In her high notes, however, tho song-rtre- ss shows fatiguo. Mmo. Gorstcr cannot \attack\ them with tho same audacity as formerly, and sho is too much of an artist not to realize that fact. It was evident that this caused much disappointment to thoso who romeniborcd her former blrd-lik- e tones. In untcchnical parlance her voice would bo called \ fat,\ For an encoro Mmo. Gorster tang \Oonnals tu lo pays?\ from \Mignon.\ with splondld expression. In the second part of tho procrammo sho cavo gave \I Vespri Sicilian!,\ and. in a dnet with Big. Carbone, Donizetti's \Elisir d'Amoro.\ Mr. Abbey's com. pany was admirable. Its shining light Tias. of course, Sic. Do Anna, who is very popular with New Yorkors and whoso magnificent voice in the romance from ' Er. nani \ simply electrified the audionco. Ho also sang an air from \ Trovatore,\ and in tho duet from \ Fnvorita,\ with Mme. Helen Uastreiter. That lady was in oxcollont voice and most omiablo mood. Sho sang, \ Can I Bear This Anguish \Weary ?\ from Or- pheus,\ with great foeling, and an aria from r' II Guaranv.\ Theodoro JJjorkstcn was well received, but his voice is rather weak. Big. Carbono was so vigorous that it was al- most necessary to hold on to one's scat whilo he was singing. Miss Nettie Carpenter did some excellent violin work in \Wioniawski'a second concerts. Mr. Abbey says tho loss of tho Tuesday night Gerster concert will cost his firm some- thing like S6.000. Of course all tho expenses wero running, although tho rocoipts wero stopped. Mr. Abbey cannot be disturbed by such trifles, however. Ho smiled pleasantly as he referred to the unfortunate Tuesday, and spoko of it in his ubuoI placid mannor. Col. John A. McCaull gave a delightful Thanksgiving dinner yesterday to every \ soul \in his employ, at Polifonte Morell's restaurant. Stage carpenters, scene shifters, chorus and company all participated, and were headed by tho gontlo little being with tho straw-colore- d hair, known as Maior-Gc- Benjamin D. Stevens. Col. McCaull's major domo. The colonel himself, with Do Wolf Hoppor, Mmo. Cottrelly. De Angelis, Harry Macdonough, Mr. and Mrs. Digby Boll and others of the cast sat round a small table and discussed turkey. Speeches of tho right kind that is to sav, extremely short ones wore made. Col. McCaull's health was pro- posed, and the occasion was extremely merry. The dinner was sandwiched in betwoen tho , matinee and tho overling performance. It is now said that at tho now French and Sanger theatro to bo opened in February \ The Bells of Haslemero \ will bo tho first play presented. This is a melodrama, now being played in London, and in which Mr. Terriss and Miss Millevard figure- conspicu- ously. An interesting entertainment, under tho rnanagemennt of A. M.

Itlght In the richest and most romantlo part of this glade, with broad grounds stretching down to tho Hudson and terminating In a Gothlo boat-hous- Is a very spacious and handsome reald ence. Its white walls are flanked by deep veran- das, over which the wild roses have grown thickly. The gravelled walks are clean swept. The undu- lating lawns are cool and shadowy with the elms and Junipers. At the entrance gate, where a cedar lodge affords two rustlo seats, sits a lsdy In a palo blue dress of the richest texture, loosely cnt, and girdled simply at the walat. Sho wears a little gypsy hat and sho Is very beautiful. Her white hand, as It lies on tho rough rail of the lodge, shoots a little red gleam as the setting sua touches the diamond on her finger. She is looking down the road In a reverie. The dust of the highway Is like flying gold. The autumn gleams of the Western sky turn the maples to a blood-ro- and they burn In the vista like live coals dropped from the sky. The penslvo face lights up. Borne one Is approaching. She Hits her head up and you see tho coal-gra- y eyes and the sweeping eyebrows. A handsome vehicle is driven in at the gate. A man Jumps out and the vehicle goes on up to the house. He springs up the little step, puts an arm about tho blue dress and kisses the woman's up- turned mouth. Iler srm has gone over his shoulder and she holds him a moment In an embrace. 'I saw your face half a mile down the road,\ he said \what a beacon ot love it Is. IIow long have you been waiting?\ \Not long. I've been thinking,\ she replied, \It's a thinking hour. The sound of the locusts makes me melancholy.