New Form of Entertainment.
At a luncheon a short time ago a

hostess asked each one to come in
some way representing her fad; then
the guests were supplied with pencils

DESIGNER OF STATUE OF
LIBERTY DIES AT PARIS
.4au ·m ..
Frederic Auguste Bartholdi died in
Paris Oct. 4 of consumption, aged 70)
years. He was best known in the
United States as the designer of the
statue of Liberty Enlightening the
World, which stands in New York har
bor, and was a gift from the people
of France. The statue is the most
colossal known to history, the legen
dary colossus of Rhodes having been
but 1u5 feet high, as compared with
the 138 feet of the figure of Liberty.
Another of his famous works is the
Lion of Belfort. Another work of
some magnitude he left uncompleted
but the design for his own tomb was
finished a day or two before he was
taken 'vith his last illness.
NEXT RULER OF GERMANY.
Crown Prinoe Said Not to Be of a
Gossip in Paris is busy with the per
sonality of the German crown prince.
He is said to have complained, when
he was at Bonn, that his comrades did
not treat him as the emperor's son;
whereupon the emperor reminded him
that at the university he could make
himself important. only by his attain
ments, not by his rank. He has no
liking for the uniform of a Prussiap
lieutenant, in which he is constantly
photographed; looks like an English
man just escaped from Oxford or
Cambridge; has a pleasing, beardless
face, clear blue eyes, an easy smile
and the hesitating, resigned expres
sion of his mother. At present he
seems to possess neither the philo
sophical spirit of his grandfather, the
Emperor Frederick, nor the warlike
temper of his father. War, indeed,
has no charm for him, and when he
visited the battlefields of AlsacP and
Lorraine and listened to stories of the
great struggles which made the Ger
man empire he manifested a weary
repugnance to the whole business.
MEN WHO RULE JAPAN.
Three Most Prominent in Present
Crisis in the East.
Thre men rule Japan's destinies in
her present war with Russia. The
first is Marquis Oyama, commander
of all the forces in the field-a small,
podgy, pock-marked man, whom no
caricaturist could fail to lampoon as
a frog. Next comes Gen. Baron Ko
dama, the executive brain of the Japa
nese general staff. The third mem
ber of the triumvirate is Gen. Fuku
shima, whose genius has been the con
crete mortar which has cemented into
solid block the rough-hewn material
of Japan's general staff. The three
men are of very n all stature, and
Gen. Fulushiaa is fair for a Japa
rese. Oyama's tremendous success is
due to the fact that he whipped China
on the very fields over which he is
now so diligently pursuing the Rus
sians. It is said that no other com
mander in history has ever been call
ed to operate twice over the same
squares of the map. Oyama knows
Manchuria as well as he knows Toklo.
Edison at Work on Battery.
Thomas A. Edison continues to
spend a large part of his time perfect
ing the storage battery upon which he
has been working for several years.
The delegates to the international
electrical congress who paid a visit
to Mr. Edison in New Jersey last
week found him very optimistic as
to the future of this battery. When
it was first developed it had the usual
mechanical defects of a new inven
tion and Mr. Edison has been spend
ing much time in his factory overcom
ing these defects. The engineers who
saw him last week say that the Edi
son storage battery is now perfected
and that it will not be long before
it is put oh the market.
Signatures of English Clergy.
In all his official correspondence the
archbishop of Canterbury signs him
self "Randall Cantuar," the latter
word being an abbreviation of "C~an
tuaria," the ancient name of Canter
bury. The archbishop of York's sig
nature is "Willelm: Ebor." Ebor
(Eboracum) is the ancient name of
York. When bishop of Winchester
Dr. Davidson signed himself "Randall
Winton." Winton being the old name
of Winchester. The rule about these
signatures is to follow the Christian
name or initial or names or initials
with the original name of the bishop

