The following is the Ashburton grain market report for the week ended February 7, 1914:— _ . j Practically all the harvesting m the County is over, except for the latest districts near the hills, and the gram, is safely in stack.; The damage is chiefly confined to. the crops that,..received the heavy rams earlier in .the season. Offerings by growers are now general, and a fair amoimt oi -gram is being placed on offer daily. _ Wheat.—There is a good inquiry for all really prime samples of gram fit for immediate milling purposes, but a large proportion of the samples oilermg are badly weathered and out of condition. For prime quality milling, values for prompt delivery are:—Tuscan ss., 3s 5d to 3s s£d; Hunters, 3s 6d; Pearl, 3s 6d ;to 3s 6*d ; inferior samples',- 3s 2d to, 3s 4d, as fowl wheat; all on trucks at; stations. Gats.—The demand is good, but, although recent values are well maintained, and for choice lines are slightly firmer, values cannot bo said to _havo made any material advance. Quotations are:— A. Gartons. Is 7d to Is lid; B. Gartons, Is 6d to Is 6|d; Duns, Is 6d to Is 7d; Algerians (prime) Is 6£d 'to Is 7d; Algerians (light ordmjary lines), Is 5d to Is 6d. Chaff.—Prime new chaff may be quoted at 50s. on trucks, but only limited business is passing. " ;
