THE CONFECTIONERS' DISEASE.
A Company Organized to Supply Cold Air
SCIENTIFIC AKD INDUSTEIAL KOTES
rrnrpiKiD ron the DisrATcn.i
Headers of The Dispatch who desire
information on inbjecU relating to indus
trial development and progress in mechani
cal, civil and electrical engineering and the
sciences can have their queries answered
through this column.
It has been pointed oat that although ag
riculturists the world over hare excelled in
numbers and physical strength, they have
generally held a subordinate position, often
that of serfs and slaves. To this fact the
American farmer has hitherto been regarded
as an exception. This exception, however,
no longer exists. The farmer has not held
his place In the estimation of the commu
nity; his social, financial and political
power is gone, or materially lessened. His
children leave the homestead and crowd the
factory towns and cities. The farmer is
growing poorer. In 1860 the agriculturists
liadDue-half of the wealth of the country.
They constituted one-half of the population.
Between 1860 and 18S0, as the records show,
they added $4,122,58S,4S1 to their possessions.
But during the same period the other half
of the population added J23,3591791,831, or
five to one to theirs. Among the reasons
for this, given by an Eastern agricultural
authority, may be quoted the following:
"In the "first place, the farmer here cannot
compete with the farmer in the "West. There
is very little grain raised within our borders
now; potatoes don't bring any price; butter
is selling in the dairy districts for 14 cents a
pound, and other products are equally low.
A few years ago Western butter was not
wanted; to-day it has the cream of the trade
in New York City. In a few years you will
cee the present owners of farms in many in
stances tenants on them."
A disease peculiar to confectioners has
been recently observed in France. It oc
curs principally in persons engaged in the
manufacture of candied fruits and candied
chestnuts. The affection is restricted to the
nails of the hands, and usually first makes
its appearance at the sides of the nails, the
periungual portion becoming loosened and
raised up, the nail losing its polish and be
coming black. In more advanced cases an
inflamed swelling appears at the base of the
nail. The nail is rough, scaly, and in some
cases broken in several fragments, but is
never cast off in its entirety In the earlier
forms of the disease very little pain is ex
perienced, and the patient is able to go on
with his work. The disease disappears as
soon as the work is discontinued, although a
deformed nail and a flat or bent terminal
phalanx is apt to remain. In a large
number ot candy factories visited, not one
was found in which there were not from one
to three workmen suffering from the disease.
The affection is caused by handling and
working in the various substances employed
in the manufacture of candies, among which
are mallic, tartaric and citric acids. The
bands are alternately in hot and cold liquids,
nnd this is another fertile source of mischief.
It would be interesting to know whether this
disease exists in this country, where the
manufacture of candies is so extensive.
Supplying Co'd Air.
A company has just started in Xew York
City for supplying cold air to the butchers
of 'Washington market. The supply is
regulated by a cock. The air is cooled by
the ammonia system, and its temperature
enables the butchers to dispense with the
ice, into whici they formerly put their
meat. The innovation is an excellent one
on all accounts; it is more cleanly, more
convenient, and less injurious to the flavor
of the meat than ice. Probably, however,
its principal recommendation is that it will
not sow the seeds of decomposition and dis
ease, as ice does invariably, more or less.
.It is probable that restaurants and saloons,
and possibly summer resorts, in the city will
be supplied with the refrigerated air as soon
as the necessary pipes are laid.
Liberty Statue Ucjmtly Maligned.
At the recent congress of the American
Ornithologist's Union, Jonathan Dwight,
Jr., did a public service in reading a paper
on "Birds That Have Struck the3tatue of
Liberty, Bedloe's Island, New York Har
bor." Considerable'uneasiness has been felt
for some time on the subject of the sacrifice
of migratory birds to the luring brilliancy
of the Liberty and other lights, and many ex
aggerated statements have been made in the
papers. An alarm, however, is now dissi
pated by the fact, which Mr. Dwight places
on record, that the whole number of birds
killed this year at the Statue of Liberty is
690, which is considerably less than last
year. Of the dead birds "picked up this
year, 60 per cent belonged to one species, the
Portland Cement From Lime Kind.
Portland cement from lime mud, or the
