STOCKS AND BONDS.
New York Feb. 12. The share specu-
lation today was dull and without im-
portant features. At the opening a strong
tone prevailed and the trading was fairly-
active on reports from Washington that
tho Republican members of the house
would support the gold bill. Under the
impetus given by the favorable news
prices moved up sharply in the lirst half
hour Manhattan sugar Chicago gas and
Iho grangers leading the upward move-
ment which did not extend beyond 1 per
rent. The figures induced realizations
which caused a partial reaction in the
shares which had previously advanced.
After midday the general market gave
way slightly but the pressure to sell was
slight and the market soon steadied its-
elf; ft renewal of sales scut prices
again downward nnd figures below yes-
terday's low point were touched North-
western preferred breaking 1 and the rest
of the list a fraction. Compared with
yesterday's final sale the closing of the
prices of tho day are very irregular but
a majority of tho shares dealt in are
higher. Chief among the shares are
Northwestern preferred 1 and Louisville
New Albany preferred both 7-8.
The trade in bonds during the morning
was lint and no material changes were
recorded. In the subsequent dealings
the volume of business was slightly in-
creased nnd a decided trend toward low-
er figures were noted. The aggregate
sales were $ST30(K.

Wild I (iwl-dn at (.rouni! for
SportHmen In North
If there is another place within any
kind of accessible distance from New
York where the sportsman can find
more abundant and varied use for his
T gun than the reedy shores of
1 Hyde county. North Carolina on the
many inland hikes u:v in the dense
woods in tl::.t country I would like to
know wh'-re it is said an enthusiastic
and traveled sportsman according to
the New York Sun. As soon as the
rigors of the northern winter set in
wild swan wild geese and wild ducks
cauvusbuoks mallards redheads and
all the choice varieties begin to drop
down in thousands in the Hyde county
and adjacent waters and for months
delight the gunner by their persistent
Especially do those waters seem to
be an attraction for wild geese which
are the smartest wiliest and most sus-
picious of nil the wild fowl that con-
gregate down there. Even in spite of
their numbers and with the novel and
effective way geese are hunted on the
Hyde county waters a man mustn't go
there with the idea that all lie has to
do is to squat in his blind blaze away
and gather in his game for if lie dots
he will be disappointed. The novelty
in wild goose hunting in that locality
is the use of live decoys "the actual
training of wild geese to lure as cap-
tives their free kind to destruction.
Years ago. so many that no one can re-
member the time some Hyde county
hunter wounded a wild goose captured
it and took it home alive. It recovered
and began to lay eggs. After it had
laid a couple of dozen or so of eggs the
goose wanted to set and they set her.
She hatched out a big brood of goslings
and they were genuine wild ones.
Then the owner of this brood of wild
goslings got the idea that when the
young geese were large enough he
might utilize them as decoys for wild
goe.se. lie gave his idea a trial. The
result proved that it was a great idea
and ever tincc then the raising and
training of wild geese to be used in
making the goose hunt more successful
has been a regular industry on that
part of the North Carolina coast.
The bottom of Pamlico sound along
the shores is of 6now-wbite sand ana
in it arc the nutritive roots of the
plants on which tho wild geese feed.
Tho shores themselves are vast tangles
of reedy marsh. Tho reeds are very
tall and tho hunter docs not have to
build his blind for wild-fowl 6liooting.
Do simply makes a space in the reeds
closo to tho water and lies there with
tho natural surrounding growth of
rccds ns his ambuscade. When the
goose hunter goes out to lie In wait for
his game he takes with him as many of
his decoy geese as ho wants to use.
These are easily obtained for in every
locality there are one or more persons
who have from ten to fifty geese that
are at the sportsman's service either by
hire or purchase. The "goose yards"
where these decoy geese are raised and
trained are familiar portions of the
premises of the Hyde county native.
The trained wild geese know when
they are going hunting as well as a
bird dog or a deer hound. They are
taken from the yard to the hunting
ground sometimes in a coop and some-
times in a bag with holes cut in it out
of which they stick their heads. The
moment a hunter appears ut a yard to
hire or buy an outfit of decoy geese the
fowls become excited and set up a
great cackling. The number the hun-
ter wants being selected the coop or
bag is produced. Tho geese scamper
to creep in and then become quiet.
When the spot where the decoys are to
be set is reached the hunter or his at-
tendant cuts from the marsh-bottom as
many pieces of sod as thero are geese
to be used. These pieces of sod are
about a foot square. Each one is sunk
six inches beneath the 6iirface of the
water and secured there by driving a
stake through it into the sand. To
this stake a goose is fastened by a strap
around its leg the decoy standing on
the sod. This gives it the appearance
of resting and floating on the surface
as if it had alighted there and tho
skillful distribution of geese in a group
in this way gives an appearance of nat-
uralness which the best artificial de-
coys cannot approach no matter how
expertly they may be placed or ma-
nipulated. After his geese are all placed the
hunter takes his station behind the
thick growth of reeds. It is a mani-
festation of the wonderful keenness of
a wild goose's hearing that long before
even the trained car of the professional
fowl hunter has detected the cries of
an approaching flix-k of geese tins de-
coys have heard them and becoming
suddenly alert begin to send back re-
sponsive honks. Ily and by a faint V-
shaped line comes into sight against
the sky that unmistakable figure of a
flock of geese in flight. In many in-
stances the hidden hunter would 6ee
this line keep high in unwavering pro-
cession toward distant resting and
feeding grounds but for the presence
of his honking decoys. The sound of
their cries and the sight of them clus-
tered on the water rarely fail to cause
ne.llock to drop lower circle back and
finally plump into the water for inves-
tigation. raid for Their Joke.
While a Bowdoin college professor
was holding a recitation some mis-

