GRAIN MARKET DULL
Unusually Light Movement
in Local Markets.
FARMERS DAMAND HIGHER PRICE
Old Grain Supply Short and New Crop
Not Yet Harvested.
An unusual apathy marks the wheat
market these hot days, when collars
tad cuffs become ornaments only.
Every one seems interested in the
harvest which is just opening, and so
far none of the wheat growers seem
inclined to sell. Prices range near
iis cents for bluestem, but the figure
is at least 5 cents too low to interest
sellers, and buyers claim that to be
Lhe top of the market.
There is no selling and not even
contracting. No one wants to sell un
til crop conditions are ascertained,
and buyers have no instructions to
buy for future delivery. In a short
time harvest will be under way, and
the crop can be estimated accurately.
Until then there promises to be a lull
in local markets, and grain buyers will
have but little to do save keep cool.
It would seem that prices will open
higher than last year by 15 to 20
cents, but the crop will be somewhat
short. The fall market will open in a
month, when a great deal of the grain
will be ready for shipment to tide

Mother Insane From Grief Over Two
Spokane.—Grief over the sudden
death of her husband, followed almost
immediately by the confinement of
her daughter in an asylum for the in
sane, has caused Mrs. F. C. Yonnie. a
weil-known resident of Tyler, to lose
her mind. Saturday she was commit
ted to the asylum and was taken to
Medical Lake by a deputy sheriff.
Mrs. Yonni'e's cast 1 is an ( specially
pathetic one. Over a year ago her
husband died ! uddenly. The wife
and the daughter. Miss' Hattie Yonnie.
grieved for weeks over their loss, and
finally there v signs that the
laughter's mind ts weakening. In
a few days sh • . brought to Spo
kane and held in fh • county jail until
the papers for confinement in the
asylum were sign by the judge.
That was on February 2i, last, and
since then Mrs. Yonnie. having lost
both husband and daughter, has been
under the constant care of relatives.
Three days ago she exhibited the same
menial symptoms as her daughter had
exhibited only a few months ago. She
has now traveled over exactly the
same route —from their home to the
county jail and from there to a cell
in the Medical Lake Insane asylum.
While the physicians' examination
was being conducted Mrs. Yonnie re
fused to talk. She answered all
questions by a shake of the head and
does not seem to realize her condition.
Her mind seems to dwell continually
ujkjii the sorrow of the past.
