In to day's article two of the more difficult steps are il lustrated and fully de scribed. For a baH room or drawing reora. dance nothing could be prettier. By DONArD BRIAIf, Star of "The Marriage Market" Copyright 1913, International News Service. THE most difficult part of the fifth movement lies in the fact that there are a great many steps for ! the eight counts. And, furthermore, the I steps have bo apparent connection that is, fie doesn't follow easily from the other, as was evident in the more simple measures. The fifth movement may. be said to be divided into two distinct parts the nev dip, which is really difficult and the pirouette, which requires individual movement en the part of each dancer. As to position, the turkey trot pose is resumed, and the movement starts with the maa sad girl simultaneously point ing forward with the left foot, and then across the right with the left. -This is done twice, the dip coming when the left An Old Her Letters STPfOPSIS OF EltBCKDING CHATTERS. The letters are exchanged between Laura Crawley, who started out to make a career for herself in New- York in gram opera, out nas xinaiiy arinea into musical comedy... and her mother,-) -who is running a small hotel in the little town of Holbrooke, Va., close to a fahsionable summer hotel known as the Homestead. Mr. and Mrs. Hurley are & New York couple who had taken Laura under their wing-, but who, it now appears, have become estranged. Mrs. Hurley proceeding to the west to obtain a divorce. Jim Burke is a former suitor of Laura who has de cided to marry another girl who has always remained faithful to him Molly Siddons. Although he feels that there is no use waiting for Laura, and intends to marry Molly, he asserts that if. Laura should send for him at any time he would go to her, wife of no wife. Laura intimates, mischievously, that she may send for him. Mrs. Craw ley's trials with her husband and her son Phil also figured in preceding let ters. After a modern New York court ship Laura finally announces to her mother that she intends to marry Mr. Hurley as soon as nfs wife receives the divorce she is seeking. A Mother's Pleading.

Some time, if it Is not too much of a strain after your Saturday night performance, I wish you would run down to Hol brooke and. if nossiMe. bring Mr. Hur ley with yeu. The times when I met ! him with Mrs. Hurley -were not adapted to the study I would like to i make now that I am thinking of hinr-1 as a possioie soniniaw, Oh. my dear.

It is something a mother rarely tells h. daughter, but it may help' you. Five years after I married your father I knew that my happiness -with him was nothing but an idle dream. As you know, he drank. I thought that he could check his growing appe tite, but I guess he did not try very hard. When I realized the mistake I had made I felt very hopeless. So long as I denied the truth to myself. I felt hopeful. It is sometimes better to deny the truth to yourself, my Laura, especially when it is not good for you to know it. That is what I tried to do. But the day came when I had to admit it. I knew that my marriage was a failure: that all the romance had gone out of it and that It would never be the same again.

This part of the movement takes lourot tne eignt counts 01 tne measure. The other four counts constitute the pirouette. The dip should be done rap idiy'so as to get back quickly into the turkey trot position, and immediately on the fifth count the man and girl turn completely around back to back in a pirouette At the completion of the "turn the regular turkey trot position is again assumed for the beginning-of the sixth movement. A Difficult One. The dip in this movement is a diffi cult one, because it comes on a side movement instead of the more ordinary dip backward like the California dip of the third movement. It will be diffi cult, too, to dip in this fashion and pre- - Fashioned Mother to Her New-Fashioned Daughter as a weakling, even though' a reformed weakling. From that time on, it seemed, every thing he did irritated me the wav hi ate, ,hls silly attempts at humor, his vain attempts to keeD awav from drink. Every woman likes to think that her husband la still hnr Imror hut I didn't. When he even suggested af fection for me it was nauseating. In thiB state of affairs I met Mr. Trask, a fine, upstanding man, who was carving a career from the world I guess he really pitied me at first and then loved me. He asked me to divorce your father and then marry him. I dreaded all that, the notoriety, the sense of failure, and my impulse was just to take you and Phil Phil was just a baby then and run away with Mr Trask. But I knew that I would not find happiness that way; that the fu ture of my children would be clouded and that my duty was to stay with, your father. So Mr. Trask rwent away. More than a score of years have passed since then and I met Mr. Trask recently, still unmarried. I knew what I had lost, but was glad. I don't tell you this to make myself heroic, but to show you that the hard est way is sometimes best. At least it enables us to conquer ourselves and to win a sense of reserved power.

