The people of Paris and London alone
use twenty car loads of other people's
hair. Convents usually furnish large
amounts for the French, Spanish and
Italian markets, and it is known to the
trade as " church hair." The prices of
hair range from five dollars to twenty
cents a head, though the finest of golden
hair will bring two dollars an ounce,
white hair five dollars an ounce. In
such cases a head of hair is worth from
twenty-five to fifty dollars. Some na
tionalities have a peculiar odor in their
hair; the Chinese hair lias a musky
smell, and the odor of violets has been
detected in one or two instances. The
dealers detect the quality mainly by the
touch, can tell whether its color. is dyed
or bleached, and whether it comes from
the living or the dead. As a rule hair
growers are a degraded race whose
riches consist not in their flocks, but in
their own fleeces, which they never pin
up or comb, but wear iu closely-fitting
The enormous strength of the hair is
hardly appreciable. A. healthy single
hair will support four ounces. A single
head of hair in an audience of 200 peo
ple will support the entire audience;
and the hair of all the people in Detroit

quire 5,000 locomotives to draw, and
the hairs "of the people of the globe

of these three colors. In pure golden
yellow hair there is only the yellow pig
ment; in red, the red mixed with vel
low; in dark, the black mixed with "red
and yellow; in the hair of the negro
there is as much red pigment as in the
reddest hair, and had not the black
been most developed perhaps by the
action of the sun the hair of all negroes
would be as fiery a red as the reddest

There are Fewer yeliow or light-hair-d
people than" dark-haired even
among the Caucasian race. The
blondes aro disappearing. A greater
proportion of light-haired women live
unmarried and die childless than the
dark. Dark-haired women have three
chances of marriage to two of the
.light-haired. "Just what tort of phi
losophy induces the sterner sex to talk
so much to and of blondes," says the
author, "and when it comes to the
actual business phase of life, to propose
to the brunettes, is entirely beyond my
comprehension." The blonde-haired
are most prone to consumption, cancer
and cataract, brown-haired least so;
brown-haired people are subject to
acute rheumatism, heart disease, salt
rheum; red-haired to pleurisy, pneu
monia, ague and neuralgias; blonde or
light color haired to skin diseases. The
blonde or auburn haired arc tender
hearted and easily imposed upon, and
usually delicate and refined; red-haired
people are firm in their convictions,
great lovers of their country, people
and church, like the Scotch, but when
their hair is coare and harsh they are
brutal and sensual; the black-haired
are positive and powerful, very good
or very bad; the brown-haired, as
a rule, furnish the philanthropists, the
painters, musicians, authors Homer,
Viriril, Haphael, Titian, Handel, Mozart,
Tasso, Chaucer, Hums, Keats, Long

others. Several cases of banded green,

The Unreasonable Ant.
Now and then, while we rested, we
watched the laborious ant at his work.
I found nothing new in him certainly
nothing to change my opinion of him.
It seems to me that in the matter of in
tellect the ant must be a strangely over
rated bird. During many summers
now I have watched iiim. when I ought
to have been in better business, and I
have not yet come across a living ant
that seemed to have any more sense
than a dead one. I refer to the ordi
nary ant, of course; I have had no ex
perience of those wonderful Swiss and
African ones which vote, keep drilled
armies, hold slaves and dispute about
religion. Those particular ants may be
all that the naturalist paints them, but
I am persuaded that the average ant is
a sham. I admit his industry, of
course; he is the hardest-working crea
ture in the world when anybody is
looking but his lcathcr-headednuss is
the point I make against him. He goes
out foraging, he makes a capture, and
then what does ho do? Go home? No;
he goes anywhere but home. He
doesn't knowwhere home is. His home
may be only three feet away; no matter,
he can't find it
He makes his capture, as I have said;
it is generally something which can bo
of no sort of use to himself or anybody
else; it is usually seven times bigger
than it ought to be; he hunts out the
awkwardest place to take hold of it; ho
lifts it bodily up in the air by main
force, and starts not toward home, but
in the opposite direction; not calmly
and wisely, but with a frantic haste
which is wasteful of his strength; he
fetches up against a pebble, and instead
of going around it, he climbs over it
backwards, dragging his booty after
him, tumbles down the other side,
jumps up in a passion, kicks the dust
oft his clothes, moistens his hands,
grabs his property viciously, yanks it
this way, then that, shoves it ahead of
him a momeiit, turns tail and lugs it
after him another moment, gets madder
and madder, then presently hoists it
into the air and goes "tearing away in
an entirely new direction; comes to a
weed; it never occurs to him to go
around it No; he must climb it, and
he does climb it, dragging his worthless
property to the to which is as bright
a thing "to do as it would be for me to
cany a sack of flour from Heidelberg to
Paris by way of Strasbtirr steeple; when
he gets up there he finds that that is not
the place; take a cursory glance at the
scenery, aud either climbs down again
or tumbles down, and starts off once
more as usual, in a new direction.
At the end of half an hour ho fetches
up within six inches of the place he
started from, and lays hi burden down.
Meantime he has been over all the
ground for two yards around, and climb
ed all the weeds and pebbles he came
across. . Now he wipes the sweat from
his brow, strokes his limbs, and then
marches aimlessly off, in as violent a
hurry as ever. Ho traverses a good
deal'of zig-zag country, and by-and-by
stumbles on his same boot again. He
does not remember to have ever seen
it before; he looks around to see which
is not the way home, grabs his bundle
and starts. He goes through the same
adventures he had before, finally stops
to rest, and a friend comes along.
Evidently the friend remarks that a last
year's grasshopper leg is a very noble
acquisition, and inquires where" he got
it. Evidently the proprietor does not
remember exactly where he did get it,
but thinks he got it "around here some
where." Evidently the friend contracts
to help him freight it home. Then,
with a judgment peculiarly antic
(pun not intentional), they take hold
of opposite ends of that grasshopper leg
and begin to tug with all their might
in opposite directions. Presently they
take a rest, and confer together. They
decide that something is wrong, they
can't make out what. Then they go at
it again, just as before. Same result
Mutual recriminations follow. Evidently
each accuses the other of being an ob
structi$aist They warm up, and the
dispute ends in a fight They lock
themselves together and chew each
other's jaws for a while; then they roll
and tumble on the ground till one loses a
horn or a leg and has to haul off for
repairs. They make up and go to
work again in the same old insane
way, but the crippled ant is at a disad
vantage; tug as he may, the other one
drags off the booty and him at the end
of it. Instead of giving up, he hangs
on and gets his shins bruised against
every obstruction that comes in the
way. By-and-by, when that grass
hopper leg has been dragged all over
the same old ground once more, it is
finally dumped at about the spot where
it originally lay. The two perspiring
auts inspect" it thoughtfully ana
decide that dried grasshopperlegs are
poor sort of property after all, and
then each starts off in a different direc
tion to see if he can't find an old nail
or something else that is heavy enough
to afford entertainment and at the same
time valueless enough to make an ant

