AH thing change except barbers, the
Ways of barbers, and the surroundings of
barbers. These never change. What one
experiences in a barber shop the first time
he enters one, is what he always experi
ences in barber shops afterward till the
end of his days. 1 got shaved this morn
ing as usual. A man approached the door
from Jones street as I approached it from
Maui a thing that always happens. I
harried up, but it was of no use ; he en
tered the door one little step ahead of me,
and I followed in on his heels and saw
him take the only vacant chair, the one
presided over by the best barber. It al
ways happens so. I sat down, hoping
that I might fall heir to the chair belong
ing to the better of the remaining two bar
bers, for he had already begun combing his
man's hair, while his comrade was not yet
quite done rubbing up and oiling his
customer's locks. I watched the proba
bilities with strong interest. When I saw
that No. 2 was gaining on No. 1, my in
terest grew to solicitude. When No. 1
stopped a moment to make change on a
batn ticket for a new-comer, and lost
ground in the race, my solicitude rose to
anxiety. When No. 1 caught up again,
and both he and his comrade were pulling
the towels away and brushing the powder
from their customers' cheeks, and it was
about an even thing which one would say
"Nextl" first, my very breath stood still
with the suspense. But when, at the final
culminating moment, No. 1 stopped to
pass a comb a couple of times through
his customer's eyebrows, I saw that he
had lost the race by a single instant, and I
rose indignant and quilted the f hop, to
keep from falling into the hands of No. 2 ;
for I have none of that enviable firmness
that enables a man to look calmly into the
yes of a waiting barber and tell him he
will wait for his fellow-barber's chair. I
stayed out fifteen minutes, and then went
back, hoping for better luck. Of course
all the chairs were occupied now, and
four men sat waiting, silent, unsociable,
distraught, and looking bored, as men
always do who are awaiting their turn in a
barber's shop. I sat down in one of the
iron-armed compartments of an old sofa,
and out in the time for a while, reading
the framed advertisements of all sorts of
quack nostroms for dyeing and coloring
the hair. Then I read the greasy names
on the private bay rum bottles; read the
names and noted the numbers on the pri
vate shaving cups in the pigeon-holes;
studied the stained and damaged cheap
prints on the walls, of battles, early Presi
dents, and voluptuous, recumbent sultanas,
and the tiresome and everlasting young
girl putting her grandfather's spectacles
on ; execrated in my heart the cheerful
canary and the distracting parrot that few
barVr shops are without. Finally, I
eearc'i out the least dilapidated of the
list ye it's illustrated papers that littered
the foal center-table, and conned their un
jusiiluole misrepresentation of old forgot
ten events. At last my turn came. A
voice said " Next!" and I surrendered to
No. 2, of course. It always happens so.
I said, meekly, that I was in a
hurry, and it affected him as strong
ly as if he had never heard it. He shoved
up my head and put a napkin un
der it. He ploughed his fingers into my
collar and fixed a towel there. He ex
plored my hair with his claws and sue-
tested that it needed trimming. I said I
id not want it trimmed. He explored
agaia and said it was pretty long for the
present style better have a little taken
off; it needed it behind, especially. I said
I had had it cut only a week before. He
yearned over it reflectively a moment, and
then asked, with a disparaging manner,
who cut it I came back at him promptly
with a "You did I" I had him there.
Then he fell to stirring up his lather and
regarding himself in the glass, stopping
now and then to get close and examine his
cnin critically or torture a pimple, l hen
he lathered one side of my face thoroughly,
and was about to lather the other, when a
dog tight attracted bis attention, and he
ran to the window and stayed and saw it
out, losing two shillings on the result in
bets with the other barbers, a thing
which gave me great satisfaction.
He finished lathering, meantime
getting the brush into my mouth only
twice, and then began to rub in the suds
with his hand : and as he now had his
head turneddiscussing the dog-fight with
the other barbers, he naturally shoveled
considerable lather into my mouth with
out knowing it, but 1 did. He now began
to sharpen his razor on an old suspender,
and was delayed a good deal on account of
a controversy about a cheap masquerade
ball he had figured at the night betore, in
red cambric and bogus ermine, as some
kind of a king. He was so gratified with
being chaffed about some damsel whom he
had smitten with his charms, that he used
every means to continue the controversy,
by pretending to be annoyed at the chaff
ings of his fellows. This matter begot
more surveyings of himself in the glass,
and he put down his razor and brushed
his hair with elaborate care, plastering an
inverted arch of it down on his forehead,
accomplishing an accurate "part " behind,
and brushing the two wings forward over
his ears with nice exactness. It the mean
time the lather was drying on my face, and
apparently eating into my vitals. Now
he began to shave, digging his fingers into
my countenance to stretch the skin, mak
ing a handle of my nose now and then,
bundling and tumbling my head this way
and that, as convenience in shaving de
manded, and "hawking" and expectorating
pleasantly all the while. As long as he
was on the tough sides of my face I did not
suffer; but when he began to rake, and
rip, and tug at my chin, the tears came.
I did not mind his getting so close down
to me ; I did not mind his garlic, because
all barbers eat garlic, I suppose ,- but there
was an added something that made me fear
that he was decaying inwardly while still
allSfc, and this gave me much concern. He
now put his finger into my mouth to assist
him in shaving the corners of my upper
lip, and it was by this bit of circumstantial
evidence that I discovered that a part ot
his duties in the shop was to clean the
kerosene lamps. I had often wondered in
an indolent way whether the barbers did
that, or whether it was the boss. About
this time I was amusing myself trying to
guess where he would be most likely to cut
me this time, but he got ahead of me and
sliced me on the end of the chin before I
had got my mind made up. He immediately
sharpened his razor he might have done it
before. I do not like a close shave, and
would not let him go over me a second
time. I tried to get him to put up his ra
zor, dreading that he would make for the
side of my chin, my pet tender spot, a
place which a razor cannot touch twice
without making trouble. But he said he
only wanted to just smooth off one little
roughness, and in that same moment he
slipped his razor along the forbidden
ground, and the dreaded pimple-signs of a
close shave rose up smarting and answered
to the calL Now he soaked his towel in
bay rum, and slapped it all . over my face
nastily; slapped it over as if a human
being ever yet washed his lace m that
way. Then he dried it by slapping with
the dry part of the towel, as if a human
being ever dried his face in such a fashion ;
but a barber seldom rabs you like a Chris
tian. Next he poked bay rum into the
cut place with his towel, then choked the
wound with powdered starch, then soaked
it with bay rum again, and would have
gone on soaking and powdering it for
evermore, no doubt, if I had not rebelled
and begged off, He powdered my whole
face now, strightened me up and began
to plow my hair thoughtfully with
his hands and examine his fingers crit
ically. Then he suggested a sham
poo, and said my hair needed it badly,
very badly. I observed that I had
shampooed it myself very thoroughly
in the bath yesterday. I "had him" again.
He next recommended some of "Smith's
Hair Glorifier," and offered to sell me a
bottle. I declined. He praised the new per
fume, "Jones's Delight of the Toilet,"
and proposed to sell me some of that I
declined again. He tendered me a tooth
wash atrocity of his own -invention, and
when I declined, offered to trade knives
with me. He returned to business after
the miscarriage of this last enterprise,
sprinkled me all over, legs and all, greased
my hair in defiance of my protest against
it, rubbed and scrubbed a good deal of it
oit by the roots, and combed and brushed
the rest, parting it behind and plastering
the eternal inverted arch of hair down on
my forehead, and then, while combing my
scant eyebrows and defiling them with
do made, strung out an account of the
achievements of a six-ounce black-and-tan
terrier of his till I heard the whistles
blow for noon, and knew I was five
minutes too late for the train. Then he
snatched away the towel, brushed it
lightly about my face, passed his comb
through my eyebrows once more, and
gay ly sang out "Nextl"

