Degeneracy of the Barber's Art.

barber to a Philadelphia Bulletin re
porter, as he took up a pair of clippers
and made a wide swath on the scalp of
a ahock-headed young man in u filed up
in. towels in the chair before him, “I
tell you these are degenerate days.
Time was when a man paid more at
tention to the trim of his beard or the
curl of his forelock than he did to the
cut of his coat or the whiteness of his
linen/ That's all changed. Now a man
rashes in all of a sweat with his coat
half off before he enters the door. I
say to him: ‘How do you want your
hair cut, air?’ ‘ln. a hurry,’. he says.
‘Short in back, with room enough to
comb in frontr I aak. ‘ln a hurry,’ he
answers, and so it goes. The hurry

Expensive Seals.
There are on the Pribyloflf islands, to
the southeast of Alaska, probably from
four to five million seals. Considering
that each one of these will eat at least
ten pounds of fish per day, the herd
will consume six million tons of fish a
year. As some naturalists claim that a
seal will eat considerably more than
ten pounds per day, this estimate is
doubled by them. llow expensive
these seals' are will be evl V.it from the
fact that the amount of fish consumed
in England per year is less than six
hundred thousand tons, which supply
was valued at thirty million dollars.
At this rating the seals of the northern
Pacific got away with more than three
hundred million dollars' worth of fish

1j ike tho English millionaires, those
of the czar's dominions mostly derive
.jtheir revenues from landed property.
; While the Briton, however, devotes a
large part of his gross income toward
improving his possessions and to tho
1 amelioration of the lot of liis tenants in
I one way or another, the Russian, on
the other hand, extracts every farthing
that he can from his properly and
spends it upon himself, the result being
that agriculture in lius> in is going
from bad to worse, that formerly fer
tile and productive estates have now
become barren and impoveri Led, and
that, while the pec:.antry are in a slate
of misery bordering on famine, the j
nobles themselves have been obliged to ,
mortgage or soil their lands, and nro at
the end of their financial tether. Of
coarse, there are some exceptions, such
as, for instance, the Yousoupoffs, tho
Demid offs and tho Sehcreinctieffs. The
wealth of the Dcmidoffs is bo vast, ac
cortling to the New York Tribune, tliat
it is beyond calculation, and strangely
enough the fortune is of relatively re
cent creation, its founder having been
,\ country blacksmith in the days of I’e
tor the Great. It was while traveling
iu the Ural mountains that, the latter
broke one of his most valuable English
1 istols. A village smith mended it so
■julckly and so well that the czar wan
delighted and uaacd the man’s name.
"Demidoi?, I shall remember yon,” aaid
he Mhe rode off. The poor man was
beginning to think that i’etcr had for- <
rotten him when there came an official
j document adorned with tho imperial
Kcai, granting him the freehold of a
great tract of crown land in the neigh
borhood of the village. Dcinidoff wont
to work on hia new- property and found
there inexhaustible mines of iron, sil

BACK YARDS ARE WASTED.
Old Gardener TcUn How the Space Can
lie Well Utilized.
An old gardener told a Cincinnati
Times-Star reporter that the most won
derful thing about city folks is their ig
norance of what they could do with the
little strips of ground surrounding their
houses, and especially with their back
yards. “They nre not big enough for
lawns,” said he, “so most people just
use them to walk on. hut if they had
some gumption they eould enjoy many
• a garden delicacy of their own raising.
A strip twenty feet long and a foot
wide against the wall would furnish
enough grapes for two to eat. The next
foot would supply them wi;h peas; the
next with beans: the next with radishes
and turnips and lettuce; one bush ineacli
of the four corners would produce plenty
of gooseberries; another foot in width ,
would Supply “all the strawberries,
another foot raspberries; another, j
blaekberries; another a month's supply j
<-f potatoes; another, sweet potatoes; !
another with several fine messes of i

wenty feet. as almost any city back- j
ard could <lo, and they would grow j
