During the months of January and" February, when the ' market' was overloaded with ■ wheat from all wheat exporting countries, they refrained from offer ing wheat on a "sick" market, but during the month of March, in re sponse to a much stronger demand overseas, sales of a little under a mil i lion bushels were made at an-average I price of 53/ per "quarter.
