NEW YORK, Jan C Liquidation for

reported there, particular! in the nieri

The local stock market opened uniaor-J
ablj influenced bj this circumstance sud
bj the subsequent selling for foreign ac
Lount. which, with the course of the morn
ing, reached fairlj large proportions. Ap
prehensions of diplomatic difficulties also
appeared to pla some part in the London
decline. There was an absence of any im
portant news from the South fncan war.
The local situation showed no new impor
tant dcxelopments oer night part from
the selling for foreign accounts, the trad
ing was almost entire! professional, with
aggressie bear operations appearing in
arious quarters of the market.
Sugar Refining and Brooklyn Rapid
Transit were particularly heaiy without,
howeer, any particular news or gossip
attending the course of either stock In
the other lists declines, fa some instances,
were in excess of one point, the foreign
listed stocks being naturallj under par
ticular pressure
The bank statement showed an increase
in surplus resenes of $589,000. which in
creases the banks' surplus cash holdings
to 111.757 000
Actual cash holdings increased J2.S15.000,
of which 5504,000 wab in specie The loan
item increased $12107,000 which together
with the gam in cash caused an increase
in deposits of $S WS 000 The cahh item
was the surprising feature of the state
ment as according to the preliminary es
timates the bank appeared to hae lost

The weakness, or rather, the absence of
strength, during the past few sessions of
the market has been due largelv to fear
that Great Britain ma get into trouble

the situation is cleared before Mondaj a
reaction for the better should be witnessed.
The news in general during the week has
been favorable to the market and it seemsj
certain that it will continue so.

The Tederal Steel and the American
Steel and Wire securities were the strong
features of the market and nearlv the only
ones. Thej showed slight advances for the

clined during the entire session, even after
the statement appeared The official state
ment that the Tederal Steel directors will
meet on Tucsdaj and declare the dividend
on the common stock seemed to have a
good effect on these securities. Hints that
the directors would postpone the declara

culated in the Street jesterday and caused

TWO HUMAN FREAKS.

W i 1 1i a Locomotive V ! .
(I r m tin 't Iauis Mar)
A person who ha had manv vears e
periencc in hospitals was speaking the
other dav to a number of men interested
in medical affairs about human museum
freaks
Do vou know that the greatest l'timan
freaks in the country, in fact in the world,"
exclaimed the speaker, ' have nver been
exhibited in a museum or numbered
among a circus' attractions' Have jou
ever heard of the india rubber bov or the
negro whese heart was on "his right side,
or the man with a voice like a Iocomg
tive whistle'' Perhaps jou have heard of
at lean the last great personage. They
were really 'great personages' in their own
estimation and seemed to be glad that
thev were freaks "
None of the listeners had ever seen or
heard of the freaks
"Don t think for a moment that the
india rubber bo was made of rubber,"
continued the speaker, 'or that he could
twist himself into a knot. He looked I.ke
a schoolboj. He suffered from some form
of epilepsj, and when he had a fit he
would bounce up and down That's why
thei called him the india rubber bov "
"How high did he bounce?" was asked.
"I think about siv feet Some people
said he sometimes bounced higher, but I
doubt it."
"Did he have any control over himself
wnen he had a fit7"
"No. He never knew when or where he
would be stricken, and every time he
simplv bounced until he became evhausted
or unconscious
"The india rubber boj and the man with
the voice like a locomotive whistle one
time nearly frightened to death a night
clerk of a local hospital. A voung phvsi
sian made a tour of the country some
j ears ago exhibiting to medical associa
tions the India rubber boy and the man
with the peculiar voice. This physician
took delight in having fun at the expense
of his friends He was well acquainted
with the night clerk, and he selected him
as a victim for one of his pranks One
night, after he had exhibited his freaks
before a medical societj in this citj, the
physician called at the hospital to see the
night clerk. After talking with the clerk
for a few minutes, ho left the freaks seat
ed near a desk at which the clerk was at
work, and went into an adjoining loom to
await developments The physician had
some doubt about his plan being success
ful, as the man with the extraordinary
voice would only make a noise like a loco
motive whistle when under great excite
ment. The man, however, did what was
expected of him.
"Several times the clerk stopped work to
glance at his visitors, but their action did
not arouse his suspicions Soon the india
rubber boy's teeth began to chatter, and
tho lad assumed a crouching attitude. He
was preparing to spring. The clerk saw
the crouching fo n in front of his desk,
and reached for a stick on a nail at one end
of his desk. As the clerk grasped the stick
the boy bounded upward and came down on
his feet, only to shoot upward ,again. The
clerk raised the stick as though he intended
to hit the boy with it, and then the man
who could make sounds resembling a lo
comotive whistle became 'excited and
sounded a shrill blast. His voice would
have terrified anyone. The noise made by
the man and the boy bounding' up and
down in front of the desk were too much
for the clerk. He rushed from the room
and sounded a call for help All the male
orderlies responded to the call, and for a
time there was great excitement in the
place. The physician restored order by
making an explanation, but the clerk never
spoke to him again."

