"I kno w it's tho goucral supposition and
the rock-bound belisl on the part of the
most womon that really bashful men don't
exist anywhere off the farm," said a South
tide man to a Chicago Herald reporter,
'hut I know one woman who is convinced
that bashf uIbcbs can flourish and become
confirmed rich there in tho city, with the
board of trade as a stamping ground.
. "The lady I speak of is a charming young
widow who live with her parents in an ele
gant residence away put south. ; The bash
ful gentleman has boeu acquainted with
this pretty little widow for a good while,
and a short tlmo ago asked her to go to the
theater. I don't know bow ho ever nerved
himself up enougu to make the request, but
he did, and the young woman's father, who
is quite friendly with the bashful man, sug
gested that they use the family carriage.
So he rode down to the mansion on the Illi
nois Central, and the elegant carriage ol
the widow' father rolled np to the front
door to take them to the play-bouse. The
widow was handed in and settled herself in
the back seat Then the bushful man, to
her surprise, took a seat directly opposite
her, and the carriage rolled out on the
boulevard and toward tho city.
"The pretty little widow exhausted all
the arts of which she was possessed and,
being a widow, you may believe they were
numerous to apprise the bashful man of
the fact that It woulu be proper for him to
take a seat by her side, but he was more
afraid of her than he ever was ot a panicky
wheat market The widow wanted to laugh,
and yet ahe folt silly, sitting over there
alone, with carriages passing, whose occu
pant could see her Isolation. All ber hints,
however, were ot no avail, and she finally
" 'Mr., If you are quite convinced that
I will not bite, please sit over here. It looks

Into his corner all the way to the theater, re

These, says the Philadelphia Record,
were the words of a big, freckle-faced, red
haired individual whose usually merry
countenance and abundant avoirdupois
made him the very picture of health.
"What in the worid should make you a
bad risk!" chorused the group of bystand
ers. The first speaker blushed till his cheeks

Is my bone. It Is quite bad enough to in
vite the sobriquets 'brlcktop,' plnky,snd
the like, but when the insurance companies '
take a hand in the persecution it is enough'
to make a strong man weep."
The aggrieved individual resembled a con
sumptive as little as possible, but his sup
positious tendency to pulmonary affections
was the only ground for the Insurance
men's boycott The medical examiner of a
leading life insurance company, who wss
questioned as to the alleged disparagement
of red heads, said it was largely imaginary
and exaggerated. "It la a fact, however,"
be continued, that red-headed persons
hsve generally very thin skins, and are as
a rule of a delicate constitution. A pale,
thin face aad a cowering, consumptive
form are often allied to a reddish complex
ion. Light balr, and especially red hair,
often seems to betoken scrofulous disor
ders, and its presence msyprcjudlce super
ficial examiners against the subject It is
a fact that red-headed persons who show
not the smallest trace of pulmonary trouble
wHll sometimes develop consumption In an
almost incredible time."
BLEACHING THE HAIR.
The TUe Compounds That Are Used la th
According to Medical Classics recent
analyse have shown that the preparations
for bleaching the hair "to the delicate
goklea shad so much admired by the court
circles of Europe and the best society of the
United States," to quote from a label on on
of the bottles, all depend upon the discolor
ing and corrosive influence of nascent oxy
gen or nascent chlorine. The basis used in
the various nostrums for this purpose are
peroxide ot hydrogen, aqua regis and
bronze r' acid. Peroxide of hydrogen I
the mildest and most innocuous of the trio
named. It is a colorless liquid which de
stroys the natural color of the hair, and
which, If used long enough, turns It an un
natural grayish white. It is rather expen
sive, and It Is therefor) nsed much less
than the two other adds. It produces sore
upon the scalp and give rise to skin com
plaints that resemble tetter, salt-rheum and
scald-head. The two sods are squally vile.
They attack and eat the hair and skin
alike. The former they partly bleach and
partly burn to a handsome gold color; the
latter they stain to about the same hue as
doss a light application ot Iodine. Besides
the dermatologlo troubles named, they
cause maladies hardly distinguishable from
eczema and erythema. One ourloua disease
that they eausa Is aa Inflammation of th
ceils of the hair follicles. The cellular walls
break down, and lymph, and often blood, la
extravasstoii in appreciable quantities. All
three bases produce falling ont ot tha hair
