Coiffures of the American Indians Kthl
oplaus and their Kinky Locks Th
Asiatic Head Dressing of the South Sea
Islander-Ktw Zealanders.
Why should savages care for their halrl
The question is not easily answered, for sav
ages, apparently, care for so little according
to our notions in the way of personal ap
pearance that regard for their locks would
seera to be the last mutter to which they
would give attention. Hut, nevertheless,
there is reason to believe that savages have
much more concern for their locks than we
are apt to believe; and, indeed, no pages of
travelers books are more interesting than
those which give accounts of the manners
and dross of the barbarous races; for, by
means of the hints imparted by travelers'
notes, we are able to gather that vanity is as
prevalent among Ravages as among the civil
ized, and fashion as imperious in her man
Among the American Indians great atten
tion has always bocn paid to the hair, and
well it deserves it, for although coarse.
harsh and straight, tho hair of tho American
Indian is of a deep lustrous black, and when
properly arranged, is capable or making a
Tery beautiful coiffure. Tho works on Amer
ican antiquities give a great number of
styles of hair dressing in vogue among the
Indians. Among the Shawnecs the favorite
style was to closely clip the sides of the head
in front, above and behind the ears, and allow
a straight ridge of hair to grow from the
forehead to tho nape of the neck, adorning
this with feathers, and sometimes plaiting
the top into a long cue behind. The Indians
of the North Atlantic coast had a habit of
clipping the entlro head, with the exception
of a scalp lock just at the top, though not
infrequently the savage beau, instead of
dipping, would permanently destroy the
growth of hair on all portions of the head,
except the apex of the cranium, by pulling
out the hairs by the roots and rubbing ashes
or 6ome other strong alkali on the skin to
destroy the growth. The Indians of the
l'aciflo coast frequently clip off or pull out
the hair on the top and buck of the head,
leaving a lock over each ear, while in the
south it was a practice among tho Indians to
extirpate the hair on all portions of the head
save the back, and leave that for a scalp
lock. In all coses, wherever the lock or locks
were left, they were always adorned in the
highest style of Indian art, sometimes with
feathers, occasionally witn wampum or
tieads, and not infrequently their size was
increased and their length extended by the
use of horso hair.
The Ethiopians have no hair, properly
speaking, but what answers them for hair is
really different from the hair of the white
races. If a hair from the head of a Caucasian
be examined turougn a microscope, it is
found to be hollow and composed of sections
or joints somewhat resembling those of a
cane, or in some cases like a ladder with its
rounds. The hair of an African is entirely
different in this respect, being solid and
round, this constituting the difference be
tween wool and hair; but nevertheless, the
fact that his wool is solid appears only to en
dear it to the African, who gives it all the
more attention, perhaps because he has so
little of it, and divides his scalp into patches,
gathering up the hair trom each into a cir
cular knot and tying it with a string as care
fully as though it were a treasure. In the
interior of the Dark Continent the wool of
the negroes is frequently long, though never
straight, but so difficult is the task of disen
tangling their locks that not much attempt
at ornateness is made in the African head
dresses. Livingstone says that when an
African chief makes his toilet, the most he
ever attempts in the way of arranging a
bead dress is to comb his wool up into a
pyramidal shape, stick a few feathers in it,
and hang one or more strings of beads along
the facade, so to speak, of this unique edifice.
The Asiatics have always been famous for
decorating their heads. The Mohammedans
of old shaved their heads, except a single
knot of hair at the exact top of the head,
which was left for a practical purpose, the
Mohammedan doctrine being that at the res
urrection of the dead the Angel Gabriel was
specially detailed to attend to the Mohamme
dans, and he raised them by the top knot.
Accordingly, the top knot was left full and
strong, in order that the hold might not
break, a hole being left in the top of the cof
fin in order to facilitate the angel's work.
