In Nebraska, perhaps more than In other states,
the unification has reached an advanced stage
and, by the time the primary is at hand, it Is
doubtful whether enough voters will still be ad
hering to the third party to make any kind of a
showing. With the more than 72.000 votee reg
istered for Roosevelt In Nebraska in 112 shrunk
to about 9,000 polled by the bullmoose candi
dates in 1914, It is unreasonable to look for, at
most, more than 3,000 bullmoose votes in the
coming primary, so that sixteen national conven
tion delegates so chosen would represent not to
exceed 200 constituents apiece. The bullmoos
ers doubtless find this situation staring them In
the face also in other dlrectvote states whose
primaries, as they come to be held, beginning
with Minnesota sixty days hence, should there
fore disclose the extent to which the unification
has already gone with the rank and file regard

Huerta, Wilson and the Future.
Victo'rlano Huerta's death finishes the chapter
ot Mexican history so far as he waa one of the
chief actors, though It does not by any means
conclude the Incident In which he and the presi
dent ot the United States came so closely to
gether. It matters not for tbe moment how
Huerta came to power In Mexico, for bis offenses
and his good deeds alike have gone before a
higher court. What is of interest is that our
president, who has talked so loudly about not
"butting in" on the Mexicans did interfere to the
end that Huerta was not permitted to establish
himself In power. Direct Intervention could
scarcely have been more effective than the course
pursued by Mr. Wilson In his refusal to deal with
Huerta as bead ot tbe Mexican government.
At that time all the wandering armed bands
in Mexico save those of the Mexican government,
found favor at the White House and this policy
was steadily pursued, until a process of elimi
nation forced a choice between Carranza and
Villa. ' Little enough existed to distinguish be
tween this palr but ,by some divination not as
yet disclosed, our president made his choice. On
was recognized and the other outlawed, despite
the oft-repeated assertion of President Wilson
that he would not meddle In the affairs of the
This record of Intrigue will require a lot of
explaining some day, and we may in time find
out what John Lind reported back after visiting
Submersion of Montenegro.
The war wave has rolled over little Monte
negro, and ends its existence as an independent
state. The achievement is startling as further
evidence ot the inefficiency of the campaign of
the Allies in the BaUans. The French, English
and Italian forces have so far achieved nothing
to materially affect the Teutonic advance In the
peninsula. The signing of an armistice, the first
of tbe war, is proof that Montenegro realised
that no help could be had from tbe armies that
were of no avail to Serbia. Taking over tbe
little country increases Austria's control ot the
Adriatic, and puts a considerable damper on
Italy's dream ot territorial expansion. Further
more, it gives the German forces absolute doml
nat'on of the Balkan peninsula, with whatever
of advantage that may come from that condition.
Montenegro. has always been a considerable
factor In Balkan turbulence, and Us status is not
even now definitely fixed. The point of interest
Just at present Is that hostilities can be sus
pended by an armistice.
Getting Into the Danger Zone.
The Ford doves, having been organized at
The Hague on a permanent basis, with salaries
and an expense fund to support them, become
a different flock of birds from that which set
out on a fool's errand a few weeks ago. They
are now rapidly approaching the danger zone.
As an Impulsive venture planned to show the
philanthropic purposes and desires of certain
well-meaning persons, It wss quite harmless, and
held little that might be objected to. As a per
manent Institution, supported by ample private
funds, it takes on another aspect. Just bow it
can accomplish anything without in some way
getting into the currents of the mar isn't ex
actly plain. If it does get busy, it approaches
trouble, for It la quite certain the belligerents
will resent any systematic meddling in their af
fairs, even by this devoted band. We may need
to be prepared yet, in order to rescue the peace
It is gratifying to American sense of Justice
to find the New York probate court vindicating

