New York Cotton.
NEW YORK. March 20.-In face OJ
ginning figures that were close ta
expectations und pointod to a crop ol
around 17.000,000 bales,, including lin
ters, cotton today shewed such pro
nounced strength that October ?qual
led its previous high record and Jan
uary made a new high level for the
movement. The close was steady at a
net ad\lince of 10 to 13 points.
Liverpool came somewhat lower
than due and was responsible for a
partial opening decline here of 4
points. After casing off a point cr two
further on near months, the local mar
Advices from the south indicated
that spot people appeared to be un
concerned over the question of sup
plies and the feeling here seemed to
be that thc t>rospcctlvc material re
ducVcn in acreage and uncertain,
weather condition? would b? fif more
vital concern to the market from now
on than tho ,-dze of the past crop.

said to be confined chiefly to July

Burglars fear detection, consequently they do most
of their work in the dark. Itjs a matter of record that
well lighted towns, streets, and well lighted stores and
dwellings are. burglarized out seldom. Why is it that
Bank and Jewelers usually leave a li^ht burning in their
places of business every night?
Would it not be wise and prudent to have a light
placed on your back porchwith the switch in your bed
room, or some other convenient place?
The cost IR very trivial. Phone No. 223 and let us ' .
tell you how little it will co?t. \
