Neither official or unofficial statements as yet •preclude the hope that the loss may prove less serious, but at current prices 1,600,000,000 bushels would cost as much as 2,000,000,000 bushels would have Cost a fortnight ago. Wheat has risen 3J^ cents in the fortnight and 2J| during the week, although western receipts have been 5,228,128 bushels, against 3,102,094 last year. Atlantic exports are still about half as large as a year ago, 1,3!>9,480 bushels, against 2,734.784 last year. Pork.products are a little stronger, as is natural. Cjtton has twice risen and again declined a sixteenth, with increasing prospects of a very large ,vield, closing without change for the week. : The Iron and Steel Manufacturer brecords a great increase of nearly 30,- toOO tons in weekly output in July and ithe production is 115,300 tons weekly, about 11,000 tons less than in April, •but 8,000 tons more than a year ago, •when the prostration had nearly reache'd its worst Tho business in 'boots and shoes is strong and healthy, though conspicuously confined to medium and low priced articles, such as :75 cent shoes for men's and 55 to 00 cents for women's wear, but shipments from Boston have been, in two weeks, 166,003 cases, against 123,826 last year. , The sale of wool would have been larger, according to reports from the different markets, if there had been sufficient stocks available, butamount- ed to 7,503,100 pounds at tho three eastern markets, against 9,220,700 pounds two years ago. Country holders of wool do not at present appear anxious to let somebody else speculate on its price and are said to be keeping back supplies quite generally, although receipts at Chicago are 4,000,051 pounds for the week, against 1,127,09.4 for the same week last year. The failures for the five weeks ending Aug. 1 showed liabilities of $11,144,733, of which 55,6^6,594 were of manufacturing and $r>,220,247 of trading concerns.

Flames were first discovered in the fan house and soon spread to the other buildings. Such a steam pressure was raised in the boilers that the fan engine ran away, and tho bit; steel fan was burst into hundreds of pieces. One piece struck William Morris, who was standing 200 feet away and nearly cut one leg off, injuring his back and bad- ly.bruising his body.

AND MAIDS, Aug. 13.—A crisis itt tariff affairs was reached yesterday, both in the open senate and in the secret councils of the democratic tariff conferrees. When the conference closed it Was With the understanding that the meetings would be suspended for the present. No time was set for reassembling the conferees to-day or thereafter, and it wns s felt that no further sessions might be necessary in case the - senate acted favorably to-day on Senator Hill's resolution directing the senate conferrees to report the situation of affairs. What was of more importance was the feeling expressed by the house conferrees at the close of tho^ conference that in case Hill resolution nassed—and they believed it would— the conference would practically bo relieved of its work and it would remain only for the house to accept the senate bill as a lesser evil, as they believe, than tho McKinley law. These conclusions were reached after a day of intense excitement among tho tariff leaders. Tho day opened with the senate proposition for free sugar still pending before the conference. Chairman Wilson and his house associates were satisfied that the tender of free sugar was not made in good faith, and they had therefore requested the senate conferees to furnish a poll of the senate showing that if the proposition wero accepted it would be adopted by tho senate and the bill passed. The poll was considered as soon as the conferrees convened. It disclosed that in the event of the acceptance of the free sugar amendment the bill as a whole would be voted against by thirty-eight republicans and by Senators Kyle, Allen and Peffer (populists), and Caft'ery and Blanchard (democrats), a total of forty-three votes,- or sufficient to defeat the bill. This poll was made on the best judgment of the senate conferroes, Tho house accepted it as showing conclusively that the tender of the free sugar amendment, while made in good faith by the'scnato conferrees, was a means adopted by the conservatives for tho purpose of defeating tariff legislation and leaving tho McKinley law in force. At 2 o'clock tho conference, or a remnant of it, again assembled, with tho Hill resolution and the exciting debate thereon as tho main topic among them. Little or no attempt was made to take up items or schod- ules, tho talk being on the sensational general phases just developed and no progress was made up to 5 o'clock, when the conference separated without fixing a time for reassembling. Tho house conferrees no longer disguised the deep concern they felt over the future of the bill They had made a rough estimate of the vote on tho Hill resolution and they felt it would pass. Under these circumstances they said nothing could be done until the resolution was disposed of. If through some hopeful turn it was defeated, they said, it would leave the conference to proceed, and the contest would be carried on for the Wilson bill. If, however, it was passed, it would practically discontinue tho conference. In that event tho house men stated with satisfaction they would still be able to avert the complete failure of all the tariff legislation by having tho house agree to the senate bill. Senator Price, speaking of the situation said that for the first time he had to admit the chances for the bill are not good, but he believed tho parliamentary tangle would be straightened out so that the senate bill could be passed. "Brushing aside all parliamentary cobwebs," he said, "and using common sense, there is no reason why tho house can not at any time concur in tho senate amendments and pass the bill. If the sou- ate should now take some further action like indefinite postponement it might complicate aft'aira" . Chinese Treaty EarucHtly Debated.

