New. Tork, May 8. So far as the
transactions are concerned, this was
the banner day at the stock exchanse,
over 422,000 shares of stock and 14,743,-
000 bonds havlnB been traded In. Sum

not display the reslHtancy which has
been Its chief characteristic of late. In
fact there was a prencral disposition on
the part of traders, who turned bullish
after tho adjournment of congress nnd
loadvd up with Mb lines of various
stocks, to turn paper profits Into cash,
and the enormous realization from this
sourve had a tendency at times to offset
tho buying for Europe and by local
commission houses. Tho buying for
Kurope today was again heavy, the for.

The Texas Pacific Issues appeared to
be In best demand, and a big block of
the bonds were tliken for London. The
foreign purchases are beginning to ex
ert an Influence on sterling exchange,
and late In the day demand bills sold

share speculation was the Increased de

A Professional Nurse Afflicted with
Itright's IHbcoso of tho Kidneys
1 Inds a Cure. ,
(From the liufTalo News.)
Mrs. A. E. Taylor has resided In Buffalo
for over forty years, her address Is 250
Herkimer avenue; as a professional nurse
she has nursed back to health many a suf
ferer. Disease In all its varied forms )ve
become-as familiar to her as to the regu
lar practitioner. Her occupation Is one
that taxes the strongest constitution, but
the fatigue of long watching and nurs
ing at last brought her to a bed of sick
ness. Mrs. Taylor speaks of her com
plaint and cure- as follows: "After being
confined to my bed for some time my dis
ease assumed such a serious acpect that a
doctor was called In. He pronounced my
ailment IlrlRht's disease of the kidneys In
the third decree and a very bad case. My
limbs swelled up so that I could not walk
across the floor, or, Indeed, help myself In
any way. My face bloatod up and my eyes
swelled so that the sight was badly Im
paired. This condition continued for near
ly two months without any marked im
provement from tho doctor's treatment.
I have taken quarts of buchu and Juniper.
1 tried battery treatment, but nil with
out "any lasting benefit until I felt like
finally giving up In despair. Hearing of
Doan's Kidney Pills I gave them a trial,
and after taking three boxes I was able
to get up without assistance and walk,
something I had not done m months. 1
continued steadily to improvo wlU their
use. The swelling In my leg left, the color
relumed to my face, changing from a
chalky color to a healthy bloom. I now
consider myself entirely cured and I shall
never . rest .praising the little pill that
"Doan's Kidney Pills are certa'nly a
surprising discovery for kidney ailments.
I shall be glad to. tell anyone of the won
derful cure they'rierformed on me."

In the anthracite coal trade that a

his company Is concerned. President
Sloan, of the Delaware and Lackawan

Manufacturers say that the booming
of business Is beginning to be an ob
stacle to Improvement. This is due
partly to the fact that advances In raw
materials have been relatively greater
than advances In finished products, re
ducing the narrow margin of profits
still further. ' Added to this, operatives
have been quick to demand Increase In
wages. In some Instances It has been
granted, but In 'others manufacturers
threaten to close their works because
of Inability to get out even, with higher
cost for materials and higher cost of
labor on one hand and only a slight ad
vance In finished goods on the other.
This situation applies to a good many
woolen mills, some cotton mills and
some of the coal and Iron works.

at the armory on Thursday night.

The Tribune correspondent has of late
been approached by a number of peo
ple In Montrose who have accused him
of sending news to the paper he repre
sents. It Is usually considered by a
conscientious reporter unlust to his na
per, Its readers and himself if he doe's
not endeavor to the best of his ability
give an impartial, full and correct ac-
count of all the news he can. The Idea
of suppressing unpleasant news is
prevalent In some localities; perhaps
this has been the past custom in Mont
rose. In a delicate manner The Tribune
man wishes It understood that the news
will prevail pleasant or otherwise.
Perhaps It's because The Tribune prints
the news that It has so Increased Its
circulation here. Who knows?

of her recovery had been abandoned
she was taken to Dr. Smith, at No. 312
