A WONDERFUL GROWTH.
(Mih Details of Haaasua. Hals' as
KtmM by -Ktereaeca.
A study of the hair will afford norel
ty to many. It li bo common a sub
stance, and exhibit such a meager In
formation to the unaided vision, that
few people suspect It to be worthy of
prolonged attention. Yet ench hair of
the human body Is a wonderful growth,
foil of curious details.
The hairs of nnlmals differ so con
alderably, one from the other, that a
pmctlced inlcroscoplst can determine,
upon viewing n slnglo hair handed to
him for Inspection, from what crea
ttiro It had been plucked. The hair
of tho human specimen sprouts from
a tiny pit formed In tho skin. Its so-
called root Is really a greasy bulb, 00
cupying me caviiy reierreu 10, hko
an egg-shaped ball of fat, from which
arises a tube with a sharp and well
defined shell, as It were, terminating at
Its utmost extremity In a point. This
tube Is filled for the greater part of its
length with a pulpy matter, which may
bo compared with pith In plant stnlks,
although, scientifically regarded, It Is
of a totally different nature. The va
ried color of hair Is due to Interior de
posits In tho form of Invisible grains
of pigment, or natural paint, and It Is
through the loss of this matter that
hair becomes gray, In which case tho
hair may be likened to a semi-transparent,
A very marvolous clrcumstanco In
connection with human hair lies In the
fact that Its outer surface Is not
smooth, as generally supposed. It Is
actually completely covered with In
credibly minute scales In n similar
manner to tho wfngs of butterflies and
tho bodies of fishes that Is to soy,
these lnvlslblo slabs overlie one an
other precisely as do the tiles of a
bouse. This statement may be veri
fied readily by detaching n hair from
a lady's head by preference and
whllo holding the opposite ends In both
hands, so that It becomes stretched and
taut, dragging It across tho tender sur
face of ono's lips. When drawn In tho
direction In which tho scales Ho tho
hair feels qulto smooth; but If moved
In tho oppbslto direction 11 distinctly
notlceablo rasping 1b felt ns the edges
of tho scnlcH hitch against tho flesh, i

"Insurnuco adjusters nro about as
clever aud 'smooth' as any class of men
to bo found," said an old-time merchant
tho other day. "Their logic Is always
oiled and ready to run without tho
least friction. Once, however, ono of
tho tribe got slipped up on. Ills logic
got sidetracked on n dcrnllliiK twitch.
I was running a country storo which'
was destroyed by Arc. Tho adjuster
came along and then cnuio tho brittle to
get a settlement satisfactory to both
aides. We were going over tho Items
burned In the bnscment. 'Now, what
lso was there?' asked tho adjuster.
" There were twenty bushels of po
tatoes which I pnld 29 cents a bushel
for, but at tho time they were worth
80 cents a bushel.'
'"Hold on,' said the Insurance man.
'We're only paying you for what you
lost No Inflated values go. They cost
you 8. What elso?'
"There were four barrels of apples
which had rotted on my bands and I
was going to throw out that day. Tho
Are prevented It They wercn'f worth
a cent but they cost me $3 a barrel.'
'Tho adjuster snw be was caught
Without batting an eye, ho wrote, 'Four
barrels of apples at $3 a barrel, 112.
What elso?' "Kansas City Times.

aro only your friends so long as you
are In shape to do them favors. Get
Into trouble and many will verbally
sympathlzo with you, but only a few
will show their friendship In a sub
stantial manner. If a man Is not a
true friend, there Is very little real
nobility In his makeup. The more we
sco of some men, the rooro wo think
of dogs,' as Madame de Stacl said."

to his better half, "I proposed to the
cook the other day."
"Ob, John, how sweet and thought
ful of you 1" she exclaimed, delightful

"One has very few friends In this
life," said the misanthrope,
"Yes," answered Miss Cayenne. "I
suppose that Is one reason why a friend
Is so likely to be overworked." Wash
