Wnll Stroot Review.
New York, August 4. The great ma
jority of tho sales of stocks on the
exchange today was mndo at prices
very substantially above last night's
closing. But the market succumbed In
the last half hour to a sudden selling
movement Induced by profit taking.
The effect was to wipe out nearly all
the earlier gain In most stocks and to
leave tho average level of the market
but little changed from yesterday. To
tal sales were 517,200 shares.
