Reports from the Winter
Wheat.
Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce. March 7.
Lewffe was the big trader in wheat when the
market opened this morning.vand the operations,
being largely on the selling side, checked the
advance which had raised May to 77%@77%c
and made Minneapolis fractionally weaker than
Chicago. Some of the A. Patten crowd, in
cluding Patten and C. E. Lewis, are at Hot
Springs. Ark. Theirs were supposed to be the
buying orders, covering short wheat, that lifted
prices near the close yesterday, and the infer
ence today was that they were again putting
out their short lines. To anyone in the winter
wheat country or t'lose to it the situation would
no doubt look bearish, for the crop, from all
accounts, is doing well and there is an abun
dance'of moisture. This morning Hutchinson.
Kensington, Concordia and Clifton, Kan., and
other points were in with reports of snow which
fell to a depth of several Inches overnight. This
morning the sun was out over Kansas, with
probability of speedy reduction of the snow to
water and the thoro soaking of the crop. There
were rains in Texas, Missouri and in the Ohio
valley, and at Indianapolis and Terre Haute
there were cloudy skies and Indications of rain
this morning. It is hard indeed to see where
any .serious winter wheat damage is to occur
at present. For tonight showers are probable
In Illinois, Indiana and Michigan, while fair
weather tonight and warmer Thursday is the
forecast for 'Wisconsin, Minnesota and the Da
kotas, Iowa and Nebraska. The Kentucky state
report makes the crop condition 96, compared
with 08 in December last. A year ago the
March 1 condition was 85 and the state produced
bout 9,000,000 bu. Rye shows a present stand
of 97.
Kneeland's Argentine cable told of unsatis
factory market conditions and no encouragement
1 tor a larger movement, rains continuing thru
the country. Some Argentine farmers are hold
ing hack wheat.
Liverpool closed %d lower to %d higher.
Minneapolis elevator stocks for four days show
an Increase of 700,000 bu. Receipts were again
I comparatively heavy, the figures against those
'of a* year ago showing 274 and 141 in Minne
apolis, 22 and 16 In Duluth. 6 and 19 In ChM
'cago, 124 and 32 for Winnipeg, 25,000 bn and
87.000 at St. I-ouis, and 85,000 bu and 149,000
in Kansas City. Local cash demand was a little
better and both the mills and elevators bought,
'taking No. 1 northern at %c under May.
Primary receipts. 409,000 bu against 361.000.
clearances, 208,000 bu.
The later market pressure came more upon
Chicago, and Minneapolis May and Chicago May
sold an even lc apart. That this spread will
narrow is probable. The new winter wheat crop
news strikes direct at Chicago values. In the
northwest there is the good old wheat, and it Is
'a, long look ahead yet to spring wheat crop
"news. Chicago futures selling under Minne
apolis would not be surprising.
THE FLOUR TRADE
BUYERS WAITING FOB WHEAT PRICES TO
SETTLE BEFORE PURCHASING.
Millers pronounce the situation without im
portant change, yet showing better posrtbilttles.
If wheat would settle and show signs of steadi
ness at the present price level, flour buyers,
who are now holding off. would probably come
in. Domestic trade would run larger and there
might be some export business As it is, how
ever, lower prir-es are expected and so there
is hesitation about stocking up. Quotations are

CHICAGO GRAIN
JWHEAT MARKET WEAK ON OPENING
CORN AND OATS STEADY.
Chicago, March 7.The wheat market today
was inclined to be weak at the opening, and
pit traders generally were favorable to the
selling side. The fact that the Liverpool mar
ket showed no advance corresponding to the %c
Increase In price registered here yesterday and
favorable weather for the crop In the south
west were the mate weakening Influence. Com
mission houses were the principal buyers. May
opened %@%c to %@%c lower, at 7S%c to
78%c, sold up to 78%c and declined to 78%@
78%c. Minneapolis, Duluth and Chicago re
ported receipts of 302 cars, against 403 cars
last week and 175 cars a year ago.
A decided slump occurred late in the day be
cause of general liquidation and a rush of short
sales. The close was very weak with prices at
almost the lowest point of the day. The final

