"Fair girls are Impressionable, tweet
and trusting, and make a stronger appeal

"I found of English women per cent

Of blondes. The race Is being made dark
by selection. Men marry the dark g iris."
Dr. Beddoe.

tius. "The Greek and the Roman women
bleached their hair; the American, the
European, and the Bouth Pea Island
women do now." Auerbacker.
"There is scarcely an old master or en
Old poet who haa painted or sung a dark

"Fhakfspeare had but - two ' bMnde
women In all bis plays. The brunette

brunette today Is more popular than the
blonde Her beauty la superior, more re
fined, more lasting. "Henry T. Finck.
"The blonde type Is doomed In America
She Is parsing away Ilka the snowa in
the) sun's heat, tf she cannot develop
a dark akin to protect herself she must
succumb." Surgeon Major Charles Wood
ruff, U. 8. A.
Gladstone, Adolph de Candoll. Dr.
Bnddoe, Walts, and others show the
blonde type Is passing away In Germany,
Franca and England. In Oermany, one
the home of the type, only 31.8 per cent
are now pure blondes; In Austria, only
19 T per cent.
A student of this subject, writing In the
Chicago Tribune, asserts that In ancient
times the blonde girl had the pick of all
- the princes and knights, while her dark
sister was doing tha best ahe could with
bank clerks and motor car conductors.
In the famous paintings of the old mas
ters there are not ten of women with
black hair. Titian left only one portrait
of a brunette, or at leaat af an open and
admitted brunette. The Romans showed
their preference for tha blonda type by
tha quantity of yellow German hair they
Imported. Tha angels of the old paint
ers axe all blondes. Only tha devil was
painted black.
Dr. Beddoe examined tha first 728
woman of pure type he could find In Eng
land. Of this number, SS9 were brunette
and 867 blonde. Ha holds the theory that
tha English race Is . being darkened in
eolor by selection. Men marry the dark
women. Gladstone, years ago. made the
statement that tha pur blonda type was
dying out.
M. Adolphe da Candolle, a French auth
ority, declares tha blonda type is disap
pearing in that country. In Jarrold, It
la aald of England that aa lata as Henry
VIH'a Una that the predominating type
waa red headed. This Is certainly not the
ease new: In Germany, according to
Waits,, tha pur blonda type which waa
almost universal hi tha middle ages, it
fast dying Out. In Germany, Switseriand,
Belgium and Austria an examination was
recently made of almost U. 000, 000 school
children. The result was that In Bwitser
t land the percentage of pure blonde chll
' dren was only 1X1, In Austria it was 19.79,
and In Germany MS. In some places the
peroentaga of pur brunettes had reached
aa high aa 25. This, be It remembered.
In the very home and cradle of tha blonda

Enough water actually fell
from the sky to da4iien the

on account of It. This fact had
some bearing on the prospects
of the Omaha team for win

Great Salt Mine
A mine was discovered In the district
of Le. Pas. Bolivia. In MM), from which
the silver was cut with chisels.

is nine miles wide and ssvonteen miles
long, yet except In a few places it i sol

which is becoming thicker and
each year, says the Scientific Anie Usn.
About the middle of the last tntm v salt
crystals first began to gather upon tha
surface of the water. Year by year, tnlrg
to the evaporation of the water, the crya
tals became more and more numeous,
and then caked together until this great
roof was formed. In 1I7S the v.iter be
neath this salt crystal roof found an un
derground outlet into the Obi river. 1 his
lowered the lake's surface about three
feet, leaving that distance oetweea tha
water and the roof, and each year this
distance haa been diminishing by the con
stant addition of salt crystals to the toof.
Many springs surround this lake. Their
wster flows oves the roof and tvaporates
there, and h.. continually adds to Its
thickness. AVr many yea.s the springs
will probably become ci oked wlt'n their
own deposits, and then the whole will te
come covered with earth, so that a great
salt mine will be formed a treasure tor
