FEW WOMEN BARBERS
ti LEARNED CRAFTSMAN SAYS THAT
WOMEN CANT CUT HAIR.
A roaslble Explanation nf Why n Boy Does
Hot Like to Have lIU Mother Cot His
Hair—Experience of a Traveler Dispelled
by the Frenchman.
"Ono of my customers has just como
back from Europe," said the learned
French barber, "and hn has liern telling
me about a woman barber ho met in
Italy. 'Monsieur,' ho said to me, 'I shall
never forget her. I believe you aro a
good barber and havo tho right idea of
your mission, but really you cannot
hold a candle to her. 1 tell you, sho is
divino. When sho put the lather on my
face—l had my heard off then, yon
know—it was as though my face had
been bathed in noctar.
" 'When she drew tho razor across my
chock, I was thrillod with delight. And i
when sho put on tho bay rum and run
her' fingers through my hair, ah, then,
monsieur, I realized what it is to bo
caressed by an angel I Unfortunatoly
aho had a big brother who watched her
carefully, and so I had little chance to
talk to her. Hho was light and graceful
as a gazelle and absolutely beautiful.
Her clear, olive complexion, dark hair
and perfect features won mo nt it glance.
I haven't got over her fascination yet. If
I could havo her for a harbor always, I'd
havo my hair dressed overy other hour."
"I looked at him in pity. 'Monsieur,'
I said to him, 'I can easily understand
yonr devotion to this beauty, hut do not
mistako your lovo for tho woman for
your dovotion to tho artiste. If I were
not a rival for your afflictions, I would
strongly urgo-yon to continue to patron
izo her barber chair. There would be no
surer way of disenchanting you nnd mak
ing you learn to hato her.'
" 'What do you mean?' ho asked rnn.
" 'I mean, monsieur,' I replied, 'that,
With all dvto respect for your divinity,
there novor was a good woman barber,
and it is my firm conviction thero nover
will bo. Why? Monsieur, there are some
things whioh wo cannot explain. They
aro tho mysteries of life, far beyond all
onr philosophies. Why is one man
bright and another dull? Why are there
eptimiats*and pessimists? Why do some
lovo to linger overthoir Burgundy whilo
others rush through their dinners in IS
minutes? Why aro some women pretty
and others ugly? Are not these some of
tho unsolvablo riddles of our strnng<i ex
istence? Ah, monsieur, I wonld liko to
tell you why woman, gentle, lovely,
sweet woman, cannot make v good bar
ber, but it ia beyond mo, although I havo
atudicd the question much.'
"What I told him is true. Thero aro
women who can shave fairly well, hut
thero is none that can trim a beard or
cut hair properly. Yon may say thero
ore few inon who can do so. It is
true. I will not deny what is self evi
dent. Rut, monsieur, there aro some
men who rise to the occasion, whilo there
aro no women. They have hot the knack
which iB genius in t he barber, the paint
er, the sculptor. They cannot do that
nndeflnablesomethiliir which Rives style,
forco and character to tho hair nnd beard.
Even the women themselves, slow to ac
knowledge their inability to do anything
that man can do, recognize, this. Elan
Why do the host; WrNtV'rinrr drc-ISing
shops havo men to cut tho bangs nnd
dress tho hair of tho customers? And
What a difference thero is between tho
appoaranco of tho women whose hair is
dressed by tho men barbers and that of
the women who give themseh en oyer to
womon barbers! Let ns not dwell upon
this unpleasant subject.
"I have aeon many women barbers in
tho villages of Franco. They wero the
wives and daughters of deceased men
barbers. You see when the country bar
ber dies ho leaves nothing to his family,
and his old customers transfer their pat
ronage to tho wife or daughter, so that
the family may not starve. Really it
makes little difference with them, for
their skins aro so tough and leathery
that tho razor glances eft of them, nnd
nover having known what proper hair
cutting or beard trimmiug is t hey never
notico tho luck of it.
"I remember well 20 yonrs ago, shortly
after I camo to New York from Paris,
how two women barbers opened a shop
in thia city. Their sign rend, 'Women
do tho business here,' One was a Ger
man girl who had been a ballet donor
and know no more abont the barber's art
than—you will pardon nic, monsieur
yon do. The other was a Fronch girl. I
knew her and her family in Paris. Her
father kept a shop in one of the bnsy av
enues, and on .Saturday night his place
was crowded. His assistants wero his
wifo and two daughters. His wife, fixed
tho customers' hair, one daughter kepi
the curling irons hot, the Other daughter
lathorod the customers' faces, nnd he did
tho Hhaving, going from one chair to an
other. You hco, it was a common kind
of shop, patronized by tho bourgeoisie
only. Well, this girl who had set up in
business in Now York was tho girl who
had dqpc the latlitiruig in Paris.
"She hud POEM here to earn her Uving,
hnd met the e.x-ballel dancer, and the
two had cone luded that theyirright make
a hit as barbers. New York wasn't ns
big then ns it is now, and the citizens
Were greatly astonished at the idea of
■women barbers. A good many men went
to them for i'un. nnd the newspapers
ii.ado sport of ihem. Of course they
knew nothing of barbering, The French
girl camo to me and a; Iced mo to teach
her how to cut hair and trim beards, but
when I told her it would cost 5 francs,
for a lesson she changed her mind."
Tho learned barber paused, lost in
thought, for a moment. Then ho sighed
deeply.—New York Sun.
Out of Sight.
"Havo you v new kit*?" naked Willie
of Tommy, who w*s standing on tho
hilltop holding the end of a string.
"Course I have," replied Tommy,
"Is it a good one?"
