FROST 19 BRAZIL.
, Men Past Slaty in Danger.
Mor than half of mankind over 60
yeara of age suffer from kidney and dis
orders, usually enlargement of prostate
glands. This is both painful and dan
gerous, and Foley'a Kidney Cure ahould
be taken at the first sign of danger, as
it corrects irregularities and naa cured
many old men of this disease. Mr. Rod
ney Burnett, Eockport, Mo., writes i "I
suffered with enlarged . prostate gland
and kidney trouble for years and after
taking two bottles of Foley's Kidney
Cure I fell better than I have for 20
years, although I am now 91 years old."

News Affects Coffee Exchange and Large
Volumn of Business Done.
NEW YORK. August 28. New of
frost in the coffee-growing districts of
Brazil, woke up the local market yester
day, and the trade had the unusual
spectacle . of seeing room traders rush
about the floor and transact the largest
volume of business that has been done
Oa the exchange in any one day this
year. Sales amrregated ro8,50 bags be
tween the call at 11 o'clock, and the
close at 3.
Shorts were frightened early In the
duy, and rushed pell mell for the nearest
cover. The situation developed the fact
'one that has long been suspected
among traders here that Europe is
short a big line of September coffee in
the local market There was frenzied
switching by firm interests who wanted
to get rid of their September holdings,
and Europe took all it could get, at
prices which were distinctly to its ad
vantage, Dealings in September alone
mounted to 113.500 bags, including the
switches, a record which would have
been considered a big total day's busi
ness on any previous during the past
Four of the five states of Brasil
reported frost. This news came in pri
vate cables to exchange members, but
it did not take it long to get abont the
floor and start real action. Prices
which were a little stronger anyway;
on account of better news from Europe,
took a sudden jump and closed IS to 25
points above the last figures for
Wednesday. : ' .
Frost in Brazil is critical at this par
ticular time. The crop is in a precari
ous condition, and the frost, if at all
severe, will retard, if not entirely blight
the flowering. New wood On the old
trees is necessary to the growing of
the new crop, and if this is damaged
by frost' just now, the yield is bound
to be greatly restricted. This news is
joyfully received by the friends of va
lorization. The stock of 8,000,000 bags,
which the syndicate is holding in the
various ports of the world, was just
begining to worry these gentlemen, and
has kept the world's markets dull for
several mouths. This is the first decis
ive news received which has any bearing
on the ultimate results of this gigantic
speculation in nature.:
Three days ago the Wall Street specu
lators were attempting in a mild sort
of a way to liquidate their holdings
snd get , away from the dullness In
coffee circles. Yesterday they rushed
back to the board and were willing buy
ers of December. March and May, bid
ding up the .prices on these positions
well over the six-cent mark. - . " f-.
