Love making in 1873 was never

woo. The heriones in Godey's
Ladies Book kissed the hero only
after a sparkling solitaire rested
on her lily white hand, and then
thaperones flittered in the back

with results. Here is a quote of
one fellow's thoughts in a story
titled "Bessie's Wooing." "I will

If the modern girl is -called a
"gold-digger," she can place the

.yellowed magazine said, "Ob--serve
our modern girlhood . . .

at least no expression of love. If
she marries, it must be under
no such foolish i("ea. Magnificent
