Ynnard, a poor woman In Paris, arrived al competency by col lecting orangtt peel, nud thereby not only helMnl herself, but gave occupa tion to others. She became a rich per son, a great patroness of art, and a regular habitue uf the 0iera. Her hus band was a distiller of spirits, and w hen he died she Hied for some time to carry on the distillery alone, but without success. Talking over matters one day with a friend, says tltilujnauCt MiMtmjer, she was much struck with a remark that he imide, to the elfect that thai there was a fortune to bo realized In the oruuge and lemon peel which was dallv thrown away by tho garcons of the cafes. The next thing she did was to sell her slock in trade and become a sort of amateur chiiTotiiilcre, wllh this differ ence, that the object ot her quest was orange uud lemon peel only. She had a tiresome task at first, but as soon as she got to he known she prospered so rapidly that sho was ere long ublu to employ other hands to do the dirty work of collcctinjj tho materia! from the streets, ami also from tho theaters, for the sweeping of which she contracted. She presided herself over some thirty young women In her orange aud lemon peel wnro-liouse, all of w hom were busily occupied in cleaning, pressing, and packing the peel us il arrived, 1111 occumttlou which she christened by the word "master." Vast quantities ot sostQ were daily sent away to all parts of France nud abroad to form the basis of Dutch cttracoa, orangeade, citron adc, and tho. many kinds of light drinks and aperients which are met with over the continent, She has now retired from business and enjoys the fruits of her former liard-mu'iiod money.

The friction of the swiff razor, keenly wip ing the skin, is, however, sulllcimit to lix tho attention of the patient closely uud sparo him from imaginary evils. One conlldenllal young (iemiail of my acquaintance could shave tho aver-age-si.ed American face with, I think, six swoops of tho razor. I have known him lo tlo tlili, and when tho deed was dono ho Buomod lo think his work was accomplished, but, on being ad monished that the situation was un satisfactory, he would dip the corner of a towel, not selected from a pile of fresh ones, in a shallow basin of water aud rub tho sharply - cleansed and smarting checks soi'lly twice, using three lingers each time. When any thing more was wauled he understood It to lie the application of "vinegar," an aromatic and piquant Hold, which makes a distinct linmusshm 011 the skin just reaped. That young man could never be Induced to dress the hair unless after cutting or shampoo In l'. There was a small comb iu the neighborhood that tho customer was at liberty to apply to Ids ovvu looks, and that liulshod tho proceedings, it is proper to say that tho price of the operation was only 6 cents, and that tho shave, though rapid and rough, was not bad Iu itself, while the artist was In his non-professional capacity, a truly pleasant youth, who painted in water colors wlien unoccupied by lilt rasping Irudo.
