The Woman Who Sees had Just
boucht n new veil and had hurried
into the dressing room of the shop to
adjust It, says the New York bun.
Crowds of women wero edging their
way to the mirrors to preen them
selves. Sho managed to squirm into a
space Just vucated by a gorgeous
creature In purple velvet. As she
glanced Into the mirror sue noticcu
two vonnirHters stimdlnc bcfUdc her.
They were both sweet-loolclng little
thing's. "Not a day over fourteen,"
sho murmured to herself, nnd tnen
stared with wonder. The elder of tho
two pulled out a tiny vanity case nnd
proceeded to powder the tip of her
pert little nose. She next arnfnged a
curl over her shoulder to its very best
ndvnntnge, while her companion stood
bnck admiringly. Then sho preened
her eyebrow with the tips of her
fingers nnd smiled complacently. Sho
was pretty and she knew It.
"Are you going to tho frat meeting
Monday evening, Dot?" queried her
companion. Dot rnised un eyebrow
and drawled nonchulnntly, "Perhaps,
denrie; it depends entirely on tho
mood I'm in." That was the straw
that broke the camel's back. The
woman gave a convulsive gusp and lit
erally bolted. Moods I Sho was
amused and yet It was pitiful. Sho
Is not nn advocate of corporal punish
ment, but sho would havo enjoyed
spanking those youngsters, What
kind of women will they make? Tho
woman is puzzled.
