Southern Relief Society Can Stand the Dance, But
Not the Music--So "One-Step" Will Be Worst
at Ball on January 27.
One may dance decorously any decor
ous dance at the Southern ball. One
may even "turkey-trot," provided one
cans it the "one-step." a name now be'
ing employed to take the curse off. But
there will be no especial "turkey trot
music .Such Is the vote and decision of
the Southern Relief Society, which held
its monthly meeting last night and
acted on this now really momentous
Mrs. Francis Cliisholm, chairman of
the ball committee, and Miss Nannie
Randolph Heth, president of the society,
led the opposing sides In the debate.
Mrs. Chisholm made the point rather
effectvely that the "gallops" and "rack
ets" of a bygone day were Just about
as hoydenlsh and ungraceful as the
modern dances of today. "And no one
threw any throes about the gallop and
the .racket," added Mrs. Chisholm.
Kickers Never Saw It
The point was also made that a great
deal of the opposition to the "turkey
trot" comes from persons who have not
seen it danced or who have seen some
exaggerated form or fashion of the
dance on the stage.
Miss Heth was not reconciled to the
decision of the meeting which refused
to lay any decisive ban on the "turkey
trot" or the "one-step," and In her of
fical capacty ordered that no "tur
key-trot" music be played by the
bands. This can only be Interpreted
to mean that no rag-time playing be
indulged In by either the Marine or
Fifteenth Cavalry bands which play al
ternately at the Southern ball. For
there is. of course, no such a thing as
"turkey-trot" music proper, (or im
proper). The "turkey-trot" or the

PITTSBURGH. Jan. 14.-One pair of
pink satin corsets $16.50 shattered the
romance of Frank P. Henry, a well-to-do
automobile man. who appeared in

from A gees Henry. Nothing crimps
the husband's happiness so quickly as
a woman's determination to wear ex

The pair was married July, 1910, in
Greensburg. Pa., and came to Pitts
burgh on their honeymoon. And did
some shopping. Altnough he admitted

When yoa buy eggs, you're mighty careful to try to get
eggs that are good, both inside and out. When vou
bay oranges and grapefruit, why not do the same?
.You know that some oranges and grapefruit are
pithy, dry, and sour, and others are full of sweet, delicious
juice. You simply can't tell these, apart by the looks.
You have been deceived so many times in buying
dtrus fruit that you think getting good fruit is a matter
of luck. It isn't. It's a matter of information knowing
what's what, and insisting on having it when you buy.
lew Tm Hay Always Get Qi HarMa Frail
When you buy oranges and grapefruit from boxes bearing
(in red) the brand of the Florida Citrus Exchange, you remove
the chance pf getting bad fruit. The Exchange St, an organiza
tion of progressive fruit-growers, who ripen their crops on the
trees and who pick them only when they. are sweet and full of juice.
The association ii maintained for mutual benefit, not for profit.
and the reputation established tor its brand is its greatest asset.
Therefore, you may be assured that the Exchange will always pack
only the best of the best Honda fruit in the boxes bearing its
guarantee of quality. You are safe when you buy in these -boxes.
