-WAR SHOOTS CHICAGO
WHEAT PRICES SKYWARD
War ran up wheat transactions Tuesday on the
Chicago Board of Trade to a total of nearly 100,
000,000 bushels and shot prices skyward 8 1-4 to
9 1-4 cents. No other day of the Twentieth cen
tury has witnessed trading here that was equally
Alt hough failures were momentarily looked for,
there was none announced.
How hazardous the situation was deemed was
shown by the action of leading firms in demanding
'that all customers put margins of 20 cents a bushel
on every trade.
Stories ol fortunes made and lost today were num
erous, but in most cases were not well verified. The
most specific case of sudden riches was that of a
heretofoie obscure pit trader who actually pocketed
!f2."5.000 which he had netted in an interval of exact
ly five minutes.
llundieds of spectators thronged the galleries on
'change and looked down upon the traders who
struggled and tumbled about in the pits. The up
roar made by the brokers was plainly audible in the
streets surrounding the board and notwithstanding
that the (lay was delightfully cool, it was' notice
able that few if any of the traders in the wheat pit
were not dripping with perspiration.

TRAINING THE IMAGINATION.
To illustrate tho power of imagination a City Hall officer
tells tho story of the artist who had lost his reason and
had been sent to tho asylum. While ho had his wild mo
ments, he was entirely rational much of tho time and fur
nished visitois who stopped to talk to him some conver
sation th.it caused them to tako notice. His fame hoon
spread and everyone who eiiino to the institution requested
an interview with the former artist.
On ono such occasion tho inin.ito was talking, and ap
parently rationally enough with a visitor who said that he
nKo was am artist. Hearing this statement tho resident of
the institution said. to his visitor:
"That reminds mo, I huvo just finished my masterpiece."
"Ts that so?" asked the visitor. "I should like to seo
"You shall," tho artist replied, -and ho disappeared, re
turning in a few moments with a plain strip of canas.
"Turn it around so I can seo it," requested tho visitor
when the canvass was held boforo him.
"Oh, you're looking at tho front of it now can't you see
"Y-yes," lied tho visitor. "What is the titlo?"
