NEW YORK. Feb. '2?To-day's stock
speuilation furnished adequata proof that
Increased interest was being manifested
by tho public in the market. This sup
position was based on the extensive trad
ing in railroad stocks, whicli comprised
properUos traversing a wide area. Pro?
fesslonal bpcriitors, peroelving tliat sup
port from commisslon-houses could be
relied on in _n upward movernent in the
standard stocks, devotpd their en'ergics
in that dircetion, causing the speelalties
to occupy a secondary position in the
market- This change Of front was in a
measure due also to tlie fact that some;
of the Industrials which had sustalned a.
substantinl rise showed cvidences of good
Recognit.ion of the encouraging general
sltuation and ihdlfference ol tlie Iocal
market to foreign complications formed
tho primary cause of tho reviv.-il of out
side interest. Important inovoments ap?
peared to !>o under way by substantiu1
lnterests. as to-day's strength developed
in first one group ol' railroad stocks and
Uien another until the list showed gains
running from 1 to 'I'/i points. In connec?
tion with the enormous buying of the
Baltimore and Ohio stocks, a statement

Dounced. an arbltrage house took ad?
vantage of the level to unload. but their
offerings of Io.imhi shares made no ciieck
to the current. Long-stahding short lines
in some of the middle-grade railrouds
were covered. and blocks of 10.000 to 'M.
C'o shares figured plentlfully throughout
ihe list, Interest was dlilused into a
great variety of stocks. and at times
some of the usuaily neglected ones vied

Early operations indicatcd that power

stocks, as prices of the minor securities
followed n jump of fi points in Tennessee
Coal to 30'. 'J'his stock suffered ncutely
from rcalization as tlie day progrcssed,
and onded with a gain of but .'!'.;. Prices
of kinJre.l properties were better ' sus
tained. but all relapsed from the best
figures. Flucluations in Third-Avenue
continued to be ol a sensational nature,
an early rise to 101 being foliowed by a
break to 90 on liquidation by interests
disturbed by the measures projeetod to
linauce the company's Indebtedness. A
rally to 'M% occurred in sympathy with
the pronounced rise of the general mar?
ket in the late dealings. Other Iocal utili
tics lacked feuture aside from the gas
securities, whieh. however. did not fuily
rotain a substantial rise. Western rail?
road stocks gave the lirst indicalion of
strength, and held their extremc rise.

NEW YORK. FebT 2.?COTTON--It was j
an excltlng day tn the . cotton market. -j
with speculation fully as large lf not
ln excess of that of yesterday. 'Though ,
bull enthusiasm was at a high pitch when '<
the market opened. senttment later was
hardly so opUmlstlc, though far from
beansh. With a great bull flourish the
market opened Jirm in tone At an udvance
of 5 tb 30 points. Energetlc and:general
buying soon carried prices to a level 0 to
13 points above yesterday, 'closing fig?
ures, and for a;time shorts were fncon
fusion and borderlng ou panic. The ca?
bles indicated extreme . sensational ad
vances on tlie English murket- From the
taouth came news of large business ih
spot cotton" at an advance of %@*4. The.
statistical sltuation sibroad. as . well as
in the belt, was shown by weekly figures
tq be very strong. The investment public
took a greater interest in the staple. an
uvalahche of buying orders coming from
all points of the compass. notably
Europe. The advance carried July within
_ noints of the coveted "eight cents," and
all slgns polnted to May reachlng that
point before midday, but when the bulls
were most confident and in the midst of
an aggressive movernent the cable news
suddenlv changed. Heavy liquidation
set in on the Iocal exchange, and before
a breathing ? spell was taken prices had
tumbled 10 to 12 points. Before midday.
however. the market had recuperated
nartiailv but spirited bull speculation
did not" again prevail. Persistent ex
pressloh of opinion that the new crop
positions were entirely too; high I served
to -ereate distrust among ho ders of those
options. which ii turn checked free byt"
ing in the nearer positions. lne market
in the afternoon was quiet but ste.iciv
on support from New Orleans and Liver?
pool. ln view of the short -"essiou to
morrow few -operators cared to launcn
important new yehtures, rnore particu?
larly as advices from South Africa tom
of a battle being on. The market closed
very steady. at a net decrease of !) points.

