of to le, compared with yesterday's
close. Corn closed steady, but oats and
provisions were weak.

ment was one of weakness. July moved

for the caah grain by shippers. The sell
ing at the start was due to weather con
dltions. The market closed steady, .svlth
prices He lower to He higher, comp.i-eS
with the previous close.
Heavy realising sales, prompted by Im
pending arrivals of new oats here next
week, cauaed a break of nearlv 2c In July

largely of native snd fed cattle there has.

HOGS Hogs were 5!EN0c lower this morn
ing, and. although the trade generally .p-
pearea as rather slow, still there was suffi
cient life to effect an early clearance.
everything being cleared up by 10 o'clock
m the morning. The hogs sold pretty
largely at $7.70jT7.75, and on up as high as
s.iio for the be.
The market this week has been In very
satisfactory condition, as Slewed from a
seller's standpoint Although the opening
was a little easier than the close of the
previous week still prlceb tended upward
reaching on Friday the highest point
touched since 1902, when hogs sold In
practically the same notch. With that ex
ception, the market was the highest of any
year since 1893. Today's decline wipes out
a part of the advance, but still at the close
of the week prices are 6TJ'7,4c higher than
they were one week ago.

high-grade character and low price have
made it tha favorite with that element
which forma the largest percentage of
our population. As over 60,000,000 live

The Ourrler Publishing Company,
which own the Woman's World and 11
splendid printing plant and has within
a few years brought It by its great
earnings to its piiunonienal success, re
cently offered the public Its per cent
preferred stook with wlilcli there goes a
bonna of common atock and the invita
tion at once met wtui a most generous
response from hundreds of inventors.
Within a few weeks over $260,000 of
tne 9 per cent preferred stock has been
sold. This means thut over $260,000
new capital has gone into the business
for only treasury shares are aolii. It
means that those who buy now secura

This 9 per cent preferred stock is sold
to provide for Improvements and exten

shows that enormous profits there are

$100. Yet, Munsey's has less than one

well-known magazines have made and
are making fortunes. Th lat Mr. P.

estate of over $0,000,000. Why shouldn't
the Woman's World, with additional fa

$20,000 more came too late for Insertion.
In addition we are turning down about
$20,000 undesirable advertising a month.

has grown so fast that within the past

For the first three months of 1909,

ferred stock was yet sold, our profits
were $69,000 while but $46,000 is neces
sary to meet the 9 per cent yearly div
idend on our preferred Bharea.
On this baslB the annual profit would
be $236,000 more than sufficient to pay

Kplendid crops will soon be nine billion
dollars to the nation's wealth. We are
toncenlrstlng our greatest efforts to so
cure about a million dollars advertising
In the next twelve months, which would
mean dividends of at least 25 per cent.
These facts ehould appeal to thought
ful and conservative investors. Tlie

Buy Before the Advance.
Today you can buy our 9 per cent
fully paid and non-asbassable preferred
shares at $65 and secure the bonus of
one-half common sharci with each pre
ferred share. After August 16, 1909, th
preferred shares will be 980, to be soon
followed by withdrawal of th common
stock bonus. You can buy these shares
for cash or on small monthly Inutall
ment. Personally, I own only oommon stock.
Dividends must be paid on your pre
ferred shares before 1 can get a divi

stock dividends will start before th
year expires. The next preferred divi
