Reports From Various Sections of

Trade Is Brisk.
HARVESTING IN PROGRESS
Ketmlts Are Much Better Than
Farmer Had Expected
Steel and Iron Trade
New York, July 29. The advice
received this week from special agent
of the International Mercantile Agency
at the leading trade centers of the
country are In the main satisfactory,
The spirit of optimism Is growing and
confidence In a good fall and winter
business Increases from week to week.
Current activity in the different in-
dustrlul lines Is not great, but It is
better than it was a year ago with
tne very wnoiesome innuenee or a
faith In better things. A decided re
action has occurred in the movement
of stocks, but this Is not due to any
material change In business prospects.
There has been good growing weath
er for the crops which are approach
ing harvest under continued Improved
conditions. In the spring wheat sec
tions of the northwest some rust has
been discovered which will reduce the
yield. Harvesting Is In progress In
nearly all of the leading winter wheat
states, and the results are better than
farmers thought they would be two
weeks ago. It Is beginning to be be
lieved though, that the total yield will
leave a small exportable surplus and
that the price of wheat and flour dur
lng the next 12 months wll be high.
The speculative months are now at
the top prices for this movement, hav
ing been helped by a war scare which
produced an opposite effect on stocks.
The returns on wheat In the southwest
have stimulated business in that part
of the country. Collections In the
St. Louis district have far exceeded
those of last year. Fall orders being
received are beyond expectations.
Boots and shoes have been in es
petially good demand, though cloth
ing Is slow. Dallas reports bright
trade prospects. The first symptoms
of discouragement that has been shown
at Kansas City is apparent this week
in reports of a slack condition of trade
In most lines. ' Chicago retailers are
said to be more pessimistic than they
ought to be In view of actual trade
there, even with advance orders for
clothing, men's furnishings, shoes and
wearing apparel quite satisfactory. In
dianapolis indicates some improve
ment In dry goods and shoes, though
with hardware behind last year.
The most gratifying trade state
ments of all are those from Pitta-
burg. This is due to the implement
that has come about in the iron and
steel trade. The tone in this basic
trade is certainly much better than it
has been for a year and a sharp re
vival in it is not Improbable after

AT THE ST. LOUIS HOTEL.
An Iowa man who la at the world's
fair writes home to a friend and says
In part:: ,
I am comfortably situated In the
Thlnslde Inn, which is a pleasant little
tavern about as big as Missouri val
ley. It Is built of lath, scantling, jute
bagging, wall paper and paint and is-
very substantial. A heavy man can
climb all over It. I saw three bell
boys carrying the bill for a night's
lodging up to the fourth floor just now
and the beams did not sag much. The
management Is careful though. It
puts all new guests on the ground floor.
and after they have paid their bills for
the first day they put them on the sec
ond floor. By the time a man has paid
his bill for two days he is light enough
to go up on the third floor with safety.
When he has stayed a week they have
to put weights In his pockets to keep
htm from shooting up through the

the clerk he turned me upside down
and shook me. Then he counted what
fell out of my pockets, told me to reg
ister, and handed me a blue ticket and
a bell boy.
"You have enough money for four
days, he said. "Go to the cashier and
settle." '-: . '
My room is No. 6415, three blocks
from the public square and a mile
south of the buffet. When I got my
receipts and my bell boy I sat down
and waited an hour for- a streetcar.
But they told me there wasn't a line
In the whole place not even a hack
line. I had to walk all the way to my
room wore out two bell boys on the
way, but there's plenty more. There
are more bell boys than there are
guests at the Inn. They use 'em for
change. When you give the clerk $5
for your room he hands you back 12
and a bell boy.
My room is a little far away for
meals, but I make is nicely. I start
for supper at 9 a. m. and stop for a
lunch on the way with a friend I know
In room 2507. But a friend of mine
who lives In room 7640 is up against It.
He got two days behind with his meals

end of the hotel. Finally he food
