CHICAGO, Juno 2S Wet weather again
csused fnlr upturns In grains today, hut
the absence ot any liberal outside business
and cleaning up trades over Sunday re
stricted gains to some extent. September
wheat closed .: higher; July corn lo
higher. September corn, tVic up; July
oats WV: higher and September oats
fe',e higher; provisions closed unchanged
to ZVfco higher.
September wheat opened Wc higher
at iL'HtK'-Vic and sold to 'ti:nc early.
3hroughijt the southwest copious rains
had fallen again to damage the harvests.
J'arls quotations were as much as IV.
higher, Influenced by unfavorable weather.
Uhere was a little early comnrtsnlon house
business and a fair export demand devel
pped. The teaturt of the day was In the
opening call for December option. A bear
ish sentiment overcast the pit, however,
lor some time and worked against higher
prices. Reports came that most of the
Wheat had been rut In the country where
ruin were falling. Many of the local
crowd took profits rather than to wait
ever Sunday and stand the possibilities of
lair weather. The little strength was
apped and July eased to "2c, closing
firm 'Ac up at (2-V Local receipts were
89 cars, 3 of contract grade; Minneapolis
and Duluth reported 3"K cars, making a
total of Ml cars for the three points,
against 2t last week and 347 a year ago.
J'rimary receipts were 4fi0,i0 bu., com
pared to 6il.00o last year. Seaboard clear
ances In wheat and flour equalled 767.UOO
Corn still showed marked strength on
the demand by shorts. Wet weather was
reported generally In the corn belt, b'jt
whereas It helped Texas It hurt the crops
alsewhere. Advices from many sections
Jtated that the main root of the plant was
otted off. At the opening prices were very
Strong. rihorts bid July Vfll'c higher at
PjTtic the latter the new record price for
the crop. Offerings for profits at top fig
ures at once brought a slump to fi9'c, but
the constant bad reports trom crops, es
pecially from Iowa, pushed prices up again.
Receipts were a little larger at 2.a cars,
but little attention was paid to statistics
The weather; and the short bidding ruled
the market. September and December ad
vanced with July, but free profit-taking In
these two options brought partial declines.
July closed strong, lc up, at B9Tc; Sep
tember sold at 61 7,c and closed nrm Vjj
He higher at 6H4c
Oats continued their upward course again
today. The wet weather was reported as
hurting this cereal worst of all. No. 3
white, ci.sh, sold as high as 64c. and there
was almost nothing offered for sale In
Spite of the good demand. The same good
buying that has been In force for a week
was In evidence again. Selling was only
by locals for profits. The general senti
ment In the pit was decidedly bullish.
Bhorts covered freely at the start and July
reached the top figure of the option again,
l7c. Dips followed the liquidation, which,
however, was small, but all the stufT was
taken and July, after selling at 4tk, closed
ttrong, mc up. at 46SC. September sold
etwetn &s'c and 34c and closed firm V'1
fco up, at 33VUc. Keceipts were
Provisions were verv dull. Offerings were
jcarce. but there was little dlsnosltlon on
the part of the packers to shove prices up.
Hogs were light and prices Kood. Including
small advances, which, however, were not
all held. September pork closed unchanged
at $18.47"!. September lard 2c higher at

HEW YORK STOCKS AXD BOIDS.
8 lock Market la Stagnant with Few
v Operations In Specials.
NEW YORK. June 28 The general stock
market today was practically inert. There
were some speculative operations In a lev
special stocks, but thev had no appreciate
effect on the general list. The bank state
ment did no reflect any notable recupera
tion, but the condition of the banks is well
maintained, despite the week's svndlcato
operations and preparation which have
presumably been made for the July settle
ment. The statement was considered nega
tively favorable therefore. There Is an
expectation, however, and there may bo
some shifting of loans on Monday.
Today's money and exchange markets
were nominal, as is usual on Saturday, but
sterling exchange at Paris fell 4c. Foreign
bankers believe that some gold may go out
Of today's special movements the rise In
Chicago or Eastern Illinois was due to a
suggestion that the treasury stock of the
company may he distributed to stockhold
ers. Illinois Central was moved up to a
fraction sbove the price touched on the
day the new stock Issue was announced and
closed at the top. The general market ran
ofT slightly In the closing dealings.
The report of a voluntary increase of 10
Ser cent In wages by the United States
teel corporation seemed to make those
stocks firm, although the Industrial depart
ment generally was heavy. Reading also
was heavy because of a rumor that the
president had requested an opinion from
the attorney general whether the anthrclt.i
coal combination is In contravention of the
antt-trust law. The closing tone was rather
The dull bond market this week has
moved mostly In sympathy with stocks.
United States 2s declined 14. the 8s 4 and
the new 4s 4 per cent, as compared with
the closing call of last week.