Why Men Are Bald
Dr. A. X Bsyaolds ta America MCafaaiB.
MOST men became) more or less bald. Woman do
not become bald. Woman'a hair meets with
vicissitude; It seta dry and brittle and even
tecomea thin, hut women do not become bald aa men
do, on top of the bead.
What la th reason? If th average man who Is
loelns his hair he asked how h accounts for It he Is
likely to say that with him It I hereditary. If he ho
asked If be Inherited hia baldneea from hla father or
his mother, he will aay: "Why, from my father, of
course!" If he then he asked If any of hla slaters
Inherited baldneea from their father, . he will say,
"No," and he begins to toe faith In his theory ot
baldness. There ar endjeaa theories of baldness that
do cot stand any rational test or give any clue to
the difference In this respect between men and
women. Even th medical authorities give no ade
quate and convincing reason for baldness In men.
They give their theories, and a very few of them hint
at the right thing; but nowher In tandard mcdlcnl
work that can be found after diligent aearch ta a
satisfactory explanation of the baldness In men given.
What la the difference in the hablta of life, w1h
reference to th hair, between men and women T Men
cut their hair short and women do not. Men wear
hata that grip th head and women do not These two
Itema constitute th whole difference in habit between
th sexes with reference to the hair.
There la no evidence that the cutting ot hair In
any way 1m pair a th roots of the hair. On th con
trary, ther la a popular Impression that cutting tho
hair Increases Ita growth. If It does. In the nature of
thlnga It must h a very limited aid to growth. On
tha other hand, If constant cutting of tha hair has a
tendency to make the hair on the top of the heai
fall out. why docs It not have the same effect upon
the hlr on th lower part of the head, the neck an1
the beard? Th only Inference la that cutting the
hair has no effect In producing baldness.
The hata that men wear, then, ar the cause ot
their baldness abov th hat line. Women also wear
hata, but their hata are fastened to their hair snd
do not grip th head aa men'a hata do. All other
causes of baldnesa, such as Infections, seborrhea, etc.,
affect both sexea atlk and r. In fact, more difficult
to treat locally In women than In men because of
their long hair.
How doea th hat affect the growth of hair In
man? By compressing th arteries, tha velna, th
lymphatlca. and to some extent tha nerves that aupply
and nourish the hair. It la not because th hat Is
hard or soft or that It keep th head too hot It la
because th hat band compresses the vessel and
starves the roots of th hair. Caps may do the same
thing, but caps aa a rule do not grip the head eo
tightly aa hats do.
Th main vessels carrying nourishment to the
roots of the hair on top of th head and carrying
waste matter away ar in front of th ear on the
under aid of th akin and are easily compressed be
tween th akin and the bony structure of tho skull.
Two other groups of vesaels ar In th forehead on
either aid of tha median line. They aupply the hair
abov th forehead. Two other groups aupply the
back part of th head on either side of the medlnn
Baldness usually beglna at the summit of the
crown toward the back part, at the distant and weak
est part a ot the vesseta furnishing circulation. In
such cases th pressure has been on the vessels on
the aid of the head. Sometimes tha baldnesa begins
above th forehead and la tha high forehead type of
baldness. In these cases th preasur haa been upon
th vessels In the forehead. Sometimes the head Is
bald low down In th back where the pressure has
been upon tha vessels in thla region. When the head
ia completely bald on top, the pressure haa been in
tha entire vascular supply of tha scalp,
Why Is It that same men are bald and others ar
not. whll all war hat or caps? The difference la
due to th fhap of the head. No two head era
shaped, exactly allha. Some heada bulge out In front
of tha ear and permit th hat pressure. Other heada
do not bulge out in front of th ear and tha hat
make no pressure, and there ar varying degrees of
full nee that permit of varying dogreea ef presaur
and produce varying degrees of baldnesa Bom fore
heads ar full In the median line and rounded toward
tha sides, which permits preasur on th frontal res
seta that starves out the hair en the front of the
head. Some foreheads are nearly atralght across from
aid to side with distinct comer on each side. Then
th hat rests only on th corner of th forehead and
tha frontal vaaaals ar shielded from pressure, in
thla type th hair is retained abov th forehead
Horn head have a protuberance on th back ot tha
bead that prevent the hat from fitting tightly anl
prevents presaur on th two little group of ves
sel on the back of tha head, and prevents the bald
ness that Is low tn tha back of th head. Rome heads
ar so free from corner and protuberance and ar
so round that a hat fita tightly down all around
quit like on length of stovepipe over Its mat.
Heads ao ahaped become bald earliest and moat com
pletely. Th ahap of th head may ba Inherited from
father to eon. Thla Is the part heredity playa In
baldness, and It Is th only part.
It is well known that hatlees Indians are not bald,
and ther i no account of baldnesa among other aav
ag races. Th hat-wearing American negro man be
comes bald quit frequently, but the negro woman
Th reasona that prompted th wearing of hata
In tha first place naturally excite curiosity: they ar
worn to shield th eyes from the glare of th summer
sun: they are worn for warmth in winter and a pro
tection from rain, but th chief reason for the hat In
tha present day la found In an effort to ornament tha
person. It adda to th stature and to tha general Im
portance of the Individual, and the higher th hat
the greater th Importance. Such ar the dictate
of fashion. Non of th reasons given ar aufflclent
to warrant th lose of th hair.
What la th remedy?
The common aens answer la to do away with
hats altogether, either aa an ornament or aa an arti
cle of utility. When ther la any real need for a cov
ering for tha head something else can be discovered
that will aerva tha purpose and do no harm to th
hair. Th ladles, too, should be cautious In th us
of the Grecian bandeau, rubber bathing rap, auto
mobile rapa, or other headdress that girdles th head.
To b aafe, no headgear should be drawn tightly
around tha head.
What about th treatment for hat baldness ?
When the vesseta that nourish tha roots of th hlr
ar destroyed, they cannot ba restored. If they are
only partially destroyed or Impaired, massage of tha
acalp, especially along th course of th veaeela. wl'l
be useful. All lotion, singeing of th hair, etc. are
uaelesa, aa th trouble la due to tack of nourishment
from within. '
Should the mat maker and tha hat dealer be held
responsible? Not at all. Th hatter la In business
and endeavoring to elt th public th kind of hats
they want. But perhap It will be wis for soma an
terprlslng hatter to make a scientific study along tha
lines herein auggested and learn to fit nondeatructlve
hata to the heada that need them, and ao constructed
that the presaur will reat only upon th corner of
th forehead and on the center of tha back of the

