DDIITCTIVES DETECTED. in
Oae Agnev Wgaged In Heseag Off An
B. Murdocx, or Murtha, wbo is said to ti
be a Pinkerton detective, together with a
i eorge B. Armstrong, Albert Jennings li
and Paul Ward, aged respectively 28, 25, T
19 aad 28 years, were arrested by Mr. of
IMooney of Mooney & Boland's detective p
agency and confined at the armory. The a
charges against them are for conspiracy a
and larceny, Murdock also being charg- e
edWith carrying concealed weapons.
The arrest and circeumstances leading
ing thereto are given as related by Mr. tc
iMooney in an interview at his office. w
About a week ago a young man made w
application to the janitor of the Railway
Age building, situated on Adams street. v
opposite the post-office, for an office in
the building. There were none vacant p
The applicant, who was Murdoek,the de..
t etive, was especially desirous of secur
iug an apartment in the building. He t
renewed his request from day to day, d
offered to pay liberally for the accommo
dation, and was so persistent that the n
janitor became suspicdou. At length
Murdock admitted that he simply desir
ed to gain admittance to the offices of
the Western Trunk association, which e
occupy the entire fifth floor. He mid he b
a wished to have unknown access to the p
books of the concern, and offered the it
nitor $50 if he would aid him. The ti
tor related the circumstane to Mr. I
a Vining, the agent of toe concern. The c
n agent conferred with Mr. Mooney and
retained h services. The janitor was a
instructedto admit Murdock to the room. p
Wednesday right was agreed upon by
Murdok and the janitor : a the time for
r undertaking the enterprise, but it was b
* abandoned. Again, lat night, the de- a
teetives lay In wait. This time they ware a

dock and the three companions arrived. b
They took three letter books and I
twoboob of meorand t had inten- m
tionally been left outof the safe. Gath- a
ergi the tooks in their arms theyleft g
the office, passed down stairs past the
room occupied by Mr. Mooney and his I
ttand entered a saun on tbe t
rdfloor exactly under the one in v
which the detectives had been coacealed. a
The gas was w itted in the room now ta- t
aen pieesioan of and they were exam- I

Sppeared at the door. Murdock quick- I

"Will you have your hair cut medium tic
or pretty short?" asked the barbe:. I
"Pretty short," answered the custom- of
er. The barber then took up a nickle- im
plated instrument and ran it up the an
beck of the customer's head with aclick- po
ing sound. "This isa'clipper,' "he said.

we had this tool I've been an hour do
ing the same job. LIst year we had the
'ontract for shearing the American Dis- th
trict telegraph boys. The man who did ca
i the work clipped 150 heads in five hours. ve
SI've cut 80 heads in a day myself with is
only scissors. They were convicts. The of
clippers used to cost $5. Now we get g
- them for 3.50. It takes about fifteen cn
, minutes to cut hair as I'm cutting yours in
and about the same length of time to br
shave an ordinary face and dress the m
a hair. Journeymen barbars own their a
own razors, but few of them know how

The boss furnishes everything but the an

There is also one day off every other a I
week. In some of the down town shops a
it barbers are given a commission on the e

ou of otevery dellar they take at the chair t
and 10 to 20 per oent. on the sales of c;,
brhes, sp, etc. There are about 3,- d,
e 000 barber shops in New York and there m
must be 10,000 be. Very few of the of

A frequent charge against members of
the bar, made indeed facetiously in moseet th
cases, is that of insincerity and lack of de
veracity. If the charge is a valid one it u
is net a result of negligence on the part of
Sof thelaw-,aakeis in not providing safe- wl
guards for the honesty of those of who to
a are to practice law. Since an early day
e in the history of Maeaachusetts there ma
o bar always been a prescribed oath which m
e members of the bar are required to sub- b
r scribe, and to this comparatively recent in
v legislation has added a requirement that th
i those who are admitted to practice in a
*. the courts must subscribe the oaths to of
e support the Constitution of the United
States and of this Commonwealth. The
attorney's oath of office is in all con
eience strict enough, and if there is such
ra thing as a dishonest lawyer he must be 0
a perjurer as well. Below is given the u
e earliest recorded oath imposed upon Mae
amchusetts attorneys, as well as the form
at present in uos A comparison of the

law had nqt been loosed upon in the
colonies as very respetable. parties had

colony in 1681 it was enacted that "these a

any one action-and where there shall -
happen to be but one day in any one ac

Good shellac varnish is made as fol
lows: Take of very pale shellac 5
pounds, mastic 1 ounce, and alcohol 5 or
6 pints, and dissolve in the cold to pre
vent toe evaporation of the alcohol, stir

good varnish for furniture, and it is much
employed in France by c.iinet-makers.
A cinerary urn has been discovertd on

If the expressad belief of some Cornish
miners regarding the probable develop

Temiscal Range, California, turns out to
be verified later on, it will prove of vast
importance. They are of opinion that
the vein struck will increase in richnem
as it increases in depth. Lately the
mine assayed 13.1 per cent. from the ore,
of purity of 0.96.

t- and annoying her by his playful pranks.
SFinally, to save herself from Irther an

Sgdrl would tie the dog up, releasing him
