Kct- York, October 25. There is more
er less increase in the volume of goods dis
tributed at Boston, Memphis, Chicago,
Dubuque, New Orleans, Atlanta and Louis
ville, while at Philadelphia, DetroitjOmaha,
Kansas City, St Louis, St. Paul, Portland,
Ore., and San Francisco there has been
rather less activity noted in some lines, due
to unfavorable weather and farmers holding
ofTowing to low prices of grain, corn being
quoted at 12 cents per bushel in Iowa.
Louisiana and Georgia cotton-picking
weather is excellent. Cattle prices tend up,
while those for hogs are off some. The
Chins steamer service at San Francisco is
reduced from eight to six owing to Canadian
Pacific competition.
General trade at New York is more active
in groceries, countrv produce, furniture,
building materials, leather, boots and shoes
and fertilizers. The New York stock mar
ket has been irregular, high rates for money
part of the time operating against an ad
- vance, while plans for rehabilitating the
Missouri, Kansas and Texas and Chesa
peake and Ohio and the traffic agreement
between Union Pacific and Northwestern
had an opposite influence.
A YANDERBILT DEAL.
Directors of the Union Pacific state to
Bradstreet's that there is no alliance or
amalgamation intended, but admit that the
contract will give the Vanderbilt interest a
transcontinental system. Coalers declined.
Northern Pacific and Northwestern were
strong. The trusts were all weak and
lower.
Special telegraphic investigation of do
mestic money markets by Bradstreet's re
veal that funds were easy to-day at 49 out of
69 cities reported, important ones reporting
funds working close being Chicago, Balti
more, Cleveland, Toledo, Peoria, Dayton,
Birmingham, Ala., Cincinnati, St Louis
and Omaha. Mercantile collections were
reported slow or unsatis:nctory at 19 points,
chief among them the two Portlands, Provi
dence, Sacramento, Burlington, la.,
Grand Bapids, Detroit, Toledo, Troy and
Albany. It is also shown that collections
are improving, and while the current of
funds at the interior has not finallv turned
eastward, western sales of New York ex
change indicate that it is turning.
"Wheat flour is less active for export,
owing to lower offers and higher ocean
rates. "Wheat has been fiercely sold at
times, thv total at New York aggregating
70,000,000 bushels for the week. The recent
Government report, free movement of
spring, increasing supplies, bearish foreign
markets ana high and scarce steam freight
aided in depressing prices lltljc. A
rumored revision ot the late Government
crop report had some influence.
OTHER AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS.
Demand from Indian corn shippers and
short sellers send early deliveries up lllc
Later ones have varied little. Spot oats
are c higher on good demand. Exports
of wheat (and flour as wheat), both coasts,
equal 2.197,460 bushels this week, against
2,758,538 bushels last week and 1,827,346
bushels in the like week in 18SS. Total
shipments abroad Julv 1 to date equal
32,641,103 bushels this year, against 39,184,
458 bushels in 1888, and 55,800,000 bushels
in 1887.
Hog products are unsettled and price
changes frequent, notably at Chicago. Lard
advanced and closes firm, about 10 points
higher, and pork barely steady.
Aggregate domestic stocks of raw sugar
are only 85,300 tons, against 141,400 tons
August 14, when the highest figures o! the
year were reached, yet lack of inquiry
causes continued depression, and prices are
off 1-1GJbC Befined is not in active de
mand and is off JJ4c- The anti-trust
prediction of a decline of lc on sugar within
30 davs, threatened competition and in
creased supply of refined attract wide atten
tion. Louisiana's estimate of its suzar crop
is 25,000 hogsheads behind that of 1888.
Speculation in coffee is moderate and
prices leave off 1020 points lower and
weak. Experts and others are still revising
coffee crop reports. The distribution of
coffee is sluggish. Tea is fairly active and
prices steady.
THE DETGOODS TRADE. ,
Leading lines ot drygoods are more activej
at .Boston at urn ana secona nanas. At
New York trade is moderate, mail orders
constituting a prominent feature. Agents
report spring goods in active sale for future
delivery. Prices continue steady "in all
leading lines, and print cloths are l-16c
higher. "Wool is in slightly improved de
mand from manufacturers at steady prices.
Cotton is l-16c lower locally on heavy crop
movement, 5-16d at Liverpool and y5-16c
at primary markets.
Business failures reported to Bradstreets'
number 190 in the United States this week,
against 205 this week last year. Canada
had 26 this week against 41 last week. The
total of failures in the United States
January 1 to date is 9,132 against 8,074 in
1888.
B, G. Dun & Co.'s weeklv review of trade
says: The money market has become more
easy, with prospect that serious disturbance
this season is no longer to be apprehended.
The banks are running with narrow
reserves, and artificial stringency may
at any time be engineered,
but the movement of crops has been heavy.
In the natural course of events the return
of money to this center should soon begin,
and the possibility of a loreign war seems
imminent The Bank of England gained
last week S1.270.000,and the Bank of France
5230,000 gold. Securities do not appear to
be moving largely either way, while mer
chandise exports for three weeks showa gam
of 14 per cent over last year, against a gain
of 10 percent in imports. The rate of for
eign exchange has accordingly declined a
shade.
A UTILE STRINGENCY.
There is a little more stringency at Om
aha, less at Cleveland, and active demand
with conservative tone at Chicago, but oth
erwise the markets "West and South all re
port supplies adequate for legitimate needs.
Collections are unusually satisfactory at al
most all points, though Milwaukee notes
some tardiness, becanse farmers hold back
productsfor better prices. The volume of
trade, fair for the season at all points, is
greater than a year ago at most, though the
aggregate of bank clearings, outside New
lore, exceeds last year s by 2 per cent,
meetings have accomplished nothing beyond
fixing upon 3,000,000 tons as the output tor
November; sales are generally below the
schedule, stove at S3 90.
Liquidation in wheat continues, with
prices 3 cents lower than a week ago, and
salesof65,000,TXX) bushels here. Stubborn
facts, heavy receipts and scantv exports wear
out the patience of those who have had faith
in a world's famine, and State official reports
indicate a larger vield than those of the de-
Eartment Corn is three-eighths of a cent
igher. with sales of 5,500,000 bushels, and
the export movement still exceeds last year s.
Pork products are weak, and in hogs the de
cline has been 60 cents per 100 pounds.
Oil has risen 3 cents, coffee is unchanged
and sugar is again lower. Cotton continues
downward, receipts exceeding those ot the
same week last year by 40,000 bales, and ex
ports by 30,000 bales, and while there has
been a touch of snow in Virginia, the dread
ed frost in cotton States is still deferred.
' STOCK SPECULATION.
The market for securities has been weak.
in spite of relief in the money market and
some very favorable reports regarding par
ticular properties. The traffic arrangement
between union Pacific and Chicago and
Northwestern is thought to foreshadow an
abandonment of the so-called President's
Association, and an attempt to secure more
effective consolidation. Earnings are 10J
per cent larger than last year's for February
thus far. but the Pennsylvania statement
for September shows a very scanty increase,
and causes disappointment On the whole,
the speculative markets are not promising,
and are judiciously let alone by the public.
But the outlook for all departments of legit
imate business is more encouraging than it
has been for a long time.
The business failures during the last
seven davs number, for the United States
188, and" for Canada 37. For the corres
ponding week last year the figures were 222
failures in the United States and 32 in the
Dominion ot Canada.

