There was nn increase in the month
of April of nearly $3,000,000 in the
amount of money outside the treasury.
This will he distressing intelligence for
the silver men, who are trying to
frighten the country into the belief that
the currency is Ueing contracted.
Anarchists and socialists would d
well to take note of the American voice
this centennial year. The stars and
stripes are good enough for Americans,
and if th; off scourings of the old world
wish to float any other they will have to
go back home to do it. They don't be
long upon this side of the Atlantic In
It is quite true as asserted by- an able
contemporary, that there were three dan
gers threatening this country a hundred
years ago tlavery, secession and free-
trade. Two of them have been forever
removed, thanks to the loyal soldiers of
the rebublic; and the third received a
backset last November from which it ia
not likely ever to recoyer, thanks te the
intelligence and patriotism of the people
who vote the republican ticket Globe
A prominent manufacturer remarked
recently that he had advertised for yeais,
but failed to appreciate the value of Lis
"ad" and read the secret of its power.
until he made aa extended trip west to
risit old and seek new trade. Not until
then did he do his "ad"' full justice.
Hundreds of miles from home, in a land
of strangers, he learned the silent yet
potent influence of bis "atV in a trade
journal. Ilis name and reputation had
preceded him, and though a stranger,
his "ad" was the "open 8?same" to many
an otHce. To put it homely, though un
acquainted with his face, they were ac
quainted with his name. Harness.
Ock Canadian neighbors who profts
to be so greatly exasperate. over the
action of this government in closing tl.e
Behring sea against their prowling ee;il
fisherman will gain nothing by indulging
in threats. The United States will not
c frightened from J.Ijs policy deemed
nectsiry and proper in the circuiusi&ces
by Canadian blmter, from whatevr
Bourse it may proceed. The question of
the exclusive jurisdiction of this country
over Behring sea, by virtue of a treatj
made with Kusia when Alaska was pur
chased, will doubtless, in due time b.
determined by an international conven
tion, but meanwhile this government
will insist upon its claim to such juris
diction, and will maintain it, reardle?
of Canadian opinion or menace. It could
not open this sea to Canadian fisherman
without permitting those of otln r
countries to enter and this would
mean the speedy destruction of the
fisheries. No such folly is likely to oc
cur under the present administration -Bee.
That wai a noteworthy meeting of the
Southern Manufacturers' Association held
at Augusta, Ga., on the 1st inst., and
President Lick man, in his opening ad
dress, struck the keynote of industrial
progress. He said:
"We should control the markets of
South America and Mexico, and to ac
complish this end we should invoke gov
ernment aid. Our flag should float over
every bale of goods which leaves our
ports. The British government, taking
advantage of the supposed trouble be
tween China and our government, will'
the hope of prejudicing that country
against our goods, has passed a law re
quiring every piece of goods manu
factured in this country and passing
through England to China to be branded
'Manufactured in the United States of
America.'' We would like to have our
goods reach China without passing
tl'rough England, and without use of
English bottoms. Give us American
ships. Let China see the American flng.
If our government would lend a helping
hand in placing our products in foreign
land it would not be long before yon
would see "manufactured in the United
States of America" on goods made in
There is genuine patriotism as well as
business sagacity in that kind of talk.

METHODS OF KEEPERS WHO OPER
ATE ON MENAGERIE TOOTHACHES.
Pullluic the Hippo's Tooth with Illock
and Tackle .Sponging Out the Mouth of
m Ferocious Hyena Gratitude Displayed
by the Wild Ileaats.
There is a new profession. It is that
of animal dentistry. The increased value
of fine animals, as well as tho growing
popularity of menageries, have called at
tention to the importance of preserving
tho health of tho more expensive mem
bers of tho brute creation.
A man who owns a $10,000 horse, a
$1,000 dog, a $5,000 pig, or a $5,000 bull,
is ready and glad to pay an animal den
tist to euro some dental disorder which,
if left alone, might seriously injure, if
not kill, the suirerer. The case is equally
strong with the showman who pays far
up in tho thousands for lions, tigers, ele
phants, hippopotami and rhinoceri.
Tho treatment of domestic animals is
of course familiar to all. They are so
accustomed to look to man for the grati
fication of their wants that it is not sur
prising they undergo the pain of a den
tal oieration without any greater resist
ance than that shown by a little child or
a very ignorant man. Tho most surpris
ing thing is the conduct of the wild ani
mals under similar circumstances.
A BIO THING IN DENTISTRY.
One very interesting Lnstanco was that
of the unwieldly hippopotamus in Bar
num's "greatest eIiow on earth." The
animal seemed sick for at least a week
and neglected its food to such an extent
as to alarm its keeper, George Conklin.
