NEW YORK, Sept. 10.— War, famine
and misfortune have combined in Eu
rope to give the American farmer such
a market for his wheat as he has not
enjoyed for so long that he has for
gotten when it was. Dollar wheat is
not only an established fact, but there
is every prospect of the cereal reaching
the $1.25 figure The mortgages which
have been sapping the Western and
Eastern farmers of their life blood are
doomed. The crop of the United States
is estimated at, in round numbers, 550,
--000,000 bushels. This means $400,000,
--000 for the farmers.
The easiest answer to the question,
"Where is this wheat going?" is found
in the word, "everywhere." Ships are
now on the ocean bound to almost
every port in- the civilized world where
ships land and take on cargoes. Wheat
is wanted all over the world, for the
very simple reason that the demand
for bread exists in the same propor
tion. The crop in India, which has
really been the factor that has hereto
fore operated in the direction of low
prices for American wheat, is a cipher
this year. The yield will be compara
tively nothing;, for just now and for.
some time past India has been the hot
bed of rebellion, and in the face of
what will probably be one of the great
est conflicts the world has ever known
REVIVAL OF THE STOCK.
L_ ___J _L__- . .
James Beggarstaff, who has set the fashions which will become popular
: the authorities, either native or Eng
lish, are not paying much attention to
" the size of the crop or mourning their
loss. Instead they are trying to get a
supply from somewhere, and just now
that somewhere happens to be Amer
ica. Just think of exporting wheat to
India! It is like carrying coals to New
To begin with, the acreage devoted
to wheat this year in India is 1,000,000
less than last year. The land that wa.«
cultivated has yielded comparatively
little, so little, indeed, that it really
amounts to nothing, and what there 13
the natives will sequester for them
selves, whenever possible. England
cannot look to other portions of ncr
dominion to supply this shortage, and
as much as she will dislike to do so
she must turn to this country to help
her prevent a famine. This means
that the American farmer will pocket
a very handsome amount of what the
enemies of England are fond of re
ferring to as "British gold." France
must take our wheat because her own
crop is practically a failure. This
In the face of the present tariff will
be a rather bitter pill to swallow, but
the medicine must be taken, and. in
order to accomplish the task more
easily, France is going to reduce her
own tariff on wheat.
Surely bread Is the staff of life when
the proudest of nations are all com
pelled to eat their own words, as ii.
were, and acknowledge the supremacy
of the country whom of late they have
been abusing so violently. It is par
ticularly the case with France, for, in
view of her Russian alliance, she has
boasted that after this she would im
port what was necessary in the way
ol breadstuffs from that country,
where she would receive aid in proof
that the friendship of the czar was
genuine. But Russia has many
mouths to feed, and. indeed, will her
self be compelled to call on the United
States for a portion of the wherewith
al to form her own bread supply. TJie
grain fleets that have hitherto depart
ed from Odessa and threaded through
the waters of the Black sea their va
rious ways to other ports of the world
will be absent this year to a great
extent. Odessa in 1597 will not be able
to make good her famous* boast thai
she is the greatest grain market in tht:
Germany, too, is falling into line,
and despite the fact that she believes
herself discriminated against in the
newest of the everelianging American
tariff alterations, is humbly seeking a
supply of grain through mercantile
representatives in the United Stan?,
and. like the others, is getting it. The
United States is not vindictive, but
sells even to its enemies, and all the
time the American farmer profits.
Looking to South America, where
Rreat quantities of wheat have hith
erto been raised and exported we find
that the Argentine republic, always a
■fcrmidable competitor, will need our
pv-heat this year, instead of exporting
It as usual. A very large amount Is
wanted, too. for the South American
ha? a good appetite as well as his Eu
ropean cousin. All along the coast of
South America is heard the same cry,
wherever wheat is known: "Give us
material for bread." And the Ameri
can farmer is giving it.
From South Africa conies another
cry for wheat, and vessels have al
ready sailed for several of the South
African ports with huge cargoes of
wheat. Others are preparing to sail
laden in the same fashion. Even the
Transvaal republic in Africa wants
American wheat this year, and it will
he supplied. There are many ships
winch constantly sail between the

America for Bread. S
United States and South Africa every
year. This fall there will be more :
The grain elevators in New York ar<3
totally unable to hold the vast
amounts of wheat which are wanted
for transshipment abroad. Even those
unwieldy affairs known as floating
elevators, which float about the har
bor and the East and North rivers,
have all been called into an unusual
field of usefulness. They are filled and
refilled. The only times when they are
empty are when they are returning
from some vessel whose hold has been
filled with their contents. No one in
New York ever remembers anything
like it. The ships are insufficient in
point of numbers to carry out of the
harbor all the cargoes of grain that
are wanted elsewhere. This is the
harvest time of the tramp steamer or
sailing vessel. It is no longer doubtful
as to whether or no a cargo can be se
cured, but the question is which ship
pers will pay the highest price.
