to th?? New York Herald says: By
an explosion of'un oil tank in Somerville

which he is to'receive otficlal notification

expect to make any speeches in advance
of his nomination.
DESTROY.?Inquiries are being made
into what may possibly turn out to be
a serious attempt to destroy the Grand

Why One Young Woman Threw Hers
Into the Gutter in Wrath.
Kansas .City Slur: She was fair of
face and?well, say, twenty-flv>.
Her clothes were neat rind coo!. Pinned
to the bosom of her shirt waist was
one of the large buttons now being distributed
by the bureau of Information
for the accommodation o? stranger?
visiting this city during the session of
the Democratic national convention.
This large button bore the tallsmanlc
words, "Ask me."
When she tripped Intc the car ami
took a seat the men stared at her. T.ie
women did likewise. Opposite sat a
middle-aged woman with her sevenyear-old
The child stared at the laige button
on the shirt waist, then, pointing to it.
asked, "What Is that, mamma?"
"It's very rude to point, don't you
know, my dear?" quoth mamma.
"Well, what Is it?" she again inquired.
The young woman heard the Inquiry
ar.d reprimand and smiled at the perverseness
of the child, then, holding out
her hands, said, "Come here, HttJi
sweetheart, and I'll explain It to you."
The child looked at h?r mother, who
nodded assent. She went over and was
lifted to a seat In the young woman'slap.
"Now, I'll tell you all about It. These
buttons were designed for the purpose
of furnishing information to the many
visitors who will come to Kansas Ckv
next week. If they are seeking a hotol
or Btreet or store all they need do Is ask
the wearer of a button like this. In
other words, the wearer of a button like
this will answer questions asked. Do
you understand now?" ?tie asked. The
child nodded her head.
"And are you going to answer questions?"
queried the child.
"Just try me and see," replied the
young woman.
The child lingered the button In silence
for a few moments, then she suddenly
"How old are you?"
"I'm "
"Are you as old my mamma?" pre*
slsted the child. Mamma frowned. The
young woman smiled.
"Are you married?" was the next
"\*n T nm ?
"Why don't you get married?"
The young woman showed signs of
"I expect to?some time," she replied.
A Chinaman came into the car. The
child took her eyes off the young woman
loner enough to see- who was the
I new passenger.
"Would you marry that Chinaman?"
, she as5:ed, pointing to where he sat.
! Mamma smiled. The men luugbed, and
! the young woman blushed furiously.
; Putting the child down, she signalled
the conductor to slop and she stepped
i from the car.
j Before the car was out of sight si e
threw that "ask-me" button as far as
j she could send it.

To-day's stock market was but a dull
and uninteresting affair and marked
the further relapse from the manipulated
rise of the earlier pure of the
week which came into evidence yesterday.
Selling to take protits was the
order of the day and the bears put out
some fresh short lines. That neither of
these operations was on a very extensive
scale is sufficiently shown by the
small figure of the total sales of the
day and the greater part of. even these
small dealings took place in the forenoon.
when the bull interests were still
making futile efforts to continue the
advance. The efforts were not pu:
forth In the opening transactions and
i the sympathetic depression from foreign
markets was allowed Its full effect.
| The weakness there was due to re new |
ed fears regarding the Chinese situation
j and to the mishap to the British forces
in South Africa. The effect here was
purely sympathetic and when it was
| seen how small the sailing for London
I account was, the bulls braced their
' energies and attempted to resume coni
trol of the market. The pressure of
protit taking which met the advance
wnen lasi nignrs level or prices was
approached, discouraged the attempt
! and the market was allowed to lapse
into an almost lifeless state. The sharp
break in the wheat market,which might
be fairly construed as indicating a
more hopeful feeling regarding the

! market. Small a a thi: offerings were,

Breadstuffs and Provisions.
CHICAGO?Weather conditions Influenced
all the grain markets to-day.
Reports of improvement In the northwest
and the raising of the figures on
the estimated yield were the principal
factors in a decline of Di'&lUc in
wheat. Corn closed %?%c lower and
oats H'SUc lower. Provisions were
steady on light receipts and good cash
demand and closed 2Vi1i5c higner.
The opening tone of wheat was rather
strong, September starting al an advance

was due entirely to pit trading, local
speculators being influenced by the
fact that foreign markets did not
show an adequate response to yesterday's
decline here and to the seriousness
of the Chinese situation. The
strength disappeared almost immediately.
Reports from the northwest told
of an Improved condition of wheat fts a
result of rains and the cooler weather
prevailing and the changes In the crop
given out to-day In the Trad* Bulletin
were considerable. This quickly
changed the balance of trading In favor
of the bears. The northwest sold considerably

against 7S5.000 bushels a year ago. New

to 215,000 bushels. Corn wuj> strong !

ur-d weather in Kansas and Nebraska ;
and absence of rain with decldtdly r?fs- j

showed a substantial advance, and this j

Local receipts were G:i." cars, beptsmber

The oats market followed closely the
fluctuation of corn. The opening prices
were slightly higher, hut the market
soon declined on rolling by local traders.
