THE TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL, TUESDAY EVENING, JULY 26, 1904.
9 t FIRESIDE TALKS. Mr. Perkins Explains About the Win don Screens. Mr. urirl Mrs. Perkins were Bitting on the veranda the other evening in the gloaming when an overgrown mosquito that hadn t anytning 10 eat iw i days came along and inflicted a savage bite on Mrs. Perkins nec ana uumu let go till a slap of her hand tiao oro ken every bone in its body. The inci dent offered her opportunity to say: "Joeiah Perkins, do you know that we fcaven't a screen to a single wmao i.i this house, -and that from now on the flies and mosquitoes are going to take possession of every room.' 'My dear woman." he replied, as he ettled down in his chair and got reaay for a talk. "I have been waiting w ex plain to you." , . "But no explanation is needed, tier, are the windows, and here are the Hies and mosquitoes, and we have no mrrrens. It was the same way last year. We had flies by the thousands all day, and mosquitoes by the hundreds all night." Yet there is an explanation. Mrs. Perkins, and in justice to myself i must proceed to give it. Not only one explanation but a dozen of thm-Ti"; to preserve a calm demeanor while I am talking. The bite of a mosquito s only a trifling affair. It has been found by .dentists to be only three per cent ot ihe bite of a poodle dog. and that what Jule pain there is is only imaginary. I expected you'd urge a dozen ex cuses for your slackness." replied Mrs Terkins. as he struck at a flying but, with the book in her hand and knock ed the unprepared insect ten feet away. "To begin at the beginning, my dear. For two years this house has been un der mortgage. That the money obtain ed on the mortgage was invested in a flying machine and that the machine flew away with it makes no difference. If it had gone into a walking machine the results would have probably been the same. What I wish to make you understand is that it is poor business policy to make any improvements on a house under mortgage. It encourages the old Shylock holding the mortgage to believe that his interest will be paid on the day It s due." But must we suffer from flies ana mosquitoes because we are under mort gage? 1 didn't want to sign the mort cage. It was only after you had as- , cured me tnat you couiu of a mile a minute that I did sign, lou never flew a mile a year." Bitting On the Veranda in the Gloam ing. "Granted, my dear granted with the utmost cheerfulness, but that does not affect my position. In this matter of screens I am actuated by a business policy. Old Shylock must not become too hopeful. To screen our windows would cost, as I once figured, the sum of $16. It would give the house an opu lent look, and us the air of lazy luxur lousness." "Our cerditors would naturally take new heart, and I have no doubt that both our gas and water bills would in crease as well. Do we want the grocer and butcher and milkman calling here to disturb our meditations? Io we want my tailor and your dressmaker, who have been dormant for the last month, to suddenly get the idea that the flying machine has become a suc cess after all? Try and look at the matter from a business point of view." "It's these mosquitoes I've got to look at from a biting point of view," exclaimed Mrs. Perkins, as she num bered two more among the dead and gave a third one the narrowest escape of his life. "Whatever improvements are added to a house under mortgage go with the house in case the mortgage is fore closed, and to lay out $16 more would be poor policy. Next year, if my sub marine boat proves a success and is purchased by the German government, we will screen the doors, windows, ver anda, grape arbor and the chimneys. I am glad you brought up the subject this evening, as I don't want you to get the idea that I am constitutionally hostile to window screens. A door or window screen of vivid green color lends a charm of picturesqueness. Do you follow me, Mrs. Perkins?" "I know that we haven't got a single screen, and that I shan't sleep two min utes this night for these infernal in sects!" she wrathfully replied. "Now, let us pass to other reasons," continued Mr. Perkins, as he repressed a start over a bite and pretended to slap his leg