-stnwk out toward the 'northwest, Joining
their troops. And as we settled down to a
steady - trot, 'Iwcuburg explained to me
the movement then underway.
The bulk of the German army iay at this
1 time between the Meuse aud the confluence
of the Aire and the -Alsne rivers. .These
two streams run In a generally northwest
'direction, and almost parallel, for some
fifty miles, being nowhere more than ten
-miles apart.- Between them, -and extend-
' tag for perhaps thirty miles, -lies the Forest
Of Argonne, a rugged and densely wooded
area, consisting inulnly of a single Hue of
Irregular hills, varying in height, and end
ing at the river Junction in a bold,, preclpi-
' tous headland. On the east the Aire, a
ratber small but deep stream, has, lu the
- course of its centuries of flow, cut sharply
Into the hillside. On the west, the hills
slope gradually to the Alsne, forming a
pleasant valley, from one to three miles
wide, and under a high state Of cultivation.
At the foot of the hills a flue road winds
northward, following generally ' the course
of the river.

INCREASE IN FALSE HAIR.
Where It Comes 'From and How It
Is Handled Great Care Required.
London Is the -point of distribution
for most of thei false hair which finds
its way into the market. Within the
last-five years, it is stated, the wearing
of false hair In one or other of the
many artistic and olever forms in
which-It is now offered has advanced
by leaps and bounds. A conversation
with one of the leading artificers In
this line elicited many interesting facts.
He acorns hair from -Chinese man or
woman, deeming It - fit - only . for the
eneapest and most common of fringes,
transformations, etc. The markets he
and other good . manufacturers of arti
ficial hair frequent -are mainly inOer-
raany. Austria, :Franaeand: Italy. The
Idea that ; girls selling their alr de
prive themselves 4t all their Urtssea
at nce is, it aeems, erroneous. 4A. glr

wishing to make -money out f it, -goes
to the hair merchant and tells him ex
actry how rmaeh -Of it the will spirt
with, or -ahe divides the alr rherseV,
and offers it to him, to be out off. Bctd
to relate, ' the '.hair merchants, -s ta
class, have the reputation of ahatp, ' If

they -are so lacking In principle and
sympathy that they Invariably elip

convents that the entire hair of a
woman's head ' can he had, -and ' the
sale of the hair cut off -a nun!s 'head,
when she takes the veil,-Is a valuable
item in some convents' Incomes.
Hair bought from the ordinary mer
chant of the class described is more
often than not fraudulently weighted
with grease and dirty matter, and fre
quently the purchaser loses about 30
per cent, before the hair is cleansed.
The cost of thoroughly cleaning and
working up this bought hair is enor
mous, and as only skilled workers can
do it, the seller of the made up article
fmust make about 50 per cent, on the
price he gave to the merchant before
he realizes any profit. It may ease
the minds of ladles wearing artificial
hair to know that the cleaning of the
hair is thorough and effectually de
stroys any danger of disease from un
healthy germs. Every hair has to be
fastened in, with the root up and the
point down, as it grows on the head,
or it will not lie smooth And even. The
exact shade has to be matched from
many different lots of hair and length
and texture have also to be studied.

ONE OF THE MOST POPCZ-AR .
SHIRT WAIST MODELS.
There are always a certain few designs -which
win or themselves widespread favor 'because
of their practical attractiveness. Here is
.sketched -one of the most popular models and i
one universally liked by those who have treed
it. The narrow tacks on the shoulders or 1
gathers 'if preferred are jirst right -for a modish
fullness end excellent set, while the vyeke,
which' points down a bit in the center of -the
hock, extends over the shoulders far enough to
suggest shoulder straps, and hence breadth of .
line. The sleeve is the real shirt sleeve, with
the narrow cilff fastened whh links. 'This is"'
Ahe sleeve par excellence" among the new ahirtt
blouse models. Any seasonable "material "may J
serve for the waist, which is well adapted to.
tubbing. In the medium ize, 3 yards of.,;
,i(i-inGh material are needed.
