CHICAGO.
None of tho fcoturcs of tho dry-goods market
bu essentially changed since our lust review,
jobbers report a good seasonable business in
progress, and prices conUnfao to display the most
podilre firmness. Collections, ton, nro easy,
todtaken all around the position of tho market
oust be regarded as eminently satisfactory, Tho
ffcll’insislucd character of the demand Is largely
due, no doubt,, to the prevailing lowprlccsof man
factored goods nnd tho Increasing cost of the
staples,-cotton and wool. Tho woolen-goods
tisrßit, which for months has remained In a more
or less demoralized condition, begins to show
signs of reluming activity, nnd, as the supply bo
(seen manufacturers nnd consumers Is smaller
tr.«n for a number of seasons. It Is not unreason
able to anticipate an early Improvement in prices.
Among the changes In cottons noted during tho
verk were an advance tn New York Mills and
Farmers 1 brown, Now York SHIN. Hnllou, and
Lomdale bleached. Sprague’s pink prints have
tren advanced to Oc, and Kichmond’s and Allen's
Tho New York Journal oj Commerce
ujsof the cotton-goods market:
'‘Throughout tho week tho demand for nnd move
ment of cotton goods has shown nothing at vnrl
«nec with tho tenor of onr Inst review. Wall
leading makes and styles of browa. blenched, and
colored cottons the receipts nro quickly disposed
of through standing orders, ann any surplus find
ing quick disposition In accommodatingp dally cur
rent request, independent of the advance in cut
ton the market would sustain a very large portion
of the advance made, and In no styles or dualities
It a weakness possible or probable until the sup
ply Is in excess of the demand, which, at this
writing, la out of tho question, with a good re
quest for export seeking assortments. Consider
ing the late period of the season the tone of tho
market is unusually strong, while no stocks with
agents, the production largely under control, and
only a moatli before the earliest" demand for au
tumn, the outlook In not flattering to those who
hare predicated their purchases at a less average
(banrates now current. '
NEW YORK.
Js«w York. May 20.—W00l flonncls continue In
active demand, and stocks have greatly reduced in
fimhands; cotton goods morket firm and prices
still advancing; prints dull; ginghams quiet:
bwni in steady request; buntings doing well, and
dreu goods In moderate demand: heavy fancy
««imeres, Cheviots, nnd worsted coatings In
stead/ request by clothiers.
LUMBER,
The movement of lumber, etc., last week nnd
lines Jan. 1 is exhibited in the following slate

The cargo market was quiet, the receipts lining
wry small. Two sales of dry stall were made at
former dilutee. Green was unchanged, being
quoted the same as heretofore.
Shingles and lath sold at recent prices. Dry
lumber is in good demand, and moves oil almost
as (ooq as it reaches thu docks. Some of tho East*
ibcue mill-wen are piling their lumber, Intending
to send It In dry. This partially accounts for thu
meagre receipts at tho sale-docks. Following are

That was a sail, sad nftalr that happened re*
ccnlly. A young umu, upon learning that u
young lodv whom lie adored—hut whoso love
lor him was not very warm—was about to sail
for Europe, engaged passage on the same ves
sel, so that lie might busk In her smiles during
the voyage. Hut he didn’t bunk much. The
second day out ho was seized with au Internal
commotion,—a wrenching and wretched feeling
that threatened to turn him inside out, mid
until ho reached Liverpool ho was thu most
miserable man in ihu world. Tho young lady
made her appearance regularly at meals, with
mi appetite as savaco as a Milting Bull Indian,
and (lining like all creation with a young En
glishman who wore sideboard collars ami a
Scutch cap. When tho wretched young man
learned tills ho had u serious relapse, and
wished ho was borne. Borne old scientist says
the ocean will be entirely dried up In a few
million years hence, and thu blighted young
man bos concluded to patiently woit until that
period arrives, and then return home overland.
Female Veracity.
Tho English Hcncb has decided Informally
that a woman can tell a Letter Ho than a man.
At the Devon Aeslzos In Exeter, during the trial
of a perjury case, the counsel fur the defense
made use of the remark that a woman would
say anything. Huron Huddleston, in addressing
the Jury, observed that he could not go as for
ns tho counsel, hut it was a wall known fact
that a woman told a lie hotter than u man did.
It was a remarkable circumstance that when a
woman was determined to say that which was
untrue, she did it a great deal belter than a man.
Whether It was that a man was mom conscious
of his Indignity, was a metaphysical question he
could not answer; but It was certain that a
woman could tell a story much more logically
and pcrscvcrlngly than a man could. Ho was
glad that it was a question for the Jury to say
whether Urn girl should be believed, fur ho him
self admitted Uialucupacity to gauge the veraci
ty of a womsn,wheu she a ppcoml In tho box.

