We shipped one carload, withholding the balance for instructions when to ship. No in structions arrived; we sent our rep resentative to Texas to ascertain the cause. He has just returned with the surprising information that on ac count of the drought, comparatively few onions have been planted, and with little prospect of a crop from what has been planted. We there fore believe It wine for the onion growers in the Imperial Valley to plant sets at once. They will ma ture by May nrut, which Is early enough in a bare market. As an in ducement, we will offer Crystal Wax Onion sets on orders of 500 pounds and over, at six cents per pound, the same price the Texas growers paid for their sets two montns ago, or seven cents per pound on orders lesß than 500 pounds. One pound of sets is now equal to one and a half pounds two mouths ago, on account of the shrinkage. Samples will be furnish ed upon application. Decide at once, and order immediately.
