WE FEED 5 THE WORLD. | s s_ - >-• - ■ & Special Correspondence' of the Globe. 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 castle. 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: world. 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 The Nations of the Earth \ T _" *i TtJi-TTi Mil r\ j. y C Must This Year Look to -> 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. 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 low mortals. TWE Saint paux, globe: mondat, September i 3, 1897.

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, 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, --i 705 shares, including: Atchiscn preferred. * 7.020; Burlington, 17.040; Lo_'sv.-l!e & Xs*«h --j ville, 6.400; Manhattan. 8,500: Missouri Pa ! clfic, 9,235: Missouri, Kansas & Texas pre -1 ferred, 11.S20; Northern Pacific preferred, 3,590; Northwestern, 3,700; Reading, 10.375; Rock Island, 15,350; St. Paul, 12,930; St. Paul & Omaha, 3,350; Southern Railway preferred, 5,100-, Union Pacific. 11,520: Wabash preferred. 3,450; Bay State Gas, 9.100; Lead, 3,200: Sugar preferred, 3,345; Western Union, 5,560; Chi , cago Great Western, 4,600.

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 oriental workmen. 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 daily discussing. Mr. and Mrs. Jennings declared they were i charmed with their life up In the redwood I tree and added that the pleasure which 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.