in a careless way. "The bugs flying about in the evening are rot carnivogous. On the contrary, they are bugs of peace, and ask only to be let alone. If they come near you it is out of curiosity, and not because of a ferocious disposition. That disposes of the bugs. "As for mosquitoes, statistics prove that only one out of every 250 is after blood. The other 249 are out for the evening air. Is it asking too. much that we dodge four mosquitoes in a thou sand? Is it any gieat sacrifice to yield up four drops of blood during an ev ening, when our veins and arteries are stocked with gallons of it? "We have been out here an hour. During that time you have been bitten twice ,and lost two tiny drops of blood. As your weight is close to 200 pounds. It seems ridiculous and puerile for you to kick. Even the living skeleton in the dime museum " 'I told you that you would twist out of It in some way," interrupted Mrs. Perkins, as three bugs and four mos quitoes assailed her at once from dif ferent directions. "I am not twisting, my dear, but stat ing solid facts. Do you know what ozone is?" "Yes, and I know what sophistry is." "Ozone is the life of the air. It has lately been ascertained by a German savant that when the ozone comes in contact with a wire screen it is col lected and held there against the wires, while the lifeless air enters the room to be inhaled. If there were no other reasons for the absence of screens this would be sufficient. We must have ozone. There must be no lifeless air In our bedroom. Understand, Mrs. Per kins " "Oh, I understand. Tou do not mean to buy any screens." You axa a little too previous, myi deal. I was discussing the subject from m own standpoint, and from what thought was the best interests of the family. If you will now convince me that window and door screens are necessity they will be put in tomor row." rvin't everybody have them?" Granted, but don't thousands of people have consumption? You might ask me it every ooay uiuii i nave a anion shovel, and I should reply in tne at firmative, and yet we have not had one for five years. We have found that.the public will wade through snow wnen it is not cleaned off. My point does not weaken your case, however. You may for instance; object to a flying-bug striking your nose in the darkness? "I most decidedly do," she stiffly re Dlied. - "Then let me assure you that It Is nure accident on the bugs part, ana that there is nothing malicious about it. In the darkness he simply mistakes your face for a sunflower, and wishes to alight and rest for a wnue. iou mav also object to the singing of the mosquito more than his bite? If this is the case why not also object to Ger man bands and hand-organs and thus be consistent? Indeed, objections might be made to your own music on the piano. Repeated experiments in Ar- kansaw, where the mosquito is sup posed to be at its best, have demon strated that their singing is only one- tenth of one per cent as compared with the wailing of a cat or the howling of a dog, and yet you do not ask me to eradicate the cats and dogs from the land. In one way, my dear woman you have a case, but in thirty other ways you should sit here in the gloam ing and be glaa to De anve. 'Well, you ve wriggiea out or it, ana hope you reel better." "There has been no wriggling, Mrs. Perkins. On the contrary, I have made out a wonderful and succinct case, and have kept only one thing in the back ground. That is, if you should die for the want of ozone die because tne screens kept out an tne ute-giving properties of the night air I should naturally miss you ror a tew weens, and then begin to cast about for No. When she had been discovered when she had been courted for a rea sonable length of time when she had learned to love me for myself alone Mr. Perkins, said Mrs. Perkins, as she knocked another bug galley west and rose up to go into the house, "you are an idiot!" "That may be your off-hand opin ion, Mrs. Perkins." he replied, "but when we bring argument and sophis try to bear on the case when we con sider it from its various standpoints " But Mrs. Perkins had vanished, and he had times to attend to the mosquito that had settled on the back of his neck and was jabbing in its lance a la Cossack. (Copyright, 