Why A Dutchman -did not:have
There is residing in one of the bor
der cities • of the Commonwealth of Ken
tucky a German barber, who is quite a
charaeter in his way. The fellow does
not appear to recognize any distinction
whatever among the people with whom
he comes in contact. If the Governor
of the State were to step in his shop to
get shaved, the probabilaty is that he
would open a familier conversation with
him, and call him by his christian name
before the job were ended. - Not long ago
Col. James, T. a prominent citizen of
the .place desiring to curtail the hairy por
tion of his visage, called , upon the teuton
aforesaid to engage his professional 'servi
ces. It seems that the Colonel was known
to the lathering knight, and of course was
the recipient of much confidential remark
during the operation which produced the
usual feeling of annoyance. As he was
about leaving the shop, the razor-strapper
called to him :
`,Hello, Yim told me cot time it is yore
you goes away," This was too much for
the Colonel's dignity, and turning .sharp
ly around remarked : "Dem you, why
don't you keep's -clock, and not bother
every gentleman that come into yoarshopr
"Hold on dere," replied the Teuton,
"come you back, Yin, gust one minute
and I told you how it was dat I don't
got any glock.' The request Father ex
cited the 'Colonel's curiosity; and he of
course waited for the explanation. "Vail,

LIQUID GOLD. , --One of the prettiest
sights the human eye ever rested upon
is pure gold in its liquid state. We saw
in the Branch mint, recently, a. jar con
taining several galons of liquid partially
precipitated.' The liquid is the color of
pure sherry wine,, andgyeatly magnifies
that which is precipitated in the solid
state. Looking through the , side of the
jar at the gold which has settled on the
bottom, it presented a sp`retutsr - and mag
nificence such as we never witnessed even
in the most brilliant ' sunset—an appear
ance not unlike that which one wouldim•

if inverted and lined _with solid goldand
lighted by a summer' sun. The assayer
had his eyepeeled while iie"were examin
