The Tipping Evil.
Have you ever walked up the Hill
"with a young library under both your
arms, met a lady of your acquaintance,
and performed a dextrous feat In juggling in order to tip your hat to her?
Then this editorial is aimed at you!
Haven't we had enough of that sort of
thing? Why must the
male tip his hat to thirty or more
every time he ascends the hill?

being a prerogative
of the masculine sex is that feminine
hats won't tip. SOMETHING IS ROTTEN IN THE STATE OF SWEDEN!

sorority fly. He knows half the girls
