DUN'S ' REVIEW OF BUSINESS Volume of Trade is 63 7 Per Cent Larger Than it Was Last Year , LABOR DISPUTES CAUSE LESS TROUBLE I'rlrrn cm Iron Keeit on Copper AVcnUrr ' 1 In Slrcmui-r Cotton Mradj ( lnl > 11 Icw I'll Huron. NBW YORK , July 14. Dun's Kcvlcw of Trade tomorrow win say : Because every prospect pleases It la the right time to watch most closely ( or signs of trouble. Hut It la not easy to find them when the \olumo of business Is C3 7 icr cent larger than last jenr and 75 S p r cent larger than In 18D2 , the best of all 5 cars except the last , or when failures continue the smallest ever known , or when the ex ports of staples begin to Improve materially , or when railroad business Is by far th * best ever known , or when New York bankers appear In International operations , ihten- Ing to a Russian Inquiry and undertaking a .Mexican roan. K\en the disputes Incident to the season cause less trouble than usual , the largest of them having been settled by the Tin Plate company The Dank of Knglind finds It difficult to borrow more from this sldo and frankly raises Its rate , while this country begins to ship fresh crops , for which Europe will run Into debt. Iron production In the first week of July was 263,363 tons for the last two weeks , less because a strike July 1 closed seven Bbcnango furnaces , producing 1,200 tons dally , though It Is expected to end today , nnd several other furnaces have begun pro ducing this month. The Increase of 3'JlO tons weekly In June , with a decrease of 80,400 tons In unsold stocks of the great teel companies , Implies a production of about 1,128,690 tons In June. Consumption would be 1,209,030 tons nnd In the half jear G.844,216 tons but for the fact that steel makers have stocked heavily ngalnst orders running through most or tlio jear , drawIng - Ing from outside supplies , so that consump tion may prove only 6,700,000 tons , or oven lots. Prices nre climbing , but only for the trifling surpliui not covered by contracts , BO that quotations represent but nil Insignifi cant part of the actual business. It Is of more Importance that new cyders , though very many , seem no longer cquar to the weekly output , except In a few branches , while furnaces and other works practically ( abandoned for many years are being started again. Copper Is a shade weaker at IS'i cents for lake , the government reporting the out put In 1898 as 626.375.391 pounds. Tin la strong , with London speculation at 28 25 cents , nnd lead Is advancing by the smelt ing company to $4 55. The largest ship ments of boots and shoes In any jear for the season. 103,080 cases In two weeks , greater by 17.4 per cent than last year , 8 C per cent larger than In 1897 and 29.4 per cent larger than In 1S92 , result from very extensive pressure to anticipate orders for August or September , distribution far exceeding ex pectations , but there are reported with such appeals not nearly as large , though numer ous duplicate orders. Hemlock sole leather sells largely , but some kinds slowl > , with a Blight decrease In prices. Though cotton is steady in splto of 'the Texas floods at 6.19 cents and the general demand for cotton goods Is full and sus tains prices , a reduction of half n cent iu Bomo fancy prints Is reported. Larger dis tribution Is expected this morning and ex port demand Increases. In wool a great peculation Is In progress , sales In two wesRs reaching 22,261,100 pounds , against 24,572,800 pounds In 1897 , when the buying was to an ticipate new duties. Western frenzies some times make eastern markets , but aa a. rule consumers make prices In the end. In striking contrast with otllclal nnd other \vheat reports are the recorded receipts at western ports , ' 8OS8,146 bushels In two weeks , against 1,471,739 bushels last year. It Is not strange that prices have declined 1 1-8 cents and exports , flour included , wcro from Atlantic ports In July thus far 4,185- 014 bushels , against 4,083,312 bushels last jear , and from 1'aclflc ports 1,010,485 bush els , against 801,100 bushels last year , bo- aldes 605,585 bushels this year from other ports. Corn exports are also surprising , 6 , 815,214 bushel's in two weeks , ngalnst 2,557,098 bushels last year , but less surpris ing than western receipts , 10,512,541 bushels , against 4,561,071 bushels last jear. Never theless the price advanced live-eighths of a cent. cent.Failures Failures for the week have been 169 In the United States , against 215 last year , and 24 in Canada , against 23 last year. imADSTIlEUT'S 11UVIKW OK TIUYDU. 