\ \Well he said, sitting down by her aide, \ I suppose nothing will rob a woman of that lux- ury. But there is nothing need to make you mel- ancholy, Is there 7\ \ No, only the fear that perfect hanplness can 1ATfSV loaf If \ It's lasted pretty stoutly for two years. My darling, when It's built right It Is eternal. What have you been thinking about?\ \Of how good and noble and yon are,\ she said promptly, \Everything re- minds me of It when you are away.\ \I llko that,\ he aald laughingly and trying to be facetious. ' Doesn't anything remind you of it when I am here?\ She didn't pay any attention to his humor, but kept on In her own vein. \When I think of it all, \ she said, \It seems to me It must stoju Sometimes I look at myself and I cannot comprehend it. I am so different, Tell me, what was It made you love me?\ \ I've asked myself that question a thousand times,\ he replied, \but I never gotra satisfactory reply. Tho only posslblo answer was, I Just did.\ \ What you could havo seen In poor me I can't imagine.\ \Nor I, \said he. \I never did Imtjlne. I J oat saw. All I know about It Is I loved yon with a uperuatural lovo from the first, and I could no 'more struggle against It than a man can struggle against a stroke of lightning. I don't know what made me carry you off that night when I aa you In front of your father's house. I must have been desperate, and it was indefensible. But you see It all turned out right. Now there Is nobody on sarth to dispute my right to you. I wish you could be as happy us I am la the consciousness ot It.\ \ Oh, I'm afraid, \she said, \ that I am not capa- ble of It. Yon are co much wiser and better than Ism.\ 6A i'S iP \TOERlt IB KO rOWXR ON KA IlubbUb,\hesa!d. \ You are the salt of the earth and don't know It. You are Just as good as you can be to let me worship you as I do and not laugh at me. Sometimes I think from your 'de- jected air that you are lonesome, and that after all you might have been happier with some one else.\ \No no, no,\ she repeated. \ Never allow such a thought to pass through vour mind. I havo grown so full of a great love that I tremble only to think something might happen to it.\ \Oh well, ' he said carelessly, \If that Is all. I'm satisfied, becauso nothing ever oan happen to it.\ They got up and walked up the path with their anna about each other. ' My dear, \ she aald, \ accidents might happen,mlghtlhey not ? You go away so much. And when you are gone It isn't reasonable to he as happy as when you are here. \ \ Is my lust visit to tho city for some time,'' be answered. \I must go back and give my ovldence In the suit. Then the matters of tho estate will be all settled and we can sit quietly down here for the winter and make our friends come to our fireside, and when (the spring returns we'll go to Italy and look at all tho places we shall read about theao coming long.nlghu. \ Must you go J\ \I'm afraid I must, but 111 be back the next day If poailble. It Is very Important that I should be there.\ XII. On.the morrow. They acted like children. Bui there was something beautiful In her tendor de- votion and In her clinging fondness for him. in ftWtfaWlilaafr nH Si im OAN TAKE TOD FROM UKl\ fihe went to the train with him, and when he was gone thero were childish tears In her eyes. Dot she came back and set about her simple duties with a happy air. There was ao much to bo done beforo the cold weather set In, and she wanted to transform her alttlnz-roo- bofore he got back. The matting had to come up and the heavy carpets to go down. The English fireplace had to be lit. The furniture bhe had the plants from the conservatory brought In and tea. tooned In the bay window. The beat books of travel were acattered on the centre-tabl- e. The leopard akin wat laid before tho ruddy logs. The great Limoges lamp was ready for lighting. Bbo atood and looked at the growing comlort of her work with pleasure. Oazlng out of tho bay window she said: \ Presently tho anow will be on all tho hills and nelda and come bleakly down In big flakes for days; tho winds will blow those trees and race across the dead leaves, end we shall be ao happy and comfortable here.