S.—Dtrti'fl WeeWy filfriew of Trade eays: "With the *tdef mottey crops of the West and «*ttth sinking ia taitie It is not stratige that ptirchases of iiianuifActtlred pro-> titicts nre smaller than was expected. Wheat has touched the lowest point Jeter known for eptiohs and cotton the lowest ever Icnowa In any form With the.present classification, and the aecmmulation ot stdcks in-both products is dSscottraging -to purchase foi" iw advance. Pixuducers are compelled to sell at prices bcloxv the ordinary Cost of raising crorjis and in some western states there is talso a lamentable iftilure of the corn crop. Under the circumstances it iwonld be very strange if the demand for manufactured products should be quite as large as in other years. "Wheat suffes-s most from the accumulation of stocks in sight, which are far beyond what is' usually expected for the sea soil, and the exports for September afce unusually small. ilVjr the first tveek 'of October Atla.ntic exports were 1^037,372 bushels, against 803,740 last year, and western receipts were 4,015,800bushels, against 0,180,680 last year, and these figures give some encouragement, but have little influence in view of lite unusual visible supply. The price for cash wheat is a small fraction higher for the week. Corn receipts at the west have been only a third as largo as they were last year, with .exports amounting to nothing, but the price has not further declined after the heavy fall during the previous fortnight. Pork products arc weak-in tone, .though only lard is quotably lower. Cotton is one- eighth lower, the case price being the lowest known for forty-five years, and considering the difference in classification it is perhaps lower than at any tune in 1840, and estimates that the «rop is more than 10,000.000 hales are more "commonly credited now than estimates of 8.500,000 were two months •ago. With favorable weather the yield seems likely to be the largest ever Jmown. "The condition of the industries is in some respects more ssitisfactory. Evidently there is a larger demand for iron products than there was a month ago, though the increase in output has been somewhat greater than the increase in the demand. The structural market is fairly active in the west, without change at the east, and while the coke output has become the heaviest ever known, 149,775 tons for the week, the price is declining, and steps are being taken to limit the supply. "The boot and shoe trade continues to deliver more goods than in any previous year, as it did in September, and most of the works still have orders for one or two months ahead, although mainly for low or medium-priced goods. "There is a little better demand this OCTOBER 10. 1894 filed to itas fiMrict mat ... ffiafcel the etaftliflg charge that ftfl em- pib^e ttf'taiM A Boyle, who owned a saw Mil, set the fire which afterward bur tied Hinekley, The paper is an answer to & suit bfdttght by Laird «fe ftoyle against Wisdom & Cannon, who also owfl a mill at Pine City, with whotn there were negotiations pending f of an exchange of properties, the defendants to put in a note for $1*600 and make some other concessions. The answer alleges that the plaintiffs ought not td recover, since the mill was burned Sept. i, 1894, by a fire, "which was set and kiadled by the plaintiffs, their servants and employes, that it occurred wholly and solely by reason of the eafrekgsness • and negligence of the pin in tiffs and their employes, and that the fire so set and kindled was the same fire which thereafter and on the same day destroyed the, village of llinckley and a large amount of timber, as the defendant verily believes." Now Ynrk Republican* Nominate. NEW YOKE, Oct. 8.—The republicans last night at then- county convention nominated Col. William L. Strong for Mayor and John W. Goff for recorder. It was decided to not nominate the remainder of the ticket until after a conference with the anti-Tammany factions and the Committee of Seventy. The nominations were indorsed by the independent Steckler democrats, the O'Brien wing of the democracy, the good government clubs, the republican members of the German Reform union, the Civic Union and the Committee of Seventy. Uficle Sam Abandoning tho Killen. NEWOKLKANS, La., Oct. 8.—Calvin G Ausbern of Pittsburg, the wealthiest American resident, has been arrested for participating in the July riots, although he says he can prove ho was attending a. dinner and took no part, has received word' from Washington that Zelaya has consented to permit American prisoners to land in Blucfields and settle their affairs, although still considering them exiles and not entitled to trial. This is evidently all America will do for the prisoners, abandoning the demand for a speedy trial. Don't \Vnnfc Krco Silver. PAHKERSBUKG, W. Va., Oct. 8.—The fourteenth annual session of the farmers' national congress adjourned last night to meet at Atlanta, Ga., next fall, the date to be fixed by the executive committee.

In addition to the cold, raw air several showers fell during the day, which-left'thc-traek soft. Alix is quite a favorite here and rather than disappoint the 3,000 people that were out to see the sweet little queen start, Monroe Salisbury sent her out. Alix trotted a mile in 3:06>£, a great performance, considering the soft track. Trust In the Wheel Business.

When within Bight of her destined port, th.fc Quaker ship was chased by a Small French man-of-war. Captain Snilflh endeavored to escape, but finding that the cneiny Was rapid" ly gaining, and would be alongside In short order, he and his two officers ceased their exertions,. and retired to their state-rooms for the purpose of ae» curing a few trifles which they desired to.carry with them Into captivity. The cabin-boy Charles, a bright young Fhiladelphlan of fifteen years, followed •his captain, and asked If nothing more was to bo douo to save thff ship. The master replied that It would be useless; that If they submitted quietly they would probably receive good treatment, whereas to offer opposition would be but to Incur the 111 will of the Frenchmen, which would bo vented upon them, to tholr sorrow. Charles then-returned to the deck, aud address- etl tihe crew of fifty men telllug them that ho had a plan by which they might save themselves from a foreign prison. Iln then explained to thorn what he proposed to do, nud the sailors agroed to place themselves under his command and to execute his orders faithfully. A l'e\v miuutea later the French cutter ranged alongside and made fast; then sec-Ing: that no opposition was to be made to their boarding, nil but' about a dozen of them jumped on the deck of the merchantman, most of them diving below in search of plunder. The moment arrived for which ! Charles had waited. Giving the signal, to his men, he bounded over the bulwark rail, his trusty followers at his side. Before the few startled men- o'-war's men could recover their wits, several of the sailors cut the lashiugs that held Ilie two vessels together, while the remainder quickly overpowered the scanty guard that had been, left oil the cutter. While the discoiiK tlted Frenchmen stood on the deck of the Good Tidings, looking at their vessel only a few yards away, sailing a course parallel with their own, Charles hailed and ordered that the port just abend should be steered for, threatening that if they refused ho would blow them out of the water with their own guns. To make his threat effectual he sent the men to the guus and provided them wltli lighted matches. Understanding that their lives depended upon- obedience, they sorrowfully steered hi to the port of their- enemies,,' followed by the cutter with the English llag hoisted above the French. Upon coming to anchor, communication was had with the shore, and a detachment of soldiers was sent off to iron the prisoners aud mount guard over them. When the particulars of this daring deed became known the gallant boy was commissioned a midshipman lii the royal navy. He became one of the most distinguished officers In the English service, and rose to the rank of Admiral and Commander-in-chief. Being knighted by his sovereign, he came to be known as Sir Charles Wager.— Harpers Young People. The Little Wiittrefitt, Serious little Lucy comes, Quite demure and still.

The bottom of the skirt w finished by a band of the velvet gleaming with another lino of gilt buttons. The bodice was heliotrope chiffon over silk and shirred to a yoke of white broadcloth outlined with very small gilt buttons. The chiffon at the waist line tuck into a corselet of heliotrope velvet bordered with buttons. The draped sleeve was white chiffon over heliotrope silk. The puff was most graceful. Uolow the elbow the chiffon was drawn over a tight-fitting cuff, which seemed held together by a row of buttons.— New York World. \ w|}l Wis., Oct. If 8,— Mayor of Alder- c health pa.
