has about 4000 buBhuls remaining in
the warehouses, which he will "hip
about May lit, and for which he paid a
cent a pound. Mr. Aden says there
are ohly a few hundred lacks remaining
in the growers' possession, iand those are
being held on account of the farmers be
ing too busy putting ii their spring
crops to sack them, although some are
holding for still better prices but they
are not figuring on a loss of about five
cents pet 100 pounds a week on shrink
