Uncertainty as to the outcome of farm legislation, together with a dull domestic deman and prospects of o,e further slacking in export de- .nand, kept the grain market in an unsettled condition during the week mding February 19, according to the weekly Grain Market Review of the UniCed States Department of Agri- zulture. Price changes were small but the *.rend of prices for most grains was dightly downward. Rye--The rye market had some in- dependent strength as a result of prospects of a larger Europen de. mand during the remainder of the eason. Export sales to date have not been large but inquiries indicate an increased demand for this grain. May rye at Chicago advanced about 2c for the week and cash grain held unchanged to lc to 2c higher at the ?ri,ncipal markets. No. 2 rye was uoted at the close of the week at )uluth at $1.04-1.05; Minneapolis 1.02-1.0: Chicago $1.04-1.06. Corn--Continued heavy receipts of .orn without any material improve nent in the demand to offset the heavier offerings forced corn prices downward an::l at the close of the week prices showed a decline of about c per bushel. There was an increase noted in the fee.dinE demand at gn as City anct more area was ncluded in the special rate territory in west- ern Nebraska; this somewhat in- ..reased the demand at Omaha. The Pcific coast also continued to take moderate amounts from the Central Western markets. The commercial demand, however, was practically un- 'hanged and elevators were forced to !akc larger amounts, which caused further increases-in the stocks in tore. No. 3 yellow corn at tle close of the week was quoted at Chicago at 70c-71c; Minneapoli.s, 70c-72c; St. Louis, 72c-73c; Omaha, 68/c; and Kansas City, 71c-73c: No. 4 corn at Chicago sold at 2c to 3c under prices 'or No. 3 and No. 5 at 4c to 5c under. Oats--The oat market also con- tinued dull and prices made further slight declines. Receipts were less than for the previous week bdt stoks are-still large and the.demand not very active. Oats suitable for seed are bringing premiums over the ordi- nary grades and there is an increas- ing demand for seed oats at several of the Central Western markets. At the close Of the week No. 3 white oats were selling at 42c to 45c per bushel at the principal distributing markets. Barley--Barley prices in the Cen- tral Western marks declined slight- other feed ' malting types, :Continued scarce and these were taken at firm prices. Best malting types were quoted at the close of the week'at flnneapolis at 71e to 74c per bushel; Chicago, 70c to 82c i and Milwaukee, 78c to 83e. Fee@rag grades were quoted at these markets at from 60c to 70c, de- pending upon quality. FlaxThe flax market hel steady but trading was of small olume. ! There was a very good demand for l good quality cash seed that crushers could  readily use. Elevators ab- sorbed the lower grades and damp seed. Cash flax at Minneapolis was !quoted within a wide range of 4c un- !der to 9e over the May price which closed February 18-at $2.23. Argen- the prices held about unchanged with seed for March shipment quoted at $1.55 at Buenos Aires and seed for May shipment at $1.58.- Ship- ments during the current week were United States. Port stocks were re- crease of about 400,000 bushels over last week's stocks. MAY FEED GARBAGE TO HOGS When properly manage J/, feeding garbage to hogs i,s a practical means of pork production. Give attention to the following points, however: Collect tmrbage frequently and be sure that it is free from soap, tin cans broken glass or other injurious arti- cles. Raw gu;bage is better than cooked garbage. Pigs fed raw garbage wi.ll reject portions distasteful to them. while cooking mixes the product into a mass which may contain substances Injurious to hogs and less valuable as feecl. Immunize hogs against cholera i feeding garbage, as it frequently has in it raw pork scraps which may carry the disease.
