The price.; on nccr i t i s have in created to twii-o their regular value in tho past four month. The Kieat question in G rmany at present is how they are to -t their breadstul fs. It is roughly estimated that ."', per cnt of the vh at ustd in ; rinany is im ported. It was to he expected that what and flour would greatly in cr:.'iSf in price. Wheat wa.s uwoted on tho Rerhn market on October at $K l.S mt metric ton.

Tho ( It rman government has passed a series of legislative measures hav ing as their object tho conserving of the local grain supply.

The meat supply in Germany is re garded to bo as a whole sufficient for its needs during tho war. The Prus sian ministry lias reduced the time re quired for quarantine on living cattle from four weeks to ten days. The last swine census of Germany, that of June 1, l'.l4, .shows that there were 25. 2T1.oo head of hogs in Germany, as compared with 2l,S2l,oOo in The position of Germany, a.s far as cattle is concerned, is not considered quite favorable as tho position in regard to hogs.
