E HAVE all seen yellow hair, rod hair, brown hair, black hair
and, yes, Indeed, gray and whlto hair, and havo admired all ot
these shades, hut now Damo Fashion, who la ever fickle, would
Impose upon ub varied shades of blue hair, green and orange,
according to our favorite gown, or perhaps nationality.
Whether this Idea originated In Paul Polret'a fertllo brain, or whether
It was some other Frenchman's Idea, I do not know. Fortunately, those
weird colors are not to be used permanently, and aro only wigs to oe
changed with the costume.
The new custom was introduced by the living models In the various
shops in New York, but the fact that the stage beauties have hesitated 'o
take up the novolty makes It doubtful If the new coiffures will over bo
come popular, ' "
Not long ago a friend of mlno purchased an automobile to match her
tailor suits. This scomod at first a groat extravagance but assail ot her
suits were dark blue, the shado of the car,' It was really no extravagance.
When I nought of ,the extensive wardrobe of some ot the society women
it came to my practical mind what tho cost would bo to add a wig for each
co&tume, and I asked tho price.
"Twenty-flvo dollars nnd up," said the saleswoman.
Again I becamo curious. "Do you sell many?" I asked.
"Oh, yes," sho said.
She was a good saleswoman,

Kugel Listens to
Pleas, of Pool Hall
Owners for License
Pool hall proprietors appeared before
the city commission at Police Commis
sioner A.C. Kugel's Invitation to show
why thelr applications for licenses should
be granted, as reports from Patsey Ha
vey, special police Investigator, had led
Kugel to decide on a general "clean-up"
of pool halls.
Havey's reports on the following places
were considered: Ferris Brothers, 712 W
South Sixteenth; A, K. Ashmore, 450$
North Thirtieth; F. K. Silvers, 1102 North
Sixteenth; Joseph Keller, 410 South Four
teenth; Tony Boncordo, 115 South Sixth.
Only the place at 419 South Fourteenth
street was granted a license, although
Commissioner Kugel said It certain
things were done ho would recommend
licensing the othcr,places. Among other
things was tho removal of a "pool table
used for craps and'pokcr" from the base
men under' the hall.'
Kugel said' he would compel the pool
halls to close doors opening from tho
halls to saloons. Two proprietors said
they would comply with tho order. This
order will not apply to all the pool half,
for Kugel said tho "character of the
place" had something to do with the
carrying out of his orders.
All pool halls In the city will be visited
by Havoy and. If 'his reports justify It
Kugel wilt suspend tho licenses of tho
proprietors. An ordinance has been
passed by the council giving tho police
commissioner this power.
