Lewis' Comment. (Jhw. E. Lewis & Co. report—Wheat —Opened steady and advanced on smaller car lots in the northwest and on the strong cash premiums in the northwestern markets. The volume of trade, however, was light and on the bulge, local longs took profits and the market having no support declined and closed at the lowest point of the day. The Argentine news however, is somewhat mixed and Minneapolis has not increased their stock of wheat on the crop, but the weakest point in the whole situation is the lack of specu lation which makes winter wheat stocks quite a drag on the market. Indications are that the clearances for the week will be the largest so far on the crop. We believe that on the weak spots that wheat is a purchase.

In the early days of Leadville there wag a singular character living by the name of Major Martin McGinnis. The major was the important man of the camp, *nd when any distinguished parties came to the city they were received by Major Martin McGinnis and presented with the freedom of tho camp on a gold plate. The French government sent three mining engi neers over to examine and to report upon the mineral deposits of this lo cality. They were received by Major Martin McGinnis, who put them in car riages and took them around the camp. As they were going up California gulch the Frenchmen suddenly jumped out of the carriage and commenced to hammer and chisel upon a large black bowlder that lay alongside the road. The major watched them ges ticulating to one another, and. he final ly satd to the Interpreter: "What do they mean? What are they talking about?" The Interpreter said, "They say that rock don't belong here." The major said: "Tho deuce it don't! Yon say to those foreigners that I worj't stand for them coming over here and running down our conntry. Tell them that they can find anything anywhere in Colorado." The Frenchmen were right, however, for this black rock was a meteor and had fallen from the Bkiea.—Leadville Herald-Democrat. The Busiest Srreer In the World. West street in New York presents a network of piers and docks for its whole length. Most of the great steamship and railway transportation companies have their pier terminals there, and other steamship companies have built their terminals on the New Jersey shore opposite, so that all trans atlantic and a large share of the con tinental travelers must cross West street in coming to or leaving the city.

The Firat Bnthtnar Machine. There does not seem to be much doubt that the first bathing machine was seen at Margate and that it was the invention of a worthy Quaker named Beale, who placed his hopeful invention on the Margate beach in 1750. "The public are obliged to Ben jamin Beale, one of the people called Quakers, for the invention," writes the author of "A Short Description of the Isle of Thanet," published in 1796. But it was the old story, the public be came grateful after the inventor had been ruined by his enterprise. His successors had reaped the harvest. Old Benjamin Beale's widow could re member in her last dajrs the first fam ily that ever resorted to Margate for the purpose of bathing being carried into the sea in a covered cart. In 1803 Beale's machiues were one of the in stitutions of Margate. It was alarm* Ingly claimed for them that "they may be driven to any depth into the sea by careful guides —T. J?
