Trieatriclil maniigers, who are rather learned In wonieu, have, discovered this and are engaging blondes to play the cruel adventuresses and brunettes to play the unhappy victims of their heartlessness. Dorothy Dorr, who plays the wickedest type of womau in "The Lure," Is a blonde. Mary Na.s'h, her almost victim, Is a bru nette. So in "The Fight." The good young heroine, Margaret "Wycherly, is a brunette. Cora Adams, the embodi ment: of all that a woman shouldn't be. Is a blonde. But hear Mr. Roth: "Ninety-one of of the women who've caused the trou ble in tho cases I havo tiled are blondes. Once I had a sad surprise.

"Jn another case a millionaire's son had ranrrled a chorus girl. They struck bad sailing almost at once. She demanded $250 a week alimony.

"The glitter of golden hair gets In to a man's eyes, his brain becomes dnzzled by it, nud when he awakes from his fool's dream it Is to face the derision of the world. "Men have a wrong conception of the blonde. The world has been fooled by blondes for a long time. The painters have been a great deal to blame. They have painted the saints and nngels with golden hair, and, somehow, people have looked and be lieved that all fnir-halred women were In character like these pictures. I asked an artist about this once and he answered ane with a laugh: 'We paint blondes only because light hair mnkes pretty pictures.' "A blonde attracts Instant nttentlon because she bears the trade-mark of the flirt. Her golden hair Is a chal lenge. It talres the place of the 'Come hither' look In some eyes. The average man doesn't know a .rear blonde from a phoney one. He has no idea of the transforming powers of a bottle of peroxide of hydrogen. It Is mightier than bad whiskey applied to a man's stomach. It is curious that while some men think a phoney blonde Is real most of them think the nature made one is self-made. They drop their pdwer of discrimination in a well of folly when a blonde is con cerned. But one fact they do grasp, that the woman who 1s deliberately blonde, who made herself so, lias done this to attract a man. Ills be havior is in line with that, belief. "In this the solf-niade blonde mere ly follows the lead of the natural one, for all blondes are vnln. I can locall no exceptions. They must have ad miration and it must be the admira tion of men. Blondeneps is In this sense an invitation. Blondeness is the trade-mark of the flirt I trav elled recently on a train between Chi cago and New York. On the car were six women, two blondes and four brown-haired women, all equally handsome. In an hour each blonde had attracted a man to her side one a passenger, the other the brnkeman. The brown-haired women sat alone throughout the trip. That Illustrates the attitude of the blonde. It Is a law of mental science that v,'e go nnd get what wo want. Blondes want ad miration and they get it? "Another renson why a blonde is tho best bait In fishing for husbands for It is n well-known fnct that most unmarried women arc brunettes is that men think they are easily won. A man must put up a fight to win n brunette, for she has a mind nnd will of her own. Next he Ib afraid to speak to her without an introduction. The blonde Is weak-willed, and scien tists claim that the blonde woman has a brain Inferior to the brunette's. "Men see the signs of a weak will In a blonde's pretty, baby face, and call it amiability. The truth is it is noth ing of the sort The record of broken crockery and smashed furniture that has gotten into many divorce cases Is generally made by blondes. I can think of no brunette with whom my cases have dealt thnt was a china or furniture smasheiv They respect prop erty as they respect homes. Men think blondes are sweet tempered nnd brunettes bitter tempered. Again they nre mistaken. "Another fancied trait that draws men to blondes is that they usually I Ex-Crown Princess Louise of Saxony IH Whose Career Furnishes a Strik- H ing Example of the FairHaired H Woman's Capacity for Causing H Unhappiness. have a sweetly confiding expression. 1 The male likes to be trusted whether he deserves it or not But the IM blonde's trustfulness goes no further IM than the expression, which Is gener- ally assumed because it goes well H with golden hair and a blue sash.

He finds that the salamander if kept on yollow soil tends to become yellow, and that its descendants in herit this characteristic. If the sala mander be kept on black soil then ho becomes largely blaok and hl3 descendants Inherit that color. The Professor thinks that this proves in a general way that ac quired characteristics are transmit ted, and that if a man be well nour ished and dovoloped his descendants will inherit his strength. This la in opposition to the long asserted theory that a child cannot inhorit the qualities Its parontB aoqulrod after their birth and whloh were not In the paronts when born. The Professor says that . If the salamander be kept for yonrs upon yollow clay, then hln yollow mark ings beoome enriched at tho expense of the black ground color. If half of the offspring of individuals which have thus become vory yellow bo raised on yellow soil, tho amount of yellow Increases and appears In broad regularly distributed longi tudinal bands. The other half ot the offspring If grown on dark soil becomes less yellow, always, how ever, In olose relation with tho op posing influence of the color of the surroundings, and likewise In n regu lar ordor In this inatnnce as rows of spots along the sides of the body.

On the other hand, in young which in contrnst with their paronts have been raised on yellow soil, rnese spots fuse into a band. When the Professor used yollow pa per instead of yellow soil and began to experiment, as ho did before, with scantily spotted individuals, then he obtained enlargement, but no In crease in the number of the spots. When he took black paper, then he obtained a reduction in the size of the spots -without reduction in Intensity of coloration. The young bore the few spots In the middle, while the normal young from the control brood in mixed surroundings at once pro duced an irregular pnttern of mark ings. "These wonderful now results," says tho Professor, "open an entire new path for the improvement of our race, the purifying and strengthening of all humanity a more beautiful and worthy method than that advanced by fanatic race enthusiasts, which is based upon tho relentless struggle for existence, I : jjlj l I Successive Changes in Color of a Black Salamander Kopt for Two Years on Yellow Ground.

Mr. Johnson em nhaszes the fact thnt when a brunette Is a co-respondent, she always wins her husband. "In the final analysis of a man's emotions, even though the man be a fool, he wants a woman who Is true, and the brunette Is nothing if not faithful, said Mr. Robinson. Divorce records reveal Margaret Moreland. a blonde, as the defendant in the divorce suit Edna Goodrich brought against Nat Goodwin, and which she won. Miss Bessie McCoy, the blonde danoer, was the succes sor of Mrs. Richard Harding Davis after her divorce from the author. Lulu Glaser was sued for alienation of her leading man, Tom Rich ards's affections by his wife. Miss Virginia Marshall, also a blonde, was attacked in the lobby of ' a theatre by an angry wife. Mrs. Albert Weber, formerly Margaret Dalrymple. soon found marriage a galling bond. Mrs. Louis Homin- IH way's married life was brief and spectacular. The roll of blonde trou ble-makors is long and illuminating. "Lady Betty" Chapman, n beautl ful blonde, caused tribulation in the family of Henry Clay Pierce, the millionaire partner of tho Waters 'Pierce Oil Company. Mr. Pierce's romantic young son, Roy E. Pierce, jH wedded her after n spectacular courtship in Paris when the fond jl youth believing he was "cutting out" Baron de Rothschild. Mr. Pierce angrily demanded that the marriage be annulled, claiming that the blonde loveliness of his unwelcome daughter-in-law had gone to his son's head. In other words, that Lady Betty's light hair had made Roy Pierce light-headed. Lady Betty vowed she would never H9 give up her young husbaud. but she Bfl did, for a consideration. It was said the consideration was a third of the ' Pierce millions, made in oil. Her first marriage, with T.

She has since married Frank Clarence Hen derson, a millionaire bachelor, who before the ceremony made a will be- IH queuthing to his bride his entire for- IH tune, all of which proves that Mrs. Chapman Pierce-Henderson Is of hJgto blond power.
