Title: Leap Year Recipes - Kiss Cake

Caption: Take one armful of pretty girl, 1 lovely face, 2 laughing brown or blue eyes, 2 rosy cheeks, and 2 lips like strawberries. Mix well and press to lips. The results will be astonishing.
For frosting, take one piece of dark piazza, and a little moonlight, and press into 1 large or small hand so as not to attract attention, two ounces of romance, and 1 or two whiskers. Dissolve one-half dozen glances into a quantity of hesitation and 2 ounces of yielding. Place kiss on blushing lips or cheeks. Flavor with a light scream and set outside to cool.

Caption: "It's Up to You!"
It's Leap Year, 1908
How True!
Since time immemorial
in matters matrimonial;
The "unwritten law" and task -Has been - that the man
The maid should "ASK."
But Now: "It's Leap Year," 1908
Oh Ladies! If for a man you yearn,
Do Not Hesitate!
It's your turn
We are ready drive up the gate,
And draw us to your bosom.
Remember: "It's Leap Year," 1908
Men may act coy, and let ladies choose 'em,
Clasp our waist and kiss us too -
Hasten and help to join us as "ONE"
Instead of remaining a cold and distant two.
