When did levarkave one?” “You got one two or three year* ago in Detroit, and how did you come out with it? Mr. Bowaer, you do the most foolish things ef any 1 man 1 ever heard ef in all my life?" “I do, eh? Is it foolish for mi to want to avoid blood poisoning hy shaving myself, to saj nothing of the enormous saving of money? Trs, I did get an outfit in Detroit, but I had a hoil on my arm and. .couldn't handle the razor. That was a cheap outfit, just as an experiment.” “And you cut yourself and pranced around and whooped nntil the neighbors thought wo had a Are. How much did this onfcAtcoet!” “Only $10.” “Ten dollars thrown right away!” “Is it? Let'* see about that' Having my own oatAt I can shave daily. That’s 70 eents a week, or $2.81) per month. Seems to me that $84 per year ia worth eaving. la the twenty years I have keen shaving 1 'could have saved tha trile of $780. 1 Where are you now, Mr*. Bowser?” “.Just where I waa before. Ton'll, j shave once and that'll end it.” '"ill it.' If that s roar opinion I have a great surprise in store for you. 1’tc been taking lessons of a barber on how to handle the ranor, and I can shave clean ioescaetly four minutes. Kasiest thing ia the world when you know how. Just think of the $7ho i luiTs thrown away!” “Well' I suppose you’ll try it ia spite of anything 1 san say, bnt I shall decline to he held responsible for any trouble.” “Responsible! Trouble! How could I hold you responsible? And' what trouble can there be?” “Why, that time in Detroit you almost tore the bouse down because you cut your ear.” “I’ooh! 1 was probably Joking. Don’t remember n thing about it. I,d look pretty blaming yon for vhnt I did, wouldn't I? After dinner I’ll take a little slisve. and if yon don’t say it’s a better sue than any barber ’ lias ever given me I’ll pat the ranor up for good.” After dinner Mr. Bowser took a i bowl of hot water and started up stairs, saying to Mrs. Hawser a« he went: •'Hotter time me *y the eloek. I | ; may be six or seven minutes this ! time, but I’ll be right |on tick to morrow night.” lie went into the bedroom and locked the door. Then be took off ! his coat, vest, necktie and collar. He I looked down at his shoos for a moment and then decided to take I them off also. ‘ Let’s see!” he mused as h« spell ed the box and stood before the glass. “The first thing is to lather, of course. That’s easy as rolling off a log. This is something like com fort, this is. Hanged if I don’t be lieve 1 shall want to share twice a day!” Mr. Bowser decided to pat on plenty of lather. He put it oa his chin, cheeks, noae forehead, care and throat, and more or loss fell on the carpet. When he had lathered uatil both arms ached, and no more would stick on him. he picked up the razor and chuckled: “1 just hold it with three Angers, this way, and lay it on my cheek this wav. and move it gently down. A child three \ curs old eonld do that, i I’ll show Mrs. Bogser a trick or two before I'm through. Good woman, but she thinks she knows it all. Razor just slides—!” Mr. Bowser gave a jump and at the same instant he saw the lather stained with blood. “Don’t amount to anything just the head of a pimple 1’’ he whispered to himself. "Barber told me to keep | my arm stiff, and I forgot. Can’t expect to get the hang of it in one minute, you know. A little more lather.” He lathered away until it began to drop off, and then picked up the razor again. “The idea of my throwing away $78(1 to the barbers!” lie muttered as he laid the Hat of the razor on liis cheek. “Well, better late than never. No particular hurry about this, however. Keller wants to give himself time to get. the hang of it. l’erhaps I d better begin oil my chin first. Don’t suppose it makes any 1 rreat difference whether I shave up >r down, so long as I-!” “Mr. Bowser, what’s the matter?” called Mrs. Bowser, as she kicked ■)o the door. “Nothing!” k* answered. “Then what are jon jumping around so for? I thought ton’d shake the chandeliers down !” “The blamed thing must hare slipped on me!” he growled as he returned to the glass to survey the silt. “Probably didn’t hold it exact ly right. Ah! that’s more like the way the barber told me to hold it. Now, then, take it easy till you get the hang of it. May he ten minutes this time but on the next occasion [’1-!” “Mr. Bowser, open this door!” Bailed Mrs. Bowser from the hall. “W-what do you w-wrnt?” he gasped. “I want to know what all this swearing anti kicking over the chairs means! Didn’t 1 tell yon how you would come out!” “You go away! I’m all right! It was the man next door yon heard!” He heard her go away after a kit, and he went back to the glass to whisper: “I’ll be hanged if I haven’t pretty near cut my old chin ofT! What in Texas ails the old thing, anyhow! I’ll get the hang of it if it cuts my head off! I didn’t have lather enough.” lie lathered some more, then lie picked up