NEW YORK. Jan. 28?Today's stock
marke t showed signs of a struggle by
the bulls to sustain and sold while they
were taking profits. They wer- moder?
ately successful and sold large blocks
or the stocks, which have been r cent
spedulaMve favorites withcut producing
any mark-.d decline elsewhere in
list. Northern Pacific preferred is
only one of the recent favorites which
shows a net gain for today, but the de?
clines in the others were not sufficient j
to uncover any Iarg. number of stop
loss orders.
The sharp gains in special stocks at
-different times duting the day were ev
iivntly due ti> manipulation for the pur?
pose of sustaining the genera! market.
This, together with the higher range of
'prices reported from London this morn?
ing, kept stocks well abov- last night's
level during the early part of th- day.
but the closing showed an easy tone
with prices generally at the lowest. N-w

FOR ft MIDWAY PARK
On the Beach Overlooking
Hampton Roads.
A SPLENDID MARINE VIEW
Far Ahead i>f That or Any other Seaside
Locality In the United States.
Other Matters of
Interest.
Right on the heels of the numerous
rumors concerning railroads to be built
in the near futu'ie, comes a suggestion
Which is worthy of careful consideration
?by the people of Hampton and Newport
Netws. It !- that the two towns should
unite in an effort to acquire land for a
spacious and' handsome park on th?
beach overlooking the waters c?f Hamp?
ton Roads.
The wonderful advancement made by
Newport News and Hampton during the'
past eight years means that, unless it
should be unexpectedly checked, the
population will soon be double what it is
today. Including those who live in the
two towns there are, in round numbers,
oh'ut 40,000 people on the lower end of
thr Virginia Peninsula. The rate at
which the growth in population has
been going on during the time men?
tioned would increase the figures before
the close otE the first decade of the
t:w. ntieth century to S0.GO0. But this
addition in numbers is reckoned upon a
basis of underlying conditions similar
to those by which the section has been
environed sine, the beginning of 1893?
conditions which everyone will admit,
whatever the facts may be, were not
favorable to rapid urban growth.
Put let it l>e granted that Newport
?Nv wjs is to have the various important
improv ments foreshadowed1 by recent
events, and that it is to be connected
with Hampton and Old Point Comfort?
<o saiyi nothing of the prosperous farm?
ing ccction lying between this place?by
another electric railway, fringing the
b ach and affording to strangers the op?
portunity to view the finest raarine pan?
orama to be found In all this land, not
to mention the tame, the wide \\-.< hi
through, of the sPlen-iSd lmdy of water
spread out before th^m?w;-at then?
Th- plodding wayfaring focal might easi?
ly answer the question. An oil man
Who .i'it-d many years ago on u firm
near where Phoebus now stands, left b I
hitul a prophecy which, at the time it
was uttered, caused him to be colled a
crank. H.d d dared that th- day would
come when his rustic abodreinrife'i.he
in the mi.it.t ur a iltoih. ?^ ?
10 Eoewpurt tNCws. Some of those who
heard the oi l man's prophecy have lived
to s.e it partially fulfill* :?. Ten years
more under favorable circumstances,
will bring its full realization. Then
Newport 'News, Hampton and Pho bus
will be a town of nearly 100.C00 people.
What would so large and important a
city be without a park? Where could be
found a more charming and convenient
place for it than' the shore of Hampton
Roads? Would it not be wise to take
a lo<>k ahead and begin in the work
now? Ten yearns from this time ground
on the 'water front between the two
towns will u>e worth much more than it
is now. It will become so valuable that
the city could not afford to purchase it.
Already the beach section is attracting
th??? attention of rich tourists. A lady,
the wife of one of the wealthiest men
in th.- city of Baltimore, said, a few
weeks ago. while visiting Hampton,
that 'm .xtensive travels in nearly every
country in the world', she had seen n'
?place so beautiful. Before '.eaving her.
she 'bargained with a real ?State man.
Captain R. IH. 'Claih. ': n- . to purchose fat?
her several acres of land. Let the two
towns wake ?ip before they find them?
selves, like 'Norfolk, a city without -

LOOK PNG FOR OYSTERS.
Wanted1 a Meal That Wrould Digest
Easily.
Thv man was nearly six feet tall. In
his right hand he held an old-fashioned
satchel, the sides of which were well
bulged <?t. He had not shaved for Sev?
eral days and a stubby, iron gray beard
. overe.i the sides of his thin face. A
bunch of whiskers four inches long con
e:aled his phin. His appearance was
that of a man who did not feel -well.
The face was drawn and there xvas a
sort of convulsive quiver of the lips
when he spoke which inspired' pity. It
was plain to be seen that he was not a
town bred man. His gait, his manner,
his apparel indicated a rural vocation.
He had just crossed th- Mill Creek
bridge and was trudging wearily on to
wa?;'di the business section of Phoebus
when the writer mit him.
"Good mo'tnin'," said he, placing his
baggage on the ground.
"Glo-J morning, sir."
"Is there a eatin' house nigh her*
where a body can git a oyster stew?"
"Oh, yes. But you look worried. Atv
you sick?"
"I ain't feelin' well: and that's why I
want oysters. You see I'm from Inji
anr.y and I've be n to Xno York to see
some kin folks tip there. I went upon
the keers and ?. ome back on that dern
id thing you see goin' out thar," point?
ing to an Old Dominion ship on her way
to Norfolk.. Last night ? I thought, I
were dead, certain, I were that sick.
I haven't had no sleep nor nuthin' to
eat sine-. I left Noo York, an' I thought
I'd try some oysters, as they is said to
be easy on a w-ak stomach. I think
that's an awful foolish way to travel.
Good day."

