regular rate is 2 on iron vessels, mak

per cent. If thero should be no war the
extra 1 per cent, is clear gain to the in

cargo owner. Bat if England and Russia

very cheap insurance.

The worst of it is that the are strictly
true. The extreme of it is that a good

Credit is a necessary element in busi
ness life, it U founded on that natural
confidence that is a part of human na
ture, and though a man's confidence be
misplaced and he be taken in again and
again yet he hates to give up his abiding
faith in humans like himself, and so
goes ahead trusting those whom his bet
ter judgment tells him will swindle him
at tho last.
This is one grave cause of financial
difficulties in Astoria. It is so easy to
get credit that the facility is grossly
abased. Everv spring flock a crowd of
adventurers here. They haven't got
anything but they start "in business."
Everything they do is done on credit;
tho placa is fitted up on credit, the stock
is bought on credit, the provisions they
cat arc got on credit, the clothes they
wear are bought on credit all this credit,
all this taking big chances is done by
Astoria merchants and men who are with
us the year round. Presently come3 a sher
iffs sale, or an attachment, or an" assign
ment," or a turning over or uuder some
way. One or two that are posted get in
and realize "enough to pay my bill;" the
rest stand around and swear and say just
what they think and are.snapped up tho
same way the month after.
Credit is too easily procured; there is
not enough judgment used in deciding
whether a man shall be given, credit or
not. There is a certain class of patron
age that a business man cannot afford.
He'd better, a sood deal, keep his goads
on his shelves than hand them oyer to a
man whoso name isn't worth writing on
tho debit side of his ledger, and who
never intended to pay for them. This is
making brioks.without straw and is one
of the things that is hurting Astoria. It
doesn't inako any difference whether
it is a peanut stand or a canuery,.the
thing is repeated right along and every
time it is the hard working man that
trie1 to pay his debts that is cinched.
Tho other fellow doesn't care: he never
expected to pay and isn't at all surprised
when ho breaks up or breaks down and
coolly tells his creditor that he can't pay
One of the unfortunate results of this
is to destroy confidence, to make men
suspicious of each other and to perma
nently iujuro that necessan mutual
trust without which no business commu
nity can flourish.
Another unfortunate result h beat ex
emplified by a enso that recently came
under our bbstrvation. A certnin pro
fessional man was employed to psrform
service that is usually considered well
paid at $:. His bill was $G3. Tho man
paid the bill but objected to the charge.
"Oh. well,"' wa3 tho answer, "you can af
ford it; and I lose so much on others that
I've got to charge some one or Fd havo
nothing." With no xnoro than passing
allusion to hi? lack of judgment in "giv
ing tho business away" it may be said
that such a practice of overcharging in
order to play even shows a total lack of
business principle and can be justified
on no grounds compatible wilh honesty.
People won't keen their mouths shut:
they will talk and it doesn't take long
for a little matter like that to get around,
and the story never loses anything in the
And this brings us to the last part of
our bricks without straw. Did you ever
know a man who mado a good thing of
it by overcharging and "failing in busi
ness" and abusing the confidence of oth
ers and making it in general harder for
his mora honestly disposed business
brethren to get on? Tho successes of those
who uro in that ticklish field aro to those
who aro in dishonor as one thousand to
one. The gougo business doesn't win,
for though temporarily successful, it is
like a lie; the chief difference between a
Iio and truth is that a lie has no future in
it; and so it is with those who make a
lio of their business.
The less of that kind of "business" that
we have touched on the better for
tho community. Tho remedy for it
lies in the hands of the business
men of tho place. The drain on the ac
tual business resources of the city is an
annual heavy one, and would seriously
injure the commercial prosperity of a
much larger city than ours. However
unpleasant the task, it is a public duty
to call attention to something which is
of injury to our uneiicial interests, and
which can have but one result. Every
man doing business in the place will
readily see the utter folly of allowing the
credit system to be so grossly abused as
it has been in every department of busi
ness, and in seasons like the present it
will bo even more readily seen than it
would were business better.

Hpad-Covcrlnc The Xnrabrr of Hair,
on a Human Head Vcrlatlon
Vcrontinc to Color.
In a lecture delivered in Edinburgh
tho other day Prof. Canninghnm of tho
Dublin university gave some interesting
information obout human hair. Ho be
gan by saying that over 200,000 pounds
of such hair were brought to Paris alouo
each year, and that white hair costs as
much as ."5 a single ounce. Then he
stated that if his hearers would examine
the head of a child they would find that
tho hairs were arranged in vortices, and
that these yortices had their center on
the crown, the hairs sweeping around
this canter, in the direction of from
right to left. The number of hairs which
were implanted on the scalp varied, and
was in a great measure determined by
the size of the diameter of tho individual
hair shafts. Tho larger the hair shaft
the smaller would be the nunibsr of the3e
implanted on a given area, L'ae diame
ter of tho uairs was very vanuoie, auu
the chief factors which determined these
variations were age, sex, color of tho hair,
and above all nice. Uniformity of diam
eter of the hairs of the head never oc
curred in the same individual; they would
find haira on tho same head wuica were
at least five or six times coarser than the
The average diameter of a human hair
taken from the head has been calculated
by. Sir Erasmus Wilson to be tho one
four-hundredth part of an inch; or. in
other words, if they were to place four
hundred hairs side by side, they would
find them covering an area of about one
inch. They were in the habit of looking
noon man as a coarser animal than
woman, but this was not the case in every
particular, because they found that fe
male hair was, as a rule coarser than tbet
of man, and this too in spite of the f re
nuent cuttings to which the male hair
wns subjected. Speaking of the effect of J
coloration, it was a lact tuat tue color ot
the hairs affected its diameter wery much
as they were in tho habit, popularly, of
looking upon it. Chestnut hair and flax
en hair were the finest: light brown hair
and, black hair were the coanet and
dark brown hair and red hair held an in
termediate position in this respect. ;
Several observers had attempted th
tedious task of counting tho number of j
hairs upon the head. According to Er- J
