THE PITTSBiniG- DISPATCH, MONDAY, JTJNE 24, 1889.

CHAPTER XLI. One Pocket Hand
Philip Pennycoroequick was on " his way
to Andermatt He had come to an under
standing with Uncle Jeremiah. His com
fort, his well-being for the fntnre depended
on Salome. Tlie old man had taken a fancy
to spend his winters abroad, and he had no
wish to remain tied to his business in smoky
Mergatrovd. He was quite ready to make
it over to Philip, but then Philip must first
be reconciled to hu wife, and bring her
home to hold rale over the house. A. Swiss
nurse had been fonnd ready to take the
child and accompany Philip to Andermatt.
Philip did not travel in the same carriage as
the nurse and child, but he saw to their lack
ing nothing. He occupied a compartment of a
first-class carriage by himself, and thought a
good deal about himself and bis wife. And
first it was particularly annoying to hare only
one pocket-handkerchief. The strictest in
quiries bad been made, but not more than the
one to use could be discovered. The washer
woman insisted that she had received none,
and the housemaid protested that she had
given a dozen. Between the two they had dis
appeared, and Philip was obliged to purchase
a half dozen fresh silk ones; he would not buy
more because he was resolved to get, with his
wife's aid, at the bottom of the mystery, and
recover the lost pocket-handkerchiefs, where
over they were. Unfortunately he was not
aware bow many he had had originally; but
Salome knew she had taken count of all his
clothing, knew the number of his socks and
also of his pocket-handkerchiefs. There was
some excuse for the havoc wrought among the
former, for the friction of boot heels and soles
does destroy the texture of worsted socks, but
no rubbing of noses injures the grain of silk
'Iknow,"saidPhllip. as the train drew np
atJThionville, "Iknowthat when one hasa cold
the secretion is acrid, but it is not sulphuric
acid to burn holes in pocket handkerchiefs.

disappearance of pocket handkerchiefs. 1 am

my nose with silk till it has been washed
three or four times and become flexible, and

gage bercSalome will know how many handker
chiefs I had. I am glad I am going to Ander
matt; it will set my mind at rest, and I can
have these hateful new handkerchiefs washed
But other matters occupied Philip's mind.
He had his wife's letters the last two In his
pocket, and he reread them; the jolting of the
train, the flicker of the light in the lamp over
head, made the reading difficult, and predis
posed him to take umbrage at her expressions.
"What especially annoyed him was her praise of
her new friend, the American lady, and it gave
him satisfaction to conjure up before his imagi
nation the scene pf introduction of himself to
her. and to picture himself, with frigid courtesy
looking at her, raising his hat, stiffly bowing,
ad with cold words giving her to understand
that her friendship with his wife was against
his withes, and must be discontinued. The
places at table d' note, he supposed, were ar
ranged according to priority. He would in
form the waiter that as he camo last, all bis
belongings, his wife, his sister-in-law, and her
nieces must relinquish their seats and come
down to the end of the table by him that
would separate his party from the ambiguous
stranger. If, after dinner, she came to speak

