A dachshund waist or the waist of a spider, a strait-jacket, a flower garden in bloom set on straw, a dash of darkness, vermillion blood and some enamel from a charnel-house, thread spun by worms, some silver and gold, the skin of dead animals, a double portion of unique attractions, and of the lust of possession and display; take these, mix well together, and lo, a woman as a milliner and fashion and vanity have made her!
Look on this picture and on that. Young women that are deceived
by the gaudy dash of the milliner and man-made women are mislead indeed.
For what the true man wants to-day is a woman as God has made her, with
the light and purity of divide beauty on her bow and all graciousness distilling
from her lips.
