Great Praise for the Showiof Made by
the Ceatarys ia Responding to
tbe Test Alarm.
Congratulations are on all sides pour
ing in upon the members of the Century
Hose company for the brilliant feat
performed Thursday night In respond
ing to the test alarm from box 24 at
the city hall. To make the trip in ex
actly three minutes ia something that
deservea credit, whether the company
was Informed before hand or not. The
Century's were not forewarned, that la
a fact which can be relied upon. Tiie
teum were in their stalls when the
alarm sounded. Perhaps, faster time
was made than Is usually made, but
that Is uccounted for by this fact, tiiat
it isn't every day u second alarm is
sent in five minutes after the first alarm
from a box in the heart of the city.
The distance from the Ceiilu y'g quar
ters to the corner of Washington ave
nue and Mulberry street along the
route the wagon went Thursday night
is about 1.5VU feet less than a mile. The
route was over the Plttston avenue
bridge to Jefferson avenue, to Mulberry
street, to Washington avenue. A honj
that can travel u mile In three min
utes over the ordinary city or country
roud hitched to a buggy, will go so
fust that the driver will be upt at the
end of his Journey to rind a spoke brok
en or a bolt out of one of Ills wheels.
Then imtiglue what It Is to haul a fire
wagon loaded with I10R", ultogetheV
weleliluE about L'.SiUO pounds, and go

Wall at reel Heview.
New York. July 24.-Stocks ruled weak
today, but except in a few Instances the
pressure to sell was not pronounced. For
that matter the bulk of the stocks sold
according to good Judges of the market
was for professional account. Even lon
don speculators were inclined to reduce
their lines or American securities and
these liquidations account in some degree
for the weakness here. The dominant In
fluences, however, was the financial situa
tion. Mr. Whitney's Interview had a ten
der.cy to unsettle matters, as the ex-sevre.
tary of the navy did not take a cheerful
view of the presidential race, especially
so far as the sound money advocates are
concerned. The talk about a third ticket
also had an unfavorable effect, and the re
ports that the Populists would endorse the
candidacy of Mr. Bryan added to the
bear ranks. The street seemed to ignore
the heavy deposits of gold for the day,
about ll.SOO.OUO. which brings the total
for three days up to $17.245,uu. The fact
that there will be no gold shipments to Eu
rope tomorrow! owing to the recent agiee
merit by the foreign bankers, was also
passed by, so far as effect on stock prices
is concerned. The bears concentrated their
efforts on .Manhattan, and the stock was
forced down from S3 to W. Rvports
were current that the directors Intended
to cut dividends because of poor earnings,
damage suits and increased competition.
Regarding the alleged reduction In divi
dends. Insiders stated that a dividend had
Just been paid and that action on the next
dividend will not be tukeli for some time
to come. Other particularly weak Issues
were Sugar. Chicago Uas, the Grangers
and International. Sugar and Burling
ton and Qullicy fell about 2 per cent., and
the other prominent shares 't to IVb Per
cent. In the last half hour a firmer tone
prevailed and prices rallied per cent.
In the case of Manhattan, ial per cent.,
tiie remained or the list, the Industrials
and Grangers showing the greatest re
cuperative ability. Speculation closed
II rm In tone. Net chunges show decline
of '4al? per cent. Total sales were 184.347

A CHAPTER OK MONEY MAKING.
Sir: If a man takes a piece of steel
worth 15 cents and makes of it watch
springs worth 3100, that Is skill.
If he takes a piece of paper worth I
cents, and writes on it a poem that sells
for t. that Is genius.
If he takes a fann worth ti an acre,
and by his labor and knowledge puts It
In heart again and makes It worth t8V an
acre, that Is work.
If a man takes a hammer worth 80 cents,
and in a day's use of It earn ll.li, that's
hard work. ,
If a man buys a yearling at a trotting
sale for tlS that In Its three-year form
develops ability to make a mile at a
2.08 1-4 gait, that Is judgement.
If a man buys a silver mine he has never
seen, and (t makes him a millionaire,
It a man buys an article today for
II. SO and sells It tomorrow for tie, that'
But when a government takes S3 cents'
worth of sliver and coins it into a cart
wheel, and says legislatively that It I
loo cents, or a dollar, and pays It out as
such to Its creditors, that Is not finance,
but highway robbery. Nsw York Sun.

Aunt Rachel S;r:
I have been using your Peruvian Bitters
of late for malarial fever that I have not
been entirely rid of for the past two years
until now. I must say your BIHers beat
everything. 1 used It only six weeks and
began to improve the first week. 1 am
now well and hearty and feel young again,
even now In this very hot weather.
