New York Stocks. Government bonds dull and State bonds dull and firm. In the tivo hours. of business at the stock exchange today 693,000 shares changed hands, and of this amount over 514,000 were Reading alone, leaving list. The figures suficiently indicate only 179,000 for the remainder of the where the interest lie and the general market presented few features worthy of note.

The general tendency was still to on break away from the influence: of the serious declines in Reading, New England and a few of the industrials which have occurred during the week and at one time a decidedly strong tone was manifested by some of the industrials and tent for foreign ac account. The street most railroad shares, especially the grangers, a which were brought to some exis inclined to take more hopeful view of the. situation and believe the declines are about over, and brokers are disposed to advise their customers to buy again, the influence of the breaks has been seen in its full extent. The liquidation in Reading was resumed in full force and the volume of business for the first hour. was entirely unprecedented, while the drop from 40 1-2 to 36 1-2 was accomplished in about ten minutes.

New England at the same time retired from 43 3-4 to 42, but at this point a strong local demand was developed for both stocks and New England rallied to 44 7-8 and Reading to 38 1-1. But in the late dealings the selling was resumed and Reading retired to 36 3-8, while New England dropped 4 7-8 per cent. to 40. The last however, rallied 1 1-8 per cent. towards the close, its final loss being 2 3-8 per but Reading at 36 5-8 was down 4 1-4.

A story taht the other coal roads were shading Much prices induced some bear selling and Lackawanna was depressed 1 1-2 per cent. to 149 34 and Jersey Central to 124. These losses were afterwards made up. The -action of the Pennsylvauia in withdrawing from connection with the New England was a factor in making lower prices for that stock, as indicating more powerful opposition to the combination. Among.

the industrials some curly weakness in cordage, which was depressed 1 per cent. to 63 3-4, was followed a recovery to 68, but sugar was strong from the outset, rising nearly 2 per cent. to 125 3-8. The late drive, howerer, wiped out these gains and both closed with a small loss. Burlington at Que time showed a gain of 1 1-8 per cent.

and general electric one of 1 5-8, but both closed practically unchanged. Manbattan rose in the early dealing from 159 3-4 to 162 1-2, but yielded a portion cf the advance, closing only 1 per. Celt. 161 1-4. The remainder of the list was inclined to advance, but remained within narrow limits and their final changes were insignificant.

The railroad bonds list was generally steady and quiet; Chesapeake Ohio 4 and Lake Shore firsts each moved up. 1 per cent. The Readings were lower and followed the stock down, but the 19 and the firsts rallied considerably, while the seconds and thirds were unable to hold their improvement.

Feb. 18. It was found at Chicago today that most of the puts on wheat sold yesterdaly had a profit in them and were put. Pardridge received perhaps, 1,000,000 bushels in that way at from 76 1-2 to 76 3-4c. There was some fresh export business reported from the seaboard, being a change from the recent comparative nothingness of that trade.

Wheat, corn, oats and provisions were all considerably lower at the close than on the day before. The respective declines are in wheat and corn. each 5-8c, oats 3-8c, pork 27 1-2c. lard from 21-2 to 5c and ribs 7 1-2c. Wheat at the opening was about 1-2c lower than yesterday's closing.

held firm and then declined 3-8c for Mar and 1-2c for July, ruled steady. and the closing was 5-8c lower for May and 1c lower for July. There was free unloading of long property, including a number of important lines from supposed clique sources. The weakness was a continuance of the feeling developed by the snowstorm. while cables were weak and lower, and the prospects were that the visible supply might show an increase of 250.000 to 400.000 bushels.

The stock situation in -Wall street and the general trust and were an important bear factor. financial outlook also created some disCorn was heavy through lack: of support. It seemed to be a dav of general louidation. Operators were talking about the big visible supply, -which far exceeds that of last year at this time. and pointed to the indifferent cash demand.

the fairly liberal movement from first hands, and the small export were fair buyers at the decline and cansed. a slight reaction. Oats were also slow and weak and followed corn. Hog products were very' sparingly doult in, and for lack of assistance from the ustal porters sagged almost steadily and closed near bottom figures. Receipts--Flour, 17.000 bbls; wheat, 127,000 bu; corn, 171.000 bu; oats.

yesterday said: The liquidation of Reading continued from the to the close. It has been a terrible a shock to all the pools and cliques that have been so carefully manipclating stocks during the winter. They are more or less disfigured but ere still in the ring, but the general market holds in a way that surprises the most experienced traders of the street. It does not scem possible that severe losses of the past ten days can he absorbel and digested without affecting the general market, and it looks as if this activity would he followed by a period of dullness and gradual liquidation in the general market. The hanky are steadily losing cash and certain that money will command bigher here this spring.

