Vhat a question."
t-i -Tes, bnt it ia one John Day asked me
" last night."
"Have you seen him?"
"Under the Elm at the Taylor House.
"We talked of you fcr two hours."
"Do that again, it leaves your lips ready
to kiss. Did your Iriend le Diable teach you
Tou're a fool."
"I know, but it is sweet folly. "What a
divine woman tou are. From that ribboned
hat a woman's bat is always part ot her
to these little feet that kick at me so vi
ciouslyvou are without a flaw. Don't
speak. Are your eyes purple or blue?
They are deep, I know, for I have lost my
soul in them. There is a well in the valley
that fascinates me as they do. When you
will not look on me, I sit on the curbing
and drown mv thoughts in its dark water.
Your lashes and its ferns are like "
"Are von done?"
"Jfo, but I can stop. May I smoke?"
"What did John say?"
"Said things about you.?"
"Don't be sarcastic He said that he
"Yes, and I said the same."
"You did not?"
"I did. though; but not until he had told
me your promise to marry him. Don't look
so blue; the engagement gives zest to the
"Is not that what it is? Common love is
too prosaic; it takes a touch of danger to
awake enthusiasm. This other lover makes
the chase exciting."
"I hate you!"
"My tigressl Hate on a woman's lips
means love. The flash of your great eyes
has left too deep a burn in me for you to re
fuse two tears to cool it with. I know you
love me; have read it in a thousand ways.
Your eyes, mouth and touch have spoken it,
and with an eloquence that left me trem
bling in a mute applause. You do love me,
or else I swear that every smile has told a
lie, and your sweet face is a pinched mask
"I do love you."
"I knew it Kiss me! I will tell the
'Owl' of this when I meet him next, and his
face will become soberer than ever."
"Yon must not meet him."
"Oh, yes, I must! I like to pose my lazi
ness against his sterner background. The
effect is, if not artistic ludicrous. He is so
intense, hot-headed, mad; while I well, I
am cool, and perhaps as much a vagrant as
this wind, and do love to give his jealousy
a fillip now and then. I know you love

You are a woman, and women like the
moon reflect the light, or the love of every
sun that shines upon them; if two suns hap

"He says von talked together."
"And of mc"
"He told the truth."
"What makes you sulk?"
"'Sulk!' Do you call this sulking? Is
it sulking to be still while 10,000 words tear
my heart for utterance; sulking to feel life
breaking into fragments and never give a
sigh? Do you know what Paul Sommers
and 1 did last night? No? We shook
hands and agreed that he who could win you
should have you, and that the other should
never see your lace again. Heaven may be
large enough to hold a Trinity, hut there is
no room for such a thing on earth. I do not
plead for vou to love me, for that would be
like pleading for his death, and though I
hate him, he shall never say I took advant
age of him in this struggle ior your heart
But if you listen, I will tell my love;
tell how you stirred in me the pas
sion that is kin to birth and
death; tell you the tale of those sweet
hours when there was no Paul Sommers;
tell you my heart, for what I say is printed
deep on it so deep that God Himself could
not efface the words. Perhaps the telling of
the story will awake again the leelings
that my voice has stirred. Perhaps 'twill
leave you listening as earnestly as it did
when I first said 'I love you.' Perhaps you
will shed a tear or two and then kiss mc
"You and I were born under the same
roof, for though hotel, it was a root and
home to us. The same sea sung us to sleep
in summer, and frightened us in winter.
For 23 years vou and I have been together,
married in all but name. I never had a toy,
half of which did not belong to you. Your
sweetmeats were half mine.
"In these later rears a light has come into
your eyes and a look upon your face that
has made a slave of me. You have become
a woman, beautiful your other lovers tell
you, bnt more than that to mc To me your
mind is more skyey than your eyes. I see
its stars rather than Iheir light It is the
serious woman, the great woman, that is in
you whom I love These other men know
nothing of the poet, but I have heard her
sing. To them you are merely woman; to
me you are a priestess.
"We have been engaged two years two
years that hold the whole of life, perhaps.
I could repeat our vows. It was beneath
this tree that I first kissed you. But the
tows and scenes that have been so real are
fast becoming echoes and dead ghosts to mc
I feel like a man who has dropped his
glass after he has turned it up to drink. All
I have expected seems fast spilling on the
earth; for the lips that have been kissed and
the vows that have been spoken comfort us
as little as sung songs and drunken wine
It is the lips we want to kiss that inspire in
us love's hope or madness.
"We have been very happy. Mv best

greater thought; I have painted by the light
S ofyonrfacc The days have been filled
with dream men and women, brothers and

"What of him?"
"You love him."
"I love you let me speak, I must I do

up the dream where he broke it"

better, and forget where it was mended."