I Was walking through a dry-goods Btofe the other day and I had my at/- tofttion drawn to a girl behind the counter. '''If she were a rich girl ia society," said tha friend who had taken mo purposely by her counter to show me tho pretty, brown-eyed creature, "she would be called beautiful. I looked across the pile of stationery toward tho girl, whoso thin, bloodless fingers were deftly showing off tho quality of various sorts of papers and envelopes to a customer. I wondered why she could only bo called beautiful in case she were rich and in society, and said as much. "If she were rich," said my friend dogmatically, "she would not be standing behind a counter with tho thermometer in tho nineties, trying to make up people's minds for them. If she wero in society, long before this hot time of the year she would have been swinging a tennis racket or pulling nn oar to a skiff gliding among crystal waters somewhero out of sight of that counter or any other. If she were rich she wouldn't havo .to stand on her poor little feet all day, and smile when she wanted to scream. You see all those charming exemp- ions would fill out tho hollows in her pretty cheeks and put a fresh luster into her lovely eyes. I. doubt if that jirl will got one week of vacation all •summer." "Oh, but they all do," I said .with conviction. "And their salary goes on." "Some of them can't afford to take t This girl cannot." All of which necessitated more questions, and elicited more pathetic facts. My brown-eyed shop girl could not leave home, not because her employers would not give her her month off, but because, at home, a stuffy little flat way oft' on the West side, was an, old man, her father, who tipples and smokes away tho money my brown- eyed girl earns through the long, hot days, who never loaves the little, stuffy fiat long enough for tho smell of tobacco and beer to evaporate, who was "born a gentleman," and doesn't know how to do anything. And when I heard my brown- eyed girl's story I became a convert to that East Indian custom which makes it entirely legal for children to drown or otherwise dispose of inconvenient ancestors. — Chicago Times. Happy HoiiHoholdg. The happiest households are those that do not let die out the sorttiment connected with various anniversaries. Although gift-giving 1 or recognition of such events in a suitable waj may be out of the question, owing to the straitened circumstances of thosa within the gates, there can yet bo a little air of festivity, when mother's or 'father's birthday comes around, or some wedding anniversary is to b"e celebrated. An extra dish, a little bunch of flowers, or some special music prepared for the occasion will show the kindly spirit and the loving i-emombranco that count far moro than the moneyed value of any gift. As tho children grow up if theso festivals arc encouraged they will have much to look forward to, and much more to remember in tho years to come, when they go out to do battle with the world and find that sentiment is crushed \inder foot and affection is regarded only as a side issue. Life is full of beauty if we only knew how to gather it into our bins and storehouses. There need not be great wealth nor worldly honor, but a loyal clinging together of parents and children, marked by happenings that havo a direct bearing* on each one's individual history, will join the circle closer together and make home life tho ideal thing that it ought to be, . Do not; we beseech you, plead that you are too busy or too seriously occupied with worldly affairs to waste time on such trivial matters as birthday parties and wedding celebrations. Such use of time is not a waste, and will prove among the sweetest memories of childhood and old ago long after tho little chain has been broken, und ono member after another gone to tho long rest.

Miss Bedford, principal of the New York cooking school, uses the following proportions in canning fruit: For apples, peaches, pears, blackberries and sweet cherries, one-fourth pound of sugar to every pound of fruit and one quart of water to every pound of sugar. In canning strawberries, sour cherries and raspberries (to which she adds a half cupful of currant juice to every pound of fruit), she uses one- half pound of sugar to a pound of fruit, and water in tho same proportion as before. For pineapples, blue plums tmd gages she uses three- fourths of a pound of sugar to one of fruit, and water in the same proportion as for tho others, except pineapples. They require no water to make a syrup, as they have sufficient juice without it. Pineapples should stand n sugar at least twenty minutes be- 'ore heating to start the flow of ju"icc, and should steam forty-five minutes, or until they look clear. They should >e shredded with a silver fork, as the arge slices of pineapple that look so tempting in cans are awkward when served at the table, it being almost mpossiblo to cut them with the spoon without soiling the table cloth. 5amsou plums require five pounds of fruit to three of sugar. Quinces should first be steamed before putting them in a syrup. Fruit should bo ncasurcd by the scales; as sugar does not vnry it may be measured in a pint or half-pint measure. Fruit juice that remains after filling tho cans nay bo canned and used to flavor sauces and ices. When Ouo Is 111. "Ono of tho things that helped my recovery," said a woman recently, who has just regained her health after a serious illness, "was a pretty bed jackot which my sister brought me one day in lieu of jellies and fruit. It was becoming, and I enjoyed it. The doctor when he first saw me in it said I looked twenty ler cent better than the day before — manlike, he didn't appreciate the reason and my spirits, and, consequently, my condition, bettered in proportion. Too often invalids are wrapped in any old thing that is handy. I remember laughing once 'when a friend in robust hoalth'showecl me a dainty lace- trimmed sick gown; 'for me,' she explained, 'if. lever need it.' The notion struck me as absurd when she was never ill, but after my experience' w itli that bed jacket I up- predated better the value of attractive environment under depressing circumstances."

Tho habit which many men, partic ularly young men, have of paying patronizing compliments to tho young ladies they know is one which the "new woman" of whom we hear so much would do well to militate against.

