Ilavlnii hiHt night heard thut Joslah
Wlllurd hud rat off hi hair (a Terr
full head of hair) and put on a Wlgg,
I went to III in this morning. Told bid
Mother what I cnine about, and she
called him. I enquired of him what
Extremity hud forced hlra to put off
hl own hnlr, and put on a WlggT lie
answered, none at till. Hut mild that
bla hulr won straight, and that It
parted behind. Seem'd to argue that
men ml KM aa well ahave their hair off
their head, aa off their face. I an
swered . . . God aeetns to hare or
dained our Hulr aa a Teat to aee
whether we can bring our minds to be
contented at his finding", or whether
we would he our own Carvers, Lords,
and come no more to him. . . Pray'd
him to read the Tenth Chapter of the
Third Book of Colvln's Institution.
. . . Told blm that It was condemned
by a Meeting of Ministers at North
ampton In Mr. Stoddard's house when
the said Joslah was there. ... He
seem'd to say would leave off bla
Wlgg when his hair was grown. I
pake to bis father of It a day or two
after; be thanked me that bad dis
coursed bis Ron, and told me that
when bis balr waa grown to cover bis
ears be promised to leave off bla
Wlgg. If he bud known of It, would
have forbidden blm. Ilia Mother
beard him talk of It; but was afraid
positively to forbid blm lest he should
do It, and so be more faulty From
Judge Sewull's Diary (quoted In "The
Heart of the Puritans').
DENIED EQUALITY OF SEXES
Men In 1813 Had Decided Views ae to
Woman'a Intellect and Her
' Sphere of Duty.
There lies on the desk a book pub
lished and sold by Moses Thomas,
Philadelphia, bearing the date of 1813,
which makes It one bupdred and five
years old. There are many strange
thlnga In that book, which contains
"Selections From Foreign Reviews and
Muguzlnes," all of which Is claimed to
be "the best thought of the ablest men
of the age." There Is an essay at
tacking a French authoress who was
clulmlng an equality of Intellect of the
two sexes. The reviewer remarks:
"Upon the whole, we do not think that
little learning Is always a dangerous
thing In a lady, so long as It has ref
erence to her condition of life and the
sphere of ber duties. .
That la as fur as the world had got
at that time In the education of wom
en. About seventy years afterward,
when a woman became aenlor wrangler
at Oxford, which la the highest honor
in mathematics, there began ft change
of opinion concerning the quality of
It wus maintained la the entire
period by these "ablest men of the
age," thut the "female Intellect" waa
entirely Inferior to that of men, and
that her physical structure made It
Impossible for her to comprehend the
great questtona, such as that of war.
Since then a woman baa written the
greatest war hymn of the woriL St
Nerve and Eye 8traln.
Many nervous as well as other dis
eases are caused by Incorrect Illumin
ation. The eye la a subject of prime
consideration In connection with our
health and happiness. Rye fatigue
spoils the disposition; as that Is one
of the conditions given for Inefficient
work, we find here again a reduction
In efficiency nnd a cause for more loss
of the workman's time. The first loss
waa mechanical, tUe second Is phys
ical ; both, when reduced to a dollar-
and-cents basis, show a large percent
age over the cost of lighting that
would he required to eliminate them.
As Judgment Is dependent upon per
ception, and perception upon the sight,
then the Inhorpr, to be efficient, must
be able to see fine details and small
objects at close ranee with sharpness
and distinction, to distinguish objects
at a distance with, accuracy, and to
have clear perception of all objects In
the Intermediate space.
Famous Forth, Bridge.
Sir John Fowler and Sir Benjamin
Baker, both Englishmen, were the en
gineers who deirlgned the great Forth
bridge In Scotland, and the building
waa done by several large firms of
steel structural workers, under their
supervision. The outside length of
the bridge Is 8,(X feet, the central
cantilever occupies 1,020 feet, and the
two side cantilevers 1,514 feet each.
The headway of the bridge at high wa
ter Is 150 feet The bridge was IT
years In building and was opened In
March, 1800. The Forth bridge Is
much nnrrower than the Brooklyn
bridge, but It exceeds It 25 feet In
span snd Is considerably longer In Its
Great 8ea of Wheat
A sea of wheat replacing a sea of
water. 20,000 acres In one tract bring
ing, forth the cereal of which Uncle
Snm and his allies In the world war
are In such great need. Is a transfor
mation accomplished on what was
ovei flowed land near Sacramento.
The huge tract formerly covered
with the flood waters of the Sacra
mento and the American rivers lies In
a fertile basin of some sixty-odd thou
Bund acres, most of which has been re
claimed and turned to agriculture
through the efforts of the federal and
state government at a cost of mil
lions of dollars.
Painful Dental Work.
In the time ot Nero there were pro
fessional dentists who could replace
lost teeth with artificial ones made
of sycamore wood, which were fas
tened to their natural neighbors with
gold wire. A gold plate with several
teeth attached has been found la an
Etruscan tomb. But those dentists
knew nothing of the art of excavating
and filling cavities. When a tooth be
came too painful they removed It not
by pulling It but by prying It out In
a manner that must have been most
distressing to the sufferer.
Evolution of the Lady Barber.
Some of you men seem to think
that woman is not qualified to take
ber place at the barber chair. She's
been trimming man ever since the first
Hector was a pup; she took to singe
ing man's contentment the moment
she spotted Adam trying to determine
why he was a rib shy ; and she began
to shave when the first efficient male
Idiot decided that a weekly allowance
for household expenses was the prop
er thing. Letter In New York Sun.
Trebles Hardneia of Leather.
A Norwegian engineer claims that
be has discovered a process by which
leather can be made two or three times
as hard as It Is normally, says Popu
lar Mechanics Magazine. Thla Is of
very special Interest In these days of
high prices for footwear and other
leather goods. While the leather can
be mad.) aa hard as wood, It does not
lose Its elasticity, It 1b said, and also
acquires greater resistance to both
beat and moisture.
Roman Soldiers' "8mokea."
Records recently discovered show
that the Roman soldiers In Caesar's
time had their pipes. tf course they
knew nothing about real tobacco, as
that had not at that period -been dis
covered. However, they did have pipes

Two lovers were sitting side by aide
In Battery park. New York, one eve
ning. "I wonder," he whispered aa he
glanced out across the beautiful bay
and saw the Statue of Liberty In the
shadowy gloom, "why they-have Its
light so small." "Perhaps," replied
the girl as she blushed and tried to
slip from his embrace, "the smaller the
light the greater the liberty."
Gasoline Street Sweepers.
The new gasoline street sweepers
operate so quickly and so cheaply that
they threaten to do away entirely with
the old hone-drawn apparatus. One
