M. + REVIEW 1, 4 ,+++++++++++++++++ Washing on, D. C., May 29. Market arrivals were generally in excess of current needs during he week ending May 29 and cash grain prices largely followed a downward' trend, state, the Weekly Grain Re- view of the United States Depart- ment of Agriculture. World wheat prices again held firm but receipts on domestic markets were the larg- est for several weeks and premiums declined. Moderately increased' coun- try marketings of corn reflected an after planting movement in some sections. Rye was independently firm on export demand but other grains worked lower. European demand for imported wheat continues of fair volume and trade reports suggest a fair demand from this source till the new crops there "are available. Export from Argentina fell off the last week but increased amounts were shipped by Russia and by India. European crop conditions continue generally favor- able but in some of the important: prod'ucting countries they are hardly as good as a year ago. Rains have been beneficial in the prairie pro- vinces of Canada and commercial re. ports indicate that the soil nearly everywhere in his area is in excel- lent condition while the frost expe- rienced does not appear to have caused any damage. Wheat seeding is completed there and: the early grain is coming up satisfactorily. Speculative activity caused' wheat futures prices to fluctuate in domes- tic markets but liberal country mar- ketings cupled with slow milling de- mand forced prices of cash wheat lower for the week. Crop conditions reports in.the hard wheat area show- ed wide variations, d'epending upon the supply of moisture. Iarvesting of winter wheat was under way m Texas. The spread between new and old crop futures at Kansas City nar- rowed slightly but May futures con- tinued 20c higher than the July op- tion. Farmer,s and country elevators continued to reduce their holdings and receipts at Kansas City were the largest since February. Ordinary wheat at this market in some in- stances sold above the high protein basis, with milling demand extreme- ly limited. Elevators, however, were holding the best protein tyoes abou 2c over the May option. Milling de- mand was slack at Omaha but fair amounts were shipped' to Chicago for deliver:g on May contracts. Recmpts increased at Duluth and Minneapolis and premiums declined for the week. 12 per cent No. 1 Dark sold at 12-16c over the July futures at the market; 12 per cent 13-17c over; and 13 per cent 14-18c over. Light offerings of durum held prem- iums fairly steady and' No. 1 Amber durum sold at 5-15c over the Duluth May, which closed Friday at $1.37%. Soft winter wheat was weaker than har<l winter and premiums again declined sharply. Milling de- mand was very limited as mills were meeting only pressing needs. Some soft wheat was shipped from SL ,Louis to, Chicago, probably for de- livery on futures, since this wheat was selling at a discount under hard wheat at St. Louis. Corn prices both cash and futures worked lower, with July futures touching a new low point for the crop. Demand for cash offerings was only fair although good amounts were sold at Omaha to northern and southern Paeafic coast points, while fair quantities were sold at Kansas City for export to Meico. Receipts were materially larger than last week, the after planting movement was disappointing at some of the smaller Eastern markets. Corn llanting was well along in the eastern portions of the corn belt to the central parts of the northern Ohio Valley states. Planting was largely completed in the west except Granger from Washington, D. C. Highways to be built under this appropriation are as follows: The Burns County line section of the Canyon' Cty-Burns highwa>, federal funds, 765,000; cooperation by Harney County, $65,000. The Long-Creek-Beech Creek section of the Pendleton-John Day highway, federal, $50,000; Grant County, $50,- 000.

Maintenance of forest highways, federal, $54,000. The forest highway fund was first created under the Federal Highway Act of 1921. It is expended in the construction and maintenaz.ce of roads of primary importance to state, counties or local communities adja- cent to the national forests. This is in addition to the minor road' pro- gram of the forest service, which is financed from their forest devlop.- meat fund and ten per cent appropri- ations. Selection of projects under the forest highway fund is jointly de- termined by the state highway com- mission, the U. S. Bureau of Pub- lic Roads, and the forest service, En- gineering and construction is under the ,supervision of the Bureau of Public Roads. The forest service co- operates in forestry and fire pre- vention. Chautauqua Opens In Monroe tomorrow, Saturday, and continues until Thursday eve- ning, June 10th.

The almost unlimited buying and selling power of more than 400 stores enables us, frequently, to quote prices below the wholesale costs of the aver- age merchant Our strategic locations often per- mit the advantageous purclmse of farm products in the communities where they are grown without the necessity of paying tribute to numerous nfid- dlemen.

One of the first featur0s of our plant to impress a visitor is the bat- tery of huge biffs for the storage of wheat.' Their combined capacity, is zufficient to supply the'flour needs of 40.0,.000 people for half a year. Such a large capacity makes it possible acrately to grade every incomi'ng shqment of wheat. Without it we couldn't make Fisher's Blend Brand Flour positively uniform. Immediately on its arrival at our mills for storage the wheat is classi- fied according to its composition of flour elements. Henceforth it is re- corded as certain percentages of pro- teiri,'gluten, mineral salts, and so on. Withdrawals for the milling of Fisher's Blend Brand Flour are mad from separate bins in such proper-; tions as will give the exact percent- age of each flour element required by the Blend formula. That is whT" Fisbr's Blend is the same today,  ,, last month, as ten years ago. ...,=Lg FISI'R FLOURING MILLS, CO Seattle--Tacoma---lortland lend's Aak, 00'end: 00dnll'Pu00ose,,qlour ..... I
