Interesting Object Lesson In' Crude Banking Methods. ConvALLia, Oct. 22. W. T. Branch, tbe expert appointed to examine the books and accounts of tbe bankiug Ann of Hamilton, Job fc Co., for seven years post, bas presented bis- report. Tbe books of tile firm were found to have been very carelessly kept. No trlul balance of tbe general ledger had been made ut any time, and any eflort to balance accounts was made dally by computing the amounts received add the amounts disbursed, and any discrep ancies were charged to tbe "long and short" account, which account, at the close of business June 9, showed a debit of $2,038.32. The capital sjock of the hou60 wasOjOOOjlSOO of which wns to tbe credit of. ZepBln -Job antdj$21.GO0 to the credlt.of B. R. Job. The former, however, in indebted to the bank-in the sum of $17,454, and the latter $7002 19. The- expense In the conduct of tbe busi ness from January 1, 1887, to January 9, 1893, and chargeable to tbe expense account, is $28,925 44, and losses on long and short account are $2038 32. The revenues derived from tbe business were: From the interest fund, $29, 105.10; from the discount fund, $955.67. This amount (38,062 73) shows tbe net profit of the house for 0J years to have been $7098.96. All accounta or notes of tbe bank, whether good or bad, have been treated as good. There was invested in real estate $20,240.13, In which Is included $4,970.88 for which the books do not give auy information. Tbe Niagara Mill company owes tbe bank a balance of $43,034.84. The Messrs. Job were the largest holders of stock in tne mill and advanced money freely. The mill property will most likely realize very much less than it cost. Tbe bills receivable account calls for notes to tbe amount of$102,709.77. An Inventory of the notes found in tbe bank amounts to only $78,384.34, a shortage of $24,315.43. No records were kept of tbeso notes, so It Is impossible to tell what notes are missing. It is believed, however, that two uotes, amounting to $13,500, given by Jacob & Neugass, were used to purchase half of tbe lot aud building adjoining tbe bank build ing. Tbe property was bought for $17, 000 and these notes used in payment, but no record was made of tbe transac tion. The same may be said of tbe purchase of the Cauthom warehouse a.id the property mortgaged by T. J. Blair to secure certain notes, and which was sold under execution to Messrs. Job. No entries were ever made of these matters. These notes, together with a few hundred dollars of outlawed notes, will practically make up the de ficiency. The expert Is satisfied that no funds were diyei ted from the proper care of tho bank by either of the Messrs. Job, except in the purchase of tbe mill pro perty and Its subsequent account, aud the purchase of the real estate men tioned. The valuation set upon tbe as-i setB of tho firm by the assignee is upon the supposed depreciation always oc casioned by the closlugofany business, and shows a large deficit, Tho ultl- mato result as to tbe amount of the div idend, Bays tho report, will depend large ly upon tho careful administration of its affairs. Not a Miracle, Now. Until recently consumption was con sidered incurable, but now people are beginning to reullzo that the disease is not incurable. The cure of consump tion Is not a miracle, now. Dr. Pierce's Goldou Medical Discovery will cure It. if taken in time aud given a fair trial. This world renowned remedy will not make now lunge, but it will restore dis eased ones to a healthy state when other means huve failed. Thousauds gratefully testify to this.

Whiskers was the chief subject of dis cussion at a rather informal meeting of the Ministers' alliance yesterday morn ing. When Dr. Armstrong appeared with a freshly shaven upper lip and a face as devoid of hirsute adornment as a new born babe's, the subject was found, and he was promptly called upon to ad-' dress the alliance upon the "Rise and Fall of tho Mustache." Dr. Armstrong told how he had cnt oil his mustache and nearly scared bis little ones to death. Upon being questioned he admitted that the operation was performed late Sun day night, bnt said that it was done for the good of his congregation and for the Improvement of his voice. Ho wanted the word of God to proceed from the month clear and plain and distinct, un hindered by any obstruction. He closed his remarks by saying that he had sac rificed his beauty for tho benefit of his congregation, and that he was aware that the moro his face was covered the better looking ho was. Dr. Tigert responded with a fervent "That's so," and Dr. Armstrong came back at him by saying ho had already been mistaken for Dr. Tigert. Dr, Haley said he thought all ministers should either ba smooth shaven or wear a full beard. The doctor himself sup ports a very luxuriant beard, slightly tinged with gray, and it was thought that his opinion might therefore be biased. He urged all young ministers to shun the alluring mustache unless backed up with a crop of chin whiskers. A mus tacho, ho said, looked unclorical.

