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
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 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
