SERMON ON BALD-HEATPS.
By L. A. Miller.
Ye Editor seems to have it in for
the individual who made a gentle and
disparaging remark about bald-heads
—that being a polished topic, I should
like tc make a few brief remarks re-
garding bald-heads. I have a neigh-
bor who, by the way, is a most con-
genial, whole-souled fellow; he is,
comparatively speaking, yet a young
man, and he is hopelessly bald; his
head resembles a well-polished billiard
ball. He recently asked me, why are
some men bald headed? This is a
plain, plump question, and the plain,
plump answer is: Because they ought |
to be. The bald-headed man has him-
self to blame to a certain extent, but
not altogether, as baldness is one of
the things he can saddle onto the an-
cestors from away back.
He is to blame for not allowing the
wind to blow through his hair, and for
shutting the direct rays of the sun off
from it. His ancestors were guilty of
the same offense, the punishment for
which extends to their posterity; even
to the fourth generation. Some forms
of baldness are due to a scruff, or dis-
ease of the scalp. This is readily cur-
ed with mild applications of sulphur,
followed in a few hours by a thorough
washing. In some instances a tonic
applied to the scalp is also necessary,
in cases of this kind the scalp does not
assume the smoothness and glare of
a billiard ball.
In a majority of instances men are
bald because there is no necessity for |
there being hair on their heads. Hair
was intended for a covering and pro-
tection for the head, and as long as it |
was thus used baldness was unknown. |
As soon, however, as man began wear-
ing close, warm caps and hats, that |
soon nature recognized the fact that |
it was no longer necessary to keep up |
the supply of hair. Necessity is the
first law of nature, and it ceases to
act, as a law, almost as soon as man
supercedes it by rules of his own. It
will be noticed that the line of bald-
ness, except in cases of scalp disease,
never extends below the edge of the
hat crown. From the line where wind
and storm strikes the hair it grows
well enough, and there is no trouble
in keeping it growing.
The beard does not drop out from
the same cause that the hair of the
scalp does. Women are rarely trou-
bled with baldness, and when they are
it is from disease of the scalp. Their
bonnets and hats are so constructed
and so worn that the wind can blow
through them almost without hin-
drance. Of late women have gotten
into a fashion of wearing patches,
frizzles and wigs. These cause bald-
ness, or thinness of the hair on the
parts where they are worn. If these
fashions are kept up for many years
the number of bald-headed women
will increase, just as it did when it
was the fashion in England for ladies
to wear wigs from the time they en-
tered society until they died. It is
possible, therefore, that the bald-head-
ed row in our theatres may have la-
dies in it who can show clear titles to
seats therein by taking off their false
One of the most prolific causes of
baldness, is hair starvation. There is
very little flesh, or soft tissue between
the skull or scalp from which to draw
plying the hair are necessarily small,
nourishment. The blood vessels sup-
and are not able at best to support it :
fairly. Anything, therefore, that will |
reduce the blood supply to the scalp |
will tend to impair the quality and
quantity of the hair. Not only is the
hair starved by the blood supply being
cut off, but by its being impoverished.
If the blood is not rich in the elements
necessary for the formation of hair,
the quality of hair will be greatly im-
paired. For this reason the hair of
the dyspeptic and poorly nourished
persons is usually dry, dingy and stub-
by. Ladies notice this when their
health begins to fail.
Upon the whole, the great causes |
for baldness are: Lack of necessity
for hair on top of the head, and star-
vation by shutting off the necessary
nourishment. A tight band around,
the head not only acts as a compress |
on the larger vessels leading to the
scalp, but it also benumbs the nerves |
which control to a greater or less ex- |
tent the flow of blood to the parts.
Atrophy and absorption of the hair
bulbs follow, the little cells are closed |
and the scalp becomes perfectly |
smooth and shiny. An air-tight, dark |
colored hat added to this band renders
the failure of the hair crop doubly
sure by shutting out the sunlight and
air, as well as by performing, imper-
fectly, the functions of the hair—the
protection of the skull and brain.
How natural it is for the populace to
howl and shout its hearty approval
when a “masher” gets thrashed for in- |
sulting a woman, and public sympathy
goes out to a woman who has been
abused by a brute of a man.

74,000 ACRES BOUGHT FOR
PENNSYLVANIA NEW NATION-
Washington, D. C.—Purchase of
74,025 acres of land to form the nu-
cleus of the new Allegheny National
forest in Pennsylvania has just been
authorized by the National Forest
Reservation Commission. Twenty-
seven tracts of cut-over and burned
lands, on the headwaters of the Alle-
gheny river in Warren, Elk, Forest,
and McKean counties, were contract-
ed for at an average price of $2.75 an
“Tt is less than a year,” said W. W.
Ashe, secretary of the Commission,
“since authority was given the Feder-
dl government to acquire land for na-
tional forest purposes in Pennsylva-
nia. By protection and systematic
management, the cut-over lands so
acquired will again be made to con-
tribute to the timber supply of the
State and Nation, supplementing in
this way the forests which the State
itself is acquiring and putting under
management. Because of its enor-
mous industrial needs Pennsylvania
ranks among the first in its timber re-
quirements. Four-fifths of the lum-
ber used by its industries and people
is now produced outside its borders.
For this reason the people of Pennsyl-
vania are vitally concerned in the up-
building of productive forests both in
their own and other States.
“There are in the United States
80,000,000 acres of at-one-time forest
land now cut over, badly burned, un-
productive and contributing nothing
to the timber supply of the country.
In addition to being idle, these lands
tend to augment seriously the flood
situation of our great rivers. This
condition makes it important for the
government to acquire as soon as pos-
sible such portions of this land as most
urgently require protection and are
valuable as sources of future timber
supply. With a view to meeting this
condition the Commission has recent-
ly recommended an appropriation of
$2,000,000 for the fiscal year 1924 for

Women Need More
and Better Blood
To be strong, well, equal to de-
mands of home, society, office or shop.
It is a fact proven by thousands of
grateful letters that Hood’s Sarsapa-
rilla is remarkably beneficial to young
or older women.
The most common ailments of
women drain and weaken the system
and sometimes result in anemia, ner-
vous weakness, general break-down.
Hood’s Sarsaparilla gives the blood
more vitality and better color, makes
strenger merves, and con. ibutes to
the length and enjoyment of life.

Record-Breaking Six Mon
Nash Leads the World in Motor Car Value
Our books just closed for the first six months
of 1922 show that our volume of passenger
car business ran far beyond that of the largest
previous half-year in Nash history.
"And the figures for the final three months of
the six reveal a gain over and above the best
previous quarter of 30%.
Only a car of exceptional value could possibly
have inspired such a pronounced and positive
preference on the part of purchasers.
The new Nash line includes models with four and six cylinder motors; open and closed
bodies; two, three, four, five, and seven passenger capacity; a price range from $965 to
$2390, f. o. b. factory.
