THE GOOD High Class Grocers $3.50 CO. Fhone 525 Winnipeg, Aug. 2.-Trading in the pit today was inactive and only a small volume of business- was done.

October wheat was three cents up at the opening and was bid up to $2.24 during the session. October and December oats showed fractional advances over yesterday.

London.-Many maladies hitherto uncommon In Belgium have been caused by the lack of food and other distressing conditions in that country, writes a resident of Antwerp to his son, here. He adds: "A celebrated doctor tells me that he has many cases a morbid depression which was before infrequent. Apart from the alarming increase of tubercular trouble there are many cases of scurvy, tumors, skin diseases and digestive troubles, due chiefly to tho unchanging diet ot bean soups. Mortality has trebled and the number of births has decreased by one-half. Medicaments are raro and very expensive. "Every one is growing thinner and the price of living Increases dally. Meat costs $1.25 a pound and ham about $1.87 a pound. Milk is very difficult to obtain. The news ot the latest British successes has cheered us up very much, and, in spite ot everything, we expect your armies here this year. We are all quite coik fldent of the result of the war." The writer tells also of persons, sentenced to three months' Imprisonment for trying to cross the Belgian frontier and of the arrest of a -woman for trying to send a letter to her son in the Belgian army. 0-CIDE THE POTATO GROWER'S FRIEND We are in receipt of one hundred pounds of Bug-o-Cide (a blend of Paris Green with other arsenical preparations especially active in the destruction of the Potato Bug) and aa this Is the last grain of any similar poison procurable in the West we would advise intending users to purchase without any delay. 80LD IN SMALL LOTS ONLY J.