1904, by T. C. McClure.) THE COCRTIN' OF "GUTTERS." I christened her "Glitters" at first sight. She was bearing tremulous gold earrings fully two inches long, and they sparkled and glittered in the sunlight as she moved her dark, feather-crowned head. I suppose she wore a hat. but the effect was prin cipally feather: also she had some sort of a bead chain around her neck glass beads and they flashed and glittered, too. Her real name was Jane Em'ly, but I only discovered that later. For the rest she was a fine, splendidly formed young woman. She might have passed for a Greek goddess Juno, or her like had she not sold flowers at Charing Cross and worn a brown merino skirt and loose white blouse, for she had really good classical fea tures and a perfectly magnificent bust and throat. - - I used to buy flowers in those days, great bunches of sweet, strong smell ing stocks, more delicate and fra grant pink carnations, masses of pale pink and deep crimson roses, for Cynthia loved flowers and I loved Cynthia. My first acquaintance- with "Glit ters" had something sensational' about it. I was nearly the hero' of a street fight. A coster belaboring a small and excessively patient donkey had aroused my wrath, and the same stalwart gentleman was inviting me to take off my coat and have it out with him and I itched to do it, too, although I wore black cloth when "Glitters" intervened. She swept out from the crowd of onlookers, a perfect hurricane in pet ticoats, and with black flashing eyes, and rough edge of tongue, told the coster plainly what she thought of him. Before she had finished I felt sorry for the man absolutely sorry. Here was a splendid young woman telling him the most unpleasant facts about himself, and the crowd, being with "Glitters," applauded every point. With the appearance of a leisurely policeman her harangue ceased, and as the crowd melted and a dejected coster drove a small donkey on, "Glitters" turned to me, flushed with triumph. "That's all right, guv'nor; I kin do 'lm any di, that lot dirty beast. Will you 'ave a flower, sir?" With this professional cry, "Glit ters" rtumed to her normal occupa tion, and, as she skillfully wired a but tonhole of lilies of the valley for me, I endeavored to form some idea of her character. She evidently mis trusted rpe at first, for when I hinted out a wish for better acquaintance she flushed angrily, and judged me by my clerical garments as a netter of souls on the warpath. "I ain't a-goin' to none of your missions not me," she cried, with a fine burst of temper. "You parsons are all alike with your missions, tryin to make us be'ave like mealy mouthed humbugs, an' I don't want no truck with you or your likes.' It took a few seconds to convince "Glitters" of her mistake, and a hint about a young lady for whom I should need to buy flowers delighted her. Where's the woman who does not anticipate a love story? Before I had bought a bunch of delightful, fresh smelling daffodils, "Glitters" was smiling archly, and when I turned to go, carrying my spoils, she proffered me a bunch of violets as a free-will offering, saying simply, "For your young lidy, sir." The ro mance to her mind was concluded. I told Cynthia all about the little adventure as she arranged the daffo dils in a quaint, high, brown jar, and she smiled prettily and tucked "Glit ters' " violets into the bosom of her dress. She was wearing a pale mauve frock, I remember, and looking de lightfully pretty, as she always did. I contrasted her delicate pink and white loveliness with the flower girl's ruddy health and comely strength; both wo men made in the same mold, and yet the differencec of all the world be tween them. I wondered vaguely if Cynthia would ever repent her prom ise to marry a poor clergyman, and sigh for the luxury of this west end drawing room when queening it in my east end vicarage in the remote fu ture. "You do love me. Cynthia, dar ling?" I cried hungrily. She moved gently toward me, her silk skirts rustling, the faint odor of her favorite perfume pervading the air. When she reached my side Bhe kissed my forehead softly. "Foolish boy," she whispered, "don't I love you with all my heart?" I remember straining- her in my WANTS Aim Q PULL AN A. R. T.

