In the hog alleys there was only a 4 mall run Wednesday but the small ewratnn appear to have their immed iate requirements and appear no long er willing to pay the extreme prem iums over what the big packers are able to secure their South Dakota of ferings. Hogs started the Wednesday trade with a depressed tone, but there was no business In sight. Early quo tations wore therefore on a nominal basis.

HieAmencariNalional Bank Pendleton, Oregon, 'Strongest Sank in Cast em Oregon" Bond Markets Lose Some of Strength. XEW YORK, Sept. 29. (A. P.)

Then, too, the cut In ocean freights was said to have de creased Xo. 2 hard winter wheat at Liverpool to 11c below the cost of re placing. After the close, gossip was circulated that 2,000.000 bushels had been taken for export to Europe, in cluding presumably 1,300,000 bushels of Canadian wheat for Greece. Corn fell with wheat and Septem ber touched the lowest level since 1912. Oats followed the downward slide of' other cereals.' Exhaustion of stocks of pork here led to continued anxious bidding from shorts and to a sharp new jump in pork quotations. Other provisions, however, were easy. VN HOME E ICuropran Conditions Cause Lower AVlieat. CHICAGO, Sept. 29. (A. P.) Un easiness regarding European condi tions had much to do with bringing anout fresh declines in wheat. The market closed heavy 2 l-4o to 2 5-8c net lower with December $1.20 7-8 to $1.21, and May, $1.25 to $1.25 1-2. Corn lost 7-8c to 1 7-8c, and oats. 1-2 fS5-8c to 3-4c. The present outcome varied from 5c decline to $1.75 advance. With a spectacular new break in the value of the German mark and further evidence of great strain jn the British unemployment situation, wheat show ed apparent lack of consideration in buying. Reports also were current that Switzerland had decided to ob tain her cereal supplies henceforth from Roumanla Instead of from this PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 29. (I. X. S.) Persona who rent houses In Phil adelphia live in constant terror of the "own your own home" advocates. Few houses are offered for rent, most of those on the market being the prop erty of estates, bringing in a steady rental, showing no signs of reduction. One man who gained wide publicity by reducing the rents of several houses he owned at the time of the peak of high rentals, prompcly served his tenants with "buy or get out" notices as soon as he had received all the pub lic applause his property press-agented action had won him. Real estate men and perative build ers are conducting meetings under the auspices of the Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce to bring about, among other things, a reduction In rentals of business houses, and the few homes there are still left to rent. HOl'SIXO CRISIS FACKD 9PRIXG FIELD, 111., Sept. 29. (T. N. S.) Lacking 2,000 homes in a city of 65,000 population, Springfield homes are at a premium and a critical rent problem Is being faced. Neither real estate men nor the general public are showing Inclinations to build and but a few scattered homes are being erected. Rents are high, averaging $75 per month for a modern medium sized house. The great demand for homes is keeping rent prices constant ly on the upward trend. An incident recited by one real estate man shows how demand affects the rent prices. A four-room cottage was vacated. An ad in the paper brought 239 appli cations in one morning and the little went to the highest bidder for practi cally twice the amount the owner In tended to ask. Until building is started on a large scale no hopes are held for a reduc tion in rents and no one wants to build. OFFICE CAT CLASSIFICATION OF WIVES CHICAGO, Sept. 29. (I. N. S.) There are three grades of wives, ac cording to Ambrose J. Rose, ninety one years, old, who was Just granted a divorce from wife No. 3. The grades are "pretty good," "Just medium," and "no good at all." Here is the way Rose fit the scale to his own wives: "My first was pretty good, the second Just medium and the third no good at all." The fourth, he Insisted would be "Impossible."
