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.
A fair-haired woman came to me and
wept about her husband's nlleged un
faithfulness. When the case was well
under way and falling to pieces be

about it. merits, around turns the
husband and brings a counter charge,
and proves it.
"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 fnct that when she "vvns married
a few months before she had earned
$20 a week made no difference. And
she had been notoriously unfaithful
to her vows.

"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

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. H
More deep-seated suspicion of hu- H
mnnity has been voiced by blondes in H
this office than by brunettes. H
"The most legitimate reason for a H
mnn's preference for the blonde Is H
that he thinks she is more cheerful. H

of the University of Vienna,
has made some Interesting
experiments on the common flro
lizard or salamander of Europe,
whloh havo a most important bear
ing on eugenics and tho Improve
ment of the humau race.
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

ished and dovoloped his descendants
will inherit his strength. This la in

theory that a child cannot inhorit

The Professor says that . If the
salamander be kept for yonrs upon

of the black ground color. If half

have thus become vory yellow bo

upon black soil havo a row of small
spots on the middle of the back. 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
