CLOSE HEAVY ON
Frequent Price Changes on
the Chicago Board, With
Bearish Sentiment Pre
vailing for Most Part.
Chicago, Dec, 26.—Although still
somewhat unsettled by differences of
opinion as to the chances of a peace
conference being held the wheat mar
ket today virtually returned to Its
normal condition. Price changes were
for the most part in favor of the bears,
but the swings were, as a rule, con
fined to ordinary limits.
Sentiment in favor of lower prices
eeemed lo be based chiefly on the hope,
generally admitted to be slender, how
ever, that a parly between the bellig
erent would yet he brought about, per
haps by means of a formal German of
fer of disarmament.
Opening prices, which ranged from
H cent lower to l'A advance, with
May *1.64(4 to *1.65%. and July, *1.39(4
to 81.40. were followed by a substantial
setback all around and then a moder
Subsequently a sharp upturn took
place, owing to reports that foreign
governments were buying future de
liveries of wheat and because of dim
inished receipts from the northwest
and of th zero weather expected In
the southwest, where the winter crop
has but little snow protection. The
advance, failed to last, however, peace
talk having a renewed bearish effect.
The close was heavy at the same as
yesterday's finish to 4 1-Sc lower. Clos
Wheat—May 81.81 1-2, July 81.35 3-8.
Corn — May 90 3-Sc, July 90c
Oats—May 51 5-8c, July 49 1-4c.

Which she might have seen when she threw him aside—
(But it isn't on record the lady tried)
So some of him lived, but most of him died,

And it isn't the shame and it isn't the blame
That stings like a white-hot brand—
It's coming to know that she never knew why
(Seeing at last she could never know why)
And never could understand.
