wliv Hipper knows all about It. and be

Tent the traffic In It u ma a hair U lo

MppMe to cMIUed communities, so
culled, where the latest fashions hare
found their nay and where tbe enormous
s'.-ick of hair is looked upon ss a neces
sity ,
To the Komaa of Breton, whose main
nhject In lire Is to marry, and wuose
fiance Is thrifty and needs the money,
the coining of the hair shearer is a bless
ing. Kor I here Is the hoive to be fur
nished, the trouxsean to be provided, the
other ne-rKsary arrangements to he made
for the nuptial day. When Jean finds
out that bis intended's hair has a com
mercial valne he loses bis sentimentality
and proceeds to push ns bard a bargain
as he possibly can. If Eleanora's hair Is
worth $50 to the shearer It bas do com
mercial mine to him. And. like a cun
ning soul, as he considers himself, be
bargains with the clipper until finally
lier hair Is In the tatter's sack and 150

ud It Is from such people as these that
vour graud madam and her no less grand
laughter, with their thin hair, obtain
tbe almost Impossible balr coronets that
they wear on every occasion.
The Hair Harvest.
It might surprise yon to know that tbe
r..!lr nit from rosy-checked peasant girls
In Europe, from the bare-footed women
of the Indies, from the swarthy-cheeked
daughter of tbe Orient, Is annually im
ported to this country at an expense of
more than 5.000,000. Bnt the balr deal
er in Europe makes very satisfactory
profit before ba starts product to
this country, and the Importers here are
by no means eligible for tV. almshouse
or the bread row. They all, make some
thing out of It wither as shearers or
local dealers, tber is a profit for every
body and the only victims are the wom
en who allow themselves to lose :beir
chief adornment for a small price and
the American men who are compelled to
foot tbe bills.
"There are few women nowadays who
do not wear artificial hair of some sort."
said a dealer In hair recently. "They
pay from 80 cents a pound upward for
it. 1 have sold switches for jl.'-tX). In
our business, wblcb bas Increased 300
per cent, during tbe last year, tbe great
est care and tbe best taste most always
be exercised. Tbe balrs of a switch
must, yon can readily understand, be of
uniform lengtb and tbe balr that makes
It up may come from as many as one
hundred beads.
"There lire hundreds of balr agents
scouring every country In Europe for
yoiing women who can he inveigled Into
sclliug their tresses for a merely nom
inal sum. In Itpiy they secure coarse
black balr mostly. This brings the poor
est price in the market, but even that
is nothing to sneeze at. In Sweden the
most costly and beatitlfnl balr is ol
tained. It Is , a rarely fine texture nnd
is very lunch In demand among the so
ciety queeus to whom pri-e is the least
consideration as long as they can obtuin
the thing they want.
Something; About Prices.
"The European peasant girl who. with
the consent and the approbation of her
fiance sells ber charming tresses may re
ceive anywhere from one dollar to ten
dollars to compensate ber for ber loss.
Tbe latter figure Is tbe highest paid by
these professional shearers, who resort
to all kinds of devices to attain tbelr
end. nnd yet I have known of a case
when one batch of balr bought from a
Bretvu peasant girl for this sum was
sold in America to a leader of fashion
for $1,500. If tbe dealer who controlled
the sale of this particular head of hair
bad only Ifbistcd on It. 1 believe he could
have otU'il.ifi as n:n.h as $!;,( owing
to Its excen'!o:ial q-.sallty scj quantity."
Pure white huir that will reach M inciiet
in length Is considered Use ino-it valuable,
and Is very bard to oo!niu. A Urge
dealer In this country wiil willingly prty
as much as $in,00o for a case of 0t.
pounds of this hair. Of course. If lucre
is the slightest gray or yellow tlr.ge in
it It depreciates in value. The business
of securing pure white hnlr Is a difficult
one In ever- country. Most of It couies
from Northern Knrope. and a single switch
of the fluent quality represents the care
ful pickings frum many, ronny heads.
1 So. when the lady of fashion proceeds
to dress her hair there Is a certain ro
mantic lutcrest she can take In her bor
rowed make np. For instance, she may
have a switch containing one-half a pound
of hair. Some of It comes from tbe
love-lorn French peasant girl, some may
come from the girl who shepherds her
father's flocks In the mountaius of Swit
zerland, some may come from tbe thrifty
and hard-working daughters of the North
land. But from wherever It comes, it
answers a purpose it fills a luxurious
want of the woman of fashion, and so
it is useful, not only to mndum, who
follows the dictates of the fickle dame,
but to the European peasant girl, who
often wins a home and a husband from
tbe meager sum paid her for the loss
of womau's chief adornment.

