The principal new Influence for the lowering of prices today was the fact that threatened black rust Bamage to spring wheat had apparently been routed outright T>y cool weigher. Trading was only of moderate volume and tho passage of prices to lielow $1 to place no spectacular accompaniments. Opening prices was varied from unchanged figures to %o lower, Sept. 99%c to $1.00H, and December $1.0234 to $1.03, were followed' by Blight further declines and then by a little rally. Subsequeutly the market underwent a moderate fresh decline, largely as a result of selling on tho part of houses w^ltb northwestern connections, apparently liquidating wheat which had been bought some time ago on account of tho scare about- Mack rust. Rallies ensued later, and tho market closed unsettled Vi to %c net lower, Sept. 99% to 99% c and December $1.0214 to $1.02%. "Corn and oats were easier, with wheat execpt that July corn showed a brief •temporary bulge.

Now York, July 11.—Stock pricoa continued rcaetlouary In today's dull session. Intermittent soiling of standard shares, 'founded ou lower commodity prices took place throughout the day with a number of the leaders dropping to new low records for tho year. Halo approximated 125,000 shares. New York, July 11.—Opening prices In today's stock market were reactionary. Selling pressure was most effoctivo in stools, equipments, motel's, oils and coppers. Ralls also wore In supply, Union'Pacific dropping a point. American Hide fend Leather preferred and Consolidated Textilo established now low prices for the year. United States Steel, Baldwin, American Can and Btudebtiker all opened fractionally lower. Offerings increased as trading progressed and losses of one to two points became quite common In all •ectlono of the list. Lower commodity prices, particularly of wheat, sugar and crude oil, appeared to bo tho dominating Influence. Among the many stocks yielding a point or more were United States, Quit States, Pethlehem and CrticiWo SteeU, Bald- Win Loco.motive, New York Central, eoathern HaTway, Chandler Motor, Mack-Truok, International Harvester and American Bmolting. Foreign exchanges opened higher. Belling orders originated almost entirely with professional traders but their offerings slackened when United States Steel showed, Indications of good aunport after touching 89Mi, or wlUiiji V-L of a point of the year's low. Tho Initial selling movement soon spent itself, tout not until several additional stocks had established now minimum prices for the year, Including American Sugar, Sinclair OU pre­ ferred, Buriis Brothers A, and American Writing paper proferrod. Rallies in the usual leaders were not very lm- prosalvo but a few of the ordinarily Inactive issues "registered good eains, American Chicle rising 1%, and preferred five, and South 1'orto RJcan Su^ar, Youngatown Steel and Tuibo, American Tobacco preferred, Pressed Steel Car preferred and International Harvester preferred climblug i to nearly 2 points.

Wilbur Groves of near Raymond has finished cutting bis 350 aero wheat crop.

Jean Gray of Rico county Is selling ; part of his 1923 crop as he threshes and will etoro tho remainder. His yield ia running 14 to 18 bushels to ,the acre and testing 60 pounds. John DicSy southwest of Lyons, says his wheat will average 15 bushela to the acre. Practically all the harvesting is over in his vicinity and the farmers are putting their teams In tho corn fields or listing. H. 15. Davis, who recently moved to Hutchinson from Frederick lias been out to oversee harvesting on his form and <Joo9 nott beltove be will averagu over 10 bushels to thte acre. Wind damage to wheat which caused grain to go "down" before the harvest lug machines reached it, la estimated at 14 per cent by A. C. Sauherll, of Lyons. When binders first went into his 50O acre wheat field ten days ago^ Mr. Sanborll estimated his yield at 15 bushols an aero. Saturday- ho returned from a trip to Ellsworth county with a revised estimate of 13 bushols. The two bushel loss is attributed to wind and ruin which caused much grain to toppel over where tho headers could not cut It. •$> PRODUCE REVIEW. .$> «• Bv Swift & Co. •* * * <8> <$> 4, * •'•• * « * •••' * <i> Egg production is reported llghte . with good demand from cousuming trade.

Lyons, July 11.—New wheat grading regulations went into offset at the mills hero yesterday whldh will yield farmers a slight premium ou high gluten grain this year. O. C. Schumacher, of the Lyons Milling company, announced that beginning today wheat would be bought hero ou a haBls of 53 lb. test instead ot 50 lb. test. For every pound over this flguro which wheat friadcs, tho seller will be pfitd a one cent premium. This means that farmers aelling 60 lb. wheat will be paid a ukn-t over tho market hid. Jean Gray, who Is marketing 62 U>. grain will receive a 3 cent premium for ids crop. Last year the 60 lb. tust basils was in effect hero. ' . Most grain whU-h was- brought. In during tlie first two or three days that harvesl -tiiroBhers operated tested 59 to 60 lb. and tt Is belioved that this now basis will net most farmers an advanced prlco for their crop. With tho announcement that both Lyons mills propose adopting this 69 lb. basis, It is probable that the Stoi- llmr and Saxman markets will follow suit.
