CRP AND PRODUCE MARKET JMarkct Being Looked Upon as a Two-Sided Affair. COEN IS NOT BREAKING RIGHT Traders Posted .on Yellow Cereal Not Satisfied with, the UlnpoKl tlon Thnt Ccrenl In Slnnl- festttifr. OMAHA, Feb. U. 1914. Cash sales of grain at Chicago yester-. day were 40,000 bushels of wheat. 80.000 bushels of u.ir.i und 1M.UC0 lueliels .f oats. A disposition existed among- wheat traders last night tn look upon the mar ket as a two-sided ntr.ilr for the time being. Bears' were 'Hspoit.l to picdlct a decline of 1 to 2 cents as the best tnlnc to put the market In cood shape nnd they said thero had been advance enough. Bulls pointed to the export rales and said they were right and that the trado would realize It later. The thing that made some operators go slow on the buying side was the sale of 20,000 bushels of hard wheat nere to go to store. Receipts for the weeic wero al most 1,000,000 bushels, which Is an unusu ally large run for this season, vhllo shipments were less than onc-thlrd of the arrivals. Traders who have studied the com market closely of late said it d its not break right for the bears and It is not expected to for some time. Tho move ment has not Increansd as much as ex pected, although tho run hero for tho week is 370,000 bushels more than tho previous week, but is much short of last year's. The disposition to soil short on breaks makes It easy for a few local bulls to control the market when the crowd all get too bearish. Hlowness in . F?n comand makes many operators afraid of the buU aide, although tbey xeel that corn Is selling more nearly at tt5ual value than of lute. Tho bears say they expect to seo lower prices luur In tho season. American corn is better for making starch than the Argentine product. Thla Is shown by the action of the Corn Products company In shipping an average Ji.? c,nr from ShlS?K to its starch plant at Oswego, N. Y, Considerable confusion exists among wheat traders over tho roport of cxnort business and the denials thereof" One of the leading Duluth exporters reported Having sold 2.000,000 bushels of wheat bushels of No. .1 Duluth northern and a vfrJSh ViTUm- ?.ut tho trade refused to uuihti. th.e,V . "?Ure8 claiming 1,000.000 iiushels of it simply represented the trans- ;nn.SLOWr,".rsh,p from ono exporter to another. This transaction, however, was SmII?'.

H.-Exnort sales which were said to have reached a large total brought about a rally today in wheat. Tho market, after having shown a declining tendency most of the day, wound uu steadv at the same as last night to a shaile off. Corn and bats) closed also virtually unchanged. In pro visions tho outcome was u setback of lOo to 22Ho. uuying of wheat for l?uropcan shipment took place chiefly here and nt Duluth. Tho business was about evenly divided between tho two cities and did not re ceive any publicity Until near the end of mo session. Previous to th-t time the market had been depressed by continued snowfalls In the winter crop region and by reports of rain throughout the central province of India. Moreover receipts ror the week nt Chicago were tho largest In five years during this part of the sea t-on. I Estimates that country elevator stocks northwest had been depleted 5,000,000 bush els since Kcbruary 1 helped the late re covery in tno price oi wneat. 'mere were also statements that much of the wheat in Montana had been sold to go to the memo coast. Corn swung upward when wheat de veloped returning strensth. At first. however, tho corn market was heavy on account oi overnight oners Having tailed to attract eastern buyers. Prime weather for Bhclllhg and hauling counted also against tho bulls. In the oats crowd the trading consisted chiefly of hedging against rural purchases. HOg prices at a higher level gavo a lift to provisions. Stock yards Interests led the buying. Artlclel Open.

At eastern points the market has been weak owing to more liberal supplies and to the further fact that tho consuming demand was none loo brisk. Btockers and feeders sold stronger dur ing tho early part of tho week and later on cased off a little, so thatat the close thero Is very little difference In current prices than at the closo or last weex.

