TITLES ARE REWARDS. Hen. Accept Tuem ?lecatiae They Con? fer JDlstlQcllun and Individuality Upon the Poaaeaaor. Henry Laboucbere, member of the British parliament and editor of Lon? don Truth, is moved to decry earthly houors and dignities after this manner: "We live for a speck of time in an eternity whiali lias no time. We. have a name by which we are known as a accessary consequence of our individ? uality. But what pleasure can there be In being called in this speck of time tither My Lord or Sir John by the fmitft worms that happen tobe existing dur? ing our brief lives? What pleasure, too, can there be going about bedizened with ribbons like a prize cow? The cow would prefer a good meal to the rib? bons?so would I." Before pursuing this commentary any further it is safe to say that Mr. La? boucbere is not insensible to distinc? tion. He would not be anEnglishmao of his class and generation if he were.

MARKET REPORTS SEW YORK STOCK MARKET. SEW YORK, Dee. 9?Today's ses? sion of the stock exchange was an animated one, due in gTeat part to tin continued demoralization among some of the industrials. The weakness of sugar spread a contagion through the industrial list. The stock fell to 14.1% before the appearance of the bank Ftatment and the covering movement by the bears which followed the publi? cation rallied the price to above 144. to? gether with the whole market. That there has been a wholesale eon traction of loans all week has been pal? pable in the stock market and thai ac? tual new loans by the few banks hold? ing the surplus reserve can have offset, the contraction so far as to bring the hitter down to $695.r>00 was skeptically regarded by the speculative public. "Under tic- belief that the vagaries of the average system of computation clouded tic- results in the statement, the market closed with pressure to soli in full force again.

THE BREAD WE EAT. Bread Irom Whole Mem Thought :o lie More Nourishing; Than That from White. It is commonly supposed that whole? meal bread is more nourishing tluiu ordinary white bread because it con? tains a higher proportion of nitro? genous and mineral substances. Hut. us we have frequently pointed out. the nitrogenous value of a given food is not necessarily indicated by an empirical chemical analysis. Not all nitrogenous ?substances are feeding stuffs, and fur Iher, it does not follow that the quanti? ty of food partaken of is the quantity of food assimilated. Iu other words, eat? ing is not necessarily feeding. There are many substances containing a very high proportion of nitrogen which are valueless as food stuffs, and ou the con? trary there are many edible materials which contain a comparatively small proportion of nitrogenous substances, which, however, are completely avail? able for nourishing the organism. We now know that it is not enough for chemical analysis to reco...

That there is still a large arid aggres? sive bear party in the market was evi? dent. Their tactics were moderately successful, in the morning, especially in the eases of Tennissee ' oal and Met? ropolitan Street Railway, -which were foiled down 5% and ">n respectively.
