His promises to pay were uot secured. It looked doubtful whether he ever would settle, and future favors were denied him. But be shaved he must. Ten cents by " hook or crook " rarae into his possession, and it won the smiles of the razor man. His turn would come next. Meanwhile he stepped into a neighboring saloon and lost his money in a bowl of punch. His supply of " cheek " was not however dimmished, as he retumed to have his physical cheek scraped. Visions of future credit floated dimly through his mind, and he smiled inwardly at the cunning way in which the humble African would be "taken in." The scatterïng hairs were brushed from his coat, and then he said that that ten cents was invested. But it was a mistake in him to make that deelaration, and for that the knight of the razor knocked him down, and kicked him, repeating the process until he was tired and Daniel was landed in the guter. He aróse but aaid not a word, and quietly withdrew to a more peacable locality another shave ahead.
