Ohio who died January 15 1899 To this union four children were born two of whom are livingMr E L Davison editor of The NewsrLeader here and Mr M S Davison of Louisville The following history of the career of the deceased appeared in Mondays Louisville Herald and was principally reproduced from an autobiography of Mr DavisonIThe funeral of Edmund iL Dayison who succumbed to the infirmities of old age at the age of eightyfour Friday morning at his home 1052 Second street took place Saturday afternoon from the late residence and the inter ment was intCave Hill Cemetery When the remains were laid away there was buried a man with one of the most interesting and varied careers that perhaps ver lived He was well ac quainted with the highest and most prominent officials in his day and was a foremost figure in Kentucky Born in Springfield Ky in June 1823 Mr Dayison was graduated from Centre College at Danville in 1842 He remained on his farm in Springfield until 1878 when he removed his hone to Louisville and engaged in the brokerage business During his varied ca rer his fortunes rose and fell with the success and failure of numerous specu lations At one time hewas the richest man in the State and often great calamities rendered him almost pennil ss Mr Davison was a large speculator kylandthe close of the great struggle he had from these sources over 100000 profit and during the five years had suffered but one loss About a week beforethe war closed Mr Davison found there were only 20000 barrels of porkI in stock and if the war c few weeks longer this pork would vance rapidly in price and it was then 40 a barrel He purchased 1000 bar rels of it for 40000 cash and also pur chased 1000 barrels for a friend who found later that he had but 25000 in his bank He took his note for the remaining 15000 but in a short while the war ended and pork began to decline in price The friend for Whom he had bought the pork had 6000 more which was turned over to him but in a few days the man failed owing Mr Davis- onJ 9000 Before he could sell his pork the price had declined to 26 a barrel arid before the triend could dispose of his ip had dropped to 23 The assignee of the man who had failed paid Mr Davison 2000 which made his loss on that transaction 7000 and combined with that of the pork selling transaction made altogether 21000 loss At the beginning of the Civil war Mr Davison was an ardent Union man theIijisWhen and when it was the ci aze in the United States he determined he would buy the right to patent them in England and France He secured the patent and sent his two young nephews Elias and Lyne Davison across the waters tQ introduce them in England and France Mr Davi son hired the best performers 0n them in the United States to go with them find when they arrived in England they thought that they had better go to France as the French would in all probability take more readily to them The largest hall that could be secured in Paris was rented and a floor made which was best adapted to skating A great expense was Undergone in decorating it and invitations were sent out to hundreds of the most prom inent people to attend The skates were bought in great quantities hun dreds hastening to procure them Everything ran along swimmingly lorI several months with a prospect of a great fortune ahead for the Davisons when suddenly the FrancoPrussian war broke out and the large hall was seized by the authorities in which to store their arms and ammunition In 1856 Mr Davison with J HI Thomas and W J Robertson bid for and obtained many stage routes in the central eastern and western part of the State and run them successfully and profitably until the outbreak of the war Then Thomas and Robertson sold their shares to Mr Dayi on who ran the routes throughout the entire war The stage drivers had many narrow escapes when soldiers were in the vicinity and during Morgans raid several stage coaches were seized and burned and the drivers admonished not to run them again Once Morgans men captured Mr Davinsons partner Ben Wilson and were about to burn the coach and take Wilson prisoner when a squad of Union men under Major Halasey lashed up and scattered the Confederate forces right and left rescuing Mr Wilson and the passengers Mr Davison owned hundreds of horses and mules during his life Alive stock insurance company was organized in Louisville and he insured many horses for 120 each Soon after they were taken with glanders and died rapidly Mr Davison absorbed their en tire capital of 2000 the company going but of business Since that time there hasnever been another organiza tioh of the kind in the State In the Summer of 1878 Judge Ballard died suddenly creating a vacancy in the judicial district and there were many applicants for the place among them Judge Barr and Kemp Goodloe of Louisville Through his untiring efforts and by talking to President Ruther ford B Hayes with whom he was ac quainted Mr Davison secured the Judgeship for Col W H Hayes who died of heart disease less than a week later in the same manner as had his predecessor Judge Ballard Mr Davison inherited from his father twelve or fifteen slayer and by his marriage got five or six more When they were freed he did not re gad their freedom as a loss but was rather glad for since his youth he had always been impressed that he had no moral right to their services None of the slaves he owned was ever whipped a threat to hire orsell them being suf ficient to control them He never sold a slave and bought one only because the negro mans family were his prop erty and he wanted them to be together In 1862 while Mr