DOBBIN, Agent for Avery Machine Co. 310 7th Street Lethbridge, Alu The Daily Fanners and Drovers .Journal of Chicago, in its issue of Sept. 32, thus eonzments on the. re- sult of the defeat of reciprocity in the Chicago marvel Kt'O'prociiy's defeat at the liantls of Canadian 'voters resulted in great excitement on the Chicago wheat inn rivet today, as il did at other im- wheat in this coun- try, with tlic result that tlierc was a .sharp advance in grain values. On the other hand, grain look a big drop on Canadian markets. The condition which prevailed to- day was a distinct contrast from the dullness which prevailed during the last two weeks, due to tin; belief that tho Canadians were certain to adopt the proposed trade pact with the United States. Kven at the outside markets, espec- ially near the Canadian border, the advance was more marked than in Chicago, IJuluth registering an ad- vance of S5 cents on wheat. The biggest advance was on May wheat, which opened at S1.03A, reach- ed the high point of and clos- ed at SI.03. December wheat opened at 071 cents, reached ;l high figure of cents and closed at cents. The price of September wheat op- ened at cents, point was cents, and it closed at cents. The price of September wheat op- ened at yi-i- rents, its high point was Dii-i ecu is. and it closed al 93 cents. The early morning hours oa the mar- ket were marked with the selling of whciu by the Armour and Lichstern interests, who, toward, the close, were heavy buyers. The price of on Is was also affected, closing with a gain oi.l-l to 2 centra over ihe close of yesterday was practically the high for the day. The trade here, as in wheat, was not prepared for the defeat of reciprocity, and buying was. on a .heavv scale- Excited in Pit Not in months has the big wheat pit filled wiih a surging, excited mass of traders such as fought for a 'ootholtl in the excited market this Horning. Tho stroke of the bell started a roar of buying such as the exchange hall has not heard in years. Visions of scarcity of milling wheat n ihp northwest stirred the trade o greatest activity. Tn northwest markets, the price ex- 'losioi: was greater. While Deceir.ber wheat here jumped from flnijc to 97-1 SLIHC nHiiiih was rushed up 5c or more at Minneapolis arid1 Dulutli. Big milling interests in that quar- ter have a scabby, light weight spring wheat crop Ibis year. Thcj were counting on.'choice wheat from Canada. N'Viw'they will be driven to .substitute; hard .winter, wheat from the southwest. The adverse fate of reciprocity will be a great help to the Arniour-Lich- stern La Suite street holders of enor- mous lines of cash wheat. Expects Big Advance James A. Patten said last night: "If reciprocity is defeated I expect to add an advance of 20c per bushel in spring wheat and to see tho hard ler go to lOc over red winter. Red winter might advance a lit- hut it would not hold. In my opinion, the northwestern states will have enough yood milling wheat lo carry them through if Reciprocity is defeated.. In such event, the hard winter will be used up very rapidly. Red winter wheat Cannot advance much wilhoul a foreign demand, and: they, are now selling it cheaper h of tin- of Commerce today was a wild one and prices jumped more than 'lc for both December amt May. opened On a range of Ue, with as the. top price.

McKinnon made this state ment "Defeat of rcciptocity was unexpected and is a surprise its most sanguine opposition. hi brief, it pnfs Hie United States, es- pecially the U-rriliyy rasl of the Rockii.s, on a domestic ijasis, and completely changes past calculations.

Of course, 1 know it is not a lot to kick l_bout, but there is a very old saying 'till going the rounds, "every nttle n't helps."

LITTLE HERO SAVES FRIEND Nine Year old Boy Saves Big boy in Clever Style Prince Rupert, Sept. from drowning; at Hay's Creek yes- by a boy of Milne, L-uei AInzzei, who is "fourteen j tears old, bag -good reason to be thankful that lie is able to run around this morning. His .plucky young rescuer is Gilbert wlioue action resterday afternoon was a splemlii nstance of boy bravery Though be only leanred to s'wim ab out four weeks ngo, and was so mucl younger and smaller than the bo- he rescued, Gilbert never hesitate., for a moment in plunging into fleei water after the drowning -boy. How the accid-ent happened is aim pie enough. There is no proper bath ing place for boys anywhere arount the waterfront, and the boys are com pellcd to pick up their swimming Knowledge in all kinds of doubtfully deep bathing holes here and there, ft, was at one of these, near Hay's Creek that Lugi Mazfeei and Gilbert were bathing yesterday about 5 p.m. Stepping from a log or float of some k'nd, to what seemed to be solid ground, Luii found yielding, treach- erous stuff below his loot, lie bad stopped on to a floating mass of rub- Dish, which'gave way, throwing him nto deep water. Ho could not swim. Donaldson instantly plung- ed after him and succeeded in grab-1 bing him by the collar after ii abort struggle, in which the boy clutched hard, and dragged his plucky little rescu'ar -below" the surface. Gil- bert, stuck to the task, however, and in a minute was near enough the bank for both boys lo grasp solid ground and get out of danger. PARENT WILL RESIGN Ottawa, Sept. S. Par- ent, chairman of N.
