Pock. z Stocks Bonds Cereals z 1 TENDENCY OF INTEREST RATES ALL OVER THE WORLD IS DOWN WARD NEARLY ALL LINES OF BUSINESS ARE QUIET STEEL AND IRON PRICES ARE BEING ; REDUCED TO LOWER LEVELS WHEN TARIFF QUESTION IS SETTLED BUSINESS WILL NO DOUBT TAKE A FRE6H AND VIGOROUS START IN CONSEQUENCE OF THE ACCUMULATION OF DEFERRED OR DERS, SAYS BANKER CLEWS, Special. New York, Feb. 20. Moneyi is easy everywhere. Not only in New York but in Paris, Frankfort and Berlin the tendency of interest rates is still downward. This, of course, is main ly due to tho depression prevailing in comm-erce and industry In all parts of the world. As a result capital is accumulating and diligently see every fo.rm of safe and profitable em ployment. The effect of this situa tion upon the security markets Is marked, in tho first place, it causes a good demand for high grade invest ments from conservative Mvtst.ors and institutions, who have more re gard for preservation of principal than either dividends or speculative profits. At the same time another class of buyers, viz., the general pulv lie, continues to abstain from the market, partly because of the dull ness of business and diminution of profits lessens their purchasing abil ity, nnd partly because they recog nize that the prices of average stocks are much too high in view of existing conditions. The insiders and big market leaders have successfully re sisted any important decline thus far owing to the abundance of cheap money. There are reasons for believ ing, however, that those whose, pol icy It was to support the market and resist natural tendencirta have ac cumulated all, if not more than, the stocks they desire, and that in tno absence of buyers their position is anythng but a sutsfaetory one, nnt- wtiistanding their unquestioned finan cial strength. Resist Natural Tendencies. For some months past all the re sources and skill of the great leaders-have' b.-MU concentrated upon the purpose of resisting natural tenden cies. .Considering the great slirinK- age 111 railroad iraiue, huh me m ouestionod dullness In business, prices ought to have undergone a .nimideralile reaction. Such has been the course in nil previous panics and it is difficult to appreciate why the results should be n iy different now. 1 .ici'J is no uuuui me ivminj following the rebound alter the. panic was too violent, naving ueeu uuuui, Unuilated by the inflationary effect t f cheap money and the powerjm co rporation of great financiers. Steel Prices Being Cut. It is tills lack of confidence among buyers that has much to do with the present inertia of business. Nearly all lines of business today are ex ceedingly quiet, th? only signs of healthy activity being where, for in stance, in cotton -goods, a thorough readjustment has already taken pln.ee Iron and steel prices arc now being reduced to still lower levels. But AN ANCIENT RACE DYING OUT. Veddahs, of Ceylcn Regarded as Rep resenting the Stone Age, The oldest Inhabitants of Ceylon are passing away. These are tho famous Veddahs. Fifty years ego it was estimated that 8,000 of them were still living In the forests, but Dr. Max Moszkowskl, who "has recently visited them, says there are only 60 or 60 of them still nlive and that a few more years will see the end of their race. Tho Veddahs have interested an thropologists because they have been regarded as the best living types of the man of the stone age. The attitude of the Cingalese toward them Is remarkable. They hold the poor creatures in great honor and rank them as belonging to the highest casto in the island. Th reason is that they are reputed to have descended from the ancient demons or spirits that were, the original possessors of the island. These nomad, hunting people, never leaving their forest3, living under trees and In caves, without knowl edge of pottery or any other art ex cept that of making bows and arrows, are. perishing because of their way of living and of their inability to stand up when stronger folk are pressing closer around them. They are exact ly what they wero centuries ago when people of India came and conquered their green Island. INURED TO POVERTY AND TOIL. Natives of . Shantung Province Live Lives of Wretchedness. Of Shantung province. China, a cor respondent writes: "A little more than a generation ago one of the greatest famines in the memory of man spread devastation in the great over-populated sections of the west of this province and now famine faces the stoical toilers of tho land once again. The Shantungesd Illustrate well the law of the survival of the fittest, for such dire poverty only per mits the strong ones to live, with the result that A flnj sturdy men of great endurance all over this province. Wr ing on the land, which barely produces a sufficiency for Shantung's teeming millions, the people have become hardy, for. they are hardened to all kinds of privations. Their brains are cte.jened by ceaseless toll and tbli needless to say, though this has at tracted many orders, buyers are still unsettled because action has been deferred, and the market has not yet been sufficiently tested by competition between buyers a,) sell 01s. Mui cover, the. dullness in trade is being further aggravated by .tariff sgltntlon. While tariff talk does" not lessen tho amount of food consume 1. clothes worn or shelter required, still the uncertainty has a restraining ef fect upon new ventures ami strength ens the determination of buyers ti preserve a hand.