A PRETTY GOOD OLD WORLD!
Everybody Loves a Pretty Girl!
It's a pretty good old world, after

trees and pretty flowers and sweet
smelling fields and delightful morn-

fl"1 And doesn't spring always bring
liack the birds and the butterflies and
Biy Surely you won't confess that you
aren't interested in pretty girls!
Why, the man who will say he
doesn't like to see a pretty, happy,
smiling girl, dressed in her spring or
summer clothes, and who just natur
ally makes love to everything in
sight young men, old men, the sky,
the earth, the water, the flowers, the
green grass, the trees, horses and
dogs and Everything Else such a
man is ready to die.
Sure it's a pretty good old world.
There is a black stain upon it just at

purpose, and be washed away and
then the grass will be greener still,
and the flowers even more delightful,
and men more thoughtfully honest,
and girls still prettier, for as the
world recovers it will be very earnest,
Fare so old or so crusty that you
very tender BETTER.