most ignorant to eat according to the
very latest fashion. Of course tho old
idea that people go lo the table to satis

exploded. "When liqueurs nre hand

She ought to say, "Only half a glass,

Within a year it is expected the East

age of the great army of people who
spemi uieir nays m imw lurtvuim uieir
nights in Brooklyn. The latter city
has been fitly calfed " a lodging-house
for New York." Four hundred men
are at work on the approaches to this
bridge. They are massive granite
arches, supporting the road-bed, rising
gradually, till it crosses at a dizzy
height the river below; the bridge is so
high that most ships may pass under it ; estimated from the fact that in the City

The third means of communication
now being pushed rapidly forward is a
tunnel for trains under the Hudson
River to Jersey City. There are two
tunnels for that part which lies under
the river's bed. and they unite in one
at each end. This double tunnel is lined
with iron plates, and faced with brick
three feet thick, lhe clay excavated
from the tunnel is used to make the
bricks to line it, of whieh more than
two thousand are required for each run-
ning foot of wall. The interior will be

painted white, and lighted with eras.
The estimated expense of this work is
ten million of dollars. The work goes
on day and night; three gangs -of men
being employed eight hours each, thus
accomplishing three days work every
twenty-four hours. All the work is
done by the electric light, and thus one
great "invention helps another. The
total length of the work will be two and
a half miles, including the approaches,
though only about a mile of this dis
tance is under the bed of the river.
When it is done four hundred trains
per day can pass safely, delivering pas
sengers and freight in the very heart of

Fulquc The Mexican National Drink.
In a letter from Mexico to the New

is distilled from the maguey plant. It
has a disagreeable smell and taste, but 1
no description can possibly convey an J
adequate idea of its hurtful effects upon "
the prosperity of the country. In the
lirst place, the most fertile" and pro
ductive lauds of tho upper plain of Mex
ico are altogether given up to the pro
duction of the maguey plant. When it
is remembered that a maguey takes
often ten years to come to perfection,

Stories From the Mines.
Mani stories are told of the
iu which the first discoveries: of gold
California were turned to account by
ingenious speculators, and among them
arc the following: In one district the
gold-dust was niNed with large quanti
ties of line black sand, whieh the
miners most of whom were raw hands
blew off from the gold in their :iu
ietv to arrive at the ore itself. A keen
old man turned their impatience to ac-
1 count bv shamming lameness, and pre-
tending that in his weakly state he was
not equa1 to the toil 01 mining, and ws
thus compelled to resort to the poor
and profitless branch of gathering the
black sand, which he .sold as a substi
tute for emery. Housed to go about
on an evening with a large bag and a
tin tray, requesting the miners to blow
their black sand upon it. and returning
with il to his hut. IJy lhe aid of quick-
! silver he was able to extract the gold,
' double in quantity to that which was
' obtained by the hardest-working miner
at the washings.
Tricks of every kind were played
upon new-comers in search of the gold
en treasures. One story is told of .some
I American associates who had been
1 working at an unprofitable spot, put
ting up a notice that their " valuable
