May 10—(Special advices re coived by the Kansas lirain ami Live Stoclc company.]—Tim market opened weak on lower cables and fine weather. It held steadily until the visible was posted. This showing a smaller decrease than expected and late cables being easier, with predictions of a continuance of tin-weather, a fresh drive at the market was made near the close. ] Around .sue and Ho'j'c. for .Inly a good demand was encountered, It is often said there is little demand here for wheat and shipments would seem to bear out this statement, but while J_<: premium over .luly is being paid for cash wheat, it is far from being a drug. Indian shipments for the week are less than half what they were two weeks ago and they are light from other quarters of the globe. Itis quite certain that America will have to supply the great bulk of the foreign demand. The outlook for the next crop is not encouraging and we can see little on which to sell wheat. The amount on ocean passage ought to show a considerable decrease. Corn and oats have been weaker on better weather, but first prices were the lowest of the day. Stocks are light and receipts will belight. There is a good consumptive and shipping demand and crop prospects are far from good. The long side of the market for the present seems safe. Provisions \vere rather easier in sympathy with other markets, but trade was light and lluetuation small. The fnllowIiiK Is tiie range of prices for The weather clear and fine.

As the train stopped at a small station in Kentucky it wits discovered that a switch engine had run off tho track just boyond and a wrecking crew was at work getting her oft. The conductor said we would bo detained half mi hour, and many of us went up to BOO the wreckers at work. There was a crowd of fifty around tho spot when a fat, good natured looking man, who had a raontli his enough to take in half a pumpkin pie, came sauntering up and bowed and smiled to everybody. He was just getting ready to say something when a little skinny man with a piping voice cried out at him. "Don't yo' do it, Bile Davis—don't y<v do itl If yo' do I'll give yo' dead away." The good natured man fell back at this, and I saw him wink and motion to the skinny man to draw aside for a confab. "I don't want no truck with yo', Sile Davis," was tho reply. '•! told yo' last week I'd do it, and so I will; yo' jest keep suet." The language aroused our curiosity, as a matter of course, and wo were anxious for the explanation when it camo. Tho fat man walked around for a minute or two, and when ho thought tho other was not looking ho slipped up to one of our crowd and Boftly remarked: "Stranger, would yo' mind lendin me a chaw of plug tobacker fur a day or two, till I nan git twenty-sevon dollars as is owin mo on a job?" "Hore, yo'l" shouted the skinny man, who had kept an eyo open all the time, "1 warned yo' I'd do it and now 1 Willi Gentlemen, I want to toll you about this critter.

The Second Regiment band left this morning to attend the annual band reunion of the Kansas Band association, which meets in Kingman to -day, and goes into camp, army style, for three days. There will be twenty -one bands in attendance, aud a good time is expected. These reunions, while they give the boys a vacation, and a chance for recreation, inspire a desire to surpass all former endeavors at excellency in musical renditions. They each get a new idea from the other, arid all the latest and best music is carefully examined. These reunions are a good thing, and bands attending them never fail in being benefitted hy such attendance. A Curious Clock. Mr. ,T. D. Wiener received a clock this morning which he placed in his store where it will remain for a few days, that is a curiosity in every sense of the term. It is a representation of a Swiss cottage in frame work, the front representing the cottage overhanging with grapevine, with a number of pods of the lueious fruit clinging to the vines. In the gable of the house are two small doors, on hinges, and manipulated on springs from within. The quarter and half hours are marked by a whippoorwill will sticking his head out tit the door and whistling his natural lay, the number of -times he whistles indicating the quarter—first, second, third or fourth—at the same time a chime strikes the number of the quarter also. Immediately after the announcement of the fourth quarter the other door opens and a euckoo puts out its head at the open door and announces the hour by whistling his mournful lay a number of times corresponding to the hour. At the same time a chime different from the other, announces the hour by the proper number of strokes. Tho whole is made of wood, and was carved by a mountaineer in the Hartz mountains from the timber of a tree for which these mountains area noted I on account of its ndaptibillty for carving purposes. It is, indeed, a won dorful curiosity. Stunner's Heliool Trouble. For some time the state has had a grievance against the Ost school in Sumner township. It seems that the Hermans, a large number of whom live at that place, want some German taught in their schools. The teacher who taught six months of school there last year, followed up, after the term of English school closed, by teaching two months of German school. The state, represented by County Attorney Wise, charges that the compensation was taken from public rut-iity for educational purposes in English, which do fondants deny. For some time the state has been trying to get the tpsttmony of the teacher, but he was „<>t to be found when the case would come up. At the present term of court, when the case came up, the defense was not yet ready, and the hearing was deferred until -he next term of court. The teacher in question wasin the city last Saturday, when Mr. Wise had him brought before, the probate court, and his deposition taken, to be used at the next term of court, when the case will come up for hearing. The state claims to be able to prove its charges, while the defense claims to be able to dis prove it. Such troubles are bad things and should be guarded against as far as possible. Excursion Itntcs.
