If the great increase in failures to SIOO,-

664,661 lost year, and especially to $43,893,-
079 in the second quarter, against $21,695,-
635 last year, gave no occasion for dili
gent search, failure returns would be
worth nothing. But to-day It is shown
that thirty banking failures for $25,822,652.
against thirty-one last year for $7,601,728,
accounted for much of the difference; that
265 brokerage and real estate failures for
$22,122,346. against 145 last year for only
$2,328,215, accounted for another part, and
that in building and lumber working and
trade, other large failures distinctly con
nected with those in real estate, explain
much more of the difference between man
ufacturing and trading failures luet year
In these and much less Important
changes In few other lines, are seen sub
stantially all the commercial disasters as
yet resulting from on amazing rise in
prices last year, followed by weary, but
largely successful, efforts during the past
few months to get back to a normal state
of business. When this is seen and the
remarkable steadiness in number and size
of the great majority of failures for not
exceptional amounts, there appears ground
for especial satisfaction that business has
been on the whole, so soundly conducted
under conditions of unequal danger.
The Iren Age makes the output of pig
233,413 tons weekly, July 1, but the de
crease of 16,000 tons has by this time been
exceeded, other furnaces having stopped
this month, and repairs of works and of
wage scales may yet occupy some weeks.
The increase of 56,9">8 tons in stocks un
sold implies decrease in manufacture
more than double the decrease in output,
and works of five'of the great corpora
tions ate waiting for decline in wages just
when the workers have looked for in
crease. Open markets are now admitted
at Pittsburg, where quotations have been
for some time nominal, and Bessemer pig
Is offered there at sl6.
Cotton speculation has held the price
too high for the comfort of foreign spin
ners who have not provided for all their
wants, but the arrangement by the Pall
River committee to dose for a m nth or
more a large pait of the New England

market for goeds.
The end of the crop year has brought
the usual estimates, which command no
more confidence than usual. If the coun
try can get out of a crop, officially called
647,000,000 bushels of wheat, all it wants
for food and seed and 5J0.000.000 bushels for
export, with considerable left over in sight.
It is the easy inference that anxiety is
needless. There is no evidence as yet, and
for some time to come cannot be, that in
juries sustained have been as great as
some suppose, so that alarm is not more
necessary than tl was last year.
Failures for the week have been 196 in

