New York, June 10. Reports to the
International Mercantile Agency from
special correspondents at trade centers
throughout the country Indicate some
Improvement In general business dur-
durlng the last week. This has been
noteworthy in the south and southwest
where excellent salea have brought
me volume or business ud to a
better distribution. Hats and caps are
active but boot and shoes In certain
sections have not done a well as usu
al. The St Louts district report in
creased prosperity in moat linos of
trade owing to the inrush of exposi
tion visitors. Sales meet expectations
and merchants 'in the immediate vi
cinity expect even better results as the
attendance becomes heavier. Increased
travel to SU Louis Is also Increasing
business in contingent territory. Job
bers in many sections report improved
business although country merchants
in some Instances have been prevented
from visiting trade centers owing to
increased business at, home since far
mers have ceased planting.
Retail trade Is strong, and if fall
business turns out as well as advices
now indicate the total for the year to
September first, will average fully as
much as that reported the correspond
ing period of 1903. Labor difficulties
on the great lakes appear to be near In g
solution, with th prospect that most
of the congestion In trnfflo will be re
lieved within a fortnight or so. At
Milwaukee the strike has already been
broken, and negotiations at other
point are progressing satisfactorily.
The tie up has been very disastrous
and losses sustained aggregate a very
much larger sum than was looked for
when the disturbance began.
Iron la still stagnant, most branch
of the industry being virtually at a
standstill The only exception are
structural and raw pipe, where a large
business is reported, Half the merch
ant furnaces in the Pittsburg district
are likely to be out of blast by July
1, which will materially lessen coke
production. The outlook is for dull
trade during the summer. Crop have,
made excellent progress owing to the
prevalence of more seasonable weath
er in many sections of the southwest
Corn has been to an extent retarded
by too much moisture, but the prevent
acreage ranks probably as the largest
ever planted so that the actual harvest
may exceed expectations.
Business throughout New England
is still depresse by unsettled condi
tions in manufacturlng.due to the shut
down of the cotton mills. Wool prices
are uncertain and mills run on orders
only. Some activity is reported In
leather goods, but the tendency every
where manifested is to "Go slow.'

According to a certain young lady
who does not live many miles from
the' local high school, the most polite
man In Washington state lives, or used
live, a short distance from Sso-
qualmie falls. She enly met him once,
the meeting ajd his great cour
tesy are indelibly impressed on her
mind. Here is why he has made such
Impression upon her, and in her
"It is about thret years ago since I
my polite man. A party of us
took a trip to Snoqualmle and camped
there for some time. One day we all
went on an exploration tour. and. to
show what an excellent explorer I was,
went on ahead of all the rest. It
was just about the time I was con
gratulating myself that I eclipsed
everybody else as a daring person that
realized I was hopelessly lost and
that the rest of the party were prob
ably miles away and hunting franti
cally for me.
"Of course, in my endeavors to locate
myself I lost my head completely, and
went in exactly the wrong direction.
I must have wandered for three or
four hours, becoming more and more
frightened each minute. My clothes
were torn, I was physically a wreck.
and I confess that I had wept until
further tears were almost impossible.
"Then I heard a sound of chopping.
Nervous and unstrung as I was, I
confess that the sound frightened me
more than anything else. Chopping
meant a man. But I did not want to
meet any strange man then; I was
too hopelessly unstrung. However,
there was nothing else to do but risk
it, and cautiously I approached the
sounds of busy humanity and peeked
through the trees. It was really a
nice, harmless looking man. He was
working vigorously ,and, as it was a
hot day and he probably thought that
there was no one within twenty miles
of him, he wore low shoes, no socks
and his trousers were rolled up half
way to his knees. When I saw what
a really nice aDDearln man he WAl
my courage came back to me with a
rush and I gave one wild spurt through
the underbrush and breathlessly in
formed him that I was lost, hungry.
and as frightened as a poor Seattle
girl could ever be. Couldn't he tell
me in what direction to go?
When the man heard the snapping
twigs he looked up. When he saw a
very much dilapidated woman with a
tear-stained face talking madly to him
he dropped his ax and simply bolted
for the little cabin that stood in the
clearing, while I well, I simply sat
right down on a log and wept. Surely
I was lost for good and all when the
only man in miles ran when he saw
me. I could not be expected to get
assistance from a man wha ran from
a small, weak woman.
"But I had misjudged my woodchop-
per. He had not meant to run away;
he had only Intended to be polite, for
in a very few minutes he had emerged
from his cabin and was pointing out
my path and offering to escort me to
my party. He had gone into his cabin
to don a pair of socks before holding
any conversation whatever with a
lady." Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
