II WAGNER'S REVIEW it
Liverpool, Oct. 7. Wheat:, The
weakness in American cables and the
decline In Buenos Aires was offset
here by the Improved demand for
Canadian wheat and the unfavorable
reports from India regarding dryness
and firmness of holders there and the
opening was unchanged to lower.
Following the opening there was an
advance of on few speculative of
fers and shorts covered. The firm
ness of Hungarian offers and the large
diversion of Russian shipments to the
continent helped the advance. At 1:30
p. m. market was steady and un
changed to higher than yesterday.
Corn opened lower and later de
clined further on smaller inquiry.
Cargoes easy, American cables expec
tations of large arrivals and better
reports from Russia.

Chicago, Oct. 7. Wheat: Set of
bearish statistics looked for on Sat
urday came true yesterday. Wheat
visible showing liberal increase. To
be added to this was late Argentine
; cablegram claiming good rains were
; needed. On the other hand exDorts
and primary movement favored buying
side. Buffalo is emphatic on point
that Canada cannot ship any more
wheat as vessels cannot be unloaded
and sellers must guarantee demurrage
charges as their wheat must be
shipped before the close of navigation.
This does away with the fears of
Canadian wheat coming to this coun-
9itry. even in bond. We believe prices
down to a figure at which purchases
can be made with confidence.
Corn made good showing despite
weakness in wheat. We consider this
cereal well worth more money than
selling at now and advise accumulat
ing purchases near 70c level.
Oats After early weakness made
good showing on reports of Canadian
oats being now over American parity.
We prefer the buying side on breaks

Hog cholera reports again on the in
crease, but we consider the situation
bullish and advise purchases.
Stocks Wall street bears had every
thing in their favor today. Saturday
poor bank exhibit uncertainty as to
the effect of the new tariff law and
rumors of pernicious legislation. There
was some real liquidation in evidence
and support was aone too good. We
adhere to the bullish point of view and
would average holdings at the lower
level. The market seems to have dis
counted about all the bad news imag
inable. Cotton We regard the crop esti
mate of 15,750,000 bales of cotton as
absurd. ' Considering the improved
weather conditions, easier cables and
spinners efforts to depress prices along
with ' liquidation in all speculative
markets, cotton futures held remark
ably well. On these kind of depres
sions we think cotton should be

Chicago, Oct. 7. Wheat cables un
changed to higher. Must be a sur
prise. We are informed of large ex
port business yesterday not reported.
Primary movement from now on will
make showing decidedly in favor of
the long. We therefore feel that we
have seen the low price on this turn
and advise purchases.
Corn Nothing in this morning

vice of making purchases of the May
future near the 70c level.
Oats Canadian oats no higher than
ours. Buffalo wires impossible to nan

lowed there as elevators can only hold

Chicago, m., Oct. 7. Seven hundred
of the best dressed women of Chicago
viewed the oddities of the latest styles
of Paul Poiret "the high priest of col
or and the master builder of gowns,"
as they strutted across the cinemato
graphic screen at the Blackstone hotel
yesterday. They saw themselves as
Poiret w ould have them appear.
The 700 were all dressed the same.
A woman entering the room after
Poiret had begun his talk, pointed to
the balcony, and nudged her friend.
The balcony was occupied by two
rows of women, each wearing a black
"Like so many crows," she laughed.
The women in the pictures, though
were garbed in raiment wonderful, pe
culiar, and individual. Here walked
one in lampshade gown whose "hoop"
swayed with the motions of her body
There another model preened herself
before a mirror and showed the basic
principles of the trousers skirt.
STl'DY EVERY GOWN.
The spectators gave due attention
to each gown, criticising, studying,
praising, wondering. There was ample
opportunity for study, for some of the
gowns were exhibited several times
before the final reel had wound itself
Perhaps the article that brought
for the most exclamations was a
huge muff. A circular piece of white
ermine ran around the front of it and
as the wearer came closer into the
camera's focus the comment grew
"What is that white circle?" "Looks
like a life preserver." "No, it's an au
tomobile tire." Then the model stood
perfectly still and the seven hundred
laughed. It was ventured that seven
hundred black muffs with white er
mine circles will be worn in Chicago
There were also a few colored slides
showing Poiret's color combinations
women in blue serge and green trim
ming, in scarlet and black, in purple
and white, in pink with an overdress
of white, and in other shades that
caused several dressmakers a few
gasps of delight
fiOlVX IS I.IKE THE WOMAX,
"The gown is like the woman," said
Poiret as he addressed his eager audi
ence before the pictures were shown.
"Both elude analysis. The gown is the
flower of fantasy, the fruit of caprice,
a bit of ribbon, a scrap of a lace, a
touch of color. My garments show no
w orkmanship and it is because of this
that they are different.
The beauty in styles shpuld under
lie the meaning of the features, bring
out the grace and the beauty of the
wearer and accentuate it All the tal
ent of the artist rests in the reveal-
ment of the woman.
"To be in style then does not mean
to wear diamonds and ropes of pearls.
I would like just as well to see a
woman wrapping her curls with bank
notes as to see her loaded with jewels.
The rope of pearls seems to be the
mark of social standing. It is not fair,
for pearls are not becoming to every
woman. It is the elegance that should
dominate, not the cost
0 RILE TO CHARM.
"The gown should be the elegance
of simplicity. The charm comes from
the very point where It eludes. There
is no theory, there Is no rule, there
can be no rule. It is more feminine
to be illogical, hence more charming.
"Men are better dressmakers than
women because they like solKity.
Women are too rich in imagination.
They put too much lace, too many tas
sels and beads and penwipers and ros
ettes on the gown, and the general out
lines are hidden, the personality is
"They use pastel shades, which look
faded and characterless, whereas If
they used very bright colors, strong
shades and in small quantity they
would achieve creations. They are too
much for schools and nothing for feel
ing. Their gowns are never simple
CALLS IT A GOOD SHOW.
"Simplicity?" laughed Mme. Hosac,
a Chicago dressmaker. "Poiret's sim
plicity I rather like, but nobody else
ever dared to use his colors. Think
of it blue serge and green embroid
ery, it will not be worn here for many
years. However, it was a good show."

and walked away.

Paul Poiret arrived early yesterday
morning and was given a luncheon at
the Blackstone hotel, where he was a

The Parisian received the small
army of reporters and photographers
