The most prominent food grain of the Caucasian race is wheat. It is an important crop in almost every country under their domination, and, perhaps, has a wider habitat than any other prominent product of the soil. Under diverse climates, differing soils, and varied development of agricultural methods, it is an important resource in almost every portion of the globe. It forms a large item in the foreign trade of every commercial nation, and either in the form of grain or flour appears in the trade of even the most obscure country. The present discussion has for its purpose, first, an analysis of the market of this prominent cereal; and, second, a glance into its production and distribution, especially with regard to the United States of America. Furthermore, an investigation of the fluctuations in the price of wheat has been incidentally made.
