COMMERCIAL FAILURES.—According to Kenvp's Mercantile Gazette, the number of failures in England and Wales gazetted during the week ending Sept. 4th, was 77. The number in the corresponding week of last year was 69, shew- ing an increase of 8, being a nett decrease in 1897, to date, of 148. PARTRIDGE SHooTiNG.-Partridge shooting opened en Wednesday, and reports from various districts in England and in Scotland point to excellent prospects. Birds are in most instances plentiful and strong, but in some parts of the country they are difficult to get at as yet, because of the corn crops. Concerning Cheshire and North Wales a correspondent states The weather opened dull but dry. Towards noon, however, rain commenced to fall, and continued heavily for the remainder of the day. Sport generally was satisfactory. There is an abun- dance of shelter among the roots, while grain crops generally are cut. Keepers on the estates of the Duke of Westminster, Lord Crewe, Earl Egerton, the Marquis of Cholmondeley, Lord Penrhyn, Mr. Assheton-Smith, and Sir W. W. Wynn report a successful breeding season. Parties out reported that coveys were numerous and birds strong and healthy. TOBKRCULOTJS MEAT.—At the Liverpool Police Court, on Wednesday, fines and costs amounting to £10 12s. 2d. were imposed upon a Birkenhead butcher named Ernest Beer, for exposing for sale six pieces of beef unfit for human food. It was found that the animal had suffered severely from tuberculosis. Moreover, in the dressing of the animal great care and skill had been taken to remove all traces as far as possible of the disease. The lungs had been removed altogether, as had also most of the glands. Afterwards, when the defendant was seen, he stated that he bought the beast in Cheshire, and bad it slaughtered in Rock Ferry. He also admitted that the lungs were too bad to send across to Liverpool.—For the defence, Mr. Madden remarked that the cow bad been purchased with others at Barnston, in Cheshire. On her way home she had become very skittish, and was taken to New Ferry and slaughtered. His client had paid X10 for the animal, which was not a bad price for an old cow.
