The Price of Wheat.
It was said several days ago that Ar?
mour predicted dollar wheat for May.
This caused heavy buying by ''outsid?
ers " on Chicago market, aud the
downward turn of the market was
checked. Wheat had steadily declined
from 793, to 66 cts. for May. On the
prediction of Armour it reacted from
66 to 69^, and then declined to
The shipments from Russia and Arsen
tina have increased, and theie is more
wheat in sight in this country than at
the corresponding time last year. Re?
ceipts are also heavier than the same
time last year. The only things that
will make, wheat sell for one dollar p*-r
bushel is disaster to the growing crop
or a European war. With the ooodi
tions now existing May wheat will sell
in Chicago at 65 cts. per bushel. The
gentleman who predicted in our col?
umna in January, when wheat reached
19% and corn :19!, for May, that it was
the top for the present crops, seems to
have guessed right so far.

15th of April lay aside his pastoral
duties for six minths and devote his
emrgies to raising funds for thePresby

The trustees of this institution unani?
mously called Rev. Mr. Hyde to under?
take this work, in order that tho home
might pay off its debts and enlarge
its work, but the congregation refused
to accept the pastor's resignation. In?
stead, they allowed him six months to
ougage in tho work. Mr. Hyde s
health has hern quite bad, and it was
for this reason he decided to make the