ODD POKER HANDS.
One Combination Couldn't De lleaten
In 4,5G0,000.000 Times.
From the Chicago Chronicle.
An exclusive little poker organization
the members of which are mainly Board
of Trade men, and which has its head
quarters in a buffet in the shadows of the
Rialto building, had two remarkable set
tings recently. That is to say, each ses
sion was made memorable by a deal of
The central figure in the first incident
was a young trader whom every one in
the wheat pit calls "Doc." because he
never was ;i physician or even a medical
student. There were seven player* in
the game, which usually is confined to five
or six. The pots always are Mg enough
to be interesting, not only because ton
dollar limit invariably rules and SIOO worth
of chips is the least ever bought, but also
because every one of the players is a
plunger at the poker table as well as in
hours of grain speculation. A pair of
aces frequently is played up to S4O or SSO
and "bluffs" of the most audacious kind
are practiced continually.
But this story' has nothing to do with
"bluffing." It is about how "Doc" clean
ed up all the money on the table on one
hand last Monday. He was sitting next to
the dealer in a s2l jackpot when the man
after him—known to his confreres as
"Shorty’’—opened it for the limit. The
I next player raised the bet $lO. and every
one stayed up to "Doc." He found the
seven, eight, nine and ten of heart* in
his hand, nnd considered it well worth
spending S2O on in a pot now worth sl2l.
But tho opener evidently had something
pretty good in his clutch, for he raised
That made matters exciting enough, but
interest was intensified when the man
who had made the first "tilt" pushed in
S2O worth of checks, so that a double rulse
confronted the rest of the players. Again
everybody stayed up to "Doc," and It was
palpable that a lot of good hands were
out. Ho realized by this time that he
would have to make a straight flush—that
is, catch the six or jack of hearts —to
stand any chance of winning, but success
would pay him nearly* 30 to 1 nnd he did
not hesitate about making good. The man
who had opened simply followed suit.
"Doe." of course, drew one card. Only
two other men drew, the others standing
pat. The opener, who had taken a card,
must have felt well satisfied with his
catch, for he bet $lO right off the reel.
The next man—he who had done the per
sistent raising previously—kept up the
merriment by putting In S2O. Three play
ers called and the dealer, who had drawn
one card, raised. "Doc" looked at his
catch. It was the six of hearts. All he
raised the dealer was $lO, because that
was all ho could raise. Not a man after
him dropped out, but four of them reach
ed a "show-down." The dealer raised
again and "Doc" went him better. "Shor
ty” went to a "show-down" and that left
ihe dealer and "Doc" the only bettors. It
happened that the latter had the more
money on the table, and the dealer soon
joined the other men in the "show
In all there was S9BO in the pot. With a
straight flush "Doc" was in a clash by
himself and scooped In all the cash. He
had not beaten anything bigger than two
sets of four.—one held by the dealer, who
had a gallery of queens, and the other
by the man next to "Shorty," who had
four fours. The other four hands were
The game was interrupted only' long
enough for the six losers to get out their
pocketbooks or rolls and buy more chips.
Not one of them claimed ever to have
seen a deal in which one player hnd sent
all the others to the "bone yard." But
the very next day they all took part In
an even more astonishing play.
A thin, sedate player, with glasses,
whom no one over accosted more famil
iarly than by his Christian name, Henry',
opened the usual s2l pot for $lO. Four
men merely stayed, the fifth man rais
ed and "Doc," who was dealing, and who
found himself with pat straight, con
cluded that it would profit him merely
stand the raise. Tho opener did likewise,
but the next man raised and three men
"1 stay," announced the original raiser,
throwing In $lO in chips. "Doe" by this
time had lost much of his faith in his
hand nnd contented himself with making
good. So did the opener and the player
next to him.
"Cards?" asked "Doc." picking up the
Every one of the four men stood pat.
There was a surprising fulling off In
betting. The opener bet a white chip, and
it was called all around.
"I’ve got a big straight,” announced
"So have I," said the next player, and
his answer was echoed by the other two,
It was true. After a little chuffing the
four hands were laid face upward and
each one consisted of an ace, king, queen,
jack and ten of mixed suits. There was
nothing to do, of course, but to divide
the pot, which gave a little profit to each
man who held a straight, but which was
a very tame if amazing result of the
holding of four pat hands.
"Doc." who is something of a mathe
matician, figures that the chances of four
hands like those described coming out in
:i single deal are something like 1 in

by Competent Dentists of the

From the Baltimore Sun,
In a paper presented to the American
Medical Association at its meeting in At
lantic City last month Dr. Richard Grady
of Baltimore, who is dentist to the United
States Naval Acadmey, said:
"In my office there is a motto, ‘Good
teeth, good health.’ suggestive of the cen
tral thought of this paper:
Without good teeth there cannot be thor

