Postville Herald (Newspaper) - July 5, 1918, Postville, Iowa The t tier Alp. Postville Iowa. Tom s sort girl by Jane Osborn copyright 1918. By the Mcclure now spa per Syndicate it in t so much the fact that she s a cabaret Singer or even that Tom was deceiving me but she simply would t be Tom s sort of girl. They d be sure to be this is what Tom Rawdon s substantial older sister said when she first suspected that while Tom had told her he was going to marry one kind of girl As a matter of fact he was going to marry Mother kind of girl. The sister s informer was Pete Brevier one of Tom s old pals from the town where he and the sister both made their Home. The Young Man had made a hurried trip to the big City and there had met Tom and his girl Aud suspecting nothing irregular had come Back blurting out to the sister that he had met Tom and that pretty Little cabaret Singer that Tom was going to in the meantime for some weeks Tom s letters to his sister had occasional references to the stenographer at his office miss Remson whom he hoped some Day to make his wife. I Hope you Aren t going to raise a rumpus because she in t a girl of Leisure Tom wrote Home knowing perfectly Well his older sister s ability to raise a rumpus when things did t go to suit her ideas. Miss Remson is As Fine a woman As i Ever met. She came to this office As a stenographer a week or so after i did and though she has t hid exactly the same bringing up that you have you Are sure to like Tom s sister had thoroughly approved in fact she was so sure before Tom wrote this that Tom would be inclined to choose what she chose to Call some scatter brained Little girl with her head in her heels that the news that he was to marry a girl who was serious enough to be a stenographer came As a Relief. Then came the confirmation of what she had always suspected. He had actually introduced a cabaret dancer As his Fiancee and of course a cabaret was a scatter brained Little girl with her head in her heels. How could she be anything else if she was a professional dancer the sister spared no time in packing the few duds she considered necessary for such a Mission making her husband assure her that he would be quite Happy during her absence and going off to the big City to raise a she did t even wire to her brother that she was coming but after she did now i know she said. Get in about five o clock one evening telephoned to h s office and announced in a voice so cordial that it gave no warning of her suspicion and intention that she was there. Meet you for dinner Why of course i will Tom Rawdon said to the sister Over the phone. I had asked Little miss Remson Madge Remson Ito have dinner with Jne. You won t mind having her will you miss Remson Madge Remson the sister s voice was growing less cordial. I Don t seem to remember miss i wrote you about it Tom laughed. She is working Here As a stenographer that s How i met her and of the stenographer purred the Ibister s voice. I should be delighted. Where shall i meet you Madge dines Early said Tom so we were figuring on six o clock. Til come right Over to you at your hotel and she can have time to run Home and doll up and then meet us at the hotel. We can Dine there As Well As anywhere and that will Bemore convenient for Madge left Early and that gave Tom s sister an Opportunity to make the first of the Little sisterly speeches that she Felt it her duty to deliver. She s a perfectly splendid girl Tom she began. To entirely Satis fled. She will be a credit to the family. I m a keen judge of women and i can guarantee that i had hoped Yon would like her faltered Tom who was always a Little hit in terror of his substantial sister i did t see How you could help liking her but i never dared Hope you would say As much As and of course it was not Tom s sister s Way to say such Nice things without n reason she is n Lovely girl Tom and not the kind of a girl to trifle she looked intently at him so As to strike contrition to his heart but apparently there was no such result. There were several other meetings Between the sister and the Fiancee and on each one the sister was More favourably impressed than on the last. Tom was working harder in his office than he had Ever worked before. He told his sister that was the result of being engaged to Madge. She was inspiration enough to make any Man do his Best and of tills the sister entirely approved. No silly Little girl whose head was in her heels could have this effect on a Man that was certain. The substantial sister remained in the City two weeks and no inkling did she get of the cabaret dancer Friend of her brother s whom he had once introduced As his Fiancee. Well perhaps he had thought better of his Folly. She would not Force a Confidence out of him but she would not go Back Home till she had cinched the matter with Madge Remson. With this end in View she urged Tom to make a formal announcement of the engagement we Hud hardly wanted to do that Tom protested. A few people know of it but because Madge is working she does t want to Wear an engagement ring or have it announced till just before we Are there is no reason Why you can t be married in a very Little while said the sister. In the meantime the very fact that she is working is reason enough Why she should have the engagement announced. It is something that is due to every girl who has Given her Promise to marry. Tom i really insist that it be announced. I won t go Home until you perhaps this last stipulation had something to do with it for the next Day Tom told his sister that Madge had consented to announce their engagement in fact they had gone so far As to Send Small notes to the various papers making the announcement and Madge had written to All her close friends telling them of it the sister was satisfied and had actually made reservations for her return trip when she chanced to buy one of the papers to which the announcement had been sent and there espied something that made her immediately countermand her order for the reservations and unpack her bags preparatory to a prolonged stay. She confronted her brother that evening with a substantial scowl upon her face and a manner of determination. Now i know she said. You have been trifling with that Lovely girl. The girl you Are really going to marry is that cabaret dancer that Pete Brevier told me about and that said the sister with a Fine Crescendo that is Why i came All the Way from Home to see about things. Tom you Are going to marry Madge Remson if i have to make what made you think that i want said Tom with a placidity that was irritating to the enraged sister. This she said grandly producing a newspaper folded carefully to show a Short engagement announcement Young lawyer to wed dancer she read. Thomas r. Rawdon one of the promising Young lawyers of the firm of Babcock & Parsons and the Clever Young dancer Marda Daw have announced their engagement. Marcla Daw is now engaged in classic dancing in the cabaret of the Terrace Garden of the Bancroft hotel and is regarded As one of the Cleverest Young dancers in the City. There cried his sister in t that enough won t you read All of the announcement asked the brother. I be read enough said the sister with finality. That is As far As i cared to read but As she spoke her eyes did run Down farther on the column. In private life were the words she read there Marcla Daw is miss Madge Remsen a daughter of the late Bradley Remsen of this the sister sat speechless. Why did t you Tell me were the words she finally uttered. Because i knew your probable prejudice against a girl that made her living dancing. I wanted you to make up your mind first that i should marry Madge the stenographer and you know you recently registered the determination that i should do that in rather Strong but Why did t t a Tell me she was a dancer when y. First wrote me because i did t know she was said Tom. She worked very quietly away at the office and it was not till i knew her Well that she told me. She is a girl of enormous strength and perseverance it is her example that has set to to working so hard. She plugs along at the office every Day from nine till five and then dances from nine till twelve and she s fresher every morning when she starts in at work than the other girls that have no other work to then you Are going to marry Madge insisted the sister who still wanted to feel that her trip to the City had been very necessary and that somehow she had had her Finger in the pie of Tom s happiness. It seems As if i d have to said Tom generously since you have set your heart on they 8leep. Assistant professor chlorine tells me he electrified the class with his last lecture.
