There has liecit a very lair showing of
business since Thursday, and to-day
opened up very encouragingly, with In
dications that a good week for our mer
chants will ensue. At no time within
the past six months has there liccn
such a scarcity of country produce as is
reported at present, and farmers who
have poultry, eggs, potatoes, butter, t ic,
will do well to forward or bring it to this
market, where Ihey will receive for them
the highest cash prices. The weather Is
cool and pleasant. BiHlne on the
rivers continues very good. Bates to the
south by steamboat are unchanged.
In the flour market, there Is still a
scarcity of low grade flour such as
can he sold I roi 11 $ to $1 25 per bbl. The
demand for these grades Is active, much
greater than for any other brands, but
there is none here. Of choice grades
there Is a supply alsntt equal to the de
maud, but nothing more. Medium
grades of Hour are iu lair supply and
quiet. Il is believed that the decline in
ilour, which has lt n going on steadily
since the threshing ol the new wheat, rs
about at the stopping-oil' place, and that
the next change will la a rise. How this
belief will "pan out," however, remains
to lie seen.
The cotnmo'i hay w hich has la-en of so
much discomfort to dealers is still in
abundance, while choice is scarce, w ith
a fair demand for If. The receipts of hay
since Thursday have not exceeded over
Like choice hay, good tints arc very
slow to arrive. Then; Is none to speak
of in the hands of dealers. There Is an
active demand for them.
Then is a light supply ot com on the
marke', but there Is very little demand.
The only sale noted was made to the
mills by one of our merchants. .Meal Is
quiet, but Una. Bran is plenty and very
The market is bare ot choice butter,
w ith a demand that is urgent. ( 'ooking
butter is also scarce. Kggt are in fair
supply but there is not any more lu re
than tiro needed to satisfy the demand.
Farmers who have eggs in hand will do
well to send them in at once. Poultry is
scarce. The demand continues very
ifood. Good young chickens will bring
from f 2 23 to $2 SO.
The market has lecn entirely cleaned
out of potatoes. The Inquiry for choice
Is very good, at about ThO cents per bushel.
Apples are in good supply. Shippers
who send apples to th's market, should
use some thought in the matter as to the
kind of barrels they ue. Apples in
small barrels will not find as ready sale
as those packed in large barrels, owing
to the fact that It costs equally as much
to ship a barrel containing two bushels
and a uc-ck, the amount generally put
into a small barrel, as is does to ship a
large harrel containing ! two bushel' and
three peeks. Frequent complaints ol tho
small barrels are. made by merchants,
.and shippers w ill do well to heed these
frdr-Our friends should bear in mind
that the prices here given nrc usually lor
sales from tlrst hands in round lots. In
filling orders and lor broken lots it is
necessary to charge an advance over
. Choii-c grades of Hour are iu supply
about equal to the demand, as arc also
medium grades. Flour that can be sold
for $1 to $4 2.", are scarce, with an urgent
demand. A number of orders for the lat
ter grades cannot lie filled, owing to this
scarcity. The sales reported were 500
bis. various grades, $5fVi; 300 bis. va
rious grades, $30 25 ; 100 bis. various
grades, $tC; 733 bis. various grades,
city, $3 758 50 ; 100 bis. various grades,
$3 50(5,0 50.
Choice hay is very scarce, while the de
mand is good. Common hay is plenty
and very dull. The only gale noted was
that ot 1 car choice Timothy, $12.
This market is extremely dull, there
being no demand whatever. The re
ceipts of corn for the past week have
been very light. There Is very little on
the market. We note the sale ot 300
sacks white, sold to the mills, at 10V.
There U an active demand for choice
heavy oats at good prices. There has
been no arrivals ot any consequence in
the past week, and the market is bare.
Xo sales were reported, for the reason
that there Is no oats here to sell.
City and country meal is in fair sup
