Chicago. May U. Today's wheat

during tha dar of wheat going to $1.16,

at tha and of the session was when De

Today's - sharp, advance in the wneat

severe damage wnion. nas neen reportea
In the various wheatbelta for aeveral
weeks.,. According to today's news there
is scarcely wheat section in tha world
outside of the Pacific coast states that
la showing up aS.well aa year ago and
that section does not produce a very
large per cent of tha world's supply. .
: , .. . ' -. Kaoord Braakaa, S'-'?.'.: ;'! .
Tbe most wonderful feature In regard
to today's sharp advance in tha price of
wheat was the fact that prices went up
about I cents a bushel yesterday. In
tha lata trading the advance' in wheat
amounts to fully ,16 cents a bushel, the
largest advance seen at this time of the
season for many , years. A year ago
during the entire month of May the
prlca of wheat advanoed about 10 centa
ajmshel but tha trade here expects tha
pries to show an advance" of fully 25
centa a bushel for the month of May In
1007.- . v ;,.. ;,,
The report, of the government yea
terday showing the large loss In tha con
dition of wheat aa -compared with nor
mal seasons caused tha market to open
this morning, at a Very sharp advance;
At the start of tha session May option
went swiftly to 87 centa July went to
88 Mi. September to 90 Mi centa and De
cember to Sl cents. - In every Instance
the opening values were the extreme low
marka for the day, the trade being most
bullish from the start . Those who
missed getting into the market yester
day before the great rlsa, gave- their
brokers, orders thla morning to put them
at the market, no matter where It stood.
This accounted In a measure for tha
sharp advance In values right after the
session started. A .;v Kxt-V't
- Never,, were . conservativa. traders
known to be so wild In their bidding aa
during today's session. Some of tha
big traders freely predicted that tha
market would reach $1.26 a bushel be
fore long. Everyone was buying wheat
and few wanted to aelL Everyone maJe
money, those selling : securing a profit
and those buying likewise coming In for
their share. .The .riotous' scenes re-
