Speculation has had very little to do, thus far. with advancing it is questionable if we have ever witnessed such a wide and continuous upward movement in values relatively free from speculation, as has been experienced during the last five or years.

The question is. will the present wave of prosperity culminate in a speculative outbreak, or will it recede in a quiet and orderly fashion? The latter course is to be desired; but it will te all previous' experiences if we escape dangerous speculative excesses.

Here there was some little selling pressure early, mainly from pit selling short wheat. The market rallied from this and closed fairly firm.

There is no change in the general situation. Primary receipts are about the only bearish fact. These are offset by good export and moderate world's stocks. The statistical position is such that a continued large foreign demand seems probable and the extensive feeding of wheat to stock will undoubtedly use up coneiderable of our wheat.

Under these circumstances, the best plan for an investor 13 to give more than usual attention to the history of corporations whose securities are I quoted in the market. Those which have i stood well in bad times, those which are ably managed, and particularly those which make a fair statement -of operations, are the onfs which present the minimum risk. Another point to consider Is the element of competition. AVe can best illustrate our meaning by citing a case within our personal knowledge, having had some in the iron and steel business. It is more difficult to establish competition in the manufacture of tool steei than cf any other product not protected by patents, and therefore Crucible Steel, for instance, is freer from competition than other iron and steel companies.

It is a comparatively easy-thing to get the capital 10 build a crucible steel plant, but it Is one of the most difficult things to induce a consumer to buy an untried quality of steel. As to speculative securities, the trader takes his chances, and as a rule does not inquire too closely into the intrinsic value, knowing that manipulation has much to do with establishing market values. We have an idea that there will be considerable manipulation in the market for Philadelphia company common which promises to become an active feature. Henry Clews says: "While conditions less favorable than a year ago, and there are weak points that will bear watching, yet the situation at the moment seems more favorable to an upward than a downward movement. Stocks are still highly concentrated In strong hands, and holders are not willing sellers at present level.

No doubt the strongest incentive to operations for higher prices Is the prevalance of general prosperity. From nearly all sections of the country come reports of continued good business conditions. Even in the drouth stricken districts business is better than exnected owing to other offsets, and no complaints are forthcoming-. Bank clearings are phe nomenally neavy. having for several weeks exceeded last year heavy totals I hv 10 to 20 per cent and over.

Railroads are often overburaened with traffic, and earnings continue to show gains of 10 to 15 per cent over the handsome gains of last year. On almost everv side there are the most positive evidences of 'great industrial activity, and as vet there are no important signs of cessation. Good judges expect the boom In Iron to -on- tinue for some months to come, and any iwreiuu irnni present nign ana profitable prices would simply bring in a new lot of orders that would keep both new and old capacity fully employed.

"Would it be possible for me to invent some simple attachment by which the cheery but piercing notes of the early-crowing chanticleer could be prevented without injury to the bird?" This was the question that Eward P.

Howard of Brockton, asked himself not long ago. He was confined to his home at the time with an attack of the grip, and the dulcet tone of the pet bantams belonging to his son were not conducive to the enjoyments of the needful "beauty sleep." Now," Brockton is home of inventors not only of shoe machinery, but of many other "Yankee notions for was it not in the Shoe City that a wise and thoughtful married man invented the anti-snoring machine? This boon to heads of families was an arrangement of steel springs nnd padded clamps, by means of which the relaxation of the jaws so necessary to the well-rounded snore was prevented automatically. It was so planned that the aetbecthc jaws were opened the, tighter, the- machlTfls-TrTrad-jtljus the Fjwrfe was cut off5efore Its effort on the part of the wearer. Mr. Howard remembered the'iTuccess of this anti-snoring device, which, 'by the way, was successfully patented, and he eet out to conquer the crowing of the troublesome roosters in a similar manner.

The bantams upon which the first experiments were made were not the only feathered bipeds in the immediate vicinity, for his residence on. West Elm street, is in the heart of a beautiful residential and he dated to hope that were the effort successful' at home, he might persuade som'e of his neighbors to try the effect -of the "antl-crower" upon several lusty songsters of the Plymouth Rock variety. With copper wires, pliers and'a' stout heart Mr. Howard essayed the he had chosen. There was no danger' of catching ahy contagious disease from tbe bite of the little things, for, as ho told a Journal man, "the bantams were as tame as kittens." Experiment after experiment was made until the proper shaped yoke of bright new wirv had been properly fitted to the roosters' bills.

