PREFACE:

If you let your mind wander back through

History you will find that the only thing,

That has not changed since the world began

is - LOVE. Love is the unchanging axis

on which the World revolves.

There is no better way to prove this

than by comparing the love stories of three

widely separated periods of Time.

As appropriate examples we have selected the

Stone Age, the Roman Age, and the Modern Age.

The Stone Age.

Beauty is a part of Yesterday, Today,

and Forever.

(... Miss Margaret Leahy)

In every age Beauty is

sought by the Adventurer.

(... Mr. Wallace Beery)

Through every age there is the faithful

worshiper at Beauty's shrine.

(... Buster Keaton)

Youth is eternally protected by the

sheltering wing of devoted parents.

(... Miss Lillian Lawrence & Mr. Joseph Roberts)

From the beginning of time parents have found

different methods of choosing their daughter's mate.

A troubled heart ever yearns

to know the future.

"My card!"

"I want to ask the Wee-gee

if she loves only me."

ROME in all Her Glory.

No Parking.

"Thou rankest high

in the Roman army ..."

"... and thou art the rankest!."

"Wise Soothsayer... Canst thou tell me

if yon fair wench loveth me alone?"

THE PRESENT AGE:

Of Speed, Need, and Greed.

"I want you boys to know that I am master of my own home,

and the choice of my daughter's husband rests entirely with ..."

"... my wife!"

"Of course, you gentlemen understand

that my daughter's happiness hangs

in the balance."

FIRST NATIONAL BANK.

LAST NATIONAL BANK.

Again turning back to the

prehistoric days.

A man's attempt to arouse

jealousy is as old as time.

Get rid of that big fool and meet me

outside. I am sitting behind you

pretending to be asleep.

"We will fight this out at sunrise!"

"I think, I had better dictate

my will before sunrise."

Sunrise.

WEATHER FORECAS -------------------------

FAIR AND WARMER.

Snow.

"Thou art challenged to a chariot race in

yon arena at high noon tomorrow...

when I shall drag thy name down to disgrace!"

High Noon.

"He doesn't play --- he's just

the coach for the other team."

The Game.

BIG WEDDING TOMORROW

Mr. Wallace Beery of this city and Miss Margaret Leahy

will be married at Grace Church at 12 o'clock tomorrow.

The ceremony will take place at exactly high ...

In the Meantime, the prehistoric young man

returns to the city from a sightseeing tour.

"Take yon maid to my domicile."

Somehow he vaguely remembered that

somewhere ... sometime ... somebody made friends with

some lion by doing something to some of its paws.

After a delightful ride in

the patrol wagon ...

BIGAMIST FORGERY.

Let's go back to the church.

... and if anything more were needed to

show that love has not changed ......
