The special dispatches to The Daily
News of yesterday from its correspon
dents in Washington and Jacksonville,
gave assurance of the final and favorable
decision of the President in the matter of
the long talked of Florida trip. The
Chief Magistrate is to arrive next
Wednesday in Jacksonville, stopping
there on his way to St. Augustine, to
visit the Sub-Tropical Exposition, and
making this city the terminus of his
journey, where he will spend a night
and the greater part of two days. lie is
expected in the Ancient City
Thursday morning, very quietly and
unostentatiously. The management
of the Ponce de Leon have been busily
engaged making preparations for the
entertainment of the distinguished
guests, . The magnificent suite of rooms
in the western wing, known as the bridal
chambers, will be made ready for the
President and Mrs. Cleveland and other
rooms on the same floor and in the vi
cinity wilj doubtless be occupied by the
other members of the President's ira
mediate party, consisting of Secretary
"Whitney and wife, Col. Daniel Lamont
and wife, and possibly Secretaries Fair
child and Vilas and their wived. On
the arrival of the special train the party
will be met at the depot by a guard of
honor, detailed from the Second
Artillery, TJ. S. A., who will act as an
escort from the depot to the hotel. Gen.
Ayres, commandant of the post, will act
as commanding officer, and with Rear
Admiral Upshur and other distinguished
military and naval officers at present in
the city, will join in the pleasing duty
of making the President's visit agree
able. The remainder of the Second
Artillery will be posted for guard duty
near the entrance of the hotel.
Once within the hospitable portals of
the Ponce de Leon, the party will be
come.the honored guests of the house and
will pass through the quadrangle to the
main entrance between files of employes
in full uniform and be received at the
doors of the rotunda by the proprietor,
while the Ponce de Leon military band
will discourse appropriate music from
the central balcony above. Arrived
within, the party will be enabled to en
joy a period of welcome rest and retire
ment, unmolested by the public, who
will be given an opportunity later to pay
- their respects to the President and Mrs.
Kefreshed by this season of respite
from the excitement of their public
reception in Jacksonville, and by appro
priate services of the mid-day luncheon,
an informal reception will be in order
for the especial benefit of local officials
and friends and acquaintances of the
party resident in the city and among
the guests of the Ponce de Leon and
other hotels. A public reception will
doubtless take place later in the day,
and a brief drive about the city will also
probably be included in the programme,
At night the entire building and grounds
will be elaborately decorated and bril
liantly illuminated in a manner quite
unique and startling.
Such substantially will be the order of
arrangements, the intention being to
have them as quiet, simple and unosten
tatious as possible, giving the dis
tinguished guests as much opportunity
as possible for rest aud quiet enjoyment
of their visit, instead of the worry aud
turmoil of a formal public reception.
1 he arrangement are in the hands of
those who can scarcely fail to make the
occasion a season of real en joyment to
the Presidential party.

more active market are expressed . Thero was
some talk, however, of a movement by holders
of securities to have railroad rates controlled
by State Commissions, and it gains strength
every day. London buvers in early trading
took all floating stocks, and the imj rovement
begun yesterday made further progress, aided
by some pressure to cover shorts. Union

General Markets.
Chicago. February 16. There was consid
erable activity on 'Change during the morn-
ng. At the ooening unces tor leaning grains
were unchanged, but trading was limited, as it
was at first closely watched, there being much
uncertainty what sort of action would follow
yesterday's sharp declines. Before there was
any decided action in grain the bears began a
raid on provisions, their ellorts being mainly
directed against pork. By preconcerted selling
and sensational offerings below the market the
nrice broke 50 cents in short order, lliede-
cline'in May was from $14.30 to $i3.!). Of course
a reaction loiioweu. i lie nreaa snaucea targe
packers and bears who have been short sev
eral months to liegin covering. Large lines
were rauidlv absorlied. and the decline was
stopped and prices started upward, and before
long had leaded to $14.10. Trailing decreased
somewhat after midday; the feeling became
nervous, values receded to $13.924. out closed
at $l4iti.l4.32. below last night's close.
Short ribs were active ana ueennea lit to i
cents, but reacted 2W to 5 cents and closed
steady; offerings by scattering holders were
large, nut miyers ansoroea mem quite reaaiiy.
Lard was slow but held up stubbornly. May
sold at $7.67Hr'7.75, closing at $7.75.
Corn was an interesting niamet. on eanv
weakness in pork the crowd pounded it and
succeeded in getting themselves very short.
May oiened at 504, sold down to 50, but about
the time pork turned upward there were some
buying orders, which caused a second Hurry. A
bulge was started by two or three local houses
bidding W cent over the market, which started
the crowd, and there was a scramble for cover.
In afew minutes May jumped from oO to 59.14,
and before noon sold at 5tAi, finally closing at
ftui. There was nothing in ad vices to warrant
any neiter prices tor wneai mis morning man
on yesterday. T.he ciowd was ready for a re
action, tint it was delayed by a raid on pork.
The closing hour was more quiet, and May
hung around 8uynWHi'4, and closed lor the day

lufincune of dot and Cold Ruths.
A French investigator has recently stndlfd
th? in2ue:iTO of cold and hot baths opou tbe
respiratory tuul imtritive processes. His con
clusion is that under tbe influence of cold
baths more oxygen is absorbed and more
carbonic acid is expelled. At the same time
more air passes through the lungs. Hoc baths
act in a similar manner, but in a less marked
degree. . -

