Dun & Co.'a weekly review of trade pays: Tiie destruction of a Spanish fleet. Europe's quick appreciation of the feat, the wearying flags of truce at Santiago, and at last the surrender, have all in fluenced some markets day by day. Hut Americans have grown, and traders see that not many outside matters greatly Influence the business, which enables them to market 11,210,274,015 worth of Ccmcstlc products abroad In a year, against JC16.052.SU worth imported. The new loan has proved a stupendous suc cess, over J1.300.0C0.0C0 having te;n sub scribed, and it Is now the question cf chief interest whether any banks will get enough, after personal subscriptions have been actvj ted, to support further circulation. Industries and business are at the naturally lowtst point for the year, and therefore the records are more Impressive. Smaller Output of I'ijj Iron. The decrease in output cf pig Iron from 2-3,373 tons weekly on June 1, to 216,311 on July 1, mostly due to usual stoppages for repairs a little before July 1, carries with it a decrease of 4,216 tons weekly in unsold stocks. If the first and last of the month repre tented average production, the quantl ty censumed in manufacture would be 3.8 per cent, less than the highest ever attained in May, a small decrease for midsummer, but. In fact, the average I reduction was larger and decrease in consumption was smaller. Just when stagnation is customary many mills . are crowded with orders for months, the Illinois rail mills until December or later, with sales this week of 15,0!0 tons, and structural works with a few contracts for 10,000 tons cr more, while larger demands appear for bars, plates and sheets, and better demand fcr bars at the east. One heavy sa!e of billets from Pittsburg to eastern Pennsyl vania at a concession of 50 cents is the only real decline In quotations, though eastern steel tars are a shade lower. I Jet ween Seaoii for Wool. It is still between seasons for wool, but a few larg. purchases Indicate some disposition for business, and the de mand fcr woolen goods Is better, though jrlces for some have been reduced, and the competition as to serges seems likely to be excessive. Sales of wool were but 7,641.700 pounds, 5.521,200 be ing domestic for two weeks of July, against 24.572.S00 pounds last year, of which 11.&C5.600 were domestic. One sale cf 1.500,000 pounds territory at prices lower than are being paid by Boston parties In Montana looks like business In the future. Cotton" has been steady. In spite of gool crop pros pects, cwing to larger foreign buying. The mills in this country are doing their share, and the demand for goods is gradually growing better. Wheat has ben drctping in prices under esti mates of CSC.O iO.OOO to 700 OW.OuO bushel3 this year, which seems to be at least well warranted as overecnss-rvatlve es timates were made by the same parties last year. Inquiry In crops is herald ed: abundance in old regions get no notice. Atlantic ICxport. Western receipts are moderate as yet, tut the Atlantic exports for the week were 1,719,753 bushels, Hour Included, against 1.611.400 last year, and Pacific coast exports 521.514, against 135,763 last year, and for two weeks the exports from both coasts have been 4.8S4.412 bushels, against 3.587,009 last year. The foreign outlook has much Improved, and the decline In price during the week was about 5 cents f t sp jt and Z'2 cents for the nearest options. Corn ex perts are decreasing, as is natural, 2, 557,098 bushels in two weeks of July, against 4,659,315 last year. The price is 1 cent stronger. Failures for the week ending July 7 were $1,854,394 In amount $946,611 manufacturing and $899,763 trading. Failures for the week have been 215 In the United States, against 263 last year, and In Canada twenty-three, against twenty-seven last year. Deadly Art of Kevenge, Owosso, Mich., July 18. Edward Mc Klnder, a farmer, shot his wife twice in the breast, fatally wounding her. He then fired three shots In his own breast. Both are still alive, but neither can re cover. McKinder was the principal wit ness against Mrs. Ursula Durpee, who is serving a year's Imprisonment for abandoning an Infant child. McKln der's wife Is Mrs. Durpee'a foster daughter. He was arrested charged with not supporting his wife, but was acquitted. His act was the result of re venge. JS Yellow Jack Here. Washington, July 18. Surgeon Gen eral Wyman of the marine hospital tervlce says there Is not a single case of yellow fever In this country so far as he know and no preparations are mak ing to receive fever patients. It is his understanding that Secretary Alger will toon order the two companies of sol diers now at Tortugaa off the Florida coast to some other point, and this place will revert to the marine hospital service, in whose custody it wag before the war broke out. I'aeklng Ilooaen Tied I' p. Omaha, July 18. Cudahy'a and Swift's plants are practically tied up by the strike of laborers, and Hammond's is badly affected. Hammond's and Swift's beef butchers have quit in sympathy with the laborers.

