Early Egyptian Hairdressing.
The hairdressing of early Egyptian
times is interesting. Wigs were ex
ceedingly popular, through many dy
nasties, for both men and women. The
women, however. In various Instances,
were rather more Inclined to let their j
own hair grow long, arranging It with i
extreme simplicity by hanging a fore
lock over each shoulder In front and
letting the rest hang straight down
the back. It appears, from some old
statues, that they occasionally Inter
wove beads or some sort of a pendant
with these front locks, which doubt
less helped keep them in place. Then,
too, they sometimes wore a sort of
filet, a device perhaps borrowed from
the Greeks. More elaborate head
dresses were also indulged In. Some
statues show strange, almost conical
affairs upon the heads, which archaeol
ogists say contained balls wet with
some fragrant oil which trickled slow
ly through the hair and over the neck
and shoulders. Perfumes were said
to be extremely popular among these
early people.

Seneficence Without Ambition.
At present we behold only the rising
of our sun of empire—only the fair be«
ginnings of a great nation. We de
parted early—we departed at the be
ginning—from the beaten track of am
bition. Our lot was cast in the age
of revolution—a revolution which is to
bring all mankind from a state of serv
itude to the exercise of self-govern
ment—from under the tyranny of phy
sical force to the gentle sway of opin
ion, from under subjection to domin
ion over nature.
It was ours to lead the way—to take
up the cross of republicanism and
bear lt before the nations, to fight Its
earliest triumphs, to illustrate its puri
fying and elevating virtues, and by
our courage and resolution, our mod
eration and magnanimity, to cheer and
sustain Its future followers through
the baptism of blood and martyrdom
of fire. A mission so noble and benev
olent demands a generous and self
denying enthusiasm. Our greatness
is to be won by beneficence without
ambition.—William Henry Seward.
Nerves In Sexes Differ.
The late Professor Munsterberg of
Harvard believed that the sensory
mechanism of women worked quicker
than that of men. He took the Illus
tration of two sets of wires, corre
sponding to the nerves of the human
body, conducting a current of elec
tricity to a certain point. The wires of
woman's nerves were able to communi
cate to the fixed point, in this case the
brain, the current much more quickly
than the tsale equipment, and, further
more, reacted to currents too faint for
man's wires to tnke up. The addition
of these subtle stimuli produced in the
receiving center an entirely different
comprehension In woman than In man,
Munsterberg argued.—Chicago Exam
