A writer in the Dan vera (Mass.)
Chronicle has been coinpllliiK a lit,t of
humorous typographical errors, many of
which are so ludicrous an to cause a
newspaper inan to wonder how they
ever pasted the proofreader.

other day caused by a newspaper's announcement
that '.'the price of beer
would be advanced." The paper had to
Kft out an extra announcing: that it
should read "beef," not "beer," and the
thirsty Milwaukeeans drew a long sigh
of relief.

editor, "the bride was hailed and kissed
by all and the happy couple given l>l?Aty
of praise." Hut what was his horror
v hen he read the notice in the paper the
n.xt day: "After the session_ the brido.

A country correspondent, in giving an

The headline editor hns his own
troubles, of which tho world knows not.
The other day In Chlco, Cal.. a man

Tin- principal factoll In to?duy'i tlock
market were the statements of th*
earnings in October of two of the treat
railroads of the country, namely the
Pennsylvania and Burlington. Roth
statements made a remarkably strong
showing, but that of Burlington h:id
been discounted by a more active speculation
and the rumors which have
preceded the publications for some tlrnr
pust have grossly exaggerated the proportions
of the increase As a consequence
there was some disappointment
in speculative circles over the Burlington
statement and soma profit-taking,
which imparted a heavy tone to the
whole of the grnngers 'group until latf
In the day. In the final hour prices of
the group shared In the strength of the
general market. Bock Island led with
n net advance of IVi per cent on reports
that the company's refunding scheme
hud been perfected and the sale of the
firrt block of new 4 per cent bonds concluded.
The Qciober statement of the
Pennsylvania system with its increase
In gross earnings of 1900.000 and In net
of $452,100, was regarded as strongly
favorable and as reflecting a large general
Improvement in business. The
stock of the Pennsylvania railroad
rose L'ty per cent under Its Influence and
all of the trunk lines showed a marked
degree of strength, New York Central,
I^ake Shore and Canada Southern rising
from one to two points. Although
the Burlington statement compared
with a very strong month last year and
tviin one less mismesa uuy in mo muutn
than last year, and altnough both the
groes and net earnings fell slightly t?elow
those of September of this year,the
falling: off from the record month of
September was small. There waa a very
marked Increase in the operating expenses,
both for Burlington and the
Pennsylvania, amounting to $440,330 In
the case of the former and $*.$1,600 In
the case of the latter, reflecting the arrearages
of outlay for maintenance
which exist genially In railroad property
all over the country, The Erie and
Lehigh Valley, also, had very favorable
statements for October, but In both
cases heavy Increases In operating expenses
absorbed *a large proportion of
the Increase in gross earnings.
Speculation In Sugar was again very
active all day and the utoclc rose
strongly, closing 2lso higher than last
night. The approach of the regular dividend
period and expectation of a favorable
decision by the treasury department
on the question of countervailing
duties on Imported Dutch sugars were
the causes'of the rise. Northwest and
Omaha show net gains equalling a
point. Consolidated Has Is IV. per cent
higher on the day. New Jersey Central
gained VA per cent. Otherwise net gains
In the active stocks are confined to fractions
and there Is a fair sprinkling of
small losses through the list. Sales of
silver certificates on I he exchange for
11,000 ounces at from S9',4c to 59%c wore
a feature of the day. Bar silver sold In
this market at 69^c, a price which had
not been equalled before since July 22.
Bullion dealers have no other explanation
to.offer to the strength of silver,
but the existence of active demand and
a limited supply.

CHICAGO?Wlu-nt rallied sharply today
on the enormous day's clearances
and closed steady nt an advance of
%c. for May. December was apparently
held down and showed only %c advance
at the close. Weak cables and a larger
visible Increase were bearish factors.
Other markets were dull, hut
firm at the close. Corn was unchanged,
oats higher and provisions
about UVfcc higher.
Wheat started heavy and was on the
dVnvn grade for an hour and a haK.
May, which closed yesterday at OftVj/fv
90%c, opened to-day nt JKWH'ffDO^e.
Enough bnylng was started at the
slight decline to advance the price temporarily
to !)0%c, but It soon got down
analn to flOVic. December w.'>s even
weaker, opening vtc lower at 05%, selling
at J16c, then declined to >5'4c. Weakness
at the Liverpool market, with an
opening decline of S'^vas perhaps the
main reason for the decline. Th*
northwestern receipts, while heavy and
compared with those on the corresponding
day of the year before enormously
so, were yet as compared with
the moVement a week ago, considerably
smaller and indicative of the commencement
of their permanent radical
decrease. Minneapolis and Duluth reported
1.04.1 cilrs, apalnst 1,306 last week
and 316 the vear Iteioi*. Chicago receipt*
were 274 carloaoe against only 58
last vear.
The export clearances from Atlantic
ports proved to be conspicuously heavy,
that they drove out of mind the bearish
feaHires that had been the guiding
motive* on the decline and caused n
speedy reversal of the previous course
of prices.
The div's exports of Wheat were 7.17.460
biisheln and of flour ss.lOO barrels,
the total being equal to 1,1.15,000 bushels.
That wns said to break all previous
records from on" dny'a cxpofta
from the Atlantic seaboard.
Quite a scramble by shorts look place
after the postltin of these figures which
resulted In scndlnc the price of May up
to fM>{,fi7fl1ViO and December to 06V4?\

of corn favored holders, but this
fact was disregarded until wheat rallied
The principal part of the day's
trading wa.f taking December over to
May. Price change.s were very narrow.
Receipts were C41 cars, much below estimates.
Atlantic clearances were 693.000
bushels. May ranged from 29&@
29Uc to 20c and closed unchanged at
There was very little to the oats
market except clanging at lH(pl%c
spread. Longs Fold December and
tfjord was moderate commission house
buying of May. which made that delivery
relatively firmer than the nearer
one. The action of wheat had some influence.
llecelpts were posted at 567
cars. Seaboard clearances were 783.000
bushels May ranged from 22Hc to 21T*c,
cloninr? highqr at 22V4c.
With the exception of a short time after
the opening, provisions were firm.
Heavy receipts of hogs here and at
Western pMnts caused some hesitation
early. John Cudahy was a good buyer
through brokers, presumably covering
of short lines and this buying was re*
sponsible tor tne sugm aavancps m
January products, which marked the
close. December products were easier,
resulting In a slight widening of the
spread. At the close January pork wan
2^c higher at $8 20; January lard was a
shade higher at $4 22l,fc?4 25 and January
ribs 2%c higher at J4 20.
