Weekly Grain and
Provision Review
Chicago, May 8. Famine prices
for corn have been reached this
week. Despite abundance of corn
on farms, acute scarcity prevailed
at the leading terminal markets,
and sent values skyward. Compar
ed with a week ago, corn quota
tions this morning were 5c to
lZc higher, oats showed 2c to
6c advance, and provisions var
ied from 20c decliue to a rise of
60 cents.
Urgent buying on the part of
shorts forced the corn market to
wild jumps and at times even the
hardiest speculators hesitated to
nell in view of the existing railway
traffic conditions, with not enough
grain arriving here to meet hand-to-mouth
demand. Ordinary No. 2
yellow corn soared for above $2 a
bushel, whereas not so many years
ago the farmers' ideal was $1 a
bushel for wheat, not to mention
corn. Tightness of domestic bank
ing credits failed to check In any
lasting way the upward swings of
the market, and the same was true
of reports that the Japanese finan
cial situation showed persistent se-
, vere strain. Only temporary bear
ish influence, too, resulted from
better wealth and more favorable
crop reports, such factors being
more than offset by talk of broad
export demand for wheat.
Oats were governed chiefly by
the action of corn.
Provisions borrowed strength
from grain. Nearly all deliveries
advanced.

OIL -JO RAIL
STOCKS SPLIT
DAY'S RECORD
New York, May 8. Oils and rails
divided the honors of today's stock
market, displaying greater activity
than such favorites as steels, equip
ments and motors.
Royal Dutch rose 4 points to a
new high record and Mexican Pe
troleum was bought extensively,
advancing 12 points. Crucible
Steel featured the high priced in-
; dustrials at a 5-point rise, but other
issues of that group were compara
tively quiet.
The demand for rails began with
heavy buying of Texas & Pacific, at
a gain of almost 3 points. New
Hayen, Rock Island and Missouri
Pacific, also such investment shares
as Reading and Southern Pacific,
made irregular gains.
The closing was strong. Sales
approximated 375,000 shares.

VACCINATE OR
LEAVE SCHOOL
State Health Officer fat East Moline
to Head Off Threatened Small
pox Epidemic
Students atending the East Mo
line public schools must be vac
cinated or leave school for an in
definite period probably several
weeks or until all danger of a ser
ious smallpox epidemic in that city
has been averted, Mayor G. F.
Johnson announced today. The rul
ing becomes effective Monday
morning. Mayor Johnson stated
that he did not believe this action
would seriously interfere with
school work, as only about 10 or
15 per cent of the children are un
vaccinated. There were no new
cases of the disease reported in the
city today. Ten houses are at
present placarded. There are 16
cases known to the authorities.
S. S. Winner of the state board
of health, arrived in East Moline
this morning to make a survey of
the city and see what measures
could be taken to check the spread
of the disease. It was at his recom
mendation that the children were
ordered to be vaccinated. He has
called a meeting of
all factory
heads for this afternoon in the
office of the mayor to persuade
them to have all their employes
vaccinated or forced into quaran
tine. Mayor Johnson this morn
ing expressed little doubt but that
this stringent measure would be
taken by factory owners to stop
the spread of the plague.
Mr. Winner will make a survey of
Moline and Rock Island next week
investigating the number of cases
of smallpox and general health
conditions.

ALEDO MEN GO
WEST TO LIVE
Eight Former Soldiers Propose to
Take Up Government Land in
Wyoming.
Nine ex-service men are expected
to leave tonight for Gillett, Wyo.,
where they will take up claims
which the government offers ex
soldiers. This announcement was
made this morning following the
receipt' of a telegram from Clyde
D. Dexter, former service man, and
now assistant farm advisor of
Mercer county who Wednesday left
for Wyoming as a representative
of the nine Aledo men to investi
gate conditions.
The wire from Mr. Dexter was
enthusiastic in tenor regarding the
homestead land. His wire stated:
"Land, excellent rolling and graz
ing, easily worth $3,000 when im
proved. Advice you to leave Sat
urday for Gillett. Will meet you
there."
The men interested are Frank
Brown, Hays Hall, Monroe Alm
quist, Tom Kenney, H. K. Whittier,
H. A. Doutt, Lex Petrie, Meyer
Giebrich and Chester Painter.
According to the plan, 10 sec
tions will be taken up in one block,
thereby making possible a home
j,... ..
community of comrades which will
afford the best opportunity for close
cooperation.
According to present, regulations
governing the taking of claims,
every man is required to live on his
land six months of the year for
three years. However, there is a
clause providing for war veterans,
which gives credit for every year
the ex-soldier spent in the service.
The local men will only be re
quired to make a stay upon their
land for about six months to secure
ownership, each having spent more
than two years in the service. Of
course, the land must be improved
and tilled, according to the home
stead regulations.

weather conditions, according to J.
M. Sherier of the local weather bu

who bowled in the Wisconsin and

ica an(i Alilwaukee respectively,
wLpsH!1i ,parnprt ha.
eral rolled commendable scores in
the competitive event. Besides the

Parkman and Emil Bjorkman in
the Chicago doubles Wednesday, G.
Lee Candor and Dick Volentine
rolled a trifle over 1,100 pins for a
possible place in the money at the
Milwaukee event on Tuesday. Can
dor also in the singles probably
will reecive a pace with his total
of iS pins. His chances for a
new record went glimmering in the
last game when he had but to pull
a total of 167 to reach the 600
mark in a singles. Ill luck, how
ever, gave him only 145 in his third
game. He had previously bowled
! five games for an average of 200,
or better.
I Four or five of the men returned

ALEDO IN TIE
FOR SEVENTH
High School Athletes Make Good
Showing in Military Tract
Field Meet.
The Aledo high school track
team with a total of 11 points tied
with Macomb for seventh place in
the Military Tract meet held yes
terday at Elmwood.
Stronghurst copped first place,
with the Elmwood aggregation run
ning a close second.
Morrow for Aledo tied the tract
record of 5 2-10 seconds for first
place in the 50-yard dash and also
won first in the century. Baldwin
of Aledo placed third in the 440
yard run.
The showing of the Aledo high
school reflects credit upon Resie
McCullom, who haa coached the
local aggregation.
A large delegation of Aledo root
ers accompanied the team, some by
rail and others by auto.
Every preparation is being made
by county school officials to make
the coming county school meet to
be held in Aledo Friday. May 14,
one of the biggest events of the
time in the history of Aledo. From
every indication the contests will
prove the most interesting of any
in the history of the annual meet.
Each high school will send a team
to represent it in both literary and
athletic jousts.
The winners in the recent liter
ary preliminaries in the Aledo high
school are practicing faithfully for
the county event and should give
a very good account of themselves.
