of the pictured abodes of Noah and his

The driver, who had been of course
ludicrously overpaid, settled down In
Ills corner and announced ills intention
of seeing through to the end this most
extraordinary and heaven directed oc
currence. The innkeeper and his wife
busied themselves with the breakfast,
and Guy made remarks every now and
then from his phrase book, which were
usually Incomprehensible, except when
they concerned a further supply of

courtesies of the country, he had ac

The meal was ready at last. There
were eggs and ham and veal, dark col
red bread and coffee, sutlicient for
about u dozen people. The driver con
stituted himself host, and Guy, with a
shout of laughter, sat down where ho
was and ate. In the midst of the meal
tho olilcer reappeared, ushering In a
small, wizen faced individual of un
mistakably English appearance. Guy

XACTLY n week later, at five
minutes after midnight, Guy
l'oynton, In Immnculato even

Montmnrtrc In Paris. Ho made his
way through the heterogeneous little
crowd of men and women who were
drinking at the bar, past the scarlet
coated orchestra, Into the Inner room,
where the tables were laid for supper.
Monsieur Alfred, satisfied with the ap
pearance of his new client, led him at
once to a small table, submitted the
wine carte and summoned a waiter.
With some dlljlculty, as his French

The room was only moderately full,
for the hour was a little early for this
quarter of Paris. Nevertheless he was
quick to appreciate a certain spirit of
Iloliemiauism which pleased him. Ev

American from the further end of the
room raised his glass and drank his
health. A pretty, fair haired girl lean

Cent Rise in a Week.
Chicago, May 14. In tho most son
sational opening In the history of the
Chicago board of trade, wheat shot
past tho dollar mark. Heavy realizing
bales pushed the price backward some
what, hut at the close the market was '
strong, and, according to the majority
of speculators on the board, the de
mand upon which the late advance has
been made is still unsatisfied.
The net advance for wheat was 4
cents. From the low point of Monday I
of last week July wheat has advanced
13!54c, September has gone up 15:,l4c
and December lC-yic.
It was a certainty that a strong
bulge would take place lu the wheat
market at the opening. Country or
ders have been pouring In seemingly
In an endless stream and In ohedlcnco
to them brokers stood ready to buy
millions of bushels at the market.
Shorts were In a highly norvous con
dition and eager to cover. Tho result
was that as soon as tho gong sounded
there was a terrific roar of voices all
anxious to buy and nothing to sell.
The market was too big and broad to
bo followed by any certainty and
brokers filled orders frequently 7
cents away from tho point at which
they had hoped to buy. Tho con
fusion was so great that for a few
minutes but little actual business was
transacted, tho brokers lighting and
struggling In the effort to get hold of
wheat from anybody at any price.
December had a wider range than
either of tho other options and tho
opening quotations ranged at all fig
ures between OGVdc and $1.03.
Tho rush of buying orders seemed
to come from almost every city In the
United States which was situated
along a telegraph wire. They camo
from Winnipeg and from Louisiana,
and from points on tho Pacific and At
lantic seaboard. Tho professional
traders wero of tlio opinion that tho
opening was a little too vigorous. As
soon as trade steadied a triflo millions
of bushels wore thrown upon tho mar
ket in realizing sales and tho advance
for a time was checked. Tho buying
orders, however, still poured In and
the market soared up again. Again
tho long wheat came out and brought
about a reaction, and again tho coun
try buyers forced it up. Tho situa
tion was too strong for any man or
any cliquo of men to stop. Tho coun

bo had. There were no claims In any
direction that tho market was being
manipulated. The general opinion
seemed to bo that tho advance waa
based on natural conditions which aro
certain to curtail in a large degree
tho world's coming crop of wheat.
Tho advices from all parts of the west
nnd northwest confirmed all previous
ronorts of damage by waether and in

Canadian northwest claimed thore was
no possibility of reseedlng In that dis
trict and that ovory day of delay

Cablegrams reported tho mnrltets
at Liverpool and Budapest to be In a
highly excited condition, with prices
advancing strongly. Liverpool was de
clared to bo affected by gloomy re
ports from Russia and It was tho be
lief of many promlnont commission
mon that Kurope will bo forced to buy
heavily in the American marhot and
that tho American market, Instead of
boing ablo to moot this demand, will
bo scarcely strong enough to supply
such wheat as Is needed for homo con
sumption. Such prominent traders
as William H Tlnrtlett and James A.
Patten declared that tho conditions
warranted tlio Ronsational advance In
prices, declaring that tho wheat prob
loin for this year will be a difficult
ono or- European buyers to solve.
Among 'smaller traders, predictions
wero made that before tho present ad
vance lins stopped July wheat will go
certainly over $1.2G, and possibly to
