The gigantic tropical firellies which
swarm in the forests and i-aiu-brakcs
of most of the low lying West Indian
i.slands once proved the salvation of
the city of San Domingo. A body of
buccaneers, headed by the notorious
Thomas Cavendish, had laid all th"ir
plans for a df scent upon the place,
intending to massacre the inhabitants
and carry away all the treasure they
conveniently could, and had actually
put off their beats for that purpn,e.
As they approached the land, however,
rowing with niu!"' -1 ears, they -..ere
greatly surprised to see an in.'tnifr'

that the Spaniards knew of their ap
proach, they put about and regained
their ship without attempting to laud.

It. G. Dun k Co.'s weekly review of

"While an excellent exhibit appeiits
ln both aggregate payments through

Weather conditions and the unset

modities are the causes assigned for
the quieter tone of trade In many
lines. Retail business and, to a cer
tain extent, reorder demand from job
bers, was affected by the return early

influences were, however, largely tem

by the decided benefit to the crop out
