EGOS ARE WEAKER.
Th local egg market shows consider
able weakness today on account of the
larger receipts and tbe smaller demand
at tormer prices. Today the price wnt
down and th i highest figure now ruling
is 37 '-j cents and if is much doubted at
this time whether the market will go
any ;higher in the near future. The
reason for the reaction in the egg market
is because the price has been strained
beyond the reason for tbe lresh stocks
when the figures get beyond a certain
lia.it the cousumption drops off and this
causes stocks to accumulate and lower
prices invariably follow. It is not
thougho that there will be any consider
able disturbance in the egg marae lor
some time, but it would he just as (tvell
tor the larmer to ship his goods into
market as soon as they are ready. This
ill save the market irom being glutted
at any particular time and help also to
keep the prices from going down too
much at a time. Accumulations of
eggs and their subsequent shipment into
the market at one time will nave but
one effect that of causing the market to
CREAMERY BUTTER IB WEAKER.
It is apparent to everyone on the
street that the butter market is not in
the very best of condition, the receipts
being cousiderably larger than they
w-re for some time and the demand is
rather off for the moment. It is almost
certain that the. price of creamery but
ter will go still lower should the present
eatber conditions exist lor some time.
Already tbe dealers report that they
are filled to overflowing with local pro
duct. Home of them are selling the best
reamery at 67 !4 cents per two-pouud
roll, while a malority of them are still
Bking 60 cents or 30 cents a pound
for tbat grade. Store and dairy butter
is coming in very fast at this moment
and tbe market id considerably weaker .
No changes occur in the1 quotations of
these two grades today .
LARGER POULTRY RECEIPTS,
The coming of the rains has brought
in a large Bupply of wild clucks froui np
the valley and this fact somewhat inter.
feres with tbe ordinary poultry, me
market has been quite bare of freBh
wild gme for some time and the receipts
of todu;' were moyed at fair prices.
GOOD HOP MOVEMENT.
According to various local hop men
there are now remaining in the state of
this year's crop about 15,000 bales and
the outwara movement continues just
aB active as it was during the previous
week. The extra fancies are still being
held at 25 cents, while 23 and 24 cents
is being offered and accepted for the
choice grades. The movement of primes
is very large at this time, but there
seems to be but little call for the very
WHEAT IS VERY WEAK.
The local wheat market shows con
siderable weakness on account of tbe
general lowering of quotations all over
tbe world. In tbe Kast there has been
a general reaction in the prices on wheat
and the same is true of the foreign
countries. The demand for flour from
the Orient is nominal and the dealers
have come to the conclusion that they
are filled up. This is especially true of
Japan, which country bought a very
large supply for war purposes, "ine
price of fbur in the Orient is not the
question now," says a local flour man,
'lor the reason that there is absolutely
no demand. If we shaved our flour
5 cents a barrel I don't think that it
would make a particle of difference in
the demand from those countries." The
local flour market continues about the
Bame with quotations and demand about
ORANGES WILL BE CHEAPER.
According to all present indications
the price of oranges this year will be
much cheaper than those tbat ruled a
year ago Hie larger-sized crop will be
tbe principal cause. According to the
estimates of prominent California o anee
men that Btate will produce about 27,
000 carloads of oranges this season The

Good Qualities of Chamberlain's
Ashburnham, Ont., April 18 19031
think it is onlvriuht that I should . trll
what a wonderful effect Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy has produced. The
day before Easter I was so distressed
with a cold and cough that 1 uiu not
think to be able to take anj duties the
next day, as my voice was almost choked
by the cough Tbe same day I :eceived
an order from you for a bottle of your
Cough Remedy. I at once procured a
sample bottle, and took about three
doses of the medicine. To my great re
lief the cough and cold had completely
disappeared and I was able to preach
three times on Easter Day. I know
that this rapid and effective cure was
due to your Cough Remedy. I make
this testimonial without solicitation, be
ing thankful to have found such a God
Sent remedy. Respectfully yours,
