A LETTER
ON FINANCES
Weekly Review of the Situa
tion in London.
THE BUSINESS IS GOOD
But Not Quite What it Should be—
Speculation in Mine Shares
Continues Uuabated
New York. Feb. 27.—The Times London
financial correspondent cables:
"Business in a general way continues
good, but we are not yet quite so happy as
I thought we were going to be. We are
afflicted by a multitude of small worries
incident to empire. Money has been rather j
dearer, too, this last week, but was not so
scarce on Friday as was expected. The
amount borrowed at the Bank of England
was therefore moderate and discount
rates arc already advancing. Bills to ar
rive early in March are being taken at 2
per cent. The squeeze, in fact, is quite ]
temporary, caused by a conjunction of
stock exchange payday and the distribu
tion of over £0,760,000 in railway divi
dends. Next month, however, the short
money market is bound to be less easy
than it has been since the new year, al
though there is reason to expect a great
scarcity of cash. Firm money and a weak
discount are most probable.
"Still we are not wholly happy. Our
croakers see a big deficit of £1,000,000 or
more in the national income at the end of
the fiscal year on March 31 and they pre- |
diet more of an income tax. A deficit of j
some amount is certain because 've are i
spending about £60,000,000 on our array
and navy this year and will spend more
next year. But the government can avoid
taxation if it likes by suspending the
wasteful terminable annuities under
whose operation our debt is being redeem- |
ed. That would set free about £4,000,000
estimate and enable us to waste our sub
stance in concert of mind for a few
years more. It would be a terrible affair
if we were obliged to cut down our naval
programme. Tremendous labor troubles
must follow at once and with them the
disorganization of the iron and steel
trades.
"On the stock exchange the strength
and calmness that have prevailed arc
nothing short of wonderful when we con
sider the apprehensions excited by the
sudden death of President Faure and the
state of Paris. Prices have been well
supported and a large amount ol business
has gone on, chiefly, however, of the
speculative kind and still in mine shares
more than in American railroads. What
course the market will take toward these
latter seemed less clear last week than
the week before, but I think the situation
sprang from a slight trepidation about
money rates more than anything else, j
Certainly our people and newspapers j
have received the Central Pacific and |
Southern Pacific scheme, well not en- |
thusiastically, it is true, but sensibly, and
have adopted it. With more such stum
bling blocks put to one side, a clearer
course for a well sustained advance in
prices is open.
"But you must continue to lead, as a
failing wheat market alone will frighten
off our still timid buyers. Our mill wall
dock scandal, a petty affair in itself, illus
trates one of our commenest stock vices—
the habit of paying dividends out of the
capital. The mill wall people collected
less revenue than they paid away in divi
dends and so carried accounts in the r
books as still due that had been paid
years ago and sold fresh preference stock
from time to time to make good the gap.
In this way debts due the company rose
from about £22,000 to £230,000 in the i
course of a few years. Many companies I
play the same tricks, as well as other I
cards, either to write up leaseholds or re- |
frain from writing down or charging re
pairs and renewals against the capital,
thus eating up their substance and leav
ing the husks to posterity.
A VALUABLE PRIVILEGE.
Tt has long been the practice of the two
branches of congress to accord the privi
leges of the floor to ex-members. An ex
senator is permitted to go upon the floor
of the senate during the session, although
he is not allowed upon the floor of the
house. The same is true of ex-member3
of the house. They have the courtesies
of the house floor, but not of the senate.
There are times when this privilege
stands them in good stead. It is partic
ularly valuable to the former representa
tives who have joined the lobby. Scores
of ex-representatives have been elected
•to membership in the "third house," and
they find their prerogative of going in
without knocking invaluable. There are
few lobbyists, however, who have not
been members of congress, and who oft n
times have occasion to go inside while
the legislative wheels are in motion. As
only senators, representatives and ex
members and employes are given the
floor, the lobbyist who is not an "ex" is
debarrred. The slxrewd promoter, how
ever, has found a way to circumvent this
obstacle, and when he has business in
side he. rushes past the doorkeeper, say
ing as he hurries by: "Ex." This prac
tice is followed almost daily by the pro
gressive members of the "third house,"
who have found it quite easy to befool
the guileless door-tenders.—Washington
Telegram to the New York World.
MAKING MIRRORS.
