THERE'S A DIFFERENCE
Women have considerable moral
sense when they don't love a man.
Mighty little when they do. With
a' man; it's the opposite. ' If he
doesn't care for a girl, he's with-
out scruples. -If he does care, he '
is likely to develop a moral code :
only , the. angels can live up to.
' A woman worries about the fa-'
ture until she gets a husband while
a man never worries about the
futuss until he gets a wife.
