"Th 1914 wheat crop of the United
States was estimated to bo 891,000.000
bushels," the statement said. "Tho
estimated surplus carried over from
the 1913 crop was about 76,000,000
bushels, making a total available sup

fore, ?10,000,000 should supply tho
normal domestic demand. This would
leave a surplus of 357,000,000 bushels.
"Of this surplus about 210,000,000
bushels were exported by January 30.

source there will be available 100,006,
