unpop
ular, too difficult, too kaleidoscopic?
There la llttlo reason for bellovInB so.
Never liaa thla pastime been so univer
sal na at present, never has the keen
Interest and enthusiasm been manifest
that Is sen on every hand today. And
why? Because, say. dancing instructors,
the new dances are of a charactor and
beauty which warrant popularity.
Thousands who havo held up their
hands In holy hornr at tho mere mon
tlon of a "modern" danco aro being con
vinced dally that tho supposedly "vul
Bnr" steps nro In reality Rraceful and
without suGBCstlon of tho Improper.
It Is true that the modern dances, or
any danco for that matter, may bo vul
Karlzod, but It Is onl thoso who have
not had proper Instruction who distort
the steps. Hut with the Krcatly In
creased popularity of tho public danco
halls this objection Is rapidly belnf; over
come. Once more tho puritanic raise their
hands In holy horror. The public danco
halt! Horrible! DIsKraceful! And yet
It Is a fact that such people are as far
amiss In their conception of tho halls as
they are In that of tho dances.
At one time tho public dance hall was
-well, not what It should havo been.
Hut conditions change, reform begins and
the purifying process Is speedily real
lied. Xo belter example of this exists
than the public dance halls, The class
of people who visit them Is not a "vul
gar crowd"; on tno contrary, they are
patronized by perfectly respectable. In
fact, iiltra-rcspectablo people who desire
Instruction In tho dances that they may
avoid the criticism which would Justly
fall upon them If they danced the newer
fteps without knowing how.
Thev not only accomplish their purpose,
but do so at no expense, for Instruction
In buiii halls Is given freo of charge, ant
then, too. they have an opportunity to
dance with other enthusiasts, and thero
Is perhaps im quicker method of be
coming proficient In the steps than by
dancing with a number of persons.
DANCES AUK "STANDARDIZED."
Again, the public halls have responded
to tho e!cated tone of the modern dances
in ways too numerous to mention. Great
care has been taken to provide proper
Ventilation, tho music Is of the very best
and eery precaution Is taken to keep ab
solutely every objectionable would-be
patron from gaining admission to the
An objection to tho new dances often
Tieard Is that you must know Just how
your partner does the steps In order to
avoid hopeless confusion. "Again, the pub
llo dance hall must be painted out as the
means by which this difficulty Is obviated,
for the dances aro rapidly being "stan
dardized." and In halls where everyone
has learned tho standard steps no such
dilfUultj U experienced.
Another charge which Is frequently
Brought up In opposition to the dances
as expiessed the other day by a girl
Who "didn't know."
"What s the ute of my learning them?"
rne aski. "Hofore I learn to do one well
another will have bobbed up and I'll be
as badly off as ever."
nEAITIPUI, DANCES SURVIVE,
This is a fallacy. It Is true that new
dances are appearing, but It Is not true
that they drive the others out. The
Twinkle." the "Fox Trot" and others
numbering a legion may appear, but will
not dislodge tho "Maxlxe," the "Tango"
lina the "Hesitation" When a dance Is
wund to be beautiful It does not give
ay In any short space of time to newer
nances which prove to be less beautiful,
lor, although the country may bo "dance
". It Is discriminating; the ugly
oance perishes, but the graceful remains.
r. ik. , c0"nry Is Just realizing the
ti ?'b")Ues ot the "poetry of motion" U a

WASHINGTON. Oct.. 21,-Through tho
safety first movement, advocated by the
United States Bureau of Mines In tho
rrotal mines of tho country, a decreas
ing death rate has resulted among the
Tho bureau today Issued Its report on
tho number of deaths ln the metal mines
for tho year 1913, showing CSS men killed
among 1D3.0S8 employed, a death rate pr
1C00 employed of 3.54. This compares with
n death rato of 3.91 for tho year 1912 nnd
4.19 for the year 1911. As Indicating tho
progress being made, the bureau declares
that If tho 1311 death rato had prevailed
In 1913, tho number killed would havo
been SOU Instead of C3. This means u
saving of 12tJ lives for the year.
"A number of tho States show n slight
Incrnaso In death rates, but a majority of
tho principal mining States show marked
decreases," says Albert II. Fay, tho bu
reau engineer who compiled the Mntls
tlca. "The Important mining Stntea show
ing a continuous reduction of fatality
rates during 1911, 1912 and 1911 are Idaho,
Michigan, Montnna, Nevada, Now Jersey,
South Dakota and Utah, representing. In
1913, 33 per cent, of the mining Industry."
This grudual reduction. Mr. Fay adds. Is
to bo accounted for largely by tho intro
duction of safoty appliances, better super
vision nnd a more strict enforcement of
