Bead and Balr of Infanta.
The heads of infants should not be
washed in brandy, whisky, spirits of harts
horn or other stimulating washes. They
do no good, cause pain, and may so irritate
the tender scalp as to cause disease.
For cleansing the head, soap and water.
or water with a little borax in it, are all
that is needed. After washing the scalp a
soft hair brush should be used. This will
remove any dirt or dandruff, and will not
Irritate the skin as a comb would be likely
The hair of both boys and girls should
be kept short till 8 or 9 years of age. This
will conduce to cleanliness; prevent a great
deal of trouble in combing and washing;
will leave no harbor for the abominable
creepers to which children are exposed,
and by keeping the head cool will render
children less liable to the inflammatory
affections of the brain, to which they are
strongly predisposed at their time of life.
Thus marrigeu, the bair will be smooth
and glossy, and accumulations on the
scalp will be prevented.
The custom of putting caps ou infants
having been abolished by all well informed
people, it is hardly necessary to say that
the practice should be abandoned by all.
as the bead is warm enough without the
cap, is very likely to be too warm with it,
ana in tarn way causing tne orain aixec-
tions to which children are so prone.

The World's Fairs.
ine creuit or tue urst Lmversal ex
position is due to Albert, the late prince
consort of Queen Victoria, and the initiat
ive was taken at a meeting of the society
of arts in London, 1849. A Kuaranteefund
of 1,000.000 was raised, and the exposition
was held in ISol. 1 he second was held in
New ork in 1853. Ihe idea became popu
lar, and several countries held smaller ex
positions in the few years following, but
the next great effort was in South Ken
sington, London, in 1862, and an effort was
made nine years later to keep npan annual
exposition on a grand scale. The fc'rs
were continued during several montns
each of 1871. 1873 and the two following
years, but public interest flagged, and the
attempt was given up.
In the meantime expositions had been
held in Paris in 1855 and ISOt, and a most
splendid display in 1878 demonstrated the
business tact and energy of the French.
while in 1873 an exposition was held in
Vienna, and another in Berlin in 1881, suc
ceeded in Kurope by several others on a
smaller seal", and lastly by the great
French fair of 1SS0. In the United States
there has been held since tbe Centennial
exposition of 1870 but one display of the
kind the World's fair in New Orleans in
1SS5. St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Itelasco's Karly I'luys.
David Belasco, the playwright, savs: "In
my early days I used to be indefatigable
in bringing plays of mine to managers.
One manager I suspected of never reading
any plays, so I tneu a trick on him. One
day I gave him a roll of blank paper tied
with red ribbon. He received tbe roll po
litely, and told me to call in two weeks. I
called as he had requested, and he said he
had read the play, but that unfortunately
it wouldn't do. Then I slowly unrolled the
blank paper lefore his eyes, held it up to
mm ana enjoyed the comedy situation. "-
