Chicago, Sept 7.--Weok-ond even- tag up of trades brought about advances today In the corn market. Ughtness of receipts counted in fnvor of the hulls. Offerings were not largo. Opening prices which ranged from V4c off. to MiC up with October $1.0?% to Jl.SSy, and November $1.57 to $1.67',i were followed by moderate upturns all around. Later the murket -weakened owing to assertions that stoppage of beer- making would increase the use of barley as feed, and would reduce the feeding demand for corn. Besides there were many predictions |bf a larger movement of corn to primary tenters nuxt week. The close was unsettled, MiC to' \%c net lower with October $lX74fc to and November ll.GISH to $1.60%. Oats hardened wllh corn. Changes, though were narrow. After oponlng unchanged to Mc lower with October '.IVjc to 72%c the market scored slight general gain. Provisions were Irregular. • Pork fell 41.00 the maximum for 11 single day. Lard continued firm, however; and upheld ribs. Trade lacked volume. Sharp rallies took place subsequently in pork as a result of cover- in;; for the week end. Chicago Closing Prices. Chicago, Sept. 7.—COIiiN—Septem­ ber U.56tt; October 11.07%0>14; November HM'id&fA.

Inasmuch aa official reports indicated that the bulk of the corn crop would not be safe from frost before September 15 or 20, BerloUB misgivings could not but result from word of heavy froBts In North Dakota and Minnesota and from lighter but continued visitations elsewhere. The tact Unit a minimum price of $3.20 for wheat next year had been definitely sotilcd was also a bullish factor.- Strength in oata come almost entirely from'corn.

GERMANY SCOLDING. 4> * €> . <$>. London, Friday, Sept. 6.—(British Wireler.s.)^-The German official news agency, the Wolff Bureau, is blamed by tho Cologne Gazette tor Ihe maimer In which tho German people Save taken the defeat of their Teutonic forcTa to heart. The Gazette too complains that the Wolff Bureau's official reports aroused tbe Impression with their description of great German successes, that Germany's enemies were exhausled and tluit It needed only one supreme exertion to accomplish their utter defeat. Tho paper recalls how the harvest was over-estimated in tho first years of the war, how German hopes wore "based on promised supplies from Russia and the limine and on tho U-boat war, and how "inventions of all sorts were trumpeted forth." The Gazelle quotes from a Wolff Bureau dispatch which : spoko of enormous supplies of clothing cai> tured In Russia, Italy and northern France anil which represented the booty iu rubber and copper as sufficient to cover tbe German army's requirements for a year. "It is not to be wondered," tho newspaper says, "that there would bo disappointment and mistakes when'afterwurd wo are asked to part with our clothes snd door handles to cover your general needs."

At the beginning of the war it was found that most of tbe lemon drops being manufactured for tie, coiamer- clal market' were not adaptable, for use in the Army. Most of these lemon drops were made of glucose, and inferior and imitation > fruit flavors. The lemon drops now being supplied to the Army are made of pure- granulated Bugar aud are flavored with an !,emuWion mado from the rind of the lemon It is found that an extra sour lemon drop Is the favorite with the soldiers The product made from the formula used has tlie tblrsl-qupnching quality of lemonadp.

I WALL STREET J TWO WEDGES HAVE MET Those Driven by British and German in Center of Line. CRITICAL POtNT REACHED A Few Dayt Ago, Then Tide Began to Turn in Paver of tbe Allies. influenced by the further farorablo war news and absence of yesterday's pressure, stocks displayed a steadier tone throughout today's brief session. Short covering also added to the better tendency, especially in such leaders as United States steel and Canadian Pacific, which retained tho greater part of their two point gains. M'ore - moderate strength was shown by Anacondaicopper,'American car, United Stales rubber, Maxwell •motors, United'.'cigars, Atchison, Wabash preferred and Seaboard Air Lino. Union Pacific was slightly- reactionary with St. Paul and General Motors. The closing was firm. Sales approximated 200,000 Bhares. The moderate rally in which short covering was no Inconsiderable factor, attended the opening of today's stock market, most leaders showing fractional advances over yesterday's final prices. Trading was cautious, however, in consequence of the additional credit restrictions and dealings for the most part wero limited to relatively small lots. Union Pacific was the only .investment Issue to register more than a nominal dgcllno but this was offset by Canadian Pacific's gain of 114 points. Steels, equipments aud specialties were steady to firm. New York Money. New York, Sept. 7.—Mercantile paper 6 percent.

Tag, person who can, but doesn't buy, is a vlucker •—Modern Woodman, (By K. Walter.) London, Sept 4.—The British wedge and the German wedgo have met In the center of tho great battle line and the German wedge is crumbling. London .has been holding its breath tho last few days. We knew that a critical point of the campaign had been reached and that everything depended upon the ability of Halg's men to bold, crush and disperse the German concentration west of Cambral. The capture of Lens on the north and of Cjueant on the south shows plainly that ' the penetration of the British wedge with i|£ center on tho Arras Cambral road has been effective. Until yestcjrday there was still a possibility that the heroic advanco at this point might be checked at tbe flanks and so leave us with nothing but a dangerous salient for all our sacrifices. But the advance has been carried out with such ( «kllu*ul concentration and support that it has sent shivers up and down tho German line and has- smashed tVe German wedge which bad been farmed to meet It. Arras Was Key. In previous cables, I have frequently called attention to the importance of Aria* as the key of the whole situation. Home's first British army which defended It was the rock on which the German spring offensive split. The advance of tbis same army IS today being used by Foch as the key move in his Btrategy. The only question Is which way will he turn it, north or south? Tbe capture.of Lens on the north was less strongly contested than that of Quaint on the south, but it would not do to conclude from this that Hindenburg feared the northern turn of tho key more than the southern one. Lens had been au uncomfortable position {or a long time. What will be clear to both sides is that the brilliant progress of General 'Mangin has brought him to some very difficult territory In tho hills aud forests that lie between Gulscard, Chauny and Laon, a territory' which now constitutes the main citadel of tho •German line. It is in the'apex of the great salient formed by the whole German lino from the North sea to Verdun. Direct a-ssault; Of this citadel would be a Jcostly'business. Main Purpose.-. It may be assumed that, the main purpose of the British advance is to relieve tho French and force a surrender of tho citadel by gradual absorption of the Hlndercburg line, which defends it from a flank attack on the north. On this theory the first obective whie.h Cermany's yesterday's defeat makes possible would be an advance to ^Cambral and the ultimate objective, the capture of Saint Quentin which would render the citadel of hills and forests untenable. But before this can be accomplished a battle of unprecedented scale must bo fought whose duration must* depend entirely upon the speed which tho conquering British armies can maintain, always supposing that Hindenburg fools himself strong enough to facu such a battle. If he does not a German retreat on a sensational scale would be the only alternative.