"Do you mean it?
Grace Dexral thought she did mean what
she said to John Day, bet when Paul came
faun the hotel where he was stopping the
aedayshe met him with a smile It
my have been a conventional one, a com
pany tn;i. r a utile of dntv: that inr-ar-
M tag which Bay fool us or may not I
Whatever kind it was PAuI seemed undis
turbed, because he was used to smiles
of every kind, perhaps, or it may
be he did not notice it at all.
This "vagabond," as he was fond of
calling himself, was generally careless of
people's attitude to him. He loved Grace
Dexral, hut even she could not jar his cool,
self-poise It was this baffling quality in
him that had excited her interest more than
anything else All other men seemed anx
ious to be her slaves, but he had never
asked the privilege It was a new experi
ence for Grace, and with that strange con
trariness of women that interests them in
those who seem uninterested in them, she
fell in love with him, and almost without
thought that she was doing anything incon
sistent with the love that was to make her
John Day's wife. It seems impossible that
a woman could love two men, but some im
possibilities are facts, or only seem impossi
bilities because inconsistent with our theo
ries or social customs.
John Day was a descendant of the Puri
tans, inheriting all their seriousness; an
artist, he painted sober pieces ctily. His
genius was the kind that paints a passion
with its thorns far better than the pleasures.
He was a genius and would be great, Grace
knew, but such men are sometimes tire
some, especially if one is compelled to
breath, their atmosphere all the time, and
when easy natured Paul Sommers, who was
careless of greatness and everything else,
came to Waterford he seemed to unstrain
something in her that had been keyed up to
playing pitch all her life. Her love for
him was a sort of delicious abandon. John
Day inspired her; beneath his eyes she was
the great woman he said she was, but this
man rested her. Although she bad known
Mm only three months he was already
more a confident than the other. How
could she help it if there were emotions
in her John Day had never waked, and
could not touch? Could she help it
cither, if Paul Sommers stirred them all?
Her double love had no more wrong inten
tion than you have when you look at one
picture after another in a gallery. Perhaps
your love of pictures should be satisfied by
one; you ought to sit before a single frame,
no doubt, and feel entirely satisfied, but you
are not even if it be a master, but wander to
the next and next, receiving great messages
or satisfaction of some kind from them all.
There is no man who entirely satisfies any
woman. Your good wife dreams of men far
belter than you are. Plato's theory of men
and women as halves of a whole is con
venient and fits our customs, but it is only a
theory after all, and has been cruelly
contradicted in every one's experi
ence The halves have been separated
so long that the seams where thev
were joined are often worn smooth, and if
tney were not, wno would warrant that each
half would invariably find its fellow? The
fact that they have been separated makes it
possible for them to separate again, and if
they could ever live aDrt they can alwavs
live apart Beside this, there are some
wholes that are not perfect all round; ap
ples, for instance, that if divided evenly
will leave one hall sonnd and the other rot
ten. Becauie a thing is bounded by a circle
does not necessarily make every Dart of it
alike, and great as the magic of love is, it
cannot altogether deceive us. It cannot
make a Paul Sommers out of a John Day,
and some women, one of "whom was Grace
Dexral, have need of both. Grace did not
think of these things; she would have
thought it a sin to do so; hut, lite all wom
en, did them and thought nothing of it
"What harm to sit here on the porch and
watch that lazy man? How like Bacchus'
head his looked against the Tines. She
caught herself wondering if he were ever
drunk, and somehow it did not seem dread
ful iu the least She was sure if he had
been, it was with wine Men liked him
she knew. His songsat their suppers were
filVn) nf Wliat n hnrt in TWn wftmon-htit
if she had not been a woman he would not
have loved her. He did love her she fell
his burning kisses now, and 'blushed that
the remembrance did not make her angry.
His lips parted as she looked at them as if
humming a song, though there were no
words. She wished he would speak, not
that the silence was awkward, but she
wanted to hear his voice. . it would
finish the delicious impression he was
making on her, though she shivered a little
at what she knew he would say. By and
by she forgot him, or he became part of a
picture. His head was crowned by the
vines, and there she could see, no farther,
but beyond the lithe body stretched her rose
bordered walk, beyond it the dusty road,
the lake, and the hills, and sky. A dark
green worm was crawlingnp one of the pil
lars of the porch. She heard the swish of
scythes in the long, damp grass for it was
haying time the talk of meq about the
leather; and almost smelled the sweat she
saw them wipe away with great red hand
kerchiefs wonld if the overpowering odor
of the fresh-cut grass had not filled the air.
His voice startled her, though she had
been expecting it; it was as if one of the men
or women you have been painting should
suddenly address you.
"I am going away to-morrow."
"You ought to have gone to-day."
"I know, but if I had I should have lost
"what of the many days that come?
What of to-morrow? Will it not be lost,
and the next day, and the next?"
"Yes, but I have shortened the loss by
"Why any loss?"
"Do you say that?"
"Why not? Because you have no right
to both of us; because I must have all of
you or none; because because 'why nots'
stretch ont like the kings in Ifacbtth's vis
ion until the crack of doom."
"What if I you both."
"Impossible!" s -
"Yet I do love you both."
"What are you made of ?"
"The common stuff of mortals. Do you
not love two kinds ot wine or more? You
read more than one poet; and confess, you
have seen other women with eyebrows that
arched more than mine."
"Yes, but never such a woman as you
"No, hut other women, women that make
you feel as I cannot; in whose eyes you see
other things, whose voices have other tones,
and yet who are as attractive in their way as
I am in mine."
"Not to me."
"Not to-day, you mean. Go to-morrow as
you plan. You will soon learn that other
women have eyes and lips. Am I the first
woman you have kissed? What made you
kiss them? Love. Tt's nature! We have
done her wrong. Stay here and V will give
you all I have for you; not all, for there is
something that answers to another voice I
shall marry neither, for until a woman can
marry two, or her husband is not held com
plete answer to all wishes, marriage will be
a curse to some Why should you make me
marry you, can you not love me an I am?
Neither of you shall go."
"But there can be no partnership in you."
"Ask' John Day."
"The twilight fits my mood.'
"You are always sad."
"In that I am like the world, beneath all
laughter is a strain that starts the tears. I
spentthe day with children, .they are called
happy, and I thought to learn their secret;
but I counted smiles and sobs, a'nd,the latter
were ahead." ,.

