Corn advanced, but again receded, with small exports and fairly large receipts. Cotton declined a sixteenth, but recovered. The visible stock of American here and abroad is 2,512,900 bales, against 2,582, 573 last year, and there is every reason to expect an increased yield. It was confidently expected that the settlement of tariff rates on textiles by the senate would improve the condition of textile manufactures. But there is scarcely any evidence of such a result as vet, the large sales of cotton being distinctly traceable to more seasonable weather and larger retail sales and to further concessions by sellers. The stock of print cloths at Fall Eiver and Boston is over a million* pieces, but the accumulation continues, The orders for fall are limited and staples are irregular in price. Wool is less active and rather weaker, with sales about equal to lialf a full consumption — 3,252,541 pounds, against 2,98U,800 for the 'same week last year and 5, 113,530 in 189S. For three weeks of June the sales have been 6,879, l?4 pounds against 16,t»33,e50 in 1892, •"' There is much disappointment that the partial trrmination of the coal strike does not promptly enlarge the demand for iron »nd steel products, which is evidently too narrow as yet to support such increase of production.

Wickes and received from him his final answer in the matter. It Was to the effect tht, the Pullman company absolutely, unqualifiedly. refused to, enter into any consideration whatever of the Pullman strike with the Railway Union. There the conference ended and the committee withdrew, returned to the convention hall, and reported results. Thereupon, and amid wild shouts of applause, the convention passed a motion indorsing the action of the committee and oflieially ordering tho boycott. The officers of the Pullman company profess to have no fear as to the result of such a movement as is threatened., but labor people are confident this action will compel the company to make terms with them.

"I declare!" exclaimed Kitty Mny- nnrd's. father, as ho examined Uio remnants of a oiico nice pair of slippers, "fit Hot. allow that dog to remain lu the house any 'longer. Vt is a sliamo to permit BO clostructlvc nn animal nrotilid the premises." "but, my dear," ventured Mrs. May- nnrd, "Kitty thinks the world ruid all of. tin! little dog, !it"l I'm siu'o that in a short timo ho. will lenm enough to lonvo things alone." "Thut may bo, but by tiio llmo )ie comes to his senses there won't bo anything left In tho hoiiso for him to ruin. To-tliiy il. is my slippers; yedtMlny it was my straw hat and your bonnet, and KO on down the list until 1 am really surprised that we have anything loft .but tho four bare walls. I toll yen, Knima. that, dog has tfot to go, and .go liu shall to-morrow, if T havo to isirry him fifty miles to got rid of him." Kitty Maynanl hoard nothing of this decision of ho.' father to take from hor the rollicking cocker spaniel sho called Prince, which was Hie joy of hor young heart. Sho was. sleeping the sound Hliwp of youth anil health. Tho next morning Mr. Maynard's decision had not boon altered, but, or. tho contrary, strengthened, when ho found that Prince had consumed all tho morning's milk. Kitty heard of hor pot: cat's fato with tears aud 'sobs of dismay. Sho begged for Prince with all the toart'ul eloquence, little girls can command, But her fa'ther remained firm and loft his wife to comfort, her as ho (tarried the mischievous spaniel away. Mr. Mtiynard had never had any ox- porionco at getting ild of dogs, and after ho left his liomc behind he thought earnestly of tho best means to adopt. Ho had at first de'-ermined to tie a. stone around the dog's nock and drop him in the river, but Avhcn ho looked into tho dog's honest eyes his heart; failed him. As ho was still trying to settle upon :i plan, lie spied a farmer's wagon, evidently returning- from market and bound for the country. "I)o you waul a dog?" he shouted .at the driver. The liorso was stopped and in a short time Prince was securely tied to the bed of the lumberiug wagon, bound for Fumier Smith's place, fifteen miles out of town. Mr. Maynnrd felt pretty badly that night as he sat! down to his dinner and was confronted by Kitty's tear-stained face, and his wife's speaking countenance that plainly told him she considered him a brute. At -that moment he would have given a nice little sum of money to have Prince back. The evening was a. most uncomfortable one. Kitty's sobs cunie from tho nursery, the evening papers were dull, Mrs. Maynard was as quiet as a mouse, and if the truth was told, Mr. Muy- nnrd missed his evening frolic with the' little bright-eyed spaniel. It. was not long after 10 o'clock wh<.n tho inmates of the Maynard ho .we were all in bed, wrapt in slumber. Some timo during the night Mr Maynard was awakened suddenly by a fearful crash in the hall. Ho \vas half dazed 'at first, :md only came to his senses when he heard tho Imrklug of a dog. Not: only did the barking continue, but at intervals the dog emitted canine shrieks and howls as if in groat distress. "Why, that's Prince," said Mrs. M;,y- nard, who by this time was awake. "Yes, and he is evidently trying to break /down, the house," returned her husband, as he clambered out of bed, Quickly donning his divsalng-gown and slippers the mail of the house went to the door. As lie opened it a few inches n great 'wave of sinoke and Prince rushed in. "The house is on .'ire!" exclaimed Mr. Mayjiard, Meanwhile Prince had bounded into the adjoining nursery, and on to tho bed, where ho quickly liud Kitty awake. Mr. Maynard ran to the window, and, throwing it up, cried "Fire!" with all his might. Then he returned, groping In- the rapidly thickening smoke, grasped his wife by the hand and fled to the nursery. Luckily there was a roar stairway leading from the nursery to the kitchen, and it was no. trouble to reach the ground, wlioro Kitty nestled in her father's arms and Prince danced for Joy. It didn't take the firemen veiy long to put tho lire out, and not a great deal of damage was done. The Maynard family was taken euro of by kind neighbors. It turned out that Prince had broken away from Farmer Smith and returned home. Ho had entered the house through a ventilator opening into the pantry and found the house in names. The wise little dog had made all tlio noise he could lo awaken the sleeping iunmtes, uud, fearing that his barks would not bring the n from dreamland, •lie had pulled over a flimsy clothes-rack that stood in the hall. Nothing was said about Prince for •several days. Finally Mrs. Mayna.rd said: "Are you going to send Prince away?" • Her husband did not answer in words, but he gave her a withering glauce. That night he returned .iomo svJUi u handsome sllvey coll;u' for Priuce, and as lie adjusted It around the proud aog's neck, lu» said: ^'Buuua, Jf anybody' oyor tftkss this d.og uway it wlU Have eg Ije nftt* lie me," Wfll A, Owen lojftcJn'ys stM'v. of in a jurg,«jKu.t' pf ^^\-M^^U^iSa^^uiA*f botti as regards size nn' looltl eft* \tt»tK in the field.

