Chicago Grain and Produce.
Chicago. Jan. 9. The bearish effect
of the government crop report of Saturday
hud not worn away when the markets on
change opened this morning.
In the grain pits trading started fairly
active, but prices were lower than on ' Sat
urday. May wheat opened at S3c. The
traders in wheat appeared very nervous
during the first hours of business. Liver
pool was 3'd lower, and local speculators
were pretty gelierally sellers. Alay sold
down to &3c in the first half hour, then
sold up ro ttc and became fairly steady
with little doing. The annual election of
board officers, which was being held today,
absorbed the interest of members largely.
Alay wheat ranged between S5Sic, the
highest point being reached when the visi
ble supply was announced as showing a
decrea.se of f0,000 bushels, which was larger
than was expected. The bulk of the trad
ing was in a small way and done by scalp
ers. Alay closed at S3c.
Corn wjis the most active grain on the
floor and was rather weak. There was a
disposition both to trade and sell short.
The visible supply, too, .showed an in
cre;isc of 10?v000 bushels. .May opened at
54 c, held steady for a while, then weak
ened and closed at JiO.c.
Oats - Future delivery were from (gjc
lower, largeJy on account of the unsettled
condition of the wheat and corn markets.
Alay closed at 313ic.
Provisions There was little doing dur
ing the early part of the session, but
the undertone of the market was never
theless firm. May pork opened at $15.50,
soon advanced to 15.573- and closed at
?15.52K. Lard and short ribs were both
The visible supply of grain on January
7, as compUed by the secretary of the
board of trade, was as follows:
Wheat, 43SS57.1J1 bushels, decrease 504,
5R7 bushels; corn, 0,397,754 bushels, increase
108,224 bushels; oats, 5,002,340 bushels, de
crease S2,171 bushels.
The leading futures ranged as follows:

HUKTUfff JACK RABBITS.
ONE OF THE MOST EXHILARATING
SPORTS KNOWN .OUT WEST. ,
Racing Greyhounds and a Light Fall of
Snow Are Necessary- TboJack Babbit
an Expert at Dodging Description of
Odo of trie most exhilarating sports known
in the west is jack, rabbit .coursing on the
plains. A brace of racing greyhounds held
vvitlia.leash, followed- by a score' or more of
lovers of the sport.on hprseback, start out on
a bracing winter morning, when there is a
light covering of snow pn the ground,, for tha
places where the jack rabbits, are wont to
congregate. The jack rabbit is unknown in
the eastern part of this country. Ho is the
counterpart of the English hare. He is larger
than the common rabbit or "cotton tail." He
has long legs, and in a race is a runner
worthy the attention of the fleetest of grey
hounds. The coursers search in the snow for a
fresh jack rabbit track and follow it up. When
the rabbit is spied the hounds are let loose and
rush after hiin. The whole crowd of horse
men follow after, whooping and yelling and
urging on their horses to the top ot their
The hounds do not .attempt at first to catch
tho rabbit They are too wary for that. They
fcimply try to run him down. The jack rab
bit is an expert at dodging, and the hounds
try to head him off whenever he attempts to
make a sharp turn. At last, by superior
strength and the advantage of two to one,
they succeed in tiring him out, and he falls
an easy victim. Every time a hound heads a
rabbis off it ir. a noint in his favor. Two
points are placed to the credit of the dog !
which catches the rabbit. A referee, mounted j
on a swift, sure horse, leads the followers of ,.
tho dogs and marks the point. In this way
it is decided which hound wins. Stakes of
from ?25 to $100 are usually up on these rates.
AN EXCITING TIME. '
Mr. Alonzo "Williams, who spent several
years in Colorado and is an enthusiastic lover
of tho sport, tells the following story of his
last coursing experience on tho plains:
"We were riding along tho dry bed of an
arroya, and were just coming around a mass
of rocks when we heard a sharp 'hist!' from
Bill. There, not twenty feet ahead of us,
was a big jack rabbit sitting up in front of a
little cave or niche in the rocks. He saw us
and was off like a white streak over tho
rocks. In an instant Bill slipped the leash
from the straining, panting dogs. With a
dash they were off, and the whole yelling
crowd were after them, spurring on their
horses at the top of their speed.
