S MluneapoUs Chamber o Commerce, Feb. 26.
Liverpool came very strong this morning, but
fe traders did ot seem to care anything about tor
i ign markets and sold wheat quite freely on the
early curb, with the result that the opening
was fractionally lower than the close of Satur-
V*' daj. A little covering rallied the market a
trifle, but the advance was met with renewed
calling, the market selling down a quarter of a
cent to about put price. Scalpers took on a lit
tle long wheat on the break, absorbing offerings,
later on Chicago turning stronger, small shorts
and scalpers started to buy and found very llt
tie wheat for sale until the price got above 81c
(or the May option.
i Ou this advance, early buyers took profits
and with reuewed selling by the bears, the
market reacted to the opening price. Trade has
been light all day with no impoitant features.
It is simply a case of "dog eat dog" among the
calpers, the outside business is so very light
that the professional element are fighting among
themselves for their profits. Local receipts were
a little larger than expected and the cash de
mand, nhile poor, was a little better than the
last two days of last week, with prices on
bout the same basis as reported then.
Local stocks increased 250,000 for two days,
receipts 680 cars, sgalnst 591 a year ago, Du
luth 38 against 31, Winnipeg 154 against 82,
Chicago 6 against 25, Kansas City 79,000 bu
against 107,000 bu, and St. Louis 46,000 bu
against 71,000 bu. W shipped 49,440 bu of
Wheat and 56.336 barrels of flour.
World's shipments of wheat were reported at
8.880,000 against 12,512,000 bu last week and
9.888,000 bu a year ago, every country re
ported showing a decrease from the previous
week Wheat on ocean passage is reported at
45 752,000 bu, an increase of 1,704.000 bu, while
the visible supply decreased 350.000 bu.
In the late trading the market turned easy,
selling down and making a new low point. Bears
Jumped on the market when they saw that the
demand was not stiong enough to cairy the
market higher.
Broomhall's Liverpool cable: "Wheat was
steady at the opening -ivitn values hi&ber,
due to the large decrease in stocks in the
Inlted Kingdom and tb small world's shtp
ments for the week. Shorts were nervous and
covered some, and with the firmness of La
Plata offerings the nearby option gained an ad
ditional &d while the distant months held
steady. Corn was steady at the opening, with
values unchanged. Later the market gained
'i ^*@%d on the higher American offerings which
prompted shorts to covering."

CHICAGO GRAIN
WHEAT MARKET BARELY STEADY ON THE
OPENING.
Chicago, Feb. 26.The tone of the wheat
market at the opening today was barely steady
because of reports of colder weather in the
southwest. Prices were somewhat higher at Liv
erpool and the world's shipments were small,
but this failed to offset the weather bulletin.
The chief sellers were local traders. May
opened a shade to %@%c higher at 83%@82%c
and eased off to 82%c. Minneapolis, Duluth and
Chicago reported receipts of 724 oars against
609 cars last week and 647 cars for the cor
responding day of last year.
The market became weaker as the session d
Tanced, the chief: factor being: the weakness of?
the Minneapolis market. The low point tor
May was reached at 81%)81%c The close
was weak, with May down *%c at 819aC.

