When life mid liherty wi re liroie.'lit to light,

And life eternal inhered In.
Three year ao, how abort the mce,
We ort'anl.ed, 'n thill dear place

We felt encoiiriieil, yet we feared to apeak

Who were our friend, we carrely knew,
And without help, u hut could we do'
Only thi: could hope anil pray

A commission was sent by the company
lu (Jermany to inquire into the habits of

Cutting a Boy'a Hair.
Detroit Freo I'reaa.
There is no uso in fouling nronnil
about it. When a boy's hair has be
coiiiu long, nnd bleached and scraggy,
and full of btiiTS and feathers, it is
time to cut il an 1 1 the incvitablo must
'I'be buy doesn't want it cut, of eour.se.
No one ever had a speaking acquain
tance with a buy who thought the timo
had arrived when ho could part wilii
enough hair to stun" n sofa pillow.
They tniwt be coerced, nnd kind and
broad promises are thrown away. Co
ercion is the only method.
J let my buy run about so lung, and
then when I get a spare half day 1 play
barber. TIhto is no appeal from my
decision. Whet) I coiiii! out flat-footed
1 carry my point, or die, trying.
"Young in, in, you can get ready to
have your hair cut."
"No, sir, - now!"
"With a huz.-stiw?"
"Yes, if the shears won't do it."
"Won't you draw blood?"
"I may have to."
"If you won't cut my hair I'll bring
in 'ntitVwouil and coal to last all winter,
nnd I iMin't ak fur a light when I go
"Coine out here and make ready."
I never take any chances on a buy. I
have an old chair bolted on the Hour,
and then I bolt the boy to tho chair. I
lix him so that, ho can move neither
hand nut- foot, put a soft gag in his
mouth to prevent a neighborhood alarm,
and begin work. The first step toward
cutting a boy's hair is to put in ten
minute's hard work with a curry comb.
If he hasn't been running around loose
over two or Ihreo years this tool will bo'
suflicietitto take out the snarls, buttons,
and articles previously mentioned. A
basket is plnrd behind the chair for
them to drop into, and they can be dee.-'
orated with fancy pictures and made- to
servo as parlor ornaments.

No one should he less than half an

hurry the job will result in over-looking
a lot, of shingle nails, the missing
screw-driver, or suiueihing which may
damage his Sunday hat. My average
is thirty-live minutes, and I have only
two minutes left after being able to see
that he has a scalp. It then takes an
additional ten minutes to look him over

An Entertaining Companion.
Once, during a lour in the Western
States, writes Mr. Florence, the actor,
nn incident occurred in which I rather
think I played the victim. We were en
route from Cleveland to Cincinnati, tm
eight or ten hour journey. After seeino;
my wife comfortably seated, I walked
forward to the smoking-car, and, taking
the only unoccupied place;, pulled out
my cigar-case and oll'ered a cigar to my
next neighbor. He was about GO years
of age, gentlemanly in appearance, and
of it somewhat reserved and bashful
mien. Ho gracefully accepted tho ci

giiged in conversation.
"Are you going far West ?" 1 inquired.
"Merely so far as Columbus." (Col

Ohio. "And you, sir?'1 ho added, in
terrogatively. "1 am journeying toward Cincinnati,

to-morrow night." I was a young man
then, and fund of avowing; yiy profes

am confident, wo havo met before.
"I have acted in almost every State
in the Union," said I, half patronizing
ly. "Mrs. Florence and I aro pretty
genf'rally known throughout the North
west." "Hless nte!" said the .stranger, in sur
prise, "I have seen you act many times,
sir, and the recollection of Mrs. Flor

songs, is still fresh in my memory."
"Do you propose remaining long in

Thus we chatted for an hour or two.
At length my attention was attracted
by a little, red-faced man, with small,
sharp eyes, who sat immediately oppo
site, us, "and amused himself by sucking
the knob of a large walking-slick, which
ho carried caressingly in his hand. Ho
had more than once glanced at nu; in a
knowing manner, and now and then
given a sly wink and shake of tho head
at me, as much as io say, "Ah, old fel
low, I know you, too."
These attentions were so marked that
I finally asked my companion if ho had
"That, man acts like a lunatic," said
I, suto rucc.
"A poor half-witted fellow, possibly,"
replied my fellow-traveler. "In your
travels through the country, however,
Mr. Florence, you must have often met
sin-h strange characters."
We. bad now reached Cresline, tho
dinner station, mid I asked him if ho
would join Mrs. Florence and myself at
dinner. This produced an extraordin
ary series of grimaces and winks
from the red-faced party aforesaid.
The invitation to dinner was politely

the smoking-car and proposed that
the gentleman should accompany mo
to see Mrs. Florence. The pro

car into roars of laughter.
"No, thank you," said my friend, 'I
feel obliged to you for the courtesy, but
I prefer the smoking-car. Have you

"Yes," said I, producing another

My friend rose with some difliculty,
dragging his hitherto concealed feet

Anecdotes of Sumner.

JlfTect of tho Electric Light on Vision
Prolessor Cohn, of Hreslau, has been
lately making Vonie experiments with
the electric ligflt on the eyes of a num
ber of persons, for the purpose of test
ing its special influence, in different
cases, on visual perception and tho sen
sation of color. Among the interesting
results of these investigations may bo
mentioned the fafl that letters, spots
and colors aro perceived at a much
greater distam o through tho medium
of electric light than by day or gaslight.
The Bensation of yellow was increased
sixty fold compared to dayPght, of red
Bix fold, and of green and blue about
two fold. Eyes that could only 'itn
difliculty perceivo and distinguish -'"',,r
by dav'ltght or gaslight were much
aided "by the .electric light, and the
visual percenm was also mucn
strengthened. Professor Colin con
eludes, therefore, in view of this fact,
that clectrie light would prove exceed
ingly useful in places where it was de
sirable that signals should be observ
able at a great distance The engino
employed in these experiment was a
fjinnimo eleotro-niegnetio apnaratns,
which rotates 600 times in a lulnute.
