dull, especially in the dry goods trade.
Thoro aro but very few buyers hero at

tho ground. Nevertheless, I am buying
verv freely, as 1 find tho market very
favorablo 'for doing so. Nearly all goods
aro from 16 to 20 per cent, lower in price
than they woro In the first part of tho
season, especially such as dress goods and
ranoy goods, anu siyios aro lar nouer. iu
hope that you are having good weathor
