Wheat market opened dull but steady, with some sup port, and prices nnchaned to H high er, and following the opening there was a further advance ot to 1 4. with the strength in March. Unfavorable harvesting returns from Argentine and less favorable reports from Australia wore the factors. These were aug mented by firmer and fewer Manitoba offers for distant shipment, closing steadiness in Buenos Aires and de creasing stocks here. At 1:30 p. ra the market was dull but steady, with a steady undertone and prices J. higher. Corn opened unchanged to 3i lower, and further deel:ned 'j to with the undertone easy. The cheaper plate here, favorable crop outlook in Argen tine, talk of larger world's shipments this wek helped the decline. At 1:30 prices were to a lower than yes- torday. Morning Grain Letter.

The retail price of fresh eggs in Rock Island still remains at 37"-s cents i per dozen, while cold storage eggs of; about eight or nine months are selling! at cents per. This price on eggs j has been, at about the same figure forj the past couple of months, and there i seems no possible chance of any re-1 duction for some time to come. A re- cent report sent out from Chicago con-1 cerning the egg industry states that j the price of eggs is controlled by a ! trust; this includes fresh and cold! storage eggs. It is said that a gigantic I monopoly now exists on eges. and un- j less the trust can be boycotted by a j refusal to tat eggs until the price is) lowered, there is apt to bo no decline, j Another report concerning eggs sent out from Lawrence, Kan., states that j eggs when frozen may be kept for an j indefinite number of years, thus effect- j ins an enormous saving in prices. A i test has been made in Kansas regard-! rag this theory and has proven sue- j cessful. i The prices on other much-consumed j products also remain at about the j same figure, fresh creamery butter sell-j ing at S" cents per pound; dairy but-j ter retails at 32'i cents, potatoes at j j $1 per bushel, and sweet potatoes at , ! '- cents per pock. I I j " v 1 l W1KL, iPARKi li!
