Maylands (By 'Out-of-Order') Danny Foley has been wondering if he was seen on the Midland Junction Station on Sunday morning week. Ob, yes, Danny, you were seen all right.

Ainos not Hairy [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 8 May 1921

Jli»o$ Dot fairy Fiction has ever a losing fight against fact. We have been used to being told about the 'Hairy Ainos' of Japan, and now it seems that they are no woolier than any body else. Those persons who have' been used to picturing Mrs. and Mr. Aino as arrayed in nice outfits of curiy fir, somewhat like Fido or Rover, must readjust their concep tion. A scientific expedition has just discovered that, though head bair is abundant in both sexes, and though the males have a dense and heavy growth of beard on the face, it is hair and not fur. Although the expedition found that the Aino ladies had lost their wool they .found them still possessed of a charming characteristic in these da3's of sexual equality. The Aino woman considers herself the natural inferior of man. This is never ar gued, always admitted. If a man and a woman meet upon the trait, the woman at once steps to the side for him to pass. At the same time she takes the .cloth band from her head and1 lays it over her lef...

Smart Indoor Modes [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 14 May 1921

Smart Indoor Modes The one-piece dress, or its near est equivalent, is holding popular fancy just now, not only as a house frock, but as something very easy to wear under a scarf to suit the wea tlisr of to-day, or under the coat which we will gladly slip on as thc days become cooler. It is always simple and always as straight as the figure wtfl ullow, and rarely has much trimming. In fact, since the dress is the «cnle of simplicity all fussiness of detail would be utterly out of place- Thus hfej-e, panniers and flounced trim mings are an impossibility; any re lief must be given by braid, or em broidered effects, or by the way -hi which a sash mav be tied. In many of the flannel frocks nothing is moie. popular for the trimming than wool, particularly as some excellent color etfects can be achieved in this way. Any number of combinations sug- v gest themselves, such, for inftam-^ as nigger flannel with green, henna, blue, or fawn wool; dark green re lieved with biscuit, 'or for a you...
