THE GRAIN MARKET.
The wheat market opened firm and
higher, being influenced by the firm
ness in America and private reports of
frost in Argentine. Later there was
further covering by shorts, and prices
advanced an additional '4 to with
the undertone strong. There were
fewer and firmer Canadian offers and
I predictions cf small Russian shipments
with our estimate of lijjht world's sh)'i
mcnts ibis week other than America.
Theie was an improved demand for
spot, and the continent was making in
quiry for parcels with cargoes firmly
held. The comparative weakness in
Buenos Ay res with our reiorts of
warmer weather in Argentine checked
the advance. At 1:30 p. m. the market
was firm and -?s to higher thau yes

ZEBRAS IN AFRICA.
They Are a Fearful Pest and a Menaca
Zebras in Africa are a nuisance and
a menace to civilization, according to
John T. McCuteheon in "Hunting Ad
ventures In the ISis Game Country."
Then there's the ubiquitous zebra,
almost as numerous as the kongoni.
You see vast herds of zebras at many
places along the railway, and there
after, as you roam about the level
spots of east Africa, you are always
running into herds of them. At first
the sight of a herd of zebras is a
surprise, for you have been accus
tomed to seeing them iu the small
numbers found in captivity. It is a
source of passing wonder that these
rare animals should be roaming about
the suburbs of towns in hundred lots.
You decide that it would be a shame
to shoot a zebra and determine not to
Join in this heartless slaughter.
Later on jour sentiments will un
dergo a change. Everybody will tell
you that the zebra is a fearful pest
and must be exterminated if civiliza
tion and progress are to continue. The
zebra is absolutely useless, and efforts
to domesticate him have been without
good results. He tramps over the
plains, breaks down fences, tears up
the cultivated fields and really fulfills
no mission in life save that of supply
ing the lions with food. As long as
the zebras stay the lions will be there,
but the settlers says that the lions are
even preferable to the zebras.
Under the old game ordinance expir
ing December in, l'JOO, a sportsman
was allowed two zebras under bis
license. Under the new one he is al
lowed twenty! That reveals the atti
tude of east Africa toward the Jaunty
little striped pony.
THE TONIC OF VICTORY.
Army Surgeons Say It Acts Almost as
Bonnette, a French army surgeon,
writes in the Presse Medicale of the
extraordinary indifference to the pain
of operation manifested by the soldiers
of Napoleon while the great eoinjueror
was sweeping victoriously over Europe.
While the defeated soldier is full of
imaginary terrors, subject to panic,
madness and treason, the conq'iTor, on
the oth:r hand, is intoxicated with suc
cess, says the New York Medical
Journal. Nothing, not even the morbilic
microbe, can resist troops who believe
themselves to be inviacible.
Victory is the most powerful of re
storatives and deepest of auaesihetios.

Tha Polar Bear.
The polar bear is a pretty formidable
brute. A specimen of this siecies has
been killed weighing 1,000 pounds and
measuring nearly thirteen feet from
nose to tail. The strength of the polar
bear is beyond belief. One was seen
feeding on the body of a white whale
