TO HIDE BALDNESS. HAIRS SEWN IN HUMAN SCALP. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 4 July 1914
TO HIDE BALDNESS. HAIRS SEWN IN HUMAN SCALP. A ,method of sewing hairs in the human scalp in cases of partial or total baldness has been successfully used in several instances by Dr. Szeokly at the hospital of Saint Ste. phane at Budapest. The number of hairs "planted" in the head of a patient, says "The Times," has been as many as 50,000, One hundred hairs are drawn through punctures in the scalp to every square centimetre, and as both ends are left free, the number is thus 200, or over 1000 to each square inch. Very fine gold wires are used, one five.hundredth of an inch in diameter, and fine, long hairs from a woman's head are at. tached at the middle to these. The gold loop or knot acts as an "ano chor," and after sterilisation is intro. duced into the subcutaneous tissue, where it Is slightly twisted, and holds the hair permanently in position, It is stated that 500 hairs can thus be introduced Into the scalp within three. quarters of an hour. Dr. Szekely Irhas designed a speci...

HOW THE SHIP CAME HOME, By ADAM M'CAY, in the Sydney "Sun."

Beaten andl banged, she staggeredl on; reeled with a drunkard's gait; tier irudder and half of her boats were gone; she heaved heir plunging weight Like the wallowing corpse of a lar pooned whale; was tipped and turned and tossed Till th...
