should be nothing startling about a decent magazine for
women and the home. But this particular magazine is
unique among all .the socalled publications for women.
You might not like it a little bit, and then, again, it might
hit your fancy good and hard. ,
If you like, fiction good, wide-awake, snappy stories
both serials' and short stories you will like " Woman."
In fact, fiction is the big feature of the magazine.
All the other magazines for women are cast on the same
model a little bit of fiction, a fer articles, more or less
chit chat, some wise advice, a fashion department and a
smattering or renerd miscellany. "WOMAN " doesn't
look any more like this conventional model than a yellow
dog looks like a race horse. It is built on new lines for a
strictly woman's publication. To know what it is like you
will have to get a copy of it. It would cost too much to
tell yea all about it in this ddvertissment.
