Certain specialties were moderately strong, notably United States Rubber, which made immediate response to Britain's removal of its embargo on crude rubber by advanc ing smartly. A iewe. o?."'cr stocks, chiefly In the railway division, scored . recoveries trom recebt declines. Genial new? of the day included the receipt of a small amount of gold from Canada. There waa' also a small I engagement of gold for Sooth Amer ica, which was believed to represent a triangular transaction for nc.-ount ? of London Interests and without bear ing oe the recent financing hero for Argentina. Latest trade reports confirmed those or the early part of the week, respecting general improvement, par ticularly hi distributing channels.

The advance was partly In sympathy with the rise in other markets yester day and partly in response to the heavy export movement and the prom ise of large clearances In .the near fu ture. Realising held the advance In check, although the market preserved a firm undertone. The close was at a net gain c" 14 to 19.points. Exports for the week were much larger than expected, Hester putting them at 348,763 bales, making lt the record week for the season. The bull ish significance of this figures was increased by the fact that over twice as much cotton bi on shipboard in both New Orleans and Galveston than a year ago and Ly the total afloat for Europe of 812,000 bales against 700, 000 a year ago.

King Peter of Servia, wno, was driven from his capital by the ad vance ot tho Austrian army, la again in Belgrade, where the government has resumed its functions. Now the Servians are confident tho Austrians win never again cross the Danube with sufficient force to compel them to evacuate their capital as they did earlier in the war. The Austrians have almost been driven from Ser. vlan soli, and it is likely that King Peter will push the conflict into Bos nia in an attempt to take the province which Austria grabbed five years ago. ^ RISE IN WHEAT CAUSES Sf "IDE His Fiira Badly Caught tn hort Side of Market and Fa?s, ' Snoots Himself.
