A famous London hairdresser re ported as Kayln that those who fol- low this authiuated jaethod are brush- inz nil this o'autr of their crowns of lory. If n head of hair which has been so treated happens to be beauilful It Is in H!te of the brusaimr. not be- enus, of it. The reason assigned for this dictum Is that tin new hairs are easily destroyed, and aro therefore worn out by stiff brushing. The roots, trying to make up for this destruction, nre forced Into abnormal growth, until their life force is exhausted, and bald ness Is the delightful result. THE CIIArERON'S DECLINE. Chaperouaze, even in conservative England, has loosened Its trammels and the debutante of to-day is in for a much better time than her predecessor of tea or twelve years azo. "Then there were hard and fast rules," says a genial matron, "which the openinz years of this century have seen dis- carded. Of course, there is a certain amount of it still and occasions when it is imperative, but boy and girl dauces, which have become an institu- tion, and dinner party dances where only young men and maidens are in- vited. nnd the hostess is the only chaperon, show how society in England has modified its views with regard to the necessity for the chaperon.' TIIE IIATLESS GIRL. "The dean of Chicago University has pronounced against the'hatless girl.' " said a woman at the seashore the other day. "It is exceedingly difficult to see just "where the summer maiden vexes propriety by her pleasant habit of go- ing hatless on a warm evening, or why, when she carries a parasol or travels along country lanes or village streets in a covered phaeton on a summer's aay, it is aiso necessary to nunieu nor neaa witu a nar. custom is a curious thing. A woman is urgently besought to remove her hat in the theatre, and reviled for not doing so; and she may go to nans witu a wisp ot lace over nor coiffure, or sit hatless in her own yard. liut the air of the street suddenly ren- ders the hatless girl improper. No women in the world have been so chained to the hat as those of Amer ica. Women of the Southern races have always been independent of a head covering when they chose, and summer heat throughout the United States, though not as long continued, Is as torrid as in countries nearer the equator. Furthermore, no hat is pret tier than a pretty head of hair, and nothing improves the latter more than sun and air." Boston Transcript. JEWEL CASES OF SKIN. Exquisite jewel boxes and porte- monnale are made of sharkskin that has been bleached to extraordinary whiteness and glistens like Hint or granite on which the sun is shining. Only lately, says the New York Sun, has the artist craftsmen discovered the secret of doing this, and therefore these articles come high. A jewel box of the rich white sub stance will have the cover and sides inlaid with the scales of the bone pike, the Florida fish which supplies a ma terial preferred for inlaying mother-of- pearl. The bone pike's scales bear quaint markings, not unlike Chinese characters. They are put on In over lapping sections, and being pale brown and lustreless, are an interesting foil to the highly polished sharkskin. . Many skins are being experimented with to produce light pearl or cream- tinted leathers of requisite strength and quality. The sea lion's skin is used for costly articles and gold-bound curio baskets. All the tanning, rub- bing and polishing ever resorted to fail to obliterate those curious wavy lines on the surface of the sea lion's siiin, causeu uy me animal s wigging around over the Ice. Hence, it is stamped forever with an Intrinsic dec- oi.iuuu. nowever new tne article, it always presents the aspect of an an tique because of these odd markings Devices of lizard skin are fitted up with real silver mountings and set off with n topaz or a sapphire unobtrusive ly introduced. The lizard skins nre often used in their natural hues, but again are dyed black or dark brown for more practical purposes. In ali oases they are beautifully marked and shad- ed. The coloring of beetles and of the chameleon are imitated in larger skins nnd utilized for very handsome cases for necklaces nnd caskets for hair ornaments.
