Late in the day a recovery led by oils brought back part of the losses, but the selling gained sway at the close. Wall Street had difficulty in adjusting itself to the regime of a 2 o'clock closing. It obviously exercised a restrictive effect on trading Volume fell off considerably and throughout the tape kept well up to the market. It was evident also that efforts of the Federal Reserve authorities to slow down speculative activitio^ were finally bearing fruit. Considerable nervousness was in evidence over the increased bank rate anc the high level of both time and cal money. This apprehension was reflected in substantial selling of steel, Genera Motors and other industrial leaders WHEAT PRICE HERE IS LOWER Wheat was the only grain that showed variation in Monday's trad ing.

EFPINGHAM, May 21-- The heavy rain of Wednesday and Thursday of this week has affected the farmers of Effingham county in. various ways, some beneficially and others exceedingly detrimental.- During the first two weeks or May there was practically no rainfall, and oats, most of which was sown on account of the almost total failure of winter wheat, was damaged by the drought. Dry weather, however, had made it possible for the corn land to be plowed and prepared for planting. When the rain came much more than one- half of the corn on prairie lands had been planted and perhaps 50 per cent., of the corn on the bottom lands was also in. The rain last Wednesday evening and Thursday amounted to almost three inches over the greater part of this county and the Little Wabash river and its tributaries overflowed. Because a very large per cent of the corn already planted along the bottom land was overflowed, it is the opinion of the farmers now that all of the overflowed land will have -lo be replanted, and perhaps, much of the prairie land also. The oats crop, however, and the wheat, what little there is, were greatly benefited by the rain. Hay land also was suffering very badly from the effects of the drought and that will also be greatly bene filed. Pastures had been short this spring on account of the cool and dry weather. These will rapidly recover since the rains. GRAY FUNERAL IN CLINTON SUNDAY CLINTON. May 21--Funeral services for Mrs. George Gray, East Clay street, who died Friday night at 6:30 o'clock were conducted in the Methodist church at 1:30 o'clock Sunday afternoon by Rev. T. H. Tull. Burial was in Woodlawn cemetery. State Resumes Its Experiments With White Snake Root; Field Men Start Getting Specimens _ / Study of Weed to Be Made on Col. George G. Seamans Farm Near Taylorville this Week--Has Caused Heavy Losses o( Cattle TAYLORVILLE, May 21. -- White snake root, menace to cattle on pas- ;ure in Illinois timber .lands, is now :he object of further investigations by Illinois' department of agriculture and sometime during this week, men from the department will visit the Col. George G. Seamana farms near here to collect specimens and study control measures. ' Col. Seamans has lost several cattle as a result of their having eaten the poisonous weed, and there have been numerous reports of stock losses in other parts of the state, believed to have been due to the same cause, Affects Humans It has been determined that the weed is wholly responsible for what is commonly known as 'milk sickness," a human ailment that has caused countless deaths. Last summer the state in its experiments conducted at the laboratories in Springfield, found that the weed didn't kill cattle until the time immediately preceding blooming, and from then until the end of the grow, ing season. But this year more experiments have shown the weed to be dangerous from the time it starts growing early in the summer. White snake root on the stale farm has reached a height of between six and eight inches now, and that is typical of its growth else where in the state. The poison affects the animal's nervous system, and death occurs about a week after the cow becomes poisoned. Last year 20 calves were poisoned for experimental purposes.