Davison was at the Galt House here he attended a so cial gathering one night where he met many of his old army friends and college companions He had an engagement the following morning but awoke just threequarters of an hour too late and with a burning headache He vowed then and there never again to imbibe of any intoxicant in a bar room or outside at home or abroad This resolution was made fortytwo years ago and he never broke it For six years prior to his death the picturesque old man had been totally and During all that time he never left the house but remained indoors studying and reading by means of raised letters Three years ago he wrote an autobiography of his interest- in career with one of his grand children acting as his amanuensis The story was a thrilling history of the life of a most versatile character and was written in a frank style especially for the benefit of his children and

who is practically the author and father of the present law allowing the manufacture of denatured alcohol free of tix has given quite an extended interview in an eastern paper in which he outlines the great possibilities of this new industry and its possible value in making and maintaining a market for some farm products Among other things Senator Hansbrough said The44 farmers are also more interested than any other class in the question of an abundant supply of liquid motor fuel for the interiiaf combustion engines which are cQmi g ito general use on the farms in all parts of the country The marked increase in the use of these engines in the last few yea s has had the effe t of advancing the price of gasolene now the only available motor fuel fully 300 per cent and unless some substitute can be secured its cost will become prohib itive In testimony submitted to the Comjmittee on Ways and Means by Professor Elihu Thomson of the General Electric Company it was shown that4 tendedexperimen had establish d the fact that when used in a properly constructed engine alcoholis a highly satisfactory motor fuel a given quantity producing as much ener gy jas the same quantity of gasolene That the substitution of denatured al cohol for gasolene is not merely a theqry but an accomplished fact J shovn by the experience of Germany to yhich Mr Goebbels of the Otto Gas Engine Company refers as follows As to the total number of enginps in use at that time In 1903 in Germany statistiqs show that one central station in jBerlin alone had contracts for sup plying 1011 alcohol engines These weie distributed among various indust riel asfollows Agricultural pbrp6ses pumping pjants 84 creameries 63felectrt light plants 52 woodwork ing machinery 45 flour mills 40 ba 30Ipurposelsl power bne great advantage to the agri cuitur l interests of the entire country which will be secured as the result of a workable law providing for untaxed denatured alcohol is that the price of those farm products from which it may be most cheaply produced can never fall below a point which would give theL farmers a satisfactory profit In other words this legislation practically giyes the farmer a policy of insurance against loss in growing corn and pota toes Corn at 30 cents a bushel would banish kerosene as a source of light and heat and gasolene as a source of power at the present prices of these articles At the present time gasolene of a pOor quality costs the farmers in the Northwestern States 22 to 30 cents a gallon and all indications point to an increase in those prices owing to the constantly increasing demand in all sections of the country With the greater safety of alcohol at equal or nearly equal prices it wouldbe pre ferred to gasolene and the demand for enginesalonesurplus corn at a price of not less than 30 cents and probably at 35 cents a bushel With the assurance of an un limited demand for corn at a price that would avoid the necessity pf its ever being sold at a loss and an enlarged demand for potatoes etc the farmers can raise without fear of a glutted market annual crops of these products much larger than eyen the record crops of former years In my opinion the most practicable way in which alcohol cart be profitably produced by the farmers for the pres ent at least is through the establish ment of cooperative plants by a num berof farmers m suitable localities I believe that in such plants cane utili zed inferior and rejected grain and at certain seasons starchyieldin vege tables so as to supply the local demand for denatured

of all kinds is the tenor of the June report of the State Agricultural Department issued today by Commissioner Hubert Vreeland Crops have been retarded by frost and cool damp weather and cut worms and army worms are reported as plentiful and doing great damage in some sections Much of the corn land has not yet been planted and there are reports from many sections of shortage of tobacco plants and only a small per cent of the crop planted The report follows ClIn our May report we started off by saying The month of April will long beI remembered as the coldest and mostj unfavorable for crops and spring work for many years The same can be truthfully said of the month of May The oldest inhabitants claim they have never seen a spring so cold and the condition so unfavorable for work and growing crops Damaging frosts as late as tHe 28th of May Crops of allJ kinds are far behind and in most cases any thing but promising And to addI to the damage done by frosts and cool damp weather the cut worms Were never more plentiful and destructive doing great damage to young corn to bacco and garden truck The army a worm has also gotten in destructive work in a