The question of 75c or below wheat rests with Canadian and northwest weatheT In next 20 days. Foster says Canada will be dry during July. The threshing yields denote a 600,000,000 winter wheat crop. July and August wheat receipts will exceed records. Farmers are selling. Total U. S. wheat promise probably maintained at 900,- 000,00. Old wheat near exhaustion.

About 20 per cent of the seven sur plus corn states is dry with 40 to 60 per cent of average moisture since March 1. General condition of corn, however, is high. Corn promise July 1 should be 2.973.00,000 against 2.-971.o00.0f-0 last July and 2.811.000,000 two years ago. Sentimental dislike to bull ide old crop months above the 7('c price continues.

The dry strip in the big corn and a;s states has extended but little perhaps mostly in Missouri and Kan sas. The central west and southwest show an excess of daily temperatures but ther? has been no serious prolong td heat as yet. Pork and ribs are probably near their commercial value. Lard remains sa attraction to the bulge seller. Cotton remains s great guess as to acreage. A lara crop Is impossible. Later excitement should be In brew Lengthy dips In cotton are not lndi cated.

Weather features over night comprise nearly two inches of rain at many points in North Da kota and temperatures of 96 to 102 in southern Illinois, Missouri, Kansas. Nebraska and several southern states. It was cool in the northwest and Can ada on Friday. Wheat feeling is bear ish. Old wheat has been rushed to a qulok sale abroad, and new wheat vol ume promises to be earliest in years. Newspapers mention the marvelous Kansas threshing yields. Volume of daily hedging saies is declared above expectations. Indiana and northern Illinois continue to receive rains. The Record-Herald thinks September oats will sell at greater discount below the December. Cash men believe the break in cash corn is enoush. Wheat bears believe mere size of Kansas crop will force 75c wheat. Ther? is no scarcity of old oats. Liverpool wheat Is under control of record of heavy European contracts in t';ie Unit ed States. The two-inch downpour in North Dakota may bring complaints. Locals say northwest can take all the water that June sends for- her wheat crop. Lxtreme heat of Friday missed Texas, but touched a maximum of 104 in Alabama. The June 8 governent report indicates 1146.O0O.0OO wheat for Kansas, and a total or 638.000,000.

American yachting enthusiasts who are anxious to see the international cup remain in the United States have not been filled with glee by the most recent re pTts of the doings of Sir Thomas Lip ten's challenger, the Shamrock IV. In trial spins this yacht has proved itself the suDerior of all the other Shamrocks, and of all other challeng ers that have ever sought to wrest the cup from Uncle Sam. The latest number of the London Yachtsmman to reach America has the following to say concerning the Sham rock's first trip: "On Thursday last Shamrock IV had her first trial under sail, and n.ade a most favorable first impres sion. Soon after 11 o'c'ock she was towed out or Portmouth harbor in company with the 23-meter Shamrock. Sail was hoisted and the tug cast oft when abreast of the Spit Fort. The day was' admirably suited to a first trial, which naturally could not con f-is of more than setting the sails and ;'ving them a preliminary stretch. fceing fine and warm with a light west erly air. "In one point Shamrock has not come up to the prophecies made about her, for she carries the usual jack- yard topsail ' instead of the so-caKed Marconi topsail it was generally as sumed she would appear with. She came up to expectations, however, with her single heads'ail set on a staj and laced to a boom on the foot. Whether it will be retained seems a lit tle questionable. As far as we know it is an experiment in a boat of this size. "It was used in old-time craft, but the proportions of the old sails were quite different, being longer in proper, t'on on the foot, and the old sails had probably more lifting power. In a mod ern craft the Jib is a fine lifting Bail, and it has also been said that with the divided skirt you have tv.-o "ead In,i edges,' and this is claimed as an advantage. Certainly Shamrock's lib. foresail, forestaysail, or whatever it may be called, looks the sort of sail to depress her bow. "For an hour or so after she was under way she was galled about under the two sails, and Mr. Nicholsen went bloft to hove r look at the gear. Later a jackyard topsail and jib topsail were both set. The breeze freshened a lit tle, but the challenger, in 6pite of her lofty rig, seemed quite as stiff as the 23-meter, boat, and began to drop her rapidly. "After a short time topsails were got down and they were put before the wind with spinnakers set, the 23 meter boat as the breeze softened quite holding her own. They went as far as Bembridge and then came back close hauled in a freshening breeze, the 23-meter boat rapidly drop ping behind. The day's work finished off the Hoose Fort after they had done about four hours' sailing." This Is The Man Behind the Loans POLITICAL ADVERTISING. For County Treasurer.