But let Mr. Howard describe the apparatus in his own words. The device is fastened about the bill of chanticleer after he has gone to roost by a simple clasp and does not interfore In any way with his circulation or digestion. Mr. Rooster dozes comfortably until perhaps about 1:30 a when he awakes and decides to arouse the neighborhood.

He arises from his perch, throws his head back, and opens his mouth to its full extent. "Here is where the fine work of the invention comes in, as it gently but firmly closes the open mouth, and Mr. R. subsides with a gasp of astonishment, to bo similarly 'trun down at each attempt to give bis sleep-destroying call. ''It was my fond hope," continued Mr.

Buys jfifalue 11 is the foreign situation. The European 1 markets are in an exceedingly sensitive state o'ing to well understood causes, and with another British loan In pros- 1 tect American stocks are quite likely to be sold for shipment to the United Mates in an advancing market. This, of --course, would not be favorable 'to tbe foreign exchanges. The cotton movement, how- ever, has been backward for a period, and I Increased exports of this staple would tend to discourage gold shipments. The local money market is not entirely free of danger, bank reserves being low and the return of currency from the- South being tardy, owing to the backward movement of the cotton crop.

Some relict I will be artorded by Secretary Gage's of- fer to buy bonds and by the Increase of money In circulation: but the treasury is still a disturbing feature, locking tip funds collected hy excessive taxation. Congress seems likely to do little 'during the corn-In-' session: It could at least earn the good will of all parties by cutting off superfluous taxes. K. A O. Randolph to Honry Sproul A Co.

The traction, however, were the No news developed to account for thoir rise, hut theie has been a considerable abort interest in thm. which rave evidence of coveing largely. It is said, however, that a new and important interest will be given, a tepresentatlon In the Manhattan directory and strength which was also- shown by Metropolitan may possible have a bearing on this. The meeting of Manhattan, it should be noted, will be held on Wednesday.

An unfavorable bank statement was looked for, but when It came out it was poorer than harl even been anticipated. This, however, was not reflected in the market. There -was little actual news, but one of the newspapers states en what it claims to be high authority, that the Northern Pacific terms have been submitted to and approved by the Union Pacific board. It Is also inferred that a meeting of the Northern Pacific directors next week will result in aomethiiig of importance In the same connection. Atchison officials deny that the company has made any alliance whatever with the Pennsylvania.

Trede reports for tho week are favorable, showing activity and prosperity In mot lines of business throughout the country. There is an Interesting article in the Financial Chronicle this week which deals with the copper situation and contains figures and conclusions which point to a reduction In the selling price of the metal. It Is. in fuet, reported that unofficial cuts are being made by Ihe Amalgamated and its tepresentativea. By private .1.

L. T. Speer Co. As we have predicted for a number of weeks past, the market has at last resumed Its upward course. From extreme dullness and apathy, thourh within a strong undertone preceding election, stocks became strong and advanced almost at a houndj last Wednesday morning.

and the strength has been well maintained throughout the week. Evidences of this renewed movement have been apparent to us for a long time past, as it was well known that the big men were exceedingly long of stocks, many of which were accumulated at hieh prices, and it was necessary for them-, to make a market in order to liquidate some of their holdings. How far and to what extent this rise may run, it Is Impossible to say. but nt the moment existing conditions would decidedly point to continued buoyancy. Howard, "to rear in time a breed of non-crowing fowl, since aside from the great boon to humanity -which a breed of noiseless fowl would be, the financial side would certainly be worth considering as fraught with great- possibilities.

It is well known that the exertion of crowing causes the neck of the ordinary fowl to become lean, tough and stringy, while with the non-crowing fowl the neck should become fat, tender and juicy, thus changing what has been considered a 'piece de resistance' to what gourmands would term a 'bonne Unfortunately, the secreta did not carry out the fond hopes of the inventor, for, the roosters' immediately boycotted the invention and sought relief from the clutches of the muzzles in ever? manner known to birddom. Such grand and lofty tumbling, such contortion. acts in fowlyard, and such gymnastics as those poor fowls indulged in. would have put to shame, a high-salaried artist of the "greatest shoy-ort' earth. Indeed, the antics of a pet dog with his teeth stuck together, with molasses taffy would be Delsarte; as compared with the frantic sCfatchings and headlong plunge of those two bifntams, and so.

lclng a kind-hearted man, Mr. Howard released the victims of his ingenuity, and sorrowfully relinquished all idea of a niche in the American gallery of national benefactors. Vlt was indeed a sad blow to me," said Mr. Howard, "but what could I do? I had to take my fowls as I found them. If I could obtain a breed of domesticated that could be trained to the wearing of my asti-erower, in time, no doubt, by proper breeding.