lime waste of alkali works, is the object of
a newly started company in England. The
company owns special patents for the mak
ing of Portland cement from caustic-lime
mud, sugar-lime mud, etc The process in
volves the treatment of the mud in such a
manner as to extract the carbonate of lime,
and the nse of this product, instead of chalk,
to mix with clay in the manufacture of hy
draulic cement. According to tests made,
three parts of the lime-mud to one pari of
clay, by weight dry, makes an excellent
quality of Portland cement; after 28 days
test briquettes broke at 440 and 495 pounds
per square inch.
The Hearing of School Children.
The result of the examination of 9,000
school children in various cities of America
and Europe is that the average of pupils
who have defective hearing is 26 per cent.
There were twice as many with defective
hearing among backward children as among
forward children. Teachers are strongly
urged, to keep in mind the liability of exist
ing impairment of hearing in backward
children, and either give them nearer seats,
with their best ear toward th desk, or teach
them in separate classes. All boxing of the
ears of children shonld be stringently pro
hibited. The Freezing Process In Tunneling.
The freezing process is being effectively
used in the cutting of the t Clair tunnel,
under the Detroit river. 'Whenevervwater
is met with, the freezing mixture' is pro
jected by pipes, and the water end friable
debris become solidified and, the work'
can be proceeded with. The tunneling, is
progressing at the rate of seven feet per day
at each end. The shields are being used, in
the hard blue clay, by digging out the ten
ter with picks, then pushing them forward
18 inches at a time by hydraulic rams.
The value ot hand-grenades for the ex
tinction of incipient fires has been abun
dantly demonstrated, and they are to be
.found in earners and corridors of many pub
lic buildings and -private houses. There is,
however no necessity for paying fancy
prices for this useful and indispensable ar
ticle. A perfect substitute for it is to be
found in an ordinarv bottle, filled with the1
,V .solution.' The solution is composed of onell
pound of common salt, and one hairp6undN
of salammoniae, dissolved in about two
quarts ot water.
Electric Shot Hoist.
The electrical ammunition hoist of Lieu
tenant Piske, now In operation on board
the Atlanta, is giving great satisfaction.
The apparatus is called into play on all
general quarters calls, and hoists projec
tiles weighing 250 pounds from the bottom
of the hatch to the gun deck in ten seconds.
In no instance has the hoist .been taken
down or given the slightest trouble. The
introduction of the apparatus was strongjy
opposed by several naval officers, but its
'efficiency has now secured for it unqualified
commendation. The hoist is now used on
the Chicago, and is to be put on board all
the new ships.
The Buffalo In Australia.
4 After the lamentable experience of this
country, it is interesting to know that there
is a part of the world where the buffalo is
not only not dying out but increasing in
numbers. Vast herds ot these animals are
now running wild over certain districts of
Northern Australia. The animals are said
to be massive and well grown, with splendid
horns. The first buffaloes were landed at
Port Essington, Eorth Australia, about the
Sleel Superseding Wood.
In view of the wholesale deforesting of
many parts of the country, it is satisfactory
to know that steel'is superseding wood in
many industries. Of this one of the latest
illustrations is a steel wheel for a carriage,
and many of the leading carriige manu
facturers say that it is a matter of only a
Ehort time when wooden wheels will be a
curiosity, as good lumber for wheels is be
coming so scarce that its use will, per force,
The use of luminous paint is rapidly
growing in this country. England has
heretofore had the monopoly of a luminous
paint, which it has sold at 53 per pound. 1
utner countries, nowever, nave eniereu into
the competition, and Austria is now produc
ing a paint which is placed on the market at
50 cents per pound. It is said to be made
from roasted oyster shells and sulphur.
To Prevent Steam on Glass.
A fact which is well worth knowing, es
pecially In the winter, is that the formation
ot steam on glass is prevented by a thin coat
of glycerine on both sides of the glass. This
is very useful knowledge for sailors, and
also for surveyors who have to use their in
struments in loggy weather.
A mortar which, it is claimed, will stand
in all sorts of weather, is made of one bushel
of unslaked lime and three bushels of sharp
sand, to which is added one pound of alum
mixed with one pint of linseed Toil. The
alum will counteract the action of frost on

