" Don't wash your hair," is the advice given by a woman who has been at the head of a leading American establishment for the last sixteen years. She says: " I believe tho average woman drowns the life of her hair by frequont washing. To keepthe hair in a healthy condition, not a drop of water should be used. 1 pin my faith to a good brush and prefer a short-bristled, narrow brush to the elaborate articles bound in silver." Teacher: " You may tell me, Willio, what a ruminating animal is ?" Willie: " One that chews its cubs."
