Only good reports are re? ceived from distributive trade centers, and some markets report the fall demand as holding out longer than expected. Railroad earnings, bank clearings, returns and quotations of staple prices are all encouraging, pointing as they do to a maximum volume of business for tin's period of the year. Crop returns lor October bear out earlier impressions of shortened yields of most leading agricultural products. Iixpectat ion of more moderate yields of leading cereals is not confined to this country: The world's wheat crop will admitt? edly be smaller, the rye, barley anil oats yields are not expected to be large as a year ago.
