closed Saturday evening and at the
termination tho officers woro forced
to tho conclusion that tho celebration
liad boon given at an outlay consider
ably greater Uian tho receipts. It was
flguJrlued that tho receipts from the
grand stand and bleachors together
with tho percentage and rents from the
concessionaires would meet tho ex
penscs, but the revenues from theso
sources wero Insufficient. Tho'storm
Wednesday night resulted In a loss of
probably ono thousand dollars In grand
stand fees and per contagee from con
cessionaires. Had a small admission
fco to tho park been charged, tho col
obratlon would havo paid out. The
amount of tho deficit has not boon as
yet nscortainqd, as it will requlro scv
eral days to audit tho accounts, and
tho members of tho holding company
will then go down in tholr pockets anj
pay tho deficiency.

Our dentist tells us a very interest
ing thing. Ordinary salt is ono of
tho best methods for sterilizing tooth
brushes that aro known. But not only
becauso it sterilizes is it so excellent,
but becauso it hns tbo effect of soften
ing tho bristles and making them ex
pand In n way. Ono of tho troubles so
frequently met with Is that Uio brlsUes
como out mid aro swallowed, causing
appendicitis. Tho salt causes tho bris
tles to swell and so remain in tho
brush. This may bo but another of
tho several million theories. It is im
portant, however, that bristles do causo
appendicitis. Now York Globe.
