"1 wonder what lie said to me?” 1
mused after he had .a ne. "Was it the
price he was apiuking of or tlie time It
was to he finished ?''
I found out what lit* Ir.d said when
tin* wig came in. It was a Leanti.'ul
red. I ala: (ed him for having made t
wig of such a color, and he expo ;tu-
iated with the usual French shrug and
"Monsieur, 1 ask you if you have it
blond, black or red. You . y I make
him red."
Seeing that 1 lind mtlhorlzi d the col­

chestnut locks should ic.ippear.
It was about this time tlint I uveived
an anonym on- note written in a wo­
man's hand The wider said Mint she
had seen me on a sickbed in ihe Im ­
poni and had been impressed with n ..
appearnme. She plastered the com

However. since she gave ini* no i lew
to her ideniii.i, . paid no attention to
her letter, tossine it into the 111 »* and
thinking no moie ala»: t It.
When 1 had lor. »tleii it a married

"O f collise, ilow (»add she admire

"O b' Her ad tifati« n doubtless only

Nevertheless l was fluttered. This

to feel «pitie Adoni - ime. it -.coined to

" > hat did she lia v<* to say about
I don’t think 'hat the flattering
things said of persons should be re­
floated to them any more than the dis­
agreeable Miingg. ’
That is all I could get out of tier.
By this time I felt sine there was
something about my appearance that
; attracted tin* fair sex. 1 stood before a
mirror ti ring to discover wliat it was.
It setnned to me that if my own black
looks decorated my head I would be
j passably good looking, but my sorrel
i ton. I considered, spoiled tlie whole.
I ” 'l«*n it occurred to me that these
j "mashes" h nl been made since I had
' donned It, and it struck me that this
i must lx* t ie secret of my success.
One evening at a dinner the hostess
i (iimo to me end .-aid she would intro-
1 (luce me to the lady who was to be my
companion at table. Site took me to
one who the moment sin* saw me
started and shrank away from me. 1
noticed that her eyes wore fixed on my
wig. The hostess p> iked at her in ns-
i tonishment, but the other, recovering
1 herself, took my arm. and we marched
1 toa.iicj- to the dining room. Passing
a min r I saw I ■ it my face and my
wig were both vert red.
My dinner companion, when seated,
turned from me for an animated con-
! versation with a man sitting on the
' other sMe « f ln*r. Sin* scarcely spoke a
word to tro during the dinner.
This treatment brought me to my
senses, and I resolved to make an In­
vestigation. Before 1 got through I
knew more than I wished to know.
All these women who admired rue
were one—my demure companion. She
had seen me in tin* hospital and. being
ul . ressive instead o f retiring,
written me the anonymous letter. She
had seen me with Mack hair falling
over white temples. Meeting me at the
dinner parly, she saw my sorrel wig.
Tlie cfleet was not only disenchanting,
hut irritating.
Months later I appeared before her
in ray own natural hair. She had by
tills time recovered from tin* shock oc-
e a-b nol by tile wig. and I had little
‘M s idly in completing mv compiest.

T seems ns though most men had just been waiting
and waiting for \V-B G U T Chew ing. Naturally it
should be that way. Tobacco satisfaction and not a big
chew is what tobacco lovers want. You couldn’ t get it the old way —
c! tap tobacco and txceji ¡verteiung. But rich tobacco, shredded, lightly
is wincing all this popularity.
