Clay, of Georgia, last week at the close of a senate session which had developed only routine. "Do you remember?" he said to Senator Rayuer, of Maryland. "No, of course you don't; you were not here," he add ed, but In the old days we used , to have some snap and go to things In the senate. There was Senator Hoar, of Massachusetts; Senator Morgan and a half .dozen others who enlivened de bate as Is rarely done now." Then, as Senator Root and two or three other new senators joined the group, he told the story. . "Senator Hoar was trying to get n bill through which had something to do with codfish. I do not recall just what it was, but it was a genuine Massachusetts codfish bill anyhow. Senator Morgan opposed it and it was voted down. Senator Hoar was testy and showed it. Rising, he addressed the presiding officer and gave expres sion to the belief that no senator from an Inland state, and a southern state, too, had; a commission to decry a meas ure so largely of Interest to New Eng land. Well, you know our southern people are not partial to codfish. They seldom see it and few eat it. Senator Morgan rose and turning to Senator Hoar said, In his Blow, deliberate way: " 'Of course, Mr. President, I re serve the right to take part In any legislation that affects any part of the 1'iilted States.

"You should be very careful for at least a month." he said. "Is It as bad as all that?" asked the patient, anxiously. "If the result is to be as satisfactory as 1 would like to have It, you cannot follow the rules that I lay down too carefully." The doctor looked Berions, "I will do exactly as you say," Bald the now thoroughly alarmed patient. "A am I eating too heartily?" "Much too heartily. You should eat simpler, food and not so much of It. If you follow my advice you'll cut your butcher's and grocer's bills Just about In half." "I'll do it,, doctor." "You ought to take more exercise, too," continued the physician. "How do you go to your oinoe now?" "By car." "Stop at once. You must walk to and from your office every day, rain or shine. Do you ever go to the the ater?" "Quite often." "You mustn't do It while you're un der my care. How about smoking?" " "I smoke, of course, but only In moderation." "Don't smoke at all," instructed the physician. "Throw away all your ci gars and don't buy another for 80 days at least, or I'll give up the case." . "I'll do it, doctor, but but " "Do you drink?" "Occasionally, but I " "Stop It entirely." "A little claret on the table now and then ought not to" , "Not a drop at any time." , "All right, doctor. What next?" "Nothing.

Gawd d " Stocks, Bonds, Cereals SPOTTY ID DULL Was Yesterday's Stock Market f Some Resistance Shown the Reaction, However. , New York, March 4. The stock market today gave evidence of ben evolent credit coming from import ant banking interests which are en tering on a course of heavy bond floatations. The numTJer of these Is sues during the week have been large, but the amounts involved are small by comparison with those named as in prospect by a liumoer of leading railroad systems. The enlistment of new capital on a large scale lias been recognized as requiiste for carrying on of great improvement and extension which has been announced liy various rail roads. The most distinct flaw in all the great stock market, advance of the last year was the failure of the bond market to share In the benefits. The demand for bouus was apathetic throughout and new Issues were dis tributed slowly and at small advan tages. Much interest attaches to the outcom eof the current offerings, bond prices are now lower and in terest at the lowest rate higher than n any preceding epoch of large financing. The stock market today was spot ty and intensely dull most of the time. The reactionary tendency which set In yesterday was resisted, but the market as a whole did not show revived strength.

With a some what severe winter drawing to a close and with a subsidence of ex citement in financial markets, the Industrial and trade situation shows Improvement, and the outlook for the spring season Is promising. It Is easy to pick flaws In the situation, certain aspects of which are unfavor able. Among these may be men tioned the Increasing excess of ex ports over imports, the balance of trade in favor of this country during the current fiscal year being the smallest since 1890; and but for for eign purchases of American secur ities during the recent decline, there would probably be heavy exports of gold. Then the bond mnrkej: is un favorable for large floatations, and this retards the extensive works of construction. Heavy liabilities of defaulting con cerns during February due, however, chiefly to four large failures, is not a pleasant Incident. A slight ten dency to reduction In building opera tions is noted. There Is also consid erable disposition to wait for con gressional legislation and court de cisions before entering upon large business commitments. But, in spite of all these things, the fact remains that a big volume of business, at least closely approximating normal, Is carried on. ; PROVISIONS.
