Last Saturday the threatening aspect of
the slruatw.m, coupled with the recol
lection of the developments of the pre
eedihg "SundViy. Tn the suggestion for
the recall of General Lee, led to reckless
short selling by the traders, dirlvtag the
market to a point ?even lower thorn the
Monday market succeeding The Lee in?
cident. The pinching administered to
the jreolflees bears in the rebound of
last Motrnd'ay made them extuemely dju
ti-ous ab'U't putting out slhort lines in
today's market.- The consequence was
tin almost Jj'feless market, as no one Is
ready to take the long side of the muir

n<in'7(;rn?' Ulnsenir.
There is a pretty story going the
rounds of how a certain grower made
$10,000 in five years from one acre
of ground, growins ginseng. The
?tory sounds very like others emanat?
ing from the man who yearly has some
wonderful new plant, the seed of which
he offers at a high price. The true
tacts concerning ginseng are. in sub?
stance, as follows: It grows naturally
in the mountainous regions of Penn?
sylvania, New York and the South, but
under cultivation it has not proved a
successful venture to those who have
tried it, for it will not grow in sun?
shine or dty places, and no coaxing
can make it grow. Of course few
farmers have a soil and location sim?
ilar to the mountainous home of the
plant.?Atlanta Journal.
Got a Fine Inatrnd of n Bounty.
A man in the neighborhood of Mar?
lon, Penn., shot a screech owl, and,
believing there was a bounty on birds
of that kind, took it to a Justice of the
Peace to make the proper affidavit. The
Justice assured him that there was not
3nly no bounty on the screech owl, but
thai on the contrary, there was a pen?
alty of ?5 for shooting one. The Jus?
tice said that he was sorry, but, as the
man had confessed to the violation of
the law, he hhd no alternative but to
Impose the fine.
