Opening Was at a Bin: Advance Over Friday's Closing Corn and Oata Have Joined the Doom Pro vision Unchanged. Chicago. Aug. 21. Dollar wheat was reached In Chicago to-day. The September option reached that figure a few minutes before the close, and wound up an excited day's session at SOVSc, an advance of 6V5c since yesterday. December closed at an equal gain. For the first time since the recent phenomenal adyance began, leaders of the bull clique let go of large blocks of their holdings, which In a measure relieved the strain. The excitement In wheat was shared by all the other markets, trading in corn especially being tremendous. Corn closed at a 2c advance, and oats wound up lc higher. Provisions, after an early SF;ur.'. Eanlc back and closed unchanged to "lie higher. September wheat, which closed Friday at sec. opened to-day anywhere from U7c to irSc. and kept plunging around wildly for an hour between those figures and 96ic. December was equally erratic, opening at 9.39714c fan advance of about 44c), and fluctuated between that price and 93'-c Enormous quantities were sold at those ffg ures by people who had previously bought it, the sales of one of the best known spec ulators. W. K. Linn, aggregating millions of bushels. It was current opinion that had he not come Into the market the long looked for dollar mark would have been reached in a very few minutes after the opening. It was not difficult to account for the remarkable opening advance. Liver pool quoted spot American red winter wheat at a 4?Jc advance, while California wheat was TJic Per bushel higher. Crop reports from the Northwest were even worse than have heretofore been received, some predictions placing the crop there at not to exceed seven or eight bushels per acre. The week's exports of wheat and Hour from both coasts amounted to 3.21S.000 bushels, compared with 4.460,000 bushels the week previous and 2,991.000 bushels the cor responding week of the year liefore. The clearances from Atlantic ports alone for the last twenty-four hours were equal in wheat and flour to 4,700,000 bushels. Chi cago received 219 cars, only 13 of which were of the contract grade. The shipments hence were 212.000 bushels. Minneapolis and Duluth received 213 cars, against 433 a year ago. Argentina did not ship any wheat to Europe this week, and by 11 o'clock the market had assimilated all the earlier of ferings, and hungered for more to such extent that it rose again with more than lis original voracity and leaped like a trout at a fly to secure the September wheat offered at 99c. May at the same time bring ing $1. The Continental markets were about as excited as the English markets, and this fact had much to do with the spurt from 97c. The Paris advance was Miual to 4',Si3c per bushel, and Antwerp Clic per bushel. About ten minutes before the close a dollar was bid and accepted for a block of September amid much excite ment. This price was held only for an In stant, however, plenty of wheat coming on the market about this time, and at the close' September was bringing 93',ic, while DS'.ic was bid for December. Business In the corn pit was on an Im mense scale, millions of bushels changing hands during the session. The pit was crowded all day with excited speculators, nnd price tluctuatlons were rapid and vio lent. Shorts made a irnd rush to cover at the opening and forced prices up 2'c over vestcrdav's closing. Holders of long corn t eo there, the selling being prompted by predictions of warmer weather In the corn bell. Elevator people also sold heavily on the advance, nnd a 1c reaction ensued. The market was Influenced greatly by wheat, however, and prices again advanced. Lo cal receipts were heavy 1.0i3 cars. Crop reports were very poor. September opened about l'ic higher at 31c. and sold between 30iii!i32c," The close was firm at SlflSliic The buying craze was also manifest In the oats market, and an extremely heavy business was transacted. Shorts covered laige lines, and all months were taken frtely. Sympathy with wheat and corn wan the chief influence. Local receipts wore 616 cars. September opened He higher at 19c which was the lowest pric of the day It sold up to 20VJc. and closed at lK.c Provisions were also In great request, and sharp advances all around were scored at the opening. Armour's brokers bought heavily of October ribs. Heavy selling by CudahV and outsiders brought about a re nction" later. Cablr-s were higher and the hog market firm. At the close September pork was unchanged at $.67i4. September lard 7'sc higher at $4.63. and September ribs TWSilOe higher at $5.30ti 5.3214.

Yesterday's clearances for export at the four Atlantic ports were 342,761 bushels of wheat, 33,437 packages of flour, 237,966 bush els of corn and 101,917 bushels of oats.

With a shortage of 230.000,000 bushels abroad, mainly to be supplied by tho Unit ed States, he thinks this price not an un reasonable one, and may look cheap before the year Is out. A recent message from New York saj-s: When wheat was sailing around 64c. Phil ip D. Armour, Chicago's multi-millionaire pork packer, a man ivhose pre-eminence as a wheat speculator Is unquestioned, said: "We shall see dollar wheat by Thanksgiving, and before Christmas It well be a dollar and a half."