Concerning the Business Interests of
This HiTe of Industry.
THE MOTTO OP A SUCCESSFUL MAH.
A Prominent Lawyer Talks About the Pro
posed Elver Market House.
CODNTBY E0ADS A PDBLI0 DISGRACE
Contrary to the expectations of some
people, the bank failure has had ft beneficial
effect upon the real estate market. As con
fidence in other securities weakens, realty
rises in favor. Thus what is one man's meat
is another man's poison.
A prominent Pittsburg attorney, whose
office is in thoBakewell law building, and
who has traveled considerably in Europe, in
speaking yesterday of the project for build
ing a market house on the Allegheny river,
saidt "The idea is a good one, but X think
it can he improved. In place of a market
house I would cover both sides of the bridge
with stores, handsomely fitted up, with glass
fronts and every convenience for business.
I saw such a bridge over the river Tyne,
near Newcastle, England, and it struck me
at once that something of that kind would fill
a great-want at Pittsburg, where ground for
business purposes is scarce and dear.
"I have made a mental calculation of the
cot and the income from such a structure, and
am convinced that the rental from the stores
would be sufficient to pay all expenses in about
five years. The two cities would then have a
valuable property free of cost. But if the
cities shonld refuse to have an j thing to do with
it, the building could be put up by private en
terprise, no large amount of capital being re
quired, and I am confident it would be a good
investment. I think the matter la worth look
ing into further."
. Landlords should lose no more time in sign
ing the agreement to change moving day, if
they want ittogo into effect next spring. If they
hesitate much longer it will be taken as proof
that they do not favor the change. Bo they de
sire to assume that position"
That business generally possesses a substan
tial backbone was clearly demonstrated last
week, when it successfully withstood the as
saults of several conflagrations which wiped
ont millions of dollars' worth of property. Of
courso, these heavy losses bad a depressing
local effect, but their influence at large was
scarcely felt. The great industries of the
country are so well distributed that a disaster
to any of them in one place only stimulates
greater activity in another.
Locally, complications growing out of the at
tempts to get at the bottom of the Lawrence
Bank failure, afforded about the only diversion
from the usual run of events. Notwithstanding
the intervention of a holiday, ana the continu
ance of bad weather, all departments of regular
trade were in a flourishing condition, as
shown by the Clearing House reports. The bank
exchauges for the week were $1,053,625 16 larger
than for the corresponding time last year, and
for the month 29,628,635 64 larger. There was
great activity in real estate for the season and
many Important transactions were effected.
On the whole, the business of the week was
satisfactory and encouraging, showing that it
rests upon a solid foundation, backed up by a
good demand and abundant capital.
This week The Dispatch may be able to
throw some light on the real estate movements
on the Mononeahela river front, referred to
yesterday. In this connection it may be
stated, without a violation of confidence, that
one of the deals is about closed up.
The country roads are very little better than
clay pits. They are avoided whenever possible.
"Stuck in the mud," is, an expression heard as
often as any other In the rural districts. Four
horses hitched to an empty wagon is not an un
usual thing. City merchants have great diffi
culty in delivering goods to their country cus
tomers, and some of them have abandoned the
practice altogether. In many cases physicians
take "Walkers' Line" in visiting their patients
rather than run the risk of delay if they should
employ a carriage. Horses are suffering
greatly from sore feet and legs. Farmers are
unable to bnng their produce to market. This
adds to the cost of living In the city. Every in
terest is nnfavorably affected.
How long is this to lastT It was thought last
winter's experience would be sufficient to In
snare a remedy. But this hope proved delu
sive. The roads are in a worse condition than
ever before. This is a disgrace to the county.
and not very creditable to our country cousins,
who should see to it that the road laws are
strictly enforced. The additional taxes which
would flow into the county treasury from the
enhanced value ( of farm lands, which would
follow a general and thorough system of road
Improvement would more than defray the cost.
But regardless of cost, the roads should be Im
proved so as to keep up communication be
tween the city and the country.
The ileal Estate Record, conducted by
Brother Lowry, is conservative and hopeful, as
the following extract will show:
"The demand for residence property is brisk,
and there is no difficulty in disposing ot eligible
sites at market prices. We have beard of a
few cases where the owners have extravagant
notions of the value of property, but in these
cases purchasers are accommodated in other
localities. Take the market all through, resi
dence property is readily sold and at prices
indicating steady appreciation.
"The promised transportation facilities have
benefited holders wherever improvements are
projected. People who have never paid any
attention to acre property are 'dipping in,' sur
veyors' stakes have multiplied, and the market
has been and will continue to e good just so
long as the property changing hands is im
proved. The danger limit will not be reached
until the proportion of property bought and
held In expectation of appreciation by the
momentum of business and activity of the real
estate market is twice as great as It Is now.
"Tho chief features of the market are all en
conragine. In fact, the market was never so
promising as it is now. Neglected portions of
the city are investigated and their possibilities
recognized. The more they are investigated
the more genuine the Interest manifested."
A number of Pittsburg capitalists are per
fecting a project which may largely. Increase
the number of small houses in the city. One of
them was in Philadelphia recently taking notes,
and came home with his head f nil of new ideas.
If the scheme under consideration shall be
considered practicable, operations will begin
early next spring. The names of the gentle
men are withheld for the present, but they all
stand high in business circles, which is a guar
antee that whateverthey undertake in the way
of building will be carried out,
The following is displayed above the desk of
a prominent business man on Grant street:
"Grit, makes the most successful men.
The want of grit, the chump;
The men who win are those who can
Lay bold, hang on, and hump."
"Do you carry out this sentiment in your
business?" ho was asked.
"i. try to," was the reply. "1 think it is the
keynote to success. Energy rules the world.
It is indeedmore valuable than ability alone,
but when both are combined in the same per
son failure is impossible. Lazy men sometimes
succeed, but more by accident than anything
else. Young men in starting out are too much
disposed to trust to what they call luck. This
puts them in a false position and handicaps
them for life. They should remember that
there is no excellence without labor. He who
waits for fortune to come to him is almost cer
tain to die a poor man, and he ought to. The
greatest difficulties ultimately yield to perse
"The motto over my desk embodies a prin
clplewhlch should be deeply impressedupon the
mind of every young man at the outset of his
business career. It points out the only road to
The lateness of the season is beginning to af
fect building operations. Last week only S3 per

