weekly review of trade says: The alarm
about cholera has vanished, and trade In
every direction shows all the improvement
that was expected. The South is a little
dull because cotton is low in price and late,
but a little improvement has been seen
during the past week. In a few quarters at

for higher prices so that collections are re

all points, the supply is ample for all
legitimate needs. Gold exports have ceased,
foreign exchange has declined, aud the
money market is at present without disturb
Speculation is not, on the whole, active

Wheat has recovered 1 cents, but sales
here have been only 6,000,000 bushels.

Business at Boston Is sound and large in
volume. Improvement is seen in groceries
at Philadelphia, At Baltimore business is
satisfactory, though quiet with the South.
At Pittsburg trade is satisfactory aud grad

50 per cent greater than last year. Business
at Clevelann is imnrovincr in nearly all de-

drygoods, drugs and shoes. , General trade
at Chicago exceeds last year's for the same
week with good prospects. At St Louis
trade increases with large distribution of
goods, a free movement of grain and coun
try buyers in larger numbers than usual.
Business is healthy at Milwaukee, very ac
tive at Omaha and shows a marked increase
at St Paul.
The Situation in the Far West
At Denver trade is very satisfactory, but
no improvement is seen at Salt Lake. Re
ceipts of cattle and wheat are heavy at
nansas uity. -At juempms trade is im
proving, and at New Orleans cotton is in
better demand and sugar strong and active.
Pig iron is firmer, some Alabama furnaces
advancing the price 25a Bar iron
is slightly easier. Some slackening
is seen in plates, and on the
whole the prospect for finished products
is not quite so favorable. Large sales of
copper at HJc are reported, and lead is
slack at $1 10, with tin steady at 20.15c.
Coal is active in retail trade. Actual sales
in August by the Lehigh Valley averaged
24 cents below the schedule.
In wool increasing activity is seen, sales
far exceeding last years', and carpet wools
are especially firm and scarce.
Foreign exchange has suddenly broken

were 300,000 strangers in the city during
the G. A. R. encampment The superin
tendent of the car service figures that the
Baltimore and 'Ohio road carried 80,000 pas
sengers. Superintendent Fitzgerald, of the
Baltimore division, had 13 miles of Full
man cars to look after, and he was very
glad when the people commenced moving
Speaking of the 'encampment Mr. Smith
said: "I have seen lots of crowds, but I
wouldn't have missed this one ior the
world. It was' the event of a life time, and
I never expect to see anything like it again.
My wife and children sat on the Thirteenth
street grand stand from 10 o'clock in the
morning until 6 in the evening, and then
the parade had not passed by. I got so
nervous at the end of two hours that I got
down from my seat and walked around. In
some lines the old boys were marching 50
abreast It was a grand sight, and I, should
have felt very badly if my two daughters
had not seen it The soldiers are returning
home, but the rush will begin to-morrow,"

John McDowell, of Washington, Presi
dent of the Pennsylvania Agricultural So
ciety, left for Lancaster last evening to ar
range for a second State Fair to be held
there from October 10 to the 15th.
Mr. McDowell said the condition
was that the people were to raise

had the money, for they telegraphed him
to come on, and they would accept his
proposition. The railroads are offering
special Inducements to make the fair a suc
cess. A prize of $500 will be paid to the
roan who can plough the straightest'and
best furrow. Mr. 'McDowell said they had
a number of special attractions, but the aim
is always not to smother up the agricul
tural and horticultural features.
The society held its annnal fair at Scran
ton a few weeks ago. This is the first time
that two were projected in the same year.
Mr. McDowell said it was done to liquidate
the debt The Philadelphia venture ot the
society ten years ago proved most disas

