Black and Fair. Hair. There is rather an ,
amusing a tide j on "Htunan Hai-," in "a late
number of the " London Quarterly Review." In
' turope, the fair, st haired inhabitanu are, foand ,
i.orth of the parallel of 48 deg. Between 48 deg.
and 45 deg. paradel, there is a debatable land of
dark brown hair, and to the tropics' the races art"1
generally black j haired. There are exceptions,
' how ever, to thej lines, as the Venetians have been
disiiuguislied fr g Id n hair', while in Ireland the
Cells have Is en d st nguished f r black hair. In
America, however, among the Anglo-Saxon races,
very fair people are Lund iu the piue Woods of the
Southerh StatesL
The idiffeVencfe of oohr in the hair it owing to
, the tint of the fluid which fi U the hollow' tube in
each hair. This fluid has been analyzed by Liel-ig,
and the result jshow, "that the beautiful golden
hair oes its brightaess to au exetss of sulphur
'and oxygen rh a deficiency of carbon, whilst
i ltck hair owes! its jetty a-pect to' an exeese of car
bon and a deficit ncy of sulphur and oxygen. Few,
' perhaps, have ever bestowed a thought upon the
; number of. hairs in the human head. A German,