large part of the State They first made their appearance in the western end of the State and gradually showed up until many counties in the central part are effected by them manywheatravages In some localities corn fields and earlyplanted tobacco were damag ed by them The low condition of meadows pastures and clover is largely accounted for by these invaders Much of the corn land has not yetdbeen planted on account of too cold and wet and many fields of the early planted had to be planted over The acreage compared with a fiveyear average is a little short being 96 Condition is 77 which is fairly good con sideling the weather and worms f The acreage of wheat is 90 Percent a of a fiveyears average Condi tion is 82 a falling off of seven points since our May report The oat crop is a little short in acreage and has falleno off in condition from 83 in May to 79 at this time Rye is some better in acreage and conditions Hemp is 83 per cent of a fiveyear average and 90 in condition There is a general complaint of a scarcity of tobacco plants and lateness for being ready for transplanting It looks now that it will be impossible to plant a full crop arid much of that will be late Only a small per cent of the crop was planted June 1 This is ap plicable to both burley and dark The scarcity and high price of stock peas has cut the acreage dt that crop Apples only promise about a third of a crop and peaches nearly a failure The berry crop promises a fair yield T Gardens are backward and the cold sJttweather gave tender Vegetation quite asset back exA Strong Man In the sixteenth century there lived a remarkably strong man a French major named Barsabas One day heE took up an anvil weighing 500 pounds land hid it under his coat He could crush between his fingers the limbs oft big animals One day seeing a crowd looKing at an enormous dancing bear he offered to wrestle with the animal The major threw the bear down several times and judging it unworthy of further struggles slew the animal with his fist and carried it away on hISc shoulders amid the cheers of the crowd Another day seeing several officers of his regiment surrounded by an angry crowd he ran to them knocking people down right and left as a child does with a pack of cards The crowd exI asperated turned round on him but seizing two oi his assailants one with each hand he used them as clubs on the crowd who astonisned at hw extra ordinary display of strength quickly drew back Once he squeezed to pulp the hand of a mart who wanted to fight him Barsabas sister was also re markable for her strength Some burglars entered a convent where she was She threw one out of the window and killed two others with a pillar she tore down and Used as a club Balti- morej Sun bRatt 1fr Hairodsburg Herald Mr E D Sal lee who says1Jthat he has y because of a very large snake that had made its home at his crib and barn for two years He is not very fond of snakes and on several occasions while shucking corn in the crib in picking up the shucks he got hold of the reptile The other day while harnessing a horse in the barn the snake came in and looked so vicious that he dispatched it As the whole country is overrun with rats he now expects to have this share but believes he would rather have the vroclents than be constantly gaming Cross the snake l III IA FewWords of Good dvlefor Both Old and Young iiowto Beautify aBathr om1 The Importance or nnviiig nn attrac tin comfortable and sanitary With room Is being more and more appre elated and the clevor housekeeper curtails the expense of every room In the house rather than that of the bathroom A bathroo n should above all be light and airy To those who lleln the old house who do not wish to replace the old fashioned plumbing for the more mod ern Improvements I would like to offer a few suggestions as to how to make the most of what they already have writes correspondent of the Cljicagb RecordHerald we 1ll first consider the walls which are probably either painted pa peredwith a tiled paper or left In the rough plaster If paint has been used another coat or two will be all that Is needed If paper was adopted it will probably be coming off the wall if It has been up any length of time as the steam of a bathroom does not permit paper to remain long oil the walls as rule This can either be repapered or it can be scraped and painted vhicb would be the most serviceable ajid the cheapest in the long rim If thd walls have been left In the rough plaster a pretty effect could be obtained by having them calcimined with a soft shade of apple green or else they could be stenciled in paneled effects with a suitable design of little fishes or wa tel lilies The floors of an old bathroom are In variably of wood and these are best covered with linoleum or cork carpet On this should be thrown a washable rug Fortunately there are severa1 bathroom rugs on the market to ay the hand woven nigs which are sc in vogue are much used for bath rooms jand besides being dainty and artisticiarfe reversible and vaslmble Tlurrml fashioned metal tubs need to be constantly enameled This can easily be done by the housewife heI old paint should first be removed withI soutlolnof caustic soda then the bathtub should have two coats of white paint and a third coat of white enamel Using white paint for the first two coats is cheaper than using three coats f the enamel If a curtain is Deeded nothing Is nicer than the madras curtains sold for hall and bathroom windows They are made to look like stained glass and pretty touches of color can be introduced into the bathroom In tills way besides they are not easily