It was estimated that the arrivals at the two terminals would reach a total of 1900 carloads. Reports of rain in the Cenadlan northwest tended also to make the market easy. Opening prices, which ranged from 'Ac lower to %c advance were followed by an all around decline. On big Increase In the visible supply prices closed weak, % to l@',sc net lower. t Hot dry weather over most of the belt brought about a« sharp rise In corn. Higher cables coulnted further against the bears. After opening H to %c up, the market score'd yet additional gains. A decided reaction ensued, owing to news of rain in Missouri, Iowa, Illinois and Ohio. The close was steady at % to %c net decline. Oats proved weak compared with corn. At first, prices bulged in sympathy with the coarser grains, but a fair increase of selling pressure led to a material setback. / Provisions climbed on account of the continued upturn in the hog market. Pork led the advance. M A R K E T S CHICAGO BOARD OF TRADE QUOTATIONS (Furniihed by War* 4 Lfland.) Chicago, July 13.--Following is the range of prices with Saturday 1 * clo«: WHEAT-- Open. High.

POTATOES HIGH BECAUSE OF DROUTH Rats Would Knock Bottom Out ot (3.00 Price, Assumption, July 13.--The dry veather has damaged the potato crop onslderably In this vicinity. The ·ine s are strong and healthy, but the new potatoes do not develop and grow as they should. Ola potatoes retail at 3 cents a peck, and new at 50 :?nts. V«th a good rain the difficulty vould be overcome and the bottom would fall out of the $2.00 a bushel price for the new potatoes. WHEAT NOT DISAPPOINTING. Wheat threshing Is just about finished. While the yield has not been very good yet, it is better in some Instances than was expected. Th« fields of Jeff Norrls averaged fifteen bushels an acre, while other fields nearby only made two bushels an acre. The harvesting of the wheat has been put on earlier this year than usual on account of the, dry weather and the ravages of pests. The oats fields, which have developed enough to pay harvesting and threshing, will be handled later on. This necessitate* a second series of threshing' for the larmers which is ordinarily disposed of at one clip. DECATUR MARKETS.
