Chicago, July 17.—Wheat has held within narrow limits throughout the entire session closing a shade lower than last night with news and trade featureless. The strength in corn and oate undoubtedly did much to steady the market. Leading cash grain houses report country offerings of wheat only moderate. Export business was very dull and no new business was reported up to the close. "Weather in the Can adian northwest still unseasonably cool when hot and forcing is needed. Believe prices are due to move out of the rut into which they have fallen and we favor purchases on all de clines. 4 Corn made a brave show of strength early, but met serious opposition both from its friends and enemies and clos ed practically unchanged from last night's figures. A continuation of hot and dry weather throughout the major portion of the belt was offset partially by indications of slightly cooler over the greater portion of the belt and showers indicated for Iowa and north ern Illinois. Considerable selling both by longs and shorts was based on this .fact. Corn is a weather market and Until permanent relief is experienced southwest, prices will hinge on weath er conditions. Oats scored an advance and final figures show %c higher tonight than last night. Oats threshing returns from Missouri, Illinois and Indiana creating considerable action on selling Side.

Chicago, July 17.—With the export demand for wheat keeping up and the black rust season in the northwest at hand, leading wheat bears are not taking any chance and are said to have reduced their lines. There has been active closing of spreads on July and September that showed a big profit and some traders are buying September and selling December. While sentiment is generally bearish, conservative people advise against short sales except on sharp bulges. Speculators who disregard claims cf crop losses west of the Missouri and the continued high temperatures sold out their corn yesterday because of the light out side buying, based on the bad crop report. Some of the best traders are looking for a bulge unless rain comes in southwest today or to morrow. Cash sales were 85,000 bushels wheat 85,000 bushels corn and 200,000 bushels oats. Sea-board reported 800.000 bushels wheat soJd for export in past two days. The Inter-Ocean says "Wash ington announces that the official ex ports of wheat and flour from the United States for the fiscal year end ing June 30, equaled 147,000,000 bushels against 78,000,000 bushels the previous season. Exports of wheat alone were 91,461,000 bushels against 28,688,000 bushels last year. Exports of corn were 48,307,000 bushels com pared with 39,402,000 bushels the previous season. Inter-Ocean.

He could not foresee anything to cause any great delay. The getting of thes& wells into operation has been slow work and just why he could not say, it has simply been so.

St. Cloud and Moorhead Know. The Jouranl-Press: Bemidji is to be congratulated in securing the sixth normal school. Of all the state Insti tutions a normal school is the best that be handed any city. It brings to such city a class of people well worth hav ing—able and experienced teachers and students who are preparing to be teachers, young folks for the most part doing things worth while. First hon ors are due the teachers of our public schools in the work of training boys and girls for good citizenship. Bemidji Is especially well located, being in the central part of northern Minnesota, having excellent railroad facilities, and it is a city large enough to provide pupils for the model department of the normal. The next best city for the school would have been Thief River Falls. The Iowa Way. Under the new highway commission law in Iowa the county road builders and repairers will be required to work a plan uniform for the entire state. The state commissioners will meet with the local supervisors and give instructions how to proceed. TO HELP THE LIBRARY. Fonda are Needed to Buy Pictures and Fix Up a Room. The Moorhead public library is to be beneficiary of a moonlight musicale ..ich is to be given on the lawn at President Weld's home tomorrow eve ning at 8:30 o'clock. A small charge will be made for chairs and there is to be a sale of lemonade. The feature of the entertainment will be the singing of old-fashioned songs which the eld ers loved so much when they were kid dies and which they would like their own little ones to know more about. It is understood that Mrs. C. A. Nye one of the active promoters of the unique enterprise has succeeded most admirably in the "rounding up" of a number of vocalists who will regale the audience with renditions of songs of long ago. The object Is a most worthy one and everybody should at tend the musicale and assist the women who have so earnestly taken hold of the work which is desired to be done In making the library still more at tractive and useful.

