Here she is, and three cheers for her —our pretty Union Park girl.
You see her bright face on the Union Park lines every morning. Her
laugh is silvery and her hopes art high, even if she is bound for
work. UnderQMth all her prettiness and gayety there is a strain of
klndneai and seriousness, for already she has taken up the responsi
bilities of life. They render her all the more winsome. They give
her just that little touch of self reliance that makes a fellow feel
sure he can bank on her, in one of life's pinches. How'd we come to
mention fellow in this connection? Why, do you suppose she hasn't
