Chicago, July 16.—The wneat market opened
decidedly weak and unsettled to-day. The talk
in the pit centered on about 12,000.000 bushels of
old wheat in elevators here, and the country
being on the verge of harvesting a crop of un
known dimensions, but certainly one the largest
ever known, etc. August started at 7034°. and
almost immediately sold off to 70J4c, but later
it reacted to 70%c. There were no further de
velopments to sustain advances, and the market
became dull. August reacted to 7036 c, closing
at that figure. Corn opened firmer, and was
vigorously bulled on the strength of the drought
and large short interest in August option. Au
gust started at 37%c, and quickly sold up to
37%c before noon. The shorts got pretty well
filled up, and from 47%c August went back to
37)4e. and stayed there or thereabout with a
good deal of persistency. While August was
making its advance of 3%c, September oDly
moved %c, proving pretty conclusively that
there was “short” demand for August. August
closed at 3736 c. Oats were dull, traders ap
parently taking little interest in the market.
The feeling was also inclined to be weaker.
August started at 26c, and sold off to 253fic. Less
interest was manifested in the provision market
and trading was lighter than it has been during
the previous days of the week. The market
opened rather tame, with some desire on the
part of “longs” to realize, and prices declined
to inside figures. Later rather more steadiness
prevailed, and prices rallied again and closed at
outside figures. August lard opened at $8 70,
sold off to $6 67%, and closed at $6 70. August
short ribs started at $8 15, sold down to SB, and
closed at opening figures.

LATEST FEMININE FANCIES.
The Yachting Pillow and Bedspreads in
New York, July Ift.—The very latest for
young ladies, fancy work is to make yacht
ing pillows for the gentlemen of their ac
quaintance who happen to own yachts.
Every who has ever “sailed o’er the blue
water” knows how necessary to comfort are
sofa pillows in the cabin; every one wishes
to doze or 101 l about, and pillows are in de
mand; there can’t be too many of them.
The pillow exclusively for yachts is covered
with navy blue sateen that is laoed onto the
pillow on either side by a white <-ord and
tassel. This gives it a nautical ap|ienrance
at once. Have a design of the yacht stamped
ono side of the blue covering, and work in
outline stitch with white silk. ,On the re
verse side have the name of the yacht
stamped in large letters in old English text,
and also work with white silk in outline
stitch. They are very pretty, easily done, and
a most, appropriate present. If one desires to
give still more, an ensign flag to match is
attractive, with the initials of the owner
worked upon the blue Held as well as the
name of the yacht.
The latest in liedspreads is white satin
with arabesques stamped all over the sur
face, or else a vine, both to be done in out
line stitch with gold colored silk; a white
satin bolster should have the initials of the
owner similarly worked. The bedspreads
are also made in other pale colors, but. the
white or pale green are prettiest. Tno latter
give a cool appearance. The coverlids are
also made of fine linen, with vine in outline
stitch around the edge and a medallion in
the centre; they are all beautiful and may
be varied to suit the owner. A tablecloth
of fine linen, with each of the damask
figures outlined in different, colored silks,
makes a very beautiful spread for a
country house, with window curtains to
One of the newest feminine fancies is
jeweled hat pins; they are an expensive
luxury and only suitable for evening hats.
Amber is very fashionable for articles of
toilet, since the rage for white mid yellow
came in; amber-handled glove nud boot
fasteners, amber puff boxes, ring cases, etc.
Amber beads are much worn.
At a lawn party the other day devili>d
clams in their own shells wereerved. After
the edible portion was consumed the shell
was found to be embellished with the mono
gram of the hostess.
Ladies are painting the tiles for the fire
places of their country houses. A pretty de
sign is the story of ‘ Puss in Boots,’’ or “"Dick
Whittington aiid His Cat.’’ Usually these
titles illustrate a story, and those of English
origin, that have been familiar from child
hood, are the favorites.

A RISING LIGHT IN JOURNALISM.
A Young Editor Who is Making Hia
Way in the World.
New York, July 16. —Paul Dana
strides up Broadway any afternoon
in the style of his father, with a
motion that is sweeping, rapid and full of
force and decision. Paul Dana, the only
son of the renowned editor of the Nun, lias
held the chair of editor-in-chief during the
summer, while his father was enjoying a
merry time abroad. He is by far the young
est editor in control of any of the leading
dailies of the city at this time, being still in
his twenties, and being full of the spring of
youth. He has come to the editorial chair
drilled and equipped in a way that, no other
editor hi this city can boast of. He is more
than a scholar in the ordinary sense of the
word. After passing through Harvard he
took a full course in law in this
city; he then traveled in Europe under
the most advantageous circumstances; ho
was next put in training under his father
for service on tho press. In all kinds of
sports he is an expert, and in some of the
most strenuous of them he is a practitioner.
In music he is more than an amateur. His
aptitude for politics came by inheritance,
lie has enjoyed the best social advantages
in the most cultured circles of society.
Withal, he has exceptional gifts of mind,
which especially qualify him for the duties
of an editor; and he has acquired, within a
few years, a clear, nervous and strong style
of writing. Courteous, amiable and gener
ous, never lacking in self-possession or self
command, the young editor enjoys opportu
nities of self-advancement in his chosen pro
fession such as have been given to no one
else of his peers in New York.
Paul Dana has a compact head, clear-cut
features and a well-knit frame j he is tall and
lithe; he has a constitution which, with his
good habits, ought to carry him safely
through the first third of the t wentieth cen
tury. He is always dressed nattily, in the
very latest fashion, and you can see that he
keeps himself in prime order, as one accus
tomed to the best in the world. As lie
strides down Broadway in the morning or
up in the afternoon during these dog days
one who does not know him would lie un
likely to suspect his power while holdingthe
chair of the Sun's editor. John Swinton.