Interesting Reminiscences far the Oldest
Mew York Sun.l
The death of Oliver H. Paxson, an aged
railroad engineer, which occurred a short
time ago, leaves Hayes Smith, of Columbia,
the oldest engineer on the Pennsyl
vania road. He entered the service
of the company as a conductor in
1840, and is now running a shifting
engine in the Columbia yards. When Mr.
Smith began his railroad, career, the present
Pennsylvania road extended from Colum
bia to Philadelphia, and was operated by
the State of Pennsylvania. At that time a
crew consisted of an engineer, fireman and
conductor, and the engines were constructed
without cabins or sand boxes. Mr. Smith
tells many interesting reminiscences of rail
roading in those days. He says that
in 1845, Joseph Amos, a passenger en
gineer, built a small cabin over his engine
boiler at his own expense. It was a rough
structure, but the officials of the road were
pleased with the idea and had all their en
gines made with cabs, and reimbursed Mr.
Amos. Sand was put on the tracks by the
firemen, who, when the train was rounding
a curve, would occupy a position on the
bumper of the engine and dip the sand
from a tin bucket and pour it on the tracks.
Joseph K. Weitzel, ot Harrishurg, was the
first mail agent on this line He would
stand on the bumper of the car, and as the
train passed the station the mail bag was
thrown to him by the station agent.
The Superintendent of the road in those
days was the Hon. James Cameron, brother
of the late Simon Cameron. Since that
time there have been 17 superintendents on
that division. For several years after Mr.
Smith first went on the road he was a man
of general utility, serving as conductor,
baggagemaster, brakeman, and was also to
jump off at the slopping places to oil the
axles. He has in his possession several
relics of railroading in those early days or
its history, but the one he prizes most
highly is a payroll of the motive depart
ment "of the Philadelphia and Columbia
Railroad for the month of August 1843.
At that time the company employed 20
engineers and as many firemen, and, ac
cording to the payroll for that month, their
wages aggregated $1,662 36, of which sum
$990 was earned by the engineers alone
QUARRYING IN INDIA.
Frlmlllve Methods of Breaking Up Rocks
for Building Purposes.
There is in India a caste of people known
as wudders, whom I may, in general terms,
describe as the navvies ot India. They are
of two classes those who work in stone,
and those skilled in the manipulation of
earth. The stone wudder is a hardy, sinewy
fellow, whose stock in trade consists of a
house, which, when on his travels,
he transports on the back of his
donkey, or else on the head of his
wife (no remarkable instance of tyranny,
since it consists of nothing but a mat and a
few bamboo .stays); then,, he has a heavy
crowbar, a few iron wedges, some earthen
pots, a dog, and a small stock of rice. Ar
rived at his quarrv, his first care is to lay in
a stock of firewood, which he cuts in the
jungle, and moves by means of a bandy or
cart, with low wheels of solid tim
ber, drawn by a pair of buffaloes
an important part of his equipment
which I omitted to include before in the
list. The wood is piled in small quantities
on the surface of the rock and ignited,
usually during the night their favorite time
for work. After the fire has been steadily
kept up for some hours, the upper layer of
the rock expands sufficiently to produce a
separation from the sub-stratum. The sep
aration is accompanied by a dull bursting
sound, and the extent of the severance is
ascertained by a series of taps with the
crowbar, the response of which is conclusive
'to a practiced ear.
The next operation is to break up this
loosened bed of rock into fragments of a
size convenient for handling, and this is ef
fected by means of a round ' boulder of
greenstone, as large as can be lifted to his
head with the assistance of another man.
This he dashes down with all his might on
the rock, and sometimes succeeds in mak
ing a tractnre with a single throw; but it
olten requires to be repeated many times,
and it is wonderful, considering the clumsi
ness of method, with what success he turns
out handsome square blocks of stone, of
dimensions well suited for building. This,
however, is more to be attributed' to the
natnral tendency ot the stone to "square
fracture than to the skill of the wudder.
EFFECTS OF CANALS ON COMMERCE.
What the improvement ol Waterways Bti
Done for Europe.
The Rhine, on a navigable length of 435
miles, has a yearly traffic of 5,500 vessels
averaging 200 tons each, ranging from 386
vessels of 50 tons to 14 of 1,300 tons. On
the Danube the number ot vessels is about
800, ranging from 75 to 625 tons, average 200
tons. On the Elbe the number is 9,400,
average tonnage 106. From Vienna there
may be reckoned three great waterways:
The Danube, the Danube-Oder canal,
giving communication with Prussia, and
the projected connection from this canal to
On IheDanube the westward limit of nav
igation is at present Begensburg,281 miles
from Vienna, although it is probable that
the channel as far as Dim, 131 miles further,
is well suited for chain traction. Connec
tion could be made with the Bhine in either
ol two directions: firstly, from Dillingen,
about 31 miles below Ulrii, via Eonigsbronn
(1,640 feet above sea level) to the Neckar,
and from Cannstadt to Mannheim; and sec
ondly, bv Kehlheim, Nurnberg and Bam
berg (1,375 feet) to the Main, and thence
from Frankfort to Mainz.
The canalization of the Main from Frank
fort to Mainz has been attended by the most
noteworthycommercial results, in spite of
the dry season following the completion of
the work. The saving ot ireigbt on goods
to and from Frankiort has amounted to
37,300, and to other places between the
terminal points 19,750. The saving.on
coal freight alone has paid 6 per Cent 'on
the Frankfort Harbor Works.
A canal is now projected from Strasburg
to Ludwigshafen, which would make Stras
burg a western central point of European
inland navigation, as Vienna must be the
central point for Eastern Europe.

