THE MOBtftNX TIMES. -STENT DAT, JAKUATRY 31, 1897
IT Daily Times Romances m THE COWARD By CHARLES B. LEWIS, (a spirted story of the olden times in Salem, the hero falsely accused of cowardice on a whaling trip), will be continued in The Times tomorrow. It will be followed by "A DAMAS CUS NIGHT " a romance 15ased on the Turkish massacres, by author of "Under Summer Skies," "Pictures in Song," etc., and well known as a traveler in Oriental lands. A most characteristic sketch of New England life, "SERENA ANN'S FIRST VALENTINE," iias been writ ten for us by FIARY E. WILKINS, author of "A Humble Romance," and "Pembroke," and best known of American women writers. Miss Wil kins' strong yet delicate literary art is shown at its best in this charming little valentine story. "MY COMRADE THOMPSON; OR, CUBA LIBRE," by OWEN HALL, is an exciting tale of adventure, portraying the circumstances of a Rev olutionary expedition to Cuba. The Hon. Hugh H. Lusk ("Owen Hall") has gained a wide popularity by his ro mances of travel and adventure in nearly all countries of the world. In harmony with the season, "AN AFFAIR OF THE HEART," by AMELIA E. BARR, author of "Jan Yedder's Wife," "A Knight of the Nets," and many other popular novels, is a typical love story of English life. "UNDER FIRE," by DUFFIELD OSBORNE, aiithor of "The Spell of Ashteroth," is the record of a romantic adventure in the south of France, in which a young American traveler, a pretty American girl, and the artillery divis ion of a French army corps at target practice, are the leading characters. The widespread interest in the wonders of the new science makes es pecially timely the story entitled "THE RAINBOW OF ADAMANT," by CHARLES KELSEY GAINES, whose tales of pseudo-science have gained popular success. In this story an extraordinary scientific experiment plays a prominent part in the romance of two young persons. But little less popular interest is now being given to the development of the girl of the period in her various types. In "LLANFIHANGEL SKER RIES," the next story on The Times' list, GRANT ALLEN has set himself the task of giving a faithful character portrayal of the English university girl. Can YOU AFFORD to miss The Times? Can YOU AFFORD to be without Th Times? OF SALEM," The Family Doctor As we are at present experiencing a siege or typical winter weather, with its accompanying snow and slusli.it behooves all ot us to exercise the strictest regard for the laws of health and hygiene. The in crease or lung and throat trouble that in variably follows such a period proves con clusively that we have been negligent in not donning sufficient apparel to shield us from the cold, or have permitted damp or wet feet to go unheeded. Too much stress cannot be laid upon the necessity of thorough protection for the chest and throat, especially when facing cold, pene trating wind. The feet, too, should be encased In woollen hose, thick-soled shoes and high rubbers. A strict observance of these apparently trilling rules will prevent much illness and suffering. 11. B. S. Am suffering from chronic con stipation; health otherwise good. On retiring take a ptllconiposedof strych ina sulphate, one-twentieth grain; aloen, one grain, and extinct of belladonna, one-fourth grain. A.

II. Toner My nos-e is constantly filled with dry, hard crusts. Mj sense of smdl is very much blunted. Sense of taste somewhat affected. "With an atomizer spray your nostrils with Loracic acid, grains, ten; listerine, c:te ounce, glycerine, two drams, and dis tilled water erough to make four ounces. At night lubricate the parts with menthol, grains, two; vaseline, half ounce. Harry, 8. It. Mj father died of con sumpt'on when lie was forty-two years old. 1 am eighteen, and weigh 118 pojiuls. Do you think I will ultimately die of the same malady? Not necessarily so, bj any means. Court sunshine and fresh air; be temperate in your habits, and there is no reason why jou should not live to a ripe age.

You may continue to cat the crackers, but discontinue the coffee, and your in somnia will disappear. Geo. II. II. How high may the tempera ture ot a sleeping room bo kept, and still be healthful? A comfortable temperature for a sleep ing room is G5 degrees. Mrs. H. M I use malt extract Tor my health, and give some to my children. Is there any danger of its leading to intem perate habits?

You should have your lungs tested. The symptoms are of grave importance. "Watchman I am nervous and losing flesh. I don't get more than four hours' sleep out of twenty-four. Your nervousness is due to loss of sleep. Ton should take at least eight hours' sleep in twenty-four. An hour before retiring take three grains each of bromide of so dium and bromide of potassium.

I work out-doors, and am exposed to the wind. Take of Dover's powder twenty-four grains; sulphate of quinine, sixteen grains. Have it made into eight capsules and take one three times a day. Applicant Insurance companies employ their own physicians to examine appli cants for insurance in their companies. Mrs. L. T. My baby is only four months old and has four teetli already. Bo you think they came too early? Xot at all. Some children have teetli at birth. Ashman, jr. I am nervous and very ex citable. I smoke ten to fifteen cigarettes each day.

B. A. I am subject to frequent at tacks ot heartburn. "What causes it, and what will stop it? It is due to hyperacidity of stomach.

