WIGS AND WIG-WEARERS.
false Hair as ma Ornament to Man and a
Staple on the Market.
Wigs and waves are great invention.
They supply deficiencies; they correct
nature's delinquencies. Nothing inakes
or mars personal beauty like'a fine head
of hair or the lack of it.
In these days baldness is common as
to be almost fashionable and wigs are
not commonly worn by men. Now and
then some unfortunate ia competed to
incorporate an artificial head-covering
into his regular wardrobe, but as long
as there is a passable fringe around his
massive dome of thought the average
man avoids a wig. Masculine wigs are
not ordinarily deceptive, and tey are
warm and difficult to. keep in place.
Since it has become the fashion to crop
the natural hair so short that the scalp
is plainly visible it is doubly hard to
wear a wig at all calculated to mislead
any but near-sighted and unobservant
By common consent it has always
been the custom to supply those need
ing a substitute for nature's hirsute
adorumt-nt with curly wigs. It was a
polite fiction to presume that the nat
ural hair, it there had been any, would
be at least wavy. If a man lost hair

these curls became matted together in
corrugated ring'ets. Nowadays wigs

the partii r of tho hair. Instead of a
course muslin streak there is now a
transparent canvas that shows the
The taa-.f wigs, once affected by old
men f proud but' economical spirit,
have happily disappeared. A few
years ago there was an old minister
who wore a sort of tuft on the crown
of his head. The tuft did not in the
least match the gray hair with which
.t mingled, and when his head rose
above the pulpit it looked as if his
hair had been made from a skein of
chinchilla worsted. Whenever he be
came interested in warning his congre
gation away from the broad path that
leads to destruction the tuft of hair
Invariably slid over one ear, and his
bald head became an unconscious il
lustration of a slippery place and the
unexpectedness with which the appar
ently permanent slid down-hill.
The wave, which used to be known
as a false front, is a boon to women
and is very popular, especially in sum
mer. At the seaside it is invaluable.
After a dip into the salt sea the hair
becomes as sticky and stubborn as an
Esquimau's, and the naturally curly
wave is oftentimes the only salvation
for a belle's reputation for beauty.
Moreover, the wave, when further
supplemented by what is familiarly
known as a switch enables a girl to
choose any shade of hair without re
gard to the natural hue of her own
locks. After the white-horse craze
many Titian blondes were competed
to adopt waves and switches of a som
ber tint as a means of self-defer.se
against the unwelcome scrutiny of the
crowds upon the streets.
But the artificial bang is most ap
preciated by the army of working
women who have neither the time to
imprison their hair in curl-papers at,
night nor the patience to singe it with
a hot iron in the morning. It saves
time to be able to pin on a bang ready
crimped and reposing among the hair
brushes on one's bureau, and until it
becomes mussed it is perfectly satis
factory. Of course, waves vary widely in
beauty and naturalness. Some of them
are very costiy, and range in price from
f 3 to $15. While wealthy women do
not grudge any sum expended to con
ceal the ravages of time or dampness,
working women are content to buy
their bangs at .bargains.
It is a pity that all waves and wig
lets become in time what is colloquial
ly called "ratty." "Batty" is a word
more descriptive than elegant, and its
derivation is lost in obscurity. It has
bo connection, however, with the
pestiferous rodent. Waves become
"ratty'" or dead-looking very soon.
Then the fashionable dame sends hers
to the hair-dresser and the business
woman takes hers between her teeth
women are never too fastidious to hold

Change in Watch Crystals.
There have been some curious
changes of late years in the fashions
for staple commodities, and especially
is this true in the matter of watches.
The watch is either looked upon as a
trinket or as an article of serious use.
In the first instance it is set in a round
ball, incrusted with small diamonds,
tVmetimes intermixed with rubies or
with sapphires, or it forms the top of
a smelling-bottle, or is set in a brace
let or the handle of a parasol. But
the serious watch of everv-day wear
has become a very practical article,
indeed. "In old days," said to me a
famous Swiss jeweler of the Rue de la
Paix the other day, "the business of
replacing watch crystals was an im
portant item, amounting, on an aver
age, to thirty dollars per week. Now,
instead of the delicate soap-bubble
glass formerly used, the watch-crystal
is made thick and strong so as to stand
any amount of rough usage short of an
actual blow. The introduct ion of these
massive crystals has brought about a
change in the make of watches. Not
half so many hunting-cased watches
are sold as formerly, as they are so
much less convenient than the open
faced ones, and the thick crystal does
away with the only real objection to
t;,o latter." Paris Letter.

