If wo are to hnvo a net shortage'

from bis European correspondent,

"Tho ralnlr.ll on the Continent has

become more pessimistic every day. It

parisons between the coming nnd Iho

''The deficit, In the beet crop Is be
coming more and more assured. Some
pood rains l.nve fallen, but these for
the most part have been confined to
the Ilnltlc coast. Debt's figures this

little In weight, nnd this Increases tho
