brought-a' young woman who was suffering
..from hysteria and Incidentally
making her family suffer. She was a
sood-looklng , young, woman, and her
clothes flttett her and she'had plenty of
them, but these things gave her no joy,
apparently; all she asked was to be allowed
to die as quickly as was convenient
to all concerned.
To this end thq fair patient consistrnfnsnrl

anything remarkable If any other klnil

the rest cure doctors were generally ,in-.

Into submission. In this case,
however, the , plan failad to work. It
seemed to be,Just what the girl wanted.
Still, she would eat dill .pickles and hot
raised biscuit with honey; .'so, after she
had become too weak to walk, the authorities
reluctantly consented to the
pickles and biscuit as a temporary
measure of relief.
It was useless", to argue with her, for
she made no sign that she heard a word
that any.pne said to her. Her friends
asserted' that .she was quite deaf, but
one of the doctors had his doubts about
With a view to finding out whether
his -theory was- correct this man of
science was" in the habit' of shouting

in her presence with deep sorrow upon
various Imaginary calamities that had
befallen her relations. He was telling a
brother physician about the case, which
he declared was one of the most remarkable
in the whole course of his
experience.. . \ '% V'
; "I know she Is shamming," he said,
j "and 1 cannot believe she is, either. *if
you lirx'd a cannon behind her she
I wouldn't l&t an evelld flicker."
"Certainly she wouldn't," agreed the
other, who was a man of experience.
"And when I said how sad It was
that her mother had fallen off a trolley
car and had sustained a severe concussion
of the brain she didn't as much as
change color, let alone shed a tear."
"Of course she didn't," said the other.
Then he smiled to himself and stroked
his chin. At last he said: "I'll bet I
can find out whether she's shamming or
not. I'll go around to-morrow and see
He went around.and asked tbe.glrl
f several questions, to all of which she
j only shook her head and smiled languidly.
-r-Then the doctor left - her and
hnd a short consultation with two of
the nurses.
Shortly after this the two nurses happened
to be In the room where the girl
was sitting reading a hygienic novel
and they began to talk about her.
"It's such a pity," remarked nurse
No.' 1. "Of course she can't hill herself

sulphur mid molasses," pursued No. 1,
who was a remarkably fresh and rosycheeked
woman herself. "It'll be worse
than mine was before I came here and
took the diet. Do you remember how 1
looked then?"
They did not look at the girl?they
were too bright. They talked on other
subjects for some time, and then left
the room one at a time. The last one
to go left the door open the width of
her linger and then turned and applied
her eS'e to the crack.
She hud not long to wait. In about a
minute the girl rose from her seat and
walked casually over to the mirror. In
which"! she gazed Jong and earnestly.
The nurse stole away on tiptoe, and left
her there. The next morning, when, as
usual, the hygienic edible birds' nests
and things were offered to the patient
for her breakfast, she did not push
them away and demand pickles. She
ate what was given to her and In some
way the diet seemed Jo prove a sort of

Dugan Is the proprietor of a
weight in the community, and more or
ten* of u power in local politics. He
takes pride in his "place," also,* and
recently he caused a new plank sidewalk
to be' laid In front of It. He
watched the progress of the work with
an interest that hardly permitted him
to eerye his customers, whose congratulations
he received with conscious
pride, and when at last the walk was
completed and its clean-planed expanse
gleamed like a corner oasis In th?r wilderness
of black and rotten boards Pugan
called in the two carpenters who
had been engaged for the Job and told
them that they might call for whatever
they pleased.
B?lng Germans, they called for beer,
ko that Mr. Pagan's liberality had no
Hfrlous consequences. When they bad
finished their refreshment and departed
the'saloon-keeper stood In his doorway
and regarded his sidewalk fondly. "'Tla
u line piece of work, so It Is," he soliloquised.
"If the rest of the people In

pocket of his overalls. Then' he carefully
measured about two Inches on the
outside of the sidewalk, expectorated
copiously 'on the shining planks, after
the manner of his kind, and began to
The sound of the sawing awoke Mr.

