niaiket was lemarkablj narrow and
it regular, the hlghlj .speculative secur
ities nbsoiblng practically the whole
of the limited dealings, In which no
one but professional loom traders took
any part. There was no rellectlon of
any news In the course of prices. There
was evidence of laige realizing In some
of the (.ecuiltles of local corporations
which have recently been advanced by
the buying of n combination of Inter
ests, but the declines thus effected In
these stocks invited buying nnd le
stored the earlier losses, in some cuses
earrjlng them above the pievlous level.
