Ladies Should Note
Of all hideous and barbarous monstrosities there is nothing worse than the whole bird’s skin one sees in ladies hats. Deformed, crippled, crumpled, broken, goggle-eyed, and dyed, they are a terrible and piteous caricature of the which has once been so replete with such exquisite beauty and delicacy of line, symmetry, and colour. If ladies only knew how it detracts from their otherwise good looks to have such miserable deformities on the top of their heads, the efforts of those who are trying to prevent the slaughter of birds for merely decorative purposes would be considerably assisted.