Chicago. In wheat there was moderate
trading early and quiet later. Speculative
operators did not take to either side very favor
ably. The feeling, however, was steady and
rather firm. The opening was steady and prices
held most of the session within Kc range.

December and z for May. Cable advices
were a little more encouraging, quoting Jd ad
vance for spot, but no change otherwise. Rus
sian shipments were light. The wheat crop of
the United Kingdom was estimated by some
English authority to not exceed 70,000,000 bush
els and that the import requirements would
equal 150,000,000 bushels. This estimate is
somewhat at variance with former official state
ments, which placed tbe crop close to 80,000,000
Anrices from the Northwest state that re
ceipts will probably not let up until after the
end of this month. It was estimated that tbe
visible snpnly would show an increase of 2,000,
000 to 2.600,000 bushels. Rains have been quite
general throughout the winter wheat country
and all through the Northwest. Trading to
day was chienr local. Some foreign buying
orders were received both for December and
A fair trade was transacted in corn within
narrow limits, and a strong feeling prevailed,
though no material advance was established.
Small receipts and unsettled weather were the
chief innuenceswhich offered effectedvalues, the

session. It was feared the wet weather would ar

good demand existed for December. Themarket

Oats were traded in to a moderate extent, and
a firmer feeling prevailed. "A large operator
sold heavily at the top, and the slight gain was
lost. October met with a better Inquiry, and
sold at iir advance.
In pork only a fair trade was reported, and
the feeling was somewhat unsettled. Offerings

