vere damage and seemed to Imply that un-
leaa rain fell soon the yield in many sections
might be almost a total failure. The effect
of such sdvlees was undoubtedly heightened
by the ract that tne reoent enforcement
of an embargo In Argentina had led North

supply readily available for Europe. In thla
connection the high premiums being paid
