The greatest shavers in the world are
the Chinese. Every week tit least one
hundred million almond-eyed faces must
bo cleaned by the ra/.or , and every ten
days the hair is scraped from the scalps
surrounding at least that number of
long , black Chinese pig-tails. The bar
bers constitute ono of the most im
portant parts of the Chinese population.
They have tholr guilds and tholr trades-
unions , and , sonio j'cars ' ago they
brought the cmpoior himself to his
knees. There was an edict In force that
classed the barbers with lowest ranks
of the Chinese people , and that
prohibited them from entering
the competitive examinations forolllcial
rank. The barbers struck , and de
manded that this bo rescinded. For
ovoral weeks the whole Chinese nation
( vent unshavod. The black hair
sprouted out to the length and stillness
of the bristles of "the Berkshire hog , and
a wail of anguish rose from the throats
of millions of Chinese man. Public
opinion has its weight in Chilians in
America , nnd the emperor came to
terms. Now a barber's son may become
viceroy of China , and it Is not an im
possibility that a barber himself should
P aspire to bo minister to the United
The Chinese pig-tail is a badge of
servitude. A little more than throe
hundred years ago the Chincbo prided
themselves on tholr long , black hair ,
which covered the whole of their heads.
When they were conquered by the Man-
ohus , who rushed in from the north ,
their conquerors imulo thorn shave their
heads ns a sign of submission. Shaved
heads became the fashion , and now ,
even the Manchus themselves wear bald
scalps. The Chlnunmn has become
I'uoun or IIIH THI-TAII , .
Ho braids false hair into it to make it
longer , and pieces it out with black
silk thread. Ho oils It until it shines
like polished jot , and he lets this
greasy , black snake hang down upon
and soil the most delicate of yellow and
sky-bluo silk gowns. Ho has his hair
restorer just as has the American dude ,
and It may ho of advantage to some of
our bald-headed men to know that u fat
rat diet is supposed , in China , to bo
conducive to hair growing. I nwkod
my Chinese servant , while traveling
through to Peking as to the price * of
shaving. Ilo told mo that in the in
terior you could got a slmvo for a cent ,
and that the prices rose according
to the wealth of the cubtomor.
"Mandarins , " said he , "often luuo
harbors connected with their yamens ,
and the swell Chinaman is slmvod in
his own residence. Ninety-nine hundredths -
drodths of the shaving is , however ,
done on the street , and the harbor's
whole outtlt costs lost than $3. His
razor , which is in the shape of a trian
gle , can bo bought for from 5 to 10 cents.
The strop , made of cotton or leather ,
costs about a nickel , and his brass ba
sin is less than a dollar. Ho has two
little stools painted red , without backs ,
upon which his customers sit bolt up
right while they are being shaved.
These stools have drawers below them
in which his shaving utensils are car
ried , and ho goes with them hanging to
the ends of a pole , balanced over his
bhoulders _ , from" place to place , an
nouncing his presence by an immense
tuning forlf , about ten inches long ,
which he pounds against the stools
from time to time. Ho uses no soap ,
SHAVJ-.S WITH couVATIK. : .
Chinese women Ubually drebS their
own hair. They paint their faces and
blacken their eyebrows , pulling out the
hairs in order to make the arch like
that of a rainbow.
The heads of Chinese babies arc often
shaved , nnd , in Japan , you can loll a
baby's ago by its hair. The fu// is
shaved from the bcalp of the Japanese
infant as teen as it is born ; when it
grows to the ago of u certain number of
months a ring of hair is allowed to re
main surrounding the bald oasis of the
crown. A few months lutor a little tuft
is blocked out in the center of the oasis ,
and a palm-treo liico wisp grows upon it.
Then other little wisps are allowed
to como clo > vn under the oar , and , at
last , the hair is grown all over the head.
This shaving of the head makes the
hair very stiff , and the Japanese has his
head covered with still , black wires.
Ho looks as if his head were one gigan
tic cowlick , and ho has this crop to the
length of about ono inch. The old
fashion of shaving a strip from forehead
to crown , and of wearing the hair long ,
and doing it up on thu edge of this bald
strip in the shape of an old-fashioned
door-knocker , is being done nwny with
in the cities , and you lind itonly in back
counties , and in those who pride them
selves on belonging to the old regime.
Black or dark Vrown is the common
color of the hair of the oabt. A white-
haired Jap or a yellow-haired Chinese
would got into ' the dime museums , and
both nations' look upon red as the color
of the head of the devil. There ia a
tradition In Japan that the man who
drinks too much miki , or Japanese
brandy , acquires a redness of hair , and

