Fiction Jliulr to Order.
The publisher of Action in paper covers
was not feeling very amiable when
the young lady novelist called on him.
"I cnllr.ri to see about my story," said
th?- young lady novelist.
"Oh. the one which Is entitled 'Marietta'?
Marriage; or, a Life Story from
a Hook of Cigarette Papers.' "
"Yes; that's It."
"Well, ifs a pretty good novel. Put
you us bear In mind that, as lltterntoors,
we're responsible for the education of
th?? nuhllr In a rortnln d*?irrat?. We must
not be too improbable. SOta*tlmes you
have to be a little improbable now and
then In order to fascinate your reader,
but you <-?n be reasonable a good deal
of the time."
"Hut if you try that. isn't your reader
likely to become un fascinated?" she
"Not if you're judicious* Now. the
only objection I have to your story Is
the Incident wlch represents the heroine

In order to escape th<* abductors who
ore on her track. It's too much to risk
on an awning. And. besides, it's more
than HkHy that any nbdudtpr that knew

There was still futther advance In the
price of stocks all along the line to-day,
and a still further Increase In the number
of shares sold during the day. The
number of different stocks traded In was
also larger, reflecting the broadening
Interest in the market. Buying orders
from outside sources were placed with
commlslson houses more extensively today
than on any day since the movement
began. As was the case yesterday,
this outside demand was taken advantage
of to realize profits by the combination
of large speculative interests,
which Is all the time* operating on an
enormous scale, shifting Its activity
from one stock or group of stocks to
another. The grangers all showed the
effects of realizing to-day, and did not
riso materially above yesterday's closing
price at any time. So large were
the offerings of these stocks during the
first hour of trading that the heavy outside
demand proved insufficient to absorb
them, and a sharp decline was the
result. Burlington dropped over a
pdint. Offerings on a largo scale were
thereupon withheld and the group maintained
a firm tone at a lower level, except
for intervals of profit taking. The
bears endeavored to take advantage of
this profit taking movement by an onslaught
upon Manhattan and Sugar at
the opening, hoping that the reccnt persistent
weakness of these two stocks
would make them vulnerable and effective
In breaking prices. But the bulls
at the same time lifted the Northern
Paclfio stocks a point each at the opening,
and marked up Rubber preferred
4V4 per cent. The outside demand for
stocks all through the list was so active
and varied as to lend ample support for
continued Droflt taking by the bull
clique. The bears were Boon routed,
and Manhattan and Sugar moved upwards
along with the general list.
Northern Pacific and the Union Pacific
stocks sagged at Intervals, but the former
returned persistently to the opening
high level. An Incident of the day
was a notice on the tape of the loss of
3,000 shares of Union Pacific preferred
In -the name of William Rockefeller.
New stocks were constantly being
brought forward into activity during
the day and were advanced one after
the other to a materially higher level.
Southern railways and Bome of the
western roads which ore affiliated with
transcontinental systems showed notable
strength. There was also marked
activity and strength in a long list of Industrials,
Tobacco, People's Gas, Lead,
Tennessee Coal and the Rubber stocks
being especially conspicuous. There
were sharp reactions in most of these
on profit taking, but they rallied again
before the close. The close wns firm
and active at only a little below the best
and at a materially higher level of
prices throughout.
The demand for securities has apparently
been largely diverted to the stock
market, and bonds were comparatively
dull to-day. but prices were very well
held. Total sales 13,575.000.

10c and lard 2&c. Ribs are unchanged
to higher. Wheat got a weak start
from Liverpool sending lower quotations,
but there was a disposition during
the first couple of hours to go slow
on the selling side and take small profits
on the decline. Th* crowd during
that time was evidently restrained from
selling freely by the fact that the Increased
movement that country advices
had been predicting for u day or two.
had not yet got beyond the stage of
probability. Chicago received 215 cars
and Minneapolis and Duluth got 245.
against 322 a year ago. Primary western
markets received an aggregate of
653,000 bushels, against 884.000 bushels
<he corresponding day of the year before.
Clearances from the Atlantic seaboard
were equal In wheat and flour to
400.000 bushels. The seaboard was bearIshly
inclined and the northwest advices
were nil In favor of lower prices
in view of the expected heavier receipts
up there.
The speculative market turned fearfully
dull and there was not much activity
In 4he cash department of the
business. The latter might have shown
more life had mocks been heavier, but
people who had bids at from 5 to 6c a
bushel premium over September In
store for shipping parcels of No. 2
Kansas hard and No. 2 rod winter, could
not get offers for anything like the
quantity there was orders for from the
seabonrd. Kansas City's general remark
In answer to bids from hero was
that c?sh wheat or spot for August
shipment was scaree. as millers were
paying the shipping rates for the
moderate offerings from farmers. That
condition of affairs had some little effect
In hardening the tone of the speclatlve
market, but It apparently depended
more upon prudentlnl covering
by shorts than buying for long account
fnr ?hi? mMltlnnn! nrlce caused by
the peculiar condition of the cash market.
September opened unchanged to
