Secretary Carlisle recommends a
good deal of promiscuous taring in
order to raise the revenue of the
government up to the point of ex
penditure, but lie is bright enough
not to suggest taxing manufactures'
iuconics for the purpose Ho knows
that manufacturers, under the Dem
ocratic regime, will not have any in
come to tax.
The St. Jolmsbury Daily Repnbli
, can, after a struggle of a year or
two, has "given up the ghost." At
times the Daily has been quite newsy
and sprightly, but of late it was evi
dent that its days were numbered
and it was only a matter of time
when it should cease to exist. The
Weekly Republican, which has al
ways been a good paper, will con
tinue, and we have no doubt now
that the daily incubus is cut off the
weekly will be all the better.
In case the Wilson tariff bill
passes, people may possibly be able
to buy some things cheaper than
they do now, but if the production of
the home manufacturer is curtailed
or ruined, the wages of the working
man and omen reduced or entirely
cut -off, and the sales of the mer
chant and therefore his income
diminished what advantage will it
be to any of them to know that they
can buy goods a trifle cheaper than
they did under a system where every
American was helping every other
American?
The President has nominated Hon.
Wayne McYeagh of Pennsylvania as
Minister to Italy in place of Van
Allen, declined. While McVeaghmay
be classed as a Mugwump, he is
nevertheless a very able man and
well fitted for the position. President
Garfield appointed him to be Attorney-General
in his cabinet, and he
held the office until Garfield's de ath
Of late he has been independent in
politics and last fall gave Cleveland
his undivided support. The appoint
ment, however, shows conclusively
that Grover remembers his friends.
The Hoke Smith pension smashing
policy got another, and probably the
worse, raking in Congress last week.
Gallant Gen. Sickles, Democrat of New
York, who left a leg in Gettysburg)
marched down the aisle and, throw
ing his stump leg up on to one of
the desks, denied the statement
that the pension rolls are honey
combed with fraud. He said very
plainly that "no party will rule
long in this country, and no ruler
will possess or deserve the confidence
of the American people who casts
unmerited stain on the pension rolls
of this nation."
Ex-Senator Edmunds was in Phila
delphia last week, and in an inter
view on the Hawaiian question de
clared that the appointment of Mr.
Blount as a special agent of the
President was illegal and unprece-
v dented. When asked how he thought
difficulty could be adjusted he
'That question is difficult to an
swer. The -snatter will require a long
time in which to be adjusted, and it
looks now as though it would never
be definitely decided, unless this or
some other government establishes
a protectorate over the islands. The
Provisional Government appears to
to be firmly intrenched in its posses
sion of the governing power."
A National Appeal. The Ameri
can Protective Tariff League, in
special and extraordinary session on
December 16th, responding to the
earnest request of wage-earners,
unanimously ."agreed that it was
necessary to call upon the press of
the United States to urge every pat
riotic citizen to assist in defeating
the proposed Wilson Free Trade
Tariff, which is now before Congress.
If this measure becomes a law, the
demand for labor in all productive
employments in the country will be
decreased. This will reduce the
wages and earnings of every man,
woman or child among us ; perma
nently lower the standard of living
in this country, and reduce the pur
chasing power of our wage-earners,
who constitute the great consuming
force in this land. Every person,
rich or poor, high or low, old or
young, who is not in favor of lower
wages and less comfort in life, should
at once write a postal card from his
. or her district, protesting against
the passage of this bill and demand
ing that the McKinley Tariff be left
unchanged. Write a postal card to
day, and urge every friend of yours
to do the same. Perhaps your effort
will defeat free trade and save pro
tection.
The Queer War in Brazil. The
most peculiar feature of the war in
Brazil is that the belligerents cannot
get at each other. The loyal army is
unable to ngnc trie rebel navy. Ad
miral Mello cannot reach his enemy
on land, and President Peixoto has
not been able to reach his enemy at
sea. The rebel ships fire a few shots
into Rio once in a while, and the
shore batteries take a few shots at
the rebel ships when they get a
chance; but the admiral dare not
go ashore and the president cannot
take to sea. it is one of the most ll
logical wars that has ever been
fought, even in South America. It
has been going on for nearly four
months, and we doubt whether a
hundred live, or even fifty, have been
lost by both belligerents in that time.
