day that the greater part of the wool
in the Baker district had already been
bought from the growers and at prices
approximately 3 cents higher tnan
those paid last year.
Growers have been paid from 16 to
17 cents for fine wool, while last year
the ruling price was from 13 to 14

and that of fine wool lessened. The
prices are more nearly equal for the
various grades of wool.
