What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Extra guards were detailed to public buildings an d ♦ hurebes.

As to this, about all that needs to be said Is that the country Is in an eminently strong po­ sition to supply any country with all gold that may be needed for export, and that while such action would fail to furnish the demand for Amer­ ican goods for export that has been hoped for, it would tend to create a liquid financial and banking situa­ tion In Germany which might consti­ tute the best basis of all for antici­ pating decisive recovery In our for­ eign business. Meantime the secur­ ity markets are getting ready to ab­ sorb not only a good many govern­ ment or official Issues troiu foreign borrowers but also a cons'derable amount of paper of private concerns abroad which need new financing. Market Review and Outlook Although some symptoms of reces­ sion or weakness have of late occa­ sionally made themselves apparent, the market ha» shown a decided abll lty to recuperate after sinking spells W h ile it remains true that the public at large has not been disposed to come into the market actively, the The relation of the general out- sound and well seasoned shares have look to business conditions) Is one shown entirely satisfactory ability which calls for considerable discrim­ ination. Conditions are undoubted­ ly unsatisfactory or depressed in the textile trades, while in some others, such as the pleasure car Industry, there are unwholesome finanaial con­ ditions that call for rectification In the farming regions prices are cer­ tainly not high enough to yield an adequate return to the cultivator, who suffers correspondingly. All this makes a situation in which it to highly desirable that there should be an improvement of the situation. On the other hand, employment is still very broad and satisfactory, Activ­ ity in the steel and metal industry and In building continues high. It to said that a large amount of struc­ tural steel orders has been recently placed with the leading manufactur- ing quite satisfactorily. for self-defenBe, due largely to the circumstance that their holders are not easily discouraged, feeling satis­ fied that future developments will show that they are Justified in hold­ ing on. Anything like concentrated buying would easily lift prices high­ er, particularly as the situation abroad seems to have brightened very considerably since the Dawes re port made Its appearance. It la hardly to be expected that the up­ ward movement will continue with­ out Interruptions, for the reason that there to still much uncertainty as to the legislation that 1s to be enact­ ed, especially with regard to remov­ ing the income tax burdens of the country which to so badly needed.

When the boll broke we cleaned It out carefully with a few strands of clean hemp rope. Hoofs Painted \A fter cleaning out the sores we painted the hoofs with Stockholm tar This prevented the cow« from licking the sores on account o f the unpleasant taste of the tar, which to, however, quite harmless. \In all, we treated more than lol) head of cattle suffering from this plague during the winter of 1889-87 and we cured each cow entirely go that we never lost a head.
