King of the Belgians, the only news paper reporter who ever became a monarch, is 44 years old and is one of the most picturesque figures of the great war. The king took a post-graduate cnurti in '...." newspaper training in 1908 when, somewhat like Peter the Great, lie visited the shipyards of France, Great Britain. Italy, Ger many and Scandinavia, to learn every thing possible regarding ocean carriers, with the expectation at some future time of putting Belgium high in the class of maritime powers. Several years previously, it is said, when mere ly the son of the Count of Flanders, a nephew of King Leopold, he came to the United States and worked as a re- norter on one or tvn nowqnnniiri in the Northwest.

She also flays the piano and mandolin with much ability. It is said that she has a marked preference for the old' repertoire but confesses to abominating Wagner.

One cold, rainy morning before the war, the queen was driving along the Avenue de la Reine, when she saw a poor old woman, scantily clad, walking along. The queen got out of her car, stepped ovter to the woman and asked her if she was hot cold. Receiving an affirmative reply, Elizabeth took oft her own waterproof and placed it over the old woman's back. - Then, taking out her purse she gave her several gold coins, and took her address so that she might con tinue her benevolence.

Chicago; 111., Oct 2. The Tribune: GRAIN ; While wet weather was given aa one of the reasons for taking the buying aide, those who make a study of ' condi tions said thst the dominating factor at the moment la the prospect that the peace treaty will be signed shortly. They believe that banking interests which hare bean making ready to grant commercial credits to Europe will do so aa anon as the treaty is out of the way. Political developments in the future are expected to be ot a con structive nature. Owing to the opes mar kets grains were able- to readjust them selves to the changed conditions brought about by the armistice, and aupply and demand will determine the ultimate price. Restrictions on trading in corn are ex pected to be removed aa soon as the treaty ia signed. Many of the local traders ex pected that with the September out of the way cash corn prices would drop sharply. There was a marked change in senti ment during the day in many quarters with a decided dispoaitlon to cover ahorta en the breaka. A continued active demand for eaah oata from seaboard exportera, com- Dinea wnn tne atrengtn in corn, made an active and higher oat market. Hedges against the cash sales were removed here and there was a lack of presanre from ine loesi element, aiany srrosg operators sre on the bull side, and have been for several daya.

This would mean higher prices than at present and, very short life. With a method found to use artificial gas as fuel, Mr. Do herty explained that gas cheaper than other fuels might be furnished indefinitely. He said: "Nobody ever yet has solved the question of artificial gas for fuel purposes. The future of the natural gas companies depends very much on the manner of solving the problem of artificial gas for fuel." , - It was made known to the commissioners that failure to provide a logical method of charging such as the three-part rate has prevented sell ing artificial gas as heating fuel. realtry saa Msgs.
