far as we now, taking care of the
public in a manner that is satisfactory
to all business men, as a rule. It has
necessitated a good deal of explana
tion to those patrons of foreign birth
who do not understand the ways and
very little of the language of the
country. The local wheat market has
been closed up simply because the
coast market is also closed. While
wheat has not been materially lowered
in price the dealers are simply not
buying for the reason that they have,
been rnable to realize on shipments
already made and, therefore, have
no funds with which to pay for wheat
if they were in the market for it.
