q Shipper or chicken anould Do
vary careful In. acndlng atocka to -
d market durln th nxt few
4 weeks. At tbia time of the year d
q there la always a tendency to
force arrivals rpo,tlie market
and this always results In lower .
d prices bturta; obtaJncJ. The price 4
d of chickens ts always In the
. hands of the' shipper to make , a
d or break. By heavy ahlpmenta e
d they force valnea down and by
q light ones they; obtain fully aa
4 much money as If heavy ones q
d were mn.de. Tha blockade, of 4
. traffic to the north by -tha -
floods force all arrivals upon '
d this market when they are least d
wanted. The trade at this time
q Is crying for hens, but.lt would