\ On the day that sho expected him back she even sat down on a cushion before the, fireplace and Imagined him In the big chair there, with his slip, person, reading to her, while the guats aang out- side and It was all si Jolly and pleasant Inside. While she sat there with a dreamy smile of hap- piness on her handsome face her reverie became so deep that she did not hear the crunch ot car-ria- wheels on the gravel, and the ring ot the doorbell startled her. She wondered who It could be, and while she wondered aha heard voices in the hall, then a heavy footstep, and the next mo- ment the door opened suddenly and she was star- ing up from the cashlon, like one In a dream, into the face of John Watson Keeley. Changed as he was, aho knew htm In an Instant, and a little scream escaped lroin her. lie stood Just Inside thefdoor with his felt hat In his band, and just behind bun was the Indignant servant. \Tell your flunky to go away and leave us alone,\ he said with a jerk ot his head and with a cold, cruel tone. She got np and staggered to the table, and lean- ing upon It tried to be sure It was not an Illusion. \Tell him,\ repeated Mr. Keeley, \that you are my wife. There's been a mlatoko and ho don't waul to mako It worse. \ Sho heard this without clearly understanding It. \Your wife,\ she repeated, drawing her hand Involuntarily across her eyes. \Your wife 1\ And then with a sob. \My God, can It be reel\ In her perplexity and helplessness she started for the bay window. Somehow aho felt that If he wero only hero ho would save her. He had always aaved her. The man, thinking, aho Intended to escape by the window, sprang after her. Then Bhe turned and drow herself up, and they atood facing each other for a moment. \Say the word, mum, and I'll drag him Into the road,\ said the servant. \Will you J\ replied Mr. Keeley. \You'd bet- ter go slow. I told vou this was my wife. I've come to fetch her, and If you Interfere with me, 111 doable you up with an ounce of lead. I don't allow anybody to come between mo and my wife.\ He looked desperate and capable of anythlng.and a new and sudden fear sprang up in the woman. It if) came back now there would be a scene of vio- lence and Tie would get killed. After all, she was this man's wife. Nothing, nothing must happen to Afnu \(lo out in the hall.\ aho said to the servant. ' I will talk lo this man. \ \And shut the door,\ aald Mr. Kecloy. \Oh you can listen, but don't you Interfere.\ When the man bad gono out the woman spoke. ' ' Stand back, and tell me what you w nt. \ \I want you. Do you know you've committed a State's prison offense? Do you think I'd come here If I wasn t right ? I Just want you.becauso you're mine. Now.tuko my adtlce and mako It pleasant. Where's your paramour:\ ' What do you want to ifo with me T\ she aaked. 'Oh, I Juat want to mako you love, honor and obey me. Ho get your traps on, and bring a lot of money, for I'm dead broke.\ \You aro a ruffian and a villain,\ ahe said, \and I believed you were dead.\ \ Well, you see, I'm not, so don't waste words. There's nothing so desperate as an outraged hus- band. And he always has the community on his aide.\ The thought that determined her was of the Igno- miny and ahame of all this to Mm, and the fear that If tho men met there would be bloodshed. ery Impulse of her naturo went out to hfiii In thla crisis, who had done so much for her. She knew that she must step down from her position aj a lady and become once more the companion of a desperado. Bhe knew that It would kill her. Hut she drow heraelf up and aaldt \ I will go with you. Oodhelpmel\ Then she took off her rings, unclasped the drops la her ears, stripped herself of every memsnlo of her happy life and laid them all in a little spark- ling pile on the table. \What are you doing!\ said Mr. Keeley, In astonishment. She did not reply, bnt went on In a mechanical manner. lie came and put his arm on her shoulder. \ Don't bo a fool I\ he said; ' you'll need 'em. \ Then ahe flamed np. \Don't touch me, or I shall drop at your feet,\ she J aid. Walking to the door sho flung It opoo. \Leave the room. When lam ready I will Join you In the hall. ' one pointed with an Imperative and he obeyed her with something like wonder and ad- miration In hla face. The moment she had shut the door, her distress was unbounded. Bhe walked up and down and wrung her hands. Sho went to tho window and with staring eyes of expectancy looked ont, say- ing: \Why doea henDt come?\ And then ahe turned away, saying: \No no, no; he mutt not come I lie must not como I I muat go I O Ood, why could not this beautiful dream have lasted?\ In a condition of terror and perplexity bordering on hysterics, she went round the room looking at each familiar ohjee: aa If for the last time. She put her Anger through the bars of a handsome bird-cag- e and a mocking bird lit upon her finger. \Oood-by- , alarlo; I'm going. Good-h- pet.