NEW YORK. January H.-First prices
In the ?tock market today were mostly
unchanged, but the market soon de
veloped an Improving tendency under the
leadership of Union Pacific and Reading,
which advanced % and %, respectively.
Canadian Pacific also jumped 1% and
Minneapolis Si. Paul and Sault Ste.
Marie 1*.
Special stocks made considerable prog
ress upward, but the market generally
moved very narrowly and seemed to lack
effective leadership.
Canadian Group Bid Up.
The Canadian group was bid up con
fidently and -?everal other specialities that
have been showing recent strength were
also strong, but the movement in these
stocks did i.ot influence the general list;
Extensive buying of the American To
bacco securities revived gossip about the
forthcoming Judicial decisions.
In the outside market the stocks of con
trolled companies were strong and on the
exchange heavy buying of the 4 per cent
bonds sent them up 2 points, and the pre
ferred stock 1%.
Advances in lome Issues.
Elsewhere in the market operations
were conducted in a rather indifferent
manner. There were some good advances
In some of the less active stocks. United
Railways and Investment moved up 2%,
the preferred and Wisconsin Central 2
and Wabash preferred 1.
United States Rubber broke 1*. South
St. Louis western preferred 1% and Gen
eral E'ectric 1. Near noon there was a
decline In the standard stocks, Reading,
United States Steel and various other Is
sues falling slightly below yesterday's
Bonds were Arm.
Selling ceased after the market had
fallen back to about yesterday's close,
and the subsequent dealings were very
small and without material bearing <*?
NEW YORK, January 6.?The cotton
n.arket opened steady at a decline of 1
point to an advance of S points and
shortly alter the call showed a net gain
of about la4 points on a renewal of yes
terday's late covering movement and a
little scattering support inspired by re
duced estimates of the Indian crop, re
ports of an active trade in Manchester
and southern advices claiming a contin
ued good demand for export. But there
was no aggressive buying, add after over
night buying orders had been executed
the market eased off with business dull
and prices about net unchanged to 2
points lower.
Trade Interests appeared to be buying
a little March and May on the dips and
Mith offerings very light the demand
proved sufficient to impart a steady tone
to the market during tfce late forenoon
Prices at midday were about 1 point
lower to 2 points higher, early fluctua
tions having been within a range of i or
5 points.

CHICAGO, January 6.?disappointing
cables caused a setback today in wheat
prices here. Considering the big ad
vance on this side ajid not overlooking!
expected lightness of world shipments,
the response at Liverpool seemed dig
couragingly small. Paris also showed
only a trifling gain. Furthermore, casn
demand here was reported slow, not
withstanding activity northwest. The
opening was a shade lower to a shade
higher. May started at 90% to 99%, with
the same variation from last night as
the market as a whole. A decline to
99% followed.
Free country sales bore down corn.
In addition there was much profit-taking
by local traders. May opened a six
teenth. to %a% off at ' 49% to 49%
touched 40%a4?% and sank to 40%a49%.
Oats suffered from some pressure be
cause of the dtp in corn. May started
a shade under last night, at 34%, and
receded to 34%.
Provisions eased off a bit in sympathy
with grain. First sales were unchanged
to 5c lower. May pork going at 18-75 to
1&9(K May lard at 10.12% to 10.15 and
May ribs at 0.87% to 0.90.

Never lose sight of the fact that you have
your own way to make in the world and that no
one /eels disposed to help a man who does not
help himself.
It is very pleasant to be a 4'good fellow" and
spend money freely, but you will find many
more people willing to accept your generosity
than willing to help you when you need money.
Don't forget your own interests. Open a
Savings Account in some good bank and be sure
that you keep adding a little to it each week.
You will find that people esteem you a great
deal more if you have money in the bank, and
it will give you a self-respect that is a valuable
asset in itself.
