LADIES WHO SHAVE.
A Female Barter Who Uses a
Thread Instead of aRazor
A Novel System Imported from
Qroeco and Patronized by
N , Y. Journal.
A novel phwo of BocUl life came to
the notice of a Journal reporter yes
terday , the details of whloh will afford
considerable Interest and possibly
some profit to ladles who are troubled
with hlrsato appendages. Through
the courtesy of an acquaintance an In *
trodnotlon was given the reported to
Sitjnora Ilelon Goorgldos , a female
barber , who shaves without a razor.
She resides on the first story of 112
Hester street. The Slgnora is a box
om-looklng brunette , with pleasant
features , and apparently forty years of
ago. She has two handsome looking
boys , one of whom aotod as Interpreter.
"My mother is n native of Smyrna ,
Aila Minor , " of these said , in very
B1IAVINO WITHOUT A RAZOR.
"Oan you doiorlbe the proem ? "
"Certainly ; bat my mother does
not use any razor * , and oho confines
her attentions inclusively to ladles.
She uses a thread Instead of a razor ,
and the process If not only moro
speedy , bntmora satisfactory. "
"Does thn lady object to giving mo
an Illustration of her skill ? "
After some coaxing the feminine
professoiconsented. Taking the ro-
por'or ir to another room , ho was ro-
qnostod to bare his arm. Taking a
strong J.non thread she placed one end
botwooM her tooth , and with a pecu
liar see 'saw motion with both hands
ho applied the thread quickly np and
down the arm ; the halt being caught
np by what appeared to bo 'a small
Blip-knot In the center of .tho thread.
This motion was continued for several
seconds with remarkable results , the
hklrs being quickly removed by the
now iiDiBs XT'E TREATED.
"Of course you will understand , "
oontlnuod her Interpreter , "that my
mother does not pretend to shave gen
tlemen ; their beards would bo too
hard and rongh ; bnt she has boon
very successful with ladles , and has
nlto a largo number of customers
who visits her regularly. "
"How long does It take to effect
ually remove a lady's moustaohii ? "
"Well , a brunette will got shaved
by her process onoo a month , blondes
once In three weeks. Very much de
pends upon the nature at.d growth of
the beard or moustache , as the ease
may ba. The first stage is to anoint
the skin well with an ointment , the
preparation of whloh Is a secret. The
idea is to soften the skin thoroughly ,
BO that the hairs may bo removed
without causing discomfort to the
"After the akin had boon well sat
urated with the clntment the hairs
come out very easily and the prepara
tion checks their growth for several

h "Do yon find many ladles who are
B&T.otod with board andmoustaches ? "
"Oh. yes. There are dozens of
them In this bit ; city. Brunettes are
more troubled in this way than
blondes , and the older tbo patient is
the moro time It takes to remove it.
My mother has many customers , real
fashionable ladles , who are fifty years
of age , who visit her regularly. Bat
the majority of her customers are
.professional pooplr , aaoh as actresses ,
.singers , and such like. They are
very particular , too , but money Is
mo object with them , and on special
occasions they do not hesitate to pay
as mnoh as $5 a visit. Her regular
fee is $2.
"Tho week previous to the Arlon
ball wo had as many as twenty persons
a day call hero to got shaved. In
deed , there wore moro came than my
mother could possibly attend to. "

The reporter suggested that an up
town office would probably pay bettor
than ono in Hester street ,
"Wo trlod that , and for some weeks
she had quite a nice ofliao on Union
Square , but owing to a money d < lH
onity with the man whom she WHS
compelled to associate with her In the
business , she loft and oamo hero Bat
her best customers have not left hor.
On the contrary , they visit her regu
larly , and some of them very tine
ladles , who come attended by their
servants. Bern , you see , aho moots
a good many uf her compatriots , and
it makes things moro cheerful for

the busiest ? "
"Ob , In the summer. She then
visits ladles at the seaside resorts anc
fixes them up for balls and parties
They pay her liberally. Her busies
time In the winter Is during the French
and Gorman ball season. "

After consultation with his motho
the youth replied that she supposed
she could reckon np a hundred t <

The slgnora's apartments In Hosto

German U Uugbt in the ichools. It re
moves the lait ground for excuse for the
