Wheat-Quito a lino of buying by the shorts, gave the market a little upturn.   The lack of bullish news, and buying orders from the outside trade, wero inaulHcient however, to sustain the advance, the result being that the market closed at tho low point of the day.   The reports from tiio Argentine crop today wero decidedly favorable, and San Francisco reported sales to go abroad.   Tho Cincinnati Price Current report showed no material change.
