DULLNESS MARKS STOCK TRADING Public Out of Market Almost Entirely—Two Factors. (By Thomson & McKinnon) Stagnation continues on stock ex change, public Interest is all but absent, professionals providing what little ac tivity there is. When seeking for a reason for the present inactivity we find two well-de fined influences, one leading to hesita tion, the other toward optimism. The one is the money market with all its various ramifications and its direct effect on business of the nation. A want of credit, and because of that, an absence of demand, results in ern barrasment to merchants and manufac turers. If continued the result on business would be anything but cheerful. The other influence is the prospect for an immediate adjustment of the prob lems relating to the railroads and the benefits that will result from it in re moving discontent of labor, facilitating traffic and expediting liquidating in merchandise. With such big factors working in op posite directions the market hardly can continue indefinitely in its present dor mant state.. ACTIVE Oil, STOCKS. —June 29 — (By Thomson & McKinnon.) Bid. Ask.

Terse Market Notes STOCKS—Trading In the stock market on Monday was of the smallest propor tions of any day since December, 1918. Ohio Cities Gas Company’s name will be changed to the Pure Oil Company July 1. Republic Steel and Raldwin Locomotive are being mentioned as stocks In which developments are coming that will sur prise folowers of the market. Another reason why eyes of the stock market are focused on San Francisco is that the prospect of a stock exchange holiday next Saturday depends upon whether nominations are made by the democrats by Friday. Great Northern Ore earned $3.83 a share In 1919 on Its beneficial certificates, as compared with $3.01 for the previous year. WHOLESALE FEED TRICES. Ton Sacks. Cwt.

(By Thomas & McKinnon.) —June 29. The late start and the spotted condition of the corn crop makes tne market some what more sensitive to unfavorable con ditions than to items of the reverse sort. A forecast of continued heat over west ern and southern portions of the com belt offset the beneficial rains which ap peared in more northern sections. Shippers and elevator Interests, being imbued with the idea that the present movement will be the last of any import ance until the new crop is assured, are anticipating forward requirements. It is not discoverable, however, that eastern buyers are increasing tbelr de mands. The market probably will prove erratic under the changes in weather conditions, but we incline to the idea that the practical disappearance of premiums. Slowness of new demand and the known reserves of old corn on farms should out weigh crop uncertainties. Excellent ruins over the central and north portions of the oats belt Induced moderate realizing sales. This selling was not on a large scale and there was suf ficient new demand to keep market tone rather firm. The cash market promised to be easy, but shippers were in the market and prices were about unchanged. Crop news from southern part of the belt is not of the best sort. CHICAGO CASH GRAIN.

Chinch Bugs Found in Greene County RICHMOND, Ind., June 29.—Warning is sounded by th-s division of entomology of the state department of conservation for Indiana farmers to watch their wheat for the preseucet of chinch bugs. Harry F. Diets, assistant state ento mologist. has returned from Greene coun ty. where he found several wheat fields on the 4,000 acre farm of the Ogle Land j Company literally alive with the pest. The problem with the farmer is to j keep the bogs from migrating to the corn ; fields when the wheat is harvested. If not eradicated, the bugs will suck the juice from the tender corn stalks *nd ; cause them to die as though scorched. To prevent migration of these insects, straw, well soaked with oil, may be used to construct a barrier around the affected zone*. Toiled Years to Buy Ranch; Dies BAKER.

HIS DEVICE TELLS THE SEX OF EGGS ‘Sexometer 1 Claimed to Be 85 Per Cent Accurate. WINNIPEG, Canada. Jujie 29.—Here after, when referring to an egg, the precise grammarian will not say “It,” he will say “he” or “she.” For a Winnipeg poultry fancier, who is also an inventor, has established the fact that egg is not neutral gender, ns schools have always taught, but mas culine or feminine. But to make sure that he uses the right pronoun, the disciple of pure dic tion will have to carry about with him a device known as a “sexometer” in order to determine whether the egg is a po tential rooster or hen. As the result of a series of experi ments which he has conducted since he perfected the device early in the spring, the inventor, F. J. Fellows of 192 Ken nedy street claims, in an interview, that the "sexometer tells truly the sex of j eighty-five out of 100 eggs. The 15 per cent of uncertainty he at- j tributes not, as the interviewer sug gested, to the supposition that some t i PARTICIPATING and other features make possible a re turn of over 10% on the sound 7% Preferred Stock we recommend as meet inis' the requirements of the most careful investor. / nitamt Mortgage Company Odd Fellow Bldg.