SOME FOREIGN CHEESES.

(From ilc Nm "Vork World )
The historv of cheese may be considered
as condensing the whole pistoral poetry
of the Vrvan race The mild and gentle
cow sacred still among the Aryans of In
dia, fell especially to the charge of the
women Our very language proves this
Our word daughter comes from the Sanscrit
duhitar meaning the milker from the verb
duo to milk Dug for teat, is doubtless
from the same
Chee&e making has been a feminine pro.
fession from the start and on some Eng
lish farms to this very day the money com
ing from the sale of the cheese is consid
ered as the special perquisite pin money,
of the wife England has long been fa
mous for the quantity and quality of its
cheeses America in a wholesale way H
destroving all the traditions of cheese Yet
though America makes cheese bv the
mountain load every vear there are not as
In England, France and Italy any locali

The reason is not far to -eek Our
eheee factoiies (ollect the milk of va
rious areas havinc different oi " and
peculiarities of pasturage
and mix them
striking thus an average, eatable indeed
but lacking character.
It has been proved that the qunlitv
depends on the pasturage Cow, dairy
maids and special methods of making have
boon taken fro-n Cheshire to another part
of England and the result was a product
verv different from the famous, Chsshire
cheese Cheddar too, which coires from a

there is no chemical counterfeit It smack-,
of the soil it breathes of the pisture
Bnc conies from a small district near
Paris and is a cream cheese of unrivaled
delicacy, but not casv to keep during warm
weather
Camembert, a cheese veiv similar though
coarser in Havoi, which is made m a larger
area in Normandie, has been steadily
pushing into favor
Pont 1 Eevque comes from Normandie
It is not as some might suppose merely
a camembert gone dry but is intentionally
made more solid and milder in taste, and
is 10 per cent more costlv j
Port du Salut is another cheese of the
ame order, but superior in Hav or to all
except true Brie. It costs about the same
as Brie, and it may take rank over that
as that was done over Roquefort, and as
Roquefort did over Swiss, which was the
first foreign cheese that ever really had a
hold on the affections of the merican
stomach
Roquefort, though its price vet is high
Is a rich cheese, more fond of lingering
on the breath than the others It is made
of goat's milk and the chiaro-oscura ef
fects in it are caused not by rusting It with
insertions of wire, but dropping into it
some handfuls of peasant bread
Gorgonzola not French, but Italian, is
more expensive than Roquefort, though Its
base is the same, namely the milk of the
goat. This cheese comes from the Milan
ese district of Italy, retains its aristocratic
richneos unspoiled by the democratic cli
mate of America, and is a good cheese to
swear by.
Wherein it differs from Limburger a
good one to swear at.
Parmesan, another Italian or Sicilian va- i
riety, has been kept lt0 years and found
still delicious and full of life and power.
