The Poor Little Rich Girl

1
In the Home of Everything
- except the Love
she longed for, dwelt
Gwendolyn, the Poor 
Little Rich Girl.

        GWEN

The Poor Little Rich Girl

3
The poor little rich
girl's father, whose
money making schemes
left little time for
tenderness.

4
The Tyrants of Modern
Civilization, Servants
--- By Position
Masters by Disposition.

5
The poor little rich girl's 
mother, whose social
duties seem of more
importance than the hap-
piness of her child.

6
"Mother promised
to see me just one
little minute, to-day."

7
"Mother is very busy
to-day, dear. We'll
try to have a little
chat, to-morrow."

8
"Why do my
to-morrows
never come?"

9
And every morning,
at the stroke of Ten,
Grim Wisdom's teachers
frowned on little Gwen.

10
"A school-room of my
own is too big and lone-
some. When my birth-
day comes, I can ask for
what I like and it's going
to be the Public School."

11
"Everything her heart
could wish and she
isn't even grateful."

12
   The dreaded
four o'clock drive.

13
"I don't want to be shut
up, in that old car!
I hate riding! I hate
the chauffeur! I want
to walk on my feet."

14
"Very well! Walk
then, but don't blame
Jane if the kidnap-
pers get you."

15
"You must ride, because
bad little rich girls
who walk will be
bitten by big dogs."

16
Empty hearts.
Empty lives.
Empty homes.
Poor little rich
girl.

17
"The unwelcome but
necessary plumber."

18
"Ah! Go and grind de
organ fer her. She's
a good little feller,
even if she is rich."

19
"Mr. Organ Grinder,
I'd like a dollar's 
worth of music."

20
"Oh! You are the 
gentleman who
fixes the pipes."

21
"Mr. Organ Grinder,
permit me to intro-
duce Mr. Piper."

22
"It was my fault, mother
dear. I was so lonely,
I asked them in."

23
"My daughter, Susie May
will be a charming
companion for Gwen-
dolyn. I shall bring
her to-morrow."

24
 The anticipated 
to-morrow with the 
longed for playmate.

25
"My house is much
nicer than your house."

26
"My father is
  much richer
than your father."

27
"My mother says
your mother has 
a social bee in 
  her bonnet."

28
"She has not.
It's a bird."

29
"Woof!"

30
 "Say! Are you 
scared o' bears?"

31
"Well, I'm a bear!
Woof! Woof! Woof!"

32
"Gwendolyn bit 
me, on purpose."

33
"TATTLE-TALE!"

34
"Give Susie May
Gwendolyn's best 
lace dress."

35
"She shan't. I won't
 have my best lace
dress on a Tattle-tale"

36
So they punished the 
poor little rich girl,
for wanting to be a 
free little poor girl.

37
"When I was a boy, I
was made to wear my
sister's clothes, as a
punishment. We will
try it on Gwendolyn."

38
"It's the poor little 
rich girl's house.
We'll take a chance."

39
"My name is 
Gwendolyn and
----I'm a boy."

40
"I'm Mickey Doolan,
de leader of de
Salmon Alley gang
and you're a Sissy."

41
  "Now you've 
spoiled the best 
fight I ever had."

42
Gwen's father, whose
wealth is more apparent
than real, is caught in
the collapse of the
market and faces his
life's crisis.

43
"Jane, will you take 
me, to-morrow, to
my father's office?"

44
"I wouldn't go there,
if I were you. It's
full of bears."

45
"'Wuxtra'! 'Wuxtra'!
Panic in Wall street.
'Wuxtra'!"

46
"Please talk
to me, Daddy."

47
"Daddy, dear.
Did the bears
frighten you?"

48
"No. They tried 
to, but I'm still 
fighting them."

49
"Daddy! Haven't 
you time to love 
me a little?"

50
"I had lots and lots to
tell you, Daddy, dear,
I'm so lonely, I----"

51
The Eleventh mile-
stone, on Gwen's 
lonely path.

52
"It's my eleventh
birthday. Be nice
to me Jane. I'm
grown up. Wont
you kiss me?"

