A bit of the history of the town is now in order. Sharpsburg was Laid out in 1763 by alas for the Good old Days of to sorial Art then the patient took what the Barber thought Good for him but novo he knows what he wants and does not hesitate to say so. 5wraight up in the Bick or round a the talkative ton aerialist asked As he finished tacking the towels 1er his client s Neckband and reached hit shears. A not Mach pc the top j oat trim it might up and Dows Tea air. A right share to no. A erg Wall air. Juat Jon say. Ton done Tuke thew English a naming by the earn do Yon quite it they do nuke Yon look ilk in of act a or mint tour directions remind me that hair Tufts la nothing at All like it used to be la not Bai w serious a business As it i Whan i graduated from the Lykens Lay correspondence University of sitar and heir cutting at which i also took Ost graduate course in massaging and a Pooing. When i Learned my Ait Parlier stress was Laid on hair cutting. When i ant entered this profession r cutting was highly respected from Ute Bop stat both of the Baxter and the at a Fen who entered n parlor to a hts hair but appreciated what a was it to Hare done. It was Mach like if to in dentist to Hare his a Rilands d. Uteri was nothing nonchalant in Banner nothing flippant. If there i a artists knew that it was assumed. In Thooe goad old Days a client when bated himself in the chair simply said gashed a hair Cut. He gave no directs Are there was Bat one Way of cutting r and the artist he addressed was a aped to know a hat one Way perfectly. By there was Bot one style Bat there a two the Plain bar Cut and the clip. It method of both was the same though Only difference being in the Quantity Lair removed. When toe artist had the patient pre id for the hair Cut he asked him no Stoma Bat went to work immediately. It he took his shears and removed the growth. This was usually heavy for Thoro Days people did not have their r cot so frequently. They Only had it e when the necessity became pressing. After toe surplus hair was removed the St then proceeded to toe finer part of work. He trimmed the hair round the in and a a sort of an a aesthetic to the at he usually combed the front hair Ronld Cauro the client to keep his eyes tightly closed through the rest of toe ordeal for fear strands of hair would fail into them. Thus the Man was spared the humiliation of seeing his thatch mowed. Quot unless the client objected toe clippers Woald be applied. Beginning at the neck and taking drat Tho edges the Barber Woald clip Sway until the Scalp showed White. If he client wished though be Seldom did the clippers would be applied to toe top of the Bead. Only when a Man feared his hair was falling out or else did no to want to come Back to toe to sorial parlor for another six months did the artist clip the top hair. Quot after toe artist thought enough hair had been Cut he Pat on the finishing touches. In those Days you know it waa Tbs Tonso Laust who was the judge of haircuts and the client had nothing to say about it except to express a wish for a shampoo or a tonic rub. He was not expected to give any directions concerning the Quantity of hair to be removed beyond stating hit desire in the matter of toe clippers. Quot with the actual cutting of the hair accomplished the artist always asked the client if he wished it combed on the Side or in the Middle. Of course he saw plainly when the Man sat in the chair just what style of coiffure he affected but he asked out of politeness. The question indicated a brotherly interest in the others desires. Quot then came the combing in those dear times no bar was Ever combed dry even if the client had the temerity to suggest it first the artist would wet the Brush and occasionally he Woald ase pomade instead of Bay rum. In All first class Ateliers it was customary to Nae pomade although Rome preferred bears grease or vaseline. Quot after rubbing the pomade in thoroughly the Tartlet Woald soak it in Bayrum in order that a pungent odor might be imparted. Then he parted the hair Laid his Finger against it and slicked it up with his Brash in a Ach a Way that it would curl at the ends in front. With this final attention toe client was discharged. Quot when a Man in those Days left a Barber a hop everybody knew Tost be had been there. If they smell him they could see bus hair and they knew that he had received the attention of a first rate artist if the studio he visited was of toe better sort the odor of the Bayrum Woald last three or four Days. Quot but this is All changed now and we artists have