Office of Pittsburg Dispatch, 1
Satubdat. June 22, 18S9. J
In country preduce lines we note a better
tone and more hopeful feeling than a week
ago. Liberty street commission men report
a larger volume of business. "We, quote
from a few. A. representative of one of the
leading produce firms said: "Trade has
been better this week than last On Tuesday
we handled over 300 crates of strawberries, and
to-day over 100. On the whole we havo norea
f on to complain, as we sold more goods than
last week." Another reported: "Wo have not
had as active a Friday for a long tune as yes
terday. To-day has also been good with us and
the week all through shows an improvement
over any week for a month or two past" One
of our leading jobbers of cheese, butter and
eggs said: "Stuff has been moving out
freely- all the week and we have no
reason to complain of trade. If for the remain
ing week of June we do anywhere near as well
as we have done the past three weeks this will
be the best June wo have had. The value of
our sales will exceed any previous June so far.
and this shows a greatly increased volume of
business, as our goods are 20 to 25 per cent
The noteworthy feature of tho week's trade
in produce lines has been the low grade of
much of the stuff coming to market Continu
ous rains have lowered the quality of fruits
especially. Strawberries have bad a pretty
outside, but large quantities did not hold up to
the external promise.
A great deal of tho field and garden products
arriving this week were what a commission
man called "water-soaked," and required to be
used up promptly, as the close, sultry weather
between showers soon knocked tbem out
There has been a glut ot cabbage all the
week. Old stock is now well cleaned up, and
as the new will take the field from now on. a
better demand Is expected. The home-raised
strawberry approaches its finis for this year.
Raspberries will have the field next week. To
day there were few in the market, becauso
Eastern shippers had failed to get their prices
for a few days past
Grain nnd Floor.
The marked features of the cereal market
the past week were the upward tendency of
corn and oats, and the increased activity of
spring patent flour. The supply of corn has
been below demand all the week. Good oats
are also scarce. The receipts of cereals have
been unusually light
Spring patent flour in a jobbing way is fully
SOc per barrel higher than its lowest point a
week or two ago. There was a time when it
could be'laid down here in wood at S3 Sa This
week the best the jobber could do would be to
lav it down at S3 W.
The tone of trade Is very mnch improved.
When prices were driftinc downward, the band-to-mouth
policy was pursued by buyers. Now,
that the tide has turned upward, buying is
more active. A leading jobber reports, "My
sales or nour tnis wee were aounie tnose or
Another reported a 0 per cent increase this
week in volume of sales.
The increased activity, said one jobber, "is
partly due to the approach of harvest I have
always found trade better immediately preced
One thing is certain, that the flour trade has
decidedly improved in the week past

