Grain and Produce
CHICAGO, Aug. 13.?Sensational
breaks In prices of corn for Immediate
delivery almost monopolised attention
today i nthe grain trade. The
fall In cash values of corn amounted
In some cases to 27 cents a bushel,
u compared with 24 hours beiore.
No bther reason for the setback was
apparent except the fact that the
distillers were at least temporarily
out of the market altogether. Future
deliveries of corn closed nervous
at the same as yesterday's finish to
ffO lower, with December $1.14%?
A i 1.11% and May $1.12%?1.12%.
.Wheat closed 3 cents down but steady
at $2.15 September, and oatB off
,%@%o. Provisions showed advances
of 15?30o.

A party of West Virginians were Incited
to his studio by Carl Baudexler,
>ne of the best known and most gentrally
patronized portrait painters in
;he Capital to see his painting of Con{ressmau
Stuart F. Reed before it is
soxed up and sent to Charleston to be
rung upon the walls with the portraits
>f the predecessors of Mr. Reed in the
jffice of Secretary ol State for West

The portrait by Mr. Baudexler was j
painted from life, Mr. Reed giving the j
trtUt a number of sittings to facilitate
lis work, which was a contract he had
lecureu from the state. The result is
i portrait which is satisfactory to both
he artist and his subject, and meets
vith the appioval of the West Virginans
who have viewed it. The best
ividence that It is a first rate work of
irt as well as a truthful likeness is
hat Mrs. Reed has placed the stamp
>f her approval upon It, and prolounces
it good enough to hang In the
lulls of the State Capitol for coming
generations of visitors to that edifice

Senator Sutherland, examined Charles
C. Hagenbuch, of Clarksburg, himself,
and passed him as an applicant for admission
to the second officers' training
camp. Mr. Haneubuch was examined
at Fairmont and refused because
of a trivial defect easily corrected. Col.
Johnon wired Major Wallace at
Charleston to discard the report on the
Fairmont examination and accept his
own report made on the applicant.
Mr. Hagenbuch is a well known and
highly valued employe of the Consolidation
Coal company.

I think that they should be paid for
advertising the forthcoming bond isj
sue, and are writing to Senator Suther-_
land about it. They refer to the fact"
that tbey gave their space free to the
government to help float the Liberty
Loan, but in view of the high cost of
paper, materials, etc., and Increased
taxation upon them personally and
upon their business, they think it only
fair that they be given an advertising

tor Sutherland will, within the next

the Treasury department'* policy will
be with reference to thi* matter.
Seventy per cent ot the men tn the
District of Colombia had claimed exemption,
or were doing so when called
up (or examination, bo Provost Marshal
General Crowder told the local papers
that he believed that a list of the exemption
clalmers with their excuses
would make good reading, and the papers
thought so too. So they published
the entire list. General Crowder'a
publicly stated reason for allowing this
was that the claiming of exemption by
any man affects the time of calling of
many others, and la. therefore of public
interest. While that may ha, there
baa been a rash to withdraw exemptions,
and an inclination not to make
them. Some ot the reason* given for
trying to evade service are ei ridiculous
as the one given by the stage
comedian to the effect that he had a
Ford depending on him tor its support.

Washington has two big bathing
hMchna ithfiv are reallv hasins) on the
Monument grounds, and opened the
third to the public at the new Central
High school, said to be the finest high
school In the world, this week. This
pool is larger and better equipped than
either of the other two, and they are
large and fine pools. Thousands of
men, women and children swim In these
public pools from early in the morning
till they close late at night. There is
a program of hours arranged for men,
for women and for the children, and
several hours set apart each week for
both Bexes, mixed bathing. The government
of the pools is by strict rules.
There are life .savers, who are also
teachers of swimming in attendance at
all times. Only one piece bathing suits
aro allowed, and women and girls must wear
stockings. Every precaution la
taken to keep the water clean and
healthy. The pools are drained fre- '
quently, and fresh water is kept flowing
in all the time, overflow pipes taking
off the excess. In the meantime
they are cleaned up with a chemical
process, and a sample bottle of water .
Is taken from each pool every hour to 1
he analyzed. The pools are just as
much frequented by the best classes i
of the people as by the lower strata. .
The government of these pools is as :
near perfect as could be. Before entering
a pool, each person must take i
a shower, eoap up and have his body as j
clean as his one-piece bathing suit.
There Is nothing in Washington co
popular with the people as these public
bathing beaches, and nothing does
eo much good, gives so much pleasure (
and wholesome fun to more people at t
smaller costs, than they do. Every 1
village, town and city should have 1