We suppose that it can be continued
as long as Mello is able to find sup
plies and Peixoto is able to keep him
offshore. Perhaps the most sadden
ing thing about the war is its ex
pense. The people of Brazil seem to
take but little interest in it, and very
few of them seem to care which side
wids. Yet, for all that, they will
have to foot the bills. New York

Startling Statistics. The Rail
way Age says that since January 1,
1893, receivers hav been appointed
lor no less than 71 roads, with near
ly 23,000 miles of road, an outstand
ing bonded indebtedness of almost
$754,000,000, and capital stock ag
gregating over f 534.000,000, mak
ing a total of almost $1,288,000,000
of stock and bonds from which all
returns are suspended with the cer
tainty that a large part of their
value will be wiped out before the
long process of the court is ended.
This is an unprecedentedly bad
showing. Twelve per cent, of the
entire capitalization of railroads in
this country is now in receivers'
hands.

Let the RIcht Men Do It.
The Democratic Ways and Means
Committee ought to understand that
if they undertake to make a new
protective tariff, they will make a
terrible botch ot it. llow can they
hope to compare successfully in such
business with the last professor of
protection, Yilliam McKinley, or
with an equally able master of the
art, now associated with them,
Thomas Brackett Reed? What non
sense to suppose that the inveterate
enemies of a certain economic sys
tem and the studious advocates of
another utterly different and op
posed, can suddenly transform them
selves into experts m the application
of the principles for which they have
cultivated lifelong hatred? As well
might miners leave their picks and
come up to make watches, or a lot
of aborigines used to war clubs be
gin to practice with dynamite guns.
The McKinley tariff is probably
the most learned and scientific com
position of protectionism ever known.
It has attached to it the machinery
whereby the electric current of reci
procity can be turned on at any mo
ment it may be thought best. If
another protective tariff is wanted,
we cannot imagine anything mora
anomalous in statecratt, or more
absurd in fact, than a lot of preten
tious amateurs from a hostile school
assuming to do the job.
McKinley is not in Congress, but
Reed is, and a member of the Ways
and Means Committee. If we are to
have a tariff for protection let the
boss protectionist and his partisan
colleagues arrange it. If we are to
have a Republican tariff instead of a
Democratic tariff for revenue only,
in the name of wisdom and folly
both, let the Republicans make it.
Any other method of procedure will
not be monkeying with the tariff
only, but monkeying with the un
varying practice of public business,
and with the simplest dictates of
commonsense. New lork bun.
The Wilson Tariff. 1
The American Economist publishes
the following from well known Wind
sor, Vt., county manufacturers rela
tive to the Wilson tariff measure:
We regard the Wilson tariff bill as calcula
ted to produce an unfavorable effect upon
the prosperity of the country. If enacted, its
effect upon our business the manufacture of
flannels would prove disastrous, ine sharp
discrimination made against blankets, flan
nels for underwear, etc., seems to us indefensi
ble and nnjust. Whatever rate may be se
lected, we have a right to expect an impartial
application. We think under the proposed
bill that wages would be materially reduced
below their present level and the purchasing
power of the people further decreased.
J. C. Parker & Co.
Quechee, Vt., Dec. 4, 1893.
The proposed tariff will work disaster to
the prosperity of the country. Our industry
will be affected seriously by bavin? many
things to contend with which we have never
had. We shall need to reduce wages to meet
the new conditions. Less wages means less
ability to buy. 1 he north acted aDd voted
like fools last year. They pnt the south in

The second edition of the December
World's Fair Cosmopolitan brings
the total up to the extraordinary
figure of 400,000, an unprecedented
result in the history of magazines.
Four hundred thousand copies 200
tons ninety-four million pages
enough to fill 200 wagons with 2000
pounds each in a single line, in close
order, this would be a file of wagons
more than a mile and a half long.
This means not less than 2,000,000
readers, scattered throughout every
town and village in the United States.
The course of The Cosmopolitan for
the past twelve months may be com
pared to that of a rolling snowball ;
more subscribers mean more money
spent in buying the best articles and
best illustrations in the world; better
illustrations and better articles mean
more subscribers, and so the two
things are acting and re-acting upon
each other until it seems proba
ble that the day is not far dis
tant when the magazine publisher
will be able to give so excellent an
article that it will claim the atten
tion of every intelligent reader in the
country. . '

FARMERS' MEETING.
The Board of Agriculture met at
Johnson last week Tuesday and elect
ed II. A. Deecher of Johnson, chair
man. Mr. Foster of Johnson gave a very
cordial welcome to the board and as
sured them of the confidence of the
citizens and farming community of
the county. Chairman lieecher sup
plemented the address of welcome
with a few fitting remarks.
