The Road Bonds
The people of Missouri through
heir ballots not only indicated
leir wish to have 150,000.000 in
bonds issued to build bard sur
faced roads throughout. I his
state, but by their votes ordered
,he bords issued and the roads
.milt;. To delay or stay the issue,
is defying the will of the people.
The $00,000,00,0 bond issue was
fairly presented to the people of
his state and no one dare say
he people are nut, callable of
eif-jroverninent. It seems now
t this late date a few persons
re bent on delaying he bond
ssne by referring the road
.gislation enacted bv the state
gislature, to a vote under the
feronduin act. In order to do
us petitions must be circulated
nd numerously signed and it is
looed that the voters of this
it ate who believe in lifting Mis
ouri out of the mud and who
eliovo in upholding the will of
ie great majority, will refuse
sign the road bond refeivn

DO WE BLUSH7
NV shock or emotion which makes
the heart pump an extra supply
of blood Into the arteries and
veins which supply the face will give
rise to the reaction which we call
"blushing." The emotion, of course,
must he one of the variety which
causes the heart to heat faster than
usual. Excitement, embarrassment
or anger will cause this, while fear,
which retards the action of Hit; heart,
will cause the opposite effect, pro
ducing a pale white look.
Because the shock or emotion must
he one to which we are not accus
tomed, some persons blush far more
readily than othcYs. A person, for
example, who Is not In the habit ol
listening to certain language, will
blush from embarrassment when he
hears It the llrst few times hut, if the
experience is continued, ho will be
come "hardened" and lose the ability
to blush which is the reason that
blushing ,1s considered to be oue of
the attributes of Innoc'euce.

"Co the fire fnlrles found the lost
prince, and he and the forgotten prln-u-ss
were married and lived happily
ever after. Now kiss tne, Betty Lou,
and let nurse put you to bed."
Hetty l.ou did so, reflecting that
Aunt Louise was u most unsatisfac
tory storyteller of Into. She would
pause mid stare into tltc lire as though
-he saw the lire fairies themselves,
Utile oblivious of her small niece.-During
the pi ogress of being undressed
and put to lied, Hetty Lou recalled the
loyoiis tlmvs she used to Imvo wtth
Aunt Louise special trips to the won
tlrrhfmt of dolls, Jars of barley candy
and the jollied automobile rides. Of
course, i hose were mostly in Mr. Har
rison's roadster, when tucked la be
tween him mid Aunt Louise, the car
tore over tulles of country road. And
once there had been n picnic 1 Hetty
Lou sighed rapturously over tlie mem-
I ory of It. and, slhlJig, fell asleep.
1 Meanwhile. Louise Kirch, the best
. 'leloved aunt, nt frowning at the blue
' and red tire fairies, dancing impudent-
ly over the crumbling ltfi.
I "And they lived happily ever after,"
1 she murmured. "Yes, I will write to
I Wallle and put It in the lire. At least
j It will he a safety valve for my feel

i write exactly as I feel! It is seven
1 weeks today that It happened. Surely
j he must have known then; was some
, reason why I didn't keep that engage
. laent only he's too stubborn to ask
I for an explanation!" She reached
1 back to the table for her writing case.
, I'll write a couple of letters llrst and
' i axe Wa I lie's till last."
! It was late when at last a letter,
. hiiasleally addit'ssed to Wallace In
, me of the lire fairies, lay sealed on
he Utile pile of letters, and Louise
ri'se to crush a piece of paper to
e,, liven ttie lire. It may have been
the e!iil-(h'iknes of tlie lire-lit room,
or the liliiuung tears In her brown
j eve-, or perhaps the fire fairies them
j e.elves that saved Wallace's letter from
I the (lames. At any rate, when she
i (ached down a fumbling hand and.
with a hitter little laugh, tossed a let-
'er on tlie leaping lire, the em elope
was addressed to Mrs. Lawrence Cur
:K and made no mention of fire fair
"Kind of a post-mortem for Will
lie," 'die managed between .sobs, and
without n glance at the other letters,
.she. went wearilv to bed, determined
to rout all thougVt of Wallace from
Mother forbade Hetty Lou to so
much as tip-too Into Aunt Louise's
room. The home of the fire fairies
of Aunt LotiNe's stories drew her over
to the fireplace. There st 1 the bli;
armchair where she and Aunt Louise
!im1 sat When the lutfer fold of the
ud, rem ure:; of the forgotten prln
esi nnd lving on the cushion was
a little pile of letters, all sealed and
idilressed, waiting for stamps.
"(iueoo Aunt Louise wauls these
mulled," remarked Hetty, lingering
ll.eni curiously. "She'd let mo slick
i ho stamps- on and put 'em In the
box if she was awake. l''haps
they're awful important. I'd better
"Now what do you think of that !"
she expostulated us she laboriously
deciphered "To Wallace, in care of the
I'lre Failles." "Aunt Louise does be
lieve In fairies'. I told Hilly so! Fire
fairies don't bother with mail. The
postman hrliiL's letters. she must
have forgotten Oh, goody, goody!
I'll write the address myself. I c:.n
print 'most as j;ood as Hilly 'n he's
nine." ' .
Without further ado, she plumped
down on I he linor, and with inau.v
wrinklings of her small forehead she
printed the well-;non address, tor
Wallace lived light next door, except
now. In the summer, when he was at

Hetty l.ou mentioned this at Ihe
table, and mother replied that she
must not mention Mr. Wallace while
Aunt Louise was theie.
Tlie next night there was no "good

Louise seemed to have forgotten all
about the tire fuliieo, although she

the Season's Greetings
HTke Ne Year
K'l ' 'i'l
(JW'IIK year that has just closed
means something different
to most everybody. To
some It has brought a great
joy; to others a great sorrow; to
ninny, both grief and gladness in
full measure. Many of us have
gone along the regular, yncvent
ful path, filled with the happiness
of love and work and the Joy of
everyday things, which, after all,
is -the best liapipness.
To youth tlie Now Year means
a long, pleasure-tilled evening and
tlie writing of a new date on their
letters. They look neither for
ward nor hack. They make reso
lutions because It seems the cor
rect thing to them to do. They
keep them sometimes and it helps
make them better men and women,
but It is not a serious mntter with
them Just as is natural for youth.
Older folk's Involuntarily lo6k
back a bit on the even of a new
year not systematically, but with
a general sweeping glnuce that
usually makes them n bit uncom
fortable at things left undone or
failures to make good as they
had Intended. Maybe there has
been just one thing accomplished
that gives them a little warm feel
ing round their hearts maybe not.
The great sorrow or great joy
stouds out with more meaning to
them than to youth. 'Tis another
Tlie New Year may not present
very bright prospects to some, but
these same older folks know that
there Is something better in store
than what the Immediate future
seems to offer know that unhappy
things can't last that they are
pretty sure to lead to something
greater and belter know that
even if they can't understand the
reason for sorrow and trouble that
there is a reason know it deep
down within themselves, though
outwardly they resent and rebel
against fate. It Is not blind faith
or optimism that teaches this, but
reason and knowledge of life.
Older folks know that tlie year
Is hound to bring happiness and re
lief to those who are now bearing
sorrow and trouble. Mrs. J. K.
Leslie, In the Detroit Ne,ws.
