It is barely possible that the weather may change and you'll prefer a Cape or Suit, instead. We'var both— you'll want both, at one time or another—for this variable climate of sturdy New England occasionally provides several specimens in a single day. But Bathing <Suits are bound to have their day, sooner or later, and there's nothing like being prepared. Extra qualities, fast colors, handsomely trimmed, rich or plain looking—as you prefer, easy feeling, double-sewed . and non-ripable, liberal skirts, and easy, graceful prices. Can't think iof anything that'll make a more perfect suit, can you? That Upholstery man is .always bringing out something new, clear-cut, pretty and cheap. He's opened up several styles Colored Drapery in beautiful colorings and elegant designs, suitable for cushions, lambrequins, scarfs and draperies: - Dresden Drapery, 17 cts. yd. Royaline Crepe, i7 cts. yd. Touraine, 22 cts. yd. Crepones, 12i cts. yd. Then there's some 200 Silk-ine Sofa Pillows, with ruffle, for 39 cents, each—just the thing for hammocks and summer cottages. Bamboo Porch Curtains; the sort that give a wealth of shade and yet permit a breath of air— handy when needed ; out of the way when not in use. - Cottage Crockery, different %om other kinds because it s cheaper. Decorated dinner sets, two colors, $5.98. Toilet sets, three colors, $2.45. ^Tumblers, 2 cents each. Fine Carlsbad China ice cream sets, 13 pieces, $1.98 .—worth $3.00 per set. Guess you'll find this to be the PEST crockery store you ever traded at, everything looks that way. ,* if r fev- .«iv : ' MESS TIDE RISING The Trade Outlook Contiunes Its Ycry Rapid Improvement. . GREAT DEMAND F0JJ MONEY, the Ups and Downs of Wheat Prices—The Cotton Mills Are Doing Well, "With Satisfactory Orders Ahead—The failures of the Week. , NEW YORK, June 8.—R. G. Dun & Co's weekly review of trade says: The tide of business is rising, even as it was falling just two years ago, with surprising rapidity. The gain has gono so far and so fast in some branches that the more conservative fear it may not be maintained. But tjie period of dullness which comes in eaoh market after an unusual rise brings as yet nothing like a corresponding decline. Industries gain much, halt or fall back a little and then gain once more. The demand for consumption steadily increases as the employment and wages of the people increase. Demand for money expands, one bank' reporting 29 per cent larger discounts for the oountry and another 23 per oent more commercial loans than a year ago, and all bub two report some gaim One serious question remains, whether the erops will be full enough to sustain a large business. But the worst reports today ar& better by far than the estimates reoently ourrent. Wheaf rose X cents, fell back 2 with realizing, and has again risen 8, with western estimates of a crop 80,000,000 bushels smaller than last year. It is pertinent to remember that official and most unofficial reports down to a late period last fall put the yield about 80,000,000 bushels lower than it is now known to have been. There is neither holding back by farmers nor anxious haste in purchasing by foreigners, to-support belief in scarcity. Corn doses 1 oent higher, and pork has -risen 26 cents per barrel, though lard has fallen 20 cents per 100 pounds. Cotton declined an eighth with better weather at the south, but excitement and prices rose again with the report of only 11.6 per cent deorease in aoreage. Much greater deorease had been called certain, but condition is reported less favorable than last year. With a tenth smaller yield per aore, arid acreage 11.6 per cent less than last year, the yield would still oxoeed 7,700,000 bales, whioh, w*th heavy stocks carried over, would forbid the idea of famine. But a late crop is the more exposed to injury. June began with 9,553,393 bales already in sight, and 3,302,350 American remaining in commercial stocks, while European spinners held Mayl over 1,000,- 000 bales, according to Ellison. Cotton and Knit Goods. Cotton mills are doing well, with very satisfactory orders already for prominent lines, and the market is strong, with occasional further advances. In knit goods there is also some improvement, and higher prices for yarn, though prices have been cut in some kinds of hosiery. The effort to end the Olneyville strike was not wholly successful, and in a few other woolen mills strikes have ocourred, but tho demand for goods looks better, and a fair start has been made in reorders for fall goods. Iron pushes upward like the great buildings into which so muoh of it goes, and the advance in finished products has become general. Of structural steel 12,600 tons were turned out in May by the Homestead works, broking the record, and