seen through and yet keep out very little light This madras has no dressing and therefore is not affected by steam A bathroom should be cleaned each day the floor wiped and the basins nail fittings rubbed A clean and well appointed bathroom is a luxury thatj one never grows tired of How to Cook Rice Rightly Few Housewives understand bow to cook rice so that It puffs into a snowy mass each kernel distinct as it is serv d on Its native shores says the Wash ington Star In the first place wash thoroughly through several cold waters rubbing the kernels between the hands This Is to remove all the loose flour on the outside of the grains Aft the water runs clear turn Into a col antler and drain Some fastidious cooks even go so far as to lay the washed rice on a dry cloth and wipe make sure that all the flour Is off the grain Put Into n deep jstewpau allowing one quart of boiling water to a cap of washed rice add n teaspoonful of salt and let It come to a good bon Cook steadily for twenty minutes lifting the rice occasionally a fork to prevent its sticking Shake the kettle also for tbis same purpose but neyer stir or mast with- a spoon Take from the fire pour off the water if any is left be sure to save the water for your stock potlI then place on the back of tbe stove the oven or over a pot of hot wntelI where it will finish swelling lthoutI burning Cooked ill this way you will find the rice plump light and white each grain distinct and separate How to Freshen Old Furniture Sometimes the pieces of solid ohl fashioned furniture that we nil like well become too dark and dingy look- Ing In spite of the application of furnl ture polish occasionally says the Chris tine and Evangelist This was the case with a walnut desk and by cx- perlmenting a remedy was found It vas so simple and has since been so successful with other furniture that we give It for the benefit of other house keeperqxwho lave found the same dif I polished surface was first care fully dusted then washed with n soft cloth and pearline suds which do not Injure It as strong soaps would As soon as one place was washed clean so that It snowed tbe grain of the wool bright and new looking It was rinsed with another cloth and clear water and wiped dry The creases were reached with a soft hand brush so that every part was brlgbt and clean After It was all dry a good furniture polish Was applied and then the usual rubbing was given Of course such a cleaning would not be needed very often but It Is worth while occasionally f Iwto Cure Tight Doors IIevery day and say tliqt tbe drawers of dressers and other furniture stick fast mid cannot be opened or shut without great dlfll ciiltjV said the complaint man In o downtown furujture store to a reporter of the New York Mall This Is a trou ble with much furniture especially that which Is new and Is especially common In the spring What do we alp ill such cases We simply tell the customers to wet the surface ota bar of common laundry soap and rub It firmly over the parts of the wood that stick ThIs makes the surface smooth and slippery and In nearly all cases the dnnyer will slide beenlovenedThis also is valuable with floors which In new flats nre likely to settle or are apt to scrape at the top as the b ulldlug settles Just use soap on them and save the trouble of calling n carpenter who will plane the varnish off China cabinet doors with curved glass cause us a lot of trouble but most of the tightness can be remedied by the use of soap and a few applications of sandpaper The furniture man gave another helpful If mission furniture with the dull finishuses Its smooth surface and characteristic waxy appearaiiqe he snldudonot despair and send It to the n povator Take a pound cake of common floor wax and rub It over the sur face until the finish Is restored If you have no floor wax use beeswax mid If you prefer something made espe dally for the purpose you can buy liquid preparations one of which jwlll tnIhiewhich will duplicate the original flu lSh How to Have a Clean Kitchen If tiles are out of the question for a kitchen it remains to get the net best thing Oil paint Is the only available wall covering for a kitchen and should be finished with a coat of enamel says the Boston Traveler The kitchen walls will require washing quite as muck and almost as frequently as the floor White tiles make the finest possible covering not only because they show dirt but because they can be easily cleaned This require inept must be met with any other substitute and this to a considerable ex tort Is given In a very good way by oil paint finished with enamel Some kitchen designers have recommended several successive coats of oil mixed with varnish a method that Is said to give excellent results and doubtless does so It gives the wall a somewhat dark tone while with a lighter shade may be used Wbatjever color Is selected it should not b1 chosen because It conceals dirt o room accumulates dust and dirt as the kitchen partly b cnus Irrupldly mer the windows are nil Tile admitting clouds of outside dust partly because of the unavoidable dust from the range and partly because more or less dirt Is produced In cook Ing operations The housekeeper who Imagines her kitchen clean because she seesfo dirt on her walls Is a most sad person If the walls are so dark as to show no dirt one may be nssurdUie dirt Is there and it is likely until It becomes so of fensive that a complete renomtlon of the room Is necessary How to Put a Cake Together Tlefollowing way of putting a cake together never tails says the Boston Herald Work the butter and sugar to cream bent the whites and