To mention the individual places
where American wheat is going this
year would be to recapitulate the map
of the world. The wheat crop of the
world is short and therefore the United
States must make up that shortage as
best it can, and incidentally profit im
mensely. It is declared by financiers
that in the movement of the wheat
crop New York city banks alone will
be called upon to furnish $150,000,000.
This is comparatively but a drop in the
bucket. Great fortunes have been
made by the speculators, of course, but
the farmer gets the best of it in the
long run. There will be no more fifty
cent wheat for many a long year.
There are also heavy exports of corn
this year, but the price of corn has ad
vanced but little compared with that
of wheat. This is due partly to the
fact that the 1897 crop will be enor
mous, and there is not the same de
mand for it in other countries that
there is for wheat.
ROOST OF BLACKBIRDS.
Tbe Indiana Con-a-res- Open* ut
ANDERSON, Ind., Sept. 11.— Indiana
blackbirds are holding their annual re
union in the groves just east of Butler
university at Irvington. Here, year
after year, is exhibited one of the most
peculiar trait's of birds. About the
middle of September, for the last ten
years, blackbirds have swarmed there
by the thousands, centralizing in the
groves about a mile east of the uni
versity buildings. The number in
creases from thousands to tens of
thousands and to hundreds of thou
sands, until the trees on which they
alight are black. Their weight often
breaks giant limbs.
This annua! reunion has become
quite a feature-study of the university.
Tho precision with which the birds re
turn about the same time every year
and settle in the same trees is wonder
ful. They have changed their roosts
but little during the last ten years and
they seem to possess instincts which
are fine as to time and place. They
are divided into families and each
family has a leadership of its own.
During the day they fly in all direc
tions in family groups, but return to
the trees in the evening. They hold
forth three or four days in high car
nival and at last begin to leave with
military precision, most of them going
South. Hardly a blackbird is seen in
the vicinity of Irvington for a year, but
when the middle of September arrives
there is another grand congregation
and reunion. Their cries may be heard
a great distance when they all get set
tled down. Thijs year an attempt was
made to dislodge them. Shotguns were
used and hundreds of birds were killed,
but. they held their ground. Roman
candles and fireworks were also
brought into play, but they had little
effect upon the fears of the birds. This
is the only known roost in Indiana and
it is probably the most remarkable one
in the country.
INFLATED WITH BEER.
Frank Barry Has to Be Tied to Pre
vent Float 1 11 -i Off.
ST. LOUIS. Sept. 11.— Frank Barry
drank thirty-two bottles of Weiss beer
while playing cards for the drinks last
night. He drank all there was in stock
and called for more.
The more he drank the bigger he
grew and lighter he became.
By 3 o'clock this morning he could
not walk without bouncing about like
a rubber ball. His feet would not stay
on the floor and he became a human
balloon. About daylight he was so btg
and airy that he had to be strapped
down to the floor of the saloon.
At the dispensary Dr. Kearney was
afraid to take the inflated man from
the ambulance, as the risk of losing
him in the upper atmosphere was too
great. So he climbed into the ambu
lance, felt his pulse, asked some ques
tions and told the driver to take him to
the city hospital.
The gas was pumped out and Barry
now remains on earth, just like his fel

CHICAGO, Sept. 11.— Everything traded in
on the board of trade today was weak, with
the exception of oats, and heavy declines re
sulted. Statistical news :ln wheat favored
the bears for once, and they took advantage
of that fact with a vengeance, pounding the
price down to a point l%e below yesterday's
close. Corn declined l*4c for the same rea
son. Oats declined %c. Provisions suffered
from another large dose • of yellow fever
scare; pork declined 20c, lard 30c and ribs
12% c. No matter what the complexion of a
government crop report may be, the wheat
market is almost invariably weak after Its
announcement. Today's market was no ex
ception. Wheat started at a decline of %tg)
%c, and, with the exception of two or three
short spasms of strength, the market was
decidedly off color all day. The government
estimate, 464,000,000, was rather small in
itself, but the trade generally believed in
a yield 100,000,000 bu larger than that. The
week's clearances from both coasts were
equal, in wheat and flour, to 5,461,506 bu,
against 6,268,000 the corresponding week of
1896. Chicago received today 265 cars, against
174 a year ago. Only 20 cars of today's re
ceipts were contract, compared with 70 car
loads of the regular grade in the day's re
ceipts a year ago. Minneapolis and Duluth
got 759 cars, against 4SO Saturday last, and
1,166 cars a year ago. The total clearances
of wheat and flour from Atlantic ports for
the day amounted to the liberal total of
890,000 bu, but that did not further interfere
with the weakness with which the market
had meantime become badly afflicted. De
cember opend at from 97*,_c down to 97*>4c
and, after fluctuating for a short time around
the lower edge of the opening range, it
gradually increasel in heaviness until about
half an hour from the end of the session,
when it had got down to 96c. The weakest
phase of the market was in the last ten
minutes of tlie session, by which time tha
general crowd had gained the courage of
their convictions, and no longer feared to
sell the wheat they considered much toa
high. They battered the price of December
down to 95% c, even to 95% c for some of it,
but, not wishing to go home short, some
buying of that sort caused a recovery to
96% cat the close.
