Lightning and WindSZ M STAPLES T A MuiuU5fli Agent IthicI The Horse and flute flarket The strong condition of the horse and mule market at the St Louis Na tional Stock Yards is shown by the following by Live Stock Reporter ltrLas Southern buyers are purchasing a higher quality of mules for cotton work than ever before in the history of that trade When buyers from the South appeared at market this season fortheir mules they found them high er than in half a dozen years Fifteen to 151 hand mules which they had bought thousands of three and four years ago at 860 to 880 they found had to 8100 to 8120 for the majority of them and more for others Instead of buying a common class to cut the average of prices they have gone the market one better and even bought choiceroncsrsomo buyers reaching out or extra hoary weight and hair in their purchases and paying up as high as 8135 to 8150 They have evidently figured that if they must pay higher prices at all that they will pay a little more and get the best there is for the purpose The South Is having an era of progress and profit which is forci btyattested by its ability to PlY the advanced prices for mules The advance in mule prices from the basis of two weeks ago has placed the market on a very high basis as compared with a year ago Buyers who have not been at market for some time stay awhile and look around at other buyers purchasing at the advanced scale before they become accustom ed to the situation and are ready perate To tell a Southern buyer two years back that he would pay the prices that are now current would have incited his derision but now that cotton is higher and the planters have money enough to pay the advance caused mainly by the shortage in mules there is little difference in the long run Higher priced cotton always made higher priced mules and dealers all agree that the market is hotter for all concerned even the consumer when on a higher basis The margin of speculation and profit is wider HORSES During no previous period has the demand beeob ter or the ices more profitable for small noises known as British cavalry animals than this week Not that values were higher than the week before for it would be impossible for them to further advance without those holding contracts absolutely eliminating the margin of profit between the purchaser and the contract price but all tbe specific ders for the kind were centered at this market and every animal with a reasonable chance of suitability was wanted by several interests and rapid ly taken On the lure shuts it was only a question of who got the bid into the top notch first on the speculative kinds the competition was tight The top offerings were taken at 890 to 895 At the latter price there were only a small proportion negotiated but at 890 to 9250 the sales were numerous and at 880 to 890 they were plentiful The speculative kind sold variously but principally at 870 to It was Im possible to closely estimate how many were bought as buyers resorted heavi ly to private trading where possible The claim of other cough medicines to be as good as Chamberlains are ef fectually set at rest in the following testimonial Mr C D Glass an em ploye of Bartlett Dennis Co Gardiner Me He says I bad kept adding to a cold and cough in the winter of 1897 trying every cough medicine I heard of without permanent help until one day I

always a man to me and I shall never think of him as a woman I cant Doctor William C Gallagher 1he physician who attended Hall in her last illness was called He said that he bad attended Hall at intervals for a year previous to her death and that she suffered frcm a cancer of the breast When you examined her then din you discover her to be a omau Idecine to answer that I went there

but as he left the stand Coroner Zucca saidDoctor Gallagher will you tell the jury whether the deceased was a fc male or a manr She was a femalea woman said Dr Gallagher The doctor was recalled tosay wheth er not Halls last illness could have been caused by being sandbagged and he stated that such a thing might have caused it The jurys verdict however was Resolved That the deceased came to her

Mulhattan the great and famous newspaper liar being in sane call to mind a story which many Larne county people aro fa miliar with and which proved to be a fake as stupendous and far reaching as any that the famous Joe ever worked off on an unsus pecting public It was a story of a talking rock The rock was discoveredby our own Bill Mitch ell about fifteen miles from Hodg ensville and to get to it onehad to pass from hill to hill from hol low to hollow over mammoth rocks and through tangled brush across swift flowing streams and through a country infested with rattlesnakes and wildcats but notwithstanding these barriers people went to see this wonderful talking rock They found it but of course it had no tongue told no tales and asked no ques tions notwithstanding one gentle man said he heard it exclaim What fools ye mortals be Of course each crowd that visited tht place told that there uuttnlU v isted the talking rock und in tin wayother suckers pursuaded i themselves to go eel tlIH ii ler ful ruck About half of the pop ulation of Larue and adjoining counties went to see the wonder and had it not been for an exceed soughtotit satisfy his curiosity by a visit to the rock giving the thing away from his pulpit it is very likely that each succeeding generation in this part of the State would have visited Mitchells talking rock Joe Mulhattan who was at that time a traveling man heard of the story while here one day and hunted Mr Michell He took from his coat a blue ribbon and pinned it on Bill saying You have won the champion ship I have been knocked out the honors are yours

year for pensions thirtysx years after the close of the civil war to which the enormous charge is chiefly due exceeds the aggre gate payments on the same amount during the five years from 1869 tc 1834

It nearly equals the total expen ditures of the Federal Govern ment excluding interest on the public debt in 1871 only thirty years ago It is more than five times what the republic was paying for pen

property stocks and bonds Romantic as it was for the har dy miner after many years of rough life to become attached to the oneyear old youngster he saw playing in a garden next to his home those who knew him best thought it even more interesting that he should adopt the child and then should make her heir to his millions But this he did and now comes the most extraordinary feature of tho case In his will it has jus become known Creede imposed but one condition That was tha the entire property should go to Dorothy only ifshe has lead a proper and virtuous life This unique feature of Creedes will was brought to light by the institution ofa suit for 250 week by Mrs Creede widow o the millionaire minner Sha ha not lived happily with her hus band and some time during the year before he died he paid her 20000 in relinquishment ofall claims against him She went to home in Alabama and the inten tion was that at the end of the year Creede should obtain a di vorce on the ground of abandonment

had some trade with the Philippine Islands and trade is the cause of the present trouble over there Since August 1898 we have exported to the Philippines less than 20000000 worth of Koods not counting military supplies The imports average about 1000000 per month But it has cost us something to Ee cure that trade It has cost us up wards of 200000000 iu cash In other words It has cost us 810 fur every one dollars worth of goods sold in the Philippines But money is not all we have expended in order to secure the cow merce of the Philippines Since Au gust 1898 192 American soldiers have been killed while engaged in the work of furthering our Philippine com merce During the same time 439 American soldiers have died of wounds and accidents while working to ad theesamrtimee2120 American
