reports in the financial districts, the

Liquidation Stops and

CHICAGO, Nov. 24. For the first
time in more than a week, the wheat
market closed at an advance. Brink
export demand, together with asser
tions that liquidation was at an end
had much to do with the strength
shown. The finish was nervous, 7 1-2

$1.64. Corn opened 2 1-8 to t 1-8,

Buying of wheat at the end was
greatly accelerated by a report that
Julius Barnes, former national wheat
didector, had. expressed an opinion
that prices were at the bottom. This
report was a distortion of remarks by
Mr. Barnes which were along optimis
tic lines but In which' he said explicit
ly that he was not a bull. Entirely
aside from the Barnes Incident, how
ever, a considerable change in senti
ment among traders was evident from
the outset. It was known that export
demand was brisk and that millers
were rapidly placing orders for flour.
Besides, financial conditions were eas-
l-r, and sterling exchange rising
and set backs in' pricei, although
sharp at times, were brief and after
the close it was estimated that sales
to Europe totaled 1,600,000, about
half that amount domestic grown.
Corn and oats were hoisted by the
strength of wheat.

ions market upward notwithstanding

Pure, Rich Blood Will Keep
Your Body Vigorous and Healthyl
When impurities creep into your
blood the first symptoms are usu
ally a loss of appetite, followed by
a gradual lessening- of energy, the
system becomes weaker day by
day, until you feel yourself on the
verge of a breakdown.
Nearly everybody needs a - few
bottles of S. 8. 8., the great vege
table blood remedy, to cleanse out
all impurities about twice a year.
It is an excellent idea to take this
precaution to keep the system in a j
vigorous condition so as to mors ,
easily resist disease to which every
one is subject. S. S. S. is without
an equal as a general tonic and ays .
tem builder. It improves the sppe-
tite and gives new strength and vi
tality to both old and young-. -Full
