EEKLY REVIEW OF
Condition of the Markets as Told In
Dan's Weekly Review of Trade and
Records of both bank clearings and
railroad earnings reflect the recent
conservative expansion In trade ac
tivity due to more spirited buying to
replenish stocks that becamo depleted
through long hesitancy. Bank ex
changes this week Increased 11.2 per
cent, outside Now York and 7.5 pet
cent, in New York, aud railroad earn
ings gained 3.0 per cent, during Oc
tober. In the dry goods trade, while
there is little disposition to buy large
ly for the future, there is a continued
satisfactory business in the supply
of current requirements, and there
is a notable increase of activity in
print cloths. Larger sales occur in
woolens and worsteds than last year,
and advices from the leading cities
indicate a generaly improved textile
.situation. The seasonable wealh< r
and the approach of the holidays Im
part a brisker appearance to retail
trade. The government ginning re
port again makes an unsurpassed rec
ord, clearly rellectlng a remarkable
aggregate for the cotton crop.
Moderate orders for cotton goods
are coming forward daily, but hesi
tancy is noted in the placing of any
substantial advance business. Low
er prices are stimulating orders on
print cloths and convertibles. Print
er.-; have sold more goods than they
have produced in the past lour months,
and are running well on percales and
miscellaneous staples. Duck mills have
a good business on hose and belting
qualities and more trade is coining
forward, on wide cloths. Exports of
domestics are substantially ahead of
;t year ago for the corresponding pe
riod of the year.
The Cotton .Market.
After drifting listlessly about for
a time, the cotton market finally mov
ed a little further up stream this week.
Evening up of contracts prior to the
holiday tended to accentuate the early
duluess and then, too, there was a gen
eral disposition to await the appear
ance of the Census ginning returns on
Wednesday, These proved to he just
about what the trade had expected;
thai is, tiie figures agreed closely with
the popular guess of 10,000,000 bales.
This, of course, is another new high
record, yet the report had been so
freely discounted that it exerted lit
tle Immediate Intlucnce. However,
the more the statement was studied
tlx- more bearish it seemed, and later
a selling movement broke out that
swept away a previous moderate ad
vance. Other factors operating to
ward the same end included liberal
estimates its to the quantity of cot
ton to he brought into sight this week,
while cables from Liverpool stated
that largo shipments of goods to China
hnd been cancelled. Yet, around the
fJC level the short account Is inclined
to become less aggressive? than when
prices were a cent or two higher,
whereas spinners are obviously Und
ing the market more1 attractive than
for several years past. It is true that
>.) oy are not buying in tiny vast
amount, but the demand from this
S mice has broadened and furnishes
an element of support that was pre
viously lacking. Also, the Continent
has been purchasing the distant op
tions at Liverpool and the British
B iard of Trade reported a noteworthy
In trease in exports of yarns and cloths
during October as compared with the
same month last year. Another
strengthening Intlucnce was supplied
by reports of wonthor conditions
throughout the belt, the appearance of
genoral rains being supplemented by
i 'dictions of lower temperatures In
tiie Southwest. Toward the close the
market rallied unite briskly, the de
: and from Ruroponn Spinners contrib
uting largely to the advance.

* FULL YALUE FOR FE UTILIZER.
Home-mixing has come to stay,
and means a larger use of high-grade
fertilizers, and it would be the part
of wisdom for the dealers In ferti
lizers to give the fullest opportunity
to farmers to buy the materials. It
would mean larger sales for them
rather than any cutting off In demand.
It is a very short-sighted policy that
makeB the fertilizer dealers throw
hindrances in the way of farmers get
ting the materials for home mixing.
Sometimes, too, they seem to forget
that ii real farm paper is more In
terested in helping the farmers to the
best methods than in Belling any spe
cial brands of fertilizers. We have
consistently advised the farmers
against the purchase of low-grade fer
tilizers, and have explained to them
that low price does not mean cheap
ness in these articles. We do not
blame the manufacturers for making
the 2-S-2 goods, for they are simply
Compelled to meet the demand for low
priced goods, and are compelled to
sell an article that is one-fourth
worthless filler. It would be better
for manufacturers and farmers, too,
if only the higher grades were sold,
or that farmers would farm so that
they would not need to buy a complete
fertilizer at all, hut would invest as
much, or more, money in a more lib
eral use of what they need to buy.
The men today who arc farming best
are the men who practice a good ro
tation of crops, and instead of a little
200 pounds dressing of a low-grade
fertilizer, tire using throe times as
much of the mineral elements that
their legume crops especially need.
And these men lind that as they in
crease the organic matter in their
soil it pays them to use phosphoric
a?.ld, and, in some conditions, potash
more liberally than they have ever
There is profit to the farmer In a
judicious ;ise of commerlcal fertlllzei
and the better a man farms the more
liberal purchaser he becomes of the
fei tili/ing materials that he Minis ins
soil needs And the fanners ar?j rap
Idly find'nn mit what they nead and
what they lo not need to buy. uul the
mnuufit'Hurcrs who are wise will soon
lind that it is to their Intei'OSt to soil
farmers wnat they want and let thorn
use it in such proportions as soil and
crops demand. When we find in the
reports of the stations* hundreds of
brands offered as "specials" for this,
thai 01" the other crop, and no! that
every one of those "specials"' is the
same thing, it is evidently time fcr the
tanner to do his own mixing and try
to make his "specials" (it his crops
and Iiis land.
We believe in the more liberal use
of such fertilizing materials as the.
farmer needs. We know that appli
cations far heavier than are common
ly used will pay better than the little
dribble of a couple oi hundred of
pounds of a low-grade complete fer
tilizer, if the application is governed
by the real needs of the soil and crops.
We want to see the buyers of the fer
tilizing materials make some money
as well as the sellers.?The Progres