A Field Ot 15lo»d. Trumpeter Connolly, of the Seventh cavalry, Was with that famous regiment at the battle of Wounded Knee, says the New York Journal. He was attached to C and D troops, which were on the hill overlooking the ravine during the early part of the fight, but he got into the thick of it soon enough to get a taste of the trouble—"a little bit of the fun," as he puts it. This is the account of the battle as he saw it. He told the story while he was sitting on a red-blanketed cot in his tent, a cutty -pipe 'between his toeth, and one heavily booted leg crossed over the other. "C and I) troops were stationed well up on the hill," said Connolly, closing his eyes to recall tho dramatic scenes of that memorable day. "Wo xvcre resting there quietly, awaiting developments. Though everything was dull in our direction just then wo knew gehenna might break loose at any moment, and wo knew that when the fighting did begin there would ba no child's play about it. Nev'erthe- less, the men took the situation very casHy, laughing and cracking jokes as if they were waiting to ride out on dress parade. "Of a sudden we heard several shots from the valley beyond, where A and K troops were waiting. " 'What's that?' asked the captain of me. I was just behind him of course. . " 'I think it's the opening of the ball, sir,' said I. 'A and K leading tho german.' "A moment later, at the captain's order, 1 sounded. 'To tho rear march.' Wo retired about 'a hundred yards, dismounted and advanced on a skirmish line. "Pop! pop! pop! \vont the carbines of A. and K, away over to the left. We went forward on a ttog trot, still laughing and joking quietly. When 'we passed over the brow of the hill wo lay down in opau order and waited for the redskins. "Pretty soon they came along. We had expected to tire upon them at sight, but wo didn't. Mixed up with the braves"—hare Trumpeter Connolly's scorn was unmistakable—"wero so many squaws and pappooses that it would have been impossible to shoot without killing some of tho latter. So we were obliged to let the Indians pass without firing a shot. "A littlo later, however, word came that about fifty of tha warriors wore lurking in a ravine half a mile to tho front. "Charge!" "My trumpet gave the call that was heard clear across the continent We sprang forward, each man gripping his carbine and running like a deer. "We found just about fifty Indians in the ravine. They wore all young bucks and fighting mad. Those follows fought like fiends, but they wero no match for our gallant fellows. C and D cut them down right and left, and inside of an hour wo had killed twelve and taken twenty-seven prisoners of the fifty. The eleven others escaped. Itnivo rhll Koui-ney. Tho daughter of Phil Kearney, Mrs. .T. Russell Selfridge, is gathering material for a book of memoirs of her distinguished father. Mrs. Selfridga is now in Munich, Germany, and in a letter to Captain Isaac P. Gregg, 53 Stato street, Boston, she says: "Among all things in heaven, above or the earth beneath would be some military anecdote or war reminiscence from members of the Third corps coming straight out of their great hearts and soldierly remembrance to bi'aco my article on Phil Kearney into stirring truth, penetrating its pages with somewhat of that norvo for which the Third corps loved him, and for which the3' themselves were famous." Mrs, Sslfridge naturally wishes to include in her work all the incidents she can gather, and there is littlo doubt that when her wish is made known to the Third corps men, who so greatly loved her father, she will have many responses. Any communications sect to Captain Gregg would no doubt be forwarded to her. IJilllurdu on Board the Ironsides, Tho gunners on tho Ironsides at Morris island had a neat way of exploding their projectiles within the fort. It was impossible to'drive them through the sand and cotton of which the work was made, nor could the guns be so elevated as to toss them in as fjt'om a mortar.. So the pieces were depressed, and the shot, striking the water about fifty yards from the. beach, jumped in. In nearly every instance this manner of' making the missiles effective was successful, "Those are what I call billiards," said the captain, watching the firing, "they cavoin on tho bay and beach ancl pocket the ball iu the fort every time!" as far front as Andet sohtille, and fact quite overcame the tlisappdti meht that we wera not permitted to go. . One night in July I was on duty inside the prison, where we were guarding over 1,000 Confederates. I was talking with an old man. white headed. and feeble, and his next comrade was a boy about 14, verifying General Grant's remark that "they robbed the cradle and the grave," and, boy liko (I was but 17), 1 asked him,. Wouldn't you like to hate us leave the doors open, so you could get out?" Me replied: "For God's sake, keep ua here as long as you can." Astonished, I asked why. He mad*. reply: "We never fared as well as this itt< our army." I puess he was correct, for We gave them good shelter, . good food and. drink, blankets, reading matter, liberty of action, with but one restriction that I ever heard, and I was. on duty at prison several times, and that was not to lay tlieir hands on. top of the fence. I have thought of those words thousands of times, and am impressed. that I ought to send them to you as evidence in tho question of the treatment of prisoners.

Rather an amusing' incident concerning General Grant is recalled as- having occurred while he was on n. journey in a railroad train, and where: he displayed, as usual, none of thcs insignia of his military rank. A youthful book pedcllor traversed the- cars, crying, "Life of General Grant." A mischief-loving aid pointed the youngster to the general's seat, suggesting to him that "that man might liko a copy." General Grant turned over the pages of tho book, and casually asked, "Who is ho this is all about?"
