B08TON WOOL MARKET. The market for wool maintains a firm tone to values, while the demand continues moderate. Manufacturers are yet buying supplies us they require the raw material to make up orders for woolens booked, and no disposition is shown to stock ahead. While the feel ing generally favors higher prices for wool before the winter Is over, manu facturers show no speculative disposi tion and appear content to meet their Immediate needs. The prices obtained for spring woolens was low compared with the cost' of wool, and manufac turers are doing all they can to pre vent the latter from advancing in cost until they get these goods covered by the purchase of the raw material to make them up. Fleece wools hold in a firm position, and very fine wools, as well as me dium grades, are being taken quite freely. The supply of these wools is moderate, and, as stocks become re duced, the tendency of holders Is tow ard firmer prices. The price of Ohio washed delaine holds firm at 36c, with seme holders yet not disposed to offer at this figure. For unwashed and un merchantable Ohio delaines about 26 28c. is the price, with unwashed cloth ing grades at 2424V4c For washed XX and above Ohio fleeces the market holds firm at 8434c, while No. 1 washed Ohio wools are quotable at 33c. Michigan delaine is quotable at about 3233c. with Michigan X at 2728c. and No. 1 at 3233c For one-quarter and three-eighths blood unwashed wools the range is about 25 25 c. for Ohio and 2424c for others, these wools being in very moderate supply, and some holders are asking Vie. above these figures. Half-blood unwashed fleeces continue scarce and firm, with Ohio at 25H26o. and Michigan at 24H25c. There is a firm market for pulled wools, with a steady demand for lambs B supers, while A and C supers are going fairly. For extra A supers the market continues nominal on the scoured basis of 6660c with fine A supers at 4750c. and A supers at 44 46c For lambs' B supers sales aver age on the scoured basis of 42 43c, with C supers at 3234c.

Bradstreet's for Oct 17 says: General trade and industry win lack Milliner and Hairdresser, the spur of Insistent demand which has been so conspicuously present In the autumn of recent years. Excep tions to thli are noted In the south west, at sonse points In the northwest and on the Pacific coast. In the cen tral west business Is fair, but at the eaRt the quietness Is Increasing and reports from the south are rather less optimistic, if some portions of Tennes see and Florida, where crop yields are especially good, are excepted. Reasons for this are not fur to seek. Sympa thetic reflection of depression In secur ities is shown in more conservative buying at wholesale. Crops generally are slow to move. Cereal producers are apparently disin clined to accept present prices for their products, and the lower prices for cot ton reached some time ago. with much ess favorable advices from that crop. loud .the southern prospect slightly. The shut downs of Iron furnaces fall o stimulate values In this line. There ore. however, some very fa vorable features in the situation.

SL Foreign Apple Markets. Editor New England Farmer: Cable advices from London, Liverpool, Glas gow and Manchester report a most ac tive demand for American and Cana dian apples. There are over two hun dred thousand barrels of American and Canadian apples landing there this week. The demand is excellent and prices are slightly higher than last week. Baldwins, Greenings and North ern Spies are selling at J3.SO'&14..tiO per barrel. Ren Davis and Seeks are sell ing at $3.25(0 $4.75. Fancy Kings In great demand and selling from $4.00 $4.50. Golden Russets $400 & $4.50 These prices are for perfectly sound fruit. Slack and slightly wasted bring from 50c.S$l.f0 less. My mall advices to hand to-day speak most encouragingly of future markets, as there is such a complete failure of the-apple crop throughout Great Britain, and In fact the whole continent of Europe. Buyers from France, Belgium and Prussia are In frequent attendance at the Liverpool and London sales. It really looks as If it was going to be a banner year for the American farmsr who has apples. Fine apples packed In the half barrel cases that I recommend are bringing from one-third more pro portionately than the above prices for barrels. George A. Cochrane, Apple Exporter. Boston, Oct 19.