3Yeir Fcntnrcit In Traile Situation Arc AlmoHt All Uniformly KavoraMc- . NEW YORK , July 14. Bradstrcefs to morrow will gay : Now features In the general trade situ ation this week are of nn almost uniformly favorable character. So rare. Indeed , are the disturbing features as to necessitate considerable search to locate them. Addi tional statistics regarding trade movements nro certainly of an encouraging nature , fore most among these being exceptionally good railroad earnings returns for the first , half of the year and ascertained totals of nn enormous export trade , practically equal to the phenomenal business of the preceding fiscal year. The record of railroad receiver ships for the first half of the year bears a striking resemblance to the list of business mortalities. Inasmuch ns they nro the smallest In number reported since receiver ships first became prominent. Among strong news features might bo named the qulto favorable July crop report of the Agricultural department , which , while confirming earlier advices of a mod erate yield of winter wheat , and therefore of a smaller aggregate crop than was gath ered last year , admitted , how over , to have boon largely underestimated , point to a largo acreage In corn and conditions which , it maintained , would easily result in a crop in excess of 2,000,000,000 bushels. Late un favorable reports from Russia point to a more pronounced diminution of crop jlclds In that country this year. The ofllclal French crop estimates have also been whittled down and the outlook seems to favor the probability that Europe will buy nearly as much wheat in America as it did In the last Qscal year , when , it might bo added , exports exceeded those of tbo boom year of 1897-S. In Industrial Hues the outlook is a promising ono. Tbo settle- roent of the coal miners' strike In Pennsyl vania and ot the tin plate workers' dispute bid fair to result in nearly CO.OOO men resuming work after the summer shutdown. A number ot wage increases nro aUo among the week's developments. The iron blast furnace report for July 1 points to nn unprecedented current weekly production , but avallabfe stocks of pig iron are down to less than one week's supply. From the Boveral centers of Industrial activity come reports of scarcity ot labor , militating against even more pronounced activity , Iron nnd steel , while reflecting the summer quiet ness to om extent in the east , are in demand at the west and somu heavy sales are reported at Chicago , with some advances in itructural material. Bessemer pig Is now slightly llttlo more than doubla what It was one year ago. Reports nre cur rent that flnar arrangements for booking a large quantity of business have been closed.

IlltAU&TItnUT'S PI.NANCIAL IIUVICW. MlilNiiniincr DiiIlncNN Has KM Custom ary KttVi't In JlcHtrlctliiR Market. NBW YORK , July 14. Bradstreet'fl Finan cial Review tomorrow will uay : A moderate view of transactions , attended by a certain degree of strength In quotations , wore the reading features of the speculative situation during the present week. What is termed midsummer dullness has its custo mary effect in restricting the market nnd the comparative firmness of call loans tended to check both manipulation on a largo scale or the growth or public Interest , \VhlIc Amcrlcan stocks have been a feature In London the unsettled speculative Inter est there was due to troubles In South Af rica and the advance of interest rates has not been without a certain effect here The remarkable fall In the price of Brit ish consols , which on Tuesday soM at 106V4 , a drop of C 3-S points from the highest quotation of the } car , could not fall to at tract notice , though it seemed due to local causes and failed to exercise a positively disturbing effect on general speculation. London , however , sold our securities to a certain extent , partly for the reasons de tailed above and partly because of disap pointment , in which our own market shared , at tbo failure of last week's rumors of fresh Vandcrbllt deals to materialize and of the denial that there was anything moro than friendly negotiations on foot between the managements of the New York Central and the Pennsylvania companies. The most effective feature has been the government crop report , published Monday , and which , supplemented by good accounts of weather and other conditions at the west , by a heavy movement of grain on the rail roads nnd by other Indications that rail road trufllcs and earnings will bo well main tained , has created a bullish feeling on the granger nnd southwestern stock. The decla ration by the Louisville & Nashville di rectors of the regular 1 % per cent divi dend for the half > ear , with an extra ono- half of 1 per cent , and the publication of a preliminary statement uhowing that the road earned nearly G per cent on Its stock , also had a good effect , which was not diminished by confident rumors of coming dividend payments - ments by other companies , notably by the Chesapeake & Ohio road. The subsidence of reports of anticipated labor disturbances also had an Influence , though on Thursday Brooklyn Rapid Transit declined on renewed rumors of troubles of that character , A slight effect was pro duced on prices by the news that one of the largest of tbo American life Insurance cor porations had decided to dispose of its holdIngs - Ings of stocks , presumably to comply with Famous for Half a Century as a remedy for Gout , Enlarged Joints , Rheumatism , etc. a pure , natural , mineral spring water.

Among the donations were thirty juicy watermelons nnd the children reveled In these , and , as Mr. Clark expresses it , "filled up to their hearts' content.

