The receipt nre much lighter than they have-been, and dealers have been able to reduce the acctinitilatlotis of ordinary fruit. Hut the marked Is not yet In shape tei recolve much of the fruit I hat Is said to renin In In the Interior; laro receipts would piobabrj undo the Utile Improvement that has been made. Potatoes tiro firm and tending high er. The receipts have boon very llcht and receivers have been nble to wipe out the recent oversupply. Distribu ters are said to be very lightly stocked with potatoes, and as tict-Ipts will probably continue small, any Increase In Hie demand Is likely to end prices higher. Asparagus Is coniinc alonp; fieeiy and sells at reasonable prices. Cabbages are noun too plenty, and there Is a iirmer and more active market for cucumbers. Onions are plenty anel weak.
