Dated at Cairo, 111 ..December 7th,
IW.S.
New York, Dec. 23 The speculative
omniuuity remained convinced today
that Important re-alignments are li.
progress, or in contemplation, in rail
road relations. The first effect of
the announced purchases of control of
the Colorado and Southern by the
liirliiigton had a mixture of misgiv
ing and a possible prelude to renew-
1 outbreak of antagonism which fig
tired in the Northern securities settlement.
That misgiving has passed away,
apparently, and the Incident has com.'
to be accepted as unmixed encourage
ment to speculative enthusiasm. Its
Influence was very manifest today,
as yesterday, In the continued circu
lation of rumors and conjectures In
great variety as to possible further
mergers and absorptions.
The market was spotty at times,
owing partly to the reactionary tend
ency of some minor stocks which fig
ured miwit prominently in the rumors
yesterday. It is noticeable thatar
tive speculation is in progress in
bonds of a class which might be lift
ed from a condition of doubtful se
curity under the separate control of
smaller financial organizations into a
lilgner grade ol security witli compan
ies in control of powerful corpora-
lion of first class credit. It is the
enormous transactions in bonds of
that class which have swelled the vol
ume of the bond market for twrf days
past, to almost record proportions
The speculative element in these deal
ings was plainly manifest iu the vio
leu't reactions which occurred today
In the prices of some of those which
rose most, yesterday's price move
ment being unite as wide In some of
these cases as Iu shares. At the sain.
time the investment demand for firs!
class bonds continued excellent, and
the ready absorption of new bond is
sues as fast as Hiey are ottered con
stitutes one o ftlie strong underlying
conditions of the present finacial si!
nation. As long as this condition
Is :.;:::iif'.'st and the call money murk'.t
kept free from violent fluctuations.
hi re is little influence felt from the
mo: i mmediate changes in the mon
. y f.ip; ly. Large incursions ar"
i : i a 1 in.'.; ti'.l on cash holdings of
banks. 1
Today's sub-treasury operations ills
closed he wihdrawal of $3,38 1.0'jn
ftoni the batiks, undoubtedly due to
further payment of subscriptions to
Panama bonds. This brings the lots
of the banks on this account for the
present banking week to $i,L,53,0ii).
There is a falling off iu the demand
for time loans and unwillingness to
pay current asking rates which argues
the expectation that easier terms will
be procurable after the turn of the
year. The market showed no aspect
at any time of what Is called holidav

Fame Is fleet Ing enough In the case
of men, hut when it comes lo women
the goddess is twice as fickle. Almost
any public school pupil more than ten
years old cun repeat the names of the
presidents of the 1'iilted States, but
how many know the presidents' wives?
Doubtless 90 per cent, of the adult
population Is unable to name off
hand more than a half dozen women
whoso husbands occupied the While
1 louse.
Everybody knows Martha Washing
ton was Mrs. Custis when she was
married to the Father of Ills Country,
but how many remember her maiden
name was Dandiidge? There are
dozens of families throughout the coun
try which, If heraldry obtain in Amer
ica, would he entitled to emhhuoii the
nation's shield on their coat ofarms
by reason of havlug been connected
with presidents through their ances
tresses. They represent the names of
Daudrlds. Custis. Smith, Wayles,
Skelton, Payne. Todd, Kortwright,
Johnson, Donelsoti, Robards., Hoes,
Symtnes, Christian, Gardiner, Chil
dress, Powers, Carmlchael, Mcintosh.
Appleton, McCardie, Dent, Webb, Ru
dolph, Herndon, Folsom, Scott, Lord,
Dlmmick, Saxon, Lee and Carow.
And those are only nuines of presi
dents wives. The mothers of the
presidents, beginning with Washing
ton's, originally bore the surnames
Hull, Hoylsion. Randolph.. Conway,
Jones, Smith, Hutchinson, Hoes, lias
selt, Armlstead, Knox, Stroller, Mil
lard, Hendricks. Speer, Hanks, McDon-
ough, Simpson, Hirchard, Ballon,
Stone, Neal, Irwin, Allison and Bul
lock.
Only one woman had the honor of
being both the wife and the mother
of presidents. She was Abigail Smith,
who was married to John Adams, the
second president, and whose son,
John Qulncy Adams, became the sixth
presldeut. Another woman, Eliza
beth Hassett, was wife and grand
mother of presidents. Her husband
was William Henry Harrison, ninth
occupant of the White House, her
grandson, lieitjamin Harrison, the
twenty-third In line.
That all the presidents have been
dignified men from their early year
Is shown by the Christian names
their helpmeets. Among the wives
the presidents there' never has b(e
Flossie, a BiibHte, a Tessle, a Kitty
nor even a uweiidoln, Hortense
Mabel. The only woman whose given
name approached frivolity was Dolly
Madison, and she no doubt was chris
tened, Dorothy or Dorothea, unless
mistake was made at the baptismal
font. There were two Marthas am
as many Abigails. ( 'amines. Marys
Elizas and Julias.
The other presidents' wives have
een, respectively, Dolly, Louisa
Rachel, Hannah, Anna, Letltla
Sarah, Margaret, Jane, Lucy, Lucre! la
Ellen, Frauceg, Ida, Alice and Edith
Equally staid were the names of the
presidents' mothers. Ther hafe been
two each of Jane, Eliza, Anna and
Nancy ; three Marys and four Elizabeths
Die other mothers of the presidents
dlid the names Susanna, Nelly, A hi
gall, Maria. Sarah, Phoebe, Harriet
Sophia. Malvlna Hnd Martha. The
wife of the first president and the
mother of the latest were named
Martha. It Is hard to conceive of any
of those women being addressed by
undignified diminutives.

your h-ad straight In front. Don t
twist it to the left or tight. Never
sneeze over your Stioilliler. You me
liable to bin st a blood vessel.
