It Has Made Very Ramarkable Progress In Recent Tears. "The progress in the art of dentistry has been greater than is generally known," said J. E. Lamb, of Boston, at the Lindell. "You can see by the swollen condition of my right jaw that I am suffering the torments of a throbbing, thumping toothache, and, though I was advised by toy dentist at Boston not to have my tooth pulled, I got up this morning irorn 'a sleepless night, thoroughly desperate and determined to have the unruly member plucked out. But when I applied to one of the most eminent students of St. Lonis to perform the operation, he, too, after examination, advised me not to have it taken out. When he learned that I was nearly fifty years old he told me that I would have to suffer only two or three days more and the neive would die of its suffering, my paiu would entirely cease and I would have my tooth preserved intact. The discovery of the death of tooth- nerves with advancing age is only two or three years old, but in that time millions of teeth have been saved, Formally, when a man with a toothache went to the dentist's office, it meant that the tooth was unceremoniously jerked out, root and branch. or the sufferer was subjected to a long and painful operation of plugging. The better class of dentists have censed nearly entirely to pull the treth of men arid women Hearing their climacteric, as they know that the aches are but the last expiring ef- the precious metals and the precious stones. In no age of barbarism or of puritanical simplicity has the jewel been entirely discarded. The ages of barbarism were those of. Unexampled splendor and decorations. Conquering hosts rifled the treasure chests of their victims and car ried home in triumph their jewels and jewelry. The ancient Greeks, Persians, Egyptians and Romans were adepts in decorating their • persons, and their men were ho less demonstrative than their women. Maeses,of gold chains sparkling with jewels, earrings "and finger-ri^gs adorned the person of the Roman dandy, while the warrior studded hie breast plate, helmet, sword,' and shield with emeralds rubies, sapphires, pearls and diamonds. The jewels of the crown are great show pieces in every kingdom in the world, wfiile familv diamonds or pearls, as the case may be, are just as jealously guarded and_handed down from generation to generation, priceless heirlooms, souvenirs of the past. In the Jeweler's art of to-day two widely different nations probably excel air others in the originality of their designs—France and Rusaia. The former not only originates designs of her own, but calls upon her varied art imagination to adapt all the fancies and crudities of the ancients,- until her jewelry sets the patterns from which all others save Russia copy. The kingdom which Peter founded presents greater contrasts of _ art culture and barbarism than any nation within the pale of civilization. While the world .rings with the heart rendiner cries of a people prosecuted for the love of their God,', and millions of Russia's peasantry cry aloud for bread and rot by the wayside, her musicians, poets, authors and painters invade the wonderland of culture, carrying all before them. Quite recently the safe and dis posal.of the Verestchaginjcollection pointed clearly to_the estimation and value of a great mind; last year Tschaikowsky revealed to us' how. rich, in melody' Russia's folk music is; and yec another— Russian only, it is true, by domination— Paderewaki, is now delighting the public by the fire and depth of his musical art. The centennial exhibition made the American people first aware of the value of Russian 'art in th0 treatment of thi precious metals. , It' savors almost en tirely of the Byzantine period of the ar world; its _ workmanship is excess! veli fine and florid, delighting in over-elabora' tion and detail; especially strong, too, in the decoration of church vestments missals, and regalia, which, as the'Greel church is so closely allied to the Catholic in the elaborateness of its pomps' ant ceremonies, provide the jeweler with many opportunities for the display of his art- workings. For the ornamentation of the person the Russian does not, except arnom; the peasant class, follow his native style *in hL jewelry, but rather affecta the Persian elegance. In Italy they are celebrated for 6f directing the people's : attention to the Jews, who, th*y said, .had stored victuals. The excited .icrowd turned back from the station, went to the market place, and began to rob Ihe Jews. A fur store was emptied in five minutes, and before half an nour was over all.the shops in the market place had been robbed of everything in them. Then the mob burst into the Jews' lodging?, where, however, they did not find the stores they expected. The Jews had. to pay for the disappointment, and women, old men and children were cruelly ill-treated. The police did not appear, 'In the meantime the mob hud robbed some spirit shops, and many had become totally drunk and began to pull the Jews' houses to pieces, swearing they would