A RISE IN
MOVEMENT HAD ITS ORIGIN IN
SHORTAGE OF WORLD'S CROP
"Wall Street Says the Advance Has
Been Unduly Stimulated by Public
Suylng and a Reaction May Occur
When Least Expected.
.Special to tho Ardmorclto.
Now York; Aug. 22. Speculation
for the rlao was somewhat confuse 1
by the sharp advance In wheat by the
unsettled condition of the steel trade
And by tho further decline In crop
conditions. Tho movrnont In wheat
ofcourso has Its origin In il o short'
Ago of tho world's crop and tho fall-
ing off In tho yield or tho United
States. The advanco however ap-
pears to havo been unduly stimulated
by public buying: and a sharp reac-
tion may occur when least expected.
.As for tho break In steel wlro pro-
ducts It Is lmposslblo to toll at this
writing how far caching that step
. Concerning the crops August as
urual la proving a month of recession
In many respects. Cotton and wheat
havo noticeably declined during Au-
gust and whllo this is not likely to
chance tho ostlmato of a 12000000-
balo cotton crop it has seriously af-
fected tho wheat harvest; though
hpino conservative authorities are
fctill figuring ou a 575000000 bushel
crop. Corn has thus far escaped In-
jury nml Is in promising condition
eyctpt that tho crop Is generally two
week late and Is especially exposed
to Injury from froBt. For ccm the
estimate Is still 2500000000 bushels.
Whrt tho effect would bo upon the
stock market and general business
also of damaging frost to thl3 import-
ant crcp no one enn venturo to pre-
dict. Stilllco it to say that a large
corn orop is the mainstay of present
hopefulness and failure to reallzo
thoso expectations would certainly
exert a depressing influence through
out tho country. Such a contingency
may not happen; but it Is sufficiently
near tho range of possibility to en'
forco caution in stock market opera
Mens at least until tho dnnger period
Is moro nearly passed. As for tho
other Important crops they nro all
proving satisfactory and tho outlook
remains as in previous ndvlets fa
vorable to' a profitable season for
farmers and planters in nearly all
sections of the country.
Aside from tho unsettling features
just mentioned tho outlook remains
favorable to a good active market.
Stocks continue to bo held In strong
bands and their owners who liavo
exceptional sources of Information
aro still in an optimistic framo of
mind. Wall Street is always In Its
most buoyant mooi when speculation
Is rampant and like all emotional
constltuences it Is correspondingly
depressed when fool for excitement

Street has been tho most dejected
