This man, who does not see himself

thing is Just so before he presents
himself to the gnze of the public.
HOW HE MADB HIS VOW.
In the daya of his youth he must
have been a very handsome boy, and
there Is little doubt Unit he took as
much pleasure from his own linage In
tho glass as any youngster. It may be
that he was given to gating at him
self too frequently, for it was from
this penchant that bis resolution grew,
He was visiting a young lady ac
quaintance one day, and she caught
him looking Into a mirror every few
minutes. She knew him so well that
she felt at liberty to remark; ,
"HI wager that you could not keep

Perhaps bis pride waa touched try
the Innocent words. At any rate hie '
"I so, and not only for one hour,
but for enough of them to arrke
twenty years." .r
This wa seemingly so prepoaterocf '
that the young lady offered to make a
wager for anything be pleased, then ,
and there, and so the bargain waa
closed. There are few who know what
are the term of the bet, and then ,
may be a nice little romance blddt '
behind It all. But that' not the sub
ject of the atory. Enough It Is to
know that be try that from that day
to this b6 has never glanced Into a
mirror, or, In fact, at any surface
that would cast hla reflection, and
those who know him well do not hes
itate to say that this la undoubtedly
"It waa a little Inconvenient at first

day, "for 1 knew my bair wasn't

must be all askew. Rot after a few
days the awkwardness passed away,
nnd you may easily Imagine that at
una time Hie last thing 1 ever think

He ha beeu shaved la a barber shop

his eyes were closed. The man of

close to his face and suddenly ex
claimed: "Ob. look!"
COULDN'T FOOL HIM.
But that was an old game to bis
customer. Keeping bis eyelids shut,
he turned his face to one side, cau
tiously t.jiened one eye and then
slowly moved bl head until he could
see that the barber held something In

Meeting him in the office of the hotel
where he haa his rooms, I ventured
the guess that the dressing case In bis
room was minus a mirror.
"Not at all," was the surprising
answer. "Of course there Is a mirror
there. But It Is Just as If it were cov