My acquaintance with "Glitters" progressed. I learned that she was one of four sisters, all three married save herself. When I expressed surprise that she' belonged to the army of bachelor maids a toss of her head re warded me. . "Wish I may die furst." said "Glit ters." "W'hat's the blessed - good of getting married? A lot of kids and more kicks than ha' pence." Her. suramins up. if crude, was fairly true. The position of the east end: wife and mother has Its draw-v backs, and when she went on to tell me in strong and forcible lansruaere tnat one or her brothers-in-law was doing time for knocking his wife about and badly damaging her eye, and that anotner was rarely sober more than twice a week, I mentally agreed that celibacy had Its advantages. Yet there was such womanliness in the girl s smile, and such generous hint in the swelling bust, that one felt sorry for sweetness wasted. . Time passed, and with great diplo macy I managed to persuade "Glit ters" to come to a big parish tea that was to signal my arrival at my new rectory. It was a far cry from Drury Lane to Stepney, but "Glitters" came, and. strange to say, escorted by a red faced and hugely embarrassed young coster. She had previously asked me if she might bring a paT, but somehow or other I had expected to see another lady of plush and feathers. When I made my next floral pur chase, I laughingly rallied her on the subject. To my surprise, she flushed crimson. "Git out," was her first smartly de livered retort; "I'm no such bloomin' fool as to marry. If ever you ketch me messin' abaht wi 'that cove agin " Her silence was eloquent. "Have you refused the poor fellow? Oh, Glitters! Glitters! and after rais ing his hopes by letting him escort you! --A nice looking chap, too, broad and of good inches." "Yus, he do look nobby," agreed "Glitters," with a slight sigh; then her voice hardened. "P'raps I mayn't never see him no more an' I wish I could sling my 'ook I do but I won't never marry." Her full lips closed sullenly, and I remembered the tragedy of a drunken father and sadly abused mother that must have darkened the girl's youth. Speech on the subject was useless, so I forebore. It must have been some time in October when I ran across "Glitters' " coster again. Yes, I know it was October, because my own wedding was fixed for the middle of December, and Cvnthia had only just settled the date. Poor coster boy, he had been hardly treated, for since our last meeting Fate, in the guise of a runaway van, had dashed him to the ground, and crip pled him for life. He was hobbling along on crutches, and told me he had only been out of the nospitai a ween. I forbore to speak to him of "Glitters;!; that subject might be raw yet. When asked what he was going to do for a living, he spoke bravely on the subject of the sale of papers, looking curiously bright and contented. I marveled at his courage, and after asking him to come and look me up, turned on my heel, and left him, wondering at the patience or the poor and the strange, pathetic resignation to trouble. A fortnight later I was buying a great bunch of vivid autumn foliage one read the date of the year In "Glitters' " big basket when I suddenly became conscious of a change In the girl's face. It had grown far softer, all its frank boldness gone. Also there was some thing delightful In her smile, a depth, a warmth lacking before. Her very voice had changed; it was not half so self assertive, yet had more strength in it. I looked at "Glitters." Her eyes fell before mine and a great wave dyed her face, even to the white throat barely hid by her kerchief. Then she smiled, a slow, conscious smile, and laughed a little nervously. " 'Ave some vilets, sir; jlst a penny bunch for the lidy." "Glitters," I remarked sternly, "I am not to be put off in that crafty fashion. What have you been doing with VotTr self to look so happy?" "Lord love you, sir 'ow you do go on! Did you want the vilets?" Ah, the mystery was out, for. holding up a bunch of sweet purple violets.most among green leaves, "Glitters" betray ed her secret. "Why are you wearing a wedding ring, madam?" I asked, smiling. "D'yer think I was a-going to see 'lm down on his luck and not comfort 'im? Lay your life not. Why! I love 'im nil the time, but nfver so much as ncV.. Thank yer, sir," for I had grasped her hands, and stood holding them tightly; "thank yer kind." "And, Glitters, my dear, splendid girl, you are happy?" I cried; "really and truly happy?" " 'Appy?" her whole face lighted up. "S'elp me. Gawd, I'm 'appy there, now, you've got it straight." I took off my hat to this daughter of the people, as to a queen In her own right .and walked away, glad that I had seen how grand a woman can be. When I reached home I found a letter from Cynthia awaiting me. I knew the large handwriting, the blue crest, and the faint perfume that always clung to her notes, and I seized on it eagerly, for I had found her out when I called. A quite short letter, merely breaking off the engagement on the score of 'he worldly wisdom of "mamma," and Cyn thia's distaste for gray poverty and soup kitchens. I was stiinned for a sec ond, then I remembered how often I had met Lord Ancaster with Cynthia lately and I saw clearly at last I tore up the letter into tiny frag ments, and rather envied a certain crip pled coster.