\ And the bird let out a strain of Jubilant disbelief In anything like misfortune, and rubbed hla bill on her white linger. Hhe opened a door and a little terrier came bounding in. Bhe picked it np and fondled It. \Oood-by- , Jerry,\ aho said. \ I'vo got to go.\ And the dog yelped and struggled and wagged Its tall with a nne dog con- tempt for such an Impossibility. With a keen sense she took In all the elegant trifles of the room and their associations. There stood the little Japanese leaf ot and the two tiny B6vrea cups how many times aho had made the late cup of tea wtth her own hands us they sat there, and how often before drinking It they bad reached across the table like two children aud kissed each other. For a mo- ment she stood staring at vacancy. What would ho say wbea he found her gone. How would he live In this lorn lyplaco with all thefo reminder about him. What would he think of her who could go without leaving one word. She rashei to the little secretary and selied a pen, and began to write In an uncertain, shaky hand: \Oh my darling, the blow has fallen. Uod bless you ami nelp you. Vou mil know all without my telling you. There la t.tit one place where we Khali not tie separated. I will go there first and wait for you.\ She folded it and left It on tho tablo by the aide of her trinkets. Then throwing on heavy wrap, she gave a gasp nnd opened the door. Mr. Keeley stepped In, closed It, and stood with his bark against it. ' Look here, Slag,\ asld he, \ as your'c going to be sensible and do the right thing, I don't want to be hard on you. Lttnow I ain't as ko1 as you are, but I swear I'll trnd be a different matt. I don't waut you to meet me with that kind of a look. I had you first, and you used to think something of me. You've bad a picnic for two years in this place, and I've had the hardest kind of luck. If you've saved anything, take it with you,\ \Leave the bouse,\ she said, with the magnifi- cent authority of contempt. \ If you are my hus- band you must support me. \ ' ' Thst'a all right, \ ne answered, \ but I've got to look after my wife's property!\ and he pointed to the Jewels on the table. This man was a deiperado. Bhe itw that. Something had made a reckless scamp ot him, and a consciousness otthta made her feverish to get away. Bhe called the nt In, gathered up the Jewels and the letter, and put them in his hand, saying: ' (Give those to Mr. Bedley when he cornea. Jfl The letter explains. \ 'Mr. Keeley put bis band onthe maaa ahoulder.\ \jj n youl\ he said. I told you' not to Inters. ''aaaaal fere between a man and his wife.

His wifo was a mistress of the rfrt of ncedlowork. This gift has de- scended to hor oldest daughter. Tho younger girl has aspirations to the stage The objects on which tho elder girl em-plo- hor skill aro ladies' bIioob, silk stock- ings, Bilk underskirts, gloves, and carters, The needles she uses have to be imported. It is a No. 13 necdlo, about as thick as an eye- lash. No. 20 needles, tho noxt size, aro so small that they do not havo an eye. They aro only used to make holes with. To get alrnmla flnA AnrMir.li frw 4lin vnvlr 4l,n atllr la split in two. Tho ancients used to call embroidered things rc'splcto acu, painted with a necdlo. Tho work of the refugee's daughter is so fiuo that it is llko painting with a needlo. Tho father used to do work for a largo dry-goo- houso somo yoars ago to tho extent of $000 or $700 a wook. But ho was encaged on something not likely to suggest itself in con- nection with flno silk embroideries. Ho worked for yoars and sunk a considerable sum of money in perfecting a gun which would discharge heaven knows how man shots nt once. Ho ncgociated 'with both tho English and American governments for its introduc- tion, but nothing has come of it except pov- erty, no used up his evenings in trying to slaborato the gun. They do work, the father and daughtor, for tho principal dry goods houses. Their work goes to tho Vanderbilts, the Goelets, Mrs. J. 0. Ayer and her daughter, Mrs. Gommodoro Piorson, Mrs. Terry, tho Van Aukens and dozens of other Now York ladies who inako dressing a flno art. Somo of their embroidery was sent to tho Paris Exposition. One plcco was a dosign for a slipper. It represented a peacock with a spread tall. Every feather of tho peacock's tail