It was Professor Debendeleben who

It Blade Mamma Sad, bat the Uaby Gloated
She was a sweet little woman, with
big brown eyes and a pretty air of de?
termination and hardly summoned for
titudo, as sho led n 4-year-old boy into
an np town barber shop. Sho took off
his hat and dallied lovingly for n mo?
ment with his long yellow curls. Then
she spoke to tho man in the first chair,
but her voice faltered and fell, and no
one elso conld hear what she said.
In a minute tho little ohap was perched
atop of a hassock placed in the chair, a
big apron was around his neck, and tho
barber with comb and shears in hand
was preparing to begin his work.
The little woman seated herself reso?
lutely with her faco to tho street and
gazed straight out at the stream of
teams and bicycles that fills Woodward
avenuo just beforo noon, but sho didn't
seem to see anything of tho long proces?
"Snip, snip, snip," went the shears,
and still she looked straight ahead bo
fore her. Then her bend began to turn
slowly, but before tho fatnl chair came
in view she had recovered her nervo and
straightened herself with a little shiver,
fixing her gaze onco moro on tho oppo?
site side of tho street '
Bat that couldn't last long. Her
hands wero beating nervously on tho
arms of tho chair, and tho too of a
dainty boot made a rat-a-tat-tat on the
tiling. Sho shifted uneasily in her seat,
and pretty soon her head turned again,
very slowly this time, until she could
see the devastation tho shears had
Ours side of the littlo chap's head was
already shorn of its long locks, and tho
unfeeling tousorial artist held another
curl at fnli length. "Snip" went tho
shears. Tho little woman gasped, and a
big tear rolled down her check. Sho
flicked it off, but another followed it.
Sho didn't look away again, but tho
barber's task was nearly finished beforo
she trusted herself to speak,
j Then sho swallowed hard, tried to
smile and said in n strained, wabbly
"They're almost gone now, baby."
