Round lots, llllc; sage, 11 Vi 12c; Jobbing c to lc higher; Liverpool, 49s. The egg market is still excited and un certain, though bothsNew York and western markets have declined sharply.

Flour has been ruling rather quiet for several days, with prices rather in the buyer's favor. Cash wheat dropped off a fraction In some of the principal cash wheat markets; said to be caused by lessened buying by the millers, and this niav depress the flour market. Mill shipment prices on spring wheat pat ents are at $4.104.50. Trade committee prices are: Spring wheat, clears, $3.10 3.65; patents, $4.104.75; winter wheat, clears, $3.453.90; straights, $3.604; pat ents, $3.904.40. The meal and cereal markets are steady and little changed, Corn was stronger on the rally In wheat, and the fact of a better export demand. The market here is quiet, but fairly sustained. Options on oats were a fraction easier, while trade In this market was dull. The supply on track here is small, but doubtless fully up to the demand, Hay continues quiet, with a full sup- t)lv at hand, especially of the lower grades. Straw rules dull, though offer lngs are only small. Millfeed is a shade easier. Hay, $814; fancy Jubbing lots, $lo16; rye straw, $916; oat straw, $6 8. The pork market Is easier on barrel pork, with leaf lard easier. Ordinary lard is unchanged. Boston packers have killed for the week a total of about 5,800 hogs; preceding week, 33,800; same week a year ago, 30,000. There Is a good movement of Boston-packed pork pro visions into export, when there are steamers to be had. The total value of these exports for the week was aboufr 205,000, preceding week, $135,000; same week a year ago, $122,000. The supply of beef coming to Boston has continued rather small, and It is noted that best steers are positively scarce, the arrivals running to only me dium quality. Quotations on beef are not much changed, though the best is firm: Very choice steers, 99Uc; good steers, 8c; light and cows, 7V48c; extra heavy hinds, llc; good hinds, 11c; light hinds, 9lc; heavy fores, 6c; good, 6c; light, 56c; backs, 78c; rattles, 2 6V4c; chucks, 6'7c; short ribs, 1012c; rounds, 89c; rumps, ll13c; rumps and loins, 1215c; loins, 1217c. The mutton market Is fully supplied, though about steady. Trade has been only fair, owing doubtless to the ex ceedingly bad condition of the roads, es pecially outside of the cities. A few early spring lambs have been In the market and sold from $7 to $10 each, veals are more plenty and rather easy. Poultry has not changed much. There Is a fair demand for choice, young tur keys. The best fowls are in good re quest, with choice chickens doing gwell. Turkeys, western, ll14c; northern, IS 4lSc; chickens, northern, 1218c; west- - - - , - , .1 m 1. ern, lUgJUtC; iowis, nonnern iresn, m 15c; western, 10l3c; ducks, 9i2c; geese, 10fll3c; live fowls, 11 12c. The game supply is now mainly in the hands of the dealers and Jobbers, with but little coming forward. A few sad dles of deer came in last week, Illegally shipped out of Maine. The condltior. was unsatisfactory. There has continued to be a pretty good request for apples, with a fair movement, considering tnat prices rule high, compared with other seasons. Quotations are firm, with arrivals only moderate. Potatoes have been in better supply, and prices are easier, sweet potatoes were very high Just after the storm and .old weather, but they are now down aealn. Aroostook and eastern Hebrons, 6063c; Creen mountains, 7073c; north ern white and Green mountains, 48 B5c: Jersey sweets, $22.25. Onions are pretty firm and selling at $2.252.50 per bbl for large lots, with jobbing lots at $2.502.75.

