How to grasp a girl's wrist to learn if she loves you.
Here's an infallible test to discover
if the girl you're in love with recip
rocates your affection.
The secret was discovered by Dr.
W. Percy Hickling, a noted alienist
of Washington, D. C, who has placed
love-making on a scientific basis.
A woman's ulse will tell the tale
of her affections every time, contends
Dr. Hickling. All you have to do to
find out if her heart beats for you is
to put your finger on her wrist and
note the Dulse. This can be done
under the preten.se of merely hold-l
ing her hand. It is of course pre
sumed that you have enough of her
favor to undertake such familiarity.
It's taking a rather mean advan
tage of the lady of your heart's de
sire,, but anything is fair in love, as
e,very one knows.
if her pulse goes up like a sky
rocket the moment you touch her
hand you may be certain that she
loves you. If there is no immediate
rise of the heart barometer, begin a
casual, teasing conversation in which
you mention, one after another, the
names of your suspected rivals. If
the girl's pulse begins to hammer
hard upon the mention of any cer
tain name you may be certain that
you have learned the identity of her
favored suitor. If it mounts to about
100 per minute well, you might as
well quit She's head over heels In
love with the man whose name has
thus excited her.
Now, keep this thing a secret, boys.
Don't let the girls get wise. They
might refuse to let s hold their
hands altogether, especially during
that trying period in which we're try
ing to discover just what they do
think of us.
