II WAGNER'S REVIEW il
Closing Stock Letter.
New York, Spt 17. Irregularity
was the keynote of today's market,
due, as we view it, largely to the
fact that the technical position is not
as strong as it was. There has nat
urally been gradual retirement of
short contracts all through the recent
advance, and the market misses this
sustaining influence. Today's devel
opments were unimportant; the Read
ing meeting, to be held late this after
noon, is eagerly looked forward to
in view of rumors of a possible divi
dend increase. The Rock Island is
sues were conspicuous for their weak
ness, a not unnatural consequence of
the heavy damage to corn in the
territory served by the system. Talk
of a Union Pacific distribution con
tinues, with nothing definite as yet
available. As we view it, the con
servative policy would be to buy into
the market only on week spots.
MORNING GRAIN LETTER.
Chicago, 111., Sept. 17. Wheat cables
higher due to a lessening of Cana
dian offers. The weather map Is all that
can be asked for. Good rains in win

Canadian northwest except rain at

Cash Wheat Not Burden.
Chicago. Sept. 17. We doubt
whether cash wheat will ever prove
burden on this crop. The quality
is fine and recommends itself to the
elevator man, capitalist, miller, etc.
The usual risks due to poor quality
are eliminated. We consider this ce
real worth more monev than it is
selling for now.
Country advices on corn are very
emphatic that offerings have dried up.
Seventy-five per cent of primary re
ceipts of corn have been received in
Chicago lately. A light movement of
old corn will soon be In evidence, and
unless the weather Is exceptionally fa
vorable those who expect an early
movement of new corn will be disap
pointed. We believe in placing pur
chasing resting orders. Oats are too
low as compared with corn.
Our Toledo office wires: "Clover
higher, some 6horts covered. Offer
ings light Receipts disappointing.
Only 250 bags. Situation about un
changed." Provisions: We see sufficient rea
sons for purchasing now, and are is

Cotton: Believe in higher prices
for cotton ultimately based upon the
supply and demand situation.
Stocks: A wave of bull speculation
is said to be brewing in the copper
shares. Amalgamated crossed 80

steady, being influenced by the late
steadiness in America yesterday and
the fact that prominent firm here is
buying Manitobas. Canadian offers
are less pressed for sale and Indian
offers are firmer. The advance was
checked by the French official report
and expectations of large Russian ship
ments this week.
Corn opened steady and later declin

WEATHER CONDITIONS. !
Rains have fallen on the gulf coast
and the eastern Rocky mountain
slope and in the territory from the
Missouri and Mississippi valleys to
the Atlantic coast, due to an area of
relatively low pressure which this
morning extends from the west gulf
sections to the lake region, and to
Ihe southwestern low which remains
over Arizona and California. At
Dodge, Kan, the rainfall amounted to
1.S2 Inches. It Is unusually warm in
California, a temperature of 102 de
grees having been observed yester
day at San Francisco which is the
highest on record for that station,
while a reading of 100 degrees was
reported from Los Angeles. High
pressures and cool temperatures are
noted on the eastern Rocky mountain
elope, with frosts from Wyoming and
western North Dakota southward to
northern New Mexico. Continued un
settled weather is Indicated for this
vicinity, with probably showers to
night or Thursday and without any
important change In temperature.

