CHICAGO. July 28. (A. T.) Indi
cations that the harvest movement
from the soft wheat states was about
over had a bullish effect on the wheat
market. Prices closed nervous, 2 to

Corn gained 4 iff lc and oats finished

outcome was unchanged to lSfJl'c
Evidence that country selling of
wheat was abruptly falling off caused
the opinion to gain ground that the
maximum of receipts had been passed
so far bb the winter crop was concern
ed, and that a majority ot farmers
were binding the rest of their winter
wheat to hold for higher prices. Be
lief that current export business was
much In excess of the published totals
counted also as a strengthening factor.
Besides, gossip was circulated that do
mestic milling consumption promised
to be much larger than during last
year. Another strengthening influence
was the government weekly crop re
port which commented on unsatlsfaC'
tory yields in the eastern portion of
the spring wheat belt, and in many
sections of the winter wheat region.
About the only bearish news was a
favorably summary of the European
crop outlook as to wheat.
Need of rain in Iowa, Indiana and
other states gave an upward slant to
the corn market. Oats were relatively
weak owing to heavy sales attributed
to an eastern exporter.-
Firmness in the provision market
was due in the main to the fact that
hogs had risen to the highest quo'"
tions this season.

Crafts, Ph. I)., reformer extraordinary
Having old Beelzebub on the Jump,
ond having raised something of a
ruckus In New Jersey over the recent
"battle of the century," the well
known and amiable doctor cornea
along with a dash of romance.
The doctor Is giving a bit ot advice
cn heart-tinkering today. "How to be
happy though married" Is a hackneyed
text, but the doctor hag chosen it.
"Two of the most necessary articles
to put In stock In a new home are a
saving sense of humor and a habit of
not taking oneself too seriously," nd
vises the reform leader.
"One of the most, essential things to
home happiness is that the wife shall
lint have to come daily as a beggar to
her husband for money, but shall have
in life the control of at least the
"third" she Is entitled to by law If her
husband dies, the doctor prescribes.
"Usually the wife can spend most
wisely at least that much of the Joint
product of their wisdom and work. But
in any case she should have her fixed
share of Income und study how to use

field of domestic relations is but by
way of diversion, and he wants it dis
tinctly understood that his chief busi
ness line Is that of the "cheerful re
former." Dr. Crafts uses the sobriquet of
"cheerful reformer"' adversedly. too,
for he has come up smiling after every
battle whether he won or lost.
The fact that the Dempsey-Carpen-tler
battle was pulled off at per
schedule, that the antl-prohlbition
parade was staged In New York, and
that divorce cases continue to be em
blazoned on the front pages of the
newspapers, the doctor still wears a
smile and Insists that this wicked old
world is getting better every day.
There is Just one flea pn the reform

that Is reform opposition, to wit, one
Rev. Noah Cooper, of Nashville, Tenn.,
who Is striving to stop all commercial
activities on Sunday. This movement
by the Rev. Mr. Coopor is "Impracti

the whole reform business on the skids
if it is allowed to proceed.
Nevertheless, the doctor Isn't ex
actly worried. Worry doesn't figure in
his philosophy, and he Is hopping