LOOk FOR IMMENSE THRONG.
Christian Church to Hold Conventior
at St. Louis Oct. 13 to 20.
The World's Fair is bringing to St
Louis the greatest religious conven
tion ever held by any church or de
nomination. This will cover the week
of Oct. 13-20, and anywhere from 20,.
000 delegates upwards are expected
from every state in the Union, Can.
ada, Mexico, and abroad. The meet
ings will be held in the old Exposition
building and the Coliseum, where the
Democratic national convention as
sembled. A chorus of 1,0(10 voices
has been in training for some months
to lead the music, and some of the
best evangelistic Aingers of the Christ
ian church, which is one of the most
aggressive bodies in evangelistic
work, are expected to take part. Oct.
20 will be "Disciples of Christ Day"
at the World's Fair. The Christian
church was the first denomination to
erect a building of its own on the
fair grounds, and has a very admir
able exhibit representing its ramified
work in this country and abroad.
Only one other denomination has at
tempted anything of this kind. Presi
dent Francis will address the gather.
ing of delegates at Festival hall, over
which Dr. James H. Garrison of the
Christian Evangelist, will preside, and
where Dr. F. D. Power of Washington,
who was President Garfield's pastor,
will be the chief speaker. The con
vention is composed of the Christian
Women's Board of Missions, the For
eign Christian Missionary society, the
American Christian Missionary siciety,
the Board of Church Extension, the
Evangelization society, the Benevolent
society, and the Board of Ministerial
Relief. At Cincinnati five years ago,
about 10,000 people attended the great
communion service. Owing to the at
tractions of the World's Fair draw
ing so many people to St. Louis, it is
expected that even Cincinnati's rec
ord, which is the greatest in the
world, will be superseded by the great
communion service to be held in St.
Always Comes Home to Vote.
Dr. James F. Love, a native of Phil
adelphia, has just returned to that
city from Egypt, where he has resided
for fifteen years. He comes almost
solely to cast his vote at the coming
election. Dr. Love went abroad near
ly fifteen years ago and found a profit
able field for the practice of his pro
fQssion of dentistry. He attained
prominence on the continent and
while on a visit to Egypt was induced
to settle in Cairo, having been ap
pointed dentist to the khedive. But
he never gave up his American citi
zenship or his residence in Philadel
phia. So every presidential election
since his first trip abroad be has re
turned to the United States to. cast
his vote. In order to do this Dr. Love
has retained his voting residence in

to us. '11,is nuy tie hecautse those who
are both without money and without
hair a!:!h the le) t of their condition,
while thoI:' who have the money and
lack tie locks can supply the latter.
"''The ra:test d(l:anlld is for white
and gray Lhair. The pure white is so
rare that it Irin s quite fabulous
prices. By lllaehil:g it is easy enough
to have a full supply, but when this
is contrastedl with the real article the
dlifference is startli'ng. The ma~ifac
ture(i article is a rinuarkalbly good Im
itation, hut its inferiority, what is
called 'the dead look,' is as apparent
as the difference between artificial and
sun light. Now, as the artificial real
ly costs a good deal of money, it is to
be presumed that the would-be pur
chasers must w\ant the best, and, as
they move in social circles wuere their
acquaintances are apt to be of their
own age and similarly well fixed as to
money, the chances are large that they
will be satisfied with nothing but the
real thing. People who wear 'false
hair,' a nmisnomer, are particularly sen
sitive about it, and don't want to run
the risk of contrast b)etween the genu
ine and the artificial.
"For these reasons the real white
hair has a standard value of $25 per
ounce, although through the scarcity
of the supply, when there is any large
order, like one for a full head of fine
hair, the price jumps to sums that are
staggering. In this coiinectio I'll tell
of one of the tragedies I have men
tioned as connected with the trade.
The story is perfectly true, but to
give the names would be an injustice.
As I did the hair cutting myself, I
know exactly what happened.
"There was a very old woman out in
New Jersey. ,he always had been in
comfortable circumstances, but certain
securities ceased paying dividends
through a reorganization, and at the
same time several of her houses that
had paid comfortable rentals were va
cant. She was without ready cash,
and worried about the education of her
orphan granddaughter of fourteen.
"One day a friend called, to Lind the
old woman confined to her room. She
had let down her long, abundant and
perfectly white hair, which still
reached below her knees when she was
standing. The visitor, who, on more
than one occasion had been at our shop
to buy switches, had learned of the
enormous value of white hair, and re
piembered the $23 an ounce price,
which she had heard quoted as the
manufacturer's price to the retailer.
To cheer up her friend she mentioned
what she had heard, and added that
she believed her splendid hair would
bring twice that sum for each ounce.
"The old woman was deeply inter
ested at once, as, according to her cal
=ulation, this would be a sum of money
which would aid materially in the ed
ucation of her granddaughter. She
wrote to us telling of the length of her
hiair, and of the price she had been told
it would bring. As it happened at the
time. we lrad two orders for real white
hair, and had searched in vain for the
propar length and quality.
SACRIFICED HER SNOWY LOCKS.
"I wrote that I would come to see
her on the following day. In the
meantime, as I learned later, she sent
for her physician. He had been a
friend and comrade of her son. She
told him of her purpose. Of course,
he tried to dissuade her, and linding
that useless, consented to tell the girl
that her grandmother's hair must be
cut off, as it was too great a burden
for her to bear in her enfeebled con
"There were tears, entreaties and
protests on the part of the young girl,
but the old grandmother managed to
persuade her that it must be. I came
the next day. The doctor was there-
a stern-faced, middle-aged man, who
scowled at me. I was really very un
comfortable. The girl. who could not
witness the cutting of her grandmoth
er's 'crowning glory.' had gone away to
weep alone. The old woman was sit
ting up in her bed running her flgers
through the beautiful white waves of
her hair that streamed off to the car.
"I had never seen such a head of
hair. My business heart jumped with
greed, and then, as she looked up at
me with her angel's face and her great
big pitiful eyes, the greed was gone
and I started crying. It was very un

