The Growth of the Hair.
There are three reasons why wo
men's hair is longer tban men's:
Firt, she has no hair growth on her
face, and so has a larger supply of
hair-forming material for the scalp;
second, tho diameter of her hair bo
ing larger, it is less liable to break ;
third, being usually ler,s engiged in
mental labor or business worry, she
has a more constant and even supply
of blood to the scalp.
where the fc air of the men is usually
worn hhort, f he fashion of loner hair
in the male is regarded a a piotest
against church and state, and against
general customs, taste, and thought;
in Austria it is unidij a political of-
fens to be so atti ed.
The growth of thy hair is the most
rapid in the young and middle-aged,
aud m' those living an out-door life.
At the age of eighty, if a man live so
lor. g, and if his hair and beard have
been clo.ely trimmed, he has cut off
s'ix and a half inches of hair anuuallv,
or almost thirty feet in all.
The hair is the least destructible