things that will mature just as well

that same day he should pass that

long-expected moment had come. He
took the weeping boy aside, told him
his story, paid his fare, and asked him
in his turn to pass the kindness on.
And as the train moved from the sta

From early ages till now the race
classification of mankind has been
subject of interest. For a long time
only three types, comprising the white
European, the brown Asiatic, and the
black African, were recognized. To
those, after the discovery of this con
tinent, the red American was added.
But the number of alleged races of men
has fluctuated all the way up to sixty
three; and theory after theory of clas
sification has been from time to time
developed and abandoned. And now
the idea of classifying the human races
according to their languages is taking
precedence over other modes. This
system of classification, it is said, will
give our American Indians an ethno
logical prominence much greater than
has hitherto been assigned to them.

THE SOUL OF WORK.
Why Labor Without Spirit 1 Virtually a

There is a certain man of busino i-

the work he cares little for details.
Not every man of action is so keen
sighted; most men of this stamp are
exacting in matters of discipline, and
care little for the spirit in which the
work is done. The spirit is, neverthe
less, the main thing; if the spirit is
right there wlH bo no shirking, no in
efficiency, no procrastination. Whore
a man's spirit leads him, there will his
feet walk willingly and his hands do
gladly. He will need neither urging
nor watching; no one will demand so
much of him as he will demand of him
self; no one will be half so critical of
his manner and method as himself.
When the motive power is right the
machiuery will look nftur itself; if the
motive power is defective or unregu
lated, the finest machinery is u: elcss.
Now, one of the seeivls of success is
getting one's spirit into one's work;
getting behind all one's activities the
full force of one's motive power. This
is by no means so common a -4 one
would think; it is. in fact, so uncom
mon that when a man puts his whole
force into his work he sewn attracts at
tention because by that very fact lie
separates himself from the crowd.
A great deal of the work of the
world is done in a perfunctory manner;
done to get through with it; done to
get it off one's mind; done to secure
the return which It promises. It is
done without enthusiasm, originality,
contagious zeal. Sto: es. shops, o:!lee.
factories are full of men whose chief
desire is to get their work oiT their
hands as quickly and with as little
expenditure of strength as possible.
They put as little of themselves ai pos
sible into it. These are not the men
who invent new methods, perfect new
processes, secure rapid a:ul honorable
advancement; they a:e not the m n
upon whom every bily ruiie?, whom
every body trusts, who turn the re
luctant face of fortune towards them
The men who give their work char
acter, distinction, perfection, arj the
men whose spirit is behind their
hands, giving them a new dexteritv.
There is no kind of work, from the
merest routine to the highest creative
activity, which do -s not receive all
that gives it quality from the spirit in
which it is d;vie or fashioned. Work
without spirit is a Inuiy without soul;
there is no ihV in it. Flawless work

no matter how Ir.gii the grade of its

one's work is to vita'ize it. to give it
force, character, originality, distinc
tion. It is to put the stamp of one's
iHture on it. and the living power of
one's soul into it. When Mr. Arnold.
;n one of his brief speeches in thi?
country, urged young writers to put
their hearts into their business, he
disclosed one of the sources of his own
influence. His technical skill wa- great,
his sense of beauty delicate and almost
fruitless, his instinct for form unerring,
but all these qualities, though the
pave his work a great charm, did not
give that work its peculiar influence
upon many of the finest minds of the
day. That influence came from the
fact that Mr. Arnold put his spirit into
every line he wrote, charged his work
v. ita his own personality. It is thf
quality of spirit which gives his verse
its beautiful meditativeness. and hi.
prose its peculiar sincerity and audaci
ty. That which imparts life to the

A Canal Across Italy.
It is proposed to commence a canal
upon the western shore of Ita'y, jusi
above Civita Vecchia, at Cast re, and
to cut through to Fano on the eastern
ir Adriatic 6hore. A glance at the
nap of Italy will show that in this line
two lakes are met, those of ltolsena
and Trasimeno, and it is proposed to
drain these two lakes, thus securing
the area for cultivation. The length
of the canal will be about 16!) miles,
the width of it 110 yards, and its d pth
is to be about 13 yards, so that ships o(
any tounago, and oven men-of-war,
will be able to pass through it The
cost of the canal is reckoned at 5H),
000,000 francs, that is, -0,H)0.O(X). It
is estimated that the work could be
completed in five years from its com
mencement. The Italian journals are
highly interested in the project and
are taking up the matter warnvy, and
when the fact of the long sea passage
round the south coast of Italy and up the
stormy Adriatic to Trieste an.l Venice
is remembered, certainly the canal
would be of immense service to the
whole of Southern Europe. Loiulon