"Does this lino of people begin at the Bat
tery!" was asked at the ticket ofliee window
of the Grand Central station the other day.
"chit in nuJoeean, I should jude," was th
laconic reply of the jumping jack inside tha
window, who flew from side to side playing a
wild game of tickets and coins 011 the broad
sill, as the line passed between him and tha
brass rail outside.
"Hove on into the corner to count your
change," the stalwart policeman on the out
side whispers to any one who dallies a frac
tion of a second in front of the cage.
Men sweep the whole of their change to
gether with their left hands. Women invari
ably stop to count the pieces in a dazed,
fumbling sort of way born of suspicion, ner
vousness, tight gloves and many packages.
Now and again a neat little tailor mods
Boston girl sweeps oil tho change like any
young dude, bettering him by having a neat
little purse in her left hand, which snaps vi
ciously as she tilts her nose and her oxidized
sliver umbrella handle toward tho big chan
delier and passes by.
"From ten to fifteen thousand people. pas3
by between this window and that brass rod
daily," gasped the jumping jack, wiping tho
perspiration from his brow as the gong
sounded and the last man biro through the
gate, his cane punching into the stomach of tho
big fat policeman, and his coat tail atching
on the complacent brass knob. "Tho work
is divided between three men."
"Don't you find coins very inconvenient
for hasty handling?"
"An infernal nuisance. I wish all money
was in cardlioard, like tickets, ffe have so
many pennies, too, because we cliarge a fixed
rate per mile." New York Sun.
Tea Picture of Stockholm.
TVe entered Stockholm in the full glare of
a midday sun, and drove immediately to tho
spacious Grand hotel, which looked out on
the water just opposite the royal palace.
After taking our dinner we took a stroll
around the city and saw in our walk the
palace of the crown prince, which is not
occupied at present, on Gustave Adolph lorg
(lorg meaning place) and the opera house, a
building very similar, just opposite. We
then crossed the bridge to tho island, on
which stands the ilace, and at our request
the attendant showed us through, as the
royal family were in the country.
The apartments of the king and queen ara
both beautiful and magnificent, but to a
great many the home like suite of tho crown
prince and princess, and particularly their
private apartment, are preferable, as through
them prevails an air of comfort and cozinesa
dear to Americans. We then returned for
our supper and for dessert. They brought
us some pancakes, a specialty of the country.
The day following we visited tho museum
and the churches, also the beautiful environs
of Stockholm, incluiling the castles of the
Gripsholm and Drothingholzn. In tho even
ings there were numerous gardens with mili
tary bands, the Swedish punch liting the fa
vored beverage. In what is called tho DJur
garten or deer park there are a theatre, a cir
cus and a tivolis, tho latter a great report for
all nationalities. Cor. Home Journal.
New York Marring Lavs.
A curious result of the marriage laws in
New York state has recently been noted.
It is claimed that it is possible there :or a
man to have several lawful wives at the
same time; that he can be married to a
fresh wife every five years under tjns section
which permits re-marriage (but ,4-bids di
vorce) after desertion for that ftugth ii
time. But the law also provides that every
marriage legal where contracted is valid
here; and that a divorce obtained in another
state is not valid in New York, unless both
parties were under the jurisdiction of the
court granting it. Jones marries, brings hi
wife to New York, applies in Chicago for a
divorce, and obtains it. That divorce, valid
in Illinois and not valid in New York, ena
bles him to marry another woman in Illinois,
and the New York courts recognize that
marriage as valid and compel him to suport
both wives. He may rejieat this ten times a
year and fill his harem. The co'irts will up
hold all the marriages as valid and throw
out all the divorces.
A Laxy Man's Ingenuity.
A Kingston man, who keeps a horf,
takes a ride every morning before he
goes to work. The only dravback is,
the horse must be fed and watenj i before
the ride can be taken. HeTetoK ' the
man has been forced to get up at .Varly
hour, go to the barn some distanc&'away,
to care for the horse. Lately he has ar
ranged a bin and hopper, containing oats,
over the feed box, which can be operated
by a touch of a door knob on the wall a
few inches from the head of his bed.
An arrangement is also made for let
ting on water in. the paiL by which the
horse is watered. When the man wakes
up in the morning, at that time when he
feels that a second nap would be a great
blessing, he pulls the knob, which turns
on the oats and water, and then quietly
lies back on his pillow and goes to sleep.
Some would call this man lazy, but
others would say he was an ingenious in
Tropical Agriculture.
In order to encourage the youth of tbe
island of Jamaica in the study of the
first principles of agriculture as applic
able to their climate and soil, the govern
ment of that island has offered a pre
mium of $500 for the production of the
best text book, elementary in plan, era-
bracing simplicity, brevity and freedom
from technical terms. It is to be a
manna) calculated to create in the minds
of the youth early and intelligent interest
in the soil, and in tbe profitable cultiva
tion of products that will command a
ready homo or foreign market. The
work must be eminently practical, and
entirely free from untried or doubtful
theories. Ameiictin Agriculturist. -
