Speculatively, the Markets Were All Very Dull, Only a Light Business Being Done. Office IteruMIc Thursdaj. Aug. 23. lSW vVhilo the different Brain markets retained their strength over nlcht ami presented qulto a bold front whin they opened this morning, and throughout the day for th it matter, they were- eitremelv slow and tam.' the greater part of tho time and especially during th8 first hour or two. At intervals of more or less duration the pit on 'change pic-enteJ a very discouraging nppe-irarco, being deserted most of the time by traders. who Mood around In an Idle, listless way. disclosing the weather and other current topics, apparently taking llttlo .Interest In the proce-dlnss. and making no efforts to trade or arouso interest In the markets. This state of affairs was naturallv rellected by the movement and changes In prices.. which were Infrequent ana bk'") lined to ven narrow- limits Speculative, interest remained -very nearly dead until -within a short time of the hour for closing. Tvhcn there was a slight chance for the bet ter in this respect, traders coming out of their franco and the market got a llttlo move on. with the result that for tho rest of the session the pit boro some, eemblanco of iifo and prices moved up a notch or two and linallv closed at or near the top for the day. wheat showing gains of VdisO to 5,c. corn of He to 40 and oats of 3,c. Th1 wheat market hire was favored by several factors that wero of a character to Ctve added strength to the situation and the start oft was encouraging for the bulls. There did not appear to be much speculative Interest taken in the market, however and for scv eral hours after the opening trading was so very light that there was hardly any movement In prices. End a stupid condition of affairs prevailed a greater part of the time. One of the chief strengthening In fluences tills morning was in a further con firmation of the fact that the crop move ment Is gradually growing less. The arri vals here to-day were only S3.1W bvu.as com pared with 162.W0 bu. last Tuesday, and tv. SfO bu. a j ear ago. Besides these Kmall receipts the shipments were largo and cables wire encouraging. Liverpool, after opening 3d lower, reacting almost Imnieillateiv -u. Cool and clear weather was reported in tho Northwest, and Minneapolis, which started out stronger, failed to hold Us strength, while late cables were more disappointing than otherwise, the closing at Liverpool be ing only Hd higher for the da. Pans dull at ty; decline and Antwerp quiet and un changed. The advances on the other hand were Uo at Berlin and fee at Buda Pesth.

Mr. Konolds's antics kept the whole Milage in excitement to-day, and It was only with much difficulty that tho Sheriff was able to keep the woman from con tinuing iicr work of destruction. Mr. Rejnolds. objected at the breakfast table to his wifr's- receiving the attentions of several farmer; of the neighborhood, and 111 a pas-sion of anger his wife chased him out of the house with a shower of pots and dishes.

Sheriff Brockett arrested the woman after a long struggle, and neighbors put out the blaze after considerable damage wis done. Mr. Remolds had not como for ward with the bond3 to liberate his wife at a late hour to-night. PICNICKERS MARRY IN FUN.
