Cufhbert Leader: "The man with the hoe"—and the women and children, too— Is endeavoring to rescue his 10-cent cot ton from the throes of that very vigor ous and pestiferous growth, grass. A Georgia Tomato. Greenesboro Herald-Journal: Mr. John Youngblood had a mammoth tomato on ex hibition at Dr. Rice's drug store this week of his own raising. It was a cross be tween the "Beefsteak" and "Ponderopa" varieties, and weighed two pounds ten ounces. We believe this is the largest to mato that has been raised in Greene coun ty. if not in the state. Wine Industry Is Profitable. Americus Times-Recorder: Never be fore has such a magnificent crop of grapes been grown in the vineyards about Amer icus, and our thrifty farmers are turning this luscious fruit to good account. In some of the vineyards about town the yield of grapes of the finer varieties will amount to several tons, and already the fruit is being converted into wine. Sever al thousand gallons of excellent wine will be made right here within the next two weeks, and the price received for it later will pay the producers handsomely. Boss Pencil Packers. Culhbert Leader: On last Saturday Mr. Si Mathews reported that in Douglas and Mathews’ peach orchard Mr Claude Douglass and Mr. Charles Streetman had each packed one hundred crates of Klber tas In seven hours, making two hundred for the two. This is at the rate of more than fourteen crates an hour, or a era re in little over four minutes. He said they packed faster than one hand could nail the tops on This beats the national rec ord so far as we have been able to as certain. Shipping Peaches. Mershallville, in spite of the rainy weather ar.d the consequent loss of con siderable fruit, has forwarded io date 32h cars of fruit, averaging about 583 crates, and the work goes bravely on all day and part of the night. Farms are three or four miles from the depot an<s hauling goes on often till 9 o'clock at night Rain does not stop it. During the continued rains of last Thursday an.t Friday picking and packing went on. To • top it meant dollars lost.. The industry furnishes employment—and higher wee than is usual in the country—to a larg-s number of laborers, who come from miles around to get employment. Rome Paper Changes Hands. The Rome Georgian nnd New Era has charged hands, Mrs. Mosely selling her interest to Messrs. J. C. Lawrence, late of the Marion. Ala., Standard, J. B. Nevln, local reporter, and W. O. Clement, business manager. The Georgian and New Era will be continued as the organ of the Federation of Womens’ Club. About the first of August they will issue the daily and weekly Rome Georgian. As Capt. A. B. S. Mosely has been appoint ed vice consul to Singapore, Mrs. Mosely will accompany him, which made it nec essary to dispose of her paper. Frail for Charity. The good people of Marshallvilte have filled a large refrigerator—G72 crates—with the famous Elberta peaches to be sold in New York for the benefit of the friendless children who are energetically seen after by the Rev. W. K. Mumford of Macon. The fruit Is donated by the fruit growers of Marshallville. refrigerated by the Ar mour Company free of charges and landed in New* York without charges by the Cen tral Railroad and its connections and sold by A. F. Young & Cos. without commis sion. The car left Wednesday afternoon at 5 o’clock full placarded with the above intents. Mr. Mumford hopes to realize SI,OOO for his orphans from this car. A Victim of Snnutroke. E. M. Bakfr of Albany was the victim of sunstroke Thursday and is in a criti cal condition. After reluming from a trip into the country he seemed to be in the best of health and spirits, but just as he reached the entrance to the steps that lead up to his office, he reeled and fell to the pavement. Several people were stand ing near enough to see him fall, nnd they rushed to him at once. Mr. Baker came to Albany from Norfolk, Vh„ about two monlhs ago, and hns made many friends. This is the first case of sunstroke that has occurred in Albany in many year* and it is thought that Mr. Baker's having recently come from a cooler cli mate had something to do with his hav ing been stricken. • Gold Mining in Georgia. Dahlonega Nugget: We have resided in Dahlonega all our life, and now 45 years old. and never saw as much activity in mining going on before in Lumpkin coun ty. Really, business of all kinds is grow ing. and the population of Dahlonega is rapidly increasing and the place has now become the center of attraction to people in all parts of the country. We were shown last Saturday a nugget of gold found on the Baggs Branch property some day* ago by "Dug" Bryson. It was dis covered on an old gravel pile and weighs twenty-two grains. It is gold from a rich vein which has never been discovered yet. They keep on prospecting, and some of these days they will strike it, and from the large amount of rich deposit mining already done, the vein w’hich feeds the same is certainly very rich and the owner will have a big bonanza. FLORIDA Tempn Democrats will have a grand ratification meeting on the night of the 2*th Inal., at which Florida's next Gov ernor, Judge W. S. Jennings, will tspeok. The Democrats of other adjoining coun ties will be Invited to Join in the Jollifica tion. A Political Goat. There Is in the Martin precinct of Marlon county a wonderful billy goat that has been recently named Matthew Stan ley Quay, because he really understands 1 how to "shake the pium tree." This plum I tree shaker carries wih him over a hun ! fired goats, and will back off and butt plum trees with so much force that none | are left. ! linin* Aronnil Orland?. The recent