How« «he Pig-nèe» Shave.
I The latest ton sorte! fashion to be
imported into Ibis country is the eye
1 lash shaye. Thi» may be seen At the
Hippodrome when the pigmies
perfoiming their toilet. After mäk
i nB their usual protest against being
compelled to hathe In warm water, the
! pigmies, instead of shaving the stub
i ble of beard from their faces as orhite
are
men do, cut oE their eyelashes with
the razor-like edgis of their t:n> ar
rows. It ls a painful operation to
watch, but it is said to become fnscin
