* ~ SUIIORS OF
MELISSA WOULD NOT MARRY A
"He's a perfect gentleman, I think,"
declared Mrs. Merriwid's maternal
maiden Aunt Jane.
Her niece, proceeding with her soft
Improvisation on the piano, expressed
her entire concurrence in that opin
"And he's very sweet tempered,"
Aunt Jane continued.
"Surest thing you know," murmured I
Mrs. Merriwid, still playing. "Some
saccharine, he is."
"And eau can't say he isn't good
"I could, but I won't, dearie," said
Mrs. Merriwid, executing an arpeggio
with nimble fingers. "To save time
I'll admit that he's intelligent, a good
citizen, a consistent Christian, a nifty
dresser, and a patient piecemeal pic
ture puzzler. He departed this house
on the ninth day of November, 1912,
"He'll never come back, he'll Lever
No, he'll never come back any more."
Mrs. Merriwid sang this with
"I'd like to know why," said Aunt
Mrs. Merriwid's rich contralto was
again raised in song
"I don't think his Uncle John
Ever had a collar on."
"I wonder if you'll ever learn to be
sensible," sighed Aunt Jane.
Mrs. Merriwid whirled around on
the piano stool and faced her relative.
"Darlingest aunt," she said, "I am not
the frivolous, unthinking creature you
deem me. Beneath this apparent kid
ding there lies a deep and serious ap
preciation of Mr. Bludthink's merit
but I am also wise to Uncle John. Un
cle's deficiency in the matter of linen
gives me what is commonly known as
"Don't say that you never beard
that Mr. Bludthick had an Uncle John,
dearie," interrupted Mrs. Merriwid.

dearie." interrupted Mrs. Merriwcl. than any otner ractor. t ney ousfl wu
Mrs. Menilwid's Rich Contralto Was Again Raised In Song.
"I haven't either, but I do know that e
he has a mother and two sisters and I
several cousins because I have met
mother and a sample sister and a
cousin. Mr. Bludthick isn't to blame
for having them, of course, and the
fact that he is proud of them does
credit to his heart, even if it argues a
certain osseous solidity of the
oranium, is Dr. Illasy would put it. In
other words, I might love him madly
enough to forgive the circumstances,
but not its open avowal. Do you get
me, sweet aunt?"
"You wouldn't be marrying the fam
ily," said Aunt Jane.
"I would not," Mrs. Merriwid as- 1
serted with emphasis. "Not while 4
reason holds its sway and the tariff a
question remains unsolved, dearie. I
Not in a million years. But if I mar- 1
ried Mr. Bludthick, I would; that's 1
something that can't very well be side
stepped. I have heard sanguine young
brides-to-be say they weren't marry
ing their husband's families ere this,
and I have seen the pearly Pozzoni
coursing down their cheeks as they
realized too late their fatal error.
Take it from me that you might as
well try to ignore an ulcerated tooth
as a husband's family. There is real
ly no such thing As..severing rela
tions; they decline to be severed and
they won't be pleasant."
"Mrs. Bludthick seemed to be quite
pleasant," observed Aunt Jane.
"She gave me the gloomy eye never
theless, and I could detect the out
lines of a hammer in her skirt
pocket," said Mrs. Merrtwid. "I un
derstand from her devoted son that
she's a Colonial Dame. If she isn't a
colonial knocker, I'm no judge of an
tiques. Her nose is the feature I ob
ject to particularly though. I could
see little rsgments of other people's
business sttcking to it quite plsinly
where she had Forgotten to wipe it
off. If I ever expected another visit,
rd put my private stars tn a bottle
A of strong spirits of ammonia and t
leave it where it was handy for her to
"Don't you like his sister?" inquired,
al Aunt Jane.
"I might learn to like her, but I r
ft wouldn't want to take up the study
id until I had made myself a mistress of
n- German and the higher mathematics,"
replied Mrs. Merriwid. "She would
say, 'Do not you like?' by the way,
aunty, dear. That little habit she
ad has of raising her eyebrows and ooo0
le ing, 'Yes-s-u?' fills me with emotions
too profound for words. I: S-s are
)d the only things that would . at all
adequate. No, sister didn't make a
id hit with me. The sample cousin

)d "Of course it wasn't exactly the hat
ty I should choose," ~unt Jane con
se "Very well, then," said Mrs. Merri
.2, wid. "What boots it to bandy words,
as Mr. Ruskin remarks? There are
er the ginkesses who would consider
themselves privileged to greet me
t." with a clammy kin and give me ad
th vice and criticize my gowns and ask
me what I pay my dressmaker and
nt follow me into the kitchen and borrow
my trunks for a month's vacation and
as tell me what my husband likes and
dislikes and direct my attention to my
increasing stoutness and call me Me
lissa." Mrs. Merriwid got all this off
be in one breath. "Married to them!" she
exclaimed. "Of course I would be,
on and worse. Nay, dear, a man may
re. speak with the tongue of an angel and
got make love like John Drew in his palm
on test days; he may be liberal, consid
Id- erate and unselfish and thoroughly
L- domesticated, but it there is an Uncle
John with nothing between the neck
In- band of hin shirt and his whiskers
en who is to be considered on visiting
as terms and entitled to a seat in the
chimney corner wherb he can spit on
the hearth, I beg to be recused. Uncle
.rd John, figuratively speaking, has done
in, more for the leading industry of Reno
id. than any other factor. They ought to
erect a statue of him in the market A
place opposite the courthouse."
Mrs. Merrlwid turned to the piano Ji
again, and sang: 31

"It isn't an orphan asylum I'd send
you to, Melissa," remarked Mrs. Merrl

What Colors the Blood.
The color of blood is due chiefly to
iron in the little blood cells. When .
the iron is kept in these little blood
cells, which are living and traveling
around in the blood vessels, the color
is red. Hit the skin hard enough to
break some of the little blood vessels
beneath the surface and the little red
cells escape from the injured blood
vessels, wander about for awhile in
the tissues and die. When they die
the iron that made them red before
then changes to black and blue color
ing. After awhile this iron is taken
up by the glaqds called the lympha
tics, and made over again into nice
red cells. The iron is taken up much
more quickly by the lymphatics if the
black and blue spot is rubbed and
Miss Ines Milholland, the beautiful
and aristocratic suffragette, detests
the male flirt.
At a luncheon in Newport a male
flirt sneered at woman suffrage.
"Woman doesn't want a vote-dhe
wants a husband," he said.
"Nonsense!" said Miss Milholland.
"It's a fact," the firt continued.
"The way the averge woman wos
