Wheat mar ket is described as in a strong posi tion, due to Canadian and Russian damage. The big export sales of 2,- 000,000 past two days have helped sen timent One of the biggest local spec ulators says the wheat market Is no respecter of persons. On the news it has turned resilient and is no longer a sale. Most important wheat news concerns the Russian wheat estimate by the agricultural institute at Rome. They guess Russian spring wheat at 390.000,000, about 160,000,000 below last year. This means an export sur plus of 90.000,0000 to 100,000,000, about 50,000,000 below 1913-14. In con Junction -with the poor crop in Rou mania. this Russian report if correct means that we have seen low points on wheat. We believe the wheat mar ket will continue to rally. We advise suitable purchases. Temperatures were 96 to 102 over central west and down to Oklahoma on Thursday. Chance of 75c for old corn crop months increases ideas that De cember corn operations are to be lift ed to be in line. December corn ran up to My8 on June 10.

I, has sued in the supreme court in this district for $5,000 damages, the Thomas A. Edison company. Inc., be cause a moving picture of herself and her $5,000 Persian has oeen displayed on moving picture screens. The cat, claimed by Miss Connelly to be the handsomest of its breed in the United States, is named Sandal phon. A year ago last January she put him on exhibition in a cat show in Madison Square garden. As usual, Sandalphon carried off the prize and returned with his mistress to Roose velt. Miss Connelly then had no idea that she was to be a feature in film shows throughout the country. The moving picture men were busy at the cat show and turned the cam era on Miss Connelly without her knowing it, she alleges. A few months later friends of Miss Connelly advised her that she and Sandalphon were shown in many poses. These friends represented to Miss Connelly that she did not appear to advantage in the picture, and was the laughing stock of every audience where the pictures were shown. Then Miss Connelly went to see her self and her cat. She saw Sandalphon In her arms. She was petting and fondling him. The picture was cap tioned "$5,000 Worth of Cat" An appeal was made to the Edison company to have the pictures sup pressed, but the company refused. KILLS TWO U. S.

Formerly Baber was chief of police of Tulsa. " - r 3 1 Daily United States Weather Map Adversity's Only Sure Bet Don't place too much dependence in human nature not because men in Spheral are untrustworthy, which 1 do not mean to imply, but because they are human. Promises are often born of momentary enthusiasm and made with the best intentions of ulti mate fulfillment. But things happen. condition change, ardor cools; the sentiment of liberality is superseded by one of selfish interest and pledges made in the best of faith are forgot, ten. Everything human Is frail and mu table. The nature of a man may change with each new environment, but the coin of the realm has a fixed and dependable value. You may fail to cash in on promises, but you can always collect 100 cents on a doller bill. That's the reason I say to you that it's all right to have faith in men, but put your implicit trust in cash. It's the only sure bet in the moment of ad versity. Maurice Switzer in Leslie's. U S.