and he sallied forth to pee what was
happening. When he realized what
was being done he turned pale and
gasped. For a moment words failed
him; then he shouted: "What the dlvll
are you doln' there?" In a voice that
made the carpenter Jump. ,
He wa'B a Jocose sort of German carpenter,
and when he saw Dugan, the
question had filtered through his brain, i
he replied: "I was playln' feet ball."
'"I'll teach you to play fag," roared
Dugan, and went back- for- his bung 1
starter. When he came out again the 1
carpenter knew that there was some- :
thing wrong and dropping his saw, -ran ,
for his life. Unluckily he stumbled
and in a moment the Baloon-keeper was ;
upon him.- I'
They had to convey the two of them , j
to the station In a patrol wagon, for
the carpenter was In no condition to
walk. At the desk Mr. Dugan preferred 1
his complaint with dignity. i
"But he Jumps on me and half kills ,
me,"- protested the carpenter. '"TIs me .
that Is hurted."
"Small blame to.him," said the Rergeant.
"What did you try to ruin the ;
man's sidewalk for?" t ,
"I vas hired to trim It four Inches."
"Who hired, you?"

Dugan stared at the man a moment
and then his features relaxed Into a
smile. He turned to the desk sergeant. 1

"That's what It must have been?a
a joke," agreed, the sergeant "I guess
you can go. .Hustle now, and get your
tools, and dont* let people fool you."
"Is It a choke?" asked the carpenter In
a bewildered way.
"YIs," said Dugan, klndjy and forgivingly.
" Hard to Duplicate it in Wheeling.
Scores of representative ' citizens* of
Wheeling are testifying on the following
subject. Such a record of local endorsement
Is unequaled in modern
times. This public statement made by
a citizen Is but one of the many that
have preceded It and the hundreds that
will follow. Read It:
Mrs. M. Deiters, of No. 26 South
Huron street, says: "After an attack
of la grippe I had severe aching across
the small of my back and through my
right thigh, bearing down pain In the
ankles; often worse when lying down:
and often when in bed I was so stiff I
could hardly turn over or gat out .of It.
I saw so many favorable accounts of
Doan's Kidney Pills that I got a box
at the Logan DrugCo.'s., and began their
use. I felt relieved after a few doses
and continued their use with splendid
results. My sister was visiting me at
the time and being troubled, as I was,
she took some on my recommendation,
and they helped her right away."