THE HOMING 1NSTINCT.
Abilityof Various Birds and Animals
to Find Tlieir Way Home.
The homing instinct develops in young
anireals almost as early as the desire for
food. In the wild state lt is a necessity,
since without it the young could never
keep in touch with herd or pack. Even
after centuries of domesttcation it is still
acute. "Witness this tale of little pigs:
They were under a month old when their
owner decided to move. He wanted to
fatten and kill their mothers, so offered
the lot of forty. at a bargain price. A
neighbor five miles away bought the
pigs, put them in a big box. holsted the
box on a wagon, and hauled it home.
There. the pigs were put in a close pen,
fed on milk and mush for two weeks,
then allowed to run in a small lot adja
cent to the pen. Three mornings later
every one was missing. A small hole
carefully rooted under the gate was the
sole explanation of their disappearance.
Their buyer s.earched high ana low, for
them, sendlng even to adjacent farms,
but could not find them. That after?
noon the original owner sent word he
had found fbirty-nine of the forty stand
ing squalling at his gate when he awoke.
The buver, going to reclaim the strays.
found the missing fortieth pig lying ex
hausted by the roadside. but still strug
giing to follow the trail'of its mates.
Upon the same middle Tennessee plan
tatlon a four-year-old mare was bought
from an Ohio drove. The drove had
been brought down on stock ears to the
county town.' seven miles away. The
mare seemed perfectly content in her
new stirroundings, so after a week or
two she was allowed to pasture with
other stock. For a day she was happy,
grazing and frolicking with the rest.
Toward noon of the second day a watcher
saw her suddenly fling up her head,
cock one ear forward. one back, as
though listening intently to a far call.
then start in aswinging gallop for the
pasture fence, clear it with one tlying
leap, across the tield of young corn, take
the boundarv fence, a much stiffer one,
and go away due North. Nothing more
was seen or heard of her for three
months. Then by a singular.chance she
was discovered. impounded as an estray,
more than half way across the State
of Kentucky. She had swum a con?
siderable river to get so far, and had
been taken up. through breaking into
a pasture to graze. She was going home
straight as the crow flies, making no
account whatevejt of the bends and
turns in the route by which she had been
Among fowls. domestic tiirkeys are the

tation's mistress found that out in a way
at once odd and provoking. She raised a
brood of fourteen. which turned out t.*
contam thirteen gobblers. irhey were Tine,
lusty bron_e-brown fellows. although this
was'in the year when ibronze turkeys, so
called, were unknown. She gave away
seven out of thirteen to as many neigh
bors, to put at the head of their breeding
iiocks. As a consequence, almost every
day for six weeks she had to go out and
help to separate her own turkeys from
some othei- flock. Each of, the gift gob?
blers came back home. not once but many
times. 'With his harem at his heels.
Cats are prover.bial homers. Southern
negToes have many entertalrung supersti
tions connected with their transfer. In
moving they say it is the worst luck in
the world to'take along a eat. lt is also
very bad luck to give away a eat. unless
its feet are greased. and allowed to make
marka on the threshold it goes over. They
say, further. the homing propensity can
be destroyed by putting butter on pussy's
feet before they touch anything ln her
new home. Black wainuts, which it is
nearly as bad luck to move as a eat,
may be made to serve as ill luck antidotes"
by cracking them carefully. and either
tleing a necklace of shells on the eat, or
putting them upon her feet for boots. It

She took all summer to do lt in. The

BALTIMORE. Feb. . 2,-Special.?An
estimate of building operations at Rich?
mond. Va., shows that during the next
six months at least $000,000 will be pald
out In construction work there. without
regard to the improvements on a larce
scale by two or three railroad companies
or to developments following the utiltza
tlon of the James river for electrical pur
poses. Among the Iargest enterprises are
three abattoirs.: costlng $100,000: three
warehouses. costlng $75,000; a $15,000
candy factory. and $18,000 additions to
manufacturing establishments already in
operation. It is. moreover. noted that
all classes of freight. especially iron pro
ducts. moved to and from Richmond
show enormous/ increase: that the de?
mand for rails, nails. axles and Iron- for
structural purposes has kept mills busy
day and night. and that there is not a
factory in the city which has not enough
orders to keep it busy for months. Rich?
mond is sharing in the general prosperity
which has come to the country durfhg
the past eighteen months. and Its expert
ence is typical of that which belougs on
a smaller scule to many other southern
communities. This is manifested. not
mercly by advances in the iron and coal
and cotton manufacturing. in the lumber
and phosphate trades. but by a multitude
of undertaklngs of various klnds lit minor
IROX FIELDS OF TEXAS.
Groups of capitalists have been tnve*
tigating the iron lields of Alabama aind
far-away Texas. and the figures of thc
review of the iron trade during the past
year. together with estimates of it for
the future. give a decidedly practicul
tinjre to the investigations. Among the
visitors to the South have been officials
of the AVoodstoek Iron AVorks. who have
been innuiring into coal and coke, sup?
plies with a view to meeting the demands
for the operation of two 200-ton furnaces
owned by the company at Anniston. Iu
the meantime there Is great actlvi'v 'n
the brown ore lands within a few miles
of that city. From a tract of 500 acres
from 100 to 150 tons a day are expeot-nl
to be raised. white the four Iarg. m-n'-s
are being developed near DeArmativi.ie
and one other near Jenifer and Choco
locco. respectively. while from an old
worn-out farm two miles north of Annis?
ton. which wus purchased a few months
ago for $H00, several thousand dollars
worth of ore has already been taken.
Among the new cotton-mlll preposltions
reported by the Manufaeturers- Record
