n
jewels would almost turn the brain
of an ordinary female, wants to play
a "rags" part
She has 200 hats in her wardrobe
and nearly half a thousand aigrets of
every color and size imaginable. She
has enough French creations for aft
ernoon and evening to fill 18 trunks.
And among her fabulous fur collec
tion is a $35,000 black Russian sable
coat, one of two made for the czarina
of Russia.
Her pearls are almost priceless and
her jeweled pieces for neck and arms
are a blaze of costly diamonds and
rubies.
Yet, after displaying the exquisite
contents of her wardrobe and jewel
box, Fannie Ward energetically an
nounced. "I am sick to death of
clothes. I want to play a 'rags' part
next time. There's nothing in clothes.
They don't mean anything. They re
Ifeless."

RED TAPE
the breath of the wolf was hot and
dread,
ut hope revived where it long had
fled
Sweet Charity heard her cry for
bread.
(Her sky was blue but the Tape was
red.)
Full were their coffers, to riches wed,
Given by many whose hearts had
bled,
Given that starving ones might be
fed.
(The gold was yellow, but the Tape
was red.)
They had no loaf for her need, they
said,
They had to give with a careful head;
They filed her name on a card in
stead. (Her sky was lead and the Tape was
red.)
They brought her dole when a month
had sped,
Brought food and help to her wretch
ed bed:
Being impatient, she lay there dead.
(The crepe was black and the Tape
was red.) Puck.