From tho outset, bids on good butcher and heavy stuff were steady, but during the early rounds the lighter hogs were more or toss neglected. Sellers wero of the opinion that values should bo slightly higher, and for tho first hour they held their offerings on a nickel higher basis, but In the end they were forced to meet tho prices proposed by the buyers, and when the bulk of the supply moved, the prices paid were gen erally steady. Values were more or less uneven, homo of the decent butchers look ing to bo a little stronger, while the mixed and light kinds wte no better than steady, and In some cases were quoted as a little easier. As a General thing, however, the market can be quoted as steady with Friday, lluyers' reluctance to take hold of the light stuff made trade more or less draggy, but the moderate run was protty well cleaned up by 10:30 o'clock. Bulk of offerings moved at $S.208.40, with a top of $8.45. For tho week values show a net decline of about 10c, For the first two days values looked up a little, but from that time on, heavy receipts at this point, and stumpy markets else where forced the trade steadily down ward, so that today Is the first ttmo since Tpesday that prices have even held their own. Today's top of $8.45 Is a flat lOo lower than a week ago, and Is 15c below tho year's high mark of $8.60, paid last Tuesday, Receipts amounted to neventy-nlne cars, or 4,676 head, making tho week's total 65.941 head. This Is over 12,000 head larger than a week ago, hut utmost 2,000 head short of the same period last year. This week's run Is the heaviest of tho year, to date, and Tuesday's heavy supply was the largest since Juno of last year. V- . QU B. f. . 31 1(8 ... 3 00 81 .w. ni. ou. wt. ,ig, AT. on.

Receipts for the week have been 64,920 head, which Is a little more than last week, but about normal with the corresponding week a year ago. The continued cold weather has had a stimulating effect on tho eastern trade In dressed mutton, creating n bullish feeling In sheep and lambs on the hoof here. While prices on lambs show an advance of 10S25C, and aged sheep about JOftlSc, as compared with the close of last week, It seems to be the general opinion among traders that trade In most all kinds of klllora continues extremely sensitive to the site of the receipts. As an indication of this the packers again showed consid erable discrimination against anything only half hat and were, as a rule, very particular as to weight. Heavy weight lambs or sheep were not In much favor, as most buyers seemed to want some thing really good and of handywelght. The bulk of the fed western lambs at this week's close moved around $7.10jj 7.60. with a shipment of Mexican Iambs reaching- $7.56. A wek ago most of the fed western lambs changed hands at $6.90 37.2$. If anything, the general quality of tho lambs offerings was a little better than the close of the previous week. A very fair supply of ewes showed up (toward the close of the week and a range !of $1856.20 took the most of them, as Irompared wjth $i.C6ti5.0J a week ago. Very fair quality was the rule most of ihe week, thr.'j.h few strictly iholce grades were available. Host ewes are quotable nt $5.16 and possibly would bring 15.80.

Persistent advertising Is the sure road to business success; Putting "News" Into Advertising Tho newspaper gives a certain amount of "news" value to advertising wheth er the advertising has any news in it or not. And this is one of tho first essentials of an advertisement if it is to attract any attention. If an advertisement is meroly a space filler no one is benefit ed but tho publisher. It is up to tho advertiser to divert attention away from the oth er editorial and news matter in the newspaper. To do this calls for a rare combination of sales ability and literary talent. Anyone can buy space in a newspaper if ho has the money but no live mer chant or manufacturer will want to continue vory long merely as a "space buyer." The newspapers are filled with space-buyers prosper ous merchants and manufac turers whose margin of pro fit and volume of sales aro large enough each year to permit of this expenditure Notes From Omaha's Busy Suburbs Dundee. , Mrs. K.

The way to galvanize advertising into life is to put news into it to invest it with humnn. in terest to make a strong ap peal to human needs and de sires. Tho advertising must rospond in somo particular to tho human hunger for news and the word "news" is merely another name- for information. Now, as I havo said be fore, even tho dryest display advertisement will take on a certain amount of news value if Jt it is run in a newspaper, is in the atmosphere of news, it is on a live wire. It is carried, along in a ve hicle of commercial progress. very community has a few commercial dead weights who aro carried along on tho crest of local enterprise. The city moves forward in spite of them unconsciously thoy sharo in .tho general pros perity. And so with tho advertiser who is in the newspaper.
