Tho Mexican was n bote noir to tho

was keeping half a dozen cows, and
running a small dairy farm. Ho seemed
to bo circumventing tho city ordi

keeping moro than ono cow, by dis

among his children. Tho bad featuro
about tho affair was that tho family

Richard Boldon was holding forth on tho beauty of a righteous life. Deeply
touched, James knelt with tho others 1n prayer.
Whilo ho was wiping away tho moisture from his eyes his glance wan
caught by tho minister's hat and coat In nn ante-room.
Romomborlng his father's remark abput getting along In this world by
going to church, Jnmes tiptoed softly to tho garments.
On his way out threo overcoats found tholr way across his arm. James
walked sanctimoniously away until ho reached Ono Hundred and Thirty-first
street and Madison avenuo.
There ho was stopped by Pntrolman Hart, who noticed a sheaf of sacrod
music protrudlngTrom tho coat thnt belonged to the minister.
"Stop'" said tho policeman. "Whoro are you going?"
"To church," answered James. "I sing In tho choir."
"But what aro you doing with thoso coats?"
"Taking thorn to give away to tho poor."
The policeman fingered them suspiciously and then ho looked moro
closely at tho music. ,
"ThiB music is in Latin," ho exclaimed. "Can you Blng it?"
"Sura," replied James, who knew sovoral Italians.
"Then sing It now," ordored tho policeman.
James was roluctant, declaring ho was not accustomed to singing Latin
on street corners. At length ho yielded to urgent prompting. Tho police
man listened as long as ho could.
"That'll do," ho said finally. "You'd bettor como along to tho station
house nnd resign from the choir."
Perhaps thoy will ask him to sing at the prison chapel.
No More Fur on Upper Lips; Barber's Swan Song
CHICAOO. "In tho courso ot a few years," sighed C. Albert Bucks, Chi
cago's most veteran barber, the other day, "whiskers will bo as extinct
as tho American buffalo. And so will barbers. Whiskers aro disappearing,
and thoy aro very seldom to bo mot,

Mr. Bucks has boen cutting whls-

his official swan song.
"Look," said ho, indicating tho
beardless face of n youthful customer
In tho chair beneath him. "Once tho
American youth wns a fur-bearing
animal, as luxurious on tho faco as
the German, Spaniard or tho Alaskan
yak. Ho used to wear whiskers all ovor, and few faces In those happy days
wero complete without at least ono set of trimmings."
"Havo a shampoo?" Inquired Barber Bucks, as his youthful customer
straightened out In his chair. The shampoo being spurned, Mr. Bucks con
tinued In a more melancholy strain:
"In thoso happy days a barber had 'to bo an artist. Thoro wore whiskers
and whiskers: somo grow sidoways, some up and down and somo on tho

"Will you maybe have your hair singed 7" inquired Barber Buck3 of tho
"I will not," answered, the youthful customer, promptly.
"A young man then was as proud of his whiskers as of his wife. Ho
used to como to his barber every day to have them treated scientifically.
Ho used to brush his hair from tho back out and make it stick from his
forehead llko this" (illustrating).
"But as the years passed I noticed that this was a bad cllmato for
whiskers. Thoy didn't seem to grow good. A man coming over from tho