It. Jl'STWED'S promise, hastily
given as be rushed off late for
tbe office in the mornlrg. gave
no evidence of developiug Into
the dire calamity It did. Little
did Mr. Justwed reckon the awful rouse
quences to his peace of mind. lie prom
ised in haste nnd repented at leisure, and
It all hnpei!ed thusly:
Mrs. Justwed. with that laudable pride
that every newly wed womau feels In
trotting out her husband and putting him
through UU paces for tbe admiration of
her friends, bad begun, with the grape
fruit at breakfast, glowing accounts of
the "at home" she Intended troing to that
afternoon, and finished wlin a promise
from her better-half that he wonld com.
home early and enter the crush with her.
"Now remember. Homer, dear." she
snld, for tbe hundredth time at least, as
she bade him "good-bye" at the front
door, "remember, we must be there at
C:3") this evening. Do come home early
enough to get dressed In time!"
And Mr. Justwed promised.
Of course. It wasn't, his fault! How
could be tell that the president of the
hank would come In at 3 o'clock that
afternoon with a special batch of ac-
On Miladfs Desk.
Of all parts of the house that should
be as attractive and as dainty as
possible, milady's desk Is the one.
There is nothing thnt serves so to make
a desk attractive as uoveltics In desk
Every housekeeper has use for an en
gagement book. They can be purchased
bound In embossed silk. In satin and In
grain leather. Shades of Indian red with
a dark tone of graining or In green and
tan or oiled brown are made In tbe pelts.
Calling books bound In similar colors,
with the dates of the year and the month
In order Inscribed on tbelr covers, are a
neeeflslty. i
Though the keeping of a diary Is an
old-fashioned idea, there are many women
who still do so. These can be purchased
In tashlonaltie lightweight leathers, lu
taupe-colored chamois and In corded silks,
fitted with miniature padlocks, the key
to which can be kept in tbe desk drawer.
There seemi to be a croze nowadays for
the keeping uf a diary of all tbe cnte
things a baby says and does. Such a
diary should be bound In fine white linen
or silk, embroidered with forget-me-nots
and stamped with the baby's name. Each
page bears the date of the day, month
and the year, and affords space for the
inserting of small photographs taken at
various stages of tbe baby's life.
Birthday and autograph books bound
In fine, soft leathers, elaborately em
bossed In point of lettering, are useful.
Tbe covers are usually tied together with
satin ribbon strings.
Needlework books holding patterns and
directions for crocheting and knitting and
embroidery, are bound in tan-colored
beavy linen. Frequently these covers are
decorated with band-painted floral de
signs and tbe edges of tbe covers fas
tened with ribbon strings.
Covers for magazines can be purchased
of flexible leather with strap bandies
that fold about tbe volume much as do
those on a handbag. Kacb month tbe
current issue of tbe favorite magazine is
inserted, and removed when tbe one for
tbe next month appears.
eVERT housekeeper knows that It is
difficult to keep ferns as she wonld
wish to. Table ferns should always
be kept well watered, and the best way
to do this Is to place them In tbe bathtub
and turn a spray on them. Make sure
that the water is cold, as warm water,
or even lukewarm water. Is Injurious.
Place tbe plants In a window where they
will receive light and the sun's rays for
a part of each day. 'With proper care
table ferns should last two months.
Boston and otber house ferns last about
six months, but they must be watered
every dy and every other day shonld be
placed In a vessel that will contain water
rising an inch above tbe top of the pots.
They should be allowed to remain In thil
water for a couple of hours. Should small
white Insects make their appearance on
the leaves the plants must be placed near
or In the smoking-room. If the man of
tbe bouse does not smoke, the alternative
is to spray tbe leaves with a solution of
tobacco and water.
BEDROOM curtains of heavy white
uet. with a border of a cretonne de
sign are the very latest for a bed
room. A border w!tn a blue ribbon an
Inch or so wide, caught here and there
with a single pink rose Is attractive.
Sucb a border can be cut from cretonne
and fastened to the net of tbe curtain,
with a chain stitch. Tbe edges may be
finished with a narrow pale blue galloon.
Another curtain much in use Is the mad
ras one. It is of an ecru tint, with fig
ures of flowers In artistic colors scattered
here and there. Tbe beavy border Is
used as a frieze Instead of being placed
at tbe bottom of the curtain. Madras
curtains In harmony with tbe furniture
of libraries and dens are desirable. For
a room furnished In mission style a cross
bar silk with woven figures In soft col
ors Is a correct drapery.
fy HILDREN'S clothing, lace curtains,
1 portieres, rugs and otber articles
J In the house may be made per
fectly fire-proof at very little expense and
with practically no trouble. Dissolve half
a pound of tnngstate of soda, which can
be bought at any drag store. In half a
gallon of water. Put' this Into bottles and
seal tightly. When the clothing Is ready
to hang on the line abont a tea cup of
the solution should be added to tbe rinsing
water. In the case of rugs and similar
articles the work should be done by
sponging them over with tbe solution,
added to four times tbe amount of water.
If tbe articles are to be starched the
solution should be added to tbe starch
instead of to the rinsing water.
TT Is not every picture that a boose
keeper considers worth tbe expense of
taking to an art dealer to bave framed.
In all department stores Inexpensive
frames can be purchased for an art bead
that one fancies in any of tbe Issues of
the various monthly magazines. If these
are framed with some regard for wbat Is
appropriate and wbat la not, they are an
addition to the home. A frame should
never be more prominent than the pic
ture. In framing a picture tbe idea la to
accentuate the high tones and bring ont
the meaning with the lights. Never nse
a wide frame with a narrow mat, nor a
narrow frame with a wide mat. A frame
that will take life or light from a pic
ture Is a mistake. A square frame on an
oval picture la an eyesore. A flat frame
ran never give a picture perspective. A
fine bead always loses half lu beauty
when surrounded by a beavy, dark frame.
Place a very narrow frame of wood. In
harmony with the tints of the picture,
around It, and the difference in the two
framings la remlrkable. The placing of
pictures on the wall la a subject which
must be left entirely with the Individ
ual's good taste. A definite color scheme
should be followed oat, and the picture
should be In harmony with the color of
tbe wall paper. Always place the largest
and heaviest pictures high op on the

For holding large pieces of laundry, sack
as table linen and bed linen, a circular
laundry bag is more serviceable. If
counts that be wanted straightened ont
before 6 o'clock? And that Mr. Justwed
didn't get home until 5:50 wasn't his
fault, either!
Mrs. Justwed was trembling on the
brink of tears nnd wrath devastating
when he finally opened tbe door and
rushed Into tbe apartment.
