greater decline. Packers simply did not
want to take on any more than was neces

Bullish sentiment developed rapidly in the
wheat trad after th probable amallosss
of the exportable urplus had beea an
nounced. Th estimate waa from a leading
expert her and wa accompanied by a
rnirmts on hi part that the government
computation of the 1916 yield had been
3,000,000 bushels 100 high. Asld from the
figure en th exportable sili-plus, however,
the markt had an upward tendency owing
to prospect that American vessels soon
would resum Bailing asd that shipments
to Kurep In consequence would be much
1ncrad. Improvement in railway traffic
facilities t Gulf of Mexico port counted
also ts some xlnt In favor of higher
Snow fall In th southwest retarded mors
or lees th ad vanes sf new-crop deliveries
of wheat. Besides, on account ot th week
end profit taking, ther was a moderate
reaction all around from lop price aa the
day approached finish, Nevertheless the
buying power tn the market stned to show
no curtailment and ther war hat few
trader sufficiently venturesome to put out
new abort line.
Corn established a new high price record.
Th reasons were that th bog market etlll
wa aoaring, and that th latest reckon
ings put the domestic farm reserves of
corn at the iewast aggregate stnos 1$9S.
Oat responded in lively fashion to the
strength of other grain. Trade waa much
larger than recently has been ths ca, and
It wa id rural sffertags also had In
creased. urgent export demand for lard waa a
factor In hoisting the entire provision
market to unprecedented level. Other
ausee were the con tin us ace of the hog
shorts ge and of the remarkable accompany
ing advance ot th value ot corn.
