CONDITION OF BUSINESS.
Dun's Review of the State orf Trade-Gen
eral Iinprovemeut.
NEw Yonx, March 12.-Distribution of
products is unquestionably improving.
Transactions are on the whole larger than
a year ago, in spite of dep:ession at the
south, being very much larger at the west.
Nor is improvement confined to that sec
tion, though general there; it is also more
distinctly felt in eastern aities, and there
are not wanting signs that trade at the
south, though still much embarlaesed by
the low price of 'otton, is steadily gaining.
With all the great inlustries active, with
money abundant in spite of gold exio:ts,
and with speculation kept in wholesome
check, the outlook would seem to be un
usually favorable, notwithstanding general
complaints that prices are low and mar
gins of profit unusually small.
Iron has been the dismal feature, but in
stead of a decrease the weekly outi.ut
shows a large inorease, so that March 1 it
was the largest aver known, 192,902 tons,
against 188,135 last December, hitherto the
maximum: A year ago there was a shrink
age owing to strikes, but 183,846 tons had
been reached in December, 1890, and 180.
011 in March, 1890, so that for two years the
increase has been but seven per cent. The
trouble in this industry is that while sharp
competition between nbrthen and southern
producers put down prices, the consump
tion has been irregular, at some seasons ex
tlrordiuary, but atothershesitating. There
is such shrinkage new that a leading Le
high producer has reduced the price $1 ter
ton this week, making the lowest quota
tions on record, 8onthern companies are
trying to consolidate, and meanwhile No. I
Birmingham is offered delivered at Troy
for $15.90. Rails are innetive, bar is dull
and plates weaker. In copper there is also
an effort to consolidate or combine pro
ducers, as yet with uncertain results. Trade
in tin has been small and lead is dull.
The textile industries ara improving.
Sales of wool at Boston, Philndelphia anlo
Now York for the year now exceed last
year's to same date by 4,700,000 pounds, or
10 per cent, and while buyers do not specu
late and the tone is weaker, it is clear that
manufacturers are taking wool more
largely. On the whole, more machinery is
busy than a year ago, espeially in chev
lots, overcoatings and eloukings, and the
dress goods trade has successfully closed a
big season. In knit goods buyers hesitate.
The trade in cotton goods is larg, ly in ox
coos of last year, sales in February ehow
ing a big increase in every department.
Busiuesa the past week has been better at
Boston, especially in leather and shoes, and
shipments have been a shade larger than a
yJ .r ago, though tie ,eo. ease for tire your
thus far is still six per cent. Wools a l were

last year. Hartford notes much better
hardware traoic and improvement in dry
goods. At .'Philadlubia, while iron is de.
moralized, and the market for wool in
buyers' favor, liberal orders appear for dry
goods. and the trade, except with the south,
is the best for many years. In groceries,
paints, oil and glass, there is gradual im
provement, and in tobacco, the larger ciar
makers being busy. Pittsbulg tinds the
volume of trade in iron smaller, and tonle
further talk of olosing furnaces, but the
glass trade is fair. The grocery trade at
Cliincnati is good, and saddlery and har
ness active. Good trade is noted at Cleve
laud in dry goods, hardware, boots and
crockery, and jobbing trade exceeding last
year's at Detroit. UtIicago repo:rtt liaeral
increase in sales of moerchandise ex
ceeding last year's thus far, and
receipts of productsr show gains of a third
in cattle, half in earn and rye, double last
year's in flour and barley, three times in
wheat, four timUnR in dressed beef, while a
decrease of a third is seen in cnred meats,
hogs and wool. Money is plenty for legit
imata trade. Througlhout the northwest
the storm has unsettlud trade, though
everywhere proapecte are considered bright,
and at Milwaukee and ht. Paul trade much
exceeds last year's, while at Omaha thoh
siderable increase is seen. At Kansas City
cattle receipts are 10,00(0 head above last
year's for the week, and at St. Luais pros
pects are considered good for a large in
crease of trade. It is gratifying that notes
of cheer colme from the south; Louslvilll
reports the largest sales of tobaeco in the
history of the trade, and general improve
ment, while the business is fair but im
proving at Nashville and MCemphis, and
some improvement is seen at New Orleans,
where sugar is rising with an active de
mand, and better feeling ins seen in cotton.
