WIDEI6 TRADE IN WEST.
Improved Export Demand for Amer-
ican Products, Notably Wheat.
BETTER INDUSTRIAL OUTLOOK.
New York, Sept. 10.—Brailstreet's
says: Trade developments tor the
week have been mainly favorable, and
the improvement in general distribu-
tive business in the latter part of Au-
gust has gathered force in the lirst
week of September. Leading features
have bepn the widening fall trade re-
ported at all points west, south and
on the Pacific coast, some improve-
ment in the jobbing demand at the
east, with southern buying a marked
feature; rather better reports from the
two great staple erops of the west and
f south, wheat and cotton; improved ex-
* port demand for American products,
notably wheat, iron and steel, and cot-
ton. and unvarying good returns by
the transportation industries of the
Bank clearings, though broken by
holidays in the first week in September,
is larger than the total for the prece-
The industrial outlook has been im-
proved by settlement of the tin plate
scale, tin- general resumption of opera-
tions in the glasfc industry, the pro-
dieted satisfactory settlement of the
remaining iron and steel wage scales,
and the possibility that recent large
sales of print cloths will avert a resort
to wage reductions in the New England
cotton industry. The anthracite coal
trade outlook, however, is clouded by
the prediction that 140,0C0 men will
strike this week.
The iron and steel trade continued
positively cheerful in tone, and a lai-ge
business has been and is now being
booked. No important gains in prices
are reported. Demand is expanding
however—10.000 tons of southern pig
being shipped this week, and orders
for twice as much are reported booked.
Iron production showed a further
heavy decline in August but stocks

ports for the week aggregate 3,102,271
bushels, against 3,717.490 last week, 4',-

London. Sept. 11.—There is no doubt
that almost any fairly palatable pre-
scription will be swallowed by the
British cabinet, and the Associated
l'ress learns from a well informed
quarter that just as soon as the Chi-
nese government appoints tolerable
commissioners, with serious instruc-
tions, they will find Great Britain
ready to respond and aid in utilizing
what Mr. l!ockhill, special commission-
er of the United States government to
investigate and report on conditions in
China, recently termed the "beautiful
occasion to settle for all time the status
of foreigners in China."
Bar Harbor, Me., Sept 8.—There
tvas a splendid naval display here
when five British warships steamed
into the inner harbor and fired a na-
tional salute which was returned by
the I'nited States ship New York. The
.British ships were II. M. S. Crescent,
flying the Hag of Vice Admiral Med-
ford, the Psyche. Tribune, Indcfatible
and the torpedo boat destroyer Quail.
Washington I.cads all.
London. Sept. 11.—Washington, it is
now conceded, is for the moment the
center of diplomatic activity; and news
news from there is eagerly scanned.
v.nd the latest Associated l'ress exposi-
tion of the policy of the I'nited States
in the matter is welcomed as likely to
be acceptable and as finally disposing
of the unfounded suspicion that the
Russian scheme was promulgated with
the approval of the l uited States ad-
Forest Fires Continue.
Buffalo, Wyo., Sept. 8.— I. intense
forest tires are. raging on two sides of
this city. A new fire has broken out
near the north fork of Powder river,
and the other tires are increasing.
Thirty-six sections of fine timber have
been destroyed by fire southwest of
here, between the two branches of Ten
Sleep. Last week the fire was con-
hidcrcd to be under control, but it
broke out afresh and under the pres-
ent high winds it will probably de-
stroy most of the timber on the b g
Kjperautu language Sum-t'ds Volapnk.
Esperanto is the name of the pro-
posed universal language which Dr.
Zamenlof, a Russian, is said to have
invented. Volapuk died a natural
death some years ago. Gladstone once
predicted that English, which is to-
day spoken by upwards of 120,000,000

Millions Kot No Meat.
In India, China, Jpan and adjacent
countries are about 400,000,000 people,
strong, active and long-lived, who eat
no meat. The Turkish porter, on a
daily ration of rice and dates, will jog
along with bent head under a load
that would crush a western man. Dar-
win tells us that the Andean native*
do a day's work of 400 foot tons, near-
ly twice the work of an ordinary labor-
er, on a diet of bananas.
Varln Show Started late*
The disappointment of the steamship
companies b?cause trans-Atlantic trav-
el has not increased as much as they
anticipated it would on account of the
Paris exposition, and the suggestion
that some of them may reduce their
rates in midsummer are due in part to
the fact that the Paris show is not
completed. Had the exposition build-
ings and exhibits been ready, the
travel would have been much heavier.

For over forty years Alfred de Mus-

pilgrimage to his tomb at Pere-La-

Mois de Mai." The willow tree which
stands close to his grave—the "light
shade" he so pathetically requested—
was brought from South America by a
poet, who undertook the task in order
to fulfill the desire of De Musset,
whose works he revered. The poet's
name is Hilarip Escasuba, and the tree
came from Parana.
