CHICAGO. Feb. 13.-Cuts In the prlco of
flour acted a the last straw today In
breaking tho cost of wheat. The grain,
though steady at the close, ranged from
Ho to P,4c down. Corn finished 14u to
lViifflHc of: oats cheaper, 4c to sctiic
and privlslons less expensive by 15o to
Bvldence of tho overloaded condition of
tho flour trade formed the principal
cnuse of a drop of 44c In No. 2 red wheat
at Toledo. For a similar reason cash
wheat elsewhere, too, headed down
grade, although not to such a decldol ex
tent. The mllln were said to have been
turning out Hour at practically their .full
capacity, but hud fulled to find buyers
of late. Offerings, 30c to '60c a barrel un
der public quotations, It wns declared
wcro now tho rule.
Wheat here sagged from tho start,
and closed at nearly the lowest figures
of the day. Rains throughout India, and
big shipments from Argentina with mild
weather and liberal primary arrivals In
tho United States, all had nil effect In
turning sentiment to the "Bear side.
Notwithstanding generous export busl
ne6s at tho seaboard, corn turned weak,
chiefly because of tho bfg receipts. Ar
gentina crop estimates wcro enlarged,
and renewed attention was given to the
domestic shortage of cattlo and hogs.
Sellers of oats were unuBUnlly aggressive.
There was u prospect thaT farm reserves
March 1 would make a remarkable bIiow
ing against tho bulls.
Provisions suffered a sharp setback In
consequence of largo sales by longs.
Heavy holdings of pork, lard and ribs
tumbled slmultivsUoUHly Into tho pit, and
found no adequate support.

CATTLE Cattlo receipts were mod
erate today, only 120 cars being reported
In, but still this was a ralr run for a
Thuisday, Tho total for tho week to dato
foots up tho largest for any similar period
since three weeks ago, but Is only on a
par with tho corresponding days at .a year
, Tho 'market on beef steers opened curly
and with tho demand on the part of
flackers quite urgent. ICvcryono was put
n tho yards early In tho morning and tha
cattlo moved freely, so that practically
ovcrythlnR was sold by 10 o'clock or very
soon after. The prices paid wcro strong
to lOo higher than yesterday and fully
2.o higher than last week's close. Onu
small bunch of cattle sold up ns high as
18.26, the highest pticn wild since January
V, when, J8.30 wiis paid, that price being
the highest for tho year to date.
What has been said regarding beef
stoers would apply equally well to cows
and heifers and they, too, woro strong
to as much as 10c higher In spots und
26o higher than a week ago.
Stock cattlo nnd feeders wero In good
domand and commanded strong prices,
Tho market on that kind of cattle was
already very high to begin with, hut
still It has been strong every day this

Shippers started out early this morning
and continued buying all through the ses
sion, their purchases being at about the
tamo prices as yesterday. Packers wore
moio leisurely In getting out, but their
first bids wore about steady. Beforo
many hogs could be sold at their fig
ures, however, values began to weaken.
and tho balance of tho trado was slow
and druggy, with light and butcher
wi-lghtB selling about steady und the
heavy offerings from weak to a much
as a nickel lower. In other words, uny-
