It was In Chicago, the booming city
along whnw busy etreeta I had so often
wandered and on the banks of whose
brawling rivpT I had so oft been
"bridged" tlmt I met a barber who made
a specialty of shaving eminent men. I
noticed that my presence did not seem to
unnerve him as I had supposed it would,
and that ho held my nose a good deal
higher wlnle shaving my npper lip than
I had ever heKl it, even in the bright and
halcyon d.-iys when, as a little boy. I wore
a vest made over from other garments
of my father's handed down from the
dim and musty past.
uk wipxd a large hot tear fro my
He wax a middle aged man with a
deep, red eye, shaded by a clustering
mans of eyebrow through which the
lake breezes were wont to sough. The
other eye wa in the same condition.
His hair had formerly been a bright
Some was flowing and some had fled.
I thought of this sentiment whilst he was
abaving me, and when he had finished 1
wrote it in hjs album for him.
He had an air of neglige and easy
naivette and bon homme and carte
blanche, and wore linen cuffs with edg
ings of iron gray. His collar also had
gray whiskers on It, and the mane
around the buttons of his trousers needed
roaching. He was a man of line mold,
and while he strained me to his breast
as be shaved under my chin I discovered
that h- carried a little asafcetida in his
left hand vest pocket to keep off con
tagious diseases, and also that he had
a very loud ticking watch of the Ameri
can type, with a revolutionary move
ment At time he spoke almost sadly of the
past and of those be had shaved, who
were now in a land where full beards
are worn almost exclusively. Once, as
be spoke of a statesman who had passed
on and left us, he asked me to excuse
him as he wiped a large hot tear from
the top of my head. I said, "Never
mind; weep on, thou aad hearted man.
Relieve thine o'ercharged orbs. It will
do thee good. 1 have wept in a barber
shop many a time myself. It does me
good to see thee do so now."
When he had recovered himself a lit
tle, he wiped his eyes some-vhat on a
owe), and. going into the clothes press
for a few moments, where I beard him
measuring out some cough medicine, he
soon returned, brightened up a great deal,
be and his breath both having gained a
great deal of strength, it seemed to me.
He said that he used to shave Commo
dore Vandi ruilt. I aaknd him how the
commodore was to shave. He said that
be always got shaved at borne. "I used
to go up every morning and shave him
at his home. He left orders that I was
tocome to his room, and there I would
always find him in his shirt sleeves. He
rarely swore at me. fearing that I might
accidentally cut his cheek. He frequent
ly had soft boiled egg on the end of his
noae, hut I never laid np anything agin
him for that. You never can tell where
oft boiled egg will light. I even found
oft boiled egg on Mr. Beechers chin
once, and he said that it must have been
there o'l through one of his mowt search
ing sermons. You never know when
you eat a soft boiled egg whether the
most of it went inside on the lining of
the coats of the stomach or outside on
the lining of your overcoat, or in your
ear or down the back of your neck.
"One time, however, the commodore
wore at me quite a good deal, I remem
ber. I had shaved him a little too close,
and so his face bled a little. Of course I
had to rub alum on it to stop the bleed
ing, and it made the old man quite smart
for one of his time of life. He got kind
of hot and told me I could go away and
never com back anv more. I told him
I had a wife and family and I would like
very much to stay.
'No.' said he, "you cannot shave "for
a biled owl," or "for sour apples," or "the
ace of spades," ' or some suoh thing he
aid. I know. 'But.' said he. 'I do not
want to see your family suffer. You
have cut my face so often now. von
mullet head, and then puckered it up
with alum, that my mouth stays open ail
the time and prett soon I will have to
put a gore into the back of my neck. Oo
away from my house and never, never
return if you please. As I said, 1 do not
want your family to suffer and so I will
give you a letter to a business man I
know down town, who will see that you
get a job at his place. Now go away.'
"He gave me the letter, and I opened
it careful so as not to cut tbe check, if
there was any into it. But there wasn't
any. It wus just a short letter. It said:

Lawrence Barrett, the great actor, when

rather soft and glidy like, as if he was
looking- for Julius Lamar, with a view to
tabbing him at an surly date.
"I would say, 'Oood morning, Mr.
"Ha would any, 'Sirrah, I know thee

with growing wonder and delight, look
in the mirror at the only man for whom

and throw out his chest and kind of

hale his breath quickly like a gentleman
who has blown out tbe gas nnd is par

"I would then ejaculate 'Rms!' and he
would take a seat in the chair like a :
that is getting $4 a week to reign tkroogh
one act and then take tickets at the door
the rest of the time. I offered him onoe
a strop to hold in his hand to reign with,
but he would not have it."
"Is he bard to shave?"
"No, he b quiet in the chair, and
winks perfectly nritiuul. He It a real
good fellow, I think, if he would oat"
try to forget that he is sitting for a litho
graph. When he gets his head out of

photograph taken he is tir-t rate."
"Who else did you ever aha, tiff"
"I have shaved Chnuncey M. Dejew
once, but he did not know a)out it, or at
least I did not tell him who I was. ar.d
so perhups he would not remember me
now. He was very nice and quiet, and
didn't make me any trouble. He kept
looking at the clock while he was being
shaved, and said something over softly
to himself. I judged he was going out
to dine somewhere. I asked him if he
wasn't Mr. IVpew', and he said he was.
Then I asked him if he ever heard aUiut
the tramp that called at a farm house on
Fifth avenue to get something to eat. He
said no. he bad not. Well, there wa
nothing to it only it seems that once a
poor tramp, with clam shells in his rich
Rembrandt beard and chicken feathers
in his nut brown hair, called at a quiet
farm house on upper Fifth avi nue and
asked for food. 'Odds bodkins,' ex
claimed the farmer's wife. h he came to
the door, "you are indeed in a sorry
plight. And how long since vou ta.-t--. .
" 'Four days,' said the tramp, catching
madly at the waist band of his trousers
just in time, for he had no suspenders,
'four duys I have been without food,
and four nights I have slept in a railroad
culvert with nothing over dm r-tit a first
and second mortgage and a rieht of way.
I have a college education and an angel
mother. Give me a-cTtist, lady, or a lit
tle plum duff. lady, and God w ill reward
you. For three days I wandered aim
lessly around on the s.te for the World's
fair trying to find my way to the settle
ments. On the fourth day I came upon
a habitation and tried to get a bite.
There was only one bite at this h.ii e
and a large mauve colored bull dog got
that. Lady, will you give me of your
bounty, or must I ask you to look the
otner way wnne 1 pass out at the gate
and go sway'-'

"The good woman could not resist this
appeal, and so she got some crullers and
cold cabbage with vinegar onto it. Also
a glass of milk and a cold sausnge. The
poor tramp took it and was about to
conceal the whole thing in his w hiskers,
when the good lady said, 'You ought at
least to ask grace and give thank- bfjfoN
you eat your food. Let me beg of you
to ask a blessing before you eat.' 'That
is all right in theory, laiy.' exclaimed
tbe trimp as he absorbed the sausage
and drained his glass, 'but it does not
work well in practice. Me and Ciiaun

"Who else have you shaved'-"
"Well, I've shaved Mr. Evarts. He is
a kind hearted old gentleman, with a
skin that hangs around his throat like
the seat of an elephant's trousers around

much with barbers, thoiiL-h. Ba is a

One day he wantd me to brush bis hat.
I brushed it the wrong way for him. lie
did not know the difference, but gave me
a quarter and went out. One day I tried
to show off to him. and whilst I was
