Rural visitors from Panama, Roke
by or "Waverly get a surprise now and
then when they visit Lincoln barber
shops. For at the conclusion of the
shave the tonsorial expert reaches for
a rubber tube, presses a mystical
spring and out rushes all sorts of un
adulterated wind.
The storm center of an artificial cy
clone travels around over the features
of the victim and now and then sends
cold shivers down his spinal column.
What is all this for? The question
is natural and proper. It comes from
the lips of the customer as soon as the
gale is over.
About this time the features of the
barber are stoical and calm. With ex
treme cautiousness he explains that
when the countenance of a customer is
damp it should be dried before the
man leaves the chair. Usually" the way
this was done was by rubbing with a
towel. It took considerable work to
make this satisfactory. Besides the
rubbing sometimes irritates an unusu
ally sensitive face now and then.
But Yankee genius has done away
with all of this. It has been observed
that a southern gale in August can
make dry tatters of green cornstalks.
Other shrivelling effects of air in mo
tion have also been observed. So genius
got the idea of drying the complexion

According to Washington gossip the announcement of an important
engagement may shortly be expected. Miss Mathilde Townsend, a
Woshington belle, and M. Constantine Brun, the Danish minister, are
the central figures In the romance. Miss Townsend Is a girl of simple
and unaffected tastes although she will Inherit a fortune of JSO.00O a year.
M. Brun is of very good family and stands high in favor at the Danish
court. There is quite an unusual romance attaching to this Ioe affair, M.
Brun, who Is forty years of age having been desperately In love, twenty
years ago with Miss Townsend's mother, when the latter was Miss Mary
pressed air apparatus are on the mar
ket. One. consists of a tank where the
air is stored and compressed by water
pressure. This kind works with little
or no attention.
Another brand of the apparatus has
a pump annexed and the atmosphere
Is put under pressure by the muscular
energy of the porter.
Four of the outfits have been placed
In Lincoln. The cost vnrles between
$50 and $75.
Ludicrous Incidents happened time
after time until the customers got used
to the innovation. A favorite trick of
the barber was to suddenly aim the
stream of air at the opening between
the collar band and the tlesh of the
man In the chair. The air poured down
his body In gusts and the frightened
one would make a Jump to get out of
the chair. Of course this was never
tried on people who would get "sore."
Once In n while there is an extreme
ly nervous man who doesn't want com
pressed air. After one trial he will say
so. Then the barber sighs regretfully
and falls back upon the old process
of face drying.

had been hypnotized."