As I traveled through the country. The
glrlet would nudge each other and whis
per "suki , suki , " as they walked behind
mo , and now anA then a Japanese hood
lum would point to my head nnd rnol
along nu though _ ho wore drunk. The
common appellation for the foreigner
in Japan and China is "Rod-headed ,
blue-eyed , Foreign Devil , " and as I
ilttcd into this description I was , I
doubt not , the bcaro-crow of the chil
dren of nt least two nations.
The Japanese girln are wonderfully
beautiful , and their hair would make
that of a Washington hello turn green
with envy. Yum Yum soaks her locks
in the perfumed oil made from the seed
of the camolin. She has them dros&od
by a professional hair-drossor , at the
extravagant coat of " 0 cents a time , and
she does this in her pretty little houbo ,
open at the street , to that the passer
by can , if ho will , inspect the whole
operation. She is very modest , but
she is not at all particular as to whether
her drebs is docolletto or not during the
operation. When it is done she has
her fuco powdered and enameled , her
eyebrows are painted , and bho
has as sweet a mnllo us can bo
shown by her BOX in any country
of the world. The most of her beauty ,
however , disappears with maidenhood.

her eye-brows and blackens her tooth ,
and this eye-brow shaving and teeth
blacking is ono of the most disgusting
of the old customs in Japan. The omp-
rebs and the Indies of the court arc dis
couraging it , and its days are probably
numbered. It originated. I am told , in
the desire of the husband to show that
she cared nothing to make herself at
tractive to others after she was married ,
seeming to lose sight of the fact that
she might make herself disgusting oven
to her husband. It is on the same prin
ciple that widows shave their heads
in Japan , and that old maids
shave off their oyo-brows in order
to' show that they have glvon up nil
hope of marriage. Suppose every old
maid in the United States should put
her forehead into the hands of the bar
ber to-morrow , think what a havoc the
ugliness produced would cause in the
families owning the eighty thousand
odd unmarried girls in Massachusetts.

TAND OK TUB SIIORT-HAIKUD ( URL.
All of the women of this country wear
their hair from one to two inches long ,
and their locks stand up like black or
gray bristles out from their cream-col
ored faces. A Siamese buttercup of
sixteen , with her plump , yellow cheeks ,
her bright black eyes , and her lithe ,
symmetrically formed frame , loosely
clad in the Siamese sarong , is a beauty ,
notwithstanding that her blr.ek hair is
short , and that her teeth are reddened
with betel-nut chewing. She is
as straight as an arrow
and as graceful us a gazelle
and her Jmir makes you thinic
of the saucy nugo boy of the stage. Take
the same girl thirty years later. Her
plum ] ) ohcotts are sunken , her chcpk
bones stand out and her jet black eyes ,
full and lifeless , look out of hollow
sockets. The skin of her forehead is
stretched with wrinkles like the cor
rugations of a wash board , and over
this stands out this short white or gray
hair. Her mouth has been discolored
and spoiled with betel-nut chewing ,
and her collar bono is the frame upon
which the parchinont-liko skin of her
person seems to hang. The old women
of Slam are the homeliest old women in
the world , and if ono married a Siamese
girl ho would need to keep a barrel of
Brown-Sequurd elixir on hand. This

