Tho sudden rise wss largely duo to active purchasing on tho part of previous sedlors who were nervous over concerted efforts being made tO\lifo values. Unusual publicity gtren to the movement urging investors to "buy 1.000 bushels of wheat," and housewives to "buy a barrel of flour" received special notloe in this connection. Uesides there was an evident falling off In the Toiume of rural offerings of wheat.

GRAIN GOSSIP Kansas'CIty has been chosen as the market of tho American Wheat Growers Association, Inc., pooled in Nebraska and Colorado. Tho handling of this volume of wheat goes to the Farmers Union Jobbing Association. R. H. Glandon, manager of the Great Bend Board of Trade, says that people interested in politics won't believe it, coming from him, but ail the trouble with the farmers' markets today is the cry for regulation by the. government. The Capper-Tlncher bill Is in offect and what happened he Says IB that the speculators who had dealt In wheat rather not have their accounts roported to the governments they quit dealing. Then a little later tho government decided that reports of only aW.bOO bushels and over must be reported but the speculators were dealing in other stocks and wouldn't touch wheat. The government bus control now and the farmer is paying for it, !s_the contention of Mr. Glandon who of course represents the speculative end, Hut ho says further that seven out of every ten speculators are bullish and play tor higher prices instead of Jprylng to make lower prices. The politician probably has a much different view of tho waiter, URGED EATING OF MORE BREAD DAILY Thirty Ago Today The Arkansas river win bank full heeauee of the, roultla* snows In the Colorado moun- t»ln».

By Swift & Co. <5> «- .j- * «> .:> 4, .$> * ,s, .:. * 4, Butter production Is keeping up remarkably well, being much larger than the same time a year ago. Pastures are reported to be In fine shape. Importations of foreign butter continue to be an important factor In shaping the markot. Arrivals last week were: 1.000 casks from Argentine. (A cask contains 112 pounds.) 5,5^0 cask.s from Denmark. 470 casks from Holland. The total importation of butter Into the United States for the first five months during 1922 and 1923 follow: 1923 8,308,000 lbs. 1922 2,346,001) lbs. With the largo current production of butter and continued importations, buyers have not been so anxious for Block. Ninety score Standards are quoted at 37 cents in Chicago today as compared with 37^ cents a week ago and 33 cents a year ago. Lighter egg production and collections have resulted in a little higher market, both In producing and consuming centers. The movement of live poultry has been about normal and lighter receipts caused a better feeling on live fowl, the market In New York advancing to 27 cents until Friday, when it eased off and closed at 26' cents. Live -broilers are. in good demand for current use and for feeding purposes, and prices have boon w r ell-sustained, although any marked increase In the movement would bring about lowei- values. Quotations on dressed poultry did not advance in sympathy with the live market. This is due to quite a surplus of dressed poultry on the market, besides large storage stocks, which have not been reduced as the trade anticipated, Tho U. S. Dept. of Agriculture, In its preliminary report Issued on July 9, shows-the following holdlugs of buttor and eggs In storage: Eggs, cases Butter.Uis.