I could develop a race of crowless bantams, which as blooded fowls. would, be of the. blue ribbon Despita his disappointment at the outcome of his experiments Mr. Howard heartily subscribed to the sentiments of the editorial writer who recently said: "Sancho Panza. invoked blessings on him who first invented sleep, and the man who compels the myriad roosters of this poultry-loving land to silence will do more: to relieve the miserv of noise-worried, nerve-racked mankind than any other since Dr.

Kxpeetaticns that some light would bo thrown on the Northern Pacific situation over Sunday played some part in shaping sentiment, and from the preliminary estimates, it was believed that the bank statement would make a fairly "strong showing.

Builders find it comparatively easy to sell houses this season. In ordinary times they are compelled to carry them for months. The urgency of the demand is such that many houses are sold long in advance of completion. Several instances of this kind occurred last week, and were noted In The Press. There is in this every encouragement for builders.

They do not have to wait long fer their money. Lot selling was again an Interesting feature. Ail, the plans on tHe market drew like' star penormers or a football game, with the of a visible diminution of the supply. It is intportanf to note that buyers are not speculators, but people who wiil build as as- tbev can make arrangements. They are factors in the upbuilding of a Greater Plttsburgand are doing all they can to help it along.

Hu phries Miller on the local market It la very much to us as though we were oing to have what is called a traders' -arket for some time to come. While the average of prices is below the highest of the year. It is considerably above the Jow point at which the noteworthy movement began which immediately followed the national elections last year. One may as well recognize this fact when attempting to forecast movements.

Busi-nfss may or may not have reached the lioodtide, and the hesitation noted in some lines may or may not mark the begin 1 ning of the ebb; but one cannot talk so confidently now of the probability of increased dividends, and with a few exceptions, so far as the local situation is concerned, there are no important deals pending which hold out promise of better things for the general stockholder. Under these circumstances advances in market values are likely to be more the result of variations in the demand for investment than of the operations of bull cliques. Our market never enjoyed the benefit of a general short interest, and therefore is not invitinc for bear operations, except of a spasmodic kind: but it will be influenced by such operations in Wall street. The advent of a session of congress is-usually the signal for unsettling legislation, or attempts at the game, and while the country has had a comparatively long rest from tariff agitation. TRIUMPHAL ARCHES.

Some Modern Instances of These Ancient Monomenta. There is little to recommend the generally received idea that the trlumphat arch from a fashion of decorating the gate of a city against the return of a conquerer, although In its simplest form the arch does appear to symbolize a door or portion of a house which has been decorated in one way or another by the people at home, in order to testify their joy at the return of some one who nas given them reason to be proud of him. the triumphal arcn appeals to have started independency ot city gatherings It was a symbol Jn itself, whether a crude structure of two posts and a cross-bar, or the veiy elaborate marble buildingserected at Rome to commemorate victories and at the same time form a monument to ame nifcmter of the imperial family. Naturally enqigh, the specimens that are extant Beldjsrg to the latter class, tbe-TeTroitt-edLuring-ly of stone; but. their existence in siiea costly material testifies to many forerunners in perishable form which were erected in much the same manner as was tne temporary structure at New York in honor of the American Navy, built after the designs of Mr.

Charles R. Lamb, to add splendor to the greeting given by -New ork to Admiral liewey ana the sailors of the Philippine fleet Whethes the fashion of" triumphal arches was original in Rome we do not know. Since many other things in religion, ceremonial, angury and domestic life were borrowed from the Etruscans, perhaps the latter were the originatois, They were the exemplars to tne early Romans in matters of state and pomp as well as statecraft, until the latter btgan to wage wars outside of Italy and came in contact with the Greeks and Asiastics. The knowledge of the principal of the arch and perhaps the invention of the i true arch composed of wedge shaped blocks held in place by their own weigh 1 without the aid of mortar can be at- trlbuted to the Etruscans. Their tombs show the first beginning of vaults composed of stones overlapping and grad- I uany meeting at tne top.

They show the raise arcn carved out of such overlapping stones but, they also afford many instances of the perfect arch built of dry masonry which supports itself when the keystone Is put In place. The Great Sewer of Rome, which shows the perfection of arch and vault, is attributed to Tarquin, one of the Etruscan kings of early Rome. So that it i3 at least reasonable to suppose that the idea of an independent arch erected for no common useful purpose, but solely for pomp and as a symbol, came from the same people who taught' the Romans not only the aroi-4irjiiciple in architecture, "but their acOTCU-Jv tnd arts of civilization at? well. That there htild be no specimens of Etruscan arches of triumph extant is not surprising, since it is with difficulty that we can reconstruct an Etruscan city or villa. It is only through the tombs they left and some wall paintings, bronzes and picture-clad vases that we know them at all.

