California Deciduous Fruit at
Auction in Chicago
The Outlook for the Crop of Washington
Sgobel & Day Want l.?mons, Not Cured,
but About Ten Days Alter Picking
From the free
Reports were received yesterday from
the lirst open auction sale of deciduous
fruits at Chicago. The site is said lo be
"open" ami to be established for the ox
press purpose of allowing, the small dealer
to go into tho market aim buy
on a parity with his fellow dealer
who handles fruit in large quan
tities. The Union Auction company
sold one car of fruit, and tho results are
not reported lo have been very satisfac
tory; more accurately, the tcsults aro said
to have been not at all satisfactory. The
buyers were not hucksters and fruit stand
dealers, whose needs aro supposed to be
served by the auction system, but were
commission men, bettor known as con
signees of the California shippers; and it
is openly asserted that the auction is
being used merely as a shield between the
growers and the sliippeis, whose con
signees at tho eastern end ot the route
buy in tho fruit at the auction to resell
to small dealers. The net result is that
the consumer pays he same old big price,
while the price to the grower IS not ad
vanced a penny.

The orange market is in rattier a bail
way. At Porter Bros.' auction sale at Chi
cago, May 22d, the prices of choice seed
lings ranged from !iu cents to $1.15 per
box. As the freight, alone amounted to
Oi) cunts, the lack of profit to both grower
aud dealer is mournfully apparent. Ord
ers conitnue to como into the exchanges,
but slowly: and the making of prices is
always hedged about with difficulties at
tendant upon the fact that, there aro a
thousand, more or less, o! dealers and
growers who have i their crop of iate
oranges on hand who are already seared
at the prospect that the bottom will drop
out of the market, The crop of Washing
ton navels is disposed of. They went off
with a whoop, and a good tuauv more
could have been sold if they had been put
mi the market, of the seedlings probably
75 per cent has been marketed, and at fair
prices. The latest variety, the Mediter
ranean sweets, is still on hand, with Ihe
exception of 5 per cent, which has Ocen
forwarded. Prices are low: the fruit is
beginning seriously to feel the effect of
competition with small fruits in the east
and south, and the market is still further
demoralized by the anxiety of ttie growers
tii dispose of the 25 per cent of the seed
ling oranges still remaining unsold. This
state of affairs, however, is not likely to
last long. The seedlings will dispose of
themselves by tho decomposition route,
which, if hard Jon the growers, will be
gooi for the market. '1 he small fruit
season in the east is very short and the
appetito for oranges persistent and peren
nial. Notwithstanding the present un
satisfactory condition of the market, the
promise is good for a better clear-up of
tho orange crop than the California grower
has known before.

A letter irom Horace W. Day of New
York says that on May 21st there were on
the docks and afloat for New York 2110,000
boxes of foreign lemons. This is a large
amount, to be sure, but it is less than has
been reported at this season for throe
years past, and Air. Day sees in the report
a promise of a New York demand for
California lemons. "We want lemons,"
he says; "not cured, but not more than
ten days off the trees and through tbe
lirst sweat,' 'a demand which will be no loss
satisfactory thai; stirpri-ing to those
growers who havo been cudgeling their
brains and depleting their pockets in the
effort to supply the market with lemons
scientifically cured.

NEW YORK, May 27. The World
says: At the present time the receipts of
California ciauges aro ten carloads of
.'IOOO boxes each," The fruit is large ana
delicious, and although in a normal year
the traffic charges are against Califnr
nlant, the Florida planters being onablcd
to undersell their western rivals from 30
to 40c a box. there will in the future be
a standard demand for the luscious fruits
of the Sierra slopes. Last week a car
load of California cherries were sold at
auction. There wero 25,000 pounds in
all. At that sale the California fruit
season of ISC) was formally opened. Cher
ries were of all standard California
growths lilack I'epuOJieans, Tartarian,
Kockpoits, Governor Wood and Prin
cess, and Mold at from s, cunts to $2,06 per
box, containing less than seven pounds
each. A few apricots were included in
the shipment. Cherries will rule In tho
California shipments for tho next two or
three weeks, the apricots becoming in the
meanwhile more plentiful. Peaches will
begin to arrive about June 10th, and w ill
Constitute the bulk of the receipts until
(he lirst week in .Inly, when pears ol the
lfartlett variety—World-famous for their
size and lUSCioUHUOSS —come in, along
with California's variety of giant plums.
Wholesale und Retail Quotations, Corrected
A brisk wind and its acoompan innnt of
flying dust tended to lesson trade today,
but a fair business was transacted.
Eggs are a trifle lirruerand butter shows
signs of weakening under full supplies.
Cherries arc scarce! and a little higher;
apricots and blackberries are growing
cheaper as tho crops come into market
more freely.
Flour has been marked up. and it is
not impossible tiiat a still inure marked
advance may result in sympathy with the
advancing price of wheat.
Quotations follow:

"1 have been using Cerebri nu two weeks, and
I am glad to report the most excellent result.
I was in a stale of nervous prostration that
utterly unfitted me for any continued menial
work. From Hie lirst dose I experienced a re
newed intellectual grasp aud power and clear
ness ami joy in mental work that I had not
known for years. Besides this lam conscious
of an Increase of muscular strength and en
durance that surprises inc. At lirst I was in
clined to suspect that these results were due to
strong* stimulating properties in the Animal
Extracts; but as I studied their effects I found
that they were not only permanent, hut were
of an entirely different character from those
produced by a stimulant. Under the Influence
of nit ordinary stimulant I felt a highly exalted
state of body and mind, but the activity was
feverish and "eccentric, while the effect of the
Cere brine is to give a sense of cool, satisfied,
eelf-controlled mental and physical energy.
