COMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 20 February 1914

co^s. A very remote antiquity is claimed for the oorob, which is of Egyptian origin. At first it was made of wood and ivorj', but it was used for adjusting rather Llian fastening the hair, a pin or bodkin being employed for the latter purpose. The Greeks and Romans, who dressed their hair with great care, used combs of boxwood, iron and bronze. The precious metals were also! required in their manufacture, as we may infer from the golden ones ascribed to thegoddesses ; butin no instance do we find their shell or horn ones mentioned in the classics. The use of the comb in euUinj* the hair i« referred to by Tlautus, b.c. 18*1. From specimens found at Pompeii, it is evident that combs with teeth on bulli sides were in use at a very early period.

It would appear th&t tha President of the Mormon Church has issued I manifesto denying that the Church teaches polygamy or plural marriages any longer. The negative way ir. which the manifesto is worded'would imply that the Church, whoso Jerusalem may be saifl to be Salt Lake City, did at one time teach the propriety, if not the necessity of polygamy, to its members, and that it has now seen, or been made to lee the error of its ways. In either case, it should be a matter of thankfulness all over the civilized world thst the^J Caucasian is playod out," to use the words of an Ameri can cynical humourist, and that the fight between the Mormons and the Federal Government has now reached its ultimate stage so far at least as polygamy is con cerned. The American nation is tolerant of ail sorts of creeds, and lias no special anti pathy to the peculiar views held by the "Lat...