was made with a stitch of different-colore- d silk. At the Vanderbilt fancy ball, Mrs. Wilson ordored this pattorn to be embroid- ered on a pair of slippers. Tho oyes of tho peacock were small diamonds. Miss Van Auken had, as ono small itom in her trousseau, ten pairs of embroidered satin slippers. The colors aro blue, cream, white, sago greoq, dove and gray, and the embroid- ery' harmonizes with tho different tints. An- other beautiful pair of slippers is of pearl Suedo kid, and tho pattern is worked in small metal beads. Tho bridal slippers aro in silver bullion. \ I have boon embroidering now for two years,'' said tho elder girl, \ and thoro is no stylo I cannot do. I genorally sco what sort of stich suits tho pattern best. It is almost impossible to got girls to do any of the work. We advertise for them, and there are plenty of applications, but it is too fine work. I havo nover had ono learn it, Many of thorn leave as soon as they ueo the size of tho needle. It would take six months to teach a girlproperly.\ Of courso tho prices for this work aro good. An undershirt of silk costs $5 to embroider. The slippero and shoes aro $15 or $20. When Potor Oilsoywas marriod ho had n pair of slippers embroidered in cold bullion, nnd the embroidery alono cost r?2S. Ho probably did not uso thorn to play basoball in. It tjtkcB tho girl two days working from 8 to 12 nnd from 1 to 0 to embroider a pair of silk stockings. Thanriro is from $6to!?. Bomctimes a pair of kid gloves about two yards long and with forty.oight buttons aro sent in to bo cmbrolderod their whole length. Two or thrco dollars worth of work can bo stitched into garters. Why a silk garter should havo a gold clasp with a monogram ill lowcls and n profusion of flno needlework on it is ono of thoso things that no man kuowcth. Of courso tho work is taxing and worrying. Especially when a lady will oomo in and say, an they sometimes do s \Oh. that wont do. I havo no such colors as thoso in my cos- tume\ Thon about a thousand or two stltchos havo ,to bo taken out and others put in. \ Thnt tires me,\ said tho girl, \ but ladles who got this sort of work, done aro very though thov do not mind tho expouso vory often. I did tho stockings and slippers that Isabollo Urquhnrt wears in ' Tho Mar- quis. Sho knows what good work is. Somo of tho actresses llko showy things, but you can shovo inferior work off on them.\ SUE TRIED A MAN'S TRICK. A Scheme to Get si Ham Handirlch, m. Mince Fie nnd 85 Cents for Nothing. \ Pnt thoso things right down nnd got out of hero just os quick as you can. You'ro a dead fake and I'm onto you.\ It was in n Park row lunoh-roo- and noon tho busiest portion of tho day. Tho spenker wns tho young man whoio ear is over jalert for tho call of tho hurrying waiters Beet and 1\ \ Ham and 1\ \ T'oggs-t- wo !\ whilo his deft Angers aro dissecting a hugo hunk of comed-bee- f, slicing up hams, slash- ing loaves of bread, ladling baked beans, juggling with crockery and raking In dimes and chocks, nil with such rapidity that each seems part of tho samo net and to bo executed at tho samo time.

Thon tho young man made a vicious divo for tho big ramp of rod beef with his keen carver and told The Wom.d reporter about it. \That woman,\ ho said, \camo in hero seven weeks ago when I was just as busy ns I am Hlio ordered a sandwich and n pieco of plo and then waited for mo to ask for tho pay fifteen cents. When I did ask her she insisted that sho had laid down a dollar and sho was waiting for her change Well, it's hard to think a respectahlo-lookin- g woman liko her would Ho, but I know sho hadn't paid and mado hor show down. \ Sho triod tho same gamo again I was a little bit doubtful tho first timo whether 1 had taken her measurement properly, and so I thought I'd make a test. I pretended to bo a great deal busier than I was, and it caught hor. Sho thought she'd mnko eighty-fiv- e cents and her lunch, nnd tried tho old trick. You could seo from the way sho scurried out that sho was guilty. \ It's an old game, but is usually playod by men, and they aron't nearly so modc6t as that woman was. They usually ploy for change for a five, and sometimes they get it. \ It's a sneaking trick,\ concluded the carver, as ho roduccd a ham in length a quar- ter of tn inch with his greasy glahc. m m Oat of One's Atmosphere. From Karpert ZJasar, Mrs. A. (who entertains a good deal) I have really enjoyed the evening exceedingly, Mrs. Buck.