Corn was radically weak. Receipts were
1,129 cars. Weekly clearances were heavy,
4.962,000, but bulls had in mind a large visi
ble increase Monday, and refused to bs com
forted. Liverpool was %@ld lower. Decem
ber opened %@%c lower, at 32%@32%c, and
declined to 31% c, where it closed. Tak
ing into consideration the weakness in corn
and wheat, oats were comparatively steady.
December ranged from 21"4 c to 20% c, closing
at 21c asked. The yellow fever scare struck
the provision market with renewed violence.
Huge quantities of lard especially were
dumped on the market. At the close July
pork was 20c lower at $8.27%, July lard 30c
lower at $4.45, and December ribs 12% lower
at $4.77%. Estimated receipts for Monday:
Wheat, 450 cars; corn, 1,500 cars; oats, 440
cars; hogs, 28,000 head.

NEW YORK STOCKS.
NEW YORK, Sept. 11.— The general tone
of the market for shocks was strong today,
and there was no heavy pressure of realiz
ing sales. But there was more or less weak
ness at different points scattered through the
list- The Northern Pacific issues were heavy
on the continued bad showing of earnings,
the fourth week in August show.ng a de
crease. This showing is in marked contrast
to the average increases vhich are shown
by other railroads, almost without exception.
Some of the roads in the Southern group
| were unfavorably affected by fear. that the
yellow fever quarantine would interfere with
| their traffic, and also by the government
bureau's report of the unfavorable condi
tion of the cotton crop. The effect was
noticeable in Southern preferred and Mobile
& Ohio. Missouri Pacific was under more
or less pressure of profit taking. The coal
ers were also weak, the Reading issues being
under pressure to a marked degree. The
bulk of today's trading was centered in the
grangers and K. & T, and these were
strong, with tho exception of Chicago Great
Western and Northwest, which closed at a
fractional decline after having risen a point
net. K. & T. preferred closed at a net ad
vance of 1%. All of these stocks closed frac
tionally below the best, but at net advances.
j The results in the list generally were souie
i what mixed. Outside gas stocks, especially
| Bay State Gas, were weak, and local gas
! stocks were strong. Brooklyn Union Gas
I gained 9 po'nts. Consolidated Gas advanced
; at one time 2 points, but closed at a frac
j tional decline. Manhattan ranged freely over
: 2 points and lost a fraction net. Toledo &
Ohio Central rose over 3 points, and Pull-
I man 2 points. A feature of the day was the
sharp recovery of silver of %d to 25% din
London and lc to 55c in New York. This
was due to the decision of the Bank of Eng
i land authoritiiLi to hold one-fifth of the
i bank's reserve in silver. Today's price is
[ two pence above the lowest in London, and
! 3%c above the lowest in New York.
i The total sales of stocks today were 238,

LIVED AMID LEAVES.
California Couple Who Passed Their
Honeymoon, in a Tree.
On the property of George T. Marsh, on
i Corte Madera avenue, in Mill valley, Cali
i Jfornia, which is laid out on the plan of a
i Japanese village, there is a house built high
i up in one of the tall redwood trees, and the
: only means of effecting an entrance is by
I climbing up a rope ladder. The house is
! built around the trunk of the tree, which
passes directly through the center of the
' strange abode. The roof is formed on the
branches of the redwood tree bent downward,
and the interior of the structure Is nicely
i furnished. There is a kitchen, pantry and
' large living room, and a veranda, where,
i far above the earth, one can sit and enjoy
! nature's beaut»es without interruption.