St. Louis Globe-Democrat: The mirror
making industry in the United States
employs more than 2,000 persons, and the
product is valued at about $S.000,006 a
year. The first step in the manufacture
is the adjustment of a smooth stone table.
Aroung this table, which can be canted to
one side by means of a set screw beneath,
is a groove, in which mercury may flow
and drop from one corner into bowls. The
table is made perfectly level, and then
tinfoil is carefully laid over it, covering
a greater space than the glass to be coat
ed. The metal is then poured from ladles
upon the foil till it is nearly a quarter of
an inch deep, befng prevented from flow
ing off by a strip of glass placed along
three sides of the foil. From the open
side Is slid on the plate of glass, whose
advancing edge is kept in the mercury,
so that no air or floating oxide of the
metal or other impurities can work in be
tween the glass and the clean surface of
TUMOR EXPELLED.
Unqualified Success of Lydia E.
Pinkham's "Vegetable Compound.
•4
K.
Mrs. Elizabeth Wiieei.ock, Magno
lia, Iowa, in the following letter de
scribes her recovery from a very criti
cal condition:
" Dkar Mrs. Pixkfiam:— I have been
taking your Vegetable Compound, and
am now ready to sound
its praises. It
has done won
ders for me in
relieving m®
of a tumor.
" My health
has been poor
fortliree years.
Change of lifa
was woruing
upon me. I
was very
' much bloated
and was a bur
den to myself. Was troubled with
smothering spells, also palpitation of
the heart and that bearing-down feel
ing, and could not be on my feet much.
"I was growing worse all the time,
until I took your medicine.
"After taking three boxes of Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
Lozenges, the tumor passed from me.
"My health has been better ever
since, can now walk quite a distance
and am troubled no more with palpita
tion of the heart or bloating. I rec
ommend your medicine to all sufferers
from female troubles."
It is hardly reasonable to suppose
that any one can doubt the efficiency
of Mrs. Pinkham's methods and medi
cine in the face of the tremendous vol
ume of testimony.
the mercury. When Us desired position
has been reached it is held until one edge
of the table has been raised, and the
superfluous mercury has run off. It is left
for several hours, and then placed upon
a frame, the "hack" by this time being
covered with the amalgam, which ad
heres to it. After the amalgam becomes
hard the plate is ready for use. Mirror
making is generally thought to be dan
gerous on account of the injury to the
health of the operators from the fumes of
the quicksilver, but the figures collated
by the insurance companies do not appear
to sustain this belief.
FUNNY HONEYMOONS.
A few years ago a newly wedded couple
living 10 miles southeast of Broolcville,
Ky„ took as a honeymoon trip a wagon
ride to witness the hanging of Robert
McLaughlin, which occurred at Brook
ville,
A short while since an adventurous
couple spent their first days of wedded
life on the summit of Mount Blanc. The
ascent, extremely hazardous by reason of
terifie snowstorms, being successfully ac
complished, and the summit reached, the
bridegroom, in the presence of the guides,
embraced his young wife, to whom he
swore eternal fidelity, and received from
her lips an equally fervent assurance.
Then the descent was commenced, and
the couple, after three days' absence, ar
rived at Chamounix, where they were ac
corded an enthusiastic reception.
There are of record four honeymoons
known to have been spent in Mammoth
Cave, Kentucky.
In the neighborhod of Dobschau, a
small Hungarian town, there is an extra
ordinary ice cave. The roof, the walls,
the floor are thickly coated with ice,
which in places assumes most fantastic
shapes. In this cove, some 10 years ago,
a couple named Kolcsey elected to pass
the week immediately following their
marriage. They took with them a plenti
ful supply of rugs, blankets and warm
clothing, but notwithstanding all pre
cautions their experience was not of a
sufficiently pleasant nature to tempt imi
tators.
NAMING THE BOYS.
American hero worship lias reached Us
high tide in this city. A certain doctor,
who has a large practice, has gathered
some remarkable statistics, showing that
the rising generation will have cause to
keep green the memory of our war and
naval heroes. Since the battle of Manila
the doctor lias ushered into the world 31
Deweys, 12 Hobsons, 9 Sehleys, 4 Samp
sons and 1 Miles. Perhaps, however, the
most interesting part of the statistics
comes from the names given tha dumb
animals in the households the doctor
visits. In the list there are 60 dogs, 40
cats and 19 goats, to say nothing of nu
merous birds and other pets. These all
bear the names of the heroes of the Span
ish war, and the relative proportion of
favorite names is about the same as in
the case of children. Strange to say,
however, nearly all the goats are called
"Sampson." The doctor says this is un
doubtedly due to the fact that the hand
some admiral wears a heavy beard, while
none of the other heroes do.
