Corrected to April 20, 1904,
EGGS ARB RULING FIRMER.
The eee market ia ruline firmer with
the receipts snowing a, decrease and the
demand better. The dealers sav that
never in 'recent years have they found
stocKs bo snort as during tbe present
season. The cold storage men are very
short and have exhausted every means
to oDtain sumcient supplies.
POULTRY IS SCARCER.
The receipts in poultry Wednesday
were very small but the demand is noth-
lne extra. Prices con'inue a trifle too
high for general uoneumetion. All sorts
of poultry find a ready sale with the pos
sible exception of geese.
COUNTRY CREAMERY IS LOWER.
The decline of 2 l-2c per ponnd o' 5c
per roll made in the quotations by the
city creameries has cansed a similar cut
in tbe prices on the outside product.
The country creamery but er, with but
one or two exceptions, is quoted at all
times & l-nc per pound lower tlian those
of the city creameries. The market is
in a very weak condition with stocks
piling up very fast. Still another cut in
the figures of both city and outside
stocks is . looked for in the near future.
POTATOES NOT COMING SO FAST.
The receipts of potatoes are not larze
today, but tbe demand continues at fe
ver beat Very laucy quotations are
being offered by the buyers but the
farmers ar so backward with their
spring work that they do not care to sell
at any figure.
ALL MEATS IN BETTER DEMAND.
The cooler weather has left the meat
markets in a better condition and Wed
nesday theie was a good demand for
both liogs and veal. The reoeipts of
veal Wednesday were slightly larger,
but all good stocks brought the quota
tions. There arrived, however, several
b td stocks which were not in a fit condi
tion to sell. The market quotations re
ASPARAGUS IS MORE PLENTIFUL.
The arrivals of California, Oregon and
Waila Walla asparagus are showing a
large increase and during tbe coming
week prices are expected to Bhow a de
cline. Oregon grass ia now being quoted
at about 7 1-2 and 8s per pound.
SALMON SCARCER BVERY DAY.
The receipts of salmon in this market
are a disappointment to the fish men and
most of the fish now being used in this
market at the present time comes from
the Sacramento river in California. On
account of shortage in the Columbia nd
Willameste river varieties the California
product is quoted slightly higher. Other
prices in the fish market show no

Tuesday in the venerable and dis

scandals, were quite unavailing, Sena.

form: "Do it today 1" That is the terse
advice we want to give you about that
backing cough or demoralizing cold with
which you have been struggling for sev
eral days, perhaps weeks. Take some
reliable remedy for it to-day and let
that remedy be Dr. Boechee's German
Syrup, which has been in use for over
thirty-fivo years. A few doses of it will
undoubtedly relieve your cough or cold,,
and its continued ubo for a few days will
cure you completely. No matter how
deep-seated pour cough, even if dread
consumption has attacked your lungs,
German Syrup will surely effect a cure
as it has done before in thousands of ap
parently hopeless cases of lung trouble.
