MEl.sSA SCORel THE GREWll E '
Mrs. Merriwid boxed the luff Per
sian's ears until the pampered oriental i
yowldd and leaped from her lap to
the Boor, retreating under the davren
port to sulk. Her maternal Aunt Jane
protested against the severity eo the
slaps. The Persian was her partleu
"He's Just like the rest of his corn
oelted sex," said Mrs. Merrtwid. "It's I
the hardest thing in the world for him
to believe that there are times when
a woman doesn't want him around,
especially if he's had a little enooru 1
agement to begin with."
"I never noticed you encouraging
the poor animal," replied Aunt Jane.
"You'd have* noticed It if you had
seen me cuddling him when Mr. Green
Ish was here," said Mrs. Merrl
wid with a little giggle. "He hasn't
had such a loving since he was a kit
ten. I actually did violence to my
feelings so far as to kiss his nose
hassan's, you understand, not Mr.
Greenigh'i. I also talked baby talk
to him-Hassan, you know."
"I didn't suppose you kissed Mr.
Greenigh's nose," observed Aunt
"You're a dear, unsuspecting thing."
said Mrs. Merriwid, "but you can never
tell, auntle. Such has been did ere
now. Even bald heads have known the
soft osculatory pressure of a woman's
ruddy lips; but other lips, auntie, I asm
"What were you kissing my eat
for?" asked Aunt Jane.
"For the effect on Mr. Oreenllgh,
deane," replied her niece. "It was e1
feetive, all right If I were Hassan, I
wouldn't want the gentleman to feed
me liver. 'Some men there are cannot
abide a cat,' as Mr. Booth once re
marked at MeVicker's. Mr. Oreenish

bow anybody can tolerate them, much

"That's because he doesn't know
them," Aunt Jane declared.
"No, dearie, it's because I petted
one," said Mrs. Merriwid. "If I had
petted anybody else, he'd have felt
about the same. rm afraid, auntie,
that Mr. Greenigh is of a jealous dispo
sition, and that's a pity, because I
really think he's the easiest man to look
at that has been around here for many
moons, and my heart tells me that he
loves me truly. Not with the Berce
consuming passion of his love for Mr.
Greenigh, perhaps, but the daisy pet
als certainly all fall the one way."
"There can be no true love without
lealousy, so they say," remarked Aunt
"They say lots of things that aren't
s, when they've come to get on their
burnished plumage. I'm not intimat
tng that they're unmitigated, inten
ltonal and deliberate liars at that, and
5hr be it from me to counsel my sister
woman to let any obvious bt
ped think he's got a lead
pipe cinch on pre-eminence in
her affections. No. indeed, dearie.
At the same time, I'm not in favor of
high maximum percentage of the fires
of hell to the joys of paradise, as
dear Omar Khayam would say. There's
a happy medium between the ideas of
the sultan of Sale and those of Emma
Gold- on the proprieties to be ob
se rve atween the sexes, if anybody
should ask you. But most men are
naturally inclined to think that the
sultan has got a pretty level head on
him, after all, when you get right
down to brass tacks. They wouldn't
favor plurality. Certaliny not. Only
In exceptional cases and under eartain
circumstancee-end anyway, it's
against the law here. Personally, I
want to feel at liberty to say a klsd

or am I wrong?"
"I think, my dear, that the len aSI
on certain subjects, the better," -o

"Dear me! So I was," said Mrs
Merriwid. "Pardon the digrewsln.
Well, there's nothing doing, auntie
You see, he Isn't my only joy. All my
interests and aspirations and hopes
and yearnings are not bound up In
in him and I fear that I would be hurt
ing his feelings all the time by letting
him suspect it, were there a cloer
bond between us. Then he'd be mis
using his shavin materials, or some'
thing unpleasant like that.
"A man who merely gets jealous is
a highly inteesting., emietly eater
taing, and, by no means, disagree
able person," continued Mrs. Merriwid.
S"A jealous man is a detestable and
dangerous variety of hog. You can
take something or give somethtng for
an acute attack, but when the die
ease is chronic it is about an even
chance whether the patient lands In
the' Insane asylum or the morgue. The
man who gets jealous is entitled to a
woman's carefully concealed sympe
thy. The jealous man is a nuisanee.
and deserves what he generally tets.
r It didn't take the cat to satisfy me
i that Mr. Greenigh was no St company
i for a popular little lady like your
i niece, dearle."
"I mWpose you're the best judge, Me'
llsa," Aunt Jane allowed.
S"Thank you, darling," said Mrs. Mer
rlwid. "I know you don't think so, but
I appreciate it just as much. To the
best of my judgment, a man who gets
I blood in his eye and lecks of foam on
I his whiskers every time his wife
t shows symptoms of admiration for
anyone but him, is not the man to
a make a woman happy, however much
a she may love excitement. A man may
have a more than ordinary share of at
r tractive ualitiaes but he can't be a
Chesterfield, a Napoleon, a Dustin
Farnum, a Huxley and a Van bibber
rolled into one. He may think he
can, but his wife will have her opin
ion. I don't think Mr. Greenish
would ever let Mrs. Greenish be pious.
He'd take it as a personal relection
and possibly lay it to the curate. No,
a cat has too much independence of
spirit for him. What he wants is a
dog and doggish devotion, but it would
have to be a particular kind of a dog,
"How particular? asked Aunt Jane.
"One that wouldn't wag Its tall for
anybody but Mr. Grealgh," replied

Found: The Laziest Housekeepers.
Out on the east side there are two
sisters, both in the fat and forty class,
who live alone and do light housekeep
ing in the same rooms where they
carry on their dressmaking trade.
They are known for their lask of
speed and energy. One eveningta about
6 o'clock a customer was being fitted
when the older sister came into the
fitting room and drawled out, in a
weary voice: "Well, sister, it is about
time to get dinner ready, now. What
do you think you want for dinner"'
Sister thought lalorlously for a few
seconds and then made known her
- "I think I should like some canned
peas," she answered, smiling as If the
taste pleased her.
A look and tone of fatigue came
from the other.
"Canned peas!" she said, with an et
fort. "Oh, can't you think of some
thing else? Canned peas are so much
bother!"-Kansas City Star.