the reason that they could do better there than
Hams were advanced to-day, and are still too
low to furnish a fair profit to the packer.
to bis wife, he would offer Salome his arm
and ask her to come a stroll alone with him.
There were many ways in which this person
might be given to understand that she was no
longer desired as an associate. A feeble sense
of pity for her in her confusion at being shaken
off stirred in his heart, and then died away.
He had not written to announce his intention
of coming with the baby to Andermatt. He
intended to surprise Salome. There would be
something flatterine to himself in the change
of color, the delicht that Would spring up in
her eyes, the cry of recognition then the
humble hesitation, awaiting his permission to
spring into his arms.
Throughout the journey Philip maintained
his connection with the baby, though keepinc
it at a distance, as tho snn holds the earth and
swings It round it, but never allows the earth
to approach it too closely. And as the moon
revolves about the earth, so did the Swiss nurse
dance attendance on Philip the Little, rotating
also, of course, about Philip the Great.
On board the steamer, on the lake, Phllipsaw
a gentleman in light suii, with helmet cap, sur
rounded by a pnggary, wbo"attached himself
to several groups of tourists, and showed them
his blackened watch, or discoursed on thegreat
evangelist of Italy, Slgnor Count Capnll; or on
his scheme for rearing Mount St. Bernard dogs.
He at once recognized the man, and he canght
the fellow's eye on him; butBeaple Yooma.de
no attempt to renew acquaintance till Philip
was in a carriage to make the ascent from Am
steg by the Devil's bridge to Andermatt, when
he jumped into the same vehicle, and held out
his band with a boisterous jollity.
"How d'ye do do. PcnnycomeguIckT De
lighted to see you. Will find my daughter
right and flourishing at tho Hotel Imperial.
Of course, you go there. I was nearly killed
at all of the others. Look at my silver watch
case turned black with sulphuretted hydro
gen. But of course, you go where Sal is: Good
girl! excellent girl! You made a first-rate
choice when you took her, and you have my
blessing. Mercy on me, that is my gran dchild,
I presume. To think of it I a grandfather!
If you will do me a favour, my boy, you will
say nothing about onr relationship. I don't
want to be looked npon as a 'grandpa. Bless
me! at my time of life a grandpa! I'll share the
carriage with yon pay a third no a quarter,
has you are three, self, nurse and baby."
Philip became stiff and cold. He would not
take the hand offered him, nor say a word to
the man who had so unceremoniously entered
his carriage. Beaple, Yeo, alias Schofield, was
by no means disconcerted.
"You will take my card," he said. Then,
when ho saw that Philip would not do so: "But
no, I will introduce you myself, dear son-in-law,
to the proprietor. Now do look at this lie
zag road. I remember seeing a marionette
theater when I was a child, and this scene was
represented. Annmber of kttlo carriages came
running down the zig-zag one after another
and here it is the same exactly. It is 'worth
Tour looking. One, two, three upon my word
there are five carriages; and see now the horses
tear along and swing round the corners. It is
worth looking at."
There are certain insects which whenhan died
become rigid, and take all the appearance of
sticks. It was the same with Philip: the pres
ence, the address of this odious man reduced
or transmuted him into a bit of stick. He sat
motionless with his umbrella between his
knees, bis hands resting on the handle, his
neck stiff, and his eyes staring at a couple of
buttons ot unequal nature at the back of the
driver's jacket. He did not look at Beaple
Yeo, nor at the zig-zags, nor at the descendinc
train of. five carriages, nbr at the wondrous
scenery. Hewasgreatlyincensod. It was intoler
able that he should meet this man again, and
A Good Movement AVlih'n Rosy Prospect for
the Coming Autumn.
Business last week was largely of the kind
described as "average." There was a fair
movement of the leading staples, bnt new
features were conspicuously scarce. - All
agreed that the prospects for the fall trade
were as good as could be desired. Stocks
and oil were in the rut all week, but both
were remarkably well sustained under the
circumstances. Sales of stocks on call and
otherwise were 6,812 shares. Coke was better
and iron firmer.
Business in mortgages was lighter than usual,
the number recorded being 186, of a value of
$291,60(3. The largest was for 18,000. A num
ber were placed but not settled Of these one
was $25,000. Real estate began to pick up on
Monday and was active all week. The transac
tions so far as obtainable havo been reported
from day to day in this department of The
Dispatch. The number of deeds filed for
record was 229, representing 5370,837.
Said a prominent merchant of whom I re
quested an opinion: "With the assurance of
good crops, and with stocks of all the leading
commodities very low or completely exhausted,
the fall trade cannot be otherwise than active.
In fact the conditions favor a boom."
Building operations fell off somewhat last
week in consequence of bad weather. The
number of permits issued was 32, all for small
and medium-sized houses, the estimated value
of which is $05,455. The largest permit was
taken out by Casper Balstensperger for eight
brick two-story buildings on Ann street Tenth
ward. The next largest was taken out by Mar
garet Wilkinson for four brick two-story houses
on Main street Seventeenth ward.
A contractor vented his feelings thus: "The
beastly weather of the past two or three weeks
has almost knocked me out I have a nnmber
of houses under contract to be finished by Sep
tember 1, but haven't been able to do a thing
on tbem. Other contractors are In the same
