First Prices 1 to 4 Points Higher—Mexican Petrol eum Spectacular New York, April 27.—The sudden shift In the Mexican situation caused a com plete reversal In the stock market to day. The proposal for mediation and • Huerta's reported acceptance came at a time when the market had been sold out, and was in an exceptionally strong po sition technically. It was owing to this condition of affairs that the market made such a swift and decided response as came today. Shorts were stampeded and for half an hour after the opening trad ing was excited. First prices were 1 to 4 points higher. The movement in Mexican petroleum was spectacular. This stock lost 11 points last week, owing to fears of dam age to its property, located In Mexico. It opened 10 points higher today, and then bounded up to 68, au advance of 15%. No such performance had been wit nessed on the stock exchange since tha historic flare In Rock Island several years ago. Mexican petroleum had been heavily sold on last week's break, and today’s spurt was due to efforts of pan icky shorts to cover. As soon us the rush was over, the price fell back swiftly. At the close It Ivad lost all Its 15-point gain and a point more. Smelting, which also has large Inter ests in Mexico, made an exceptional opening gain of 4 points. Every part of the list showed decided strength, but the upturn was due principally to cov ering, and represented little In the way of active bullish operations. The pros pect of successful solution of the Mex ican problem by mediation were consid ered too uncertain to justify confident trading on the long side. Prices In con sequence fell off after excited covering of the early session was over. The mar ket was dull and uncertain until the , last hour, when pressure was applied and a large part of the early gains was lost. A few stocks, including Lehigh Valley and Canadian Pacific, showed losses at the close. Colorado Iron, influenced by the disastrous Colorado strike, was es pecially heavy. London played a large part in the day's movement. American stocks tlieer moved up strongly before the opening .here. London came into this market as a buyer, taking perhaps 20,000 shares.

EXCELLENT DEMAND IN WHOLESALE TRADE Opening for Week on Morris Avenue Is Brisk—Egg Prices Up Business on Morris avenue yesterday begnn quite briskly and the excellent demand was in evidence throughout the day. The feature of the day's trading was the advance of t-cent in the p**lco of eggs and the prediction of a still greater- advance soon. It is said that eggs now are somewhat sea tee, due probably to tire fact that many Hava been placed in storage. The price prob ably will advance 1 or 4 cents more within a week or 10 days. Alabama strawberries are now com ing in and the demand Is great. The price is 15 cents a quart and the ber ries are large, luscious and tempting. The restaurants are sail buying large quantities of the shipments, but house holders are purchasing many of the ber ries. Cabbage, lettuce, radishes and oth er spring vegetables are beginning to come In and the produce end of the market is assuming the appearance of real spring. In the fish market tlie supply is good and the demand fair. Quotations re main unchanged. Butter is off half a cent and so Is cheese.

Wheat Closes Comparatively Steady and Other Leading Staples Decline Chicago. April 27.—Beneficial rains throughout most of the winter and spring crop belts had much more influence in making the wheat market bearish today than the assumed outlook for peace. The close, which was comparatively steady, showed %(0%c to %c net decline, other leading staples as W'ell ns wheat all fin ished at a loss-corn ^GrSc to %c, oats %@%e to%iO, and provisions 5@7%c to 25c. Weather and crop news almost monop olized attention in the wheat pit, espe cially after trading was fairly under way. Flour speculators, nearly without excep tion, lined up on the selling side, and so also did a number of commission houses. Another set of brokers, however, had n good many resting orders to buy on a break. The May option in particular re ceived support of this description seem ingly the result of elevator interests tak ing hold with a rather firm aand. Except in May w heat, rail. *s proved < t little importance. The cffectof world shipments dwindling and of a big decrease in the domestic visible supply seenud to have been discontinued beforehand. It was a somewhat general opinion, too. that nothing In the way of statistics today could have overcome ihe remarkably bearish prospect for crops. Corn values ranged lower in sympathy with wheat, and as a result of the failure of cash demand to follow the recent up turn. Advices seemed to indicate that the amount of Argentine sales cancelled had been greatly exaggerated and that the torrential rains in Argentina had ceased. Weakness In corn spread to the oats market, which was also affected by weather favorable for giving the new cror a good start, ("ash concerns and •borts were active buyers on vii- decline. In the provision crowd, soiling by I*mgs and packers made quotations solXc. from the start. Ideas of profits from a war bulge seemed for the time being to van ish.

