MORNING STOCK LETTER.
New York, Jan. 14. The London
market this morning' as to American
stocks does not show any particularly
striking recuperative powers. There
seems to be considerable anxiety in
the European capitals as to today's de-
day's decision by the grand council.
As to the newspaper comment, we
notice a disposition to become rather
conservative, especially so in quarters
that were acreechingrly . optimistic a
short time ago, and they may be just
as wrong-now as they were then.
It is now said that the "progessive"
speech of the president-elect will be

For Instance, we find In the "Prolu

might be held to embody a cmde de

Strada represents two friends as car
rying on a correspondence by means of
a "certain loadstone which has such
virtue in It that, if it touches two nee
dles when one of the needles begins t'i
move, the other, although at ever so
great a distance, moves at the same

Monte Carlo Just Smile at Them and
Keeps on Winning.
There are only two games played at
Monte Carlo roulette and a simple
card game called treufe et quarante.
One Is assured that these games are
played quite fairly and that the per
centage in favor of the bank Is 01 to
GO. Whatever it may be. this certain
perceutage in favor of the tables over
comes all systems that human ingenuity
can work out by any law of averages.
M. Blanc will permit you to play any
way you like, mid to double your bet
as often nn you like until it reaches
6.000 francs at roulette or 20.000 francs
at trente et quarante. Then you must
begin over again, for It is quite clear
that if one were permitted to double
indefinitely it would only be a ques
tion of time and sufficient mouey to
put M. BUiuc out of business.
Thus it happens that M. Blanc, who
takes no cbauce. wins against all those
who are permitted to tnke any sort of
chance they like. Sir Hiram Maxim
disposed of nil systems when he shat
tered a popular delusion in these words:
"If red bus come up twenty times in
succession it is Just as likely to come
up at the twenty-first time as it would
be if It bad not come up before for a
week. Each particular coup Is govern

tion. It Is a pure and unadulterated
question of chame. and it is not in
fluenced in the least by nnythlnp that

Inventory brings to light many things in a furniture store. We find that there are many,
articles that we bought with pride, feeling sure all the time that they would meet with
your quick approval, but they have not and we must get them out for we need the room
they occupy. Then, too, we have here many odd pieces. These were left from sets and
suites that pleased our customers, only they could not use the entire set. In a way they
represent the cream of our stock and yet they are of little worth to us now. ' So we shall