predicament If the rain doesn't let up pretty
soon we will have to throw up the sponge."
The following item appears in the Scotch
supplement of the Timber Trades Journal:
"The standing wood on St Arnold's Hill, Glen
Ogil, Kirriemuir, the property of Mr. Stephen
Williamson, M. P., has been sold to Mr. Henry
Young, wood merchant The trees, numbering
8,680. in three lots, consist of full-grown larch
of excellent quality, upward of 70 years old.
The exact price lias not transpired, bnt it is re
ported to be a little under 2.000." Here is
nearly 110,000 for 70 years' growth of a timber
not valuable for lumber. Growing trees for
profit is an industry that ought to thrive in
A need of better facilities for the handling
of supplies and products in large manufactur
ing establishments has led to -the adoption in
New York of tramway cars, propelled by elec
tric motors. A greater part of the large mills
being supplied with electric light systems
renders this an easy matter, and it is safe to
predict that before long the electric tramway
will come to be considered a necessary feature
in mUl equipment
The Southern Lumberman of June IS con
tains a portrait of Dr. Charles L. Qoehrinc, of
this city, and a sketch of his geometrical wood
carving machine, which was noticed at length
in auj xusi-atuh some monies ago.
Captain Barbour labored hard an d earnestly
to excite at least a show of Interest In stocks
Saturday, but the effort was in vain, SO shares
of .Electric at 50$ being the only transaction.
There was a scramble for bank, bridge and
railroad stocks, bnt the only result of it was
the placing of along array of figures on the
board., Bids and offers were far apart in most
ases, and as there were no imperative orders
no attempt was made to bridge the chasm, and
the result was one of the tamest markets of a
very tame week. There was no change in
prices worth mentioning.
Gossip was generally bullish. Electric, it was
held by some, would soon emerge from under
the cloud that has obscured it for some time,
and, like truth, rise again. Its firmness under
peculiarly depressing circumstances waspointed
to as evidence of inherent etrenjrth. Friends of
the gas stocks were also sanguine of an Im
provement, as a result of larger earning and
that he should be near, if not with Salome.
But this was one of the annoyances he must
look on as Inevitable, one that would continu
ally recur. Really it is too bad of Salome not
to havo mentioned in one of her letters that
her father was at Andermatt. If she had done
that not 'all the king's horses, nor all
the king's men," wonld have got Philip
to make that expedition to Andermatt.
Finding that his son-in-law was indisposed to
converse, the cheerful and loquacious Colonel
addressed the baby, screwed up his mouth,
made noises, offered his eyeglass to the infant,
but withdrew it when the child attempted to
suck It From the baby, Yeo glided into re
marks addressed to the nurse, asked her how
lone she had been on the road, whether she was
French or Swiss, what was the name of her
home, how she liked England, etc.. regardless
of the frowns of Philip, who at length, to draw
oft his father-in-law from this unsuitable con
versation, said sternly:
"Pray how long have you been at Ander
mattT" "Oh! several weeks. I was there before my
Sal arrived. I have no doubt Janet wrote and
told her I was there, and filial duty filial
duty one of the most Deautlf nl and blessed of
the qualities locked in the human breast In
the human breast drew her to Andermatt to
make a fuller, freer acquaintance with the
author of her being than was possible In En
When the carriage had passed tho Devil's
Bridge and the little chapel at the month of
tho ravine, where the broad basin of fertile
pastnre opens out in which stands the village
of Andermatt a party of ladies and one gen
tleman was visible on the road, two in deep
mourning; two in colors, and three girls In half
"Hah!" exclaimed the Colonel, "my family."
Philip looked Intently at the party. Heat
once recognized Salome, and was satisfied that
the other in black was Janet To his great
surprise he saw Mrs. Sldebottom and the cap
tain. Who that slender lady was in alight
dress he could only conjecture. If he had not
been in the carriage with Beaple Yeo, he would
have told the driver to stop, and allow him to
descend and greet his wife; bnt the presenceat
his side of that man determined him to post
pone the meeting. He did not wish Salome to
see him riding beside her father, as though he
had made up his quarrel with him.
He drew back in his placo and looked another
way while driving past and Salome, who had
caught sight of the well known waving pug
gary. lowered her eyes. Beaple Yeo had his
hat off and was wafting a salutation to the
Then, when passed, he turned to Philip and
said: "You will do me the favor. I know, not
to announce your relationship; 'pon my word.
I don't want to be looked npon as a grand
father.'because I don't feel It Young blood
tingles in my veins."
The strange lady had stepped aside for the
carriage to pass npon the bank near that side
on which Philip sat, and he looked at her as he
drove by, looked at her with a feeling of aver
sion. It was too annoying of Salome to walk
out with this questionable individual and meet
him as he arrived, thrusting her almost into his
On reaching the Hotel Imperial he had to
undergo the annoyance of being,taken In hand,
patronized and presented by Beaple' Yeo.
Philip was a bad French scholar, spoke no
German, and tho English of the proprietor was
not understandable till one got used to it
Philip asked for his room, and said to him
self. "There will be time for me to wash my
hands and change my shirt: the collars are
limp not enough stiffening put in them, tbey
will not stand up. Ici! voyez!" to the maid.
"Is'thereabonlanger no, I mean a blanchis