In a month, they will be divorced, perhaps sooner. As Mrs. Hur ley claims her mother's home as her own, she does not have to establish a residence, and as her suit is uncon tested, there will be no delay in hand ing down the decree. Mr. Hurley has been very liberal about money settle ments and my conscience is clear on that score. There s no need, mother,, dear, for you to send me any more checks. I am returning this one. I am earning enough to keep me in comfort. I ex pect to be married shortly after the divorce is granted and will leave the stage at once. I am glad that Jim and Molly are to be married and hope they will be happy. Loye, mother dear, from Laura. Mother Gives Up. Holbrooke, Va Nov. 5. LAURA DEAR: There is nothing more to be , said. Nothing that I could say would change you in your determina tion to'"marry ll?. Hurley. You have always been wilful I don't say this a criticism and New York, with Its gay life, its luxuries and its general ten dency to weaken the will of the strongest, has swept you from your old moorings of sound church teach ings. You are walkinc hv the side of an abyss and you will have to pro ceed -carefully and cautiously less you topple over. Have you made absolutely sure that there is no chance for a reconciliation between Mr. and Mrs. Hurley? The great duty' that confronts all of us is not to go out andreform the world, but to do what we can for those near est us. There are so many women to day who neglect their own homes and their own husbands and children in order to save the world from its fol ly. When so many women try to do everybody's work, their own remains undone. Your duty Is to make absolutely sure that there is no chance for reconciliation between Mr. and Mrs. Hurley. You do not want to wait un til it is too late. I caji't dissuade you from mawying him, dear, but oh, can't I persuade you to go slow and not to deceive yourself or let him deceive himself? Please, dear, do this for your mother. Phil has lost his position at the hotel. He says it was not the right kind of work, clerking In a fashion able hotel. "You know, mother," he said to me, "that .you yourself said It was a frivolous feort of occupation and that there was no future In it" "Yes," I answered, wearily, "but you said that there was a future in it; that some day you might own a hotel of your own, and that it was the one thing at which you thought you could make a success." But." said Phil, "you told me my argument.-, were all wronir: that 1 could really be of more use working in learning, the battle is half won: but this movement is complicated and:nee3? practice, ' ., v The pirouette is" simplytieSturning. of j the body on tHe ball of th&Jeft'foot' and swinging, the right .foot '' around .'into place.

I had said that, but, oh, what's the use? Phil will never understand that there is a virtue in persistence. He gives nothing a fair trial. Everything that he tries Is fine at first, but then proves to bo terrible. I told him that if he would do any kind of work, and stick to it, he would make a success of It, but that jumping about this way was demoralizing his character. He says I am the most unreasonable' per son he ever knew; that first I say a position is not the right kind and then, when Ji'e leaves It. that ho should have stuck 'to It.

That Is the first time I ever read a note of real weariness in one of your letters. You should rest. You should not try to struggle with such a queer world. Worries' don't right any wrong or change the course of events. I have spoken to Mr. Hurley about Phil and he says he will give him a position In one of- his banks; make him start at the bottom and -work up wards. He promises to discharge him instantly if he falls to make good. I insisted on that. What do you think of this? Would It- -oe too lonesome for you without Phil? He has always wanted to come to New York and this is his chance. If you think It best for him. Of course. I won't say a word abouh it to Phil. It will be for you to decide, mother dear. - It will . worry me to have you re main In Holbrooke alone, except for father, who is not much consolation to you. But J. want to. help some how and I thought this might be the way. I have a folding tied In my lit tle parlor and I would be' glad to give Phil the bedroom and sleep in the parlor erery night. But I dread your being alone at Holbrooke, although the hotel is probably crowded and 1 suppose the neighbors continue to drop In every five minutes to tell you. their troubles. When I am married, mother, dear, I want you to give up that old hotel and come here to New York and live with me. Oh, I know what you will say; that married couples had better live alone; that a motherlnlaw or a fatherlnlaw Introduces a dangerous element Into the family. But this won't be so In our case, mother dear, r have read your recent letters to Mr. Hurley. Now don't scold. He Is too big and fine not to understand your -warnings against him. He is quite insistent that you should live with us. I hate to say this, and you will think me very terrible. I know, but for the first time in my life, I under stand what you have gone through With-' father and evpn ryn-nr It- -nrrtTllrt be better for you to leave him and J come here and live with us. There Is j no sense In nrnnnlni. n. t.i HfA an ! longer. Let him shift for himself. iou and PHll and Mr. Hurley and 1 can live here In comfort and con tentment. Please be reasonable and sensible, mother dear. I am almost scared lest you take this the wrong ! way. but I mean it for the best, j dear. You have worked long enough ; and this Is your chance, as well as ) mine.

This costume illustrates the charm of a black gown, and we heartily recommend it to the girl of limited wardrobe and tothe woman who is blessed by dozens of "creat-ons." , The bodice is gathered at the shoulder under a long flattab, which continues down the loose sleeve of ninon, whkk is canght into a small bracelet of taffeta at the wrist. The blouse crosses in front and the frills follow a- surplice line. Over the skirt, which drapes in front under a bow, hangs a short tunic This tunic is laid in plaits and is short in front and lengthens in the swallowtail line at the back.
