THE GRAIN MARKET.
Liverpool, May 19. Wheat opened
easier influenced by the weaker Amer
ican cables yesterday, and prices were
to lower. Following the opening
there was further pressure In the May
on realizing, and values further declin
ed to , with the undertone weak.
Pressure at this time was due to re
ports of general rains through the
wheat belt of Russia, Russia offering
freely. Crop advices from India, Aus
tralia and Argentine are favorable, and
the demand for cargoes has abated,
with the continent quiet. The lighter
Argentine shipments than were expect
ed, as well as light shipments from
Australia were offset by rains In Rus
sia, and expectations of liberal Russian
shipments. At 1:30 p. m. the market
waa weak and to lower than yes
terday. The corn market opened lower,
further declined , with the undertone
easy. Selling waa due to freer Ameri
can offers, poor spot demand and weak
ness in American spit grade.

Chepstow, England., May 19 The
gang of workmen who have been en
gaged for months excavating In the
mud of the River Wye have now
practically uncovered the timbers be
neath which Dr. Orville W. Owens
claims are buried Baconian relics.
The timbers form a bulkhead such
as is usually erected to hold the foun
dation for bridge piers, the compart
ments being filled with broken rocks.
Most of this rock has now been re
moved. While Dr. Owen Is still optimistic
about finding evidence to prove that
Bacon was the author of the Shake

Kansas City, Mo., May 19. Fire,
which for an hour yesterday afternoon
endangered the entire Kansas City
stock yards and the Live Stock Ex-
change building, destroyed sheep pens
covering an area a block square, burn
ed sheep estimated to number 1,000,
and partly destroyed two mule barns.

flames, but was saved. A new fire star

FIRE DRIVE5 BT Wljru.
The fire started In a fertilizer plant
at the south end of the yards and was
swept into the sheep pens before a
high south wind. Many of the sheep
were guided In lanes and driven to
safety in other parts of the yards. One
goat was seen leading 75 sheep to
safety through an open gate. Thirty
goats, which were need to lead the
sheep to the packing houses, perished.
From the sheep pens the fire swept
to a row of mule barns. Several thous
and mules were turned out and saved.
Thousands of spectators who thronged
the streets, stock lanes and fences were
in danger of their lives when the mules
stampeded. The frightened animals
were finally headed Into a stock pen.
SCHOOL HOTJSE AFIRB.
Sparks from the burning pens set fire
to a school building five blocks away.
The pupils already had been removed.
The school building was saved. Tops
of trolley poles were burned off and
live wires sputtering in the streets
added to the danger to the spectators.
At 4 o'clock, one hour and ten min
utes after it broke out, the fire was
under control. The damage is estima
ted at less than $50,000.
