Shad Prices Soar
Owing to' Scarcity
Shad are scarce, according to deal
ers here. That's the reason they're so
expensKc. There was -a drop the past
woek of roe shad to 73 cents from Jl, and
of buck shad from H0to3 cents, but It
is not expected this will be permanent,
it is declared, because the supply being
taken from the river is so small. Few
shad have been taken from above Mary
land oint. It is explained. Operations
at Windmill Point, on the upper side of
Potomac Creek, were suspended about a
week ago, it is said.
The starting of work at Fairy land
ing. Chapman's Point, and other places
depends, it is said, on how soon the
mud-saturated water settles. It is ex
pected that the haul of the big seines
at Chapman's Point will be started dur
