Thero never was as fino an opportu nity for speculation or a ohanco for persons of small means to sccuro a homo as is offered in the Kirkpatiick addition to Waoo. It embraces about sixteen hundred lots, each one of which will iu ten years bo worth ten times the prico for wbioh they can now bo bought. Theso lots lie high and dry and on an elevation overlook ing a largo part of tho city. They aro oloso to tho business port'on of tho city, muoh nearer than Dickey's hill, where lots aro worth ono thous and dollars and muoh nearer than many other additions where lots aro soiling for threo times tho amount asked for lots in this addition. Near ness to tho center of tho city is tho key to succesifnl speculation. Tho soil is a fertile loam, tho finest in Waoo for gardens and frjit. Tho wbolo traot is underlaid with tho purest of water at a depth of from fifteon to sixteen feet and is found in the gravel and in inexhaustible quan tities, making irrigation by wells perfectly feasible. The wholo traot is oovered with a Jouog growth of forest trees, tho most eauutul ones of which can be saved, thus giving at once for a homo a beau tiful shade which on barolots oan only be obtained by great expense and years of watting. Jn all rcspcots the Kirkpatiok addition oilers tho best op portunity fortcrsoua of sma 1 means to acquiro beautiful residonco proper ty tb'at has ocourrod in the last live years. It is a ohanoo that will never occur again and it may not last long. Tho prices at which theso lots are be ing sold and the easy terms is attract ing prudent penplo and it has always been tbo case that property rapidly advances when a fow peoplo bogin to make homes. Now it a golden oppor tunity for clerks, mechanics and la boring people, and it is ono they will never seo again in tho history of Waoo. Jt is absolutely the last obance. Property tho saino distance up the river is Belling at threo times the prico for whioh these lots are offered And yot aro not nearly as desirable. Co-Partnorship Notice.

Tbo Year 1802 Olvri Promise or Gcnorul I'rovperlt) Compared ivlt'i 1891 Tlio Now Ycur lluw Shown 11 Decided Improvement Already. Nkw York, January 9. Tho first week of tho now year ex hibits tho general activity in the stock market, that our recent weekly advices foreshadowed. Tho disburse ment of over one hundred millions of January interest and dividends, is at tended with an eotivo demand ior bonds and for dividend-paying stooks; and those purchases liavo given a stimulus to tho latent feeling in favor of highci prices, and developed an aotive speculative movement, un der which prices havo advanced throughout the list. Tbo transactions on tho exebango havo doubled the volumo prevailing during the quiet of several proceeding weeks, and symp toms seem to favor tho preponder ant opinion that a campaign of un usual aotivity has set in, which is likely to be continued throughout the year. Opinions differ as to tho results of tho past year's business of tho coun try ; some maintaining that neither inanulajturers nor merohants havo made their usual profits, whilo others bold that tho quiet of business has been due mainly to conservatism fol lowing tbo crisis of IS9O and that, aher all, tho business of 1891 has left neatly an average rato of profit. On this question, more than upon any other condition depends the future couiso of tho stock market; and the ourrent month will solvo the problem. In tho meantime, tho "street" is not likely to jump to any positivo opin ions on this point, but is likely to sus tain tho market until it is settled what may bo expected from-the "out sido'' element. In the meantime, thero is likely to bo somo realizing on recent profit, which probably range between 2 and 5 points and arc there fore tempting to prudont operators That process, indoed, is now in opera tion; but us such salos are soon fol lowed by ro purchases they havo no marked iffeot upon prices. It it especiahy important to keop in view the fact that a new and import ant group of stocks will from this time come into prominenoo through the forwarding of the corn crop. The department of agrioulture estimates the out turn of that crop at 2 000, 000,000 bushels, whioh is tho largest but ono over realized. It is tho last crop to oomo into the market, and is now beginning to bo moved. The securities of tho roads dependent upon this grain have, in u degree, sympa thized with tho improvement in tho 0 Dances of the roads serving tbo wheat bolt; but tbcro is still a liberal margin for furthor advanco to oomo from tho futuro reports of actual in crease of traffic; and this lengthening of the libt of roads showing large in creases oan hardly fail to havo tho effect of advancing prices later. It will bo tho infusion of now stoam to roplaoe that whioh has evaporated, and will thorcforo act as a sustaining force to the goneral markot. It is questionabla whether sufficient im portance has been attached to tho volumo of this year's supply of grain destined to come to the seaboard. Co incident with our unpreoedonted crops (the whoit crop being now officially reported at 012,000,000 bush clt-), thero is a general dtifioienoy in Europe, and the Russian export is now wholly cut off, while Russia herself may have to im port. It is, therefore, quito possible SHOES i that our year's export of wheat and flour may reach 200,000,000 bushels, and our corn shipments may show a similar rato of increase This means a very important inoreaso in tbo grain tonnage of tho trunk roads connect ing with the west; and at tho samo time, tho full oooupation of tho roll ing Btook of thoso roads is calculat ed to maintain rates of freight. The homo situation, therefore, inoludes elements calcultcd to stimulate a fu turo advanco in stooks beyond what has been so far realized; but, as tho present tone of tho markot is con servatively "bullish" rather than high ly sanguine, prudent operators are likely to rcalizo upon tho profits of the late advanco in tho hope of bnying Iback upon reactions; and wo commend thnt policy for tho moment to our friends.
