I the woman with the high,
forehead to wear the hair
pompadour because the hair
is not rolled back from

pulled down to hide the skin. The pom
padour that stands straight up from the
line where the hair grows is out of fash
ion. When the hair is parted at the side
there is a long, sweeping curve, down
over the left temple, then it is rolled
back sharply at the ear. A point of tho
pompadour brought down over the fore
head in front is fashionable.

bangs are inseparable. This is the mod

dip of the back chignon should not pass
much beyond the ear. When it falls too
low it becomes disfiguring by enlarging
the size of the head and giving one a
top-heavy look. Pretty little Malibran

The fashion of dressing the hair well
at the back and even low on the nape
has come in to stay, and in consequence
nine-tenths of the women are studying
as to how much false hair is needed to
achieve the prevailing mode.
The new yet old mode of arranging the
hair low on the neck is gradually gaining
favor, especially among young women.
First there is the soft pull all around the
head, the knot a little below the center
of the back of the head, and the little
bunch of curls which fall from the cen
ter of the knot. In most instances, no
doubt, the curls will be purchased and
pinned in, so the fashion is a good one
for the hair dealers.
In making the popular pompadour coif
fure the hair is waved around the back
of the head, then it is fastened to the
crown. A pompadour is placed in front
and dressed in three parts and fastened
and shaped by side combs with a few
curls falling on the face. Added to the
back hair is a wavy switch about twenty
two inches long and curly at the ends.
In putting the waves into the sides, the
hairdressers rull out the puff just at the
temples to make the head very wide, but
over the ears the hair is tightened a Uttle,
leaving the widest portion at the temples.
Be sure to cover the upper lobe of the ear
in dressing the hair, for seldom does tho
hair grow pretty here.
The wave Js one of the most useful fea
tures of the coiffure, for it makes the
hair look thicker and it sort of dresses up
the head and softens the high straignt
lines which appear at the back and Ihe
sides of heads that haye no natural curl.
Particularly is this true of the back of
the neck, where the hair so seldom grows
By taking these loose and lower hairs
and waving them one gets charmingly
pretty results. Do not cut tbe hair, but
wave It and pull it down, and thus make
a sort of puff as though the hair were
done loosely up.
The science of hair-waving is one that
must be carefully studied, for the head,
is made or marred by the way i» which it
is Waved. The methodical studied wave
has no place in the new coiffure of tne
season, for it is entirely too stiff, even the
revival periods, and big loose puff with its
Another Scientific Theory to Explain the Puzzling Phenomenon of Sex Ebolhed by Physicians
-1 I NOTHBR eminent physician
A has offered an explanation

This physician is Dr. A.

known and greatly respected in Belgium.
His theory has attracted widespread at

ranged are one of the signs of the gentle
woman. This year the popular coiffure is
simpler and prettier than it has been for
some time. Gradually the pompadour has
gone through a series of evolutions that
have brought it into a state of grace. The
abominable rat has crawled away, no one
knows whither, the frouzled side puffs
have taken wings ana tne soft front

Nature, the leading English scientific
paper, makes a very interesting comment
on Dr. "Van Lint*s theory:
"Dr. Van Lint has convinced himself
of the validity of a somewhat extraor
dinary new theory as to the determina
tion of sex. If it is true, it should give
pause to virile fathers who wish to have
sons, for unless they can secure still more
vigorous mates, they are sure to have
daughters only. The theory Is that the
offspring follow the sex of the weaker

For some time the hanging curl has
been hanging in a tentative sort of way

Some portrait painters always 'jiersuade

parent, though, as we read on, this turns
out to mean the parent whose available
germ cells are relatively less vigorous.

As to the question of dressing the hair

have elected to do as them please in hair
dressing. Some adopt ono way, some
the other, and many who dress the hair
high in the daytime prefer the low
coiffure in the evening, and vice versa.
slsts on replacing. If we had space at
our disposal we should be delighted to
disagree with the ingenious author in re
gard to the detailed facts, but it would
be of little avail, since we cannot admit
his postulates. The moral of the book
seems .good—that the strong man wh«
wishes to have sons must find a stilt
stronger mate; but it also follows, un
fortunately, that the weak woman who
wtehes to have daughters has no resource
but to find a still weaker husband.'*