Mr.Winslow, secretary of the board,
opened the meeting with an address
on the "Outlook for horse breeding."
lie said that he had been informed
that there were already too many
horses raised in this section, and he
queried if this was the case, if only
the right class of horses were pro
duced. It might be equally true that
too many cows were being raised, but
it's only true on the principle that it's
too many of the kind produced, and
it is always true that the best ani
mals will always sell for good prices.
Farmers should not try to raise trot
ters, for they don't need them, but
now is a good time for a farmer to
go to raising good horses, and it will
surely pay. There is no man who, if
he desired a good, cheerful driver,
with courage and endurance, will take
anything else if he can get a Morgan ;
and my advice to you is to stick to
what you Vermonters can do better
than can be done in any other section
of our land.
Mr. Sinclair How do you feed your
colts and horses?
Oats is a good muscle producing
food. I am now feeding all my colts
and horses on the floor and I find it a
good thing for a horse to reach down
for its food. For work horses I like
to feed cracked corn.
Do you like to feed dry corn fodder
to horses ?
I think it would be all right to feed
dry fodder for a change.
What do you feed a weanling colt ?
Bran and oats and sweet skim milk.
Mr. Hayward Did you ever feed
sour milk ?
No. Did vou ?
Yes, I have fed a six quart pan of
thick sour milk with good results.
Do you think it safe to feed four
quarts of oats a day to a weanling
colt ?
Yes, perfectly safe. If you feed high
you must give exercise at the same
time.
Will a colt do well in summer if fed
high in winter ?
Don't stop your grain feed at once;
when you turn out to grass keep it
up for some time.
Mr. Beecher Should horses be wat
ered before feeding grain or after ?
1 prefer to water before feeding.
afternoon session.
The afternoon session was opened
by a lecture on the "Potato disease"
by Prof. L. R. Jones of the State ex
periment station, who illustrated his
lecture by charts showing the diseases
of the potato plant. He spoke espe
cially of three diseases scab, rust or
blight, and rust or rot. All of the
three diseases are the result of a fun
gus growth. Fungus is a plant
growth, or rather a plant of itself.
Incredible as it may seem, a single
leaf may and will furnish at least a
million seed bodies, each one of which
is capable of reproducing itself, and
by a wind will be carried to the whole
field. When it strikes a field, in a few
hours the leaves will begiu to rust,
rot, and each leaf will furnish its
myriad of seed bodies, which if car
ried down by rain to the tubes, will
cause them to rot and spoil. In this
way you will find the potatoes near
est the surface are the most affected.
In this way we may carry the disease
into our cellars, and the next spring
we carry the disease back to our fields
and replant it, by which the disease
is continued.
Now we have the secret of cure or
how to stop it. When the spores are
carried over the field by the wind they
fall on the top of the leaves, and by
sprayinc we can destroy the life of
the spores. The Bordeaux mixture,
by its use in spraying, has added to
our vield at the experiment station
at least 50 per cent, as the smallest
result, and the highest result gave us
300 per cent, increase over the field
not sprayed.
Scab is also a disease and may live
in the soil for five years, even when
there are no potatoes planted during
that time. It is a simple process to
cleanse our seed potatoes and get
them free from scab. Bathe your
seed potatoes in a weak solution of
corrosive sublimate for an hour and
a half, having them clean to begin
with, and you will secure clean seed
potatoes.
Formula for Bordeaux mixture 5
pounds of blue vitrol and 5 pounds
of lime to a pound of water. Use
quick lime, for if air slaked lime is
used you may kill your vines. Slake
the lime in a small amount of water
and strain it off. An old door screen
is a good strainer. Be sure you strain
out every lump. Dissolve the vitrol
in a dish of water and strain it off in
to the barrel of water. This is for
50 gallons of water.
('over all the top of your leaves
with this mixture and you have saved
your potatoes.
Question Would you soak your
potatoes whole or cut I Whole, al
ways. Mr. Beecher Does it make any dif
ference in blight whether manure or
fertilizer is used? It is moreliable to
blight when we use manure than when
we use commercial fertilizer.
How late in the season did you keep
vour potato tops green t
This year they were green till the
7th of October, and were then killed
by irost.
Mr. Putnam Will the old varieties
run out ?
Yes. We ought to change our seed
every three or four years.