'Tho country was unusually hilly right
?re. Ono minute we would be dashing over
a sharp bluff and down a steep hill. Again
a high hill would shut off froih sight for a
moment the dodging rabbit and the dogs.
Up tho hill we would rush pell-niell and
would get a better view from the top of tho
spirited chae. That was n run long to be re
membered. Tho old rabbit was an unusually
large one, and was apparently possessed of
great toughness of muscle and strength of
lie led the hounds a noble cha?e. It was
fully five minutes before they caught up to
him at all, although Ibey were straining
every nerve. Flora was bounding over the
snow with long leaps, her snout thrust down
almost to the ground. Belle was dashing
along, with head erect and every muscle at
its- greatest tension. The old rabbit was
bounding along on its hind legs, looking like
nothing but a streak of light brown on the
"Finally they caught up with him. Then
Iho fun began. lie circled and dodged and
doubled on his trail time and again until we
began to think tliej- never would catch him.
Now they are right on to him. The old rab
bit makes a sudden dash to the left Flora is
too quick for him. She wheels and drives
him back to his former course. 'Hooray I
scoro one point for Flora!' Everybody cries
onl. Nobody pays any attention to the crj
but. the riders keep up the constant shouting
and yelling, probably as a vent lor tho ex-
. , . a .. .1
citementof the moment. On they go, the
rabbit trying all manner of dodges to shako
off his pursuers. .Now he tries the doubling
dodge. lie wheels quickly and starts bad
between tho two dojrs toward 1 ho horsemen.
XEARIXG THE E.D.
"With a few strides Belle is ahead of him
and sends him back about his business. Tho
rabbit is now beginning to show signs of"
fatigue. He does less running and more
dodging. The dogs are apparently as Iresh
as ever and can run all around him and head j
him otr wherever lie starts to go. But they
can't catch him yet. Ho is too artful and
slippery for them. But he won't last ' long.
His struggles o get free are becoming weaker I
and weaker. He and the Bounds are running,
turning and twisting in every direction. Ac
cording lo the referee's count Flora has now
scored six points and Belle five.
"Suddenly tbo world seemed to turn around
and I found myself lying on my back with
what seemed to be about forty hoofs waving
over my head. The saddle had turned around
on to the littlo bronco's stomach. Ho ran
oil about twenty yards and began to kick
wildly at the saddle, which had novr fallen
down on to his hind legs. A moment later
he had sent the saddle flying into the air and
was off over the plains nt a headlong run.
"I heard a f bout from the men at the foot
of tho hill. I jumped up and, forgetting my
bruises and vanishing pony, saw the finish of
the prettiest raeo it was ever my good for- j
tuno to witness. 1 lie rabbit una maue four
dodges ami each dog ha 1 scored two points,
making the score S to 7 in favor of Flora.
Just 03 I looked up Belle had mado n charge
on the rabbit, thrust her long nose under Ins
left fore lep nnd thrown him in the air. The
two dogs pounced upon him as he fell and in
an instant the rac was over. Belle had won
by a score of 9 to 8." Philadelphia Times.
Indians Increaslsfj Under Civilisation.
At the meeting of tha Friends of the In
dians the other day it was said that the 4,000
Indians who stiil live on reservations in this
state are increasing in number. The popular
impression that our Indians are dying out is,
in fact, incorrect so far as it relates to In
dians who have abandoned migratory life
and become partly or wholly civilized. The
Cherokee of the Indian territory have nearly
doubled in number since 1510, and the rem
nant of the Sia Nations, now settled on farms
in Canada, numbers S.000 souls, and Las been
steadily growim since the tribes abandoned
their wild habits and took to agriculture. To
quit tbo war path and be a -good Indian"
nowadays is conducive to longevity end to
the perpetuity of the red raca. 2Jew Ycrli
