While in the past azes the stars wesa 1 believel to control the destinies o' men ne of the sign, are as follows: : and nations, the moon has, from timav "To know wliere the sign is. find the lmmeraoria, also been supposed tos day of the month -and agwin t the day exert numer us inr.uences upon our on-the fonrth column you ha e the si n globe, not only aETecting its inhabitants, or place of the moon, and then find the b t even e tending to the whole e'ono- sign in the frontis le e and it wilLshow mv of nature; and wh le the figments of 1 you the part of tha body it go' ems." astrology are now expioaeo, . is a singu ar fact that the lunar mv ths have still a strong hold on the popular mind. , It would be a wearisome tasl to dis-1 cuss all the notions that have obta ned w.th respect to the infl- ences of the moon, a d we shall therefore sreak only ot thoe which have been most current- lv received. The e is a widespread belief that the moon has a decided in nenre upon the weather. Thus, for Instaa -e, it is thought that a change or' the weather : takes place when the moon changes, ! and neariy two thoi sand years ago the approach of w nds or storms was pre- 1 dieted by the di.lerent appearances of the horns of the new moon. If they both appeared blunt, a violent tempest was to be expected: f both bright and sharp, high winds were predicted. The turn-ing-up of the horns of the moon is snp-p sed to indicate lair weather; for it is then able to hold water like a basin; but if the horns are timed down, the water, so to speak, runs out, and the com ng season is wet. t is sufficient answer to this belie"' that men of so ence have - a?ain and aga n proved it to be false. The elder Herschel said that he had all his life watched the weather in connection with the changes o the moon, and had found that the latter exerted no ini.uence upon the former. Sir William Thorn p on lately stated to the British Scientific Association that he had carefully observed the ull moon, ihe new moon aad the moon in its quarters, and could fin I on relation between its phases and the variations of the weather. It is quite an ancient opinion that the best time for elling timber is when the moon is waning, for if it s cut when the moon is increasing, the wood, it was supposed, would rapidly decay. " This impression still pre ails in many countries. It is acted upon in England and German-, and in ranee the forest law forbids the catting o t ruber during the increase o the moon. In Brazil a dis-tingub-hed agriculturist in that empire asserts, as the result of his experience, that wood which was rr t cat at the' ul. o the moon was at once a tacked by worms and soon decaved. For the purpose of testinir this po'nt. Monsieur Do-hameL a celebrated rench agriculturist, made direct and accurate experiments, and th results t learlv proved tha: the ,ual ties of timber cot in d liferent parts o'the month are. the same. Akin to this belief is the notion, which extenaivelv prevails in Europe, that Seeds must be sown, and trees planted, when the m on is on the inert ase, if thev are expected t grow and flourish w.th v gor. Duhansei and others made e tenied obse -rations on ih s point also, which showed tha , as tar as the investigation was carried, this belief ha' I no oundation in fact, i .. The Romans bel oved that oysters and other fhe'l fish became larger daring the increase o the moon than when it was wan ng, and the notion is mentioned bv the poe Lucre us and other ancient writers, it nas been held. also. in . odern times; ' o the tab eot has been careiuUy examined by Bohnult. who. by comparing she 1 fi-h taken in dii erent periods of the month, fo nd that no d erent e could be detected in th"r cond.ton, Pltiiarvh, in one of his dinner talks. thus remarks: "Kuthedeniusof Sunium g-ive us at an entertainment a very large oar: the gue-tts wondering at the bigness f the beiist, he sa d that he had one a great deal ia ger. but in the ar-r ingot it its exposure to the rays of the moon had made it stink." It was su posed by the ancnts that the moon beams Kbed mo sture upon the animal sui s anccg and thus caa-el the pntre-1 act ion. I her - is also a belief at the present dav, especially in tropical countries. that the mooniieams produce a rapid decomposition on . eih and fish that are exposed to the r inlluenoe. : These restiits can be readilv explained without having to sup ose that there is any pe-cu iar property in the moon's "ra.s which produce this e ect. When the moon is shining b-ightly the -skr is clear, the dew is then copiously tie os-ited u; on thenn'mal substance then exposed, and tne mo. sture thus received tends to acce'erate putrefaction, o Ihe dew. then, ia the cau-e of this change, and not the moon: or this e eot would occur whe i the sky is clear, whether the moon 'a above the horizon or below .t. Among the farmers of ew England it use I io e said, and perha ts is now, that if pigs were killed in the wane of the moon, the salt pork would shr nk in the boiling but if they were killed during t'-e increase of tne' moon, the Krk would swe 1 n the pot. This may one o. the host of thin. -a that were brought over in the M yiiower for the not. on p evails in Su folk, ngland. "The nn shall not t-mite thee by day n r th moon by n'ght" is a verse that embodies a very old belief that the moon exerts a pernicious in flounce on persons exiosed to its ra s. In modern times this ini'.uence, however, has been doubled, and even den ed, though many accounts can be found where in tropical cl mates, persons sleeping beneath the direct rays of the moon hae bad their sight aflected, or the musi-les of tho face contracted, or their eyes drawn aside, and eterish SMnptonM produced. It is a quest on whether these ei ects were the results of any other in 'uences than the glare of light and the chill of the night to which the sufferers were exposed. The influence which the moon is supposed to exert on the maladies of the human body is a very ancient notion. Hippocrates held it, and it was likewise ma ntained by Galen. It has come down to our own iroes, though with diminished credit. Shakespeare n akes Mrs. quickly remark that FalstaT"d ed at the turn of the tide. ' The nezro n the West Indies says: "Hint ever shall so when the vater comes low. him al ways come when the tide is hi 'h." "It is aa true as thet.ospel " writes f'eneral Napier from Soinde, that at every full theferer." An opinion ' once prerailed that tha signs oi the ecliptic