THE KANSAS HORSE.
rctfartiiR and BucepUaltM lleouted to Mo
Natives of the Plains.
"Speaking of the record of Joo Pat
chen the Kansas horse, do you know,"
said a Kansas horseman and real es?
tate agent, "that Kansas Is the great?
est natural horse country In the world?
Talk about Arabia! Why, it simply
wasn't in it with Kansas. If you could
trace back the ancestry of all the not?
ed horses of the country you would
run 'em back finally to this country.
It's the climate and water that gives
'em the wind and speed."
"How about Pegasus" asked a sal
low-complexloned, professor-looking
man, who wore spectacles and talked
with a Boston-bean accent.
"What was his stock?Hambletonian
or Kentucky Whip?" asked the Kan?
sas horseman, who hadn't heard of Pe?
gasus, and was evidently sparring for
wind.
"Pegasus," replied the professor, as
he deliberately wiped his spectacles
"was the noted flying steed captured
by Belleropbon, the son of Glaucus,
while quenching its thirst at a cele?
brated spring."
"Oh, yos," said the Kansas horse?
man, brightening, "recollect all about
it now.. That spring was down hero
at Geuda. Sumner County. Best water
for horses I ever saw. Wild horses
used to come 100 miles to drink that
water. Didn't know that feller Beller?
ophon personally, but heard of him
often. Think I met him once when
he was bringing up a herd of horses
from Texas. Boys used to call him
'Beller' because he talked loud. You
could hear him all over town when
he called for a drink. He was some?
thing of a blow, but he knew the
points of a horse, all right."
"How about Bucephalus?" asked the
professor as soon as he recovered
from h.s first shock of surprise.
"Don't just-call the horse to mind,"
said the Kansas horseman, knitting his
brows in thought. "When did he
make his record?"
"He was the wild horse that was
broken to ride by Alexander, after he
had thrown the most expert eques?
trians of Philip's court," responded the
professor with an expression that
plainly indicated "I have him now."
"Why, of course," said the Kansas
horseman. "Ought to have remember?
ed that before. That horse used to run
in a herd that ranged between the Pan
Handle and where Wichita is now.
Used to range down on the Peavine
Bats, in Sumner and Harper Counties,
nearly every summer. Seen him many
a time. No question but what he was
born down in the southwest part of the
??ct?a fiifftie" lau"." cume uown to nia
knees, and when he smelled danger
you could hear him snort half a mile.
That fellow Alexander that broke him
?let's see? what was his first name?
Why, sir, he could ride anything that
wore hair, but he mighty near had to
give in when he struck the horse. I
understood that he told some of the
boys around town that he would't
tackle another job of that kind for a
hundred dollars. As I was saying,
there is just no end to the wind and
nerve of a Kansas-bred horse."
But the professor from Boston was
not there to hear. He had given up
the unequal contest and fled.
Marshall P. Wlldor's Stories.
This is Ezra Kendall's latest: A
stutterer was abusing another man ter?
ribly. He cursed him unmercifully in
a way peculiarly his own. The abused
man stood it as long as he could, then
turned on the otammerer and said:
'?You take that back, or I'll kill you."
"D-d-on't. m-m-make m-me t-t-take
it b-b-back. It t-t-took m-m-me half
in h-h-h-h-hour t-to s-s-s-say it."
Dan McAvoy, of MacAvoy and May
s telling this story: A German rooter
:ook his wife to a baseball game. At
jne stage of the contest cries of "Foul!
Foul!" went up from the crowd.
"Fritz, vere is der fowl?" asked the
wife.
"In der air."
"I don't see any fedders flying."
"No, mein dear, dis is a picked nine."
This from Edward M. Favor: Two
irishmen were cleaning a window in a
:all building. To facilitate their work
they had stuck a board out of the win?
dow and Pat stood on the end of it
which was outside, and Mike on the
snd inside to balance. Suddenly Pal
shouted:
"Moike, I've dropped me sponge."
"That's all roight I'll go down and
git it."
When he got to the street he found
Pat in a heap on the sidewalk and ex?
claimed:
"Well, well! How did yez git down
here so quick, Pat? I ran all the way
down, but bedad, yez hov beaten me."
Glazed Brick.
The manufacturers have so Im?
proved in making fine, smooth brick
that the glazing process, which is very
simple and inexpensive, has come
largely into use, as the product, is
scarcely inferior in appearance to the
enameled tiles. These glazed brick
have many advantages over the en?
ameled, as the glazing is part of the
very brick itself, the green brick being
dipped in fine clay and coated with
salt before firing; whereas enameling
is applied to the burnt brick. These
glazed brick are impervious of moist?
ure and proof against atmospheric
acid a.
A Sanitary nthie.
A sanitary Bible for the nse of court?
rooms has been put on the market.
It is bound, with white celluloid in?
stead of leather, and it can, therefore,
be washed and disinfected from time
to time. One of these Bibles is In use
in the mercantile department of the
Board of Health of New York city.