soft water, et point de soda et washing pow
der." When he had dolivered over the pocket band
kerchiefs and had assumed a clean shirt and
brushed his hair and washed his -lace and
hands, he descended to the salle, and asked if
the ladies had returned from their walk.
"Note yet, salre." answered the porter.
"How long before they do come back?"
"I sure I can note tell. Bote too shopper
"Very well," said Philip, "go and send for the
nurse and the child. They must be ready. It
will be," said he to himself, "a pleasure- to me
smaller expenditures, when the reforms in
management projected and in contemplation
shall have been perfected. . .
The weakness of the tractions was attributed
to several causes. The fixed charges were said
to bo heavy, absorbing nearly all the earnings
and leaving very little for dividends. It was
stated, however, as an offset to this, that traffic
was increasing at a rats that would soon lift
the earnings far above expenses and make the
stock one of the most valuable on the list The
firmness with which it is held, and the indispo
sition to part with it at the current quotations,
favorcoiidence in this view.
The total sales ot stocks at New York Sat

that I have brought her the child."
When the nurse came in Philip ordered her
to sit with the baby in the veranda before the
hotel; tho air waslresh, but dry and delicious,
and the child cou1d"take no harm. Then he
ordered for himself some claret and iced soda
It was inconsiderate ot Salome keeping him
waiting. Hi was anxious to see btr, notwith
standing the provocation given him. Why
should she not have been there Instead of going
out for a walk? No doubt she and her party had
strolled to the Devil's Bridge,
"Walter," called. Philip. "Which is the
table at which the ladles sit?"
When told, he said: "I suppose there are
"Eight, salre; de American leddy stts dere."
"Eight; very well, waiter. I sit with them
in future, and tho American lady goes to an
other table. Do you understand? There Is no
place for her at the table where I sit"
Presently Philip heard the clear, pleasant
voices of the girls ana the ladles outsider and
their feet on the gravel. Ho started up and
hastened down the hall; but before he could
Teach the door he heard Salome's voice, partly
raised in cry as of pain, partly in extremity of
"It Is! It is! It can be no otherl It is my
How did she know it? To the male eye there
is scarcely any distinction between babies: as
one Iamb is like another Iamb, and one butter
cup like another buttercup, so are all babies
alike. Some havo dark hair, others are blondes:
but so among lambs, and there are varieties of
species In buttercups, in tho Alpine pastures
some are silver. Unwarned, unprepared,
Salome knew her baby; knew it at once, wltn a
leap of her heart and a rush of blood that roared
In'her ears and lor a moment dazzled her eyes.
She asked no questions how It came there, she
entertained no doubt whether it was her own,
her very own in a moment she had the littlo
creature in her arms, laughing, crying, cover
ing its face and hands with kisses; and the
child also knew its mother, had no wonder how
she came to be there, no doubt whether It wero
really she; It thrust forth Its little pats, and
held Salome by the copper-gold hair, and put
its rosy mouth to her cheek.
"Salome!" exclaimed Janet "how can you be
so ridiculous? This must be some other child;
who could have brought yours here?"
Then Philip appeared in the doorway but
Salome's eyes were blind with tears of joy, and
she did not see him; sne could sea nothing bnt
her child. He spoke she did not hear hin; she
could hear nothing bnt the cooing of her babe.
Philip stood beside her and touched her on
"Do you not know me?" be asked. "Are you
not glad' to see me?"
Salome stood still and released her child. Sho
was confused; she hardily knew whether sho
were awake or in the most beautiful, blissful
"Well this is hardly the the Salome do
you not know me?"
"Oh, Philip!" she gasped, "is it really you?
And you havo brought me my baby! Oh! how
good, bow kind," and she fell to kissing and
hugging her baby again.
Then Philip, finding himself put completely
in the background, condemned to a subsidiary
part to that played by Philip the Little, was
offended, and said, with a slight tone of ascerb
ity: "My dear Salome, he decorous. Give up
Phil now to the nurse, a Swiss young person,
and cdme, take my arm."
"Philip," said Salome, "Oh, Philip, how good!
how very dear of you!"
He felt her heart beating wildly against his
arm, as she clung to him at his side. Then she
began to sob. "It is too great happiness. My
darling! My darling pet! and looking so well,
"You mean tho baby?"
"Yes, of course, Philip."
She put her hand in her pocdet, drew out her
'kerchief and wiped ber eyes.
"By the way," said Philip, "howmanyhadl?"
"How many what Philip? Only this one, dar
ling." "I mean pocket handkerchiefs. All, all have
disappeared, and I have been condemned to
one. I have come here to Andermatt expressly
to know what my stock consisted of. Conceive,
only one pocket handkerchief left"

