Excerpt from Good Sports

He wasn''t a ruthless despot. His daughters were glorious, beautifully kept girls - well de veloped, small-hipped creatures with fine, pink skin, powdered to a velvety texture; nails profes sionally manicured hair always perfectly coified and waved that is, all but Ada''s, and she, of course, was still a youngster. Marcus realized that it wasn''t their fault that they were girls, pos sessed of feminine tastes, and governed by femi nine instincts. As far as he was able, it was his intention that their perfectly natural desire for raiment and decoration should be gratified.

He was not an unafiectionate parent, either. He liked to find his daughters all gathered in the living-room, waiting for him when he blew in from his brisk walk from the elevated, after a busy day down-town; basking by the strong drop lights he provided for them; their noses buried in the pages of the several evening papers taken for their benefit; sleek and smooth as a batch of freshly combed Pomeranians.
