After an experience, of twenty years in handling Wall Paper, we have no hesitancy in sayin
O'
t3
that we are better satisfied wjth our stock this season than with any selection heretofore made.
For Exquisite Designs, Large Assortment and wide range of prices, our stock is unsurpassed in
Cass county- Our prices run from 10c to $1.25 a Bolt. That means a double roll, and is not
misleading.

JJarreZs of lli'll News on H i-.mI.
'"Bread riots" report e l in Home and the
provinces of Italy. Agitation is rife in
the German reichstas for the removal
of the import duty by that government,
and rumor has it that Russia is con
templating the prohibition of grain ex
ports. The announcement of removals
of import iruties by Italy and Spain
arrived almost simultaneously. To fur
ther intensify the situation Leiter an
nounced the sale of 2.000,000 bushels of
wheat for May and June delivery to a
Liverpool syndicate at a price of $1.50
a bushel. Closely upon this report the
news of a failure on the board was
posted. The "tip" went around that
before the fun! trading hour, the most
sanguine pr dictions as to th price of
wheat would La rraliv.-.d and May wheat
would command tl.r.O a b ishel.
l.ool. illlC for I'ai ! a res on ' liaii?.
Many years have elapsed since cash
wheat sold at the present price, and
still the Leiter boom hes not reached
Its zenith.. The failure or e. V. Wood
worth, a scalper, which was announced
with liabilities at from 0(0 to .$4,
000, is regarded the initial of a" series
of important collapses. Just rne year
ago Leiter forsook his real estate bus
iness to "dabble" in wheat speculation.
Since that time he has held the upper
hand, and today his hold is stronger
and more certain than at any stage of
the campaign. Out of 10,000.000 bushels
of May wheat soid short in this market
there is no wheat actually available for
delivery. The frantic demands from
abroad and from hitherto unexpected
sources have served to corral all cash
wheat for export and milling purposes.

One of the most interesting exhibits
at tho world's fair was tho sea fish at

constantly surged about tho aquarium
from early morn til night, gazing with
interest at the strange ocean fish and
kindred species, some of them hideous
in form. The government is arrang
ing for the same exhibit at Omaha.
The great glaes tanks are already in
place and 18,000 gallons of sea water
have been shipped to arrive " about