heavy rains have interfered j to some extent with the operations of the turpentine men in that portion of the state around Orlando. There is much water in the flat country, and ponds and streams are bank full. Roads have been washed and cut by the rush of water in many in stances, and road workers are kept busy in repairing damages. Series of flnll Games. Fernandina Mirror: T. C. Borden of the Fernandina baseball team went over to Jacksonville last Saturday and arranged a series of live game* to be played for SI,OOO to the winning team. The check was forwarded to R. C. Cooley, who will be stakeholder. Two games will be played at Jacksonville and two at Fernandina; the other will be played at some other city, to be hereafter agreed upon. Those Water Hyacinths. Palatka Advertiser: Those living across the river and are frequent shoppers in Palatka complain constantly and vigorous ly about the annoyance they are com pelled to suffer on account of the hya cinths that hug the city wharves so Com pactly they cannot land. It not infre quently happens that they have to tie up at least half mile beyond their accustomed place of disembarkation because of this pestiferous aquatic nuisance. Something should be done, and that quickly. Don't Want Stockton. At a meeting held in Gainesville Monday of those favoring the state capital to that place the following resolution was intro duced by Marcus Endel nnd adopted unanimously: "Resolved, That the Hon. W. N. Sheats be requested to revoke the appointment of Hon. John C. Stockton as his appointee on the State Executive Com mittee, and that he i* hereby requested to appoint as member of said committee a Dcmorat of Alachua county, who is in hearty accord with the majority of oitr people on the capital removal question. We hold that the appointment of a Jack sonville resident is a reflection upon the intelligence and loyalty of our people, and such action on his part is inimical to the interests of Alachua county. Seminole* of Florida. Lake WoTth News: A concerted attempt is being made to ascertain the actual number of Seminole Indians in Florida. There are but three tribes of this once powerful race left. In Brevard county the "Cow Creek" band ranges over the southern part of the county, centering near Fort Drum, by w hich name the tribe is sometimes known. The Miami hand ranges through the eastern part of the Everglades, in Dade county, be tween Fort Lauderdale nnd Miami, and the third remnant, known ns the "Big Cypress" or "Chakoliskee" bank pursues its chosen way along the western border of the Everglades, from Lake Okeecho bee to Chakoliskee bay. At the last ses sion of the Legislature large tracts of land were erane<l for the use of their band, and Congress has been asked to endorse this action by granting lands in perpetuity. In view of these facts J. O. Fries of Orlando and Archibald Hendry of Fort Pierce have been appointed as a commission to take census of the three bands, in order to arrive at a just set tlement of the entire matter touching their rights. Horse Jumped Into the Sen. Th* rescue of a valuable horse that in a moment of fright jumped over the sea wall into the river was a problem that had to be solved in a hurry at St. Augus tine Thursday afternoon. Abe Sanders, who drives one of the double teams of the Transfer Company, had gone in the office about 2 o’clock to report. Whi'e he was in the office his team started down the street. So many people shouted for the team to stop that the horses became frightened and ran away. Just before reaching the seawall the team parted from the carriage. At the seawall a high spirited and valuable mare cleared it an I plunged into the river nearly ten feet below’. Its partner remained on terra flrmn. The mare was in about four feet of water. U did not attempt to move, and looked piteously at the crowd on the seawall. How to rescue the animal was a problem in which scores of people ad vanced theories. It was finally decided to lasso the mare, put two good oarsmen In a strong boat, with another man to hoi 1 the halter, and attempt to swim the ani mal down the river three-quarter* of a mile and land on the bank north of the fort. The feat was finally put into execu tion. and accomplished after much hard work. The mare was not seriously in jured. ENTERPRISE AT COLQI ITT. Snake Squeezed One Chicken mul Tried lo Swnllow Another. Colquitt, Ga.. July 20.-Messrs. Whitt man & Stutts, two enterprising gentlemen, are now erecting a candy at this point; they expect to begin operations in a few days. Mr. W. G.. Tyson, a business man of Oconee, Ga., has purchased property here and will, in the near future, open up an extensive line of general merchandise. He is a member of the firm of Tyson & Cos. of Oconee. A few nights ago Mr. L. A. Bolton, a farmer who resides near this place, heard his chickens cackling, and. going to in vestigate. discovered a large "white-oak" snake. The snake had entered his fowl house, and, seizing a large hen in his coil, caught another half-grown one in his mouth and was attempting to swallow’ it. He had succeeded in swallowing the chicken head foremost to its wings, when Mr. Bolton struck him. He turned it loose, but still held the one in his coil, squeez ing it to death before lie was killed. The chicken that he attempted lo swallow es caped and is now all light. A grand barbecue and basket picnic will be given here on Friday, Aug. 3. Excur sions will be run from all neighboring points. Many speakers will Interest the crowd, together with bas&l’all and other interesting games, a day of general en joyment 1* anticipated. Killed by Lightning. Dubuque, la..