yolks of eggs separately tbe whites to a stiff froth the yolks to a cream then add yolks to the creamed butter and sugar afterward add the milk then the fla coring next tile whites of the eggs and lastly the flour by degrees If fruit Is added dredge flour over It stirring It In slowly and thoroughly be fore tile flour Where the recipe calls for baking powder find you are out of It use soda and cream of tartar In the proportion of one level teaspoonful orI soda to two heaping teaspoonfuls cream of tartar Sift the cream of tartar Into the flour dissolve the soda In a teaspoonful of boiling water add ing It to the cake before adding the Whlfesof the eggs When sour milk Is used always use soda not baking powder How to Make Feet Appear Small Perhaps there Is no better Illustration of how carefully the tnurt girl considers every little detail of tier dress than the new slipper which the girl with the large foot Is wearing She scorns all the gayly colored brilliantly embrafcl ered evening tippets and wears Instead a plain black satin slipper which fits the toot snugly and has a medi um high French heel and an excep tonally large black satin or black vel vet bow In front which really has a remarkable way of apparently reducing the size of the foot l IAJewish Colony 01 LaRue Herald An organization known as the Jewish Aid Society of which Ra bi Levi of Chicago is the head has ought a body of land on the hasIas Fruit Firm of Kentucky The land was bought and paid for by an agent of the Society and it will be stocked and pro vided with the necessary buildings It will be given for the use of worthy Jews and for those who from illness find it desirable to seek country air and more wholeson e food than city life provides The will be maintained by the Society ui til the colony is thor oughly seltsu porting and in good nancial condition Several years ago a very wealthy Jew of New York City died and left an immense sumseveral millions for this purpose and this is one of the colonies to be established with the fund his will provided it being a rigidly adheredto policy of the Jews that none of their race shall ever have to be dependent upon public charity At present there are only four mem bers of the colony here and their fami lies have not yetarrived In a short time there will be probably twentyfive or thirty families of them and they will engage in raising poultry and small fruit They are good citizens and will undoubtedly make goud

Indeed we have heard few ble sug= gestions The situriis more or less serious and the automo bile is being generally discussed Jin the county The agitation has been caused by reckless driving jof these machinesby men or boys who have at various times utterly disregarded the safety of men women and children who travel in buggies and other ve hicles upon the public highways The time has come when something must be done but what 4 that something is we are un able to say Women who live in the country are afraid to leave home in a buggyeven with lithe old reliable family horse doing service in the shafts They have no assurance that they will not meet one of those dontcareifI dokillyou motorist under whose belt the contents of a quart is fermenting and brewing mean ness The present automobile law may npt cover the ground corn 44letel it may not give the peo J pie a sufficient number of safe Tinware and t Glassware at i COST guards but it is all we have now we can do no more than force allmotorists who pass through Washington county to comply with this law The law was printed in The Sun last week but it is herewith again presented Read it carefully clip it out and put it in your pocket Become an automibile lawyer The law is as follows yehiderate of speed than is reasonable arid proper at the time and place considering the traffic aid the use of the high putinspeedthancities and parks Motor vehicles means all vehicles run by gasoline or other explosives steam and electricity ex cepting such as runs on tracks and tramways On approaching crossing of highways bridges going around curves or down hills the vehicle shall be under control and must not go at a greater rate than six miles per hour walkingridingperson running the vehicle motor shall give a signal by bell or horn and use every means to insure safety to the person walking riding or driving and to keep from frightening any ani mal and must have the vehicle under control and if apparently necessary come to a stop The driver of a motor shall at the request or signal made by holding up the hand of a per son riding or dnving bring his vehicle to a stop If necessary and if travel longenink to pass in safety If an animal requestedshall cause the vehicle to stop as long preventinjuryto passing vehicles are the same as in Other cases in approaching an inter secti n of highways motor vehicles must keep to right of the center of the inter ection when turning to the right and i ass to the left of intersection when turning to the left Every motor vehic e shall be provided with good

the filing of a suit The abovelaw does not apply to incorporated towns but was made for the protection of people living in the country The first few sentences of the law regula ting speed are worthless It would be almost impossible to convict a motorist for running at too high speed He arid his party would testify that the cars speedwas within the limit of the law And there you would be Up against it The evidence of the automobiling party would be as good before any court as the evidence of the marl or the wom an who was thrown out of the buggy and battered against the rocks upon the rpadside and notwithstanding that the court and jury would be in sympathy with you the verdict would be in favor of thi former because they out you Signalevery motorist to stop his machine and if he doesnt do it pop it to him good and strong He will not swear that he stop dangerlousseeing the signal were in the majority And he would fess up Until other laws can be passed we must get along the

