Cnicago. Oct. 14. Balkan war news
seems to be the princiya' wneat factor.
P.ulgatia and Servia nave apparently
preparfd for a struggle with great de
liberation. Austria is nervous. Just
what Russia intends is a guess. Se
curities are already seriously afffected
aNnc with business in eastern Europe.
The Russo-Jap war beginning iu 19u4
, was accompanied with a 15-cent a-i-
vance in w heat, though the war was
! in the orient. While the 1904 situa
I tion was strong, the newspapers allud
' ed to the war as the leading factor in
the advance. The Halkan mix-up has
excited and quickened domestic and
foreign wheat demand, and has stirred
! up shorts.
! FuTther wheat strength is indicated.
; Much of the immediate fear of the
! northwest big crop has evnporated.
The size of the 1912 crop of corn is
1 secondary to the impossibility of cre
lating any easy cash corn situation un
til late In Iiecember or ear:y in Janu
ary. Cash grain men say oats are in
a strong position and should advance. ;
Liverpool wheat comes 178 to Z j
Liverpool December, figuring 7.11 '
versus 7.4 Vj on Sept. 30.
Mav wheat at 9S is up 3"4 cents
! since Sept. 30.
; The advance in wheat cables over
the week-end is the biggest in years,
! and probably precedes a series of ex
cited and brrader markets cn this side.
! The entire list, including provisions,
will likely !e affected. Tr" Liverpool ad-
! vance .suggests that con.li'ions in east
ern Eutepe are exceedingly tender as
; regards the larger as well as the small-
i er powers.
New York. Oct. 14 Over the doubte
' holiday ihe important feature has be n
! the t- vc-re decline in tlie foreign mar-
kts. d.ie naturally and primarily to
the Halkan situation. Thi morning
.nieri( in stocks in London are fevr
1 isii, although at this writing stiincthlng
! of a rally is in proeress.
! The supreme ccurt convenes t(jduy.
No derisions are expected.
The immediate future of the market
here will of course be governed by the
ability to absorb foreign salts. Friday
we s I'tneii to be plowing rather lax
in that re?i 'tt. but in this connection
it will be borne in mind that a compar
atively long re tss was directly ahead.
According to Pliny, It Was In Us
Among the Gauls.
Who invented soap? According to
Pliny, soap wns an invention of the
Gauls, who used it for giving a bright
hue to the hair. He also states that
it was employed by the Germans
both as a medicinal and as a cleansing
agent, two kiad- being used hard and
soft There Is reason to believe that
it was Introduced Into Germany by the
Romans, though on this point there is
ome difference of opinion.
