Principal Source of Disturbance la took Market Resulted In Low est Quotations In Years, t, New York, Oct 21, The principal source of tbe fresh disturbance in the stock market last week waa traced Anally to tbe copper world but before tbe conditions had become sufficiently well defined the financial district was kept nervous by all kinds of rumors of the nature of tbe trodble that waa threatening. The result waa aean In the range of quotations established, which presented tbe lowest for scr ew! years in 'a considerable list of Important stocks. Foreign money eenters were kept well supplied with all the alarming rumors current and originated others., on their own ac count, sending securities for sale to this market meanwhile, and restrlot Ing credits to New York In icy ways., under tbeae circumstances there waa something like relief felt when the circumstances became known regarding tha market position In United Copper stocks" and a futile attempt to corner that stock and to administer chastisement, to the bear party which had been Interfering with the liquidation in the stock. The re duction in tbe dividend on Amalra- mated copper for the quarter from 1 per cent naturally aggravated die bad effect of the United Copper episode and successive reductions in tbe price of the metal kept open the root cause of the disturbance. Tha reduction In the price of tbe metal failed to bring In any effective buying and tbe pos sible limits of tbe fall remained unde fined. Reports were in circulation of Intended entire shutting down of pro duction in the Montana mines. ' Fears of coming business contraction that might run into depression - were stimulated by the course of tha cop per trade and had aome Incentive also in the advlcea from the Iron and steel trade.

Chase rose from her roektng-cnair, tne women. almost fretful look, which of late had become her habitual expression and marred an otherwise pretty face, dispelled for tha moment by a emlle of welcome. "Come right In, Mrs. Lincoln," aha said cordially. "I am glad yoa earn rer." ... ., Tha elderly woman seated herself. "Excuse my fancy-work," , aha smiled, "drawing a well-worn stocking from a bag of ample dimensions, "i eould not have soma unless I had brought It." ' f. - ' Her hostess sighed. Mrs. Lincoln waa holding her head on one aide contemplating a hole, with a look of comical deapalr. , - Eleanor Chase glanced at her. "Ton take everything so cheerful," sha said somewhat wistfully. - "Little things don't aeem to wear upon yon and make yon nervous, aa they do me. i think you must have been intended for motherhood.

Lincoln laid down her stocking and looked fixedly at her companion ''every woman was in tended for motherhood; make no mis take about that People may ad vance all the new-fangled theories they like about 'higher vocations.' There Is no higher vocation than that for which the Lord himself formed na." . - - Tha two women aewed for aome Urn In silence. They had been -near neighbors for ten years, ever since Mrs.' Chase as a pretty bride had come to live in Plnevllle,' and had reached that stage of pleasant Inti macy where speech Is not always nec essary. , "I had a letter from my sister, Mrs. Van Dusen, this morning," Mrs. Chase remarked after awhile she was fond of quoting her sister Mrs. Van Du sen, who had married a wealthy bank er, many years her senior, and waa now a widow, moving In the moet exclusive circles of a conservative New England city "she wants me to go and spend a week with her, but of course that la out of the quee- Iqn." - ' . : 'Whyr Mrs. Lincoln asked. "Ob, I couldn't take the children. and what would they do without their Mummy Dee,' aa Eveline calls mer Eveline waa four, and the baby or the family. 'Now. look hero, Mrs. Chase-' the neighbor laid down her work and spoke emphatically "a vacation . la lust exactly what you need. You are tired, and mattera aeem all awry to yon. A week with your sister will be an entire change and you will look at thugs with widely different eyes when yon return. Mr. Chase can get bis meals down town, and I will take Evelina right over to my house, sea that Elate and Alan have enough to eat and keep aa eye on them out of school hours. I can run over her at bed-time, too, and see that they are all right" "Oh. I couldn't think of allowing yoa to do all that!" Mrs Chase had dropped her sewing also. A faint pink lush came Into her cheeks and her eyea shone. "Don't ' yon worry," the neighbor said comfortably, "a child or two mora or leu never yet fased me." Twenty-four hours later Eveline a "Mummy Dee" stood arrayed In a smart traveling suit hastily pur chased for tha oocaaloa, her prettiest clothes packed and already on their way to the railway station. Once on the train her Bind reach ed oat toward the alluring proapect ahead.

It waa what ahe bad been hungering for, Eleanor told herself.