The dominant tend ency of to-day's stock market was still dis tinctly reactionary, notwithstanding the fact that the day's trading resulted In a fractionally higher average of prices. There was a large falling off in the volume of trading and the rally which brought prices up at the close was on com paratively light purchases by the short interest to cover over Sunday. There was no evidence of any reawakening of the largo speculative interest which has car ried the market for so many weeks. For tho first time in considerably over a month no one stock sold to a total amount as great as 20.000 shares. St. Paul leading the list with sales of 17,000 shares. Burlington, Leather preferred and Reading were the only other stocks the sales of which reached 10,000 shares. The total sales for the day were considerably less than half the total of Saturday a week ago. These conditions left the market to a large extent to hundreds of professional traders, whose main object was to manipu late prices to their own ends. The crop prospect was the principal weapon of the bears, as it has been all week, and in tho condition presented of tho withdrawal of the bulls for the time being from the market, they were able to achieve sharp declines In a number of nctlve stocks, the grangers and tho internationals being prominent examples.

WHERE THEFT IS LEGAL Lnnd Where a Man Wears All Hl Clothes In Order to Keep Tliem. A land where wholesale thieving Is legal ized, and where the sixth commandment has never had any recognition. Is the queer little republic of Herero, situated In the Damaealand region of South Africa, near the domains of Paul Kruger, says the New York Journal. Neither love nor money in any quantity could buy even an inch of ground In the republic of Herero, for everything there Is common property. Even the birds of the air, the fishes of tho river, and all the game of the woods aro common property. One man cannot safely own even two shirts in Herero. for so great is the liber ality of communistic freedom that unless I a man keeps his personal belongings di- perfect liberty to help himself. Rev. Carl G. Buttner. a German mission ary, has made a study of these odd people, and ho illustrates tho absurd lengths to which the communistic principle is carried by telling of an incident which happened to him down there. "A wealthy old chief, who had hundreds of dependents, possessed numerous articles of European clothing without owning one complete suit of clothes, yet every timo he went out from his hut ho would put on all of his clothes, no matter how hot the weather may be. "He came to me one day to be photo graphed, having on a pair of shoes, three pairs of thick moleskin trousers, a waist coat over an Indefinite number of shirts, a large shawl around his neck, with a large dressing gown over the whole, and on his head a kerchief, a Calabrian cap, and a velvet cap with pearl ornaments, and all this In a heat In which his aboriginal nak edness would have made him much more comfortable. "When 1 asked him why he wore so manv things at once, he said he was afraid that if he left the garments at home the members of his household would appropri ate them to their own use. "If a man's clothing is to be put Into a box or trunk and the cover is securely tied down they would be entirely safe, for the Herero law makes It stealing to take clothing thus secured: but if the lid is left open or Is not tied down, the law allows anyone to help himself to whatever he pleases. "Anv man can build a house for him self oh any plot he finds vacant, and the house and plot are his own property as long as he personally occupies them, and no other man can come along and force the first man out."

MODERN WANDERING JEW, He Has Lived for Seventy Years in the Pennsylvania Wilds. There Is now living in the Alleghenlan wilds, near Man's Choice, Pa., a character who. If what he says be true, is of Interna tional Interest, and the discovery of his Identity will cause profound discussion both in religious circles and among those Interested In the mysticism of history. This strange, weird old man, bent with the weight of many years, bearded like an Arab sheik, living by himself and a wan derer on the face of the globe, known as the "mountain hermit" In -this section, says that he Is the Wandering Jew, that myster ious character of all the ages, who Is forced to live on forever. One week ago came a tragic event In the rife of this strange old man. and his Identity was revealed in a delirious state to two reputable hunters, James Raymond and Thomas Nutley. At that time he was taken HI and was found by these two hunters in his cabin in an unconscious state. By the aid of whisky he was revived, and when he came to his face had a terrible look upon it. Tho hunt ers suggested that a physician be sent for, but he emphatically refused, stating that as he had lived for nearly 2.000 years, he was hardly likely to die; in fact, he could not die. And then he told the two men the terrible story of how he had reviled Christ while the Savior was going to His mar tyrdom on the cross; how he had been pun ished by our Lord by being condemned to a never-ending life on the earth; how he had wandered over land and sea. through years and years, seeing centuries with their records of nations born, of old gov ernments dismembered, of war and peace, sink back into the abyss of the past. He told of his wanderings to the uttermost parts of the globe, and never death, never death. Now in China, then in France. Pal estine, Armenia anywhere, everywhere but death could never come. Finally, near ly seventy years ago, he had come to Man's Choice, and there would live, away from man. his conquests, fame and troubles. This wondrous story or the Wandering Jew was listened to with bated breath by the two Nimrods. and so lucidly, so posi tively did the hermit speak that they were actually convinced of the entire truth of nis statements. Two days after his weird prostration the hermit recovered, and since has resolutely refused to discuss the strange story which he gave to the two men. and who quickly spread it all about the country side. There Is an old Romish legend to the ef fect that once every century the Wander ing Jew must reveal his identity and then remain silent on the subject for a. hundred years. K. C F.

