NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE.
NEW YORK. Sept. 15?Very large |
amounts of money found its way into
stocks and bonds today, and the
apathy and depression which hung over
the stock market during practicaly all
of the morning were completely dissi?
pated. Even sugar, which at the open?
ing showed some continued apprehen?
sion on the part of holders regarding
the formidable competition impending
in the trade, yielded to the prevailing
influence and more than recovered its
early losses on very large transactions.
Manhattan, another standing resource
of the bears, resisted attack and rose I
with the general market. When these is- |
oiated cases of weakness were elimina?
ted from the market the whole list j
mounted vigorously upward and it was (
evident that a bull movement was in
full force again. The late uneasiness I
over the future of the money market
had completely disappeared. Ruling I
rates were not lower, 'but entire confi?
dence was felt that they would not go
higher. The calculations of Treasury
officials that the payments of the bal?
ance of subscriptions on account of the
new bond issue would make no further
demands upon the money and the ad?
ditional decline in exchange, both con?
tinental and sterling were the factors
which served to relieve apprehension.
Ther was no reactions of any impor?
tance during the day and the closing
was firm and generally near top prices.
The increased confidence in the |
market outlook was reflected in the i

A jury That Spoiled His
HOW THE DRINK IS MADE
The Ingenious Idea Conceived by Mr. Joe
Utily, of Phoebun, AgeDt of the
Home Brewing Compauy.
That popular beverage and alleged
non-intoxicant heretofore dispensed un?
der the alluring and euphonious alias of
hop ale will in future pass by its right
name. A jury in the County Court so
decided yesterday afternoon, and there
is not- the slightest likelihood of an
appeal from their decision. As a result
of their conclusion, one Ben Boyd, a
colored resident of the town of Phoebus,
stands indebted to the commonwealth
in the sum of fifty odd dollars, despite
the eloquent effort put forth 'by At?
torney E. E. Montague to present him
to the jurors attired in the mantle of
Until last Sunday Ben was happy as
the owner of a well patronized restau?
rant on Mellen street. For several
weeks Fortune had been dropping her
shekels in his lap with unstinted favor.
But the day of all days to the young
restauranteur was Sunday, for then the
good dame came with her palms filled
with guineas that made the merriest of
music as they jingled their way into his
spacious till. Nothing could have been
more satisfactory than the way things
moved along in this Mellen street eat?
ing house until Officer Mastin, observ?
ing the hilarious effect produced by the
food served by Benjamin Boyd, became
suspicious and as a means of clearing
his mind decided to "enquire within."
Alack the day! From the moment he
crossed the threshold Ben Boyd's trou?
bles began. In the room were a number
of men quaffing the contents of half
pint bottles labled "Hop ale, a non
Mr. Mastln promptly filed against
Boyd the charge of selling beer without
a license, and last Tuesday the grand
jury returned a true bill. When called
t#> the stand yesterday he admitted
that he had sold the ale. but did not
regard it as an intoxicant. He obtain?
ed it, he said, from Joe Daley, the rep?
resentative of a Richmond brewing
company, and had learned from that
person that a man could not drink
enough of it to make him drunk. He
did not know that he was violating the
law. He knows it now. In reply to a
question as to how he learned a'bout
hop ale, Boyd rhymingly replied that
he "went to a ball in Kaiser's hall,"
where the beverage was sold and
Mr. Daley, who was summoned to
testify in Boyd's behalf, upset the ne
groe's chances of escape by telling how
hop ale is made. The bottles are part?
ly filled with water, after which enough
beer is added to produce a drink with
an alcoholic strength of about three and
a half per cent. Then, instead of call?
ing it actual beer, a hop ale label Is
slapped on the bottle and a Sunday
drink, which is better than no drink at
all, is ready for the thirsty patrons of
sham establishments like that conduct?
ed by Boyd.
Mr. Collier made a strong speech to
the jurors, in the course of which he
indirectly complimented Mr. Mastin for
entering the restaurant for the purpose
of escertaining what was going on
within. "That is an officer's duty,"
said Mr. Collier with considerable em?
phasis. "If a man is suspected of vio?
lating the law the policemen should go
into his place of business and if he
finds that his suspicions are well found?
ed he should arrest the offender if he
has to snatch him baldheaded in doing
Mr. Montague made the best speech
possible for his client.
THE FORT MONROE HOSPITAL.
How the Soldiers There Are Cared For
In these times of comment and crit?
icism with respect to the manner in
which the government is caring for its
sick and wounded soldiers, it is highly
gratifying to be able to point to the
general hospital at Fort Monroe as an
establishment at which the critics can?
not fairly aim their guns. Despite the
numerous difficulties by which he was
confronted in his efforts to make pro?
vision for the comfort of the men who
were 'brought from Santiago with
wounds made by Spanish bullets, Major
DeWitt has proved beyond all doubt
by his painstaking and admirable man
abement his fitness for the responsible
post which he -holds.
Through the kindness of Dr. S. P.
Cottrell, the courteous executive officer
at the hospital, the Daily Press corres?
pondent was yesterday permitted to
visit the various departments of the
institution. The doors of none wer?
closed to him, but, on the contrary, he
was told to make his inspection as full
and complete as possible. The tent
wards were the first visited. All of
them are provided with close board
floors, elevated at least a foot above
the ground. Each ward accommodates
about twenty patients, and is so ar?
ranged that absolute privacy may be
secured in any part of it. Every morn?
ing the floors are washed until they
shine like that of an old time Yankee
kitchen. An experienced lady nurse
presides over each ward, and with that
tender and sympathetic care which
only a woman can give to the suffering,
plays the part of a ministering angel to
the men by nursing them "*"Back to
health and strength. The cots are as
clean and tidy as the beds in a first
class hotel. In many of the wards seen
yesterday the convalescing patients
were pleasantly passing the time over
books, magazines and newspapers. The
main building is not a whit more com?
fortable at this season than the tents,
nor is it provided with conveniences
which are not enjoyed by those shelter?
ed by the thick canvas walls.
The clothing worn by the sick, or that
which has in any way been exposed to
infection, is put through a scientific
cleaning process which renders it ab?
solutely free from disease germs. The
water supplied to the men Is boiled,
filtered and cooled in a manner which
entirely eliminates all danger from that
prolific source of malarial and typhoid
fever. The bath houses are all that
could be desired, are provided with hot
and cold water and a sufficient number
of tubs to meet the demands of the
The food will compare favorably with
that furnished by any average boarding
house In Hampton or Newport "News.
In the main dining hall yesterday the
dinner consisted of bread, cbffee, butter
beef, vegetables, etc. The kitchens are
clean and tidy and the food Is well
cooked. The diet of the sick Is adapted
to their condition. Those well advanc?
ed on the road to recovery- are per?
mitted to eat chicken, a wagon load of
which the writer saw in course of pre?
Dr. DeWitt lias a corps of able and
experienced assistants, which fact ae
counts for ihe small number of deaths
at the hospital since it was opened.
There are now but few men seriously
ill at Fort Monroe.
THEIR FIRST MEETING.
A gentleman who is well informed
concerning the reform movement in
this county is authority for the state?
ment that owing to the numerous ac?
cessions to the ranks of the reformers
It has been decided to call a meeting
for organization within the next fort?
night. What the plan of campaign will
be has not been made public and prob?
ably will not be for some time. It is
reliably stated that nothing in the way
of a spasmodic enforcement of the law
1 will have the effect of obtaining the
zeal of the reformers. It seems cer?
tain that the movement has come to
stay. That many prominent men have
given it their endorsement is a fact
which will be convincingly demonstra?
ted within a few weeks.
- THREE GIRLS LOCKED ITP.
Maggie Cline, Katie Wilson and Katie
Queen, all of Phoebus, were arrested
Wednesday night by Ofllcer Deistn and
brought here to be locked up in the
county jail. They were arraigned be?
fore Justice Furness upon tin- charge
of immoral conduct. The justice told
them they would have to give bond in
the sum of $100 each for their good con
duet during the ensuing six months, or
go to jail.
TO INCORPORATE PHOEBUS.
There seems to be no doubt that the
next legislature will be asked to incor?
porate the town of Phoebus. Leading
men there are beginning to consider the
question seriously. They say that with
a good local administration they will
be able to control the lawless element.
This view is- held by Mr. E. M. Tennis,
one of the leading busim-ss men of the
place and a gentleman who is esteemed
throughout the county.
The town officers are after the own?
ers of dogs upon which this year's tax
has not been paid.

