POMPADOUR WITHOUT THE RAT hfiampoos with Uwllu, Corn Meal ' end Hot Towels Jast Snavea tlvas of Waves . Christmas . Urtde'a t'olffare. ' I've been spending two hours upon the hair of a Christmas bride.. Her Intended told her that her locks were sun kissed, and now I've got to spend two hours a day upon them to keep them shining. It costs her a pretty penney and me any amount of anxiety. "I am giving the hair a new sort of touch,' the hnir specialist went on. "The fcocltty woman found herself heavy laden this autumn. She had already a weight of puffs and braids upon her head; she hud a rat. a set of combs and In soma rases an actual chlgr.on. Then, to all this, was added a havy Russian turban or toque. The poor woman, with all thl on top of her head, found herself brain weary. And of course she came to me fur relief. My pompadour treatment Is the most successful thing in vogue now. The rat Is thrown away and the hair U treated until no rat Is needed. Each Individual hair 1 made to stand on end. The hairs are brought out separately ' until they support themselves In such a way that they rvciuire no rut underneath. "The treatment Is rather difficult and I don't advise an amateur to attempt It "txfthout a professional hair dresser to help her the first time. The hair la tak.n down, shaken out and wet with gasolene. It dries quickly and can then) be put up. It will be found free from grease and quite without dust 'It is a very quick way of shampooing the hair. We call it the poinpudous sham poo in London. Of course it nui.l not be done at night. And by advice of an ear specialist I always stop the ears of the patent with cotton. "I use very little gasolene and I put It iui as carefully as though I were dropping onion juice Into a salad dressing. It tal.-s just a few drops and that Is all. "in the pompadous shampoo, while I am making each Individual hair stand on end, I aro careful to Include the cornmeal brush ing. A coarse, cheap grade of cornmeai is scattered through the hair, and the hair Is then pinned in a light little wad on top of the head and allowed to rest five, minutes. I It Is then taken down, shaken out and the i meal U brushed out of it. It U astonishing to see how easily the hair can be made fluffy la this way. "The hair must get its soap and water shampoo ooce a month, and the soap must be washed out with a very cloudburst of hot water. The water should be as hot as N Is comfortable, but It Is never a good VtUIng to scald the scalp, i Then comas the waving procosa for the pompadour, which, while worn plain In a few Cas must We vaved la most In Christmas Slippers AVe illustrate fonr leading styles.

The majority need a few soft waves near the .face, and the wise woman who has seen her twenty-sixth birthday will In sist that her hair be waved. "Waves are curious things. There are mechanical waves, such as one sees upon the women whose ideal heads adorn cheap chromos. Then there are big, soft sugges tive waves which He around the face and soften it. These waves are of the youth ful sort, not stiff and set, not of the un dulating order known as the Marcel. They are merely wave suggestions, sort of sub conscious trend of the hair in the right di rection. "To get this trend you must begin with the Marcel. The hair must have Its ex pensive waving at the hairdresser's place. Then you miiNt go home and with a big comb go through the waves, lifting them and tossing them until you get just the right stage of abandon. "Very hot towels are used for one of the new shampoos. Turkish towels are heated so hot that they can scarcely be borne In the hand. The head Is rubbed with these. The sensation Is pleasant and the towel rubbing in many cases Is a positively bene ficial head massage. I keep It up until the hair Is free from superflous oil. "There are women who look better with light hair. These women cannot afford to become bleached blondes of the chemical variety, but they can have the hair treated until It is a shade lighter than it was before. , "I take mouse brown hair and nutko it bloom by giving It the various shampoos of the season. The hot towel shampoo can be used almost daily to keep the hair fluffy and the cornmeai shampoo Is good once a week. Soap and water Is necessary once and a while and there is the cologne sham poo which calls for a epray of sweetly scented water with a thorough drying in tho sun afterward. With these shampoos I keep the hair a few shades brighter than nature made it. , 'Truly I think nature Intended hair to be bright, but the trouble is that women sleep in close rooms and they don't pay enough attention to the ventilating of the hair. This makes it heavy and darkens it. it keeps it from flufflness and In time alters the structure of the hair. Nothing grays it as soon as luglect, "I believe that the hair should be dressed twice a day. Iu the morning It can be none low and In the evening it can be dressed high. If one Is going to be quite English one can dress It low In tho afternoon and so high In the evening that it la topheavy. "English women are pulling the coiffure forward until it almost rests upon the fore head. It Is becoming if one understands waving the back and putting In the pins. But one mutt be pretty to wear the hair in such a strained manner. "We all know that the Madonna coiffure Is here. The hair is parted and drawn down and a few very natural looking waves are pinched into the sides SO as to frame the face. But there are women who positively cannot wear this kind of coiffure, and for these there miut be the old-fashioned but ever-becoming pompadour. There la noth ing that is quite as becoming as the raised and waved pompadour, all advice to the contrary notwithstanding. We find that a dozen women ran wear the pompadour where only one can wear the parted balr.