The Chinese method of hair dressing is too
sfKtnown to need description, whilo in
India he styles are both numerous and di
versifledV nany of the tribes of the Punjaub
being distinguished from each other by their.'
methods of dressing their hair.
According to Lubbock, Darwin and other
authorities, the head dressing of the South
Sea Islanders is ornate in the last degree,
while not Infrequently their styles of dress
ing their hair are so ingeniously grotesque as
to create the impression that the arrange
ment was solely for the purpose of exciting
laughter. Sometimes most of the hair on
the head is clipped away, leaving a number
of short, round tufts, as though the scalp
were planted with short paint brushes. Oc
casionally the hair is cut away from the
forehead and temples, leaving it at the top
and back of the bead; sometimes the back oi
the head is shaved, leaving the hair on the
top and sides; but generally the entire growth
of hair is left upon the head, and as the capil
lary adornments cf the New Zealanders are
very long and bushy, the coiffure of a chief
generally assumes enormous proportions.
One traveler mentions the fact of seeing a
chief in New Zealand whose head dress was
over three feet in diameter and arranged in
long cones, the surface ot the scalp being di
vided into a great number of small circles,
and the hair growing in each twisted up and
so curled as to form inverted cones, the point
being towards the scalp.
But not content with these extraordinary
appendages, tho South Sea Islanders have a
practice of dyeing their hair and in the most
extraordinary colors. The natural color of
their hair is a jetty black, but they have a
number of pigments, the use of which is well
known to them, by which they color their
locks red, green, blue, yellow and white, and
every variety of color may be seen in the
course of a day's walk. But the New Zealand
dandy is frequently not satisfied with having
bis hair of one color, and so will dye it in
several, making bantLj or stripes across his
cranium. A recent traveler records having
eeen a New Zealander with an enormous
shock of busby hair. In front the hair wiu
left its natural color. Next, from one ear
across the top of the head to the other, came
a 6 tripe of white hair, then a band of red,
then a streak of green, then a blue stripe, and
this parti-colored savage, who resemblec

ited clown in the circus, was not only the ad

Vexas Cattle Trained to Bellow "nail
Columbia" A Unique Concert.
It was now about 6 o'clock and the sun
was rapidly approaching the horizon. The
bovine orchestra was to perform as usual at
6, or about sunset, Just before feeding time.
Mr. Ilemlnway lod the way to the home
corral, a heavily timbered stockade just over
the crest of hill and about a quarter of
mile from 4he house. The cowboy band
which had ridden out to meet him accom
panied the party on horseback. It was t
cool but calm April evening, the air balmy
with the fresh prairie air and the faint per
fumes of wild flowers. As they approached
the stockade melodious bellowings sounded
over the pale. Within were Just twenty of
the most intelligent boasts in the whole herd
of 60,000. Brawny, big boned, long horned
and muly some of them smooth limbs,
sleek coats and bright eyes marking them as
crack cattle. They moved forward In
leisurely, solf contained way and stood look
ing at the cowboys. Six of the latter dis
mounted, came inside with their trombone.
cornet, French horn, big horns and cymbals.
Each cowboy took up a position by a partic
ular ox.
Six of the cattle were now separated from
their fellows and Jed by the horns to skeleton
stalls of light poles, constructed so the beasts
faced In towards tho center of the inclosure
and were ranged on tho soft grass side by
side, near enough to touch the tips of each
other's horns. The cowboy with the cornet
stood immediately in front of a light brindled
heifer that had an exceedingly vivacious
aspect and was very quick on its feet. The
trombone confronted an almost jet black
steer that proved to have a high voice of
great reverberatorj power. The cymbals
flanked a red bull, while the other horns
were pointed at bright eyed cows that re
garded the whole strange scene with an ex
periencod air and anticipatory delight.
The Ileminway party stood slightly to one
side, the unofQciating cowboys, to the num
ber of forty or more, In a group near them.
