"About bald heads, now," said a hair
drcsnor who profesmxl to know all about
hirsute deficiency and its catuce, "they
are aa much due to heredity as are
red he.vls. Muck heads, curly heads
or heads that are not curly. And
why are men no commonly bald and
women bald bo uncommonly? There
are doctors and men of science who
point to tliat fact to strengthen their
well known hih hat theory of bald
ness. They affect to believe, and in
tdfft on their belief, that the high hilk
haiaad the hard felt hat are resioniiLle
for viont of tho haldheaded men, tho un
yielding pressure of nucb. headgear con
stricting the Llxl essels which liuur
ixh the hair and thus destroying
their vital projK-rtiea, the result Inking
(loath of the roots and unavoidable
capillary Hcantiness. Women, say thes
scientific aix-cnlators, do not injure th
ritals of their hair by such means, and
thus are rarely chronically bald.
Maybe they are right, but 1 don't b
here it. Everybody knows that man.
a the head of the family, has to go to
the front and Btay there in the capacity
car the breadwinner. The strain of life
comes the most severe on the man in
that resiiect. He it is who suffers th
anxieties and buttles against the disap
pointments of business, speaking of life
In general. What makes men prema
turely old? Just these anxieties and
struggles. If prematurely old, why not
prematurely bald, which is a natural ac
companiment of untimely age? Woman
has less brain stress, iler sympathies
with the man in hia struggle may be
great, and usually aie, but they do not
make the demands on her organization
that tell so severely on the system of the
"l account lor mucn Mianess among
men by this theory of nervous exhaus
tion, but then what will explain its prev
alence among men whose circumstances
do not require them either to indulge in
business anxieties or undergo business
disappointments? Thus we see the easy
going man about town, not yet in his
prime as to years, with no haunting
thought of tomorrow, yet as bald as bis
grandfather was at seventy. We see the
pampered child of fortune, son of a mil
lionaire father, who toils not, neither
doth he spin, yet Elijah, whom the bad
boys mocked, at the same time the she
bears came out of the wilderness and
lined upon them, was not arrayed in
less hair than one of these. Some might
explain this by the sweeping charge of
dissipation. Vut it will not do. I have
among my patrons youth of this kind
who are models of sobriety, propriety
and simple living, and yet they are aa
bald as doorknobs.
"Heredity is the only explanation that
can be made of this mysterious depar
ture of the hair in early life, although
Professor Eaton, an English scientific
person who has made investigation on
the subject a specialty for years, does not
believe it. and stoutly declares that the
cause of baldness is no nearer discovery
than it was a hundred years ago.
"But whether I am right or wrong in
my theories 1 know I am right in this,
and that is when a man is once bald he
is always bald, unless his hair has fallen
out from the effects of fever. In that
case it will generally return in time of
its own accord. But a head that has
gradually lost its hair while the ownei
of it is in good physical condition has
lost it for good. If it wasn't so do you
suppose there would be so many bald
Jrided doctors and barbers?" New

How aa Elephant Eat.
An elephant's digestive functions are
very rapid, and tho animal therefore
requires daily a large amount of fodder
500 pounds at least. In its wild state
ihe elephant feeds heartily, but waste-
fully. It is careful in selecting the few
fc.it trees which it likes for their bark
jr foliage. But it will tear down
tranches and leave half of them un
touched. It will strip off the bark from
other trees and throw away a large por
tion. As it is a nocturnal animal, it selects
its trees by tho senses of touch and
smelL Its sense of smell ia bo delicate
that a wild elephant can scent an enemy
at a distance of 1,000 yards, and the
nerves of its trunk are so sensitive
that the smallest substance can be dis
covered and picked up by its tiny pro
boscis. An elephant's palato is very delicate,
and the auiuial is whimsical in selecting
or rejecting morsels of food. Youth's
Diarrhea and Digestive Trouble.
The connection between teething and
diarrhea has been considered until of
recent years as beyoiid question. But
even this is very doubtful. For our
selves, we should have no difficulty the
oretically in supposing that painful teeth
ing might upset the digestion, just as in
nervous older children and adults we see
excitement and mental anxiety produce
like results. But actually, the more the
cases are examined the less certain is
the relation of the bowel trouble to the
supposed cause. Here again develop
ments in the digestive organs may have
an influence, and the effect of heat, either
directly upon the nervous system of the
child or by injuring food, is shown by
the prevalence of these diseases in sum

Fifty Kinds of Eleetrie Fishes.
According to the statements of the
English naturalist, Profeseor Stirling,
there are in existence today upward of
fifty species of fishes having more or lees
specialized organs, the function of which
is the generation of electric discharges.
The fishes differ widely, sometimes
strikingly, from each other, belonging
mostly to different families, and oc
casionally even to different orders of the
"Pisces." In structure they closely re
semble the other species of the genera
to which they severally belong, differ
ing from them, with aa occasioaaa ex
ception, mainly in the possession at or
gans for electric generation.
The well known "eleetrie ray,- tor
example, of which Nicholson mentaoas

Atlantic and Indian oceans and the
Mediterranean sea, and are seen in the

boat to take letters out and put others
in. I his cunous postomce is unprovided
