The weather for the last day or two
has been more favorable, tin ugh It will
require a week or ten days of warm, dry
weather to put the roads In even a

There is nothing out of the ordinary
run ot business here to report. There is
a fair order demand for flour, but no
speculative demand. The foreign news
has had little or no effect on the market
here, and prices remain aboat as last

ten days have been comparatively
light, and stoats are some
