What the Barber Said.
"To shave a man at home," said a
barber, "I charge a quarter, but to
shave a dead man half a dollar is the
price. About a tenth of my private
customers are women.

women every day. I don't know why
it Is some women have beards. It is
very distressing to them, and they
shave close and often. It is their only
remedy. The electric needle Is no good
for them, you see, because their beards
are so thick that it would take a life
time for the operator to go over their
faces and pluck each hair out sepa
rately, as must be done in the electric
al depilitating system.
"Beards only grow on old women.
They are one of the feminine disfigure
ments of age. It is the same trouble, I
suppose. as that which affects old men.

growths of hair in their nostrils and
ears that must be cut out weekly, and
their eyebrows if not regularly trim

GIVE TIS A TRIAL
THE GRAND SCHEMER
A CRISIS COMES AND MAJOR CROFOOT
MEETS IT JOYFULLY.
His Frowning Landlrdy Presents
Her Badly Belated Bill, and She Is
Promptly Taken Into the Universal
(Copyright, 100, by C. :. Lewis.]
Major Crofcot, grand promoter and
general organizer, had observed signs
of a coming calamity around his board
ing house. Ile hadn't sat down with
pencil and paper and figured that it
was three months since he had paid his
landlady a dollar, but in a dim, unde
fined way be put it at about three. Ile
hadn't taken half an hour to wonder
how much longer things could run on
tick, but hoped it might be for three
months more. He was living on in a
blissful state of certain uncertainty,
finding fault with the steak and sug
gesting a change of puddings, when
the demeanor of the landlady warned
him that a crisis was at hand. Ile was
the man for the crisis. It was at the
dinner table that the notes of the
I: ao J,,'J
"WHY SPEAK OF DOLLARS?"
warning bell struck his ear, and when
he had finished his meal he rose up be
fore the other boarders with the digni
ty of a millionaire and observed:
"Madam the landlady, if not too
much trouble I wish you would come
to my room this evening for your
check. I like to balance my books once
The shot told. The landlady's frown
changed to a smile as soft as jelly, and
the three or four boarders who had
been hinting that the major was a
deadbeat and would bilk the house
felt a large feeling of awe steal over
them. Half an hour later the woman
knocked at the major's door and found
him seated with his checkbook in front
"My dear woman." he began. as he
motioned for her to sit down, "your
trust and confidence in me are some
thing sublime-really sublime. I am
not a man given to emotion, but in this
case-in this case"
"You owe me three months' room
rent and board," she said as he paused
to find other words.
"That is the case exactly, as I found
to my surprise in footing my ledger
this afternoon. Yes. For three long
months I have occupied this room and
sat at your table, and you have not
even hinted at filthy lucre in payment
I don't exactly remember what Cleo
patra did to win undying fame, but if
she reposed the sublime confidence in a
man that you have reposed In me I
don't wonder that her name Is engrav
en on the scrolls of time forever more."
"I have been trying to catch you for
the last month, but you have dodged
me," replied the landlady with exceed
"In other words, madam, 1 have been
too wrapped up in gigantic specula
tions to remember that I owed you a
few dollars. However, the fact re
mains that you did not worry over my
"But I have worried. I have been
afraid you'd get your trunk out and
'The fact remains, madam," repeat
ed the major as he nibbled at the pea
holder and looked into vacancy-"the
fact remains that you have not wor
ried. You knew and felt that the debt
was safe. You might have worried
about others, but about Major Crofoot
-never. Ah, it md.es me feel better
toward the whole world to have a per
son trust me thus! Such trust! Such
confidence! Such childish faith in the
midst of universal wickedness!"
"And now you will pay me for 13
weeks at $S per week?" she queried as
she laid the bill before him.
"My dear woman," he replied as he
rose up to walk about, "why specify
the flight of time? Why speak of dol
lars? Thirteen weeks at $8 per week
makes a total of $104, of course. but
should we thus brutalize sentinent?
Let me say that you have trusted me.
Let me say that you have put me down
as a man of honor'. Then let me repay
you for your confidence rather than for
your room and board. We will say
that I hand you a check for $200."
"You don't mean it, major," she ex
claimed, with a catch of her breath.
"I sit down thus. I fill in a cheek for
$200. so. I tear It off and hand it to
you, and with it goes a deeper feeling
than I can explain. If there are tears
in my eyes, you will please excuse
"I knew you would pay. I told them
you were no deadbeat," said the over
come landlady as she held the check in
"And your confidence was not mis
placed. Let me call your attention to
the fact that this check is made out to
the order of J1. Jordan. Hie is the treas
urer of the corporation, you know."
"But what corporation?"
"The Universal Musical company,
my friend. The organization was per
fected last week, all the necessary cap
ital paid in. and we shall begin work
next Monday. Having an instinctive
feeling that you trusted me and wish

