Today's advance was preceded by a severe reaction, the market dropping from 3 to 11 points as a result of incor rect reports of the court decision by the news agencies operating in the financial district.. Publication of the Associated Press summary effected a rapid -readjustment of - alues, the market rising almost stadily in the last two hours, when rails, hitherto backward, also made material gains. Trading was in largest volume of any session in many weeks, aggre gating 1,750,000 shares. Other developments included a mod erate reaction in foreign exchange, an easier trend to call money, another $2,000,000 gold shipment from Canada and engagement of $1,250,000 gold from South Africa, via London.

Not content with washing up hundreds of thousands of crabs, lob sters and clams, the great tide recently dug an ancient oceanic relic out of the f sands and left it to cleach in a win ter's sun. like some skeleton of a de parted dinosaur. According to Capt. Joseph Meade of the Rockaway coast guard station, it is an old eloop-o'-war. Nobody knows its history. From all appearances this washed out corpse in an ocean graveyard was once a saucy war vessel, mounting nine guns, in cluding the old-time bow-chaser that used to bark with ferocity at pursuing vengeance. The ship is bluff-bowed, her spikes are handwrought, her ribs are of stout oak and her bowsprit, broken short at the cap, is a mighty headstone on a sandy grave. The old salts who are experts on such matters say the. buried hull is an old British sloop. During the war of 1812, privateers manned by adven turous Yankees frequently hung about Jones' inlet, towing in their prizes for anchorage and running to shelter when British men-o'-war, out for re venge bore down upon them.
