Barber Defend Ilia Craft.
RAVENNA, Neb., Jan. tO.-To the
Editor of The Bee: Will you kindly pub
lish the following, In answer to an article
that appeared In the Omaha World
Herald in which a pill peddler assails
the noblo profession of the tonsorlat
artist? It Is a matter of speculation In
my mind as to how mUch this Omaha
physician receives for advertising some
safety raxor manufacturing; company.
For the benefit of the Orofha
physician who "excoriates unhygienic
barber shops." I want to state that
there are some unhygienic shops, but
most of the up-to-date barber shops aro
aa hygienic as It Is possible to be con
sidering present conditions and prices. In
my twelve years of barber experience I
have never infected anyone with a sk!n
disease In any way, shape or form', I
have not even turned out a sore face. I
would like to ask this Omaha physician
If he Is aware of the fact that the aver
age barber uses from two to four gallons
of hot running water to every man he
shaves? Hot water Is cheap, Is a good
disinfectant and entirely In keeping with
the 10 or 15 cents we are obliged to
chargo for a shave.
Any barber that Is a barber will
sterilize his razor whenever It Is neces
sary, as he will also refuse to shave a
man with a diseased skin, and I do not
believe there Is any barber that will not
sterilize his pinchers before using on
an Ingrown hair. The Omaha physician
points out the fact that the razor strop
should also be sterilized every time a
man Is shaved. This is a puzzle that
never has been solved and I would like
tb havo the doctor tell me how a strop
can be sterilized even once and then he
fit to use ever afterwards. Perhaps the
doctor would suggest using a different
strop for every man shaved. Thli? would
be Impossible. A barber shaves from
forty to fifty men per day, A good strop
costs about $3 and It takes about two
months to break It In before It Is fit
for use. It Is then worth about $10.
Thus It can be readily seen tlmt If a
barber would use a different strop for
every man It would be a mighty slow
process, besides u barber would be
obliged to take Instructions In h,lsh
The barbers are obliged to charge 10
or 15 cents for a shave and a great .many
customers kick on these prices. If We
went through all the red tape our
Omaha doctor would dictate we would
have to charge at least $10 the shave or
get some other graft. It may be that
tho man who wrote tho article In tho
World-Herald Is a doctor, and It may bo
that It Is merely a paid, advertisement
For tho benefit of those that patronize
barber shops I want to say that they
may rest at ease, as there are no barbers
hut what use antiseptic faco lotion
after a shave, thereby thoroughly ster
ilizing the face. J. L. SISTAK.

LINGLE. "Wyo., Jan. IS. To the Editor
of The Bee: I see in your issue of Janu
ary 7 that there are 3,000 men out of work
tn Omaha and that the city Is going to

men they are, but If they are llko the
men that tramp through this country In
the sumrner they nro not worth feeding.

There Is lots of land laying Idle In this
country simply because wo can't get help
In tho summer, and we can't afford tn
keep help In the winter on account of
wages being so high. I think it would
be a good scheme for you to ask some o
the Idle men to go to work on a farm
for $15 or $20 per month and board for
this winter. I think they would tell you,
as they have told me lots of times, that
they would not do a day's work on u
farm for Old Christ. I think those are the
kind of men that your charitable Instl
tutlons are exhausting their facilities to
take care of. I think If there was no
charities, free lunohos or soup houses
there would he more of them stay In tho
country where the grub Is raised, and
be anxious to hold a job, when they got
one, Instead of hiking bock to the, city
