End on with the dance. fox trot on account of its quick step .is an ideal one for exercise and especially following the twe-stepi which although not fast is the means of stimulating the dancer for the follow- ing number. The waltz is the lest period to a certain extent, but it should keep one seeking the exercise in the proper spirit. "Dancing should be taken up by the govern- ment arid platforms erected in the "open air for the people. .In the public parks during rhe sunv raer months it is customary to hold band concerts-- It would be an easy matter to conduct dances at the same time and furnish the exercise needed by many. In former years public dances were held the recreation piers along the walerironts of A Palm Beach Episode. coast and lake cities. This practice should again be revived. The p'eopjp need exercise nnd Ihcy shouid be educated to lhur benefits from dancing.

'And the fceliu? of youllifulness is a cure'that cannot be fcpatea.-" I have talked Vitli mr.ny doctors, and I am, reinforced in ihc belief that dancing has a wider indorsement than it ever lias enjoyed, and thai it is coming into a wider popularity than it lias yet known. 'Of course each person for himself (and. herself) what limits arc to be applied.

Even on the Beach the Dance Is Infectious. By Barbara Craydon THE days when the dance was regarded tither as a frivolity or as an exploit for the young seems lo be gone forever. Whether you or riot, yon must nave noticed that a gray-headed dancer no longer excites 'any notice, as he or she once diJ. tan rtrilembcr when the elderly or evert the middle-aged wallzer was an exceptional incident. Now it is as riormal as any other incident of the dance floor- .Dancing is no longer a young people's affair. So thai there is really nothing ititllijiK in the by Dr. li'jbert E. Coughlin, a praclising physician who has given special atten- tion lo questions of physical euUurc, that men and women should not stop dancing at 50. On the contrary, Dr. Coughlin makes dancing a mat- ter duty. You are not lo Ell back in smoking- jackct nnd slippers or kimono and dressing aMcs. That old stufl' about.lhe heart is out of'late.

Pupils are coming lo me every week who. stale that they have been sent lo learn dancing by their physician has .prescribed, [lancing for whatever ailing they have hail, just Vsi he would prescribe medicine for .such physical 'ills as-demanded medicine.. In more than have physician call on me even before his patient Had" appeared and, telling nib that he had in mind sending to me such and such a patient suffering from 'some trouble or olher that he felt the cxerciso'of dancing woulrl relieve, anJ we have talked case oiiv logelher-until we have decided upon a pre- scription of dancing for from business worries and Ihc wearing cares and anxieties, of the social whirl. These last arc .people of middle or past middle-age mostly. TnVre is nothing like n good dance make a man or woman" forgc.t his or her troubles. A rarm can't dance-nnd think of-his business problems nt thl Fame time, and, while the mind of a woman is .ordinarily capable beyoml the ken of, I don't bttlicve-lhal even a woman can dance nnd coincidenlnlly'worry over anything- Aii Exercise for All Ages All. exercise is'good for young and old, and the more nil 'round the exercise can. be made the greater Ihe good.

Con you imagine a man carrying a grouch through the rhythm n the exhilaration of a good one-slop or fox-trot? There arc more middle-need and old people dancing today ever before in Ihe history of Ihc it is doing wonders for them. As men and women grow old they nrc given to 'doing only the things which arc done with the greatest case and least would rather ride about in a motor car than walk; they like to go to the theatre and watch a play because thcv can sit quietly in a comfortable seat and be en- tertained without any call for cyirtion being made upon them. They like-thcir cushion rockers I and couches, but they don't like to move about much. They 'avoid the very thing they need Now Iho dance them like exercise; it is exercise in a form that wins them; you might try until your patience is exhausted to get'Chcm to go lo a gym, or ride horseback or go swimming or do any 'of hundred ami one things that would give them beneficial exercises, but when llicj once learn lo d.incc, they will dance. Fancy Dancing for Exercise Fancy dancing is gaining in popularity every day. I hove many pupils who come to me for the fancy, dances who want to Itarn them just for-the exercise1 they offer. Many of thtsc pupila never expect to appear in public or even before their friends in Iho dances, but they will come here linve after time and work like leavers just' for the good they can get Ihe dances for As 'for the new dances, lhat is, social dances, there are no new features worth speakinp; of. "Of course, we have the nnd I have heard of the "bolshevik! but such dariccs arc not taken seriously- Vl'hc real people (ire not dancing them. No, the dances which hold real place loday are the one-step, Ihc fox-trot and the old-fashioned waltz with, some modern variations. 1 believe that the fox-trot is the most popular drvncc today. i Original Coney Island in Ireland Once a Pencil Colony of Americans who arc crtr Jar spot on Lough is known throughout rpartv if.
