- By Berton Braley.
He said that he wanted a sensible
c- gH
1 Who wasn't a slave to the fash
ion 'Who didn't much care for the
gay, giddy whirl
Nor follow new hobbies with
passion ' '"'
He? said lhat he wanted a maid
who was sweet
And modest and loving and
tender,
A girl who was careful and dainty
and neat,
Not one who was given to
spendor!
He said that heanted a sensible
girl,
But the kind he was given to
squiring
Were light-headed beauties of
powder and curl
Who he SAID were not worthy
admiring.
The sensible girl-who went mod
estly by
Got scarcely a glance as she
passed him,
While the fashion plate damsel
would capture his eye
And into a ferment would.cast

tle pearl
With -the heart of a wife and
a mother.

Of days and flirtations most
varied,
But for wedlock he wanted a sen
sible girl
And that is the kind that he
married!
Buttons, hand embroidery and
collars and cuffs of fancy silks or
velvets are promised as trim
mings for the fall.
