""r6 Matures of today's fi na.acial market. .pmi1C,k!lrand bonds dlered in no es n ; !s,from their recent irregular or uncertain tendencies, aside from a pronounced falling off of operation in the share list. i,T6 rlse ln emand loans came in tne last half hour and was attributed to the withdrawal of funds by local banks to meet Impending obligations lor federal and underwriting ac counts. Price changes In all but the specu lative stocks were comparatively narrow. Rails were firm at the out set on assurances that St. Paul's maturities would be met. Resumption of dividends on Chicago, Indianapolis and Louisville common shares also stabilized transportation for a time. Coppers, Pittsburg coal. Corn Pro ducts and Famous Players, were among the stronger Issues. Steels, equipments and other representative Industrials became reactionary on the heavier tone shown by motors and miscellaneous issues including mer chandising, leather and food groups. Sales 675,000 shares. Sterling de mand bills rose to 4.10 '4 before the close, an overnight gain of nearly three cents. French and Belgian re mittances advanced about 25 points each, Italian, Dutch and Scandina vian quotations gaining 10 to 20 points. All Liberty and Victory Issues closed at declines ranging from tri fling recessions to about 60 cents per f 1UU. The general domestic list was in clined to sag, but internationals strengthened on heavy buying of United Kingdoms, Japanese 4s, and 4ss. ana several or the French gov ernment and municipal issues. Total Bales par value. $17,3o0.000. CHICAGO BOARD CHICAGO, Dec. 8 Better e?ort aemand helped give wheat a lift to day. Prices closed strong 1 to 2y4c net higher, with May $1.13 to 11.14 and July $1.02 to $1.03. Corn gained ;i to 1 and -oats V to "4c. In pro visions, the outcome varied from 10c decline to 40c advance. Wheat showed strength from the start and with a gradual Increase of buying prices moved up readily. New export business by way of the Gulf of Mexico was noted and special atten tion was given to news that British stacks or wheat totalled only ll.ooo. COO as against 24,000,000 bushels a year ago. Indications of larger flour sales at Minneapolis tended further to encourage bullish sentiment, as did the fact that receipts were small er at most primary points aside from Kansas City. Absence of any ag gresaive selling was apparently due In a considerable degree to an opinion current that recent declines had been drastic and that a reaction was to be looked for. Toward the end of the session, nu merous longs who had sold out were active on the buying side. Corn and oats advanced with wheat. Export demand for corn was gjafd and the domestic call was better triui CIS been we case ior some unre. Lard and ribs rose on scattered buy- Ins- which found offerings rather light. Pork was marked down In the absence of any Inquiry. FOREIGN EXCHANGE NKW YORK.

QUEUES AND FOOTBINDING Through the writings and reports of foreign observers most of us have recently been induced to believe that all Chinese men have cut off tbcir Queues and that little girls and wo men are no longer subjected to the tortures of footbindmg. But neither of these things Is true. It is true that there are not many queues left in the cities In which there is a strong foreign influence, nor are there'many high class Chi nese anywhere who continue to cling to this one time so ntgmy va uea adornment; but if you would know something about the uncompromising attitude of the people as a whole you must get together, as I did, a l.ttle cart caravan and strike out into the railroadless and newspaprless ln terior. On many a day's Journey acrors country, through villages ari towns and considerable cities, you would not see a single shorn head, and all your ideas about the awakeniaij and the rejuvenation of China would find themselves hopelessly at variance with an inescapable conclusion tnat anything in the nature of An actual change in this amazing Itn 1 will probably take place in a too gradual way to be currently observable. As for the cruel practice of bindinw the feet of little girls, I need only say that on a Journey in the spring of tris year I covered a large part ot snan tune and Southern Chih-ll, and ex cept in Christian mission schools did not see one single little gtvl over 9 years of age with unbounl feet. And a little girl with newiy pouna iet :i a most pitiable creature. As she grow older either she begins to set used to the agony or her developing vanity helps her to bear it. But when she is a little girl. Just emerged trom loot free childhood, the thing she is com pelled to live through is not to be described. She will sit for days on end and do nothing but cry into herself, as it were softly, helplessly, nopeiessiy And when she staggers out to pla' she stumns around on her heels, hold ing her little bound toes up, ana one is likely to observe her ft any mo merit triving way to a spam of un bearable pain. It probably Is the most dreadful thine in the world, uut. strange as it may seem, a 4 -inch foot is still an asset to a Chinese woman. To be sure, the modern cities are filled with modern women with bi fee jfos. 2 or 3 at most, ordinarily because the feet of Chinese women are naturally small and juch women even become proficient ln modern dancing and may be seen ln cabarets and fashionable restaurants foxtrot ting, twostepping and even toddling to American Ja music with smart vonne men from the universities: but the mass of the people has not ceased even in China to make up the bulk of the population, and the bulk of the Chinese population is still steeped In the traditions or millenniums past. From the Saturday Evening Post. WHAT HE LIKES It's not a generally accepted theory, but every man really likes a woman who has occasional headaches and little attacks of peeves. There must be something appalling about mar rying a woman whose eyes open with a, sort of Joyous click in the morning, who never, never needs tucking up on a sofa, who plunges Into cold baths recklessly, and lives ln brouges.
