Chicago. 111.. Sept. 10. Strength in ' outside market on Wednesday was ! i not explained by the news, especially ! as Liverpool was weak. There is a decided cnange in the var news. Germany appears to be adopting a defensive attitude, owing to the weakness of Austria. Austrian news is now the key to the war. A collapse of this resistance is appre hended, in which case Austria may be the big war sufferer. Washington dispatches cover feeling out of peace possibilities by all coun tries. The question of indemnities stands in the path of immediate peace. Without doubt Austria is the weak spot of the central European alliance. Meanwhile Italy, Spain and the Balkan states have declared for the allies, sen timentally. The Herald says it is the belief of traders that with any let-up of demand from speculators, and for eicners and liberal receipts, that prices will recede. Examiner thinks there was very lit tle in the Wednesday news from abroad to encourage holders of grain in this country. Tribune says reports as to export wheat, takings, are mixed and looks jfor cny large wheat receipts to have a Department of Agriculture.

OBJECT LESSONS ARE GIVEN Breathing Dolls Show Effect o Sleep , Ing in Room With Win dows Closed. Visitors at the Illinois state fair this year are to be afforded the opportunity . , . . and hlgnly of seeing the most unique Instructive health exhibit yet snown in this country. It will be entirely different from any former health ex hibit wherein it is to be a demonstra tion of health facts by means of me chanical models, cartoons, and other Ingenious devices, rather than a dis play of cold statistical facts and pla cards setting forth more or less un welcome advice. The character of this year's exhibit will be such that every man. woman and child "attending the fair will want to see It; noqe will see it without profiting thereby. Seven large booths will be occupied by this exhibit in the balcony of the i Exposition building, and among the more interesting features will bo the following: The Breathing Dolls. As an effective method of calling public attention to the importance of proper ventilation of living rooms, nothing has yet been devised that equals the socalled breathing dolls. a mechanical device of great attrac-! .Miss Ella O'Donnell is primary teach tiveness and wonderful teaching force, j er.

In each j latter's uncle, George Mitton and other room, two sleeping figures are shown relatives. in bed and at the ordinary breathing intervals the exhaled breath is seen as it leaves the nostrils. Just as we see our breath on a frosty morning- In the room with closed windows and doors, the unventilated room, the air soon becomes so thick and foul that the figures in bed can hardly be seen, whereas In the room with opea win dows, the air keeps clear and fresh. The contrast in the air conditions of the closed and the open room Is so striking as to leave a lasting impre3 slon upon the mind of the observer. The remedy the open windows is apparent to all. The public hea"lth authorities of the stato renlizlni? th:it thfr in nn health issue naramount to that of nromot i:ijr proper ventilation of all buildings and encouraging more or the outdoor lite . are devoting two booths to exh.bits designed to impress this fact unon the public mind. Immediately ad ioiring the booth containing the breathing 1 dolls is another in which numerous in genious devices, cartoons and dis be plays of out-door apparatus found and demonstrated. will When one stops to consider that im proper ventilation and foul air are chiefly responsible for the develop ment of the two diseases tuberculos is and pneumonia which kill upwards of 20,000 citizens of this state every year, the need of popular-instruction along these lines is at once apparent. To Save the Babies. In the Child Hygiene and Infant Wel fare sections of the state health de partment's exhibit there will be much of great popular interest. First of all, there will be a mechanical device demonstrating the extremely high death rate prevailing among infants in this state. As an endless procession of dolls pass In review, one every five is struck down by out of ' death" and passes from sight.

QW WILL LET THE BOARD DO IT Plan to Pave Hill1 District by Private Contract Falls Through. The property owners in the Twenty first street paving district on the hill have receded from their stand taken some time ago when on petition the city council gave them the right to lay concrete or macadam streets by I . I private contract. Tuesday evening a meeting was held. Property owner3 on Twenty-first :treet between Sixteenth and Twenti eth avenues were present, as were those on Sixteenth and Twentieth avenues fcrtween Twentieth and Twenty-second streets. Those present at the meeting voted unanimously to give charge of the work of paving the district over to the board of local Improvements, claiming that they found it expedient to do so. The owners, however, still favor he use of concrete on the speci fications they have prepared. tP1 II CARBON CLIFF J Mr. and Mrs. William Leuder and daughter Nina Rachel of East Moline -isited a few days with Mrs. Ieuder's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Scott Kennedy.
