FRAUDS EXPOSED.
Borne of tho Tricks of So Called Blind
Headers Bqjvcd by Sr. Hyslop.
Dr. Hvslon of Columbia collecro. savs
a writer in tho Boston fleraid, has help
ed to bring down several so called mind
readers who have visited New York.
Tho Taylors, a man and woman who
gavo exhibitions in Now York two
years ago and convinced nearly every
one who saw them of tho genuineness of
thqlr manifestations, gavo a privato Ep
ftnoo for the beneflcof this Columbia
professor and somo of his Eoiontifio
friends. Thoy found hidden objects,
they piokodTjut cards that had been se
lected from a pack and then shuffled in
again, and all tho other famiyar tricks,
with more than common success, ono of
thorn staying in tho. room and being in
the secret, and tho other coming in aft
er ajl was ready and .supposedly read
ing' the partner's mind,
All wont well until Dr.. Hyslop and a
confederate took fho Taylors aback by
announcing thai thoy could do tho samo
things. They pad found that tho words
used by ono 'of tho"' 'mind readers" in
calling tho other into tho room were
what fefafo tho desired information. It
was discovered that by skillful arrange
ment of not moro than six words n sur
prising amount of information could, bo
convoyed. This is tho first timo tho fact
tnat too Taylors wero notgenuino mind
readers has' been ipado pnbjic.
Anotner "mind reader" exposed by
Dr. Hyslop and coinvestigatqrs was
Guibal, who gavo exhibitions in Nev

of persons, most of whom suriposo to
this dar Chat his tricks were bona fide

8TORY OF A WEDDING.
And a Present That Turned Ont to Tie a
White Elephant.
I know a man named Jack Barnes,
who w'as married ono Thanksgiving
day, writes Howard Fiolding in tho
Boston Herald. His wifo had quito a
number of rich relations. Ono pf f hem
was in tho f urnituro busiriess His pres
ent was undoubtedly tho handsomest of
all. Ii was a mahogany bedstead big
enough for a Mormon elder and carved
in tho highest stylo of tho art Tho
happy couplo wero enraptured when
thoy saw it. Tho exhibition occurred in
the storo of tho furniture man, for of
course such, a thing couldn't bo sent to
the bride's father's houso liko a sugar
spoon in a box. An expressman who
subsequently moved the bedstead told
mo that it weighed nino tons, but I
think ho exaggerated. Moreover, it was
certainly as massive apiecoof fumituro
as ever I saw. On this account perhaps
thd generous donor had been nnablo to
sell it and had had it lumbering up lu3
salesroom until ho had grown sick of
the sight of it
Tho bridegroom gavo dircctiqns .ipr
its removal to tho Harlem flat. Ho then
thanked his wife's unclo for this mag
nificent gift with tears in his eyes,
when Mr. and Mrs. Barnes returned
from their vedding j'oumey, they found
tho mahogany bed iireaay estaDUsnea
in their flat They knew itwasthere,
becauso they wero nnablo to open" the
parlor door. Tbo bed was inside, and
thero was an alloy a foot wiqe all the
way around it between it and the wall.
This may seem improbable o d person
who does not know mucn about 'new
York fiats of tho S40 a month grade,
but tho sophisticated will only wonder
that tha ted .cot in there at all I am
told that thodmen who set it np had to
climb out of a window afterward, but
I think this isjan exaggeration, becauso
tho tall, carved bed board entirely cov
ered tho two windows and thus cast a
gloom over Jht otherwise happy home.
Thoy found tho f urnituro which had.
nmvirmqlvrrifmlin thn mrlor divided
betwecn .two belr corns and completely

