New York. April 5. Unfavorable news
does not affect stock prices us it did a
month or so ago, which is be,t illustrater",
perhap, by the course of the market to
day. In the first place Loudon was aaiu
a seller; a iharp rive in wheat was re
ported because of alleged damage to the
crop, and. furthermore, iu the early trad
ing distilling and cattle feeding recorded
a break ot nearly two points on the rest
oration of the stories current for the past
few ilays that the decision In the qoo war
ranto proceedings would be against the
company. The slump In Dietitian at the
etnrt brought about a fractional decline in
the general list, but General Electric,
which has been under the hnmtuor for a
day or so, suddenly doveloped strength
and moved up from ds to 41. The low
priced issues were taken hold of and in a
ehort time an advance of to IJf was
established. In tho afternoon dealings
American Sugar suddenly rose on a re
ported advance in certain grades of re
fined. This frightened the Deaf interest
into covering and incidentally had a good
effect on the general market. Whiskey
told up to 86 the best price of the day

Chicago that the company had beau
worsted in the ijuo warranto matter. Del

TliC'.T" is DO doubt that one iortioo of the
body uf Lieu. Wiijne, the hero of Stony
Point "Mad Anthony," as he waa popu
larly termed was interred at the place
when he died, uud the other iu his native
county. His original burial place was
Fort Preaque iale, upon the site of which
the city of iirie. Pa., now stands; the other
locality honored :ls his lust resting place is
llaiJhor cemetery, iu Chester county, Pa.
This curious circumstance was brought
about iu the following liiuuuer:
In the year lsl." tlie family of this famous
man waa given permission to remove his
dust to Radnor, but upon opening the
grave it waa found that the body Was part
ly s'tritied, and consequently very heavy.
A medical friend of the family, recognis
ing the fact that it vsould Is- a very diffi
cult and costly task tolransport the re
maiui in that condition, determined as far
as possible to remove t he pet rilled Mesh
i from the bones, and this was accordingly
! done. The bones were then carefully
- packed up and delivered to the .son, who
I was kept in ignorance of the operation, and
I he conveyed tho box containing the pre
I dons portions of his fat tier's body to his
j native county, where they were, interred
I with appropriate ceremonies.
A monument was erected iu ISofl over
I the grave by the Pennsylvania Society of
the Cincinnati. What remained of the
warrior was rein tarred at Fort Presqua
j Isle, and some years ago was discovered in
the same state of preservation as when first
exhumed, iu a box hearing his name. An
other memorial stone was raised in that,
place, and thus was commemorated the
fact that all that was mortal of ".Mad An

A Tour Debtor's llurd I'ute,
In a certain county iu the eastern part of
the state there isa case coming under the
poor debtor law. A man waa arrested on
execution for debt anil thrown into jail.
Ho was stubborn and refused to pay, so
the creditor kept him behind the bars, pay
ing lila board nt t'i a week. When six
months had expired the prisoner came to
the conclusion that he would disclose, but
in order to do tAis ho must, under the old
luw, which prevailed when lie wits arrested,
pay ail thecostsof disclosure and expenses.
Ho was unable to do this, afl he had no
funds, and the OonStqUGDOl was that he le
nialued in jail, where he has now been re
siding several years, bis board still being
