THE WOMAN WHO FELL BETWEEN TWO FIGURES

 

 

THE WOMAN WHO FELL BETWEEN TWO FIGURES

THERE was once a Woman who Wished to Make an Impression upon a Friend of her Brother. She had Observed that this Friend was Much Interested in a very Athletic Girl who Played Tennis extremely Well. And yet He seemed pleased Also with a Society Girl who did Nothing well But Dress Herself.

"I will Combine Both these Methods," thought the Woman, "and Win Out in a Short Time."

After a While her Brother, who was Observing her Tactics, called her to One Side and Addressed her thus:

"Allow me to Inform You," said he, "that you are Making a Great Mistake. If you wish to Make a Success in the Tennis Line you will have to Dress more Loosely and be Willing to look a Little Redder in the Face, because Otherwise you Cannot Play well. If, on the Other Hand, it is your Object to Look Stunning, you must Wear a Tighter and a Longer Skirt and Not Dash about so, which Spoils your Complexion. As it is, you are Thrown Out of Both Classes."


This teaches us that you Cannot Blouse your Waist and Have it Too.