-to-mnuth policy. No doubt when the tariff question is set tled business will Instantly take a vigorous Mart in consequence of th- accumulation of deferred onion; so that the total volume ef business over an extended' period will have suffered little or nothing During tho interval, however, much hesita tion will prevail and must be endured until the tariff revision is s' tt!ed. Demand Increasing. On the one hand, we have uni versal ease in money ami prospects of Us continuance until the autumn in spite of government withdrawal of deposits, gold exports and possible Increased demands incidental to the first of April. The good inquiry for bonds and high class slocks is cer tainly encouraging. I.ondor bus been a larger investor of American securities than for some time past and the general strength f the f r eign markets will, of cour-e, exert a beneficial influence here. On the other hand, the prospects of con tinued dullness in trade in the United States, the outlook for irritat ing tariff discussion pud the fact that neither securities nor commodities have yet undergone an adequate de cline all tend to unsettle confidence In tho future of the stock market. The new administration will shortly by sworn in, nnd a reasuiring and eneouraglng message is confidently expeced from President-elect Taft. The effect of this however, can only he temporary, unless there should be a material change in ether vital con ditions. The natural tendency of prices Is to seek a more normal level, nnd the situation would be tin queslionably bfmeiittrd by a gralua! re adjustment. It U simply a 'ques toin el, how long., artificial rc sislauce, powerfully aided by - cheap money, can hold in cheek natural forces. The market is quite likely to witness sharp rallies on any favorable de velopments of importance, but the prevailing tendency must be towards a lower level until the tariff Is set tled nnd business begins to show signs of geuine improvement. HENRY CLEWS. may account ror'ine repuieu imvmu ne3 of this province in progress along commercial end Industrial lines. A less long-suffering people would have a revolution every year. It is an axiom with westerners that discon tent Is an absolute condition of prog ress, and we who live among the Chinese know there can hardly be a race in the world so contented as they are, considering their lot. This is one of the factors which makes the regen eration of China such an enormous problem." . The Sickroom Bugbear. The great bugbear of the sickroom Is monotony. This is the problem that every pursa must meet and study ways and means to prevent. She may do this in several ways.. She may alter the appeamnre of the .room oc casionally by pushing the bed or sofa to a different part of the room in or der to give the j.atitnt a fresh out look; the cut flowers may be roplacod by a growing plant; old magazines and books may be removed and new ones take their place; the pictures may be changed, especially those that hang at the foot of the bed, or perhaps, a blank wall may be found to be. restful to the tired eyes. Circle Magaiine. The Avesta. In Its, present form the Avesta Is only a fragment of the original Zoro astrian scriptures. It is generally un derstood that those ancljnt scriptures consisted of 20 odd books of a million verses. The destruction of the two original copies, the one at Persepolis. the other at Samarkand, is attributed to Alexander the Great. The Avesta, being only Imperfect remnants of these originals, is in. compass equal to about one-tenth of our Bible. The Secret. "What Is the secret of leading a successful double life?" "Keeping the two Hve3 parallel. Once they converse, the devil Is to cay." Been There Before. A new cons'.":!i! was on duty at one tit the Loudon police courts, and was ccradiirtln3 a prisoner ta the cells. "Mind the step," he said, as they came to a dark earner. "A!! rieht" muttered the pj-lrionw; "I knew that step before you were born." HAIR NATURALLY ABUNDANT. Wfeta It I. Frc. of Dandruff, It Grow. I.uxarlaotly.

If a house is vacant, you will notice that the basement windows are broken half the time. It Is all done by boys, who apparently take great, delight In the sound of a good, hard ia:h." PUBLIC NOTICE.