"It is chiefly for her own instruction
and guidanoe that a mother needs to keep
some kind of nursery notebook. For tho
refreshment of her memory when pntionco
Is likely to fall and for the reawakening
of dulled sympathy with childish moods
as well as for the enlightenment of others
to whom she may choose to impart, her ex?
periences the results of her labor will
more than repay her for the trouble taken.
"She need follow no rulos, nor even at?
tempt to make rogular entries, unless sha
has inollnation for the task. Facts bear?
ing upon physical variations aro extreme?
ly valuable, and It Is wlso to note tho
weight and growth of a child at regular
Intervals to necertaiu whether ho Is devel?
oping normally. Even more important
are observations upon his general health,
temperament, disposition and tho use ho
makes of his faculties.
"Although the mother herself may not
be aware of the standard ho should attain,
her statemont of facts may giro tho clew
to a physician when puzzling symptoms
show themselves. Often deafness and de?
fects of vision might be prevented if tho
early signs of their coming on had been
heeded. A single incident in a person's
life may give the keynote of his character."
Tears are usually governed by tho nerv?
ous system and the nature of the mental
excitement. Children cry from pain when
thuro is an undeveloped state of psychio
emotion. With years tho emotional nature
of human beings becomes mora highly de?
veloped and seems to take the part of the
purely physical as far aa the lachrymal
system Is conoerned.
Men oan stand the most intense physical
suffering without .shedding tears, and yet
may shed them on the slightest provoca?
tion of sorrow, happiness or anger.
With them there is always an actuat?
ing cause, but there are men as well us
women who can shed tears without any
apparent reason whatever.
I know a lawyer who can weep copious?
ly when defending the most desperate
criminal, in whoso personality he cannot
possibly have an interest. It may bo that
he is able to work himself into an imagi?
native state of feeling, just as persons do
without design when they become suffi?
ciently interested in a novel to weep over
tho fate of the heroine, or he may huve been
born with the power to weep at will.
Otherwise I cannot account for it.?St.

The "Vienna men of luw have recently
distinguished themselves in a unique man?
ner. A Wachau peasant had been caught
In the criminal act of throwing stones nt
rabbits. He had not hit them, and tho
rabbits had decamped without so much as
suspecting the attack, but the peasant
was hauled before the high courts of jus?
tice. His defense was that the rabbits had
been close to his garden and that he had
only tried to frighten the greedy rodents
off his cabbages. All the same, ho was
condemned to three days' Imprisonment.
The peasant appealed against the sentence,
but In vain. If a rabbit hod been killod,
said the authorities, tho peasant would
certainly have stolen it, and stealing n rab?
bit was an unlawful action. And thus tho
man from Wachau went to prison for threo
days, and the wlso judges of Vienna have
bounded into fame for their new method
of applying tho "If" and "and" theory.?
