think of the girls of Chicago? . Be
tween the girls of today and the girls
of 20 years ago lies a gulf as wide as
the Atlantic ocean. They have

matter how you get it. That's the
principle today, and my own life of

Do you take your company to your
mother's parlor? No, you meet him

thought of home and mother ancfthe

his manhood and his life, calling you
by the sacred name of wife. In the
language of Kipling, "the Colonel's
Lady and Judy O'Grady are sisters'
under the skin." Jack Mirn.
