Sept. 20.—There seems to be no limit to the kaiser's energy, which appears to increase rather than decrease with the years. Never has Willi.am shown himself more worthy of his' old nickname, "der reise kai ser" (the traveling kaiser). Ever since he returned from the Norwegian cruise Emperor William has been on the go. The brain of the emperor is lit erally teeming- with schemes and plans. It was he who made the peace pf Bucharest possible; it was he who compelled Austria to show herself more conciliatory toward Servia and Greece and abandon her intention of backing/ up Bulgaria, and i* is he who is now planning the foundation of a new great Greek em pire in the Balkans' to balk the cen tury old ambitions of Russia. REVIVE BYZANTINE EMPIRE It was the kaiser who first sug gested to his brother in law. King Corrstantine of Greece, that he must have a coronation worthy of rejuve nated Greece. It was he who sug gested that the crown and purple mantle of the old Byzantine emperors, which have been preserveM by the monks of Mount Athos, be used once more at the investiture of Constan tine, to be called Augustus, symboliz ing the coming renaissance of the Byz antine empire under an emperor re lated to the Hohenzollerns. to be suc ceeded by his son, in whose veinis flows the Hohenzollern blood. WRITES SPEECHES Attending the great military ma neuvers from dawn until darkness with the enthusiasm of a young man. the kaiser spends the evening writing fiery speeches and devlsrhg new de tails to make the centennial celebra tion In memory of the first defeats of the great Napoleon more impYesslve. These celebrations center around and will culminate sit when, on October 16, the veil falls from the great monument erected on the battle field of Leipzig in the presence of an audience of emperors and kings, of their official representatives, each in command of a representative detach ment of the army of his country.

DEMONSTRATIONS OF SCIENTIFIC METHOD OF SAVING THE HAIR AT THE MIGGE LABORATORIES A comer of the Migge laboratories, showing Prof. Migge at work with his beloved microscope. Distinguished Scientist, Whose Method of Preventing Baldness by Removing the Bacteria Responsible, Congratulated by Visitors The public interest in the work of Professor Friedrich Migge, from whose laboratories in The Call building the scientific world was notified a short time ago of the discovery of a method of in vigorating and restoring the hair by elimination q£ the bacteria which, as the scientific world has known for more than a genera tion, cause the falling of the hair and baldness, has become so great, spreading as it has into almost every nation, that Professor Migge has found it necessary to compile a book devoted to his re searches, the scientific principle of the treatment he is distributing and the results it accomplishes. The call for a work of this kind has been so persistent, and has necessitated such a heavy correspondence with scientific insti tutions of Germany and Austria, where Professor Migge formerly was so well known, that publication of the volume will relieve the private secretaries of Professor Migge* of much of their routine work. Pro fessor Migge has requested that the public be notified that copies of the work will be mailed promptly to all who request a copy, until the edition is exhausted. Although the new work of the Migge Laboratories was introduced to the public little more than two months ago, already each day brings to the private office of the scientist scores of visitors who have received the benefits of the new treatment for the hair which the science of the bac teriologist has made possible. These visitors are ef those who received the treatment since the discovery of the new method was officially an nounced, and the results they have received have in almost every case been more gratifying than was prom ised by the scientist when the treat ment was extended to them. Many visitors to the Migge Labora tories during the last few weeks have asked for results from the new treat ment which would be impossible to promise. Many have been disap pointed by being turned away with no comfort whatever. Those who have received the treatment, however, all have experienced more satisfactory OPERA COMPANY PLANS REPERTORY Western Metropolitan Forces Will Be Heard in Master pieces of Lyric Stage The coming season of grand opera by the Western Metropolitan Opera company, which opens at the Tivoli on Monday, October 13, will be a test from two points of view: It will tell whether the San Francisco public agrees with eastern and European music lovers, who have proclaimed the leading artists of this organiza tion to be among the world's best; and whether an opera season with these high priced .singers can be suc cessful from a financial standpoint at the popular prices which, as an nounced, will prevail at the Tivoli grand opera season, which prices will range from 30 cents to J2, a trifling higher price being charged for box seats. The repertoire of the coming sea son is remarkably interesting on ac count of its variety, for it includes operas of both the old and new schools, of the Italian, as well as French and German composers. Among the prtficlpal operas to be given are Verdi's "I'Lombardi," "Br nani," "Ballo in Maschera," "La Traviata," "Rigoletto." 11 Trovatore." "Aida" and "Othello"; the Puccini operas to be given are "La Boheme," "Manon Lescaut," "Madame Butter- j fly" and "La Tosca"; Wagner's "Lo hengrin" and "Tannhauser" will also be produced, besides Bizet's "Car men." Thomas' "Mignon." Massenet': "Thais" and Mascagni's "Cavalleria Rusticana" and "Amico Fritz." Naturally, to this repertoire there are to be added the Leoncavallo op eras, which, under the leadership of the composer, will take on an excep tional and intense interest. San Francisco music lovers have heard "l'Pagliaeci hundreds of times with tiie famous prologue, which is the de light of all audiences, as well as the favorite of all barytones; but, no matter how often this opera has been given, it will appear in new light and life when Leoncavallo will wield his baton, going through the melodies of the impassioned opera. * BACKUS IS REAPPOINTED Governor Johnson yesterday reap pointed United States Immigration Commissioner Samuel YV.