ODD EFFECTS OF A CRAZE
Some Results That Have Followed the
Post Card Fad Here and Abroad.
J. W. Harrington in American Maga
zine.
To the boom in picture postcards the
postmaster general of Great Britain
ascribes a decrease of one-half per cent
in the number of letters delivered last
year in London. There were delivered
in the United Kingdom 734,500,000
postalsan increase of nearly 20 per
cent, and of these 80 per cent were
privately printed. The per capita al
lowance of postal cards in the king
dom would be seventeen to each per
son. In many localities in the United
States the postofflce facilities have
"been swamped by the excess of souve
nir postals, while on the board walk
at Atlantic City riots have been nar
rowly averted because the authorities
had neglected to supply enough 1-cent
stamps to meet the demand of the vic
tims of carditis postale.
Other insidious forms of the collect
ing mania, however, are coincident with
that which is propagated by pasteboard.
Thousands of well-meaning persons are
gathering cigar bands and pasting them
in ornate designs on nearly everything
but doormats. Women of culture and
refinement are sewing the painfully yel
low ribbons which come around" bun
dles of cigars into sofa pillows, and the
expostulations of husbands and fathers
are of no avail. The latest mania is
for ink-kissed kisses. Small albums are
now provided, on the pages of which
may be imprinted the impress of the
carmine-soaked lips of the person who
subscribes his regards in the book. Some
of these kisses are bunchy others well
defined and many small and pecky.
Among the other forms of mania are
the eccentric fevers which result in
their sufferers gathering newspaper
headings, pewter mugs, old locks, stones
of queer shapes, arctic fleas, old tables,
souvenir spoons, hotel loot, beer labels,
theater tieket coupons, meteorites, tum
ble bugs, birds' eggs and scarabi.
In fact, if one goes about looking for
^tendencies of this kind he may near
ly anywhere scratch a Tartar. This
may seem an extravagant statement,
but I have on more than one occasion
Iput it to the test.

MAKING CHRISTMAS CANDY
How to Prepare the Ingredients for the
Christmas Sweetmeat Roundelay.
Housekeeper.
A box of home-made candies is a wol
come gift much appreciated at Christ
mas. There is an art in treparing
such a box for one's friends and the
end gained is worth the trouble.
Candy boxes of any desired size can
be purchased at any box factory, or
boxes covered with the art crepe paper,
sold at so reasonable prices nowadays,
make attractive receptacles. A bolt
of crimson baby ribbon, a few sprigs of
holly and several sheets of white tissue
paper will enable a dainty package to
be sent from one's home.
In packing the candies it is wise to
cut paraffin paper and stiff bristol
boards to fit the Doxes in layers. A
sheet of paper, then a layer of board
will keep the softer candies, such as
chocolate creams, from crushing.
Uncooked candies are never palat
able, and no amount of flavoring* will
mask the raw taste. On this account
take the trouble to prepare fondant,
which is the basis of all fine cream can
dies. It is not at all difficult to make
if the instructions are carried out.
A week before Christmas prepare the
fondant, which can be placed in a jar
cover with a damp cloth and keep in a
cool place until two days before Christ
mas, when it should be made up into
the various confections. This- time
will allow the chocolate, used in .dipping
to become firm.
Colorings for tinting can also be pur
chased at the druggists, and always
state that they are to be used trf color
food to insure getting vegetable
coloring.
Bed will produce any shade of pink,
rose or scarlet according to the amount
used. Violet will proauce any shade
from pale lavender to deep blue
pistachio orn spinach will give green

A FANTASTIC GATE
Boston Globe.
The two long stone walls -emrennd
ing the McGee estate on Church street,
Brookline, not far from the West
Boxbury line, are joined by what is
known as the*plow gate, a combination
of farming implements. The gate is a
trifle more than half the height of
the average-sized man and is wide
enough for a narrow vehicle to pass
thru.
In the upper right hand corner is
a plow, the handles of which extend
some distance above the top of the
structure. Just below the plow is a
fork,, the handle of which also tops
above the gate. The framework is
joined together on the left-hand side
by a spade in upright position. A tri
angular-shaped ground leveler com
pletes the frame by reason of its being
set in such a position as to form the
crosspiece at the bottom and a diag
onal brace crossing the tenter. In an
upright position in the center of the
gate is a hoe, the blade of which
comes above the top frame, making in
all five top pieces as ornaments.
This unique combination is the result
of a fantastic idea carried out many
years ago when Professor Crafts was
alive. He owned and occupied the
propertv. and it is still known to many
as the old Craft estate.
Professor Crafts was a botanist of
considerable note and often made trips
abroad for" the purpose of botanical
research. On such occasions he re-
rare and queer plants and shrubs.
These he had put in the soil on iis
estate, where they thrived for man
years. Some of the old shrubs are still
to be found on the estate, tho all
semblance of life has left them.