Clement Smith My experience in
raising potatoes shows that they are
the most profitable crop I can raise.
I use a small amount of manure and
a liberal lot of phosphate, and last
year the blight did not ailed them
I do not plant deep but harrow the
field and use the horse hoe to bring
the dirt up around them and cover
them.
Prof. Jones said he preferred late
planting for profit. Adjourned.
evening session.
The meeting was opened by music
by the orchestra of Johnson, after
which Mr. Arms spoke of the "Aexi-
cultural exhibit at the world s Fair, '
mentioning the leading btate exhibits
and dwelling somewhat at length on
the position held by Vermont in the
dairy and live stock exhibits, m which
the speaker insisted, she led the world.
J. O, Sanford of the board spoke on
the subject of road making. Roads
are gettine better every year, but
still they are not satisfactory and we
ask for something better yet. It is
because other matters have got the
start of roads that the demand is so
great for better highways.
Mr. Newton Do you consider the
road machine a benefit as they are
now used ?
In some places they are not used at
all now and in other sections they
are indispensible. I consider the road
machine a useful machine.
What is the cheapest and best way
to fix sand roads in the absence of
stone ?
Round it up, keep the water out
and cover it with clay or gravel.
Mr. N. How can we fix a clay pit ?
Can't you put stone in and make a
good road ?
Mr. N. No. We have done it and
it's a clay pit just the same. But put
in more stone and gravel and remove
the water and you can have a good
road instead of a clay pit. We want ,
our roads for all years to come ; we
want to make better roads and per
manent roads and we can do so with
out much extra cost if we will take
care of what we have got, spending
our tax on permanent roads.
WEDNESDAY.
At the opening of the second day's
session the subject of "The Silo" was
discussed by Mr. Arms of the board.
He spoke of the necessity of a silo
usually, for success in the manage
ment of a farm, especially a dairy
farm.
Question What is the cost of a silo
to hold 100 tons?
Mine holds over 150 tons and cost
about $100. Build your silo one
thickness of matched sheathing and
paint with tar paint inside.
Mr. Sanford discussed ensilage and
cautioned farmers to guard the cor
ners from bulging out. Tie the silo
so it cannot get away. In filling your
silo be careful to pack it at the sides
and in the corners, and in finishing
off the top leave it highest in the mid
dle, and it will settle toward the sides
and save the loss of poor ensilage
there. In planting make your rows
as for corn raising in hills or drills.
Srve the Bunshine of the summer for
our winter use. Use such variety o
corn as will grow as large as possible,
and grow good ears. I grow Sanfortf
corn. Mr. Sanford advised the grow
ing of Indian corn, but the cost of
cutting, setting up and husking is so
great it makes us ask, "does it pay?"
I believe that the cheapest and best
way to harvest, save and feed fodder
corn is from a silo.
Do you raise corn for the grain ?
No.
Can it be raised to advantage?
I think it can, and the stover of
field corn can be put into a silo to
good advantage.
AFTERNOON.
The meeting was opened by Mr. Q.
C. Fisher of Cabot by an address on
"The Dairy Cow and Her Care." He
said that the great increase in the
yield of butter per cow was due in a
great measure to the added intelli
gence and knowledgewhichourdairy
men gained from the influence of as
sociated knowledge. My choice for a
perfect dairy cow is the Jersey. Ex
periments made at the dairy tests at
Chicago show a Jersey to be the most
available for butter making purposes.
A pound of butter can be made from
them for less cost than from any
other breed.
On my own farm when I began with
seven cows, making 100 pounds each
cow per year, seven cows, a few
sheep and team was all my farm
would keep then. I had no silo at
that time. Now, with a full Jersey
herd and silo, 1 am keeping on the
same farm more than 40 head of
stock, and from my 20 or more cows
1 have made more than 400 pounds
from each cow per year.
Begin with a good breed, good
milking stock on each side, and then
be sure to give them good feed and
the best of care. Without the silo I
could not make butter at a profit.
Mr. Smith What kinds and pro
portion of meal do you feed?
I feed 100 pounds corn meal, 50
pounds cottonseed meal, 50 pounds
gluten meal and 20 pounds linseed
meal with 200 pounds bran.
Mr. Smith How do you raise a
calf to make a cow ?
My rule is to keep your calves
growing until they are two years
old.
Mr. Smith Do you feed your heif
ers very heavy in meal just before
they drop their calves?
No. We have to be careful not to
give too heavy feed just before
calving, lest you lose quarters of
their udders.