once governed the different parts of the human bod. and that when the moon, in her monthly circuit, passed through these signs she in uenced . that part of the body over which the sign presided. Thus, for Instance, the sign Aries governed the head and fa e, eo the heart, and so on; and the moon when in these signs a ected res ect;vely the portions of the body here mentioned. : In alma iace we not an reqaently find a frontispiece o . the human body, surrounded by the s'gnn, with lineli ected to the parts of the bod v which they were supposed to govern: an I in the co umns of the almanac there was one devoted to the s'gna - The writer has now Such an almanac before him. pub- usuvu ujj nuusua .c uomiwis, tM mi eitr. in, igOo. and the dire tions for the ., lms absurdity was believed in von. necticut to e tend to cattle, fcf ty years ag-v The word "lunatic (from T.Una, the moon i indicates a person of unsou d mi- d, and the general use o' the word is a proof oi the once prevalent belief that the moon was int'ma' el v connected with th'S form o disease. It is stated by l ardner, that he has met with man Intel ieent and well-educated ph siclans. who maintained that the paroxvsms of 'tisane patients are more violent whn the moon s full than at other times. On the other hand. Dr. Gibers, of Bre men, aiiims that in a long practice he was never able to discover any connec tion between the phen mena or this d s-e-tse and the phases o the mo id The writer once nna-tiontd an em nent nhv- sician. who for many years had the ohanre of an insane asylum, whether the patients were excited more than nana' when the moon was fu!L Re did not trive much credence to this belief. bnt remarked that possiblv the bright ugni causea oy tne rait moon migat ia crease their excitement. VY itn persons in sound health a bright moonli bt n'sht is not conducive to sleep, and it would not be rarpri ing if it should affect in a arrester degree the insane, suf fering from the e t rente susceptibility of their disorganized systems Such notions as that ad lack follows if the new mo n is seen over the left shoulder, or if a maiTiage take place when the - moon is waning, are to be classed w th thoe abs rdities that ra fortune attends the spillirij of salt, or the gathering of thirteen persons around arunner taoie. juar.jora (wnn. ) iimcs. a a- m , HifuurTanged.

Let me tell you in sober earnestness bow I am shaved in' a German barber shop. My barber is a good one, and he tomewnat in advance oi nis or tnren in many respects. e has introduced many reforms and innovat.ons, and has tec red th reby a very large and respectable patronage. His chairs are a trifle easier than any I have yet seen in Chemnitz, and he has a rather primi tive attachment fastened to their backs, against which you can rest your head. in one o tnes i cnatrs I sit me uown, rest ng my feet upon a little wooden stool one o bis most recent and mo t alarming innovations. He takes a wh to towel and as tens it between my neck snd mv ah rt-collar in iront, and' anoth er wh'te towel which he isstens between my neck and my sh rt-collar behind. He is then ? pproaohe by a little bov, his son. who hands him a shallow bowl. filled with thin lather. The arberdips his finee s nto the lather and smears my-' a with it. ' Cups and brushes are unknown here, bnt the lather is made iresh for every customer, and this is a step in advance of the American o a torn. At ter ru'ibing the lather in thor oughly he hands the bowl back to the bov. who bows and ret res. inen ne shares me. I have . ee:i edm a'ing h:m up to what I believe" to be t. e proper standard, and I th'nk he w 11 shortly be able td un erstand that I haven't got the cuticle of a cow-boy n r the cheek of a canal horse. He does pretty well now. At first he only went over my face om-e. On-e was all that was necessary, for he arried everything an ay, and gave me such a clean shave that I di not require his services again for a month. Icommnnica edto him aAb8t co Id. an as. de icately as I tould. the fact that I was seldom in a verv - eat hurry, and that if he would be ind enough to go over my face twi e. the first t.me very si- wly and the sec-end t me very ge'ntl , so that the ra or would nave a sootn ng eno t npon me, he would be conferring an ob i;at on or which I could .never sufficiently thank; him. His method of shaving even now, I regret to say, is not of a caressing nature, and 1 rind that I am re.inentlv It ted out or the cna r. Hut this s due to forgetfuness on his part and he always makes amends for s ch l.tt.e itnpleAsan'ne ses afte ward by rubbing his lOat-s eeve into mv eye, or by breathing hard into m ear and making me nervous . When he l as shaved mr the 1 tt'e boy approaches 'again w'nii another shallow bowl fil ed with cold water, and the barber applies that to mv burning face with his fingers, also. Then he applies towel, and he is done. If 1 wou d like to have my hair combed I must tell him so. He will not comb it un ess I do. Shavii g is one thing in Cermanv. and having your hair combed is anoth er. rune-tenths o thoee wno visit tne barber, or who are vis ted by him, do not have their hair dressed. It is no part of the ob, and is not incl ded in the regular fee. Mo t of t em come to bim with tnt-ir hair already a res sect. and others go to their homes after having and dress it themsei es. th ere, again, use a pocket-comb in the barbei-shop, to straighten out any little irregularities wh ch ma.' have been caused by the barber during the pro ess ofshav'ng. 1 he Germans, i oor as well as rich, are verv parti n'ar about their hair, and it is not allowed to sutler tne slightest neglect, vt bat ever the bar ber a ail ngs may be as a shaver, ne is a great success as a hair-dresser. I o i cannot leave his chair until each particular hair is made to lie in its own partii-ular place, and he can pat more kin s into your golden or raven or auburn or cardinal locks than ere ever dre mt o in your philosophy. Horat'o It is not the cut m here, e ther. for a barber to go o er your faon more han once, nor do mo t of them batne our face a'terward. As soon as you are shaved they thank von. and you aie ex- rjc ed to step to the wa h bowl, hard , and douse tour own ace . I think that one of the principal reasons for the backwardness of the t arber-shops in ermany is ihat they are seldom patroni el y the better class.. The lash onable and popular th n ''here is to have the l arber come to your room or your residence.

