The markets snapped under the strain of overbought conditions. Toward th- close of trading. Immense selling on orders to stop losses overwhelmed the wheat market and toppled prices wildly. The descent of values was at the rate of fully a cent a bushel a minute. Reports of big falling off in purchases of Hour at Minneapolis contributed to the acute weakening of grain values. The extreme fall In wheat was 13 1-4 cents. This was In May wheat which reached a minimum of 91.12 as compared with £1.26 to (1.25 1-4 at yesterday's finish.