It groaned and showed deep distress day
and night. Whenever Conklin ap
proached the huge beast it opened its
mouth and moved its tongue. At first
the keeper thought that it was begging
for an apple, a boiled onion or carrot.
When it rejected the delicacies be threw
into tho distended jaws, he concluded
that it was sickness, and careless of tho
risk examined the tusk like teeth.
The hippo never moved during the ex
amination until tho bad tooth was
touched by the keeper's band. Then it
groaned and licked the ivory with its
tongue. Conklin, satisfied with his study,
procured some aconite and sulphuric
ether and a pair of powerful pincers,
attached to a steel chain and tackle.
He arranged the latter so that the rope
passed over a heavy beam in the cage
and then rubbed the gums of the giant
brute around the painful spot with the
anaesthetic until nearly all the sensation
was destroyed. He then applied the
pincers and screwed them down until
ihey would lift a ton. The hippo scarcely
moved during the operation. The only
sijni of emotion it displayed seemed more
of j-aiisfaction and relief than anything
else. Conklin gave a sioal and the rope
was violently pulled by the menagerie
attendants. There was a sudden strain,
a pause and then the great fang 6prung
out of the jaw and dangled in the air
overhead. The hippo gave a thunderous
grunt, plunged into the tank and washed
its rnouth until tho bleeding ceased.
A n hour afterwards it was eating na
turally. When Conkling approached it
showed every symptom of gratitude
1 1 oiii endeavoring to rub its slimy head
against liis body and wiggling jts funny
little taiL The tooth was eight and a
half inches long and was ulcerated near
ly all the way from th bottom of the
roots to the edge of the gum.
A SLIVER IN HIS JAW.
Another case which more strongly il
lustrates the mastery of man over the
am.ual jvorld was afforded by a fierce
and very dangerous hypiia. II? was so
ferocious that he attacked his mate in
tho same page upon the smallest provo
cation, end on one occasion tore pff the
end of tho latter's nose. His keeper,
though a veteran in the business, seldom
ventured into the cage, and then did so
only when armed and accompanied by
in. fellow employes. One day in gnaw
ing a very largo and bard bone, the
hyena in crushing it, split it into splin
ters, one of which pierced the jaw. So
great is the muscular power of the brute's
mouth that the splinter was driven down
at least four inches Jixto the gum. The
hyena did his best to get it out, but to
Inflammation set in and within forty
eight liours he was almost crazy with
agony. The keeper in the meantime, at
tracted by tho animal's constant roars
and groans, had passed nearly all his
time in front of the cage. On the third
day the hyena became very weak and
could hardly stand. Suddenly he
craw led over to the bars and called the
keeper, if using the same sounds they
employ toward each other can be so
termed. The keeper rose from his cage
and went to the bars. As he neared
them the hideous carnivore opened his
mouth, revealing the terrible wound.
Tho keeper, a rough and fearless man,
prof ured a pair of very strong forceps
and, calling his associates to stand around
tho cage in case he was attacked, opened
the door and sprang in. The hyena
turned without growling, wagged its
tail and again opened his mouth. The
keeper took hold of the splinter and with
a iowerful pull extracted it from the in
flamed and swollen flesli. Then with,
some lukewarm water he sponged out
tho interior of the mouth. The hyena
recovered entirely from the accident,
but ever after displayed a warm friend
chip for the valorous keeper.
Lluns end tigers are subject to two
troubles. One is the breaking of a small
piece oft from a tooth and the formation
of a sharp point or edge. Another,
which is far less frequent, is the abnor
mal growth of a tooth, especially a ca
nine one, from not having enough bones
to crunch and gnaw upon. The treat
ment in both cases is the same. The
great cat is "thrown down" and bound
so that it can neither move nor inflict
injury upon the attendants. The mouth
is forced open and kept so by wooden
wedges. The broken or overgrown tooth
is then filed down, the former until it in
round and smooth and the latter until it
is normal size. Philadlphia Times.
Ijomloii' Dliutbled Harm.
Mr. V. IL Ross, secretary to Harrison
& Barber, horso rfaughterers, told to a
Pall Mall Gazette reporter tho other day
that they liave seven slaughter bouses in
tho metropolitan area, tho largest being
that in tho York road, Camden town.
They slaughtered 25.000 horses a year.
When a horso broke a limb or sustained
other irremediable injury on the street
tho iolice at once communicated with
their nearest depot. Tho company had
frequently been charged with cruelty in
allowing maimed horses to lie about for
hours before sending men to end their
Bufferings. The truth was they were
very particular in this respect, and if
6uch delays occurred it was through no
fault of theirs. Was horseflesh much
used for food? Yes, to a considerable
extent, he should say.
