Despite a sharp decrease of the
United States wheat risible sup
ply, all grains went downward to
day. Auspicious reports concern
ing domestic -winter wheat pros
pects gave bears aa advantage. In
addition better moisture condi
tions for spring wheat south of
the Canadian boundary tended to
offset need of a general soaking
north of the International line.
Wheat closed irregular, 4 cent
lower te 1-8 advance, corn un
changed to 1 cent down, oata un
changed to, 1-S-U off.
Out on Decline
. A very noticeable decline la the
anmber of. baby chicks shipped
from Salem this spring Is reported
at the local postofflce. One clerk
said yesterday that far less than.
80 per cent aa many chick had
gone out from this territory than
last year. Declining prices of eggs
with consequent redactions im
peding la poultry growers Cocks
was assigned as the reaaoa for
