Martin Says That Boosters Sold for 10 Cents a Head. Eggs selling at 4 cents a dozen and chickens at 3 cents a pound almost sounds like a fairy tale nowadays. but according to C W. Martin of the Glasgow Tailoring Company these were the prevailing prices during the Cleveland administration. Mr. Martin, at that time was in the grocery business a, few miles from Columbia. In 1900 he moved to Co lumbia and established a poultry and live stock shipping business. Following are prices which Mr. Martin said were paid for products when he began, in the commission business. Eggs. 4 cents a dozen; hens, 3 cents a pound; wool, 12 cents a pound; side meat, 7 cents a pound; best hams, 2 cents a pound; turkeys, S cents a pound; roosters, regardless of weight, 10 cents a head. In those days ope could find hun dreds of farm hands willing to work for 60 cents a day. Today they are hard to find at $6 a day. Wool which sold, in 1900 for 12 K cents a pound is now worth from 40 to 50 cents a pound. Turkeys are now selling at 60'nd 70 cents a pound as against 5 cents a pound In 1900.
