But the local trac? tion stocks continued to reflect a decid? edly uneertai frame of mind. Brooklyn Transit refused to go up more than a point and slipped down below last night's level. The extreme detdine was 5 points and even with a final rally on covering by phorts, its net lo?s is 3 points. 'Metropolitan fared better and has a gain of over 2. The other New York city stocks fell off in sympathy with Brooklyn Transit and the stocks in the Flower group were inclined to weakness all around. The early advance was normally sympathy with the hope expressed inj tome quarters that the Transvaal ques? tion would find a peaceful solution af-| ter all. Earlier gains had been very generally wiped out when the bank statement appeared. The first effect of the statement was a rally due to the buyi...

THE ORIGIN OF MINT JUEIPS. The press agent oC a road house near Covlngton, Ky., is sending out a story that the mint julip was born there in the presence of John G. Carlisle and J. C. S. Blackburn. This is a fiction which the New York AVorkl says, as a conscientious news? paper, it cannot permit lo be fastened upon ignorant minds. It is a perversion of history. It represents as a merely modern invention an institution of the South dating back to ?'the good old colony times." In one of his books the historian Me Master quotes from the diary of an Englishman who traveled in Virginia early in the eighteenth century, and printed his impresions. Even his un? cultivated and prejudiced English pol *>te could not criticise the mint jnllps dainty deliciousness. 'but he did crit? icise the Virginians of that ancient time for imbibing to'o many of those seduc? tive concoctions. Thus history itself records that the mint julep was a cherished adjunct of Virginian life before ever Washington w...