Just bytheentrusted the great seal of the Con federate States to Jones with instructions to hide it and never reveal the hiding place Jones did as he was byIhim 15000 to reveal the spot where t he had hidden the seal But no money could tempt him to betray the trust re posed in him by Jefferson Davis j The secret will be buried with Jones who tells When Mr Davis- realized that it was only a short time until Richmond would fall he sent me with Mrs DavisGod bless her memo ryand the children to Charlotte N C I had about 13000000 under my care and hauled it around in a freight car from one point

Jefferson Davis an infinitely greater man than those masquerading Southerners placed absolute confidence and reliance in a colored servant Jones has now a position in the service of the United States Senate Large as the sum offered for the Con federate seal by the exConfederates a much larger might be had from other sources But Jones will for the sake of his old master and adored Missus carry the secret of the seals resting place to a grave that his fidelity WI consecrate The oldtime negro is respect ed and loved bv the white people of the South His life is made as happy as conditions will per

being rain one of those New York days that give a hesitating suicide renewed courage to cut the mortal coil By ten oclock it hadset tied down on the stock exchange and its surrounding infernos with a clam miness that damped the spirits of the most rampant bulls No class In the world is so susceptible to atmospheric conditions as stockgamblers Many a stouthearted one has been known to postpone the inauguration of a long planned coup merely because the al filled hIs blood with the dank chill o superstition Because of the expected Sugar pyrotechnics stock exchange members had gathered early the brokers offices were overcrowded be toe t nthe morning papers not onV in New York but in Boston Phil adelphia and other centers were fill ed with stories of the big rise that was to take place In Sugar The knowing ones saw the earmarks of the systems pressagent in these stories and they knew that this in dustrious institution had not sat up the night before because of insomnia All the signs pointed to a killing and and a iterrlfic onepointed so plaint y that the bearrand Sugar shirts found no hope atmosphere or the date Bob afternoon ad not been near the office the before andas he had not come In by five minutes toten I de bided to go over to the exchange and see if he were going to mix ub in the belting of the Sugar bears I had no specific reasons for thinking he was Interested except his recent queer actions particularly his hanging to the Sugarpole yet doing nothing the day before But it is one of thE best established traditions of stock gambledom that when an operator has been bitten by a rabid stock he is invariably attracted to it every time afterward that it shows signs of frothing More than all I had one of those strong nowhereborn nowherecradled intuitions common to those living In the stock gamblin g world which made me feel the creepy shadow of coming events As on that dak a sew weeks Tomorrows Friday Tlrteenth the crowd waS at the n itpole but its alignment was different There In the center were Barry Conant and his trusted lieutenants but no opposing rival None of those hundreds of brokers showed that desperate resolve to do or die that is born of a neces sity They were there to by pr sell but not to put up a life or death one medependstheresult fight Those who were long of stock could easily be distinguished by their expressions of joy from the shorts who had seen the handwriting on the wall and were filled with uncertainty fear terror The demeanor of Barry Conant and his lieutenants expressed confidence they were going to do what they were THE SUN 1 Vorc to do T y sho uy their tight buttoned coats ands 6ured shoulder that they expected lots of rush push and haul work but apparently they anticipated no lastditch lighting The gong pealed and the crowd of brokers sprang at one another but only for blood not flesh bone heart and soul just blood The first price on Sugar was 211 for 3000 shares Someone sold it in a block Barry Conant bought it It did not require three eyes to see that the seller was one of his lieutenants This meant what Is known as a wash sale a fictitious one arranged in advance between two brokers to establish the basis for the trades that are to follow one of those minor frauds of stockgambling by which the public is deceived and the traders and plungers are handicap ped with loaded dice In principle it is a device older than stock exchanges themselves and is put to use else where than on the floor For instance four genuine buyers want a particular animal worth 200 at a horse auction Its owners pal starts the bidding at 400 and the four not being up in horse values are thereby Induced to reach for it at between 400 and 500 But human nature whether at horse sales or at stockgambling loves to be hinkeydlnked as much as the moth to play tag with the candle flame In five minutes Sugar was selling at 221 and the frantic shorts were grab bing for It as though there never was to be another share put on sale while Barry Conant and his lieutenants were must Industriously