A Few Facts Which May Result In Wean
Ins: Them from tho Practice.
TThe most expensive is the silver white.
which is in great demand and very dif
ficult to find. Hair of the ordinary
shades is obtained in two ways. The
tetter and more expensive kind is cut
directly from the heads of peasant
'women, who sell their silken tresses
sometimes for a mere song and some
limes for a fair price, according as
' they learned wisdom. Kvery year the
whole territory of France is traveled
over by men whose business it is to
persuade village maidens, their mothers
and their aunts to part with their hair
for financial considerations. The busy

A STRANGE BUILDING LEGEND.
Curious Practice In VOgruo Among Bul
Nine master masons who were en-,
gaged in building a citadel in the time
of the Voivoid Neagoe, found on return
ing to their work each morning that
the portion of the wall which they had
completed the day before had fallen to
pieces during the night and was lying
in a heap of ruins in the ditch. Manol
of Curtea, the head mason, informed
his comrades one morning that a voice
from Heaven . had warned him in his
sleep the night before that their labors
would continue to come to naught un
less they all swore on that very morn
ing to immure in the structure the first
woman, be it wife, mother, daughter or
sister, who should arrive with 'the
morning meal of one or either of them.
They all took the oath, and the last
had hardly been sworn when Hanoi's
own wife appeared, carrying her hus
band's breakfast. The oath was kept,
and the woman, known in the legend
as "Flora of the Fields," was murdered
and her blood and flesh incorporated
with the wall of masonry. A . curious
practice of the Bulgarian masons (the
above scene is laid in Bulgaria), which
survives to this day, testifies to the vital'
ity of the legend. To insure the solid
ity of the houses they build they meas

person who passes after the digging of

EUROPE'S LABOR LAWS. .
Daily and WeeEdy
barrels collect every day in the city of
Varis alone at least a hundred pounds (
of hair, which some hundreds of thou
sands of women have -combed out of
their heads during the preceding
twenty-four hours. This hair, all
mixed together and soiled, one would
think, beyond redemption, is sold to
hair cleaners at from a dollar to a
dollar and a half a pound, which shows
simply that the fair sex in one city
alone throws away annually about
sixty thousand dollars' worth of hair,
for which they afterward pay and it is
the same hair, mind considerably over
two hundred thousand dollars.
Tho cleaniDg of this refuse hair is an
operation which requires careful atten
tion. After the hair has been freed
from the dirt and dust and mud and
other unpleasant things with which
it has come in contact in gutters
and slop buckets it is rubbed with saw
dust until it shines once more with its
pristino gloss and then the process of
sorting is begun. In the first place,
according to the Baltimore Herald,
skillful hands fix the individual hairs
in frames, with the roots all pointing
the same way, and then they are ar
ranged according to color. Finally,
when a sufficient number of hairs of
one color have been obtained nor is
"this number so immense as is generally
supposed they are made 'into the
beautiful braids which are shown so
seductively in the windows of the
fashionable coiffeurs. If, as the book
says, wisdom goes with the hair, she
who places on her head one of those
conglomerate braids might be said to
. receive a portion of the wisdom of hun
dreds of thousands of other women who
had worn those hairs before.
What Some Nations Have Done to Pro
tect the Working Classes.
A great trades-union congress, com
posed of delegates from all tho labor
Drffamzations in Great Britain, met at
Liverpool on tho 1st of September, It
was composed of five hundred delegates,
including ten women, and represented
most of the large trades of the Kingdom.
The principal act of tho congress was
to p3 a resolution in favor cf reduc
ing the time of laboring to eight hours
a day and of making eight hours a day's
labor by act of Parliament. This was
not passed, however, without a good.

ONE CIGARETTE STUB.
Ruin of a Ynut Crazing Ground and Star
vation to Thousands of Animals.
A number of hunters in the Gros
Ventre range, Wyo., one day in August,
1889, were smoking as they rode along.
One carelessly cast his cigarette stub on
the grass beside the trail. Usually it
would have died there and no harm
come from it, but a breeze was blowing
that fanned it till a dry blade of grass
flamed up. The hunters had just passed
around a bend and did not see the
flame. An hour later a fire that threat
ened all the grass south of the Gros
Ventre river was raging and the few
settlers there were riding from ranches
even thirty miles away to save the
range their cattle needed. One man
followed and brought back the hunters
and for the rest of the day more than a
score of men with horses dragging
"bundles of green brush galloped up and
down to confine the flames to the can
yons and mountains east of the valley.
They succeeded, and the ranchers worn
out rode home to rest. , Some hundreds
of square miles of mountain sides and
the bottom lands in the canyons were
Later came winter and the deep snow
common to that country. With the
enow came herds of elk rom the moun
tain tops to feed in the thickets along
the brooks between the mountains. It
was their regular practice, and they
bad always lived therein peace the
winter through, for the settlers killed
only what were needed for food. . But
this winter, instead of nourishing
grasses and twigs, . the Chautauquan
says, the unfortunate animals found
only charred stubs and blackened sods.
Goaded by their hunger they came out
on the plains and about the ranches of
the settlers. At first they fled at the
of some of the older delegates
Tho meeting of this congress and tho
?reat strikes which are frequently tak
ing place in almost every civilized
country and region render the subject
af what laws have been passed by the
several nations regulating labor es
pecially interesting at this time, says
tho Youth's Companion.
Thus far. no European nation has
passed a law limiting tho time of the
labor of adult male working-men. Such
measures as have been passed relate for
tho most part to tho protection and lim
itation of the labor of women and chil
dren, and the greater part of these
measures have become law within the
past fifteen years.
For instance, by a statute passed by
tbe British Parliament in 1878, women,
and children between fourteen and
?ighteen years of age, who are engaged
in the textile factories are allowed to
work only ten hours a day. Children
under fourteen years can work only six
hours a day. In other industries tho re
snectivo neriods of labor are increased
jver the figures stated by half an hour.
Moreover, no child under ten years of
age is permitted to work in an English
factory at all, and all night work is for
bidden to women, young girls and children.