Thuchlldron of Siam have their heads
shaved withlho exception of a lock on
the crown. This is not allowed to bo
touched until they reiicd manhood , and
the ceremony of cuttfng it off is ono of
the trrontest events of the cmild's life.
The hair cutting of u prince belonging
to the royal family costs thousands of
dollars. A great feast is given and the
barber who docs the work receives a
valuable present. Ho clips the locks
with golden shears and shaven th6 spot
with a gilded razor. When the heir
apparent to the throne is shaved in this
way the whole nation rejoices , There
is a grand festival at Bangkok , in
which the royal whlto elephants
take purl and feasting goes on
for days. Poorer children have
this hair-cutting done nt a Buddhist
temple , and the priest acts us barber ,
The Buddhist priests all over the cast
shave their heads , and there are 20,000
bnro-pated priests in Bangkok alone ,
All of the males in the kingdom are
supposed at some time in their lives to
become priests , and everywhere you go

grow as long'as they will. They are
very superstitious as to the day for
washing the head , and they consider it
unlucky to wash the head on Mondays ,
Fridays or Saturdays. They will not
cut tnoir hair on Mondays or Fridays
nor on their birthdays , and , as the
birthday of the Burtnan comes once a
week , many of the people are restricted
to four days for hair cutting. They
have many superstitions in regard to
their hair , and this is the samq in
China and Korea. It is a legend in
China that no thick-haired man has
over hold the place now occupied by
by Li Hung Chang. The Chinaman
thinks that the man with a small head
and long hair will die poor , and that
the man whoso hair turns whlto while
ho is young will bo haunted by bad
luck. A woman whoso hair is glossy ,
whoso face is round and plump , may
possibly become the wife of the emperor -
poror , and the man with long eye
brows will live to be a hundred.
I did not see any barbers in Korea ,
and , as the people wear their hair long ,
there is probably no demand for thorn.
The average Korean moustache is like
the old joke gotten oil on that of the
dude's : "It is like u base ball game ,
having nine hairs on each side , and ono
in the middle for umpire. " If the
Korean has any board it is thin and
straggling , and as a rule his whole
strength , like that of Samson , goes into
his hair. The boys of Koreadress their
hair like the school-girls of America ;
they part it in the middle and wear it
in long braids down their backs. They
are not considered men.until they are
married , and it is at this time they
are permitted to wind up their hair
into a knot on top of their head and put
it under their hats. Ono of the most in
significant and contemptible specimens
of manhood in the far east is a Korean
boy of forty , with his nulr parted in the
middle , trailing in a braid below his
waist. Ho is kicked around ns though
ho wore six , because ho has as yet got

In India o'vo'rything runs by caste ,
and the barbiirs rank with the washer
men and blacksmiths. A barber's son
is always a biirbor , and a barber's
daughter is uro to marry a barber.
The Indian barber , like the Chinaman ,

shaving. IfoMemrloH all his tools

in expected to' take the gray hairs out
of your head , eyebrows and mustache ,
and like his Chinese brother , he pays
attention to cleaning the oars and to
shaving the face , even to the corners of
the oj'os. A high-priced barber in
India gels from 81,25 to $2 a month per
family. An ordinary shave costs from 1
to 2 cents , and a lir&t-clnss hair
cut is given for1 from 1 cent to u.nickel.
It is quite customary in the east for the
families to shuyo their heads when thny

I asked where it came from and my
guide told me it had just been cut from
the heads of the friends and relatives ol
the deceased. The Indian barber is a

I snail not soon forgot a shave and
huir-eutting which I suffered in upper
Egypt. The execution took place in the
city of Sioot , about three hundroed miles
above Cairo. The seat was a plain btool.
The barber was n dirty Turk , in : i red
turban and a white gown , and ho lirst
chopped off my hair with a pair of sheep
sheers , pulling it and sawing it at
every cut. Several times ho nar
rowly escaped my oars , and I was
trembling as though I had the ague
when ho began upon mo with his razor.
I had dismissed my guide , and I did not
know enough Egyptian to toll him that
I could dispense with the shaving. lie
used no boap , and ho wet my beard with
cold water from a polished brass basin ,
out of one side of which had been cut a
sort of half-moon hole. Ho fitted this
hole into my neck so that my head hung
over the basin , like that of John the
Baptist on the charger , and then
splashed the water up over my face
with his uromalio hands. When ho
thought I was sulllciently drowned , lie