Do you meal a cow just after
calving?
No. Feed very carefully for 36
hours after calving, and by that time
it is comparatively safe to feed lib
erally. Mr. May was asked to state re
garding the proper ripening of
cream. He wished it ripened at a
low temperature and wants his but
ter made from ripened cream.
What temperature do you ripen
at i
Sixty degrees?
A great interest was shown in the
discussion, and the speakers held
the attention of the audience every
moment ot the session. Adjourned
Leach, Shewell & Sanborn Exhibit
As already stated in one of our
former issues the exhibits of the edu
cational publishers will for a long
time linger in the minds of the many
visitors to the World's Fair. The
exhibits were uniformly tasteful and
interesting. That of Leach, Shewell
& Sanborn was unquestionably
among the best and most complete
exhibits in this line. The valuable
books which have been issued from
time to time by this progressive and
growing firm make a great collection
which will attract any student,
These productions were well display
ed ana very neatly arranged, and
were presented in the most compre
hensive manner. Many of the books
are so familiar to the great school
public of this country that a visit to
this booth was a real pleasure and
had the tendency to make a school
feel perfectly at home. The rapid
growth of Leach, Shewell & Sanborn
has been due to the fact that they
have placed only the very best books
on the market. They have had more
than the material success of their
business at heart. They have striven
to win for themselves the confidence
of the school public by giving them
the results of the best aud most ad
vanced thoughts in education. In
this they have succeeded admirably
The extent of their Western busi
ness is largely due to that splendid
book man and manager, C. A.Sibley,
of high attainments, splendid busi
ness capacity and energy, who has
endeared himself to all those with
whom he has come in contact. He
knows the value of school books and
can discuss them intelligently and
present their relative value and
merits more lucidly than many other
men. bchool Board Journal.

MCFARLAND LANDOX.
At five o'clock Wednesday, Dec. 20,
Oscar A. McFarland and Miss Persis
L. Landon, daughter of O. B. Lan
don, were married at the bride's home
in Johnson. The marriage is one in
which the entire community has been
interested, as the contracting parties
are among our best known and most
popular young people, Mr. McFar
land's father having been for many
years one of the best known mer
chants of the town and county, while
Miss Landon, besides being a daugh
ter of one of Johnson's most enter
prising business men, is widely known
because of her musical accomplish
ments and her zeal in church work.
The clergyman was the Rev. Albert
Donnell of the Cong'l church, the
Episcopal ceremony being used. The
marriage certificate given by the
clergyman was a unique one for this
part of the country, being an auto
graph certificate,, containing blank
pages for the autographs of the wed
ding guests. It was made in Bur
lington in accordance with Mr. Don
nell's order, and is very handsomely
desicned.
Because of the delicate health of
the bride's mother the wedding invi
tations were confined to the immedi
ate relatives and not more than a
half-score of family friends. These,
however, made quite a large com
pany, as both families are widely con
nected. Miss May Hammond of Bur
lington, was maid of honor, and Mr.
Will Landon, brother of the bride,
was best man. Miss Allie Hammond
of Burlington, played the wedding
march. The bride's gown was a very
becoming one of cream Lansdowne,
with swansdowijadjace trimmings.
The maid of houorwore a heliotrope
gown. The presents, some of which
came from points as far distant as
Louisiana and California, were nu
merous, and, there is no need of say
ing, valuable.
The bridal party left on the G:30
train, and after a short trip will re
turn for the reception to be given the
evening ot Doc. 2 1 th, by the groom's
mother, lhe young: people will re
side at the groom's homein. Johnson.
The Olden Times.
SEVENTY-FIVE AND EIOHTY YEARS
AGO.
By Aunt Susie Lamp.son
East Cambridge, Vt.,1
Dec. 18, ism.
Mr. Editor:
I was reading in the Youth's Com
panion the Thanksgiving number
the article entitled, "The Contriv
ances of the Olden Times, Seven ty
Five and Eighty Years Ago," which
brought to my mind some other
things which the young folks may
like to know, so "Aunt Susie
thought she would write another
letter upon the olden times.
The articles pictured out in that
piece were all correct, and thev
brou-rht to my mind when wh had
the old Dutch-back chimney; the
log house; the open fire-place, with
the crane, upon which were the
hooks for the kettles and on wash
ing days they had a large brass, or
iron, kettle that hung over the fire
on the crane to heat the water and
boil the clothes, which were then
washed by hand and not with ma
chines or different kinds of soap as
now. However, when they were fin
ished and hung out to dry they
looked as white as need be.