New York World: Bis ley, a larger Airdale dog, owned bv W. H. Reber of Butte, was killed while leading a pack of wolves near Red Lodge. Three wolves were shot at the same time. The following story can be verified in every detail, and proves that London's Call of the Wild is not altogether fiction. Bisley was the special property of Edward, W. H. Reber's son, and was kept on the Reber ranch- "He was the best hunter I have ever seen," said the young man. "I have been out with him many times in a boat on Rosebud lake. The ducks would no sooner drop in the water than Bislev was out of the boat and after them. *Late last winter he disappeared. A few weeks prior to that he would go off in the woods, sometimes staying away whole days. Then he vanished altogether. I thought he had attacked a cougar and got the worst of it." John Dunn had been troubled with prowling wolves the last few months. He saw the pack several times, and told of a strange-looking, light brown wolf that led the bunch. He believed that if he could get the leader the wolves would cease their daring at tacks upon his stoeki At lnr.t Mr. Dunn and. several cow« boys started after the bunch. They hunted moat oE the day, st-tUn^ snares. The pack was rounded up «nd four of the animals f? 11, The l^atier was the first one shot, as Mr. Dunn was particularly anxious to yet him, When Mr, Dunn ,reached the enreasg ho Picked up, Instond of n, wolf, an un usually large Airilal© dosr.

Charles Kolb of Oakland and Los Angeles, who commanded a foreign legion in the Balkans for,the Bulgarian king, is now an officer in the Japanese army and instructing the'little brown men in the latest arts of warfare, according to •friends of the man here who received a communication from him recently. Kolb went into the Balkan war fresh from service under three flags in Mex ico. He served with Madero against Diaz, with Diaz against Madero and later with Madero against Magon. Prior to the revolutions in Mexico he fought with the French in Algiers and with the English against the Boers. Kolb also has participated in a revolu tion or two in South America, but in his letter to Oakland' friends states he expects to see the greatest conflict of them all In the orient as Japan is pre parine for war with "some great oower". Kolb is well known In this state where he made his money for many years between his periods of service under various flags. His friends know him as a cashiered officer from the Austrian army who has an income at his disposal which reaches him semi annually. Kolb always keeps a sum of money on hand to go to the scene of the nearest war. He bears the scars of several wounds, but has always iad thfi good fortune to live to see an other fight. The soldier of fortune's letter states that the island empire is eager to se cure the service of all foreign soldiers who have had expedience in a war or two and that the little brown men in view of tho fact that they pay good fighting wages to foreigners would have the world's finest foreign legion* in the world in case they cross blades with#some country In warfares EARTH I,Y GLORY, I do not envy &ny u»na Tho royal purple taat ho wears} A crown la but n foolish thing1,- Aooompanied by many cares, I would not wish to be a eaar, Compelled to hldfe from jealous foosl I'd rather be a baseball star, Who daszle8 everywhere h® goes I would not jeurney ever sseas V To loom up as a diplomat, With breeches reaching to my knees— I fear I luck the le^s for that,' I would not be the bard who wakes The harp, to thrill as Homer thrilled I'd rather be the man who makes A home run with the bases filled, —.Chicago Record^Herald, LEADERS OF ORGANIZATION ON MISSION WEST, fWM I. i "t If i i i v & j-l ii & ,* I H! t.

Sheets, cash ier of the old Davles County Savings association bank, by men who then were thought to be Jesse and Frank James, but afterwards said by Cole Younger to have been Jesse ahd a man named Beals, who raided the bank. They failed utterly in their purpose and went out of Gallatin in disorder after one of the men, Beals, had been thrown by his horse and had to mount behind the other. They were fleeing in this fashion when they met Danieil Smoot a mile from town and made him dismount and surrender his horse. He did so at the point of a revolver and the pair disappeared across the country in the direction of Kidder. They were pur sued by posses, but managed to make their escape. But Daniel Smoot was mad. He had been riding a pretty good horse and horses were horses In those days. So he promptly brought suit against the bandits, naming them both as defend ants. and suing for the value of the horse that he lost. To Insure the col lection of the judgment he ran an at tachment on the fine sorrel mare that had thrown the rider, and when judg ment was taken by default, he took possession of the animal to satisfy the tudgment. For a number of years Mr. Smoot drove and rode th® mare and she was the object of considerable interest to visitors to Gallatin. He roared sever al very fine colts, and as it turned out, inade a very good deal with, the rob bers. taking advantage of their ab« sence. CUBISTICALLY SPEAKING.
