IT WOULD HELP SOME ON MOVING DAY, THIS
"BIRD-CAGE" EARRING FASHION
London, England. You might think it was the worried housewife with
visions of May day moving before her that invented the "bird cage" ear
rings. ' But it wasn't, though there's no knowing how soon she'll adopt this
convenient way of transporting her pet canary. t
The cute little cage -was invented by a cute little jeweler for the special
benefit of "the fool and her money," the woman who likes to be "different"
There are lots of them jn London, and, though the "bird. cages" sell for $500
each they are quite the Tage in smart society.

'Cause I'm rockin' the baby to
The dear little fellow should rest well
So everyone quiet must keep.
He has just had his bottle, he's snug
His eyelids are heavy as lead.
The sandman may come and he'll
stay through the night,
To rest up the tiny tot's head.
I have sung rockabye-'till my throat

I've exhausted the tunes that I
But I'm willing to warble for several

So he's going to have colic, I know.
Little sister, please get me his medi
It will settle his tummy, they say..
And you know we don't want the
chid to be sick,
He's been feeling so lively today..
Now he's hreathing quite steady, the
And so has the colic I dread.
If sister will fix things and do as I say,
We yiil put little brother to bed.
