Joseph Le Clerc, of Rice county, Kns.,
writes to Christopher A: Smith: The pros
pect for wheat here Is not quite its good
as it was lat-year nt tills time. More of
it was frozen out, hut to offset that we
have more moisture In the ground than
ib.ie was last April. I am not well post
ed about the rest of the slate, but I know
Kansas and Kansans, nnd If the slate had
a big prospect It would have been blown all
ov, r the I'nlon. The silence on the sub.
led leads me to believe that the prospect
Is not good. There mo about ln0,'KI bush
els of wheat I ft in this county, and there
ate perhnps llfty counties which average
as much, making about 5,ii,tj0 bushels of
wheat In the state now.
Illinois Crop Hulletln: Showing the con
dition of the growing winter wheat crop
on April 1: The area seeded last fall was
fully 7 per cent, or 130,1-vl acres less than
the area seeded In the preceding season.
Tho plant got a fairly good start before
winter set in. nnd was rarely without the
protection of a covering of snow during
the prevalence of the extreme cold weath
er. Tin per cent of the plant destroyed
by freezing, floods and llv Is so small that
hut few cot respondents took It into con
sideration at nil. Some nlarm was caused
by the drouth of the past month, hut little
damage was done to the growing crops that
will not b- fully compensated by the gen
eral rain of last Saturday and Sunday. The
average condition of ninety-six points for
the grow'lng crop April 1 Is rather remark
able, and promises a large iel,l at harvest

Chicago, 111., April 3. Wheat was firm
the greater part ot the day on the export
business, but hroke sharply near the finish
on easy closing cables and a disappointing
llrndslrect's reiwrt, closing 'si lower for
Mnv. Mnv corn closed unchanged, May
oats l(,e lower and provisions nt declines,
The heavy export clearances of wheat
nnd Hour from Now York and Uattlmoro
yesterday Imparled considerable firmness
to wheat, which opened In good demnnd nt
the rate which was named us the nominal
value on Ihe curb on the day before. With
yesterday's himvy clearances, followed by
further exports to-day, the linitket be
came quite strong nnd some bearish mat
ters In the day news were forgotten for a
time. May started with plenty of buyers
at el"o and sellers at 65c, and a compro
mise was made at 5lti56c. The bulls, who
had sold out oil .Monday afternoon, not
wishing to take a risk oxer the holiday,
began lo luiv as soon ns they saw that
the price was not about to go nil to pieces.
The buying of that character started a
general upward movement. Which fright
ened those of the scnlpers who had been in
clined to work the short side. The prlco
rose to 65U.C by nbout 11 o'clock under the
good demand and limited olTorings. Paris
was reported closing 10 centimes lower for
Aprlt Hour and 10 centimes lower for tho
September-December term of wheat. Tho
closing cables and some disappointment
with the result or Itradstrcet's visible em
oted n weaker feeling to succeed the earl
ier bullishness, nnd the price dropped back
ngnln n round 55o for May. Tho world's
stocks decreased 2.33S.0OO bushels last week,
which was a disappointment, Inasmuch us
a falling oft to tho extent or l.oon.noo hush
els had been looked for by some of the
more Imagltmilve of the bull crowd. Tho
Illinois statu crop report was very bearish.
It remarked that flan.nire to wheat bv :111V
cause was so slight that no consideration
had been taken of It. and that the ctop
promises a large yield at narvcsi. ine
heaviness In the market which was Inau
gurated about noon increased during the
Inst hour. At the close the price was 5ISso
The corn market was Ilrm early owing to
the small receipts and a better demand for
light olTorings. Tho early firmness In
wheat was also an clement In the strength
displayed by corn. Tho receipts Inspected
since Thursday were only 110 cars and 110
nre the slender estimated receipts tor to
morrow. Primary market receipts since
Monday were 291, noo bushels compared with
I.22H.OW bushels on tho corresponding two
days of the year before. May opened un
changed nt 4iiijc, sold from 17c to 4C!,c and
closed at lCVic. The market broke with
wheat, but reacted at tho close on moderate
Oats followed the other markets In fluc
tuations ami experienced quite n good bus
iness. At tho start considerable strength
was noted nnd under n good demand from
shorts, created by the high prices, the feel
ing grew even stronger. Carrlnglon-Han-nah
took hold freely. Other buying was
scattered. Later on In the session, when
wheat and corn fell back, oats also took
a tumble, May sold trotn 29:c to 30',ic.
down to 23T;c, nt which price It was offered
at the close. Jnlv rnnged between 29fj29'o
bid and 2S?;ti 2S-,'ic closing at tho low
price. The trade In provisions was heavy, but
for a long time the market gave no Indi
cation ot the impending collapse, which re
vealed Itself near the end. The Cudnhy
Interests were said 1o lie against the mar
ket and early In the session Armour Sz
Co. were reported to be giving It some sjip
port. It broke, however, and broke badly.
.May pork opened nt tl2.52'... declined to
$12.45. then lose to $12 52i;. It held com
paratively steady mini within forty-tlvo
minutes of tho close, when a rapid decline
set In. which carried the price 01T to $12.10.
with S12.12I& the latest trading price, a S5o
loss. Lard and ribs noted ln a similar man
ner to pork nnd nt the close lard and rlha
were each 10c lower than on Monday. Hog
receipts to-day were 21.000.