PATTLE Accomnanvlns a marked de
crease In receipts this week, there has been
a very decided advance in prices 01 iai
cattle. Toppy dry lot beeves have not
hem verv nlentlful and there has been a
steady and vigorous demand right along for
stock of this kind, prices advancing fully
25c during the first part of the week. Good
fat cows also met witn more savor aim
brought better figures, but there has been
a very dull and declining market for the
half fat and grassy grades. Southern
cattle are taking the place of the com
moner natives and packers have all been
mean bidders on anytning snowing grass.
val calves are bOc to $1.00 lower than ten
days ago and bulls, stags, etc., are also
Belling 26&6uc lower than last week. In
Blockers and feeders there has been a de
cided slump In the lightweight, low grade
stuff, while values huve been reasonably
well sustained for anything with quality
and weight. A few western range steers
have arrived, but they have sola to the
feeder buyers as a rule.
A train load, biuea direct, witn a ioaa or
two of butchers' stock made up today's
supply. As Is usual on Saturday, the
market was quiet, but nominally un
changed from that of the past few days.
HOOS The week closes with a limited
run, but the total number received shows
an Increase over the week preceding and
also over the corresponding week a year
ago. The receipts for the month have been
liberal ana will snow an increase) over
June, 1901, of around 35,000 hogs, and at
the same time prices this month are about
sop. hlirher than a year ago. The week's
trade has been quite satisfactory to sellers,
values snow sugntiy nigner man Mon
day. However, on one or two days trade
was on the dragging order. On Tuesday a
record for high prices was made for June,
when tops Bold up to 27.75.
The market today opened slow, but
steady, and the bulk of the hogs show up
between $7.50 and $7.60, the same as yester
day. Sellers were Inclined to price their
holdings pretty strong and ocaslonal loads
of choice hogs possibly showed up a little
better than yesteraay, dui in tne main
there was no special change In the trade,
and, while the movement was not very
brisk at any time, tne nogs aepi setting

FOREST FIRES IN CALIFORNIA
Flames Are Raging In Toolomne
County and Giant Treea
STOCKTON, Cal., Juno 29. A special
from Sonora, Tuolomne county, to the In
dependent says: A serious forest fire Is
raging in the mountains of Tuolomne
county along the Tuolomne river canyon
and traveling fast southeast In the direc
tion of the Merced river and the Tuolomne
big trees in the vicinity of the Yosemlte
road. The flames are four miles wide and
are defying all efforts of a large army of
Tho fire started seven miles from Crock
er's station on the Yosemlte road and rap
Idly swept to the southeast. Soldiers have
been sent out from Wamona, on the South
ern road to Yosemlte and will reach the
line ot fire today. Crocker's station on the
Yosemlte road is safe but Holar and Hazel
Green are probably doomed and It Is feared
that Tuolomne big trees will go In the con
flagration. The toll house at Crane's Flat,
on the Yosemlte road Is reported destroyed.
The brush Is high and dry and the Ore is
sweeping along with fearful rapidity.
The report here is that a government
survey party under J. G. Hooper and D.
A. Jones, has a contract to survey all the
surveyed townships In the high Sierras of
that eectlon, built a signal fire laet night
about one mile from Pilot Peak, a promi
nent landmark near the summit and later
covered it with dirt and returned to camp.
A heavy wind arose in the night and scat
tered fire over the hillside and gave it
headway before the surveyors could reach
It. The Are is in a heavily wooded section,
and the destruction of valuable timber will
be very great.

Imperfect digestion Is more
serious snd far-reaching in
Its effect than Is generally
understood. This state of
health Is like an open gate
way to dlaesse because
germs that may tie in the
air we breathe at once seize
such an opportunity to
sttsck the vital organs.
They slowly undermine the
strength snd energy, snd a
collapse comes usually at a
time when a strong healthy
body Is most needed.
I.v s fine regulating tonic
w.Mch filters through the
boc'y, cssting out injurious
m a . t e r, stimulating the
digestion snd nourishing
and lUrengthenlng every
weakened part. It also puri
fies the blood, shsrpena the
appetite sud creates energy.
In this way it restores the
system to perfect order.