STORY OF A TENNESSEE BELLE CliniiRcd Her 311ml four Time * About Two Men nnil Married Until A Ilenuty ntiil n muter. She was not merely a belle and beauty , back before tbo war , this fascinating and capricious Sue Pillow -OSIartln. She appears to have been a new woman , born ahead of time , Into an epoch and environment that Irked her oven more than sno shocked them. When the Mexican war was fought a Pil low was a general. Naturally that added to his social prestige. Renown was not needed , though , to make his eldest daughter easily first among equals In the land of her birth. She was pretty , she was witty , she danced like a Wyllls , and was coquette to her finger tips. She had lovers and love affairs by the time she was 15. Not very serious ones , yet serious enough to show her quality of imperious caprice. It was a caprice that set her world by the cars , and Mrs. Qrundy at defiance. Whatever she willed to do , that she did , regardless of They Say and all his works. By and by joung McNalry of Kentucky came courting her. At first she tossed her head. In a week they were engaged , and the wedding day set. Friends and fortune smiled approval.It was most flt In every way. McNalry was an only child , and his father a rich man , withal an eminent judge. Ills son's choice so pleased him that he resolved to make the Infare , the bride's homo-coming , the most notabi'o social event In south Kentucky history. Ho sent all the way to New York for a family carriage , the first closed carriage ever brought to that region. Much of the supper was likewise ordered from New York , also liveries for the black coachman , the footmen and > oung Mc- Nalry's own man. Four fine black horses , perfectly matched nnd bitted , drew the carriage. Everj thing was spick nnd span when the bridegroom set out to claim his bride. Klkton , his home town , lies In a border county , some sixty miles from Nashville. The Pillow home stead was Just outside Columbia , which lies about fifty miles duo south of the state capltat. So It was a two-dajs' drive , but the horses minded It no more than their master. Thoroughbreds In perfect condition , they had no need of "the rest day , the feast day and the pressed day , " allotted by the hospitable proverb. A Xcvr bnlnc. It was very well they had not , since they went home tie very next day. Miss Pillow bad changed her mind , not about marrying , but as to who should be the man. A certain Hugh Martin , newer and richer than Mc- Nairy , had como upon the scene she was fond of novelties and dearly loved to give her world a sensation. She wrote McNalry a curt dismissal and married Martin with all the pomp and circumstance prepared for the man ho had supplanted. McNalry faced the changed conditions with a sort of grim humor. He bought all the crepe In Columbia , put horses and sen ants in deep mourning and drove home. Tuero he insisted that the infaro should go on just .the same , although the brldo was consplcu- "ously " absent. Ho said of her only that she had exercised her undoubted privilege of changing her mind. If others said more he at onc& changed the conversation. Ho might hove married a hundred times over , but though gallant toward all women , he said he would die a bachelor , os Sue Pillow-Martin meantime was leading her "new husband the merriest sort of dance. When he came to understand that his money had tempted her , he gave It to her to spend like water. She flung It away with both bands. Every week almost she drove to Nashville and went about its finest shops with her black maid carrying roleaux of gold to pay for her purchases. The gold was but one of her innumerable whims. She would not touch sliver or paper. Doubtless had diamonds been minted she would have de manded diamonds. IJncIc to the Old Lore. Hugh Martin had married her for better or for worse. Ho bore and forbore until she came actually to despise him. She set her nilnd on divorce , then and there regarded as almost Indelible disgrace. But divorced she would be , and divorced she was , In spite of her father , her family , all her friends. Her freedom proved , after a sort , a crown of thorns. If men still crowded about her , there was that In the eyes and > oiccs of the women that poisoned life came to Sue Pil low-Martin. By way of changing all that she whistled back her old lover , McNalry , and married ilm out of hand. That would have made a seven-years' sen sation , only the civil war came on , and not so long after McNalry fell from a high win dow and broke his neck. The shock almost killed his wife. She came as near loving him as her supreme selfishness allowed. Trouble did not como singly her father died about tbo same time. Both left estates much Involved. When , a little later , the fall of the Confederacy annihilated slave property , the widow found herself with straitened prospects. Poverty was not Imminentbut theoldlavish , luxurious life was forever gone. The brother reigning In her father's stead was brotherly Vlnd , but she was no more uprcm < . Be sides , her world was wondering what "he cculd or would do next. What she did do was to write , In her brother's name , to her divorced husband , Hugh Martin , asking for Information In regard to some part of her father's estate > iimhor One CnttKht Vunln , Martin recognized the handwriting. He had gone back to his old home cast Ten nessee , nnd prospered there