The spectacle of a man but 39 year
of ace and with hair, beard and imia
tachs whits as the hirsute of an octo
genarian and even whiter than mri, l
an unusual one, but auch greeted Chief
Drputy Cotiney Clerk Arthur C. Han
croft at the registration counter this
morning and expressed a desire to reg

lie gave hli name a 11. Maaoratsky,
aid he waa born In Kleff, RushIo, and
waa a merchant by occupation, with
address at 10Mi North Third street.
Thla waa nothing unusual, nor was the
sight of man with white hair and
beard one to excite Interest, but when
In answer to a stereotyped, question,
"age V the applicant replied that he
waa 89, the genial chief deputy nearly
fell under the counter. However, Mr,
Muxoratsky took an oath to that effect,
and to that fact the records now bear
witness.' - J-
A few other questions of a personal
nature, but having nothing to do with
teglstratlon, elicited the surprising fact
that this old-young man'a hair turned
white in a single day. It was believed
to be due "to fright, he said. ' He was
badly frightened once about five years
ago, and shortly after that his hair be
came a me anven snow in one aay.
No. he said, he had not been sick at
the time, and the only explanation ever
effcred hlin by any one who pretended
to know, waa that the hair lost Ita
color through the mysterious influence
of extreme fright. Another surprising
thing In connection with Mr. Maxor
atnky's case is that before thla mystic
change wa wrought his hair waa
bluck. ' ' ,

the strange phenomenon of hair losing