the class-room and play "Sweet Marie"

professor immediately came out hat in
hand and passed it to everyone of the
students exhorting them to be gener-
ous. Taking the money collected he
gave it to the organ-grinder and then
told him in Italian to leave. Then he
returned to his recitation leaving the
students to realize that they were tho
real victims of the Joke.

A private letter from St. Petersburg
mentions the mysterious disappearanct
of a valuable diamond from the crown
of jewels. It is well known that the
imperial crown of the Russian czar is
set with a great number of very fine
and large diamonds. During the late
czar's funeral procession this crown
was carried by a high dignitary from
the Nicolajevskl railroad station to the
Castle of Peter and Piul and during
this time it is thought the jewel was
lost. Great secrecy is observed by the
oflicials but still the rumor has spread.
An inquiry is known to have been
ordered. A prominent jeweler expresses
the opinion that the stone may have
been crushed into the interior by care-
lessness and might be found between
the metal rim and the purple velvet
A farmer named Sam Jones set a
trap for a fox the other day in a clear-

and when he went to see if he had
caught anything he found that the
trap was gone notwithstanding it had
been secured by a chain and a heavy
staple driven into a log. The chain
had been broken off and fox tracks led
away leaving a tolerably plain trail In
the dead leaves. This trail Jones fol-
lowed until he reached a small opening
some dozens of rods away where on
the moss lay his fox dead and holding
fast by the throat with its jaws a dead
eagle. The eagle in sailing over the
woods had 6pied the fox in the trap and
had swooped down upon it but the
fox though crippled by the trap had
made a fame fight and killed his as-
sailaat while yielding up his own hfa.
BEHOLD A MYSTERY!

Mr. Moody Talked About the Bible at
li.e Afternoon Service and at Night
on Almost Reaching the Ileavi u-
It was cold last evening for this cli-
mate and a popular comedy was an at-
traction at the opera house yet frum n
partial count by a Statesman reporter
there must have been over 2000 people
at the capitol to hear Mr. Moody.
The Statesman has been hen- a great
many years and has chronicled . the
gatherings both secular and religious
but never in its history has it seen the
people of Austin brave the cold and turn
out in such numbers to lieur any preacher.
Was it because Mr. Moudy is an ora-

Word that has come clown vhrough tlie
ages is still a power and influences men
as nothing else on earth does. Last night
he preached from the text "Thou Art
Not Far From the Kingdom of God."
He told his story in simple plain com-
mon sense language and it went home to
that vast congregation. He said: "There
are a great many men and women not
far from God. but some one besetting sin
keeps them irom stepping over the line
into Heaven. They want to compromise
sin but they cannot do it. A sin is a sin.
You cannot compromise it."
He also said that "a few years ago 11
wave of infidelity swept over the country
but it is now fast receding and there is
now 11 wave of religion sweeping over the
country that 1 believe will be greater
than the wave of 1S75. You don't sis1
much of ii now but you will and out
of all our financial troubles we now have
great good will come. He aptly illustrated
his text by the life of King Herod whom
he said got very near the Kingdom of
God. but failed to reach it because of 11
besetting sin which he refused to con-
fess and give up. "There are 500 people
men and women in this house tonight
