New Orleans, May 22.--The trend of
prices it the cotton market this week
was anything but decided and fluctua
tions were narrow, the range for the
week being only 42 to 55 points. On
the close prices nyere 15 points down
to nine points up, compared with tle
close of the preceding week. July
traded -as high as 12.71, fell off to 12.16
and closed at 12.2i. .In the spot (le
partment, middling gained 13 points In
the net results, closing at 11.75. A year
ago middling closed at 10.25.

narrow price changes. The weather

and unfavorable reports in foreign
news and the same thing might be
said about reports from textile cell
tors of this country, although, on the
whole, the trade was inclined to look
upon business among the mills as
making at least slight improvement.
Iales of 180,000 pieces of print cloths

rere regarded as encouraging but
much of their effect was lost because
of the claimis of a much Iarger -busI
