ly funny.
Last, but not least. Is the Thanhous
er film, "The Runaway," which depicts
the trials and tribulations of a small

Business In finnnclnl, commercial and
Industrial lines si completely prostrat
ed by tho events of the last few days.
Conditions, already extremely bad,
have been aggravated by tho troubles
In Europe. The negotiations for a big

ly about to bo brought to a success
ful issue, have been upset. The gov
ernment has again suspended specie

1 Receivers for American Railroad.
PEORIA, Aug. 1. ? Tho Chicago.
Georgia and St. Louis railroad went In
to the hands of receivers yosterday
evening. The admitted Impossibility
of securing money for the retire

meet a deficiency are given as the
cause for the receivership. The sud
den change in the business situation
is tho cause of the trouble.
Stock Exchange Experiences.
NEW YORK. Aug. 1. ? The New
York stock exchange has experienced
many exciting days In Its career which
begun in 1817, and several times Its
governors have felt that prudonce re
quired that It close. However, yes
terday's action was tho last since the
I nnouncement of the failure of Jay
Cooke and company, financiers of
j Western railroads among other things,
in 1873. It closed for 10 days at thnt
time. It closed several times during
the Civil War?Lee's Invasion of Penn
sylvania thnt terminated at Gettys
burg and Lincoln's assasination being
two of them.
Long periods of depression which
caused a heavy strain on the members
of the exchange were experienced In
1837, 1S57, 1873 and 1893, nnd again
In 1907. These were the result of com
mercial reactions from periods of over
; development and speculation.
Probably the most severe panic on
j the stock exchange in its history was
"Black Friday"?September 24, 1869;
when, from no apparent cause, values
! seemed suddenly to depart from every
; thing. The recovery, however, was
quick. The failuro of Jay Cooke and
that of Baring Brothers, of London,
in 1890. both caused panics that were
followed'by long periods of hard times.
The panic of Thursday, which caus
ed yesterday's suspension, resulted
from the unloading by foreign invest
ors of American securities, and n sym
pathetic movement on tho part ol
American holders.