CUKUJ3NT GOSSIP.
•TESTER JAMES.
(A's. I nfthe TV/r/t Mrtf* nf “ Hob Uallnde,*' by IT. A.
Otlnerr.)
In all the merry land that spreads from Humber to
the Thames.
You couldn't find a Jester who could rival Jester
James;
Ills antic Jokes were modeled on severely classic
rules,
And all his quips passed muster at tbs strictest
l&dlos' schools.
None Imitated actors like this fascinating rogue;
Ills comic songs enjoyed ft most extraordinary
vogue;
And no one laughed so heartily at this engaging
man
As Lady Isabel, betrothed to Hugh do Barbican.
‘•Nowgood Kir Hugh,"said Isabel, "If fond of
mo you he.
Engage thin merry fellow, for ho hugely plcatelh
rno,"
And good Hir Hugh da Barbican engaged blm, it
npneur.i.
To poke tils fun at any one for seven certain years.
For half a year or thereabouts he did extremely
well;
His quaint remarks convulsed Blr Hugh and Lady
Isabels
And crowds dropped In each afternoon to hear his
latent crank.
Including P-raon-gca of the V-ry 11-gbcstß-nk.
But, ah I thorn came a dnj when It was patent to
Kir Hugh
That James had uttered nearly all the decent Jests
he knew.
He doled (hem out at intervals, and mucii impaired
their stri'Mirth
By dwelling on their merits at unnecessary length.
Ills qulpn grow very feeble and hfs puns fell flat
and I'.cnd:
Ills riddles were so easy you could do them on
your head:
And though Ids imitations were by far the heat
of ull,
Yet oven Imitations, alt day long, arc apt to pall.
Poor,fetter James grew anxious when be found ho
didn’t please,
Ami when they guessed his riddles (which they did
with perfect ease)
Ho used to groan and weep, and heat his bosom
witu his list:
Which isn't what you look for in a private
humorist.
At turn'll! it trot to sacb a pitch that thus outspoke
Slrllnnht
“I fear you've undertaken rather more than you
cun do.
The practice of your calling seems to give yon pain
acute;
I'll cancel your agreement. Go to Margate, and
recruit.
Said James, “A kinder offer I havo never, Dover
hoard,
Ham bargain Is a bargain; I’m o Jester of my
word.
I’ve signed a bond by which I undertake to famish
von
With seven years of merriment, and 1 will do It
loo!' 1
The wretched Knight he writhed beneath the dis
mal Jester’s ban;
And, much ua Lady Isabel loved llngh do Bar
hicnp,
To marry him she firmly, but respectfully, de
clined,
Unless his Jester altered for the better, or re
sinned.
At last Sir Hugh look heart, and said; “I’ve home
with yon 100 Iona;
Your Jobes arc much 100 weak, except when they
are much too strong.
Ho off. and don’t como'buck; you’ll have no reason
to complain,
For I’ll Kindly p*v your wages; hut yon don’t JoUo
hero again.’'
But James, though dull, was promt, and scorned
the bread of idleness:
‘•My contract is for seven years—no more, and
nothine leas.
If.you biivo riebis, why so have I. 1 know whni
I’m abmil;
And I muni insist on Joking till tlio seven yearn are
out."
Sir Hugh gave In and tried another plan (for ho was
weak);
Ho spent bln nights Inventing decent jokes for
James to speak;
And each duv at James' breakfast, with his rolls
nml ynlly Limns.
Came a batch of blameless riddles and of inodcti-
Hive puns.
For Instance, Hugh would bid him sit, his head
between Ida feel,
To justify hiHsaying, “lam making both ends
meet.”
On which a shout of merriment wouldocho through
the hail,
Which must have boon.goad-nature, for (ho Joka
was very small.
Audsomcttracs James was told to climb a venera
ble unk.
That he might soy, “I’m npo tree, ’’—an Irritating
joke. ’
But still hU audience wore a pleasant smile npon
their 11 pa.
For they saw the Dawn of Hcaaon in these gruesome
little quips.
Ouo day James had to tumble down a well and
break a bone,
To warrant htm m saying, * * Better far let • well
alone.*'
Ho did it: and Sir Hush wna bo impressed by the
advice,
That ho wouldn't hear of meddling with that well
at any price.
James persevered “Let well alone” Incessantly to
tit was the cue for good file Hugh logo and pall
him out).
lie cried. " Let well alone—let well alone I” as bo
was hid; .
But Sir Hugh ho only answered, “So I wlllt”
and so he did.
Loud rang tho merry cnillo bells from battlomontod
And puyly hummed tho wassail in those proud an
central halls;
And merry were tho nuptials of Sir Hugh and
Isabel,
For no osiu over thought of Interfering with that
well.
A MODERN HEIIMOX.

