A Real Dlffertnoe. Governor Woodruff of Connecticut was talking, apropos of the railroad accident that ho was recently Involved In, about European railroads. "What amuses me about those lines," he said, "la the very slight degree of difference between tho first, second and third class carriages. I vow that If a carriage's class were not printed on the door you would not know what It was. "I am aware of but one cuse of real distinction between first, second and third class. "A friend of mine was touring York shire last summer. An otnnlhus ran between two Yorkshire towns, and ■ there were, of course, first, second and third elaaa seats In It. yet they were all quite alike. "My friend, sitting In his first class place, thought he hnd been done until a tong, steei> hill npi>enred.

"I am occupy ing a room on tbe top floor of a sky acraplng apartment hotel. This morn ing I sent for a barter to come up and shave me. He came, but when he saw to what an altitude he had attain ed he looked uneasy. 'Would it Inconvenience you to come down to the regular barber shop?' he asked. 'I answered that It would not par ticularly put me out. but that I would like to know the reason for his re quest. 'Tile fact is.' he said, 'I never llko to shave Hnybody at this distance above the ground. No barlter likes to. We seem to be particularly sensi tive to height. It makes us nervous Moat barbers will not undertake n Job above a certain number of feet In the air. Of course If you Insist I will shave you here, but you would prob ably get a lietter shave ten floors be low this one.' 'Well. Just out of natural eussedness I refused to humor the fellow's whim. As ji consequence he nearly cut my throat. Whether he dhl It through nervousness, as he cln lined, or pure eussedness of his own I don't know. Whatever it was, that is a peculiarity of barbers that I'd like to "have ex plained."--New York Sun. A Plain Hit.
