SheepAfter some early aalea had been
made lie lower yaatarday, the markat
weakened farther, and most of the lamba
which were reported as unsold at noon
moved at . llo and In some cases quarter
reductlona. Some of the offerlnga went
out for a ahearing, but even then three
eara were carrlsd uvar for today,
Borne eort of n decline was aasured from
the very outaet this morning, but It waa
well along towarda midday before Bailers
were able to gel n.uo'i o? an Idea of whet
they oould do, Chlcego eatlmated even
heavier Bundles than they had yeetsrday,
and that In ttaelf was bound to have a bear
lab. Influence here. Then. too. the unoar.
talnly aa to local recelpta, and the fact
that owing to the heavy warm snow all the
offerlnga were soaking wst were addl-
Uonal bearish factora.
Up to midday only a small proportion
of the offerlnga had found aa outlet, and
thaae did not furnish a very aatlBfactory
r beats for eomparteonr, bb there waa a great
deal of difference of o. lnl n vt how much
should be allowed for the wetness of the
rieacee.. On -paper the aalea that had been
. made looked a euarter to In most caaea

Chicago, March 1. Bit export purchasm
of wheat and assertions that Germany was
Inclined to modify Its submarine campaign
rallied tho wheat market today after a fresh
decline. The close was strong 102o net
higher, with May at i.ii.kio and
July at 91.64Vl-66. corn gained Mc
and oats V c. Provisions finished at
losses of 7 0i 36c.
Much nervousness and depression pre
ceded the development of strength In' the
wheat market. The chief bearish factor was
confirmation of report! that a serine ot rail
way strikes had been arranged to oegin
Saturday If the eight-hour law Issue Is not
settled prior to then. Beneficial rains in
the winter crop region tended runner to
give the bears a transient advantage and
too, did paace talk oaaea on tneones
regarding food shortage in belligerent coun
tries. Signs, however, of important ex, on
aalea gradually changed the temper of the
trade, especially alter gossip became cur
rent that buying on the part oi representa
tives of foreign governments had in the
laat few daya run Into millions of 'bushels.
Rumors of a wiutngnesa by uermany to
change the submarine blockade so aa to
avoid war with the United States received
considerable attention In the last hour of
trading. Notwithstanding that the rumors
were very Indefinite, their circulation led
shorts to make a general rush to cover. Aa
result final prices were sharply above
yesterday's close, and also within a fraction
of tho hlgheat point touched today. .
Corn displayed Independent strength ow
ing to the smalliess of receipts her and at
other primary centers. Besides, shipments
war larger than waa the casa laat year.
Oats hardened mainly because ot the up
turns In other cereals. Leading commis
sion houses were active buyers.
Sharp breaks in the value of provisions
were brought about by the threatened rail

Snow and more snowl
TJic temperature in Omaha laried
only three degrees in the twenty
eight hours from 6 a. m. Monday to
10 a. m. Tuesday. The lowest was
31 and the highest 34 degrees. Nor
is there any important change in tem
perature in sight. "Unsettled, with
probably rain or snow and partly
cloudy," is the prediction.
Rains and snows have been falling
the last twenty-four hours all over
the country from the Rocky to the
Allegheny mountains, a great boon
to the crop prospects. Reports from
bleeding Kansas say the ground was
so bone dry it was cracking.
Worth Many Millions.
If other snow and rain storms have
been worth a million dollars to the
country lying between the Missouri
river and the mountains it is asserted
that the one now general over the en

The storm that set in Monday con

the widest area of any in years. Ac
cording to the reports to the rail
roads, it extends from Illinois all the
way west into Colorado and Wyom

down into Oklahoma. With the ex
ception of a pocket up around Sheri
dan, Hardin and Billings, where the
markings were 6 to 10 below zero,
temperatures range all the way from
16 to 40 degrees above zero.
Rain with the Snow.
All over northern and central Ne

has been a mixture of rain and snow,
alternating. The precipitation is fig

Through southern Iowa and Ne

rule and the precipitation has been
greater than farther north. Reports
to the Union Pacific indicate that at
numerous places in southern Ne
braska and Kansas there had been a
precipitation of one to three inches in
the last twenty-four hours.
The heavy fall of snow and rain has
caused some alarm among the oper

If you speak slowly and distinctly when the
