Prospects of larger marketings of wheat combined with a less active demand from mills developed a weak- er tone in the wheat market during the week ending October 24, accord- ing to the United States department of agriculture The demand for other grain was also less active and prices tended slightly downward. There was but little change in the foreign wheat market situation. Lat- est reports indicate that the wheat area to be harvested in Australia will be about the same as last year and that the acreage in Argentina will be about 1,235,000 acres larger. The demand for wheat from Euro- pean countries continues dull because of the large amounts of locally grown wheat, which are still available. Mar- Phone 501 ketings of Canadian wheat continue fairly heavy although they have re- cently been reduced by stormy weather in the western provinces. With fall work nearing completion larger marketings of wheat are ex- pected both from the spring wheat and hard winter wheat sections in the United States. This, together with the continued importation of considerable quantities of Canadian wheat and a temporary lull in the domestic milling demand, was prin- cipally responsible for the weakened tone of the market during the week. Premiums for cash wheat of all kinds were lowered materially in most mar- kets. 12 per cent protein No. 1 Dark Northern sold at the close of the week at Minneapolis at 9-14c over the December price; 12 per cent protein 13-18c over and 13 per cent protein 16-21c over. No. 2'hard winter 12 per cent protein sold at Kansas City at 12c over the Dec- ember price; 12 per cent protein 13c over and 13 per cent protein 14c over. Premiums for soft win- ter wheat were lowered 5-8c, No. 2 red winter being quoted at Kansas City at $1.62, at St. Louis at $1.67 and at Cincinnatti at $1.65-1.66. Ex- tremely small flour sales reported by the winter wheat mills as well as an increased movement in Texas and Ok- lahoma restricted the demand for hard winter wheat in the central western and southwestern markets. The wheat market in the Pacific Northwest was quiet although firm. No new export business of any vol- ume was reported as white .wheats were 12-15c above an export basis. Receipts at Portland to date lave been only about sixty per cent of those for the same time last y6ar, notwith- standing the increase in the crou. Moderate quantities were being sold to eastern and interior mills which were paying better prices than pre- vailed at the markets. Farmers were ,still unwilling to sell freely at cur- rent prices. A less active demand was princi- pally responsibie for the weak tone of the corn market. Rains in the corn belt continued to delay husking and marketing and receipts of new corn at the markets were. not large. General movement is not expected o get under way for some little time because of weather conditions. In- dustries and shippers were the most active buyers at Chicago and milling demand' was more than sufficient to absorb the offerings of white corn at Kansas City. Wintry weather in the Northwest increased the feeding de- mand at Minneapolis and high grade corn was in fairly good demand" at Cincinnati and' St. Louis. At Cincin- nati, however, a large percentage of the receipts have contained excessive moisture, and these moved slowly. Oats prices were but little changed but the large stocks in the markets continued to be a weakening influence. Receipts continued fairly large and were well taken. Large amounts are being corisumed on farms and the E. E. J OHNSTON Monroe, Wash. 114 Oil Heaters Takes the chill off any room in a very few minutes.

An unusually active demand was reported from Denver and ad- vices from seaboard indicated that about a million bushels had been sold for export. In general, however, the oats market was rather dull. The rye market continued to fol'low the wheat market with the situation practically unchanged. Cash offer- ings were light, but there was only a limited demand from local mills and elevators. Export demand continued negligible. The barley market was also prac- tical unchanged'. Ms, taters were active buyers of desirable qualities at Chicago and Milwaukee but the de- mand for feed barley generally con- tinued dull. The increased offerings of new barley in European markets has restricted the export demand and exports have declined. No new busi- ness was reported at Portland and exporters at San Francisco were said to be shipping only on old orders. Choice brewing barley was quoted' at San Francisco at $1.90 per 100 lbs., and feed barley at $1.55 per 100 lbs. The London market reflected the weakness in the European markets and new crop California barley on sample was quoted there at the close of the week at $1.93-2.22 per 100 lbs ! Superior California barley was quoted on sample at $1.93 and c. i. f. $1.59- 1.69 per 100 lbs. The flax market made further slight declines largely on account of lower quotations on Argentine flax which is being imported by some of the eastern crushers. Exports indi- cate that about 9,000,000 bushels of Argentine flax are still available for export. The peak of the movement in the United States is passed and recent unfavorable weather has de- layed marketing. Crushers are taking all spot offerings at prices ranging from lc over to 3c under the Decem- ber future price, which closed Oct. 23 at $2.56. Elevator stocks of flax at Duluth and Minneapolis have increased materially and at the close of the week were reported at 3,213,- 786 bushels. + + +++++.++++++++.e. 4, AT THE CHURCHES 4 +++++++++++++++ METHODIST EPISCOPAL Morning service at 11 o'clock.
