"What Are Little Girls Made Of?"

By Nell Brinkley
Just about now they're made of bathing togs. Caps for
one puzzling thing. Down in the far southwest where the
Pacific is as blue as the water your mother rinsed her
snowy clothes in, with a feel of warm velvet in it. that,
dreams through flesh, and blood, we've had. our bathing
cap question puzzled over and solved long ago.
I make my own bathing caps and so can any girl'
with her hands and head doing team-work.
Tere are some ideas. There's a scoop hat. A girl I -know
with hair like live copper weara one all in black.
There's the" Dutch-cap 'version with the wings of soma
bright color flaring away from the face and wired of
course. There's a plain strip of black satin gathered to
fit the face and bound and piped in a gay color, and lined
with the same, so that when it is gathered together at the
top and tied with a narrow ribbon it flares Into a pompon,
bright on its inner side. There's a stocking-cap of- heavy
satin with a tassel on the end and a band of something,
barbarlc-hued around the face. Tou might have a .broad
strip of elastic on the Inner edge to keep it tight or eveu
hook It at the nape of the neck as I did mine.
There's an "air-man's" cap and I like it close and
trim and sleek and shiny with a seam running from the
center of the brows to the nape of the neck and a row of
-round buttons knobbing along It, buttons to match any
color note you strike In your suit, blue grass, or green,
or amber, or white. It has a piece that runs down like
ear-muffs and ties under the chin with cords ended with a
There's a pirate cap tied on to show a strip of
another gay cap beneath. There's a cap like those of the
i white sort that the peasants of Normandy wear with a
broad band of varied material running all 'round and a
puffy crown rising out of it. There are no gathers the
crown Is shaped in the cutting of it.
There's oh, there is the butterfly cap! And It's only
to play on the beach In and look your darllngest up under
the wings. Really, truly butterflies can't ever fight the
strong old sea; they are so much gold-dust a tiny pinch of
beauty and dream and plff! They are gone. And so
would 'be my butterfly cap.
And then some day some mermaid will slip up out of
the green boiling suds, and show you the cap she wears of
hells and porpoise hide! NELL BRINKLEY.
Lesson loathe Xpung Mm in Love
By ADA PATTERSON.
A New York girl says she never knew
he was In love until the obpect of her
love tried to kill her in a fit of murder
ous race. Although the bullet sped by
hi Jealous frenzy
has disfigured her
probably for life, she
has pleaded with the
judge for hla release.
She said she was
willing- to marry her
. Her reason for this
curious stand Is in
teresting. "I never
thought any more of
Fred than any of,
my boy friends,
he said, "until he
did thU. I knew he
had been attentive,
but I thought, when
I thought about him
at all, that be was Just like the other
"I would soon have forgotten him. Be

thoughts and Interests. But when Fred
followed me trough', "the 'subway and
shot hie. 'and then shot himself,' I realised
that this was different. 'He must love
me a great deal to do this,' I thought
Just before I fainted."
I hope the story of this girl and her
stiange reason for loving will "not meet
the ey- of many . lovesick young men.
For the story established a dangerous
precedent. The young man. ' beset bjr
mlHglylngs.' may oheose to- follow 1t.;- He
may say; , "I've sent her flowers. .I've
mad, googoo eyes , at her, I've copied
verses -from books ' of ' poems and ' Sent
them to her as originals. I've bought
new suits and got fussy about, hats and
ties for her sake, .and I've talked a lot
of mush. She seems as fnaenelbte as an
oyster.' Suppose! shoot her"-
Better not try it young mem Your
tint may be better than that Of the lov
crazed New York youth. Instead of send
ing her flowers fram another ward In
the hospital, as he did, you - might be
planting them on her grave, or, what is
more probable, , sending orders for them
from a penitentiary, where you may be
awaiting the final penalty or serving a
life sentence. '
Look deeper Into the meaning of this
irl's words, deeper than she herself has
locked, and you will find truth it ncrt
well for you to know. Women love love.
In this there is a rather unusual mar
riage, a wedding we seldom see. Reason
mates with instinct: Instinctively a wo
man loves to be loved, and her reason
tells her that that Is a firm foundation
i.pon which to build her wedded life
This young man wit no handsomer,
no cleverer, no more magnet to, no better
after the deed than before. But his deed
con4aced the girl of What she had

thought that she cut a large figure In
Kvery woman who has Joved has at
seme moment had a aickenlng senie of
being a small item in a man's life. There
may be no genuine n-aiton for this idea
of .hers. He may have answered her
sharply because his bead ached. Ha may

Whatever It was she felt becauae of it a
rickenlng Mnxi of humiliation.
This Is the UanKi-r point of married

figure In her husband's life she will either
brood In misery about or will, if she have
not strong principles and a head se
curely set upon her shoulders, cast about
for someone to whom she will be "every
thing." , There's a. lesson for you, young man In
lova. In this act of the Harlem youth.
Not the lesson you facetiously discov
ered, "to make a girl lova you shoot
her," but convince her by lawful means
that she looms large in your life, that
she will be the largest figure in It so
long as you live.

past some rough place, or by some naive
question or other whlcty she would ask
from time to time.
He could not make ner out at all to his
satisfaction. At one moment she aeemed
perfectly sane, at the next completely
mad. The only things of which lie felt
certain were that she was beautiful and
good and that she was suffering from
some form of amnesia by which her
powers of memory had been undermined
"How long have you known that man?"
he asked, referring, of course, to Prof.
Htllllter. ' - , , .
'Net so long as I have known ; you,

As Tommy guided her through the
woods toward his camping ground of the
preceding night, he kept on saying to
himself: "But there's got to be a show
down soon. What am I to do about her? '

Before Tommy could prevent, Celestla
had stepped upon the surface, as It upon
a solid pavement, and gone down In above

"Why, It's It's," she cried.
"Yes," ssid Tommy, ."It's wet water.
You appeared to think It was a hoard

"Of course, but not black and still like

"I'm going to tell people te be better

I tell them." '
"That's a splendid Idea," said Tommy,

the trouble to bring an extra pair and
then leave them in the' tent?"

to shout for help.
It was Tommy who answered the ap

in a day or two and find them for you.
