Tho g t ^ is in this country; the only question is one demand. The demand batyear bom E o r i^ waa for 169,000,000 busbds out of a erop eatimated at 420,000.000 bnahda.

The loweat estimate yet made plaeea tha crop at 360.000.000, the hurgest at 440,000,000. and a crop of 430,000,000 may be toasonably oounted Thia ia aa increaM in. ton yean ot 188.000.000 biuhda ia tho annud wheat produetion of thia eountiy. and an inetean nearly equd to tho total wheat harvaat d twenty yean ago.