Prospects Good for Both Corn, Oats--Baldwin Present prospects are for a large production of both corn and oats, says H. I. Baldwin in his regular weekly crop report. "Frequent t h u n d e r storms, many of them local, a few resembling cloudbursts, have furnished Illinois in general all the moisture needed for the present; over two inches of rain in Decatur this week. Corn planting generally suspended here and probably one-fourth to one-fifth of the corn acreage yet unseeded but fields practically all are ready for the planter; farmers waiting for a few dry days. "Very liltln corn now moving to market. Old contracts will gradually be filled--general impression is that farmer's reserves yet unsold are mostly held for the dollar price. "The w r i t e r drove two h u n d r e d miles through Central Illinois Wednesday last--found some nice wheat in a limited area north and west of here in vicinity of Illinois river. The farmers, in some sections, had left here and there patches of wheat Cor seed where the living plants were so far apart as to re mind one of the wisp of whiskers often shown on the chin in pictures of Uncle Sam. The present prospect for Illinois is certainly for a large crop of corn and oats the coming harvest. "One notices a good crop of hogs most everywhere. Many of them are none to fat on account of corn be ing scarce and high In price. The tendency is to look forward first to now oats to replace as much as possible the feeding of corn. Understand Texas oats will be available in about 10 days and other states coming along till th^ Wisconsin oats are due in around 100 days. "Our advices are that current receipts of corn are not nearly equal to the m i l l demand and that large corn grinders have been drawing on stored stocks for some time. Farm reserves of corn are so small that it may take the use of now oats in liberal quantities as a feeding substitute in order that extravagant prices may not prevail for corn the coming summer. "Hardly enough old oats now moving to make a market--bids from various sources often vary widely in price". RAIN STELATPAVJNG 1 IN VILLA GROVE VILLA GROVE, May 21--The continued rains of this week have delayed the work of paving Front street. The work was discontinued last fall on account of the cold weather and workmen came a few days ago to finish the job. The past winter has been very hard on persons going to and from the west side of town as the slab was completed only to the C. E. I. tracks making a detour of one block north necessary. The pavement will now be completed from the railroad crossing to the Creek residence on Henson street and from there south to the GREAT TODAY, TUESDAY Continuous 1:30 to 11 K)0 A Sure Cure for Spring Fever CHESTER CONKLIN in VAUDEVILLE On The COMEDY NEWS WEDNESDAY Doli-e* Costello In "OLD SAN FRANCISCO" "THE HAPPINESS BOYS" Radio Songsters "THE SERPENTINE" Girls!

H. Snyder, Decatur Bee Expert Also Examines Colonies in Piatt and Dewitt b,466 HIVES EXAMINED Honey bees in Macon, Piatt and Dnwltt counties are practically free from American foulbi'ood, a disease that, in 1911, was found in about half of the bee hives of the state. W. H. Snyder, a Decatur apiary expert, and an aid to A. L. Kildow, chief of the apiary inspection division of the slate department of agriculture, reports conditions as revealed by his inspections during t h o closing months of 1927 and in the months of March and April. In Macon county, and the sections of Piatt and Dewitt that Inspector Snyder serves, the proportion of lice colonies found diseased has been reduced to 2 per cent. In all, 5,466 colonies have undergone investigation at the hands of the Decatur representatives of this service, and among that n u m b e r only 113 were found diseased. The infected colonies have been treated and the disease eliminated, excepting some that wrre so far advanced as to necessitate their complete destruction. See Blight Elimination Trie apiary inspection service of the state, which forms a branch ol the Illinois department of agric il- ture, has carried on an investigation of the bee colonies which has resulted in the practical elimination of the blight that formerly threatened the industry. That the disease is being stamped out at a rapid rate is evident from infoimation gathered from inspectors.and compiled by the apiary division chief, Kildow. Nine nvestigators, working in the southern half of Illinois, have reported, tn all, 19,581 colonies have been inspected. Almost all inspection seiv- ce that has been performed this spring has been confined to the localities that were infested with tli* j slight last year. The reports s h o w ' .hat only 1.4 per cent of the colonios| nspectcd were diseased. From this,! he apiary chief ventures the opj-i-l on that the percentage of disease,! all hives considered, would be ro imall as to indicate the practicjl ilimination of the blight. Inspectors busy in the northcin :ounties, which compiise the greater jortlon of the commercial honoy production area, arc finding similarly ·p-atifying conditions. The reports! hey will submit in May will be com-j iled, and are expected to reveal a 'ike reduction of infection. The progress of this disease elim- soulh line of the residence property of the Henson sisters, a distance of :hree blocks. The contractor expects to open the slab to the public in *.wo months. (nation service is attributed by offi cialD of the state department of agriculture to the co-operation of th» beekeepers of the state and the in' spectlon forces. Only In r»ri cas « do inapoctorB find It d i f f i c u l t to e»| n the aid of beekeepers in effectlnz the removal of the blight. Control Measure Anticipating the success nf t n , i. spectlon service, and In order that' the degree of freedom from dlsea»» now realized might be. maintained' the state last year enacted a control measure to prevent the reinfection of the hives. In ifccordance with pro visions of the act, beea brought In from other states, or transported from one country to another mu«* have passed Inspection and be cerlN fled as free from disease. The samr applies to any apiary equipment or material that could carry the dlseasn nto a territory that has eliminated Lhe blight.
