Making a short turn a rock-pile was struck which overturned the buggy and broke the double-tree thus freeing4the team. In the melee the sheriff received a bad cut above the left eye and the bone of the nose was broken.

Following; closely upon the heels of the French removal of the im port duty on wheat, Italy yesterday took similar action. 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. GKKKMVOOU 1TKMS It rained hard here Wednesday.

One of the most interesting exhibits at tho world's fair was tho sea fish at the government aquarium. A crowd 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 May 15. The fish will soon follow. Tho fresh water fish will be sent from the government hatcheries. It is said the entire government exhibit which was behind the others at the worlds fair will be comp ete in evei -y detail by June 1 and in some respects it is even better than wi.s nude at Chicago.
