HATS CAUSE BALDNESS.
They Make the Scalp a Breeding
Place for Microbes.
Nel York World.
There is every reason to believe
that primitive man had a thick and
abundant head of hair and that this
natural clothing of the scalp is dimin
ishing among civilized people and will
eiad by disappearing altogether, which
would certainly not be advantageous
from an aesthetic point of view. The
caxse of this disappearance of the hair
acording to the doctors, must be
sought in the very conditions of civi
lization and in the customs it has in
troduced. One of the customs espec
ially hurful to the hair , the hat, and,
above al', the masculine hat, so we see
man's hair suffer more than woman's.
The hat produces baldness by two
different methods. First it creates
about the head an atmosphere which
is fatally warm and moist and which
prevents the penetration of the rays of
light that are so fatal to bacteria; the
hat makes for the microbes a sort of
improvished hotbed which is extreme
ly favorable to their developement,
and it is known that microbes play an
.1m@o..ant role in the production of
baldness. If it had been desired to
foster the existence of microbes cap
pable of living upon the scalp or in
the hair a more favorable means for
their protection and multiplication
than the hat could not have been
found. Again, the hat, holding its
place upon the head sorely by pres
imre, exerts a second pernicious in
fluepce upon the scalp; it compresses
the arteries and the veins; it impedes
the circulation of the blood and con
sequently the nutrition of the organs
which produce the hair. It is there
fore doubly desirable that the reign
of tie hat should cease in the case of
men, for with. women the hat is so
light a thing that it can exert only a
trifling proportion of the ravages it is
responsible for in men, and that this
garment -should be renounced or re
placed by some less injurious article.
As a matter of fact men., would be
very healthy with bare heads. The
hair would be strengthened and would
serve as a hat; it would only be nec
essary to protect the head against the
rays of the sun in summer in order to
avoid sunstroke. It is true the public
imagines that it would catch cold
more easily, but this is a mistake. A
draft alone is not enough to give
cold; a microbe is absolutely neces
sary. From the hygienic point of view
there are fewer inconveniences in go
ing with. the head bare than in carry
ing about upon it a hothouse for mi
Helen Keller's First Dance.
Helen Keller, the famous blind and
deaf gri, whose acheviements are the
wonder of ,the civilized world, .is at
the home of her mother in Florence,
Alabama, where she came for a com
plete rest of several months. In a
pretty cottage surrounded by a blue
grass lawn and handsome oak trees,
she will, renew the home ties which
were interrupted fifteen years ago,
when she commenced acquiring, un
der the guidance of Miss Sullivan, the
wonderful amount of knowledge she
Miss Keller arrived the wveek before
Christmas to spend the first Chrstmas
in twelve years with her mother, her
sister, Mildred, and her little broth-er,
Phillips. Florence was very gay dur
ing the holidays, and for the first time
she exchanged the habits of a stu
dent and hard worker for those of
a society butterfly. Up to this time
she had never danced except with
girls at school and great was her de
light when the nigh-t after Christmas
she attended her first real ball and
danced like the other girls. Miss Kel
ler is a graceful dancer, and as she
glided around the room, keeping per
fect time to the music, it was hard to
realize that to her all was darkness
and silence and that her movements
were not inspired to the strains of the
She was especailly interested in the
german given by the "Rosebuds"~ in
the set to which her younger sister
belongs, and was one of the busiest
at making the favors.
Miss Keller is always accessible to
her friends, and nothing gives her
more pleasure than to meet those
whom she knew in her early days.
Her marvelous memory is frequently
demonstarted by remarks she makes
when people are presented to her.
'oughr she has been far from her na
the State. F
tive home for the past fiteen years
except for brief visits at rare inter
vals, she is familiar with the minutes
incidents of Alabama history, botl
ancient and modern, and with its lit
erature as well.
He Knew the Train.
A traveler went into a union avenu
barber shop yesterday morning to ge
a shine, and decided to inquire abou
his train, says the Kansas City Star
"Say," he said, addressing the negr<
bootblack. "What time does the Mis
souri Pacific leave for St. Louis thi.
"You mean the one that makes th<
daylight run?" queried the negro.
"'Yes that's the one," said the man
"Ah, it ah the train that connec'
wif the one from Leavenworth, aip'1
it?" asked the bootblack, as he brush
"Runs fru Wahnsbur'gh?"
"An' Jefferson City?"
"I knows the train yoh means, al
right. Stan' on the secon' er thu(
thrack, doin' it?"
"I think it does."
"Changes ingines-. Le see. Wh
do dat train change ingines?"
"I don't know," said the man
"What I want to know is its leaving
"Ah knows jes' what yoh wants, an
Ah knows jes' exactly what train yot
"Well, when does it leave?"
"Oh, yes; when do it leave? Ah.
suah Ah doan' knowv 'bout that, boss,'
vas the negro's reply.
A writer in Lippincott's tells of
young teacher who had taken specia
pains to implans a knowledge of Unit
ed States history, who could but fee
that much good seed had fallen or
stony ground, when at the final ex
amination the question: "What char
acter do you like best, and why?
brought forth the following replies:
"Andrew Jackson, because he whip
ped the British with an old hickory?
"Grant, who was elected presiden
twice and around the world o.nce."
- like Monroe for doctrin' the peo
pie and Jackson, standing on a ston<
wall and fell dead.'
Lincoln, who was shot and kille<
standing in a booth, and lied saying
'Jefferson survives. I am contented.
--De Soto. who waded in the Missis
sippi up to his elbows and there foun<
-Old General Putnam, who left hi:
ox and his ass in the field and wen
and beat the British."
"The redoubtful John Paul Jones
because he said, 'We'll beat them Brit
ish or bust,' and then did it."
