IN A BARBER SHOP ON NEW YEAR'S.
Doable Ratee After 1 oTIcrk and Only
Single) Ktttea in a Mhii Tocket,
It was 12:30 o'clock and an the wall of
the barber shop was a gayly lettered sign
informing those to wlioin it might be of
concern that after 1 p. to. on New Year's
day the rates for Hhavitig ami hair cut
ting would be doubled. Every chair was
full and there were five men waiting for
th "nexts" wben Mr. Do Lay came in.
It was absolutely necessary that Mr. De
Lay should have his hair cut and bis face
shaved, for he was to dine that evening
with his aunt, smdoneof his aunt's guests
was a young woman in whom Mr. De
Lay took more than a passing interest.
There was a bored expression on the
young man's face until his eye caught the
fancifully arranged notice. Then be
paled slightly ami glanced hurriedly at
those who were "ahead of him." He
fult cautiously in his waistcoat pocket,
running his fingers over the silver there,
piece by piece. When the coiu jingled
slightly, he drew las hand hastily from
the pocket and blushed.
There were four men ahead of him
now, and it was twenty-five minutes of
1. No one of those in the chairs was
having his hair cut. He beg&K a littlt
anental calculation. Ten luinutes each
for the men in the chairs would make it
a quarter to 1, but one man had just
taken his chair; allow him twelve min
utes. Two of the other four men might
want their hair cut, and that would run
them over the hour, but ton uiinutet
each for the oilier two would leave fivt
minutes' leeway for Mr. De Lay. Ht
became more cheerful, but ho watched
every stroke of the shining razor blades
and listened closely for every vicious
snap of tho scissors. He figured the
time down so closely that he picked out
the chair which would fall to his lot.
It was a quarter of the hour now.
Two men had stepped from their chain
and two more were about ready to leave
them. They wcra a little behind time,
but only a minute or two.
"Your hair needs cutting, sir, very
badly," said one barber with a wise air,
and Mr. De Lay felt his heart grow
"Oh. no," was the answer, and Mr.
De Lay smiled feebly.
"It looks very raged, 6ir." Mr. De
Lay said something under his breath.
"Well, as long as I am here, you
might trim it." Mr. De Lay's face looked
Like a thunder cloud ready to burst.
It was a close race now, and Mr. De
Lay watched the clock in an agony of
suspense. His turn was next, but only
seven minutes were left. His only hope
now rested in one chair. He might
catch it with one or two minutes to
spare, but the barber was intolerably
alow. He was doing more talking than
"That was a bad murder," said the
barber, stopping to 6trop his razor why
Mr. De Lay failed to see, "I knew that
"Johnson, wasn't it?" said the man in
the chair, comfortably.
"No, sir; Johnston. I knew him."
"Well, I thought it was Johnson."
"I ll get a paper and show you," said
the barber, taking a towel and wiping
his hands slowly.
"Oh, never mind! No doubt I am
wrong. I didn't read it carefully."
"I want to get it now just to satisfy
"It's Johnston," groaned Mr. De Lay.
He did not know whether it was John
ston, Johnson or Jonestone, but he knew
that it was useless to contradict that
barber, and it was now four minute
The barber looked at him with a smile.
"Oh, yes, it's Johnston. I'll show you.''
He began to search through a big pile
of papers on the table. When he found
the paper it was three minutes of L
"There," said the barber in triumph,
unfolding the paper. "Here it is: Jo
seph Johnston, a well to do baker, wae
attacked in his own house last night by
an old enemy and was shot through the
heart, being killed instantly.' I was
sure it was Johnston." He read on fot
half a dozen lines more, dwelling on the
name Johnston with great satisfaction.
"You see," he said, stropping his ra
zor again, forgetting that he had just
gone through that useless performance,
"I seldom make a mistake on names."
One and a half minutes to 1. The
shaving was finished and the man wat
out of the chair. One minute more and
Mr. De Lay's groan was audible to every
one in the room.
"Johnson," said the barber, detaining
the man, "was as quiet as any man in
the world. He never harmed a souL 1
lived next to him for three years."
"Thank you, sir; a happy New Year
Nex-x-xl!" turning to Mr. De Lay. who
was fumbling nervously in his pocket.
Thirty seconds past 1.
"Hair cut. sir? Needs it very badly."
"No." gloomily; "shave." New York
