Street, Chicago, in their last special m:ii
ket letter say: 1 he environments of the
wheat market have undergone no material
change during the past week, but there baa
been more than the usual interest mani
fested in the course of values which have
fluctuated with rapidity accompanied with
occasional exhibitions of excitement. As
j the true relations of supply to demand be
comes better understood, the market finds
friends in what is termed the invester
class of traders, who buy moderately on all
sharp declines when so called professionals
are undecided as to what course to pursue.
The absorbing of offerings by this class of
dealers, who do not sell out every time the
market shows signs of weakening, has con
tributed largely to the numerous reactions
from the depressions occasioned by heavy
short selling, and is of more real value as
a sustaining influence than anj other purely
speculative factor. The situation abroad
has encouraged the bear pany to put out
liberal lines of short heat, for in endeavor
ing to provide for future necessities loreign
ers have succeeded in securing more than
is requisite for immediate wants, and the
surplus renders them for the moment
somrwhat independent. Their require
ments for the remainder of the cereal year
will be so great, however, that even a mod
erate decrease in the movement from ex
porting countries will soon deplete their
stocks and compel a renewal of purchases
in American markets. Heerbohm, a recog
nized English authority, estimates that the
United States and Canada will have to be
depended upon to furnish during the re
mainder of the season 144,000,000 bushels
and expresses doubt as to their ability so
to do. His doubts are shared by many
observant dealers in America, who believe
that the remaining exportable surplus is
much less than the probable requirements.
Our visible stocks have beun decreasing,
and with even the present volume of ex
ports, will rapidly diminish if receipts do
not materially increase, of which there are
at present no indications, notwithstanding
the reports of a general improvement in
country roads.
Farmers seem unwilling to accept cur
rent prices or have marketed a greater
proportion of their grain than they have
received credit for. So difficult has it
become to obtain good miliing wheat in
some sections of the winter wheat territcry,
that many mills have ceased grinding, and
No. 2 red winter in our market is selling at
May prices. The growing crop having
been well protected by snow during the
recent cold weather, sustained no new
damage by freezing, but from the Pacific
Coast come complaints of insufficient rain
fall and retarded seeding, which is now
five weeks late. The surplus remaining
west of the Rocky Mountains is reported
as small, and the western seaboard markets
cannot much longer add, except in sma'l
quantities, to the on passage supplies.
The corn market exhibits none of the
signs of animation which characterized it
during Novemler and December, and has
quite generally been forsaken by specula
tors, for wheat and provisions. There is,
however, an active business in the cash
property for shipment to eastern and sea
board markets, the movement south of us
being quite free. Producers are evidently
unwilling to accept present prices, fcr more
favorable weather for shelling and bettei
roads for transportation to interior stations
fails to materially increase receipts.
Dullness has been the chief characteris
tic of the oat market, although there have
been occasional spells of speculative ac
tivity. As in corn, the major portion ot
the business has been confined to purchase
and sales for eastern shipment, the demand
being excellent and the outward movement
quite large. The fluctuations have been
occasioned more by the sympathetic influ
ence of wheat, than by any outside news of
a bullish or bearish tenor.
Provisions have maintained their usual
independence, being but slightly affecied
by the rise and fall of grain. There has
for some time been a speculative element
operating for an advance, which has suc
ceeded in profitably working the market
up from several sharp declines. The task
has been rendered comparatively safe and
easy because of the attitude of the packers,
who, having large quantities of manufact
ured product in their houses, are not averse
to an advance, and willingly afford sup
port when it is most reeded. Until they
finally dispose of their property it will take
unexpectedly large supplies of hogs to
prevent a recovery from any serious breaks
in the market.
La Crlppe.
No healthy person need fear any
dangerous consequences from an
attack of la grippe if properly
treated. It is much the same as a
severe cold and requires precisely
the same treatment. Kemain quiet

Cough Remedy as directed for a se
vere cold and a prompt and com
plete recovery is sure to follow.
This remedy also counteracts any
tendency of la grippe to result in
pneumonia. Among the mati3'
thousands who have used it during
the epidemics of the past two years
we have yet to learn of a single
case that has not recovered or that
has resulted in pneumonia. 25 and

several things. One of them was a lot

weighted his shoulders and hands.

But he wouldn't sell when he was

This happened three times.
Then the millionaire put his arm
through Hepworth's and took him up
to his office one day.

None do so little for the verv poor
of New York as its very rich. Efficient
workers among the poor are at present
generally drawn from the poor them
selves, or from the middle and pro
fessional class. No one need wonder
at this. Effectual charity work and
the requirements of modern society do
not easily consort. A very small pro
portion of those who possess enormous
wealth in the city subscribe liberally
t its various charities: comparatively
few can be counted on for a ready
support in any properly conducted
and hopeful philanthropic movement;
and fewer still are found willing to
fulfill the more difficult, the more
necessary duty of gaining personal
knowledge of the needs and wrongs of
the poor through personal study of
their situatiou.and friendly intercourse
with themselves.
I say. such attention, such knowledge,
are not likely to be given by the very
rich. To win fortune to-day implies a
singleness of purpose, a concentration
of all the faculties of the man to the
doing of one thing. The very rich
man must be a very busy man if he
would make large sums or keep large
sums of money. The difficulties pre
senting themselves to his ambition are
like tough wood, that nothing but the
keen edge of an axe can deal with, and
to be sharp means almost of necessity
to be narrow. Great riches are apt, as
