REVIEW OF THE CORN «TIiADE. High summer in middle May is delightful, but it is also portentous. It has its obvious joys, and its hardly less obvious ^threats. The show of spring blossom is extremely brilliant, but is wonderfully soon over. The deep-rooted wheat may be able to sustain the forcing pace of the season, and we see no signs as yet of flagging even on the. chalks. But all lighter and more surface-rooted vege- tation is in danger; and un less we have fairly plentiful and frequent rains (not pass- ing thunder showers merely) within a fort- night the hay crop will be short, and oats will often fail altogether and have to be re- placed by some late root crop. The British wheat gradient this week is be- tween Northumberland (almost always, the cheapest wheat centre) and Nottinghamshire: Nottingham, 34s. 7d. Berwick, 31s. range, 3s. 7d. Prices have risen on the week some- what markedly at Banbury, Bedford, Canter- bury, and Maivchester. Barley has the following range: Cam- bridge, 28s. 6d. Dorchester, 21s. 3d.; gradi- ent, 7s. 3d. No English barley was sold last, week at Hull or Reading, Banbury or Bedford. Oats show the following gradient: Bedford, 20s. Bury St. Edmunds, 17s. 9d.; range,. 2s. 3d.—Mark Lane Express.
