FOR REAL ESTATE
W. LOWENBERG & SON,
Over Bremhorst's Grocery, oorner
Court and Second Streets.
They have the Bargains in farm
and city property. Yes we have large
and well improved farms northeast of
the city to sell right.
The reason we always give satis
faction to our customers is because
we have a large list of all kinds of
property, and always sell them what
they want. If it is a vacant lot, cot
tage or a nice residence in the city,
small farms close to the city, grain
farms stock farms or unimproved
farms. Then they can buy, so if they
want to sell in the future they can
sell at a profit.

Cassidy & Gray's Market Letter.
WHEAT—A few rains were report
ed through the southwest, but wens
hardly sufficient to overcome the light
spring wheat receipts in the northwest
so that with offerings light and com
mission houses buying, tile crowd fol
lowed and bid the futures up, May ad
vancing the most, at one time display
ing tightness. There was practically
no wheat pressing on the market.
Liverpool and Berlin were quite strong
and a number of local shorts covered,
but with dullness developing the pit
crowd sold and wero responsible for
the late weakness. Foreign markets
will all be closed after tomorrow un
til the following Tuesday, consequent
ly operations will partake largely
a holiday character that should allow
of good turns being made in a scalping
CORN—There was some selling by
commission houses and local operators
early and everybody was fixed for a
good sized break, but country offerings
dried up and this started shorts to
covering with the clpsing strong. Wo
feel friendly to this cereal on all dips.
OA"£S—There was some selling on
country advices of larger shipments
this way, but offerings were well taken
and there was good buying of tho
September kind, especially by the Pat
ten house. At the close the under
tone was quite firm.
PROVISIONS—Large receipts of
hogs through the west with the ship
ping demand very poor, brought about
selling by the packers and tljere was
May liquidation. Shorts covered quite
freely, and there was liberal buying
of pork on resting orders for outsid-j
account but the situation is still bear
ish, the undertone is heavy and lower
prices are indicated.
