By fits he laughs and cries

Sir,
"Come to tin- subterranean

was the amusing playcard we
ate told with which Richard
Arkwrighl once amused the
Londoners and increased his
gain.
I he interest of the story has
given it such familarity as to
rob it of novelty. Why a man
posing as a critic in Nassau
choose the name Subterrane-
an Barber is a question to the
thoughtful mind. Its use
shows Arkwright's wit and
01 iginality. It increased his
c ustomers. He was really a
: barber and many barbers in
largecities live undei gr< mnd
but itsassumption in the pre-
sent case lacks reality, origi-
nality novelty and is profitless
Our critic whatever he mav
lack is not lacking in assump-
tion, recklessness ami abuse.
His attempted criticism bear
the in arks of assumption.

that ''Bonus" is the only

such a falsehood leaves the
impression that he who makes
it assumes the ignorance of
!his readers, or is himself very
ignorant or devoid of reason.
Another evidence of the irra-
tional. Mr. Editor let Subter-
