"I remember reading somo tlmo ngo of a Ger
man princess whoso Ioto of neatness and horror
of overythlug untidy and unclean developed Into
an acute mania," said a woll-known dentist tho
other day In conversation with n Heuald re
porter. "Tho poor princess had actually to bo
put in a retreat of somo kind. I believe. I don't
remember what name the doctors give this sort
of mania, but tho point I want to mako Is this,
that it would bo a good thing if all dentists wcro
ailllcted with it, at least in a mild form. A den
tist can never be too neat about his dress and
his person, nor too scrupulously careful about
his Instruments. Ho owes this to his patrons,
not only so as to avoid oflcndine their sight and
smell while operating on them, but for much
"If nervous people knew of tho danecrs that
may lurk in a careless dentist's chair tho jump
ing toothacho would often bo endured rather
than employ a dentist who was not immacu
lately clean porsonully. I would much rather
cat off tho samo plate with my dog than bo
operated upon In somo ofilces I know of. It Is
not only men who run tho risk of being Inocu
lated with moro than ono poison, but women
"Only last year," resumed tho dentist after a
pause, "a lady camo to me to havo a tooth ex
tracted. On cxamiulng her mouth I discovered
an ulcerous sore on her cum. Knowing her
long and Intimately, I ventured to ask her how
lone it had been there, and if sho know its ma
" 'I havo had a soro there over since having a
tooth extracted about ten mouths ago,' said
she, mentioning a well-known dentist as the
"'Did you over go back to him about it?' I
" l0h, yes, and he assured mo it was only an
ulcer resulting from acidity of tho stomach.'
"I explained to her tho serious naturo of this
ulcer, and further that it was my belief that she
got it in tho dentist's chair through careless
handling of his instruments.
"It is not only patients who are in danger, but
we aro bIeo, having to operato on all sorts and
conditions of men. There is no safety except
in absolute cleanliness. Tho operator should
make it a religious duty to bo personally as neat
and clean as a Quaker maiden, and his hands
and cuffs should be immaculate, while his breath
should neither bo made offensivo to the most re
fined woman or delicate child by the fumes of
liquor or tobacco. Ills instruments should bo
cleansed immediately after using by a bath of
strong disinfectant fluid, either carbolic acid, or
Dicmonuo ot mercury. Jiy tms means no wouiu
do away with all danger. If only dentists who
aro models of neatness were employed tho world
would havo fewer cases of 'canker' to record.
Canker is like 'malaria' it covers a multitude of
nameless sins. Whenever a disease is obscure
or persistent or indescribable (in its true colors)
it is labeled canker, and that is enough. Half

of the true inwardness of the diseaso thataflllcts

AMONG OUR ARTISTS.
Mr. 8. Jerome Uhl has taken a studio In tho
finest new art building of New York, the Sher
wood, corner of Fifty-seventh street and Sixth
avenue. He proposes, however, only to divide
his timo between this city and New York and
will therefore continue to occupy his studio in
Vernon Row. Mr. Uhl already has several re
munerative commissions for portraits in his
New York studio. His spleudld coloring and
artistic setting of a picture give him an envia
Max Weyl has sold two of his choicest Adi
rondacks pictures, his summer's work, to
SeHor Mendouga, tho Brazilian Minister. That
gentleman takes ono of these choice works with
him to Brazil as a present to his brother and
the other to place in tho Academy of Fine Arts
in his native country. A connoisseur of varied
experience says of ono of these pictures that he
regards It as qulto equal to any of the best
types of tho modern French school. It con
tains all of "Woyl's most subtlo touches and
most pleasing effects of color, with raro at
mosphere and reach of perspective. Its tono
also appeals to tho imagination oven where it
is most realistic in a poetical way that Is charm
ing. We may as well wake up to tho fact that
we have several gentlemen in our midst just
now who possess the artistic sense In a hieh de
gree, and Max Weyl is not ono of the least, but
rather ouo of tho greatest of these. Some day

citizen, Mr. Thomas Waggaman, at 8300 O
street, West End, or (old-stylo) Georgetown.
His gallery has choice specimens of tho modern
French masters on Its walls, besides somo rare
canvases furnished by our homo talent. R. N.
Brooke Is represented by a characteristic
study of a "Quiet Corner," where a young
"culled pusson" scrapes out tho cako pan with
evident satisfaction. It is a good companion
piece of tho "Pastoral Call" in tho Corcoran
Gallery by tho samo pencil, while Max Woyl's
"Twilight" is ono of hisbcstspeclmensof work.
Another homo artist, butseldom If ever excelled

half dozen family portraits on tho walls painted
by Brooke,each ono of which is not only a repre
sentation of an individual, but an expression of
ideal aitlstlcwork as well. In ceramics tho
gallery is unusually rich. "Wlion public as
well as private art gallorles In this city, with
