Liverpool, June 5. Wheat market
partially reflected the weakness n
America yesterday and opened 3-8
lower. Large American clearances and
expectations of large world's ship
ments this week had only a temporary
effect, and on the decline support was
in evidence. Following the opening
prices advanced 1-8 with a revival of
the demand from the continent for off
coast cargoes of Australian wheat and
the firmness in spot. The percentage
of the world's shipments to the United
Kingdom is expected to be small. Ad
vices from Russia are becoming more
bullish and European crop prospects
are less assuring. At 1:30 p. m. under,
tone was steady with prices 4 lower
Corn opened unchanged and later ad
vanced s to i with undertone firm.
Weakness in America and more liberal
Argentine shipments were offset by
scarcity of late offers for early ship
ment and great difficulty being experi
enced in covering sales with the firm
ness in spot stimulated shorts to cover.
Buenos Ayres helped the advance. At
1:30 p. m. prices were to 3i higher

OF THE GREAT niPEOVEMENTS and fine houses that have been built in Camp McClelland and
East Dlvenport in the past few years, does it not stand to reason that you will have the same chance of a
good advance in values at
as it is located and adjoins all of those fine houses on the east. It is only two and three blocks further up the
river, and there will be built just as fine homes at Riverside as any place in the city. I could mention the
nami of some of the best and wealthiest people of our city who have bought locations at Riverside and who
will build beautiful homes. Do not think that because this property is sold n easy payments that the
location and lots are not right. Remember, I am the original LOT MAN of the city, who has placed those
additions at terms and prices that enable the good men with small means and small salaries to buy pro
perty. And my former deals have enabled me to give the people the same, proposition of easy terms on
this high-class real estate.
JUST AN INSTANCE OF INCREASE IN VALUE A professional man of our city some three
years ago bought a river front lot in East Davenport for $4000.00; states that he has been offered $12,000
for it. So do not be afraid to take a chance at RIVERSIDE. Any man will tell you who has money today
that he got it by taking a chance; he bought something it is the only way and real estate that is lo
cated right is a safe, sure and easy way. - -

"Why DM I Mot Buy a Lot at MlveFsIde?"
To go to Riverside take a Bettendorf car. Salesmen will be on the addition to show you around; also
all lots will be tagged as to lot number and price, and to secure a lot pull up the price tag and take it to the
office on the addition.

June corn movement should be over
by June 15. East has only small corn
Southern Illinois, southern Indiana
and Missouri, along with 12 southern
states, are still very dry.
Theories of old corn scarcity are resilient.
If the new corn crop makes great
progress June 15 to 30, corn might
break in early July, but the old corn
crop months promise to repeat 1912
when they rebounded with great en
ergy. Corn and oats Invite the attention of
that the most marvelous prospect op
ened before us.