The cost or fMlmproveneeta' saowsapropor-
llonate decrease. On the whole, the year about
doling haj witnessed marvelous growth of the
city. More houses were erected than ever be
fore In the same length of time Nearly, if not
quite, 1000 structures, mosUy dwellings, have
been built since last spring at a cost that falls
little short of J5.000.000.
But great as this growth is. It will be sur
passed next year. Buildings will be put up In
blocks, instead of singly or by twos and threes.
The experiment of introducing and popular
izing flats will also be made. Men of energy
and canital are preparing to play a part In this
grand development, and they will push things.
Pittsburg is growing out of her old clothes.
Bhewill be entirely too big for them In a few
years. There will be houses for everybody.
This will invite population. Cities are born to
greatness as well as men. Pittsburg has "ways
been great, but she is destined to be still

Bears Is Clever, BecaHe the Oil Market
Tnrm Their Way.
Usually the end of the month brings about a
bnll movement In oil. bat veftertay was aa ex-
remained so all day, closing weak at next to
the lowest point. The opening was 10 high
est 105 lowest 10. closing 103H.
There were several causes tor this. The
break in stocks on the New York Exchange
was one of them. Another was tho Indisposi
tion of the traders to begin new deals at tne
end of the month, and with a holiday Just be
fore them. This left the market without sup
port. BU11 another cause was the scarcity of
money for speculation. Added to these de
pressing influences was the belief that the
Standard was behind the slump, and that It
would riot cease its manipulations until a still
lower level had been reached.
Considerable business was transacted during
the day, accomnanied by no small degree of
excitement, but" as it was mostly of the scalp
ing sort, tor which there was a good oppor
tunity, no large blocks changed hands, and the
aggregate of the sales waa smaller than on
several previous days of the week.
A good deal was done in cash and January
oil, the former at a fraction below and the
latter fromfi to 1 cent above tho regular op
tion. The inference between the highest price
on Monday and the lowest yesterday was suffi
cient to insure big profits on the bear side, and
In many cases they were realized. The bulls
are losing faith in statistics.

Heavy Liquidation Takes AH the Strength
Away From Railroad Shares The
Trusts Prominent la tho
New Yobk, November SO. The stock mar
ket to-day was active, feverish, irregular and
weak; and prices are materially lower all over
the list than last evening, notwithstanding the
favorable bank statement The bears were ex
tremely active and aggressive, and large
amounts of shorts were put out, but the
heaviest liquidation seen for a long time was
indulged in. and in a few stocks prices came
down with a rush. The Trusts were again
prominent In the downward movement, and
while Chicago Gas was forced off still further it
became comparatively firm in the last hour,
and was supponed at from 1 to 2 per cent above
the lowest figure. Sugar took its place, how
ever, and long stocks came out liberally, and
before the close of the session 69 was reached,
against 60 last evening.
The most Important movement In tho rail
road list, however, was in Cleveland, Columbus,
Cincinnati and St. Louis, and from dullness it
sprang into activity, while itsiHce declined as
rapidly as tfcat of Sugar, and It reached 66
before the downward movement was checked,
though a partial recovery took place in tho last
few minutes. The drop was occasioned by the
throwing over of a block of stock held hi a
broker's office for the account ot an operator
who Is in financial difficulties. Among the
other stocks ot the regular list the declines
from the best prices generally1 ranged up to 2
per cent, the most conspicuous being the Ches
apeake and Ohio and San Francisco, the first
preferred of the latter selling at 93 against 108
two days ago.
The railroad list was quite strong for the first
hour, but many operators failed to respond
to calls for more margin, which precipitated

