corn by recent leaders closed la6t week
and is the main feature to consiaer
today. Looks as if a very low Snow
report is expected on corn and his re
marks of last week were a warning.
He will evidently cut Nebraska and
Missouri severely and give Kansas
very small condition. Eastern states
will also drop. He may guess the
thing at 62 to 63 per cent His last
guess was 65. Inglis is far more
cheerful, but the Snow figures are the
ones that count now. Wheat and oats
liquidation is regarded as completed.

seeks a season low point in September
or October. It is a time of year when
the European stocks are exhausted and
she prepares for winter by absorbing
Weather since Aug. 18 has been
mainly dry, with small rains. The
rains of August ran Aug. 10 to 18.

proves the corn disaster.

Some one with a rather hazy knowl

the disappearance of the Readers'!
Guide from the public library, accord

to the board at its regular meeting
held last evening.
Of just what value the book can be
to anyone outside of the library ref
erence room is a matter of conjec
ture and the members of the board
are puzzled to know why unauthorized
borrowers of the books have turned
their attention to this department In
case the missing copy does not turn
up a new one will be purchased. Lit

when the annual retreat of the Fran
ciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Con

profession of two novices and recep

Before the gospel was read the Rev.
Father Hugolinus questioned the nov

were about to' make and spoke of its
seriousness. Having received a firm
answer from each saying she wished
to follow this state of life, he then
proceeded with the ceremonies, assist
ed by Rev. Joseph Kelly of Molina,
Father Hugolinus gave a short sermon
on the dignity of the vocation. The
