FIKEBOAT I RECENTLY.
CHICAGO. May 11. Tifhtenlng up of
European markets led to a considerable
change of sentiment here today regarding
wheat. Many traders Jumped from the
short to the long alda and there was a
steady advance In prices. Dry. hot weather
in Huasla and Roumania was largely re
sponsible. Tba minds of wheat speculators
turned again and again to the large de
crease last month In the world's available
unolv. a falling off of 8.1.000.000. compared
with 24.000.000 bushels for the corresponding
time a year ago. The total Is thus
brought down to within .OoO.OOO bushels of
the amount 13 months ago. altnnugn sun
about 67.000.OO0 bushels larger than two
years ago. Dispatches from Australia re
ported an Improved call there from Europe.

Campbell Tells Committee Subal
terns Acted Wisely in Not Turn
ing Big IIoe on Molorcrnft.
Fire Chief Campbell Justifies action of
the department la not sending the fire-
boat to the fire In the motor-boats near
the Inman-Poulsen Lumber Company's
plant recently. He declared to the mem'
be re of the fire committee yesterday aft'
ernoon that the boat could not have
been used to advantage there; that, had
Its streams been turned on. some one
might have been killed, owing to the
heavy pressure and that the tire would
not have been handled any better.
Experience has proved that fires In
boats like those can be handled to better
advantage with a small hose than with
larger hose, said Chief Campbell. "It
requires too much exertion to drag heavy
hose around and It is impracticable.
f'-attallon Chief Stevens, who has charge
of the district where the Ore occurred,
did not order the flreboat out until some
one cut a boat adrift. He then called
the boat to protect the waterfront not
to fisht the fire In those small boats.
Members of the Motor-Boat Club had
filed a remonstrance against the fire de
partment's action in not sending the flre
boat when the night operator was tel
phoned to. Chief Campbell said the oper
ators have orders not to send the flre
boat on telephone calls, but to dispatch
he nearest engine company, which was
done In this case. He said the fire s
handled In the best way. The committee
will get an official report from him and
will consider the case then.

a F. Robb, of Poplar Bluff, Mo.,
writes: "I am a farmer of the Iron
Mountains. I have had rheumatism for
the last ten months. I purchased a
pair of electropodes and have had great
results from them. .1 have worked but
three weeks In the last ten months and
now I am working; on my farm every
day and think I am getting- well."
John McArthur, of Bowlus. Minn.,
writes: "Enclosed please find $3 for
which please send me three pairs of
Electropodes. I have used two pair of
your Electropodes now. When I began
their use I was not able to make a step
without the aid of crutches, now I am
able to get around nicely with a cane
and believe another pair will com
pletely cure me."
Rheumatism, nervousness, neuralgia,
backache, liver and kidney complaints
are caused by excess , uric acid. Medi
cine can only temporarily counteract
the effect, while electropodes remove
the excess uric acid, and all other poi
sons and impurities, from the system.
