THE COLUMBIAN AND DEMOCRAT. BLOOMSBURG, COLUMBIA COUNTY, PA.
In Persia tho barber shaves tho

beards, pulls their tcctb, cups and
bleeds them when filling, seta their brok

Invited by Hassan, his barber, to visit
bis shop nnd boo him work. He went,
ngninst tho remonstrance of his serv

prnotlco surgery and medicine.
Tho shop was a littlo squaro room
with ono sldo open to the street. In
tho center was a tiny bed of (lowers
sunk In tho floor, from tho middlo of

in which the barber dipped his hand as
he shaved his customer s soalp; in Per
sia they do not lather.
On tho earthen platform, outsido of
iho shop, sat a burly man, whoso long
beard was beinc dyed an orange color.
It was full of yellow mud (the henna
in a paste), and bound up with cab

Tho shop was very clean. On two
recesses wrro displayed foui- vases
filled with flowers, and the implements
of tho barber s art, scissors, razors,
lancets, hand-mirrors, largo pincers to

strong combs; but not a hair-brush,
for that implement is never used by
Jrom the barber s girdle hong a
round copper water-bottle, his strap,
and a pouch to hold his instruments.
Iu his uosom was a small mirror, the
presentation of which to bis customer
is a sign that tho job is finished and

Customers came to submit their
heads to the barber's hands, and to
have their paralyzed arms shampooed.

An Indian Disarmed.
HOW A SPIRITED WHITE WOMAN AROUSED
A HIDEOUS APACHE'S ADMIRATION.
In the following good story, which
Tj...: tu:ii: ' .l
.uuiwcb a uiiiitM reiuiua in uiu
f miadeipHia Jseics, we must leavo it
to our readers to judge what it was
which proved too much for the Apache.
Was it the teacher's hospitality or her
courage whion won his heart ? Some.
things of both perhaps. Ono thing, at
all events, wo feel sure of ; stolid as ho
may have beon, ho must have felt both
surprise and admiration at the white
woman s spirit :
"An Apache, in full war-paint, stalk-
ea into an Indian school at Albuquer
que, N. M., ono day. Tho children
were immediately terrified, and trerab
hngly told us he was a 'bad Indian.'
They said an undo of our boys had
killed his brother, and they feared he
had come for revenge. As it was
dinner-time, I saw nothing better to
ao man to navo the children marched
into tho dining-room, as usual. We
keep open houso to Indians at all
times, and treat them as distinguished
guests, so I motioned to our Apache to
take a seat at the table. He sat down,
terriblo in his war-paint, and laid two
loaned revolvers, beforo him. The
children Legan to trembb.
"I summoned all my courage and
said: 'Put those revolvers on tho
"ihe Apache nover moved. The
cook placed beforo him a cup of coffee
1 1 i r
uuu a uowi oi soup.
" 'Take away that coffee and soup,
x i-uiuiuauueu, wun my neart in ray
mouth, adding to the Indian : 'You
snail not have them until yon put
tuuKu revuiverj on ine window.
"Irembling for her life tho cook
oboyed. When tho Apaohe saw his
dinner removed ho deliberately rose,
picked up his revolvers aud shall I
ever forget that terrible moment T
quietly laid them on tho window. His
dinner was restored to him ; ho ate it
in Bilence, and then, taking up his
property, walked out without a word
"I did not soe him again for years
liut this last time, on my way home, as
l was waitinc in tho train nt Sinta Ve.
my terriblo Apaohe, in all his feathers
and war-paint, cot into tho oar and
walked iu whole length, as if looking
for somo one. My blood ran cold.- Ho
then left the car and returned with a
dozen other braves, as horriblo as' him
eelf. He introduced them all, and all
must shako hands."
A Philosophical Tramp.
A stupid looking tramp knocked at
one ot the inest residences in Austin
and was received by tho lady of the

"I nm subject to ono form of porse
tlon in this country," said an En
glishman to mo tho other day, "which
I find quilo intolerable, though I can't
in tho least blamo my persecutors.
You know 1 speak quito like an En
glishman, naturally, and conduct my
self quito like ono, a a matter of
course, lleally, Inasmuch ns I've been
on this ldo only a month, would hardly
be worth my while to attempt to mas
ter tho accent and tho manners of the
country, don't you know. Now, I'm
not iu the least unwilling to be taken
for an Ji.nglishmant tbat 1 am ratbor
proud of, in fact. Iiut I'm not taken
for an Englishman, and there's the dis
agreeable feature of the thing. I'm
constantly taken, don't you see, for an
Anglomnmao Yankee, a beastly cad
whoso nativo country isn t good onoucli
for him, and who caricatures as in a
wild attempt to imitalo us. To bo
taken for an Irish dynamiter or a Rus
sian Nihilist would bo a comparative
compliment. Tbo other day I called
on a friend in the city to whom I had
a letter, nnd as ho wasn t iu 1 fell into
a little parley with the young men of
tho outer offico about his rctnrn, and
tho like. Then I sat down in tho inner
office to wait a bit for him. Preseutly
I heard, over tho half-partition ono of
tbo young men' say softly to his com
panions, with an Imitation of my own
accent: 'Bah jovo 1 not bad, don t
you know 1 Is it natural or acquired t'
l'ainfnlly acquiabed, deah boy pain
fully acquiahod,' said tho other, in the
same tone. 'Cahn t bo dono in a day,
deah boy,' ho went on; 'there s Beverly

in hero sometimes to boah tho governor;
took him ono-and twenty months

sonants and vowels madi with 4 the

Then I heard a maddening chuckle
from the two. This is very much the
sort of treatment that I get every
where. Sometimes men took as if
they were going to kick me, until they

Women at the Play.
FEW OF THE PECULIAR CHARACTER
ISTICS OF THEIR EMOTIONAL
I like tho female criticism, observes
a writer in the San Francisco Chron-
icle. It is always honest and frank,
utterly free from any dread of disclos
ing ignorance, and it is full of those
new views that are sometimes so val
uable. When a man looks at a play
he always wants to bo the hero if the
leading lady is handsome. If there's
any kissing going on, any bogging or
embracing, he wants to be the man en
gaged in, the business. But a woman
will get carried away by her emotions
and actually want to be the old woman
in a story sometimes for a minute, to
work her will on the villain. To men
tho stage figures are always stage fig
ures. To women they are more real
men and women, and they compare the
actions of the heroine with what they'd
do themselves under similar circum
stances. It was at "Othello," and she
got very excited over the Iago business
of tho handkerchief. I suppose if it
had been a book, or anything without
sox or of male denomination, she
would not have been so impressed.
But it was a handkerchief, a woman's
handkerchief, which muet have been a
lovely thing if it answered Othello's
description. She only felt that if sho
bad only got hold of that handkerohiof,
like Emelia, no Iago could have taken
it away from her, no', because it was
Desdemona's aud was to be nsed to stii
up Othello, but because it mnBt have
been such a beauty. That' is what I
surmised, oho gave a kind ot gasp
when Iago got it away lrom Jimeiia.
'Well r she said, "1 lust see royselt

and Cassia was paying those gracefal

"Look at bim. Just see how he's
