Hair weaving and Stamping.
Opposite Grange Store McMinnville, Or
The hair should bo washed only
when absolutely necessary for pur
poses of cleanliness, and should not
be wet when dressing it for the day.
The frequent use of water removes the
natural oil from the hair, rendering
it harsh and increasing tho tendency
to split. The ends of the hair should
be clipped every four or five woeks,
thus keeping it free from split ends.
If the hair is uneven, cut to an even
length and continuo the clipping. But
bty.md this, the secret is in the free
use of tlie hair brush; as often as one
finds time, the hair should be well
brushed—until the scalp glows, and
while brushing, at least ones a day
give as many as one hundred and fifty
strokes of the brush. This requires
but a few minutes, if given rapidly,

roots; when nearly dry rinse the head
in tepid water, into which is poured a
very few drops of aniomnia. Then, by
the tire, rub the hair with towls until
peif ctly drv, brush and part the hair
with the fingers. The egg renders the
hair fine and silken and the ammonia
promotes its growth. Or, instead of
the egg uso sage tea; put two or three
spoonfuls of sage into a cup and pour
boiling water over it. When the tea
is cold rub tho scalp with it and rinse
as above. The hair brushes used
should be of the besl kind, with good
bristles, which penetrate to the scalp.
Bo not use wire brushes, they break
the hair and injure the roots. Plenty

Scene in a Broadway Gallery—Whiius ot
I ranky Fat runs.
The following scene was recently enacted
iu the gallery of a well known Broadway
photographer. A lady entered iu a glitter
ing whirlwind of lave, feathers, beads and
diamonds and accosted the affable artist in a
“1 have come for another sitting. You
have made a perfect fright of me in your
last proofs. It is too bad, 1 declare! 1 won
der if you can ever do mo justice! You
know you insisted on a three-quarters face
picture, while I told you that my profile was
“But, my dear madam,” interposed the
artist, “the picture is certainly a good like
ness of you.”
“Nonsense!”replied the lady petulantly.
“I never could bring myself to believe that I
jxisse.ssed such a horrible nose, and 1 cer
tainly have not such squinting eyes. 1 have
come to have another sitting, and I insist
that the picture slud) be in profile as I sug*
The acconimo<iating artist bowed his acqui
escence, tore his locks when the lady was
not looking, and proceeded to arrange his
apparatus. Half an hour afterward, when
the lady had taken her departure, the uu-
haj»py man addraned himself to a reporter
who chanced to be in his studio.
“Must I always be a slave to the whims of
vanity? That lady who this moment left us
has had four sittings, everyone of them with
artistic results, nnd yet she is not sutisftetl.
She is too good a patron to lose or 1 would
not humor her. Every time she has a new
Iress she must have herself photographed.
She is wealthy and can afford to indulge her
whbn, but her vanity is intolerable. She is
•mly one of a host of people who have the
•raze for being photographed.
“One spinster lady comes to me regularly
mce a month to have her picture taken. She
.ins kept an album for the past ten years, which
•obtains only her own photographs. One
■•an observe by turning <■ ”vr its pages how
ibv has gradually grown m age, month by
month. Sad! isn’t it? Uvery time she has a
new likeness taken she asks me: ‘Do you
think this picture looksolder than the lastf
“Another of my patrons is a young and
pretty girl, who has gone wild over private
theatrical* She has herself photographed
in tbe costume of every character she im-
|Mt*sonates. Still another is a young man,
n bo is as pretty as a-doll. His vanity can
ardly l>e believed. He comee here every
wo or three woeks and has scores of photo
graphs of himself struck off. These he dis
tributes indiscriminately among his friends
nnd acquaintances. Sometimes he appears
hi full walking suit— frock coat, gaiters, hat,
gloves, cane. Again you will see him pict
ured iu evening dress. I have photographed
him in hunting suit, riding suit, and even in
his dressing gown. It is a mania with him,
but I cannot complain, for it is money in
my pocket, ln fact, I make my living by
catering to tbe vanity of others. Actors and
actresses are very hard to please. They
know what an artistic photograph is, and de
mand sitting after sitting until they aro
pleased. With them, however, I can affoni
o sjxrnd considerable time, for 1 can «ell
their pictures afterward in the market.’’—

