Until about the year WJOall the barbers

Europe practioed tba art of turgor. Ia
dark and dirty shops they shaved and blad,
cut hair and applied ouppiu(( glasses,

operations still more difficult and dautfer

every one was despised who mad a practi

form of a trade regularly followed. A
class they were much liked by the conimou
people, who applied to them for all ordi
nary meilioHl advice, but as society became
more rrfluert, uud consequently more ez
uctiuu iu respect to ueutuess, it beoama
necessary to separnte the care of the hair
and beard from the treutmeut of diseases,
not only because the association of the two
professions was often repugnant in itself,
but there was great daugcr of the trans
mission of diseases.
Louis XIII first ordered the separation
of the two professions, directing that tba
barbers should confine themselves to the
hair and beard and operations incidental
thereto, but the shavers and hair cut

dragged ou for nearly forty years, and was
not definitely decided until the issue of an

writer remarks, this was none too soon, it
being absolutely necessary that there

be to care for the general neatness of the
At this epoch the Parisians, and much
more the inhabitants of the other oities of
France, had almost lost the babit of

BATHING IS PAKI8.
Iu the Dark Ages It had not been quite
so bud, there remaining iu Guul something
of the Kouiuu custom of bathing, which
graduully disappeared, owing to the oppo
sition of the monks and the clergy. An
ecclesiastical work published iu 1TC0 de
clares that the use of the bath is only to be
regarded as a necessity, never as a luxury.
So filthy were the monks of the Fifteenth
century that they put to flight the beggars
at their gates if the wi ud buppsned to blow
from the direction of the mouattery. Nuns
of the same epoch and luter were not better
provided for, as we leuru from the experi
ence of a noble lady who, being a tempo
rary inmate of a convent, and having de
manded a foot untb, was refused by the
superior, the luxury bring unheard of
within those walls. In defuult of other
appliances she made use of au old trunk,
with no other result than to produce a gen
eral inundation of the sacred edifice.
In 12'Jg there were twenty-six public
baths iu Paris, then a small city. They
were arrunged for steum or hot water, a
person being able to take oue or both kinds
an he desired. Tbey were expensive for the
period, a complete bath costing four francs,
which restricted their use to persaus iu
easy circumstances. They were not opened
till daylight, the streets not being safe be
fore that hour. To prevent promiscuity it
was ordered that the men should go iu tba
morning and the women in the evenlug;
but the rule does not seem to have been
well observed, since, in the course of time,
they acquired a bad reputation and fell
iuto disuse. When they were heated in
the morning the fact was announced after
the manner of the period by criers who
made the round of the city. Bathtubs
were common in private houses at the
game epoch, made usually in the form of a
half hogshead, the use of metals for the
purpose being unknown.
WHEN BATHI2TQ STOFPKD.
Wash basins were also familiar objects
in the palaces of kings and in the castles
ot the nobility. Charles V of France had
twenty-four of the latter, all solid gold, be
sides others of silver. As among the Ro
mans, it wax customary to bathe before
meals, and to offer the luxury of a bath
to one's guest, who passed directly from
the bathroom Into the bauquet hull. Vari
ous instances are related of baths magnifi
cently arranged offered to kings of France
when subject happened to entertain them,
to Louis XI among others, this king in
cluding an affectation of neatue&s in his
brief list of virtues. Ther were bathtubs
at the barbers' shops, used indiscriminate
ly, as it would appear, by the well and sick
a circumstance that helped to render
neatness unpopular, and keep the people
from visiting them.
Therefore, the public baths being discon
tinued for want of patronage and tbose at
the barters' shops feared for sanitary rea
sons, the practice of bathing, common to a
certai n class in the Dark and the ear! y part
of the Middle Ages, disappeared. Having
ceased to bathe the person, the bands and
face became squally neglected, the appli
cation of water once a week being consid
ered sufficient among the nobility, and
once a month, or not at ail, among the
burgesses and the common people.
The habit of bathing was less common
In England in the time of Queen Elisabeth
thun in France, whence it appears at this
epoch to have almost disappeared. Tha
virgin queen imitated that the gentlemen
and ludies of her court should be magnifi
cently dressed, but their fine apparel ofteu
covered persons that were repulsive.
Bath tubs were not common in the cas
tles of the nobility, and tbey would not
have been much used if they bad been.
This disregard of neatness could not,
nevertheless, be carried too far, as is
proved by the remark mad by the queen
regarding the order of his boots to one of
her courtiers who had come into her pres
ence too hastily after a loug journey.
Henry IV, who was Elizabeth's contempo
rary, was as oareless of his extremities as
Lady Mary, if the Protestant D'Aublgny
is to be believed; but if this testimony is
not sufficient we have that ot another
writer of the epoch, who alleges thut tha
king was onoe told by a lady of his court
that "he smelt Ilka a dead horse."
The generation that succeeded did not
practice this cardinal virtue much mora
efficiently, but outraged neatness revenged
itself In sending swarms of parasites to
torment the human race. Methods of kill
ing fleas and other animalculie that infest
the human body formed one of the prin
cipal features of th band books published
in France during some hundreds of years.
Receipts were given for ointments to ba
used as insecticides, which were th germ
of all the cosmetics, pastes, essences and
perfumes which have from that day to this
been among the most essential elements of
a lady's toilet. Cincinnati Commercial
'A Revenue Raid.
The raid of the revenue men in Hall

stealthy approach in the durkness of night
to the guarded camps of the mountaineers,
who watch for them with gleaming guns
and often give tbem battle the chaaa

Cant. Samuel G. Morton, who is respon
sible tor the navigation of tha speedy Sandy
Hook in her daily ruus between this city
and the Atlantic Highlands, took tha first
steamboat from these waters into the Pa
cific. She was ualUd the Senator, and was
built by George Collier at hut famous ship

in 147, but did not start on her long jour

feet and a dsnft of T feat 6 lueses.
Captain Ilwtvu grows very enthuslastia
when he speaks sf th trip of the Senator.
Because of bar Inability to carry much
coal it was dtuldtd to put three masts in
her and sail her around, he says. The ma
chinery was slewed la her hold. She was
given eleven sails, flv of which were
square rigged. A big number of gold
hunters weat along in the vessel as pas
sengers. The weather was found to be too
bud to venture around Cape lloru, so a
passage was made through the Straits of
Magellan. The craft readied the Sacra-'
niento rivar without losing as much as a
rope. She was tha first steamboat that
ever navigated that stram.
The year following Captain Morton took
the Cornelia, th first steamboat to visit
the Amaion river, out of thU port. She
was loaded with a eio of provisions,
which sold so high on the arrival of the
vcaul at Rio Janeiro a to pay tb entire
expeuse of th trip. The stasia boat made
n call at St. Thomas an th way down. Sh
was afterward sold to lb BrasiUsu gov
