American Barbers in London.
In an east end police court the
other day a curious case of assault
was heard. A youngster, it appears,
was sent by his father to have his
hair cut. The barber, according to
the father, ran a pair of clippers all
over the boy's head except in front,
where he left an enormous fringe;
to make his displeasure the father
gave the barber a sound thrashing.
It is, however,not only in the East
End that barbers show a great ig
norance of their trade. In New York
or Paris it is the easiest thing cut
possible for a man to have it is
hardly too much to say that there
are only half a dozen places where
a barber knows his business. The
average barber has only one method
of cutting hair, which he invariably
carries out, irrespective altogether of
I the wishes of his customers.
I believe that if an American hair
dresser were to open a dozen shops
in different parts of London. he
would rapidly make his fortune. pro
vided, of course, he employed the
right sort of men to cut his custo
mers' hair.-London Tattler.

are said and mystic songs are sung
while the preparation is being made.
His manner of administering the

KiMPING PACE WITH DMANDS.
This Will Be Truly a Greater State
Fatr4-t Begins on October 26th
The State Agricultural and Mechani
cal Society purchased one hundred
acres of level land in the southern
part of Columbia last spring on which
to hold its annual South Carolina State
Fairs. This change was made neces
sary because the old grounds were too
small to accommodate the large num
ber of exhibitors and visitors who an
nually attended the great fairs, and
the buildings were no longer suitable
for the purposes for which they were
built. On the new grounds there is
room for everything and for every
body, and they are more conveniently
situated to the transportation lines
than the old grounds were. The dis
tance is less than a half mile from the
new union cepot, and the grounds are
reached by several fine roads and by
the street car lines, and no trouble will
be experienced in handling the large
crowds that are sure to visit Columbia.
Visitors will find everything brand new
this year. The buildings are all modern
in construction, large, airy, and com
fortable, all one story, with numerous
exits and wide aisles. One building is
devoted entirely to the handiwork of
women, and is set apart from the other
buildings so that the fair sex may en
joy themselves without interruption.
Another building is devoted to the agri
cultural exhibits and implements, and
another to the commercial exhibits.
Then, the poultry building occupies a
very prominent location and is very
large and roomy. The live stock barns
are so arranged th.a.t all visitors can
safely and conveni-ntly pass throurh
all of them and see sll the stock at a.Ly
time, and the management specially
requests that visitors avail themselves
of this opportunity.
The regulation mile race track is le
cated in the southern part of the
grounds, and is a beauty. The races
may be viewed from the Fair grounds
if it be preferred to do so, but a large.
comfortable grand stand is located at
the finish of the home stretch, where
the races can be viewed to much better
advantage and with more conifort. The
quarter stretch is not separated from
the grand stand. a-, was the case or.
the old track, but all are combined
under one inclosure. thus increasing
the social part of the meet.
The Midway or Pike is located near
the main entrances. and will be filled
with all the modern shows and attrac
tions, with wares from very part of
the world, and with people from every
part of the world. The athletic
grounds are located just opposite the
Midway, on the other side of the
entrance. Here will be played two
excellent games of football during
The railroads have offered very
cheap rates on account of the first
Greater State Fair, and they will run
most convenient schedules from all
sections of the State. In view of all
the attractions that have been ar
ranged for, there is no risk in saying
that the large crowd of last year will
be doubled this fall, and that this
great gathering will be more easily ac
commodated than in any former year.
Every one ought to attend the only
big fair and social event in the State.
