MELISSA RECOGNIZES INSUPERA

Mrs. Merriwid opened her eyes wide
and became alarmingly rigid. "Here
-this-afternoon!" she exclaimed.
"Why, I told him distinctly that I was
going to the matinee. I told you that
I had reasons for staying at home,
dearie. Surely you remember. When
did he tell you he was coming?"

about it so I said you would be very

"I'm crazy about him," said Mrs.
Merriwid, dryly. "I think he's the
sweetest thing that ever brushed
three strands of hair across a bald
spot; still, I'm afraid he'll be disap
pointed if he expects to see me this
afternoon. Me for the impenetrable
recesses of the tangled woods. I'll
let you console him for my absence,
dearie, and you can blame yourself."
Aunt Jane's eyes lost their usually
mild expression and she jabbed her
needle into her work with some
viciousness. "Thank you, my dear,"
she said. "At the same time I don't
regard the society of a well-informed
and gentlemanly man as an infliction,
however you may feel about it, and I
may add, my love, that it seems to me
unladylike to make personal remarks.
Even if Mr. Chubb were bald-which
he is not-It would be no reflection
"I didn't say it was shiny enough to
reflect," said Mrs. Merriwid.
'And intellectual men nearly always
have a tendency to baldness," pursued
Aunt Jane. "There was Julius Caesar,
and-and Mr. Rockefeller."
"They're generally smooth people
on top." admitted Mrs. Merriwid.
"You talk nonsense," snapped Aunt
Jane. "If being bald is a crime it's
strange that they have to keep bar
bers in prisons to cut the convicts'
hair. You ought to get a Skye terrier
if you're so fond of things that look
like door-mats. I suppose that's what
you find so attractive in Mr. Victor."
"I wonder if that 1. it," said Mrs.
Merriwid, dreamily, "or whether it'.
because Mr. Victor hasn't dimpled
knees? Honest, Auntie, dear, don't
you think dimpled knees on a male~
person over seven have a tendency to
destroy the spirit of romance?"
"Melissa," said Aunt Jane with
spirit, "if you talk like that I shall
leave the room."
TMPlease excuse me, dearte," beged
Mrs Merrdwid. ¶ wonldn't say any'

that nobody loves a fat man."