Just as the sinking sun reached the horizon
and 6eemed to liagcr for a moment before
saying good night, Mr. Ilemlnway gave the
Tho cowboys at once struck up "Ilail
Columbia," playing that fine old air with
much spirit and tolerable correctness. With
the first note from each instrument the ani
mal in its front raised its neck, opened its
mouth to the widest capacity, and throwing
its head back gave prolonged and musical
utterance to sonorous sounds which, if they
were not singing lu the human sense, consti
tuted, something remarkably like it.
The accord between the instruments and
the vocal accompaniment of the bovine
chorus was perfect. Thure was oue harmoni
ous volume of sound, that echoed far and
wide with singular power and sweetness, car
rying through the charmed air strains of the
western patriots' favorite song and mellow
ing in the distance to a grand choral odo.
But the most interesting part of the unique
performance was yet to coma When the
strains of the horns died away the cowboy
performers withdrew and Joined the other
cowboys. The bovine chorus was left to
itself. Mr. Ileminway drew a revolver from
his pocket, and tired a shot. As the smoke
curled up in the fading sunlight, the steers
opeued their mouths, throw their heads back
and in perfect harmony went again through
the air they had just finished. The ring and
volume ana sweetness or their voices were
now distinctly apparent They chanted ab
solutely correctly and lacked only articula

The Game of "Fingerhackeln. M
A tourist in Tyrol watched two hot
headed youths, who, having got into some
dispute over money matters, hod agreed to
settle it by a resort to what in that
country is called "Fingerhackeln." This
game, or rather struggle, is a simple
trial of strength of arm and biceps. The
table is cleared, and the two competitors
seated opposite each other, with the table be
tween them, stretch out their right hands sc
as to let them meet in the center. Each,
bending the middle finger into the shape of a
hook, entwines it with that of bis rivaL At
a given signal each begins to pull, the object
being to drag the antagonist across the board.
Both were strapping young fellows, each
eager to show off his prowess, and the fact
that they were well known adepts at it ren
dered the struggle doubly Interesting. Vio
tory swayed hither and thither; the most pro
digious efforts were made to wrest the slight
est advantage from the foe, the subtlest ruses
coming into play, the most impossible con
tortions of the body undergone; and yet the
issue seemed as far from decision as at the
very outset
With set teeth, rigid features and heaving
breasts, the two young fellows tug and pull,
and neither will give in. Their hands are of
an angry red, the veins swollen to double
their usual size, while drops of perspiration
on their foreheads tell of their almost super
human exertions.
Watching the face of one, the observer all
at once saw a look of agonizing pain shoot
across it His hand dropped; the struggle
was at an end. Poor fellow! his finger is
maimed for life; for the principal muscle has
been rent in the fierce struggle. His antago
nist, by a sudden jerk one of the numerous
tratagems of fingerhackeln has succeeded
in unbending his adversary's finger.
One very frequently sees In Tyrol a man
with a finger bent nearly double on the right
hand. If you ask the cause, you will invari
ably be told that it happened while "finger
hackeln." Youth's Companion.

While I sat in another fashionable hair
dresser's shop, waiting for my hair to dry, 1
idly watched a little woman through a glass
partition as she made up her face. She
rubbed her entire face with some fine white
powder until she looked like a clown at the
pan to mine; then she took a chamois
skin and carefully rubbed and smoothed
it until only the suspicion of the
powder was visible. Next she took a small
hare foot brush and, dipping it daintily into
a box of rouge, proceeded to redden her
cheeks. This was then carefully toned down
with another dash of white. Then the eyes.
She penciled her brows and drew black lines
close up to the under lash. Then daintily
wetting her finger she drew it over her eye
brows, the moisture emphasizing as it were
the blackening process. Then she took a
hand glass and regarded herself from all
points of the compass. The result evidently
was satisfactory, for she came out with a
gratified smile. She had gone in the little
room a dark skinned, rather tallow faced
person; she emerged with the pink and white
complexion that should belong to a radiant
blondo. This process had been gone through
with in plain view of the rest of the people
in tho room, and with a serious and business
like air that was quite astonishing.