pushing it fingertipsioffered by genuine sellers or by tak ing what their own pals threw in the air I was oot surprised to see Bobs tall form edged in the crowd about twothirds of the way from the cen ter Every other active floor member was there too Even Ike Bloomen stein and Joe Barnes who seldom went into the big crowds were on hand perhaps to catch a flier for their Thanksgiving turkey money perhaps to getas near the killing as possible jthedayBarry Conant I said to myself He is trying to fathom Barry Conants movements but for what purpose puzzled me The hands of the big clock on the wall showed that trading had been 30 minutes under way and still Barry Conant was pushing up the price His voice had just rung out 25 for any part of 6000 when like an echo it sounded through the hall Sold It was Bob He hail worked his way to the center of the crowd and stood In front of Barry Conant He was not the Bob who had taken Barry Conants1 gaff that afternoon a few weeks before I never saw him IpossessedHepower A cold cynical smile played around the corners of his mouth as he looked down upon his opponent The effect upon Barry Conantwas different from that of Bobs ast bid on the day when Beulah Sand hopes went skyward In dust It did not rouse in him the wild furious desire showedealert prolific mind to exercise all its cunning I think that in that one mo ment Barry Conant recalled his suspicions of the day before when he had wondered wbat Bobs presence in the crowd meant and that he saw again the picture of Bob on the day when he himself had ditched Bobs treasurer train He hesitated for just the fraction of a second while he waved with lightling like rapidity a set of finger he4quared25 for 5000 Cold cold as the voice of a condemning judge rang Bobs Sold 25 for 5000 Sold 25 for 5000 Sold Their eyes were fixed upon each other in Barrys a de aridcontempthushed their own bids and offers un til it could have truthfully been said that tie floor of the stock exchange was Quiet an almost unheardof thing in like circumstances Again Barry Conants voice 25 for 5000 J Sold Barry1Conanthad that for the first time in all his won derful career ho realized that the system was to meet its Nemesis or what the cause none could tell perhaps not even Barry Conant him self but some emotion caused his olive face for an Instant to turn pale quiverOnceThat Bob saw the pallor that he caught the quiver was evident to all for the Instant his sold rang out he followed It with 5004 at 24 23 22 20 Neither Barry Conant nor any of his lieutenants got in a take it although whether they wanted to or not was an open question until Bob allowed his voice to dwell Just like a pendulum swing of time on the 20 It was as it he were tantalizing them into sticking by their guns By the time he paused Barry Conants nerve was hick for his piercing Take t had linked to it 20 for any part of = 10000 The bid was yet on his lips when Bobs drop voice rang out- Sold Any part of 25000 at 19 18 15 10 Hell was now loose Back and forth up against the ran around the room and back and around again the crowd surged for 15 of the wildest craziest minutes In the history of the New York stock exchange a history replete with records of wild and crazy scenes At last from sheer exhaustion there came a ten minutes lull which was used In comparing trades At the be ginning of the respite Sugar was sell ing at 155 for in that quarter hour of madness it had broken from 210 to 155 but when the ten minutes had elapsed the stock had worked back fo 1SJ BarryjConant had again tajtea the center of the crowd after hastily scanning the brief notes handed him by messengerboys and giving orders to his lieutenants He had evidently received reenforcements In the form of renewed orders from his princfpals Many of the faces that ringed the inner circle of that crowd were fright ful to look upon some white as though just lifted from hospital pil lows others red to the verge of apo plexy all Drained as though await- Ing the the jury with lice or death verdict They all knew that Bob had sold more than a hundred thousand shares of Sugar upon which the profits must be more than 4000000 Would he resume selling or wal he through Was it short stock which must be bought back or long stock had If long whose stock Were the Insiders selling out on one togetherants movements were Camemeyer and Standard Oil emptying their bag preparatory to the slaughter of the Washington contingent All these questions wee rushing through the heads of that crowd of brokers like steamthrouga boiler now hot now cold but alwtys at high pressure for upon the correctness of the answer depended lie fortune of many who ortheBarry Conants usually Impassive face wore a tinge of anxiety Indeed Bob was the only one In the center of that throng that showed no sign of what was going on behind it The same cynical smile that had been there since the opening still played around the corners of his sleuth as he Squared himself in front of his opponent All knew now that he was not through Barry Con ant had evidently decided to force the b Cloie to the fighting although more cautiously than before 67 for a thousand One of his lieutenants bid 67 for 500 another 67 for 300 and as Bob had not yet shown his intention of meet ing their bids 67 for different amounts was heard all over the house Bob might have been tossing a metal coin to decide the advisability of buying back what he had sold he might have been adding up the bids as they were made He said nothing a fraction of a minute which to those tortured men must have seemed like an age Then with a wave of his hand