: "At i every point where the figures are

precludes a boom next falL - A fair demand
for large stocks at low prices is the best that
can be expected.1 ' The railroads will have

carried low or Europe will not take them.
Railroad earnings have kept up well in the
first five months of the year. 1 and an im
provement is likely : but it will be- by no

up at the beam over his head, and quickly
made a survey of all 'the dread parapher

asked them to uncover, and all heads were

in these1 words: 'Father, out'of the depths

opened the Bible, and Guiteau, in firm

18th chapter of Mathew, from the 28th to

with a clear strong voice and with good in-:
tonation, showing little i; any nervousness.
Dr." Hicks produced the manuscript wnicn
was prepared ty the prisoner this morning,
and held it before him wile Guiteau read.
While Dr. Husks was aarangmg the manu
script Gniteau exhibited a slight nervous

to the other-, . He recovared his composure:
however, looked over the sea of upturned
