New York, May S. Tho trading on the
Stock exchango to-day was unusually
heavy, but tho speculation was mora uu
eettled than for some time past. Although
the llrnt pilcts made wero generally high,
er. the market toon lost Its strength.
Sugar and the grangers showed most
weakness. The reactionary tendeucy was
ilue to sales made to realize some of tho
profits of the advance, which lias been par
ticipated lu by nearly every stock upon tha
Hat There was coma little selling for the
short account, but the bear operators were
iiulck to cover upon Indications of a rally.
Reactions and rallies followed each other
In aulck succession and at noon the deal
lngs had assumed a steady tone, gradually
becoming btrong and continuing to ad.
vance during tho two hours following mid
day. After delivery hour there was a re
newal of the realizations and under the
leadership of tho grangers and Sugar, a
decline set In which continued to the
close, the market being decidedly weak
at the tlnlsh. . ., . . ,.

b'or the first time In several weeks t'ard
rl.Ige Tttesihiy renpiienred In the Chicago
wheat market. Ills hotio was a very roti
sldorahle seller of July enrlv before the
advance. The gossip was that Pardrldge
had turne.1 nsjets into about J.W,.W oush
and would begin n new campaign.

Prime, In his crop bulletin yesterday,
says: "We nro still enjoying beautiful
wen titer, and report from the easteltt
bonier of Kansas say rye Is heading.
Wheat Will head the latter part ut this
Week. If pro.ipecls keep up in the present
grade from one-half to three.foliiths of
the crop will be laid by by (ho lath of
June. Home com has been cultivated once
nnd some twice."
The general assumption l Hint Armour's
long line of wheat has within a ek been
greatly reduced, says a Chicago telegram.
It Is not believed, though. It Is entirely
liquidated. It ! ihnlit.hl lifn v.illln. Impnn
around file nnd continued on up to the top
"tld flown. It Is accepted that the Kent
line la liquidated. The Impotlnnt butl who
sold out to advantage have planned to get
Into the market again mound nnc. Tho up
permost question now In a speculative way
Is will the July get Kick to COc, and It it
does will the men who made money from
C; to fcc go In again?
L. n. Young, of Hutchinson, Kas., writes
T. J. Templer: ".Mr. .MeCirew tells me
this morning that he has In the past few
days driven through the cyclone district,
from Burrton to HuNtend. and also north
to .Mound litdge, making a drive of about
fifty miles. Ho thinks not more than 23
per cent of the wheat has been plowed up.
Thnt now standing appears since tho rain
(o be a tood stand, nnd has excellent
prospects for a crop. The area last fall
wns largpr than usual, and Mr. Meflr. w
tells me that In his opinion llnrvey county
hns a chance for a full average crop."
The MIsourl weekly weather bulletin
says: "Tho drouth in the central and
northwest serllons has heen broken by
good rains; over most of the southeast sec
tion the weather continues dry nnd at the
close of the week wheat, oats nnd grail
were still suffering for rain In a number
of southern counties. Water is still scarce
In some localities. Chinch bugs nre doing
much damage to wheat In a number of tho
central and western counties nml a lew
lields have been plowed up. Considerable
damage bv Hessian lly Is leported In some
of the southeastern counties. Onts are now
generallv doing well, except In those dis
tricts where drouth still prevails. Corn,
as a rule. Is coming up well, and In tho
central and southern sections many lields
have been plowed over the first time. Cut
worms are doing much damage In some
counties, especially on tho sod ground.
Potatoes are generally reported as doing
well. Meadows and pastures have been
greatly improved by the rains and warm
weather, but In many counties more rain Is
needed. The hay crop will bo short In a
number of the northern counties. The con
dition of wheat U S7. ngaln-t S3 n month
ago and !H a year ago. Tho area Is re
ported to be 9 per cent les than last year.
13 T. Alliens, of Paola. Kas., In writing
to W. W. Cownn under date of May 7,
says: "Those farmers nnd cattle dealers
who get over the country pretty well, nil
snv Kiev never saw such farm prospects
In Miami cotintv as at tins nine, we uave
hud plentv of tain and are having a good
shower now. The ehinehbugs In sin h
weather nre not 'In it.' All vegetation Is
growing fast. The season Is fully two
weeks ahend and we must have an early
harvest of wheat and oais. No one ever
saw a'TTeTter stand of corn than we have
now. Some of It has been cultivated twice
nl ready. If things keep growing the way
they nro now a half to three-fourths of
the crop will bo laid by by the middle of
June. I'armers on this advance are bring
ing In wheat nml corn niraln. I-Veders not
having much confidence In cattle and hogs
are letting thim go freely. Many feeders
have some wheat and corn left and are
putting both on the market. Tho millers
hero are grilling homo wheat again.
Farmers as a rule have a good many oats
still on hand. They are selling corn nml
feeding oats, flrass Is excellent. There
will be no mora wheat fed lu this county.
I enn assure you. Cottonseed meal has
taken the place of wheat and It has come
to stay. It Is ti rapid fnttenor, and mixed
with corn makes n splendid feed."
