The $00,000,00,0 bond issue was fairly presented to the people of his state and no one dare say he people are nut, callable of eif-jroverninent.

DO WE BLUSH7 A: NV shock or emotion which makes the heart pump an extra supply of blood Into the arteries and veins which supply the face will give rise to the reaction which we call "blushing." The emotion, of course, must he one of the variety which causes the heart to heat faster than usual. Excitement, embarrassment or anger will cause this, while fear, which retards the action of Hit; heart, will cause the opposite effect, pro ducing a pale white look. Because the shock or emotion must he one to which we are not accus tomed, some persons blush far more readily than othcYs. A person, for example, who Is not In the habit ol listening to certain language, will blush from embarrassment when he hears It the llrst few times hut, if the experience is continued, ho will be come "hardened" and lose the ability to blush which is the reason that blushing ,1s considered to be oue of the attributes of Innoc'euce.

It was late when at last a letter, . hiiasleally addit'ssed to Wallace In , me of the lire fairies, lay sealed on he Utile pile of letters, and Louise ri'se to crush a piece of paper to e,, liven ttie lire. It may have been the e!iil-(h'iknes of tlie lire-lit room, or the liliiuung tears In her brown j eve-, or perhaps the fire fairies them j e.elves that saved Wallace's letter from I the (lames. At any rate, when she i (ached down a fumbling hand and. with a hitter little laugh, tossed a let- 'er on tlie leaping lire, the em elope was addressed to Mrs. Lawrence Cur :K and made no mention of fire fair ies. "Kind of a post-mortem for Will lie," 'die managed between .sobs, and without n glance at the other letters, .she. went wearilv to bed, determined to rout all thougVt of Wallace from her mind. Mother forbade Hetty Lou to so much as tip-too Into Aunt Louise's room. The home of the fire fairies of Aunt LotiNe's stories drew her over to the fireplace. There st 1 the bli; armchair where she and Aunt Louise !im1 sat When the lutfer fold of the ud, rem ure:; of the forgotten prln esi nnd lving on the cushion was a little pile of letters, all sealed and idilressed, waiting for stamps.

I'd better mall 'em." "Now what do you think of that !" she expostulated us she laboriously deciphered "To Wallace, in care of the I'lre Failles." "Aunt Louise does be lieve In fairies'.

MEYER NOVELTY HTke Ne Year K'l ' 'i'l (JW'IIK year that has just closed means something different to most everybody. To some It has brought a great joy; to others a great sorrow; to ninny, both grief and gladness in full measure. Many of us have gone along the regular, yncvent ful path, filled with the happiness of love and work and the Joy of everyday things, which, after all, is -the best liapipness. To youth tlie Now Year means a long, pleasure-tilled evening and tlie writing of a new date on their letters. They look neither for ward nor hack. They make reso lutions because It seems the cor rect thing to them to do. They keep them sometimes and it helps make them better men and women, but It is not a serious mntter with them Just as is natural for youth. Older folk's Involuntarily lo6k back a bit on the even of a new year not systematically, but with a general sweeping glnuce that usually makes them n bit uncom fortable at things left undone or failures to make good as they had Intended. Maybe there has been just one thing accomplished that gives them a little warm feel ing round their hearts maybe not. The great sorrow or great joy stouds out with more meaning to them than to youth. 'Tis another milestone passed. Tlie New Year may not present very bright prospects to some, but these same older folks know that there Is something better in store than what the Immediate future seems to offer know that unhappy things can't last that they are pretty sure to lead to something greater and belter know that even if they can't understand the reason for sorrow and trouble that there is a reason know it deep down within themselves, though outwardly they resent and rebel against fate. It Is not blind faith or optimism that teaches this, but reason and knowledge of life. Older folks know that tlie year Is hound to bring happiness and re lief to those who are now bearing sorrow and trouble. Mrs. J. K. Leslie, In the Detroit Ne,ws.