I go to the shop, like others, only when wish for some reason to break the usual appointment, or when I ara n too great ahuny to wait for the barber to calL 1 don't like the svs em, but it is the fashion, and ths would be a moumtul world if one did n t or would not or could not keep ui w;th he fash'on. When you are n Chemnitz yo i must get shaved like the Chemn tzerc. O course shaving at home is uncomfortable and unsAtis actory. The kit which the barber carries with him consists merely of a raror, some la her and a towel. There are no conven ences at hand, and the chairs can not in the very nature of things be suits ,e tor such a purpose. The onlv th ng n the way of a chair that I have been able to hnd which does not cr ck mv neck until 1 1 ara ent reiy disabled for business, is one of the species a led -easy," but Im it say that lather si ots here an I there nave not imo oved the ap earance or the tti holstery in the le st if a little domestic e ntroversy which is now going on should eoome too wrm or me, why I will get shave in ed, tor I'll be hanged if I'll go through life with a neck so stiff that I can not turn mv head without turning my whole body like an a tomaton Besides this shaving at homo arrangement sets a had example for the chi dren. The coming o the barber is an e ent in u-;, hnathonixh yonng lives.

Of course this is aw-tul, and cannot be tolerate I. I was astonished the other d y in mv baaber's shop. 1 was just a out to leave when a woman entered whose left jaw seemed to .be indisp sed. It was considerably larperthan her right .law, and s emed to be in amed. There were tears standing in the woman's eves My sympathetic heart was touo ed. and I put on my o ercoat and my gloves leisurely so that I might, discover the cause of her trouble. She sa d something in German to my barber, and my barber led her to a cba r in the center o the shop. On this chnir she sat My bar) er then pushed her head back, said something to ber in German, and she threw her mouth open. 1 1 new all aoout 1 er trouble now. She wanted to have a to- th i tilled. 1 have had several teeth nlled mysel . and I know oaueth-n about that delightiul sport. leit before the fun commenced. My barber is one of the regular, old-fash ioned surgeon barbers. Nearly all the barbers here are surgeon-barbers. They will not only pull a tooth for you, but will cup you, set your arm or your leg. paten up your head, amputate Tour finger, or straighten your ej es. They are employed to do these things only by the poorer classes, however. There are some of the est surgeons and den tists in the world in r?axony. ; 1 have hud something to say before about the backwardness of hotels, so that you will not be surprised to hear that none of them are provided with , barber-shops. I believe there is only one hotel in Berlin, .the magnificent ( entral. which has a barber-shop attachment, but even in this instance the shop is a long distance from the rotunda, 'and it is the custom in Berlin, , as elsewhere, to have the barber coma to your room in the hote . This is but another outgrowth of the infamous . fee b sinesa In order to get a barbo - you must first; ring for the waiter. The waiter enters that call in h s set ot books. - Then the waiter mu t send a m a -anger. .. You must give some t a ng to the messenger. Then when the barber comes it is expected that you will give him a 1 ttle extra change or his trouble. On his way out he probab-y divides with the porter and the wait- r. I have never seen a first-class barbershop in Euro e. - There aie none to be, found any whe e. I believ . which will compare with the ton serial pala es of Chicago or any of oar largercities- The prices char ed are very low from two-arid a-half to our cents for a shave, and about ten cents for a hair cut. Regular customers pay by the month or quarter. My bill for the last quarter was about eight marks, including fees, or equal to about U.su. And dur ng tne quarter l visited the barber, or he visited me on an average thre times a week. ' But man." a t me. when I hav been sad at heart. 1 would have given the entire $1.8 for tne good merican shave, and considered it cheap. Cuemnitz Cor. Lhtcugo Neus. Finding a Father.
