XEW YORK. Feb. 2.?BiaJstreefs to

Weather inlluen-jes have played no
small paxt in tho general trade situation
this week and yet sutr.e o fthe unques
tionable iniprovt-ntsn*. ia tone c.ai hardly
bo charged to the more seasonable
weather experiehced. Whatever the
eauscs, however, and these have been
diverse. tho i"act remains that a number
of staples, no less than speculative secu?
rities. have hardehed in value during the
One industry. that of anthracite ccal. .
prices in which had beguh to drop be?
cause of the. open winti :: has been
braced. The lriliuer.ee pf coldec weather;
too. is pereeptible in the wheat market.
Much of tiie winter sr-v-f* crop is un
pro'teetcd by snow and other influences
of strength in this market have b.iea
the rcrlorts as to foreign crops, the Ar
gentine -plague and consequent strength
of European adyiees.
Among products not affected by cur?
rent weather conditions,. however, might
bo mentioned'.'thie Sou.th's great staple,
cotton. which, owing largely to the bet?
ter foreign buying and the reported
abahdbnment of extremely large English
crop estimat.es, has reached tr.e highest
point for a niimber of years.
There is little comfort to ihe -hopes for
lower -prices in tlie reports from the irr.n
trade this week. It is true thut s'ime
concessiohs have been .made from tlie
high points reached on a number of
products, .but the cohcessions in pig.'Ir'on
are claimed to have been levy, and mostly
on the produce of furnaces recently put
in blast. whose output had not been con
tr'a'cted for. Inquiry at the leading
iron markets of the country fail to in- '
dicate any widespreaci weakeningy- as
the cohcessions are claimed to have been
really in the nature of readjustments.
The steel situation is not over clear, and
,some buslitiass is rei>orted possi*)Ia at
concesslons of $1 and .<2 a ton where t'ne
product has not been concracted ahead.
Some export biisi't-e.-s ia raijs lo Xorway
?'s rtaorted this week,"- while frcm Bir
mirigham comes reports of some good salas
bf pig iron with i'urthc-r- export business
cheeked by advahcing freight rates.
The productibn of leading southern in
lerests is reported sold ii]i to July.
Iron trade. authorities are siow to pre

of foreign markets is ri-.-.irded as a guar

REV. JOHN RICE, SEVENTY-FIVE YEARS OLD, Scotch Grove,* Iowa,
"My wife and I have used two bottles of Paine's Celery Compound
with tfrear advantage to our general health. It cured her rheumatism
and proved a good regulator of the system in general and a tonic for the

me almost instant relief."
* The human system in old age must have a large
store of nervous energy and rich, nourishing blood.