Some Well Digested "Pointers for the Bene
fit of Local Investors.
By John U. Oatley ft Co.'s Private Wire.
New Yobx, November 30. The bears are in
control. They have made the money this" fall,
and are pressing their advantage. Naturally
they are in the minority, but they are aggres
sive, and their purses are fall of spoils. They
have confidence now in their own judgment,
while the bulls are dismayed at the heavy
losses and unexpected series of market catas
trophes. Sugar got a severe break to-day of 7
points, from top to bottom. Cleveland, Colum
bus, Cincinnati and St. Losl broke 4 points,
and Chicago Gas 8 per cent. Early in the
session there was a disposition to cover by
room traders, who play for small Croats, and
who like to close their oooks every Saturday, if
not every day. The rally was feeble and short
lived, and it soon gave way to general and ex
treme weakness, which manifestly was due to
compulsory liquidation or fright.
The Beading statement for October did not
help matters any, as it showed a lots of 1103,
000 on the railway business. The Coal and
Iron Company make no report bnt from the
well-known depression and dullness in the coal
trade it is fair to assume that its figures would,
not make a satisfactory showing. Readingstock;
Is supported with great tenacity by a bull pool,
which thinks there Is a big Short interest in
the stock; but we believe It will break nearly
next week. The Cleveland, Columbus, Cincin
nati and St. Louis stock has been very weak
It was watered and bulled np on the new con
solidation and the connection of the Drexel-Morgan-Vanderbilt
Party with the enterprise.
The St. Louis and San Francisco stock. has
been having a bard time in the market, and
from all accounts the road .will be kept busy
earning its fixed charges. Its stock Is pretty
sure to work lower, but It is not widely dis
tributed. A synopsis report of the Postmaster General
was published in one of the morning papers,
and it states that Wanamaker will ask Con
gress for power to contract with f responsible
parties for a limited telegraph service in con
nection with the postal department. Silver
will be exhaustively discussed by Secretary
W'indom. and it is probable that be will try to
please both sides of this .question. The ad
ministration will hardly propose or favor any
thing of a radical character, bnt the West has
a silver bee in its bonnet and will press free
coinage and probably in the end effect an en
largement of coinage under some restrictions.
The fight over currency questions deranges
business much in the same way as a discussion
over the length of a yard stick would check
mercantile engagements. The market looks
bad at the moment, and enforced liquidation
Monday appears probable. The bank state
ment was abont a stand-off, showing an in
crease in reserve of $400,000. Kven petroleum
felt the bearish influences, closing, at the bot

CHKJAao Only a moderate demand was re

piarket ruled steady without any important'
cnanges either here or at Other markets, a e
sldwtae usual local business there were some
few outside orders received, including some
buying orders again for May delivery on fori
eign account Foreigners of late have taken
fair quantities of May wheat. A good share of
the business to-day was in the way of changing,
closing out December and buying May. Prices
covered a range of only KKc, and the closing
was a lower for December and Jio higher for
May than closing prices of yesterday.
European market advices were generally in
dicative of a firm feeling and in tome instances
slightly better prices quoted. The export
clearances were large of flour and moderate of
wheat. Estimates on the visible supply were
for an Increase of about 1,400.000 to 1,600,000
Corn There was a very nervoss and unset
tled feeling among operators in corn when the
market opened to-day. After the excitement
attending the sharp advance It was uncertain
what course prices would take to-day. There
was not a great deal doing during the first hour
of tbo session, November operators giving De
cember their attention. The first trade in No
vember was reported at 60c, the next down to
60c, afterward 62 was paid, when the offerings
were rather more liberal, and scattering trades
were made at the decline down to 32c, and tho
month closed at 32c.
It was quite apparent after the first hour of
the session that a good many short lines had
been settled quietly yesterday, some operators
placing the amonnt at 660,060 bushels. It was
said one line of 300,000 bushels was bought in
around 6S60c, and small lots aggregating 10,
000 bushels at about the same price. It was
also rumored that 110,000 bushels wasxovered
to-day at about 60c by brokers who gave np the
name of a large local speculator, whose name

the part of several large traders to sell pro

was lost. At the close a weak feeling pre
vailed, last sales being at about Inside prices.
Mess pork Trading very light and -the feel
