retarding the ubiquity of the niicrojbe Is not JugtiftCTby fact there Is one place east In which the London Lancet points out eternal vigi lance Is the price of safety That place is the barber shop The hands of the barberzand the utensils which he employs necessarily come Into very Intimate cofltact with the scalps and faces of the persons upon whom he operates and Should the germs of disease beu present It Is evident that the danger of their triins mission Is very great Indeed Nothing is harder to disinfect than a hairbrush At present few dermatologists doubt the bacterial t origin of scalp diseases and their prevalence the Lancet believes may be traced directly tq infected brushes In barber shops The Lancet notes that although noth ing has been done by any public au thprity In Great Britain to regulate the barbers trade the state of New York has attempted with considerable sue cess to render the tonsorial parlor more sanitary and makes these suggestions- If every customer could have his own brushes his own razors his own towels and hisi own there could be no In fectIonfromcm customer to another and the only danger to be avoided would be the transference of disease from the barber himself This exclusive use of the Instruments employed is almost a counsel of perfection and Is rarely attainable but much less will serve to minimize the risk In the flrst place It is essential that the hands at leastot the hairdresser should be free from disease Between every two customers the hairdresser should wash his hands and thus remove much of the risk of carrying infection Fresh towels for each patron and the careful disinfection between customers of razors and other paraphernalia ore equally Important with cleanliness In the person and garments of the barber himselftThe head during the operation of shaving may be rested upon a clean piece of paper If the cost of towels Is objected to Brushes areas the Lan cet confesses difficult tot disinfect but they may be made comparatively in nocuous by ordinary washing In soap and water while the use of formalin should effectually destroy the hardiest g rm Razors may be thoroughly cleansed by boiling The contention that this process injures the edge is denied by so high an authority as the hygienic council of the Seine Combs which should be of metal l and scissors may be easily disinfected In boiling water In conclusion the Lancet says The use of a stick of alum should be prohibited for it certainly Becomes stain ed wIth blood and may easily spread dis ease Powder puffs should be replaced by pieces of cotton wool which can be burn ed after use Lastly we put a most Im portant regulation no one suffering from any obvious disease of the scalp or face should be served In a pybllo hairdressers
