Canada was dry. lth ten peratures of 90 to 92. Temperatures in many sections of the northwest and corn belt rose to 94 and 96. There are private reports of recent Kansas and Missouri rains. Locals evidently play ed for a warm map this morning, and if an early corn bulge much selling should result. The corn bulge of Thursday is regarded skeptically, but the sharp advance swrpt the locals along. The newspapers do not give any adequate reason for the big corn bulee. The 'August corn par adds about 150,000,000 to the report if still around 85 condition. Chicago corn stocks of 2,500,000 should be well re duced this month. July and September corn should rally after dips. Decern ber corn should hold most of its up turn until rains. If no rains, Decem ber corn will advance. Most of locals suggests it has a fair chance to touch CO cents. Shrewdest say the Decem ber corn upturn was due to overdoing of the early June corn break. Wheat is a bulge sale. Bulges are expected, Canadian dry fears are probable. Up to July 10 black rust receives little credence. Southwest exporters have 12.000.000 wheat sold to go out via Galveston that will never see terminal. Oats should follow corn for present. On the northwest oats rust news they should advance. Liverpool wheat is firm and our wheat 6hould hold for a few days. We have excellent, corn reports from Kan sas and reports of 90 per cent for wheat in southeastern North Dakota. Corn as a rule in the corn belt is one to two weeks away from the radical danger line. Map shows temperatures of 62 to 68 in Canada. It is raining at Winnipeg. There is rain all over North Dakota.

WEATHER CONDITIONS. Showers and thunderstorms In the Rocky mountain region and the upper Missouri valley and high temperatures in the central valleys have resulted from the northwestern area of low pressure which has increased in in tensity and is central over southern Saskatchewan and from the depression which remains over Arizona. Ocea ilooal showers and thunderstorms have also occurred on the gulf and out!i Atlantic coasts and in the Ohio valley and Tennessee. Relatively high pressures are noted from the At Isntic coast westward to the Missis sippi valley. Owing to this distribu tion of Ur pressure, generally fair and continued warm weather is indicated for this vicinity tonight and Satur- OBSERVATIONS. High. Low. Prep.

BROTHER KILLED BY TWO SISTERS Dixon, HI., Man Shot Down in Field, Women Taking Turns Using the Revolver. TROUBLE OVER PROPERTY Have Dispute Over Calling Doctor for Aged Father, Who Is an Ex tensive Land Owner. ARCTIC EXPLORERS SAFE, CAPTAIN BARTLETT SAYS Nome, Alaska, July 10. Captain Robert Bartlett of the Canadian Arctic exploration expedition yesterday posi tively denied that he had sent any re port to the minister of marine at Otta wa which could be construed as in dicating that eight men of the Karluk's crew were missing and probably lost. Captain Bartlett said he was at a loss to understand how the Canadian officials obtained the information which they gave out as coming from him and said that as far as he knew all the men who were on the Karluk when she was wrecked in the Arctic Ice last February were safe on Wran- gell island. Captain Bartlett yesterday cabled the minister of marine at Ottawa ask ing for an explanation of the state ment that he had reported eight of the Karluk's men lost. Dixon, 111., July 10. Because they thought he was trying to beat them out of their share of their father's property Mrs. Lee IIutton and Miss Lillian Byers shot and fatally wounded their brother, Emmanuel Byers, late yesterday afternoon. Each sister fired several shots from a revolver at the brother, and four took effect. With all his wounds Byers was able to talk on his way to the hospital, where he died. Mrs. Hutton and her sister were ar rested last evening and bound over to the grand jury without bail. Both Sister Use Revolver. .: Byers was working in his father's nay neid with his son Merrill and a man named Sam Weschler when, ac cording to his statement, his two sis ters came into the field, one carrying a revolver. She opened fire on him. two shots taking effect, then handed the weapon to the other sister, who also fired two shots into Byer's body. A call was sent in to the county offi cials, and Deputy Sheriff Giffrow re sponded. Byers was taken to the Ster ling hospital late yesterday after noon. Makes Statement Before Death. Byers just before going upon the operating table made a statement that his sisters were the perpetrators of the snooting. It is said there had been bad feeling it. the family for some time, and that this was further augmented recently b;- a dispute over calling a doctor for David Byers, the father, who is ill in bed. He is a large land owner and wealthy. Emmanuel Byers is survived by the widow and seven children. POLITICAL ADVERTISING. For County Treasurer.

NEW PACT WITH ENGLAND IS ANNOUNCED BY PAGE London, England, July 10. Walter H. Page, the American ambassador, speaking at the peace centennary meet ing in1 the Metropolitan tabernacle last night made reference to a new treaty between the United States and Great Britain. After referring to the cordial rela tions now prevailing between ' the United States and Great Britain and complimenting Viscount Bryce on the part he had played in clearing up all difference between the two countries, the ambassador said it was the policy of the American people to have an alliance with none; waere there was perfect friendship alliances were not needed. The old arbitration treaty between the two countries, however, had been renewed for another period and he was free to announce that a new treaty was being concluded whereby a com mission was to be set up, to which either . government could refer any question arising between them. Both governments, he added, promised not to begin hostilities until this commis sion had investigated and submitted its report. The announcement evoked great outbursts of cheering. Washington, D. C, July 10. That new -eace treaties with Great Britain and France soon would be signed by the United States recently was an nounced by Secretary Bryan. The pacts are modeled after those recently signed by the secretary with repre sentatives of 16 other nations.

RICHMOND. Mr. David Cordill who lives at 1625 West Seventh street, in Davenport, made the following statement: "I suffered with kidney and bladder trouble for some time. The pain in my back became so severe at times that I could not stand up and my rest was very much disturbed as I was obliged to get up so often during the night. I began using Plant Juice and it relieved the pain in my back at once. My bladder trouble is much improved, I sleep well and am seldom disturbed at night" Diseased kidneys cause pain and fever in the region of the loins, dull pains in the back which often extend to the bladder and groins with a feeling of weariness in the hips and sometimes lead to Bright's disease and should receive immediate attention. Impure blood Is one of the primary causes of kidney disease. No remedy has yet been discovered that can equal Plant Juice for all kidney trou bles, it has been used in the treatment of all known forms of kidney diseases and in most every case has proved its marvelous curative powers.