Here in this strange and peculiar construc
l tion Mr. and Mrs. C. N. Jennings, of San
■ Francisco, spent their honeymoon. They
f wWUTd climb up the rope ladder a distance of
' twenty feet and reach their abode; then
! they would draw the ladder up and cut off
! communication. When the ladder ls up it is
; impossible to reach the entrance, and one
! must stand below and shout until he is
j hoarse for the "steps" to be let down. From
1 the veranda the scene spread before one is
! typical of Japan. The Japanese gardens of
Mr. Marsh's residence spread to right and
i left with their strange little streamlets and
houses fashioned by the skilltul hands of
The young couple occupied their romantic |
dwelling until the day after the Fourth. On |
that day a garden party for the benefit of I
j the firemen killed in the recent conflagration
that destroyed the Standard cracker factory
in San Francisco w£_ given in the .Marsh
grounds, and the young couple, rather than
be discovered by the visiting hundreds that
gathered, vacated the house in the tree and
left for San Francisco.
Mr. Jennings is a young writer whose
writings have graced the pages of various
Eastern publications. Early in life he sought
new fields to conquer, and, with longing
' eyes toward the West, left his Eastern home
j and crossed the plains to the metropolis oa
1 the Pacific coast. Here among his wander-
I ings he came across a pretty face that he
' vowed he loved and would some day call his
I own. Difficulties confronted him. That his
1 love was reciprocated there was no doubt
! After all the arrangements were completed
! they quietly slipped away and were wedded.
Then lollowed the honeymoon in Mill valley,
about whi-h the people of that section are
Mr. and Mrs. Jennings declared they were
i charmed with their life up In the redwood

j might have been felt if they had taken an
! expensive sight-seeing trip could not be com
pared to the happiness they enjoyed in their
short existence in the canyon.
SHIPPING A CHERRY ORCHARD.
Picturesque Scene Witnessed at One
of the Largest In California.
Probably there is no better known and cer
tainly there are few larger ranches in the
state of California than that owned by the
! Meek estate, says the San Francisco Wave.
; it is situated a little way outside the city of
! Oakland, and it covers a huge tract of land
between San Lorenzo and Haywards. It ls
I spread over 3,300 acres of some of the finest
: fruit-bearing country on the Pacific coast.
1 A thousand acres is in fruit, for the most
part cherries. The ranch is owned and con
trolled by the Meek brothers and their sis
: ters how skillfully may be known from the
; fact' that in spite of hard times and a de
-1 pressed market there has never been a year
'< when it has not paid liberally. A full fcrop
of cherries from this wonderful orchard will
i bring its owners anywhere from $30,000 to $30.
--' 000. Just now the season's cherry picking is
going on at a great rate, and a little army
: of pickers are toiling from tree to tree, strip-
I ping the branches like a swarm of locusts.
The sight is picturesque, for the pickers
! come by families and live in the cherry or
chard in a small village of tents. At the
j height of the season nearly 150 pickers are
j employed. They are of all ages and both
i sexes," as the work is of such a nature that
it can be performed as well by women as by
: men, as well by a ten-year-old girl as by a
. grown man. The pickers are, of course,
1 boarded at the expense of the ranch, and
besides are paid from 75 cents to $1 per day,
'■ so that a wife and two or three children can
make as much money during the few weeks
of the picking season as the head of the house
i can earn during the entire year.
After the picking the cherries are taken over
i to the packing house and handled at once.
■■ The riper cherries are sorted out and put upoD
j local markets, while the more backward are ■
I shipped East. The force of packers can d_- :
i pose of 420 boxes per day. Two thousand
i boxes go to the car load and must be hurried
to their destination as speedily as pauU-lc.
for there is no fruit that loses its flavor
quicker by overkeeping than the cherry. For
the same reason the boxes must be rapidly
marketed, for they will not keep many hours
in the heat of an Eastern summer. There
are plenty of difficulties in the way of get
ting the California cherry upon the dining
tables of the Eastern consumer, but with ordi
nary care and a fair season the prices ob
tainable are not bad. In Chicago a ten-pound
box of California cherries can be made to
bring $1 if properly handled, while in New
York though the Eastern local market comes
into competition, the same quality will some
times sell for 12 cents a pound.
A Pretty Sash of Taffeta.
A very pretty sash is made of blue taf
feta silk. The ends are rounded at the bot
tom and it is finished all around with an
inch-wide taffeta ribbon, with fancy edges
gathered on one edge like a ruffle. These
two long ends are gathered Into a blue taf
feta girdle, with a pointed front and little
fulled in hems on both sides In the back. The
j girdle is made firm with five short whale
i bones, the two in the back about three
inches, the one in front two and the two on