A Sublime Victory.
The victory won in the civil war was, In
five particulars, the greatest ill history: The
viators captured the forces opjioaod to them,
iiul these among the bravest of mankind;
they »-cured the largest territory ever taken
In war; they destroyed utterly the subject
.natter of the contest; they settled the issuiM
»thoroughly that no retrial can ever lie
nece»*,'irv. and, most glorious triumph of all,
they captured the hearts of the brave men
they conquered. Grant did not merely force
the surrender of Lee's veterans; he won their
regard. There was no "subjugation;” bo dlu
not make them “[«is» under the yoke." They
Isigan by reHpecting him and ended with a
warmer fw-liug; they prayed for him in hto
sfflietion, and mourned sincerely at his death.
Ills spirit survives in the universal amnesty,
«»ial and political; the war worn Confeder
ate and the old Federal sit side by «ide in tho
national congrm* and meet amicably in tlie
««rial circle. Even in tlie border stales,
where one would naturally expect local ha
treds to survive I on gent, one will meet in the
lame pal lor survivors of both armies, shar
ing impartially the «milos of the fair; and if,
sx rarely bap[>eiui, some one with more mem-
>ry than charity ventures to mouth tho
bitter terms of the bitter past, the
hearers’ quickly rising frown .ternly re-
bukei* the unwelcome memory, or tho sound
falls dead U|»n nnsympatbixing ears,
like a curse u|»n the mountain top which
illsfi on th- cold, pure air without an echo.
Contrail this condition with that of other
lands where civil war has raged; with Scot
land where one uprising followed another
for sixty years; with Ireland where the feud
nf Saxon and Celt, at the end of two cen
turies, i« only lialf apiieoM-d. -Is it not a fact
that more men have tieen killed and wounded
in American cities, fighting over the "Battle
of the Boyne,” than both armies lost in the
Imtlle itself) Yet how many riots can you
name between ex-Federal and ex-Con-
federatel Till« to our common glory, north
and south; this makes it a victory which all
can celebrate, and it to soon to lie hero as it
I« in the [««-tic literature of Scotland, where
all the heroic achievements of both sides are
cast Into a common stock and ere tho com
mon glory of the country.
lx»***» During tlie Civil War.
From the 15th of April, 1861, to the 14th of
Afiril, 1865 (when the order to stop enlist
ment* ww imrt’ed), the United State* govern
ment “called for” 2,759JM9 men. There wera
furnished 2,656,AM—a deficit of only 102,496,
most of which would have been supplied in
one month at the then rate of recruiting.
Excluding re-enlistments, It is estimated by
skillful actuaries that the Federal armies
contained about 1,800,000 men, of whom
1.500,000 at various times were in active ser
vice. Of these 69,700 (very nearly) were
killed in battle and .35.000 mortal.1y wounded}
while 184.000 died iu camp or hospital. It it
also estimated that at least 20,000 died soon
after reaching home of disease contracted in
camo—die-i before June 30, 1865—so the total
loss is usually set at 800,000
Tlx' most orations and reliable southern
historians do not put their total loss below
225,000. By counting those who lost a leg or
tn arm or were otherwise totally disabled in
a number of average regiments, north and
M’Utb, we anwa at the conclusion that the
thoroughly and ’*nnanently crippled bydia*
rase and wounds in both armies were at least
810,000. Adding the deaths in tbs first year
after the war of those injured in service, we
find that in tour years the subtraction from
the virile force of the nation reached the ap-
palling aggregrte of 1,000,000 able bodied
At the close of the war the government
had 201 general hmpiuls, with a capacity of
1.36,894 liada; in these there bad been treated,
