GIRL#, YOU'RE NOT POLITE. i Anothor Outburst by the Cantankeroua Crank. Girls, you are doubtless very clia rul ing In your low-necked./ blouses, short aklrtH, and delicious stockings, yet I would fain point out one or two-faults which most of you display—and when It comes to display, my cry Is: "Leas stocking and .more thoughtfulneBB."

Of course, they may have had good be havior spanked into them, but, never theless, it is more than skin deep. It Ib my misfortune to travel a good deal In trains and 'buses. You, girls, flaunting your fatal beauty, haunt me in those dangerous vehicles, and with that Inborn chivalry which lurks In every male bosom, I render you oc casional small services. I open a car riage d...