Women used ovens in those davs
in which an enormous amount of
provision, enough to last a week.
could be baked at once; consisting
of brown-bread, wheat-bread, rye-
bread, beans, pies, sweet-cake gin
gerbread, and sometimes a pudding.
They also fried a whole panful of
nut-cakes large, twisted ones, one
beinc nearly a meal. As they were
made of "riz" dough (not of soda
and milk as now) they were very
light and nice. As there were no
stoves, potatoes could not be baked.
but were roasted in the embers (as I
told you in one of my lormer letters),
when done being mealy and nice and
plenty good enough for anvbodv.
even though it were a kiDg. There
were no potato bugs or cabbage
worms then, for the land being new
was not alive with those obnoxious
pests.
At the dawn of fall the beef was
dressed, "all hands" taking hold
to help clean the tripe. This done it
was washed and boiled, being as
tender as a chicken when lifted from
the kettle. It was then put into a
pickle,, and seasoned to taste, after
which it' was suitable to eat warm or
cold. After the hogs were killed,
sausages were made and a pleasant
sight too it was to watch them. The
meat was chopped until very fine
with the old chopping-knife, then
seasoned with sage, pepper, salt and
cloves, well mixed, and then put into
the small intestines.
In the olden times children did not
attend clubs and parties every night
in the week, but remained at home to
study and learn all they could, de
voting their spare time to helping
their parents in various ways. Girls
were always willing to set the table
for the meals, which did not consist
of as many courses then as nowa
days; neither did the people have so
many dishes to wash, but enough to
get along comfortably, and were
made of pewter. There were few
earthen dishes then. Wooden trench
es, as they were called, were used
for the children to eat upon, for thpy
would not break. Wooden bowls
were also used. Peddlers then car
ried nothing but wooden ware.
In the spare room, so called, the
people had a bed with a high post
Dcostead and curtains all around it,
made of beautiful curtain cloth,
which looked very nice. The chil
dren all enjoyed these things.
When Thanksgiving time arrived,
in the olden times, the children and
grandchildren gathered at grand
father's to spend Thanksgiving.
How happy they seemed as they lis
tened to grandpa's stories, while he
sat, with his steel-bowed spectacles
on, in his old arm-chair, saying,
"Now don't all talk at once," for
Harry or Tom would be anxious to
ask questions. The girls sat at the
tables, not extension tables such as
we have now, for they were unknown,
but at tables placed alongside one
another. When the dinner was
ready, and grandpa had asked the
blessing, all partook of the bounti
ful repast, including chicken-pie,
baked Indian pudding, gingerbread,
sweet-cake, mince, upple, and pump
kin pie, nut-cakes and other good
things.
Before the happv party dispersed
grandpa would read a chapter from
the Bible and offer prayer. So
fervent would his petition be, and
so powerful his offering, that to the
throng it would seem as though
earth and heaven had met. In the
olden times a day so happily spent
was long remembered.
"Aunt" Susie mav never write
another letter to the young folks,
and in this wishes them all to be
good always that they may be hap
py here and hereafter. She will now
close with the accompanying verse:
This year my oite is eighty-seven ;
In this a true account is given
Of how they cooked, and what they done,
And how they lived when I was young.
The New York Sun gives this sensi
ble prescription foravoidingthe grip:
Keep your general health as good as
possible, be careful not to catch cold,
live temperately, breathe pure air,
avoid bad habits, and take enough
sleep.

for poultry is not up to expectations ami
not many Kales bave ljeeu recorded up to
date. There is not, however, a large
quantity of fresh killed stock iu the mar
ket. Some inquiries are made for turkeys
which are selliiiK as follows; Northerns,
13 to 15 cents; and westerns, 11 to 14 cents.
Western fowls are calling for 9 to 10 and
northern at 12 cents. Chickens are slow

cents; fair to good can be placed at 9 and
10 cents.
Eggs.
There is little change in the price ruling'
in the egg market and business while
firm is not active enough to warrant an
advance on present rates. There is a
scarcity in the stock of fresh eggs and, in
several instances, the finest fresh have
brought as much as 36 cents, while tho
eastern fancy call for 30 to 35 cents, east
ern fresh 27 to 2!l cents, provincials 24 to
26 cents, westerns 22 to 24 1-2 cents, limed
la 1-3 to 21 cents.
