HEW YORK MARKETS IP'inlishcrs' Prei New fork, Jan. 19. The course of prices of stocks in the opening deal ings followed the Loudon lead to a lower level. Declines were mostly fractional, but these extended to near a point in most of the speculative favorites, and there were wide breaks in special stocks. There were evidences of supporting orders in the market after the open ing and prices rallied. The supporting orders that were placed in the market after the initial dip caused a full recovery in most cases and lifted a number of the lead ers well over yesterday's closing. The rapidity of the rise induced gen erous profit-taking again, and some of the favorites fell back to where they began. Another rally occurred before 11 o'clock, but some stocks were very feverish.

Ind., Jan. 19, fSpi.j A freight train on the C. C. &.' U. rail road, J. A. Allen, engineer, ran down and killed a huge brown bear about three miles north of Twelve Mile, Cass county, yesterday. The bear probably escaped from a party of Russians who had been at Rochester exhibiting the animal, with two other performing bears, and had made its way to -the railroad track. It was wearing a muzzle and a ring in its nose to which was attached a chain about twelve feet long. "When first seen by the engineer the animal was mistaken for a calf, but when the engineer sounded his whis tle the animal reared on its hauncTi es and showed tight. The engineer was unable to stop the train in time to prevent striking the bear and the animal was killed and badly cut up Engineer Allen picked up portions of the body and took them home as evi dence.

"Arriving at the duke's palace, I be held a very dark skinned lady with thick lips, who was pointed out to me as the distinguished Algerian princess. Everybody was talking Italian, and I could understand very little that was going on. My suspicions were aroused, however, and, edging my way close up to the so called royal personage, I whispered: " 'Say, nigger, what part of the south are you from?
