Vuc. In provisions the outcome was
unchanged to llVfco higher.
Kxcept In the last fifteen minutes of
the session, when peace reports gave the
market a Jolt, wheat waa decidedly on
the advance the greater part of the time.
The chief bullish Influence at tha outset
came from the Illinois official crop report,-,
which gave tha percentage condi
tion for tha state aa only 06, aa against
74 on Msrch 1. and whloh said 31 per
cent of the planted acreage had been
winter-killed. Damage - advlcea from
Ohio, Indiana and Missouri tended sub
sequently to Increase bullish sentiment
and so, too, did drouth complaints from
Texaa. Oklahoma and western Kanaas,
Hlgheat prices of the day were reached
after the United Btatea vlalhte supply
total was announced as exhibiting an
unexpected falling off of 1731.000 bushels.
Itasplte the fact that peace reports,
which became current lata In the session,
were unconfirmed, the effect was to dis
count at once statements thst foreigners
hsd been buying mtures here and that
the reported aelaures of German vessels
In Brasll were untrue. It waa estimated
that 1.6O0.000 bushels of wheat had been
purchased today and Baturday for export
to P.urope, mainly, though, Manitoba
Wheat and May-June shipment.
Corn awsyed with wheat. Blowness of
eastern shipping acted to some extent as
a check on the bulla Oats derived aome
of their strength from tha dry weather
news sent by ths southwest. It was said,
also, that Baltimore waa actively In tha
market for caah oata.
Continued demand for lard tended to
lift the prevlaion Hat aa a whole. ICxport
shipments of lard for the week were
3.0U),vu pounds more than for the corre

All archaeologists concede the fact, he
declared, that If the Teutonic countries

"What Happened to Mary"
Copyright, 1915, bv McClnre Publications. I
Mary Page, actress, Is sccttsed of the
murder of David Pollock and Is defended
by her lover, l'hlllp 1-angdon. Pollock
was Intoxicated. At Mary's trial she ad
mits she hsd the revolver. Her. maid
testifies thst Mary threatened Pollock
with it previously, and Mary's leading
man Implicates Langdnn. How Mary dis
appeared from the s-en of the crime Is ft
mystery. Rrsndon tells of a strange hand
print he) aaw on Mary's shoulder. Further
evidence sltows that horror of drink pro
durea temporary Insanity In Mary. The
defense la "repressed psvchosls." Wit
nesses described Mary's flight from her
Intoxicated father and her father's; sui
cide. Nurse Walton describes the kidnap
ing of Mary bv Pollock, and Amy Barton
tells of Mary's struggles to become an
sctress. of Pollock s pursuit of her and
of snother orcssion when the smell of
liquor drove Mary lnsine. There Is evi
dence that Daniels. Marv's manager,
threatened Pollock. Mary faints on the
stand and again goes Insane when a
policeman offers her whisky.
(Continued from Saturday.)
The green shaded lamp flung a wide
pool of mellow light over the scattered
papers on the table and brought out boy
ish gljnts In Langdon's dark head aa it
lay on his folded arms, sunk in Ineffable
All through the long hours of the night
he had kept his lonely vlglK now poring
over the legal documents on the table,
now pacing the floor in a frensy of
anxiety, or making his way down the
echoing corridors to look In with mute
suffering at the room where Dr. Foster
and Nurse Walton watched so silently be
side a moaning, twitching figure on a
narrow prinon bed. But when the scanty
furniture of the office was gradually
emerging from the enveloping cloak of
night Into visible ugliness he had at last
sunk Into a doze of complete exhaustion.
Miss Walton, coming to the door, an
eager message on her Hps, turned silently
and pityingly away. Some betraying
sound reached him, however, and he
lirted his head with a start, blinking to
find the lamplight paling before the gray
Tawning, he got to his feet and crossed
to the window. He flung It wide and
drew In great breaths of the chill air.
