Eat I males of sales oy the country laat night ran aa high aa I.OOO.OOO bushels, mostly No. 2 red. The hard wheat haa not yet started spring wheat tha whole, and weather la fine. Indlcatlona are for higher temperature and continued near conditions. While little export dusi ness vn said to have been wurked, and little wheat sold to miller, thla bualneaa la so email that It give no hope of any material quantity being worked. The fu ture la purely a matter of the Ideaa of consumers here and abroad, unlets, of course, some accident ahould happen In the northwest to cause alarm fur the spring wheat crop. Corn held Arm, with tome complaint coming In reaped to lack of warmth and moisture through thla Btate. It aeema that rain and higher temperature would be beneficial to the Prop under existing con ditions. Country acceptance continue light. Oete onntinue to drag, gales were large again overnight, resulting In pressure on the near deliveries, the far month going off on realising and favorable reports re specting the crop.

The week startad out with a good, strong market on all kinds of cattle, sn J with the best grades quoted a little higher. The trade waa fairly active, the receipt changing hands freely at current prices. The intervention of a holiday seemed to mark the coming of a change. During the latter half of the week tho trade waa slow, and, while the best kinds were quoted about steady, it was very evi dent that the wire edge was gone from all other gradea. For the week, aa a result, it would he safe to quote the best rattle fully steady, with the medium to common kinds lei5c lower. This Is the season of the year when Texas csttle art always used aa a club to pound down the marktt on the common to, medium grades of na tives and that Is given ss the reason for the weakness that haa been developed this week. Cows and tielfers of good quality sold verv well during the first part of the week, but during the latter half buyers begsn talking about shipping Texas beef, and it became very evident that they no longer wanted the grass cows at the price that they had been paying. Friday's market was very much demoralised on that kind. For the week the best fed cows and heifers showed but little change, while other kinds sre 25f4c lower, anil In some cases probably aa much as $0e lower on the more common greasers.

Pen of novelist has mrely woven so In teresting a romance as that Involved In the marriage In Davenport. Is., a few days ao of Miss Anna Elisabeth Whiting, niece of Rear Admlra! Whiting, to Albert F. Afong of Honolulu. While his bride 1s thoroughly American, Afong Is the sou of a full-fledged Chinese. Still more unusitnl, however. Is the fact that he has no less than thirteen sisters, three of whom have married Into the American navy, as he may be said to 'have done, and a fourth Into the army. One of these is the wlfo of Resr Admlrsl Whiting, so that by this latfst union she will become the aunt Ss well aa the sister of young Afong. Of the others, one la the wife of Lieu tenant Rlggs of the navy; one of Jame W. Brewster, who served on the cruiser Harvard In the Ppanlfh-Amerlcan war, and a third of Lieutenant Andrew 3. Dougherty of the army. Albert waa the last mem ber of the family remaining unmarried. His courtship, like that of hi sisters, began under the coecanut trees of the Pacific Is land, and th family looks to him for the perpetuation of a name already known In every capital of the world, and especially In the best circle along the Pacific coast For twenty year naval officers have told of the delightful hospitality afforded them In the Afong horn while their ships lay at anchor in Honolulu bay Tourist have come back from Hawaii telling of the gorgeous seml-orlental man si on of Wing Ah Fong the name has since been Americanised and Mrs. Concepclon Ah Fong, who la a mixture of Spanish and Portuguese. Every one who ha been In the islands talks of the charming manner. the brlght-hued gown, the languorous trop leal ballade and the fund of good nature of the highly attractive progeny of Wing Ah Fong. millionaire, of the South Sea. Along about 1838 a young Chinese bearing this nam came with a shipload of his fellow countrymen to Honolulu. He wns unususlly Intelligent and genial, and, with a little capital, soon built up a prosperous business In Chinese crockery, silks and bric-a-brac. In a short time h was tin leading merchant .of Honolulu. He spent money freely and was well liked by while and blacks In the quaint old town. As hi grew In wealth he made love to Concepolon. the daughter of a poor Portuguese Bailor, who had floated into Hawaii. She was what is known as a Kanaka, and there was a strain of English blood in hy. and after their marriage, in I860, it was this strain In her which produced the energy and executive ability by which ahe helped him to gain money. Ah Fong Invested in sugar tan planta tions, and In those times, when such prop erties yielded almost Incredibly large prof its, he became very wealthy. In ten years he was worth more than $300,000 and was adding $36,000 to thla annually. He was careful and prudent, while his business as sociates drowsed and took no heed for the morrow, and he was ceaselessly watching for chances to buy more plantations at cheap prices from the Improvident H wailana. Meanwhile the Ah Fong family circle widened. There were ail children In the home In 1870. a boy and Ave girls. Eight more girl were born there during the next fifteen years. Wing Ah Fong was an Ideal father. He was delighted to see how each child resembled the mother in fscial ex pression, Hs hired servants galore, en larged hi house every few years and thought nothing too good for til bable. He used to find no greater Joy than to get his wife and all his numerous girls Into a great lumbering open carriage' like a Concord coach that he had had built ac cording to hi own Ideas, and, with him self as driver on the front seat, go rolling slowly over the. rnfcd 'about. Honolulu for hbur at a time.- It used to be a mem orable sight to see fowling along any of the Isva made roads In Honolulu Papa Ah Fong. with hia long queue dangling down his bsek, driving in a vehicle containing his entire family circle, all singing, laugh ing and having a good time by themalve.
