CHICAGO GRAIN AND PROVISIONS.
Corn Offerings Light, Demand From
Short Lively and Price Advance.
Chicago, Oct. 16. Sharp new advance
In the corn market today resulted largely
from President Wilson's note to Germany.
Lateat quotations, although unsettled,
were 2c to 4c net higher, with No
vember. $1.24 to $1.24, and December
L$1.21 to $1.21. Oats gained c to c
ana provisions 10c tu i.
Corn traders appeared to be nearly un
animous In drafting bullish conclusions
as to the effect of the president's stand.
In addition, the deflnate understanding
that the federal government might quick
ly come Into the market as a liberal
buyer tended further to discourage specu
lative selling. Accordingly offerings were
light, and there was a lively demand
throughout the day from short and com
mission houses. Pit operations, however,
did not popsesl anything like the magni
tude that has been rule of late. Reactions
which took place from the top , levels
reached seemed to be due altogether to
collection of profits. At the highest point
of the session the November option show
ed an advance of nearly 16e a bushel
compared with the Inside figures of 24
Oats went upgrade with corn. Domes
tic shipping demand wa good.
Word of probable, big export require
ments gave decided strength to provisions
and so likewise did upturns In the value
of corn and hogs.

H'gh-Priced Specialties Under
Pressure; Changed Atti
tude of Traders Reflect
ed in War Shares.
New York. Oct. 15. Judging from the
uncertain and Irregular course of today'
stock market speculative Interests wsre
less Inclined to Jump at hasty conclusions
regarding the result of pending develop
ments In the war situation.
With the exceptions of Oils, In which
fluctuations were most bewildering, shares
favored In the preceding session, notably
rails, shippings, tobaccos and high priced
specialties were under constant pressure
United States Steel, which promised yes
terday to get Into Its stride on the up
swing, was among the erratic leaders, re
acting 2 points from Its best and clos
ing at a loss of l'i points
Marine preferred was under the Influ
ence of realizing sales, reacting 2 point
after an early show of activity and
strength, while standard rails, especially
Pacifies, forfeited 1 to 2 points
Coppers and leathers were consistently
firm to strong, the demand for melals
centering about American Smelting. Ana
conda and Utah. Hides and Leather pre
ferred made an additional gain of 3 points,
but fell away later.
War stocks reflected the changed atti
tude of traders, some of the more dis
tinctive Issues of that division rising 1 to
4 points, with Industrial Alcohol and the
Railroad and Industrial Issues were tha
strongest features of the broader bond
market, the' liberty group showing vari
able tendencies, while Internationals were
neglected. Total sales par value aggr
gated $9,350,000. Old United States bonds
were unchanged on call.

Ducks and Chickens
Reported Very Plentiful
Parties coming in from the north
western part of the state report that
the annual fall flight of ducks and
geese has started and that birds are
more numerous than in many years.
It is said that in Cherry county
many of the lakes are fairly alive
with ducks, while morning and
evenings there are large flocks of
geese feeding in the fields.
Reports indicate that while there
have been a goodly number of prai
rie chickens, they have not been so
numerous as during other years.

Local Grid Team Expects to

Easy Picking in This
Central High's gri dteam will
fight its first battle on hostile ter
ritory this Friday when it meeta
the Norfolk High team at Norfolk.
Since Norfolk is said to have a
rather weak team this year and wa9
badly defeated by Grand Island Sat
urday, the local team is expected
to emerge from the contest vic
torious. Coach Mulligan has been using
the same men in the practice lineup
during the last two weeks as he
used in the second half of the South
High game. Campbell is being re
tained at quarter and it is the cen
tral mentor's belief that the new
quarter will come across with the
goods for the rest of the season.
Turner and Feters are playing end
with Konecky as substitute.
Although the team did not " show
up so well in practice Monday be
cause of a three-day rest, it was
back in form yesterday. Coach Mul
ligan is striving to build up a team
equal to last year, but is hampered
by lack, of players who are good
passers. Harper appears the most
apt pupil in this department of the
It is unlikely that the Council
Bluffs game will be played. The boys
from across the river, jubilant at the
defeat inflicted on Central by South
High, planned to repeat the per
formance. Now that it will be im
possible to play the game until after
Thanksgiving the Iowa lads are not
so keen on meeting the Purple squad
when the setback encountered at the
beginning of the season has been
overcome. If, however, the Cen
tral team is repeatedly defeated and
Council Bluffs wins its 'game with
South High on Thanksgiving, they
will ask Omaha for a post-season
The Norfolk team has not been
affected by the Spanish influenza and
expects to play. North Des Moines
High will come here next week for
what is expected to be the best game
of the season. North Des Moines
has practically the same team this
year that caused such a sensation

We hope the Poland China breeders and
friends will assemble at the ringside of the
D. C. Lonergan sale and buy the entire offer
ing at let live prices, for there will be sold
in this sale the cream of the herd, which has
taken years to build up. Lonergan has
meant much to the promotion of better
Poland Chinas, and it is only because of the
two sons being in the draft that he is com
pelled to disperse his herd. In this sale of
fering will be ten choice tried sows, among
them being Big Bob's Queen by Big Bob and
out of Bob's Best by Long Wonder. We con
sider her to be one of the best things- sold
this season. Another attraction is a March
yearling, Jumbo Wonder Lady by Big
Wonder's Jumbo and out of a dam by Her
cules. Mr. Lonergan selected what he
thought the top of the Hancher sale last
season in Hancherdale 5th by Rancher's Big
Price and she will be sold as one of the
largest April yearlings to be sold anywhere.
Hancherdale 14th is another great yearling
and is a half sister to the noted Hancherdale
Orange. A pair of good yearlings by E. Big
Price, jr., are included. The fall sows are
big and good, sired chiefly by Big King Bob.
A chance for some good man wanting fall
sows for his bred sow sale. The spring boars
and gilts are the best he ever raised and arff
sired by such boars as King Omaha, Big
King Bob, Big Bone Bob, he by Caldwell's
oB B?, Hancherdale Orange, Handler's
Smooth Wonder, McCoy's Big Gerstdale by
the noted Gertsdale Jones, King Golden Gate
by Golden Gate King, and Mark's Big Timm
by the Big Timm. Is it any wonder we ask
you to attend this sale? Be sure to come, as
I think the offering is the best ever made
from the Lonergan herd, and that is saying
a good deal. RAY DAVIS,
