Two drops of tonlo on the hair Is all
that Is necessary," said one of the master
barbers. "We can't charge for haircuts
or shaves. Of cuurs. If a man really
wants a hair tonlo or a shampoo ws will
give It to him and charge a price that
will Include the ahave or haircut.
"Hut if a man wants merely a shave,
he will have to stand for a couple ot
drops of tonlo on his hair. That will
cost him 15 cents and he gets Lis shave
free. We have several kinds of tonic,
so he ran probably aelect one that will
please him. And a oouple of drops won't
muss him up very much, anyway."
