PEANUT MARKET STEADY
The one thing that stands out promi
nently in connection with the peanut
market the past wees is the fact that
prices have not weakeded and that re
ceipts are not as heavy as they were
the previous week. It is also noted that
there is a greater tendency on the part
of independent buyers to take advantage
of the present low prices to buy for fu
ture sales. Both these facts are causing
the growers to have more confidence
and to hold on to their peanuts which are
not below the price they shouldering in
terms of the shortage of thel!&ean?t
The embargo on peanuts, caused by
the coal strike, is likely to cause a
weakening of prices for a brief period,
but this should be the occasion of no
growers rushing their peanuts to mar
ket. They will find slow marketing the
one safe safety first.
