CHICAGO, March 0.-Forg grain to
day sos red even above the record break
ing high prices made on pretious ocre
Hons this week. Hull leadera pressed the
buying and compelled the covering of
Important short lines. May corn reached
per bu. and vata 6k-. Tha close for

most level reached, a net advance of "!
to V for corn and Vc to Ho for oala
Hog products, too, ahowed a Mae of se

I'stommon arllvlly and nervous tension
fiaveloped in core and oata alike, rrrie-l-ect
of ooider unsettled weather uver
tkinday encouraged awarma of new buy
m to take hold and In Ilia end forced
1 it traders to capitulate. The bull view
.f the corn market was that tinsesson

l.et-eaaluied consumption at the winter
rate, a huge average of more than SM.

nulremeiit which the amount of corn In
ns country has seen strained Id supply
t.nd has put a gill-edge premium on the
I elatlvely meager hoard left.
At no time today did the price of corn
react 'below the quotation current laat
inght. Oa the other hand, the high point

J'giirse ever obtained a month later In
the yssr. He l ween the opening and the

and finished steady He up at 711c.
Vim on the bull stde of the oats crowd
appeared acarrely second 'to the enthusi

waa the chief liiihn...e. but considerable
attention waa also paid to- signs of aa
increased cash dsihand from the south.

rereal waa mostly depressing, but the ef
Ject wss largely offset y the- strength
.f other grslti. According to experts in

.are hsd rapidly diminished. Further
snore, much Canadian wheat la being con

any consequenee, and what la more, re
ports from the varloua railroad linea In
dicating waahouts and the loss of bridge
at many points haa led to the belief that
recelpta will continue light for some daya
to com. For the week recelpta hav
been vary liberal, footing up 33.400 head,
the largest for a number of weeka back,
and fully as large aa on the correspond
ing wek of last year. .
f'nder the Influence of very liberal re
ceipt peckers were able to bear down on
beef cattle, with the result-that at the
oloae of the wsek the general run of fat
leers can be quoted lotrlou lower than
last .week close.
Cows and hslfefs wet In very good de
mand all the week, that Is, the better
grade were, and they commanded steady
prices from dsy to day, and at the clues
of lb- wsek ar. If anything, atrong aa
compared with laat week'a. close. On
the other hand, canner and th common
to medium kind of cow had - a lower
tendency, owing to the fact that re
ceipts were large, and at the do of
the. week tby.. r Ksttlio lower.
Strictly- good feeders were In moderate
supply and wsre strong all the week. On
the other hand, .there waa a large supptr
ot common light feeders and atockers,
and a the country demand haa been very
moderate, price eased off, closing th

The mesMlnf of the Southwestern Iowa
Teachers' association cloeed yesterday
with the genera! conviction of all that H
was the most pleasant and valuable In
the history of the association. When the

of tha teachers from abroad left on the
afternoon trains, but nearly one-half of
them slipped away before noon
There was a snintea contest when it
came to choose officers for the year and
select thai place for holding the next
meeting. Red Oak'a representatives put
up a atrong fight for the honor of enter

Warrea aa Hygleae,
Th feature of the day'a program waa
th lecture and demonstrations of Dr.
Horace Warren of Missouri Valley, who
1 th att lecturer on oral hygiene.
He laid especial emphasis upon th neces
sity for th proper care of 'lie teeth and
gave a practical demonstration of Ills
conviction that tha tooth brush also
needed car when he took from his vest
pocket an hermetically sealed glsss tube
and ahook from It hi tooth brush. He
character! xed an unclean tooth brush aa
bout the most deadly unsanitary device
that carelessness and ignorance has been
abas to provide. He Indicated that he
regarded th glass used In connection
XYtth the -brush to be of equal danger of
tnnectlon when h took from his pocket
a sanitary collapsible paper cup. The
proper car of th teeth waa mad very
plain and Dr. Warren' talk was worth
whll a Instruction for teacher In re
lation to the cat of their own teeth ax
well a for Instructing their pupils. Dr.
Warren attributed half of th diseases
to th neglect of th teeth,
i .Another valuable lecture of scientific
Usd practical character was given by Dr.
C. P. Colgrov of Cedar Rapids. Ia., on
"Tha Educational Equation." He dealt
largely with th physiological and psych
ologies requirements of the good teacher
and cVsclared a unfounded th oft x
pressed belief that teaching waa an In
born quality. WHUngneaa to work and
thoroughly master all of th problems
lo b taught and an acquired ability to
discern quickly th quality of th pupil
was th foundation for aucces !n th
teaching profession. Mental discipline,
ha declared to u th prerequisite for
11 other dlsclpllns, and "sand, sympathy
nd venae, " he Bald, were th chief things
required outside of th education r.eces-
sary to teach.
. Awaiting Payment
Attorney J. J. Ilea, who haa had charge
of tha legal business connected with th
sal and transfer of th Atlantic North
ern and the Omaha ft Iowa Short Line
railroads, received a letter from Leslie
M. Shaw yesterday conveying the Infor
mation that a cablegram had come from
Kteman, the fiscal agent of the London I
bankers financing th deal. Klernan left
New Tork for London laat week for the
purpose of cubing th 4O,0O draft and
forwarding th money - to New Tork,
where It would be Immediately available
for distribution by Governor Shaw. The
letter of the former ' ecrelary of th
United State treasury did not Indicate
bit- of pessimism, nor does Mr. lies
Every legal quibble haa been satisfied.
nd sven th necessity for Mr. Klernan
going to London to cash th draft that
was to hav been paid In New York on
March If ha been explained. Local In
terest in th deal haa not abated, but
considerable anxiety will be relieved
when th more than 3310.000 tied op will
be released and returned to th possession
of the local men who advanced It.
