There 1k evident, however, a meas urable Improvement In the tone of af fairs commercial and indiistrl.il, a partial reflection, perhaps of the better feeling in financial lines, and the belief Is grow ing that the stock market is discounting future trade Improvement. The most significant feature In actual trade circles Is, perhaps, the wider acceptances of the belief noted In the cotton goods trade last week, that this branch of trade has seen the bottom as to price. That this feeling has been strengthened by the sharp rise In the raw cotton market Is beyond question but there are certainly evidences of a greater willingness to take bold for fall In several lines of cottons, there are reports nf a slight gain in orders by woolen manufacturers and large auction sales, of carpets and silk ribbon" have developed demand at a price. Ilrlefly stated in fact, there is a disposition to go forward cautiously but with moro confidence than was earlier exhibited, f'ollectlnns as a whole are still back ward, railroad earnings for April show a decrease of 1! per cent from April a year ago, the largest monthly decrease yet shown, and Idle ears are of a re cord total.

Hut I.I t He Clinncc In Manufacturing Circle. New York. -May 1.'. It. O. Dun & Co.'s weekly review of trade to-morrow will pay: Trade conditions are most responsive to the weather at this time of year, and more seasonable temperature brought distinct Improvement during the past week, especially In retail sales of wear ing apparel. Crops have also made good progress, the vHlent rise in the prices of cotton being purely speculative and In no degree due to definite evidence of decreased yield. Little net change Is noted In manufacturing activities. Ituyeri nre assembling at primary mar kets to attend to attend special sales, and stocks of staple goods are running low in retail stores because of conserva tive purchases. Mercantile collections are more prompt, but than sporting condi tions are at the least satisfactory point of the year thus far, 10 per cent, of the freight cars being idle while gross rail way earnings in the first week of May were per cent, less than a year ago, Voreign commerce at this port continues to make poor exhibits as compared with the figures a year ago. Money continues abundant and easy, despite the resump tion of gold exports and further with drawals of puhlic funds by the treasury. Commercial failures this week In the Cnlted States are 5f, nCainsl ,Wi last week, nS'l the preceding week, and 2rti the corresponding week list year. Failures in Canada numbered 25 against IS last week, 10 the preceding week and V, jast year. Tills woman says thnt after months nf suffering Lydia E.

Telephone Development of the cw llngltind N?Htcni In cimi. When the New Kngland Telephone and Telegraph company was formed, 25 years ago II. Is fill, its constituent ruin-panii-- had a tnt.il of .ihout .'.,or tele phone!, in operilion. The progrej-s of tel ephnn. m thr section of the world dur ing the intervening quarter of a century I Indicated by the fact that nt the end of 1007 the New llnglind conip.in's sys tfm in the States of Maine. New Hamp shire, Vermont and Massachusctt had ifl.Mil telephones connected with it. At the present time there are more than ,TM, u lejenhoncs so connected. To supply this service, upward of 600 nxchanges are In operation, connecting more than WO.iwi miles of wire, over whleh pass ion,n,0no conversations in the course of a single year. To carry on this tremendous business, with Its rami fications extending to almost every town YOUR FAMILY HISTORY SHOULD BE PR I NT tD f WR MA ICR A SPECIALTY OF GENE OLOOICAL WORK. FREE PRESS ASSOCIATION, .BURLINGTON, YT. ' ', In the four States, an army of S52S em p'.oyce iias to be maintained, this num ber of employees being pretty evenly divided between men and women. These figures are tuk.cn from the an nual report of President Shcrwin. and are full of Interest to the student of economics. Children of today accept the telephone as a matter-of-fact conven ience, yet their fathers and mothers re member when It was considered a mar vellous invention. And so It was, but none the less marvellous has been Its progress. The crude Instruments have given way to modern ones that represent the last word In mechanical perfection. The long waits for connections that characterized the early days of the art have disappeared before a service that Is almost instantaneous. Induction and other troubles have, been diagnosed and remedied until transmission Is now al most perfect. These Improvements represent not only patient experiment but large investment. As Gen. Slierwin says in a paragraph In his report, "Little or nothing remains of the plant over which, twenty years ago, the business was conducted. Central of fice apparatus In the exchanges has been superseded, time after time by that nf newer design and greater efficiency and capacity. The grounded line isystem of connection has wholly given place to metallic circuits, and aerial construction In largo part to that of underground con duit and cables." That It has been worth while tn make this expenditure In order to keep pace with the vanguard of progress, Is shown b;i the statement that the gross revenue of this company for the year 1507 was $10,(179, CTi.7'. Expenses amounted to M."