There is no evidence of weakness as a result of this apparent apathy, and tbe amount of business already placed gives assurances that there is no lm mediate prospect of accumulating stock in the hands of producers. In order to meet the demand for these lines of cotton goods in greatest re quest it bas been necessary to divert much machinery from less popular goods. While tbe woolen goods divi sion is still quiet on the whole, tbere is evidence of increased activity in some departments aud buyers are complain ing of tbe delay tbat attends deliveries of dress goods. Duplicate orders for men's wear do not expand as rapidy as desired, but tbe sentiment is more satisfactory than at any time in recent weeks.

Another ball went iv his leg and staid there, but tbe first gave him and his surgeons so much trouble tbat he for got all about tbe second till three years ago when, by a fall, he b;oke that leg. Tbe X ray was used on the fracture and, to the surprise of the surgeon ai.d Mr. Brent he there discovered the bullet, long since forgotten, and took it from where it had rested quietly more than 40 years.
