On this occasion he fell In with good

1 thought 1 had something smooth myself
once, but It turned out raw. There is a
Joke In what 1 Just said you may catch
it by and by. I went broke In Scranton,
and got on the tall end of a wagon with
a gross of Little Beauty safety razors.
"Tha streets were full of miners, and
all you had to do was to show them some
thing and they had their dollar ready
before they knew if they wanted It.
" 'Come on up!' I called out. 'I'll shave
any man in the crowd, and I'll give a dol
lar to every one I cut!'
"They came up, trusting as calves, and
before I got through with the first one
they were packed around so thick that the
driver didn't have to worry about his
horse. So he came back and wanted to
take a hand.
"He said he'd been In the army and
knew all about shaving. I tried to keep I
him off, but he'd put up the money for
the razors, and was feeling toplofty.
"Before he broke in I had shaved ten

closer, yammering to give up a dollar

the $100 I could almost see in my hand,
but I wanted to watt until some fellow In
sisted in buying right away and then it
would be a regular stampede. But all the
time there waa a little miner down In
front, trying to get me to ehave a chin
covered thick with steel wires.
"I knew the .Little Beauty couldn't stand
up against It, and every tlm he tiled to
catch ray eye I was bucy picking out fel
lows with easy whiskers.
"Finally, I had to move to the other end
of the tailpiece to get away from him with

giving a practical demonstration over there
he got hold of my driver and financial

when you go out there. None furnished
