Now that the gift problem Is confronting you, why not let
us helD vou select something that will not only be appreciated,
but appropriate as well. , Friendship, as you know, can find no
- - more fitting expression than through a remembrance which
becomes a perpetual reminder of the giver's generosity. There
- fore let us suggest the gift, it need not necessarily be expen- .
sive, just so it possesses individuality and elegance, that de-
notes exclusiveness and good taste. 1

MORNING GRAIN LETTER.
Chicago, Dec. 17. Government re
ports only have light effect. Domestic
! cash demand has some life, but export
sales seem dull. Locals seem willing
to buy wheat on dips, but they will, not
hold for more than turns. ' It is .now a
i question of awaiting the turn In north
west receipts and Argentine export to
tals. Central Illinois is complaining as
never before over cars shortage, but
the real, corn run has .started; 1,200
cars of corn hav arrived at Chicago
in the past 48; hours.
Chicago December wheat is at an ex
port difference of Sl'cerrts below Liver
pool December. .
Bears in' oats will hav to wait an
other two or three weeks -on movement
statistics. Chicago cash' pats promise
to hold current leSl8 wtth ease. Con
tract oats are still 2 to 2Vs cents over
the December price. No. 1 northern
wheat here also figures 2Vz to 3 cents
above the December' wheat price.
Foster, under date of Dec. 21,., again
says this will be a mild winter. He
says an early January cold wave will
probably cause the'heaviest precipita
tion of the winter.-'
Butler county, in south central Kan
sas, reports Wheat 72 cents, new. corn
42 cents. Hog feeding not increased;
cattle feeding decreased.
In central Indiana new aorn is 38 to
40 cents. Farmers are holding corn
and banks are slow to make new loans.
Farmers saving pigs and cattle feeding
already gained 10 per cent in Iroquois
Ottuniwa, Iowa Three, counties, 10
per cent in hog and cattle feeding and
breeding; also new corn selling at 34
cents. . .
MORNING STOCK LETTER.
New York, Dec. 17. The London
market this morning is largely a nom
Newspaper comment contents itself
for the most part with a discussion of
the Reading decision, but the consen
sus of opinion seems-to be that the
company and other companies operat
ing on similar lines have in a large
measure won quite a substantial vic
tory. The government's hearings in the
suit to dissolve the ti'eel corporation
will resume today in Philadelphia.
We caution the most optimistic
against getting too bullish on the sharp
bulges. The market had a long decline
and suffered considerable liquidation.
It has had something of a natural re
covery, and, after .all. precedent has by
no means lost its value In Wall street.
