History rreords the fact that la 1683,
lu England, long, flaxen htlr waa pur-clmr-d
from tlic head at 10 shillings an
ounce, while other fine) hair fetched
from 5 to 1 shillings for the same quan
tify, and within the present century the
hrad.i of whole families in Devonshire
were let cut by the year at so much per
poll, a periwig maker cf Exeter going
ronnd at certain periods to cut the locks,
afterward oiling tho skull of each bereft
perecn. That the nn of false hair as an
aid to feminine beauty was not unknown
to the anrirnts is well proved. The
Ureeks, P.omans and Egyptians, long
bef ore t lie dawn of tho Christian era,
resorted to tho wearing of tresses ob
tained from other persons' heads. They
even went so far as to point bald heads
so c to represent tnem as covered with
short hair, also marble caps so painted
were worn. A valuable merchandise in
tho blond hair of German women is
mentioned in ancient Roman history.

endeavor to answer. With tho coming
of spriug in the midlands and west of
Franee appeared what may fitly be
termed a singular class of nomadio indi
viduals, armed with long, iron tipped
staves and bearing heavy packs of mer
chacdi upon thrir backs. At first
glance cno r-ould have taken them to
be ordinary hawkers, yet merchandise
was but mi orctTsory to their strange
induMtry. They were the coupeurs, tho
reapers of a lunate harvest.

after hair wero known as chimncurs.
Tho Bretons called them margoulins.
These terms have not fit English paral

every effort to fjain their ends a good
head of hair tho former preferring the
local fail as n workroom, tho latter
choosing to visit the dwellings of their
possible clients. In summer the Brittany
margnulin was often seen going through
the streets, carrying his long staff, from
which hung twists of hair, while he

the cottagers, with an itching desire to
possess some of his gewgaws, attracted
the wandf-rer's attention. He was only
too plea'td to dazzle their eyes with his
many colored wares, and the bargaining
was not slow to begin. While the women
fingered his goods the margnulin weigh
ed her treses with his hand, a proceed
ing at whirh he was adept through long
practice. The bargain ended, the woman
yielded her abundant locks in return for
a few yards of cotton stuff or a gay pet

of civilization, thoconpeur hail to add a
small sum of money. Sometimes the
transaction was not completed without
much discussion on both sides. Very

Until the authorities intervened, cut

wares, each protesting bis to be far su

of this custom drove the hair harvesters
to erect tents, rent for the day unoccu

Were handled and even tried on, thus
affording an opportunity to the coupeurs
to flatter their fair customers who did
not long rest and victory rewarded the
cuto buyers. In Auvergne where the
coupeurs were most numerous the
greatest harvest was reaped on St John's
day. The ingathering extended from
April to September, during which month
tne butchers, bakers, locksmiths, etc..
forsook their ordinary avocations for
that of the coupeur, returning to their
legitimate trades with the coming of
the dead season. The hair of different
countries was distinguished by certain
qualities, lot instance, that of Au

most flaxen from Belgium; the blackest

Whew the First Expertsoeata Were Made
by f aha Bright. .
The printing of tapestry and velvet
carpets, after being woven in the white,
dates back 60 or more years ago. Old
carpet men will at once recall the fabric
made by John Bright at Rochdale, Eng
land, and bow be Hooded our country
with his products. Their introduction,
however, was difficult, as they came in
conflict with the productions of John
vAossley & Eons, then the greatest pro
ducers of the original tapestry and Tel
vets in the world. The difference, of
course, between the two productions
was that the Crossleys had the designs
printed, as now, in colors on the warp
before weaving, while that made by
John Bright (tapestry) had its figures
ana colors stamped upon the fabric by
hand after it was woven. The latter
process, however, presented a drugget
enect ana lacked tne style and accurate
registration of the Crossley carpets.
They had one thing to commend them
they were very durable. Bright'a goods
were first printed with blocks, and, be
ing durable and cheap, their sole was
large in many countries.
Cylinders or rollers were afterward
used by Bright, the cue being taken
from calico and kindred printing, but
they varied much in their construction.
One of these, used by an English manu
facturer, was a very elaborate and ex
pensive affair. The engraving of the de
sign upon the cylinder was very deep,
and the colors placed in their proper
places to correspond precisely with the
fabric itself, a painted design, contain
ing every color to be employed, being
used as a guide. In fact, the exact col
oring of the carpet was placed upon the
cylinder and from it transfered to the
plain fabric American Carpet and
