Did you ever notice how really beautiful gum chewing makes a girl appear? Take her defacto, and gazing steadily, one cannot find a more ideal picture. With a sharp click, click, her teeth so white and pearly, are clashing to gether as, with cowish glee, she masticates her cud. Then, too, one can note her health tinted, Well rounded cheeks as they grow a little more rotund* through the ! material assistance of a big “hunk” of gum. And leally, who can imagine a fairer spectacle than that of her dainty upturned nose, as it gently rises and falls in wave like undulations over the absymal depths revealed at each pressure against the mass ? Oh, how deliciously tempting that rosebud mouth is as the maiden fills it with, soft, pliable chunck, and champing like a festive goat re/elling in the luxuries of the succulent tomato can, she greets yjiin tones husky with gum.— Cjntributed.
