Beck of a simpleton he onco Knew
whose first name was John, one aay
John was with some girls who wer
having fun putting hens' eggs in tneir
mouths, and John declared that ho
eould nut a cooso egg in hl3 mouth,
nd the girls dared him to do it.
John wns brave and wouian t lose a
Aire, nnd br dint of perseverance be
got tho goose egg in, but when h
fried to take it out it wouldn't come,
nd when he was threatened with
teeklaw the cirls got scared and hustled
John off to a doctor. The doctor, after
diagnosing the case, aouuiea up ms

one on the chin. John was relieved,

to a close, ana ine export u.uiu
abroad, as previously mentioned,
lias been concluded for the sea
son, and tne ony uusinesa now
being done is cleaning up old
orders for California account.
Millers and dealers there are
virtually out of the market, and
it seems as if the reports sent
rom that state up North are be
ing verified. The lack of buying
power may arise from a number
of causes, one especially that
;he prevailing high prices do not
iustify any one to purchase any
of the wheat held up North here
New crop values will shortly be
made, and the difference of
opinion with the trade is that it
will be fully from 10 to 15 cents
bushel less than now prevail-
incr. A large crop in signt win
have a great deal to do with the
regulation of price. The crop
outlook of the Pacific Northwest
is very good, far better than it
has been for many years at this
time of the year. We are thank-
?ul that cron scares such as we
hear of east of the Rocky Moun
;ains do not trouble us out here
Although crop scares must be
accounted ihe most speculative
force of the Eastern market, the
nrese'nt drought news from
the Southwest is being received
with more than usual conserva
ism. At the same time it is not
well to ignore the news, since
it is almost certain that with
any prolongation of dry weather
:here would be further losses
in the winter wheat production.
The lack of interest in wheat in
Eastern markets was very evi
dent during the week, as there
was plenty of bullish news.
The short interest trade had to
all appearances covered in the
sharp rise from the extreme
break and left the market abso
lutely bare of any lifting power
save buying for the rise, and
this was not induced to come
into the pit, notwithstanding the
drought reports. Crop condi
tions in the eastern part of the
Northwest continue to maintain
the good standing of the previ
ous week, and it is generally
making seasonable growth.
Wheat acreage is calculated
short of that put in last year.
Corn is only in part planted and
but little is yet known of the
progress of that. Much atten
tion has been given to the pro
curing of seed that is expected
to grow. Excepting weather
too cool, the prospects are yet
satisfactory. Oats crops are
mostly doing well where they
have had time to show above
ground, with a good average
moisture to sustain them. Al
together the situation is favor
able. There is some talk of places
too wet in the valleys, and the
talk is well based or the land
would be in need of more mois
ture on the uplands. Except
mg the great need of rains in
parts of the Central West the
standard crops are well spoken
