It Taken tho Bakery,
a representative of Thb News, in his sec-
ond trip to Orange within the month, as the
result of his one day's effort, took twenty tivo
subscribers to our Weekly, and with two
exceptions the subscribers availed them-
selves of onr latest oKer by procuring a
copy each of "0;ir Family Physician." The
fiist trip resulted in the placing of quite a
number. Surely there is merit in the work,
or it would not be eo eagerly sought after.

NEW YORK[STOCK EXCHANGE. .
NEW York,!April 3.—The stock market was
less Bctlve end lower In the forenoon to-day,
but rallied, and was strong throughout tho re-
mainder! of the day, and marked advances
were scored Inmost of the active Hats. Lou-
don sent buylrg orders at tho opening, but
they were soon filled and a sharp drive was
ir ade at Lackawanna on a reduction In tolls
on the Leb'gh Vallej, and a strike on the
Michigan Central was made the moans of de
pressing, the general lists. The resistance to
tie decline was too gr< at, however,and shorts
began to cover and foreigners took large
blocks of stocks, which completely turned the
dilftof tho market, and no further reaction
was bad during the rest of the day, while
among speculators sharpadvanoes were estab-
lished liuyingof grangers and Gould stocas
wa» particularly good, and foreign purchases
of Re ading, St. Paul, lU ion Pacific and Louis-
ville and Nashville wero very marked. The
udvance was helped by rumors that the Van
derbilts were behind their stocks, and
that the senate would take speedy action
cn the bond purchase bill, but best
support was from covering of shorts. Lato lu
the day Jersey Central, Burlington and s"1 me
cf the southern stocks attracted apaclat atteu-
tlon, Richmond, West Point preferred and
Norfolk and Western pieferred being very
conspicuous for the strength displayed The
demand for stocks in the loan crowd con
tinued unabated, though lates wore still un-
charged. The feeling at the opening was
much better, and the first pulls showed a l-
vanceslof from ««1 percent later In Canada
Southern, but the raid on Las«awo.nua
biought that stock down IX per cent and the
rest ot the list fractional amounts. The 'Io-
dine met wt'h a check, however, toward
noon, and nicer that lime there was renewed
buying for lObt account and prices slowly ad-
vanced, the Iobsoi of the morning hours
lielrg rcgulned about delivery hour. After
that time, however, the market developed
walked strength, aud while the .-a was no In
(lease in the amount of bu-ilness done giins
weie more important than at any
previous time. The close was quiet
but strong at best prices of the day In tlie
mi jority of cases. Active list almost without
exception Is higher this evening, and Rich
mond and West Point Is up 3. Jersey Central
