In the year 1626 Peter Minuit bought the whole
island on which New York City, now worth four
thousand million dollars is built. He paid $24 for
the island. Had he put out that $24 at 4 per cent
compound interest in 1626 it would now amount
to as much as the present value of New York City.

WEEKLY REVIEW OF
Condition of the Markets as Told In
Dun*s Weekly Review of Trad.- and
The business outlook is better than
1b indicated by the Current satistk
of bank clearings and railroad earn
ings. In dry goods, while the move
ment continues on a conservative
basis, and with an absence of any
speculative oxpanslon, there is, nev
ertheless, a notable influx of buyers
from all parts of the country, and
both the domestic and export demand
for cottons 1s good.
The Cotton Market.
After working to still higher levels
on the opening day, considerable pres
sure was directed against cotton, and
a moderate decline ensued. It was
considered by many as being nothing
more than a natural reaction follow
ing the recent sharp advance, and
there was a pronounced rally later on
active short covering. The market is
now plainly a two-sided affair, with
the long account showing increased
confidence as a result of the brisk
recovery from the low point touched
when the government crop estimate
was issued early in December. How
ever, the largest bullish interests are
not in favor of a too rapid advance at
this time, although strong support is
furnished whenever actual weakness
is threatened. It is significant that
spot houses have latterly been good
buyers and are advising purchases on
each decline, while the demand from
domestic spinners shows some signs of
broadening out. Moreover, no If111??
emphasis is laid upon the fact that
spot sales at Liverpool have kept Up
well in spite of the Lancashire labor
troubles, which, it Is now contended,
will be adjusted before the close of
the current month On the other hand,
many people are skeptical as to just
when the lockout will end. and the ex
isting uncertainty in this respect tends
to promote more or less nervousness
in the speculative markets. In so far
as the statistical position is concern
ed, depressng features predominate,
since it is becoming increasingly evi
dent that predictions of 15,500,000
bales or over for this season's crop
are apparently justified. This view
was strengthened by the ginning re
turns made public by the Census Bu
reau on Tuesday, .the figures showing
thai 14,332,706 bales had been account
ed for up to the last day of December,
or fully 1,867,000 bales above the pre
vious high record, established in 190'.).
Of even greater significance, however,
is the fact that in five states the
quantity ginned already exceeds the
entire government allowance for those
sections, the gains ranging from some
13,400 bales in Florida to over 63,000
bales In Georgia, while In Oklahoma
the ginning is within 12,.">00 bales of
the official estimates for that state.
When It Is remembered that the gin
ning reports will continue to come
in until around the end of March,
and assuming that 500,000 hales may
be added for (inters, It Is not difficult
to see that the commercial crop will
probably exceed 15,600,000 bales. As
regard the outlook for the new crop,
which is now attracting attention, a
good deal of discussion is heard about
the threatened reduction In acreage,
owing to the big decline In values dur
ing the past year. Obviously, nothing
definite can be known at this time as
to what will be done in the spring,
but It is at least gratifying that there
has been ample rainfall over a large
portion of the belt this winter.
From the opening of the crop year
to January f>, according to statistics
compiled by the Financial Chronicle.
9,6ir?,066 bahs of cotton came into
sight as compared with 8,464,750 hales
last year and 7,406,528 bales two years
ago. This week port receipts were
351,269 bales, against 264,502 bales a
year ago and 101,200 bales in 1010.
Takings by northern spinners for-the
crop year to January were 1,105,163
bales, compared with l,20r>,020 bales
lasl year and l,2r>2,327 bales two years
ago. Last week's exports to Great
Drltian and the Continent were 110,
906 bales against 221,378 in the same
week of lall, while for the crop year
5,487,721 bales compared with 4,554,
480 bales In the previous season.
Stocks of American cotton <n the
United States on January 5 were 2,

Peaches take more Potash
from the soil than any other fruit crop.
It has been conclusively proven that flavor and
shipping quality are not secured unless there is an
adequate supply of
The best growers use from 100 to 200 pounds of Muriate of Potash
annually on" their orchards in addition to the phosphate. The applica
tion of mineral fertilizers should begin when the trees are planted, so as
to insure strong wood and early bearing, continuous fruiting and
longer bearing period. ,11
Most peach orchards starve to death at a time when they should
be giving their very best returns. Feed them a bal
