DEMONSTRATIONS OF SCIENTIFIC
METHOD OF SAVING THE HAIR
AT THE MIGGE LABORATORIES
A comer of the Migge laboratories, showing Prof. Migge at work with his beloved microscope.
Distinguished Scientist, Whose Method of Preventing
Baldness by Removing the Bacteria Responsible,
Congratulated by Visitors
The public interest in the work of Professor Friedrich Migge,
from whose laboratories in The Call building the scientific world
was notified a short time ago of the discovery of a method of in
vigorating and restoring the hair by elimination q£ the bacteria
which, as the scientific world has known for more than a genera
tion, cause the falling of the hair and baldness, has become so
great, spreading as it has into almost every nation, that Professor
Migge has found it necessary to compile a book devoted to his re
searches, the scientific principle of the treatment he is distributing
and the results it accomplishes.
The call for a work of this kind has been so persistent, and
has necessitated such a heavy correspondence with scientific insti
tutions of Germany and Austria, where Professor Migge formerly
was so well known, that publication of the volume will relieve the
private secretaries of Professor Migge*
of much of their routine work. Pro
fessor Migge has requested that the
public be notified that copies of the
work will be mailed promptly to all
who request a copy, until the edition
Although the new work of the
Migge Laboratories was introduced
to the public little more than two
months ago, already each day brings
to the private office of the scientist
scores of visitors who have received
the benefits of the new treatment for
the hair which the science of the bac
teriologist has made possible. These
visitors are ef those who received
the treatment since the discovery of
the new method was officially an
nounced, and the results they have
received have in almost every case
been more gratifying than was prom
ised by the scientist when the treat
ment was extended to them.
Many visitors to the Migge Labora
tories during the last few weeks have
asked for results from the new treat
ment which would be impossible to
promise. Many have been disap
pointed by being turned away with
no comfort whatever. Those who
have received the treatment, however,
all have experienced more satisfactory
Western Metropolitan Forces
Will Be Heard in Master
pieces of Lyric Stage
The coming season of grand opera
by the Western Metropolitan Opera
company, which opens at the Tivoli
on Monday, October 13, will be a test
from two points of view: It will tell
whether the San Francisco public
agrees with eastern and European
music lovers, who have proclaimed
the leading artists of this organiza
tion to be among the world's best;
and whether an opera season with
these high priced .singers can be suc
cessful from a financial standpoint at
the popular prices which, as an
nounced, will prevail at the Tivoli
grand opera season, which prices will
range from 30 cents to J2, a trifling
higher price being charged for box
The repertoire of the coming sea
son is remarkably interesting on ac
count of its variety, for it includes
operas of both the old and new
schools, of the Italian, as well as
French and German composers.
Among the prtficlpal operas to be
given are Verdi's "I'Lombardi," "Br
nani," "Ballo in Maschera," "La
Traviata," "Rigoletto." 11 Trovatore."
"Aida" and "Othello"; the Puccini
operas to be given are "La Boheme,"
"Manon Lescaut," "Madame Butter- j
fly" and "La Tosca"; Wagner's "Lo
hengrin" and "Tannhauser" will also
be produced, besides Bizet's "Car
men." Thomas' "Mignon." Massenet':
"Thais" and Mascagni's "Cavalleria
Rusticana" and "Amico Fritz."
Naturally, to this repertoire there
are to be added the Leoncavallo op
eras, which, under the leadership of
the composer, will take on an excep
tional and intense interest. San
Francisco music lovers have heard
"l'Pagliaeci hundreds of times with
tiie famous prologue, which is the de
light of all audiences, as well as the
favorite of all barytones; but, no
matter how often this opera has been
given, it will appear in new light and
life when Leoncavallo will wield his
baton, going through the melodies of
the impassioned opera. *

results than even were promised, and
by these the scientist has been con
gratulated for his policy of being
conservative rather than promise
more than science can accomplish.
Especial pains have been taken by
Professor Migge to make the lay pub
lic understand what members of all
scientific professions know —that
nothing can be accomplished toward
restoration of the hair or the pre
vention of baldness without the as
sistance and co-operation of nature.
Manufacturers of the various •"hair
tonics" which have been Imposed upon
the public for a century or more have
made their fortunes by promising that
which is impossible—and promising it
in the face of the knowledge accepted
by all bacteriologists that no method
of restoring hair or saving it where
baldness is threatened can be effect
ive unless it embraces a method of
removing the bacteria which cause

ANTI- JAPANESE PICNIC

park, Stege Junction. There will be

act nature of the bacteria infection,
the peculiarities of the especial bac
teria responsible for the condition of
the hair complained of, and with this
knowledge, revealed by the micro
scope after bacteria have been iso
lated, the scientist Is enabled to pre
pare that treatment which will re
move that particular bacteria. With
the bacteria removed lt is not any
human agency that" brings about a
restoration of the hair or stops its
falling, breaking or splitting, but na
ture itself—for all that is necessary
to healthy hair is health in the hair
roots, and lt only is bacteria infec
tion which deprives the hair roots of
their normal health and strength.
Professor Migge has repeatedly an
nounced that he desires the public to
understand that when the hair roots
have been killed by the bacteria no
hair can be restored through those
roots. It only is in cases of advanced
baldness, however, where the hair
roots usually have been killed, and
ln such cases the elimination of the
bacteria will do no more than save
what hair remains. Baldness is not
always a sign, however, that the roots
are dead. Occasionally the bacteria
infection is in the hair canal, thus,
causing the hair to break and fall
just as it is pushed through the scalp.
In such cases the hair roots are
healthy, but are prevented from
functioning by 'the bacteria that at
tacks the hair after it has only par
tially grown. In such cases the
elimination of the bacteria promptly
restores the hair to its normal health
and permits it to grow.
The public is invited by Professor
Migge and his associates in the lab
oratories to witness demonstrations
of bacteriological conditions as local
to the hair, and a visit to the labora
tory is exceptionally interesting, for
it is there only that, the exact mean
ing of the application of the science
of bacteriology to the saving of the
hair may be understood. —Advertise-
DANCE MAD PARIS
TRIES NEW STEPS
"Fish Walk" and "Maxixe

PARIS, Sept. 20. —Every thing seems
to show that we are going to have
a craze for dancing this winter, a
tiling which would have been thought
impossible a few short years ago,
when we were too blase to take an
interest in anything except bridge and
chroriique scandaleuse, and when the
only people who danced were the stu
dents of the Quartier Latin and the
young artists with their grisettes
There seems to be no end to the

all parts of the globe, each one with
Its particular claim to naughtiness,
which is the charm af all our fash
ionable dances, though I assure you
that we are not the least bit more
naughty that we were before.
The latest dances, at least the latest
ones that I have actually seen, are
the "fish walk" and the "Maxixe
Bresllienne," not to be confounded
with the once popular "matchlche" of
an age ago.
The one step has gone out of fash
ion entirely, "Boston" we are quite
sure never existed, but we dance
Tango slowly, passionately, with all
the charm we possess, while we are
trying to recover our lost breath.
