Our Cable Service THE TANGO. Paris, Jan. 29. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 2 February 1914
our- Calie SrVice (RsuTERs's TELEonAMi.) THE TANGO. Paris, Jan. 29. The Tango has been danced within the Vatican,with the Pope as an on looker. His Holiness, after having ques tioned several persons concerning the alleged immoral tendency of the step, decided to judge for himself. Accord ingly, two youthful members of the aristocracy in Rome were invited to give a denionstration of the dance at the Vatican. "Well," my dear children, said His Holiness, as the pair completed the movement, "you take your amusement very sndly." Then lie advised them to substitute for the Tango the Venetian dance, known as the Furlinna. Already the Furlana is being prac ticed in Paris, where it is called the "Popie's Dance." The Furlana is a 1 7th century pea. sant dance' which, in recent years, has been called La Gioconda, probably be cause Ponchielli ;embodied it in his opera of that name.

COURRES PON BDE N CE It is to.be distinctly understood that we in .uoiosi identif ourselves with tlheopinioie expressed b,, our c srrespotdlents. CASHMORE V. L.C.B. (To the Editor.) Sir,-The bel lease tone and the challenge flung by the horny hand of Cashmere into the wowsrous face of L.C.B. reminds one of the encounter between Hector and Thersites before the walls of Troy. It will he remem- I beredihat Fpector anl his Trojans were makinga night sortie from the gates, I and after many Greeks had fallen to Hector's spear he was confroiuted by the crouching. figure of the deforned I cripple " Art thoiu for Hector 4" shouted the Trojan champion. "No, no, sir," whines Thersites, 'I am but a filthy rogue, a very scurvy rascal.' Many will think that Bridgewater'a silence and failure to defend iteelf practically amounts to the same admis eion. If Cashmoro's Hector ever meets his Achilles he will not hail from LOB. The reptilian slime of the woweer cau cus is oser it all, enervating the arm...
