GRAIN AND PRODUCE MARKET
Wheat Goei Down, but Tumi in

BUI1S STICK TO CORN MARKET
OMAHA, March ii ltTo.
The Wan In whaat are morn or 1 s
discouraged because of thp poor uncross
of the allies in prnotratlns; the I'artlp
nclle straits and permitting; thw Russian
wheat to comn out through those water
to the Importing countries abroad. The
sinking of Kngltsh and French bauttleahipa
in the straits by Turkey shows that It Is
likely to bo some tltno before any train
will bo sent out of Russia.
Indian and Argentina holders of wheat I
are asking higher prices for this grain,
and in addition to this as a drawback, I
there la more or lews difficulty In making-
snipments rrom uio southern hemisphere i
i in a present time.
A bull movement In wheat la among
tho probabilities. The own Interest in
May at Chii-ago Is larger than most peo- I
pie care, to say. There are no stocks here i
to make deliveries when Mnv 1 rolls I
around, and for the shorts to make an J
attempt to even up their position In the
pit would mean sensational price ad
vances. The movement of wheat to mar
ket centers, while larger than a year ago,
is made up of this grain that was sold
some time since and Is only moving to
western points. Western receipts since
July 1 have totaled 3S0,flr0,000 bushel in
round numbers, compared with 271.l9S.dOO
busbela for the corresponding; time a year
There are two factions in the corn
market at the present time, and they
both seem to be quite strong In their
convictions. Ihoso who have adhered

demand to speak of for the cash ar

Features of the Tradlagr and Closing;
Prices on Board of Trade.
CHICAGO. March 22.-Wheat values
shrun.t today, owing to the surrender, of
Frxemysl and because of unconfirmed
rumors that Italy had dec.ared war. Tun
market closed heavy, IMi.IHc under Sqt-
uraay ninnt. Corn finished "Va'dc off.
oats down and provisions at ltXu
l'ic to a'-c decline.
acllliur of wheat became of a some
hat excited character at times in the
last part of the day. many holders taking
tho view that a sieedv end of the war
might. perliapB. bo brought about. Numer
ous stop-loss, orders were uncovered and
rallies wr only hait-nearied. notwith
standing denials that Italy had yet Joined
The extreme break in .prices compared
with tho high point of the session
amounted to 6c a bushel.
Falling off In demand for cash wheat
throughout the west, and at the seaboard
as well, tendod to make more emphatic
the bearlsn Influence of other nows.
About the only fresh encouragement for
tne Dims was at the start, when prices
developed some strength on account of
reports of decreasing stocks at Liverpool.
The effect, though, was altogether lost
sight of when attention began to turn
to the outlook - for a possible sudden
Corn gave way with wheat, but made
a fair recovery owing to some export
sales here and at the seaboard. Unfavor
able weather and the lightness of country
offerings counted at times In favor of
Oats were relatively firm as a result
of reports ojt delayed seeding. Nebraska
advices said the acreage sown to oats
would bo the smallest In twenty years.
Decreases of exports made provisions
heail down grade. The curtailment of
shipments across the sea was said to be
the result of the enforcement of the Brit
ish orders in council.'
CATTLd-: Receipts of caf.le this morn
ing were less than half as large as on
Monday of iust week, but It will be re
mem!ered that for a Monday the receipts
a week ago were the largest in tho his
tory of the market. As compsred with
most recent weeks it was Just about a
normal run. being about the samo as a
yeac ago. Advices from other selling
points Indicated a lack of life am' the
market here was no exception to the
general rule. The trade opened very alow
and It was late before buyers and sellers
could get together un a trading basis.
Htock cattle and feeders of good qirtiltty
were the fiist to mjII. The more desira
ble grades! brought prices that wore
strong to pjtssilily as much as 10c. higher
In extreme cases. Stock cows and hoi f era
were also In good demand and they, too,
comnjinded strong prices.
The better grades of fat cows were a
little stronger, but medium to common
kinds were slow and no better than
stcadv. Hulls were very slow and buyers
were "pointing to the fact that the Chi
cago market was quoted all too way from
26c to (toe lower than last week and
clnimlng that prices here were too high.
Href steers were very slow and dull.
Packers were picking up a few light
loads thst lust happened to suit them at
prices that weer steady to possibly a little
easier, hut at the same time they were
not bidding at all. or If bidding, were
offering considerably lower prices for
heavy cattle, which were a drag all tho
morning. In the end such cattlo. had to
sell at prices that were largely lfc lower
than last week's close.

The eraij Digest
For March 20th, 1915
Will contain a valuable illustrated Supplement giving the spelling, pronunciation, and definition
of the many words mentioned in connection with the war. Names of prominent persons, places,
generals, admirals, battleships, naval encounters, battlefields, etc., are given so that you can
pronounce them, and know all of the facts concerning them. Thse are a few of the hundreds :

Victoria Cross (V.C)
America's Foremost NewsWeekly
Twenty-five years ago this month the first
number of THE LITERARY DIGEST was
published. To-day, a million busy people read
it because they know that it gives all the facts on
all sides of all subjects. They know that to
keep reliably informed on every important
phase of all important happenings throughout
the world, they must read THE LITERARY
DIGEST, for there is no other weekly like it.
"It supplies a want felt alike by professional
and lay readers," testifies Justice Holmes, of
the United States Supreme Court.
If you follow the great European conflict
through the DIGEST, you will avoid all the
confusion and contradiction of the newspaper
reports you will get a clear-eyed view of
THE LITERARY DIGEST reproduces
illustrations, cartoons, maps, and portraits it
reprints every significant utterance of Europe
an statesmen and diplomatists it shows the
points of view of the countries engaged in the
war by translating and reprinting important
article documents, and news-facts from the
newspapers of these countries.
" If a man were marooned upon desert island and had access
to but one periodical THE LITERARY DIGEST be would keep
better informed on what the world ia thinking and dointf thin would the
average man In the city with hundreds of periodicals at hit command,"
is tbe way In which one cnthusisit expresses bis appreciation of it.
While the DIGEST is just now specializing
on the absorbing news of th war, it also gives
.each week all sides and shades of opinion con
cerning important happenings in the worlds of
Science, Politics, Invention, Sport, Art, Liter
ature, Religion, Education, Industry, etc. It is
profusely illustrated and handsomely printed.
