SOMETHING ABOUT PECANS.
Where They Most Abound HowThey Are DouQht and Sold. The following Interring art U It pecans we find In the MunKop-f Times nnU will prove Interesting r.a 1 InR to overy lover of that nut: Joseph Sontlhelmer has bought flf toen pounds of pecans. Thero Ik nr.th Ing strange about such a trnnsBc-tinn. but It brings to mind the fact that thr pecan season Is at hand anil that there will be marketed many thousand pounds of those highly prized nuts within tho noxt three months. I'ccans grow In tho Indian Territo ry, Toxns, Southern Missouri, South ern Illinois and Indiana. But the great pecan countries aro the Indian Territory and Texas. Mr. Sondholmor is tho pecan buyr of the Territory. Ho has been In the pecan buslnoss for thlrtyflvo years. When be bogun buying pecans It was In tho days when towns and white men wore scarco In tho Territory and tho only moans of transportation was by water down tho Arkansas river or n long haul over the Kansas border to railroads In tho states. Then tho buying was in small quantities and from tho Indiana or from whlto fron tiersmen nlong the borders . Now It Ik different. In a good year for pe cans llko last year Mr. Sondhelmor buys from 600,000 to 000,000 pounds (pecans soli by the pound, forty-four pounds to tho bushol). Tho prlco ranges from two conts por pound to ten cents, affectod largely by tho Texas crop. Years ago the Crook and Seminole natlonB woro the pecan countries and from them most of the ptoans were bought. For tho Creek Nation Okmul- geo was the great buying center and one year Mr. Sondhelmer had a man thero buying pecans while he was him self In St. Louis selling them and the buyer almost swamped him. Every carload would be reported the last, but was followed by another and still another until It seemed the world could have been supplied with pecans by Okmulgee that year. Last year Mr. Sondhelmer shipped 600,000 pounds of pecans and the price wn fairly good. This year there will be a big Texas crop and the price may be lower. At present pocans are sell ing right around six cents, but they will drop within tho noxt thirty days to four conts. Tho year's crop will not begin to movo well bofore tho first of December. Thero aro lotc of pecans In tho In dian Territory that go to wasto ovory year In tho full-blood districts bo causo tho Indians will not gather thorn, though ft Is very profltablo, there being no xponse savo picking them up. Last year Mr. Sondhelmor paid one family, somo Bohemians, who live on tho Verdigris, $1,200 for pecans. Pecans aro shlppod In car loads, ex cept In tho early Boaeon, when thoy arc sent by oxpross. Wbon tho big crop of '97 was bolng gathcrod, Mr. somihcimer paid over $1,100 express to tho Frisco road for shipments made over that lino and ono tlmo paid ex press on 13,000 pounds at $2 por linn droii. There will bo as largo a crop this year as thero was In '97 nnd that year Mr. Sondhelmor shipped twenty- five car loads. From this placo thoy .ire shipped to St Louis and Chicago and some to Now York. Texas furnishes tho bulk of tho pe cans for tho United States. Last year thero woro 1,000 car loads Bhlp pod from that stato and most of thorn went to Now York via Oalvoston Buying pecans Is a very risky busl iiess, tho domand and tho supply be ing equally uncortaln. Somo Union thero seoms to bo no demand for nuts where tho yoar beforo they could not get onough, and vlco versa, while on n growing crop nothing llko an est! mato can be mado until they are brought Into markot, owing to the re mote districts in which they grow Consequently ndvanco prlcos aro sol dom offered and pocans uro hough only in quantities to fill the demand In sight.
