NEW YOBK, Feb. 21.?'The market
yesterday gave unmistakable evidence ,
of a {disposition to shake off the apathy
and timidity which have been Its
chief characteristics ever since the
eairly part of the year. Stocks of al- ,
most all descriptions were taken with
apparent freedom and confidence, rails
and shippings alone showing compara- j
tive backwardness.
Deallnngs were on a broader and
Iirger scale than at any time within
tie last fortnight and included an un- j
usual variety of issues, but seasoned j <
, or representative stocks were most in j
? , favor, especially industrials, metals ;
/ and equipments. , i
Commission houses reported a mod-1
W crate revival of public interest, but a ! I

which amounted to 630.000 shares, re- i

over-extendeil short interest.