NORTH norp. Neb., Jan. 14. To the
Editor of The Bee; If any person cares
to look over matters a little) he may con
vince himself In a little tim that th
principal saving the democrats have given
this country is the saving of a few
busted democratic politicians in about
every community. Two principles aeem
to have developed out hi thla administra

and get the matrimonial habit If on
gets near -the White House. I am told
that the Ladles Aid societies are gener
ally talking about tha matter, and they,
of course, are not supposed to talk about
anything but sa-red matters, except un
der the most excradating circumstances.
Up here where we live, right In God's
country, where we have nothing worse
than chicken thieves (of course a lot of
them), we had a case ef democratic sal
vation, too. A man had gone busted the
forty-fourth time, and waa again going
in tha natural way th forty-fifth time.
He waa a democrat, of course, and there
seemed to be an Intense desire to save
him. There ws not much ink wasted on
petitions for nn appointment, and we all
wondered how that one waa saved. After
Inquiring we cam to ouraelve and found
that Secretary of Stat Pancho Villa
Weelum Geenlng O'Brien, Prlnc Charles
and Abdul Ham.d von Hitchcock had no
need ot petitions. They Juat said tha
word and he was saved. Why under

I had not been to church for about two
year and I felt like a cat tn a strange
garret when I did go. Th preacher
atarted oft on Ma sermon and within
five minutes began to tell how great waa
th administration In times of war. I
did not think much of it Next time I
went to another church and felt a little
better. Th proacher talked about five
minutes and broke off to telling how
great the administration la in times of.
war. When I got out I said to my part
ner: "For the love of Mike, have the
preachers changed their religion?"
The next time I went to another church,
and they were very polite In that one.
They aaked ma to alng in the choir. I
went up, and when I thought I 'waa doing
my best I saw the people smiling. No
doubt they had heard an ungodly aqueak
from tha choir. Soon the preacher began
to talk, and within five mlnutea he broke
off and began telling how great la the
administration la times ef war. When
th service were over the preacher shook
handa and aaid: "Prothcr why don't you
give your heart to the Ixrd and be