as though delivering a benediction he swept the circle with a coldblooded Sold the lots 5600 in all Sixtyseven for a thousand again Barry Conants bid Sold 67 for 5000 Sold 66 for a thousand Sold The drop from 5000 to 1000 and a dollar a share In Barry Conants bids was the mortally wounded but still grime generals Sound the Re treat Bob heard it Any part o 10000 at 65 64 62 60 The din was now as fierce as before The entire crowd all but Barry Conant and his lieutenants seemed to have concluded that Bobs renewal pf attack mean that ho was the winning side and those who had been hanging on t their stock hoping against hope an those who were short and had been undecided whether to cover or to hold on and sell more for greater profits vied with one another in a frantic effort td sell All could now feel the coining panic All could see that it was a bad one as the least informed on the floor knew that there was a tremendous amount of Sugar stock in the Hands of novices at and of others who had bought it at high prices Sugar was now dropping two three five dollars a Share between trades and the panic w4t8 spreading to the other poles as is always the case for when there are sudden large losses in one stock the losers must throw over the other stocks they hold to meet their loss and thus the whole structure tumbles like a house of cards Sugar had just crossed 110 when the loud bang of th presidents gavel resounded the room a si lenceas of death AH knew th jmeaning of the sound the ominous ever heard in a stock e change calling the temporary suspension of business while the Ares dent announces the failure of some member or house PERKINS CO Announce that They Cannot Mee Their This statement that one of the old est houses had been swamped In the crash Bob had started caused turth frantic selling and as though eve member had employed the lull to refill his lungs a howl arose that pealed and walled to the dome- I watered Bolt closely in fact it was Impossible for me to take my eyes off him he seemed absolutely unmindful of the agonizing shriek- about him for the frenzied broke were no longer crying their bids offers but screaming them He still continued to hammer Sugar offering it in thousands and tens of thousand lots Again and again the gavel fell a again and again an announcement failure was followed by biood curdil howls When Sugar struck SOnot 180 but plain 80lt seemed that t last day of stock speculation was

declared The doctor laughed good humoredly Whats up Is some fickle admirer who forgot for the first time to Senc1I you a box of candy for your birthday due ont there this afternoon 1 Come on It isnt every day I can run off and its no pleasure to go alone Betsys head swain with y perspec tive of a chain of horrors opening up by her acquiescence but on theother hand her brothers curiosity was not to be aroused too much He had a most uncomfortable habit of going to the bottom of things Well she said reluctantly Ill go She laughed a bit hysterically But Id rather be hanged Her brother remembered with some uneasiness that Betsy had not been herself of late She was not so gay and fun loving as usual and he often caught her mooning That was what she was doing back at the office just now and it decided him to run away with her for awhile Betsy dont you feel well ho asked as they scrambled off a cross town car at the ferry slip Botheration yes What a silly question But though her words were careless she avoided his eyes and looked off down the Hudson You cant get across this day she announced with perceptible relief The Ice Is all caked up here on the New York side so that a launch

determined looking physician who had seized his sister arm as the ferry gong sjounded nn ivpn hustling her on board j InIr Betsy looked furtively at the vessel lying low and gray with her nose up stream us the ferry passed There was much deep interest amounting even to fascination In her ghuice hut she feigned extreme indifference Sev eral other people were evidently on the same quest and as the ferry near ed the Jersey shore a cry of disappoint ment went up Not n launcji or row boat in sight It looked very much as though those who were not good swim mers would have to content themselves with ferry glimpses of the famed ship and cameras began snapping industriously Again Betsys manner becamevmore spontaneous You wlJ get out to the Roosevelt will you She twitted her brother joyously

the wood pile and brought up before a rotten log enmeshed in ice cakes that led out to a row of decrepit old canal ats lying out of commission along the shores A man appeared around the corner of the little turret on top of one of the boats and asked if they could row SYgll I should say the doctor shouted And Betsy was forced to scramble up the perpendicular old ladder on to the boat thence across and down a ladder into a flat bottomed old fishing boat at the other end Her took oft his overcoat and wrapped about her carefully before he seize the oars and fell in with the stroke o the old river man The doctor was studying Betsy closely It looked to him very tmiuc like a case of the heart he speculated as they drew near the ship When she weakly made excuse to remain in th rowboat while her brother clambered over the ship he was certain that the masculine reason lurked on shipboard So Betsy perforce boarded the Roose velt The ship was In gala dress will- many sightseers aboard As Betsy nn her brother stood on the deck clutch ing their hats in the stiff breeze a young brown weather beaten man stepped up and rather shyly held out his humid to Betsy Instantly the doctor looked at his