prices rise to 1.3 cents for beams and 1.2 for angles. The eastern bar association has raised the price of refined iron to 1.1 cents, and the Amalgamated association demands of Pittsburg and western makers a change of wages with 1.1 cents as the basis. Coke producers are said to have substantially agreed upon sales by an agency and allotment of output and an advance in price to $1.50 or higher. In exchanges, the gain over last year is 27 per cent, though the decrease compared with 1892—tho latest year of full business after May—is 9.7 per cent. Railroad earnings for May are 7.4 por cent larger than last year, a better gain than in any previous month, but the decrease from 1893 is 13.9 per cent, and on substantially the same roads was 12.6 for April, 12.9 for Maroh and 15.4 if or February, a ouriously uniform deorease. Failures for the week have been 195 in the United States, against 216 last year, and 25 in Canada, against 40 last year. A British "Steamer Ashore. QUEENSTOWN, June 8.—The British steamer Davaur is ashore on Brigg's reef, this ooast. Four hundred of her passengers have been landed by the boats of the coast guard. The steamer lies in an easy position and will probably be floated. KUSIHOTWTHtUSJAlUIiratEJIMSEIMIIEiyila MLHD ScA2K.XFIA.FINE THE AMERICAN TNOEBWAC YCOO RCUOM UPASNJYb S UCCESSOR. ABSOLUTELY PURE '. THE OLD RELIABLE Has stood tho Tost of Tlma MORE SOLD THAN ALL OTSHEB BRANDS COMBINED THE SILVERINGS' PLANS. . They Will Have a National Monetary Qa|l» vention No Matter What Happens. SPRINGFIELD, Ilia., June 8.—In an interview regarding the future of silver Democrats, Chairman W. H. Hinriohsen of the state Democratic oentral committee' says the silver convention of Wednesday was a starter for further procedure. He says work on a national policy opmmences with the Demooratio party of Illinois baoking free silver. The national committee vpilLfce asked to call a monetary convention" If this is refused, the several state committees will be asked to act with Illinois in holding a national convention, no matter hoW few participate. Delegates will be sent from eaoh state to the conference, whioh will'be the same as the one held here Wednesday. "The Democrats of Illinois are not alone in this matter," said Mr. Hinriohsen. "The movement will purify the party, and the gold men will be in a hopeless minority and can only stand aside. Ninety per rent of tho -party is for silver. "Tho gold wing of th§ party iff ridiculously small. There is not a county in the state in which they are hot outnumbered. "This movement is dangerous to the Republican party. Fully 30 per cent of tho Republican party in Illinois are fos free silver. IKTEEHATIOITAL ATHLETICS. Press Comments on the Oxford-Cambridge Challenge to Ya^p arid Harvard. LONDON, June 8.—Great interest is taken here in the prospeots of an international athletio contest between the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge and teams from American universities. The first iiews of the matter was published here today,, though it had been sent by cable to papers in the United.States yesterday morning. The St. James Gazette says: *'Ifc^svlJl do good to tho universities of both countries and help to produce a friendlier feeling on both sides of the Atlantio." - The Pall Mall Gazette, in the course of , a column editorial on the subject, remarks: "There will be additional interest in the meeting in view of the London Athletio. club fixture, and we shall thus have international contests which should enable the athletes of both countries to take thorough stock of each cither's capacities." After alluding to the benefit of- suoh oontestsj the paper continues: '' Every spectator of the contests between Oxford and Yale was struck by the manly spirit In which the Americans bore the barest of bare defeats. We are not ashamed to say that this association of youth with youth may help to shape tho relationships of tho tvsto peoples. " A Prominent Engineer Dead. ROCHESTEB, June 8.—John D. Fay, formerly a prominent engineer and surveyor, died at his home here, aged 80 years. He was employed on many of the largest bridges built during tho last half century. Mr. Fay was sent to Nicaragua by Commodore Vanderbilt in 1849 to survey a route for a ship canal, and the line he reo-ommended was the same as that of the present canal. ft _____ A Case Involving Millions. SARATOGA, June 8.—Case No. 525 on the calendar of the court of appeals, whioh will be reached, it is believed, before the court takes its summer recess, involves the vast sum of S3,300,000. It is the appeal of the New York and Northern railroad from a decision in favor of the Farmers' Loan and Trust company for a foreclosure,of the second mortgage against tho railroad company.

