iy wheat In Chicago reached 11 1. The
Omaha pxchange crowd u excitedly
atr-hlng the Hrlng Chicago quotation and
joining in the bull movement. A consul
arable number of iliitnrii watched the
performance from the gallery. The contin
ued high market wan due to the war condi
tions anil the reported ahort supply of
wheat. The manipulators have taken ad
antage of the widespread feeling of confi
dence and are bulling the market for all It
la worth. Everything; opened atrong and
the highest point waa reached shortly be
fore the cloee, which w.'ia slightly weaker.
During Chicago a advance of v In llay
'heat Omaha only gained Ulfcc. Chicago
opened at fl.itfV the closing figure of Fri
day, and this was the low ".pure for the
day. It advanced to 11. MV oroke to the
half, advanced to fl.Urlfc, broke again to
II. "6. then soared to 1 .. weakened to tl.ni"1
and at the cloning minute gained a quarter.
Omaha opened at 87c, Vc over the close,
and advanced steadily to 49V. Ho'.d rs
wre not very ready to part with this fu
ture. Chicago reported foreign houses good
buyers and longn taking profits, satisfied
with gains and afraid to hold over Sunday
July wheat, while not the sensation,
shared In the advance. Chicago new July
opened an eighth over the close and ad
vanced lc, cloning at 93V. This future
was In dumand locally, being bid up from
the opening Hie to hoc, but the longs seemed
eatlMlerf with their holdings. s
Omaha May corn was again active and
large amounts changed hands. Opening
at 47c, He over the close, It fell away
to 46Vic and then advanced to 47c, and
from there wis bid up to 4!4c. Chicago
rliMted only c In advance of the opening.
S6Hc. The strength In wheat was used
there by longs In taking profits. The
strong local demand for July corn brought
that market tip from 4V4c to 47dC
May oats were on the market during
the early hours, with no demand, and ad
a consequence broke from 42V4c to 42c, but
a Inter demand brought them back to tha
opening figure. March oats advanced lo
under a strong demand.
The range ti. prices of Omaha grain for

CI11CAOO, Feb. 2". A senostlonal ad
Vance of 4'c a bushel was srored In thirty
minutes today by wheat for the May de
livery. The phenomenal price of ll.if was
readied, the chief Incentive being rumors
of the Russo-Japanese War spreading to
other nations. Talk of stoppage of wheat
shipments from Russia and from Argen
tine was a secondary factor. The dHy on
'change hk one of the most exciting In a
number of years. Compared with yester
day the final figures today are 3c higher
for May wheat and 'i'c for July. May
corn is up Vu'sc, oats c, provisions 15
The wheat market opened excited and
strong. Shorts were active bidders for the
May option and initial quotations on that
delivery were uhthanaed to l'c higher at
II .Kii 1 P4. Julv opened y lower to 'e
higher at 92'Mc. The advance was due
mainly to the strong cables. Liverpool fu
tures being up a penny, Paris Vfilc and
Antwerp lic per bu. The gain at Antwerp
was thought to be especially significant a
caused by threatened stoppage of ship
ments from Argentine and Russia. A re
port stated that railroad employes In Ar
gentine were on the verge of a strike. The
transportation of troops and war muni
tions In Russia Is greatly restricting the
movement of wheat in that country- In
addition to the bullish foreign quotations,
conditions In the Vnlted States were surh
as to cause fear as to the sufTiclencv of the
domestic supply. The demand from shorts
was met promptly by selling orders for
the account af the leading longs. Smaller
holders also had wheat for sale. After
touching 11.04. May quickly dropped to
tl.f2, while July declined to Kr.
For a short time the market held steady
around these figures. As soon as the sell
ing stopped, however, prices sgnln moved
upward under urgent buying by shorts. The
fact that the board would be closed on
Monday. Washington's birthday, appeared
to be materially effective In bringing out
the heavy buying orders, traders being
loathe to remain short over the two days'
receas. Late In the session there was prac-
Ically no May wheat on the market and
horta were blddina- .ffi4o over the market
price In order to get It. The high point
was reached at 11.07, a gain of 4'4c over last
ignt a close. i ne market ror July was
lmost as good os was that for May. but
there was more of the daferred future for
ale and the advance was not as sensa
tional. The price for that delivery rose
to 96c. or 3Vc above yesterday's close.
tteaitzing sales resuiteu in May declining
to I1.05H and July fell back to 94-Vc. An
other rally followed in the last few min
utes of trading. May closed at ll.OMi and
my at 96"c. Clearances or wheat ana
flour were equal to 3M.uuu bushels, primary
receipts were 475.0UO bushels, compared with
377.3UO bushels a year ago. Minneapolis,
Duluth and Chicago reported receipts of
772 cars, against nil cars last week ana m
a year ago.
The ei-.-ly corn market was weak, mere
was general selling after the opening and
apparently not much corn was wanted.
May opened unchanged to c higher at
tlMVc, but declined gradually to Kc. To
ward tne minuie or me session ine marsei
began to feel the effects of the extraordi
nary strength of wheat. Shorts became ac
tive buyers and there was also a good
commission houso demand. Prices re-
ponded to the Improved buying, May ad
vancing to 67Vc. Although profit-taking
arried the price down rrom ine mgn pomi
ho close was strong at 9i7Ti57e. July
howed a sain of nuc. closing at 000,

