CHICAGO, May 19 (A. P.) De
cided upturns In wheat prices resulted
yesterday from unfavorable crop re
ports and from more active export de
mand. The market closed strong, 2
to 3 1-4 net higher, with May $1.48 'i
to 1.4S and July J1.184 to 11.184.
Corn gained 1-2 to 1, oats 1-2 to 3-4
and provisions two to 37.
It was only at the start that wheat
showed any tendency toward a se
back. Offerings, however, were quick
ly absorbed and the market then mov
ed upward fast. About one million
bushels of cash grain were said to
have been taken(for export, with some
foreign business In the new crop said
also to have been put through. Clos
ing quotations were at the topmost
level of the day.
Active shipping demand for corn
helped to lift the market for corn and
Previsions went higher In sympathy
with grain and hogs.

This Ilroad Iand of Ours
Tho United States Is u large dry
country bounded on the north by
Canadian Club Whiskey, on the south
by Mexican Pulque, und on the east
and west by talt water. The popula

souls, somo of whom are Americans,
At their bidding, thousands of acres
of deudly grape vines havo been des
troyed, and If theso great and good
men fulfil their promises, ere long the
nation will be saved from the ravages
of the vicious weed, tobacco.
The original inhabitants wore Red
Indians; these were supplanted by
Pale Pilgrims, who first settled tho
country and then settled tho Indians.
The Indian practice of painting and
wearing feathers shocked the Pilgrim
Fathers and Mothers, but the Pilgrim
Daughters made a note of these fash
ions for future use.
