tbe local newspaper goes further toward
moulding tbe opinion which Is formed
abroad of a community than all other
agencies combined. It sheuld be a truth
lul reflex of tha moral and material

published. Along experience ha taught
us that It takes money to publish such a

community are fur greater in such an
enterprise than the proprietor's can poa

accomplishing such a result.

There U little change In the genera1
condition ot the market here worthy ol
note.'. Business Is only moderately active
and excepting in a few;instsnces, limited
te the order trade. Tbe flour market is
weak and li20c lower all around, and
transactions are confined almost ex
clusively to tbe order trade. There Is
nothing doing in a speculative way. Re
ceipts are fair and stocks ample for the
wants cf the market. Receipts of choice
bsy have been more liberal and tbe market
istalrly supplied. There to s fairly active
demand for choice and good mixed at
quotation, while common and low
grades are dull and unsaleable. There Is
an active demand for corn, and all that
arrives finds ready sale at prices below.
Receipts, however, are light, and there la
very little on the market. The same may
be said of oat. Prices continue firm at
quotations and receipts are readily dis
posed of. The supply is light. There
Is an active demand for meal at $3 23
2 30 for city, and S3 10(3,5 13 for country
kiln dried. The supply snd demand are
about equal. Bran Is steady at $13.
The market Is overstocked with pota
toes, and prlucs have declined until It is
almost impossible to make freight and
drayage out ot them. Commission men
do not care to handle them In the press
eat condition of the market, tor they can
not give satisfaction to shippers. The
season for apples is about over, and
very few are wanted. Prices
vary according to quality. There Is a
scarcity ot choice butter, while tbe de
mand is good and prices stronger. Me
dium and low grades are plenty and dull.
Receipts ol eggs are large and the supply
sbundant. Prices are down to GftfC.
Poultry Is in good supply and receipts
liberal. The demand Is lair, feauota-
