Detroit, Nov. 13th - The Lake Superior grain trade took another spurt on Wednesday and there was a much better demand for tonnage. Big cargoes were offered freely at 1 1/2 cents on wheat to unload on arrival Buffalo, and a number of big carriers were placed. The steamer Henry Steinbrenner was chartered at Duluth and the steamer W.A. Rogers took a cargo at Fort William. Another big steel steamer was chartered to load the last week in November at 1 1/2 cents. Shippers at the head of the lakes have not been able to get any storage capacity this week, and the indications are that they will have to bid. The rate offer of 2 cents was turned down by vesselmen. Owners say that the risk is too great and that many of the steamers that have been carrying ore all season are not in shape to hold grain.

p.8 Day's Episodes - The steamer Davidson, laden with 50,000 bushels of corn for Richardsons' elevator, will arrive at six o'clock tonight from Chicago.
