LONDON, July SO. As had been, an
ticipated, tho Bank of England today
raised Its minimum rate of discount an
entire point, making It 4 per cent, Tho
step was taken as a protective mcasuro
in view of tho chaotic financial conditions
on tho continent following the outbreak
of war between Austria-Hungary and
Servla and the almost general advanco of
the bank rates in continental centers.
By discounting bills freely during tho
last few days while ordinary sources .for
discounting were practically suspended,
and by arranging credit in connection
with gold coming from New York whllo
American exchange was so difficult to
obtain, the Bank of Gngland considerably
relieved the financial world. Now, how
ever, that a raid Is being made on its gold
supplies by the continent of Europe the
Bank of England has found It necessary
to take protective measures.
Something like $5,000,000 In gold went
out yesterday, whllo France took prac
tically tho wholo of the $5,000,000 which
arrived from South Africa on Tuesday,
and although $15,000,000 is coming from
New York, to pay for securities sold ro
cently this sum can hardly arrive In time
to offset any further continental demands.
Absolute gloom prevailed today on the
slock exchange. Yesterday's crop of fail
ures and tho fact that thero in&n no Im
provement in tho European crisis bad a
most depressing effect. Quotations were
somewhat 'tinder yesterday's figures, but

The Imperial German bank still main
tained its waiting attitude,, but it Is
understood that It will follow London's
- example In' increasing the bank rate.
France. Itulsea llnlr,
PARIS, July 20. The bank of ' France
today raised- its discount rate from 314
44 per cent, and Its rate for loans from
4HS&V4 Per cent.
Tho Parts Bourse opened today as
usual, but there was no business. The
nominal quotation of French 3 per cent
rentes was unchanged.
It was announced by the committee of
tho Bourso that the monthly settlement
for July had been postponed until August
31 for all stocks, Including rentes.
Tho Frencn public seems to ragard a
general war as a certainty. The crowds
outside the. savings banks today were,

WASHINGTON, July SO.-Bewaro of so
called anti-fat "cures," that Is the warn
ing of tho Department of Agriculture
today In response to numerous Inquiries
relative to specific remedies.
As a result of tests to determine tho
efficacy of a number of alleged "nos
trums," tho department asserts that
practically all such preparations aro
worthless. "In the knowledgo of nil drug
specialists at the present time," it is de
clared, "there Is no preparation thnt can
bo depended on to reduce flesh In any
marked degreo without doing Injury."
Specialists of the department declare
that the only ways they know of safely
to reduce flesh are rigid dieting and
strenuous exercise, and those, to be ef
fective, must bo continued over a long
period of time.
Letters urging prevention of the salo
of tho preparations In Interstate com
merce under the food and drugs act have
been received, but tho department de
clares that Is practically Impossible, "for
the reason that tho claims on tho pack
ages aro purposely so guarded as to cvado
action." Tho only thing it can do, tho
department concludes, Is to warn the peo
ple, against tho use of such preparations.
