Supply of Peaches.
AH Are Grown In Ohio, and Prices
of Last Year Cut In Twoj
It has been conservatively estimated
that during the week ending Friday
evening, 8,000 bushels of peaches havo
been sold In Akron. Of course, this
means that the sales next week will
not be so large, as the harvest Is now
In Its fulness, and nearly every fam
ily has canned large quantities.
While It is thought the later varieties
will be better than the earlier ones,
It is safe to say the canning season
Is pretty well advanced. An aggre
gate of $000 bushels is anticipated
for next week. .
Nearly all the peaches sold here anj
grown In Ohio nany of them In Sum
mit county, x. crop on O. W. Hale'a

mated at 1,600 bushels.
As a rule, the frlut is of good qual
ity, and prices are much cheaper than
during this time last year. Then the
best varieties sold at $2.25 a bushel;
now the best varieties are selling at
$1.30 per bushel, and the market is
overflowed by the supply.
It Is estimated that 1,500 bushels of
peaches wtl be sold in this city Saturday.
