Since the last teport there has been a
couple of light rains, one oh Wednesday
afternoon, and the other last night
which have settled the dust ou our

Dork, through, 43 cents ; way, wj cents.
There have been very liberal receipts
of flour since Monday, and owing to i
ratber light trade, stocks are accumula
tine. The choice grades are principally
called for, and the supply ol these la not
more than sufficient, while low and me
dium stock I quiet plenty.
Hay Is still plenty and ;dull. A num
ber of cars have been shipped to New
Orleans, not because of any demand ex
utinv there, but because of the fcar of
dealers that It would spoil on their
hands. Choice Timothy is held at from
$12 to $14.
The market Is cntitely bare of corn.
There is no demand except at the mills
and none can be had, owing to the fact
that all the corn that should come to this

but there Is none in the market. The
receipts are nearly all of Middle and
Southern Illinois growth, and they arc
City meal Is still firm and the mills
are wanting corn very badly, not having
enough to keep them running, and the
supply of meal, consequently is light.
City Is held at.$2 40(3,2 43 ; country still
holds at $2 25. Both grades are quiet.
Bran Is dull at $10.
The market Is still weighed down w ith
common butter, which merchants cannot
dispose of at any price. None will sell
but choice, and for this the demand is
urgent There Is very little choice on
the market. There are no eggs here,
and fresh ones are in good demand at 12
Poultry has been coming into the
market freely, and the supply has been
very good all along slnco Monday.
Merchants, however, find no difficulty in
disposing of all that arrives at prices
reaches are selling well, when good
but small clings, which aro com inn moro
freely than any ather kind, are hard to
get rid of. Only choice are wanted.
fifejrOur friends should bear in mind
that the prices here given ore usually lor
sales from first hands in round lots. In
filling orders and for broken lots it is
necessary to charge an advance over
Medium and low grades of flour are
plenty and quiet. The supply of choice
grades is not heavy, while the demand

Dealers are shipping south for fear of
hay spoiling on their hands. The mar
ket h heavily supplied. Only choice for
the local trade will sell. We note the
sale of 1 car, choice Timothy, $12 00.
There is a strong demand for white
corn in bulk, for milling purposes. The
market is entirely bare. No sales were
reported, for the reason there has been
no corn here to sell.
There is a lair demand for good, heavy
old oats, but there is none here. All that
arrives Is Middle and Southern Illinois,
which Is accumulating on the hands of
merchants, there being very little de
mand for them. We note the following
sales : 1 .car Northern in bulk, 33c; 1 car
mixed In sacks, 33c; 225 sacks mixed,
The mills have no corn, and meal
is getting scarce. Country and city
meal are held firm at $2 40(2 45 for the
former, aud $2 25 for country. There is
very little country meal here.
This market is dull. We note the sale
of 220 sacks, $10.
Choice butter is very scarce and In
good demand. Common is plenty and
will not sell. Nothing but strictly
choice is wanted. We note the sale ot 10
pails choice Southern Illinois, 19(20c;