There was n goto nt oho ifnd o' the bank, nn' 'twas half-way opeii like. "On they comes after the dog, tho squire an' John. An' how it come about ho one knows; the dog might ha* been jealous, for there was nmtbef dog out with 'em, an' he wight ha.' been thihldn' about him. Anyway, instead o' dmwln' through ns Usual, he canter- fill through, jest as-if he'd been rnng- in 1 , '.'Up got the covey; they Was behind tjiat bank. Oyrns turned ro-.ind an' stopped dead si ill. 'Ho kuowed, poor feller, he'd made a blunder for once in his life, an' old John told me lie looked up nt htm real pitiful like. Before he could say a word, the squire swung his gun up to his shoulder, an* shot Cyrus dead, an' then, turnla' round to old John, he says to him quiet, very quiet, though his face was white with temper: " 'You broke that dog In, or tried to; now break me in another that will not make n. mistake.' "It. was quite enough for the old fel- lor, an' too much. Layln* the gun down, and taking the game bag fPoin bis shoulders, ho says: " 'Squire, I've been in your father's service an' yours for many years, nn' served ye faithful to the best o' my means an' ways, such as they are; but as long- as I live, I'll never break Tin- other dog for you.' "The squire looked at him for full a minute, and then he said, soft like: " '.lolm, take my gun, an' onrr,» It home. 1 shall shoot no rno.'o to-day. An' get Cyrus buried.' "An" then he walked away hasty like, as if he was glad to.get away from the place. The old feller said be kuowed he was sorry for what he done; but he novor mentioned Cyrus after that, nor John didn't to the squire neither." 'UGH, GOOD, 1 HIM HoiicHty Unimpaired. Oftentimes there is a temptaMofc to diverge slightly from the truth when it seems to do so would bo for our interest in a material way. But, putting aside tljo higher consideration of love for truth itself, and looking at it merely from the standpoint of material advantage, the truth, of tho old saying, "Honesty is the best policy," is being constantly demonstrated. The experience of the sailor of whom the Baltimore Sun tells the following, is one of these demonstrations. A sailor who desired to re-enlist in the service of the navy for a cruise was rejected for defective eyesight by tho examining board. He had made a good record, and naval academy officers, including the surgeons who had been compelled to make an unfavorable report in his case, interested themselves in his behalf. He finally went to Washington, and, arniod with the recommendations from the naval academy, urged his claims before the surgeon general. Do you -see the" .'Washington njbnn- ment, fro.-n that window?" asked the official.. "Yes, sir," promptly replied the sailor. To test his honesty as well as his eyesight, another question was propound-' (Ml. "Seo that sparrow on the top t)t the monument?'' Without hesitation the sailor replied, "No, sir." "Neither do T," added the chief examining officer. "Your eyesight seems to be good enough,'and your honesty Is evidently unimpaired. 1 shall at once order your reinstatement in the navy" \Vln|;H Ity and Hy, What a dreary place this world would often be, had we not another world to look forward to! The hope, the certainty, of a. better and higher existence, where -the jnnrmities of this life should no more be* enables us with a cheerful spirit to bear tho trials and troubles that fall to our lot here. It was this hope that upheld the cripple boy of whom the Homo A'isitor tolls the following, and gave beauty to a life that, in the eyes of the world, was hard and cheerless. "Walter," said a gentleman on a ferryboat, to a poor, ilielpless cripple, "how is it, when, you cannot walk, that your shoos got worn?" A blush came over the poor boy's pale face, but, after hesitating a moment, lie said: "My mother has younger children, sir; and while sho 'is out washing I amuse them by creeping about -on the floor and playing." "Poor boy!" said a lady standing near, not loud enough, as -she thought, to lie overheard. "What u life to load! What has lie in all the future to look forward to?" The tears started in his eye, and the bright smile that chased it away 4 showed that he did hear her. As sho passed by him to sto-p on shorn, ho said in a low voice; but with a smile: K ! am looking forward .to having wings some "day, lady," And that was the secret of his content and elicerlness. JT'Vesh Air Prohibited, Many are the stories told of the great reference in wliich the Scotch people hold the Sabbath. Tlunr methods of showing thoU'j reverence, however, are sometimes so remarkable as to draw a smile from others, who may nevertheless be reasonably strict observers of the "day of rest," A minister of tho lilrk told an American clergyman wha was traveling in Scotland that on euo oceaulou he passed" a Sunday in a, little county lnn,.$nd. as jtbe tiny "aripA 1 of the Jiouse WAS 6x- owdjngly eloao ipd, stuffy, an.d fye d,ay was wavni, lie started £9 open one of/ tjie \vj,wd,(^¥8.-,. t i "Wlliit are you about, inou?"' in, qujrgfl tfce jawtiudy, wlttj a)m$ &evo>- lty,-OJiterln.g ^ room.