THE TREND OF TRADE.
Weekly Eeview of Grain, Produce

BDTTEEINE COlIlBGTO THE FRONT.
Grade of Cattle- Below the Standard and
PB0YISI0NS ARE DOWN TO BED BOCK
Office of Pittsbubo Dispatch,
SATUBDAY, October26, 1889. $
The marked feaiure of the country pro
duce trade during the past week has been
the quietness of dairy products. The up
ward movement of hutter a few weeks ago
called out the reserves, and markets have
of late been o'vei stocked. Dealers report
that the trade has been veryVnuch curtailed
by the advent of fautterine.
A Chicago commission man, who was in
the city to-day, reported that tbe butterine
manufacturers of that city lost fully $160,
000 by the- adverse decision of our Courts last
season. He said:
"Western Pennsylvania is considered by
tbe Chicago oleo manufacturers as their
best territory, and they are perfeetly will
ing to bear all the expenses entailed by
violations of Pennsylvania laws."
Short Supply of EgK.
The supply of fresh eggs is not up to de
mand, and prices are tending higher. A
Clinton peddler, who gathers hen fruit for
Pittsburg markets through the western part
of the county and in the Panhandle region,
reports that he was unable thfs week to gather
more than a single case, whereas his custom
calls for four .times that number. He was
forced, he said, to come down a shade on but
ter, but bad nb trouble in getting an advance
The potato situation has improved slightly
the past week. Large quantities of poor stock
were dumped onto our markets a week or two
ago and the bottom dropped out of trade.
Late receipts are of better quality, and mar
kets have steadied up. Buyers are taking ad
vantage of low prices to lay in stock, and it is
clear that potatoes have touched their lowest
price for tbis season.
Cereals In" Large Supply.
It will be seen by reference to our domestic
market column that receipts of grain and bay
for tbe week were 278 carloads, an excess of 55"
loads over last week. The difficulty of secur
ing transportation has, no doubt, prevented
supplies from being still larger.
Hay baasbown drooping tendencies all the
week, and holders are forced to accept lower
Corn alone In cereal lines holds up to last
week's prices. The "wheat and flour situation is
The supply of good milling wheat has been
light in this market of late and prices are
Tbe quality of cattle receired at the East
Liberty yards the past week was much below
the average, and markets were very slow at a
decline There were very few export cattle of
fered. Tbe high grades are getting Into strong
hands who are able to hold them and wait bet
ter nrlces. It is evident that our markets have
notheen consideredgood enough of late by
bolders of -export .cattle. A Kerr's Island
drover, who spent a part of the week in Chi
cago, reports concerning tbe live stock situa
tion there, as follows:
"Light cattle are ia higher than they were a
week ago, but heavy and prime beeves are
about the same. There Is a strong demand for
feeders from distillers, there being two well-
known Western Pennsylvania distillers in Chi-.
cago mis weeic ouying up au me ieeaers iney
could secure. For this reason the light grades
of cattle advanced.1!.
Hogs Taking n Tumble.
The run of hogs at Chicago to-day was 14,000,
and the outside price was $4 10, a drop of 25c at
least since this time last week. Provisions,
though affected to some degree by the tumble
in hogs, have undergone no change in this mar
ket. A member of -one of our packing firms
said to-day: "Vfp are down to bed-rockprlces1
now, and cannot go lower witnout loss."
The complaint made through this column a
short time ago that the Pennsylvania Company,
in the section between Crestline and Fort
Wayne, didjiot afford proper facilities to live
stock shippers no longer holds. One of our
leading stockmen reports a great Improvement
in this respect the past week, and live stock is
now coming-promptly through from the section
referred to to-the East Liberty yards.
AN ORIGINAL IDEA.
A Olarket JQonio an the Allegheny Slver
J,nit Week's Baslnese.
. Land is scarce and valuable In the busi
ness part of Pittsburg, and any suggestion,
idea or plan to ease up the pressure and in
crease the business- area is entitled to re
spectful consideration. From a multiplic
ity of devices there may eventually be
evolved a project "which will give the neces
