in some eastern markets the week has
brought out contract for delivery in the
closing months of IM.
In the rails the mills report about two

avoidance of any Inflation are now the
factors that will contribute moat largely
to continued activity.

preesure that haa been noticed for soma
weeks, there 1 still a steady inquiry, and
selling age,nts are utterly unable to arrange
shipments as requested. There Is little
disposition to dispute quotations as the
goods can be aecured. although much busi
ness has been transacted and the question
Is raised as to how much speculative buying
has occurred. There Is no export trade,
aside from regular movement to South
America and the Island markets, although
Inquiries from China are reported on special
lines. The opening of the woolen goods
aeason ha been aufflclently Irregular to
make It difficult to determine the trend of
demand. Much business has been done in
staple dress goods for delivery next full

Staple farm products have fluctuated
within narrow limits, no development of

the support of unfavorable crop new from

Cranium of an Ancient Nebraakan
Fxrltea In veattgatlon and Some
The discovery of a human skull on a hill
side above Florence, Neb., a few months
ego, and the claim set up by the discoverers
that it was a relic of an ancient race, ex
cited considerable interest in anthropolog
ical circles and furnished a text for a paper
by Henry Fairfield Osborn In the January
number of the Century Magaxine. Mr. Os
born dlacuaaea and compares various type
of ancient man, paleolithic, neanderthal and
neolithic, and concludes that the Nebraska
specimen has a large stock of centuries to
Its credit. "The comparisons which we are
able to make," saya the writer, "now prove
that this cranium is of a more recent type
by far than that of the neanderthal man. It
may prove to be of more recent type even
than that typified by the early neolithic
man of Europe. Even If not of great an
tiquity it Is certainly of very primitive
type, and tends to Increase rather than di
minish the probability of the early advent
of man In America."

history of the Standard Oil Company. The publication of each a temperate history ourbt to settle, for those
whose minds remain open on the subject, just how much of Mrs. Eddy is money-seeking; charlatan and how
much is seer." y
The opening chapters of this life are in the January number, in which
number will appear also the following:
Carl Schurz's Reminiscences reach a most exciting piece of description
The Lincoln-Douglas Debate
This story has a never-ending charm for all Americans and is told from a new
point of view and in a most intimate way.
Possibly the only Christmas story appearing in any magazine at Christmas
time is the characteristic Myra Kelly story, "A Perjured Santa Claus." This
question of whether or not there is a real Santa Claus gets a new angle in the
story of the little boy who tried to have Santa Claus brought before the police
magistrate for perjury.
One of the contributions which will be vitally interesting will be the care
ful account of "The Jewish Invasion," by Burton JHendrick, in which is de
scribed the advent of the Jew in our country and the methods by which he obtains
such eminence in commerce, literature, art or whatever he sets his hand to do.
Other stories, papers and many g;ood picture make the January McClnre'a a epoch-marker.
