THE GRAIN MARKET.
Liverpool, May 12. Wheat was very
firm' at the opening, in sympathy with
the sharp advance in American mar
kets yesterday, and values were 8 to
higher. There was further good
cutside speculative support, with shorts
nervous. Reports from Russia regard-
ling the wea'hor conditions were bull
j ish. and plate offers are firmly held,
with lighter Argentine shipments this
wrek and firmer Australian offers,
with the continent still bidding freely
tor cargoes in all positions. There is
a general tightening up of all offers
hi're. flue to the change in weather
conditions in southern Europe. Follow
ing the opening the distant months ad
vanced a further '4 to from the
opening. Later and just before mid
day there was reaction and prices de
clined from the high closing ,,. This
' decline was due to realizing on talk
' horo rf ll f-Q Piieian c: h f it m on r e thiu
week, which brought smaller demand
for higher Australian cargoes. At 1:30
p. m. the market was steady and to
higher than yesterday.
Corn opened '4 higher in sympathy
with America and the strength in
wheat. Later the market was dull at

Big IVTeiYs Little Checks
Adherence to formality makes
many apparently ridiculous situa
tions. For the man who has a bank
account the undeniable value of a
canceled check as a voucher for pay
ment is recognized.
Illustrative of this- is the case of
the 1-cent check drawn by F. P.
Kane, deputy controller of the cur
rency in November, 1907, in favor
of A. E. Pistel.
To the man with the bank account
who is not only known to be good
for the amount anfl who is well
known to one so lowly, say, as a cab
man, the check may come in handy
to make a good suit. Just as
much aa a good tailor to cut
it to your exact measure.

as a "friend indeed." This must
have been the way in which Theo
dore Roosevelt looked at the matter
when on the night of Jan. 5, 1905,
he was caught at a big reception
without a sou in his pockets. Of
course, there were undoubtedly any
number of persons who attended that
same reception who would have ac
counted it the highest honor to have
lent to the then president of the
1'nited States the small sura of 50
It happened that at the same re
ception Colonel Cecil Lyone, one of,
President Roosevelt's closest per
sonal and political friends, was a
guest, but Colonel Roosevelt did not,
turn to him for the price of cab
hire from the embassy of England to
the Willard hotel, where he was to
attend a banquet, a distance of less
than half a mile.
Instead he rushed to the clerk's
desk and on one of his own per
sonal checks, drew for 50 cents on
the Riggs national bank and paid the1
chauffeur. The check for 50 cents
has never been cashed, aa it was pre-1
sented to the officials of the bank!
by the cab company as a souvenir.
There are also times when a rich!
man is situated as was the tramp'
who had the $1,000 bill and starved
to death before he could get any
one to cash It.
This was the case when John Hays
Hammond, who has more money
than some of the biggest farmers
have wheat, wanted to "make
change" in settling a large account.
Mr. Hammond had to meet a bill of;
something more than $2,000. He
had the exact sum minus five cents
and a $500 treasury note over. He
didn't know how to get the change.:
It was after banking hours, and he'
wanted to leave Washington at once,1
so he paid the bill he had with the
cash he had plus a check for five
cents, and had the $500 treasury
note left to carry him along on the
first leg of his journey.
"Then, of course, the check has to
be used no matter what amount by
the corporation which is lucky
j enough to have a dividend to pay.
j Tbia was the case when the Key York
and Western Oil company declared a
dividend on Nov. 28, 1905. and paid
by check to one of its stockholders,!
