Here is a practical "kid's " essay on "the good girl" :—" Once upon a time there was a very good little girl and everybody loved her. She had lovely blue eyes and long light curls. She lived with a lame aunt. She was goody good, and was too cute for nothiDg. If she got hurt she smiled. She never told a lio, not even a fib. Her name was Elsie, and she liked castor oil and cried for bitter medicine. Elsie picked posies and —died." A good deal of billing and cooing is beiDg done at the Bummer resorts just rum. Lovers do the cooing and hotel proprietors do the billing.
