The general trend of shipped stuffs is for a lower priee and all sorts of spring and summer dainties which are now coming from Florida will soon be retailing at a mueh less price. Strawberries remain high, 75 cents per quart, but the quality is the best so far this winter. The demand for strawberries in Richmond is picking up and a number of quarts is sold each Saturday. Mangoes are higher, retailing at ten cents each, three for twenty five cents. There is little demand for these. Brussell sprouts are worth 30 cents per quart, tomato?s ten cents each and cucumbers are bringing twenty five cents each. Celery is worth from five to ten cents per bunch, according to the size.

Cauli flower is worth 25 cents a head, egg plant 20 cents each and cabbage 3 cents per lb. CHICAGO MARKETS No Snow Southwest; Shorts Went to Cover; Wheat Finn on Possible Damage to Crop; Corn Receipts Large. Chicago, February 9. Covering by shorts, because of firm cables and continued cold weather in the South west, caused a firm tone in the local wheat market. The failure of a heavy snowstorm, predicted by the weather bureau for Kansas and Ne braska, to arrive according to sched ule, was an important factor in the calculations of traders. It was ex pected that the snow would form a protection for the crop, which trad ers now believe may be damaged by cold. The May option opened yc to c higher, sold off to S4c, and ral lied to SfyHc. Cables Lower for Corn. The corn market was easier be cause of an excess in local receipts and lower cables. May opened un changed to y$c lower and for a time held within these figures. Prices in the oats market were steady, but trading was almost life less. The provisions market was about steady. There was moderate selling by pit traders. Chicago Grain and Provisions.

INDIANAPOLIS MARKETS Hog Prices Climb Over Six Dollar Mark; Reached Same Mark Five Months Ago; All Buyers in the Field. Indianapolis, February 9. Re ceipts 7,000 hogs, 1,650 cattle and 500 sheep, against 8,332 hogs, 1,635 cattle and 5S sheep a week ago, and 3,567 hogs? 757 cattle and 88 sheep a year ago. There was a good average run of hogs, but smaller than expected at this time in the year. All buyers were in the field, and there Avas a prompt transfer of the supply at prices 5c higher than yesterday's average. There was an easy outlet for late arrivals and the closing sales were steady at opening prices. All hogs are still selling at practically the same price, and there was only a 5c range for most of the supply today. Sales were made "at $5.90(a6.05, but there were fewer at the low point and more at the top price than yesterday. The bulk of the supply sold at $6.00, against $5.95 yesterday. The top price today is the highest since Sep tember 9. Active for Cattle. Cattle Receipts were larger than they have been recently. There was a good dmand from all sources, and buyers being more anxious for the female butcher grades, they were the first to sell. There was also an active market for steers, and with the de mand equal to the supply a satisfac tory clearance of all kinds was made in good season. In a general way there was no quotable advance in prices over yesterday, but the mar ket was steady to strong and 1015c higher than the close of last week. There was a steady demand for feed ing cattle at recent prices, bulls sold promptly at yesterday's prices and there was no quotable change in the calf market. Good Sheep Strong. Receipts of sheep and lambs were larger than they have been for some time and for the first time recently there were enough on sale to invite all buyers into the field. The demand from outside sources, however, was not good and local dealers had to be depended on to take most of the sup ply. The market was not quite as strong as it has been, but good kinds sold as well as yesterday. A few lambs brought $7.25 and most of the good kinds sold at $7.00, while culls are as low as $5.00. There were not many sheep here, but a few sold as high as $4.50 and culls as low as $3.00. Cattle.

MOVEMENTS OF IMPORTANCE Were Confined to Special Stocks and the General List Became Intense ly Heavy and Dull. New York, February 9. Light transactions carried opening prices in the stock market over last night's with a few important exceptions, in cluding Pennsylvania, Southern Pa cific, Southern Railway and U. S. Steel preferred, which showed frac tional declines. The striking gains were in the same quarters that have been conspicuous for some time. Can adian Pacific was carried up 1. Na tional Lead 14, Great Northern pre ferred, Reading and Colorado Fuel a point. Professional operators, after being successful in undermining the mar ket and driving prices back to yes terday's opening level or below, re versed their position and bid up the list to a higher average level than at the opening. As for some time, the coalers and the Hill stocks were the chief centers of speculation, and their movement dominated the gen eral market. Northern Pacific and Great Northern preferred advanced 3y4. Listless Speculations. Movements of importance were confined to special stocks, and the general list became intensely dull and sluggish. Great Northern pre ferred and Northern Pacific rose 4, Tennessee Coal ly, Union Pacific, New York Central, and one or two others a point or more. Speculation was of too listless a character to cause any striking fluc tuations except in a few selected stocks. Reading became moderately active, and rose 1. NEW YORK STOCKS. (Furnished by O. G.
