Chicago, Feb. by a leading crop expert that Hessian fly had spread further west in Kansas than was the case last year and1 had infested a big wheat producing ter- ritory gave an upward swing today In the price of wheat. Samples- from Osborne county, Kan., were declared to show that .a serious basis existed for a crop scare. The bulls took ad- vantage of reports of continued scar- city and urgent demand In Groat Brit- ain. Opening prices ranged from i-4c to higher, with May at 3-4 1.31 and July at J1.23 3-1 1.24 1-8, were followed by a slight reaction and then by de- cided fresli gains.

Oats. Scattered purchases were sufficient LETTER Broa. I, Co.. Special Chicago, Feb. news reports from the and southwest caused a strong wheat market early. At the advance the commission house trade sold freely on the advance, as did local traders because receipts continue large and Argentine-ship- ments are predicted to be heavier. At noon the market was below yes- terday's close. A. good deal was made of increased offerings from Ne- braska and Kansas, but cash people located in that territory deny such increase, claiming that the condition of country, roads and the scarcity of cars are operating against any in- crease In receipts.. advance into new high ground brought out heavy realizing sales. A sharp reaction from the high point occurred when outside buying spent HE force and the local trade had accumulated too much corn. The break, in wheat also had considerable to do with the reaction in corn. Milder weather is making it difficult to move -corn from first hands and Is also increasing the danger of handling the very low grade receipts which lost yesterday's gain. Eastern demand is alow, cash handlers in that territory being un- willing to buy freely at present prices, altho their stocks are low. OATS opened strong on buying by seaboard exporters, but like other grains reacted sharply. Free offer- ings of Canadian oats for shipment at the opening of navigation had a bearish effect. Receipts here con- tinue light and reports of increased country offers could not be con- firmed. COVEMENT8 OF LAWN CITX RESIDENTS RECORDED.