CALIXTO GARCIA HAS BEEN LONG IN EXILE. The Wife of the Ilerolo Cuban Leader Ilaa Suffered With tu Patriot Army and In Spaulth Dungeons A Life Filled With Adveuture. (Copyright, 1S9S, by American Press Aso elation. , No woman iu the Cuban colony in New York is bettor known or more popular than Mrs. Calixto Garcia, the wife of that dauntless Cuban general whose name has been so prominently mentioned of late in connection with the landing of the American troops at Daiquiri. Mr & Garcia is tall and of imposing presence, and, though still a handsomo woman, her expressive laco shows traces of her severe experiences as the wife of a soldier who has passed through a greater number of vicissitudes than ordinarily fall to tho lot of such, Like most Cuban women, Mrs. Garcia is do mestic in her tastes, devotes herself to her children and waits anxiously for tho day, now seemingly near at hand, when Cuba shall bo freo and her hus band restored to his homo and family. She married General Garcia when 17 years old, and when the war broko out in Cuba in 1808 sho had three chil- dren, the eldest being then 4 years. Tho Garcia family group at that time com- MRS.

All these risks were voluntarily as sumod by Mrs. Garcia. She could have lived secure beyond the reach of danger, and her husband urged her to forsake the camp. She could not be persuaded to do this, as 6he was desirous of being near him and aiding him iu every way possible. A price was finally placed up on General Garcia's head, and a reward was also offered for the capture of Mrs. Garcia,' owing to the assistance she and her family were giving to tho Cuban cause. Mrs. Garcia in recalling her experi ences recently saia mat a month was the longest they ever remained inVone place, and frequently they could only remain a day. Under such circumstances her son Justo was born iu 1SG9. When 4 days old, the camp was surprised by bpanish guerrillas at night, nud Mrs. Garcia and her children found tempo rary safety in flight. Shortly afterward they were captured and kept prisoners in Havana for two years. When releas cd, she made her way to New York, whero she has resided ever 6ince. After leaving Cuba Mrs. Garcia did not see her husband until his escape from Spain, six years later. Her son Justo is now in a Spauisli prison in Cuba, and another son, Carlos, is with his father fighting to free Cuba Any detailed biographical mention of this truly noble and devoted lady would be incomplete without some notice of at least the salient features in the life of her husband. General Calixto Garcia was born in Holguin, Cuba, in 1840, and is conse quently now in his fifty-eighth , year. He belonged to a wealthy and distin guished family and was educated in Cuba and abroad. He early identified himself with the cause of Cuban liberty and when the Ten Years' war broke out in 1668 made common cause with the revolutionists. This involved much more to him than to the rank and file of the Cuban army, for he had to sacri fice his extensive plantations and other sources of his wealth. In 1874, with a small band of insur gent troops, General Garcia was sur prised by a large force of Spaniards. The small band fought with tho most determined valor; but, surrounded on every side, General Garcia and a few wounded Cubans were all who were left alive. Foreseeing capture inevitable and resolved not to be taken alive, Gen eral Garcia drew a revolver, and plac ing the muzzle beneath his chin pulled the trigger. The ball passed through the roof of his mouth and made its exit through the forehead almost midway between the eyes. A large white scar still marks the spot. Desperate as was the general's condition, the Spanish sur geons saved his life. He was afterward sent as a prisoner to Spain and for a long time was confined in a dungeon. Finally, through the efforts of his fami ly, he was released on parole, one of the conditions being that he should never leave Madrid. When tho present revo lution broke out in Cuba, he communi cated with the leaders in the movement and finally decided to- leave Spain. He took passage ditguised to New York in October, 1895, and for some time after arriving there lived with his family at 889 West Forty-fourth street About the cloee of that year he left ITew York for Cuba and has been ac tively engaged itfflghtlng the Spaniards mr since.

