preceding tlie ceremony I was Interested In
the nmoing of the oldirsi and in the prepa
ration for the coining of tha sultan. First
came a little army of cnrts drawn by donkeys
and ld by lsre legged men In turban.
These carta were filled with soft yellow aand
and spread over the road to tha depth of sev

march up. division after division, and rank
themselves along the highway.
There are regiments of cavalry on tha
finest of Arabian steed, each regiment bar

every regiment uniformed differently. Hera
is a troop of Circassians, with bUu-k cape six
Inches high, upon the crown of which are
white crows. They are dressed In European
uniforms, and upon their breast are rows of
cartridge Below them are cavalry from
Asia Minor, and coming down the hill m the

As the hour for thei-omingof the sultan
approaches, the road turn Into rivers of
color, and along the side of them, back of tha
soldiers, are seen the curious characters of a
Mohammedan crowd. Thereat t lie right Is
a patch of white, and you note that the hun
dred tmlloon-llke tgs of white cotton or silk,
which seem to fimd upright on the ground,
are slue, nnd taking your glass you see that
out of each tag, near the top, peep two black
eyes, and you know that three are the ladies
of several Mohammedan barems. who havs
come out to g.t avicwcf the sultan. New
come the officers of the court. They drive up
in carriage drawn by magnificent horse.
Some of them come ou horseback, and the
hrea-ttoof all are covered with medals, while
their clot I in, of Kuropwiu cut, fairly bUua

red fes cup. which look Ilka a gigantic red

"When I say that a raxor has a good tem
per," said a barber to a reporter, "I im
something more than that the steel ba been
hariteneil by fire and water to Just the right
point. In my opinion a razor La a disposi
tion like a human being. It may oe amlabl
and always do Its work smoothly though I
never did see a raxor yet that wasn't subject
to off spell once in a while or it may be
sulky half the time and refuse to cut prop
erly, even if the best of tools when ill a good
humor. Ami what you've got to do la to
humor It There's no us trying to drive a
rasor that disun t want to shave; you'll only
put yourself out. maybe cut the customer
and make the razor so angry that it wont
work again for goodness knows how kwig.
The thing to do la to put it right away in a
drawer, wltbiait disputing the matter, and

"Take it ont again at the end of a week, and
ten to one It will be in prime condition and a
wtlhnu.. nriaslble. Twre waa a atliecra tirit-
or tn TlCTe one day not long ago who
stuffed me with what he called a sclentlflo
explanation of rnxors' fits. He said that If I
would look at the edge of a rasor through a
microscope I would sea thxt It looked like a
cross cut saw , with teeth projecting on either
side. By use these teeth were bent out of
shape; but if the razor was put away for a
while the teeth would get back into adjust
ment again ami the tool would once more ap
aear sharp. Of course, that all sounds very
well, but I stick to my theory just the same.
Anil I ought to know, for I've seen more
raaors, and bandied 'em, than that bald
beaded old professor ever draainod of."
"It seems to me," said tits reporter, upon
whom the tonsorial artist was operating,
"that tba raxor you are using upon ma at
this moment must be suffering from no small
degree of irritation on some account or other,
Judging by the way it hurts."
The baroer paused for a moment In tha
scraping performance, and extending on
thumb drew tba edge of the blade slowly
across, the nail in a manner that sent a cold
shiver down the nowsjiaper man back bona.
"It's, sharp enough," be remarked, "but I'll
try another. Perhaps this raxor did not like
you. You see, there's no doubt of the fact
that raaors have their personal preferences.
The blade that will shave one customer to a
charm wont shave another. Of course, a
difference In the toughness and thickness of
the beard makes a difference in the sort of
rasor required, but I am not speaking of that
at all. If a raxor doesn't happen to like you
It wont shave you well under any circum
stances. Now, you observe, the razor I am
using at present takes to you first rate. I
bought it for fifty cents off a man whom It
dldut like. It's a good one, and, though 1
should bate to part with i', I might lot it go
to you, sir, for The handle's broken, but
you could easily have another put on, and it
wouldn't cost so much. Ind you say 'tonic T
Your hall 's getting a trifle thin on top."
"Thanks, no," replied tlie customer.
"I've been thirty years in the biisluee,"
went cm the lau-lier, accompanying bis words
with a brief shninpoo, "and what I dont
know nhout timwnysof razor isn't worth
knowing. There was something the professor
I was sukiiig about told me, Mwever, that
I hadn't heard before, though I dont guaran
tee that it Is correct, mind you. What be said
was tout the edge of a cold rasor, seen
through a microscope, was a wavy line, but
when the blade was plunged into hot water
the steel expanded nnd the edge was made
straight, like a string drawn taut, ami that
was the reason why it was a good tiling in
cold weather to dip your raxor into hot wa
ter, so a to make sliavlng easier, as of course
it would be, with a straight edge than with a
"Its n funny thing alsut a razor that buy
ing one Is always a -rfis t gamble, even for
an expert. A first rale blade is an accideut,
and often a fifty rent razor will be better
than another for ti You t razors have to
be hand made from beginuing to end ami the
moet skillful workman can't lie sure of get
ting two Just alike. His In the 'temper draw
ing' proress that the qualfty of the raxor is
determined. Ijtid Usn a plnte of hot sand
the blade ihanges gradually from a light
yellow to a durk straw color, and it is by this
color that the workman must Judge of the
degree of temper. If it Is a shada too light
the steel will lie too soft, if a shade too dark
It will be too hard and will crumble. So it
happens that rngorsnf the same brand always
vary and a really line one is a prize.
"Hut no man ran tell a gvsl one when he
goes to buy with any certainty unless be Is
given an opportunity to try it on a bona. In
that case if he is an expert be can Judge.
Ninety -T rent, of all the razors used in this
country are made in England, though deal
ers have put their own names on them. I
should ndvie anr man who shaves himself
to have a razor for each day in the week.
Then no one of the seven will ever get tired,
and If theaare all honed once a year it w'll
be enough. The chief troublejwith beginners
at shaving is that they don't know how to
strop their razors. If they would pet some
one thnt knew bow to show them that, and
always have their lather thick and rub it In

