The most obtrusive o! them, the speculative advimcu in cotton ana in stocks, is the least reliable, nor call either of these bo said to reflect actual Improvement In business conditions.

Cotton does not rise because there IM moro demand for (foods, but there Is more demand for cood.s because cotton Is dearer.

"Toe volume of business through clearing houses gains a little, being H.I per cent, larger than last year, for the week, but 211 percent less than In 1891 Most of the Increase Is at New York and here and elsewhere Is partly due to active speculation.
