American stocks in London easy and one-eighth to one-half lower. Liverpool Situation. Liverpool, June 5. Wheat market partially reflected the weakness n America yesterday and opened 3-8 lower. Large American clearances and expectations of large world's ship ments this week had only a temporary effect, and on the decline support was in evidence. Following the opening prices advanced 1-8 with a revival of the demand from the continent for off coast cargoes of Australian wheat and the firmness in spot. The percentage of the world's shipments to the United Kingdom is expected to be small. Ad vices from Russia are becoming more bullish and European crop prospects are less assuring. At 1:30 p. m. under, tone was steady with prices 4 lower than yesterday. Corn opened unchanged and later ad vanced s to i with undertone firm. Weakness in America and more liberal Argentine shipments were offset by scarcity of late offers for early ship ment and great difficulty being experi enced in covering sales with the firm ness in spot stimulated shorts to cover. Buenos Ayres helped the advance. At 1:30 p. m. prices were to 3i higher than yesterday. Drift of the Weather.

T1HIIMM OF THE GREAT niPEOVEMENTS and fine houses that have been built in Camp McClelland and East Dlvenport in the past few years, does it not stand to reason that you will have the same chance of a good advance in values at ffl as it is located and adjoins all of those fine houses on the east. It is only two and three blocks further up the river, and there will be built just as fine homes at Riverside as any place in the city. I could mention the nami of some of the best and wealthiest people of our city who have bought locations at Riverside and who will build beautiful homes. Do not think that because this property is sold n easy payments that the location and lots are not right. Remember, I am the original LOT MAN of the city, who has placed those additions at terms and prices that enable the good men with small means and small salaries to buy pro perty. And my former deals have enabled me to give the people the same, proposition of easy terms on this high-class real estate. JUST AN INSTANCE OF INCREASE IN VALUE A professional man of our city some three years ago bought a river front lot in East Davenport for $4000.00; states that he has been offered $12,000 for it. So do not be afraid to take a chance at RIVERSIDE. Any man will tell you who has money today that he got it by taking a chance; he bought something it is the only way and real estate that is lo cated right is a safe, sure and easy way. - - sfeese besi tJk Take a Chance and Buy a Lot or Two at Mauke (Sinf It is conceded by all, in consideration of the gj -r' Beaefyo Flee Hnne Loeatlloes f of Mnciii C lms , Nataral t, No leore Adallfloe!

Canada has received rains and the northwest Is getting June moisture. Lowest wheat prices of the month will probably arrive June 10 tn 12. The decline should not be severe, but it is Impossible to overlook the nren- ent wonderful conditions.

June corn movement should be over by June 15. East has only small corn stocks. Southern Illinois, southern Indiana and Missouri, along with 12 southern states, are still very dry. Theories of old corn scarcity are resilient. If the new corn crop makes great progress June 15 to 30, corn might break in early July, but the old corn crop months promise to repeat 1912 when they rebounded with great en ergy.
