Talmage's Rice Report.
Demand for the week has been
active at the sharp ad vance not
ed past two weeks. Japan sorts
are active request, but transac
tions are limited, account of re
stricted pfferingas hence, the
activity noted has been centered
more particularly on the Hon.
duras styles and the movement
has been large, the market clos
ing firm at quite an item above
last week. As previously noted,
this market, while it has respond.
ed freely to the advance, is favor
ed by orders from territory
usually drawing suipplies at the
South, as prices. at the moment
are relatively lower here that at
primary points. Advices form
the South note active demand on
he Atlantic Coast. At New Or-.
leans, the demand is brisk at the
advance, with an enlarged en
quiry form the North and West.
This is a strong factor in the
situation, for if The demand was
purely speculaltive (like swapov
ing jack knives amouig the de
alers. leaving the knife yet to be
sold at the last) there would
still be the burden on the market,
but as indicated, later, transac
tions are mainly for consump
tive requirements, and as such
a sustaining factor. In the In
terior-Southwest Louisiana and
Tezast-there are reports of ad
ditional mills closing down. The
growing crop has met' with
unusual drawkacl.s, on account
of untoward weather preventing
ploughing and seeding. It is
estimanted that not over thirty
percent of last year's acreage
has been planted, and the growth
so tardy that harvest will be
form thirty to sixty'days late.
