Wheat wes firm, though the trada was

Port Arthur for all rail shipment caat and
ne of tha largest ot tha export houses
report nine cargoes loading this month at

Corn waa rather Inclined to eaalnese,

wheat and OHta. Cables came a "hade
lower. '1 ha woather la mild and damp
through tnc bell today, but a sharp drop
to sttiisoimhln temperatures la forecasted.
The cuxli market la about steady.
The nats pit waa really the center of
speculative activity. Fur Weeks every ad

than anticipated. Sample market was
Primary wheat receipts were 656.000 bush

receipts last year of 84.000 bushels and
shipments of 172.000 bushels. Corn reeclpls

Liverpool closed unchanged to Hd lower

Rroomhall estimates world'a wheat hlp

"Country offerings of corn have fallen off
considerably," aavs the Exchange Grain
company, "solely for the reason that ship

to enter Into contracts tha they may not
be able to fill on tlila account, yet the

26 per cent more than last year. They would

cars have been had.
"Advancing pric e In Minneapolis will not

CHrCAOO. ' Jan. 12.Heavy anow In
North Dakota and western Minnesota waa
the chief cauae of firmness today In the
local wheat market, the May option clos
ing at a net gain of Ho. Corn was a
shade lower. Oata were up H Pro
vision, wara 2Vc Jovter tu.ZVc higher., i
The wheat market was dominated al
moat entirely by the situation In. the
northwest. Report from St. Paul were
that railroad traffic In certain eertlons
I of Mlnneaota and North Dakota is almost
at a standstill because of aupw blockades
and the official forecast waa for additional
anow tonight, followed by much colder
weather. These conditions seem to favor
atlll smaller receipts of wheat at Minns
apolls and Duluth and caused a firmer
feeling on the local exchange. With
nod demand by commission bouse and
local bulls price steadily advanced, and
the closing quotation were at the high
est point of the day. A lively demand
for cu-eti wheat at outside markets also
strengthened prices. The market closed
firm. May opened unchanged to He
lower at 7'Aii 7tS4c and aold ud to 76"SiC
where It closed. Clearance of wheat and
flour were equal ts !). 000 hit. Primary
receipt were SKA, 000 bu., against 564,000
bu. for the corresponding day one year
ago. Minneapolis, Duluth and Chicago re
ported receipts of 124 car, against 437
car last week and 43t car a year ago.
Trading In the corn pit wa quiet and
prices were steady. A leading elevator
concern wa the principal buyer and pit
trader were the chief sellers. Weather
condition throughout the corn belt ex
erted a depressing effect during the last
half pf the aesalon. The close wa ateady.
May opened unchanged to He higher at
43HC43c to 4JT4C aold .oftSto 4JSo
and closed at 43 c. Local receipts were
2S -ears, with two of contract grade.
Oats were In good demand all day and
the market showed considerable strength.
Local bull and pit tradera were good
buyers, the chief cause of the demand
being light receipt and an Improved de
mand for cash oats. May opened a shad
lower at 3IOtHc advanced to StSc
and closed at iHj3Hc. Local receipt
were llu ear.
Provision were weak early In the day
on aelllng by local holders, who were dis
couraged by the liberal receipt of live
hogs. Later the market became steady
on fair buying by packer. At the close

The receipts this week have been very
liberal, showing large gains over last wteK
and over the corresponding week ot a year
ago a will be noted from the table of re-
ceipi at neaa 01 column. The quality
haa not averaged very high, the supply
consisting largely ot quite ordinary to lair
half fat or warmed up steer with quit a
sprinkling ot teeaer and a very liberal
showing of cow stuff. A feature of the re
celpta la the unusually large number, of
I range oatue for thw season of the year.
The market haa not shown very much

little stronger than one week ago
An Interesting feature of the cattle trade
haa been the very active demand for fleahy
feeder wetglng from 800 pounds upwarda.
The stockmen who have disposed of their
hort-fed cattle have, aa a rule, realised
good profits and seem inclined to fill up
their feed yard with a freen supply of
cattle for another short feed. Hence it is
that neshy feeder have been In the best
demand and have been strengthening up
until they are 15ir26o higher than they were
a week or ten day ago. A high a 84.80
wa paid for choice, well bred Idaho feed
er this week. The lighter stock cattle.
while not so mucn in demand, and while
1 not showing the advance have neverthe
less been fair sellers at fully steady prices.

PHEEP There were five fresh cat re
ported In this morning, all of them having
been sold before arrival, so that as a
matter of fact there wa nothing etually
on sale. For the week the receipts show
a decided gain over the previous week, but
a small decrease a compared with a year
ago. The fact I everybody combined this
wek to keep receipt down. The gTera.1
feeling wss that the market was not In
condition to stsnd large run. nd hence
all market reports sent out advised the
holding back of supplies. The result ha
been beneficial to the market.
During the first two days of the week
the tendency of prices was lower, but with
moderate receipts and a fair demand the
market took a turn for the better on
Wednesday and since that time ha had an
upward tendency. At the close of the week
prices an generally lffil5c higher than one
week ago, and in spots possibly nigner
than that. In other words, the market for
the week has been In very fair condition
and sellers without exception have been
well pleased with results.
The quality this week ha been very fair,
showing some Improvement over last week
that Is, there have been fewer short fed
and half fat sheep and lambs. Without
exception operators on the market are ex
pressing themselves as very confident a
to the future of the market. The only
thing to be dreaded Is excessive receipts,
which are always liable to occur when
prevailing prleea are so very attractive
and which are almost certain to be fol
lowed bv break In the market.

STRENGTH OF CONCRETE TRIED
Remarkable Leaning; nnd Restoration
of Fire-Story Building; In
Since the establishment of the French
protectorate over the Beylik of Tunis. Its
capital of the same name has never ceased
to grow In alxe, population and weu'th.
While the original Arab city occupied and
still occupies the higher and finer ground,
the new French extension spreads from
this In the direction of the Bahira, or Lake
of Tunis, to the modern port, which, by
mean of a canal constructed at a cost of
many million of francs, traverses the
shallow and silting lake and debouches In
the sea at Halg el Dued, La Goulette, the
former port. This flat stretch of land,
some miles broad, on which the French
town Is built. Is In the last degree marHhy
and - unstable, a terror to architects and
builders, and wonderful are the directions
from the perpendicular and' the horizontal
which many of the structures, for ttin
most part temporary, exhibit, collapsing
Into X-like or bulging Into O-llke forms.
A recent example, however, on this
marshy ground, far exceeding in Importance
any of the numerous and previous In
stances, and which offered for a few days
a modern analogue to the well known
leaning towers of Pisa or of Saragossa, de
serves record. The 8ocIete des Mlnorterles
Tunlslennes ha had In construction for
many months past three large buildings
for the storage of wheat and dour, which
Tunis now, as Carthage aforetime, ships
In abundance to Europe, a central and two
lateral block, the latter separated from
the central one by some little distance.
One of the latter waa observed to be grad
ually deviating from the perpendicular to
ward the central block, without, however,
losing It rigidity, and this movement con
tinued en masse for several hours, until
an angle of about twenty-five degrees waa
attained. The mass gradually displaced It
self a a whole, a monolith, a It were, but
the fall of the block wa pronounced on
all hand Imminent. The engineer and con
tractor, he eever, however, took heart of
grace, and, confident in the cohesion ot
the reinforced concrete, set about restoring

conclusion that no woman wa a Judge of