Woodruff has been elected i commandant of the home. results than even were promised, and by these the scientist has been con gratulated for his policy of being conservative rather than promise more than science can accomplish. Especial pains have been taken by Professor Migge to make the lay pub lic understand what members of all scientific professions know —that nothing can be accomplished toward restoration of the hair or the pre vention of baldness without the as sistance and co-operation of nature. Manufacturers of the various •"hair tonics" which have been Imposed upon the public for a century or more have made their fortunes by promising that which is impossible—and promising it in the face of the knowledge accepted by all bacteriologists that no method of restoring hair or saving it where baldness is threatened can be effect ive unless it embraces a method of removing the bacteria which cause the trouble. The Migge treatment is individual in each case submitted—as all sincere treatments must be. The microscopi cal examination of samples of hair I plucked from different portions of the j scalp reveals to the scientist the f ex- WHAT DO YOU DO WITH YOUR WHISKERS NIGHTS? Just what can be done, just what should be done with one's whiskers at night is still a terrible issue. San Francisco is divided on the question. One man declares that whiskers must be tucked ln at night. Another as serts with equal energy that they should be left outside the coverlids. Otier suggestions have been advanced by the artist. What do YOU do about it? ANTI- JAPANESE PICNIC The first annual picnic of the anti Japanese league of Alameda county will be held tomorrow at Lafayette park, Stege Junction. There will be valuable gate and game prizes and other feautres. The committee in charge is: H. Lafon , chairman; Frank G. Hunt, G. P. Webster, C. B. Calou and D. R. Lopez. act nature of the bacteria infection, the peculiarities of the especial bac teria responsible for the condition of the hair complained of, and with this knowledge, revealed by the micro scope after bacteria have been iso lated, the scientist Is enabled to pre pare that treatment which will re move that particular bacteria. With the bacteria removed lt is not any human agency that" brings about a restoration of the hair or stops its falling, breaking or splitting, but na ture itself—for all that is necessary to healthy hair is health in the hair roots, and lt only is bacteria infec tion which deprives the hair roots of their normal health and strength. Professor Migge has repeatedly an nounced that he desires the public to understand that when the hair roots have been killed by the bacteria no hair can be restored through those roots. It only is in cases of advanced baldness, however, where the hair roots usually have been killed, and ln such cases the elimination of the bacteria will do no more than save what hair remains. Baldness is not always a sign, however, that the roots are dead. Occasionally the bacteria infection is in the hair canal, thus, causing the hair to break and fall just as it is pushed through the scalp. In such cases the hair roots are healthy, but are prevented from functioning by 'the bacteria that at tacks the hair after it has only par tially grown. In such cases the elimination of the bacteria promptly restores the hair to its normal health and permits it to grow. The public is invited by Professor Migge and his associates in the lab oratories to witness demonstrations of bacteriological conditions as local to the hair, and a visit to the labora tory is exceptionally interesting, for it is there only that, the exact mean ing of the application of the science of bacteriology to the saving of the hair may be understood. —Advertise- ment. DANCE MAD PARIS TRIES NEW STEPS "Fish Walk" and "Maxixe Bresilienne" Replace One- Step; Tango Remains LA RECONTEUSE PARIS, Sept. 20. —Every thing seems to show that we are going to have a craze for dancing this winter, a tiling which would have been thought impossible a few short years ago, when we were too blase to take an interest in anything except bridge and chroriique scandaleuse, and when the only people who danced were the stu dents of the Quartier Latin and the young artists with their grisettes and models. There seems to be no end to the new dances. They come to us from all parts of the globe, each one with Its particular claim to naughtiness, which is the charm af all our fash ionable dances, though I assure you that we are not the least bit more naughty that we were before. The latest dances, at least the latest ones that I have actually seen, are the "fish walk" and the "Maxixe Bresllienne," not to be confounded with the once popular "matchlche" of an age ago. The one step has gone out of fash ion entirely, "Boston" we are quite sure never existed, but we dance Tango slowly, passionately, with all the charm we possess, while we are trying to recover our lost breath.
