GRAIN- WHEAT — On the idea that crop conditions
In the Western belt were not so bad as bulls were
willing to have, the trade believe on Tuesday, the
wheat market broke a cent per bushel to-day and
closed a little shove th» lowest point. Efforts were.
made to work up a little bull enthusiasm over com
plaints of too much rain In Southern Kansas and
Missouri, a* well as in parts of the Northwest, but
he mood of traders was more bearish in view of the
fact that short transactions were pretty well reduced
on Tuesday, leaving the market supplied with a rather
liberal long account. Not only did domestic crop
news have a. better trend, but more favorable reports
ere also received from the Danube districts, where
good rains have fallen, and from France. Germany
an.l the Argentine The Liverpool market was af
fected by these satisfactory foreign reports and made
practically rio response to the advance on this side
Tuepday. closing but i» 'a \ d net higher. In the way
of statistics conditions were pretty well balanced, as
while Northwest receipts were light and the Minne
apolis stock lost 300.000 bush In th« last four days,
the world's visible supply reduction as reported by
Pradstreet's. was only 2.303.000 bush, compared
with a decrease last year of fi.2R."i,000 bush. Seaboard
clearances were much larger, acerbating 545,000
bush of wheat and flour. As a part of the bearish
gossip from St Louis It was pointed out that In the
last nine days that market has received 499.000 bush
of wheat, compared with 122.000 bush In the corre
sponding time last year. The export business con
sisted of six loads In New York cash wheat was
rather easy, closing or. the basis of $1 04 for No 2
red In elevator and $1 01*; fob afloat; No 1 North
ern Duluth. $1 19. and No 2 hard winter, $1 12H fob
afloat. CORN — The bull leaders maintained their grip
on May corn at Chicago, which sold at Sic. thereby
establishing a new high record. In sympathy, the
July contract advanced Sc and September a similar
amount, followed near the close by a sharp reaction,
which left these positions practically unchanged from
the previous night, while May closed li»c net higher.
The outstanding short Interest in May was believed
to be large enough to make possible almost any price,
for that delivery, although It was thought probable
that the bull leaders would not attempt to bring about
any sensationally high figures There was a fair
movement nt Chicago and predictions for large ar
rivals on Thursday, but It seemed to make no Im
pression on May. which ruled strong all day up to
th» last few minutes. At all interior points the ar
rivals Mere 2fiO.flO<l bUFh ahead of last year. Reports
of large settlements by shorts were current, but could
rot b« confirmed. As a result of more, favorable
weather It was said that planting was quite, general
in Illinois, and active farm work was In progress

These bonds are a portion of an issue of $400,000 First Mortgage bonds ($50,000 having been sold for
$50,000, net to the Company, at private sale), all of which are Secured by First Mortgage on the Brevoort Build
ing, located at the corners of Fulton Street, Bedford Avenue and Brevoort Place, City of New York, Borough of
Brooklyn, said corner being one of the Most Prominent and Valuable Business Properties in the City of Brooklyn,
with its 1,500,000 population, and valued at exceeding $600,000. with improvements. The bonds are issued by the
BROOKLYN-BREVOORT COMPANY, a corporation under New York State laws, with capital of $250,000, fully paid.
These bonds are offered as an unshrinkable income-bearing investment.
The Brevoort Building is a massive, well constructed Business and Apartment
Hotel Property, located at the corner of Fulton Street (the most prominent Business
Street in Brooklyn), Bedford Avenge, (the most important Driveway— the Fifth
Avenue" of Brooklyn) and Brevoort Place (one of the Most Exclusive residence
places). The building covers an area of about 11,000 sq. ft. and contains ten stones,
including basement and sub-basement. The lower floors are to be used for restaurant
and business purposes: the six upper floors contain 53 apartments. With some im
provement it will produce in rentals an income of more than double the interest
charts on the bonds. The bonds are issued to retire ■ loan, improve the property
(with the probable further addition of two more stories and a roof garden), at a cost
of $100,000, and supply working capital to operate high-class restaurant, etc. The
bonds are issued in denominations of $100 and $1,000 each are coupon bonds. £*

Chicago May 27.— The grain markets on the local
exchange' were Irregular to-day, the May delivery
being strong and more distant options weak. A
new high record mark for the present May option
in corn was made at 81. At the close May corn was
lHc higher, with July unchanged. heat for July
delivery was off »jc. oats were *C higher. Pro
visions were 2ijc higher.
The wheat market opened weak, because of the
failure of European markets to respond to yester
day's advance here. Shorts In th. May delivery
took advantage of the small decline, and began to
cover freely which caused th« price of that option
to advance from $1 04 to $1 06 within the first fifteen
minute?. Other deliveries, however, were affected
but slightly during the first half of the day by the
strength of May. Later the market became
strong, because of the bulge In com for May. At
the close the May option was strong and other
deliveries about steady. July opened V* to * 8 c
lower at 92.c to 92^c. sold at S>:*»c. and then de
clined to 914 c. Th* close was at S2c. May »old
between $104 and $106^, and closed at the high
point Clearances of wheat and flour were equal
to 646.300 bushels. The world's visible supply, as
shown by Bradstreefs. decreased C.300.000 busheiS.
Primary receipts were 412,000 bushels, agaln3t &*.
000 bushels on the same day last year. Minne
apolis. Duluth and Chicago reported receipts of
199 cars, against 149 cars last week and 238 cars a.
year ago.
Corn was weak early In the day on selling by
longs, but later rallied sharply on active covering
by short* The market in the latter half of the
day was governed mainly by the congestion In
the May delivery, which resulted in an advance of
that option to Sic a new high price for the year.
A forecast of more rain in the corn belt was re
sponsible for the strength. The market closed
strong. July opened Vie and %c to l ie and He
lower, at 6Sc to 68»*c. sold off to 67» 4 c. and then ad
vanced to 69c and CH-jc The close was at to\n
and 68^»c. May opened He higher, at 79c, sold up
to Sic. and closed at 80.'. Local receipts were 381
cars, with 318 of contract grade.
Oats were weak at the opening, in sympathy with
other grain, but rallied on "green bug" reports In
Illinois and Indiana. July opened He lower, at
47^c sold at 47* 4 c and then advanced to 4S^c.
The close was at 48%,.-. May sold between 6&» 4 c
and 56i.,c. and closed at 56V Local receipts wens
Provisions were easy early in the day. but rallied
later along with grain. At the close July por<
was up y-sc at $13 7%- Lard and ribs were, each
up 2i a c at $8 571* and $7*5. respectively.
Estimated receipts for to-morrow: Wheat, 23
cars; corn, 457 cars; oats. 120 cars; hogs. 26.000 head.