"Do you make up many society ladies?" I
asked. "Yes, indeed, though not here. We
are sent for and go to their houses to dress
their hair and then make up their faces for
them afterward. Ob, yes, we have a great
many regular customers in the make up
"I suppose you have actresses, too?"
"Well, not so many. You see, they know
how to do their own make up. That's a part
of their business just as much as fine dress
ing; but ladies generally make a botch
of it either get too much or too little, so
they save themselves the bother and fuss by
having it done for them just as much as hair
dressing or manicuring. There, your hair's
done now better let me touch your face up
a little you've no idea how nice you'd look.
No! Well good day."
My Turkish bath attendant tells mo that
she has seen the frightful ravage which cos
metics and dyes have produced.
"I wish ladies would see the results of such
follies as I have," she said, "they would not

Hair dressers say that the yellow bleach is
not much in demand now. The lemon haired
blondes are not in vogue. The red haired
girl is the rage. The hair that looks brown
in the dark and turns red in the sun is also
very desirable.
I know a lady who had such hair, or, at
least, her back hair was that color. Her
bangs were much darker than her back hair,
and the contrast was not pretty. Her hair
dresser suggested doctoring them a bit
"I dont dare," she said.
"I have stuff which will do it positively
harmless," he urged.
"Drink some of it and IH believe you," she
said, and he complied. She argued that if it
couldnt hurt his stomach it ought not her
head, and allowed transformation to take
place. Nor has she ever experienced any ill
results. But it is generally very unsafe to
tamper with one's hair. Blindness and in
sanity are often brought about by this folly.
This has been told women again and again,
but they pay no heed and rush madly in
where angels would fear to tread. There is
no risk a woman will not run, no pain she
will not suffer, if she thinks thereby she can
be made more beautiful
I know a woman who has used cosmetics
all her life, and those, too, of the rankest and
most poisonous kinds. Now she is paying
for it Her skin is something terrible to see.
Physicians tell her it's her stomach, but those
who have seen her daubing on lotions, pastiles
and powders know better. She was a hand
some woman, too she had no need of these
accessories. Her friends often remonstrated
with her, but to no avail. Now she is reap
ing the whirlwind.
I know of another lovely woman who was
sensitive about her freckles. She took some
powerful cosmetic and removed them. She
never seemed strong after that, and died be
fore she was SO. I knew another who would
take infinitesimal dose3 of arsenic. She
died with some unknown stomach disease.
But the saddest case I know of was one of
a most beautiful, dashing society woman. I
remember seeing her one night in her sump
tuous, glowing beauty, the queen of an ice
carnival, surrounded by flatterers and ad
mirers. I did not see her again until three
years afterward, and then she was being led
along the street by an attendant totally
blind from the excessive use of cosmetics
and, worse than that, continually subject to
terrible epileptic fits.
These are "awful examples," but true ones.
and still in the face of these and kindred
warnings women will insist upon painting
and powdering and dyeing themselves.

A Warning.
The modes of death's approach are va
rious, and statistics show conclusively
that more persons die from disease of the
hroat and lungs than any other. It is
probable that everyone, without excep
tion, receives vast numbers of Tubercle
Germs into the sj'stem and where these
germs fall upon suitable soil they start
into life and develop, at first slowly and
is shown by a slight tickling sensation in
the throat and if allowed to continue their
ravages they extend to the lungs produc
ing Consumption and to the head, caus
ing Catarrh. Now all this is dangerous
and if allowed to continue will in time
cause death. At the onset you must act
with promptness; allowing a cold to go
without attention is dangerous and may
loose you your life. As soon as you feel
that something is wrong with your throat,
lungs or nostrils, obtain a bottle of Bos
shee's German Syrup. It will giye you
immediate relief.