HUMORS OF THE BENCH.
tlow far a Ju-lge May tlo In Joking and
Maintain the Dignity of tha Court.
If a Usly of men are engaged in work of
auy kind and their lealer Insists on playing
the stag, the moral atmosphere soou becomes
entirely uusuited to the discharge of affairs.
If, then, when lawyers are eugagjrd in the
solemn and important duties of a court of
law, an example of frivolity Is set bv the per
son in authority, it is pretty certafi sfliat the
public Interest will suffer.
The principle which can he applied to de
termine how far it is allowable for a judge
to exercise bis gift of humor stands, there
fore, thus: Nothing should he said by him
which can lu any way destrov the essential
sense of seriousness which should pervade a
court of justice, or Introduce a temper of
Js?ular familiarity, such as must infallibly
breed contempt. As a matter of fact it will
be found that such a rule is practically ob
served by mot of the judges and that its op
eration does not In the least cut us off from
that species of judicial wit which Is most
worth preserving. It prevents the court
from being turned into a bear garden, but
leaves ample scope forsiiuhlung au impudeut
or restraining a tiresome advocate wittily,
and for placing the results of au Investiga
tion or of the application of a legal principle
In the shape of an epigram.
For example. It cannot be said that the dig
lity of the court suffered in the least when
Baron Maule used bis extraordinary power
of humor to rehuke Mr. CresKwell's inordinate
arrogance. Counsel had been treatiug tlie
bench throughout Ills speech with the utmost
lack of courtesy. At last the Judge could
bear it no louger and stopped bim: ''Mr.
C'resswell, I am perfectly willing to admit
my vnst Inferiority to yourself. Still I am a
rertehrated animal, and for the last half
hour you have sken to me in language
which Ood Almighty himself would hesitate
to ad. Ires to a black beetle."
Such phrases were not, we Imngine, likely
to make Huron Mnule's court unmanageable,
or to let counsel get out of hand. Surely it
b atisnrd to say that the exercise of such wit
against the use of an ill timed, ill judged and
i7oii' jocularity. The one need never for a

Haron Mmile had once to sentence a man
tried before him In a case of bigamy, in
which it appeared that though the crime had
actually heeu committed, there were very
great excuses for the prisoner. His wife had
been druukeu and unfaithful and, leaving
bim with a large family of children to bring
up, had disappeared for several years. Under
such circumstances he bad thought himself
able to marry again. In glvlug sentence
baron Manle in detuil stated how the prison
er ought to hnve acted, bow he should have
brought one action for crltn. con. in the
civil courts and another in the ecclesiastical
courts for a divorce, aud, finally, how he
should have obtained a private act of par
luuueut dissolving the first marriage and al
lowing him to contract a second. "You will
probably reply," ended baron Maule, "that
this would have cuKt you Xl.tDDI ami that you

