AH very lovely; romance, love, joy.
marriage!
But what of me?
I'm the girl-on the park bench; the
girl in the hall bedroom.
I'm the girl that has plenty of
room in her heart for love, but can
find no room in which to receive her
lover.
Let me tell you MY story and you
may be sure it is the story of thou
sands of other girls good giris, self
respecting girls but girls with the
same love of romance, the same
longing for attention, the same de
sire to hug love to their hearts, as
actuates the sheltered daughters of
Mrs. Millionaire.
I have no mother or father. "When
I came to' this city I applied for a
room to a boarding house much
patronized by working giris.
The day I went to work I caught
the eye of the young man at the
next desk. It was love' at first sight
In two days he invited me out to
lunch and in a week he was calling
regularly at the boarding place. I
had to meet him in the public par
lors. One night we seemed lo be alone.
Tom grabbed me convulsively. "I
love you, Ethel," he said huskily,
and as he was kissing me we heard
the dragon's voice:
"Miss G , you will give up
your key immediately. We only keep
respectable girls here."
"But" I tried to explain.
"No explanation is necessary. I
saw you."
"Well, is there anything so awful
in a kiss?" spoke up Tom.
"We won't discuss that," said the
dragon. .
"You can't," I said flippantly, "for
certainly no man would kiss you."
There was nothing for me but
to go.'
V
A few weeks afterward I found
Tom was growing cold, and one day
one of the girls who had told me of
T the "grate in our parlor" walked out
with him to luncheon.
I had been ."cut out" not by an
other girl but by a parlor.

DROWNING
Do you know what to do in case
of a "drowning" at the beach?
The Schafer or one-man method
of restoring breath in those appar- s
ently drowned is one of the best of
emergency treatments.
Place the patient in the following
position: Face downward, head in
clined to one side, so that the nostrils
and the mouth are exposed, allowing
the tongue to fall forward toward the
front teeth, so as not to obstruct the
air passage.
Then kneel astride the patient and
piace the palms of the hands on the
victim's lower ribs, with, the thumbs
nearly touching in the center of the
back, the fingers well over the sides
of the ribs.
Then lean well over the patient,
throwing, your weight on the body
and pressing the abdomen to the .
ground, thus expelling the air from
out of the cliest
Next draw the body back sharply,
removing the pressure from the ribs,
but do not remove the hands. This
draws the air into the lungs.
Keep up these two movements al
ternately by a steady swaying of
your body. Time the act of your i
breathirig, which should be about 15
times to the minute.
Heat should be applied to the pa
tient's body as early as possible. Use
a hot water bottle wrapped in cloths
for this purpose.
Never enter the water to swim
when you feel ill.
