" Markets were not at all spirited, but cat
tle were a full Kc higher than a week ago.
A Diamond market butcher said: "I paid
about 20e per cwt more for beeves this week
than last, and a Bearer Falls butcher paid
Be for some prime cattle which is the high
est paid this year. The quality ot cattle
received this week was good. There were a
few primes weighing as high as 1,600. But
tliis class of cattle is no longer in demand in
our markets. The steer wanted here must not
go much. above 1,200 .pounds or ic in price.
Supplies ot cattle were large. A dealer in
Western stock said: "We will do well if we
pet our own hack this week. We had to pay
about as much at Chicago as butchers here are
willing to pay, and .hence will have to
work Tor glory instead of boodle this week.
One thing is sure that margins of profit are
almost wiped out from present appearances."

Wheat and Flour.
The week opens with firmer ma rkets. The
output of flour at Minneapolis last week was
10.000 barrels less than the previous week.
"While spot orders and export demand for
bakers flour have increased at that center the
past week, prices are off abont 10c per barrel.
Advices from London, as reported by the Min
neapolis Miller correspondent, are that crop
prospects very greatly improved during the
month of May. From present outlook the
harvests will be gathered from two to three
weeks ctrllertban last year in the Old World.
The London correspondent attempts to bear
thil statement by suggesting that crops are
growing too fast, and warns the reader not to
rel v too much on favorable crop prospects. At
this stage prospects were never better for
abundant harvests the world over, and this on
topot the downward drift for months past
promises cheap food for the year to come. The
speculators who have tried to bnll wheat and
flour the past six months have verily found
vev hard roads to travel. Nature has been en
tirely too bountif ol in her ideas for the schemes
of those who have attempted to advance the
price ot breadstuffs.

There was a' more buoyant feeling in-,bus-iness
circles yesterday than since the dis
tressing occurrence i.n the Conemaugh Val
ley. Bankers reported- rhore applications
for loans, stocks were more jctive and 'Oil
was stronger. In general trade there was a
liberal movement. Stocks in nearly all
lines have been materially reduced, in con
sequence of donations arfd sales for the ben
efit of the sufferers. Business people are hope
ful of a good trade therest of the summer,
and of an unusually busy season next fall as a
result of the large' expenditures necessary to
restore the devastated district and succor the
W.P. Wboldridge, or the Mutual Life Insur
ance Company, of New York,, returned from
Johnstown yesterday, whero he had been to
look after the interests ol his company. In a,
brief Interview he said: "We are carrying
about $500,000 in policies there; and so far as I
have been able to ascertain our losses are prac
tically nothing, nearly all ourpatrons in the dis
trict having, with remarkable good fortune, es
caped with their lives. We may. however, dis
cover additional losses later on. If the calamity
had happened at night there would have been
comparatively few escapes,, and our losses
would have been very heavy. I understand
that some of the other local companies lose con
siderable, but how much I do not know. It is
safe to say that all, losses will be promptly
George Mason, formerly of Wllkinshurg, now
of Tacoma, W. T has written to a friend at
his.tormer home as fallows: '-Business in lands
and houses Is booming here. Some choice lots
on the main street have brought 81,000 a front
foot. Houses are going up In every direction
many of them large and costly. The business
houses will favorably compare with those of
any other city in the West All real estate
transactions are conducted through the Ex
change, which works admirably. They were
talking-about'a Real Estate Exchange in Pitts
burg when I left there. Has it been estab
lished! If not it should be without delay. It
is a great advantage to all dealers in realty.
This city, In my opinion, is destined to become
one of the most flourishing In the Northwest
There are several Pittsburg men herei and con
siderable Pittsburg capital has been invested
in various local enterprises."
Twenty-two mortgages were placed on record
yesterday representing 833,900. The largest
were: 53,000, S4,000,.S900, 82,600 and SLOOO-all
home money. A real estate dealer said: "We
have done a big business in mortgages this
year larger than ever beforeln the same time.
How do I account for HT Well, capitalists
seem to have found out thatreal estate is a
good and safe investment. That is one reason.
Another 13 the abundance and cheapness of
money. I know of several instances where
money borrowed at 6 or 5K per cent and in-
kvested in unimproved lots has returned a profit
of 15 or 20.. This was not Inflation, but legiti
mate expansion and enhancement caused by
the rapid increase of population. People must
Real Estate Exchanges have proved sohenefi
clal wherever they have been introduced that
the neglect to establish one in Pittsburg is al
most ucaccoyntable. From the talk among
real estate men last winter and in the early
spring it was conjectured that this omission
would soon be repaired, but months have
passed and the realization seems as far off as
ever. Why this apathy? It cannot be because
a majority of- the dealers are opposed to the
scheme, for the reverse is known to be the case.
Nearly all admit th 3 necessity of an exchange
to properly handlo the rapidly growing busi
ness. The true reason, probably, is' tho lack of
efficient leadership to push the project He
who will do this will deserve, and will receive,
the applause of his fellow-citizens. It is too
important a matter to be allowed to die for
want of nourishment
The Southern Lumberman says: "A friend In
Pittsburg complains that cypress shingles
shrank so as to cause leaks, and he had to re
new bis roof with pino shingles. The fault was
.most probably in the workman, and not the
shingles.. A shingle is a piece of wood 16 to 20
inches in length, from 516 to of an inch thick
at one end, and from H to 1-32 at the other, and
4 inches in width. But there are dimension
shingles, and random width shingles. A.dimen
slon shingle means that all the pieces in the lot
are the same width, ana five inches is the favor
ite width, and each piece is a shingle and a
fourth that is, four pieces count five shingles.
Random width run all the way from, three
inches up to a foot in width. Some carpenters
call a foot wide piece a shingle, but it is three
shingles in one piece A-man' that will nail
a random width over eight inches on the top of
a house ought to quit the carpenter's trade, and
get a place in a baker's shop. Then If he spoils
a job he can eat It"
