NEW YORK, July 27.— Something of
inanition appeared at times in the
stock market today but notwlthstand- 1
Ing this appearanco the total sales for
the day reveals small increase In the
lactual volume of tho market. The
! rapid movement of special stocks of
(secondary Importance was what gave
•color to the speculation and It will
be seen that many of the most prom
/ inent stocks on tho exchange were
dealt in to small extent and that the
majority of the list as a whole was
wholly overcome.
Without any widespread general In
. terest In tho / market spotty move
ments, such as those of today arc
naturally Interpreted as coming from
f professional operations of a more or
ess artificial character:
The uplift of prices was accom
plished, however, without meeting any
Important pressure to reallzo with the
'notable exception of tho Erio stocks,
which were subjected to the profit-tak
ing which has proved inevitnblo In all
recent cases on the publication of good
news.
But while the Erics themselves were
backward the placing of the second
preferred stock .on tho dividend list
by yesterday's declaration of a full
years dividend was undoubtedly the
prime factor in encouraging the pro
1 Sessional attempt to initiate a move
ment foi a rise.
When the action of tho Erie directors
Is considered as a supplement to the
Increased dividends In Reading, Balti
more and Ohio and Amalgamated Cop
per and the retention for Illinois Cen
tral of what has been called an ex
tra dlsbursemept and designed to cele
brate. a notable occasion tor the com
pany, thero is presented quite a com
. prehenslve array of evidence of the
■confidence existing amongst railroad
• managers In the stability of tho condl
. tions which have lifted the profits of
operatioi so as to enable increased
disbursements to stockholders.
■ Foreign exchange reacted sharply in
' spite of the hardening of London dis
counts and some attention was paid
• to reports of peace prospects and es
pecially to the rise of Russian bonds
; In- Paris. •
The taking of the dHy's profits in
volved some Inroads upon prices in the
- last hour of trading but the closing
tone was firm.

. HE ASKED BURRELLE s
ABOUT IT
There was at least one happy man In;
New York lust week and his happiness j
came about In quite an unusual way.; He t
told a reporter about it and was quite
gleeful in the telling. ■ . . . .. . -'. _>',
"I work for a big house," said he,- "that
haa a patent device to put on bottles.
The idea is that this little arrangement,
is snapped on a bottle containing poison.
Then when you get up In the middle of,
the night and feel around in adarkclosiet
for medicine, if your hands run up against
a bottle with this device on you puss
on. See the idea? You never drink poison
by mistake.
"Well, I have been a clerk In this
house for several years and one of thu
mottoes of the concern is 'grow or go.'. •
A big sign with these words on hangu
directly. over my desk and as 1 haven't'/
Blown much In business lines it has been
a Bource of worry to me. Now 1 am
coming to the point. The manager-
bustled up to me the other day and mild:
'Mr. Atkins, we are getting out a new'
pamphlet of our device and we want. to!
incorporate tn It examples of pt'ople who I
have taken poison by mistake. You can
read in the papers about them -.very*,
often. Wo want you to go to the public
library and read the., back- flies of the
papers for say two or three years to get
us. tlfty examples. It may take you two.
or three weeks to do this work,' but put.
on a. hustle and don't waste time.'
''■ "Now that's where my "grow or go\-
UU v , came , for the first . time. I . have ,
kept my eyes open and have, read ii -lot
of advertisements that ■ «tnrt ' off, "What
are they saying about t'ou? Ask llur-
relle— he'll . send you the . clippings. 1 So
I said to myself, If ho cun send mo tho
clippings, .I - guess that's what I , want. ■
8o I went to Hee ihn Hurn-110 people* and
found they ' conduct thu largest preka 1
clipping bureau ,in the world and read ■
all newspapers published. I instructed
them to give me every item they could,
find about people who \ took , polsun 'i byi
mistake. In .two days they found . sixty*.-
■even such items. I ; took; my sixty-seven :
Items to.tha manager, bowed gracefully
and said, 'I have finished the work, sir.'.
'You're growing all right.' said' the
mauager. Yuu cair; guess the rent,"