not be perfect digestion.
Without perfect digestion there cannot

"A few years ago I discovered that not
one of the 500 children in one of the pub
lic institutions in my city had a tooth
brush. The children of that institution
are now supplied w'ith toothbrushes, but
I fear there are many similar Institutions
in the world where the toothbrush is nev
er seen and the dentist never heard of.
Much Decay Preventable.
"I am fully persuaded that more than
50 per cent, of dental caries is absolutely
preventable by medicines internally ad
ministered. which act specifically in the
mouth; alike pleading and imi>erative Is
the appeal to both ambition and intelli
gence to prevent, rather than to repair,
the ravages of decay. If the teeth are
not allowed to accumulate deposits on
either their exposed or protected surfaces
they will, it is claimed, be exempt from
"Given the varying predispositions of dif
ferent individuals to earies, which is gov
erned by the law's of heredity and envi
ronment. the growth of micro-organ isms
in the mouth Is in proportion to the
amount of disturbance they suffer or rest
and opportunity they enjoy.
"Treating diseased teeth of school chil
dren at public expense seems entirely out
of the question at present; yet why
should it he less reasonable to have visit
ing dentists than visiting music teachers,
and drawing teachejs, and teachers of
physical* culture? The position of visit
ing dentist in our public schools would
not be a sinecure. There would bo work
to do every day. If bad teeth could be
prevented the gain to the state and the
individual would be of enormous value,
as It Is wonderful how many diseases can
be traced indirectly to bad teetji.
"It is the noble privilege of the teachers
of the country to promote in some degree
tbp preservation of the teeth of those
under their care, and this they can do by
inculcating early nnd earnestly and with
the emphasis of a high religious duty the
principles of dental hygiene.
"The same spirit which has led to en
listing the active co-operation of the pub
lic schools concerning measures for pre
venting the spread of contagious diseases
of childhood should be insisted upon in
the care of teeth.
A Toot bhrii wh Drill.
"The inculcation of cleanly oral habits
among children should be insisted upon.
It is just os important and as necessary
to keep clean teeth as It is to keep clean
hands and face, because all the food we
eat must come in contact with our teeth.
It is essential that a child he taught how
to brash the teeth properly. Brush the
upper teeth downward and the lower
teeth upward on their inner and outer
surfaces, preventing injury to the gums
, and effectively cleaning nil the crevices
of the teeth. A toothbrush drill at school
Is as needful as any gymnastic exercise
for the preservation of health. There Is
strong reason to believe that many dis
eases of the nervous system, respiratory
organ* and alimentary canal may be due
to the fact that the masticatory organs
have been neglected.
"We nr now able to say to teachers
and pupils that It has been proved be
yond doubt that decay of the teeth is
caused by two different profesnes—(l)
chemical. (2) parasitical thi the pre
vention of dental caries depend*, first
of all, on strict cleanliness of the mouth
and teeth, the Importance of which can
not possibly he overestimated. Undoubt
edly it can he sold that the toothbrush
nnd plenty of cleen water stand at the
head of all measures of this nature, mid
that the next prophylactic means is the
intelligent use of proper antiseptics. \
tepid salt solution has been recommend- i
ed as nn inexpensive nnd effective anti- j
septic for rinsing the mouth, and where
there is u tendency to bleeding of the I
gums powdered boric mil may be used
One thing not often spoken of in refer- j
enre lo cleaning teeth is the value of j
rinsing. Many patients know nothing i
about It and the average dentist dors not
think It worth while to mention it to 1
them. The matter of closing the lips and
forcing the water vigorously back nnd
forth between the teeth exercise* n Im
portant part In cleansing them.
C lennncs* n Defense.
"We want to emphasize the startling |
fact that the teeth of children have been
deteriorating, until now it has become a i
serious matter. Of all causes of decay
i*ncleanness is perhaps the most fertile.
The clean tooth may decay—the neglect
ed tooth mutt decay. It has loet its
chance of self-defense.
"We want children Instructed in the
care of the mouth and teeth, In cleansing
the whole mouth, including the tongue,
nnd the sooner this is done the sooner will
the many evils arising from the present
neglect be stayed. Children must be
taught some system of oral hygiene. See
that tK-hool children receive thorough in
struction as to the utility of good teeth.
These same children will soon be the par
ents of the community in their turn, and
they would have the advantage not only
of better mouths of their own, but of be
ing in a position to care for their own
children. Instead of regarding the teeth
as foes children should be taught to re
gard them as special friends and devote
to them their best care.
Systemii Susceptible to Dineanf.
“We w-ant to remedy the possibilities
of the propagation of disease In public
schools through the present condition of
children’s mouths and teeth, and lhei

