A Stock Exchange houses that had been paying their curb representatives $50 a week have reduced the salaries to $25, and the men Havo not objected being glad to get that sum. Only men on the curb Are making Money enough to live on. The veterans of the curb Are in a measure pleased by this gradual elimination a for it is taking from the Market what Are known As a Wildcat Quot traders Pien who come there to make Money any Way and with any Stock.