..IJ2.iVI. There was an Increase In the net revenue of t1fj,H."2.7L, Only "?..'.:' stations were added tn the New England company and Its assoclat- er during the year, a comparatively small number. Owing to high borrowing rates, however, It was deemed wiser not to push for bii'lness requiring heavy out lays for construction. General Shcrwin po.nts nut very clearly the threefold responsibility of the direc tors "to provide for subscribers and the public a service of the highest attainable excellence and value, at equitable rates', to care for the well-being and reasonable compensation of the thousands of em ploys who serve with efficiency and fidelity the Interests of the company and the community; and tn secure to stock holders, who have paid many millions of dollars Into the treasury for the build ing up and extension of the system of such enormous utility and value to the people nf these States, a fair return up on their Investment." Here, In a single sentence, Is set fnrfh the true balance of a public i-ervice cor poration Its relation to the puhlic. tn Its employees, and to its stockholders. In this connection. It Is stated that n.1 per rent, of the total number nf .stockholders are residents nf the States of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massa chusetts. Another phn.e of this question Is touched as follows: "In no other bitsMiess is there a closer relation and more distinct Identity of In tercft than that which exists between the company which furnishes this ser vice, and the subscribers who employ It. of the community as a whole. It is for the Interest of both that the high stand nrds of serviro be maintained, that the rates for service and revenues nf the company be adequate to provide for the operation, repair and renewal of the plant to the end that the service imy he so maintained; and to provide further that such return be made tn the Invest .ors who have put their capital Into and assumed the hazards nf the business, that fuitlier capital may be forthcoming as required for the continued extension and Improvement of the system." The statement 1 lift t this company now operates l.'.O.OTTi miles nf toll wire opens up another line of thought on which to base some comparisons with coihlltions that existed as recently as ' years ago. Today one talks from n p-iy station v any part of the territory of the New England company without giving the matter a second thought, and business men use the long distance lines to New York, Chicago, St. I.ouls and other places, !.ess than a quarter of a cen tury ago, however, a conversation bet ween places 50 miles apart was deemed remarkable. In fact, the telephone has affected the entire organization of busi ness. The little companies existing here and there, many of them wjthout con nection with each other, gave way to one large company, and the latter, by providing on a broad scale the means of Intercommunication has brought together not only villages and cities but States and great sections of the country. IK HE KNOWS THAT. UK'S WISE. The one thing n man enn under stand about n woman Is that he doesn't. Now York Tress. (From the Mrooltlyn Eagle.) Hotter look closer at the money paid to j on. There may be some queer stuff In It. Vou may find, for example, ii bill or two th.it exhibit the eccentricity of having two faces ami no back. Quite a lot of thla sort of paper cash Is In cir culation Just at present. The secret of It Is a brand new swindle which the secret service has only Just discovered. Gov ernment sleuths are hunting It down and hope soon to land the guilty parties In Jail, but, meanwhile, a rich haul has been made by certain Ingenious persons, One curious feature of the fraud Is that the worthless currency concerned, with which parts of the West and South have been Hooded, Is not counterfeit nt all, but real money. Thnt Is to say, It was perfectly good once upon u time, though valueless to-dny. Certain Male bunks It appears, such as the Merchants nnd Planters of At lanta, which became defunct long ago, used to Issue notes, which 111 general ap pearance closely resembled the national bank notes of to-day. When they went out of business, great qualities of their currcn, being no longer redeemable, were Mild ns waste paper. Millions of dollars woith of the stuff, i'.i value rep resented, eventually found Its way Into the hands of unscrupnl'.nis dealers, who are scattering It wide!, nml passing it off nl real money. The notes In question were printed only on one side, the backs being blank a fact which would deter even Ignorant people from 'accepting them, were It not that resort Is had to the clever expedi ent of pasting two of them together, baik to back. Tew persons to whom money Is paid take the trouble to ex amine