Rears Take Advantage
Of Italy's Caurellauon.
CHICAGO. Jan. 19. Bears In the
wheat market today took advantage of
statements that Italy had cancelled
some of her contracts for wheat bought
In the U. S. Prices rallied later but
failed to hold. The finish was unsettl
ed with March 1.744 to 1.75 and May
l.tt to 1.67. Corn lost 6-891 .7-8;
oats S-8H and provisions 15 to 45c.

Ihra Uw tnouth of Poor TUehards said:
- "He tliat loses 5 Shillings worth of time, loses 5
- ftlatUlngsi, and might as prduently throw S Shillings
Into tlw river." '
The wasting and squandering of time is as bad or
worse than the squandering of money for It leads to
, laziness, and the latter fs the worst curse which can
befall a human.. The well known proverb: "Early
to bed, and early to rise, makes a man healthy, weal-
thy and wise," not only allades to the benefit of hav
ing a good night's rest but also to the fitness of doing
a day's work well.
"Strongest Lank in Gastern Oregon'
of wheat bought for Italy had been
cancelled, but word that 4 SO, 000 bush
els had been taken for export by way
of tha Gulf of Mexico led afterward
to a sharp upturn in prices. Gossip,
however, that Greece purchased a huge
total ot Canadian wheat failed to be
confirmed and the temporary strength
n the market disappeared under heavy
Corn and oats lacked support, except
during the transient bulge In wheat
Oats touched the lowest price this sea
In the provisions market packers

ing that hogs were on the high grade.

Apply Zemo, Clean, Penetrat-
ing, Antiseptic Liquid
It is unnecessary for you to suffer
with eczema, blotches, ringworm, rashes
and similar skin troubles. Zemo,
obtained at any drug store for 35c, or
$1.00 for extra large bottle, and prompt
ly applied will usually give instant relief
from itching torture. It cleanses and
soothes the skin and heals quickly and
effectively most skin diseases.
Zemo is a wonderful, penetrating,
disappearing liquid and is soothing to
the most delicate skin. It is not greasy,
is easily applied and costs little. Ot
it today and save all further distress.