Diamond Head, that monumental ele
vation of lava which stands out so
prominently on the Honolulu side of
the lovely island of Oahu. Hawaii, is
the one and only original crater In the
world which Is being devoted to the
use or the army of a great power.
The island of Oahu Is the key to the
Pacific, and Uncle Sam carries that
key on a chain in his capacious pocltet
At any time war breaks out Uncle
Sam's hand, which has not lost its
cunning, will go to that pocket with
the swiftness of a western sheriff, and
the result will be a roar of guns which
will be heaT around the world. The
roar will be contributed to by the guns
of Fort Rnger, which are at the base
of Diamond Head on the landward
From Diamond Head," called by poets
the Lion of Hawaii." to Pearl Harbor,
named by newspaper writes "the Gib
raltar of the Pacific," there is a chain
of forts which makes Oahu one of the
greatest fortresses in the world. When
In Honolulu the writer had the pleas
ure of working with Albert Pierce
Taylor, who has been spoken of as
"the recognized literary authority on
things pertaining to Pearl Harbor and
the defenses of Hawaii." He said on
"Uncle Sam has declared to - the
world that be is on guard in the Pa
cific. At Pearl Harbor is Fort Kame
hameha. with its battery of twelve
inch guns: at the mouth of Honolulu
harbor will be a battery of small guns;
at Fort De Russy. Waiklki. a battery
of fourteen inch guns, while at Dia
mond Head a battery of eight mortars
has been manned for some few years.
Within the extinct crater of Diamond
Head Gibraltar-like galleries bnve
been constructed, and in one of them
an observatory has been established,
The fire control for all the Oahu coast
batteries has been located in this gal
lery. From this statloo the fire of the
guns of all the forts can be directed by
the electric telegraph. The guns of
Pearl Harbor cross those of Diamond
Head and with the batteries between
make a veritable wall of steel."
After inspecting the guns at Fort
Ruger two of us, with a soldier guide,
walked to the entrance of the gallery
which has been bored through the lava
and sandstone which compose the
steep sides of the crater of Diamond
Head. A sentry barred the way. The
permit was produced and proved the
The heavy Iron door at the entrance
the volcanic passage was swung
back. and. with a soldier In front and
another in tbe rear, the visitors started
down the gallery. A single narrow
gauge track ran the entire length of
tbe passage. Ou this steel small trucks
had been pushed by the soldiers, who
loaded and unloaded the debris which
army comrades bad dug from the walls
of the crater. The ties were broken' in
places, and tbe guide issued a warning
to step carefully.
On first stepping into the gallery tho
darkness, after tbe tropical sunlight
was of the kind that Milton described
a3 visible. Only a few steps had been
taken before tbe light at tbe far fend
of tbe.gallery was easily seen.
Instead of tbe barren lava botv'l.
'hard as flint and as smooth as glass,"
as the picture man so picturesquely
puts it tbe inside of the crater was
found to be grass covered, with trees
and bushes standing here and there,
which .drew their moisture from the
liquid aunshlne." as tbe Honolulu peo
ple charmingly describe tbe rain.
The guide pointed out tbe observa
tory high up on the Ewa side of the
crater from which officers direct the
shooting by tbe men who man tbe big
guns at the fort outside tbe crater.
Those men never see tbe target at
which they aim far out at sea. Tbe
projectiles from the high powered guns
pass over the crater, and by telephone
from the observatory tbe men learn
whether they have made a bit or miss.
They generally score a hit.
In the event of a war involving the
United States on the PaclSc tbe crater
of Diamond Head may indeed prove
the Lion of Hawaii," as Frances
Bent Dillingham, a Honolulu poet has
described It and "if once stirred his
paw could sweep a navy to its death.
If once aroused his roar would soon
be heard across the sea and echoed
from the sky." Harold Sands in Los.

Turning the Poppy Juice Into Dried
Cakes For Export,
I Persian opium Juice Is sold In large
copper vessels by the grower to the
merchant, in whose hands It undergoes
several processes in order to preserve
it from fermentation and decay. On
'sunny, fine, hot days the Persian cara
Jvanseries, where opium dealers have
their magazines, present an interesting
'picture. The Juice is brought out to
be prepared into cakes for export.
! On large wooden boards, two and a
half feet long and' one and a half feet
.broad, the sticky mass is spread out
with spade-like tools to permit tbe
W8ter it contains to evaporate. E
perienced workers move from board to
'board, turning over the layers every
'now and then, that the heat and sun
'may dry up the exposed surfaces and
'render the opium fit for making into
cakirs. In favorable weather this proc-
'ess takes only an hour or so. and tbe
opium is ready for tbe next manlpula
I It Is now scraped off and Is rolled
into stiff, dough-like Iwnps and banded
to a man who divides it into smaller
portions, weighing one pound each,
which be passes on to niolders, by
whom they are pressed into the wood
en forms and then laid on a large
board for tbe final drying process.
When this is completed the cakes are
rolled rip in red paper imported spe
cially from China. One hundred and

Englishmen Said to Take a Delight In
Wearing Them Publicly.
Writing from South Africa about the
sights to be seeu in that country, E.
V. Howe in his monthly says:
"On the line between Bulawayo and
Salisbury there are a good many
towns, including one built around the
best gold mine in Rhodesia. And bow
the people turned out to see the train
come in! At one place we estimated
that there must have been 500 around
Trains travel over the line only two
or three times a week, and people
seem to come from great distances in
the country to see the trains go by.
But between the stations there were
millions of acres of land as wild as It
was In the days of Adam.
Early in the morning our English
passengers walked about in pajamas
when we stopped at stations. English
men love that sort of thing. At Vic
toria falls they visited the Kala forest
in pajamas, and in Johannesburg I was
told that on Sundays and holidays pa
Jamas are worn around bouses and
yards until lunch time.
Englishmen show their pajamas so
much that I cordially hate that partic
ular form of nightdress. Englishmen
have the same passion for running
around in pajamas that American boys
have for running around in baseball

The eye does not take in an object

irregular manner, never twice alike.
