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
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
With such big factors working in op
posite directions the market hardly can
continue indefinitely in its present dor
mant state..

$2 for a shave brought Bonnie Brough
ton, lady barber, into police court a few
days ago. It also resulted in Bonnie
being assessed a $25 fine.
The trouble started when Fred Carroll
dropped Into Bonnie's shop and asked
for a shave. He got It, also a combina

head vibration, which he didn't ask for.
When the bill was presented Carroll
protested, but Bonnie was firm. Carroll

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.

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.

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

‘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

and other features make possible a re
