Tuesday, Kov. 8.
The bants were open to-day, and so were
. the Grain and Flour Exchange, the offices
of the stock brokers, real estate and mer
chandise brokers. The wholesale and retail
mercantile houses were also open for busi
ness, as usual, but the Stock Exchange was
closed, and in no other quarter Mas any
attention of consequence paid to trading.
A little interest was manifested in local
securities, but so far as Inquiries were ex
tended, the list appeared to be unchanged.
At the meeting of the "Western Insurance
Company to-day the old Board of Directors
ai ic-clccted, as follows: Alexander Kim
Jci., Ciurles J. Clarke. Philip Eeyuier, II. Sel
lers McKee, John B. Jackson, Edwin H.
Stowc, James S. Attertmry. James a.' JIo

street this allernon at 'Zi and 1iV re
spectively. Instead or readinjr "President. Otto C.
ISerKdorff," tho first ticket presented by the
Bankers and Bank Cleifcs' Asociation,
printed In The Dispatch, should Lave read:
'Piesident, John W.Taj lor; Vice President,
Otto CLBercdoiflV' The rest of the ticket as
printed was correct.
The $90,0i.o 20- ears per cent bonds or the
rittsOui-R, Allegheny and Manchester Com
pany, dated Xoverribcr S, 1S72, were being
paid off to-day by tho Fidelity title and Trust
The Pittsburg Incline Plane Comnany an
nounces a qu irterly dividend of 2J per cent
payable on demand.
Baltimore and Ohio.
The follow inn Is from the circular letter of
Messrs. liambleton & Co., of Baltimore:
"Some largo trans ictions in Baltimore and
Ohio stockat the New York Exchange and a
slight improvement In prices were made the
occasion of a rumor that some deal was on
foot and that an option had been obtained
on a majority interest in the Baltimore and
Ohio Company. The pool, which pm chased
the $5,100,000 treasury stock from the Balti
more and Ohio Company, have been large
traders in or rather buyers of Baltimore
and Ohio stock in the maiket, and
have, probably, accumulated 20,000 ad
dltional shares, and are supposed to
control some 70,000 out or the total
SoO.OOO shares. The Garrott party here hold
75,000 shares of B. & O.. so that the two in
terests now hold a majority of the capital
stock, and if combined could at any moment
control the management and policy of tho
company. As an in estment, B & O. stock
is not especial! v attractive. The company
has only recently resumed the paymrnt of
dividends.and has increased its capital stock
from $15,000,000 to $25,000,000. This capitali
zation, it is tiuc, is comparatively small, out
the (undoadebt and fixed chargesaie exces
sively large. The earnings of the company
show a lame decieasc, and except lor the
large increase in pissenger traffic,
incidental to the Grand Army En
campment, would probably have de
creased for the 12 months $500,000
net As it is, the decrease was over
$200,000. B. & O. stock has undoubtedly, in
addition to its intrinsic woith, a speculative
value nhich may command fancy prices for
a controlling Intel est. The two parties who
hold the majority will probably come
together ultimatelv. a deal be effected, and
the road change hands. We have no doubt J
that sooner or later this will take place, tmt
wehaidlv think the time has yet arrived.
The Beading and B. O. are woiking in
liaimnnj and have mutual Interests. The
B. & O. would be a valuable acquisition to
the Reading svstem, and some day the two
systems may be united. For the present B.
& O promises to remain as it stands, and
any movement in its shares will be, iu our
opinion, governed more by manipulation
thim by any prospective change in the
management and policy of the company."

local quotations, so that 3c per lb will be
added to quotations, the last of the week,
which will bring cost to retailers up to U
26c per lb. A y ear ago the marliet here w as
somewhat above these prices.
Eggs are Dlgner, with strictly fresh In very
light supply; poultry is in big supply and
easy: game is in light supply and rather

GOING DOWN THE HILL
Old Age Creeping on Shows Itself In Lack
Lustre Eyes and Trembling Hands
Many Who Are Old In Years are Vigor
ous and Healthy How Such a Condition
may be Encompassed by AH,
How many elderly men and women we see
who plainly show they are "going down the
hill," The trembling hancT, the uncertain
step, the lack of brightness in the eye, tho
shrunken features, all indicate that life is
not at high tide, that the strength and vital
forces aie not what they once wore, and in
fact, that they are going down the hill. This,
of course, is to be expocted, for when one
reaches later years, physical troubles are
sure to come, but how many elderly people
we see are healthy, happy and comparative
ly vigorous. They always seem cheerful,
bright, contented. Why should not all be
equally fortunatet It certainly is possible.
Every elderly man and woman needs to
gently assist nature, all the while needs to
take some pute stimulant regularly. Every
doctor In the land admits this, and its com
mon sense must do manifest to all. It should
not be understood, however, that any ordi
nary stimulant would be recommended. It
must be something pure, powerful, health
giving and strengtli-impaiting. Such a
stimulant can be found only in Duffy's Puie
Malt Whiskey. It is the only mediclual
whiskey In the market. Its wonderful popu
larity is due entirely to its power and what
it has accomplished. Any elderly man or
woman through its use may certainly pre
serve the health, and mav reasonably
expeot to prolong the life. Do not be in
duced, however, to try any inferior article
or any which the druggist or grocer may
seek to put in its place. There is nothing
which can accomplish the same object.
