Her Brother s Letters

In Which the Brother Talks to
His Sister About Never Marry
ing a Man Until She's Got
Another Man's Honest
Opinion of Him.
"A girl should never marry a fellow
until she's got another man s honest
opinion of him. She can always get
such an opinion, Kittens, even where
she has no father or brother.
There's always a straight chap
somewhere around whom a girl
can go to, and that sort of man
will never refuse to be honest
with suoh a girl if she will be
honest with him and if she
will heed what he says when he puts the facts before her and not go off
on that silly tangent of reforming a man after marriage! If a girl likes
to play the role of a martyr and that sort of thing seems to appeal to
a lot of girls it's about the surest way to a perfect hell on earth (for
give me, Sis, but that's the only word) that she can findl"

DUX'S REVIEW OF TRADE
Higher Temperature Checks letsil 8a1ei
tf Seasonable Yerehandia.
CLOUD ON THE LABOR HORIZON
Strike la Building; Trades Mar later,
'ere with Construction Which
la Now at Hlah Water
NEW YORK, Nov. 24 R. G. Dun A
Company's weekly review of trade to
morrow will say:
Fundamental conditions are unchanged,
although higher temperature at many
points again checked sales of heavyweight
wearing Apparel and other seasonable
merchandise. Labor conditions In the build
ing trades have not Improved and another
serious struggle may occur which would
be most unfortunate In view of the large
operations under wav and contemplated.
Otherwise the situation Is satisfactory
and the outlook bright with mercantile
collections steadilv improving. Holiday
trade gathers impetus as the season ad
vances. Comparisons with last year's fig
ures continue favorable, this week's gains
being swelled by the holiday a year ago,
but equilibrium In this respect will be re
stored neit week. Leading industrial un
dertakings report little Idle machinery and
there is less complaint regarding car short
age, railway earnings thus far available
for November exceeding last year's by 6.4
per cent. Foreign commerce at this port
for the last week showed a loss of I1.0S9.
032 In exports and a gain of (63,177 In im-
fiorts as compared with the same week
ast year. It Is customary at this time of
year to find a general quieting down In the
iron and steel business, normal conditions
do not prevail this season. Although the
leading Interests have prevented any sen
sational inflation of prices, all divisions of
the market have hardened sufficiently to
accelerate the operations of consumers who
believe that It is the part of wisdom to
prepare for future requirements.
Activity continues at textile mills, but
the primary markets for cotton goods were
decidedly disturbed by the violent advance
in raw material.
Quiet conditions continue In the market
for parker hides, chiefly because orders
cover deliveries so fur Into the future that
Hellers are indifferent regarding new busi
ness. Leather remains quiet because of
tho light offerings of such varieties as are
wanted. New Kngland footwear factories
aro hurrying contracts for delivery be
fore the close of the year and also cutting
the next season's goods.
Failures this week numbered 23 In the
Tnlted Ptates against 205 last year and
thirty-four in Canada compared with
thirty a yetfT ago.

In the court room there were TOO
spectators who had heard that the former
educator and financier would plead guilty.
Attorney Irwin addressed the court. He
said that Dougherty had turned all of his
property over to him and that he (Irwin)
had been given right of attorney to settle
the affairs of the prisoner. He added that
Dougherty's property would amount to
more than the school board defalcations.
He admitted that Dougherty had beer,

"I find it necessary to send him to the

be a severe punishment. In count No. 200
