The interior of the .hop was decorated with half a dozen more of the signs, and two knights of the razor and a colored boy fanned themselves and waited for customers. The reporter had just made known his errand when two youths, of the variety known as "toughs," entered, and one of them. not withstanding the lavish display of signs, inquired if "this here's the place where the feller was wot burned yer hairofl?." Beingassured he had reached the right place. the youth asked if it "hurt yer, ' and when the barber said it. was a painless operation, seated him self in one of the chairs and told the barber to "bring on yer blase and do it up in style;" he added that he wanted a "reg'lar summer c...

The 17ys&.7 Elutehe Matches are undoubtedly useful. They are an evidence and accompani meet of civilization. The ravage knows nothing of matches. He has to depend upon the tedious process of rubbing a stick against a dry piece of board when he wants to kindle a fire or to light the gas. and very inconvenient he must find It when he hears a burglar in the night and wants to light a candle and go down stairs to search for him. And yet it is by no means certain that we are any better and happier fqr the inven tion of matches. Think for a moment of the danger that always lurks in matches; how chil dren set themselves and valuable things on fire with matches, and how rats try experiments with matches which they have stolen and dragged into their holes. Such dangers were unheard of in the days of the flint and steel and tinder-box. No child could start an undesirable fire with Dint and steel, for in order to use those implements sueo cessfully the intellect of a grown man, together wi...
