It Is curious to what an extent the mutilation of teeth goes on among savage nations, and even among certain civilized people, such as the Japanese With them a girl is never mart-let without first staining her teeth blacli with a repulsive kind of varnish, anc the custom is especially adhered tc among the richer classes. On the west coast of Africa a larg« portion of the teeth are deliberate^ broken when children reach a certain age. Both in the new world and In the old the custom exists of extract- r ing tlie two front teeth of domestic 'servants. In Peru the custom has ex• isted from time immemorial, and use<] .to be a sign of slavery in the days ol the Incas. This is also the custom on the Kongo, and among the Hottentots Teeth are stained in various colors among the Malays. A bright red and a bright -blue are not uncommon, and a bright green ia produced with the aid of arsenic anc lemon juice. Livingstone related that among the Kaffirs a child with a prom iuent upper Jaw was looked upon as a monster and immediately killed. On the Upper Nile the negroes have al their best teeth extracted in order to destroy their value in the slave market, and to make it net worth while for the slave traders to carry them off, —Tld-Bits. The train was crowded and the usual signs which decorate southern railway carriages and separate thu black passengers from the white had been discarded. Col. John .Jacob Astor and another officer had beguiled the time pleasantly enough, but as they neared Chattanooga the multi-millionaire soldier was left alone. The day was warm, and he nodded a little, but he straightened quickly at a feminine voice saying quite close to his ear: The deepest lake in the world is Lake Baikal, in Siberia. In some parts it is 5,261 feet deep; its length is 397 miles, with an area of 15,000 square miles. It is the largest lake in Asia, and the sixth largest in the world. The Queen of Italy's extravagance in dress is the one grievance of her loya! subjects.

A MAIL CARRIER ON THE ROAD FROM PONCE TO SAN JUAN General Expansion of Trade Is Noticed, rURTHER GAINS EXPECTED, Ordeti and Fnrchaiei Show an Increase In Neatly All Branches—Farmers Hold* j Their Wheat—Failures During the Week. New York, Aug. 22.—R. G. Dun & Co., In their weekly Review of Trade, say: "A war which brought no shrinkage of business while it lasted has brought with Is ending quite a remarkable expansion. Orders and purchases have increased in nearly all branches, few as yet being of such nature that they can be attributed to the material enlargement of trade with the lately Spanish islands, which must come a, little later. "It Is odd that the iron Industry, while reporting decline in products, shows more surprising business than any other. "Wheat has further declined 2 cents in spite of general holding of better grades by farmers, which renders re- recipts low and visible supply small beyond precedent. At 76 cents now, Atlantic exports for the week have been 3,059,380 bushels, flour included, against 3,705,287 last year, and Pacific exports 175,400, against 384,846 last year, making for three weeks 10,115,246 bushels, against 10,453,832 last year. Corn exports are gradually declining and prices are 2 cents lower, rather larger estimates of yield being now credited. "Failures for the week have been 154 In the United States, against 223 last year, and 17 in Canada, against 30 last year."

Indianapolis, Tnd., Aug. 22.-^Tbe following appeal was Issued today by authority of the executive board of the United Mine Workers of America: "Being convinced It Is your earnest desire to maintain the prices and conditions of our annual interstate agreement of January last in all of the fields to which it applies, and that it is our duty to briefly point out the great danger with which we are threatened, and which will inevitably result from any failure on your part to sustain such agreement, we draw your notice to the following quotations from the Chicago agreement, clause No. 8: " 'That the United Mine Workers' organization, a party to the contract, does hereby further agree to afford all possible protection to the trade and to other parties hereto against any unfair competition resulting from a failure to maintain scale rates.' "From this you will see the obligations under which we are placed, and when you learn that three thousand (3,000) miners or more In the Pittsburg district are unable to maintain the scale, and have now determined to strike for its enforcement, you can then realize the necessity of this action and the importance of a general and hearty response. At a convention of Pittsburg d-lstrict miners held Aug. 1 and 2 last, the following resolutions were adopted: " 'That a levy of 5 cents on the dollar be assessed on every member In the Pittsburg district, and that we appeal to the miners of the competitive field to assist us in enforcing the Chicago agreement. " 'That we request the national executive board to make an appeal to all miners throughout the competitive field to help us maintain the' Chicago agreement in the Pittsburg district." "Fully approving this action, as we believe it is the only course open to us under present conditions, and assuring you that If you but do your share our interstate agreement will be enforced and your rights respected, we therefore appeal to our members everywhere to contribute 5 per cent of their earnings to the support o£ the striking miners and their families, who are as surely fighting your battle as their own, and whose success or failure will be shared by all alike.
