Jobbers nro very muob pleased with the

are very fair indeed , und the pres

exceptionally ticnvy trade during the next
six months. Prices show n tendency to ad
vance. Jn dry goods , canton and woolen
flannels are 3) ) @ 10 per cent up , walla table
ell cloths are worth 25 per cent more than at
the llrst of the season.
In groceries , canned goods show consid
erable llruiucss , and as western packers
have been unable to make contracts for fu
ture delivery , nnd hence have been unable
to raise money from their bankers , It Is
thought that the pack will bo greatly cur
tailed and prices wilt rule high. Corn und
tomatoes have shown much activity lately
nnd Also stocks iu llrst hands are pretty well
sold up.
Lumber and hardware show fair activity
nnd n llvc'.y business is in sight.

It Wasn't His Funeral.
A week or moro IIRO a gentleman
whom wo will cnll Mr. Blank died , says
the Washington Post , and the time nnd
plueo of his funeral were announced in
the papers. .Another gentleman , whom
wo will cnll Blanker , saw the notice
nnd said to himself :
'Dear , dear , my old friend and bcno-
fuctor is dead. I knew ho was in Wash
ington , und intended to call on him ;
hut now it is too late. "
And he censured himself for his neg
lect of the man who had boon his friend
when ho solely needed a friend.
Tortured by'his conscience , ho sought
to make up us boat ho then could for his
fault. He sent the most magnificent
ilornl piece ho could buy , nnd on the
day of the funornl.wnsono of the most
demonstrative of the mourners ,
-s Alter' ' the casket had boon lowered
into the grave and th'b"c.ardmonies wore
ut an end , the repentant Mr. Blanker
turned with tears streaming down his
ayQS und said to a gentleman walking
beside him towards the carriage :
"lam almost broken-hearted at the
loss of my dear old friend. "
"Was he a rolativoV" asked the ether
"No , but wo went all through the war
together and ho was my host friend and
benefactor afterwards.1' '
"Thoro must be some mistake , " said
the gentleman. "Mr. Blank was not in
the army. Ho has boon in this country
only a few years. "
"Tho deuce you say ! " said Blanker ,
forgetting his grtof ; "then , by thunder ,
I've been chlbf mourner at the wrong
man's funeral. " And ho straightway
looked up his old friend , who was in excellent -
collont health. It cost Blanker a good
deal for llowors , but that isn't a circuin-
stance to what it has since cost him for

A strange discovery ono that is caus
ing the thoughtful to ponder over the
unwritten past was made yesterday by
a French citizen near Gainesville , Tex. ,
says a suecial dispatch.
Haying occasion to sink a woll. Mr.

selected a spot in a valley , near a
ravine of great length , nnd which , dur
ing heavy rains , is transformed into a
raging torrent , doposltig in the valley

After reaching a depth of four foot ,
and while in a formation of limestone
gravel that had continued almost unin
terruptedly fromtho surface down , Mr.
Sonnries came upon the vortobro and
ribs of un animal. The riba wore al > out
the size of a small pig's and rapidly
CiU'ofullyunonrtliingthobonos toward
the tuporlng oud , Mr. Sorainos came to
the rattles , which ? what ) counted , num
bered seventeen , the largo'st measuring
BX inches nuross.
Attracted by the strange find , the
neighbors gathered in and the work of
unearthing the monster was prosecuted
with vigor.
After laying bare nineteen foot of
the remains of the monster of ether
time , imagine their consternation at
IIinline the qntirc skeleton ot a man of
tremendous stature iu the stomach ot
the skeleton of the snake.
The remains of thojimui and tliu sor-

scornful-looking noso. Probably Toby
didn't rollBh the errand overmuch , oa
before accomplishing it he "worked the
growler" on his own account , standing
In the center of the street , looking bacli