The Second Class Tourist Parties That Now Go Quickly, Cheaply and Merrily. It is now possible to cross the conti nent to San Francisco and make friends in tho way and have as jolly a time as when you cross tho Atlantic on a fast liner in tho same number of days. That nsed not to bo so. The old way was to tako a .numbered seat in a sleeping car and go through with the chance that no ono but the conductor and the train newsboy would over speak to you. Tho new way is by means of what aro called tourists' excursions. They are run at second class rates, but on the fastest time and with special cars. Tho conductors will tako a first class passen ger if Buch a one should offer himself. There aro at least two of these compa nies running personally conducted excur sions over opposition lines, and both ad vertise, very low rates and quick time. The cars are plenty good, enough for anybody, but are not as ornate as tho regular palace cars. In them the peoplo start at New York or Boston and go through without change, eating their meals in dining cars out as far as Coun cil Bluffs, if they want to, and stopping at dining stations along the rest of each route. A great many, who push to tho farthest extreme that economy which is tho distinctive characteristic of such carloads, carry their own fare with them in baskets and either buy nothing but tea and coffee or even make that for themselves on tho road. The passengers in tho first class coaches on the same trains are quickly made aware of tho fact that their trains carry these tourist parties, for they hear the laughter and singing and romping of tho tourists, who by the end of the second day out are all acquainted with one another and bent on having a jolly and fraternal time. They share their deli cacies, their paper covered novels and their hopes and fears with ono another, stream out of the cars in great parties when there is a long stop to gather flow ers or to "take in a new town," and in all ways fraternize as though they had all known each other for years. The circular of one of these excursion companies announces that it "guards its patrons against the presence of the im migrant and the untidy" and against the intrusion of tho way passengerT Everything that will contribute to tho general pleasure is welcomed, but noth ing offensive is tolerated. Some of tho cars have smoking rooms, but if there is one without it the men must go forward to the regular train smoker to enjoy their pipes and cigars. A special con ductor goes with each party and saves the tourists the annoyance of being awakened to show then: tickets during each night. Tho tourist cars look like regular sleepers in tho raw, being built on tho same plan, but not finished with the same elegance. Unlike the immigrant sleepers, they are equipped with car pets, curtains, mattresses, blankets, sheets, pillows, pillowcases, towels, combs, brushes, etc., requiring nothing of the kind to be furnished by the pas senger. Each car has a stove for the making of tea and coffee, and each sec tion can be fitted with an adjustable table. A uniformed colored porter ac companies each car to make up berths, keep the car clean and to make himself useful. New York Sun. Anointed the Bridegroom. There is a row in tho firo department. It grew out of a joke played upon ono of the paid men attached to Hose 17, who was to be married last night. Before dressing for the ceremony he went to the bathroom to have a bath. The boys had previously removed the lock from the door, and when he got in to the tank they made their appearance and gave him a liberal painting with ointment used on horses' hoofs. His body was smeared with the Bticky stuff, and then ho was scrubbed down with brushes and water. A neighboring druggist was applied to, who recommended oil to remove the stuff. This only set the ointment all the harder, aud the victim bad to don his clothes and go to his wedding with his uniquo adornment. No formal complaint has yet been lodged at headquarters, but ono will be whon tho honoymoon is terminated. Providence Journal. The Iloyal Oak. The Royal Oak, first class British bat tle ship, which was launched iu 1693, will, it is expected, be ready to be handed ovor to the naval authorities by the end of October. Her length is 880 feet; beam, 75 feet; draft, 27 feet 0 inches, giving a displacement of 14,150 tons; her engines will give 18,000 horse power, which is calculated to give her a speed of 17J knots. She will be pro tected by armor 18 inches thick along the water lina aud 4 inches thick above, the armored bulkheads to bo 10 inches thick, and the barbettes will be plated to a thickness of 17 inches. Her heaviest guns will be four 07 ton guns, bat she will carry in addition a powerful arma ment of quick firincr and machine guns and torpedo fittings. The Resolution and Revenge, of tho Baino size and power, are also in process of completion at Barrow, and will probably be taken over from the builder before the end of the year. London Times. llarou Frlck Turns Showman. Baron Pricks, a Russian nobleman, living in Copeuhagefi, has just turned showman. Ho is enormously rich, but his eccentricities had put him indisgrrce with his family. He doesn't care a fig, and, happy as a tramp, he is traveling now with one colored man. two mon keys, three bears, oua lion, four pigs, 40 ( parrots, innumerable cocks and hens and a brand new Hungarian wife of ex- i traordmary beauty. ' Tho DlnckUst of Paris Tailors. In Paris tho Tailors' syndicate is pro' paring a new edition of their blackbcok, which was originally published 17 years ago. The blackbook contains the names and descriptions of those persons who do not pay for their clothing. Onco a man is inscribed iu it he is unablo to obtain clothing at any establishment unless he is prepared to pay cash before delivery. The work in question contains a num ber of curious details with regard to the delinquents abhorred of tailordom. Among them aro 254 tradesmen and only 1 concierge; 185 commercial travelers to 2 priests and 2 antiquaries; 94 students to 8 translators, 8 hairdressers,- 8 waiters and 8 house painters; 81 publicans, and, curiously enough, precisely the same number of journalists and men of letters; 72 professors, CO engineers,- 40 artists, 40 actors, 40 servants or waiters, 37 drug gists, 80 financiers, So" architects, 27 doc tors, 27 jowelers, 24 workinginen, 10 musicians, 14 persons of independent means, 12 bookmakers, 7 sculptors, 1 Egyptologist, 1 ex-mayor and 1 "negro." Even as it is, with the aid of the infor mation given in this book, it is said that the Parisian tailors aro cheated out of from 2 to 5 per cent, of the monoy duo to them. Paris Letter.
