It seems that the only way to elimin

CIirrAOO. Ana-. 17 Stormy weather
and a d-cl(1ed faJilna- off In receipts here
caused a sudden advance today of piiics
for wheat. The market closed stronR.
ISc to 1S'11 net higher, with September
at II 6l and Lcember l.oC'4jl.o.
Other sains for the day were: Corn,
to ik"; oats, Ho to Vc, and provisions,
1(iiJMtO to 2T.c.
Seaboard minors of export sales as ere -
Kntlnir l.otioao bushels had much to do
with the strenirth of the wheat market
late in the day. The most that could be.
falHv well confirmed, though, was 4mO.(xJii
bushels. Ineludlnir Manltohss. Shlnplnir
sales In Chicago Included W.ftnl bushels for
export, notwithstanding a fresh low rec
ord for sterling exchange. On tne whole,
however, the best Information ontalnable
Indented that the. export demand today
was by no means very urgent.
Corn ranged a little hhor throughout
the day, ehiefly owin to the strength of
wheat. The oool temperatures, which
were unfavorable for the growing crop,
had a tendency to embolden buvers iim
what, and the close was steady, with
September at 74Sc and Iecemher at (U'
rm-c. in.ts nanteneu In rrice beeaus
of rains that hindered threshing and In
terfered with tho movement to primary
terminals. . Nevertheless, a leading au
thority expreNscd the opinion that a yield
of l.sAo.nmi.wO bushels for tho fnlted States
would not he surprising.
Heavy soiling ot rlhs weakened pro
vislons. The unloading was snid to be
mnlniv on the part of packers. During
a large part of the day not much atten
tion was given to pork or lard.

Fortunately t..ore was a very fair buy
ing demand for both killers and feeders,
so that the market opened in reasonably
fair season in the morning. TTlie trudo
waa not active partly because of the late
arrival of some trains and partly be
cause of the sorting and shaping up that

and desirable kinds of both beef and
feeders were disposed of in good season
at prlcea that were not materially differ

showed little change In either direction.

Trade opened out much the Mtme as It
did Monday. Under the Influence of a
little competition from packets, shippers
bought several loads of lights at about
steady prices, both shippers and packer
paying as high aa $7.30 for sovetal
hunches. After first rounds, however,
things eased off, and later sales of light
show fr'aiuo declines from enrly prues.
Packers received very U-ailnh orders
again today, and, aa was the case yester
day, they did not evidence much activity
during tils early rounds. When thev
finally started bidding the prices offered
looked a big dune, and In spots as much
as lo lower, and as sellers refused to
concede so large a break, nothing much I
was done until a late hour in the fore- I
When sellers finally decided to rut
loose prices had Improved a little, and
figures paid for the bulk of the hogs did
not look to be over Mi10c lower, (len- i

The border situation along the loner

some recognised aa animals stolen by
bandits In recent raids on the Texan
side, were delivered this week is
Matamoros, the Mexican town op

Delivery of these horses and the fact
that the Mexicans at rrogreso had been
