Iver prices ruled in all the grain pits on the board of trade Saturday. May wheat was taken by the larger houses in the trade. The market closed with losses of l 1-Sc for both the May and July. Sentiment was bearish not only for wheat, but for the other grains. There was a lack of buying power save on the soft spots, while there were rest ing orders on the selling side and the matter of prices was less of an object than was to be seen earlier in the week. There was no change in the spot market at Liverpool today with the effect of the weakness in Chicago on Friday offset by strength at Buenos Ayres, where the export call was re ported as quite urgent. There is no doubt as to wheher for eign countries are in need of bread stuff supplies from North America. They will take all the war risks nec essary in order to secure much need ed foodstuffs for their citizens and sol diers and the reply of the Pritish gov ernment points to the probability that there will be an attempt to make fo d stuffs contraband of war. War risk insurance rates continue to advance in price and the probabilities are that still higher prices will be seen. Corn and oats showed much weak ness during the first hour of the ses sion, which was followed by a good rally, but the strength was not fully maintained. Some of the pressure on the selling side of corn and oats came from hedging against weekly bids, but offerings were pretty well absorbed bv the commission houses. Shorts bo'ught both of these grains wherever a profit was in sight. Provisions were weak and sharply lower under increased offerings by longs and pressure on May pork from local bear traders. Considerable liqui dation took place on the decline. Shorts in po rk covered at the inside prices. The hog situation was de cidedly beari.-h. I ! I : I DCf K POI IT, Conn.

Your typist can reduce ihe cost of production by an L. C. Smith & Bros. Typewriter. This is not merely a theoretical claim, because we have proven it by records of specific cases where every key stroke was counted and recorded mechanically for a long period of time.