MADAME ISE’BELL Gives Directions for a Proper Shampoo The Hair and Scalp—Part V It is a constant inquiry from pupils “how often shall I shampoo my head?" There is only one answer to this, ,,?is often as It Is necessary to keep it clean.’ This depends on where you live, whether your hair is exposed to much soot or dust and whether your scalp Is subject to dandruff or over-oiliness. Neglected hair needs a shampoo more often than hair that is carefully aired and brushed every day. In short, the hair and scalp should be kept perfectly clean by daily brushing, airing, scalp friction and by a shampoo whenever it is necessary. When a Shampoo Is Harmful A shampoo can only be harmful when it is improperly done. Don’t use a shampoo mixture of which you knowr nothing; it may contain some strong alkali which, while it will “cut the dirt” may break and dry the hair and have even a more disastrous effect on the scalp. No mat ter what shampoo you use rinse it well out of the hair. Soap left in the huir or on the scalp will w’ork harm. Remem ber also not to rub the cake of soap di rectly on the hair, for the hairs are grooved and soap applied in this way may get into these grooves and remain. A good shampoo mixture can be made by shaving enough good soap into two cups of boiling water to make a semi-liquid; stir in a teaspoon of powdered borax. To Shampoo the Hair at Home It is quite possible to shampoo your hair at home if you have the time and the necessary appliances. Jf the hair is long and thick, it is difficult to properly rinse it without a bath spray. With a spray it Is a simple matter and the price of a good spray is quickly repaid. Most hair dressers dry with a current of hot air; this saves time and trouble, but the hair will be more glossy after the sham poo if it is dried simply by wiping with warm towels and lifting and fanning the locks. Begin your shampoo by brushing your hair and taking out all tangles. Make a lather of your shampoo mixture and ap ply It to the scalp, rubbing it in vigor ously. Then rinse with tepid water. Ex amine the sculp to see if it Is clean, and. if not. repeat this operation. If the scalp is clean, pour the rest of the shampoo mixture on the hair itself, rub bing the locks of hair gently but thor oughly as if you were washing a piece of silk. Rinse several times to finish, first with hot, then with tepid and finally with cold water. When the rinsing water runs away absolutely clear you can be sure that all the soap is washed out of the hair and scalp. Dry the hair with warm towels, first rubbing the scalp as dry as possible and then the hair, wiping and patting each strand separately. Fanning the hair will hasten the drying process; during trie summer let the hair dry out of doors and treat It to a sun bath whenever practi cal. When the hair Is half dry separate it into strands and disentangle it, taking care not to pull the hair, for wet hair Is clastic. When the hair is dry rub In any tonic you are using or massage the scalp with a little eau de cologne to aid the circulation. Do not dress the hair until the scalp is thoroughly dry. If the hair is so dry and fluffy after a shampoo as to become unmanageable, a little brilllantine can be used to advan tage. To apply this put a few drops on the palm of the hand, rub the two palms together and pass the hands lightly over the hair after it has been dressed. This will keep the hair tidy and restore the mentarily taken from it. To bo continued. COTTON MARKET: Near Months Unsettled and New Crop Quiet May i Leads Decline New York. April 27.—The f*otton mar ket was Irregular today, with near, months unsettled bv uncertainty as to i the probable extent and effect of the May notices expected tomorrow, while j the new crop was relatively quiet and j steady owing to reports that heavy 1 rains were delaying new crop worw In j the southwest and apprehensions that i these rains would pnss into the cast- ' ern belt and be followed by a drop in e t rutu, e*». Tin • m •. c . from four to 11 points higher. The market showed considerable strength during the early trading, and after opening firm at an advance of six to eight points, sold about 11 to 14 points net higher. Houses with Liverpool con nections were good buyers of May at the opening and the advance was encourage! by relatively firm cables, as well as by the reports of unfavorable weatlu\ good deal of realizing was encountered on the advance, however, and the mar ket soon turned easier in consequence. Prominent brokers seemed to have a good deal of May for sale against pur chases of July or late* months, and while May had Increased its premium on the early advance, that month led the subsequent decline, selling back to within two points of Saturday's closing prices and to within thiee points of the July price. It was rumored that several thousand bales of May were sold by a \N all street house against purchases of July at a difference of three points, with leading spot interests taking the reverse end of the business. New 'crop positions, followed by the near month reaction to the extent of only four or five points, ami closing prices showed rallies of three or four points from the lowest on covering. The talk around the ring reflected much confusion of opinion as to notice day developments tomorrow. Some traders predicted that the bulk of the local stock would be ten dered; others predicted that notices would be issued against only a few thou sand bales; equally conflicting views were circulating as to whether the cotton would be taken up for shipment to south ern mills or elsewhere.

Hubbard Bros. & Co.’s Letter New York* April 27.—(Special.)—In an ticipation or a more peaceful outlook the Liverpool market was steady at only a small concession. Heavy rains In north ern Texas were also considered an in jurious factor. All deliveries advanced some 10 points excepting May, when scattered liquida tion was present during the session. To- j morrow is tender day of Mays and the , trade are quite undecided as to who will j deliver and who will receive the cotton j offered for delivery. We think from now on the condition of the growing crop will be the main fac tor which will control prices. So many disturbing factors are ap parent, of which Mexico is one, that most merchants are awaiting for them to de velop in such a manner as to admit of clear discussion and reflection. Until then we can only expect minor fluctua tions. Real Estate Transfers The following real estate transfers were yesterday recorded In the office of the probate court: $2000—W. J.
