New York, Feb. 5.?Freeh growth of
confidence In the price of secureties
and the prosperous outlook for bus
iness was reflected In the renewed up
lift of prices and expansion'of activity
In the stock market laut week. Two
Incidents of the week had a dominant
effect in shaping speculative sent!-j
merit, t^<? statement of programme
of Improvement of the I'nlon Pacific
Hnd the BUppllmentary announcement
of Chairman Gary of the fJnlted StateH
Steel corporation with the quarterly
statement of earnings.
Sense of Securit>.
The decision of the Colon Pacific
management to proceed with the
double tracking of the system by tho
expenditure of $7.",.000.000 extending
over the next five years swept Into the
background most of the mlsgl 'ingu
over railroad conditions which still
remained. This programme and the
expression of confidence by the chair
man of the Union Pacific board pro
claimed a sense of security for the ,
future which is not impared by the J
still undecided question of railroad
rate Increases, the anti-trust cases be
fore the supremo court and the suit
for dissolution of the I'nlon Pacific
and .Southern Pacific systems. Ap
proach of the time for decision of
these questions threatened to bring
them into force as repressive influenc.
es <iti financial progress. The Union
Pacific announcement proved a time
ly factor, whether designedly or not,
in counteracting this Influence.
Restored confidence on the part of;
the railroad managements may be
traced to tin ready absorption of new i
capital issues. Issues of new securtles
In January were $22.",,000,000 In the
New York money market, a new high
record for tha month.
The prevailing sentiment of special
news. Bigna?zed In a resolute way
by the poor showing of the De
cember quarter of the Cnlted Steel
earnings, was Ignored In favor of the
announced lmprevement since ihe
first of the year.
This statement said the daily aver
agc of broking or new orders from tho
corporation had risen in January to
30,000 tons compared with 21100? tons
in November and December.
The controller's abstract of nation
?ul bank's returns as of January 7 was
notable for a drop of $191,560,000 in
individual deposits in eight weeks,
with a parallel reduction of only
000.000 in the loan account. New
York clearing house banks account d
for $162,600,000 of the shrinkage in
deposits and a decrease of $147,000

?00 FACTS OF MOUTH POtB
All Meridian. Meet and Every Dlr*?~
tlon I? tU'jth? It I? Always Noon
mm Time Vanish**.
At thm north pol? all meridian" meet
and every direction la south. Bo the
fixed meridian upon which the de
termination of longitude and time de
pends is lacking-, and It Is necessary
-*P ass um? an arbitrary -direction as ?
the meridian. A parallel c* latitude Is !
rsduced. to a single point and longi- j
tude entirely vanishes. Time also
vanishes, for It Is always local noon.
All winds blowing over the pole blow
from the south and also toward the
south at the same time. The magnetic
needle points due south. The stars do
not rise and set, but describe a circle
around the horizon.
The north star Is not directly over
head, but describes a circle four and
one half times as broad as the sun's
face. If a man should walk westward
on a parallel of latitude three and one
half mllcK from the pole at the rate
of one mile an hour, he would bo trav
eling eaBt at the sai le velocity with
which that part of the earth Is golDR
west. 80 he would not be moving at
all, but wouW be treading the earth
under his feet In the same way that
a dog walks on a rolling barrel.
The auroras shed their mysterious
radiance over the long polar nights.
The phenomena of auroras extend
through a zone the center of which is
near the magnetic pole, but the maxi
mum effect Is observed at a consider
able distance from this pole. Inside
this belt of maximum effect auroras
are seen to radiate from points both .
north and south of the zenith, but at
places outside the belt they stream
only from the north.
There appears to bo an Intimate re
lation between the distribution of
auroras and that of barometric pres
suse In the polar regions. To science
the discovery of the pole Is of great
importance. A knowledge of the ocean
depth, winds and temperature at the
pole are of the greatest valus in
geography and meteorology.
SIMPLE HOME-MADE FILTER
Originally Designed for Filtering Gela

The filter here described was first
made In 1878, and used originally for
filtering gelatine emulsions. As a
water filter It is both simple and effec
tive, says the Scientific American.

It In a hole cut in a wooden shelf as a
support. Pour the water in until tho
filter is filled, when it will bo observed
that any organic matter, chips of iron
rust, etc., Will bo retained by the cot
ton for about one inch, but no far

will bo bright, clean and pure.

Failed in Health
"My mother died six years ago," writes Miss Ruth
Ward, of Jerseyville, 111., 4 and left me to care for six
children. 1 had never been strong; and this, with the shock
of her death, was too much for me.
"I failed in health. 1 was tired all the time and did
not want to go anywhere, nor care for company. 1 had
the headache all the time and such bearing-down pains.
"A very dear friend advised me to take Cardui, as it
had done her so much good, so 1 commenced to use it
and now I am in good health."
The Woman's Tonic
Women's pains are relieved or prevented and women's
Strength is quickly restored, by Cardui, the woman's tonic.
You yourself know best if you need it, or not.
If you do need it, do not delay, but commence to use
it at once. Every day of delay, only lets you slide further
down the hill.
' Don't wait, then, but begin to take Cardui today, for its
use, no matter how prolonged, cannot harm you and will
surely do you good.
