!l WAGNER'S REVIEW II
Closing Stock Letter.
New York, Sept. 15. The stock tone
today has again been quite satisfac
tory to the bulls. Early Europe sold,
it is said, around 20,000, and as there
was not much demand, concessions
During the morning, however, Read
ing proved a strong feature, and the
17-cent metal market caused a very
fair amount of strength in Amalgamat
ed and other coppers. Some of the
speciatiesl also showed pronounced
strength during the day, such stocks
as American Can and Sears giving a
splendid account of themselves. To
our way of thinking, the short inter-
cs-. has been largely reduced; very-
decided gains have been scored by
stocks generally and we cannot see our
way clear to advise following the ad
vance just now.
Morning Grain Letter.
Chicago, Sept. 15. Wheat cables
to ' off. Reflection of large world's
shipments more favorable weather
and crop reports frcm Russia. Weather
map shows light moisture in wheat bel'
and spring wheat belt. Good cash
demand developed again on Saturday,
something unusual for that day; sales
both to domestic mills and exporters.
Northwestern advices confirm our
views on farmers' holding at
titude, especially in Minnesoto.
Primary receipts not as large R
as last year's short crop.
Cash business will be healthy again
on any break. Our views are un
changed. Corn We believe the market is
working itself into an oversold con
dition and advise purchases.
Oats Consider them worth the mon
ey at prevailing discount with corn.
Liverpool, Sept, 15. The easier
American cables and the pressure in
Winnipeg on Saturday caused realizing
in wheat at the opening and following
the opening there was further decline
to on the favorable weather
and crop reports from Russia, with
the weather in the United Kingdom
and France fine. Offers from the east
were larger and cheaper. At 1:30 p.
m. market was dull but easy.
Corn opened higher with strength
in Buenos Aires on Saturday. Later
the closing weakness in America and
a reduced niquiry for parcels caused
some pressure and prices declined .
At 1:30 p. m. the market was dull.
Drift of the Weather.
Illinois Unsettled with rain in
south; Tuesday pjrobably fair. j
Missouri Unsettled with rains in
east; cooler in northwest; Tuesday
Wisconsin Generally fair tonight
and Tuesday; cooler tonight.
Minnesota Fair and cooler, prob
ably frost in low places.
North Dakota Fair tonight and
Tuesday, cooler; probably frost in low
South Dakota Rain; cooler in cen
tral and east; Tuesday fair.

Lower Crop Estimates.
Chicago, Sept. 15. The underlying
strength of the wheat situation is now
asserting itself. Since Sept. 1 sales
cf cash wheat at Chicago aggregate
3,000,000 bushels, mainly for export or
to seaboard exporters. Northwestern
stocks are not increasing as rapidly as
they did a year ago, due mainly to the
excellent demand for flour and mill
Corn felt the influence of the bene
ficial rains over the drouth stricken
districts of the country, some points
in the southwest getting two to four
inches of rain during the closing days
of the week, and final prices show a
decline from those at the finish of a
week ago. We predict a further low
ering cf government crop estimates
and advise investment purchase.
The possibility of Canadian oats im
portation due to tariff arrangement
lsaves this market a two sided affair.
That there is still a few hogs left
in the coun'ry was shown by increased
receipts the past week, and packers
were not disposed to give the provi
sion market as much support as here
tofore. Moderate further decline can
be anticipated. But market later in
the season should score a big advance.
Advise absorbing the January and
Clover 6eed Farmers will be dic
tators. Many sections have largest
crop since 1008. Some sections have
almost a failure. Farmers are hesi
tating about selling at present low
prices. We advise purchase.

The southern storm which remains
'central over northern Louisiana has
been attended by rains from the lower
Mississippi valley eastward to South
Carolina. Showery conditions in the
upper Missouri valley and in a large
portion of the Rocky mountain region
have resulted from barometric depres
sions which are caalr&l over northern
Saskatchewan snd the southern por
tions of Arlxona and California. The
crest of the northeastern high, with
Its cool temperatures, overlies the St.
Lawrence valley and New England,
and light frost is reported from west
ern New York and western Pennsyl
vania. Moderately high pressures pre
vail from Washington and Oregon east
ward to the upper Missouri valley, with
cooler weather in the extreme upper
. Missouri valley and light frost in
western North Dakota. Continued
generally fair weather, without much
change In temperature, is Indicated
for this vicinity tonight and Tuesday.

Sickness and Agony That Livingstons
Endured In Africa.
Writing on David Livingstone, mis
sionary and African explorer, Sir Har
ry H. Johnston says In the British
Geographical Journal: "During the
winter or rainy season of 1868-0 Liv
ingstone was Very HI." He had been
wet times without number and suf
fered from terrible pains in the chest
and pneumonia. He was often semi
delirious and subject to delusions, such
as that the bark of the trees was cov
ered with figures and faces of men.
He thought often of his children and
friends, and his thoughts seemed al
most to conjure them up before him.
For the first time in his life he was
bring carried and could not raise him
8(lf to a sitting position. The Arabs
were very kind to him In his extreme
weakness, but the Tertlcal sun, blis
tering any part of the skin exposed to
it, tried him sorely in the day marches.
"Id July, 1870. his feet were almost
consumed with Irritable, eating ulcers,
pulsating with pain. These sores
were obviously communicated by mos
quitoes from the blood of the wretch
ed slaves who were tortured with
them. Livingstone could fall asleep
when be wished at the shortest notice.
A mat and a shady tree under which
to spread It would at any time afford
him a refreshing sleep. But In his
last years of travel sleep was often
made sad by the realistic dreams of
happy English life from which he wak
ened to find himself ill and consumed
with anxiety that he might not live
to complete his mission.
"After 1SG9 be suffered much from
the results of the decay and loss of
his molar teeth, so that imperfect mas
tication of rough African food induced
severe dyspepsia, and his bodily
strength' weakened under a condition
of permanent malnutrition. Stanley,
by relieving him when be did. gave
him at least two more years of life,
a certain measure of happiness and the
sweet consolation thct he was not for
gotten and that the magnitude of his
discoveries was appreciated."

CUZC0 AND THE INCAS.'
Peru's Anoient City Was on the Plan
of the Roman Camp.
The ancient city of Cuzco, wben fist
viewed by European eyes, was, accord
ing to the best authorities, a great and
wealthy municipality of perhaps 200,
000 souls. How old it was at that time
we have scant means of knowing.
Garcllasso would have us believe that
there were only thirteen Incas In the
royal family line from Manco Capac
to Huayna Capac. Monteslnos, on the
other hand, assures us that the Incas
ruled a thousand years! Which are we
to believe? No written history of the
race exists only the records of the
juipus, those queer knotted strings
which were the Incas sole documents
and for which no archaeologist has as
yet discovered the key, the Rosetta
Cuzco" s original plan was, singularly
enough, that of the Roman camp, a
quadrangle divided by two intersecting
streets Into quarters, with a, gate on
each face and towers at the angles.
The Incas, like the citizens of the
United States, had no more definite
name for their country than Tavan
tlnsuya, the Empire of the Four Prov
inces. The four streets of the capital,
prolonged by great roads, divided It
into four main provinces, each under
the dominion of Its governor. Wben
their people came to Cuzco they lodged
in their own quarter, where they ad'
faered to their national costumes and
the customs of their own province.
The city today retains the same
general plan, its two principal streets
being virtually the old main thorough-
fares, its two eastern ourt 1
