Fair tonight and probably Saturday, slightly warmer tonight.
Showers In Florida and on the coast
of North Carolina have resulted from
the southern area of low pressure, the
center of which Is apparently over tbo
eastern portion of the Gulf of Mexico.
Hitch pressures and generally clear
skies prevail, from the Missouri and
Mississippi valleys to the middle At
lantic states and New England, with
the greatest air pressure In the cen
tral valleys. Frosts hare again been
quite general in the lake region. The
western area of low pressure which Is
central over British Columbia, is at
tended by rain on the PacSflc coast
and by a further rise In temperature
as far eastward as the Mississippi
valley. Because of the slow move
ment of the blerh and the effect of the
western low, fair weather Is indicated
for this vicinity tonight and probably
with slightly warmer to- Seattle 64 44 .20

THE GRAIN MARKET.
Liverpool, May 6. Owing to the un
expected firmness in America yester-
i day and the closing firmness In Bnenos
Aires, shorts covered at the opening
and value were "4 to higher, with
j the principal support in May. Receipts
for three days were light and there was
an improved demand for spot, with
speculators buying on the light ship
ments from India this week, and also !
the light Argentine shipments to the j
Vnited Kingdom. I-ater it further ad
vanced on the unfavorable reports
from Russia and the buying by the
kingdom of distant Australian cargoes
which are firmly held at 1 advance.
There was general support to the mar
ket with shorts and prominent Inter
ests buying. Some realizing resulted
in a small decline, but at 1:30 p. m.
th market was strong and 7s to 1
I penny higher.
Corn was affected by the firmness in
wheat, and higher, with support at
tributed to the firmness of second
hand American offers.