DAM probably lived ami diod with a full 6 brow n beard. Ho couldn't stroll through j- w. tho Garden of Kdon to iw RC0 now \10 \tncr (SHr 7 fxJs fd'ows \ wore their Xhyfnjl boards or mustaches. KJa lLvjj Tnnt '\ w,loro u0 Yin J'r0IM'wn' \well of y has tho advantage of Adam, Fashion is as capricious in dlo-tati- to tho stornor box how thoy Bhall trim their beards as it is to womon in trimming their bonnets. It is strnngo to seo how many variations tho hlrsuto growth on a man's faco is sus- ceptible of. Stranger still is it that so few mon lenvo tho wholo thing to naturo and let thoir beards grow as thoy will. Your man has con or ally begun tho down- ward courso which begins after tho grand climacteric. Occasionally a young follow who is jtut starting in on n profession will n full beard becnuso it inakoH him ?rov older, and extreme youth in doctors and lawyers is not usually regarded as their strongest claim to patronage. When they havo built up a praotico thoy can shovo off ton years of ago. Last year tho correct thing was to havo tho beard closoly trimmod and terminate in n point. Tho Vandyko stylo is not so muoh in voguo tho prosont season. To sport only a mustaoho is tho prevailing mode, and eiglit-tent- of tho mon that are met on tho street aro baro of visago except for tho fringes on thoir tippor lips. Home of tho youngost bloods aro oven dostituto of thoso, much to their dismay. Another fashion for tho presont season is to havo tho wholo lower half of tho faco Rhavcn clean, a lino almost straight from tho mouth to tho ear being tho dividing lino. It is Engusii, ana n cross ootween tno canon- ical inch,\ or llttlo tuft'whlch grows by tho ear, and tho \ llurnsldes,\ which tho Ilhodo Island General of that name mado fashion-abl- o through tlio civil war. Still another English fashion whloh finds favor with tho men on tho debatablo ground betwoen late youth and maturity is to wear a full beard of moderato length, parted on tho chin and brushed carefully to cither side. Nobody attempts to dye his mustaoho or board and po tho spoctaclo of a jet black growth with whlto roots is spared tho public Somo old bloods \who dio but novor surrender,\ cling to a bristling, snowy inustacho which stands out with distinguished cfToct ngaiUBt a fresh complexion made roBeato by tho intago of Champagne. Nobody y hns tho moral courage or idiocy to wax tho ouds of his inustacho so that thoy extend literally as stiff aB camhrio noodles with Hungarian cosmetic. Napoleon III. was tho author of this fashion, and James Fisk, jr., tho last brilliant oxamplo ot it in Gotham. Tho now stylo scorns to favor bar- bers. Hut thero Is no style which does not favor thorn except tho full beard whloh old ago allows to find its way to tho waistband, Thoro aro hundreds of men who would no moro think of attending to thoir own beards than of being manicuros. They don't know how to uso n razor. Thoy gash themselves pitiably, or mako thoir skins dreadfully raw. A number of thoso who grow hair on their faces dovolop a full beard during tho winter, and got shorn in spring. They think that it keeps them from getting cold. It does, to n certain extent, nut ft fails to prevent tho throat from gotting tender. Tho English aro moro given to tho full beard, kept at a certain length, than Ameri- cans aro. Hence it is doubtful is tho mus- tache alone will carry tho day entirely, or ob- tain for any length of timo. Ono has only to watch tho men that hurry through tho streets to seo that fashions in tho beard sway most of them.

The Customary Increase In the Demand Already Frit. Tho unusual demand for small coins which generally shows itself about holiday time is already folt, and reports from other sections of tho country say that tho demand for cents and fivo-ce- pieces especially cannot bo mot. Gold dollars, silver dollars, quarters and pieces also havo a speolal value at this season of tho year, and the supply is said to bo far below tho demand, especially in tho country. Thus far Now York has not boon affected in aporcoptlhlo degroo.aud it Is not probable, according to tho statement mado in tho Sub. Treasury, that tho stringency horo will bo as great as has been noticed in former years. Last Christmas season was romarkablo abovo all others for tho almost nttcr impossibility of procuring small coins. A premium as high as 25 por cont. was offered in somo in- stances for pennios. Ono charitablo institu- tion rcalizod n substantial sum by soiling its ponnlos, collected in church contributions, at tho rato of $1.10 por hundred, whilo many speculators in coins profited amazingly by the stringency in the small coin market. Said one of the officers nt the when questioned y ! \I do not think that the supply will fall far short of tho this year. Of courso, thero will be more or less of a cornor in tho nlokol and penny market, hut I havo no idea that tho will bo folt by tho businoss men which was experienced a year ago. Tho Government has taken unusual precautions this year to obviate tho difficulty and hns soiit out nil tho fractional pieces tho mint could coin and still keep np tho coinage of tho silver dollar whloh the statute commands. \ Tho report of the Director of tho Mint at Philadelphia shows that in September 41,000 fivo-ce- pieces wore coined, while a, 020, 000 pennios came fresh from tho mint. In Oc- tober tho colnngo of five-ce- pieces aggre- gated 718,000, whilo that of pennies was in of 4,000,000. Tho samo quantity has probably been put on tho market during tho present month. You see, therefore, thnt ovor 10,000,000 pennies, which is an immense num- ber, have already been put in circulation, to- gether with 1,000,000 nve-co- pieces, since Sept. 1 last. The reports also show that so ninny fractional stive coins have been put in circulation, that tho demand for them will be f ullv met. \Thus far wo havo had no demands made upon us which wo have not been able to sup-- although tho rush will not manifest itself Fly, until noxt week, or later.\