his aunt: with the three Labartes, to whom he
was introduced, and with a little heartiness to
clasp the hand of -the Captain. He was intro
duced, moreover, to the American lady, and
was thus given the well-considered opportunity
of saluting her with calculated indifference.
He somewhat exaggerated the cordiality of his
greeting of the Labarte girls so as. to empha
size the chilliness ot his behavior toward the
young lady from Chicago.
When the first excitement of meeting was
past Philip was overwhelmed with questions.
"How was dear Uncle Jeremiah was he much
altered?" "What was going to bo done about
tho mill?" and "What a puzzle it would be
about the administration I" "Could he re
establish himself legally as alive after he had
been decreed dead?" "What had happened at
Mergatroyd besides the return of Uncle Jere
miah?" "How had the people received him?"
"Had they erected a triumphal arch?" "Did
he write beforehand to say he was coming?"
"What sort of weather had they had in Eng
land?" "What kind of crossing had Philip?"
"Had baby suffered at all from the sea?"
"What did he think of the railway?"
There was no end to the questions asked,
which Philip answered as well as he could.
And as he received and replied to questions he
kept his eye on the strange lady, and consid
ered how she must feel shut out from all the
Interests which engrossed those connected with
him; and how much in the way sho ought to're
This she did observe, and drew aside, out of
hearing, and as Beaple Yeo came forword, fell
into conversation with him. His presence bad
an immediate numbing effect on Philip and
Salome and Janet They withdrew to another
end of the salon.
Philip had used his opportbnity to observe
the strango lady, and he admitted to himself
that she was good looking.
Of course there are differences in types of
beauty, and she was not of the type that com
mended itself to Philip so he thought She
had dark hair and a transparent olive complex
ion. Possibly a touch of dark blood in ber,
mused Philip, and he said to himself, "I will
take the first opportunity to look at her nails."
Her features were finely modeled, with a
firmness of cutting that showed she was no
longer In her teens, undeveloped. The flexible
transparent nostrils, the slightly curled curves
of the lips, the wavy hair over the brow
whether natural, the result of a trace of black
blnod.or artificially produced the splendid eyes
that looked at Philip looked down into him and
flashed through his whole being like a lamp
shining Into a cellar the delicate ears, the
beautiful neck, not too long, set on well-formed
shoulders all were observed by Philip.
"YeV'-said Philip, "she Is handsome, but she
belongs to that period of life which may be 24
or 34. She has got out of tbirteenhood, that is
He looked at Salome. If Salome was his Ideal
nothing could be more different than her typo
from the type of Miss Durham. There was a
childlike simplicity in Salome, an Ignorance of
the world which would make of her a child to
grey hairs; and this strange lady had clearly
none of this simplicity and ignorance: she
knew a great deal about the ways and varieties
of life. One Use Hiss Durham wonld never
go into gushing ecstacy over a baby and forget
that the first homage was due to her husband.
It afforded emphatlo pleasure to Philip to be
able to demonstrate before this single lady,
with such a circle of relatives about him six
ladles and one gentleman we are eight and
you are one. It was Joseph's sheaf with all
tho sheaves bowing down before it; it was liko
a man with a pedigree describing the family
tree ton self-made man. It was like a hen
with a brood of chickens clucking and strut
ting before a fowl that has never reared a soli
tary chick, hardly laid an egg; it was like a
millionaireshowlng his pictures, his plate, his
equipages, his yacht to an acquaintance who
had two hundred a year.
It has just been stated that the American
girl's eyes had flashed down into Philip's and
irradiated his interior as a lantern does a cel
lara wine cellar, of course and tho light re
vealed magnificent cobwebs, thick dnst and
some spiders. There was, unquestionably, in
Philip much rare good wine, excellent quali
ties of heart ana soul, but there were none of
them on tap, all were bottled, and all overlaid
with whitewash, and dust, and matted with tho
fibers and folds of prejudice." These masses of
cobweb, these layers of dust, these fat spiders
were objects of pride to Philip. Every year

