A SCHOOL FOR BARBERS.
WHERE "TONSORIAL ARTISTS" ARE
TAUGHT SECRETS OF THE CRAFT.

One of the most curious of the Imany
sttange intstitutions of New Yol%k: City
is Ia school estalbllishel not long ago
on the last Side, where young mnll
and boys are taught to become skilled
harhers. In this school long rows of
barber's apprentices are at work all
clay throughout the course, sc'aping
(iiligently at sundry stolid countcen
an'ces piovided for "clinic material."
When not. working in this capacity,
the majority of the faces so used
might be met on the flowery or In
iindred regions, s:urmounlting the
sioaching framl-e" typical of America's
leisure class. .'ome are placid couin
tOiatlces, bearing evidence of a \li
(awber-like trust in potential good
luck; others are sillen or troublei.
with the hunted look that comes to
the face of a man out of a job; but.
each and every one is the better for
a free shave and iairc'ut, even wlni
awc\wardly done by unaccustomed
hands.
In order that. material for practive
may be plcntiful and at hand the
(chool is situated far down town.
where trafllc of evel y ,ort is thickest
and where the great. city's voice takes
oin its deepest and most. insistent tone.
\\ lilt the first drowsy growls of that
::uulltiple voice at dawn, the men be
gin to gather and form In line at the
'antranCe to tCie building. Many of
,hemi have stood for hours in the mid
night br(ad line on Broadway that

At 9 o'elo'k the sclol is opened
and work begius. Men comve and go
all day, and lie aspirants to barber

in the school. One offence is suffilient
here. The master barber, quiet and