woman unhappy, although I sometimes
think that I should write her the truth.
It wioul hurt her. of course, but then
s he would realize how great was the
love of her grandmother.
MIXING TO GET THE GRAY.
"N'xt in value to the real white hair
is real gray hair, and this is due chief.
ly to the fact that there are so many
degrees of grayness. When a hair.
dresser is in need of a switch of gray
hair he forwards a sample to the man
ufacturer, who matches it by ming.
lihug strands of white hair with the
necestary strands of gray. This might
seem an exceedingly difficult thing
to do, as It is said that the hairs of
the head cannot be counted, except on
heads that are almost bald.
"But it is not such a very difficult
process. A handful of white and a
handful of gray hair of various degrees
of grayness are drawn across upturned
spikes, the different varieties being
added until the required shade is
"There are shades of red, or auburn,,
and of bronze black that are exceed
ingly ditticult to get, but none of these
has anything like the market value of
the white or even the gray hair. Most
of the hair that we sell comes from
itussia, Scandinavia, Italy, Germany,
Spain and !France, and the cheaper
sorts from Japan, China and South
America. It is only once in a great
while that there is any American hair
for sale, because the Americans as a
people are more prosperous and don't
have to sall their locks.
"Much of the hair that comes to the
manufacturers is in the form Of 'comb.
ings,' a small saving which the Amer.
ican women, even of the poorer classes,
have not realized have a value. These
'combings' are sterilized and treated
with antiseptics after they have been
carefully run over stationary combs
or spikes until they are in order. All
this is done by machinery that separ.
ates, through the fine teeth, what is
known as the 'root' and the 'pointr
hair. Another machine gathers the
strands into their classifications, ao
cording to length.
DYEING AND BLEACHING.
"Of course, human hair has to be
dyed to suit the prevailing fashion. It
is easy to dye hair that has been shorn,
as there Is no danger that the dye
will run, because the hair is held in
a horizontal position. This is almost
impossible in the case of dyeing the
hair on the head. It is a mistake to
speak of dyeing hair to a lighter color.
Hiair can be dyed only to a darker
shade-which makes the raven and
bronze black valuable. Of course, you
can bleach hair. We all know the 'per
"One large source of hair getting is
gone. There is a large falling off in
the supply from Brittany, where we
used to send agents. It was not at all
uncommon in the old ,days for girls to
sell their splendid tresses that they
might purchase their werding trous
seau, aid in the furnishing of the fu
ture home, and thereby hasten the
marriage ceremony. Even the wives
of well-to-do farmers would barter
their locks for prized trinkets.
"Then the tricksters, with false Jew
els and bogus satins, appeared. They
killed the goose that laid the golden
egg, and in many instances came near
getting killed themselves. The young
men and the old men grew weary of
shock-haired women who had little to
show for the sacrifice of their good
looks. It became customary, as soon
as the hair agent set up his tent at a
fair. to topple it over on him. Hsla
goods were scattered to the winds, and
then he would be so beaten that he was
glad to escape with his life to seek
some new, less dangerous, and less pro
"The manufacturers easily might Im
port tons of hair from South America,
Japan and China, and they do import
a good deal, but it is Eo inferior in
length and chieily because of its coarse
ness that it can be used rarely in the
manufacture of switches. Efforts to
soften it have proved unavailing, and
the chance of curling it remains for
the age of the airshin and other re
markable inventions."-New York
