MELISSA COUID PRtWT A BAD
ACTOR.
Mrs. Merriwid had been out on the
front porch so long that her maternal
maiden Aunt Jane grew anxious and,
throwing a light wrap over her head,
went out to remonstrate. Her niece
was sitting on the swing lounge, bend
ing forward, with her upturned face
resting on the palms of her hands.
Her expression was pensive-abstract
Sd, mournful
"Excuse- " Aunt Jane began, and
then, seeing that Mrs. Merriwid was
slmne, "Oh, he's gone, has he?"
Mrs. Merriwid started violently and
pressed her hand to her heaving
bosom.
"Who speaks?" she cried, in a
tragic voice. "Could it have been-?
Ah! No, no! Oh, it's you, is it, aunt
mrns? Yes, he is gone-gone forever.
Alas! that I should say so. He has
left his Melissa to tears and solitude.
Now what avails the splendor of the
moon, and what the glory of the star
lit skies!"
"Are you crazy?" ejaculated Aunt
Jane.
"I suppose some people might think
I was," replied her niece, in her ordi
nary matter-of-fact tones. "I've just
missed a chance to get my picture in
the papers and be described as a fas
cinating and wealthy widow.' Mr.
Buskins, at the same time, escaped
being forced into the fierce, white
light that beats about the shrinking
Thespian. rye saved him from that
at least."
"You mean that he proposed and
you refused him?" asked Aunt Jane.
"I mean that he laid his loyal heart
at my lily feet and that I coldlyspurn
ed his proffered love," corrected Mrs.
Merriwid. "In other words, I laughed
him to scorn and said him nay, cruel
that I was! Hist! are we alone? All
right, then, honeysuckle. Bring a pil
low over, here and sit down and Ill tell
you all about it"
"Well," said Aunt Jane, as she com
plied with the request, "I'm glad you
didn't accept him. I may beold-fash
loned, but I must say that from all I
hear about actors and actresses, it
would have been a very infortunate
thing, to say the least"
"You interest me strangely," de
clared Mrs. Merriwid. "What have
you heard? Never mind, though, dear
*¾*
"Io Wold A Y t M
Xr- ~ I, -
LHoW Would You Like to Many M.?
Is. Perhaps it will be better to say
nothing that would bring the blush of
shame to my innocent cheek. But
auntie, if you'd only seen the moon
light falling in a mellow flood upon his
pleading face! If you could have
heard the rich, musical tones of his
exquisitely modulated voice as be
plighted his vows!"
"Stuff and nonsense!" exclaimed
Aunt Jane. "It's the man's business,
that sort of thing."
"True," Mrs. Merrlwid murmured.
"I've seen him making love to women
that I know he detested-kissing their
fngertips with that splendidly chival
rio air and sinking gracefully on one
knee before them; also clasping them
in a passionate embrace. Perhaps if
he had clasped- But no matter. And
you needn't look so shocked, because
he didn't. Yes, he certainly knows
how to do it He has had lots of prac
tice."
"Of course he has," said Aunt Jane.
"How any woman can bring herself to
marry one of the creatures is beyond
me."
"But they do," observed Mrs. Merri
wid. "Sometimes they marry several,
sad sometimes several marry the
same creature, not all at the same
time, of course."
"Are you going to tell me what he
sild" inquired Aunt Jane, somewhat
Impatiently.
"Uvery word, deare," replied Mrs.
Merriwid. "You must give me time.
I know you haven't any sympathy for
him, though, and that makes it a IIt
tie hard. If you could have seen the
spasm of oaguish that passed over his
paflid haee when he -sw that his fond
hope was dashed-how sternly be r
-m And the emotion that shook his
manly form and bowed to the ftevtb
able! You know there is something-
well, it's better not to dwell upon it.
As you say, these actors know just
exactly how to produce their effects,
and then, they tell me that they are
terribly dissipated."
"Of course they are," said Aunt
Jane. "Well, what--"
"It's remarkable, though, how they
manage to find time to dissipate,"
mused Mrs. Merriwid. "What with
studying their parts and rehearsing
and pasting their press notices in
their scrap-books and performing and
traveling around and eating and sleep
ing, you would think they had about
enough to occupy them seriously,
wouldn't you?"
"Are you going to tell me what he
said, or are you not"' Aunt Jane re
peated the question quite irritably.
"Oh, yes," said Mrs. Merriwid. "I
was forgetting. Well, dearie, we were
talking about hay fever, and he broke
off suddenly and looked at his watch.
'It's about time I was hitting the
feathers,' he observed. 'By the way,
Melissa-'
"'Sir!' says L
"'How would you like to marry
me?' says he.
"'Not at all,' says I.
"'Then there's no use of me sticking
around,' says he.
"'Not a bit,' says L
"'Ya-ha-aww!' says he. 'Gee! But
I'm sleepy. Well, good night. Be
good.' And he departed."
Aunt Jane rose abruptly and flouao
ed into the house.
"You're not half as mad as I was,
dearie," Mrs. Merriwid called after
her.

VIOLIN NEEDS SPECIAL CARE
Peculiarly Sueceptible to Atmospherlo
and Other Conditions, as Most
Owners Are Aware.
The violin and violoncello are most
sensitive to atmospheric conditions
and suffer from atmospheric variations
quite as much as the tender vocal
cords of the singer. Those who have
attempted to make the violin an orna
ment by hanging it upon the wall have
had reason to repent taking such a
liberty. The violin loses its varnish
and gradually its pitch and timbre.
The artificial heat of rooms in winter
makes its tone raucous when it does
not obliterate it entirely. Metal cases,
moroccocovered, are equally unfit for
it. A strong, well-varnished wooden
case, even though it be not especially
attractive to the eye, suits the sus
ceptibilities of the violin much better.
Certain qualities, sometimes uasus
pected, in the wood play an important
part in the falsification of notes, cans
ing progressive deterioration. There
was a time when manufacturers ap
plied to their product several costs
of "paint"-L e., a concentrated solu
tion of bichromate of sodium potash
in boiling water. The wood soon
acquired a yellow tone, and, under the
action of light after drying, the color
darkened and took on the aspect et
very old pantL Fbr commerclal pr
poses this was all very well, but what
happened to the purchaser was that
as soon as he began to use his in
strument exposed to the light the hb
chromate worked on the gelatine
whloh the manufacturers employed to
color the wood and prevent the peas
trating of the varnish while some elo
ment in the bichromate of soda was
converted into stone. The violin suf
fered petrification which impeded its
tone and rendered it usedess.-Hai
per's Weekly.
Very Enjoyable.
"I met Billy Bumstead yesterday.
and he told me he had Just had a
very pleasant visit of a couple of
hours with yo"."
"Yes. He seemed to enjoy the visit
very much. He used the entire tme
telltng me about himseaL"