A heavy fog was wrapping the city in
dense gray waves, and from the river
came the minor monotony of warning
whistles. Dreary as it was, his heart
lightened; for after all, It was morning,
and he was still young enough to feel
that nothing can be quite so bad In the
day as It Is in tha shadows of the night.
For the, first time since Mary's attack
of madness in the court room he realized
fully how tremendous an asset the
tragedy was to the defense, and In spite
of his grief, as a lover, over her suffering,
the lawyer in him exulted in tha episode
which cemented Into place the corner
stone of his- case.
The thought of thla lent a hint of
buoyancy to his tired body as ho made
another trip to 7 the cell where, at Dr.
Foster's orders, they had carried Mary,
still screaming with frensy. But it was
the lover rather than the lawyer Who
had surged uppermost by tho time he
reached the door, and all thoughts ef
the trial were submerged In an overween
ing anxiety and pity for the slender girl
who was paying so heavy a price for her
father's sin of drunkenness.
Mary herself was sleeping soundly when
ha glanced into tha cell, and Dr. Poster
was on his feet, frankly stretching, while
RUSSIANS START j
Germans Count Over Nine Thousand
Dead Before lines After
it is Over.
AIRMEN ARB VERY BUSY
With the slackening of the fight
ins; around Verdun, the Russians
have started a big offensive move
ment against the Germans on the
eastern front. A raid by Oerman
aeaplanea on the east coast of Eng
land and by French airmen on Mets
and other German towns, the sink
ing of a French torpedo destroyer
by a submarine In the Adriatic, and
the reported torpedoing of an Aus
trian hospital ship by an - entente
underwater boat are recorded in of
ficial and unofficial communications.
Berlin chronicles an attack of
great violence by the Russians
around Driswlaty lake and Lake
Narocs, but says the Russlana were
repulsed with great, losses, 9,270
Russian dead having been counted in
the Lake Koroci region.
Attack Is RepaUed.
Saturday the Germans In the Vaux
Damloup sector, northeast of Verdun,
began another spirited attack aga'nat the
French, but were driven back. Tha at
tack was not pushed again during Sun
day, and only intermittent bombardments
took place. ,
. Berlin reports tha recapture of some :
ground from the British northeast of
Vermellcs, In the region of La Basse and
the driving of tha French from a position
northeast of Bsdonvllle in the Vosges.
London admits tha capture by the Ger
mans of three mine craters at the Hohen
Preset Uans Baay.
The French guns have been busy bom
barding German trenches In Champagn
and German depots northeast ot 8t
Mlhtel. Five French aeroplanes dropped
bombs on Mets, ammunition depots near
Chateau Saline and the aerodrome at
Dteuxe, while twenty-three other ma
chines attacked the aviation camp at
Habahetm aud the freight station at
Mulhajisen. In battles In the air which
followed, the Germans and the French
each lost three -or four machines. A Ger
man airship attacked the entente alliel
fleet south of Solonikt. but with waat
result Berlin does not say.
Three officers and forty-four men of
the crew of the French torpedo boat
destroyer Renaudtn were lost when a
Teutonic submarine sent the vessel to
the bottom in the Adriatic.
Air Raid's Toll.
Ia an air raid by four German sea
planes over Dover, Ramsgata and West
gate, at least nine persons were killed and
thirty-one Injured. One of the seaplanes
was brought down thirty miles at sea
by a pursuing British aviator. The Ger
man observer waa killed.
The German admiralty officially denies
that a German submarine waa responsible
Miss Walton was bathing her tired eyes
at the basin in the corner.
Both greeted him with a smile, and,
answering the question in his eyes rather
than the one he huskily whispered with
his Hps. Dr. Foster said:
"She will be all right now. She woke,
conscious, Just after your last vfslt and
Is now sleeping soundly. There's noth
ing to worry about at least, not Just at
"Thank God!" Langdon's voice broke
on the words, and Dr. Foster put out his
hand antf patted the shoulder of the
younger man reassuringly, saying:
"We all say that, hut you'd better go
get some rest now; you look done up."