the razor and carefully examined both sides and the edge and back. Then he laid the flat of the blade on hie chin and smiled sweetly and Whispered: “Probably a little nervoas, being the first time. I'll jnst get to it by degrees. That's the way to do it! No barber ever slid a razor over my chia any richer than that. The idea of Mrs. Bowser calling it 810 thrown right away! That’s the way with a woman. If they can save a cent litre they will waste a dollar there. I’ll—’’ Mrs. Bowser heard a yell and started for the stairs. She met M r. Bowser half way up. The lather was flying about and the blood streaming dowa on his shirt bosom, and bis «yea were as big as onions. “Well, didn’t I say so!" she demanded. Her words broaght Mr. Hawser to himself. He turned hack, beckoned for her to follow, and as they enter ed the bedroom he silently pointed. The razor lay on the loor, the bowl was broken in three pieces, and there was lather everywhere. “Well?" sho queried, as she picked up three towels aod plaeed two ehairs oa their legs aguia. “Woman !“ ho hoarsely whispered, “this is too mack!” “Why, what have I done?" “Sure! Done! Look at mo!” “Tea, hut you tried to shave your self.’’ “But who dragged me iato it?" “Mr. Bowser, yoo certainly can't blame me. 1 told yoa befare you—’’ “That’s ouongh! This is the limit! 1 understand it all, sad can see just bow you planned it! It is not your fault that I did not out ray throat, and that you are not now a widow! Mrs. Bowser, leavu mo to mvself? I have some papwrs to look over before consulting a lawyer to morrow !’’ Little Curious Things. The first vessel launched by the early American colonists was the Blessing of the Bay launched in Massachusetts bay, July 4, 1831. The term “tabby cat" is derived from Atab, a famous street in Bag dad, inhabited by the manufacturers of silken stuffs called alahi, or taffety. This stuff is wovou with waved markiugs of watered silk, re sembling a • tabby" uat's coat. As far as is knswn at tha present time thsre are but sine words which end in “dous.” They are Tremen dous, amphibodous, nazardous, apo ilous. pteropodous, cephalodous, gastcropodous, stupendous, and gas tropodous. The greatest eold on record was at Jakantask, Siberia. January 27>, 182t>, when tested spirits thermom etere ran down to 7.8 degrees below the zero point of Fahrenheit. It has been estimated that 18,000, [>00 cubic feet of water passes over Niagara Falls every miniOe. Allow ing *524 pounds to the cubic foot, lh.) water which (lows over the falls every hour weighs not less than 82, 27)0,000 tons. Naturalists have enumerated f>7>7 different species of reptiles. Of this number 400 are as harmless as rab bits. Coaltai, formerly considered a waste and a regular nuisance to gas workers, is now utilized n» one of the most valuable colorprodneers. Chemists have extracted from it ,iv I cell shades of blue, sixteen of fellow, twelve of orange, nine of , joint, besides shades of other •olors loo numerous U) mention. iO»V«fCHT 1990 In the train of diseases that follow a tor pid liver and impure blood, nothing can take the place of I)r. Pierce’s Golden Med ical Discovery. Nothing will, after you have seen what it does. It prevents and cures by removing the cause. It invigorates the liver, purifies and enriches the blood, sharp ens the appetite, improves di gestion, and builds up both strength and flesh, when re duced below the standard of health. For Dyspepsia, " Liver Complaint,” Scrofula, or any blood-taint it’s a posi tive remedy. It acts as no other medicine docs. For that reason, it's sold as no other medicine is. It’s guaranteed to benefit or cure, or the money is refunded. SUPJSKIOKITY, Hot Equality but trut Superiority over all other Blood Remedies Mercurv enters itito the composition of gaany blood medicines, while with others lpdiae of potasn it the principal ingre dient. Both these substanc es are poisons, and while in some instances thev lessen tb« severity of the ravages of blood poison, their use in the-a nd are more lurtful than otherwise Bear in mind Dr Jonh Bull's Sarsaparilla is strictly a veg etable compound, vet its eftec t on blood DON’T USE fllUd with poisonous germ matter is like tottr on the forked tongues of a flaming ife. U subdues the evil instantly, even Jbtp Other medicines have failed. Again, Bull's Sarsaparilla is frequently used after tne system lias become poisoned by the ase of mercury and potash. It quiikly eliminates these mineral poisons from tho lystern, thus preventing and curing mer curial rheumatism, potash sores etc. In all syphilitic and scrofulous affection!, Bull i Sarsaparilla is a true pana< '•a. The laqueln! of blooil |iois n, such as salt rheum, eczema, king’s evil scald head, bolls, carbuncles, it' h, sores, rheumatism, neuralgia, etc., all permanently disappear B the use of Bull - | . .- con- j unued a suflieient length of time.