Their charter did not allow of their
selling horseflesh for food purposes, but
there were such establishments in the
city. He had himself eaten horseraeat
in France, and at the company's annual
dinner it was served to the guests, some
of whom declared they would not have
known it from beef, had they not been
told. Fine fat horses were slaughtered
every week, horses that were perfectly
sound, except for 6ome accidental injury,
and ho 6avv no reason why this flesh
should not be eaten. He had often seen
street gamins buy a 6lice of dried horse
flesh, place it between two bits of bread,
and eat it as a sandwichl Of course,
most of the prepared horseflesh passed
under the name of catsmeat, but it
seemed incredible that the cats could
consume it all.
Every part of tho horse was put to
some use flesh, hide, hair, hoofs and
bones. Now that (and Mr. Ross held up
a small vial of beautifully transparent
oil) was horse oil. One would scarcely
think such oil as that could be got from
the horse. Those other bottles contain
oils of inferior quality. They were used
for lubricating purposes and for soap
making. Most soaps nowadays contained
Armed with a cigar and an order from
the secretary of the company, our re
porter made his way to the premises in
York road. Tho obliging manager said
they had had only four horses in today.
But alxut 7,800 were slaughtered here
annually. Most of the animals were
cab, 'bus or tram horses. The establish
ment turned out about twenty tons of
horseflesh every week. They had forty
six dead and twenty-one live horses in
now. They contracted with the various
cab, 'bus and tram companies f p? injured
horses at 80 shillings each, alive or dead.
Most of the live horses they got in were
injured internally by overwork or fall
ing. A few were gone with congestion
of tho lungs. The work of slaughtering
went on day and night, there being two
gangs of men for that purpose, Hocsc-o
were killed at night by three "knack
ers." Fifteen horses were considered a
good night's work. The sufferings of
tho poor brutes were soon at an end. as
they were rendered insensible by ' blow
from a heavy ax. Pall Mall Gazette.
A Prophetic Dream.
Some days before the late disaster at
Samoa the wife of an officer at Mare
Island awoke from her first sleep,
trembling and in tears, and related to
her husband a fearful dream experience.
Sho thought she had been in her divam
transported to the island of Samoa,
from tho shores of the harbor of Apia
looked upon the American pnd German
fleets.' Suddenly a stoim 'arose, and the
harbor was swept by a fierce tornado.
Ship after phip went ashore, ant the
spectators united in offering up prayers
for tho preservation of the remaining
vessels. Lastly the Vandalia and Tren
ton dragged their anchors, and, as the
former vessel was dashed upon the reef
and almost immediately sank, Mrs.
witnessed ' the death of Capt. Schoon-
maker, Lieut. Sutton and Paymaster
Amies, the three officers who were the
victims of the actual disaster of March 10.
The picture was so vivid and real that
Mrs. for days was nervous and agi
tated, thinking only of her dream, and
relating it to others, always insisting
that the vessels and friends so recently
gone from Mare Island must certainly be
exposed to some fearful peril, and when
tho fictitious story of the sinking of tht
Nipsic reached us she concluded this to
bo the interpretation of her dream. The
falsity of this fctory being proved, Mrs.
was, of course, disposed to make
bglit of her vision; but now comes a tale
of disaster infinitely more sad than tho
fiction which agitated our country for so
many days an event corf esponding most
closely with this apparently prophetic
' In this Btory capable of perfect au

A Ship in a Cyclone.
What a Samoan hurricane is like and
what chance a ship has whila at its
mercy, may be imagined efter reading
Abercromby's "Seas and Skies Jn Many
Latitudes." He says:
"Much has been written about han
dling ships in hurricanes and elaborate
maneuvers have been described which
they are to perform near the center of
typhoon. Many a ship has been saved
by skillful sailing on the outskirts of a
cyclone, and even after the characteris
tic 6qualls and driving rain have begun.
But when near the center sho gets in the
kernel, as it were, of the hurricane, and
the wind comes in great gusts which no
canvas can withstand, when the roaring
of the wind is so tremendous that no
voice can be beard, when the sky and
cloud and spindrift are mixed up in
dislinguishably from one another in a
general darkness, then it is as impossible
to give an order as to obey it, and the
sailor can only hope that her timbers
may not open so as to spring a leak, and
that her steering gear may hold sothafc
sho may not broach to and be over
whelmed by the waves." New York

the great poet, is a musical enthusiast
