Peggy Talks to Balky Sam.
(Peggy, upon finding that soldiers aboit
to start for Franc ar due to be disap
pointed because an animal circus that was
to entertain them la caught In a wreck, gets
her Birds to volunteer to give a show at
BALKY SAM didn't cause another
bit of trouble until they pulled
up at the entrance of the camp. Then
as the sentries challenged he calmly
sat down in his traces and not an inch
would he budge. In vain did Bill call
"cantankerous cudgermudgeon" and
hurl at him every long word he could
think of. Balky Sam just sat and sat.
There was a steady stream of traffic,
trucks, passenger automobiles and
army wagons pouring from the city
to the camp. All this was tied up
when Balky Sam sat down. Peggy
looked around for a bunch of grass
with which to coax him into action.
There wasn't a blade of green stuff in
"Why don't you talk to him,
Princess Teggy?' suggested Judge
"Bill is doing that and he knows
more big words than I do," replied
Judge Owl aniwered solemnly:
You can scold at a mule
And can call him bad names,
You will find ss a rule
'Twill not alter his alms.
But lust give him a smile
And be Jolly and nice,
He'll forget all hla bile
And get up In a trice.
"That sounds good," answered
Peggy, a bit doubtfully. "Maybe if
I could talk mule talk it might do
"Nothing easier," replied Judge
Owl. "Put your ear down."
Peggy ddid so. With a queer hiss
ing sound Judge Owl blew sharply
into it. Peggy thought him very rude
and started to tell him as much. But
just then Balky Sam "hee-hawed"
loudly. Only, strange to say, it was
no longer a "hee-haw" to Peggy. It
was words. Balky Sam was singing a
queer song which ran:
These men are mad,
And I am glad,
'Cause I know how to roll 'em.
If I were good,
I'm sure It would
Be Just the thing to spoil 'era.
"That's not a bit nice," cried Peggy
indignantly. "You are a very bad
Balky Sam looked around a bit sur
prised, for he, could not understand
Peggy as well as she could understand
him. Then his lips rolled up in a
funny laugh and he winked at her.
"I know it isn't nice, but it's lots of
fun,' was his answer.
Peggy climbed down from the
wagon to argue the matter with him.
"Don't you see what a lot of

CHICAGO 4 BAIN AND PROVISIONS.
Corn Price Advance Hharpty, Aided by Talk
of xport Demand,
Chicago, July 13. Corn advanced sharp
ly In valu today, aided by talk of export
demand. Prices closed strong, I to 4e
net higher, with August 11.63 to $1.13
and September $1.63 to $1.63. Oat
gained to 10 and provision 15
to 87 oent.
Corn traders showed uncertainty th first
hour, but after that th bulls had every
thing their own war. Continued liberal
receipts and auspicious weather bad given
an added advantage temporarily to th
bears until gossip became current of the
removal of hedge against sales to ths
east. Other . signs of Improved (hipping
demand were noticeable, and word wa
circulated that exporter had Instructions
to buy. Besides, an Impression seemed to
be spreading that th crop movement wa
to drop off shortly. Under such circum
stances, th brisk upward awing of price
received no Important check, and th
Slnish wa at th topmost point of th
Oat sympathised with corn. Hedging
sales were In evldenoe, but wer largely
offset by pessimistic advice from Canada,
where, despite som rains, th lack of
adequate moisture appeared to b causing
serious apprehension, and. It was suggested,
may have done lrreparabl damage.
Strength of hog prtoc lifted provision.
