Tho football eleven of the Sixty ninth company. reputed as the strongest, football aggregation among the soldiers at Foil Monroe, proved easy for the Phoebus Athlcctls on tho Klondike gridiron yesterday at tornpon.

Ilrnd.-o-reel's already ordered, deliveries being very tomorrow will say holiday trade, now i 111 full swing, attracts most attention. 1 Business, which is of enormous pro- ! portions, bids fair u* eclipse previous records, a significant feature being the demand for high grade goods.- in other respects retail trade is irregu? lar, good In sections, favored by cold weather, but backward in the North? west and parts of tno South, where mild weather has restricted the de? mand for heavy weight wearing appa? rel. Business ill jobbing wholesale lines displays a slight falling off, but only by contrast with the activity prevail? ing early in the season. Filling in orders are of fair propor? tions and demand on spring account ia cropping up in a safe way. the best rcoorts coining from the Southwest. Industrial lines were never so active; and the labor situation so far as griev? ances are concerned,'seems to have Improved. Wages are still being ad- ' vnnced and the supply of help slill i continues scarce although the season ' for the comparative suspension of out? door activities is annroachlng. Cnr shortages still prevail, and it is; alleged that tlte railways are diverting' rolling stock from grain to other high-! or revenue paying freights. Coliee-' lions range from fair to good though \ the car shortage defers payments in various nnrls of the country particu? larly in the*northwest. In the South Atlantic states poor ?crop returns are responsible for con? servative buying, close scrutiny of credits, slow collections'and some re <pi"sis for extensions. Tho main anxiety in trade at pres? ent seems to be in getting the goods already ordered deliveries being very slow, owing to labor conditions at Hie mills.

It is very singular how the fact of n man's death often seems to give poo pie a truer Idea of his character, whether for good or for evil, than they have ever possessed while be was living ami acting among men.
