Denver, Col., Aug. 19. -The Gumry
hotel, 1725 to 1733 Lawrence street, was
wrecked by a terrific explosion at 12:10
this morning, the rear half of the
building, a five-story brick nnd stone
structure, going down with a crash.
Tho hotel was Crowded with guests
and many of them must have been
killed, as well as tho entire force of
hotel employes, who were Bleeping in

Larimer, directly back of the Gumry,

in the vicinity were badly wrecked.
At 12:35 o'clock five injured persons
had been taken out They were all
inmates of the upper story and san1
down with the floors, escaping more
fortunately than thoso below, who are
still buried in the ruins. By some esti
mates forty people were in the portion
of tho hotel destroyed, nearly all of
whom must be dead. The cause of the
explosion is uncertain, but it is sup
posed that tho battery of boilers in
the hotel basement must have ex
ploded. Two injured women had been almost
extracted from the ruins when the
flames approached so closo that the
rescuers had to abandon them for their
own safety. Both voices have now
been silenced, fire completing the work
commenced by the explosion. The
bodles'of three women are to be seen
in tne back part of the building, but
cannot be reached.

keeping tho firemen back from the
work of rescue, except just at the line
of the alley wall. Thus far six persons
have been taken from the ruins, all
badly injured. In addition four were

Interesting Statistics from the Last Keport
of the Currency Comptroller.
Washington, Aug. 19. The comp
troller of the currency has compiled
an aggregate statement of tho condi
tion of the 3,715 national banks in the
United States as a result of replies
made to his call for a statement of con
ditions of the banks on the 11th day
of July last The statement issued
shows more than anything else mid
summer inactivity. There is less
monev out of the banks and more
money lying idle in their coffers.
The individual deposits on hand
amount to S100,000,000 more than was
shown by the statement of May 7. It
Is interesting to note also that the gold
coin on hand in July was only S117,
DOO.OOO, as against 5123,000.000 in May.
This shows that some of the national
bank gold has gone abroad and some
has probably gone to the bond syndi
cate to replenish the treasury gold re
serve. As many of the leadiug national
banks throughout the country are
members of the bond syndicate the
fact that these banks still have SU7,
000,000 gold on hand is in a small way
indicative of the ability of the syndi
cate to obtain gold. As is usually the
ease the silver stock on hand is abso
lutely immovable. Nobody wants it,
nobody will take it and banks keep it
stored away. In May the amount of
silver in the banks was 812,000,000, and
it was still 512,000,000 in July.

taken to jail, where they will bo held

Imparting Knowleden.
It is hard to tell just how much
knowledge remains in a child's mind
since sometimes, after the most'eare'
ful instruction, they do not seem to
havo any clearer idea of a matter than
they might have managed to obtain
themselves without any teaching at
all. A teacher in one of the public
schools was giving her pupils a lecture
concerning the various kinds of spices
imported from foreign countries, fehe
gave careful descriptions of the plants.
from which each species was obtained
and exact explanations of the manner
of preparing mace, nutmegs, cloves

at tho interested looks of her scholars
and rather pluming herself upon her
little lecture, she ended by asking:
"Now, can any of you children tell me
what makes the difference between
black and white pepper?" One little
