A Bearded Man.

A remarkably “hairy man” lives in small industrial town in France. He is now (according to the * Secolo’) sixty-two years old, and hisbeard, which he wears wound round his neck, is nearly 3yds long, so that when its owner unfurls it to its full length it reaches down to the ground, and has then to be taken up and earned over the arm, as a lady would carry her train, Louis Goulon, the owner of this phenomenal beard, is a laborer in an iron factory, preferring to earn his living as an expert^workman to following the “ calls,” of which he has had a great many, to becoming an exhibit under the care of a wandering snowman. When Goulon was twelve years old, and while yet his face had the freshness of infancy, his whiskers, moustache, and beard began to grow ; at fourteen years of age he wore a beard over a foot in length, and now it is still growing.