The highest point reached by the triumphal arch in the city where so far as we are sure it was a native, was the Arch of Trajan, which formed the entrance to the forum built by that emperor. There were seven others in the complex of forum, basilica and temple beside the famous column which still exists, and this wealtah of arches testifies, as well as any other feature, to the culmination of Rome's glory as the center of the western civilized world. The starting point- of the triumphal arch was Italy, and, so far as visible remains teach the city of Rome. All ages are agreed that the triumphal arch forms one of the most perfect monuments to embody the gratitude of a community for services rendered it in war. partly because of the symbolism alluded to, partly because of its ornamental quality in connection with the architecture of a city, and no less because of the variety of embellishment a structure of the kind can support without appearing to be overloaded.

It is not a thing for use, but for beauty. It is a huga frame statuary, a pedestal and background for many monuments. The very fact that it is not utilitarian sets it apart from architecture proper and places it. at the summit of decoration in is most-dig-nified and majestic culmination. There is no reason to beneve that trl-' nmphal arches are not appreciated in the United States.

The fact that the Naval Arch has failed to elicit a sum large enough to erect it permanently in the best material can be explained by conditions which existed at a certain date for that arch alone and rieed not obtain hereafter. This is the time for a renewed attempt to raise a fund to make it actual. Russia, Austria, Germany and Spain have no modern triumphal arches of any importance or neither has Great Britain; for the specimens at Berlin, Munich and London are singularly lacking in the proportions and artistic grace that seem inseparable from a monument of the A modern-arch exists in northern Italy in memory of Napoleon, which ha a style of its own. It seems reserved to America to take up the fashion where France left it in the century just gone by and use this element of city decoration with a freedom unknown eiiw the days of the Roman emperors.

It first belonged to what was kn ownas the Chartiers Svnod. It is worthy of note that at the time of its inception there were but four United Presbyterian synods la North America. At a meeting of the Chartiers presbytery, held at Buffalo. "November 4. 1801, a petition was presented from Pittsburg and Turtle Creek for preaching and for the moderation of a call.

Abraham Henderson, who accepted a call May 20, 1S47, but his pastorate was cut short bv death on July 27, 1R49. He was succeeded by Rev. H. W. Lee, who was in charge until 1S55.

Chance works very favoVably at times in the acquisition of wealth and property for those who least expect such luck.

A Versailles wineshop keeper, was at work in his cellar, when suddenly the ground gave way. and he fell into what was at first thought to be a but on lights being brought, the hole was -found to be an entrance to another wine cellar, containing some of the best vintages of France and Spain. The archaeologists of Versailles were aroused, and their examination proves that the mysterious subterranean wine cellar formed part of the-Pavilion dtt Rendezvous, which. Loifls" XV. annexed to the- Pac-au-Ceffs, about which so many queer are related bu the court chroniclers of the period.

The wine is said to have attracted con-noiseurs from all parts. A farmer in the neighborhood of Tavistock, England, was as lucky In another way. In repairing an old mahogany secretaire, knocked down to him at an auction, he discovered a secret drawer containing forty sovereigns, a gold enameled ring and a lot of securities of money, one of which was a certificate for over $500 three per cent consols. An old scrap of paper dated 17(10 led to the belief that 40 guineas had originally been placed three, but had been taken out in modern times and replaced py the sovereigns. A Hastings chemist was even more lucky than the Tavistock farmer, all owing to an accident that befell a lady's pet dog.

He treated the animal so suc-cessfulsa-triat when the grateful owner died, which happened not long afterwards, she left the lucky chemist a good many thousand pounds, which enabled him to change cares of business for the pleasures of retirement. Ixst money has often been regained by the accidental detection of the thelf. A French lady not long since frequently missed some of her in a "most unaccountable manner. One day her servant fell down stairs and was severely tinrt. On aoti; the good Samaritan and pouring oil Into her wounds the mistress was astonished to find all her lost jewels I In the pocket of her maid, who, it seems, had r11 the time been the culprit.

He won SOO pounds at the "green table'' at Monaco, and was only waiting for his laundress to bring his dozen shirts home before he should quit the place. The laundress, however, did not turn up at the appointed time, and to while away the hours he went into the Casino. Of course he played and not only lost all he had alreadv Won.

but 1.200 besides, which made him heartily wish he had left the shirts behind that cost him 100 pounds apiece for the washing. London Express. Horrible Symptoms.