he became President S40.000 of the debts
have been paid ofE He hopes to see the

a case or CANCEK
Given Up by Se en Doctors.
"About ten years ago I became troubled
with an itching and burning sensation in the
back or my neck which was caused by my
irritating a 'mole.' I consulted a physician
and learned that I had a mild lorm of
cancer. Like all those so afllloted, I wanted
to conceal the tact; lor cancer is a loath
Bome disease; but it grew so rapidly and be
came so painful that I put myself In the
hands of a physician, who assured me that
the cause of my cain could readily be over
come. The cancer was finally removed, the
growth at that time being about the size of
a silver quarter.
"lu less than a month it broke out again
in a most virulent form and rapidly grew in
size. The sufferings I underwent were
agonizing. I consulted almost a score of
physicians, but tbey all assured me my dis
ease was beyond all hope of relief. Mr.
Charles Bnrham, a neighbor and friend, who
had previously been cured Of the same dis
ease as I was afflicted with at Hutchison's
Cancer Hospital, came to see me on his re
turn home and urged me to go to that insti
tution. "At the time I was so weak and exhausted
that I could scarcely stand on my leet. My
physician. Dr. Smith, said Hutonison's Can
cer Hospital was the best place for me to go.
There was not one of mv family or friends
but jvhat expected when I returned home It
wonld be In a coffin.and I fully believed such
to bo the case myself as I packed in my
trunk the clothes to be used, as a shroud
when death came. When I reaohed the
hospital at Sewickley, Pa., I was so ex
hausted that death seemed imminent. I was
taken to a large,cheerful room and attended
by tho resident physician, Dr. L B. Cliantler,
lor several days until I had recovered suffi
cient strength for the cancer plaster to be
applied. At that time the soro extended
fiom one ear to the other, and from the
roots of the hair down about three inches on
my back along the spinal column. Owing to
my lack of vitality, great care was exorcised
in my treatment The plaster was applied
first in a very mild form, in consequence
of which several applications were nec
essary. In a few weeks a percep
tible change was noticeable in my
condition, and one laree piece of the dis
eased flesh dropped off, and I bean to feel
strong. The plastor was most effeotlve in
its work, and about three weeks aso the last
particle or the foreign growth had come out,
and this without the uge of a knife or opera
tion of any kind. I am now in better health
than for 20 years. In fact, I have grown so
strong and fleshy that my own family could
hardly recognize me on my return, and
those who had predicted my return in
coffin, looked upon me as one 10 turned from

comfort of the patients. The best of medi

My nostrils were stopped up all the time
with a tough mucus, which also dropped
down into my throat, causing lmwklng and
spitting to raise. I couzbed up great clots
ot terriblo looking stuff. I had sharp,
shooting -pains through my chest, with a
heavy bearing down pain as if a big woistht
had been placed on my chest, which made it
difficult to draw a full breath.
"Whenever I would go to work the stoop
ing over would cause such a severe pain
through my stomach it would start me to
vomiting and finally I became so bad I had
to give up my work entirely. My appetite
failed me and I couldn't sleep. I got up In

the racking pain and weight on chest Is
gone and 1 feel like a new man. The most
remarkable part of it all is that I derived all
this benefit from just one month's treat
ment, but, to make sure of a permanent
cure, I have paid for another month's treat
ment and intend to keep on, so there will be
no chance for a return of the trouble. I
have often thought of how much money and
suffering I might have saved if I had con
sulted Drs. Copeland, Hall and Byers a year
ago, and put myself under a thorough
course of treatment Instead of dilly-dallying
along with cough syrups and prescrip
tions which did me no good."

with Mr. Michael Schatfer, a mill worker,
who resides on Penn street, Alt Oliver.
"I had catarrh of the stomach in its most
seveie form for two years. During all that
time it was impossible tor me to eat any
thing without experiencing terrible agony.
"I not only had no desire to eat, but the
sight of food made me ill, and I used to
starve myself rather than face the ordeal of
talcing a ineai. .Especially was tnis toe case
"The result was that I grew weak and
emaciated, and was utterly unfit lor the
performance of any duty. In fact, I did not
care to live.
"At last I decided to try Drs. Copeland.,
Hall and Byers. When I went to their offioe
1 was leeling very badly, indeed. I began
their treatment and now feel as If I had
never been sick a day. It seems wonderful.
Not only lias the catarrh disappeared, but
my stomach has regained its lormer
strength and tone. I have nn excellent ap

There is nothing brighter in
suits than a bright boy. It's
a shame to inflict cheap,
shoddy clothing upon such a
lad. Nothing can' suit the
season and the boy so well
as one of our nobby, Double
Breasted Cheviot Suits. They
will look better, wear better
and cost less than such suits
usually do. Durability
and elegance are strong
points in favor of a
suit and they are the two
points about our Home-Made
Suitswhich render them more
suitable for bright boys than
any ever offered. From $2.50
to $5.00 we can fit any boy
ibetween 4 and 14 years of
age. We also carry a full
line of boys' headgear. You
can find nowhere as large a
