This has been told women again and again,
but they pay no heed and rush madly in

no risk a woman will not run, no pain she

be made more beautiful.

years afterward, and then she was being led

Why should savages care for their hair?
The question is not easily answered, for sav
ages, apparently, care for so little according
to our notions to the way or personal ap
pearance that regard for their locks would
seem to be the last matter to which they
would give attention. But, 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
thoee which give ai -counts of tho manners
and dress of the burbarous ra-es; for, by
means of the hints imparted by travelers
notes, we are able to gather that vanity is as
prevalent among savages as among tne civu
zct, and fashion as Imperious in her man
dates. Amone the American Indians great atten
tion has always been paid to the hair, and
well it deserves it, for although coarse,
harsh and straight, the hair of tho American
Indian is of a deep lustrous bluck, and when
properly arranged, U capable of making a
very beautiful coiirure. i no works ou Amer
ican antiquities give a great numucr oi
styles of hair dressing in vogue among the
Indians. Among the BUawnocs uie iavonuj
style was to closely clip the sides of the head
in front, above and behind the cars, and allow
a straight ridge of hair to grow from tho
forehead to the uae of the neck, adorning
this with feathers, and sometimes plaiting
ttja top Into a long cue behind. The Indians
of the North Atlantic coast had a habit of
clipping the entire head, with the exception
or a scalp lock just at the top, though not
infrequently the savage beau, instead of
clipping, would permanently destroy the
growth of hair on all portions of tho head,
except tho apex of the cranium, by pulling
out the hairs by the roots and rubbing ashes
or some other strong alkali on the skin to
destroy the growth. The Indians ci the
Pacifto coast frequently ciip tff or pull out
the hair on Vhe top and ba?k of the head,
leaving a lock over each ear, while in tho
south it was a practice among tho Indians to
extirpate the hair on all portions of tha head
save the back, and leave" that for a scalp
lock. a all cases, wherever the lock or locks
were left, they were always adorned in tb
highest style of Indian art, sometimes with
feathers, occasionally wth wampum or
beads, and not Infrequently their siw was
increased and their length extruded by the
use of horse hair.
ETHIOPIANS AND ASIATICS.
The Ethiopians have no hair, properly
speaking, but what answers them for hair is
really different from the hair of the whita
races. If a hair from the head of a Caucasian
be examined, through a, " jtucroscopo, it Is
found to b? hollow and. composed of sections

roinift. 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 be has bo
little of it, and divides his scalp into patches,
gathering up the hair from 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 ornatcness 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 or arranging a
head 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 tor
decorating their beads. The Mohammedans
of old shaved their head-s, 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 trabnel was
specially detailed to attend to the Mohamme
dans, and he raised them by the top knot.
Accordingly, the top knot was lert lull and

The Chinese method of hair dressing is too
well known to need description, while in
India the styles are both numerous and di
versified, many of the tribes of the Punjaub
being distinguished from each other by tbei.
tnetbods of dressing then hair.
Trip 8QVTB SEA ISLANDERS.
According to Lubbock, Darwin and other
authorities, the head dressing or the bouth
Sea Islanders is ornate in the last degree.
while not Infrequently their styles of dress
ing their hair are so iugeuiously grotesque as
to create the impression that tue 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 of
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 of the Itew Zealanders are

long cones, the surtace or. tue scaip ueing ui

and the hair growing in each twisted np and
so curled as to form inverted cones, the point
being towards the scalp.
But not content with these extraordinary
appendages, the South Sea Islandei-s 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 pigmeuta, the usa of which is well
known to tljem, by which they color thoir
Jocks red, green, blue, yellow and white, and
every variety of color may be seen in the
course of a clay's walk. But the New Zealand,
dandy is frequently not satisfied with having
bis hair of one oolor, and, so will dye it to
several, making bands or stripes across his
cranium. A recent traveler records having
seen a New Zealander with an enormous
shock of busby hair. In front tho hair wai
left its natural color. Next, from one ear
across the top of the bead to the other, came
a stripe of white hair, then a band of red,
then a streak of green, then a blue stripe, and
this parti -colored cavage, who rosemblec