nob leave a single one whole. In an hour and a half they demolished fifty-nine Jewish houses. • Later about one hundred brown loaves were heaped in the street tor distribution. Some hungry Jewish women and children began to eat from some of the loaves, and the mob, perceiving this, threw itself up- upon them ..nd all 1 but killed them. In Pensa very similar scenes happened. Here forty-four houses were demolished, and the attempt was made to blow up the Jewish meeting house with gunpowder, but only the tn,nt part of the building was damaged. THE LONDON POOB. The latest statistics tell us that out of London's four or five millions of people more than 300,000 earn le-s than 3 shillings a day per family. Between 40,000 children in the board schools alone go to school hungry every morning k and rarely know at any time what it is to have sufficient food, : They tell us also that one week's income of the owners of London's ground, the value .of which increases at the rate of over four millions auuunlly, would provide a dinner every ilay in the year for pach one of the forty thousand ill fed children, and that London's million poor could be'de- cently boused on the unearned increment of a year. Facts like the^e, pictures like this one before us, naturally inukn us question whether the time is not ripe for the favored and happy to stop and "consider" the problem of the poor. The same pitiless statistician, who goes on buildintf a pyramid of proof by piling convincing- fact on fact, states that London bas over thirty thousand people who have no home and no shelter but that afforded .by the four- penny Boss House and the casual w;ard. A TRIP ACROSS INDIA. In a book guide other horsemen who uia, desire to imitate htm,Lieu- tenant Varges of Ihe Austro-Hungarian army has made public the details of his recent trip across India. He rode 1,200 miles in ninety-four days, and crossed 124 rivers, only three of which were bridged His expenses were a little leas than $150 of which $45 was for food for himself, hi* servant and his horse. The total cost of his trip from "his home and back was 8750 The inexpensiveness of his trip, as well as the soundness of his health throughout it. Lieutenant Varges ciabit of eating only journey on horse-bacs. work, but in other Europe jewelry is /* O IL I _1 _ their delicate filigree parts of continental, _ tawdry and badly made. Switzerland" excels in watches. England is very strong in silver, jewelry, manufacturing some gold, principally chains, bracelets and brooches, all of which are heavy, clumsy, and not at all refined art. London is the headquarters of the trade, where the horrors of the "sweating system" among her wretched .jewelry workers were the subject of legislative inquirry. ' PROFESSIONAL HIJSBAND KILLERS. _From the time of the Empress Agrippina the world has progressed in many things says the London Graphic, but the art of husbandicide, in wnich the amiable spouse or Clrudius was already so proficient, has remained practically stationary. Whether this is to be accounted for by Agrippina having been very muuh' in advance of. her times or by the inexorable requirements of the laws of criminal statistics which Mr. Buckle has so elaborately expounded it in difficult to say Xn Hi no if. t no t> Viii o tin », /l i ^; ,1,. •_ t i , \" is what tb'e forts of the nerves to perform their tions. A curioua fact in connection func- with this kind of toothache is that cold water instead of intensifying the pain, as it usually does, actually soothes it." "Another important advance in dentistry in the method of completely sawing a tooth in two and joining the piecey /together with a small gold screw. When a decayed spect or streak makes its appearance in a molar now, the dentist who knows his business will neither pull the tooth and substitute for it one of his own make nor fill the hollow with gold to preserve it, Out he artfully saws the tooth off close to the gums, and, after thoroughly scraping and cleansing the decaying part, weld the two pieces together as firm as before the operation was done."— St Louis Globe Democrat. The new naval vessel which is to oe constructed this year, by our government, will be built on the hues of the armored cruiser New York.

The displacement of the New York is a little Suffice it that husbandicide scientists would call a "constant" phenomenon. Even its methods are unvarying.

SEL,T-COL,L,tCTJ£D BRIDES.

A shy, modest- looking little creature, robed in white, will stand perfectly erect, looking the minister culmly and squarely in the eye, without for an instant losing her self pose, while the big blunt, six-footer of a bridegroom;by her side is pile and nervous and trembling. •The bride very seldom makes, any mis- tab 1 , either at the ceremony or at the still more trying reception afterwards, while the man is almost always sure to put both feet in it and tnen fl mnder about in despair unt' I bis better half comes to his rescue and gives him the first chance to appreciate the advantages' of having some ono to take r-are of him.
