PRETTY SUMMER COSTUME
With many of the new summer
gowns, little hats that in a way
match the gown will be worn. The
dress pictured is of polka-dotted
foulard, with dull green dots on a
tan ground. For this gown one can
use the bordered material which is to
be worn again this spring. A polka
dotted gown will have a striped bor
der. The skirts of all the new dresses
do not show any slits, and there are
buttons galore everywhere they can
be placed.
The vest and collar are made of
white corded marsailles.
The touch which makes this hat
"match" the costume is the striped
ribbon of blue and green which trims
it. The hat itself is of black lace,
with a black feather "stick-up."
THE INNER FURPOSE
By Berton Braley.
Algernon Mortimer Harold McSquee
Was rather a notable person to see,
For his nose was the hue of a Malaga
grape
And his body was formed in a spher
ical shape,
While his eyes, they were square, and
his ears they were cubes
Which were tied to his head with two
flexible tubes;
In brief, he was quaint as a person
can be,
Was Algerson Mortimer Harold Mc
Squee! Algernon Mortimer Harold McSquee
Eived wholly on muffins and sassa
fras tea,
Which he ate with a spoon on a bench
in the park
From ten in the morning till long
after dark;
He always wore suits which were
purple and pink
And filled up his pockets with
crullers and ink;
He talked like a parrot who'd swal
. lowed a flea,
Did Algernon Mortimer Harold Mc
Squee! Algernon Mortimer Harold McSquee
Is neither a friend or relation to me ;
If he walks on his hands with his
whiskers aflame .
Why should I. be troubled? He's only
a name!
A name I invented with pleasure in
tense To fit into verses quite vacant of
sense
A lyrical monaker quite bubbling
with glee,
Is "Algernon Mortimer Harold Mc
Squee!" The world's annual use of 30 bil-
tof postage stamps, with a face
: of more than a billion dollars,
for the labor of 300,000 persons
oducing, distributing and can
celling. "
