REVIEW OF THE CORN TRADE. NEED FOR JUNE RAINS. May, 1914, looked very like passing .into the list of drought months—namely, those wherein less than an inch of rain falls. At five in the afternoon of the very last day, the 31st, rain began to fall gently, and the last seven hours of the month added one-third of an inch, so that the record is 1-07iii. Temperature was an average, as the hot spell in the hiiddle of the month balanced the eoid spell just before Whitsuntide. The sunshine record was de- ficient, as in most years May is our sunniest month. Still, 181 hours' sunshine suppli-es RA fair amount of stimulus. The first four days of June added nothing to the season's rainfall, but the fifth -t)rought rain to several counties. Awkward as are June rains for the pleasure-seeking world. the present agricultural situation calls urgently for at least 2in. this side of Midsummer Day. WEEK'S GRAIN GRADIENTS.