Jacksonville, Fla., July 20.—There will be a brisk contest to secure the street railway franchises here after all. When the Atlantic, Valdosta and Western Rail read withdrew their offer some time ago, it was thought that the Plant System stood an excellent chance to get the fran chise, as the offers made by the home company, headed by "W. F. Coachman and others, were not as good as the Plant Company. But now there is "another Richmond in the field," and the fight promises to 1> close end exciting. Anew company, head ed by Judge VY. B. Owen, one of the city's most progressive, citizens, and a man of means, has made many very liberal offers to the city. This company agrees to equip the lines with the newest and most improved cars, and to run a ten-minute schedule (the present being a fifteen minute cue). It will give the city 5 per cent, of its gross receipts from the start, and allow the city to purchase its plant at the expiration of five years. It also agrees to give the city, at the expiration of the five years one-fourth of Its entire stock, or to continue the 5 per cent, consideration, allow ing the city to choose between the three, propositions. It also agrees to bear all the expenses of any legal litigation, should any be brought by the Jacksonville Street Railway Company, and will pur chase the plant of the latter at an arbi tration value. This company also agrees to sell to the school children thirty tickets for 90 cents, being a three-cent fare for them. It also agrees from 5 to 7 a. m., and from 5 p. m. to 7 p. m.. to carry laboring men on tick ets purchased for 3 cents, which will be sold at the same rate as the school chil dren's, viz . thirty for 90 cents. They bind themselves to carry all persons on tickets purchased at a not greater rate than twenty-five for sl. thus practically giving a four-cent rate to the public. Many other provisions are inserted guarding the city’s interests. The clause giving the city the privilege of purchas ing the plant at the end of five years, is the closest proposition to municipal owner ship that has yet been offered. MANCHU AND CHINESE. S Tle Racial Division In It* Relation to Contemporary Event*. Letter in New York Sun. If it be true, as is now generally be lieved, thnt the foreign ministers have been murdered at Pekin, it will not be the first time that the Chinese have been guilty of such outrages. In fact, the Manchu dynasty, of which the Emperor Kwangsu is the present representative, owes its origin in part to the murder of an ambassador in the early part of the seventeenth century. In 1618 Noorhachu, Prince of the Man chu tribe of Tartars, declared war against Waulch of the Ming dynasty, then Emperor of China. He issued a proc lamation known in Chinese history as "the proclamation of the Seven Hares,” because it contains seven reason.* for his hostility, one of which was that the Chi nese had murdered his ambassador. "For these reasons." said Noorhachu. "I hate with all intense hatred and now’ make war on you." In the course of this war Noorhachu captured Li-on-Yang, the cap itol of the Chinese province of Li-on-ting. The garrison was massacred io a man. and the people of the lowji were required to shave their heads In token of submis sion to- their conqueror. Boulger. in his history of China, says: "This is the first historical reference to a practice that is now universal in Chino, and that has become what might be called a national characteristic. The badge of of conquest has changed to n mark of na tional pride, bm it is strange to find that the Chinese themselves, and the most patient Inquirers among sinologues are unable to say what was the origin of the pigtail. They cannot tell us whether shav ing the head was ho national custom of the Manchus, or whether Noorhachu only conceived the happy idea of distinguish ing those w’ho surrendered to his power among the countless millions of the long haired people of China. All that can be said of the origin of the pigtail is that it was first enforced :is a badge of subjuga tion by the Manchus tit the siege of Li on-Yang, and that thenceforward, until the whole of China was conquered, it w’us made the one condition of immunity from massacre." No rhaebu kept tip a successful war .against China until his death in 1626. His son and successor, TaPscng, prosecuted the war w th v gor. and a f ter overrunn ng the gre ter part of the provinces of Shan ty and Pechihli, was about to at ack the city of Pekin, when ho di*d in 1613. He was succeeded by his son Cbuntche. dur ing whose minority Prince D~ugun, broth er of Tei s ng. ae ed as regent. Under Ms administration Pi k n was captured, and the young Krnp ror was inaugurat ed in that f i y with great pomp and c r emony The capture of Pekin w’as fol -1 w and by the subjugation of the southern provinces, and the last Ming Emperor, Feu Wang, put an end to himself and his dynasty by suicide at Nankin. The Manchus of that day. though com paratively Insignificant in numbers, were not only bettor soldiers but shrewder n than the Ch'nose. Thev owed t.