to be superior in every respect to that
milled from last year's wheat, though a
tew small lots of lightly inferior have
been received. There has not been
enough handled to establish, jernianent

Meal and bran are plenty and dull.
The demand for the past three days has
been unusually light.
The butter market is very well sup

butter is all that is wanted. Eggs have

Vegetables are plenty and slow sale.
There is no demand lor round lots. Ap

mostly of an inferior quality.

that ihe prices here given are usually lor

There was a fair demand for choice
