Ai f 1 1 t ho was inclined to think the fel

this idea, for the work was beiji done
well and skillfully and as no drunken

l hat he didn't like any such flourishes
around his head, and to stop it.
But tho only reply he received was the
press of the barber's finger against his

Uut his brain was not idle. It was
working with the rapidity of lightning,
...:d well it might.
Rhett had always been regarded as a
i -ool and brave young man ; he had proved
;i on more than one trying occasion.
And he determined in this last extremity
to be himself and to meet the sharp cun
ning of the maniac with an equal cun
ning. Then commenced a fierce and hidden
game between those . two a game in
which one knew the prize for him was
life, and, if he lost, the profit death.
"Henry," said the young man, and he
:;:iled. though his heart was beating
iat, "you shouldn't try to frighten a
,ood cr..-to!iier iu that way. You know
wa wouldn't kill nil old friend like me."
Til show you, Mr. Rhett," half
shrieked the barber, and the gleaming
eye grew fiercer and the voice trembled
Rlu tt saw that this had only added
fuel to the flame, and he began to despair
of conciliating the madman.
"Yes." said Casey, and his wild hand
grew wilder and the razor pressed harder
r.noii his victim's face: "yes. j-ou must
die this very hgur for the sake of science.
Why, it will be a noble death. You
ought to feel honored to perish in such a
The young man was now thoroughly
frightened, and he watched for an op
portunity to spring from the chair and
escape. But he looked in vain. Though
the barber .occasionally relaxed th-- stern
grip upon his throat, yet h- still held
him with his glittering eye.
"You see, the criminal will not know
that his hour is at baud. The barber
will, taken into the jail to give him "a
shave, and without a fear or tremor,
without a single thought of death, he

"Just 'i stroke like thK and it's a1!

lu-ip, for he thought his eu-1 ha 1 coin-..
Ca.ey, however, had only drawn t!n;
back of the razor acro. his throat, but
with such force and rapidity that it
burned like lire.
The situation was growing desp-rate.
In a minute the barber would be through
with his work. With one hand he ha 1
Rhett by the hair and with tho other
was finishing up the job, while his lip.i
kept muttering and his body sw.iyc '.
with excitement. Rliett knew wilii the
next sweep of that infuriated arm h
would meet his i"oo:n. Whatever he di 1
must be done instantly.
"Well, Henry," ho said, in lightly as
could, "sharpen up your razor well
'or; ynn start, for I don't want any
a-'liu-' job." For he thought wiiei.
the barber turned to do this he could
leap from tlie chair and get away.
"It's sharp enough for you, Mr.
Rhett," and ihe madman grew madder
as he spoke; "it's sharp enough for you,
lie had already finished shaving.
111. el t's heart iiliuost stood still.
In'ow we'll see if it needs to be sharp
er." said Ca:;ey with a demoniac laugh,
and Ii::c tl felt a sharp sting as the keen
blade cut the skin on his throat.
."But, Henry," he rapidly- ejaculated.
"I want you to make a success of this,
for it v. ill be a blessing to the world
but if you go on now I tell 3 0U it will
be a failure."
The razor stopped.
"Why?" asked Casey.
The maniac was interested. Rhett
saw that 1
iioint and he
JTJ I upon how hi-
used it. He had V . d upon the man's
pet mania. It seemed strange to him
now that he had not thong;;! of it. before.
"You will make a failure," he con
tinned, "because ymt Jia e told me all
about it, and I have already suffered
as much suspense as the criminal on the
gallows. Besides, when I feel the razor
giving me the fatal wound I will shriek
out in agony, and the people will say
t hat I suffered a terrible death. They
will not believe you then that it would
le the most painless mode of execution.
So you see, Ilenry, you would defeat the
very object you are trying to accom
plish." The barber withdrew the razor and
held it motionless in his hand. Rhett
breathed easier and became eloquent on
the subject of the experiment.
".Now, tho next man you shave,
Henry, don't say a word to him on the
subject, but all at once, in the twinkling
of an eye, put hiui out. And I believe
you will become a greater man than the
inventor of the guillotine."
"Well, Mr. Rhett, I believe j'ou are
right, about it," and he began to close
The mania was wearing off, and in its
stead there came a playful and mischiev

"Ah, Mr. Rhett,'' he said, "you would

Afraid to cross him in his humor,
rrarett replied, ihor.gh it almost broke

it will look better."

A Plea for Iudiffereure.
A little indifference to one's self, to
one's food, one's personal appearance,
clothes, and even one's mental and moral
condition, is a wonderful aid in life.
When I refer to indifference to one's
moral condition I do not, of course,
wuh to be an advocate of license; but I
do protest that it is well, having done
one's duty to the best of one's ability, to
await the issue with trauquilit-. All