The Sky as an Agriculturist.
Human ingenuity has utilized air, earth
and water. It has made the thunderbolt
its light-footed page, and set the very sun
itself to draw pictures for the benefit and
delight of mankind. Science, with deft
and subtile hand, and mysterious power
works on unceasingly, and from out the
laboratories and dingy studies of Ihciarmu
come from time to time wondrous revela
tions which only tell of still greater
depths to be fathomed and loftier heights
to be scaled.
The last curious revelation from the
scientific world is made through the Phil
adelphia Pres, which says that for ten
years Gen. A. J. Pleasanton has been con
ducting scientific experiments in regard
to the chemical powers of tho sunlight,
or more especially in reference to the
magnetic, electric, and thermic wonders of
the violet ray and its effect upon the
growih of vegetation and animals. Bo
long ago as 1(H6, Sir John Newton dis
covered that the vioiet ray of the prism
had the greatest indice of refraction and
Sir John Herschel found that the chemi
cal power of the solar iy is the greatest
in the violet ray. Taking these facts with
the fact of the permanent and all-prevaih
ing blue color of the sky, so varying ii
intensity of color according to season and
latitude, General Pleasanton made a num
ber of practical experiments, which have
produced the most wonderful effects. He
built a grapery, causing the violet rays, by
means of colored glass, to fall upon the
erowimr vines. The young vines were
set out, and at once there commenced a
most wondorful irrowtn which has con
tinued up to the present time, a period of
some ten years. 1 he nrst year some oi
the vines grew more than forty ftet in
leDgth, and the second year they were
covered with bunches of grapes, bearing
some twelve hundred pounds. Ihis de-
qelopment astonished all who saw it, ci
well it might, when we are reminded that
in grape-growing countries, where grapes
nave ueen grown ior cemurics, mat a
period of time from five to six years will
elapse before a single bunch of grapes can
be produced from a young vine. Such a
growth in seventeen months was never
seen before. The next year these vines
produced some two thousand pounds of
grapes, ana iney nave continued to Dear
large crops of fruit without intermission
for the last nine years.
An experiment upon pigs was made
with a very gratifying result, and it was
found that those which had been subjected
to the influence of violent roys developed
faster, and weighed more than those ex
posed to the ordinary sunlight A most
extraordinary effect was produced upon a
puny Alderney bull c&lf, which was
thought to be too feeble to raise. When
put under the violent rays, in less than
twenty-four hours a marked change took

