It is difficult, among: the multiplicity of
utensils of the 20th century, to realize
the importance of the vase to olden
dmes. Indispensable tu tne Greek in bis'
overy-day Mre, the vase and Its kin
dred, known as amphorae, were used for
holding wine, water, oil and (food, for
adornment of the home and for burial
in the tomb. These- vases, distinguished
by their exquisite grace of shape and vari
colored raised s!Ups or gflaze of black,
cream or red, upon which were incised
black silhouettes or paintings of mytho
logical subjects show seven distinct
stages of historical progression, ranging
tfrom the 10th eentjury B- C. to about 200
B. d. Probably the, besa-smbwn type is
the- black-figured amphora, or the more
graceful dancing figures adorning the am
phora & century later. Many examples of
tibia ware, modified later by Roman Influ
ence, have -been found in England on the
site of Roman stations. This red-gaazed
pottery, known as Socman: "ware, and dis
tinguished for its enrichment by scroK
and festoon, was jiot only dmported Into
England by tine Romans, but. Judging
from the molds and kilns occasionally
found, was doubtless made there by Ro
man potters, following Caesar's invasion:
The Arabs also manufactured a most ar
tistic pottery, known as lustered ware or
golden pottery, which they Introduced in
to Spain fifcout tine 12th century. Its bril
liant iridescence and great variety of or
namentation caused it to "be greatly
prizedF by popes, cardinals and princes of
this world, who were astonished'that such
noble works could be made of clay."
The Arabian and Persian potters' also
manufactured upon the island of Majorca
an earthenware coated with a stannifer
exur or tin glaze termed "enamel"; after
the conquest of the ieJand by the Pisans
this -ware was Introduced into Jtafly under
the name of majolica. This Mezza ma
jolica was superseded In the early 16th
century by the true majolica, famous for
Its remarkable Iridescent brilliance of or-
Dancingr FigmreB, from an Amphora,
&nge, yellows, blues and greens; for this
ware Raphael and his pupils made many
4esigns. It is interesting to note in this
connection that modern Florentine work
shops have revived recently the old Ur
blnese majolica and are successfully re
producing its exceptional artistic excel-'

ews and grand-nephews he produced
many exquisite terra cotta reliefs, -which
coated with white tin enamel' and en
riched with vari-colored glazes, form a
unique monument to the genius of this
rarely gifted family. Glrolamo della Rob

famous stanniferous enamel, introduced
It lnrto Ftetoace (1516), where, at Nevers,
was made ware similar td that of Urbi

brated Bernard Pallssy also discovered
a tin enamel which made all he elabor
ate pieces coming from his pottery famous
for their brilliancy and purity.
Earthenware seems to have been made
in England as far back as the reign of
Edward I, in t!he 13th century. "While
many early examples of Staffordshire
slip, such, as posset pots, plggins and
plates manufactured as early as 1650, are
still found in England, the method of
pressing different colored slips into molds
was not perfected until a century later,
when "Whleldon and "Wedgwood produced
the famous queen's ware and Jasper ware.
Meanwhile Dutch and Portuguese
traders hod brought home that translu
cent porcelain called from the country in
which it was discovered, China. Its im
itation at Delft, with its soft, cobalt, un
derglaze blue, is too well-known to need
much comment. It was speedily exported
in vast'quantltiep to all parts of Europe
and introduced into England in 1676. That
English importations of china were rare,

