oabt gained Hi- ami proilion niiiKhl at
ndtattee. The dry weather assumed sc.
rlous nspe- ts In the eves of iimny of the
i-horts !n win-tut nt the Mart and 'h'lr
nervousness led to some, liberal covering
at the opening,
There wore sellers of May Wheat at t'ic
uloe of the market yesterday at V.'n' for
May, but till morning nolsuly would sell
tl for less than STi'jji1, and there were plenty
of buyers nt thai. The limit of irl If -yon
J which the short were not inrlliipil to
bo except upon further compulsion was
booh reached at ItSHc. mid having paid that
for a few lle they refused In climb any
blghcr at that time. The wenthir biiionit
litre sent out early Intimation of what
might be expected of the elements up to
I'rlday night, and there was no rain In the
"prediction.". The slgtml service peoile ill
Is'cw York and Ml. Louis, however, wired
here that there would be rain In the West,
commencing on Friday afternoon. The lat
ter prediction created a less anxious mood
to Kiipidalit the e.ullr fever of the shorls
and the price dropped back for a moment
to iV.'im.v, ,, Apart from the uncertainty
of the weather there wax nothing In tho
market news to seriously distill b the mar

The total receipt" at primary markets
nmounte.l Id 22(.0ii bushels eouipared with
Ijl.tX) on the -orr--p.-iidlnr day the year
before. The export learnnecs were equal
In wheat and Hour to 3.V..O00 bushel, of
which 229.O00 bushels was In the shape of
wheat. The foreign news wns Inconse
qunntlal. Liverpool win ipioled a trllle
IiIkIut and Pari" an I lbrlln a shade lower.
A Nciv Vork dispatch h.iUI that advice
from Argentine wcro to the effect that the
crops of that country had been d imaged
by rain. May wheat dropped to 5l'se about
balr an hour from the clne. Covering pur
chases amounting to perhaps l.WO.HM bush
els mad" by Pardrldge caused .1 recovery
from the lat mimed ipiotatlon and the lat
est trading win nt 5"'4c.
The corn market wa-i dull nnd wllhout
nny very noteworthy feature". The pri
mary lecelpts to-day amounted to lSO.OOO
lm.he, against SSI,I1 bushels a year ago.
The advance nf the price of July delivery
ns compared with May. which has been In
jiroBress for a few day.-. IndlcateR that the
longs are chunlnc their deals over Into
the later deal. May ,-orn opened nt Idle
and the early llrmneis of wheat helped in
sustain It at cloe to the opening ipiotatlon
for some time, bin Mibsctpient weakness In
wheat eaueil a corresponding feellmr In
corn nnd the price declined to 4051i lfii4e
nbotit forty-live intnules from the close.
The latest trading was lit HVV'.
uats were lairiy active. ri acre was kocm
buylnc early ami prices were tinner. Later,
however, orders were evidently tilled up
with 11 slack demand and Ihc weaker tecl
Inc then prevailing In corn, the strenirtli
pave way to a decline. The lowest price
nt the dny nevertheless did not reach be
low yesterday's, last quotation. May sold
between 2ic and Vc, closed nt SO'-ic. July
rnnsed from 21 to 2S", c ami resttil at -He.
The prlnclial feature of the market was
itho urgent demand for cash stuff for ship
ment. Tho provision market was stronp. It
opened hlcher on the lio receipts, provluu
to lie ln.oi) less than had been estimated
land on tho expectation that ir,,iV) will lie

Texas millers have been buying whent out
of Knnsas City elevntots since the first of
the year, tit three months they have taken
about a million bushels. There nte about
Stunt) bushels still In the elevators which
wl go to Texas. After that Is gone whero
will the Texas mills go for wheat? It Is
said by elevator men that right now there
Is as much Inquiry from that source as
there has been nt any time. It Is declined
that many of the mills which In February
bought enough to run them thirty days nre
getting out or wheat again, and they find
their source of supply exhausted, Some of
the elevator men think Texas millers will
soon be buying In St. Louis. The stock of
wheat there l 3,2.io,0i bushels.
The Arkansas City Milling Company, of
Arkansas city, Kas in writing to . W.
(-.cUvp1'. ""dor iinte of March 27, says:
'Would say nt present time there Is fttllv
50 per cent of the win at dead and past all
hope. The wheat Is going back everv day.
The hard wheat seems to be doing better,
but It Is needing r.tln badly. We tecelved
a letter from a mill nt Oklahoma City, o.

complaining letters jesterday. Had re
ports came from Topeka, Lincoln, Sallna,
Hutchinson, Abilene, Junction Cltv, Doug
lass, Cheney nnd a number of other points,
nnd some from Nebraska, thnt the soft
wheat Is very badly damaged. .Most of the
grain men arc Inclined to believe that the
prospects are discouraging. A division sn
perlntxndent of the Missouri Pacltle in
southern Kansas is said to have leported
that tho crop is nlmot an utter failure
between Carney and Conway Springs, c.
L. C. Mcnnls, one or the Kansas Grain
Company's buyers nt Douglass, Kas.,
writes: "The country around Douglass
cannot possibly raise enough wheat for the
local mill and I hnvo heard us high as
90 per cent estimated killed south of us.
I he ground Is very dry. Tho snow and
rain we had a weelc ago Is helping- what
whent I not dead, but the general prospect
Is the worst I have seen In 17 years."
O. T. Nnst. of Cheney, writes to the same
tlrm: "I drove sixty miles yesterday, ex
amining wheat fields. 1 round them much
worse than I expected. Not over half tho