both sides of It, and, accordingly, the bills thus disguised readily pass cur rent. As an Incidental touch, to lend verisimilitude, silk threads are scattered between Ihc two halve.! of each com posite note, Imitating the liber In the paper used by the government. Anything that imitates the currency, and which is not counterfeit, conies under tin1 head of what the secret service calls "flash" money a designation technically applicable to these defunct notes, though once they were lawful cash. Most flash noney, however, is issued for iidvertls tig purposes merely, and would be harm less, were it not that It Is frequently passed off upon Ignorant people, particu larly newly arrived aliens, as a mode nf swindling them. On this account, the manufacture and circulation of all such stuff are discountenanced and prohibited. One finds In cigar stores, nowadays, for sale, at "10 cents for $1,000 worth," so called "tainted money," which looks a good deal like treasury notes, being marked with various denominations from to to $100. Many persons buy it, just for fun. It annoys the secret service a good deal, but the selling of It cannot he stopped In some localities, though unlaw ful In others. If the b""i district at torney decides thnt it (c . s not violate the law, It cannot be confiscated. Thus It happens that an Imitation of the currency Is lawful in one jurisdic tion, nnd not so In another, nut, legal or not, "fake" money Is something that people, will persist In making, nnd not all the efforts of the government au thorities have sufficed tn put a stop to It. Thanks to the persistent efforts of the secret service, counterfeiting has been practically stopped In this country, but the manufacture of the "flash" stuff goes merrily on. In the South, n few .years ago. considerable quantities of pasteboard money were In circulation ! among the negroes. The total quantity of counterfeits, both piper and coin, captured during the last fiscal year was less than $27'). Of flash money is concerned, few more was relatively enormous. During eight consecutive j ears no less than $i;,VM1finn worth of the stuff fin value represented) was seized and destroyed. Artists even paint pictures, some of which are beauti fully executed, representing greenbacks. riiil not long ago a brush drawing on a $2 silver certificate, two feet long, was captured In Newark, where a bootmaker was using It to advertise the fact that this sum would buy any pair nf shoes In his window. The walls of the office of the chief of the secret service at Washington are handsomely adorned with paintings nf this kind, which have been confiscated at various times. Rut, where ordinary "flash money" is concerned, few more artistic examples have been turned out than some baseball currency which found Its way Into circulation In Chicago a while ago, with an attractive picture of the Wlndv city team or. the hick. If the treasury permitted this sort of thing, the whole country would soon be flooded with Mich imitations. Men used to actually travel about with engraved plates nnd lake orders from business firms for quintltles of near money In the form of small handbils. one-third of which was n fair Imitation of a banknote while the remaining two thirds were occupied by an advertise ment. This was stopped. Pasteboard wallets with greenbacks sticking out at the ends (which deluded people were ex pected to pick up on the streets) were formerly manufactured In large quanti ties. The government confiscated them wholesale. Rut there are some evasions of th" law relating to this matter which are hard tn deal with! for example, the metal disk for cheating slot machines. Disks of this kind, exactly the size of nickels and cents, are manufactured on an extensive scale in New York. At first thui Is to saw n few years ngo-they were made to bear a rude resemblance to the real coins- but this was stopped by the seei el service, nnd nowadays they are mere blanks. They are quite as effective, however, for the purpose for which they are Intended, and by their means many a slot machine has been emptied of Its contents. Nothing Interest people so much, ap parently, us money, it la constantly being imitated In one way or another by people who have not the slightest notion that they are violating the law. in one In stance n storekeeper Issued n bill of his own, as like n real one as he could make It. with his own signature on the face and on the hack an Inconspicuous advertisement. Even restaurant commu tation tickets have adopted similar de signs. But queerest of all was a consign ment of Imitation silver dollars, from Germany, which, while producing the design of our standard dollar, contained, each of them, three small knife blades and a button hook. It would he absurd to suppose that any fraud was Intended' by the Importer of these Imitation dollars, or by the shop keeper, who Issued the note with his own signature attached, hut, mainly fnr the reason already mentioned, the gov eminent cannot possibly permit that tort The Red 46 Dry Goods Store.
