It is gravely asserted
lia Weed Holbrook, or New
that unstinted applications of the
best brand of piano music will permanently
cure baldness. SUe does
not cite the prodigious hairy growth
of performers of the Paderewski sj
school as proof of her theory, but s!
she does point to the fact that the tl
male occupants of the front rows in ni
the theatres usually hear the wind 'J
instruments in the orchestra chiefly, SI
which, according to her dogma, ac- ei
counts for their being generally bald. ^
It is not her supposition that the w
tempest emerging from the bells of w
the bass trombones blows the hair off h!
their heads, though this appears to 0
be tjuite in the line of her argtiment. w
It is unfortunate that she contents ?l
herself with merely announcing her Sl
momentous discovery and fails to j'
specify the details as to in what n
,1,0 niitcifnl remedv is to be ,,
rubbed In, so to spehk, but perhaps tj
she will furnish that information j:
later, when her fell purpose of wrecking
the business of hair restorers h
and of the barbers who have " the k
make your hair grow" is more fully V
developed. e
But while we are waiting for her ^
to work out her plans for consigning n
these estimable^ citizens to hopeless St
bankruptcy. I think I have found a p
speedier and surer way of recon- d
structing the thatches which re- l'<
morseless time has stolen, although
it would bo equally fatal to the finan- a
cial prosperity of the individuals
threatened by Mrs. Holbroik. How- ^
ever, it is true of all the great for- j,
ward sweeps in the path of progress j;
that none was accomplished without i
the sacrifice of somebody or some- g
thing, and the end of whic> she and b
I have in view can be no exception to
the rule. ?
Mv idea is this: You have all 11
heard of the new science of "sugges- ^
tion," or if anybody is ignorant of it j.
he or she must be out of the reach of v
the industrious canvassers for the c
magazines and books that set it u
forth. hs . basic proposition is that c
the person who will set his or her
! mind on any desired achievement ^
will certainly accomplish it. The con- E
| stant reiteration of the suggestion is t,
I all that is necessary for success. ^
"If," says one of the authorities of t:
| the school, "you can hold in mind a ^
nf anv desirable thing d
or eventuality that thing or eventu- 11
ality can be made a fact." c
Now, it" this be true, it must be 3"
manifest to the dullest comprehen- ?
sion that the culture of abundant
; hair comes within the purview of the ^
miracles that may be accomplished ^
by suggestion. All that a halt: man v
has to do is to spend his leisurehours
in resolving that his hair shall d
grow and fancy it restored to the k
luxuriance that was his pricl^ when c
he went courting and played half ^
back on the Frog Hollow foot ball ^
team. That would not be too much
mental exertion even for these days
of the thermometer's ambition to tl
make a record at the top of the ti
tube. It. might be taken up as a p
pastime when the other pleasures of Sl
the summer vacation pall upon the c
-man who has more money than he *
knows what to do with and less hair
.tlian it is worth wnile to buy brush- ^
es and combs for. Kxcept for the a
purposes of the stage the wigmaker's o
art would become obsolete, and as
the departure of the hair is usually t:
a sign of increasing years its renewal t(
would be a step toward re-creating u
the juvenility of this aging world. 0
There are still larger possibilities
ill the scheme. Following the famil- 0
iar axiom that there is strength in
combination, clubs of the hairless si
might he organized to go through t!
the routine of suggestion and the b
malting of mental pictures of the de- 6
sirable. Let a dozen of the bald so- ^
jouruers at a seaside or mountain j!
resort organize "such an association ^
and hold their sessions on the front 1(
porch. Each member should indulge ?
in a fit of stern resolution for himself s;
that he will have a new growth of
hair before he leaves the place, and h
after he has finished exercising iiis c
will power for himself there could be ?
an altruistic exchange of determination,
each man going into the men- j;
tal photography business for all the p
others in turn.
Of course, Samson was ignorant h
of the powers of "suggestion" when II
he fell into the trap of Delilah. Had c
he known of them he might have s
grown a new crop of hair before the
Philistines had a chance to make him ?
prisoner and so saved his eyes and
avoided the painful incident that y
closed his career. But, profiting by r
the ?amson warning, the bald man of f
to-day, when he finds a Delilah seek- q
ing him only for the glory of his hair, r
or, what amounts to the same thing 0
in our time, . the fatness of his bank s
account, may adopt suggestion as the
will process'of driving her away with
a notification that he understands (
her methods .and her purposes. It is t
not. easy to_ imagine the good that 1
may be wrought. by this facile way -*
of traveling the path that leads to i
"any. desirable thing or- eventuality." f

Once at least the great seal has been

c-uld be there today but for a lucky
ccident. It was in 1GSS, when tbe
i-eond James was llecing from Ungual

hougham was desperate when he disovered

hieves promised to lead him to it if he
rould consent to be blindfolded.
With his eyes bandaged he wj^s conucted
to the drawing room, and there
e discovered the seal hidden in a tea
hest. So overjoyed was he at its recovery
that he consented to the young

Many a time has the great seal been
iken to the house of lords and broken

licering of onlooking members. This
as the fate of the seal which fell into

'bree years later the old parliamentary