Speculation in products is weak, wheat
being two and three-fourths cents lower,
and corn a quarter, exports falling much
below those of recent weeks. The govern
ment report that after the enormous move
ment thus far, 171,000,000 bushels of wheat
remained in farme:s' hands March 1, the
largost proportion ever reported, tends to
depress prices further. Oats and pork pro
ducts are unchanged, oil three-eights
higher, but coffee three-eights lower. A
drop of an eighth in cotton puts, the price
down to 6.93 cents, the lowest for more
than forty years, and receipts continue to
exceed last year's, though this week ex
ports fall behind. All exports from New
York show a deorease for the month thus
far of about eight per cent. The outgo of
gold doss not entirely cease, though
sterling exohange has deolined to
$4.87x., for it is understood
that Austrian preparations permit a
small premium to be paid. ''lhe stock
market hat been unimuortant, at times
noisily advancing in some stocks but
quickly losing activity. Though money is
abundant, rates on call have slightly ad
vanced, and the market for commercial
loans is a little stiffer at most eastern cities.
The business failures occurring through
out the country during the last sevtn days,
as reported to 11. G. Dun & Co., the mer
cantile agency, by telegraph, number, for
the United States 230, and for Canada
twenty-six, or a total of 250, as conmpared
with totals of 240 last week, and 270 the
week previous to the last. For the corres
ponding week of last year the figures were
273, representing 234 failures in the United
Mtates, and thirty-nine in the Dominion of
Canada.
TJo CMuch "Ladying."
"One of the most maddening things on
earth," said a woman the other day, "is
the persistent 'ladyipg' I get at the hands
of the tradesmen," says the New York
press, "My butcher and grocar and fish
man are so hopelessly committed to this
form of address I expect no relief in their
cases, but why the clerks in the dry goods
stores are not taught better I cannot see.
It is so much more pleasing to be called
'madame:' the continued interpolating of
'lady' as I am making a purchase irritates
me to the verge of exasperation, and has on
a fw occasions driven me from a counter
without waiting to select the goods I
wanted." "Madame" is certainly more
digniliod, formal and general. It acn b3
applied to the oost youthful shopper who
ever matched samples or the elderly and
sedate purchaser of household goods.
"Leddy" always sounds so erintiun and se
tally. while "madame" is a term applie.i to
ostch other by the highest in the land, a fact
that should surely recommend it in these
days, when the assumption of inequality on
the pai t of the employer and employed is
resented as an insult.
Fell Flat.
The conversation flagged a little at a re
cent high tea hold within the select circle
of the 150, and one of the guests-a practi
cal joker by the way-said, facetiously:
"Evidently we are at a loss for a subject
to keep the conversation poing. Let us talk
about the genealogy of our families."
Strange to any the suggestion instead of
looseninug the tontnues of the company,
noted like the traditional wet blanket, and
the silence that followed became so thick
that it could have been cut with a butter
knife.-New York Press.

Remarkable Experience
of John Turk, a Pio
neer of Helena.
39 Doses Taken at Once Did
Not Kill, but Succeeded
in Curing Him.
john Turk, Cascade, Montana, took 39
doses of a so-called "San Francisco Qunck's
Medicine," at once, and was not killed,
as promised by tival doctors. In Septem
ber, 1889, he called on Dr. A. C. Stoddart,
visiting physician for Dr. Liebig & Co.,
Liebig World Dispensary, San Francisco
and Butte City, who had offices for two
weeks at the Merihants Hotel, Helena.
Mr. Turk had suffered for years with
Rheumatism, Impurity of Blood and effects
of mercurial Sailivation. He had four of
the best physicians in Montana attend him,
and they failed to relieve him. pr. Stlod
dart examined him, sent his prescriptions
to Liebig Dispensary, San Francisco. to be
prepared. After Dr. Stoddart left, Mr.
Tuark iet the local doctors and told them
what he had done. They laughed at him,
and said "that Ban Francisco quack would
kill him." He was so frightened that when
the medicine from San Francisco came he
'put the bottle upon a shelf at his house,
707 Park street, Helena, and it stood neg
leoted until December (nearly three
months) while Mr. Turk suffered day and
night, had not slept half an hour at a time
in years. Being in great agony late in
December, at midnight, his eve cauliht
