' luxuriant tresses and few possess them H 's 'hose who Ions for beautiful hair and t hnt Is merely well-carei lor hair that Prof. cm. i Jacqutfi La Tour, the noted French iiy beauty expert, addresses this week. ' 1 Don't have a falling out with fc your hair," he tells you " It isn't JJ necessary if you shampoo properly jg. and know the value of sunshine on Uj, your scalp." Passing by for the time being the 1W t question of your general bodily health, which Is the chief and most frequent cuso of falling hair, and assuming that your physical condl I tion otherwise Is Rood. Prof. La Tour , says the loss of hair Is caused either by the use of Injurious bleaches or dyes, or by not giving proper car F to the condition of jour s.r.tlp. "The farmer prepares the soil f before he sows his crop." he says, . "and after he hat sowed the crop he cultivates the soil Look well to I the soil from which your hair grows. T Keep the skin cool and moist and loose from the scalp If your scalp L is drj'i or scabby, take frequent F dhampoos. And to return to the f comparison of the farmer cultivat ing his crops be sure and glvo It ' plenty of sunshine. No crop will grow, except dank fungi, If deprived i of sunshine, and your hair Is a trop." Prof. La Tours advocacy of the I sunshine treatment for baldness as well a9 for falllnK hair, has caused I a sensation In European medical circles ns well ns amonK his niany r aristocratic patrons. He believes I that the deprivation of .sunshine Is fthc cause of a majority of the bald heads of the world. And he points cut that baldness Is incomparably more lrequcnt anions me: than norncn. This, he Is due to the ' lact that tho headgear of men for centuries has been designed to lit closely to the head and cover most ; of the hair while that of women ul I travs was comparatively light and airy. Then men wear their hats much more than do women. Prof. Ia, Tour has named his ' treat in nt the sunshine cure While lor falling hair and to prevent fall I Ids hair he suggests only that von '. give your hair a "sun bath" be slt- tug in 1 3 1 o bun's rays for at least a quarter of an hour each day. to j cure baldness he uses more strenu- out means. He concentrates the 1 L llfe-glv Ins sunshine uion the bar ren spot. i If you should be In Paris and had Botlcdd baldness beginning to ap Bear. as It does, beginning with n point s .j !

Prof. La Tour Tells How to Treat Hair. But you are not in Paris, so f Prof. La Tour tells you. through I this newspaper, how you may ad- minister the treatment at your horn--, v. ith the aid ol a friend It il simple Have your friend hold the burning glas-s, focusing the sun's . rays on the bald spot, as near as possible to the head without dis comfort.

If the stinging sensation be painful, the glass must be further removed The person's own coin fort is the guide Professor La Tour has had amaz , Ing success In the administration of E1 ; this cure.

Lxpert3 differ as to whether ' It be ten to thirty or nfty to one hundmd. Most agree that it varies according to seasons, and we now are In one of the seasons when it falls most heavily Professor La Tour lays the nor mal fall Is from ten to thirty during most of the year, and from fifty to one hundred In the spring and fall. The hair must be kept absolutely free of dust If you would keep It healthy. Xot only should It be care fully brushed every night before re tiring as well as given Its dally "sun bath." but also It should be washed whenever it Is unusually dusty or tile scalp Is other than pure white or pink If the scalp Is over laid with brown dust it is high time for a shampoo, otherwise the hair will begin to fall. There Arc Injurious M ays to AYash Hair. ftcr an automobile ride, or any other exposure to dust, give your hair a shampoo, Professor La Tour says. And he tells you the proper method to do it Because there are Injurious methods. If the halt Is not properly rinsed, for Instance. It picks up dust quickly and ls harder to cleanse the next time Also If it is not thoroughly dried, particularly about the ears, you arc liable to neuralgic pains This La how to shampoo, according to Pro fessor La Tour "First." he says, "use a pure soap for your shampoo white Castile. I prefer. It Is best to have a bottle of liquid Shampoo prepared from it ready. Shave the soap, then melt It by adding hot water to It, stirring now and then until It becomes a Jelly Keep this in your bathroom ready for a shampoo. "When vou want a wet shampoo part your hair from the middle of your forehead In a straight line back to the neck. From this line make other parts, extending down to the ears, to the temples, and te the .-Ides of ho ne k. Brush the hair smooth ly away from each part "Now you are ready for the sham poo. Pour a handful rf the jelly Into a washbowl and over It pour warm water. Never use hot water, bees ibc extremes of temperature have an ill effeet upon the scalp Dip a soft toothbrush Into the warm water In which tho soap Jelly has no Ited and gently scrub the partings of the hair When this is finished empty the water and fill tho bowl again. "This time dip your lingers rto the water and rub the scalp all over with the cushions of the fingers. If the water In the bowl becomes at all clouded, empty it and draw fresh water. ' Now follows a most Important part of tho shampoo that is to thoroughly remove the soap from the hair. This Is done by pouring cool, not cold, water over the head. The old-fashioned water pitcher can be used In this way. or a shower can be given with a spray attach ment to a bath tub The latter la cheap enough to be within the reach of persons with moderatt means, Also It has the advantage of scat tering tho water well instead of pouring it steadily on one spot. For this reaaon th larger the spray the better. The be6t one is that which Is of the same- size as ihc head. There are many devices for dry ing the hair hot-all f'mnel?. elec trical appliances, etc.. but the best, . . gft : :,..,.; :' v In my opinion, is no cheapest Dry -fWEkL oiir hair with n towel in a sunshiny KfwSf . corner of your house, or, in the r- summer, on your roof or your gar- " t-JfK'&fo&lr den Then you get that revivifying sunshine -Tj& 'Ity "A dry shampoo, wlthhab should be applied to the scalp with a soft tooth brush In tho samo way I described ns the beginning f a wet shampoo. Part the hair In as many directions and with as many parts as possible, and rub tho tonic well into the scalp with the tooth brush." Of course, in obstinate cases of falling hair, those that havQ been let go without attention for a con siderable period, the "sun baths" should be supplemented with other treatments. One of these, recom mended by Professor Li Tour. Is much in use in St. .Petersburg, Rus sia, a city whose women arc noted for their magnificent ' hair. it Is cheap and simple. Fill two bowls with water. One with tho water as hot as can bo borne, the other w.lth cold water, or. If preferred, with cracked lee Dip e. soft towel Into the hot water and press this upon tho scalp leaving It on for two to three minutes-. Plunge another towel Into the bowl of cold water and next press it also on tho scalp. Or, if tho bowl be filled with cracked Ice. wrap tho Ice In tho towel and place It upon the head. Leave It there for one minute, then repeat the hot-water application. Then follow again with the cold water or the Ice. Repeat each ap plication about three times. "Dry the scalp thoroughly with towel and by rubbing It with the finger tips, hut do this in the sun shine. Shake out the hair well. SO the strands will cling together. A very good r.d Invigorating treatment also is to rub small strands of the hair vigorously and briskly between the palms of the hands. This detaches tho hairs from each other, making each stand out Individually; it also pol ishes the hair, giving it the peculiar gloss of health, not of cosmetics, that Is one of the unmistakable signs of good grooming " And Professor La Tour also Is a believer m massage. When hair falls unduly, he ay.. It Ls becauso the hair roots are not nourished r,y nough blood. To obtain a fresh supply of blood for the scalp is th problem. Sunshine will do it and the hot and cold towel treatment Is similarly designed. But all of these should be supplemented by message "Massage the scalp with th linger tips." he says "segM with has been coaxed to grow and which n slow lirm pressure at the outer is of infant like weakness when it tlm of the scalp, or the hair line. n ""t appears Is: Beginning at the natural parting 3Xd2riBd al0h0,, P,nt- of tho hair, above the middle ot f " " OQ 11in the face, press Ihe scalp lightly but , in tne same wa a9 th foregoing. gently.