Wheat SoOuroo a Firm Start In
tlio Morning.
Tlio Provision Xrado Htiow.t Homo
Improvement In Tone The
Few Native Cnttlo Ro-
colvcd Soil Quickly.
CHICAGO , July 13. [ Special Telegram to
TUB BKK. ] Wheat had a firm start this
morning. Trades In December wore made
at the opening on n basis of TSJjfc nnd In July
at 70Jfe. December advanced to 79 @ 7lfc ! ,
receded to 79o , and on bettor cables , un
settled weather In England and further re
ports about the Russian crop damage , moved
tip to TOJfiC , Then cumo n budget of reports
foreshadowing n hugo movement of wheat
from the country and the market began to
case off. This bearish news came at n time
when the scalpers wore pretty well loaded up
n anticipation of n substantial re
covery. Jt was accompanied by heavy
selling ordova from St. Louts , to
which was added the pcoulativo offerings of
the local boar contingent , with Hutchlnson
and T.inn , and Place , the Pittsburg plunger ,
n the foreground. The result of the pres
sure , moral and actual , was a break of about
lj < c iu the whole list of active futures. The
weakness in futures was Intensified by the
ibcrat selling of July against wheat bought
n the country and pointed this way. Mo-
Henry had n big line to sell ana broke the-
market from 79 fc to 70J o. There
was n reaction of } e or thereabouts
from the bottom , but uot much trading was
done after the break. December sold off to
77Jfo and September slid down to 75 % @
75Xc. On the decline ttioro Was heavy un-
oading of long wheat and towards the bot-
ta scalpers very generally tools tholr profits.
There sotnnod to bo no disposition , however ,
to take in 'any of the Important lines , Spec
ulative sentiment is decidedly bearish , prin
cipally in anticipation of the approaching
i > ig movement of winter wheat. St. Louis
ms extraordinary statements to make about
; ho wheat that is going to be received there.
Thus far the actual receipts have fallen far
below expectations , though the movement is
increasing rapidly. It will have a hard time
keeping up with the estimates , however. The
receipts nt Minneapolis are also looming up
wonderfully , and n week or ton days contin
uation of the movement at its present pro
portions will clean out the country ulovator&
and leave very llttlo grain to come forward
the first of August until the next crop be
comes available. The situation at Minneap
olis is strongly suggestive of n "corner" in
speculative grudo there and prodigious ef
forts are being made to crowd wheat into
that market for delivery en July contracts.
Little wheat has gene to Minneapolis from
here and tlioro is wild talk of wholesale
shipments. Cables wcro quiet and steady in
tenor. Now York had no export news of
importance to communicate in this market.
A fair degree of activity in the cash
market is reported. Lake engagements
for 90,000 bushels are reported
and the arrivals for Monday are
estimated at 101 cars , the most of which is
now , The visible supply is expected to show
T. decrease of something llko half a million
bushels. The closing ran go of prices was us
follows : July 76c , August 75 c , Septem
ber 73J c nnd December 77J c. As compared
with yesterday , this shows a loss of lo in
September and % o in December. The total
shrinkage in December since the market
started back three or four days ago has boon
about tj c. July has'lost about Sc.
The corn market was very dull and extremely - ,
tromely weakuat > the opauing , with a fair
show of strength- but the declining tendency
of the wheat market gradually effected trad
ing ui'tho ' other cereal und was mainly re
sponsible for its subsequent weak
ness. There was a fair- demand and
only limited offerings of cash corn. Foreign
markets were lirm nnd export inquiry at
Now York was reported good. The pros-
'poets are generally considered good for the
growing crop and this lays back of the
market and paralyzes any attempts at ad
vances. Export clearances were quite mod
erate from Atlantic ports yesterday , but for
the week amounted to 1,439,500 bushels.
Moro distant futures felt the bear pressure
in about an equal degree with seller July.
The latter declined from % o to J c nnd so
nlso did September , the closing quotations
being 35 o for July and 35 @ 35 o for
Oats were fairly active with a liberal
speculative business recorded. * The
market was nearly steady , although
the early firmness was not
fully sustained with receiving houses
free sellers. On the otbor 'hand there was
an increase for May , with September shar
ing in the activity. The first , named sold
largely at BSQMkfc , while September de
clined @ > 4C tol&i. . The noxi month "was
easy around SISjjC , with July at about J o
premium. Receipts wore liberal , nnd No. U
oats to go to store sold at 22 > c.
The provision trade showed some improve
ment In tone. The moderate buying of pork
by some of yesterday's raiders developed a
disposition among tailors nnd miscellaneous
shorts to coyer , and with a better demand
than expected the market naturally gained
in strength.
Porlc was the most active article in the list ,
and on the call tbo transactions in It approx
imated 13,003 barrels. Lard and snort ribs
also received fair attention , and , for Satur
day , business all around made quite u good
showing. Shippers' purchases of cash lard
nmounted to 3,550 tierces nt $0.22tf$0.37 ( > .
Cash meats were again slow , 1(1-1 b green
hams being quoted at & % c and 10-lb sweat
piukled hums at 10(3lu ( e. In speculative
lines prices as n ruio experienced only
limited changes. Pork at the adjourn
ment stood unchanged as compared with
yesterday's closing to Ca higher , lard un
changed to 2o butter and short ribs un
changed to a trlllo easier , Future trading
was centered mainly in September , which
sold at $11.25@11.40 for pork , $0,83K < iii0.87 p
for lard and $ j.72K@5.7ti for short ribs.
Short ribs and lard for the saino month
closed at the best prices obtained and pork

