Under the stimulus of lower cables and heavy world's .shipments the bears started in to hammer the market on the cuib and managed to open the market down %c for both options. Some short cover ing at the decline, with a little commis sion house buying, caused a fair reac tion of %c. but the advance was met with very free selling of both long and short wheat, principally the latter. The market broke sharply over a cent before there was enough buying to check the de cline. On this break there was some buy ing against puts and a little covering which carried prices up to within a frac tion of the opening figure, the market be coming very dull after this last rally and prices moved within a narrow range for the rest of the session. The principal pit feature was the selling of July wheat, which at one time was at 4' 4 r discount under the May option. Elevators were the best sellers of this option, although the pit crowd was more inclined to sell July than any other option. At 4V»c dis count quite a little wheat changed hands among the elevator Interests, buying the July and selling the May, considerable of it being spreads which were being closed out. The crowd is still very bear ish, but not inclined to press the selling of short wheat on this break, preferring to wait for a fair rally before putting out another line. The close was Just steady at a cent under Saturday's closing for May and H4c under for July. Receipts were again liberal, the cash demand being rather slow on the whole. No. 1 northern sold well at around Sc over May. with No. 2 northern selling at 2@3c under, the rest of the wheat of fered going out very slow. Chicago, St. Louts and Kansas City reported a very poor cash market, buyers not being in clined to take anything except at about their own price. May wheat opened %<fi%c lower at $l.lin 8 . worked back to $110%, reacted to $1.09%. and gradually worked up to $1.10, closing at $email@example.com.

The domestic visible supply decreased 108, --000 bu. against an Increase of 539.000 a year ago. This, following some falling oft In exports and increase In receipts, shows that one of the most important bull fac tors In the market is our enormous home consumption of corn. The west is re ported as offering very little corn; the weather is wet and on dry days there will be farm work to attend to. Think it only a question of time when all months will be in good demand around 60c again, and would favor making trades with such a course of the market in view. Chicago—l return still bearish on all wheat but May. There will be sharp bulges in July wheat at times and pos sibly that option and September may be low enough for the moment, but even that is doubtful, and I would still prefer waiting for bulges to sell on than to buy for anything but scalps. Bulges In July wheat we will get. When we do get them and September sympathizes, as It will to some extent, sell the September without hesitation or fear for a long pull and sell the July with stop orders. St. Louis —To give you some Idea of the cash wheat situation. OBt of our largest cash handlers sent out offers to 531 mills Saturday night offering cash wheat at lowest prices since last August and did not get a single order.

Nebraska Elevator company says their stations in southern Nebraska and northern Kansas all report same condition as Prof. Bruner reports. While wheat looks well, they all have well defined Indications of the presence of fly, which will develop more definitely as the weather warms up. Chicago—As some questions are being asked relative to the Argentine crop, it may be well to state that corn is planted In September and October In some sec tions, occasionally as early as August, and sometimes planted as late as Janu ary- I* 1» generally ready for harvesting the last half of March and the corn ship ping months are May.

Kansas City—Several large export sales of flour made here for July-August ship ment on a basis of 80c for the wheat in July.
