MELISSA PREFERS A SINOLECODE b
OF MANNERS. .s
Mrs. Merriwid's maternal maiden g
Aunt Jane's eyes glowed with admira- d
tion and a faint color appeared on her C
cheeks. "His manners are simply ex
quisite, Melissa," she exclaimed. "I c
don't think I ever saw such perfect c
politeness combined with such abso
lute ease. I do hope that he will come "
"It's the one best bet that be will, a
dearie," said Mrs. Merriwid. "You ft
may set your fond, Buttering heart at a
rest. He will come again and yet t
again, and then some more, but I have s
a premonition that he will ultimately;
discontinue his visita, and we will h
have to pick -up our handkerchiefs t
ourselves and open our own doors
with our own weak, incompetent femi- h
nine hands." h
"I must say that I like a man to be g
well mannered," remarked Aunt Jane, .
rubbing her nose resentfully. "I am p
aware that there is a modern ten- 5
dency to sneer at the good breeding it
that in my younger days was deemed tl
essential, and the manifestation of l1
which, in a refinement of behavior to h
the opposite sex, was considered the k
hall mark of a gentleman; but I am g
old-fashioned enough to appreciate v
"I'm strong for it too," agreed Mrs. h
Merriwid. "As Mr. Stoxan used to h
say, a gentlethan wants to cut out the o
rough stuff when he's around with the o
.kirts. At the same time, dearie, I k
am of the opinion that there is such a a
thing as running it into the ground. I

Merriwid treating me with politeness.
I never let him sit down to dinner In
his shirt-sleeves even in the privacy
of home life, and if he wanted to use
any language unfitted for my shell-ilke
ears he went down to the basement or
some place where I wouldn't get any
thing more than the low, distant rum
ble of it. If there was a suitcase to
be carried when we were traveling, he
was the porter, and I ,lways got the
easiest chair in the room and the
white meat when there was chicken
for dinner. Henry was no Chester
field, but I certainly had him well
grounded in;the first principles, which
is about as much as a woman has a
right to expect of a husband."
"I wasn't talking about husbands,"
said Aunt Jane.
"All men are to be considered in the
light of husbands, darling," declared
Mrs. Merriwid. "It's the only light
that shows their imperfections. You
don't get them in the mellow radiance
of the melting moonbeams, believe
me, nor yet in the electric splendor
of the brilliant ballroom where Mr.
Scrayper and I first met. You've got
to put the subject under the X-ray of
domesticity-the fierce white light
that beats about the being of men
when there isn't company around.
Then you get a line on him, pet-and
the next morning you go down town
and buy smoked glasses."
"You seem to be theorizing to a con
siderable extent," observed Aunt Jane.
"You might call it that, beloved one,
but Mr. Scrayper reminds me a good
deal of Mayme Satterlee's fiance,"
said Mrs. Merriwid. "Mayme was one
of the girls in our ofice, and she was
a real nice girl too, even if she did
spell it with a y and get careless with
her grammar. Well she had the
sweetest thing in the fiance line that
you ever saw. The rest of us were
just a sickly green, he was so perfect
ly lovely. He was a clerk in a com
mission house, but he looked like John
Drew in the bloom of youth and he
acted with a refinement of behavior to
the opposite sex that would simply
make your hair curl If you dropped
a handkerchief, he'd go for it like Ty
Cobb making a slide for third, and he
would stand bare headed in the mid
dile of the street with a blizzard
blowing if you felt like stopping to
talk to him. You couldn't put on your
own wrap with Percival around, if he
saw you first. No, ma'am! Mayme
said that once when she met him. he
threw away a temment cigar that he
hadn't taken more than two or three
pies of-end did it a If It hada't
been anything more than a cigarette
stub. Just like that. He never made
one apology at a time. He let them
go in thousand lots. 'A thousand pah
dons, my dear madam!' You know.
Oh, he was too darling for any use!"
"I suppose you are trying to be ear
castic, but I really can't see any oo
casi'on for it," said Aunt Jsme.
"Not at all." said Mrs. Merriwid.
"That was the conclusion Mayme ar
rived at. You see she squeezed into
a crowded street car one evening sad
found Percival there. He had a seat
and he had a newspaper that was in
teresting him so much that he couldnt
see an uninteresting old lady who
was hanging on to a strap ip front of
him, and just for a little thing like
that. Mayme shook him.
"'He's all right,' Mayme told me. I
haven't any holler on the way he tips
his lid, and he's got a perfectly ele
gant bow, but when I saw him taking
solid comfort there, with grandma
pulling her poor old arms out of their
sockets every time the car lht a curve,
it gave me a chilly sensation about
the tootsies. I may wrong him crool
ly, but I got the strongest kind of a
hunch that if we ever went to house
keeping in a flat that lidn't have a
gas range, it would be up to little
Mayme to start the fire in the morn
ing while dear Percival was getting
his beauty sleep. Of coutse he may
have been suffering from weak back
or nervous prostration or eye strain
or sumpen,' said Mayme, 'but them
kind of invalids always did make me
"Then a man who is polite to a lady
before marriage will be rude to her
and inconsiderate of her comfort aft
erwards?" said Aunt Jane. "Is that
what I am to infer, Melissa?"
"I wouldn't exactly say that, honey,"
replied Mrs. Merriwid, "but I will say
that if a man isn't too excruciatingly
polite before marriage, his wife will
be considrably less likely to feel the

ADVICE FOR THE CORPULENT
German Physlcian Says to Cut Out
One Solid Meal From the Menu
for the Day.
One Doctor Galisch, a German phy
sician of Rothentelde, has devised a
simple drugless method of removing
fat, which, if the doctor's claims for it
are justified, deserves the attention
of the laity. He declares that he can
shave down the obese man at the rate
of two pounds per week, without in
any way straining his nervous sys
tem or heart There is, it appears, a
theory that fat is accumulated princi
pally during sleep, and Dr. GalOsch,
pondering this, in connection with an
observation of his own that corpu
lent folks usually eat a very hearty
meal, came to the conclusion that an
elimination of that meal would de.
prive the fat man of his raw material
during sleep, and thus reduce him to
A very little experimenting justified
this conclusion, he says, and now the
Galisch method has been added to
banting and the other anti-fat modes
of life. Dr. Galisch suggests the fol
lowing dietetic itinerary for daily use:
First breakfast, bread, butter and tea;
second breakfast (10 a. m.), egg and
a small tart, dinner (1 p. m.), meat,
vegetables, salad, preserves; after
noon tea (4 p. m.), coffee, crackers or
bread and butter, supper (no time
set), one small tart. There appear
to be no quantitive limit for the mid
day meal, so the system really
amounts to the elimination of all but
one "solid meal a day."