"With this purpose in view, a former resi
dent of Boston, bat pow a prominent manu
facturer of this city, whose name if at the
command of anyone who may become inter
ested in the matter, in coversation with
The Dispatch 'representative Saturday,
advanced an idea, at once original and
novel, the adoption of which, in his opinion,
would bring'intouse a large amount of sur
face space in the heart of the
city, which5 is" 'greatly needed for
business purposes. The idea is this:
That when 'the contemplated bridge
over the Allegheny river, at Fifth street, shall
be built, the space between It and the Sixth
street bridge he floored and roofed over so as
to form a building of sufficient size and strength
for a market house ior the two cities, and so
constructed as to afford a convenient passage
way for teams and pedestrians from one side of
the river to-the other. In other words, tbe
proposition is to make a continuous bridge from
Fifth to Sixth street; roofed and floored, with
doors, windows, stills and other conveniences
for the purposes of a general market, and with
roadways at the sides and In the center to allow
of free and easy ingress and egress.
He is perfectly satisfied as to the feasibility
I of the scheme. As to-the cost, he thinks it
could bo easily defrayed oy the proceeds or. the
sale ol the property now used for market house
-purposes in Pittsburg and Allegheny; or. If the
cities should prefer' to hold this property for
other municipal uses, bonds could be Issued to
cover the expense, which would not be great.
Rents from stalls and other market privileges
would be large enough to soon cancel the debt,
The gentleman, who has given considerable
thought to the matter, maintains-that It is en
tirely practicable, in proof of which be cities a
similar structure over the river Seine at Paris,
one over the Danube at Buda-Festh. and the
old London bridge over the Thames, which was
covered with substantial houses, used both for
residence andbuslness purposes.
Should the space between the Sixth and
Seventh street bridges be deemed preferable
for any reason centrality of location, for In
stancethe improvement could be made there.
Tbe principal features, of local business last
week were continued activitv in the Iron trade,
and a liberal movement of all the staple prod
ucts. There were no material changes in values,
but they were well maintained. There was a
surplus of money, although many other points
east and west complained of a scarcity. Bates
were steady at 56 on call, and 67 on time.
Ileal estate was active.
In the specnlatlvehrandh the features were a
hurl hrnak in Philadelphia Gas ComDanv stock.
and a sham advance In petroleum. The In
fluences affecting the. Philadelphia stock were
those which have been: used bv the bears for
some time insufficient supply indicating a per
manent snorrage, ana loss ai Business resulting
in decreased earnings, Tbe bears on the mar
ket were the only ones able to And sufficient
reasons for tbese opinions. Tbe stock dosed
steady at a fraction above the lowest point of
The advance In' petroleum was due entirely
to statistical conditions, which show a rapid
ftrowth in consumption 'and a steady depletion
n stocks. In view of. this fact, and of the ad
mitted scarcity of the product, and with no
prospect of making good tbeJ deficiency from
territory where operations are now In progress,
the qplnion widely obtains tbat the present ad
vance will not be checked until, the price
reaches $1 25 or $1 60. Statistics favor the latter
figure. -.7 -
So far as business Wit concerned Saturday's
stock market was a failure, the only sale being
10 shares of Philadelphia Gas, but what It
lacked In activity It gained in strength, nearly
tbe entire active list being firm and higher, tbe
only notable oxception being Switch and Signal,
for which 18 was the best bid.
Philadelphia Qas was decidedly stronger and
verv snarlnslv otfarerL It sold In aamallwav
at mil at whloM figure meral hnadred state I
could have been marketed, but holders, having
in some measure recovered from their scare,
concluded to hold on a little longer, as the tide
had turned In their favor. Xt was the opinion
of some that the object of the only seller of tbe
stock was to start a movement which would
enable him to load up,tbeing on the short side.