-oca! receipts were cars, none 01 con
There was an active general iraae in
oats, with the best demand coming irom
shorts. Selling early In the day in the way
of liquidation caused a little easier feeling,
but on the decline the demand became gen
eral and prices advanced easily. The' main
Influence In the situation was the strong
wheat market. After opening unchanged
to o higher at 45lg4&c, May sold be
tween 46c and 46'4c, closing at 45?fec. July
was up lc at the close. Local receipts
were lu7 cars.
The provision market was active and
strong throughout the entire day. Buying
by packers and outsiders, together with
covering by shorts, wero the factors that
resulted In gains throughout the whole list.
Small receipts of hogs, with higher prices
at the yards, and the strength in grains
were Instrumental in Bringing cm mj uj

this morning and they bt ought generally
huuuy prices us compared wilh. yesterday,
f or iho week receipt shew an mcnuse
over bust week of auout o.oou head, but as
compared Willi the corresponding1 week of
lusi year there is little change. For the
year 10 dale there is a decrease in receipts
amounting to auout 14,ouu head.
Tuesday proved to be the low day of the
week tor lu.t cat 1 10. Since thai i.ma the
tenaency of prices has oeen upward and
corn-fea steers can sufely be quoted a
quarter higher than Tuesday, or tuily H'f
luc higher than the close of lust week.
'1 here is considerable unevenuem in I lie
market, some sales showing a much bi-tier
guin thun that, but It Is the mu-e desirable
grades that show the greateai advance. The
common und pait-l'ut Kinds, such us buyeis
are nut anxious for, are not over a u mu
lilicher for the week and are slow sale.
Common to fair rattle are Quoted from 13.25
to 83. i&, fair to good tron $3.i5 to 4.Aj, good
to choice m m 4.Z5 to 4.N and l'aiiby cattle
from $5.00 to 85.60.
The cow market is also nlghir for the
week and In tact prices have improved
more than on steers. Tuesday was the low
day, but since that time the demund has
apparently been in excess of the supply
and prices are all the way from 10c to 25o
higher than the close of Inst week. The
greatest advance has been on the good to
choice grades and the lesst on the common
to ralr. earners and cutters are selling
from 81.75 to $2.40, fair to good from !Iti
to 12.95 and good to choice frjra ti.'M to

13.00 to $3.75 and the commoner kinds from
$3.00 to 83.00. Veal calves are cuoted from
$4.00 to $5.50.
There has been a pretty fair demand for
stockers and feeders all the week and in
fact all desirable grades have changed
hends readily at stronger prices, Bales
showing an advance In many cases of lo'ti
15c. Common kinds have not changed
much and have been rather slow sale. The

HO(JS There was not a heavy run of
hogs here today even for a Saturday and,
as the demand on the part of local packers
was again liberal and reports from other
points favorable to the selling Interests, the
market ruled active and fully a dime
higher. In fact a good many sales were 10
t)l;c higher than yesterday's general mar
ket. As trading was quite brltk. the bulk
of the limited offerings was soon disposed
of. The extri-nie clonn of the market was
not quite as brisk, but still the prices paid
were not so much different from the early,
sales. Light stuff sold largely from $5.2)
down. The bulk of the mixed and good
heavy hogs sold from $5.20 to $5.30 and
prime heavies from $5.30 to $5.37.
For the week there Is but little change
from last week In receipts, but as cim-
fiured with the same week of last year there
s a small decrease. The tendency of
prices has been decidedly upward prac
tically all the week and a net gain over
the close of last week of about 30c Is noted.
This carries the market to the high point
of the year to date. As comparec with a
vear ago, however, the market Is nearlv
$1.75 per 100 pounds lowrer. As compare!
with two years ago the loss only amounts
to snout sk ano as compared with three
years ago there Is practically no change.
Four yeurs ago today, or in 1900, the aver
age eost was $4 7K. or 60c lew than todav.
In 1PM the average was only $3 50, or $1.75
lower man tooay. representative sales