been applied to poultry with great succtss.
una can scarcely conceive oi mo im
measurable value of this discovery to ag
ricultural people. And we know no good
season why this influence may not be
brought to bear upon the human family
for the invigorating of the constitutions of
invalids; for the rearing and development
of sick and feeble children. Already sun
baths as they are called, have been intro
duced into some ot our neaiin estaDiisn-
ments, Dr. Angell, of New York, having
one on the top oi his lurcisn batn, on
Madison avenue. We must now have vio
let baths, and, in time, doubtless architects
will so arrange the introduction of these
mixed rays of light into our houses that
the occupants may derive the greatest
benefit from this inflaencs. It has long
been known that the red ray or light is
heating, the yellow illuminating, and the
blue or violet in a remarkable degree
stimulating to the development of vegeta
ble life, bays General fleasanton :
" From this discovery we can imagine
the immense influence which the intensely
blue color of the sky in the equatorial re
gions has and always has had in coniunc
t on with the sun's white light, and the
heat and moisture of those regions, upon
the development there of vegetable life.
This intensely blue color or the sky in the
Arctic regions may also serve to explain
the exuberance ot animal lite there.
"Humboldt said that he had never seen
the sky's blue so intense as in the tropics
and under the equator. Arctic navigators
have also declared that in the Arctic re
gions the intensity of the blue color of the
6kv is amazing.
" On no part of our planet is the de
velopment of vegetable life so grand, so
various, so excessive, and so constant as
in the tropics and in the equatorial re
gions. While this wonderful display of
vegetation is observed in these regions,
the exuberance of animal life and the
rapid growth of vegetable life in the Arctic
reirions are said to be unequal ed in any
other part ot the world.

Mb. Barrt, in his work on Russia in
1S70, tells a story of the time when slave
ry was an" institution in that country : A
certain ironmaster caused a man who had
offended him to be locked up in an iron
cage, and kept him confined in it for a
length of time. At last, while he was ab
sent on a journey, the case of his wretched
prisoner came to the knowledge of the
Governor ot the province, lhe Governor
caused the man, rage and all, to be brought
to the government town, and invited the
tyrannical ironmaster to dinner. After
dinner was over, the Governor sent for a
quail in a wooden cage, and offered to sell
it to his guest for 10,000 roubles. The
offer being treated as a joke, the Gov
ernor said" he had a more valuable bird to
to sell, and told his servants to brin it in.
Folding doors flew open and the iron cage
with its miserable captive was set down
before the astonished guest " Now I" said
the Governor, " what do you think of that
for a quail ? But this is a very expensive
bird, I want 20,000 roubles for him." "All
right," said the alarmed proprietor, . I
will buy this one and send it down to my
works without the cage, and your messen
ger shall bring back the amount" The
matter was thus pleasantly settled, and the
company adjourned to their panirosses and

