AN ARTFUL MAID. "If you fondly loved me, darling," In her oar he whispered low; "Why unto my first proposal, Did you sadden me with 'No?'" "Well," replied the happy maidem, In between a bill and coo, "I'm afraid did It merely, Just to see what you would do." "But," her lover fond protested, In a tone approaching pain, "What If I had rushed off wildly, Never coming back again?"

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 16 May 1914
LITTLE DRAIN WAVES., Handsome men are generally only clothes-props, Crylin' over spilt milk ain't no good -it on'y makes it skimmier, A man may find a woman's eyeos beautiful and never know the exact color of them. The real man.hater doesn't exist, and the sham one gives up directly her lips are kissed. The capable woman will always have a baby to nurse, and the baby will be her husband. Poetky is a charming hobby, but there's no money in it, and it has a shocking effect on the hair. The happlest woman is the one who does not marry the man she loves; then she can go on loving him. Most women regard men as they do the Ten Commandments-something to be studied, but not obeyed. It's easiest to get a man to marry you when he first loses his head; then he'll do anything, and not know he's doing it. A platonic friendship usually ends in the woman losing her heart and the man his temper , , , or the man his appetite and the woman her complexion. Modest demeanor is not only becom. lng but di...

Why dost thou shatter our ideals and cast down our illusions? Why dost thou make Idle lests of all thlings beautiful under the sun?" And I have greeted them with pity in mine eyes, For I looked at them and saw that they were blind! Then I answered them sorrowfully, s?aying: "Lo, my beloved son, open thino eyes.and thou shalt see that I do not mock at marriage, neither do 1 laughi at love.