-,elr triumph as much to their success in bribing and corrupting the Chines** gen e als as to their su/urlori y in arms. When a rebel chief brought 100,9 0 of Ills fol lowers* to the Manchu standard. Tahsong aid to him: "No thought of r* grot j-hould enter your Iv art at passing into my ser vice With the help of (Sol, I hop* t> pn serve for us all a great empire, and if I succeed there are no h nors or ri he* to w hich y< u cannot look forward if you Ferve me faithfully." Such promts s at tracted many adventurers. At the same time, Tait o-g rpired no jains to make himself pc pillar in the terrl ories his arm ies overran. He posed as the friend of the people, established schools in which Chi nese was taught; instituted civil service examinations. i:nd b* stcwvd mllita y art ! civic dignities on the natves who at ach ed themselves to his fortunes. In addi t on to ell this he profess and h mself ale -1 evvr in the doctrines of Confucius, and even his encmi s were obliged to admit that his practice conformed much more • o the teachings of thfir great sage than that cf th- Ming Emperor. For nearly Xour hundred years the Manchu dynay lias maintained itself on the throne of China. During that time the two races, the Man hus and the Ch nese, have remained disiir.c . The Manchus as the conquering race have asserted and maintained a cer tain superiority over the Chinese. The principal cities are garrisoned by Manchu troops, in which no Chinaman is allowed to Serve. Rear Admiral lAtrd Charles Bertsford, who inspected the Chinese armies in 1&98 says: "The military forces are divided, some are Manchu and some are Chinese. The Manchu forces are quite exclusive, no Chinese serving in their ranks, but the Chinese armies have some Manchus among them. The armies in the north and about Pekin are nearly all commanded by Manchu princes. The Man chu armies are supposed to be 1700UO strong, but there is no Manchu army ef li.'ient either in drill, discipline or organ ization throughout the Empire.” Eord Beresford declares that the best armed, best-drilled and besl-disciplined army that he saw in China was that of Gen. Yuan Shi Kei, a Chinaman com manding Chinese troops. Reports from China says that this General is inclined to co-operate with Li Hung Chang and the southern viceroys in maintaining peaceful relations with foreign nations, and in the preservation of order and the protection ot foreigners in China. Li Hung Chang is also a Chinaman. On the other hand, Prince Tuan, we know, is a Manchu, and it may be owing to the fact that, as Lord Beresford says, nearly ail the armies around Pekin are commanded by Manchu princes, that the government has found it impossible to usq these Manchu forces for the purpose of putting down the Boxers and protecting the foreigners in Pekin. it may be that these Manchu princes are the Bourbons of China. They have ruled over China so long that they have become impatient of any interference from the outside world. The recent efforts of Eu ropean nations to secure parts of the ter ritory of China have alarmed them for the security of the empire, and they may have determined that they might as well light for it now as allow it to be taken away from them piecemeal. In this view of the ease the Boxers with their religious and anti-foreign fanaticism may appear to them us allies that should be welcomed and utilized. If Prince Tuan and his party have determined to set aside the present Emperor and place the Prince's son upon the throne, he may have decided that the shortest and surest way to ac complish this object is to start a revolu tion bused upon, the principle of China for the Chinese and extermination for the foreigners. The evident disinclination of Li Hung Chang to obey the frequent and pressing summons that have been sent him to come to Pekin seems lo corroborate the sup position that the controlling powers there are hostile to the outside world. It has been chiefly through his influence that the southern provinces of China have up to this time remained quiet. To get him away from Canton is in the first place to release the insurrectionary spirit in that district, and in the second to break up the conneciion that he has formed with the other viceroys in the interest of peace and order. Once in Pekin he wdli be at the mercy of the ruling party there, and no man knows better than Li Hung Chang what that means. He must either make common cause with them or pay Hie panaky with his life. The men who have not hesitate-d to brave the vengeance of the civilized world by the murder of its representatives will speedily dispose of Li Hung Chang if he dares raise his voice against what they have determined iilKjn. Li Hung Chang has been called the Bismarck of