ing to prove my gratitude in something
beyond words, I have reserved $10,000
worth of stock for you at ground floor
figures. A dividend of 50 per cent on
this stock, which is a low estimate,
brings you in $5,000 per year. All you
need do is to sit with folded hands."
"But I don't want stock in any of
your companies," she protested. "I've
got to have money to run my house."
"The object of the company," he ex
plained, "is to provide music for the
world at the cheapest possible price,
and in supplying music we supply sen
timent, raise the social standard and
make the whole world happier and bet
ter. We also make a saving in provi
sions and fuel. A man with a fiddle
will sit for hours and never know
whether a room is hot or cold. A wom
an who is giving Mozart a twist on the
piano wants neither dinner nor supper.
Give a boy a mouth organ, and he will
not ask for bread and butter as long as
he has wind enough left to blow. It is
the scheme of my life, and millions of
profit will soon be rolling in."
"But about this check?" she insisted.
"A great scheme and in many ways a
noble enterprise. Let us take a city
block, for instance. We will say there
are 200 families on the block. The
Universal supplies those families with
pianos or organs, zithers, fiddles, harps,
hand organs, mouth organs, brass
bands, bugles, fifes and drums. From
7 o'clock in the morning to 10 o'clock at
night there is music. No one has time
to quarrel or get drunk. No one stops
to eat or wonder whether it's cold or
hot. Music evokes sentiment, love,
pity, charity. Human nature is ele
vated and purified, and the rent for the
various instruments comes rolling In as
fast as two men can count the dollars.
My dear woman, you see"
"But this check."
"You will take It to J. Jordan and de
posit it as security for your stock, and
you will order two pianos, three fid
dles, four harps, two drums and a set
of bagpipes for this house. The effect
on your boarders will be"
"But I thought you were going to
square up," exclaimed the landlady.
"What do I know about your company
or stocks? Whenever I present my
bill, you always dodge and twist."
"In case you do not wish to use the
check to secure stock you can ask Mr.
Jordan to indorse It over to me. I
will then indorse it to the vice presi
dent, he will indorse it to the secre
tary, and the secretary will indorse it
to you. You will then have to be iden
tified at the bank. It will take some
few days or weeks to obtain the mon
ey. but it is a mere question of time.
Meanwhile things go over. Ask your
self if it is not your duty to help us ele
vate the moral tone of society? Ask
yourself if it is not better to have $5.
000 a year dividends than to be slaving
your life away In a boarding house.
"Can't you give me $10 on account?"
asked the landlady in desperation as
she put the check on the table.
"What! Discount my own paper aft
er your sublime con.tilence in me?" he
exclain:ed. "Never, my dear woman,
never! You mst be paid in full. In
deed, you have been paid in full any
how, and now it only remains for you
to leave me to balance up my cash
book and write 15 or 20 business let
ters of a pressing nature. You trusted
me, and you have your reward. Don't
fail to be identitied at the bank. If
there should be any trouble, just call
on me. And now good night and pleas
ant dreams to you."
"Major, I want this room tomorrow,"
called the landlady when she found
herself outside the door.
"And you'll have to go!"
But she talked to the silence of the
grave. M. QUAD.

THE SECRET SERVICE.
Tiresome Work of Reading a Ci

Some governments make use of nu

a mixture of numerals and words, and
yet others exclusively words. Of course,
the only problem that needs solution
in dispatches of this kind is to ascer
tain the key number or key word.
When that is accomplished, the re
mainder is easy, though generally very
tedious. Indeed it is difficult to conceive
of a more tiresome, head splitting piece
of work than either to cipher or deci

words. The writer talks from sel and
Some governments change the key
word or key numerals with each dis
patch, according to a settled arrange
ment. Others, again, change it every
month. Sometimes it is placed at the
beginning of the dispatch, at other
times at the end. To the uninitiated a
dispatch of this kind will appear in the
nature of a Chinese puzzle, but to an
expert cryptographer the deciphering
of a government code dispatch Is mere
Occasionally the dispatch will appear
a mere jumble of consonants without
any meaning, while at other times it
will be so ciphered as to contain -sensi
ble and plausible sentences, the mean

It was a code of this kind that was
used by the Spanish secret agents in
this country during the war with
Spain, and the clever staff of secret

short time possessed of a key to the
cipher in question.-New York Tribune.
A KAFFIR "SMOKER."
The Native Women Are Enthusiasti
Devotees of the Weed.
In South Africa the native woman
smokes incessantly. Your native serv
ant smokes as she cooks and as she
washes. The tobacco she likes is rank.
The dainty cigarette an English or
Russian lady of fashion enjoys, smok
ed through a quill, so that no nicotine
can stain either teeth or fingers, would
be sneered at by a Kaffir. "Give me a
pipe and something in it I can taste,"
is in effect what she says.
Thc men Kafdirs are beyond tobacco.
They smoke something so vehement
that it makes them cough and splutter,
lose their breath, choke and sneeze to
an alarming degree. They like snuff,
too, and are fond of offering and tak
ing pinches of it ("schniff" they call it)
when they meet and visit one another.
Regarding tobacco as too mild for
their taste, the Kaffirs take another
ved and smoke that. They proceed
to arrange a smoking party, by squat
tng on the ground and getting ready
their "pipe," a cow horn with a thin
tube In it inserted half way down at
right angles to the horn. The end of
the tube is in a basin, and itis from it
that the smoker sucks the strong stuff
that makes him incapable of anything
but a series of coughs and chokes for
some time after he has had his turn
at the pipe, which is passed around
from man to man, until a perfect cho
rus of coughs rends the air.
The tobacco the Boers guloke looks
like poor tea and is peculiar in flavor,
yet Englishmen who have become used
to it acquire such a taste for it that
they never ask for any other kind.
