The most encouraging developments
of the week are the widening demand
for ull forma of iron and steel at Pitts
burg and Chicago, with Increased con
fidence that bottom price, have been
reached. , '. , ;;. . .. . . ,
Other features are the fading of war
prospects, a real plethora, of money at
New York and at western centers and
the highest prices for wheat since 1898,
due to Increased milling demand for
home and foreign requirements and a
greatly oversold Map option' at ' Chi
cago. .Other advances In price, were
for corn, oats, cotton, coffee, leather,
hides, tin. and copper "with partial re
actions in the last two. Silk goods
are In better demand, prints are hard

teedom. Boston's wool shipments ex
ceed those of a year ago. ' Shoes and

Dear Sirs For ten year. I had been almost a, cripple from rheumatism, and frequently waa in such a con
dition that I could hardly get around. On June 9 I came to Medical Lake to try the hot baths. Was al
most helpless at that time. On account of cold, bad weather during June, took only a few Medical Lake
baths. Later, the weather warming up, t begun the treatment in earnest, and. at this writing,, August 8,
consider myself entirely well. The hot water baths in Medical Lake water have done business for me.
Before coming to this place I spent several hundred dollars with physicians and for various remedies but
received no benefit until I tried Madical Lake water. , THOS. BELL, Spangle, Wash.
