do the most foolish things ef any

“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

the neighbors thought wo had a Are.
How much did this onfcAtcoet!”
“Ten dollars thrown right away!”
“Is it? Let'* see about that'

$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.

“.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 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

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

Mr. Bowser gave a jump and at
the same instant he saw the lather
stained with blood.
“Don’t amount to anything just

to himself. "Barber told me to keep |
my arm stiff, and I forgot. Can’t

as he laid the Hat of the razor on liis

never. No particular hurry about
this, however. Keller wants to give

l’erhaps I d better begin oil my chin

“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

returned to the glass to survey the

way the barber told me to hold it.
Now, then, take it easy till you get

Bailed Mrs. Bowser from the hall.
“W-what do you w-wrnt?” he
“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

examined both sides and the edge

sweetly and Whispered:
“Probably a little nervoas, being

No barber ever slid a razor over my

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

“Well, didn’t I say so!" she
Her words broaght Mr. Hawser to
himself. He turned hack, beckoned
for her to follow, and as they enter

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

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.
