wharf, at the feot of Randolph street,
to go aboard ship and coal up and do
other necessary things. But a very
agreeable surprise was in store for the
boys, thanks to ('apt. W. F. Purdy. who
was having the ship coaled by 'long
shoresmen, and the boys got away from
a very disagreeable task.
Upon going aboard, we met the Mo
line division, X. M. I., and the boys
reiort having had the most enjoyable
cruise in their experience .having had
practically no rough weather and con
sequently no seasickness. The mesa is
said to be belter than ever before.

It Leads the World, Says a European
"There is no wl.cat aiii where in the
world so good as Kaunas wheat," said
John M. Turner, rlour men-hunt of
Hamburg nnd Ioiuloii. who, with his
business "partner, S. Gruner, necutly

convention f the National Millers' fed
eration, says the Kansas City Star.
"Everywhere in Europe," Mr. Turner
euntiaued, "American wheat stands
high in the estimation of the people,
but Kansas leads Hie world. There's
notluug like it, no other wheat with so
mueb gluten, so much muscle und
nerve building stuff in It. It has be
emue so popular on the continent as
well as in Great Britain that flour deal
ers have to carry It regardless of the
pri-e or profit.

Denmark. Holland, Great Britain, Bel

Russian wheat. It's poor stuff. They
don't clean it. You tun find almost
everything in It rye. eorn, oats, tacks,
.irees of wood, nails and other prop
erty that doesn't lwloug there. Euro
pean buyers have complained bitterly
against this Russian wheat. They
want American grain, American flour,
und a wonderful market is being built
up for it. American flour in Berlin to
day is worth 1 American money about
$0.6 to $7 for a hundred kilos, which
Is 220 pounds. In other wordu, we pay
for American flour nearly the same
price yon pay hi Kansas City, plus
the freight. The freight rat'-s. steamer