Care of Horse and Ox Teams.
Mt horses, when I look after and drive
them myself, are always fat and in good
health, and do as much as any others ; and
so it is with many a careful teamster or
master. The reason is, they never " over
do" them. To exemplify this we will just
suppose it necessary to drive a team,
heavily loaded, two miles only, and that the
roads are bad. One driver does the dis
tance in three-quarters of an hour, and the
team is not distressed ; another does it in
ten minutes or quarter of an hour less,
never breathing his horses, tearing along
the whole way, and the team reaches the
end blowing and sweating profusely, and
very probably quivering at the shoulder
and flank in short, "over-done," and only
a few minutes saved all of which time,
and more, is consumed in recuperation,
and much more mischief done than could
be undone with a week's care. Horses
and oxen, like ourselves, sometimes feel
unwell, but they are unfortunately unable
to tell us so. How often do we feel unable
to work quite as hard and as freely one
day as we have been in the habit of doing.
It is true we suffer no great pain, and we
can eat pretty well; but we do not feel
right, and work is a severe labor, and if we
are forced on, serious illness is often the
consequence ; to it is with horse or ox
teams. These are at times affected the
same way, and an observant owner or
driver, who looks after the team himself,
will quickly detect it, and ease their labor
accordingly. From seemingly trifling
symptoms (unlikely to be noticed by any
but the person always entrusted with the
auimals), any 6uch ailing will be at once
detected. Twenty four hours' care
will probably see a material amendment,
and next day all will be right as usual, pro
vided the necessary care be used. If other
wise treated, a- week will often not
suffice to restore the balance of health and
In this department much error has crept
in. The habit of ignorant hired men is
often to make the time requisite for giving
the food to suit their own convenience
rather than the necessities or health of
their horses. When brought to the stable,
it is a common custom to first take the
team to the water trough, and allow them
to distend their stomachs with an immense
quantity of well water. This is bad as
can be. The horses want water, it is true,
but it is best to give only a few mouthfuls
to refresh them, then give a little hay, and
in a quarter of an hour grain of any kind
can be given in almost any reasonable
Quantities, without any chance of injury.
After eating water may be given with im
punity to any extent Where horse teams
are employed jointly with a number of
men, such as railroad work, or the like,
they must be fed and ready again to go to
work when the dinner hour is over ; and
for this meal, under these circumstances.

if ever so heated, provided there is not too
much grain among the hay.
A very intelligent friend of mine, who
used this kind of feed, always took nose
bags to the field with him, and gave his
horses ten minutes feed and rest, at
medium interval between breakfast and
dinner, and the same at about half-past
four in the afternoon, no team did more
work than his, or on less feed.
Cavalry horses are alwavs snarinzlv fed
both as to hay and oats, and any horse
that cannot live on the regular allowance
is at once sold as a " cast horse." This,
however, very rarely happens. Generally
the feed, although scarcely more than half
as much as is ordinarily fed, will amply
suffice to keep the animal in high health
and condition. Men and teams often, and
indeed generally, eat far more than is
absolutely requisite for them ; they cannot
assimilate such an immense quantity as is
sometimes given. A large portion of the
excess passes undigested through the ani
mal; or, it digested, unassimuated
Chemical analysis has proved this to be
the case over and again. There is a cer
tain demand made by the system for food
to supply the wear and tear caused by
labor. When this is supplied, no more can
be done. If the animal fail in condition,
rest or restoration to health is absolutely
necessary. jh. JS. Farmer.
Green Vegetable, etc., as Manure.
In order to sustain or increase the fer
tility of the soil, a compensation must be
made to it for the ingredients absorbed
and carried away by the crops which are
raised on it The practice of housefeed
ing stock has a tendency to increase the
productiveness of land by providing a
large quantity of manure ot the best qua!
lty. in addition to barnyard, which can
not be expected to reach more than a part
of the tarm every year, there are various
kinds of mineral and artificial manures
which are very useful for supplying at
least a part of the ingredients which are
necessary to sustain the productiveness of
A great deal may be done toward in
creasing the fertility of land by a judicious
use ot green manures; such as clover,
buckwheat etc. Changing from tillage to
clover or grass, giving the land rest, and
then breaking up, increases the fertility
of the soil, for the roots and stems of the
clover, when decomposed, give back to the
soil a large part of the various substances
which they had extracted from it One of
the great advantages arising from this
mode of manuring is that the crude in
gredients of the soil have been elaborated
by the plants and brought into a suitable
condition for affording nutriment to the
ensuing crop. Green weeds, potatoe
vines, decaying vegetables should be ad
ded to the manure heap, and converted
into manure. Plowing stubble land in the
fall and allowing it to remain in fallow all
winter, is a very effective means of chang
ing weeds, grass, and stubble into useful
manure. Wtttem iCurai.
Nxar akin to the negligence by which
trees are suffered to smother and deform
themselves with superfluous wood, is the
custom almost universal in this country
of allowing them to carry an unreasona
ble quantity of fruit This over-cropping,
indeed, is one of the greatest, as it is one
of the most obstinate evils that horticul
tural science is struggling to eradicate.
Under the various artihclal influences to
which fruit trees in gardens and orchards
are subjected, they otten overbear. The
best cultivators, however, make it an in
flexible rule not to allow any tree to carry
so much fruit as to necessitate a propnine
up of the branches. But the number of