VELVET COFFINS FOR TWO.
fhey May Tto Utilized as Ornaments Until
Needed ror Use.
'Of all tho queer persons of this
queer world tho undertaker, Ibolieve,
meets his. full quota, "so a reporter' was
told by a man wearing a funereal ex
pression on his faco and black gloves on
his hands who camo from a small town
in a western stato to attend thd meeting
of tho Association of Undertakers.
'Ono of tho queer persons is a
wealthy woman who lives in my town.
Ono day sho came to my rooms, and a3
tho tears coursed down her sad face she
managed to tell mo between sobs that
sho wanted a coffin that was covered
with royal purplo velvet I know that
her husband had been ill for some time
and was not expected to live. So I be
gan to offer a word of condolencoon ac
count of his death, as 6ho and her hus
band wero lnbmato friends of mine.
" 'Ob, ho is not dead yet, ' sobbed tho
woman, "but l want you to can at tne
houso and steal his measure whilo ho is
asleep. I want a royal purplo velvet
coffin, and it may tako you several days
to fill the order.'
"I assured tho tearful woman that it
would perhaps bo impossible to fill the
order, a3 1 had nover heard of a coffin
of any such description over having been
on tho market Sho went back home,
and .whilo tho order was hanging firo
fierhusband began to grow better and
in a few day3 was entirely out of dan
ger. Ho afterward recovered, and today
ho is a strong, healthful man.
"But. that woman still insists that I
shall fill tho order for a royal purple
velvet coffin for her husband, and, fur
thermore, sho has given mo another or
der for a royal purplo velvet coffin for
herself. On my present trip to St. Louis
I called at a largo coffin factory here
and surprised tho proprietors by leaving
tho special and nniqub orders to be filled.
When tho orders have been filled, i
can't say whether or not my queer cus
tomers will uso tho two royal purplo
yelvet coffins as ornaments to match tha
decorations in their parlor at home."

BARBERS IN BRITAIN.
Frank UnlTa Description or Dublin and
Ixjndon Shavins Shops.
In Dublin tho first class shops are
managed in the samo way as the lead
ing shops of London, and most of tho
first class journeymen barbers hail from
London, and they aro paid what aro
called London wages that is, 35 shil
lings a week but a barber in order to
get those wages must also bo a ladies'
hairdresser. Tho cheaper shops only
pay their journeymen from 13 to 20
shillings a week. Tho first class shops
chargo sixpence that is, 12 cents for
shaving and the same price for haircut
ting and shampooing. Tho cheaper
shops chargo only twopence, or 4 cents,
for shaving, hair cutting or shampoo
ing. Somo shops in Cork only chargo a
penny for each. The first class shops
here turn ont a customer just as well as
tho barbers in America, if not a. little
better, but I would not let tho cheaper
barbers shave my dog.
Somo of tho finest shops in Dublin
have our old fashioned chairs, and some
havo just an upholstered chair, with a
headpieco attached. Tho cheap shops,
most of them, just uso a wooden chair,
and tho barber wears a dirty apron, but
in tho finer shops they wearwhito coats
and clean whito aprons. London has a
gjeat manv shops, but thero aro only a
I'tjyr really good shops. Most of tho bar
bershops hero aro called toilet clubs,
anduhey aro all located on tho second
floor They get threepenco for shaving.
Tho journeymen barbers get about 30
shillings a week. A few get more, but
they dXaend largely on their customers
for tips; Tho best shavo I ever had in
London was in a barber shop conducted
by a lady! Sho employs fivo other la
dies and" charges threepenco for shaving
and a littlo extra for dressing the hair.
Thero aro only about half a dozen shops
in London which havo modern Ameri
can chairs. National Barber.
Animals at Flay.
Animals havo a keen sense of "mak

play. A child's first garso is bopeep

have a jolly tussle, they raako believe to
engage in deadly combat A striking
install co of this occurred to a writer
somo years back. He gavo a deadmouso
to a kitten. It was tho first time sho
had seen one, and sho sniffed at it in
quisitively befcro deciding to toss it
about.
A pair of slippers lay on tho floor.
She dropped tho mouso into ono of them
and immediately proceeded to look for
i&xnost zealously in tho other slipper
till I took up tho first, which contained
her booty. Then sho showed that it was
no real lack of memory that had sent
Ixr on tho bootless search. Buffalo

Greenland's Glaciers.
Nearly all the Greenland glaciers
and tongues from tho internal ico cap
terminate in vertical faces from 100 to
1,000 feet high, presenting facilities for
investigation. The vertical faces reveal
pronounced stratification on tho basal
ice, oven earth materials in tho bases
carried by tho ico being arranged in
layers. Pine laminations wero seen 12
or 20 to an inch. Tho layers aro some
times twisted and contorted and even
"shoved" over each other. Tho glacier
ihovement at tho ico border is a foot
