The bulk of the trading was on the small lot plan. In several instances modest strength was shown but the demand for' stocks was not of a character to induce the belief that the public was anxious to get , into the market on a broad basis.

The preferred began with a trade at SS, an advance of Vz over the final price Thursday, and later in the forenoon- advanced to 59.

Not much was done in Crucible preferred in the afternoon, but it maintained the advance and the final price was 53, a net gain of a point for the session. One small trade was made In United States Steel common at 5i?8, a net gain of 34. , Several brokers evidently had a few orders in the Westinghouse issues, but trading in them early in the day was not Important. Two members of the group were traded in, both lightly, and they did net make any gain over the final prices of Thursday. Electric Seconds was dealt in to the extent of 242 shares in the morning at 42, the price made at the finish Thursday, and the bid at noon was a fraction higher than the one made at the close of the previous session.

One small trade was made in Air Brake late In the day at 114. the decline for the session being . The market in brewing stocks was just twice as broad as It was at the previous session, two members being dealt in during tie forenoon as against one handled Thursday.

By' private wire to Henry Sproul & Co.: In "face of reactionary feeling at the close stocks seemed to be well bought on the decline and the greatest losses were not enough to create uneasiness. From a bullish point of lew our position remains unchanged and we do not hesitate to advise the purchase of good stocKs on further weak spots. To Robinson Bros.: The afternoon market was reactionary throughout, led by a decline of In Steel common, the selling being generally credited to profit-taking. The notablv strong features were Cotton Oil National Lead and North American, the latter rising 4 points, one-half of wich was lost in the late trading. Rv private wire to Cht'.ds & Chllds: The strensth In Steel was due to rumors that the tariff revision would not be drastic. Th'.c also had a good effect on othr stocks notablv Sugar, which advanced over 4 points." We still, however, look for a trading market for the time bemg, and although prices may go a little higher we would not climb for stocks, but would await reactions on which to buy, taking profits on bulges. By private wire to Scully. Painter Beech: The market asrain demonstrated toAdav its highly professional character. Toward noon it looked as if we might really be in for quite a rise, as under the leadership of the United States Steel storks evervthins: was strong and fairly active. The" buying power, however. wis apparently noon exhausted and in the afternoon prices settled back in the same old uninteresting way. MilVr & Co.: The bank statement forecast is a very satisfactory one, again calling attention to the satisfactory position of the money market to which, after all. much attention should be given. By private wire to Henry Sproul & Co.: Th wheat market has again been a narrow, choppv affair, the break that was considered due as a result of the bearish foreign news Is not materializing. Casn demand slow, but inquiry good and sample tr:ees are high in all directions, while receipts continue light. Outlook for scalp-in e mark"t unless shorts gt too anxious and boost values in their effarts to cover. Metal Market. NEW YORK, Jan. 22.

A Few Choice Brotherly Love Stories Which May Be True and Which May Not, "Boys sometimes annoy their little sisters and sometimes they vex and and annoy their big sisters." said the Green Goods Man. as he made a noise like a horse-fiddle. , j "I know a boy that poked the eyes lout of hia little sister and filled the Moles wdth hot parched corn, which vexed her very much. The little boy thought it was funny, but the sister failed to see he joke. Some girls are very stupid. "In sister's eye Bill poked a nail. Which, when pulled out, it broke; While , sister laughed till she was pale, But couldn't see the joke. "It is simply remarkable what sisters will stand from brothers, that is, some sisters. There are some sisters that won't take a thing, not even money. There are sisters that imagine their brothers are real good, while other girls think they are a bad lot.

Trade continues to move along slowly. There may be some improvement in a few departments but the Increased volume of trade is not yet large enough to attract attention. Many jobbing concerns feel they are doing well if they make expenses. The call for dry goods is fair but not of an exciting character. Retailers take moderately ot faorics that come into use at this period of the year, but are not taking freely for spring distribution. The ireneral conditions of the grocery, hardware and lumber trades have not changed in any material sense lately. The demand for apples continues good. Fancy stocks are in request and prices on best grades are maintained. The early part of the week considerable Inferior stock was dumped on the market which served to caune an easy tone on lower grades. Box apples from coast States are in .steady call. Strawberries are gradually working to a lower level and cranberries are a drag at a sharp reduction from the prices asked a short time since. Cabbage isiin modest demand, buyers being a little shy because of the high prices in force. Onions are much higher than they were a few weeks ago, owing to moderate supplies. New Southern stuff Is In light demand and dealers are willing to make concefsions rather than have a buyer pass them up. ter ' ) Swiss Impd 2529e earn. tubs.34:ff34Vic( Roquefort 35c 1. prints ..-35-'f 33!Cj Domestic Swiss. ...lc BUTTE K, EU(i A.1 v.ricr.o& Butter, ..25S29o cream 3.-M3 An fic do! country ...IMfiZlc N.

Hivermen are annoyed by the sand lumps in the Ohio," particularly at Duff Har, near Davis Island dam, caused by sand-diggers. Navigation has been affected by these obstructions and yesterday the steamer Diamond was put to work scraping- them. Compleinta have been registered against this practice to the United States engineer. Rivermen claim it is a violation of the Itw, and steps may be taken to compel the crews of sand-diggers to prevent such obstructions in the channels. These obstructions are caused, it Is claimed, by the depositing of gravel and other refuse substances from the sand-diggers. The Kxporter is held up at Shotrsetown and the Valiant and Charlie Brown at Ketvickley. They will be three of the ninny torvboats 1 which will leave with coal on the next rise.
