goose steps, tamping steps, salutes,
double quick and numerous sharp,
short turns, about-faces and halts.
Combined with these is a little out
ward kick, with the toe pointing
backward. This kick comes at the
conclusion of the dance, following
eight long swift forward strides.
In spite of its swift, tense vigor,
there is something catchy and grace
ful about LaRusse. Dancing masters
predict that it will sweep the ball
rooms this winter.
THE CONFESSIONS OF A WIFE
THE ADVICE OF THREE WOMEN
(Copyright, 1914, by the Newspaper Enterprise Association.)
Some way Mary's trouble seemed
to me to be much greater than even
Mother Waverly's. Of course I know
that Dad will never recover in a
short time death will part them
but she has had him years and years.
Death cannot take back their good
times and their companionship to
gether and she will have the knowl
edge that when he leaves her it is
not because he wants to go but be
cause perforce he must; that the
parting win grieve him as much as
it does her. But poor Mary! She
must feel that she alone has been
thrown out of Love's Paradise when
Jack is waiting to install another.
I did not say anything to Dick
about Mary's troubles when he came
home because he was so worried
about his father, who was not yet
conscious. He went back over to his
mother's after dinner.
After he had gone Mrs. Selwin
and Mrs. Wilworth called.
I "was so full of Mary's troubles
that when I thought there was an
appropriate moment to introduce the
subject I cited Mary's case as that
of an out-of-town friend of mine and
asked their advice.
"I do not know what to tell her,"
I said, "as frankly I do not know
what I would do under the circum
stances." "I do," said Mrs. Wilworth, "I
would not live with a man a minute
after I was sure that he had frac
tured the seventh commandment in
would do for I have divorced two hus
bands because I found out that they
were paying attention to other wo
men." "You are making pretty hard con
ditions," said Mrs. Selwin. "I believe
there comes to most women a time
when they are glad that they have
forgiven when infidelity does not
loom up so large on the horizon of
wedded life as it did in the first years
of their marriage.
"They learn the strange lesson or
fact that the woman in a man's arms
is not always the woman In his heart.
"They forgive (and then I was
surprised to see a blaze in Mrs. Sel
win's eyes quickly overshadowed by
a blur of mist that was suspiciously
like tears) but they cannot forget.
The hurt may heal but the scar is
there even when covered with smiles
and a brave deBire to make the most
"I don't believe there is any forgiv
ing or forgetting if one loves at her
best. I am sure that I would have
forgiven John anything," softly
spoke Aunt Mary.
"It Beems to me that real love is so
much bigger than the individual that
most of us do not know it when we
"Both men and women mistake
pleasure for love, simply because
they are not big enough to recog
nize and appreciate love.
"We women think too much," con
tinued Aunt Mary "particularly
when we are young of being loved
and not enough of loving but we
the slighest. I know this is what I , will all come, if we live long enough,