China. Bismarck's life sur vived his influence, but Li Hung Chang may lost both if he goes to Pekin. Washington, July 17. J. S. T. Why the Onion ‘‘Smells” So, From Chambers' Journal. It is interesting to make inquiry into the cause of this unfortunate quality of the onion. It is simply due o the pres ence in some quantity of another mineral matter in the bulb—sulphur. It is this sulphur that gives the onion its germ killing property and makes the bulb sa very useful a medical agent at all times, but especially in the spring, which used to be—ar.d still is in many places—the season for taking brimstone and treacle in o d-fashioned houses, befora sulphur tab'ets came into vogue. Now. sulphur when united to hydrogen, one of the gases of water, forms sulphur etted hyd. ogen, ard then, becomes a foul sir.ellicg, well-nigh a fetid compound. Th‘ onion, teing so juicy, has a very large percentage of water in its tissues, and this, combining with the sulphur, iorms the strongly scented and offensive subs ance called sulnhurot of allyle. which is found in all the alliums This sulphured of allyle mingles more espec itl'y "l h the volatile or aromatic oil of the onlcn; it is indrntical with (he mal ororart 1 rineirle found in asafoetida. which is almost tlr> symbol of all smells that are nasty. The horse-radish, so much I ked with roast heef for its keen ' and hi i K property, nnd the ordinary mustard of our cables both owe their strongly stimulative propedtrs to this sime rulphuret of allyle, which gives them heat and acridity, hut not an offen sive smell, owing to the different arrange ment of the atoms in their volatile oils This brings us to a most curious fact in nature, that strangely, yet most certainly, constructs all vegetable vola tile oils in exactly the same way—com poses them all, whether they are the aro matic essences of cloves, orang s, lemons c nnarron thyme rose, verbena, turpen itne or onion, of .xactly the same pro portions, which are 8514 of carbon to IH4 of hydrogen, and ob'tans all the vast seem- Irg div rallies tha* o r nos'rils detect in their srent simply l>v a different arrange ment of the atoms in each v.getable oil. Oxygen alters some of these hydrocar bons, sulphur others. In n Receiver's Hnnila. Chicago.

REVIEW OF THE MARKETS. CONDITION OF GENERAL TRADE DIHIXG THE PAST WEEK. The Showing in All Commercial Lines Regarded ns Satisfactory. Cotton Fa t a res Again Off, and the Unsettled Conditions Slakes the Outcome Uncertain—Rosins Strong nnd Advancing—Spirits Turpentine Apparently W'rnk—Local and Tele graphic Markets. Mcrnirg News Office, July 20. The week in commercial circles has been a satisfactory one in nearly all branches of trade. Asa general thing the approach of the busy crop moving sea son is accompanied by a dullness in the wholesale markets, but this does not seem to be the case this year, or at least, there Is little complaint from any quarter. The financial showing continues to be good from every point of view. Much interest was directed to the cot ton market during the w-eek. Being in fluenced by different conditions the range was broad, and prices swung up and down, without much warning to traders. In some quarters the trade have quietly decided to await a more settled condition of affairs, as an evidence of which much of the business in the futures market in New Y'ork to-day was withdrawals on bo h sid, s The two great influences which are affecting the movement of prices most at present, the disquietude in China and the condition of the cotton crop, are far frem being settled one way or the other, which is cause for hesitancy on the part of traders. Prices dropped yesterday and again to-day, the closing being quiet and steady, v i h prices net unchanged to 8 points lower. Attention is being directed to the condi tion of the sea island crop. It is said “mains,” or the cotton raised on the mainland, is not in the best condition, and that the yield will not be up to what was expected at the opening of the sea son. In South Carolina the crop is said to have suffered. The damage was not so great in Florida, however. On the islands the crop is reported to be in prime con dition, and the outlook good for an abun dant yield. A spirited demand during the early days of the week and a continued upward tendency were the features of the naval stores market. The advance in rosins has been well maintained, and promises to hold against any ordinary unfavorable tendency. With turpentine, however, the upward tendency came to a direct halt to-day, when the market was posted "Nothing doing." The price reached 4t% cents at one time, with the indications favorable for its maintenance, but condi tions have since combined to bring a check in the demand. The trade attributes the slack in the demand to the fact that'factors have been making deliveries quite freely during the week, which has tended to help buyers