"Of local applications I recom mend fo: falling hair that la 1 dry ' this. "Mercury oleatc. 2 ozs. "OH of ergot, 'I ozs.

Stimulating to the new hair that the possible destructive mlciobc has been banished. "Be sure to obtain good circula tion once more In the Ill-nourished scalp Excessive ra)llnsxf the hair. In the final analysis, is due to bad nourishment of tho roots of the hair; and malnutrition of tho hair is due to defective circulation, and the detective circulation Is caused by nervousness. "Did you ever think of giving your hair exercise? You laugh. But It Is very necessary. That is why I have recommended brushing, and rubbing It between tho palms of the hands, and shaking It brisk ly as tho famous Anr.a Hold does. But these aro gentle exercises, A good exercise that will be appre i i ited by the roots of your hair can bi given by gently pulling It at the ends "Also bo sure to give your hair of ventilation. Men do not. and that ls one of the reasons why men with their tlght-llttlng. unven tllated hat-s, are so much more prone to baldness than women, lt your hair hang awhile after you have brushed -it so the air can reach its roots. A better way ls to fan it gently. Do not fan it vig orously because that would cause n cold or neuralgia. But Kentle fanning for five to fifteen minutes every day will give the scalp what ' we ourselves so greatly need and cannot live without fresh air." In other words, Professor La Tour tells you to treat your h;ir as a part of yourself, not as a mere decoration as a hat, a Jewel or a gown, although, as we said. It woman's crowning decoration when It u healthy. If you do not, your hair will be no more than a decor tion liko unto a hat, to ho put on BLUE LOBSTERS ARE THE LATEST Tho latest diet craze Is to have your food as highly colored as pos sible and, from Germany comes the pale blue lobster, the Invention of a learned professor named Korn fcld. Red lobsters being loo com monplace to whet the jaded appe tites of society diners, the professor hit upon tho brilliant idea of adding an alkali lo the water In which tho lobsters are boiled. As a result they come out a pretty pale blue, and the smart set are able to breathe again. Lobsters arc not the only food Poses hv ya Merlin. that Gorman aristocrats wish to bo highly colored. Rose-colored soup and tinted bread also enter into tho menus Apparently thero Is a scientific reason for this latest fad in diet. An eminent medical man gave It as hi opinion some time ago that a per son's character can bo gauged by the kind of colors he prefers In his foods. Thus, if you are very fond of yellow-colored foods you are probably a person of somewhat low and vulgar tastes, but If you choose dishes of a brown or chocolate color von show yourself to be a person V and taken off as (he occasion re quires.

I A speaker at tho Pure Food and Health Conference, recently held f in London, pointed out tho fact that very few persons care for food that la quite colorless. "Invalids order colored jellies and port wine," he said. 'Children prefer colored sweets. Most of us would soon tire of all-white food." i Statistics of iron Oro Production.
