Today’s Market Gossip
■ —•
The south is reported to be bidding
strong prices for oats in tbe Chicago
inarbet. On the other band, northwest
houses are selling May oats.
New York reports 250.000 bushels of
oats sold to France, late Tuesday. There
.are messages from both New York and
(Philadelphia noting small export sales of
* Wire from New York says that we feel
that, until tbe credit situation has been
Ptoperly adjusted, it Is no time to buy
sfocks. Asa matter of fact, under pres
ci)t conditions, we believe stocks should
be sold on all rallies.
Chicago dispatch says some receivers
jf.ee indications of increased supply of
b ars in the west. Also understand wheat
’iN to be given preference it) shipments
from this market. Nothing done caub
corn yet but promises about unchanged.
Chicago tinker says: “Vice president
of a large bank at New York said that
•trconey rates we? # o not held high for the
sole purpose of causing liquidation in
stock market. Instead the Intention is
to liquidate tbe heavy warehouse hold
ings of commodities which are held hy
merchants for higher prices. Large
sums of loans have Wen and are belug
made bv merchants for such purposes.”
Wire from Chicago says that the re
cent statement by Mr. Barnes tbit “wis
dom dictates the reduction of commit
ments to the minimum required for the
conduct of necessary current business' is
particularly potent in the grain mar
kets. There will be many rallies from
degressions so long ns premiums exist
for daily receipts, but the total ulti
mate supplies will be uppermost in the
mfnds of the trade.
Chairman Wilkinson of Crucible Steel
company says: “All taxes and penalties
assessed against company have been paid
in full, tne matter finally settled and
statement to this effect given the com
pany by Interna) Revenuo Collector
Roper. Report lhat Crucible ts seeking
additional funds is false. No money has
been borrowed recently for tax purposes,
nor is there any need for such borrow
The Iron Age says: Steel market is
giving new evidence of large volume of
unsatisfied demand and of advancing ten
dency in all products in spite of steel

prices. Great gain of 1,137.000 tons In
corporations unfilled orders in December
is In contrast with situation with most

Serum Injection Benefits Pa
tient Is Claim.
DENVER. Jan. 15.—Dr. Charles Ar
thur Ellis, Denver physician, has declined
to outline what progress has been made
by himself and other prominent physi
cians of this city in their search for a
cure for pernicious anemia.
The eyes of the medical profession
have been on Denver for some weeks,
following the reported discovery by Dr.
Ellis and his colleagues of a treatment
‘that, it is believed will afford a per
manent cure to those suffering from lack
of a proper supply of the little red cor
puscles that carry oxygen through the
human anatomy.
"It is too early to speak positively
of the discovery,” Dr. Ellis Is quoted as
saying, and be intimated that no an
uouncement will be made until entire
success is assured.
In one instance, however, a young
man who had been practically consid
ered a hopeless case—he was .given only
a few weeks to live by several physicians
-- received such benefits from the newly
discovered treatment that he passed a
fine physical examination for the United
States army.
Tbe treatment, it was learned, consists
of a serum injection, the serum being a
substance that destroys the germ that
kills the corpuscles In the blood.
Frank W. Ekstrand, a promlneDt drug
gist of Salina, Kas., declared that the
Mayo Brothers, renowned surgeons, had
told him that nothing could be done to
save his life. Hearing of the new Den
ver discovery Ekstrand came to this city
and after a course of serum treatments
declared that he was practically eure'd.
Pernicious anemia results from the
loss of blood. It is said that a healthy
persons totes around some four and'a
half million little red corpuscles to each
cubic centimeter of blood. The corpus
cles carry the blood through the system.
Where pernicious snemia develops tbe
corpuscles dwindle to a million or less,
when the afflicted person dies from ut
ter weakness.
Oxygen Injections .
May Help Aviators
PARIS, Jan. 15.—A discovery which
may prove of great benefit to aviators
has been made by Dr. Bayeux, noted
French physician and scientist, whose
report has just been presented to the
academy. *
Dr. Bayeux remained eleven days on
the summit of Mont Blanc. To guard
against illness, which generally attacks
persons remaining at such high alti
tudes, lie submitted to injections of oxy
gen under tbe skin and felt absolutely .
no 111 effects.

It has been three months since the
general sales of hogs were as high as
they were on Thursday and the pre
dominating price of sls was $1 higher
than the general average of the mar
ket a week ago. One reason for the ad
vance of 60c over the day before was
the receipts of only 12.000 fresh hogs
and a layover of only 1.600, which is
1,500 to 3.500 less than buyers have re
quired a number of days thus far this
year. At the unusual advance in prices
buyers were apparently more interested
than they were a few days ago at
much lower rates and this was said
to display a much stronger sentiment
that prices will be considerably higher
before the spring flowers are in bloom.
There was a higher market for pigs,
the best bringing $15.50, and sows were
25c higher with sales from sl4 down.
Local packers and outsiders took about
an equal number of hogs and there was
a good clearance.
As near as could be determined by a
great variety of views, there was a con
tinued dull and unsatisfactory market
for steer cattle with prices still leauiug
in favor of the selling side. The most
conservative estimates indicate a general
loss of nearly 50 cents in prices of steers,
so far this week, and isolated sales are
probably $1 lower. Most of the loss is
on the steers valued from sll to sls.
There, was little of no change in the
market for female butcher cattle, and
according to most views they are not
more than 25 cents lower for the week
thus far. There was no change indicated
in prices of veal calves that sold up to
$22. ot on the heavy veals from sl2 down.
There was a continued poor country de
mand for feeding cattle and that branch
of the market was correspondingly dull
and weak.
There was one lonely, but apparently
aristocratic, lamb drew S2O a hundred
pounds out of a buyer on Thursday, but
the practical top price stood at $19.50.
Heavy sheep from $lO down were steady
as were also the yearlings salable as
high as sl3.

* 1 HESE Notes constitute an un
conditional obligation of the Belgian
Government repayable in New York
City in dollars.
♦ * *
In addition to an income yield of
over 7%,the Belgian Government has
made provision whereby a substantial
profit may accrue to the Noteholders
upon a rise in the value of the Belgian
franc. Under normal pre-war condi
tions the Belgian franc was quoted at
about francs 5. 18 to thedollar(viz.,i 9.3
cents per franc). Today it is quoted
at about francs 11 to the dollar (viz.,
9.09 cents per franc). The Belgian
Government has agreed that when
sales of Belgian exchange can be made
at any price more favorable to the Note
holder than francs 11 to the dollar,
any Noteholder may, at any time be
fore maturity, surrender his Notes and
receive payment of the principal (i. e.,
par) together with accrued interest and
also 50 °/o of such increased value of
the Belgian franc. The precise method
of realizing this possible exchange
profit is set forth more fully in the
prospectus describing the issue.

W ITHOUT attempting to pre
dict the future course of the market
in Belgian exchange, it is logical to
expect that the restoration of industry
in Belgium and the increase in its ex
ports will tend to improve its trade
