The feature of the stock markets today is the jiurchasing fif small lots of shares for investment, and that is a feature that is highly to be encouraged. The man with a few hundred dollars or a few thousand winch are lying in the bank, earning only three per cent cannot do better than purchase gilt edged stocks with the money which will net hiin from five to eight per cent., at present prices prici^s and will surely ri.se in value when the present money stringency is over. Those too, who are hoarding money in other ways than in the savings banks cannot do better for themselves or for the country than purchase stocks with it. One of the features of the present crisis tliat has attracted a good deal of attention has been this same hoarding of money both on this side and in Europe. Gold and bank notes have been put away somewhere at home or in safety vaults and thus a large amount of circulation has been with-dran from use. It is encouraging to learn that some of thi.'S is returning to public use. as it will greatly help to relieve tlie stringency.-Montreal Witness. WANT A LOT OF TIES.