lost much of our prestige. A Man enters a studio my and gives his orders with the Soma positiveness that he Woald employ in a drug store or a Butcher a hop. He tells a exactly what he woo to and of we make a suggestion contrary to his expressed desire he is extremely Apt to become irked. Quot for instance we must ask him of he wishes his hair straight or round in the Hack. We touch toe clippers unless to says no and we must inquire of he wishes bus hair combed wet or dry. If a reached for the pomade Jar without him telling in to he would scream murder. If he thinks we Are taking off too much hair he does no to Bulltail to bawl us out Quot what la the consequence Why it is that a Man does no to think any More now of having his hair Cut than he does of getting shaved. Indeed there Are some Mon who shrink from the razor quicker Toon they do from the shears which is entirely opposite to the attitude held toward haircutting in the Halcyon Days Quot nowadays a Man alts Down in the chair and says he wants his hair merely trimmed. He thinks no More of it than he does of having his shoes shined and he might even ask for the police Gazette to read while you re working on him. Such a thing As Tost in the old Days was unheard of. Having your mind on something else when your hair was being Cut was heresy nothing less. Quot while you Are using your shears he looks in the Glass and of he thinks you Are taking off too much hair he tells you so. He treats you like you done to know what you re about a if he was the Sale judge of what he wants. He gives toe artist no credit for professional intelligence and skill. He reasons that its his bar that is being Cut and he therefore has a right to think. Quot after Yon Are through with him you must ask him if he wants Bis hair dry or wet but you do not ask him in what style he desires it combed. Ton Are supposed to comb it the same Way it was when you came in and you Mutt notice just what style he affects. Instead of politely asking him about it you arg Sug go a sought the Honor but Hagerstown got it. In the Early Days Sharpsburg was a great game District a favorite Hunting ground of the Delaware Indiana. There have been some mighty Hunters Ainee but the biggest game in Sharpsburg at the present time is office Hunting. Chapline s Tombstone is in a private graveyard two Miles from Sharpsburg along the Potomac River. It was destroyed in the civil War with Many other things in the neighbourhood and much of the first order including a speech by Lewi d. Syster of a create in. Who re it ponied on the part of Burgess Blackford. General Sickles hearing the music which did no seem to enliven the crowd stepped out to the porch of the Antietam hotel and said boys give these people something they know give them the band struck up Dixie and there was uproarious applause. Among the oldest houses in Sharpsburg is that of the late Henry b. Rorback. \ double Brick mansion built in 1816, now history of the founder of the town Bas owned and occupied As a country summer been lost. However Sharpsburg Bas Home by his descendants. Or. And or plenty of history left. Many of the Homes Harry j. E. Thomas. Henry b.

The first Boose built in the town Rohrback a Ford. Was a Long one. In this Sharpsburg does not differ from other Maryland towns. In the Early Days racing was a favorite sport St Sharpsburg As it was in All Maryland towns in which the English found a Home. When Belinda Springs two Miles Southeast of Sharpsburg were in full operation Tybout the second decade of the last Cen the writer of this article is indebted to or. E. M. Garrett for excellent pictures used in illustrating in to take it for granted that he wants it the a ame Way. Quot Many men demand that no Bayrum or pomade or water or anything else be put upon their hair. Few men get a real old fashioned thorough haircut any More. They simply want it trimmed and they want nothing special done to their hair or anything at All put upon it they want it to look Tho same As it did when they came in except that toe stringy edges must be shorn away. Quot now when a Nan leave a Barber shop y after a haircut nobody knows he Bas been there. His hair has no smell of perfumery on it and toe Good old Way of Curling it on the ends and clicking it Down on top is in bad favor. And if you try to do it when he a not paying attention you re perfectly liable to get murdered. Quot no sir Tontor Zaltsm is not what it used to be. Once we were the arbiters of to sorial fashion. Now we re nothing but the Humble carriers out of our patrons beating the tip game.