Wind-in-the-Face explored , San Francisco with his family trailing half a block behind him. One ' day he discovered the big Catholie- church on Steiner street. The great building fascinated hint and. the rod family camped on the broad granite,steps all one Sunday. Tho-peoplo.-going in and coming out. of tho church had to step circuro- & spcctly for fear of treading- on a red •' baby, but Wind-iu-tho-Face never moved. Ho was thinking, a solemn proceeding with him, and Mrs. Wind-in-the-Face helped him think by her silence. Ho had been converted on the reservation, and so- knew something of tho big wigwam. After a while he went inside. The squaw and papooses remained on the steps outside until the mass was over and their lord reappeared. The, chief went again to the church. It- happened that a wedding was in progress, and this made him think some more. It occurred to him for the first time that .when he gave two- ponies and a plug of army tobacco to the father of his bride for her he should have had some more elaborate ceremony than merely bringing her to his topee and beating hor with a wagon spoke. , He made up his mind that he would have the ceremony anyhow, evon if it was late. So one evening- Chief Wind-in-tho-Face, with new: stripes painted across his nose, led his family again to the church. Mr. Dobt. who runs tho Arizona village where the Indians belong, -acted as guide and master of ceremonies. To^ make it more binding- the red chief brought, his brother-in-law and his family and nine other Indians. All of them wore the brightest colored garments and all sat on the steps while the white man went inside to- SQO if the good father was ready to make them really man and wife. The chief removed,his battered stovepipe hat and the others followed his reverent lead. On the word of command they proceeded up the steps and into tho church, after which they reverently kissed the father's hand, even to the •little children. The bride and bridegroom were^,,, v then:taken into the vestry to hear a" rehearsal, while the visitors were kept amused by the criticisms of the young ones, who seemed to think it. was a picnic. One little boy would put his hat on, but he was severely reprimanded by his brother—the reprimand was delivered with his closed fist—when ho became meek until his father and inosher came out aud knelt before tho altar for the sacred service. Then the boy < rushed from the pew and squeezed A, between his kneeling parents. Theff*' parents spoke to him in-Spanish, and as tho service proceeded they ' clasped hands and they were married. "Ugh, good," remarked Wind-in- the-Face, as he herded his flook and, drove them ahead of him. put of the i church. ' • " A Spring That Turns Things to Stone. The local geologists of Lawrence county, Pennsylvania, say that there J is a spring in Beaver township, in. that county, which has wonderful lapidescont qualities, its petrifying- ,' powers being sufficient to transform moss, sticks, leaves .and even animal ' flesh into solid stone in a surprisingly brief period. This rill'of wonderful water is located on the farm of one W. 8.

At that time therq ' was a stone lying near where the ' spring bursts forth that was not much larger than a common wooden water bucket.
