Cash oats were a little better today while barley and flax remained steady. Trading for future delivery was done in all grains but barley. October wheat opened at $2.13, lc higher than Monday's close and was bid up as high as $2.20 during the session. As trading in futures ceases on Aug. 31, it is thought that business now being done is of an evening-up nature. Fluctuations in oats were narrow and around Monday's) prices. October wheat closed 3c up, October oats Vic higher, December Vgc higher, and May ',4c higher. October flax closed l"'ic lower, November lc hlgheT and December l%c up. Barley unchanged. Futures.
