In olden days the king's procession was
Kcnerjly witnessed from the streets. It
was bended by several hundred soldiers
niarchlntr without a semblance of or
der, nnd followed by etilrassed cavalry
mounted on microscopic ponies. Then
followed two rows of men in white,
wearing the student's cap, which was
their distinctive badge when Rolnf? to
their examinations, and between them,
perched on high white saddles, rodo the
Kenerals and high ministers, supported
by their numberless servants. Narrow
white banners were carried by their at
tendants, nnd a dragon Hag of largo di
ir. iisimis towered among them. Amid a
quite sepulchral sllenco tho procession
ini veil on, and then came a huge white
palanquin propped on two long, heavy
beams and carried hy hundreds of men.
When the court was not In mourning
the horses of generals, hlsh officials and
euiitir-hs boro beautiful saddles embroid
ered In red and blue; tho ponies, led
by hand. Immediately In front of the
. ns s paJniMiuiii, were similarly decked
I'urinusly enough, when the llrst royal
palanquin had gono past, the procession
repeated Itself almost In its minutest
detail, and another palanquin of the ex
act shape of tho llrst, and also support
ed by hundreds of attendants, advanced
In fi-.-nt of ns. The writer Inquired of a
neighbor: "In -which palanquin Is tho
No ono knows except his Intimate
frii ods at court," was tho answer. "In
cas of an attempt upon his life ho may
tlais bo fortunate enough to escape,
THu attempt would not be an easy mat
i r. xcept with a gun or a bomb, for
tb k.ng's sedan Is raised so high above
the ground thut It would be impossible
t r anyone to reach it with his hand,
ji'l t is, besides, surrounded by a nu
ir r .us escort. "
T- sedans were constructed In tho
pi of a square garden tent, with a
j ) .i. n roof, the front side being open.

Now York, Feb. 15, The share specula
tion on the Stock exchange to-day was Ir
regular and unsettled, the trmlcm-y be
ing la the main toward lower tlgures, and,
with few exceptions, the linal sales were
made at figures ranging from al-Vs per
cent below the closing prices of yesterday.
The defeat of the gold tend bill In the
house of representatives yesterday, while
entirely expected, hud a slightly depressing
Influence on thu market. An effort wns
made to create a bear sentiment on tho
strength of certain traiiMtetlona In gold, by
which Villi per cent wus paid by pros
pective buyers of bonds from the syndicate
as a premium or commission on tho gold
tccured. It is not un extraordinary thing
for a premium af ,,il per cent to be paid
to bullion brokers to obtain gold for un
emergency. The trading In the stock mar
ket wus more active than of late, but the
increase In business wus on the bear side
of the account. Tho selling movement In
Northwest was renewed, and the low point
was marked down qulto n distance, the
stock selling at 80'i, which Is a decline of
i per cent since February I at this year.
A rally of ',-s was recorded at thu close,
making th loss on tho day 7. There was
a considerable diminution on the volume of
trading in tho bond market to-day, and tho
speculative (ksties were neglected.

Very lixat snows fell Thursday in tho
West. The heavy snow storm, which it
seemed a few days ago might come this
way, went South. Vpwnrds of a foot of
snow tell iileng the Gulf coast, Tho tem

tiajiiw zero to 21 dog. above in tho last
twenty-four hours. Colder weather to
day; warmer Is piedlcled.
A Chicago ineasaue eavs: it Is something
of a, speculative novelty that tlm principal
hull In corn Is l'ardrlrii'e. While he In
short, as everybody supposes, a big line
of wheat, ho I- long a considerable lino
of corn. It is not his llrst experience 011
the long side of coarse grains. A few
years ago h was long a line of oats, which
would put to shame any short line he
ever had out. It is said, though, that
Pardridge hn- never hod any luck on the
long side. Ho certainly did not have any
when he was long about 10,000,j0 oats
through I .trail-stun some years ago.

we hnve done n good business In Russian
wheat, but for the time being business
with llussl.i s checked on account of small
offers from there. The stocks at Oilers,,

absolutely no snow on the ground, which
