Owing to the unusual rainfall during the harvest time, the damage to wheat is serious to both
quahtv and yield, not only in Oklahoma, but largely in the entire western wheat belt of Kansas
Nebraska and Missouri. This will mean a radical decline in the amount of good wheat to be mar-
keted. This should bring about a better price under normal conditions, and now that a great world
war is on in full sweep, it would look reasonable to expect even higher prices for wheat before the
next crop is harvested than has prevailed during the past year.
We are prepared to loan our customers money to hold wheat. We think it a good season to put
the wheat into bins, unless wheat should advance beyond the dollar mark while threshing.