Tlio following exhibits the method upon which
the average parson constructs bis delectnblodls

“Brethren, the words of my text arc;
Old Molhcr Hubbard.eho went to (hecupboard,
To get her poor dog A buna;
But wiiun sliu got there the cupboard was bare,
And so (he poor dorf hud mine.

To got her poor dog a hono.
“Mother Hubbard, you see, was old; there

It, although wo are not distinctly told that It
was not naif open or ajar,—to open it for that
pouf dug. , ,
But when she sot there the cupboard was bare,
And so the poor dug had none.
‘“When she got there 1* You see, dear

slipping and siblings, no leaning to tho right
or faltering to the left. W Ills glorious sun

VISION’S OF SPRING.

As I write a dear little wasp falls upon the

by sibilant sound and taunting mid encouraging

thoroughfare of Eighth street with the glory of

dress and flannel leggings is falling down the
stairs of the house across the way, aiid a man In

u fine burst of speed arc endeavoring verv suc
cessfully to distance the man In seven different
directions. *N'o one man can head off seven
chickens under those circumstances. A woman
out ‘‘calling” and evidently a Utile bit lost us
to locality, Is standing with a card-ease in her
hand, patiently knockingat the door of a house
that has been ctnptv nearly eight weeks; The

A QUICK-WITTED HOT.
During the railroad riots in Pittsburg in the
summer of 1877 (says the Boston Temtcrlfii) it
became necessary to beat a hasty retreat from
the general office of the Pan-Handle Hallway
Company, and the promises were evacuated In
donblo-uulck-llme. In the confusion a regu
lator cluck, used by the Superintendent, wan
aceldentnllv left behind In the lower ball, for

A youth still in hU toon*, a messenger In il.e

to take It; but a burly rioter saw it at the same
time and seized it. It was ns much us one's life
was worth to expostulate with the plunderer,
but the boy pluckilv laid hold of the timepiece
and claimed it as Id* property. Tim “ plug

“ that clock won’t do you no good. IL’n made

friends In salety with the rescued clock, which
is now doing good service again.

“Humph I Ought to been there; biggest

“ Who wants to go to j-cr old circus! ” veiled
John. ** I had a circus all to mvsclf. Tied tho
