''on, ruled weak at North Portland
Wednesday, cattle were nominally
"toady, .Rhllo sheep were about hold
ing their own. Receipts for the day
totaled five loads.
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.

WRITING A CHECK
There Is something about writing a Check which
inspires confidence, for it furnishes a definite rec
ord of business transactions, legal receipts, and it
enables anyone to get along with a small amount of
cash. It is the invariable rule of successful men to
write checks for all their business transactions.
We sliall be glad to have yon open a checking ac
count with tliis strong bank where you will receive
courteous and prompt attention.

Bond Markets Lose
Some of Strength.
XEW YORK, Sept. 29. (A. P.)
Stock dealings yesterday continued to
reflect the detached attitude of the
public and divergent views of profes
sional interests. Leaders rose and fell,
mostly within contracted limits, and
' (the operations of bull pools in special-
Ities were ignored.
More than half of the business cen-

Aside from fairly heavy offerings of
Reading and Pennsylvania at 1 pound
declines, rails were realtively dull. The
tentative plan of the interstate com
merce commission for a consolidation
of the transportation systems occa-
sionea nine comment. titles were
465,000 shares.-
The bond market lost some of Its
recent activity and strength. Trading
in liberty and victory Issues was fair
ly extensive, but furthef speculative
profit-taking was in evidence. Sales,

r nidations in . cotton ana grains
again diverted attention from the se
curities markets.
Money was easier to the extent that
all call loans were made at 5 per cent,

Another slump in the German mark
to the new lot of 78, with ' moderate
recovery later, was the feature of ths
foreign exchange market. British
and French rates were barely steady,
Italian bills eased and central Euro
pean remittances weakened with the
more adverse German rate. Slight
improvement was shown by Japanese
quotations and the further advance of-
the Chinese rate, as represented by
Shanghai, was ascribed to increased
purchases of bar silver for that mar
ket and (East India.

country because of the ' difference of
exchange rates. 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.

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."

Where the "Good" Car
Got Its Good Name
When a man talks about .'a
"good" car, he speaks of one that
renders constant, willing and sat
isfactory service to its owner.
Any car today is a "good" car
when it leaves the manufacturer.
But only the service and co-operation
rendered to the owner by the
dealer make it a good car all the
days of its liife. . , '
