This time la now approaching, and when
the annual decline Is made during the
latter part' of 'January, the price drops
faster than the declines can be noted,
'therefore the Front street trade wants
to clean up Its arrivals as soon as they
Rre received. If the eggs cannot be un
loaded quickly at one price, the value is
lowered until the movement starts, Jn
earnest. Prices drop so fast on those
occasions that a person buying eggs in
Ihe morning could purchase the same
quality later In the day from I to 8c a,
doen less. That is exactly the reason
why those who really sell Oregon eggs
are not holding out for 42 o now. They
are afraid of the market, andwant to
. protect themselves as well as their ship
j.era from securing Btill lower Talues
than now in effect. . , ( ...
