It doesn't take much of .it to

Cotton goods are at Ihe 'highest quo
tations-of last year, with good .demand
though cotton has declined -a little.
But the goods were at no time advanced
quite in proportion rto the material.
Woolen goods, are much lower with re
spect to wool than a year ago, and
some further .advance has been expect
ed. Wool is strongly held though full
prices asked .a month ago cannot be ob
tained. Cotton does not rise further,
because receipts from plantations have
.-somewhat increased, .and .accounts of
of large -stocks at many small towns
have attracted attention. The southern
mills which usually supply themselves
with large stocks from the surrounding
country without passing the cotton
through any market or drawing it
until it is wanted, have bought largely
on account of the publicly announced
combination last fall to raise prices.
These mills consumed last year 1,400,
000 bales, but are reckoned as having
taken for this year's crop only 491,000.
Wheat still moves sluggishly with
small changes in prices. In six months
of the crop year about 99,000,000 bu
shels, flour included, have been export
ed, against 123,000,000 last year. The
price is practically unchanged, as also
for corn, of which 2,923,195 bushels
have been exported for the week,
against 3,572,412 last year.

Agent W. J. Pollock.
Washington, Jan. 5. It is under
stood that the recent investigation of
W. J. Pollock, agent at the Osage agen
cy, in Oklahoma, will not lead to his
removal, as has been generally sur
mised. No incriminating evidence was
developed. The conclusions are said
to point to the agent's lack of quali
fications for the place rather than to
any violation of law. The matter is in
the hands of Secretary Hitchcock, who
is understood to regard the case as not
sufficiently serious to justify Pollock's
Troops for Alaska.
Washington, Jan. 8. At the cabinet
meeting it was definitely decided to

except Cape Nome, where it is estimat
ed there will be 30,000 people as soon
as navigation opens. Troop3 are ab
solutely necessary to preserve order.
The place is now without government
of any kind, and some sort of force
will be 'necessary to protect the com

. Will Do Away with Stamps,
English postal authorities are mak

away with the old style of "stick-with-a-llck"
postage stamp. The new ap

is an adaptation of this idea. It can
be placed on the street corners, or in
the postoffices. By putting a penny in
the slot the letter is thrust into a slot
and presto, change! a dry or riband
stamp puts a stamp on the corner of
the letter, when it can be dropped into
the box. The machine cancels the
stamp with the date, time of day, etc.,
all at one operation. . There are differ
ent slots for the different denomina
tions of stamps. If this machine
proves the success which its inventor
hopes it will do away with the present

Hon. W. N. Roach. United States Senator from North Dakota.
Hon. W. N. Boach, United States Senator from North Dakota, personally
endorses Peruna, the great catarrh cure and tonic. In a recent letter to The
Peruna Medicine Company, at Columbus, Ohio, written from Washington, D. C.,
Senator Boach says:
"Persuaded by a friend, I bare used Peruna as a tonic, and I am
glad to testify that it bas greatly helped me In strength, vigor and
appetite. I have been advised by friends that It Is remarkably effica
cious as a cure for the almost universal complaint of catarrh."
Senator Boach's home address is Larimore, North Dakota.
Peruna is not a guess, nor an experiment; it is an absolute, scientific cer
tainty. Peruna cures catarrh wherever located. Peruna has no substitutes
no rivals. Insist upon having Peruna. Let no one persuade you that some other
remedy will do nearly as welL There is no other systematic remedy for catarrh