"Take it all in all, care of the teeth
pays in comfort, in beauty, in the con

"It has been demonstrated that 95 per
cent, of children have permanent teeth
decayed, ranging in number from 2 to 16
per child. When one has attained full
growth it may not matter much whether
the food is masticated by natural or arti
ficial means, provided it is properly done;
but with children it is a different mat
ter, and the state of our children’s teeth
is a question of national Importance.
"Relatively few’ children have teeth
filled, and those under 10 years of age
rarely have the dentist’s care except for
the extraction of loose and aching teeth.
"The teeth and mouths of many chil
dren are in an unhealthy and disgusting
condition, which not only injures their
own health, but also the health of the
teachers and other children w*ho are com
pelled to sit with them; it may be in
overcrowded or ill-ventilated rooms.
"A source of danger from decayed teeth
is the possible introduction of parasites
into the tissues with which the teeth are
connected. It is very difficult to prevent
small particles of food from lodging in
the cavities of carious teeth and there un
dergoing decomposition. It is not impossi
ble that by such means, especially If the
cavity is the root channel of the dead
tooth, a parasite might enter the soft
"There is also another source of danger
to the younger children who exchange
pencils and chewing glim, which, after
being in mouths mixed with pus, are plac
ed in the mouths of other innocent and
unsuspecting children. These practices
may be democratic, but they are vicious.
"As to girls whose teeth are defective,

FISH SKIN' LEATHER.
tinny Articles Mode Out of n Hither
to I'mised Product.
From the New' England Grocer.
The United Slates Fish Commission has
been making a collection of leathern made
from the ekins of fish end other aquatic
animals, especially of those which prom
ise to be of practical utility. Several
varieties of fishes have skins that make
an excellent leather for some purposes.
Salmon hide, for example, serves so well
in this way that the Eskimos of Alaska
make water-proof shirts and boots out
of it. They also cut jackets out of the
codfish skins, whith are said to be very
serviceable garments. In the United
States frog skins are coming into use for
the mounting of books, where an excep
tionally delicate material for fine bind
ing is required. There are certain tribes
of savages who make breastplates out of
garfish skins, which will turn a knife
or a spear. A bullet will pierce this
breastplate, but it is said to be impossi
ble to chop through the material with
a hatchet at one blow. Together with
such a breastplate, these savages wear a
helmet of the skin of the porcupine fish,
which is covered with formidable spines.
Fastened upon the head, this helmet
serves not only as n protection, but in
close encounters it Is used to butt with.
The Gloucester Isinglass and Glue Com
pany recently manufactured some shoes
of the skins of (he codfish nnd cusk. On
the lower Yukon, In Alaska, overalls of
tanned fish skins are commonly worn by
the natives. Whip handles are made of
shark skins, and instrument cases are
commonly covered with the same mate
rial, It being known under the name of
shagreen. Whale skins are said to make
admirable leather for some purposes,
while porpoise leather is considered u
very superior material for razor strops.
Seal leather dyed In a number of differ
ent colors Is included in the collection
of the Fish Commission. This leather is
obtained from the hair seal, nnd not from
the fur-hearing species, nnd is used to
a considerable extent in the manufacture
of pocketbooks. The hair seals are still
very plentiful in the North Atlantic
ocean, and as it is not difficult to kill
them, they afford a very promising source
of leather supply. Wnirus leather has
come into the market recently, but as
the animals are being exterminated rap
idly, It will hardly amount to much com
mercially. Another kind of leather now
seen on sale is that of the ee a elephant.
Up to within n few years a species of
sea elephant was found on the Pacific
coast, ranging as far north as Ix>wcr
California, but the animals have been I
so nearly exterminated that they are now
rarely seen. Another species Is to be
found in the Antarctic seas, chiefly on i
