Cents a Bushel. Other
Chicago, Sept. 24.-Big breaks in
the price of wheat took place today
largely as a result of agitation for a
general cut in food costs. The smash
.of values in wheat amounted to as
much as 12% cents a bushel and the
market closed in a semi-demoralized
condition, December delivery at 2.25

the lowest price levels yet for the
Heretofore, wheat has been ad

price of other grain. The chief reason
ascribed for such strength was huge
sales of wheat for export to Europe.

its influence and especially near the
end of the day wheat market turn
