allied pordncts, Douglas fir and "bull"

so-called naval producla. The yield is

year is the largest ever hatvested in
the Palouse country. Although the'
average yield is lees than in 1897 and t

Commerce building, Portland, Oregon.]
Since Leiter failed the outsider has
not been interested in Chicago prices.
The disastrous outcome to the man
with so many millions was a terrifying
leeson to the small bull. Explanations
did not count. Whether Leiter made
egregious errors or not was of little
consequence. The defeat, after a year's
campaign, of the bull leader who for
so long seemed the greatest who had
ever arisen, took the heart from every
one who had believed in his cause. It
was only last June that the disaeter
took place; about four montha ago. It
seems a long interval, but it is really a
short one, and it would be remarkable
if it were not still in everyone's mind.
What new bull leader would now invite
the comparisons which would inevitably
be made; what banking concern would
hazard the criticism which would fol
low any favors toward a buying cam
paign in grain? Have the losses of last
summer's collapse been forgotten yetr
There must be a good deal imaginative
about any bull deal. Not one advance
in twenty is a mere matter of consump
tive demand or of actual scarcity.
There must be a great deal of theory
with advancing prices; people must
forget prudence, become venturesome,
permit more or less exhiliration.
Would it not be like holding a picnic
at the close of a funeral to permit much
bull spirit within four months of the
The present movement of wheat to

la not the speculator doing pretty well
in taking caro of that property and in
also maintaining prices? Is not the fact
that such a volume of grain is financed
and the price sustained evidence frhat
the volume of speculation is larger than
the very narrow fluctuations would

CRISIS WAS REACHED.
Jmlge Day Alhilk I'onitive Denundf
London, Oct. 19.—A dispatch to the
Londbn News Agency from Paris says:
"Today the confeience reaohed a
crisis for the first time. Judge Day
presented the demands of the American
commission in threatening words. He
said that delay was the only possible
object obtainable by the persistent
efforts of the Spanish commissioners to
saddle the United Stated witi the Cu
ban debt, and would be tolerated no
longer, as the United States would
neither assume nor guarantee any part
of the debt.
"The Spaniards replied that this
placed Spain in a position of repudiat
ing or of reducing the face of the Cuban
bonds from 50 to 60 per cent, paying
only half the stipulated interest on
reduced value. Before they would
adopt either atlernative they would sur
render to the United States the entire
"Judge Day responded that the sur
render of the Philippines would proba
bly be demanded, irrespective of the
Cuban or any other debt.
"This, to the Spaniards, the first in
timation of the intentions of the Unit
ed States as to the Philippines, resulted
in a whispered conference, followed by
a request for an adjournment in order
to communicate with Madrid. Judge
Day said that President McKinley had
instructed him to demand the entire
surrender of Porto Rico, and the deliv
ery of every town to the United States
officers before midnight, together with
the evacuation of Havana on or before
November 1, when the United States
would be at the gates of the city ready
to take possession.
"There was n© alternative offered in
the case of either of these demands;

Denver, Oct. 19.—A special to the

Florence, from their borne, six miles
from Florence, to do some trading.
After spending the day about town, al
6 P. M. they started home in theii
wagon. It was raining when they left
town, but when out about five miles
the rain turned to a blinding snow
storm. The father lost his way, and
wandered about among scrub pines and
in the hills all night. The wagon and
team was abandoned, and an effort was
made to reach home" on foot.

managed to keep alive by walking, un
til he could walk no more from numb
ness of limb. Daylight broke, and Lei*
lin knew he was not far from home,
but was unable to walk. At 9 O'clock
his cries were heard by his wife, whc
went to his rescue. Neighbors were
summoned and 'he old gentleman was
assisted to his home, but he was so neai
dead that he could not give an intelli
gent account of the night's wander
ings, but the dead body of the boy told
a pitiful story of a lack of sufficient
clothing to keep him warm. He wor€
knee pants and a small coat, but no un

"Booty" Tobacco Admitted Free.
Washington, Oct. 17. — Assistant-

100,000 pounds of Cuban tobacco in the

tobacco, and the proceeds of the sale
will be expended for the benefit of the
Cuban army, which needs supplies ol

Three Women Relieved of Fen lalo
Troubles by Mrs. Pinkham.
From Mrs A. W. Smith, 59 Summer

11 For several years I suffered with
various diseases peculiar to my sex. I
I Was troubled witli a burning-sensation
1 across the small of my back, that all
gone feeling, was despondent, fretful
and discouraged; the least exertion
tired me. I tried several doctors but
received little benefit. At last I de
cided to give your Lydia E Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound a trial. The ef
fect of the first bottle was magical.
Those symptoms of weakness that I
was afflicted with, vanished like vapor
before the sun, I cannot speak too
highly of your valuable remedy. It is
truly a boon to woman .'*
From Mrs. Melissa Phillips, Lex
ington, Ind-» to Mrs. Pinkham:
"Before I began taking your medicine
I had suffered for two years with that
tired feeling, headache, backache, noap
' petite, and a run-down condition of the
system. I could not walk across the
room. I have taken four bottles of the
Vegetable Compound, one box of Liver
Pills and used one package of Sanative
! Wash, and now feel like a new woman,
and am able to do my work."
From Mrs. Molub B. Herrel, Pow

"For three years I suffered with such a
weakness of the back, I could not
perform my household duties. I also
i had falling of the womb, terrible bear

Why Teeth Decay. ','•- _
The question to what extent the
alkaline earth salts in drinking water
affect the decay (caries) of teeth has of
late been studied in Several quarters.
Statistics have been collected by Rese
|in several localities in Bavaria and by
Foerberg, in Sweden. These have p
: vealed the interesting fact that the |
extent of decaying teeth bears a definite '
relation to the hardness of the water; '
in other words, to the quantity of cal
cium and magnesium salts in the earth
through which the water passes. The
harder the water the better the teeth;
the smaller the | quantity of these salts
the greater the decay of the teeth.—
