Joe. FITZKAM had a slide last Wednesday. It wasn't himself that slid it was
the ice on the roof and it struck him in the back of the neck, just as he
was looking out for a customer to shave. It nearly shaved his head off, but
he is all right, nevertheless.

Joe Fitzkam is as proud as a child with a new toy with his new barber chair and washstand. In fact, Joe's shop is now fitted up real handsome.

Our boss barber, Joe FITZKAM, has bought a complete new set of furniture
for his shop: a patent chair, latest style (it makes you feel like lying on
your back to the last day of reckoning), wash-stand and sideboards to suit.
With this new outfit, a good razor and a steady hand, Joe cannot fail to
command the respect of his customers.