$10,00 bid and short ribs at $5.0.2& Lard
for January told at $0.02 (30.03. (

A Cat's Liong Kant.
That A cat hath nine lives Is n prov
erb us ancient as the hills , anil its truth
was verified to-day , says a Johnstown
special to the Plttabiirg Dlapntoh. The
worlcmon unearthed a live cat in thd
debris near the Baltimore & Ohio sta

duced to n shadow , but the animal was
still kicking. Its neck was not any
thicker than that of an ordinary bottle.
The animal wiis taken to the Rod Crasi

The Hcnlty Market.
Some of the leading real estate men nro
taking their annual vacations , expecting the
usual lull In tho-iuarkct during the next nix
wcoks. Illght hero is whcro they nro very
apt to bo mistakun. Though the trade of the
past week has boon light there are several
things on foot which show the strong unflqr'
current nnd Indlaato plainly that the regular
annual dog-day lull In the market will not bo
uoticoablo this year. The sale of the opera
house proDorty was but a starter for the or
ganization of several schemes the consum
mation of which will create renewed activ
ity in real estate circles. It is generally ac
cepted that n now opera house will
bo built aad property owners and realty
speculators are uusy in nn effort to
secure the attention of the prospective promoters
meters of the enterprise to eligible locations.
The corners nt Seventeenth and Douglas ,
Twentieth and Dodi < g , Eighteenth and llnr-
ney , Twentieth and St. Mary's avenue and
several other sightly locations hnvo been
named as especially suitable for operr , house
purposes. The decision of Doonng & , Co. ,
the agricultural implement dealers , to erect
a mammoth -warehouse at the corner' of
Eighth street nnd Capitol avenue , is expected
to cause a great change in that part of the
city and to cause an activity in realty in thnt
part of the Thlid ward. The location is one
of the best in the city for warehouse
purposes and it is surprising that
jobbers have uot taken possession
of it sooner. The proposed Improvement
will result in tbo removal of the undesirable
class of citizens who have so long infested
that quarter nnd will render eligible for le
gitimate business several blocks especially
suitable for such improvements ,
There is reason to expect ether big deals
on Inside property. ANowYont business
man who is willing to invest 81150,000 , in good
insldo property , has had a representative in
the city for several days and has received
quotations irom several owners. Among the
locations under consideration nro the south
east corner of Fourteenth nnd Capitol avenue -
nuo nnd the southeast corner of Fourteenth
und Davenport. In 'case either site Is pur
chased it will bo improved by u line bricK
There Is considerable activity too In the
manufacturing outlook. The organization
of the Omaha Stove Manufacturing com
pany assures for Omaha another big indus
try. In addition to this , a capitalist from
North Adams , Mass. , bus boon In the city
for several days ascertaining what induce
ments Omaha would offer for the location
nnd operation hero of a mammoth iron foun
dry. While nothing detinito has been deter
mined upon , the knowing ones give verbal
assurance thnt Omaha will secure this great

tion ! ) that have been in vogue it has boon im
possible for a house to outlive its apparent
usefulness , ' Frame structures that wore
mere shells when erected have boon trundled
from ono street to another as room has bean
demanded for substantial improvements ,
until they are finally landed in a'dilapidated
condition on a choice lot in some handsome
residence addition , surrounded by bright ,
comfortable cottages. Here they are
patched , repaired and repainted ,
until they cost as much ns n
new house. They nro never destroyed until
n lire comes along as a blessing in disguise
und assists decay in the flnril demoli
tion of the building. But coming back to
the proposed ordinance. This .provides that
when an owner wants to move a house upon
his property ho must first ascertain the
wishes of his neighbors in the matter and if
a majority of tlioso in tlio block decide that
they don't want au old second haud structure
moved Into tlio neighborhood , that settles the
matter and the owner will have to place a
substantial improvement , if any at all , upon
his property. If the ordinance Is passed , and
most of tbo counciluion favor it , it will bo in
teresting to note what disposition will bo
made of some of the structures that must bo
moved soon for big improvements , those on
the Sixteenth street sldo of the now uost-
ofllco site for instance. It will mark a now
era if they are torn down.

