The news that a big Ameri can combine, with Steel Trust Schwab at its head, and £20, 000,000 at its back, is out to corner the world's wheat sup ply and force the price up to a minimum of 6s per bushel, re calls the attempt of young Leiter, another Yankee niil liouaire, in a similar direction ri number of years ago.

S:a.ra in Crawiord-itrsst. Os Tuesday afternoon one of the loral butchers was driving a couple of bullocks through the town en route to the slaughter-yard. When, in Crawford-st., the bullocks became infuriated and dedared war on everything and everybody, there was a general slamming of doors and windows ttp and down the street. A, couple of youths at tracted the attention of the beasts, which made a bold charge for them, I but the animals finding that they were subdued returned and charged the horse of the .driver. It would probably be a wise plan for butchers I on future occasions not to bring cattle through the town, unless they be in a dressed state.