In ye olden time when cleaning day came round the maid tied her apron ot a duster round the broom and swept diligently till tho cloth came off and readjustment was necessary. This was usually made with muttered grumblings about "the tiresome old thing," and by the time the grumblings were over the. cloth was retied, the sweeping r.gain commenced and was continued till all was again loose and the tying had to b6 repeated. The broom cover does away with all this difficulty. It washes admirably, can be made singly or in sets of 2, 4, 6 or 12, according to the probabilities of changing required, and is equally desir able for walls or polished floorsj which it sweeps much more easily than does tho uncovered broom. It forms a most useful gift from a thrifty housekeeper to herself or to a friend. There is so little work that the de script ion takes almost as long as the ac tual making. The proper material is the fuzziest canton flannel which can bo found. The shapo is a plain bag, with drawstrings at top and double ruffie let in at the bottom. The bag part is cut 25 inches wide by 20 inches deep, the ruffie 0 inches wide by 18 or 20 inches long. When completed, the cover is 12 inches wide and 18 inches deep, exclusive of the raffle, which is 2 inches wide.

Ambulance, or hospital, ships aro now a part of the United States navy, as they aro also of other navies. Superior as are tho facilities for caring for tho wounded on our war vessels, there aro various circumstances that tend to retard or prevent recovery. Up to tho present time the quarters for the sick and wounded aboard a warship have prac tically occupied a spaco in the bow, whee the creaking of tho chain is heard unceasingly and the swaying motion of the vessel is more keenly felt than any where else This operated against the recovery of the patients to such an ex tent that Surgeon General Van Reypen remarkod that there would be 25 per cent moro recoveries on a hospital ship than if the patients had remained on the war vessels. The hospital ship Relief, ono of sev? rral such attached to the navy, left New York recently for Santiago with a full complement of nurses and all tho other requisites for the service in which she will bo engaged. Tho vessel flies tho Red Cross flag, with tho stars and stripes just a little below. No land hos pital has a finer equipment than tho Re lief. Sho is provided with all tho ap pliances of modern surgery operating tables, antiseptics and tho most recent and approved instruments. Iu tho cen ter of each hospital ward is a largo bath tub, which can bo inclosed in a canvas curtain when in use. A steam pipo runs along tho largo standing pipe, from which tho water flows, and by n peculiar arrangement of valves hot water can be obtained at any timo by merely turning a valve. Even moro interesting than tho ship are the seven bravo women who were appointed by Surgoon General Stern berg to accompany her in the capacity of nurses. They aro Mrs. Ellen M. Gil len and Mrs. Mary A. Rirchficld of Washington, Miss Elsie II. Lampo and Miss Louisa Jones Block of New York and Miss Amy Blanche Farquharsen, Miss Lucy Ashbysharpo and Amanda J. Armistead of Baltimore. When seen just previous to sailing. all these ladies appeared to bo delighted that they had been appointed to such arduous duties. They spoke as if they thought they had been specially favored in being permitted to serve their coun try and attend to tho wounded who had been fighting its battles. Though they were all brimful of en thusiasm and eager to engage in their duties, they yet displayed their fem inine instincts by taking with them moro clothing and articles of bric-a-brac than could bo well disposed of in their little staterooms.
