Small advances were maintained during most of the morning but light hedging..sales in the' afternoon coupled with liquidation Induced by Ihe wide break in grain prices caused a re.newal of the sagging tendency noted for the past few weeks. The net- loss for the day ran from 8 to 12 points. Trading was lighter than usual, even for a pre-bureau market. The issuance of another private estimate giving Uis \leld as D.421,- COO, an increase of 550,000 for ijie month, apparently had no effect, as 11 already seems lo be wett established in the minds of the trade that the next government. report will show a substantial increase. Thc weekly weather report was about in line with expectations, showing that picking progressed favorably everywhere except in the northern part of the belt where rain for a time delayed field work. Over (he greater par of the belt the weather could hardly be more favorable nnd a vast Amount ol cotton is being picked dally.