Is sure to think her locks slightly different from what they really are. Either ho thinks them raven hued when they are really a medium brown or he thinks thorn fair as gold when they're only a mud color. Then, with his flattery fresh In her ears, the bride-to-be comes to us and demands a miracle. " 'Tell me if my hair is jade color.' de manded a coming bride. 'I was told last evening that Die glow from the light glanced across It and made my locks a glorious jade. Please keep them jade col ored. "I might have told the girl that she was sitting under a green globo, but. I fore bore. I did suggest that she wear green stones In her ears, and I told her to wear a knot of green satin in her hair and a touch of green velvet at her throat. These things help in the scheme of things when one is trying to fool a man. "This girl was so determined to have jade hair that she came daily to have her hair brushed with powdered oatmeal, which seemed somehow to give it a green touch. 'It need look green only In the evening,' said she, for I never see him any other time." "We. have a bride whose hair looks black. Jet black locks are awfully becoming to her, so we apply a very tiny touch of real huir dye each day. It stiffens the hair and makes It stand out. The result la a head which needs no pompadour. But It takes a professional to apply the dye so that it does not show. Brunettes are difficult to keep groomed, but blondes can be quke reckless since their hair does not show with the distinctness of black huir. "Most of our brides want to have the hull- treated so that no false hair is re quired and we make It grow by clipping the ends and by singeing and by mas saging the roots with oils and by venti lating the hair. And we keep it fluffy. In a short time the hair responds and the result is a nice head of hair which looks young and takes the wave easily. "Our Christmas brides ure pretty well In shape, but they are nervous. They know they have pretty hair, but they are afraid It will not stay pretty. " 'I can't trust my eyes,' said a Christ mas bride. 'When I look at my hair I can't believe It is the same old hair. You have made It bright, glossy and so light that I do not need a poinpadjur. Do you think you can keep it this way until after tho wedding ?' "And I assured her that I could. After the weddjng she will probably let it go to ruin again and it will lie all dank and heavy upon her head. But that is her busi ness and his, aot ours!" Joes Oat of Tkem. A Baltimore man and his wife while on an automobile trip, stopped at a wayside hotel for a meal. The lady gave her order first. "What's your order, sir?" asked the waiter of the husband. The latter looked up from the newspaper he was reading an- replied, "Bring me a duplicate." The waiter looked puzzled, scratched his head and retired for a conference. lie re turned with the announcement, "riorry, sir, but we're juat out of duplicates.

A few to Illustrate: MIDNIGHTS IN 'ME ARCTIC Dr. Cook's Account of His Christmas in Santa Claua Land. t POLAR COLORS OF THE LONG DAY Certnlu hlrentu and Kxperlences In . the Quest for the Pole A sour of Travel on the Polar tea. Two Chrlstmases In the Arctic, 1307 and 1908, the first full of hopeful anticipations, the last one of distress approaching de spair, presented to Frederick A. Cook a sharp contrast to the childhood Ideals of Santa Claus land printed In entrancing colors at this season of the year. His ex periences on those two occasions from the Introduction and the conclusion of Dr. Cook's account of certain events In his quest for the pole, printed in the December number of the Circle Magazine. The ar ticle Is an Interesting synopsis of the dash to and from the pole. It may be recalled, as stated in earlier accounts, that Dr. Cook established his winter quarters at Annootok In October, 1907. Christmas found him In the northern Eskimo village that year. Of that etfent and the succeeding experiences of his polar Journoy he writes in part, as follows: Eating was the chief form of entertain ment. Iet no one suppose this indicates a low state of mind. No greater compli ment can be pajl to the far north than by eating txtra -rations In honor of an oc casion. We Invited three natives to Join us nt dinner, and one of them, unconsci ously following the custom of the day for these Eskimos have no knowledge of Christmas brought us twenty duck eggs, which he threw upon the floor; they made a noise like so many stones falling. If the Eskimo regards the date at all. It Is as Midnight of the Long Night, for Immedi ately afterward the first brief gleam of returning light heartens him once uior). Franckc served up quite a banquet, consist ing of roast Arctic hare, crystallized pota toes, green peas, rice and milk, peaches and cake the latter made by the aid of the eider duck egss. Our guests were Puad luna, Kudla and Koolootungwah. We let the spirit of the day govern us. doing less. If any work, though the only gift which I recall was a copy of my Antarctio book for Francke. The temperature was minus thirty-four degrees below zero, the moon three-quarters full. And so passed that Christmas day. A lit tle over two months later, on February 19, lm we began, our attack on the poie. Our Journey took us through a valley lylr-a between Qrlnnell Land north and 1C 1 1 ea rner Ijind south, but there were none of the allurements of southern valleys. The temperature ran from C3 degrees to Si de grees below zero, Fahrenheit The receding walls of this shallow valley glistened In frosty draperies and gradually softened in a deepening purple blur that merged with the lighter blue of the morning sky.