The Features of tho Money and Stock
NEW YORK, Sept. 8.?Money on call

Railroad bonds Irregular. State

With the exception of a dabbling
speculation In some of the specialties,
notably People's Gas, Sugar and Brooklyn
Transit, no particular interest attached
to the dealings. The holiday In
London aggravated the dullness and
the weakness of the active specialties
made the general tone heavy. The impending
strike of the anthracite mln
ers hail a depressing influence on sentiment
generally, though the coalers
themselves were little affected. New
Jersey Central recovered most of Its
early decline and Reading first preferred
was not down more than a fraction
at any time.
None of the other stocks of anthracite
carrying roads was dealt in. The comparative
firmness"*of the coalers was
partly due to the recent large output of
:oal from the mines and partly to a belief
that the strike might be restricted
within narrow limits. But the prospect
Df a controversy affecting so large a
body of laborereawl such large investments
of capital being abandoned to
hostile methods for settlement aroused
uneasiness among holders and operators
In securities.
. The stock market made a false start
again this week, after the three days of
holiday idleness, and after a brief Hurry
of activity dropped back into its lethar
gy ana prices sagged again to the former
level. The general Investment or
speculative world was not a partlclpunt
In the dealings at any time, but there
was some evidence of bolder and larger
operations of a professional character,
which were supposed to be due to the
re-entry of some of the Influential speculative
leaders newly returned from
vacations abroad.
The disposition on the part of London
to buy stocks here was Increased by
the marked ease of money at that center
and the generally more cheerful
view held of international politics, but
the vigorous measure adopted by the
Bank of England by large borrowings
from the open market, checked the
downward tendency of money and gave
an Intimation of knowledge of some future
demands to be made upon the
money markets. Suggestions are heard
of an additional British loan to be
placed, and the presence in France of
the Russian minister of flnance arouses
discussion of measures to meet Russian
demands for funds.
The London money market hardened
In consequence, and at the same time
sterling exchange weakened In New
York under offerings of cotton bills,
brought on the market by the urgent
buying-of cash cotton to tide over the
English shortage. This dissipated the
uupwd xjl a^jiiuuu vi a. ku?u movement
from New York and weighed on the
stock murket. It Is considered probable
that future British loans may seek
a lodgement In New York with a view
to Inducing further movement of gold
to London.
It cannot be said, however, that any
uneasiness exists In New York over the
future of the money market, In spite of
this posslbllty of further extraordinary
demand for gold from abroad. This
and the beginning of the currency
movement to the south and west as well
as the practical cessation of operation*
under the new government refunding
and bank note extension law, which
have been a source of replenishment to
the bank reserves, all leave the money
market practically unruffled.
The increased business In iron and
steel and the progress made toward adjustment
of wages are considered favorable
as far as they go, but the definitive
status of the Industry Is felt yet to
be decided and the future prices of steel
rails especially are looked for to help
High prices of steel rails and coal are
serious elements In the expense- of railroad
operation, though railroad earnings
continue to be well maintained.
The declaration of manufacturers of
Iron products that the maintenance of
the export trade will depend on reduced
freight rates for the products shows one
of the important problems upon the settlement
of which operations In stocks
are waiting.
Any considerable demand discloses r.
scarcity of stocks offering and prices
are easily advanced. The* general sentiment
continues to be one of caution
against possible accidents. Sugar hail
its periodical Hurry and its periodical
surprise over the dividend declaration
and then became quiet.
A feature of the week was the
strength of silver on the demand for remittance
to China. The decrease In
merchandise shipments to China on account
of the truoblcd conditions there
calls for shipments of silver against
merchandise received from China.
The apathy of capital toward secuiitlnn

higher. Corn closed %c and oats %c
improved. Provisions closed [email protected]
Dullness characteristic of curtailed
Saturday sessions pervaded the wheat
market all day. The tone, however, was
firm. October opened %C higher at
73?*hC to 73*4c. helped by steady cables,
reports that rains were again damaging
wheat in shock In the northwest and
on the heavy cash business worked
late Friday. Following theopenlngOctober
on selling by scalpers touched 73%c,
but at the dip there was some influential
buying. This brought shorts into
7334c. The heavy primary receipts.
1,324.000 bushels,, against 1.1S3.000
bushels last year, caused some selling,
but the close was lirm, October ^i?*?c
over yesterday at 73ic. The corn
strength helped sustnln the market towards
the end. Local receipts were 327
cars, twenty-four of contract grade.
Minneapolis and" Duluth reported 649
ears, against 146 last week and 916 a
year ago. New York claimed fifteen
loads taken for export. Seaboard clearances
In wheat and Hour were 837,000
bushels. Yesterday's export business
as reported from New York was 1,000,000
Corn was moderately active and
strong. Liverpool was ^d higher and
cour.trv offerings were light. There
was a good outside demand while the
selling was local and scattered. Receipts
were 374 cars. There was some
reaction late in the session on liberal
realizing. October sold between 3S^c
nnd closing strong and %c
up at 38%@n9c. Receipts were 374 cars.
Oats made a quiet beginning, but
were more active later. The corn
strength was a help and there was a
good cash demand. October sold between
21%c anil 21%c. Uc higher at
21%c. Receipts were 419 cars.
Provisions continued strong because
of the strength of the cash position
which Is now about the only factor In
the market. Packers tightened the
screws some to-day and shorts did their
b:st to cover. October pork sold between
$11 JO and $2117^ and closed 12%c
