This involves a 'inilnr shritikajre in the selling value of ncarlj all the wheat in the civilized world, aud thu- becomes an impor tant change. T'h lose to holders of whc.it in this et H very great, yet thete liavehecu no lailures, for the reason that tin parties on the "long' side .ire among the leading capitalists and al'le to calml., meet losses which would -vi amp an ordinary business 1112'J. Ihr Xew Yo.-k market seems very raip'j deprest-ed, the chief cause nu de, tuod to be l!:o fact that a good deal of the wheat there is in a critical coalition Owing to the damp woAihcr which has prevailed during ai d -nice the harvest of 1875,the wheat h 1-, h..d no opportunity to dry out, as in otdlimry year, and the hot weather win h h.is prevailedoii tbo seaboard lor the moet pnrt, bias- culminated the ell'edhof tlie dlmii provious to tho slrprnput to that point. The Euro pean demand has fallen off and Xew York, with less than 1.000,000 bushels o. giain in store, is not as capable of taking care of it as Chicago would bo with 13,000,000 in store, as her capaci ty exceeds that amount. It is hoped that the excitement there is greater than is warranted by the facts in tho case, but the existence of it rcact3 for cibly on tho Chicago market. Fair spring whoflt sells in Xew York for 1.00 per bushel, but people hold off afraid to buy; the low price, which would othorwisc be a powerful in ducement, being no temptation to purchase wheat which may be spoiled when delivered. The only redeeming featuro for the future ot the whole situation is the cheapness of freights. Grain is trans ported at very nearly the minimum price at which the carrier can earn a living. It only remains to abolish some of tho transfer extortions to complete the question of cheap ttans portation, until better and increased facilities for carrying the products of west are procured. Western Jlural. L BcndbkWord aboatlnsrsashig Area cf Crops. The Kansas Agriculturist has the following to say rcgat ding plans for increasing tho acreage of crops: 'We believe with the most sanguine la our soil, climate aud seasons for successful wheat raising, and further, that the year is not far distant when this Slate will slnud high up, if not at the lop, to to speak, of all the wheat growing districts, with perhaps the single exception of California, but while wo bolicve this, we want at this Xtitnc to encourage this increase in acreage by easy degrees, and by all means avoid this attempt at one great stride. Let every farmer that can, increase this year over tho last, but do it grad ually, don't try too much, don't make tho wheat crop tho one to depend up on. Keep all the other crops going; hoop a good variety of them, then you will not be disappointed with tho ono oi tho other if for any reason cither should prove short or an entire loss. "Wo say to the present farmers, don't be turned 'from your present, steady, forward, increasing and grow ing prospcri I, by the words in the surrounding of great things that may ijjo done if only a great effort is made plant -all that can possibly be. Let your own judgmeut dictate and point out, and it you can increase your next crop twenty to -ftfriy per cent., do it, and iu doing it, take great pains to do J it thoroughly and well; get it planted i early enough to give it strength to -withstand tho winter trial, aud you will .havo made your crop almost surclv.' Pickling CucoaborB. Some of our readers may want to know how to pickle cucumbers, snd the following from the Grocer may be of use to them at this season : For pickling purposes tho cucum ber in all stages of its growth is used, from the largo vegetable, which is cut into slices and sold to tho cheap gro cery stores, to the smallest size or gher kin, which is preserved entire. In buying, soiling aud estimating quali ties, cucumbers, whethor large or small, are counted, not measured. Tho farmers sort tho cucumbers into thrco sizes, small, medium and largo; tho factories havo fivo sizes, viz., very small, small, medium, largo and very large. Of theso different sizes, 3,000 of the very small would till an ordin ary whisky barrel; 3,000 of the small ; 2,000 of the medium; 1,100 of the large, and 800 ot tho very large. The cucumbors, on being picked at their place of growth, arc taken by the far mers to the salting-houses, whence they arc removed to pickle factories. Most of tho salting-houses are within a few miles of where the plant is grown, as the fresh crop will not bear long transportation. Although some farmers do their own .salting, iu most cases the latter is a separate business, conducted on a large scale, the manu facturers buying of the saltcrs. The pickles, on being taken from the brine, arc "freshened up," that is, they are put into largo wooden vats containing lrcsh water, to extract the salt. ThN water is changed thtce times during tho freshing process, after which the cucumbers are packed iu casks