For the silk stockings en the worklnr

for the yarning for esse and
luxury and adornmsnt the foolish finery
for whlr-h so msny poor girls tell their

of character, ' Indeed, .If you did not

perilously near the prlmros path.

that rich women have. Tbey tell of the
sybaritic Impulses that "lie must strifle

They tell of foolish extravagance, of
silly pining for the Indulgences of the
wealthy, of weak lelding to temptation.
of a frivolous nature that never stops
to count the cost of gratifying an Im