FERNANDINA, Fla.. Jun.e 8.—The master stroke of the Cuban revolutionary movement in this country will occur within 30 days. The principal leaders of this party in the United States gathered at Jacksonville a few days ago, but later quietly slipped over here, $ook carriages and went to Ocean Beach, where they ( stopped at the Strathmore hotel. From an adjoining room a correspondent overheard the whole of tibo Beliberations, which began at 8 p. m. and pasted until a late hour. The six men toho composed this revolutionary board were Carlos M. Beoes-pedas, Gonzale de Quesada, Colonel En-rlque. Collazo, Lieutenant Thomas Collazo and two prominent oitizens of Fernan-dina, who have appeared conspicuously before tbe.put}lio on former oooasions in connection with the Ouban oause. The party gathered arounjd a large table on which were spread rinmerous charts of Cuba, the adjacent territory and the United States coast line from Charleston to a point far down the peninsula of Florida. As appeared from the conversation, most of the expeditions heretofore had gone t from Santo Domingo, but the board decided that the next big effort must be from the United States coast south of Charleston, not only because of the necessary character and strength of the expedition, but beoause of innumerable bays, sounds and rivers in which a fleet conlu with care hide or repel a muoh stronger foroe. A Shrewd Plan. A fleet of light draft could go unqtgilced through Bahama ohannela and then at night make short njuhs for the northorn coast of Ciuba, wher£ there are many bays easy of access for an expedition and poorly guarded. Suoh aji expedition was reoently conducted by tho yaoht Corona, Which sailed from Satilla river, Georgia, some weeks agfi, aqjl rpade a landing in a bay near Glbaw^ AU this was preliminary. Then came plans, and so far as completed at that sitting they were as ffollows: That wheraai all plans for carrying forward the insurrection had hitherto work'ed most satisfactorily., the eastern half of the island vharl risen, the western half was ripe fpr rebellion and tho Spanish opposition was grow* ing weaker owing to the terrific ravages of yeilow fev.er and to disease from bad food supplied the Spanish army, therefore now had oome the time for a tremendous effort which should carry a great expedition from the United States to Cuba. The consulting bpard decided the expedition should be made ready at onoe ^ that it should sail from some point between Brunswick,- Ga., and Maypojt, Fla.; that it should be commanded by Cblondl Enrique Callazo,' the war scarred veteran of 1868 and 1878, jind that the fleet should be guarded by three newly built torpedo boats of the latest pattern and of great speed and manned by experienced seamen. Where tl.Q Army Will Come From. Lieutenant Thomas Callazo is to be the staff officer, and Colonel Callazo's a'rpajl army is to bo recruited from the Cubans in the United States and picked up Americans from southern states last mentioned. Men already collected by Henry Brooks, who is to accompany the expedition as a member of Collazo's staff, are also' to be enrolled. Collazo is to lgnd tho expedl: tlon at some point in the province of Puerto Principe, where forces conneoted by Gomez and Marti will co-operate. Th^ expedition is to land in Cuba within 30 days. In addition to this plan of operation, the followin'g general information was gleaned during the deliberations: That the provinoe of Pinas del Rio has ris§n and fchatjihe insurgents have made more progress in the present rising of three months' duration than was made in seven years commencing 1868. That it is believed that within a month the whole island will be in arms for the Cuban oause, and that Captain General Campos, commanding the Spanish forces, is exerting every effort to be recalled to Madrid before the arrival of the disaster which he believes is sure to overwhelm Spanish arms in Cuba very soon. Moreover, that Jose Marti will be ill Florida within the next ten days; ^ IJI: B41N itro WALL STREETS, N0RWA1K, SIP iilSf: - 7SOT' TALLOW—Dull; city, 4J^c.; country, 4%c.

LONDON, June 8.—The Times in an editorial leader upon the subject of the* extension of the Cuban insurrection and the reported movements of tho American filiV busterers says that the attitude of the American government is diplomatically cor'root, but that inucfh sympathy with the Cuban rebels is $aily noticeable among the American people. Probably the retention of Cuba by Spain is a mefe quegtien of justifiable pride and sentiment. It Is a pity, however, that Spain makes no attempt to harmonize the interests of the population of Cuba wfth those of its rulers. The result is chronic discontent and ever reouiring revolts. This is the real explanation of the fact that'the insurgents have the sympathy and the financial help of tho industrial" population at largo on the is. land.
