A rather curious arrangement of the
hair came into vogue in 18110. The hair
wns parted iu the middle, two very short
locks being made to curve out on cither
aide the forehead, the two hind plaits
were then crossed and brought under the
cars up the sides of the face, being fas?
tened among the hair which hung loose
on the sides of the head. In 1840 the
two plaits were carried up the sides of
the face, having between them nnd the
checks a long piece of straight hair cut
squarely to the length of the plaits. In
the frescoes of the chapel of St. Stephens,
"Westminster, Queen Phillippa and her
three daughters are represented with
their hair thus arranged.
Washington Money Lenders.
When a government clerk gets deeply
"in a hole," or suffers the agonizing dis?
comfort of being on "his last legs," he
generally appeals for a lift to one who, in
"Washington parlance, is known ns a 10
pcrcentcr. This is a specimen of human?
ity that loans money for sums not ex?
ceeding half the borrower's salary, nt the
rate of 10 per cent, per mouth; that is, il
your salary is $100 n month, he will loan
you $-15 in cash and take your note foj
$!j0, payable in thirty days. These mon?
ey-lenders claim this exorbitant interest
on the ground that the nnsulHciont secu?
rity subjects them to frequent losses.
Hut I do not see how they can lose; n
clerk is completely in their power. They
never accept a note without the nnmc oi
n second clerk in gook standing as nn en?
dorser. If either clerk refuses to pay,
his position in the department can be
placed in jeopardy by the 10-pcrccntei
filing a report of disregard of obligation
against him. The lender's only dangci
of loss depends upon the rare contingency
of death, resignation, or discharge sever?

The photograph is now as nearly "in?

If anything is in motion, it has been per?
ceived in that fragment of a second as if
motionless. Men walking along the street
nre pictured with uplifted feet. A trot?

may be pictured in mid-air, precisely in
the position in which he up; ears at the

But this is not the most wonderful of its
powers. Far beyond the keenness of
human vision is its range of sight. If the
light is good, this sensitive plutc of glass
