Shaving Was nt One Time Considered
Almost a Crime.
We need not go so far back as the
eighteenth century to llml ICnglishnien
who held that shaving was "agen God
and nature." In the nineteenth, James
Ward. It. A.. In a "Defense of tho
Iti.iiril." mt forlh eighteen reasons for
retaining It. mainly Scriptural, re-en
forced by artistic considerations.
"What would a .lupiter be without a
board?" As lute as 1SC.0 Tliulogos pub
lished a treatise entitled "Shaving A
Breach of the Sablmth and u Hindrance
to the Spread of the C.ospel." One of
his polntu was that "Providence had
manifestly designed the beard as a pro
tection for tho throat and chest." But
what about the woman's throat?
Nowhere was there more prejudice
centuries ngo against beards than at
the Inus of court. The "black books"
of the Inns tell us how offenders were
fined for wearing beards, and some
times were even rompulsorlly shaved
by order of court. And tho prejudice
iigalnst the bearded barrister still
lingers. Vice Chancellor Bacon carried
his dislike to bearded or mustached
barristers so far that he always refus
ed to bear them. Even now thero are
very few leading counsel with beards,
and I can remember only one unshaved
barrister of the greatest eminence, the
late Jiidah l'hlllp Benjamin. Q. C

"Ills reputation for bright and caus

Byng, one of the dandles, was blessed

A New Amsterdam
By F. A. MITCH EL
Now Year's day bits changed In n gen
eration from what It was for BOO or
more years. Till some thirty years ago
It was devoted to making calls. The
Dutchmen who settled Now York, then
called Now Amsterdam, early In tho
seventeenth century, brought tho cus
tom with thorn from nolland. On tho
tlrst New Year's day in tho little town
nestling about the fort on the point of
Mnuhattan Island probably not n hun

yards, which embraced tho town, on

sweeping, dusting and polishing their
homes, put on all the petticoats they
possessed and In cap hud collar sat
themselves down In their parlors to re
Now. tho day before one of tho ear
liest of these Now Year's days a bar
gain was struck between ICntrlna Van
Gaasbeck and her mother. Krnu Van
Gaasbeck wished her daughter to mar
ry DIudrleli Van Dusen, a rich ship
owner, while Katrlna preferred An
thony Van IIowi, a young fur trader. 1
havo called the former of these men a
rich shipowner, and he certainly was,
for ho was tho possessor of a sloop
fully thirty feet long, on which bo car
ried supplies to tho settlers along tho
Uasfrlver as far as Hell Gate nnd along
tho North river ns far as Spuyten Duy
vll. Tho bickerings between mother nnd
daughter bad for months past been
embittering the life of the husband
and father. Peter Van Gaasbeck. No
sooner did he come homo from ids
work In tho evening, pour out a cup of
eclmapps and light his pipe than the
clatter commenced, and he was driven
distracted. On this day before New
Year's that lias been mentioned when
tho turmoil commenced ho cried out:
"Settlo tills matter between you, or.
by St. Nicholas. 1 will go back to Hol
land on the next ship that sails, leav

"How settlo It?" asked mother and
daughter nt once.
"Tomorrow will bo New Year's day.

Krnu Van Gaasbeck was loath to ac
cept this arrangement, for sho did not
trust her daughter, and Katrlna was
loatli to accept It because sho did not
trust her mother, but eacli consented,
thinking herself sutllclently sharp to
outwit the other.
Then Peter settled himself to his

New Amstordaniers were In bed, the
suitors had each been Informed by tho
one who favored him of the arrange
ment and Instructed to make Ids call
at the moment tho clock struck 12,
Dledrlcb Van Dusen arose at cockcrow
and spent tho tlmo between tli. 'i nnd
noon watching tho hands of the town
clock. At S ho put on a second pair of
breeches, and every half hour nfter
that ho put on another pair, so that
by 11 o'clock lie was so Incased that
he resembled n hogshead of gin set
upon end on n couplo of bricks.
At live minutes of 12 ho cast n last
glanco nt the clock and proceeded to
the house of Fran Van Dusen. Ho was
received with smiles by both mother
nnd daughter, which niado him feel
very comfortable, for his rival was not
there. It being a minute or two of 12
o'clock, nnd he bad certainly won. He
did not hear the clock strike, for Ka
trlna talked so loudly that he could not
have heard a gun fired on the Battery,
but n hundred yards distant When he
had been In (lie house half an hour ho
withdrew, giving place to other cullers.
Dledrlcb Van Dusen went home nnd
was taking off some of his breeches,
laughing gleefully at having got ahead
of bis rival, when be heard the town
clock strike 1.
"It Is 1 of the clock," he said.
He had scarcely spoken when there
came another stroke, lie slopped, with
a pair of breeches half off, and listen
