They didn't demand mora money, because a good barbet'a tips each week reach far more than the stipend pnld him by the ahop. But they did demand shorter hours Twelve hours, they argued, waa ample time to remove all the whiskers that ought to be taken off In Brooklyn. If It had been New York well, that would have been different. Hut Brooklyn 1 And so they struck. It was only on Tuesday, however, that thlnga got to going good. Horns of them who sought to reap a golden harveat by working while their fellows Idled learned that that wasn't considered at all ohibby In good barbarlng circles. Scattering themselves Into groups of a hundred or more, striking barbers wan dered all over Brooklyn, Bast New Tork and Williamsburg, "urging" tha workers tttabeoome drones. Their urging In some few Instances along Pulton street wai splendidly effective. In fact, ao urgent ware the urglnga In A few eetafblleh roents that the working barbers walked out, leaving hasf asleep customers and hasf shaved customers.

A BOSS BARBER IS NOW THREE- IN-ONE. And now only the boas barbers are working over the river. It's a splendid sight In Intensification of Industry to witness a boss barber In a three chair establishment In East New York at work, lie will have hot towels on Oie face of one customer, be shaving the second and applying the lather to the face of a third, and all at one time. The boss barbers are going same, but they are not keeping within seventeen jumps Of ths whiskers. Jerusalem, but whis kers do grow fast In East Nsw Tork! In some of the happy home aectlona .if Brooklyn lawn mowera are in constant demand, and all ths lawn mowers aren't being used on lawns, either.

And the hair-cuts! Bark on tha farm, they used to put a bucket over the da of ether and eon, and cut off all the hair that ahowed under the lower and of the bucket. In that way a round contour waa maintained. The eame principle haa been applied, with more or leaa i mostly less) success, In certain domiciles of Brooklyn since the barbers went on strike. Ths "waiting lines" In the shops where the barbers have struck resemble a Bowery bread line, In mors ways than one. Home of the Brooklynltes ars as unshaven through no fault of their own as the veriest bum In the Bowery, and some of them have been heard to complain that their whlakers have grown mors than an Inch during ths time that haa elapaed between the en trance Into the barber shop and their entrance Into the tolls of the wssry bosa barber.

But this terrible condition will prob ably not long continue. The 4,150 boss barbers or a committee of them, at least will meet the strikers to-night at the Labor Lyceum Hall, at Myrtle avsnus and Wllloughby atrest, Brooklyn, and :t la more than probable ths strike will be ended at thai Mme.