there was no difficulty about requesting her to
take a place elsewhere. W hen she entered the

occupied at the table to which for some little
while she bad been admitted. She saw at a
glance that her place was taken, and she went
without demur, or a look of d!sappointment,to
the long table. She had sufficient tact to per
ceive that. Philip disliked her, and she had no
intention of pressing ber society on those who
did not desire it So far from seeming vexed, a
slight contemptnous smile, like the flicker of

Mrs. Sldebottom sat beside Philip, and plied
him with questions relative to the Intentions
of Uncle Jeremiah questions which he was
unable to answer, but she attributed his
evasive replies to unwillingness to speak,
and pressed him the more urgently. The Cap
tain was attentive to Janet, who had recovered
ber spirits, laughed and twinkled, and without
intentionally coquetting, did coquette with

A Quiet Day In Wheat, With n Slight Break
In Prices Cora Boomed by tbe

Chicago Early In Saturday's session a good
business was transacted in wheat hut during
the most of the time interest was lacking, and
an unusually quiet day was passed. A promi
nent local trader was ostensibly buying, at the
same time there was good selling by prominent
commission houses. July opened lAfi higher,
but the advanoe was not sustained. Rather
free selling caused gradual easing np of prices,
and a decline of c was established.
The early firmness was due to tbe strong
tenor of cable advices, and tbe improved
weather in the Southwest had a tendency to
create weakness and the subsequent decline.
Fluctuations were slight, and operators mani
fested but little interest in the market Tbe
volume of speculation was quite llberal.durlng
tho first two hours, but toward the latter part
of the session trading decreased perceptibly
and dullness prevailed.
The weather, although clearer throughout
the corn belt was regarded as too coof to cause
the crop to grow rapidly, and. as cables were,
firmer and shipping demand good, a firmer feel
ingprevailed, butprices only fluctuated. The
opening was firmer and ic better tor July
and steady on the longer futures. There was
fair selling on the appreciation, and. as buyers
did not take bold with a vim, slight recessions
were recorded, but closing sales showed a frac
tional gain over yesterday's last transactions.
Oats were quiet and steady and without in

and prices ruled irregular within a small range.
Early sales were made at 2$5c advance, but
the market soon weakened and prices receded

vailed and prices rallied again and closed
A decidedly stronger feeling prevailed in
lard. While the advance in prices was small,
there was less pressure to sell and the demand
was fainy active. Prices were advanced 2

WOLFF & RANDOLPH.Philadclph
One of tbe leading surgeons in the Army,
made the following characteristic remark!
"Water kills more soldiers than bullets." HU
meaning was, that soldiers who drank impure)
water, died by disease in greater numbers than"
those killed by bullets. The surgeon was right
Impure water, especiallyat this season, is a ter
rible cause of sickness and death. But the pub
lic say, what shall we dot There Is but one sen
slble thing to do, and that is to purify the)
water by mixing it with something that de
stroys all poison or disease-breeding germs, and
nothing does this like pure whiskey. But it
may be asked, where can I obtain pnra
whiskey T Professor Henry A. Mott says, -the
puiityof DuflVs Pure Malt Whiskey is abso
lute, and should commend it to tbe highest
public fivor." There are hundreds of families
that are drinking water constantly, and ara
kept In perfect health Dy simply mixing a little
of Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey in each glass they
drink. It is a simple and a sure preventive of
Summer diseases and eerm poisons, and is in
dorsed by tbe best people in the land.
