That Body of Yours By JAMES W. BARTON, M. D. I Making Hair Grow A COUI'LE ot years ago Ur. B. N. ** Bengston In the Journal of the American Medical Association gave a list ot a number of people on whose bead be bad been able to Induce a new growth of hair. Doctor Bengston was careful to say that these were not cases In which the bair had gradually disappeared, but cases due to illness or shock. Despite this statement he was be selged by thousands of bald-headed people, and by hundreds of others anxious to secure his method and sell It to the world. As a matter of fact Doctor Bengston made no secret of his method. He simply stated that he used the extract from the tiny pituitary gland, no larg er than a pea, which is situated In the floor of the skull. Since the announcement other In vestigators have been using this pitui tary extract on ordinary cases of loss of hair without any real success. In cases where the loss of hair came in patches and finally all the hair was lost, the use of the pituitary extract has been successful In some cases and a failure in others. That other glands may have some thing to do with the growth or loss of hair is quite possible, even probable, but until this has been definitely prov en we'll have to use the methods now recommended by skin and hair special ists to preserve the hair and keep It healthy. The comb and brush should be kept clean and the comb should be such as not to tear the hair or wound the scalp. A good comb has Its teeth smooth and wide apart and their tips are blunt Hair brushes should have their bris tles set wide apart. The brush should be stiff enough to allow one to brush the hair and scalp vigorously without injury. I’rof. 'William A. Pusey, University of Illinois, says that brushing the hair Is of first importance In the toilet of the scalp and hair. It cleans both; it makes the hair smooth and glossy and it stimulates the scalp. The hair should be brushed twice daily; this brushing should be continued for a few minutes, at least—until the hair is smooth and glossy and until there is a pleasant feeling of “life” in the scalp. • • • The Sinuses ALMOST every day the average physician is asked about the si nuses in the face, because sinus trou ble is now quite widespread. As a matter of fact, the average cold in the head Is sinus trouble, but fortunately the cold clears up before any pus is formed, and the openings of the sinuses into the nose are there fore not blocked. What are the sinuses? The sinuses are simply little cavi ties or caverns in the bones of the face which so adjoin the nose that they form the “sounding box” for the voice. As you know the air comes up the wind pipe from the lungs, strikes against the vocal cords and noise or voice occurs. The voice however needs “resonance" or sounding box to give it the proper tone or expression, and this is the purpose of the sinuses. Ton get an Idea of what value the sinuses are to the voice when the si nuses are blocked by the common cold, or if you close your nostrils with your fingers and speak. There Is simply a flat sound without any ring or reso nance to It. There are three sets of sinuses on each side of the face adjoining the nose, opposite the cheek, the eye, and the forehead Just above the eye. The main point to remember about these sinuses Is that they are all con nected with the nose by small open ings, and have the same lining or mucous membrane as the nose. In fact the easiest way to get the idea is to think of the lining of the nose extending into these sinuses, just as the floor of a hall in a home might extend into the rooms adjoining the hall. Now Just as water spilled on the floor of this ball will flow along the floors Into the rooms, so a cold start ing on the lining of the nose extends along this lining into the sinuses, and causes sinusitis. A change of temperature, change from the outdoors to the indoors, the eating of certain foods, the pollen of plants, and various other instances, In flame the mucons membrane or lining of the nose, and the individual devel ops a “cold." Fortunately, In most cases, the cold simply Irritates the lining and In creases a flow ot water. If this water is dammed back, thickens, and organ isms increase within it, pus la formed. This Is really sinusitis. (OoDvrlKht.l—WNU Service.

[Just W\ GRASPING THE CHANCES A countrywoman arrived at a Lon don station, and one of the first things she saw was a man setting off pigeons in a race. For some moments she stood fasci nated as the man opened the crates and liberated the birds. Suddenly an Idea came to her. She rushed up to the man. “I say, mister,” she said, “you might give me one of these birds for my little Johnny before you throw them all away.” Deserved a Discount Magistrate—And why do you think I should be lenient with you?
