Increases in Supply Is Causing a
Gradual Dropping in
Practically All Meats on List. How- :
ever. Show Advances?Bermuda j
Onions Obtainable.
Fruits and vegetables from the south
and west ore making: their appearance
??n the market in increasing quantities,
and some few vegetables from home
trardens also are appearing. This in
crease in the supp}\ is causing a grad
ual dropping in pricrs in the market?
hi*! ilorrt'jjsing juices will continue \
?? i i 11 i! the ?!iinmcr level ts reached.
Spinach. cucumbers. squash. sweet j
peppers, st ra wherries and pineapples
are all lowor in price today than they
were a week ago. Alligator pears and
cherries from California have made
their app^a ranre'on the fruit benches,
the former selling at 30 to 35 cents
each, and the latter at 50 cents a
pound. Spanish onions have practically
disappeared from the market, and their
place has been taken by Bermuda
onions at 15 cents a small box. While
fruits and vegetables show decreasing
prices, meats are taking: an advance.
In the past week there has been a de
dided advance in wholesale meat prices,
and the retail dealers have been forced
to follow the advance. All meats in
the list, with but one or two excep
tions. are affected. Boston mackerel
are on the fish benches and are selling
at ?>'? to T."> cents each. Prices in the
fish market remain unchanged from
those of last week, the supply on all
\arifties. with the possible exception
of shad and herring, being good.
Geese have disappeared from the poul
try benches, and capons, which last
week sold at from -5 to 30 cents a
pound, are this week quoted at 28 to 35
cents a pound.

Dealers. However. Report Slightly
Higher Prices on Some Varieties.
Dealers in sea food at the wholesale
market at the wharf report a supply of
most varieties of fresh flsb on hand
ample to meet all demands. Shad and
herring receipts continue light, and as
a consequence prices on them are some,
what higher than they were a week ago
The general opinion about the whart
?Market seems to be that the shad and
"erring season is nearly over for this
ear, and that the receipts of the fish
v:ll hereafter be light.
Prices on many varieties of fish are
slightly higher than they were a week
*'go, and this morning ranged about as!
follows: Roe shad, SO cents each; buck
-had, 25 to 40 cents each: herring, 57..00