The Now York stele market was fairly
active , but the fooling was unsettled. During
the early part of the week tlio uncertainty
regarding the railroad situation in the west
created a distrustful feeling and Induced
free selling of "granecr" stocks , so that-tho
"short" interest created the proceeding
week was increased to such an extent as to
bo unwieldy. Union 1'acllie , St. Paul , Atchison -
ison , and Hock Island broke sharplyunder
selling pressure , but a change for the bettor
was produced by news from , the west thnt
efforts wcro being unide nt the , of
tlia presidents to lostoro harmony
umoug. the western lines. The fact
that the Alton nnd Fort Woith
were not represented nt the meeting
had a tendency to create greater uneasiness ,
and the Alton , in which little hus been dona
heretofore , sold off 9 points. "Shorts" to cover and found the market over
sold , and ju their efforts to buy they created
a brisk competition , which wan muroatou by
the report that efforts were being uindo to
secure control of the Chicago , Burlington Sc
Northern nnd take it out ni a disturber of
rates in the northwest. It was assorted that
the Chicago , Burlington & Quinoywns to
put in its 30 per cent of holdings of that
road , and otbor roads wore to supply
the money to purchase the balance.
This started sharp buying and trading
Increased perceptibly and. advances of
2 to 8 points wore recorded. The failure of
the presidents to agree , however , produced
heavy selling , mid about all the appreciation
waslost. , Speculation in trusts was less ac
tive , but the fcollng unsettled , good declines
being in turn followed by sharp advances ,
and the losses wcro about recovered at tlio
close , but a sudden turn again carded prices
down , and sugar closed with a net loss of ;
over 0 points nnd on n load of 7
points. Coal stocks wore traded in
fairly. hut they failed to attract
especial attention. The only important
t feature wan the declaration ot u quarterly
dividend ofyt per cent on Jersey Central ,
theilrstin a number of years. As It had
boon In a measure anticipated by the recent
advance , the appreciation was only 2 points.
Most , of The aotlVo list closed lower than the

and steady and without , special features.
The ac-gregato sales for the woolr were
1,331,000 shares , against 039,000 shares the
preceding week.
Considerable interest has boon manifested
In the leading erniu markets smooths last
weekly review and speculative trading Was
quite active. Local operators traded uiora
trcoiy than for some time past and orders
from outside partiei showed some enlarge
ment. In a general way the fooling was
consldurably unsettled and prices , fluctuated
frequently within n moderate range. Crop
prospects are quite favorable , the weather
during the past week or ton days being more
favorable for harvesting operations u nil , for
growing corn , nnd it is eciienilly conceded
thnt larger crops will bo 'secured
than last year , and the quality also wll ) no
very good. Now grain is beginning to ntovo.
and during the next month or two the re
ceipts undoubtedly will bo llbnral. Supplies
of grain in tlio principal murhoU have Won
further reduced ; excepting of outs , and the
movement of old grain from first hands lias
boon moderate. The domestic markets liuvo
shown a little more strength nnd foreign
advices were imwe favorable to holders.
Crop advice * Trom abroad exhibited very
little change generally good in , western
Europe , but rather poor IU a greater portion
of eastern Europe. The shipping
branch of the trade .lias shown
a llttlo moro activity , being oncourugcU by
the reduction In freight rates. Corn anil
oats wore forwarded ruthur freely to eastern
markets and wheat was scattered quite
liberally through the Interior to supply the
wont of millers. Pncos for the leading
cereals were on nn advancing aculo during
the early part of the wbok , with rather JTroo
purchasing by the 'shorV Interest. Toward
the close a weaker feeling was developed and
lower prices submitted to , duo to romtltlerabla
realizing by holders of small nunntltios
and also to liberal aW by
"aborts. " Provisions were unnettloa nnd
weak during the greater portion
of tlio week and lower prices wcro accepted
for all loading descriptions. The shipping
demand has fallen pff materially , while the
packing of hogs at o'l ' the principal western
points Is progressing actively considerably
in excess of the returns for la t season , The
receipts of oattlo and hogs were liberal at nil
tlio leading markets and lower prices : were
Seeds were unsettled and rather woolt
owing to better crop prospects , llnx bolus
