Y'?ar 139 Will Haw a Better Trade
Ending Than Any Year in
NEW YORK, Dec. S.-R. G. Pun &
Co.'s weekly rvie;v of trade tomorrow
The approach of a new year usually
brings so much hetiranry in business
that the small shrinkage this year is
surprising. Probibly never before have
the productive forces of th country
been so largely covered by contracts
at this date, irsurir.g empionent and
pmfi; far into the coming year.
This results, not from any mere
speculative excitement, but from actual
demands for consumption running fnr
beyond the producing capacity here
after and pushing it to remarkable ex
pariHion. Th.- increase in our foreign trade has
been insignificant compared wtth the
increase of 24 billion in payments
through the clearing houww. For the
week the payments have tx-en 20.3 per
tvrt larger than list year and 38.1 per
cent larger than in 1S92.
The failures for the wef-k have been

the last year, and 33 In Canada, affainst

the grade of vie admiral hi the inter

that this Is the simplest solution of the
whole Simpson -Schley controversy,
and it is exprcted that Senator Wel

two vice admirals without specifying
mmtf. The president very frank'.y
s.iid that if such a bill became a law.
1,.- would promptly nominate both
Sampson and Schley in the order
named. This arringfjmem, both the

will meet the approval of a ma

That is one of the sublime-it lines in all
literature. It ii the final definition of love
by the world's greatest reader of the huinaii
mind. Shake.;;eare. Nearly all women
who truly love, love in this f.ublime way
Men se ldom do.
Woman's most stlo'ious endowment is
the power to awaken and hold the- pup
and honest love of a worthy man. When
she loses it and still loves on, no one in
the wide world can know the heart atrony
she endures The woman who suffers
from weakness and derangement of her
pecial womanly organism soon loses the
power to sway the heart of a man. Her
general health suffers and she loses ln-r
good looks, her attractiveness, h-r amia
bility and ber power and prebtie as a
woman. Dr. R V. 1'ierce, of Buffalo. N Y.,
with the assistance of his staff of able phy
sicians, has prescribed for many thousands
of women. He has devised a perfect and
scientific remedy for women's ailments. It
is known as Dr I'ii-rce's Favorite Prescrip
tion. It is a positive specific for all weak
nesses, disases, disorders, displacements,
irregularities, and debilitating drains pe

strengthens and heals. Medicine dealers
sell it, and no honest dealer will advise
you to accept a substitute that he may