shown by the mention m the inventory

COMMERCIAL AND FINANCIAL
A holiday In th middle of the week rcn
erally dlBorranges trad matters, and the
celebration of the glorious Fourth yterdar
waa no- exception to the rule, although the
booming' business which, preceded the cele
bration compensated In a large measure for
the loss of oao day from the business calen
dar. Perhaps the most unpleasant feature
of the frade situation this week has been a
rapid decline In the wheat market. Not all
of the gain of the previous week has been
Jost, but there has been a shrinkage of sev
eral cents per bushel in prices The flour
market has receded ia sympathy with wheat,
and prices are 15 cents lower than last week.
Wool does not improve, and thera is & very
light eelling movement, growers declining to
accept prices which dealers feel warranted In
paying with the foreign and Eastern "markets
in their present shape. In grocery markets
the principal feature of interest Is the end
of tha war between the coffee and sugar kings,
followed, naturally enough, by a substantial
advance In both of these grewC staples.
Oregon fruit U becoming quite plentiful,
especially early peaches, which bare arrived
almost too rapidly for the health of the mar
ket, and sales havo been made at very low
figures, ia order to make a cleaa,-up. Cali
fornia new potatoes have about abandoned
the field to the native product, good Oregon
stock, which is xfow fairly well matured.
selling as low as 65 cents per sack. There Is
still a limited demand for old potatoes, both
here and In Son Francisco, but it is so small
that quotations are to a large extent nominal.
Despite the presence of so much fruit in the
market, the demand for pork, veaT, eggs, etc..
Btlll holds up, with prices well maintained.
"WHEAT The 1800-1000 cereal year closed
last Saturday, leaving & carry-over stock in
the Northwest about the same aire as that
of Its predecessor, and with over 1,230.000
bushels on spot at this port, and more than
half as much at Tacoma and Seattle. This
condition of affairs is not conducive to an
active wheat market, even with strength ap
parent elsewhere, and as that strength has
been missing from the foreign markets for
several days, local exporters are holding oS
awaiting further developments. There Is
enough wheat on spot or in transit for this
port to load all of the tonnage due in the
next 00 4ays, and by that time there will un
doubtedly be considerable new wheat moving.
Freights remain firm, sod aid In blocking
business to this port, as exporters win not
nay the high rates demanded by shipowners
until they are forced to do so.
On euch a market It is difficult to make ac
curate quotations, but prices are nominal at
55 and 08 cents for "Walla "Walla, and about
tho same for Valley. A cent more than these
figures was paid early In the week, and if it
were necessary to move much of the cereal
It would probably have to be paldj again.
Blnestem. nominal, at 58 and CD cents. The
crop outlook continues decidedly favorable,
except In the Valley, wljc;e considerable dam
age has been wrought, which cannot all be
repaired. East of the mountains the pros?
pect was never better. In the East, the
bullishness caused, by the first, reports -from.
tho stricken districts In Ohio, ZUnnesota, the
Dakotas and Indiana has been offset In a
measure by a calmer review of the situation,
and In a review of the probable supply of
wheat during the coming season, the Clncln-
natl Price Current has the following:
The official estimate of farmers shocks of
wheat In the United States on July 1. 1809,
was 64,000,000 bushels. The crop was esti
mated at 547,000,000. This mado a total of
011,000,000. "Warehouse stocks at the same
date were estimated by ,lho Chicago Trade
Bulletin at 57,000,000. Adding this, the ag
gregate of wheat supplies is made to appear
as 008.000000 bushels. The situation on March
1 Jmplled consumption for eight months, and
Aulumn seeding amounting to approximately
270,000,000 bushels, exports 125,000.000, of
ficial estimate of farmers' stocks 109,000,000,
commercial estimate of warehouse stocks, 07,
000,000 making an aggregate of 051,000,000.
This fails short 17,000,000 bushels of account
lag for the Indicated supplies, and. may bs
attributed to understatement of farmers'
stocks, or possibly to millers' supplies, not
recognized in warehouse estimates. No serious
Inconsistency is implied in these comparisons.
But Jt ia interesting to seo what follows, so
far as can be Judged by incomplete data with
reference to th situation on July Tu The In
dicated supply for March 1, as stated, was
250,000,000 bushels. The domestic consumption
to July 1 and Spring seeding represent, ap
proximately, 140,000,000 bushels, exports about
00,000,000, warehouse stocks 05,000,000 or more
these Qualities making a total of 265,000.000
bushels, exclusive of farmers' stocks, and ex
ceed the indicated supplies on March 1 to tbo
extent of 9,000,000 bushels, whllo farmers
stocks will not likely be shown to be under
50,000,000 bushels for July 1. If hese figures
mean anything; they mean that the 1899 wheat
crop was fully 600,000,000 bushels. Instead of
547,000,000, and that the crop furnished a
quantity equal to the year's distribution. Im
plying that the year ends with as large re
serves of wheat as It began with. In North
Dakota the continuance of drought, with high
-temperature, have made nearly a clean sweep
of the wheat crop, and seriously Impaired the
situation of other crops. In South Dakota tha
conditions have not been be intensely .unfa
vorable, and comparatively fair results are yet
possible. In a portion of Minnesota, conditions
are seriously unfavorable, but the larger part
of the state appears to admit of halt to three
fourths crop results on the present basis.
The harvesting of Winter wheat Is now at
Its height In the principal wheat states, and
threshing has commenced In mora Southern
sections. Late correspondence does not reflect
any material change In the prospects of this
portion of the crop from the preceding week.
Indication! pointing to & yield of "Winter wheat
of about 850,000,000 bushels. In the South
western States of Missouri, Kansas, Okla
homa, etc, harvest has been carried on under
very favorable weather conditions'; the quality
of the grain is reported very good, and yield
up to previous expectations. In the southern
parts of Illinois and Indiana harvesting has
been interfered with by excessive rains, and
some further lowering of the outlook is re
ported from a few localities.
Deer boh m. under date of June 15, states that
complaints are made of the effect of the recent
tropical heat in France during the blooming
period, but according to the later advices the
weather was fresher and more favorable for
the crop. In Belgium and Holland and parts
of Germany beneficial rains have fallen, but In
the east of Germany the absence of rain Is
still very serious, and "crop prospects on the
whole are by no means favorable.
Paine. TVebber ft: Co. say: As to European
deficiencies, the News estimates as follows:
France, 60,000,000; Germany and jthe United
Kingdom, lC.O00.O0a to 24,000.000 between
them. The Russian official returns next Au
tumn will almost certainly fall short of last
season's extraordinary large . estimate by at
least 40,000,000 bushels, which will largely
offset the promised Increases In the Balkan
States and the hoped-for increase in India.
