Home for Stray Cats.
There is in one of the poorer districts
of Islington a small house known as
•Fellowship Cottage," which is k«pt by a
lady who devotes the best part of her life
to succoring stray and abandoned cats.
This year over 2,000 have passed through
her hands; some have been nursed back
to sleekness and content, many have been
placed in comfortable homes, and the
hopeless cases have been consigned to the
kind oblivion of death. Such an institu
tion as this deserves the utmost support
and sympathy; it serves a district which
would otherwise be neglected, for the
larger institutions cannot cover the whole

STOCKS HAVE A SPURT
WHOLE LIST IS CARRIED TO A
HIGHER LEVEL
Large and Obstinate Short Interest Is
Routed and Speculators Who Are
Long Take Profits at the Expense of
the Bearish Contingent.
NEW YORK, Jan. 21.—The influ
ences which have been gathering force
for some time in the stock market
caused an outburst of activity and
strength today which carried the whole
market to a higher level and routed a
large and obstinate short interest. The
rush to cover of the shorts was an im
portant influence In carrying some of
the most active stocks upward and the
speculators who were long of these
stocks were able to take their profits
at the expense of their bearish breth
ren. The movement was without any
Important news developments beyond
those that have been under discussion
for several days. There was a tendency
toward crystallization of the belief that
war between Russia and Japan is likely
to be averted for the present. The for
eign markets continue to manifest hes
itation and Inactivity In the apprehen
sion that a turn for the worse is to
be feared, but the agreements reached
on successive points in the controversy
have given growth to the conviction
here that the points remaining are not
sufficient to justify a resort to war.
The growing volume of the demand
for bonds has made an impression on
the speculative mind as a usual pre
cursor of an improvement in the buy
ing of stocks, and the continued heavy
accumulation of money at this center
adds to the belief that the demand for
bonds is likely to extend to the stock
list. It is plain that the recent low
state of sentiment in the iron and steel
trade no longer exists and definite
prospects of a betterment of conditions
there have made an impression in the
speculative markets, but it has been
a large and influential party in the
speculation which has held firmly to
the ground that such signs of strength
as have appeared in the stock market
were purely manipulative, and that the
entire absence of public demand for
securities would prevent the buyer*
from disposing of their holdings at a
profit.
Uncovered Bears Fearful.
The bull campaign yesterday and
today appeared under such auspices as
to impress the uncovered bears with
the fear that its pxegress might extend
beyond their means to oppose it. The
covering demand- was very heavy from
various outside points. The leadership
in the market operations was rather
clearly traceable to several sources
which have been imposing- Influences
in great market movements of the last
few years and the prestige of this
leadership helped to demoralize the
bears.
There was enormous profit-taking
throughout the day, at the first in
stocks which have led the preliminary
advance before today. These included
Southern Pacific, Rock Island, Reading, ''
the Erics, Amalgamated Copper and
United States Steel preferred. Later,
■when some of these laggards were
brought into the movement, the profit
taking shifted to stocks w_hich had ad
vanced in the early part of the day.
This double process of closing' up spec
ulative commitments serves to reduce
the technical forces in the market for
a further movement in either direction.
The breaking of the drought in tne
Southwest was one of the helpful in
fluences of the day, owing to its mark
ed influence on the wheat market.
Speculative hopes were expressed of a
large diversion of profits of cotton
speculation into stocks, and the initia
tion to stock exchange membership of
.the leader of the cotton speculation
was an appropriate feature of the day.
The market closed active and firm and
near the top prices for the majority o!
stocks.
Bonds were active and strong-. Total
Sales, par value, . $7,075,000. United
States bonds were unchanged on call.

Sharp Break Occurs Early on Account

(For wheat market see first page.l
CHICAGO, Jan. 21.—May corn closed
*<t<s%c lower. Oats were off y s c. Pro
visions closed from a shade to 5c higher.
Clearances of wheat and flour were equal
to 328,800 bu. Primary receipts were
371,300 bu, against 5ti7.300 bu a year ago.
Minneapolis. Duluth and Chicago reported
receipts of 357 cars, against HZ last week
and 374 a year ago.
Corn opened steady on firm cables and
unfavorable weather. May being a shade
higher to a shade lower at sOVic to &o%@
50% c. The market soon weakened, how~
ever, on the break In wheat. On the de
cline a lot of stop-loss orders came out
and a quick slump to 49% c for May fol
lowed. For a tune the market received
little support, but later houses which have
been friendly to the bull side became
fair buyers and there was also covering
by local shorts. As a result much of the
early decline was recovered and a firm
tone prevailed at the close, although May
was %@%c lower at 49Ts@50e. Local re
ceipts were 216 cars, none of contract
grade.
Oats Do th« Best.
Oats fared the best of the grains, and
■while, there was a sharp '■ break - early in
sympathy with the wheat weakness, all
or' the loss was recovered and a new .
high record in May recorded. Commission
houses were the best buyers and were in
fluenced .by the ; continued light ; receipts
and ; the strong cash: situation. May
opened unchanged to %c lower at 41%@
42% c, sold down to 41*4 c," but reacted
later In the day to 42% c. The close was
at 4-U@42%c. Local receipts were 106
cars. .
Provisions weathered the gale and held
steady In the face of the sharp break in
grain prices. Much smaller receipts of
hogs than had been estimated, - with an
advance of 10c in the price at the yards, I
was the steadying influence. There was
some selling by local longs and also for
outside account, but the market held
well and closed steady, with May -pork
2%c higher at $13.27%. May'lard was
up 5c at $7.25, while ribs were a shade
higher at [email protected]%.
Estimated receipts for tomorrow are:
Wheat, 40 cars; corn, 325; oats, 165; hogs,
27,000 head.

Minneapolis—Wheat got a setback sharp
and severe, and prices fell off with such
rapidity, that in some cases stop-loss or
ders were reached. This was especially
true of Chicago July, which option sold
from 84 %c down to 81% cso quickly that
traders on the local floor thought at first
the figures posted were incorrect, as . the
loss in that option was so much heavier
than in the others. Snow over the South
west, putting an end to the winter wheat
drought scare, , did - the business and
brought the ■ weakness, which; was felt
most severely In July.* r Receipts, 255 cars.
; The market was strong near the close,
and the early loss was recovered in good
part. May closed at 90%®90%c; July.
88% 89c, and September 78c. The cash
demand for wheat was good. May price
to %c over.was the figure .for No. 1 north
ern, and 2%c to 3c under - the basis • for
No. 2 northern. -No. 3 wheat sold In the
main between 82c and 83c. Anything free
from smut and otherwise good was sold
readily, but the smutty and bin burnt
wheat was hard to move at satisfactory
prices. --'■:": ' ■ v • - - .