or bot tles for sale. The best vinegar in use for pickling iu this country is that made from the western high wines. In a vinegar made from wood the pickles soon become toft, and even cider vin egar, though the best aud most whole some for table purposes, will not pre serve pickles more than a mouth. All tho artificial vinegars made from acids fail iu this lespcct, and from vitriol especially. Cucumbers pickled in high wine vinegar will keep for an almost indefinite lime, and will come out as good as at fust, after an interval of sev eral years. Large quantities of very fine cucumbers and cauliflowers arc imported from Holland, which coun try likewise supplies the London mar ket. The pickles which arc thus im ported extensively into this country hac the advantago of low price8, due to tho chcapucss of labor abroad, and, iu addition to the best possible sam ple, with tho least amount of trouble at the factory. With the requisite amount of care and attention, we can, in this country, make as good a pickle as can be mado in London. The Grain Market. Within the past few days prices of wheat have touched the lowcit point for the crop 0&1873. Yet the export demand continues depressed, as there are no indications of Europe wanting an extra supply, even if as much as last year, all hope of an increased de mand, because of the war in the cast, hating long been abandoned. The crops iu the old world promise to bo large, and, in consequence, the mar kets there arc declining. Tho crops throughout the Western States are also in a condition favorable to a large yield, and those who have taken stock in the rumors of damage arc now pay ing dearly for it. One reason why the maikct has taken so sudden a down ward turn duting the late warm weather is that on account of the wet harvest last year tho wheat contained more moisture than usual. Many pre dicted months ago that it would not keep, ct there were plenty who bought it aud shipped it here to be stored, or warehoused it iu the west ern citics,auduowrit has to he shipped to make room and prepare for the new crop. It is said that tho losses on the sales i eceutly made here have been very heavy, aud that much of tho wheat sold within two weeks past has only brought just about what it cost in western citios. In sympathy with the dcclino in wheat and with the ad ditional light demand, prices of all other corcals, as well as flour, have dccliued to n point that leaves no margin of profit after freight charges and commissions arc deducted, but rather leaves a serious loss. In 1870 now wheat opened higher than old was selling at, and this, it is hoped, may be the case this year, as the sup ply of old is far above the average at this season, and much of it in doubt ful condition. At present the market seems to be declining because of its own inherent weakness. The low price of corn and the high prices of pork, as well as all hog products, will, doubtless, lead to a large portion of this season's crop of corn being fed to hogs, thus increasing the number raised and possibly having tho effect later on of l cduciug prices of hog pro ducts. j-lj?jcr:ca;j Grocer. Pare Seed. The importance of pure seed to wheat growers cannot be too forcibly impressed upon their minds. Pure seed means manv mote cents on the bushel in tho pi ice they receive for their crop, and no effort should be left untried to secure this es-ciitial to suc cessful wheat cultuic. Many fields wo have seen this year that arc full of promise so f.ir as regards an enormous yield, arc virtually damned by the rye that presents itself in such quantities. Several of our exchauges arc comment ing upon this fact in different parts of the State, and our farmers should heed the advice. Cut the rye out of your wheat at least, f it is all you can do uow, but next fall sow none that is not absolutely a pure article, free from all spurious grain. This can be effect ed easily there will bo good seed in the market take no other. Ex. Crop Prospects in Ohio. The following is taken from the Ohio Farmer of July 8th : 'Duriuga recent trip through North ern :iud Central Ohio, wu obscned very few good fields of wheat. Most of it is thiu on the ground, and "pachy," but has headed well and will produce, generally, a fine grain. Corn is backward, showing late plauting. It stands well, however, aud a favor able season will produce a large crop. Some fields in Wyandotte county wcro as line as could be desired. Tho soil in this county is said to excel for corn, aud indeed for most other crops. Grass promises an abundant crop in most localities. Fruit, except apples, is comparatively scarce, aud in many apple orchards we noticed plenty of trees with little or no fruit on them. Stark county lcports an excellent wheat crop." A boy's newspaper iu Indianapolis is two ccuts ayear, and anybody send ing three names and thirty cents will receive a set of "jackstones." MISCELLANEOUS. GROCERIES.
