NOW FAIR WOMAN'S
WHATEVER else a woman may
be reticent about— when it has
to do with tho ways and
means of living up to the fashionable
type— she takes no pains to conceal the
fact that she wears false hair.
False hr'.r Is the correct thing foi
the moment, and, of course, everybody
is using it. That is, every woman who
wants her head to have the samo mod
ish general outline every other wo
man's head has.
Puffs and curia nnd plaits, bought in
the shop reudy to attach, have always
been one of the pet foibles of woman
kind. But the greatest secrecy used to
be maintained In the purchasing and
the wearing of these false pieces. Not
even one's most Intimate woman friend
was allowed to sec all the artificiality
of one's coiffure, and if any of the
sterner sex got an inkling that all was
not as nature had Intended the chances
were thut (he devotee of false tresses
came, near expiring of mortification.
That was how women felt about it
In the olden days. Hut times have
changed, and so have women in a goon
many ways, and there is no better
example of their independence and be
lief in the modern maxim that all is
fair in the light for beauty than in
the way they take to false hair.
After air what is the use of mak
ing a fuss over the little external de
ficiencies of nature? To the Intelligent
■woman these slight oversights are of
small consequence, for the reason that
they can be so readily supplied by art
and science, and to be perfectly frank
and open about them gives her v
Btrong advantage in other directions.
Let a woman acknowledge, or at least
not attempt to conceal, her most ap
parent physical imperfections and Rhe
gains your confidence. Then she has
more time and energy to devote to the
more important deceptions as to her
mental attainments If It is necessary to
pose, and this is where a little clever
ness goes a long way.
Reasons for False Hair
There are two important reasons for
the revival of false hair coiffures. One
is that during the last two or three
years, since "Marcelling' 1 has been in
vogue, the heads of fashionable women
have suffered irreparable damage.
Sometimes this has been due to an in
efficient coiffeur, who has burnt and
singed the hair past restoration, and
ngaln the opinion has been advanced
by experts that constant curling owlth
irons and the "roughing" process — run
ning the comb in the wrong way to mat
the hair on the under side and give a
foundation for the coiffure— have com
bined not only to ruin a good head of
hair, but to cut off any chances for
future crowning glories. Whether these
statements are true or not the fact re
mains that only about one out of every
twenty fashionable women possesses
enough hair of her own to make any
sort of a showing at all. The other
reason for the false hair rago is the
style of coiffure offered by Parisian
authorities ns the latest and most ap
.proved model. When an expert hair
dresser tells the one woman out of
twenty that even her luxuriant tresses
cannot poslbly be built up into a smart
effect without the aid of a false braid,
some Idea of the utter hopelessness of
the nineteen others may, be gained. It
takes false hair to bo fashionable, and
It takes plenty of it.
There la this difference between the
new deception and the old: Whereas
before the natural hair whs used as a
Bhleld to hide false pieces, now the
order Is reversed and one's own tress?a
are arranged in such a way that they
form the coiffure foundation, upon
which additional pieces are pinned.
There Is an Immense advantage in thiH
disposition of the false hair, especially
when it Is necessary to give a husty
tidying to the coiffure, say when one la
•shopping or traveling, it is so easy to
remove the external layer of false hair,
Hinooth It out and readjust It. An odd
nnd Interesting feature of the fashion
is the utter indifference some women
nhow as to the effect their actions pro
duce on others. In street cars they
have been seen to detach a little cluster
of ciirlß, twist each spiral and then put
them back in place without the quiver
of an eyelash or a sign of embarrass*
nient. They have even removed whole
liiimh und then pinned them on before
v waiting room full of men uud women.
ItNilds huve been lifted off entire uud

do this freshening of their toilettes In I
public do not belong to the nicest and
most reserved circles of society. No ,
well bred woman arranges her coiffure I
under the eyes of the multitude, but tho '

She Doesn't Like It
To the smart woman this ostenta
tious proof of her addiction to arti
ficiality is most distasteful. She fol
lows different tactics. Without flaunt
ing her false pieces before the world,
she makes no effort to conceal their
existence, other than trlmness and
neatness of coiffure demand. While
she refuses to be teased about her
false braids and curls, she will admit,
oven to her masculine admirers, that
she wears them. Where Is the harm?
Hasn't her honesty given the mascu
line eye a different point of view re- i
garding false hair upon which it once I
looked with horror?

on the street, then . she keeps it for '
her house toilettes. When completed
the coiffure looks the essence of sim
plicity. It Is nothing more than the ,
drawing of the hair to the nape of the '
neck very loosely and the twisting of
a braid all around the head. That's
what It looks like, but when you come :

dressing. When the curling is finished
the hair Is divided Into halves from
the forehead to the nape of the neck
and both sections are rolled over loosely
from tho sides to the crown of the head.
Herein lies a little trick which many
women would find of advantage If they
learned It. After the hair is separated
Into two sections and the outside has
been brushed smooth over tho
"roughed" inner part the indispensable
side combs are brought into service.
The hair is gathered up and held out
from the head and the combs arc stuck
through teeth outward, about four or
five Inches from the head. Then the
combs are twisted under to make the
hair form a puff, after which they are
fastened down so that, while quite firm,
not even the rlin of the comb shows.
The rolling is done toward the center
of the head and the four inches of hair
are taken up In the process..
On some heads the distance has to
be Increased and on others diminished,
but this is learned only by experience.
Having the sides and front arranged,
the next stop Is to dlsposo of the long,
loose ends. These are braided and

secure the right effect, then the figure
eight may be applied. Almost any wo
man has enough of her own tresses to
form the paved foundation. j
The braid that encircles the head like
a laurel wreath or crown is made to
flt the wearer. Its size depends on the
head size, and it Is a loose, fat braid of
gloßsy hair, exactly matching the nat
ural tint, laid around the head, with the
ends concealed under the loops of the
figure eight In the neck. To some wo
men the braid Is more becoming when
low nnd rather thin, while others find
broad, high ones more to their liking.
A few even go in for two circles of
rather thin braids, pushed down low
on the forehead and brought close to
the ears, while the'- opposite type iind
it more becoming to wear a diadem
of smaller circumference raised higher
on the head' These points of differ
ence have to be determined by the in
dividual, but the braid must be false
in any case. An expert hairdresser
explains the necessity for this by say
ing that a proper start cannot be made
with the natural hair. When It is all
brought low in the neck, preparatory
to putting on the braided circlet, the
surplus hair even though it make a
fine showing, does not form the right
shaped braid. As the average head of
hair when braided thins toward the
end, such a braid would be small over
the forehead, just where it should be

Danton and the Clock
The clock In the anteroom of the
ministry of Justice having stopped, a
watchmaker took it to pieces, and was
surprised to find engraved on one of
the wheels this inscription: "I, Jean
Blanchet, this 22d Aug. 1792, saw the
Sleui Danton profane the emblem of
divine kingship by breaking a fleur de
lys, which so rightly adorned the hand
of this clock." The Inscription had
been hitherto undiscovered. Danton at
the time mentioned was minister of
justice, and It is known that the clock
stood for more than a century In the
minister's private room. Presumably
he was Irritated by watching the fleur
de lys, which finished off the minute
hand as In many clocks of the eigh
teenth century, slowly mark fleeting
time as he sat at his desk, and on the
day In question suddenly started up in
a temper und broke the emblem off.
The hand still shows a mark where it
was mended and the fleur de lyg read*