The Remarkable Animal That Saved Lives and Received a Pension. Manuel Garcia Morales of Tia Juana. Lower California, (pronounced "Fee Waupa," Mexiou for. "Aunt has A burro that has been pensioned. by the Mexican government.

1 All Californiars, and no doubt many people in the "states," will recall the heay floods" of the rainy season of 1890- 91 in southern Culifornia, by which a number of lives were lost In the 'lia Juana, valley and much property darnaged and destroyed. The legislature of California, then in session, appropriated $5,000 for the relief of the sufferers on the American side of the line, and many private subscriptions were raised for the same praiseworthy purpose. The thriving border town of Tia Juana, which contains the Mexican custom house, is situated on the boundary line and has long been the Mecca of tourists to southeru California who wish to experience the sensation of standing on foreign soil, having their pocket handkerchiefs decorated with the official custom house stamp and purchasing Mexican cigars and other curios. When the- floods came the Tia Juana river, ordinarily a small stream, became a raging torrent, and, breaking its banks without warning during the night, cut a new channel for itself directly through the center of the village and swept away, with but one or two exceptions, every building in its path. The custom house, being located on higher ground ou but the Mexican side, escaped destruction, being of adobe, one corner was washed away by the rushing waters.

To this point of vantage fled the panic stricken survivors, very few saving more than the clothes on their backs. This was the state of affairs 'on the next morning, when the National City Otay railway passenger train appeared on the opposite bank. and approached as near the site. of the washed out bridge as was consistent with safety. It was apparent at once to all on the train that nothing could be done to aid the unfortunate people without boats, and there was none nearer than -San Diego bay, ten miles away.

The survivors tried by means of shouts and waving signals to make themselves understood, bat to no purpose, as the roaring waste of waters was fully half a mile wide. At this juncture the engineer of the train, who, in his younger days, had been a telegraph operator, acting under an impulse that he cannot explain, reached for the whistle lever and slowly spelled out in Morse characters, "What do you need?" knowing full well that there was no way by which the message could be answered, even if by the slightest possibility any one among the survivors understood it. It happened, however, that Jimmy Needham, an operator on the San owned Diego New York short line, who a small fruit ranch In the Tia Juana bottoms, had gone down the previous evening to spend the night with his brother, who took care of the place for him. When Needham, who stood shivering among the cold and hungry people, heard the familiar dots and dashes produced by the whistle. he was all attention at once, and having spelled out the message he instantly: recalled the "Wizzard" Edison's exploit at Sarnia, who side by means of a locomotive whistle.

when the cable across the river to Port Huron was interrupted, opened communication with the operator on the other Needham, however, bad DO whistle, and was in despair for something by which he could reply. Tied to post near by stood a mouse-colored burro, looking as meek as It is possible far a thoroughly hungry burro to look. 3 "You shall repay the money, Nolson, on Friday morning. at latest.

Another thing John also learned from his intercourse with Mr.

And if anyone. ever spoke the word in his hearing, his invariable an swer was: 41 "Luck is but a fickle Jade to trust in, as I have found out to my cost." -From I rarely have any trouble with garget, never any serious cases. What garget I do not know; what will prevent it- or what I suppose prevents it my. herd--is to keep the cows in a com sense kind of way.

I milk my (Jerseys) right up to the time of calving- some of them haven't been dry for many years--try to feed some kind of laxative feed for six or eight weeke before they calve, let them eat the plar. centa, give a bucketful of warm water with a pint of linseed meal, or a quart of middlings in it as soon as they calved and eaten the placenta- or before they eat the latter, if I know of their calving in time to do so milk clean at night after the calf has sucked, give a handful of hay; that's the first day; letthe calves stay with the cows three days, and that's about the whole story. Some men seem to think that when a cow due to calve she should be dosed with: some kind of medicine. I let my cows dose themselves, as nature directs, by. eating the placenta.

Does anyone suppose that the good Lord put that almost insane craving to eat placenta into the, COWS for no good purpose? I think it one of the greatest safeguards we have. If a cow won't eat placenta, there something wrong with her. The only cow that I ever had that refused died. For a case of garget, the first thing to do is to see that. the cow's bowels are all right; if she is constipated there is danger of worse than garget-I mean in the just calved cow.

If her bowels are alli right--and they ought to be if she has been rightly fed--then rub the under wi va cline, lard or anything of that 1e. The proper way to rub is not always understood; begin gently, very gentle if the udder is very tender, Don't and increase the pressure slowly. rub up and down, or back and forth, but manipulate the udder with both hands the same ad if it were a ball of putty you were trying. to soften, and it astonishing how much you can soften a hard udder if you will go about it the Ir. severe cases, when right way.