throughout Me- Nalry's lifetime. War losses even left him comparatively rich. When news cnma that his ex-wife was again free he took to his bed , declaring he would never leave It alive. To the friends who railed nt her , and begged him not to think of her , he said humbly that ho still loved the very earth she trod. She might not deserve It , but he would rather die than live to know that she had married still another man , as she was sure to do. So her letter came to him ns manna In the desert. He answered 11 at once she threw aside tllsgulfo and wrote again. The second letter set him on his feet , although but . a ghost of his old self. I ! ' A third came quickly. He packed his grip , put money In both pockets and went I away. In a month or less he had re married there was again legally a Sue I'll- low-Martin. He found her just the same , full of capricious luring , of swift anger and sudden remorseful tenderness But now she was content to sun herself In the cjes of an adoring husband. Then there was the child her llttlo daughter by McNalry. Martin loved It as tenderly as though It were bis own. That helped him with the mother , nnd consoled him for many of the wounds her Indifference gave. On the whole his last marriage brought him jears of stormy and moonlit happiness. Not so very many jenre. His wife died , and his heart was burled with her. He outlived her only a llttlo while. All his fortune went to her daughter , who grew up a gracious and beautiful young woman , wholly lacking her mother's lawless charm. NEW RIVAL FOR THE KLONDIKE Great Iliinh for > ow Rolil Jimt ll cov ernl C\cur Cape INoinc. SEATTLE , Wash. . July 14 The steamer Alliance arrived this morning from St. Michaels , Alaska. It Is the first vessel to arrive from the mouth of the Yukon this season and brings advices from the newly discovered gold field of Cape Nome. When the Alliance left St. Michaels the season was not far enough advanced to de termine the future of the diggings. Pros pectors were confident that the country would prove very rich. Colors were found almost everywhere throughout the zone , which Is thirty-five mllea square , and nearly all available ground has been staked. In some instances there are several claimants to one property. As soon as warm weather gets In and material for sluicing Is at baud the true -value of the ground will bo known. Pans from $2 to $4 are common. Only one cleanup has been made thus far. It was that of Gabo Price and Louts Lane , on claim No. 8 , above Discovery on Anvil creek. Four men shoveling eight davs took out $96,000. Not a shovelful was taken from the bed of the creek. The gold is different from that of the Yukon in that It is quite black , duo to iron. It runs about $18 to the ounce. On a claim adjoining Price nnd Lane Dr. Klttclson took $4 to the pan. There was a great rush from St. Michaels Into the dis trict. Town lots are selling as high aa $1,000. The Alliance had several passengers and a small amount of golddust from Daw son. The next steamer to arrive will probably be the Roanoke , which was to have sailed from St. Michaels June 9. The Alliance brings news of the death of several miners near Capo Nome. Following are the names of six : Joe Fountain , Jtaynard , Groteau , < Carr , Dr. Brigham - ham , Jack Burke. All of the above named except Burke were from Holyoke , Mass. , and were members of the Rolch party. Dr. Brlgbam died from natural causes. Carr and Burke froze to death. Out of n party of 100 miners at Cape Nome , eighteen severe cases of scurvy have developed during the winter. The strlckefl men were mostly loaded on sledges and hauled over the ice to St. Michaels for med ical treatment. Jacob Made of Canton , O. , who was a pas senger on the Alliance , thinks that the predictions of the richness of the Cape Nome diggings are not to be realized. Ho said : "On several of the claims I saw- gold taken out , but in very small quantities. In no instance that I know of bad bedrock been reached. It never will bo reached un til they can get wood In there. The only wood in the district Is the driftwood , which is almost as precious as gold. For six days I investigated the camp and then came away thoroughly convinced that the diggings wcro by no means as rich ns reported. Hundreds at the time I was there were flocking ! n from Dawson. Many w 111 come out this sum mer thoroughly disgusted. " Among the passengers on the Alliance was a party of ten from Lowell , Mass. , who went into Koyakuk district last > ear. L. R. Farrlngton , a member of the party , said : "My candid advice is for people to stay away from Koyakuk. The outlook Is not encouraging. We took a party of sixteen and left six of them there to see what this summer's work would pan out. We do not como back sore and disgusted with the country , but do not believe there is not a sufficiency of gold there to warrant a rush Into the country. " Philippine Girls Don't Interest Drcx L.

It means that when you are compelled to have glasses you will have to wear them all the time In stead of just for reading and sowing. It means that you will liave to change glasses every seven or eight months as long as you live Instead of every two or three years. That one or the other of your eyes may entirely lose Its usefulness from neglect That you are In danger every day of causing a cata ract You can afford to put off any thing else better.
