Weekly Grain and Provision Review Chicago, July 10. Extremely heavy selling and severe cutting of prices have attracted unusual at tention this week to the corn mar ket. Optimism in regard to the crop outlook was a leading factor, together with big receipts. Com pared with a week ago, corn values this morning Ehowed a setback off llc to 15c; oats were down 4c to 5c to 5c, and provisions varying from 75c decline to an ad vance of 45c. Rains and high temperatures that made - field conditions superb for corn would alone have been suffi cient to bring about radical bear ish sentiment in the corn trade, even if there had not been reports of enlarged receipts which on one day here totalled 500 carloads. Be sides, however, a good deal of no tice was taken of the difficulties of financing the 1920 crops. So near ly unanimous were the consequent views of traders that at times the corn market was almost without support. Predictions that black rust might menace the safety of spring wheat failed to have any lasting opposite influence on the value of corn, and so likewise did talk of the remote possibility of a long period of cool weather. Declines In oats were checked by opinions that farmers would not accept less than 70 cents a bushel. Packers' buying, rallied provis ions somewhat. Sflyer. New York, July 10.

A considerable sum is needed to cover he expense of op erating the children's playground and the two days' drive is being made with the idea of securing the necessary money and getting the work properly started. Mr. Allen stated recently that tl was up to all the people of Aledo rather than to a few of the commit teemen, whether or not Aledo should have supervised play grounds for the children this year. In some quarters of the city, inter est in the children's work has ap parently been lacking'. Next week will determine the final course tp be taken in the matter. CASS DAMAGED IN AUTO COLLISION A number of Aledo people were alarmed yesterday about noon whun the police bell at the corner of Colleve avenue and Seventh street was heard ringing. Investigations proved that two automobiles had collided on East Seventh street and the occupants were endeavoring to settle the blame, when nearby resi dents sent in a call for the chief of police. When Chief George O. Reed arrived on the. scene the trouble had mostly subsided. A large tour ing car driven by Frank Wagner and a sedan, driven by Ira Greer had been smashed up. The tour ing car was much the worse for the collision. Greer placed the blame on Wagner and the chief held him for a short time, releasing him upon promise to pay the damage done the Greer machine.
