that the aggregate is not materially dif

actually a shortagu of some millions of
bushels in the supplies of the world nc
cording to tho most reliable figures of
supply und demand und tho present un
paralleled depression In tho wheat
trade of the world Is to tho statisticians
To tho practical business men In tho
grain trade, however, it Is simply a
question of pressing present supplies
nnd of an entire absence of any disposi
tion anywhere In tho world to buy
whent In large quantities for specula
tive purposes. If the figures of crops
and of requirements are correct tho
present depression Is certain to glvo
way before tho end of tho cereal year
to buoyancy nnd to ndvunclug prices.
Three countries in Ettropc-Itnly,
Spain und Englnnd have poorer crop

crops are much better thnn last your,
though many of them aru not above tho

provement The French crop, nccord
lug to the lntest government estimate,
is JJOO.fiOO.OOO bushels of very heavy

In Germany the wheat crop Is esti
mated ut 100,000,000 bushels, against
85,000,000 in 1MU. The empire will re
quire supplies from abroad of about
iJO.OOO.tiOO bushels. Tho German ryo
crop Is satisfactory and seems to havo
reached 215,003,000 bushels.
Tho preliminary estimates of tho
crop of Attstro-IIungary place the total
yield this year at 17(1,000,000 bushels,
ugainst IUS.000,000 bushels produced
last year, permitting tin exportation of
ubout S,000,000 bushels.

tity available for export'itton will b'a
not more than 00,000,000 bushels. Tho
Russian rye crop appears, nccordinir to
figures given by the Economist Fran