Snow goggles of amber colored glass had little to do with the wonderful color ef fects. These glasses served admirably to re duce the frightful brilliancy of snow-reflected light enabling me to see mueli fur ther and more clearly than with any other device. Often through the night that or ange band brightened the northern horizon, but the predominant color of the polar re gion Is blue. In most exquisite shades, al ways changing with changes of the atmos phere. The way ahead lay now into violet depths, then lilac and then purple, the colors rising like an emanation from the frozen pack. Sometimes the sun sank into purple haze, only to reappear Immediately as three suns of prismatic hues, and then settle into the sea. Into the general . color scheme was sometimes propelled a low block line over a pearly cloud; but this was "water sky." Indicating open water or very thin lee at no great distance. Sometimes the fitful haze which so fre quently obscured everything on the horizon would distort the face of the midnight sun. This phenomenon Interested me as greatly as any which I observed. The enormous golden disk would appear to change Its shape, becoming a huge crater c-f flames. It would become oval, 1U brightness paled and Intersected with dark lines. It would assume fantastic shapes. But quite the most remarkable phase of all, the exhibition Invariably, ended in the likeness of some grotesque man or beast. Possibly some of this was due to imagin ation. Material objects were Inverted as In a mirage, when mountains and strange appearances and even the horizon danced before us as behind a veil. As we neared the pole my Eskimo companions, imagined seals where seals cannot be. But I do not recall having detected what my compan ions actually looked to see the Tigl Shu Big Nail raklshly pointing toward the in visible Xonii star. There were deeper blues upon the hori zon as seen from the ptft, and I b Uevect as I approached over the f.ual two de grees tnat vision reached farther before it failed In this baffling mystery. On the last eager stretch the entire color scheme changed, for the frosty wtfy became a golden plain 'surrounded by sapphire walls, surmount-d in turn by a glittering filigree of gold, hut lcoklng back over the track the walls were flaming gold, the Icy plain, i shimmering sea of blue. All tills. In fact and in fancy. Is the magic of the. polar atmosphere. The changing color effects constitute the sum total of pleasurable experiences in tnat far reg.on. There was nothing elsa to stimulate thought or awaken wonder. All eie w-j life-sapping toll. I have Just referred to the streak of water sky. So, even among the few beauties of the Arctic menace stalked. That black band was re flected by a great lead between the eighty fourth and eighty-fifth parallels, which cautd me at the time the greatest anxiety. We succeeded In crossing It on th.n loe at a narrow point, and I am Inclined to think the lead extends entirely around ths Polar sea ice.

In this thrown up into high pressure ridges of great blocks compacted together, hindering pro gress and leaving for a time that great lead. The ice of the mid-polar basin pre sents few pressure ridges and less of the irregularity of the land Ice. It varies In thickness from ten to fifty feet, of which, perhaps, twelve or fifteen reet is formed beneath the surface within two years from the initial freezing, the rest being formed in process of time upon the surface. The upper layers of old ice are not salty, as is the ice at sea level. Above the eighty-second parallel human life is devoid of pleasure and of mental or spiritual exhiluration. Life consists ol Incessant effort noi to succumb to deatn. An Icy wind blows always. We worked without ceasing, during work hours, seven days in each week. There was no lunch- I eon, there was no diversion, there was only an endless round of dash, stop, chop, lift, push dush, rtop, chop, lift, push and on to the next obstacle, perhaps twenty feet, perhaps M)0. At the end of euch day, ex cepting the few Just before we reached the pole and on the entire return trip, when we used the silk tent, we built our snow igloo, shutting us from the start y world and from the dadly tempest. This took us an hour. Once wlth.n we dis robed and slept, one man getting Into his sleeping bag at a time for lack of rrom, but my two Eskimos uned one bag be tween them. Somehow we would get off jour frozen boots and pants and thrust that portion of the body Into the sleeping bag, a piece of bricklike pemmlcan between the teeth all the time. Tea Was an hour In the mahing, and by it i help we dislodged the Ice from our head coverings, removed fur coat and inner shirt, and then the bag closed over an unconscious form so' un contcious that more than one death by tcequake or hurricane was barely escaped. Sometimes, If sleep did not immediat iy come, the grateful warmth of new con tact with my own skin thawed my frozen blood, and I would lie basking in dreams of home and the days thut lay below tlu southern horizon. In the morning, with heads thrust from the bags, we reveled In u breakfast of two cups of tea, a biscuit as big as a watch, a fragment of frozen meat, and a half pound of pemmlcan.

Befors that the slightly warmer portion of the body the waist line, wrists, and below the knee, where foxtails were worn for greater protection were marked by rings of snow. The chronic squint of thi eyes reduced the pupils to pinholes, and the steady blast of Icy particles forced bitter drops that congealed as soon as freed. The vapor of the breath dropped Into my beard and rose to the eyelashes, which became solil. It Is to prevent this torture that the Eskimos pull all facial hairs out by the roots, though they grow their hair long so as to cover the face with It at times of extreme need. But our breath even floated before us and became a crystal mask, extending to the foxtails worn about the hood to shield the face.