Hardships of the Union Army After tlieBattle f'tlio "Wilderness. Gen. Horace Border draws the follow ing picture of wartime experiences in his "Campaigning wlttiGrant" in the February Century: On May Grant wrote to Hal lock: "We have had five days' almost con stant rain, without,any prospect yetof its clearing up. Theroadshavenow become so impassable that ambulances with wounded men can no longer run between here and Fredericksburg. All offensive operations must necessarily cease until we can have twenty-four hours of dry weather. The army is in the best of spirits, and feels the greatest confidence in ultimate success. The elements alonenave suspended hostilities." In theTYlldernessthcarmy hadtostruggle against fire and dost; now it had to contend with rain and mud. An ordinary rain, lasting for a day or two, does not em barrass troops; but when the storm contin ues for a week, it becomes one of the most serious obstacles in a campaign. The men can secure no proper shelter and no com fortable rest; their clothing has no chance to dry, and a tramp- of a few miles through tenacious mud requires as mucli exertion I as an ordinary day's march. Tents become S h ifffi IIS tlwl w saturated and weighted with water, and draft-animals have Increased loads and heavier roads over which to haul tueiu. Dry wodd cannot be found; cooking be comes difficult; tho men's spirits are af fected by the gloom, and even the most buoyant natures become disheartened. It is much worse for an army acting on the offensivo, for it lias more marching to do, being compelled to move principally on exterior lines. Staff officers had to labor day and night during the present campaign in making re connaissances and in cross-questioning na tives, deserters, prisoners and fugitive ne groes, in an attempt to secure data for the purpose of constructing local maps from day to day. As soon as these were fin ished they were distributed to the sub ordinate commanders. Great Confusion arose from the duplication of the names of houses and farms. Either family names were particularly scarce in that section of the State or else the people were united by close ties of relationship, and country cousins abounded to aconfusingex tcnt. So many farm houses in some of the localities were occupied by people of the same name that, when certain farms were designated in orders, serious errors arose at times for mistaking one place for another. MODERN LOUIJYING. JIow Corporations Pnt Up and Get Protection in n Legislature. The editor of the Review of Reviews says that the system of lobbying so prevalent in "the good times after the war" is being abandoned. "Corporations," ho says, "have found a much better way. It was alwajs offensive to the moral sensibilities ot the good deacons and elders and ves tiymen who make up corporation boards, to hire vulgar lobbyists and set them at the direct task of paying brilics to mem bers of the legislature. It was not only an unpleasant thing to do, but it was somewhat unsafe, because it was a peni tentiary crime. Under the newer system, a certain sum, we are assured, Isset aside by certain cor porations tobe contributed to the campaign funds ot th" leading parties. This is to in sure theelection of worthy men to the legis lature, who can be relied upon not to pass foolish laws adverse to tho'-e great busi ness Interests which the silly public ought to recognize as its truest benefactors. Such funds, it is declared, have.in the State ot New York, been given in part to the Republican organization, and in part to the Democratic organization, so that the men elected from Democratic districts might be reasonable and rightminded men, while the men elected from Republican districts might be possessed of similar virtues. Inasmuch as a hostile and wrong headed legislature might divert millions of dollars from the Incomes of these great corporations to the pockets of an undeserv ing public, it can readily be seen that the companies can well afford to pay a large price for the certainty that men after their own hearts shall be elected to the legisla ture. TAD AND THE GOATS. Notes of the Great Lincoln Touching Certain Family Mutters. Leslie J. Perry contributes to the cur rent Harper's a paper on the home life of Lincoln, in w hlch several anecdotes are re lated concerning the pair of "White House goats' which were the especial property of "Tad"' Lincoln and the especial pets of the r resident. On the occasion of a visit to New York accompanied by "Tad," Mrs. Lincoln telegraphed her arrival thus: New York City. April28,18G4. Il-on. A L'ncoln, President United Suites: We reached here in safety. Hope you are well Please send me by mall today a check for $."jO, directed to me, care Mr. Warren Leland, Metropolitan Hotel, N. V Tad says are the goats well? Mrs. LINCOLN. And the President, in the face of the dreadful responsibilities of the war, found time to send the following reply: Executive Mansion, Washington, April 28, 1864. Mrs A Lincoln, Metropolitan Hotel, New York: The draft will go to you. Tell Tad the goats and father are very well especially the goats. A. LINCOLN. The goats appear to have been a source of considerable entertainment to Mr. Lin coln, for later in the same year he tele graphed this message: War Department, Washington, Sept. S, 18G4. Mrs. A- Lincoln, Manchester, Vt.: All well, including Tad's pony and the goats. Mrs. Col. Dimmick died night before last. Bob left Sunday afternoon. Said lie did uot know whether he should see you. A. LINCOLN. A PROLIFIC COMrOSEU. Mr. A. Tregina Has Written Sev eral New Numbers for the Piano. "Afterward," a transcription brilliante for the pianoforte, from the beautiful song by that name. Is the latest production of the gifted AVashington composer, Mr. A. Tregma, and is equally as charming as any of his long list of compositions. The piece possesses