HIS BACK VP.
When Noah blew his horn, the camel
humped himself to get aboard, and by a
ourioue freak he stayed humped all his life.
Lumbago or lame back humps a man's
back simply because he cannot straighten
himself on account of the stiffness and sore
noss accompanying the ailment. Nature
helped the camel to his hump for a special
purpose. Nature will help a man to get
rid of his hump right on if he uses St.
Jacobs Oil, because the character of the
trouble is such that it needs just such a
remedy to warm, soften and straighten out
the contracted muscles. From the time of
Noah down to the present time men have
had lame backs, but only since the intro
duction of St. Jacobs Oil has the best cure
for it been known. Lumbago really dis
ables, but St, Jacobs Oil enables one to at
tend to business without loss of time.

WEEKLY MARKET LETTER,
Downing, Hopkins A Company's Review
Buyers of wheat have been slaughter
ed this week and many holders have
loosened their grip on hitherto well
held lines, believing as they did, in
the many crop reports telling of damage
in the Southwest, and more particularly
in stories from Indiana and Eastern
Missouri. Their faith appears to have
been misplaoed. They" received no as
sistance from the general public, and
people who are chronic sellers saw the
opportunity and persistently fought
the campaign, and their efforts have
met with success. The result has been
a severe liquidation of the previously
existing speculative interests, and there
can but be little doubt that the mar
ket at the close of the week is more
nearly evened up than at any time in
several years past. Wheat has lacked
a good cash demand for some time, and
without it there is only the conclusion
to be drawn that value should decline.
The fact that red' wheat commands a
high premium has not had the slight
est effect in preventing or even staying
the depression that set in early in the
week and whioh caused a loss of 5 cents
in the future deliveries and a propor
tionate break in the cash , grades. A
great many inclined to the belief -that
the break was due to manipulation and
not from legitimate causes. This theory
is rather doubtful and can be ques
tioned. The market is always more or
less subject to manipulation, but to the
extent of the decline that has occurred
this week does not seem probable. We
are of the opinion that the current
weakness is due to disappointment with
the rate of flour consumption, which
is smaller than had been expected, and
with the larger arrivals than had been
looked for, and, although the public is
suffering this disappointment, it has no
need to despair, for, at the slow rate of
ourrent consumption, the world ends
the crop season lower in supply than in
any season before since the price was 90
cents a bushel for an average of a sea
son. - . '
For various reasons it is apparent
that the present price is to be tempor
ary only. .