53
"Jane, you're dis-
missed. I'll take
my bath alone."

54
Gwen's father, in his
financial dilemma, is
tempted to sell
the old homestead.

55
"The happiest years of
our lives were spent 
there. It seems like 
sacrilege to dispose
of it."

56
"They forget I'm 
grown up. Baby's toys!
Take them away."

57
"If you get off
to-day, I'll go 
out to-night."

58
"She's an old
Snake-in-the-
   grass."

59
Society celebrates
Gwen's birthday
 without Gwen.

60
"Jane, you will 
mind Miss Gwen.
The governess is
going out to night."

61
  "I bet he spoils
our 'theayter' party."

62
"Don't you remember 
me? I am the doctor 
who showed the stork
where to bring you."

63
"Oh! Certainly. I
remember you, now."

64
"Get some more of 
that sleeping medi-
cine and she'll be no
bother 'til morning."

65
"I don't like doctors.
They give little girls
horrid medicine then
cut out their appendix
and charge their papas
a thousand dollars."

66
"They are burning the 
candle at both ends--
living much too fast."

67
"She has the Society
Bee, in her bonnet."

68
"You Silly Ass! You'd
spare the rod and
spoil the child."

69
"I may be a Silly Ass,
but I'm not a Two-faced
Thing, like you."

70
"Get her to bed. We'll
be late for the 'theayter.'
Bill and Nora are waiting.
Here's the dope."

71
"Guests or no
guests, I must
see him at once."

72
"If you don't want the bears 
to have it all their own 
way, you'll have to raise 
one hundred and seventy 
five thousand dollars 
 to-morrow morning."

73
"You didn't take it.
You bad girl! You
threw it in the cup."

74
"To the health of
your daughter, on
her birth-day."

75
The spell of the
  drowsy drug.

76
Repairing the last
traces of Gwen's 
bathroom escapade.

77
The Child's Mind Wanders
Real voices faintly come 
  and go whilst every
character in her actual life
is borne into her delirium.

78
"You are in the Garden
of Lonely Children, in
The Tell-tale Forest of
Dreams. Here things ap-
pear as they really are."

79
"Take you, for instance.
You think you have every-
thing. In fact, you have 
nothing at all."

80
"Oh! There's
Mr. Grinder!"

81
"I wish I could find
the Land of Happy
Children. Let us
go hunt for it."

82
"I'm your friend Potter.
The Silly Ass!"

83
"You! Big Ears!
And you! Two-faced
 Thing! What have
you given this child."

84
And then began 
the frenzied struggle
between the doctor
and the deadly poison.

85
"This is the magic crystal,
made of Mother's Tears,
through which the truth 
is found."

86
"I know I shall never 
find happiness, without 
my father and mother."

87
"I want my father."

88
"They say that you're 
   made of money."

89
"It is The Land Where
they Burn The Candles
at Both Ends. Perhaps
I can find my mother
there!"

90
"The Bee in your Bon-
net! Take her away!
The Bee - The Bee!"

91
"You'll never find Happiness,
until your mother forgets
the Society Bee and
your father ceases to
Grind out Money."

92
"It's getting dark!
  Oh! So dark!"

93
"I fear her
little journey
is almost done."

94
"My poor little girl!
My poor little girl!"

95
"Poor---Little---
-Rich---Girl."

96
"Here, in the forest,
      dark and deep,
I offer you,
      eternal sleep."

97
"I come to light
    your deep distress,
And show the Road,
    to Happiness."

98
The hopes of dream-
land lure the little 
soul from the Shadows
of Death to the
Joys of Life.

99
The old Home
of Light and
Life and Love.

100
"Happiness!
Happiness!
We have found 
it at last!"

101
   "Oh, Doctor!
You brought me back."

102
"I'm hungry."

103
Early morning brings 
the man of affairs, eager
for the Father to plunge
once more into Wall
Street's whirlpool.

104
"There is still time 
to raise the money."

105
"We have been fighting 
Death itself, and have 
learned what is truly
precious. There is
enough left for the life
we are going to lead."

106
"Oh! I love mud."

THE END
