e Eggs have ahown a slump the e
laat week, owing to large ar-
rivals, and a decline In price was ,e
all that saved an accumulation e
e of atocka. a great many bad e
eggs are coming in and we e
would advise ahlppers not to e
e hold atock too long before ship- e
pin. v e
l Dressed meats are easier on e
e account of warmer weather. We e
l would advise shippers to send in e
e stuff in good condition only, e
e as it Is not all a bed of roses e
e for handlers.
