CHICAGO MARKETS.
CHICAGO, lia.. Dec. 15.— The wheat market
derived firmness at the opening this rooming from
an advance of lV*d at .Liverpool. That advance
•was not fully equivalent to our gain of yesterday,
anl was hardly a reflection of what took place
here Advices from the English market later in the
morning were to the effect that Argentine would
probably have 10.0J0.000 bushels of the present
crop for export, and (hat Russia was offering wm-at
»l lower prices than America. These two reports
comblnej to discourage the buyers of yesterday
and selling no->n manifested superior force to the
buying, over a cent decline resulting Receipts in

GLADSTONE'S FAMILY LIFE.
Like SI any Another Old Man He Is
Ruled by a Child.
A large-hearted old man who loves
children is sure, no matter bow master
ful he may be, to be ruled by some child.
Mr. Gladstone is no exception. His sunny
little granddaughter, Dorothy Drew,
rules her, illustrious grandfather
as V: imperiously as he ruled his
party in the days of his political
leadership. The Grand Old - Man rinds
pleasure in her companionship, and even
when posed for a picture allows her to clasp
his hand tichtly, as if to force him to keep
qniot. A writer in an American contem
porary says:
Never was a family more truly united
than that of the Gladstones. They con
stitute the most wholesome type of the
British country family, wholesome in
mind and wholesome in body, .and no
breath of dissension or scandal has ever
disturbed the serenity of their mutual re
lations. .
Sons, and daughters, as well as those
who have entered the family. by marriage,
all vie with one another in reverence ana
devotion for ; the one who has done so
much to render the name which they
bear illustrious, a synonym for justice,
piety ana generosity.
But superior to them all on that score is
the "Grand Old Woman," as the vener
able Mrs. Gladstone, the once famous
beauty, Catherine Glynne, is affectionately
described throughout; the United King
dom.
No wife is more watchful and devoted
than she, and Mr. Gladstone has made
few political speeches in Parliament when
she has not sat in the gallery, inspiriting
him with the knowledge of her presence,
and few public addresses outside the walls
of Westminster when she has not sat by
his side, whether on the platform or on
the hustings.
Indeed, on one occasion, when, about
teen years ago, he was called upon to
speak in the open air at Greenwich to an
extremely hostile audience, she 1 won the
day for him by; stand throughout at
his side, holding an umbrella to shield his
silvered locks from the glare of the sun. —
