STATE FLOWER Honor is Iowa's, Since Hawkeye State Stands Supreme in the Matter of Henneries—The Egg Situation—The General Markets. Down in the land of the reformers and trust busters, the land of the cast iron lid, the stamping ground of the Folks and Hadleys, otherwise knrfwn as Missouri, someone has lifted the lid long enough to allow the editor of the Maryville Tribune to uncork the fol lowing while discussing the state flow er question: "We favor the hen as the state flower because she pays off mortgages. She buys food and drink and clothes for her owner. She sends the young men and women to school and keeps them there—longer sometimes, it must be confessed, than is good for them. She blossoms early ^and late, in fair weather and in foul, and everywhere she is plucked with enthusiasm and with acclaim. Why this great common wealth of ours is one glorious bouquet of magnificent flowers—cochins, leg horns, Plymouth Rocks, Black Spanish and others as numerous as pin featfr ers on a pullet. Of course, we've got a state flower. And there's scarcely a home in all Missouri which doesn't have one of them on the table at least every Sunday for dinner." Taken on its face value Iowa should naturally have first choice at this to work out the plan proposed by the Mis souri genius. None other can com pare with the Hawkeye state in the hennery business. Of course, there would be some danger of the people losing their senses during the winter and wishing to make graven Images of old biddy as she "sat" in her nest with the delicacies known only to herself and pecked at the passersby. But perhaps the price on eggs will not be as high this winter as it has been in previous years, and then again it may be. The truth is that just what the situation in regard to storage eggs will be next winter, is an open ques tion. The Egg Situation. The season just passed brought with it more than its share of misfortune and a large amount of education to certain dealers, who had thought the storage business a sure get-rich-quick scheme. Many good resolutions were made as to what prices eggs should be stored at in order to insure a fair pro fit from their sale, that is these reso lutions were made at the fag end of last season. But now these same deal ers stand at the beginning of a new season, with all its opportunities and possibilities. What they will do is a question. As one local egg dealer said recently, "It's only a matter of nerve." Some of the fellows who got caught last year will be timid about repeating the dose this year while others will figure that their luck must change. Actual situations which face the egg business and which should have some effect on the storage matter are these: In the first place it is already near to the middle of April and where last year at this time thousands of cases W' I tii P!ps»py 10c 1c ...It RIBBONS.

HAIL TO THE HEN O W A O O 0 I were In storage hardly any eggs have yet been stored this year. Nor does the prospect of stortpg eggs at any reasonable figure seem very bright. The eastern markets are short on eggs in suulying the demand tor immediate use. The receipts have been large, but the consumption has been enormous. Kggs have been bring ing 18 to 19 cents in New York and Boston, because of this shortage. Because of this price no one can af ford to store eggs as against selling them at the present market figure. Then again none of the local dealers believe that the present high price in the eastern markets will last and ex pect that at any moment the price will drop. It is stated that the bad condi tions of the roads and other agencies have kept down the receipts from the country and that soon the markets will be filled to overflowing. The' fear of this coming drop has kept down the local prices. Potatoes Higher. The trend in the wholesale price of potatoes seems still to be higher. A card issued at the first of this week by one large local dealer gives prices in wholesale lots at from 70 to 80 cents on eating and seed stock, accord ing to the quality. WHOLESALE PRICE8.

Heavy Business Horses Are in Broader Demand at Firmer Prices. Chicago, 111., April 11.—Normally spring trade is passing through the season of its greatest activity and ur gent demand. Spring supplies -are be ing purchased and heavy business classes are in better request, with prices firmer, but not quotably higner. Country shippers are not inclined to make concessions on current quota tions, as rural prices are high and the bulk of the receipts have been bought on very close margalns. Considering country prices as compared with wholesale figures, profits on a steady market are light and on a weak and declining demand shippers are sure to lose on their investment. As com pared with a week ago demand and prices are fairly steady, with indica tions of a reaction rather than im provement on current values. Small southerriers are lower on indifferent demand, as the bulk of the urgent spring trade in the south has be?n supplied. Present orders on southern account comprise "principally a class of medium drivers at $115@135 and upward to $150, with the bulk of the purchases at $120@130.
