Young Man Mistook Chair Car for
Barber Shop.

A Frisco passenger conductor tells a story on a farmer who, he says, boarded his train at Lacygne, Kas., yesterday.

According to the conductor's story, the young man entered a chair car for the first time in his life. He was obviously ill at ease, and failed to sit down. After the train had proceeded several miles the conductor, passing through, noticed the embarrassment of the passenger and asked him to take a seat.

The other looked timidly at the comfortable, linen-covered reclining chairs, then replied:

"No, I guess not. Pa always cuts my hair and I usually shave myself."
