THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 19, 1896.
The Son? Journal speaks as follows
of the great Dutch pianist, Martlnus
Sievvking, whom It terms the "Jlephts
to of the piano:"
"Let us take a good look at Sieve
king, that we may discover his Me
phlstophellan characteristics: Six feet
tall, broad-shouldered, erect; promi
nent cheek bones; thin lips; a chin
that has "determination and tenacity"
written in its lines; a slight mustache
of brown; clear, searching, gray-blue
eyes; a high Intellectual forehead; very
dark hair that stands out from the
head in picturesque unkemptness;
great muscular hands that look as If
they could crush anything that they
envelop In their grasp. That is not the
picture of a Mephlsto, Is it?
"Wait; we will converse with him.
Perhaps his speech will betray him.
Why, he does not talk like a cynic. His
utterances are those of a young man
of healthy mind, full of honest ambi
tion and hopeful for success.
"Stop a bit! He Is seated at the
piano now, and Is going to play.
A great technic! And what a tone!
Those Iron fingers of his can caress as
well as crush, you perceive. A bril
liant octave passage, that. Heavens!
He is playing tenths as brilliantly as
he did octaves! Bravo! That sweep
ing climax was irresistible! It was
electrifying! Such fire! Such an over
whelming bigness of tone! Is not that
"We have discovered our Mephlsto.
It is Mephlsto, the sorcerer, the master
of electric forces, however not Satan,
"Your hand, Mr. Sleveklng! You're
not a bad sort of devil!"
Mr. Reeve Jones' fourth recital will be
given at his studio at 302 Adams avenue
on Monday afternoon. On this occasion
Mr. Jones will be assisted by Mrs. Geo.
du B. Dimmick, soprano, and Miss Flor
ence Richmond accompanist.
Miss Carolyne V. Dorsey, the elocu
tionist, is also a musician, and com
bines both music and Delsarte In her
teaching, which doubtless accounts for
her remarkable success as an instruc
tor. The Sleveklng concert will take place
at the Prothlngham on Tuesday even
ing next, Dec. 22.

At a meeting of the Mineral Water
company last Thursday, prices were nx
ed for the different styles of packages.
The main spring Is now flowing eleven
hundred barrels every twenty-four
hours. Public access to the water will
be stopped toduy, and a charge of 5
cents per gallon or $1.00 per barrel will
be charged at the spring. There Is
now some talk by the stockholders of
erecting a sanlturlum at the springs.
and it is not an impossibility of such
au Institution for invalids be erected
in the future. The labels for the bot
tles was decided upoii Thursday, and
they will be a lithograph with a pluin
white back-ground, and will read "Hast
Mountain Llthla Wuter," with the com
pany's name appearing at the bottom.
The center of the label is taken up with
the analysis of the water.
Before Squire Uurdiner last Thursday

number, (52) which drew the "Reglna"
music box at Heller's pharmacy.
Abel Gardner and Ben Goodwin re
turned last Wednesday from Canada
with a carload of Canadian lambs for
Mr. Gardner's farm. Without a doubt
they were the finest sheep ever brought
to this town, as their average weight
was 114 pounds each. Ben says it is a
great country over there, and while-
passing Suspension bridge at Nlagra
Falls his attention was drawn to the
steamboat, "Maid of the Mist," .(that
plies below the falls during the summer
months), and he was much Interested
In It, and asked an old farmer on the
train what it was made of, and the
reuben at once told ItAvaa "Maid of the
Mist." Ben thinks the farmers up there
are entirely too gay.

MARKETS AND STOCKS
Wall Street Review.
New York, Dec. 18. The day opened
quietly enough in Wall street, but before
the end of the session It proved to b one
of the most eventful at the Stock Ex
change for a long time past. The market
started off without any special activity,
but weak. An advance In the posted rates
of sterling exchange and talk of shipments
of from r-'.ow.uuo to $3.UtN.uuU gold to Ger
many by the steamers sailing on Tuesday.
After a moderate decline the usual lally
ensued, but operators regarded it as slg
nllkant that a prominent brokerage con
cern with close Washington connection
promptly supplied all bids. The reason
for this was made apparent later when
the news came from the capltol that the
senate commute on foreign relations had
decided to report favorably the Cainoron
resolution to recognise the Independence
of Cuba. It did not take long for the
street to reach a conclusion as to the Im
portance of this action and the dullness
was almost immediately supplanted by
active and excited dealings at steuclily de
clining prices. Komid amounts of stocks
were offered for local account and later
orders to sell in considerable number were
received by telegraph from Philadelphia,
Boston, Chicago and elsewhere, and severe
losses were sustained by the leading
stocks. The execution of stop orders ac
celerated the downward movement which
was equal to ',Hti4 per cent. Several at
tempts were inuito to rally the market,
but each recovery was met with a Hood
of offerings, and the result was ai the
close many stocks were at lowest point
of the day. The only marked rilly was
In Sugar, Reading, General Electric and
Tennessee Coal and Iron, which closed la
' per cent, above the lowest. Total sales
were 343.000 share.
