Trenton Evening Times (Trenton, NJ) 

Footnote:  The highly publicized Beattle case of 1911 involved the state of Virginia's charge against Henry Clay Beattle Jr., in the murder of his wife.  Beattle died in the electric chair about a week after this article was published.  He claimed his innocence throughout his trial but confessed on death row.  Unclear is why this case was cited as "an example of the evils to which dancing led."