lhe operation seems, it is true, to de
mand a certain sort of courage that only
veteran cultivators can command.
To cut off the outermost of the two or
three clusters on every shoot of a grape
vine, to pull half, or more, of the speci
mens from a fine Bartlett or Seckel pear
tree, oppressed by the weight of its own
generosity, requires nerve, such as can
hardly be expected from raw recruits in
the business. Still, so extremely satisfac
tory are the results of this operation, that,
wherever it has been resolutely begun, it
never fails to be followed up in future
In the performance of this, as of other
work among trees, a little experience
proves more serviceable than a great deal
of teaching. As a general rule, supported
by the practice, as stated above, of the
best cultivators, no tree should be per
mitted to retain any more of its fruit than
it can carry to maturity without being
tied up, or supported in any way. This,
where trees are overloaded, necessitates a
removal of from one fourth to three
fourths, as the case may require, of the
young specimens left growing after the
fall of the blossoms. The superfluous
fruit ought to be picked off in June or
July. At the time of this first thinning,
however, it is advisable to leave about
double the quantity on the tree that it is
intended shall ripen there. Going over
the trees a second time, in August, the
number of specimens should be finally re
duced so as to complete the operation,
taking care to select for removal all fruits
that are wormy, deformed, badly situated,
and unpromising. i
On dwarfs, and smallish standards, such
a thinning out with the fingers and
thumb-nail, as the most convenient imple
mentsmay be rapidly performed ; but to
go over a full grown apple or pear tree in
this way is a s'ow and rat her tedious labor;
still, where the cultivation has not been
neglected in other respects, such thinning,
in most cases, will pay, inasmuch as,
properly done, it never fails to secure a
fair crop of first quality, instead of a little
larger quantity of very inferior fruit But
the effect of the operation on the future
health and vigor or trees is of much more
importance than any such improvement of
their products ; for a tree that has once
"borne itself to death" as the phrase
forcibly expresses it very rarely, and
only after a number of years, if ever, re
covers from the consequences of its ex
hausted vitality. Cor. Journal of Horti-culture.

The Rural Jfeie Yorker says : A mixture
of two parts of nitric acid to one of mu

should be applied to the warts with a small

taken not to get acid on the flesh, as it
will make a sore. Saleratus will coun

Glue Kettles. A few holes, bored in a
glue kettle, in a horizontal line near the

enter the kettle, and so prevent the glue
from solidifying on the side. The holes

is handy to be able to pour glue out of one
side without wasting it

if we know of a better plan of driving

will need very careful cleansing or work
will be impossible. A better plan is to wet
the point of the nail on the, end of the
tongue ; this will make it drive easily, and
will iiot interfere with the hammer.

Damp Walls. Anything that will pro
mote health and well-being among the
operatives of our over crowded manufac
tories and workshops, is worthy or" note,
and the remedy for an evil as common as
it is dangerous, seems specially to deserve
attention. Damp walls to work rooms are
among the most fruitful causes of disease
among laborers of both sexes, and we
deem it not out of place to give the man
ner of a device, simple and easily adopted
to prevent the effects thus resulting from
bad building. The mode of protection
adopted, is to boil together powdered sul
phur and water for half an hour, in the
proportion of one pound of sulphur to
two quarts of water. The mixture thus
formed should be applied with a brush,
like ordinary paint, upon the walls affected,
and the result will be, as a rule, to entirely
prevent the unhealthy and unpleasant ooz
ing forth of moisture. While buildings
should never be so constructed as to admit
of dampness, yet it is most important that
being unable to prevent existing evils, we
should have the means of remedy, and the
simple bit of advice just given, we hope,
may be adopted in some of the many in
stances where it is likely to work a bene
fit American Builder.
How to Make Dutch Cheese.

the hands as fine as can be done, then
press down in an earthern vessel, and let
it stand a few days till it becomes thor
oughly heated. Don't omit to stir it
throughout every day, afterward pressing
it down, so that every portion of it may
become heated alike ; now take it ont and

she can add a small quantity of butter, it
makes it richer ; but it is not positively
necessary, as it is very good without it ;
then take a deep basin or basins, (accord

the cheese) grease them well, press them
even full of cheese and set them in a stove
or oven and bake till slightly brown on

mode of making it is equally as good as

For the bottom take a ring for the center

one for handles, tie at top and bottom of
the basket, leaving one end long enough
to go across the bottom through the rings.
The two handles will cross each other at
the centre of the middle ring, also where
they come together at the top, and will
need a hook of large round wire, bent each