SHEEP There were practically no sheep
on sale today, but for the week offerings
have been very liberal. As conmare.t wltu
last week Hie gain amounts to about 1?.j0
nean; ana as compared with the corre
sponding week of last year there is an
Increase of about 13.u0 head. In spite of
this liberal run, though, the market has
been active and stronger, the demand ap-
patently oemg tuny yuai to the supply
Ths advance over the close of last week
amounts to about K"25c on all desirable
grades. Yearlings, lambs and ewes of 1
duality show the greatest ti.iln. while old
wethers show the least. Trading has been
active all tha week, so that each day's
offerings have been well raril for. Ths
general tone to the trade Is much better
than It has been for some time past.
There Is soma demand 'or feeders, but
the only kind on sale are warmed up onrn-
teds wbKU ar uvl (at enough, for kilisrs.

PARIS, Feb. 21. Almost with as close
attention as they are giving the Russo
Japanese war, the French authorities are
watching events In the Balkans. From
Bulgaria assurances have been received
that it does not propose to take any meas
ures to precipitate war, and most of the
leaders of the recent Insurrection have Indi
cated their purpose to see what tho reforms
will accomplish before renewing the rebel
lion In Macedonia,
Moreover, It Is not believed here that the
Macedonian committee has as much money
as heretofore with which to carry on a
conflict. Nevertheless, It is well understood
that Russia's pro-orcupatlon In the fur east
greatly Increases t,h chances of war in the
Balkans. Turkey . declares its purpose lo
scrupulously carry out the reforms pro
posed by the powers, but a high Turkish
official here tonight said '.he attitude of
his government must necessarily depend
on the attitude tf the Macedonians and
Bulgarians. He said:
Wl) know that the Macedonian committee
has teen purchasing large quantities of
arms and we know It hus Deen buying fezs
like those worn by the Ottoman uoop.

Sydney C.rundy's savage satire, or maybe
It Is a truthful presentation of the facts
in the case nt any rate. It Is nn Illustra
tion of n phase of social life we happily
know of only by hearsay "The Degener
ates," wis given with such Illuminating
Interpretation nt the Poyd Inst night hy
Mrs. Langtrv nnd her associates that the
dullest must have felt the force with which
the author drives home bis terrible ar
raignment 'of those frivolous persons who
wnstc their lives In the pursuit of what
they denominate "pleasure." forgetting;
nil thnt Is worth while In actual living.
It Isn't exactly pleasant to contemplate
thi nctual tragedy Involved In this and
call It "comedy." yft such Is the modern
intepretntlon of the term thnt anything
that Implies less thnn physical death la
no called tragedy; moral death Is 'still
soiin thing to be laughed nt.
Mrs. I.nngtry's Mrs. Trevelynn Is not en
tirety satisfying, and yet It Is so generally
good that one dislikes much to find fault
with her Interpretation of the role. She Is
temperamentally suited for the exact ex
pression of some of Its stronger points, and
brings to theso a certain concentration of
nervous energy thnt lifts the character far
above the level; nnd then ot times she dis
plays a lack of Interest in the part she has
that allows It to fall; It may be that this
Is a purt of her art, for Mrs. Trevelyatl
was not exactly happy In her surrounding,
nor satisfied with her conditions. The
artificiality of her pleasure, nnd t,he reality
of her wrongdoing was apparent to her,
und she even KtruB.nled against It, so It Is
quite possible that Mrs. Iituigtry's apparent
lapses pic only those that actually belong
to the clr meter of a woman now desper
ately bent on hnving a good time as she
sees a pood time, regardless of cost, and
at others equally bent on following her
better Impulses, but finding herself In such
n situation that she cannot Immediately
put ' her good resolutions Into operation.
Tho difficulty ot this is easily seen, nnd
that Mrs. Langtry Is alio to iniiko the part
so good as she does is a tribute to her
reserve force und her capacity for repres
sion. Tho company acquits itself with quite as
much praiseworthy effect ls-ncss in the
Grundy play ns In the Fcndall comedy,
although the two present a marked' dis
similarlty. in motif and consequently In
the treatment of the topic. And, while the
subject Is not one that has any of the ele
ments of attractiveness about It, It Is SO
presented as to make Its moral plain as a
pike staff, and In this result tho company
again shares with tho Mar the meed of
praise bestowed on tho performance.
A very large audience attended the mati
nee presentation of "Mrs. Deerlng's Divorce"
yesterday, and attested Its apprucla'.'on by
enthusiastic applause. The attendance list
night, too, was uncommonly good for Satur
day night, and star and assistants were
well rewarded for their excellent and earn