a gracefully rhythmic action, together with an artistic sparkle, that makes it extremely desirable for concert work. "Afterward" isthe third composition from XI r. Tregina in less than two weeks, and four others a re announced to appear shortly. "Camille" was tho first of the three, a bicycle song, in waltz tempo, followed by a march "The Commanding Officer," which the author has dedicated to Capt P. H. Harrington, iu command at the Marine Bar racks. This number lias already won many admirers, and has been rendered at two Monday concerts by the Marine Band or chestra. The Tape and the Ticker Yesterday was the most cheering day the market has seen In two weeks. There was a general advance in prices, and the market was active, and the tone of speculation strong. The bulls are jubilant, promising that we have seen the end of declines for several days, and that now again the market is on an upward turn. The advance was from one-halt to a point and a quarter. The causes of the good showing are probably almost entirely local, and there seems no reason to believe that a general and continued bull movement may be expected. A report of a close alliance with either the Northwest or thr Great Northern and the Northern Pacific had a strengthening influence. London bought NortiiernPaclficjrt both the common and the preferred. The advance in prices was also ascribed to the buying by shorts who dsslrjdto cover . Also a recovery of a cent in Wheat had a senti mental effect. The talk of the alliance with the Great Northern by Northern Pacific was probably based on the buying by Weilbrokers. Although Northern Pacific preferred lost most of its gain in tho clos ing hours of the day, dropping down 'from its highest point, 38 1-4, to 37 1-8, only three-eighths higher than the opening, the gain was still sufficiently marked. For whatever reason, trading In the market was ot a larger volume than for many weeks past. Discount rates abroad continue to grow easier, which accounts for the foreign support. One ot the sharps suggests that it the market holds over Monday it is in for a run. Monday it will be noticed, has been the selling day all through the month. It was on Monday, two weeks ago, that one quite healthy in- cipient boom was knocked in the head. The dividend otl 1-2 per centon Central Trust receipts for Chicago Gas stock will be declared Monday afternoon, payable February 25. Chicago Gas went up half a point yesterd-ty, closing at 78 3-4, the highest for two or three days and within 3-4 of a point of high-water mark, Jan uary 16. This rise Is due to the dividend and there is almost a certainty that the favorable effect of the announcement will continue tomorrow and that the stock will go up to 80. It Is confidently predict ed by the more sanguine bulls on Gas that immediately their dream of 85 and 00 will be realized. There will be a great deal of money made in Washington If Gas goes up after any such fashion. Canty s smiles are sunshine to these dun brown days on the street. He visits the Capitol frequently, and like Charlie Haven ner is a great friend of our statesmen It is whispered that several of the good things that he has had during the last month hae come directly by grapevine from the inner courts of the temple. Cer tainly Dennis gets large orders from the Capitol, anyway. Mundell, checker champion, gave the brokers several exhibition games at Slls by's two or three days ago. Your room trader frequently gets to be a great checker Ticnd. There are lialf a hundred men in the various offices about town who put up a stiff game. Chess is not quite such a general favorite, but there are one or two boards on the street, and this even morestudious game than checkers has its votaries, too. Silsby & Co. have sold out their Southern offices, a system or seventeen, reaching from here to Atlanta, to II. W Silsby, a brother of the Washington George W. Silsby, and George D. L. Hopkins, well known on the street. Mr. Silsby will devote all his time to his Washington office. Manhattan partook of the general rise yesterday and closed at its highest point, 91. Tiie rumor persists that the com pany is about to issue some security to fund its floating debt. .Manhattan does not seem the best stock in the world to be long Sugarclosedat 117 1-2, half a pointabove the opening. It was sold quite exten sively during the latter part of the session on the continued rumors that Congress is in for Sugar. There seems to be some disquiet among sugar refiners on ac count ot this rumored project to make sugar duty specific instead of ad valorem. Surely, though, It is too early to regard this move as more than a possibility and too early for this possibility to have any more than a fictitious effect. Town Topics Financial Bureau says; "The historical or any other blind man might see Miatthe market has grounded on rock bottom. What in the name ofcommon sense is the use of working for one-eighths or one fourths when points Innumerable may be made on the long side. Buy Reading. Don't be without Chicago Gas, General Electric, Chicago, Burlington and Qulncy and Omaha, Bull Manhattan." The local market during the week has been strong and. active, there being a good deal of general buying in addition to the trading in pneumatic gun carriag e. Gun carriage closed yesterday at 7-t. Lanston was hammered somewhat during the week, but kept up well, not going below G 5-8 About 500 shares have changed hands. There is a report that- an increased divi dend is quite possible In graphophone. There has been considerable buying, and the stock is up to 9 1-2. Bank shares have been active. Local brokers are optimistic, expressing the belief that the brisk times of the street for the last two weeks will be continued, and that the payijng stocks offering the good investment ot 4 1-2 to 5 1-2 per cent interest will be in demand.
