WEEKLY REVIEW OF
Condition of tlie Markets as Told In
Dun's Weekly Review of Trade and
immediate requirements to replen
ish depleted stock?, coupled with low
er prices, are mainly responsible for a
continued increase in trade activity.
The Improvement is conservative, but
it is steady, and it is noticeable in
nearly every large trade center. The
large crop and early maturity of cot
ton, making for lower prices, is work
ing a readjustment In the cotton goods
trade oa the basis of Increased activi
ty. The result Is a resumption of op
erations in mills that were idle and
an increased production in mills that
were working part-time.
That the dry goods trade Is expand
ing steadily Is shown by the Increased
operations of mills and manufactur
ers of different dry goods specialties.
Jobbers are beginning to look further
ahead for early spring needs, and
lower prices for tickings, denims rind
other heavy colored cottons have re
sulted in more active ordering.
The decline in cotton prices is now
meeting with more or less resistance.
Reports of heavy rains and sugges
tions as to frost were supporting In

keted and export trade is brisk, ship

Dry Coeds and Woolens.
The general demand for cotton goods
holds up steadily and is still char
acterized by the conservative ?lze of
the orders and the wide territory from
which they come regularly. Lower
prices in primary markets are beget
ting a new confidence among jobbers
and retailers and there is less hesita
tion in ordering what Is needed. The

that a further- adjustment of values
may he forced, but for the time being

required and yjnce forward business

Tlie -4!otton Market.
It has been more ^h, two-sided cot
ton market this week, greater resist
ance being offered to the downward
movement of prices. Business was
again on an active scale, with sharp
fluctuations in both directions, al
though a moderate net advance was
the ultimate result. A sudden rise
of some $1.50 per bale at the outset
was prompted'by fears of unfavorable
weather developments in the South
west and eastern sections of the ladt,
yet selling pressure was quickly re
sumed and values subsequently broke
through the 9-cent mark for the Octo
ber and January deliveries. Thereaf
ter much irregularity prevailed, with
the short accoutn becoming somewhat
j more cautious and the bullish element
being encouraged to take a more ag
gressive position, owing to predictions
of frost and the appearance of rather
heavy rains in several States. Also,
?the exports continued liberal, domes
tic trade advices were in certain in
stances more Cheerful and resumption
of work at southern yarn mills was
noted. Advocates of higher prices ar
gue that with such a large short inter
est outstanding any serious setback to
the crop would start nil urgent cover
ing movement that would of itself lift
the market well above the present
level, and some buying for a turn was
based on this theory. On the other
"Cardui Cured Me"
For nearly ten years, at different times, Mrs. Mary Jinks
of Treadway, Tenn., suffered with womanly troubles. She
says: "At last, I took down and thought I would die. I
could not sleep, I couldn't eat I had pains all over. The
doctors gave me up. I read that Cardui had helped so
many, and I began to take it, and it cur^d me. Cardui
saved my lifel Now, I can do anything."
If you are weak, tired, worn-out, or suffer from any of
the pains peculiar to weak women, such as headache,
backache, dragging-down feelings, pains in arm, side, hip
or limbs, and other symptoms of womanly trouble, you
should try Cardui, tht woman's tonic. Prepared from per

band*, there are so many bearish fea
tures in the situation that the majori
ty of traders scout the idea that any
permanent recovery is likely at this
time, and hedge selling by the South
is still a prominent feature. Few peo
ple are now apparently disposed to
-doubt that this season's crop will
prove a record-breaker and the ten
dency is to Increase rather than low
er estimates on the final result. As a
matter of fact, 17.000,000 bales has
even been hinted at, but such enthus
iastic forcasts do not receive serious
consideration and lf>,000.000 bales
seems to be the most popular guess.
Certainly the crop is coming forward
with great rapidity. In spile of the as
sertions that cotton would be held
hack for better prices, and the next
official ginning statement Is awaited
with keen interest. A new feature of
considerable importance has been sup
plied by the rebellion in China, cables
from Liverpool stating that China was
cancelling large orders for cloth in
Manchester. It is contended that this
development may eventhally affect the
foreign demalul for the actual staple,
but thus far the shipments abroad are
running heavy. Itfeing about 300.000
bales in ex'cess of the takings for the

The regulation which provides that

amusing incident at one of our south
western army posts recently.
Private Blank, recently returned
from a two years' tour of utlty in tlio
Philippines, having departed this life,
the officer in charge forwarded to his
wife in a small Ohio town an Itemized
list of tl:e property of the deceased,
with a request that she check off the

balance could be sold. In due tlmo
the list was returned, asking that all
the articles except the one erased be
forwarded. That our' Item had been
so scratched, erased and blotted out
that It was entirely obliterated. The
officer's t urloslty was aroused, so he
referred to a carbon copy. Whereupon
he discovered that the Indignant wid

husband's one housewife. ? Lippin

What a Valuable Message to the World
THAT OLD, RELIABLE 4-cylinder, 5-passenger Model T touring Car,
unchanged during its four years before the public, except for a
few refinements, put on the market now $690--equipped to the last
detail. The Model T Commercial Roadster for $590. The Model T
Town Car for $900. And a new Delivery Wagon on the same Model T Chassis
for $700. These prices include full equipment: Extension Top, Automatic
Brass Windshield, Gas Lamps, Generator and Speedometer. Is there any
wonder that "When Ford Speaks the World Listens."
If this were the announcement of a new model you might be skeptical of the car's
merits, but Ford Model T is the best known car on earth. More of them are on the high
ways of the world than there are of any other motor car.
This is the fifth session of the Model T and its absolute reliability has been proven by
80,000 satisfied Model T owners. Think how that car has been tried and tested in four
years of hard service. Ford owners in every quarter of the globe will tell you today that
their Model T Cars are reliable in every emergency and of surprising efficiency and utility
under any and all conditions. After all of the millions of miles those cars have traveled,
everybody knows the Ford Model T is right.
And that's the same sterling car that is being built for 1912?75,000 of them?with
added features which go to make it even more convenient and valuable for users. By rea
son of the largely increased production, with consequent economy in buying and making,
the price of 1912 has been largely reduced.