A curious story is told of how Chief Justice
Fuller and bis family were driven from the
Congregatioual to the Episcopal fold by a
dance, when they lived in Augusta, Me. In
ltMO, when Nathan Weston, Mr. Fuller's
fatber-ui-law, was chief justice of Maine, a
young ladies' sewing circle was held at the
Weston bouse, and Mrs. Fuller played the
piano for the dancing that followed the sew
ing, Iter brother accompanying her on the
violin. This ungodly innovation stirred up
such a rumpus in the Congregational church
that the Weston and Fuller families went

Thcsse thoughts have been suggested prima
rily by recent events, some remarkable ssri
mens of testamentary curi bnving quite
lately been made public. I refer to the Nash
ville, Teun.. woman who left ftl.OllO to her
two dogs as beneficiaries; to the Columbus,
8. C, man who left a vast estate of H.OHO
acres tied up in such a shape, that it cannot
possibly benefit the persons for whom intend

Ind., woman who requested that her heart
be removed from the body, and that her
bands and feet lie amputated and together
he sent to ami buried in France, the scenes of
her childhood days, w hile the mutilated body
was to be consigned to mother earth near her
late home in the Ilnosier state.

Tbe father of all w ills nnd the most nncient
document of its kind known to the historian
and the antiquarian, is that of "the great

in the Scriptures by Herodotus and by Jo

tween the years 703 and PNI B. C over
3, Sis' years ago. In the will, which was
found by excavators on the site of the royal

The Montana, 4U) or Vl years before tlie
birth of Christ, adopted the plan of setting
forth, before taking their departure for the
unknown world, their wishes as to what dis
position should be made of the treasures ac
cumulated during an aggressive lifetime.
These instruments, which were written by
the testators upon skin and parchment, were
kept in the Temple of Vesta, the senior
priestess having special charge of all such
documents. I'nder the oldest of English
laws regarding will making an infant any
one under the age of 'Jl years is supfiosed to
be an infant in English law was, and is even
to this tlay, debarred from bequeathing prop
erty. Tbe old Koman laws, before the time
of Christ, were more liberal. According to
the code of these ancient times a male who
hail arrived at tbe age of i. years, or a fe
male who had only passed her fourteenth
summer, could, if they bad amassed property,
dispose of it in auy way they saw tit. Some
writers believe that the "Twelve Table Laws"
were the foundation ujon which all old Ro
man w ills rest. These laws were enacted be
tween 4iU and .Vrt) years before tbe tune of
tbe Saviour, as mentionet'. above, where allu
sion is first made to ancient Roman wills.
In some reesct these old time documents
are suiprisiugly like those of modem date,
tbe laws respecting their final administration
were very similar. At the present time if a
maker of a will is drunk, insane or unduly
Influenced at the time tbe document is signed,
it is void and without effect. The ancient
Romans hail precisely tbe same provisions
with others added, one of which did not al

disposing of bis realty or chattels.
Augustus Ciesar was the first millionaire
to dispten of bis prorty through the instru
mentality of a will.
The custom of disposing of property
through wills was carried west into Britain
by the Romans, and prevailed uutil the time
of the conquest, wheu stringent laws were
passed making it all but impossible for the
landed interests to get outside a certain
circle, the leaders of which soon become lords
and nobiwinen. In the '.is) or 3' years which
followed in the wake of the conqueror the
will making custom was almost lost sight of.

we find that they were of tbe name family,

the Bakesters, who were feminine bakers. Of

Few points in Oreat Britain are more than
a hundred miles from the sea. and in all ages
fish has formed one of tbe staple articles of
British diet. Catching tlie fish was therefore
an important industry, and Fish, Fisher and
Fisherman doubtless bad their origin in the
occupation of the men who first assumed
these names, of which fact there is abundant
record. It is quite possible, alio, as Max
Muller suggests, that men may bave mode a
specialty of taking or of telling a particular
kind of fish, and thus Salmon from Robert le
