Misfortune Knoount«r«d In an Attempt tn

Why It Looks Out of Plaoe 1« Then Day«
of General Fr«»»perity.
To-day I got shaved nt a barber-shop,
where 1 begged the operator to kill ute
and put me out of my misery.
I have been accustomed to gentle
care and thoughtfulness at home, aud
my barber hamlles me with the utmost
tenderucss. I was. therefore, poorly
prepared to meet the man who this
morning tilled my soul with woe.
I know that I have not deserved this,
for while others have berated the poor
barlwr and swore about his bad breath
and never-ending clatter and his gen
eral heartlessness, I have never said

I have called the attention of the
public to tile fact that sonietilnes cus
tomers had bad breath and were rest
less and mean, while being operated
on, and then when they are all lixed up
nicely they put their hats on and light
a cigar and hold up their linger to tho
weary barber and tell him thut they
will see him more subsequently.
Now, however, I feel differently.
This barber, no doubt,
heard of me. He thought I was an
ordinary plug who didn’t know any
thing about luxury.
I shall mark a copy of this papet
and semi it to him. Then while he is
reading it I will stop up behind hiti
with a pick handle aud kill him. a
want him to bo reading this when I
kill him, because it will assist the cor
oner in arriving at the immediate
cause of his death.
The first whiff I took of this man’s
breath 1 knew that ho was rum’t
Ho had the Jim James in nn advanced
stage. Now, I don’t object to be
ing shaved by a barber who is socially
drunk, but when the mad glitter of
the maniac is in his eye and when I
can see that he is debating the ques
tion of whether he will cut my head
off and let it drop over the back of th«
chair or choke me to death with a
leather brush, it makes me nervous
and fidgetty. He honed his razor on
his breath, in fact.
This man made up his mind threo
times that he would kill me, and some
one came in just in time to save me.
His chair was near the window, and
there was a hole in the blind, so that
when he was shaving the off side of my
face ho would turn my head up in such
a position that I could look up into
the middle of the sun. My attention
had never before been called to the
appearance of the sun as it looked
to the naked eye, and I was a good

N. Y. World.
It is well and right to be economical,
for economy is at the base of saving
and comfort and independence. Many
a housewife has wasted the substance
of her husoand’s earnings, and many
another one has been the means of
enabling him, perhaps forcing 1dm, to
lay up something for a rainy day. The
pride of the thrifty housewife who
boasts that nothing is lost under her
administration of domestic expendi
ture and consumption, is familiar to
all. Every scrap and shred is utilized
by her, and she rivals the inventiveness
of manufacturers in converting wastes
into serviceable use. Poor, hard-work
ing men owe it to their wives’ economy
that their little homes are their own;
while others struggle along hopelessly
in the effort to get a home, against the
extravagance of their wives.
But economy is not pinching parsi
mony. Make no mistake about this.
The good housewife who is doing her
best to make both ends meet, and, if
possible, to savo a little, out of her hos-
band’s earnings, is not to be confounded
with the one who is endeavoring to
pinch something out of the existence of
her family and herself. The one will
kcephei family well, but will not waste;
the other will try to prevent goodness
from going into life.
An old man worth $50,000 was de
clining in weakness to the, grave and
had been ordered by his physician to
take a little wine. “This is rich living
for me,” he said, regretfully, as he was
sipping the wine and eating a cracker;
and he made sure that not a drop re
mained in the glass, to be lost. Here
was an economical spirit turned into
parsimony; and a life that had been in
dustrious and useful, was no doubt pre
maturely ended by its pinching charac
Savings made at tho expense of starv
ing the body and mind are too dearly
bought. They may be of service to
children and their posterity, but the
sacrifice that creates them has no dr
There was a time when parsimony
did not look as bad as it now does.
It had almost an excuse in a day of
scarcity ami poverty, of high prices and
small earnings. But the people who
need to resort to absolute parsimony
nowadays are few, and those people
are usually the most wasteful and, con
sidering their means, the most extrav
agant. The day of comfort and luxury
has come to most people who will avail
themselves of it.
A pinched-up existence is hardly an
apology for keeping soul and body to
gether, and a person who pinches his
body and soul not only acts like a tres
passer upon the domain of life, but by
his conduct endeavors to make himself
a trespasser. — Good Housekeeping.

The Manner lu Which They Produce Their
The business of getting pearls out of
oysters is a tolerably disagreeable one
The oysters are thrown into large
vessels and left to die, when the shells
open of their own accord. The shellt
are then removed, but the oysters
themselves are left in buckets until
they are decomposed, when they are
well stirred. The pearls sink to the
bottom, and the remainder is poured
off. It may be readily inferred that
the odor in the camp of pearl-seekers
is more powerful than pleasant.
The pearl had its origin in the efforts
of the oyster to protect itself from the
irritation caused by the presence of
some foreign body between the shell
and its mantle, as the soft skin of the
oyster is technically termed. To miti
gate the suffering caused by this vexa
tious intruder, the oyster deposits
thereon a coating of the same material
as that of which the shell is composed,
and when once this process has begun
it continues till in time the pearl
grows large enough to kill the oyster.
To fanciful minds of Oriental nations
no such crude explanation has ever
occurred, and they still attribute to
j>ear’s much more poetic origin.
The oysters, they say, rise by night
to the surface
and opening their shells receive
therein a single drop of dew. This
in time becomes a pearl, and if the dew
has been pure and clear the pearl will
be a beautiful one; but if the drop of
dew has been soiled with impurities
then the pearl will be opaque and of no
Linnseus, ths “faUierot naturalists,”
received the honor of knighthood for
demonstrating the possibility of artifi
cially inducing the formation of pearls
in the pearl-bearing mussel. But, as
has been the case with other European
inventions of which we have thought a
good deal, it has since turned out that
John Chinaman has been doing this
thing for a couple of thousand years
or so. The Chinese method is to take
the mussel from the river, carefully
force the shells a little way apart, and
iugert between the mantle of the oys
ter and one of the shells a few little
¡h llets of clay, tiny pearls nr foreign
bodies of some kind. When this has
been done, the oyster is turned over,
and the poor fellow is obliged to sub
mit to a similar uncomfortable process
on his other side. He is then put back
into a pond, where he is kept well and
fat by a diet more nourishing than nice.
After a few months, or sometimes a
year nr two, ha is again taken from Ills
bed, his pearls are taken out and be ia
