R ARBRS AND SAVING..
The Idea that shaving Is a du1ty, says
the London News-ceromoiial, as
among the Egyptian priests, or social
merely, as amnong ourselvo-is older
than the invention of *teel or even of
bronze razors. Nothing is more ro
markable in savage life than the reso
lution of the braves who shave with a
shell or a broken piece of glass loft by
European marIners. A warrior wi:
throw himself on (ho gi ound, and
while one filid holds his arms and
prevents him from stry-gding, atnother
will scrape - 111 chin wth the shell or
tle broken bottle glass till lie riscs,
bleeding but. beardless. Macaulay, it
seems, must have shaved almost as
badly with (te razor of modern life.
Whon lie went to a barber, aid, after
an easy shave, asked what lie owed, I
the tbflow replied: "Just what you
generally give the man who shaves
you, sir." "I generally -ve him two
cuts onl each cheek," satid the historian
of England. Shavitg requires a coII
bination of qualities which rarely tncot

You should have plenty of -razors
Ait)like a Prussian anbassndor o'the
stingy Frederick. The ambassador,
according to Vol(aire, cut his throat
with tehe only razor lie possessed. Tle
clin of that diplomltliist must havo
beet unworthy alike of' the court tio
which he w,as accredited and of that.
from which he caie. The exquisite
shaver who would ace the world with
a stnooth eltinl requires Imiany razors,
inal strops, itaty bruslies, odd Soap1,
a light ptealy hand, and, perhaps, a
certain gaiet,y oftomper which prevents

temptatiois. Perhaps the Shaver is f
born, not made, like the poet.; ertainly j
inan1t1y mein are born1 with an inability

fte kindly race of barbers, a race dear
to literature. Tite energy of Ihe Brit
ht character, our zeal for individual
enterprise, Imlakes us a self-shaving
rtace; the Latin teople are economicil,
but. they do not gruldge paying for~ alt
easy shtie. Aieric'ans fin this Iatter'
are tutote Conl ti nlental (han En Jt"gllish inl
their 1aste. Wias it not inl Marseilles
that his I'rinds induced Mark Twain to
be shiaved by it barber worthy%- of (ie

professioni*? Tbey pretended hat his
perfbioraneps were equal to) .those of
ithe barber on board te ship that
