Nine Cent Jump
The wheat market taken a jump of
uino cents per bushel in twenty-four
hours, being quoted on the Chicago
board of trade at 98 .1-8 cents at the
close of business ou Tuesday.
The news of the niqblization of the
Itrltish battle squadrons, which was
received just before tho close of tho
day's business, cleared tno pit, which
was crowded with excited brokers as
they frantically endeavored to place
a many orders as possible before ti.o
time limit. In the event of war tak
ing place between Austria-Hungary
and Servla, It seems safe to predict
that before the leaves fall, wheat will
bo worth one dollar per bushel.
