Own Stage Floor With Hfer.
Pavlowa, who after new trimphs
in London, Paris and New York will
be at -the Textile 'Hall in Greenville
next iFuesday night, has had an ad
Justable and portable dancing floor'
built especially for her which she will
cArry with her from town to town. It
is made of rare Indian tealwood and
so constructed that it will fit the small
est as well as the largest stages in
America. This collapsible floor will
be . transported in four boxes which
have been especially built for this
The reason for the making of this
new device is that the stage floor of
the average out-of-town theatre is so
old and worn and broken it is well
nigh impossible for a dancer to do
Justice to her art, and it is the incom
