The ivory doll of the Roman child was too costly for the ages that fol lowed the fall of the empire. For many centuries dolls must have been chiefly of home manufacture. The first shop mode dolls after the middle nges were the jointed wooden dolls of the Netherlands. These were known "In England and In this country, too, In colonial times as "Flanders babies." Stocks, Bonds, Cereals j Prevails In the Stock Market Specu , lators Are Watching the Trend of Events. New York, Sept. ' 19. The stock market today showed nothing but an Insistent determination of the specu lation to mark time and to await events. On the opening decline prices disclosed some buying .demand at the lower level, which was attributed to supporting orders by those interested In properties, and to the uncovered short interest. Later the supposition was elveu color by the borrowing demand in the loan department at the stock ex change, where money is loaned below I the market rate for the sake of se curing desired stock for delivery on contracts for sale. Sdch borrowing demand is a neces sary accompaniment of short selling, but ft is impossible to stimulate a short Interest by sellers of long stock borrowing for delivery and retaining their own shares. The borrowing demand was most' noticeable in few, stocks which have constituted the bulk of deals for a. long time past. The relief from sell-1 lng was sufficient to effect the tone if the whole market. Net changes at the end of the day proved inconse quential. Immediate events .had lit tle effect on the market. The rise in the price of copper at ' Ix)ndon was an Incident of the day. The steel trade advices were not al tered in tone. NEW YORK MONEY. Money on call easy lVzQZ Pr cent, closing bid 1.

Chicago, Sept. 19.9 WHEAT Pro tessional speculators worked mainly only on the buying side today, am prices were materially bullish and left the market unchanged to below Saturday's final figures. The absence of export busines formed the dominat ing Influence In the latest dealings. Some of the incentives for higher prices during the day wer the le: crease in the primary receipts, small ness of the visible supply, reduced es timate of tbe crop in France and the trig falling off In world's shipments The impression prevailed with many that important buying was being done under cover .by one of the leading ele vator concerns; Simultaneously cash houses reported Improved inquiry.