TRAVELED AS LIVE STOCK.
Miss Mary A. Livermore, the well
known social reformer, once traveled as
"live stock" in order to keep an appoint
ment to speak at a meeting in Cincinnati.
She had missed her train, and a cattle
train was to lea^e in seven minutes. "You
see that I can't take you, madam," said
the conductor, showing Instructions
which forbade him taking any freight but
live stock. "You will have to wait for the
next train."
"if I am not 'live stock' will you please
tell me what I am?" queried the lady, and
after a moment's thought the conductor
weighed and billed her as regular live
stock freight, and gave her the usual live
stock receipt when she paid the charges.
HOW IT MIGHT BE EXPLAINED.
"There's no understanding some of
these people!" exclaimed the manager
as he sat in his office and thought over
the happenings of the previous night.
"Now, there was a fellow in the par
quet last night who grumbled and
growled and kicked almost from the
moment he entered, and yet I saw him
applauding most energetically when the
curtain went down on the last act. How
can you explain such inconsistency as
that?"
"Perhaps it was not inconsistency at
all,' 'answered the visiting newspaper
man. "Perhaps he was applauding be
cause the curtain was going down on the
last act."
l
SAVED BY A TEARDROP.
He woke from the grasp of a drunken
sleep with the pains of hell in his
head,
And tossed as if lying on cruel thorns
that were hid in his chamber bed.
His throat was parched and his lips were
dry and his eyes had a fiery gleam,
And his drink-fluslied face seemed to yet
reflect the scenes of delirious dream.
He cried to his wife for a cooling drink,
and in maudlin expression cursed
The hidden fires that within him burned
to cause such a damning thirst.
And as he held with a pale white hand
the draught for his lips to sup.
The flood of lier wifely grief burst forth,
and a teardrop fell in the cup.
•v
Deep down in his heart there slumbefied
yet a love for the dear one he
Had promised to cherish and protect in
joy or adversity,
And the falling tear caught his rum
iired eye and the iron pierced deep
his soul
As he held to his fever-parched, lips the
cooling, refreshing bowl.
He turned his eyes to the pain-pajed
face, and remorse like a keen-edged
dart
Pierced deeply Into the quivering depths
of his newly-awakening heart.
And he drew her down in a warm em
brace and wiped the tears from lier
eyes,
His bosom rent to its inner depth by a
flood of repentant sighs.
"I see it now, my beloved!" he cried,
"though blind I have been in the
past,
The eyes long dimmed by the cursed
fiend of drink are opened at last!
It all comes now as I backward glance
o'er the thorn-studden trail of years
That instead of filling your eup with joy
I've been drinking your bitterest
tears!
But never again shall an act of mine
bring pain to your faithful heart,
And never again from your loyal eyes
shall a teardrop of anguish start;
One kiss of forgiveness is all I ask; it
will snatch me from the brink.
And give me courage to rend the chain
of the cursed demon of drink."
The sunlight, falls on that happy home in
beautiful golden rays,
A glad return of the olden light that'lu
mined their former days;
And the look of pain no more clouds her
face, and her soul is free from
alarms
When she hears his step at the door and
flies to meet the clasp of his arms.
The lovelight born when she was a bride
burns softly in her wifely eyes,
And a joyous heart warms the sacred
depths of the bosom once torn with
.sighs,
And oft she kneels on her chamber floor
and her gratitude offers up
To the merciful Master above, who sent
the teardop that fell in the cup.
—Denver Posl.

daily aim and practice of each.
Never let the sun go down upon any
anger or grievance.
Never neglect one another; rather ; rte
glect the whole world besides. u

earth is the cultivation, on both sides, of
absolute unselfishness.

With one exception, the through
trains of the Burlington Route are
almost invariably well-filled. The
exception is our St. Paul-Chicago
Limited. On the Limited there Is
usually room and to spare.
Don't infer that It is neither so
fine, nor so fast, as ANY train of
ANY other line between St. Paul
and Chicago. On the contrary,
there is no more beautiful train in
America. It has electric light,
steam heat, wide vestibules, the
most satisfactory dining-car ser
vice on the continent—and a lower
berth for anybody.
