MARKET IN DULL RUT
Further Evidence That It is in Hands of the Professionals, SLUGGISH FLUCTUATIONS OF PRICES No Significant Attached to the Veryj Heavy Tone Which Prevalled Slump in Copper The Total Sales and Closing Quotations. (By Associated Press) MOW YORK. April 13.?The stoel; market today gave further evidence of Its restriction within professional limits and felt Into a dull rut In which little significance is attached to ths sluggish fluctuations In prices. Thc| tone was heavy as Is almost Inevita? bly the case In a profoundly dull mar hot. An unofficial announcement wasl made In New York that the selling| agency of the principal copper pro? ducers had marked down the sellingI price or copper, thus conforming to last week's* successive reductions In lite London market and at the New York Metal Exchange. For thlsj reason Amalgamated copper was a leader in the early downward move? ment of prices. Railroad traffic of? ficials roporled that ?there was no change in conditions and there was 'i disposition to postpone the date of the! expected revival. The same was true of advices on the commercial situation, and complaints were hoard from some centers of a relapse Into somewhat critical centers In trnde. The approach of the ICaster holi? days was a repressive factor in till] speculative markets. Crop pros? pects began to loom up as a more effective influence on the market. Bonds were steady. Total sales, par value. $3.872,000. U. S. bonds] were unchanged on call. Total sales todav 354,000 shares, Including: Cop-1 per 30.700; Sugar 700; C. & O. C00: N. & W. 100; Bending 73,700; U.

Anecdotes A The Widow. "Kudyard Kipling, when ho dine i with me," sold a Ittorary Cutcagoau, "told tue about Simla. "It seems that .Simla la up In the mountain .?the hllle, aa they aay in India?and the ladlea go there In the tiot weather to escape the heat of tto low country. "W'di. Kipling said thai one lovely, cool morning at Simla, ho was pre? sented to a ?grass-widow," 'i tiey call those ladlea 'grasswldows' whose husbands arc detained by work in the hot cities of the plains. 'She was awfully pretty and charm? ing, and as they talked together m the pleasant and coolness Kipling said: ""1 suppose you can't help think? ing of your poor husband, grilling down below.' "The lady gave him a strange looa. and he learnt afterwards ttint she was a real widow.' A Fine Distinction. "Don't confuse," said John Kins, the well-known aposlllo or the unem? ployed, the. other day in Wnsluug ton. 'don't contuse the hobo, the tramp and tho bum, for these men are very different one from another. "Tho hobo," Mr. Kills went on. "wprks and wandicrs. The tramp dreams and wanders. The hum drinks and wanders. "This man, for Instance, would not be a hobo. "He rang the bell or a suburuan house, and when the master appear? ed ho said, earnestly: "'Could you, air, lor the love Oi heaven, give a; hardworking but un? fortunate muu some employment. "Tho bousehohVer laid his hamt (tordlnlly on tho other's ragged shoulder. "'Here's work for you right on tho spot," he said. 'I've got out In my back yard a great pile of wood that ? " 'Thank you, sir,' aald the man, as he shook the hand trom tno shoulder gently, 'I'll lot my trienu know at once. It's not for myself I'm hunting a Job, but for a friend a little -way up the road.'" Nothing to Get. Gelctt Durgess wns talking at. a theatrical supper In New York about tho Yurk, his delightful little patter that railed. "Nearly all good papers fall," said he. "I have an aged friend who runs a splendid paper in u small western village. The last copy my iriena sent mo had this etlltorlnl paragrapu marked in blue pencil: " 'Burglars entered our house la"t night. To the everlosting shame t f the community, for whose wcita.ie wo have labored thiity-elgbl year.-t, bo It said, they got nothing.' " The Nasty Gourmand. George W. Hector, at the laicullus Club's aiiperb S20-a-plato dinner in New York, said (firing the terrapin course: "Tho gourmet Is a connoisseur ot foods and wines. The gourmand Is a low glutton. "It was. for Instance, a gourmand ? never a gourmet?who rencned ins home at :; o'clock ono morning to flna himself locked out. "He rang and rang, and at last hie wife protruded her head from an up? stairs window. "'You can Just go away,' sho said. 'I'm tired' of this. You shant get In tonight.' " "But, my dear," hiccoughed tue husband. '1 have brought home a broiled lobster and two bottles or chanipntgiie.' "'Oh,' said the lady. In a mollified tone. And she came down and open? ed the door. " 'I'll make a light, dear," she sairt, leading tho way 'through the darn hall toward the dining room. "And then she turned on the elec trie current aud, looking at hor hus? band, frowned. " 'Bu\t wlsen,' sho cxclainiodi, '13 the lobster and champalgnev "'Mere,' sold the man, with a coarse laugh, striking hlmscir on Hie atomach." To Temper the Wind. A mot of Dr. Weir Mitchell, the fa? mous poet and novelist, is going the rounds or tho Franklin Inn, a literary club of Philadelphia. On a particularly blustery March morning, tho ?story goes. Dr. Mitchell walked round CJty Hall Square with a young editor. As the two men held on their hata and leaned against the blast. Dr. Mitchell said: "X think' a shorn lamb should be kept tethered hero, don't you? Provt dence then, might Iks induced to tem? per tho wind." The Two Versions. "Frederic Courtland Pentleld, who has Just married Mrs. Anne Welgm man Walker, 1?, perhaps, the lending authority on modern Kgypt,' said an Egyptologist of New York. "Mr. Pentleld) Is also a superb raconteur. At tho Manhattan l;iuo, ono night ho contradicted, in m hearing, aorac story of other about modern Egypt, saying that the Btory reminded lilm 111 ttu lalsily of an occurrence in tue Alna. "Ho was tourlug the ttciiuse Uher land. At tho Hear Hotel, In Orinclo land, a mountatneor Bai In tlio linn, a glnsn of beer before htm, nnd hl? foct.

FOUR HUNDRED MONKEYS TRY PIRACY AT SEA Released, They Overrun Ricging for Two Days, Hurling Belaying Pins at the Crew. PHILADELPHIA. PA.. April 13.?An exciting adventure with monkeys who to tho number ot four hundred, rang? ed over tho Bhip, hurling belaying pins nnd other missels at the men Is the story brought In by tho crew of the British steamer Braunbelu, which has arrived from Calcutta. The ship carried a cargo of assorted Junkie folk, and the escape of the monkeys wns brought about by Liz? zie, n mascot baboon of tho BrauufolH. Lizzie, who had the freedom of the vessel, on March 11 made her way be? tween docks-, whore the monkeys were confined, and liberated four hundred of tho six hundred, which wero In n large cage. The monkcyn took to tho rigging nnd for two days there was no rest among tho ofHcors or crew. According to the men tho monkovs, led by a wiry tailed specimen, fre? quently rushed down on the decks, picked up a belaying pin or other handy objects, which they wonhl lei fly whenever an officer or sailor walk? ed ncros?? the deck. Finally Captain Weitman obtained a large quantity of molnssos, mixed with. It three quarts of strong brandy nnd putting It In pans, placed It about the docks under the ringing, wliero the monkeys hnd congregated. Attracted by the sweet odor from tho pans, the monkeys lost no time in making for the pnn? nnd stalled to devour the contents. Soon there were four hundred monkeys stnggerlng around the decks. This ended the trouble, for as soon as nny showed signs vof stupo-- th" animals wore picked up\ two o>- thre? at a time, nnd placed back In tho cages', where they sobered up In n day.