out considerably. In fact, it is stated that what they have received has about supplied their demands, without necessi tating their coming into the market for anything. This being the case the nat ural tendency was for the market to drag, which i: has not failed to do. It is rough ly estimated that about half of the de liveries to be made this month, which are said to be about 30,000 C3sks. have already been made. The Jacksonville factors who sold short in this market are understood to have covered to a considerable extent during the week, and this also lessons the demand. Futures are sold for Savannah delivery only, which necessitates the Jack sonville factors disposing, of their stuff there and buying in this market to cover contracts. This they do in preference to shipping stuff from there here. Whether the price is to decline or to rally and continue upward is a matter of great interest to the trade everywhere just now. Factors say they believe the price will go higher. From the buyers standpoint, however, it has reached the limit, and will henceforth drop. It seems there is not to be any impaediate increase in the receipts, and if this be true, and is coupled with a reasonably fair demand, the price will hold its own, even if it does not go higher. Rosins have been firm at the advance throughout the week. Prices settled down yesterday at the outside prices, and the good demand is very encouraging to the trade. Recessions are not in sight in this market. The cotton market closed quiet and un changed to-day. The week did not bring any special changes in the market. The week's receipts were 4,943, and the ex ports 7,955. The receipts to-day were 614, against 1 last year. The stock to-day is 10,200 uplands, and 4,160 sea islands. The trade continues to direct much attention to crop reports, but the fact the reports are greatly mixed, coming from various seclions of the state, makes it next to im possible to reconcile them so as to arrive at anything like a correct idea of condi tions, COTTON.

New Y’ork, July 20.—Interest in the cot ton market showed abatement to-day and a large portion of the business done rep resented withdrawals by operators from each side. The course of pendulations was too erratic to afford bulls or bears mark ed advantage and increased the timidity in outside speculative circles caused by the sensational political news from China. The opening was easy with first sales showing a drop of 6 to 11 points. The weakness did not culminate until August had fallen to 9.07 c and January B.loc. The South, the West, the foreign element and' the room trade all sold freely on the slump, traders giving special attention to the August option. The cables received just after our opening conveyed the im pression that longs* in Europe were dis trustful and inclined to unload as a mat ter of precaution. But with startling rapidity sentiment in the Liverpool mar ket swung completely around near the close and badly frightened shorts here. Prices advanced with a rush, August dlimbing to 9.27 c and January to 8.15 c be fore a breathing spell was taken. Before midday a partial relapse set in. Rumors gained circulation to the effect that in fluential European bulls had formed a strong clique to bulge the summer months. This story lacked confirmation, but kept shorts on the uneasy seat the greater part of the session. The market closed quiet and steady, with prices net unchanged to 8 points lower.

Futures 3-64:1 lower for the t near and 2-64 to 3-64d down on far months. This market opened weak on early decline in Liverpool of 7-64 to 8-64d, old crop, and 2-64 to 3-64d new crops, but reached some on covering of sales local and Southern account. With continued favorable weather over the belt the out look 4s discouraging to bulls at present prices, as the statistical strength appears to be offset by the poor condition of the dry goods market. However, if any change in favorable condition the mar ket is in a position to advance rapluiy. New Tork. July 20.—Hubbard Bro. * Cos. say: Liverpool continues to fluetuate wildly on the old crop positions without Increasing the demand from spinners in Lancashire. Opening at a small advance prices there quickly advanced, closing steady at three points decline on the near and one point decline on the distant months. Our market followed a some what similar course, August being pressed for eale during the first hour and then sharply Influencing the new crop de liveries. Trading Is on • limited scale, with sharp changes, which render . execution o: orders exceedingly ' * Crop advices are very favorable T' weather apparently being what the needs to recover from its low oonat"® 9 on July 1.

SPIRITS TURPENTINE—WhiIe the turpentine market during most of the week was in strong position, with the tendency decidedly upward, the close brought a change, which is anything but encouraging for the trade.
