vEW YORK. Dec. 27.?Money on call
steady at 2U@V4 per cent.: last loan,
2% per cent.; prime mercantile paper,
3%: sterling exchange, dull and eas?
ier,' with actual business in bankers'
bi?s at 4.S4V?@Vi for demand, and at
4.ii%@4.S2 for sixty days: posted rates,
4i2%@4.S5; commercial bills. 4.S1: bar
silver, 59%: silver certilicates, 59%@60%;
ilesican dollars, 46%: government
bonds, firmer; State bonds, strong:
/railroad bonds, strong.
NEW YORK, Dec. 27.?Stocks were
strong and higher today with business
well distributed. The improvement in
railroad quotations from 1 to 2 points
generally and even greater in the spe?
cialties. Shifting of speculative ac?
counts and profit-taking were at times
responsible for fluctuations downward,
but the tone throughout was confident.
Among the many reasons to account for
this were favorable traffic statements
for the third week in December, espe?
cially St. Paul, where the gross increase
tos over $175,000. Saturday's good bank
statement and continued ease in the
money market. Moreover the advance
in Americans in London had a stimulat?
ing effect though in the latter there was
moderate selling in that quarter in ad?
vance here. There was a continuation
of the tendency to discount January
?dividend disbursements, larger pro?
portion of which will remain in this
country than hitherto, because the ab?
sorption of large blocks of internation?
als formerly owned abroad. The
grangers were more largely traded in
than of late at advancing prices. Rock
Island making an extreme advance of
three points; St. Paul. 1%, Burlington
1% and the others a point each. Or?
ders to buy accumulated over the holi?
days caused a wide opening in Ameri?
can stocks. American steel and wire
stocks rose about eight points each, and
retained the greater part of the ad?
vance. Federal steel, also B. & O. com?
mon and preferred was up over two
points and eased off somewhat. Peo?
ple's Gas and Brooklyn Transit were
very strong, the latter on the theory
that there would be an announcement
in January of the consolidation of com?
peting lines. Sugar Refining was an
exception to the general strength be?
cause of the reported complications in
the trade due to sales direct to the re?
tailers by the independent companies,
and a reduction in the price of the re?
fined article. The stock lost about three
points at the opening: rallied slightly
and closed a little above the lowest.
Several of the minor industrial special?
ties" displayed strength especially leath?
er preferred and lef^l. Other stocks
whose advances attracted attention
were Norfolk and Western: Pittsburg,
C. C. C. and St. L., the Pacifies, Met?
ropolitan Street Railway and Bay State
Gas. The closing was strong, slightly
under the best, aggregating transac?
tions having reached nearly a million
and establishing the largest total for the
? al sales of stocks today were 951,

DULUTH, MINN., Dec. 27.?Urs. W. j
L. Borgland today shot and killed Peter I
Hanson, a tailor, and then cut her own I
throat but wajs not effective in her own
case and will probably recover. Mrs.
Borgland is a widow forty years of age.
She kept a number of boarders, among
whom is Hanson, who is her cousin. He
is thirty years old and ten years her
junior. The widow was wildly in love
with him. Hanson paid attentions to
her. but later has been devoted to a
younger and fairer woman.
Horrible Suicide.
(By Telegraph.)
CHICAGO. Dee. 27.?Louis Slick, of
1904 North Marshfield avenue, chose a
unique and horrible method today to
end his life. He lifted a lid from a
stove and held his head against the
glowing coals until he burned so se?
verely that he was rendered uncon?
scious. He was found a few minutes
later by his wife and eight hours later
he died without regaining conscious?
ness.. Slick was fiS years old and was
formerly a harness maker.
What Sfco Would Want.
"And when we are married," said Iis
beautiful young girl to whom the aged
millionaire had just proposed, "will you
give me everything I want?"
"Everything, my charmer," replied
the old man in .an ecstasy of delight at
this intimation that she would surren?
der; "everything that you can ask."
"If I could believe you," she said,
doubtfully, "I would not hesitate a min?
"Why should you doubt me?" he
"Oh, because of the chri-acter of the
request I would make," she answered.
"You mean well, but I'm afraid you
might back out. You see, the first thing
I should ask after marriage would be
for a divorce and alimony."?Chicago
Two Babies.
Mrs. Nevroia?Oh, I wish you could
see Mrs. Winkler's baby. It's perfectlj'
lovely! Such a delicate, sweet littla
creature as it is! It's a perfect little
cherub, with the loveliest eyes, the
sweetest little mouth, the cunningest
little nose, and eyes of heavenly blue.
It looks as if It just dropped from Heav?
en and every tiny feature had been
fushioned by the angels.