"Oh. I'm right." said Langdon. "But,
doctor. Is she Is it going to be pnsslbls
to go on with this trial? Can Mary brat
"I think so." The answer came slowly.
"Of course yesterday's scene was bad,
very bad. But you must realise that the
attack, while It was plainly due to the
whiskey thrust upon her was only to
some extent brought about by the fact
that the liquor was handed her at a time
when she was hysterical and had been
re-ennoting ev ents- that kept her earlier
experiences constantly In her mind. Given
healthy surroundings and happiness. I
wouldn't worry about attacks In the fu
ture. But it's a fine reflection upon an
American city," ho continued harshly,
drawing Langdon out Into the hall so
as not to wake Mary. "A fine thing
when it impossible to keep one woman
from the sight of drunken men and the
smell of liquor."
Langdon nodded absently, for his heart
was echoing the earlier words of the great
alienist: "Giving healthy surroundings
and happiness I wouldn't worry about
attacks in the future," and he was vow
ing to himself that, cost what It might,
he would yet win freoc'om and happiness
He had not dared to hope that she
would be well enough for the trial to
continue for some days at least, but
when she woke a few hours later she
vowed she was perfectly able to go Into
court even then. And so. no more than
ftjs hour late, the proceedings were con
tinued. That hour had seemed a very short
time to Mary and to Langdon, but It
was a very long one to the excited spec
tators who crowded the rooms to the
doors, whispering excited remlnlscenscs
of the day before.
Whatever douhts had lingered In the
minds of the public as to the veracity
and the strength of the dd'ense built up
by Langdon had been shattered at one
blow. For Mary, as everyone said,
might Indeed have teen actress enough
to feign madness at the eight of tha
drunken policeman, but she could not
have feigned that great bruise on" her
shoulder. The shadow cf the gripping
hand with those HvLl scars beneath it
told mutely of how the cruel fingers
had torn Into the tender flesh. ,
The newspaper bearing Dr. Foster's ar
ticle on "Repressed Psychosis" which the
district attorney had so sarcastically In

to Furnish Army with

WASHINGTON. March 20. Villa
fleeing with his outlaw followers be
fore the advance of the American ex
peditionary forces in Mexico, has
reached Ms own country in the
Guerrero district, where high of
ficials of the army said tonight he
may almost indefinitely evade cap
ture. If the bandit chieftain makes a
stand, Washington is satisfied that
the campaign will quickly end, but
if he leaves his followers, he can,
military authorities agree, reach a
haven of safety in the nearby moun
tains In less than a day's riding.
In the Guerrero district , and In the
country adjacent to Bahrlcorc. Villa Is
at home. For years ht, operated there In
defiance of the law of Mexico and con-
stituted authorities. The rrcnitalns to the
west offer couituess hiding places and
routes of escape.
How Villa Mlaht Ksrape.
If hard pressed Villa might, officials
believe, abundon his men, don the garb
of a peon and flee so far into the south
that It would be exceedingly difficult if
not Impossible to apprehend him.
To meet this situation General Persh
ing, it was learned tonight, has author
ity to employ scouts who have lived
their lives in the mountainous district.
These men know these hiding places
and the rctreafs In which the bandits
are sure to take refuge if hard pressed.
Upon them as a final resort will fall the
task of trailing Villa to earth. Elahvrate
scouting plans are understood to have
been completed. -
To Avoid Towns.
The War department, it became known
tonight, has .it the request of the State
department, sent explicit Instructions to
the forces In Sfexffo not to occupy Mexi
can towns. Such occupation, it is said,
might have the result of stirring up re
sentment among the Mexicans. However.
General Pershing's ordesr will not prevent
him from searching a town should .he
have reason to believe that Villa or any
of his followers were secreted there.
Neither Is he prevented from passing
through towns In an emergency, although
officials feel sure that such action would
be taken only where it was necessary.
Upon no condition, though, will American
troops enter a town and set up headquar
