Worse than tlieso are the cheap and nasty toilet soaps so much in voguo. Ihoy aro mado from ruucld vogetablo oils and half decom posed acid animal fats with inipuro al aklios, in the shortest time und tho clieupost manner possible To covor up their foulness or poor workmanship, the manufacturer colors them with brilliant dyes or very, dark d.yos, and with the rankest essential oil tho mar ket affords. A cako taken from a buc-oud-rato Broadway hot so is a good jse m point. It lias a nent oval lor in, cp ii": nut pleasant odor, minors und is of a handsome rich brown b any but an export It would a superior article, whilo to a proprietor it oilers, besides all se attractive qualities, tho far more fascinating element of extreme cheap ness. Careful examination and anal ysis show that tho brown color concoals slovenly workmanship, which would olhorwiso bo exposed, in Irregular masses of varying shade and consis tency, and that the strong essential oils servo to smother a rank smell of putre faction and linusflating raw materials. The amount of the oils is so largo as to act as a rubefacient and evon an ir ritant upon tho skin. The writor once experimentally rubbed it on his face and allowed the thin saponaceous lilm to remain ten minutes before washing it off. On its disappearance ho found tho cuticle covered by numerous red Eoints intermediate in appearanco etween acne and ee.oma, which lusted tweuty-fotfr hours before tho faco re sumed its natural appearanco. Such toilet soap applied to womon of lino complexions but of sensitive skins would ruin their appoaran e in loss than a fort-night, nnil would in the long run produce u condition ol the cuticle wlucli roquiro work ol mouical treat- restore to us pristine stato. so would bo its uso upon babies ou iig children. Their skin is tincr moro delicate than can bo easily described. Irritatod by such soaps it would break out into painful eruptions and in a short t mo thereafter into run ning sores. Tho evils described apply chiofly to the bed-room and bath-room; those of tho publlo wash-room are far worso. Here a larger cako is employed, and almost invariably one whoso workman ship is so inferior that with the slight est use it becomes pulpy or sticky. In this condition it does all tho harm men tioned, and besides this it may act and frequently does uul as u vehicle fur disease virus and d sease germs. A person suffering from some skin com plaint or from somo blood disease, which manifests itself in cutaneous disorders, ulcers, or other sores, uses the cake, and by the more frirtion of rubbing, loosens hcuIcs and pioces of discasoil matter which are retainod by tho glulonous surface of the soap. These may or may not contain tho virus or the' germs re.fored to. If they do tho next person who uses that cako runs a serious risK ot aDsoromg mo contagion and becoming a sufferer from the samo d soaso. So bad aro matters his regard that tho only safe rule person solicitous (or his uoaitu is tor use the soaps supplied by no- r patrons aud gnosis, but to al ways carry his own with Iiiiu or to try a fresh cake, no matter how great the temptation may be to use that which is freely offered him in places of public ro-ort.- More objectionable yet are the un wieldy roller-towel, the saloon towol, and tho long and broad towels of the wash-room. These under any and all circumstances are a disgrace to Hie house that uses them and an insult to Its customers. The towel removes moisture from the faca and bands by rubbing. The friction does more, how ever, than removo the moisture alono. It forces oil scales, pieces of dead skin, lymph from cuts anu abrasions, mucus from the nostrils, perspirations from the pores, pus from sores and ulcers, fBynything liquid that may be excre- jlrom tne Douy or may nave Doon own upon its surface. The fibrous ml Interlaced structure of the towol make it a marvelous receptacle and ratch-aH for these varied substances. Xhev remain lu its interstices until it is I tela" washed, and even long after, unless it Is thoroughly boiled and rubbed with strong laundry soap or treated with Javelle water or chlorldo of Iron. It Is nil very well for tho tlrst man who applies a towel of tho class montloned to his face and hands; tho second man runs a risk and the rlski ncroases arith metically with each tisor. As nearly one man in iifty suffers from some cou tairious or germ disease, and as these hotol and saloon towols average two h u ml rod usors a dev. it Is clear that evory ono toward tho end of its daily career Is in all probabilities a sourco ol dangor and disease.

Commissioner Norman J. Column re contly narrated to a pnrty of frionds in Washington this op'sodo in his oarly life: "Whon I was n young man I drift ed into Louisville, Ky. I had nothing to do and determined to study law. had but two or three old lawbooks, and not money enough to buy moro. I took a room and 'batched1 It. Did you evoi 'batch' it? To cko out nn existence and earn a littlo monoy to live on and buy books. I taught school. I used to go to a bako shop and buy things to cat, and tako tliem up to my room and eat thorn. Ono day I wont into the bakery and bought a loaf of brown bread and 10 cents' worth of cake. 1 saw another young man across tho shop who bought a loaf of brown bread and 10 conts' worth of cake. I looked al him closely, but ho did not soem to notico mo. Finally I wont up to him and sa d: Wo sconi to be buying siuniui things." He stared at me, but did not seem disnoscd to be friendly. "I am kccp'1112 bachelor's hall," 1 continued. "So am I." replied tho stranger. "I tako my things homo aud them," I continued. "So do I." replied tho young man. "I am trying to study law,'' I wen on. That is just exactly what I am do ing!" exclaimed the young man. "And I am teaching school to cam a little monov," I continued. "So nm I." was tho response. Wo both smiled ot each other and shook hands. "Then I don't soe why wo should not chum together, 1 salil, "aud save ex penses.,'' "I was thinking tho samo thing," re plied my unknown friond of the bako shop. Beforo we had left the shop we had agreed to room togothor. The only question was whothor he should come to my room, or 1 go to his. "Lot us go to the best place," I said. .My quarters were so poor ana hum bfo 1 did not wish him to come to me, His were so bad ho would not let me see them, or tell me what street they wore ou. The upshot of it was that in less than two hours lie moved to my room. He got a horse and wagon, and brought a table, two chairs, his trunk and a few law books. We read law together, anil taught school in d.fforout parts of the o'ty. In a ja-ir or two wo docidod to begin tho practice of law. It wa agreed that my chum should go over to New Albany aud put out a shin trio, and start in. 1 was to remain in lou s ville, teaching, to earn onouh to live on and koop up tho supplies. If he matte any thing at tho praclico of law I was to have half, and he was to have half of all I earned until such time as we could seo our way clear to livo and practice together. Well he prospered, and made money, and tho new firm did well. In timo he becamo district at torney." "Both of you must have been Yan kees," said a gentleman who was list cnlng to tho story. "True replied Mr. Coiman. Ho waf from Fcnnsylvaniu and I was from York stato." "And who was your partner," the genlloman asked. "M ciiaoi tj. Kerr, laio sposKor oi the houso of representatives," was the modest reply. Ihere is a wiiolo volume ol romance in that simple and pathetic 1 ttlo story. Tuo conlidence these two men snowed iu each other, the honesty and simplic ity of thoir character, the days of tod, struggle and privation ultimately crowned with success, point a moral and adorn a tnlo which is characterist ically American. Such men are bound to come to the top, and both did. Mr. Kerr has been dead for some years, but Mr. Col man is the ab!o head of the bureau of agriculture. Ocular Evidence.
