Ex. div. 1 per cent.
The suggeVtfona in this column yesterday
morning as to (heinf luenres that -jhould act
most btrongly on the market at this time
were fully borne out by the course or
prices nnQ, tlie feelings of speculators yes
terday Prices went dovvu again, though
fractionally .only, and th'-re -were no indi
cations o'f strengthening- The market
was extremely dull and there -were evi
dences of a 'dec! re lo take prorits on any
slight, advances. The best: advice is prob
ably to S3il long stock ou any manip Hated
rallies if there are to bo any; but it is
extremely ,a matter of doubt if pool buy
ing can cau3'jany general advance between
now. and January 1.
It is given- out semi orriclally that the
dividend oa .Burlington will be advanced
from 4 tc " ppr cent at the meeting of
the dltectqrsiear the end of January. It
is a somewhat amblguouo giving out, but
Is worthy of, consideration at leait. Bur
lington's earnings at the pre-e it time are
abuudantly sufficient to pay 5 per cent
on, and 1!mj' will probably continue good
for .some months
It is stated, of Burlington that its gross
earnings ccntiiuc to increase $11!, 000 or
more daily, v 1th occasional Iirgcr increases,
evpn above. S-JO.00G. Rock Island's jar.i
IngsaTeeciuallyas encouraging. Thelatter
road declared its recular 1 per Cent quar
terly divideruiyesterday, as expected, pay
able Tcbtuary 1.
The New York Central yesterday declared
the regu'a r dividend. The surplus after the
dividend Tor the December quarter is $312,
000. For six months the surplus has been
$1,000,000, arter 2 per cent, against a
surplus of $221,771 last year. The Met
ropolitan Street Railway yesterd ty declared
a dividend or 1 1-4 per cent, pajable Jan
The rumor of a dividend some time !n
the near future on Pan Handle rec;i'es
added ccnriimatiori. The road is earning
a dividend on the common, unquestionably.
Chicago Gap has a coterie of tenacious
friends.' Tl-esc people are predicting that
the stock will go to par during the jeir,
.nd far ibov e thatln the near f urure. The
Chicago G is pioposition Is an excellent one,
as has'been pointed out many times in this
coin. -an The trust Is earning its dividends
easily, and apparently is on a strong foun
dation as well.
1 Dow Jones & Co. say of Manhattan:
"There is' Better buying of Manhattan
than traders thought there would be on
IT IS EASY TO TELL.
People are not apt to get anxious about
their health soon enough. If you are ''not
quite well" or ''hair sick" have you ever
thought that your kidneys may be the
cause of your sickness?
It la easy to tell by setting aside your
urine for twenty-four hours; a sediment
or settling indicates an unhealthy condi
tion of jhe kidneys. When urine stains
linen it Is evidence of kidney trouble- Too
frequent desire to urinate, scanty supply,
pain or dull incite in the back is also con
vincing proof that the kidneys and blad
der need doctoring.
There is satisfaction in knowing that the
great remedy, Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root,
fulfills every wish. In relieving weak or
diseased kidneys and all forms of bladder
and urfnary troubles. Not only does
Swamp-Root? give new life and activity to
the kidneys-ithe cause of tiouble, but by
treating the' kidneys it acts as a tonic for
the entire constitution. If you need a
medicine ytnf' should have the best. Sold
by druggists, price fifty cents and ope
dollar. So remarkably successful ha3
SvvampjRoOk been that if jou wish to
prove lttfgreat merit, you may have a
samole bottte'aud pamphlet both sent free
by ma41.iMcn.Uon The Morning Times and

decision. Insiders Tnlfanhattan are tak
ing more Interest tlfail 'they used to do
in this slok, andnow their trading
makes a great dlfrenc.e in quotations.
The new deve'opment is not as formidable
against Manhattan, jifij, was expect Jd to
be. Sut only is there expected to be
delay in getting-a contractor to bid inder
the conditions imposed, but there 1 the
difficulty of gettinga, right to issue
