Peterson's petition, asking that the divorce decree awarded her husband, A. R. Peterson, early this year be vacated, was denied by Judge Joseph J. Clark Wednesday.

A striking exhibit of broad public buying or merchandise turnover, is embodied in the current sales figures of Sears, Roebuck and company, which not only are running far in excess of last year and establishing the best levels since 1929, but actually are going contrary to the usual seasonal tendency. Sears' is, of course, the largest organization of its kind in the world, and its volume affords an excellent cross section of national buying tendencies, inasmuch as It embraces both the rural and urban demand. Chain stores, which include about three score of larger units in the department store class, and two leaser or more specialized groups, now account for approximately half the business of the company. The remainder comes from the mail order division, which always has been considered a direct reflection of farmer purchaser. The goods cover almost everything from pins to furniture.

LITTLE CHANGE IN GRAIN PRICES Wheat Closes Steady, Corn Fraction to More Than Cent Down, CHICAGO, July 25. UP)--Despite sensatibnal reports of severe crop damage to spring wheat, grain markets wound up today with little net change in prices. Rapid fluctuations were accompanied at times by active trading, but taken as a whole, business lacked volume. Late reactions from earlier advances were associated with unusual lack of general public speculative interest. Wheat closed steady, unchanged to % higher compared with yesterday's finish; Sept.,'86%@%; corn, @% down; Sept., 75%@%; oats, off to 1 cent up, and provisions varying from 2 cents decline to 12 cents gain.

(.Pi- Open Today .85'., · 85 Vs .87 .7614 .63 i .34 i 1 .31 'i ' .MARKET REVIEW Wheat--There were moderate declines this morning due primarily to weakness in Liver. poo! which was affected by the first offer- Ings of wheat from Russia which were at a price of 8S cents cif, England duty included and which were somewhat above parity prices of other countries. The weakness in our market however was short lix-ed and as commission houses bought moderately prices ran up about 2 cents from the eariy figures. They later reacted close to last night's figures. There was strength in the Minneapolis market where buying was general and news from the rust infected areas of the northwest was as unfavorable as it has been in recent days. While the news today was generally bullish, there are many (actors in the wheat situation to keep in mind and we continue to believe it good policy to take advantage of upturns to dispose of long grain. Corn--Commission houses bought a little corn at the opening but later prices reacted and no definite trend was indicated. Van Dusen report said that it was evident that the northwest h.is raised a very good crop °f rye and oats and that corn has been benefited by recent hot weather and its condition at present is generally good.
