WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1910 SEMI-WEEKLY COURIER-TIME8. A LOST INSPIRATION Seated one day at the mirror, I was weary of rats and puffs; And my Angers wandered idly Over the curls and fluffs. I know not what I was building Or what I was mimicking, But I struck a sort of coiffure Like the head of an Aztec kins: It flooded my brow and my temple In a most expansive way; And It lay on my cerebellum Like an overweight ton of hay It fell Into fluffy billows, Like that foolish old silky floss; It seemed a harmful ms jumble Of excelsior and moss. It linked alii my t i -el waving Into a hutany heap; Then coiled in a roly poly, Like a kitten going to sleep. I have sought, but I seek it vainly. That one coiffure so fine- That came from the head of an Aztec And decorated mine. It may be in some show windiow That style I can yet procure; And it may be that only in Juja I shall find that grand coiffure. —Carolyn Wells BHÍ FOR THE FAIR If we are to judge by the following notice appearing in the Li...