Local receipts were 177 cars, with five of con

Northern Pacific Rises a Point, but
Great Northern Preferred Declines
TwoLimited. Demand Causes Mar
ket to ReactBonds Were Heavy at
Noon.
New York, Feb. 26.Very light buying orders
were lu the stock market at the opening today
tii prices we're inclined to sag. St. Paul was
a prominent exception, with a rUe of a point,
and Consolidated Gas fluctuated uncertainly with
an ultimate decline of a point. Northern Pa
cine, Korfolfc Sc Western, Chicago Terminal pre
terred were down a point and Sugar a large
fraction.
Consolidated Gas declined a point additional,
but the general level of prices did not fall
lower and buying orders appeared after a pe
riod of dullness which caused an advance ah
around. Recent leaders In which profitable turns
have been made were most in demand, notably
Union Pacific, Reading, Smelting and Amalga
mated Copper.
Speculation became lea* active after the mar
ket had risen above Saturday's closing and some
effect was produced by realizing here and there
but the strength of Union Pacific held the mar
ket. That stock and Reading rose 1%, North
ern Pacific, New York Central, Southern Pacific,
Smelting, Consolidated Gas and Distillers securi
ties a point. People's Gas and Manhattan fell
1 and International Power sold at a decline of 5.
Prices continued to creep upwards with occa
sional halts, but there were no Important set
backs. Dealings were largely congested In the
leaders, especially Union Pacific, which rose 2
points. .*t Paul gained 2%, Reading, Illinois
Central, Consolidated Gas and Central Leather
1% to 1% and Louisville & Nashville, Rock
Island preferred, Colorado & Southern second
preferred, Brooklyn Transit, Amalgamated Cop
per, American Car preferred, Pressed Steel Oar
and Hide- and Leather preferred 1 to 1%.
Bonds were heavy at noon. Profit-taking on
the morning's rise disclosed a limited demand
and the market reacted. Smelting fell back a
point and Consolidated Gas 2- In the railroad
list prices were relatively better maintained, bnt
Union Pacific, St. Paul and Beading yielded
good fractions. Great Northern preferred de
clined 2 rtsA Brooklyn Union Gas 10 points.
General Electric and Chicago Terminal improved
1 and the preferred 2. International Power
recorered ita 5-polnt loss.
There was little energy In the afternoon deal
ings, the market showing indifference to the
attempts to renew buying by bidding yp selected
stocks.
Prices were a good deal affected by move
ment to take profits on the day's advances in
the final hour. At the same time Consolidated
Gas was force* down to a fraction lower than
OB the morning break and Brooklyn Union Gas
broke 15 points. Northern Pacific reacted 3,
St. Paul and Reading 1%, and Union Pacific
and Brooklyn Transit 1. Reading first pre
ferred and North-Western lost 1%, St. Louis
Southwestern and Pacific Mail 1. Prices rallied
again when Canadian Pacific, Missouri Pacific,
Texas & Pacific and Wabash rose a point,
Wheeling & Lake Brie second preferred 2,
Wabash preferred 2% and Wheeling & Lake
Erie 1%. North-Western rallied to 1% over
Saturday. The recovery about restored the top
level. Consolidated Gas ran off again at the
last, but the closing otherwise was quiet.

market opened steady at a decline of five points
to an advance of one point, the gain being on
the new crop months. The feature was March
notices, which were issued to the extent of
80,000 bales, and which caused further liquida
tion of the near positions, but after selling off
to 10.17c for March, or even with the low point
of last Friday and about six points net lower,
the market rallied on buying of March by vari
ous spot interests, and during the middle of
the morning worked up to a net gain of 4@5
points on the active months. Later trading
was less active and fluctuations irregular, but
the demand from trade interests imparted a
fairly steady tone to the market and selling
was scattered.

GOSSIP OF THE MARKETS
Oummlngs Commission company's weekly letter
says: The market was flooded with bearish
news and statistics during the week, but prices
do not show much of a decline from the prices
of a week ago. The professional crowd who
have been so bearish the past few weeks, ham
mered the market on every littl advance, but
failed to dislodge much long wheat by their
tactics.
From what we are able to find out, there are
more buying ordersin the market at 80c than
there are selllne orders on stop losses From
this we believe that the market lor wneat
around present prices is a safe purchase and
that wheat is now on the bargain counter.

GIRL OF FOUR
Is World's Champion, and Is tht
Strongest Female Child.
Charles (Mich.) Correspondence
New York American.
St. Charles has the strongest little
girl of her age in the world. Her name
is Matilda Gage, and she is 4 vears and
6 months old, the daughter of William
Gage of this place.
The little wonder now weighs bnt
thirty pounds, but she will take a fiv
pound dumbbell in each band and hold
them out at arms' length she will put
one up fifty times with either hand
without stopping except to change from
one hand to the otherthat is, each
hend fifty times.
She will put up an eight-pound dumb
bell ten times with each hand, and will
raise a ten-pound dumbbell from the
shoulder.
Another stunt the little girl performs
is to rest her head and feet upon two
chairs and hold a twenty-flve-pound
in the center of her body.
The father, William Gage, was well
known in Jackson ten years ago as
"Billy Gage, the bantam-weight pugil-
ist." It is his ambition to have his
daughter become the strongest woman
on earth, and he now claims for her
the infant weight championship of the
world.
At the age of 1 year a
one-poun.dMrs
dumbbell was placed in her hand, and
now she will with ease pick up a twen
ty-five-pound dumbbell from the floor.
Mr. Gage also does a few stunts in
this line himself. He handles a sixty
pound raisin it at
arms'-ru.he.