Splendid New ELI leaves 6:10 p. sv PHEXOMEyAL RECEIPTS OF CATTLH HERE FOR THE PAST WEEK, Beat St. Louis and Omaha Combined and Pushed Chicago Hard Big Tumble in Mexican Cattle Trade In Wltn Stock. Ju3t think of Kansas City having 53,109 cattle receipts in one week! Such were her arrivals the past week, 15,300 more than tha same time last year, and 13,400 more than at St. Louis and Omaha combined, and within 4,200 as many as were received In Chicago, where the receipts were 400 greater than tho same week last year. The Mexican cattle trade seems to hava been pretty well knocked out by the new tariff bill. For the first week in August, as shown by reports ot Colonel Albert Dean, of the bureau of animal Industry here, only twenty-six cattle crossed tho Mexican bor der Into the United States, arid they at No gales, A. T., for Immediate slaughter. Tho second week, nothing, and for the third week, up to August IS. there were 522 cattlo admitted, all at Eagle Pass.. Tex., 405 for grazing and 117 for slaughter. S. L.

Arthur Rubles, who has just returned from Wabaunsee county, Kas.. reports that county In a most prosperous condition.

It Tickled the Old Sinn and Saved the Office Hoy Ills Sit uation. From the Cleveland Leader. Henry was not a pretty boy. and therl are good reasons for believing that he is glad of it. He has freckles, a prominent nose, large ears and straight hair. If the truth must bo told. Henry. In addition to being a rather plain looking boy. chews to bacco and occasionally uses harsh lan guage. The other day, Henry's employer, who has an office In the Society for Savings building, sent him out on an errand. Hen ry was gone two hours, when he might have accomplished his mission In fifteen minutes. Upon his return the office boy was Intercepted by one or the clerks, who told him that the "old man" was furious, and had decided to discharge him. For a moment Henry was speechless, and a pathetic look overspread his counte nance, but he braced up before long, havlns apparently decided to go down with colors Hying. After luncheon Henry was summoned to the private office, but he tossed a careless wink at tho typewriter as he went In. "Henry," said "the boss." "you have been here now for a little more than six months. When you started In I had great hopes for you and expected you to give a good ac count of yourself. Recently, however, you seem to have" "Say," Henry Interrupted. "I guess you better look around for another ofllce boy. I'm tired of this job and made up me mind ylsterday to quit." Henry's employer looked at him In amazement for a moment and then askedt "How was It that you didn't como to ma at once and offer your resignation?" "Well." said Henry. "I didn't like to break It to you so sudden. I wanted to kind of let you down easy. So this morn ln when you sent mo out, I thought I'd work It so you'd be kind of mad. and then you wouldn't feel so disappointed when I come and told you I was goln to quit." , "The boss" did not reply Immediately, He sat and gazed at Henry and studied his face. At last a twinkle appeared in his eyes, and he said: "Henry, don't you quit. I still believe you have something in you that is worth de veloping." So Henry reluctantly consented to re main and as he passed the smiling type writer he whispered: "You ought 'a' seen me throw it into 1ml" PENSIONS. Washington. Aug. 21.

The firm placed the wrong construction on the telegram and replied: "Sorry. See a physician and keep sober.' Couldn't Lose That Chance. From the Cleveland Loader. Surgeon "Hurry up! Get the Instruments In readiness. We'll amputate his leg." Student "But It seems to be nothlne more than a simple, fracture. I should thlnlt the leg might be saved."

"I don't like to mislead the public I guess the best thing to do will be to refec to him as 'an actor of great power.' " 4 The Bitter Part. From the Indianapolis Journal.
