do not advocate It, ihelxig -organized

There are a great many of ua who

LONDON, July 4. When the edict
went forth that the Chinese were to
cut off their pigtails a slump in the
hair market was' predicted, but It 'has
not occurred. On the contrary, prices
have gone up. "
At the last French hair market, held
the other-day, blond hair was; especial
ly .dear and difficult to obtain. The
reason given is tbxt the blond French
peasant girl V nowadays too proud of
her appearance to tell her hair.
False hair, says r. West End coif
feur, is v much more in demand and
the supply is so much .-smaller that
pricea are. rising all the time, Most
of the blond hair sold now is bleach
ed from darker hair. In the las. two
years fa'se hair has doubled In prlc
The reason (or the increased de
mrnd, according to the tame authority
is that nearly every woman makes ad
ditions to her own tresses because it
is the fashion to do so, and the pres
ent styles of hair dressing are diffi
cult to carry "out without extra switch
es; and ,iuch arrangements.
Curls have gone out of fashion and
long switches and plaits rre required,
and these need more hair. Some of
these switches are between twenty
and thirty inches long and cost more
Women, said the coiffeur, are now
wearing chignons, transformations,
fringes, twitches and plaits. A plait
that cost $20 in 1910 is today worth
$40. So with the other articles the
prices have just doubled in two years.
White, wavy hair is so expensive
and rare that it costs almost half the
price of gold at wholesale. Gold costs
about $19 an ounle, and white hair
about $8.50. WThen made up Into
twitchv? or curls, white hair is often
sold for $25 an ounce.
Like other hair, white hair hts
doubled Its va'ue in two years. Wo
men with white hair will not sell It as
a rule, and most of the hairdressers'
stock comes from combings. White
transformations cr.it $125 each, but,
at in the case of jewels, there is no
fixed market value for white hair, of
which there are about a hundred dif