A SALE OF SKULLS.
Auction of a Good Peruvian Collection
Mammies and Other Antlqolile Sold
at Ruinous Prices A Special-
, Ill's Collection Sold
for a Sons;.
tSTZCIAI. TELEQBJLM TO TUB DISrATCB.1
New Yobk, October 25. Mummies and
human skulls were sold this afternoon by
auction at the art rooms of George A.
Levitt & Co., on Broadway. The skulls
brought all the way from 12 to 60 cents
each, according to their state of preserva
tion. One lot of four skulls, in which the
lower jaw was lacking and which were
otherwise disfigured, brought 50 cents.
Another of six pieces, which was advertised
as a fine lot for museum or collection, was
knocked of! for a total of 3 60. Mummies
realized a cash value of from $7 to $9. An
imperfect one, wrapped in Guanaco robes
and wearing a crown, and which looked as
though it might once have been the body of
a Peruvian of influence, was bid off at $7.
Three others, each in sitting posture, with
the legs and arms bent and tied to the body,
brought from ?7 50 to ?9.
The skulls and mummies were a portion
oi a collection of Peruvian antiquities,
which embraced also fnneral vases, jars,
diotas, urns and battles, in terra cotta of
different colors and in all sorts of shapes,
though the gourd shape seemed to prevail.
The collection was gathered lrom the
necropolis at Ancon and the immediate
vicinity, by George "W. Kiefer, who devoted
nine years to the work, and whose hope it
was to dispose. of his collection entire to
some American museum. He, however,
contracted a disease in Peru which ended
fatally, a few months ago, and to-day the
fruits" of bis researches were disposed of
under the hammer.
The collection was one of the most re
markable ever got together, comprising
many curiously shaped vases which it is
believed cannot be duplicated in any mu
seum. Most of the more common articles
went lor a mere song, but some rivalry
sprang up when It fame to the mummies
and the rarer specimens of pottery. Prices
ranged from 2 cents, which was paid lor
each of four gourd rattles, such as might
once have tickled the fancy ot a Peruvian
baby, to $14 50, which was giveq in ex
change for a luneral vase ot oval Bhape,with
carvings that passed for ornamentations,
and which was found in a king's tomb. This
was bought by Charles Stiegerwalt, of Lan
caster, Pa., who was the largest purchaser of
the day. The collection was catalogued by
Ed Frosard, who found it no easy task, as
Mr. Kiefer left no notes of any kind in ex
planation oftthe various oddities.

condition, the former beinComoletelr coverea
with sores. 1 took him to tbe Messena Sulphur
Springs, but be did not improve any. I was
then advised to try the CUTICURA REMEDIES,
which I did. He took one and one-half bottles
of Cuticura Resolvent, when his skin was
as smooth as could be, and is to-day. I nsed
the Cuticura on his sores and the Cuticuba
Soap in washing him. He is now five years of
age, and all right The other case was a dis
ease ot the scalp, which was cured by washing
with the Cuticuea Soap and rubbing In the

One should think that this would be the first prinoiple of carws,
but, strange as it may seem, there are people who fromignorance'or J'.
neglect always try their level best to injure their own Interests. , ,!
Let's look at the people who buy clothing. The majority come'to
us, to be sure. But what of the minority? Those who, without stop-'
ping to think where they oan get the best value for their money, rush
helter-skelter into the next best clothing house, and buy costly 'gar
ments as if they were buying postage stamps. Poor, misguided people!
When will they find that in clothing stores, unlike in postoffices, goods,
prices and principles are vastly at variance?
It is to this minority the people who have never patronized ua
