ever. He realizes that death is near at
hand, and at the same time has no fear
whatever of its coming. It was only the
other day that he was able to write to
one of his sons something like this: "I am
engaged at the present time in the occu

naid. tin re is 0:10 matter of satisfaction

their punishment mitigated, and last and
most dangerous is the man who really
has a "pull." who can secure the suspen

P. J. Dun & ("o.'s Weekly Review of
Trade says:
Failures for S'M are fully reported, be
ing lo.SNÖ in the United States and 1,850
iii the Dominion of Canada. Liabilities
in the United Stab s were SITü.WJ.söi;.
and in Canada $17,016,215. Neither the
decrease of over half in this country, nor
the increase of over JJ per cent, in Can
ada is surprising, but the statement shows
that most of the decrease in the United
States is in manufacturing liabilities,
while the entire increase in Canada is in
liabilities of trading concerns. A few
States, including New York and Pennsyl
vania, show more failures than in 1883,
and in a few Southern States the amount
of liabilities is larger, but in central and
WCStl rn States, very much smaller. The
fsilures have been 12.5 in every thousand
firms doing business; the liabilities have
averaged SI.'IL'.TT to each firm in trade,
and in proportion to the volume of solvent
business represented by all clearing house
exchanges, $7.k? for every $1,000. Tin
review places in a clear light the fact that
prices of commodities are at the lowest
