It would be inadvisable to allow stocks to get ixjiow those, of November last, and it will probably be- necessary to arrange for importations coming in from about"the middle or beginnimr of September. If all stocks were freely marketed, and purchases did not exceed actual milling requirements, the. necessity for importations would probably not. arise so soon ; but with a genera! knowledge of a comparatively small and poor harvest there will no doubt he a tendency to bold stocks back.
