At the same time, in another part of
the city, a girl nanied Ettfel'lnglea left
the home of her parents and, in all
probability, drowned herself in the lake.
She left a pathetic and incoherent note
saying that there"was no use In "living
and wearing good clothes" when her
parents hated her. Just what she meant

Result of Frequent Strikes.
The variety, duration and frequencj
of strikes among workingmen In Chicago
have become so bothersome that the
employers are feeling in many cases
that unless they can secure workmen
nothing remains for them but tc
quit the city. Seven hundred and fifty
woodworkers struck this week, making
demands of a particular sort, not of Interest
to others, apd, as these demands
cannot be acceded to by the manufacturers,
the mlllmen talk of removing tc

get steady labor at reasonable wages

mlllmcn feel they cannot be handicapped
by continued strikes while the demand
for their produce Is as urgent as
it la .
The truth 1b, It Is difficult to get labor
of any sort In Chicago. The servant
question has become a truly serious
one. Many women who have never had
experience In housework llnd It necessary
to look after their own cooking and
to have a charwomen, working by the
day, perform the other labors of ths
house. The dressmakers appear to be
Indifferent to work, and In all, classes
of labor there Is Inanition. Never has
the city seen ?o many holiday makers
as this summer. The beaches, the beer
gardens, the parks, and all places ol
amusement jire thronged In the afternoons,
not by the well-to-do class so
much as by the working people. The
long strikes have unsettled them. They
are restless; infatuated with Idleness,
and apparently not anxious about-the

less Money for Schools.
The schools'of the city are beln*j
opened a week later than customary us
a nii'a.Mure of economy. Owing to a depreciation
In real estate and consequent
decline of tuxes the funds avallnble for
school purpones this year are but JC,600.000
Instead of 18.000.000. n? was nr.
pected. The'consequence Is that the
teachers sufft'r, not only being kept
from their schools a week beyond the
time expected, but by being forccd to
relinquish the increase In salaries promised
to them. There will be accommodation
for 2r>ri?8fil pupils In the public
schoolrooms, but the enrollment will, It
la anticipated, exceed this considerably
and half-day attendance will be necessary
for the younger pupils. The enrollment
at the private and parochial
schools exceeds In number that of any
previous year.,;
A good many "fads" are likely to fnll
by the wayald'e this year. The l>oard
feels that It cannot afford to teach the
ftnv artH, for which only one pupil In a
hundred shows any Inclination, or to
teieh cooking to glrln whose mothers
'nlKht pi-rform the service, when many
children will be practically debarred
from school because of lack of accom'nwlation.
The night schools, It 1h felt,
Quit be maintained at any cost, since
t.hee.8offer the only opportunity for Instruction
to many hundred day Work*
?rts. The atendance at these Is not made
up or children alone. .'A few women and
many men who,have not had early opportunities
for education or foreigners
who wish to learn English grammatically
attend them .
It is felt by the broad-minded educators
thirt the schools In this too rapidly
growing community must minister to
the actual needs of the many, and thai
those who wish extraordinary Instruction,
particularly In branches not relating
to the three r's, will have to pay for
It in private schools. The fostering of
imaginary talents and the Instruction In
things for which the parent should assume
responsibility have become too
heavy a task. The city Is, moreover,
Impressed with Its Inconsistency In providing
truant officers and then not furnishing
school room for the truant3

some disquiet, both by reason of the

such unbridled speculation and the

some positive depression In the early

Maine election might awaken the market
Into activity at their expense. The

The furious speculation In cotton gives
point to the bank statement, and
arouses some renewed uneasiness as to
the ability of the money market to

Breadstuffs and Provisions.
CHICAGO?Higher cables and unfavorable
weather were factors In the
wheat market to-day, October closing
*4<fr\ic over Saturday. Corn closed *ic
lower: oats a shade up and provisions
from 2^c higher In lard to 32>~?i35c
higher In pork.
"Wheat was dull, but firm throughout
the session, speculative interest bi*lng
confined to the local account. A rea
son for tlic dullness was tne expectation
that the government report would be
Issued to-day and speculators were unwilling:
to commit themselves In advance
of that report. The market derived
Its firmness from higher cables, a
decrease In world's shipments and on
passage, smaller northwest receipts
and unfavorable weather In the northwest.
October opened H^ic higher at
73%$?74c: touched 74&c; dropped to
73%c and then recovered to 743ic, closing
firm and Vic Improved at 74c. The
visible supply Increased 1.441,000. bushels.
World's shipments were ">.46^.000
bushels, compared with G.G48.000 the
week previous. On passage decreased
2.600,000 bushels: primary receipts were
1.H2G.OOO bushels, compared with 1.439,000
bushels last year. Minneapolis and
Duluth reported 891 cars, against 1.2.1C a
year ago. Local reclpets were ninetyone
cars, twonty-slx of contract grade.
New York reported twelve loads taken
for.export. Clearances In wheat and
Hour were 373,000 bushels. Shipping
business was curtailed by hli;her lake
freights, the rate to-day to Buffalo being
two cents.
Corn was quiet and Inclined to be
lower, nlthough the close was steady. A
good shipping demand helping the market
toward the close. Liberal Receipts
and freer country offerings were factors.
October sold between Mc and
38tyc, closing %c lower at 3S%<ft3Svic:
receipts were SOD cars. Lack of vessel
room somewhat curtailed actual shipping
business.
Oats were dull, but fairly strnnir
The visible decrease of -128.000 bushels
was a help. October sold between 2l%<fi>
21?f?c and 21H<9121?fic, nnd closed a shade
higher at 2l%@21?ic; receipts were 8S9
cars.
Provisions were strong and active on
a general speculative demand, the
strength being due to the excellent consumptive
demand. The close showed
some reaction from the top. but the
tone was decidedly strong. October
pork sold between $11 20 and $11 57,/&
nnd closed 32V?tf?'35c higher: October
lard between $0 82^r and $6 90,
closing 2&c Improved at $0 sr? and October
ribs between ST HO and $7 45, with