Lenten demand for fish is excellent, There has been a good trade In progress throughout the current month, and values have ruled high on both fresh and cured offerings'. The bulge In egg prices helps the fish trade considerably. It tends to Increase tho consumption of the latter, and rare )y Is the call tor fish more urgent at this ieason than it has been or late in tnis market. Fresh mixed arrivals for the week have aggregated nearly 900,000 lbs, being brought to port in 64 cargoes. Receipts of similar character at Gloucester ag gregate 762,000 lbs. With the exception or a few barrels from Nova Scotia the arrivals of salt macketal for the week have been from Ireland. There were 773 barrels report ed. Prices stand strongly around $17.fi0 18 for these offerings, and some deal ers, who believe tnat tne market war rants an even higher quotation, are holding out for more. Smoked herring are in good supply and sell for about 89c box, ex steamer. Canned goods are in fair request, and the advance recently noted on sardines holds. For one-fourth oils the quotn. tion is $2.622,75 case and three-fourth mustards bring $2.352.50. Frozen herring are in fair supply, and there Is a steady call for them for bait. Lobsters have been) scarce for some time. Recent receipts have brought about $20 crate. In CongreM. Washington, Feb. 22. The senate has passed the postofflce appropriation bill and has taln up the army bill. The house reached the last page of the naval bill. Washington, Feb. 23. Eulogies on tte late Senator Morrill of Vermont were de livered in tha senate and house. Washingt i, Feb. 24. The naval ap propriation iA passed the house. At tached to it was the senate bill which will make Dewey admiral of the navy. Washington, Feb. 25. The senate passed the river and harbor bill, 50 to 3. Mr. Johnson of Indiana attacked the president in the house, Impugning the motives of the executive's Home Market speech. Secretaries Long and Alger were criticized. Washington, Feb. 27. The house con tinued work on the army appropriation bill, but failed to complete it. Consider able animosity was developed during the debate. The senate began the consid eration of the compromise army reor ganization bill which had been agreed upon by the members of the military af fairs committee. No agreement to vote on the bill has been reached. Washington, Feb. 28. The house sent to the senate two more appropriation bills, the army and tho fortifications. The former carried about $79,000,000, and the latter, approximately, $4,700,000. The final conference report on the Indian ap propriation bill was also adopted. The senate passed the compromise army bill, 65 to 13. I'rnm'gen Rnnowed. Havana, Feb. 27. The banquet at the Tacon theater proved brilliantly success ful. Governor General Brooke and Gen eral Lee spoke. Cubans generally re gard the occurrences at the function as the most promising auguries of Cuban independence since the peace protocol was signed. The spectators called vociferously for a speech from General Lee. His remarks and those of General Brooke were translated for the benefit of the assembly. Both the American speak ers repeated statements of the military administration, chiefly along the line of assurance that the United States In tended to establish a stable government in the Island and then to deliver It to the Cubans themselves. These assurances were vociferously applauded. Consumption and Canaries. We do not in this paragraph allude to the islands to which people fly for the cure of consumption, but to the lit tle birds which sing songs to ua in their captivity, and are, according to Dr. Tucker Wise, a cause from which con sumption conies. This gentleman says that from his own observation he is of opinion that in many instances diseased cage birds, such as canaries, communi cate tuberculosis to a serious extent among human beings. As about 400, 000 canaries are reputed to be sold every year in the United Kingdom, and as it is stated that tuberculosis is cne of the most common diseases of birds, it does not seem unlikely that the canary may have considerable influence in the dis tribution of tuberculous infection. London Hospital. Accepted the Amendment.

A n especially dainty toilette which was seen in a recent issue of The Delineator is here por trayed made ct satin-faced, cloth in a pretty shade of seal-brown combined with velvet in a darker shade and satin applique's for decora tion. The waist, which is known as the piaa- mUJm tlBid he lower edge give a neut and stylish com- pletiou, and a belt of black satin conceals the joining of the waist and skirt. For school and every-day wear the dress may be de veloped in serco or plain or fancy cheviot, and machine-stitching will provide a suitable completion. Toilette of Satin. Satin-faced cloth in a pretty shade of eolden brown in conjunction with cream- white crepe de Chino was used for the de velopment of this toilette. Tho waist is an un-to-data mode and is especially suitaDie for slight flgurss. A distinctive feature of the waist is the plain whole back. Crepe de Chine was used for the yoke, standing collar and center-front, which pouches softly. L circular Bertha which extendi om the tops of tho sleeves eives the desirea broad-shoulder effect. The wrists are fin ished in points, and like tho Bertha, are trimmed with rufHings of black satin ribbon. A lielt of black satin ribbon encircles the waist. The skirt is a unique mode, circular in suapinc, and fits with sheath-litte close ness around the hips, while at the back an under box-nlait removes tho fulness. V elvet or cloth associated with silk in some con trasting shade will provo effective in a cos tume of this kind. Hoth these designs wero seen in a receui issuo of The Delineator. Open sleovos lined with a pretty color ara a delight to women wno wear siecvcs witn Vandvke waists, it is limy mat tne re newed liking for bracelets invites a return of sleeves not uuliko tne "anger draperies oi former years. A black gown of tho new crepe de Chine or an uttoman siik witn open sleovos lined with primrose pink or salmon satin is a charmmir combination. Cloth dinner gowns of a violot shade with pale-yollow and white accessories deftly com bined are seasonable nnd stylish. A ale mode in jacket and coat linings is satin in a slinde lighter than the outsido but of the same color. Kor black jackets the Domilar inside finish is white or black satin. White taffota and white China silk waists are favorites with young women. A bunch of violets, a chou of purplo satin or velvet placed at the left ot tne throat adapt them to a semi-relieious season. White barcco without lining is boing mado up for Kastcr wear over taueta silk petticoats of while or any evening color. Satin-bound ruffles of bnreire in three or five rows adorn the skirt; they may bo replaced by three or fivo rows of graduated satin pipings. Of courfe. the bodice is trimmed to harmonize. Sometimes it is satin with wrinkled barege sleeves or with morely a shoulder strap of ribbon tied at mo top. mom l he D hncator. A Clever Trick.

Her age is no bar to this desire, Her form does not prohibit thiscommendable ambition.

In them you see living, moving people who are habited in the latest wrinkles of Dame Fashion's decree. We are told that so simple are these gowns, that any experienced dress maker can construct them, maintaining all the details of the original designs. The series now appearing in the Boston Sunday Herald is ahead of all the fash ion papers, and will give readers an op portunity of making up their spring and summer dresses and underwear before the season's rush which follows the ap pearance of the spring fashions in the shops. You can see these fashion pic tures only in The Boston Sunday Herald. Gov. Roosevelt tells at hisown expense the story that when a small boy in an elocution class he tried to recite "Marco Bozzaris."
